A house fire is a devastating occurrence and unfortunately, in newer homes, these fires can be even more destructive. Since many of our newer model homes contain more synthetic materials and have open floor plans - house fires can spread more quickly, causing irreparable damage and are even more deadly compared to some older homes.Follow these steps to ensure your home does not become part of the over $7 billion in property lost in the U.S. each year to house fires. Wiring: Whether your house is new or old, damaged wiring is a big deal.  Call a licensed electrician for a home inspection. Fireplace: If you have a wood-burning fireplace, have your chimney cleaned every year. Gas-burning fireplaces should be inspected annually by a technician specializing in the brand of your fireplace.
