5 Easy Tips To Fireproof Your Home


    Sadly, since the Philippines is a tropical country with temperatures blazing during the dry (summer) season, it’s inevitable that fire poses one of the biggest threats to the house that we’ve worked so hard for. In fact, according to the Bureau of Fire Protection, 2103 fire incidents have already been recorded in January and February 2022 alone.

    Nevertheless, the good news is that the incidence of fire is preventable. All you have to do is to be mindful of the risks and to put in place measures to protect your home from possible threats.

    Whether you’re house hunting or looking for ways to fire-proof your home, reducing the sources of fire can be done through these five easy steps.

    1. Monitor your home’s electrical system and appliances


    Sometimes, a fire starts with a faulty electrical system and suspect appliances. Practice safety with plugs and other electronic devices, even when you’re storing them in your home.

    If your house’s fuse box or breaker system is blowing up, there’s a chance that you’re overloading your outlet. Organize the plugs, monitor your home’s outlets, and contact an electrician should problems persist.

    Meanwhile, replace suspicious appliances. Looking for hints? If your appliances make peculiar sounds, smell weird, or cause sparks, better to have them removed from your home immediately.

    2. Install fire alarms—and have them checked regularly


    A functional fire alarm lessens the risk of a fire. Have a fire or smoke alarm installed in your home’s commonly frequented areas and make sure they’re installed on the ceiling. Trust us, these devices can warn you in case a fire breaks out.

    Make sure to have a fire extinguisher in your house for emergencies as well.

    3. Invest in furniture and other objects made of fireproof material


    Go through your house and double-check if you have stuff made of fire-proof material. If you don’t have the budget to change your furniture, make sure to keep essentials that are useful to you.

    As for fire-proof material, seek advice from furniture centers when it comes to getting objects made of synthetic and wool material. Don’t forget to keep flame-resistant chemicals stored for emergencies.

    If you’re looking to renovate your home, consider a fireproof design to protect your personal space. Luckily, many fire-resistant materials like concrete panels are now available in the market.

    4. Mind your distance


    Distance matters since it can save your life. Make sure to have your lamps, light bulbs, and other light sources positioned away from things that can easily catch fire. Consider using dual-pane windows to protect your home from getting into a fire as well.

    5. Keep emergency numbers ready


    Sadly, not all homes are located near a trusted fire station in times of emergency. Make sure to have a list of contact numbers, especially your most-trusted fire department, for important incidents.
