Wildfires are a natural occurrence in many parts of the world, but they can often be devastating to homes and businesses. If you live in an area prone to wildfires, it is important to take steps to minimize the damage they can cause. Mammoth Restoration shares the following tips to minimize wildfire damage.
1) Create a Defensible Space
A defensible space is an area around your home or business that is clear of flammable materials. This will create a barrier between the structure and the fire. A defensible space should be at least 30 feet around your home or business, but 100 feet is even better. Remove any dead leaves, branches, or debris from the area to create a defensible space. If there are any areas that catch on fire, contact an expert in fire damage restoration right away.
2) Use Fire-Resistant Materials
With years of experience as an emergency restoration services, we understand that one of the best ways to protect your home from fires is by investing in fire-resistant materials. Use these if you are building a new home or business or making additions to an existing one. These include concrete, stone, brick, metal, and stucco. If you are using wood, treat it with a fire retardant. Have your roofing materials inspected regularly and replaced if necessary.
