Life has a way of piling up on you…but don’t let your home become riddled with waste and unnecessary clutter! Clutter can get in the way of your safety, especially during a fire. It could even be the cause of a fire!

Clutter is very easy to avoid. Follow these steps to help keep your home fire safe and clutter free:

  • If you do have a lot of clutter in your home, be sure to clean piles of boxes, papers, magazines, etc. away from hallways and exits.
  • It’s very important to have an escape route, but not one that is surrounded by clutter! Make sure to move furniture and storage cabinets away from exit doors, hallways, foyers, and windows that lead to fire escapes. This will help you achieve a clean and unharmed escape!
