Keeping your home safe from fire

3/5/2021 (Permalink)

Cooking is the number one cause of home fires. Here are some steps you can take to prevent a cooking fire. Each year from 2014-2016, fire departments in the United States responded to an estimated average of 188,800 cooking fires in residential buildings.

  • Remember to stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling or boiling food.
  • If you do have to step away from the kitchen, turn off the burner.
  • Keep things that can burn away from your cooking area.
  • Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove so they won’t get bumped.

If disaster does strike in your home, contact the SERVPRO of Gainesville today (770) 536-1010.
