Insurance Question from Lacey, WA

Asked on 01/14/2012

will having a fire retardant for dryers to prevent a fire,increase safety in a home? NULL

Answer given on January 23, 2012

I think this question is self answering. Anything that helps prevent fires in the home would be an asset to have. The insurance companies always encourage their customers to do anything they can to help prevent fires. This includes having smoke detectors or monitored alarm systems. Discounts are available for monitored alarm systems.By taking the step to avoid a fire, you are helping yourself, by not exposing your property to a fire. Insurance merely repairs or attempts to replace property, but many items are not replaceable, such as photos.Make sure that what you purchase actually does what it says it will do. You should investigate the product and any reviews about it. Simply because it says it will prevent or reduce the chance of fire, you should make sure you use it properly. Also, don’t think that this is all you need to do. Make sure you keep the lint filter clean as well as the exhaust pipe.
