Wood-burning fireplaces should be maintained regularly to function well during the cold season. Over time, soot and creosote accumulate in the chimney and it’s important to remove them often.
As winter is approaching, the days are getting shorter, and so it’s getting darker outside faster. For drivers, this means that the risk of a car accident is unfortunately increased.
Large amounts of mould can hide in homes and properties without being noticed.
It doesn’t take long before a small fire can engulf a whole house – sometimes in under 30 seconds. So when a fire occurs, there is little time to get out of the house.
For mould to grow fast, it needs an environment rich in moisture and organic material, and temperatures between 0 and 50 degrees Celsius.
Living in apartments poses several challenges when dealing with a fire. Apartment dwellers should know how to prevent fires, how to escape fires, and how to help keep fellow residents safe.
Crawl spaces typically collect high levels of moisture and humidity and so are prone to mould growth.
Although basements are mostly vulnerable to flooding and water damage, fires can also start there. This is because most people keep heat-generating equipment in the basement.
Wherever there’s moisture, mould doesn’t take long to appear. This goes for most areas in a home, including the attic.
Water damage is the most common cause of home insurance claims. This is because water can easily leak through the roof, escape the plumbing system, or come from other sources like faulty appliances.
