As warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours herald the arrival of spring, many of us are eager to dive into outdoor cleaning and home renovation projects. However, before you grab that hedge trimmer or power tool, it's crucial to take steps to prevent house fires.

Clean Up Inside

Appliance malfunctions, particularly with clothes dryers, are a leading cause of house fires. Regularly cleaning the lint trap after every load is essential, and ensure nothing combustible, like boxes or cleaning supplies, is placed near the dryer. Also, keep the outside vent unobstructed to prevent system failures and potential fires. Regularly clean vents to remove dust and debris buildup.

Inspect Your Equipment

Equipment like grills and lawn mowers, unused during winter, can develop malfunctions or issues over time. Before using your grill, check gas lines and connectors for security, leaks, or dents in propane tanks. Inspect lawn mowers and outdoor equipment for gas leaks or other potential hazards. Even tiny leaks can pose significant fire risks.

Keep Debris Clear

Spring cleanup often involves clearing debris like fallen branches and vegetation. Stack debris far from your home, as dried branches and leaves can fuel potential house fires or wildfires. Prevention is key, so take care to minimize potential fuel sources.

In the unfortunate event of fire damage, SERVPRO® of Uptown and East Charlotte is here for you. Our rapid-response fire damage restoration team will work tirelessly to restore your home to its pre-fire condition promptly.
