Summer is all about suntan lotions, bikinis and swimming for hours. Sometimes though, fires come alongside the summer months. Don’t think for a minute that your home will never be one of those houses which go up in flames. It could happen to anyone, so you’d best be prepared for that eventuality. The good news is that there are some things we can do to fire-proof our homes.
Check for gas leaks. Always make sure the gas tank is turned off when not in use.
Take extra care with candles. Some of us fancy lighting a candle or two to set the mood inside our homes, but we must always remember to never leave them unattended. Keep lit candles away from curtains or paper, because these burn easily.
Keep flammable items in their proper storage. The last thing you’d want to hear is that your precocious toddler has just grabbed that can of lapping compound and threw it in the fireplace. Make sure these combustible substances are well out of children’s reach.
An ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure. Keep your home fire-proof if you don’t want to see your dreams shoot up in flames.
