Homeowners fire prevention tips by Mosaic Insurance in PrescottAs a homeowner, you will want to take steps in preventing a potential house fire. Fires can cause a great amount of damage not only to your property, but also to the many memories that you have made with your family in your home. In addition, fires can be extremely dangerous for those who are in the house at the time that the fire starts. Every homeowner should take advantage of these fire prevention tips brought to you by Mosaic insurance in Prescott.

Outdoor Fire Hazards

As the temperature climbs in Arizona the thought of preventing wildfires and damage to your home should become more important.

  • Outdoor Fire hazards include:
  • Dry leaves in gutters
  • Dry grass clippings
  • Dry brush
  • Sticks, and tree trimmings
  • Any garbage
  • Fire pits
  • Unattended BBQs
  • Lit Cigarettes

Aside from the outdoor fire dangers here are a few indoor fire prevention tips:

Your Home's Electrical System

One of the most common ways that a house fire starts is from faulty electrical wiring. Your electrical systems should be checked by a professional annually to ensure that you are not experiencing any issues. Some things that will be checked on your electrical system include:

  • Grounded Receptacles
  • Damaged Wiring 
  • Circuit Breaker Damage
  • Tripped Fuses
  • Power Surges

By hiring a professional to look over your system regularly, you are giving yourself some closure in knowing your home is safe for you and your family.

HVAC Systems Air conditioning and heating systems require semi-annual maintenance in order to ensure the safest home possible and to take the necessary steps in fire prevention. An overworked fan motor or a clogged filter can start a fire in just a matter of minutes. Regular HVAC maintenance will prevent a fire from starting in your home.

Flammable Liquids

If you have any flammable liquids within your home, they should be stored in areas where there is no ignition source present. You will not want to store paint cans, gasoline or other flammable materials near the stove, washing machine or dryer as this can start a fire easily. In addition to flammable liquids, it is important to keep your stove and other ignition starters clear of any garbage or debris such as paper which can catch on fire in just seconds.

Proper maintenance of your fireplace is crucial to preventing house fires. Be careful when using space heaters, keep your appliances clean and use caution when burning candles and oil lamps.

Having homeowners insurance is crucial should your attempts to prevent fire fail and result in a tragic house. Contact Mosaic insurance today to get a homeowners policy to fit your needs. Call 928-458-7374
