It’s Fire Season Here In Michigan

Every year, thousands of homes across Michigan are affected by house fires. Clogged dryer vents, open fireplaces, cooking mishaps, and many other hazards all increase your risk of a destructive fire affecting your home. Fortunately, there are a few Simple & Quick steps you can take to help protect yourself!

What You Can Do To Prevent House Fires

Each October, the NFPA makes fire safety front and center in order to help prevent fire disasters. Modernistic is proud to support Fire Prevention Month, and we would like to offer these Simple & Quick tips to help prevent house fires:

Check your smoke alarms!

Test and replace the batteries in all of your smoke detectors before they start chirping. Here’s an easy way to remember: change your smoke alarm batteries along with your clocks whenever there’s a time change.

Know where you keep your fire extinguishers!

Keep at least one fire extinguisher on each level of your home, and keep up on their expiration dates.

Don’t leave your heaters on!

Turn off portable heaters when you leave the room or when you go to bed. When you shut the lights off, shut off the heaters too!

Stay alert in the kitchen!

Keep a close eye on anything you are cooking, and try not to leave the kitchen while heating food.

Get the lint out!

Have Modernistic professionally clean your dryer vent once a year to remove flammable lint and debris.

No one wants to have to rebuild after a fire; We would know, Modernistic has been Fire Damage Restoration experts for years! By taking a few easy precautions you can avoid smoke odor, burn damage, and other complications from house fires. To learn more about Fire Damage Restoration, see our fire damage page here.
