Keeping homes safe during renovations

You can see the hard work of remodeling your Door County getaway or Kewaunee County home go up in smoke if you do not take the proper precautions. The National Association of Home Builders expects renovation spending to grow by three percent over the next two years. Exposed wires, dangerous machines, and other factors can easily see that work disappear because of a fire. Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says when doing some remodeling in your home, there are some basic things you should do to protect yourself from potential fires.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, blazes in structures undergoing renovation cause an average of four deaths and 16 injuries every year, costing property owners $108 million annually.
