Heating Safety Tips for South Beach?

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

A portable space heater is heating a room in a house. We restore fire damage in Miami Beach.

SERVPRO® of Miami Beach wants everyone to have a safe and fire-damage-free winter season. Here are some heating equipment safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater
  • Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters
  • Never use your oven to heat your home
  • Have a qualified professional install stationary space heating equipment, water heaters, or central heating equipment according to the local codes and manufacturer’s instructions
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional
  • Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed
  • Always use the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel-burning space heaters
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container.
  • Keep the container a safe distance away from your home
  • Test smoke alarms at least once a month
