How Can I Prevent An Oven Fire In My Hermitage/Donelson Home?

5/16/2022 (Permalink)

Your kitchen is a prime spot for a house fire to start. We’re all aware of the dangers that grease fires on the stovetop can cause, but many issues can also create a fire in your oven. While your range helps contain the flames, they can still spread to other parts of your house if a fire starts. Being aware of the common causes of oven fires can help you use safe practices to avoid disaster.

What Are Some Best Practices For Oven Fire Safety In My Hermitage/Donelson Kitchen?

Keep reading for some great tips on how to avoid a fire in your oven:

  • The easiest step in avoiding a fire is ensuring your oven is always working correctly; be sure to get it serviced at least once a year. 
  • Keep grease from splattering all over the inside of your oven by using a splatter guard or cover. It will save time when cleaning up, as well as prevent fires. Fat and grease splattering can cause a flame that leads to a small fire; it can take only a few minutes for a small grease fire to flare.
  • Be sure to install fire alarms in your kitchen and ensure installation is done right. They should be located 6 to 20 feet away from any kitchen appliances to prevent false alarms. The shorter distance applies to photoelectric smoke detectors and the 20-foot space to ionization smoke detectors.
