Faulty Clothes Iron Causes Fire Damage in Lakewood Home?

9/12/2023 (Permalink)

We have been restoring fire damage for 40 years in Jefferson County!

I went to answer the door and forgot that I had turned on the iron and left it sitting on the ironing board. I didn’t recall turning on the iron until the smoke detector sounded. Oh no! I turned off the iron and unplugged it and used the fire extinguisher to put out the fire. My insurance adjuster told me to call the local Lakewood and Ken Caryl team and I’m glad I did. They arrived quickly and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process. Now you would never know that I had an iron fire in my home!

By being aware of the potential hazards and taking appropriate safety measures, the risk of fires caused by household irons can be significantly reduced. Here are some safety guidelines for minimizing the chances of household iron fires from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission

  • Always unplug the iron when not in use.
  • Place the iron on a heat-resistant surface, such as an ironing board designed for the purpose.
  • Avoid ironing near flammable materials and always be cautious with the iron's cord to prevent tripping hazards or accidental contact with the hot surface.
  • Check the iron's cord and plug regularly for any signs of damage, and do not use it if there are issues.
  • Clean the iron regularly following the manufacturer's instructions to remove any residue or debris.
