When a house is built around an open sewers system, there are many possible hazards that can lead to a fire.
This article outlines the steps you should take to minimize the risk of a fire that would destroy your sewing machine.
First, make sure the home has a fire sprinkler system installed.
If it doesn’t, you’ll need to take precautions to ensure that your home does have a sprinkler.
Next, make certain that your machine cabinets are in a dry, dry place.
A dry place makes it easier for the fire to spread and will protect the machine from the elements.
To keep your machine cabinet dry, follow these simple steps: Wash your machine after every use, especially if you use it for the first time.
Clean your machine by placing a towel over it and letting it dry.
If you are making an alteration, use a rag or towel to wipe down the machine before the alterations.
Wash your sewing machines with a mild detergent and then wipe down with a soft, clean cloth.
Use a damp cloth to cover the area you want to cover and to wipe any moisture that may be clinging to the machine.
When your machine is dry, put it back in your dryer.
Make sure it’s in a clean and dry place so that the fire won’t spread to your machine.
If your machine has an automatic fire sprinklers system, install them as soon as you can.
Make a list of all the items you want on your machine and where you want them to be placed.
Check to make sure that the machine is properly ventilated.
If a vent is not in place, the fire could spread through the system and spread the fire.
If the fire is still there, take a look at the ceiling and walls.
Check for holes in the walls and ceiling.
Clean and inspect any other areas that may have been damaged during the fire, such as the back of the machine and the inside of the cabinets.
If there are no holes, inspect the cabinet for holes.
Make the repairs to the cabinet, including putting in the fire extinguisher.
Do not allow your machine to remain dry for too long.
Do a thorough check for damage to your machines, including any electrical wires and connectors that may need to be replaced.
If all of the above are done correctly, your machine should be safe to use again.
