Kitchen fire safety, starting from small matters


Published by admin October 16,2023

Making delicious food cannot be separated from the kitchen, but the kitchen uses concentrated fire and electricity, which is often a high-risk location for household fires. What are the safety hazards of the kitchen?

1. Store flammable and explosive materials in a centralized manner. Natural gas, liquefied gas tanks, lighters, cooking wine, cooking oil, flour, alcohol, and other items in the kitchen can easily cause combustion, leakage, or explosion if placed or used improperly.

2. Oil fumes are heavy. The kitchen frequently uses water and the environment is relatively humid. During the cooking process, oil fumes can easily accumulate. If not cleaned for a long time, the oil stains on walls, range hoods, oil fume pipes, exhaust fans, gas stoves, and other areas will become thicker and thicker. When using an open flame, a slight lack of attention may cause a fire.

3. There are significant hidden dangers in electrical circuits. With the increasing modernization of kitchens and the increase in kitchen appliances, it is easy to overload the use of appliances. In addition, some families, for the sake of temporary convenience, privately connect electrical circuits, resulting in the phenomenon of wires not running through pipes and switches without a back cover. In the humid and greasy environment of the kitchen, it is easy to cause leakage, short circuit, and fire.

4. There are significant safety hazards associated with stove appliances. In daily households, improper operation or unattended use of pressure cookers, steam cookers, rice cookers, freezers, ovens, etc. can easily lead to fire or explosion accidents.

The above four points are common safety hazards in the kitchen, and we must pay attention to them. For safety reasons, it is recommended to install home gas leak alarms and fire smoke alarms in the kitchen.
