According to Warren County area fire damage Restorer SERVPRO, you can lower your fire risks by developing safer cooking habits and properly maintaining appliances 

Residential fires are common occurrences in the Warren County area.  These fires often originate from cooking mishaps, poorly maintained appliances and those that malfunction. Once ignited, blazes can quickly spread throughout the home.

What Can I Do to Reduce My Risks of a House Fire and Mitigate Damages if One Occurs?

Fortunately, you can do several things to substantially lower your residential fire risks and limit your damages if one ever happens.  SERVPRO offers the following fire risk mitigation suggestions to homeowners:

    •    Make sure cooking oil never overheats and only use deep fryers controlled by a thermostat
    •    If an oil or grease fire starts, turn off the heat if possible and do not attempt to extinguish it with water
    •    Keep clothing and other flammable materials away from the stove and burners
    •    Ensure that cooking appliances are turned off once you are finished cooking
    •    Avoid leaving cooking food or children unattended in the kitchen
    •    Properly maintain and routinely clean all appliances
    •    Keep a Class A-B-C fire extinguisher in your kitchen

Although SERVPRO believes these measures effectively reduce your fire-related risks, they can never fully eliminate them.
