Eight Flammable Household Items In Your Home

Look around your house, do you see hair mousse/spray, nail polish, paint thinner or hand sanitizer? Chances are you have a wide variety of flammable liquids and supplies under your roof and don’t even realize it.

Flammable liquids and common household items cause more than 43,000 home fires each year, according to the National Fire Protection Association. The chances that they’ll set your house on fire are slim if the right precautions are made. As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to make sure that the cap is on securely and, if it spills, clean it up properly.

Handling Spills

Flammable liquids don’t catch fire themselves. It’s the vapors they give off the burn. If you spill a flammable liquid, open windows immediately. Don’t use fans or other electrical devices. After cleaning up a spill, take the towel out of the home and dispose of it. If it is saturated with the liquid, use a zip-lock bag. If you get liquids on your hands, don’t wipe them on your clothes or your pants or shirt may become flammable. If your clothing does become contaminated, spot-wash it by hand, then dry it on a line. Avoid using a washer or dryer, which can sometimes ignite the clothing.

The first step in the restoration process is clearing the location. Debris must be removed. Standing water from extinguishing the fire must be extracted. Decisions need to be made regarding whether to keep or dispose of items found in the fire remnants. If items are to be saved, steps will be taken to clean, restore, or repair them.

After clearing the area, the cleanup process begins. From neutralizing the smoke odors to cleaning your entire business from ceiling to floor, all evidence of the fire is eliminated. Dehumidifiers and fans are brought in to make sure all surfaces are dry to prevent mold and mildew from forming.
