Top "Uncommon" Fire Hazards in Your Home
We all know about the traditional fire hazards in our lives. Unattended stoves, candles, grills, and many more that you should be extra careful with every day. But for every traditional fire hazard you know about, there’s most likely an unusual fire hazard nearby that you might not realize can be an issue. Although these are not typical to cause fires they can happen. Making sure that the below appliances and areas of your property are cleaned properly and regularly can help reduce fires significantly. It’s always important to know what they are so you can properly maintain them.
- Toaster ovens
- Pests and critters
- Bathroom exhaust fans
- Air conditioners
- Range hoods
- Overgrown trees and shrubbery
- Dryer vents
- Unwashed rags
These items or appliances can run the risk of doing massive damage to your home if they are not properly cleaned or maintained. Because they’re not traditional sources of fire, it can be easy to overlook them and their upkeep. So, to keep your and your family and/or employees safe do yourself a favor and make sure you do some simple regular maintenance to protect your home and family from unexpected fires.
