Learn Common Hazards that Lead to Fire Damage

Salton City is a census-designated place with an exciting history. It sits on the shores of the Salton Sea, an artificial water body formed accidentally when the Colorado River breached a Siphon diverting water to the Imperial Valley in 1905. Although envisioned as a resort community, its desert setting and many abandoned lots give it a somewhat ghostly atmosphere. Salton Sea State Recreation Area is the main draw to the area for its bird watching, fishing, boating, and camping opportunities.

Until the day an incident occurs, fire damage restoration at your Salton City property may seem like a distant reality. Knowing some likely fire hotspots in your house can help prevent such an inconvenient outcome. From our fire restoration experiences, SERVPRO® technicians can point out several areas in your home where fires can originate, threatening your property and your family.

Action-related sources

  • Unattended candles
  • Grease fires and unattended cooking
  • Improper cigarette disposal

Your actions and those of other house occupants may increase the risk of fires. Something as positive as meditating by any family member can raise the risk of fire if the soft glowing flame of a candle that soothes and calms you is improperly managed. Constant attendance and using the right candle holders when doing aromatherapy or setting the mood for a special occasion are some solutions SERVPRO suggests for preventing fires. The same level of caution should extend to other activities, such as constant observation when cooking and using suitable ashtrays to hold or stump out cigarettes, enhancing safety.

Equipment and hazardous material fire sources

  • Flammable liquid storage
  • Improper use of heating equipment
  • Malfunctioning electrical appliances

You may not associate your home with hazardous materials. However, if you store flammable liquids like gasoline, paint, or solvents, they can ignite and spread fires rapidly. Electrical appliances such as dryers, ovens, and toasters can ignite fires if they malfunction or overheat. Regarding heat, your space heaters and furnaces are a potential fire hazard, especially if you do not maintain them properly. Most of these risks are easy to avoid through caution and proactive maintenance.
