Prevent Fire Damage in Hudson, WI With Proper Furnace Maintenance

October 17th, 2014

ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning provides some furnace fire safety tips to prevent fire damage for Hudson homeowners.

So it begins. With Halloween approaching, the inevitable colder weather is not far behind. This time of year usually requires many of us here in Hudson, WI to perform different types of maintenance on our homes before the snow flies. Some of the more important tasks we at ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning recommend are rain gutter cleaning, HVAC ductwork cleaning, and furnace maintenance.

Of the three listed recommendations, we find that furnace maintenance is one of the more crucial targets to address first. Due to the inherent design of forced air heating, a furnace needs to ignite a flammable substance to create useful heat in our homes. Without a doubt, if a furnace isn’t kept maintained to safe standards, it can be a huge safety concern.

Here at ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning we have firsthand experience working with individuals unfortunate enough to face a house fire due to a malfunctioning furnace. Though our fire restoration services were helpful for those unfortunate families, there are things you can do to prevent fire damage from ever threatening your home in the first place.

Furnace maintenance consists of a yearly inspection administered by a licensed HVAC technician. Some of the areas the technician checks include the exhaust system, burner igniter, burner corrosion, heat exchanger leaks, safety shut off valve, blower motor and fan, and gas leaks. As you can see, there are quite a few things that need to be considered in order to label a furnace safely functional. This type of check is essential to the safety of you and your family year after year. Without this check your home could need fire restoration, smoke damage repair, soot removal, and maybe even water damage restoration after the flames of a fire have been extinguished.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to have your furnace maintenance performed. We all know it gets quite cold during January and February and that cold will test the safety and efficiency of every furnace around.

Fire restoration in Hudson, WI, as well as Menomonie, Boyceville, and Rice Lake, is a specialty of ours here at ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning, and though we are here to serve you, we really don’t want to see anyone get hurt or lose anything due to a fire.
