How to prevent kitchen fires this holiday season

Posted In:
Uncategorized

Kitchen-related fires are reported to be the number one cause of fires in the U.S.. This risk is heightened during the holidays since you’re likely to use equipment and cook with ingredients you don’t use in other seasons. While cooking habits contribute to kitchen fires, some are caused by appliances such as toasters, microwaves, refrigerators, and toaster ovens.

This holiday, keep your loved ones safe from fires even amidst the festivities. Use these tips to keep your kitchen and home from going up in flames.

Be keen on gas leaks

Rotten eggs type of smell should immediately tip you off of a possible gas leak. It’s important to note that this smell may be coming from your stove or outside. If your stove is the problem, ensure you don’t switch on any lights or use cell phones as it would spark the gas especially if it’s been leaking for a while. Evacuation is highly advised followed by opening all doors and windows. If possible, locate the shut-off switch and turn it off before calling for help.

Cut clutter

When it comes to kitchen cabinets, pantries, and refrigerators, it’s not advisable to pack them too full as this will always lead to rummages and accidents. Broken glass lying on the floor can cause injuries in the kitchen if stepped on.

Avoid distractions while cooking

We understand this season friends and family would want to gather around you in the kitchen as you prepare meals but it’s crucial to be extra careful. You also need to avoid leaving equipment unattended. If you wish to withdraw from the kitchen, turn off your stove otherwise stay in the kitchen as you fry, boil, or even grill your food. Distractions can wreak havoc in your home if allowed.

Dress appropriately

Close fitting clothes with tightly rolled sleeves are encouraged. Loose clothing can easily dangle and catch fire. Similarly, ensure you get everything you need from your cabinets before you begin cooking, especially if they are located above the stove. You will prevent any accident or fire that could have erupted as you try reaching over a lit stove or if items fell from the cupboard onto pans.

While not all accidents can be prevented, don't let it put you off enjoying the most precious room in your home.
