The nicest home in the world may well become a nightmare should it pose a hazard for our safety and health. Such hazards can be the use of harmful chemicals and substances when the house was built such as asbestos, or a home that would pose severe fire hazard risks
without the proper fire prevention measures in place.
A good example here would be if you happen to have an open fire place but you don’t have any smoke detectors or fire extinguishers anywhere in your home. One spark is all it needs and a fire could easily break out. In such a case this is nothing but a recipe for disaster.

- Have fire extinguishers in your home. You will never know if and when you may need them, but rest assured if there’s an emergency a fire extinguisher can be a life-saver.
- Install smoke detectors everywhere in your home where appropriate. Such areas where smoke detectors should be considered would be your kitchen and hallways and your basement and attic.
The above are very affordable and simple to establish fire prevention measures that any home owner should take advantage of. The reward will be greater safety and security for your loved ones along with the possibility to prevent major structural damage to your home when a fire is detected early on.
