How to Protect Your Home With Fire Caulking

Fire caulking is an easy and effective way to get rid of any safety hazards in your home. This material expands when exposed to high heat, sealing gaps and preventing the spread of fire and smoke to the whole property.

How To Protect Your Home Using Fire Caulking 

Seal Electrical Outlets and Switches

Electrical outlets and switches are potential entry points where fire can spread quickly. For this reason, applying fire caulking around these fixtures should be one of your first steps.

Caulk Gaps In Your Attic Or Basement

Many attics and basements have hidden gaps and openings, especially where wiring or pipes pass through. Sealing these areas with fire caulking can clock areas that could allow the fire to spread to other floors or rooms. 

Protect Areas Around Heating Systems

Heating systems, furnaces, and chimneys are naturally prone to fires. You can use fire caulking to seal them, ensure that any small gaps are filled, and contain the flames. 

Secure Joints and Seams

Remember to caulk joints and seams where walls meet floors and ceilings, and around door frames and windows. Applying it in these areas can help contain the fire to a specific area and reduce potential damage.

Seal Areas Prone to High Heat

Kitchen and utility rooms often experience higher heat and tend to experience more fires. Reinforce these areas with fire caulking to keep these areas safe.
