ServiceMaster can help pack your belongings and restore the damage caused by fire, smoke and water to get your home back to normal.
Cooking is the leading cause of house fires, and many start around ranges and cooktops. Cooking fires can happen suddenly and spread quickly. Here are a few steps you can take to keep your family safe in the kitchen.
- Don't leave cooking food unattended - a small stovetop or oven fire can spread to your cabinets and walls quickly. If you're roasting, baking or simmering your food, set timers to remind you to check on your food regularly.
- Buy a fire extinguisher to keep in your kitchen for small, contained fires. Be sure to store it away from the range and cooktop for easy access in the event of a fire.
- Smoke detectors alert you to fires and increase your chances of surviving a home fire. Have enough smoke detectors in your house (a good rule of thumb is one in every bedroom). Test them monthly and change the batteries at least once per year.
After a fire, one of the first steps to recovery is making sure that your belongings are handled and cared for in the right way.
