Fire Safety Tips for Properties in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala & Lake City, FL

Fire-related incidents can easily get out of hand, but you can more easily control the situation if you and your household are prepared. With the right plan and equipment, you can quickly put out small flames before they can escalate into raging fires. To ensure that you and your family can manage fire disasters safely, take the following fire safety precautions:

Make a Working Fire Escape Plan

Creating a working fire escape plan ensures that your family is prepared for an emergency. Fires can start anywhere, so make sure that everyone knows what to do once a fire breaks out. The best fire escape plans are the ones that can get everyone out of the house in the safest and fastest way possible. Your plan should assign respective exits and meeting places that everyone can easily get to. We recommend practicing home fire drills at least twice a year, so escaping a fire becomes instinctual.

To make your fire escape plan more effective, consider doing the following tips:

  • Assign people to watch over family members who have mobility problems or limitations.
  • Choose an open space to meet up that is close by for everyone to reach but will still be far from the fire.
  • If you have house guests, share your fire escape routes and plans with them.
  • Keep emergency numbers nearby or saved on your mobile devices (e.g. fire department, police, etc.)
  • If your windows have security bars, make sure that they have emergency release devices.
  • Ensure that you have working smoke detectors, fire alarms, and fire extinguishers.
Smoke Detector and Fire Alarm

Smoke detectors, fire alarms, and fire extinguishers are your first lines of defense whenever a fire breaks out. Smoke detectors and fire alarms alert you when there is a fire, while a fire extinguisher allows you to put out the flames at a safe distance. For these systems to work in your favor, you have to install them strategically in your home. Fire alarms and smoke detectors should be installed throughout your home, especially in fire-prone spaces like your kitchen and laundry room. Fire extinguishers must be placed in nearby, easy-to-reach areas.

Inspect Your Systems Regularly

Once your property is equipped with the necessary fire prevention equipment, you should make it a habit to have them inspected regularly. Malfunctioning fire alarms or fire extinguishers are quite common, so you do not want to encounter these problems once a fire starts. You need to contact your local fire safety inspectors if you want your equipment maintained properly. These authorities can recommend if your system needs repair or replacement, and warn you if your fire extinguishers have expired.

Jason, with Dryer's Carpet Care, did an amazing job today cleaning my carpets. Having a little, young dog means accidents happen, and I was thrilled that the spots all came up. Thank you Jason!


Dryer's Carpet did our office last week, including cleaning the tile grout in our bathrooms and I can't begin to describe the amazing job they did! They were careful with our furniture and our office and delivered an outstanding job!


The technician was very positive, careful of other furnishings and receptive to requests. We’ve used them for furniture, carpets and rugs.


Exceptional work and were able to come to our house on short notice (next day). Would highly recommend.


What a professional group!! Highly recommend!! Everything is so nice, smells great!!


Best carpet cleaning company hands down! Very professional and affordable! Our carpets looks look AMAZING!!


So far Derek and Garrison and the whole Dreyers crew have been very professional and hard working in the early stages of cleaning up our home and business after hurricane Idalia.


I've been dealing with Miles and Garrison on a leak issue and they've been super helpful and professional. Miles assessed the problem right away and Garrison has made sure to tell us what's happening through every step. They took the stress out of a stressful situation!


Showed up on time. Did a great job. Would definitely hire them again


Jason did a great job of cleaning the wall-to-wall carpet in our house. He was very nice and efficient and our carpet looks terrific.


I have been using Dreyrs over the years for my house and business. Always professional and pleasant to work with. Jason and his partner were awesome! My carpets looks amazing! Thank you!


Allen did a really great job of cleaning our carpets. We showed him some areas where our dog left stains, and he spent extra time to clean thoroughly.


Excellent service from local family owned business, which I love. Very friendly when I made my appointment. I got a return call right away after an instant text message from the company. I liked that touch. Alan was prompt, friendly and super professional. My sofa and living room look great. Emily was so sweet on the phone explaining the company and pricing. We’re new to the area so I am happy t...


Recently had Alan, from Dryer's clean my sectional & was beyond thrilled with his prompt arrival, friendliness, and thorough professional cleaning. Wow! Had debated whether or not to ditch the old beast and buy a new one, but Alan's ability to painstakingly work to get the sofa so clean & fresh= I'll save $ and keep my sofa- Thank you Alan for making this old woman smile when looking at her clean ...


Brought Dreyer's in to clean the carpet of a recently purchased multi-floor (with carpeted stairs) condo. Dreyer's was there on-time and performed an excellent job. Allen was pleasant and professional. We had been concerned that some areas of the carpet would require replacement, but everything now looks and smells great. The price was very reasonable and there were no "surprise" charges during or...


Incredible, easy, and fast service from start to finish. Allen and Jason did did an amazing job. I would highly recommend using this company.


This was the third time that Dreyer’s cleaned our very special old wool rug. We also have the special coating to keep the stains down. The colors and pile are so pretty after it’s clean. Thank you team!


Allen was very professional. He got set up quickly but took his time cleaning our carpet. He did a great job and represented his company admirably.


timely, courteous, thorough service Allen delivered exceptional service.


Very responsive and professional service and quality work.


I have been using dryers for a couple of years and they are the best. My carpet looks great and they took the time to make sure it would. I highly recommend them


Dreyer’s did our move out carpet clean for the rental we are in and the carpets look significantly better than when we moved in here 3 years ago! Allen did a great job. He was on time, professional, efficient, and thorough. Very happy with our experience!


Wonderful, caring folks came into our home and did a great job. A real pleasure doing business with this company, from scheduling an appointment through the entire process.. Highly recommend the company to anyone needing a carpet cleaning.

Dreyers did an excellent job. Will be using them again in 6 months. The guys really took care. Our carpet is OLD and had never been professionally cleaned, before it looks really good, we had animals and raised 4 children, carpet was beyond disgusting. House smells great and carpet looks superb. Amazing what a professional cleaning company can do! I definitely will use them again. The carpet techs...
