Top causes of home fires & how to prevent them.

Given the current condition with the virus, we find ourselves spending more and more time at home. Although that gives us the opportunity to spend more time with our loved ones, there’s also a silent threat - the threat of fire. 

Over 3,121 homes are lost to fire every year. Some of it was just structural damage, and some worst. Resulting in the loss of lives.
 

A fire is a threat that should be taken seriously. With that said, here’s the top causes of home fires & how to prevent them.  

1. Cooking related fire

This comes as no surprise to us all. Cooking gas, high heats. The best place for a fire to start.

Prevention Tip
Never leave cooking unattended and always keep an eye on your microwave whenever you’re using it.

The easiest way to put out a fire in your kitchen is using a home-friendly (and also car-friendly btw) extinguisher or having a fire blanket nearby.

2. Electrical fires

We all have that one plug point that we use up to the max! Electrical faults in home wiring is one of the major causes of electrical fires in homes.

Prevention Tip
Don’t overload plug points and ensure that you have a smoke detector installed to act as an early warning system against a fire.  

3. Smoking indoors & candles

Smoking is bad for health as it is but it’s even worse when you don’t clear out your ashtray properly!

Candles on the other hand are a very nice way to give your house that vanilla or pine scent that you like. But, leave it near your curtains. And, you have the beginnings of a fire in your home. 

Prevention Tip
Never, ever leave lit candles unattended and clear out your ashtray properly to ensure that there's no lit cigarettes. 

It takes 30 seconds for a small fire to become a big fire, that’s why it’s always good to have an extinguisher that’s 30 seconds away from you. This extinguisher is usually the 3kg ABC Dry Powder because it’s higher content quantity is suitable for bigger areas of your home.  

If the 3kg is too big for you, you can also get 2 units of our 1kg extinguishers for only RM100 here. This is a limited-time promo currently on our Online Store.
