Space heaters are a great way to take the chill off of a room during the freezing winter months in Lakeview, but if they are improperly used, they become a fire hazard. According to The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), two in five deaths in space heater fires involve electric space heaters. SERVPRO® of Gold Coast /Lincoln Park /Lakeview responds to fire damage emergencies often during the winter months and knows the damage even a small fire can cause to a home or business. Our fire restoration technicians have the advanced training, equipment, and experience to restore damage caused by small and large fires. Here are some safety tips from the NFPA to help you prevent a space heater fire this winter:

  • Purchase a heater with the seal of a qualified testing laboratory.
  • Keep the heater at least 3 feet away from children, pets, people, and anything that can burn.
  • Place the heater on a solid, flat surface.
  • Plug the heater directly into the wall outlet, and never use an extension cord.
  • Turn off the space heater when leaving the room or when going to bed.
