Where do house fires start? The answer is: anywhere. If we all knew where they started, we could fix the issue before it ever happens.

But there are some areas of your home that are more prone to fires than other areas. What are they?

The first one is your laundry area. We all hear about dryer fires happening – but why is that? It is because of lint primarily.

Lint builds u inside the dryer hose until it gets thick, and can then catch fire. In fact, using dryer lint to start camp fires is one of the oldest tricks in the book.

The other area are chimneys and flues. There aren’t a lot of fireplaces here in Dallas Fort Worth, but do you have a water heater? Is it flued properly? When was the last time you had it cleaned.

Then there are electrical issues. The best way to find out about these is to have us perform a complete home inspection for you.

However you go about it, be sure to keep you and your family safe from house fires
