Your property in Southern California could be at risk of catching fire during the summer months. That's because wildfires are more common here and can spread quickly, especially when there is a lot of dry vegetation around your home or business. Because of this, you should invest in a fire abatement service to reduce the risk that your property will catch on fire. What does fire abatement entail? Well, it involves removing and clearing brush and weeds from your lawn, as well as trimming overgrown trees and vegetation so they don't become fuel for fires. You should hire a local landscaping company to perform this type of service because professionals will have the experience needed to perform this service well and will know what needs to be done to best protect your property from fires. What's more, there's a good chance that your local government may offer a fire abatement rebate, so you could get reimbursed for some of the cost of this service.
What is fire abatement and how does it work?
Fire abatement is the process of reducing the risk of wildfires by clearing away flammable materials such as brush and weeds, which can serve as fuel for the flames. Removing excess vegetation reduces the amount of fuel that a fire can feed off of, which makes it less likely that a fire will be able to make its way to your home or business. This type of service also typically includes cutting back overgrown tree limbs and vegetation to make it harder for fires to reach them. Branches that hang low are much more likely to catch fire and tall vegetation that gets set on fire can spread to higher areas. By trimming your trees and cutting tall vegetation, you make it less likely that they will catch on fire, causing the fire to spread.
Why should you hire a professional landscaping company to perform fire abatement on your property?
If you want to prevent wildfires from breaking out on your property, then you should hire a professional landscaping company to perform a fire abatement service. When looking for a landscaping company to hire, make sure that they have extensive experience performing fire abatement so you can rest assured that they will know what they're doing. You should also make sure that the company you hire will also guarantee that your property will pass a fire inspection from local fire officials. If they guarantee this, then you can rest easy knowing that your property will be as prepared as possible for a wildfire.
Some insurance companies will cancel policies on homes that haven't passed a fire inspection.
Many local governments offer rebates for fire abatement services.
In an effort to help protect properties from wildfires, many local governments in Southern California offer rebate programs for fire abatement services. This means that after you have your property serviced, you may get some money back! Rebate programs typically vary depending on the location, but most provide a certain percentage off the cost of the service. Some companies who perform fire abatement services will also help their customers get a rebate, so it's a good idea to look for a company that offers this service before hiring them.
