Fire damage can be catastrophic for your home, in some cases even leaving your house uninhabitable. It’s important to know what causes house fires so you can stay on top of things in your home.


Cooking, whether on a gas or electric heater can cause fires to flare up in your home. One common cause of this is water being introduced to hot oil in a pan, so make sure to cook with caution!

Electrical Issues

If your electronic belongings have shoddy wiring or the outlets have started to malfunction, you could be at risk of causing a house fire. Always have a home thoroughly inspected before you move in and keep an eye on your devices throughout your time there.


Heaters, especially space heaters and things of the sort are a common cause of house fires. Make sure to follow any spatial allowance guidance with anything like this.


The candle is one of the only times we actually like to see fire in the house, but remember that if you don’t give them plenty of space and make sure to blow them out properly, they could cause something much less pretty.


This one is simple enough. Just smoke outside when you can, your furniture will thank you for the lack of odor, and you might save your own life.

If you have the bad fortune of suffering fire damage at home call us today and we’ll make it "Like it never even happened."
