Safety tips to avoid fire damage from cooking equipment

A leading cause of fire damage and fire injuries in the home come from cooking equipment. SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants to be there for you if this ever happens in your home.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola shares these tips to help prevent fire damage. They make more sense than not cooking at home.

  • Many kitchen items can catch fire, including: dish towels, oven mitts, recipes, wooden tools, and loose clothing
  • Never operate the stove or oven when you are tired or have been drinking alcohol
  • If you are frying, broiling, grilling, or boiling food, stay in the kitchen. If you leave, even for a short time, turn off the heat
  • Keep flammable items at least three feet from the stove top
  • Do not allow children within two to four feet of the stove or oven
  • If you must leave the house while cooking of any kind, turn off the heat sources

Remember that fire is fast. If you cannot contain a fire immediately, leave and bring everyone with you. Call 9-1-1 from outside the home.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola reminds you that fire prevention is the best strategy against fire damage.
