Spread Love not Fire Damage

Kitchen fires can only take seconds to spread

February is the month of love and what better way to show that special someone you care than with a romantic candlelit dinner. Before you show off your chef skills though, keep in mind that cooking equipment is the #1 cause of house fires so make sure you are keeping an eye on that delicious dish you are preparing. It only takes seconds to start a fire that can engulf your whole kitchen and put a huge damper on your special night in.

Ways to stay safe in the kitchen

  • Make sure your smoke alarm is working
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking
  • Keep potholders, towels and paper towels away from the stove top
  • Turn off your burner and oven when not in use

Once you have your meal ready don’t forget to set the mood…

Candles are a go-to choice for romantic lighting, but are one of the top 5 things that cause house fires. Salt lamps, fairy lights, table lamps, oil diffusers, wax warmers and flameless luminaries can help you “set the mood” without worry so your night can go exactly as planned.

If the unfortunate does happen, SERVPRO of Gurnee can help clean up and rebuild after a fire. We have the highly trained staff and equipment to make it seem like it never happened. Call us today!
