FIRE DAMAGE CLAIMS CHICAGO
THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF FIRE DAMAGES
EQUIPMENT AND APPLIANCES
Any heat-generating item (heaters, toasters, stoves, coffee makers, clothes dryers) or item that gets hot after prolonged use (fans, computers, etc) has the potential to be a fire hazard. If cooking containers are left unattended, they can also trigger a fire that is otherwise avoidable.
ELECTRICAL DEVICES AND SYSTEMS
Any device powered by electricity can potentially start a fire, and lighting equipment that overheats is the most common of these items. Inadequate electrical work in a house or business— incorrect grounding, loose wires, improperly connected circuits — is also an often unrecognized threat to homeowners.
GAS AND CHEMICALS
Sources of propane gas and natural gas can easily trigger house fires. An accidental spark mixed with a minor leak can cause a combustible issue. Inadequately mixed household chemicals may also cause combustion, making it crucial to execute such activities outdoors.
Chimneys may trigger fires if soot is not properly cleaned or disposed of. Regular chimney maintenance may be scheduled in order to help to avoid this risk.
Although candles are a major trigger of dangerous fires throughout the winter holiday season, Christmas tree lights and various lighted decorations are also triggers. If live trees do not receive proper watering, they may dry out and become an easy target for hot lights to incinerate.
House fires are often caused by negligence from smokers. In some circumstances, people fall asleep smoking and their couch, chari, or bed may catch fire in the process, quickly resulting in death. Disposing of ashes from ashtrays while they are still hot can ignite fires in wastebaskets as well.
During summer months, early evening or afternoon lightning storms are in peak season and may cause fires. Homes near forests or other areas with many trees are especially vulnerable to strikes of lightning that may ignite the surrounding landscape.
FIREPLACE OUTSIDE / BBQ GRILL
Summertime increases this risk with the amount of time spent outdoors. Proximity to combustible items such as dry grass or even a grass leak can cause a barbecue grill to have an uncontrollable flame. The likelihood of such issues occurring can be reduced by placing the grill on tile, cement, stone or another fireproof base.
Varied natural disasters such as wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning, storm surges, and electrical shorts may cause any of the above issues as well as various others that lead to devastating fire. One must be on alert during such situations in order to attempt damage reduction.
