In our last article, we talked about how clutter can make you stressed out. And while that’s inconvenient (and in some cases, can cause you some severe health problems), there are other more serious issues that may come up as a result of clutter and such.
Did you know that clutter can actually lead to an increased fire hazard in your home? It’s true. There are a number of reasons that clutter actually makes the chance for fire in your home worse, and it also makes it harder for you and your family to escape, in the case that there is a fire. Why? Here are the main concerns you have to consider.
First, if you have a lot of clutter, you likely have a lot of things that are flammable/combustible. That means that, even if there’s only a little spark, it’s going to be more likely to grow into a fire that is going to be harder to contain. The severity of the fire has the potential to be much, much worse just because there is so much that can be burned. More fuel always equals more fire, and therefore makes the situation that much worse.
If you and your family are trying to escape from a fire, there are also a number of problems that can come into play. For example, if you’ve got too much junk and clutter around your home, some of it may just be in the way when you’re trying to exit your home, causing you or your family members to trip or be unable to get out a window, through a hallway, or exit out a door. The other issue that can occur is, if your home is on fire, stuff can fall on you and your family while you’re trying to escape. Falling items are especially dangerous, because if they fall on you or obstruct your way, you can suffer severe injury or even die as a result. Clutter also causes the same exact problems for firefighters who are trying to get in and out of your home during the incident.
