Winter Fire Safety Tips for Rochester Homeowners
Many of us are spending more time inside than outside because it's winter here in Minnesota and it's an extraordinary year of COVID-19. SERVPRO of Rochester has been on several home and garage fires this past year.
Here are a few fire prevention safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association.
- Never leave a candle unattended or in the reach of little ones. Blow out the candle when leaving the room.
- Working from home and using a space heater? Make sure that the cord is intact and not fraying. Recommended distance from any object is at least three feet. Make sure to turn off the heater or unplug it when leaving the room.
- Check your smoke detector to make sure it's working. If you hear that dreaded "chirp" noise, that means you need to replace the batteries.
If you find yourself in need of our services from fire & water damage to trauma or mold clean-up, SERVPRO of Rochester is here to serve and work with you.
