Avoiding Heating Fire Damage In The Omaha Metro
Heating and electrical malfunctions are some of the top causes for residential fires, resulting in millions of dollars in smoke damage and fire damage annually.
As the temperature drops, the need for heating appliances grows resulting in a spike in residential fires during the early heating season. The increased use of space heaters, often placed too close to furniture and other flammable items and/or left on at the end of the day causes several business fires each winter.
A majority of electrical fires are caused by faulty outlets and old appliances. Everyday use of electrical wiring can cause tears which can be a fire hazard. Light fixtures are another cause of electrical fires, often with incorrect wattage incandescent bulbs or when placing flammable material too close to the fixture.
