It can be stressful if your home has been damaged by fire. Not only do you have to deal with putting it out, which can cause water damage, you also have to worry about smoke, soot, and general cleanup and repairs. That’s why we’ve compiled this guide so you can know how to prevent fires, extinguish them, and repair damage.

How to Extinguish and Prevent House Fires

The best way to keep your home safe from fire damage is to prevent it. But, if a fire does happen, we’ve also provided a few tips to help you extinguish it and minimize the damage. Here are a few of the more common types of fires and what you can do about them.

Kitchen Fires

Whether it was caused by grease, a rag that was placed too close to the hot stove, or even an overloaded appliance, it’s important to know what to do if there’s a kitchen fire. What about before it even happens? Take these steps to be prepared and even prevent a potential kitchen disaster.

Grease Fires

Grease fires are some of the most common household fires. Unlike other types of fires, there are specific steps you should take to put it out properly. For example, did you know that throwing water on a grease fire won’t put it out? Instead, water makes it grow and spread. Learn why this happens and what actions you should take to properly take care of the grease and make sure it doesn’t happen in the first place.
