All fires need a combination of oxygen, heat and fuel to start and spread, and these three things can come from any number of sources. Here are some of the most common causes
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to take a step back from work and other commitments and just indulge yourselves in each other’s presence. Whether this be a trip to your favourite restaurant or a candle lit meal at home, the aim is to have a day/evening of love, happiness and romance.
However, as fun as Valentine’s Day can be, it also has its risks. Candles are one of the main ingredients of a romantic meal. Using candles to set the scene and create ambience can be a great idea however, you must be careful! You should never leave candles unattended and must always put them out before going to bed or leaving the house. It seems like common sense but it is extremely easy to forget when distracted.
Another thing to consider is cooking. 25% of fatal fires are caused by careless cooking. This can be cooking drunk, leaving pans and trays unattended or simply being unprepared for an accident. It’s incredibly important that you are focused when cooking. Being intoxicated can lead to mishaps which can grow into larger problems – like house fires.
Fire and smoke seals protect you in the event of a fire. By offering up to 60 minutes of breathable air time, these seals allow you the chance to escape or be rescued if you’re trapped. Sealing the gaps around doors, seals prevent fire and more importantly, smoke from reaching you. Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of death in fires, with 41% of deaths occurring from smoke inhalation.
