A fire can be devastating to home owners and businesses. It can spread rapidly and burn valuable possessions. After a fire is put out, soot will be left behind and a strong smoke odor can linger in a home or building. Soot and smoke can penetrate deep into carpets, walls, furniture and electronics and damage them. Windows and roofs may get destroyed by a fire, leading to a security and privacy issue for homeowners and businesses.
Most fires in a home or business are caused by accidents according to the National Fire Protection Association. Kitchen fires are a leading cause of fire damage. Unattended stoves and ovens can burn food and start a fire. Microwaves, toasters and other electrical cooking appliances can overheat and spark a fire. Cigarette ashes, candles and kids playing with matches are another common cause of fires.
