Fire Safety Tips for Your Central Valley Rental Property

Fire Safety Tips for Your Central Valley Rental Property

By RPM Central Valley

Thanks to recent statistics by the U.S. Fire Administration we know that more deaths by fire occur each year, especially in residential properties. Thankfully, you can reduce the risk of fire at your Central Valley Rental Property by following these fie safety tips.

Tip #1 – Have Smoke Alarms Tested Every 90 Days

Since they are the #1 thing in your Central Valley Rental Property that will save the lives of your tenants, you should have the smoke alarms in your rental property tested every 90 days to ensure that each smoke alarm is working, and batteries in smoke alarms should be replaced if the smoke alarm is not working.

Tip #2 – Have Multiple Smoke Alarms Placed in The Home

One big mistake that many people make with smoke alarms is only having one smoke alarm placed in the home when there should be several fire alarms. For best results, you should have a smoke alarm installed in each room of your Central Valley Rental Property to ensure that your tenants hear the smoke alarm should it go off in the middle of the night.

Your tenants should also be instructed to not block bedroom doors if they close them at night because a large portion of fire related deaths every year happen in the bedroom because the door was blocked and fire fighters were unable to get into the bedroom.

Tip #3 – Add A Fire Extinguisher to Your Kitchen

Last of all, but most important, after studying fire statistics from the U.S. Fire Administration we know that about fifty percent of fire related deaths occur each year in the kitchen. The risk of a kitchen fire at your Central Valley Rental Property can be eliminated by adding a fire extinguisher to your kitchen and teaching your tenants how to use it.
