Fire and Smoke Damage Worcester MA

Fire damage is not only a serious threat both to your home or property,but especially to the safety of you and your family. Now that the snow has finally melted here in Massachusetts, and the warmer weather finally arrives- so too does the threat of fire. Only in New England can you jump right from flood damage concerns into serious fire risk warnings due to lack of rainfall and above average temperatures! So here are a few tips from the American Red Cross to help prevent fire damage to your home and potential risk of injury.

Safety Should Always Come First


Fire Damage Prevention Tips

Identify & Eliminate Potential Fire Risk

While this seems like an obvious point, the change of seasons here in MA gives us the perfect opportunity to revisit and reevaluate potential risks.

Smoke Detectors

Checking fire/smoke detectors is the first priority for any home. Once a fire starts, you may have as little as 2 minutes to escape safely! The Red Cross recommends checking smoke detectors once a month, and be sure to have them installed on every floor of your home. This is also a perfect time to come up with a fire escape plan and practice it with your family. Practice your escape plan twice a year and time yourself to be sure everyone is out in under two minutes. Click here for the Red Cross Fire Escape Plan.


Make sure appliances are plugged directly into electrical outlets. Check wires and cords for signs of deterioration. When possible, keep appliances unplugged when not in use.

Matches and Flammable Items

Keeping matches and lighters out of the reach of children is very important! But don’t forget about household items that are highly flammable, such as paint remover, lighter fluid and more. Follow safety instructions as labeled on the package.
