Leading Cause of Household Fires

Leading Cause of Household Fires

According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking is the leading factor in household fires in the United States. From overheated stoves to unattended flames, the kitchen presents a variety of hazards for even the most astute home chef. While living room and bedroom fires account for a small percentage of annual household fires, staying safe in the kitchen will prevent significantly more fires from damaging your property and endangering your safety.

Avoidable Accidents

Everyone experiences an accident in the kitchen from time to time. You might forget to turn off the burner or allow a sudden blast from the oven to set off your smoke alarm. Tiny accidents can lead to big trouble down the road. Here are some ways to prevent kitchen fires:

Set timers and pay attention to them.

Cover up unused outlets with plastic covers to prevent sparks.

Wear protective clothing when you cook with hot oil.

Keep small children away from pot handles and other hot objects.

If your kitchen begins to fill with smoke, try opening a window or another door to increase ventilation. You may even consider installing a fan to help circulate the air. You might be tempted to disable a ringing smoke detector out of annoyance. Avoid disabling your smoke detector even for a minute because you might forget to turn it back on when you really need it.

Staying Alert

Kitchens might present the most dangerous opportunity for fire hazards, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the rest of your home. Turn off electric items that aren’t in use, and keep flammable fabrics away from direct heat sources. Not only will monitoring your electrical items keep you from causing a fire, but doing so will also help you save energy in the long run. The key to effectively preventing household fires is establishing a system of vigilance between you and your whole family.

In the even that a fire happens the most important thing is to get the fire put out. This seems silly to even say; however, it is the first step to recovery. A fire usually contaminates anything within its reach. We have seen fires that happen in the kitchen that leave soot on the walls and smoke on the clothes three rooms away. Smoke travels fast and has little regard for where it goes and what it lands on.

Some items we may be able to save and launder while others may be a total loss. This will be up to the homeowners and those working with to complete the work.
