What Causes Home Fires?

The best way to keep your home safe from fires is to learn what is most likely to cause them. These are the most common reasons for home fires in the United States:

  • Cooking accidents- Leaving a hot stove unattended, keeping flammable materials near the stove, and grease spills can all spark fires.
  • Heating equipment- Space heaters, fireplaces, wood stoves, and central heating units can all cause fires if they are used or maintained improperly.
  • Electrical accidents- Loose or frayed cords, older electrical outlets, inadequate wiring, and running cords near flammable materials can all cause house fires.
  • Smoking- Falling asleep while smoking, dropping lit cigarettes, and spilling hot cigarette ashes cause hundreds of house fires every year.

How Smoke Can Damage Your Home

When a fire has been put out, it's easy to assume that the extent of the damage is finished. However, fire and smoke damage can have lasting effects on your home and personal property. Here is what happens after a fire:

  1. Soot residue begins to settle as soon as a fire is put out. Soot is highly acidic, which means that it will begin to stain surfaces right away. Porous surfaces such as plaster and wallboard are particularly vulnerable to discoloration.
  2. In a few hours, the long-term effects of smoke damage become more obvious. Smoke reside will damage floors, carpeting, clothing, finished wood, and painted walls. It will also begin to rust and corrode metal.
  3. If your home is not treated right away by a smoke damage restoration company, much of your property may need to be replaced. The longer soot is allowed to remain in a home, the more comprehensive deterioration will be.
