Sources of Fires in Ontario

Dealing with a fire is one of every homeowner’s worst nightmares, but did you know that in most cases fires are completely preventable? There are many different sources of house fires, but taking the proper preventative measures can eliminate most of them. From cooking accidents to appliance malfunctions, let’s look at the most common sources of house fires and how we can reduce your odds of ever dealing with one.
 
From 2009-13 in Ontario, 18 percent of fires involved cooking accidents, according to data from the Ontario Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management. Of course, cooking involves the safe use of fire and heat to prepare food, but sometimes the process doesn’t go as planned. This is especially true when a kitchen doesn’t have proper ventilation. Our kitchen ventilation cleaning services are ideal for both home and business owners who aren’t getting the proper ventilation in their kitchens, and can help remove built up dust, dirt and grease that can contribute to your risk of a fire.
 
Another common cause of fires throughout Ontario – and the rest of the world for that matter – involves heating and cooling systems. A buildup of dust and debris can make a furnace unsafe for use after just a few years, and the same can be said about air conditioning ducts. Our furnace cleaning service involves the use of air wash techniques that will ensure your furnace continues to run safely and efficiently.
 
Fires can also ignite during the use of everyday appliances like dryers. In most cases, this is because lint from clothing builds up inside the dryer lines. Unfortunately, lint is incredibly flammable, and can be a hazard if there is too much of it present in the ventilation system. Our dryer line cleaning service can eliminate the problem before you and your home are ever in danger.
 
Having a clean home is important for several reasons, and fire safety is near the top of the list. If you’re in need of any of the cleaning services we mentioned above, or any of the other services we offer, contact us today by calling 877-891-DUCT!
