Use these tips to avoid a house fire.

A fire can rip through your house in a matter of minutes, destroying everything that you have worked so hard for. Knowing some of the major causes of house fires and how to prevent them can help to keep your home and assets safe. Keep these house fire prevention tips in mind to give you the peace of mind that you deserve.

Check your wiring

Faulty outlets and wiring are one of the main causes of home fires. Look for signs of fraying on all electrical cords throughout your house and replace any damaged cords that you find. Know how much electricity your electrical system can handle to prevent any overloaded circuits.

Be careful in the kitchen

Never leave pots or pans unattended on your stove. If you are cooking anything in the oven, ensure someone is home at all times. Keep a fire extinguisher that is rated for grease fires in your kitchen and ensure multiple people in your family know how to use it.

Consider your clothes dryer

Regularly clean out the dryer vent to prevent the build up of lint. Your lint filter should be cleaned out after every load of laundry. Keep in mind that lint can also collect behind or under your dryer, so keep those areas clean as well.

Clean out your chimney

Hire a professional to clean out your fireplace and chimney before you start lighting fires this season. Creosote that builds up in the chimney can easily start a dangerous fire inside your chimney.
