Strategies from your Home Inspector: Wildfire Protection

Recently, California has witnessed one of the worst fire seasons ever as several wildfires have scorched hundreds of thousands of acres across the state. Many homeowners have lost everything, and the death toll is one of the highest on record. Seasonal wildfires are natural and expected, as California is dry and hot and prone to fires in some parts of the year. Many homes are built in high risk areas where although the landscape is beautiful and picturesque, wildfire is likely. Homeowners can, however, take steps to mitigate the risk of wildfire, and protect their families and homes. As a home inspector, I urge you to periodically inspect your home for fire resistance. The article below gives a bare minimum of components within the home to check for fire safety. As your home inspector, I am here to answer any questions you may have about the wellbeing of your home.
