Kids are cute, fun, adorable, and full of life. They also find their way into every nook and cranny of every room in the house, which is why it’s so important to childproof your home and exercise caution to protect them from burns and fires. The fire disaster restoration professionals at ServiceMaster of Rochester want to help you prevent fire damage in your Rochester, MN, home. These simple tips below will help you to protect your children, as well as your home from fire and fire damage!

  1. Install and check smoke detectors. Be certain smoke detectors are installed throughout the house, particularly in bedrooms. Once installed, check the batteries and be sure the alarm is working properly at least two times per year.
  2. Keep flammable items out of reach. Items such as matches, lighters, gas, and candles should be kept out of reach of children. Put them in a higher cupboard or locked away.
  3. Install baby gates. If you have a baby or young child who tends to find their way to any activity, be sure to install baby gates to keep them away when you’re cooking, grilling, or if you have a fireplace or wood stove.
  4. Use a high chair or other safe area when cooking. Don’t risk tripping or spilling hot grease or liquids on a child when you’re scurrying around the kitchen making dinner. Use a high chair or restrain them to certain areas away from the kitchen while you prepare dinner.
  5. Teach what to do if clothing catches fire. Stop, drop, and roll. Spend a few minutes to explain and teach your children what to do if their clothing catches fire.
  6. Practice an evacuation plan. Sit down as a family and have an evacuation plan that everyone understands.
