To give you a boost of confidence to let you sleep easy knowing you've done more to prevent an immolation of your home is North Eastern Cleaning's priority. Here are Three Steps you can take for prevention of a Fire.
STEP 1: Examine Your Place
One thing you can do is inspect your living space, there are many factors that could cause some sort of fire such as home electrical wiring, gas pluming, and even air conditioning; You can make the inspections yourself but it's best to just call a professional.
If you are going to make the inspections, check the status of your Home Electrical System first.
Here are some tips, however we strongly advise getting a professional.
Improperly Grounded Receptacles
Overloaded Circuit Breakers, Panel Boxes, Fuse Boxes.
Notice Flickering Lights
Check the Ground Cable
Step 2: Check Your Appliances
Keep your stoves and ovens clean. Watch for grease buildup. This surprising is a leading cause of kitchen fires that can quickly spread and do damage to other rooms. Also always remember to check your stove vent hoods, clean that filter regularly, and make sure to clean an exterior vent if it does indeed have one.
Check your power cords for your appliances. Look for missing ground prongs on the plugs and damaged insulation, replace if defects are found. Gifs like these are funny and humorous, however the danger is real and with little warning to properly act if a flame does occur.
STEP 3: SELF-CARE
Relaxing after a long day at work? Regularly smoke to relax? Well don't sit down or lie down when smoking. Chances are you'll be too tired and fall asleep. Also try to be careful with oil lamps, candles, and other open flame illuminations/decorations around other flammable objects.
