Cooler air and shorter daylight hours herald the coming change of seasons. But amid the fall fun and festivities, don’t lose sight of these common household fire hazards, more common in the autumn months.
Portable heaters can be a handy way to take the chill out of a room. But portable heaters also trap dust and debris. All it takes is a small spark or fume to ignite a fire immediately.
The aromas of autumn are often captured in decorative candles. While they add an inviting touch to fall decor, candles can also be a fire hazard, quickly going from fall accent to fire hazard.
There’s nothing like cozying up to a warm fire on a chilly fall night, but if your fireplace hasn’t been properly maintained, that tranquil evening can quickly turn to tragedy. Burning cinders and debris in the chimney can spell trouble for fireplaces.
The fall can be a fun and beautiful time of the year, but it is important to stay aware of potential fire hazards. If you’ve had a household fire mishap, don’t try to clean up and repair the damage yourself. Contact the professionals at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County for more information or to schedule service.
