Be careful not to overload outlets in your home. Keep an eye out for damaged wiring that could start a fire. If you have a fire, call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians can Assess Your Home for Possible Preventable Damage from a Fire

You may find it surprising, but a variety of house fires continues to affect homeowners on a regular basis. Fire-related losses soar as many of you attempt self-repairs trying to limit the costs associated with fire, or simply do not want to report smaller fires that would raise your insurance rates.
 
The majority of fire damage reported throughout the Wrightsville Beach area includes fire-related losses caused by preventable incidents. Paying more attention, learning to use products safely, or having a qualified professional inspect your home for possible hazards can teach you how to avoid causing fires in your home.
 
One of the leading causes of house fires is faulty electrical wiring. As we put more emphasis on electronics as a society, these types of fires become more common. Frayed cords, cracked or broken connectors and even outlets can lead to a fire. It is important to keep an eye out for any damage that might pose risks to you and your family.
 
Always avoid covering electrical cords with flammable items, be aware of each socket’s capacity to avoid overloading circuits and learn the difference between surge protectors and regular power strips. While both allow you to install multiple devices, only surge protectors can help you avoid damage caused by electrical shorts or spikes.
 
When SERVPRO technicians inspect your property, we check everything. We have several years of experience providing homeowners with solutions that fit their unique situation. Whether you need professional technicians to help recover from a recent fire or want help eliminating possible hazards, we can provide you with an answer.
