Tis the Season for Home Fire Prevention with Service by the Dryer Vent Cleaning Clarksville Wizard
The Wizard is on a mission to eliminate fire hazards in his neighborhood through dryer vent maintenance and educating people
The number of residential fires increases during the winter holiday season. Firefighters expect to be called to the scene of at least one home fire on Christmas Day, which is most unfortunate for the firemen as well as the family who suffers the loss.
There are many thing that can lead to home fires. Factor in the holiday season when people are busy and distracted, and odds of a fire increase. Dryer Vent Wizard (www.clarksvilledryerventcleaning.com/) and the NFPA encourage residents and business owners to take precautions to protect their home and business from fire.
Each year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, firefighters are called to respond when people are enjoying festivities and not paying attention in the kitchen. Cooking accidents are common during the holiday season.
Overloading electrical outlets or using frayed extension cords are another cause of home fires with everyone anxious to try out their new electronic toys.
Over 80 percent of home fires are caused by heating devices. Never refill kerosene heaters while inside the home and avoid using extension cords with electric heaters, especially if they are old and frayed. Store kerosene outside of the home and away from heat sources as the fumes can be ignited by something as simple as a light bulb.
Dryer vent cleaning is important appliance maintenance, all year around. Have the dryer vent system professionally installed by a dryer exhaust specialist and have dryer vent cleaning performed regularly to prevent dryer fires and promote dryer performance.
Never leave the house or go to sleep with the dryer running. This goes for space heaters and Christmas tree lights as well. Here are some more tips to keep your home safe from fire:
• Use only non-combustible or flame-resistant holiday decorations
• Never use lighted candles near the tree and be sure to extinguish them before leaving home or going to sleep
• Make sure live trees are fresh and keep them watered
• Do not place the tree where it blocks an exit
• Use lights for their intended purpose, indoor/outdoor
• Check all lights for broken sockets or frayed wires.
• Replace burned-out bulbs with the correct wattage
• Do not use electric lights on a metallic tree
