Comment: Our houses are full of potential fire hazards

7 May 2015 12:35

I have always considered myself to quite safety conscious but had to admit that perhaps I should rethink that. How many of us have toasters which sit neatly on our kitchen worktops under kitchen cupboards? How many don’t bother to pull them out when quickly chucking in a couple of slices or a teacake as we run the bath, put on the shower, catch up on our favourite soap, and forget all about it until the lovely smell reminds us? Did you realise that by repeatedly doing that you are slowly building up a layer of animal fat on the underside of your kitchen cupboards and a potential fire risk. I hadn’t thought about it, I do wipe under the cupboards, but perhaps not as frequently as I need to. So what was the first job I did when I got home tonight? One fire hazard dealt with. I am now going to book a fire safety visit and have my flat assessed a service which is free to everyone. An expert and a fresh pair of eyes may spot the things I am missing.
