Your boiler system needs to be clear of clutter so be sure not to store flammable items, such as boxes and newspapers, etc. in that area. This is something that many homeowners may forget when storing belongings, out of sight out of mind.
Most homeowners don’t realize that the laundry room can often be a source of home fires. Due to the duct that connects to the back of the dryer that can collect flammable lint. Homeowners should have their duct cleaned at least once a year. Did you know that your dryer doesn’t capture 100% of lint? A portion of it ends up in the ducts, which is very hazardous. If you have too much dryer lint built up in the duct, you could have a possible fire on your hands!
Unfortunately, even with all of the proper precautions taken, fires can still happen. That’s why you need reliable home insurance coverage that will protect you in the event of a fire. Get a homeowners insurance quote and compare a few different companies so you have a policy that fits your needs and can protect your home and belongings in the event of fire damage, theft, vandalism, etc.
Last but certainly not least, change the batteries!! Be sure to put fresh batteries in smoke/carbon monoxide detectors and have fire extinguishers placed in areas of the home that may be prone to fire such as the kitchen laundry room, near the fireplace, etc.
