ServiceMaster DSI has provided fire damage restoration for many homes in Indianapolis, IN, but none are sadder than the ones where the damage could have been prevented in the first place with a few simple strategies.

Kitchen Fires: Holidays are a time for cooking for friends and family, and it’s also the time that most kitchen fires occur. Practice safe cooking this holiday season by never leaving food unattended on the stove, having a clean, grease-free oven, keeping flammable items such as potholders and towels away from burners, and ensuring a fully-charged kitchen fire extinguisher is quickly available.

Space Heaters: When the temperatures dip, some people use space heaters to keep chilly areas of the home warm. Fires often occur when units are unattended and overheat, or when blankets placed too closely ignite. Space heaters should never be used in place of residential heating, and shouldn’t be used at night when you sleep.

Electrical Fires: Holiday lights are pretty, but be sure you’re decking your halls safely. Overloading outlets or using old plugs should be avoided. Don’t run electrical cords underneath carpeting, and make sure you use cords rated for what you’re using them for, especially outdoor cords specifically designed for winter weather in Indianapolis.
