Cooking Safety Tips for Kearney Mesa?
Do you know that most cooking fires in the home involve the kitchen stove? According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), unattended cooking is the leading cause of home fires in the United States. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East responds to fire damage emergencies each year in Kearney Mesa, and we offer these tips from the NFPA for cooking safely:
- Be on alert! Don't use the stove or stovetop if you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol.
- Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, boiling, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove.
- If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking
- Keep anything that can catch fire (oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, or curtains) away from your stovetop
