The Fourth of July is a day for celebrating! Stone Roofing Co., Inc., a Los Angeles Commercial Contractor suggests some information on how to protect and prevent a fire from a miss guided firework?
Remove All Debris and Branches.
While fireworks burn rather hot only briefly, that is all it takes to catch needles, leaves, pine cones and tree branches. Make sure to clear all debris and cut back any branches, limbs to reduce the availability of starting a serious fire.
Clean those Gutters.
Your properties gutters are another place where dry matter collects and can be a fire hazard. Pine needles, leaves and dried moss catch fire very quickly, so keep them from collecting in gutters and flat areas.
Inspect that Roof.
Check your roof for damage that you may not have known existed. Holes in your roof can allow sparks into your roof system where non-fire proof items can catch. If your roof happens to sport a blue tarp, that can be a fire danger. Inspect your roof for peace of mind.
If it’s not smart for you to be up on the roof top — even if you have done it in the past — contact Stone Roofing to look at your roof.
We hope you all have a SAFE and FUN Independence Day! Just take a few precautions before this Thursday to ensure your property is safe from any fireworks that may come in contact with your property!
Remember, Freedom is not free! Thank a Veteran or Soldier for their sacrifice!
