Don’t Burn the Kitchen Down…

Kitchen Fire

There is someone, somewhere or other, cooking dinner at this very moment. We do not know who or where, but I guarantee you someone is not paying attention to what they are doing and a flame has begun to flicker.

You can be an experienced Chef or someone that could not boil an egg if your life depended on it. Starting a fire in the kitchen can happen to all of us. No matter what side of the cake batter you are on. 

There are many reasons why…

DO NOT forget that you are deep frying French Fries when the phone rings and you get so caught up with the latest gossip that you sit down, put your feet up and wait until your fire alarm goes off before you remember them.

DO NOT try to impress a date or spouse with cooking skills that you do not possess. It is imperative not to try making a Banana Foster Flambé with liqueur that is one hundred twenty proof when you want to keep your kitchen in tip top condition. (SERVPRO of Greenville/Troy/Andalusia cannot even make your eyebrows “like it never even happened” if you try that stunt.)

DO NOT wait for a cleaning fairy to come wash the buildup of grease and oils in your oven, on the stove and/or the Grille.

DO NOT sit your toaster near the Kitchen curtains while you toast bread that you have impulsively buttered before hand.

The above is not meant to be comical.

It is meant to grab your attention for just a few moments…To make you think, reflect, and realize the dangers of not paying attention while you are working in the kitchen.

Life is demanding…Multi-tasking is how most of us live each day. So many things to do that we often forget the little details that can save us from a future disaster. Slow down.

If you need us, though, we are there. Visit our home page and click on the “Fire” link. It will guide you through what SERVPRO of Greenville/Troy/Andalusia can do for you.
