Kitchen safety is of prime importance, especially during the holidays when a lot of cooking is involved. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that the peak day for home cooking fires is Thanksgiving, which is followed by Christmas Day, the day before Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas Eve. In addition, cooking was the leading cause of reported residential fires from 2014 to 2018.
A fire breaking out inside the home leads to losses in personal items, structural damages, and thousands of dollars in repairs and restoration. To save money and keep holiday cooking and celebrations free from fire threats, ServiceMaster by Wright has compiled these cooking safety tips and steps to properly dispose of cooking oil.
