Here at Thistle DKI in Las Vegas, we know that we’ve already written to you about fire safety in the home. However, as we’re moving into the holiday season, we thought it may be an excellent time to remind our clients of a few safety tips for the use and operation of a fireplace. Though you are not likely to need to use a fireplace in Las Vegas, for temperature reasons, it might come in handy and can certainly set a welcoming mood. For whatever reason you decide to use your fireplace, please remember the following tips to do so as safely as possible. 

You’ll need to remember the inside of the fireplace: 

-Before you use your fireplace you should give in a thorough cleaning, ensuring all debris is removed from the walls and floor of the fireplace
-You’ll also want to ensure the flue is clear from any obstructions which might cause smoke to billow back into your home
-You may choose to take care of these maintenance needs on your own, but perhaps you’ll consider hiring a professional chimney sweep

Once you’ve lit the fire: 

-Be sure to have a conversation with your family about fireplace safety
-Remember that the glass and metal objects around the fire are bound to be hot-proceed with caution
-If you’ve got a home with small children or animals it is best to also have a metal/mesh gate in front of the fireplace for extra safety
-During a party or other event this season, it may be tempting to use the hearth as extra seating-if the fire is on, try to avoid this
-Lastly, should you have a gas fireplace, consider installing a locking mechanism on the power source so that your children can not turn it on easily and/or unattended

By following these few and simple safety tips you can ensure that you’ll have a successful season and enjoy your fireplace to the maximum. However, we know that accidents do happen and disaster can strike. If you are in need of property restoration in Las Vegas, remember that Thistle DKI is here to assist you.
