When you think of the coffee pot sitting on the counter you always want to make sure it is off. If you used the toaster oven this morning then you could have forgotten to turn it off. I always check everything that is in the house before I leave. You need to make sure when you leave the house nothing is on. Most house fires are caused because of some type of kitchen appliance. Never leave the house if you leave the oven on. Want to cook a good meal for supper then you need to use a crock pot or a roaster oven. This will keep you safer and your home in tacked when you get home. Some of the appliance that you have in your home can be very dangerous because of the heat that comes from them. No one everything remembers everything unless you have a million sticky notes laying around and look at them constantly.
Kids will leave things hooked up so when they get home they can play on it. Before I leave my house I make sure me and the kids have everything unplugged that does not need to be plugged up. They say when you are not charging a phone or using an appliance to unplug it because it can over heat and cause a fire. Just look at all the chargers and phones that catch fire.
Think if you left your coffee pot on if your animal got on the counter and knocked it over. How would you know? Thinking about things like this makes my body crawl because of how much you lose when something catches on fire. So when you leave the house make sure everything that is not being used is unplugged and everything is off.
I love the fact that they have come up with the appliances that will shut off after so long or that shuts off if it is knocked over. If you are anything like me you forget easily and always have to go back and check. I would rather check six times before I have a house fire that makes me in debt and no where to go with nothing to my name. Teach your kids things that will remind them to make sure their appliance unplugged because it is not just the kitchen items that tend to catch fire. One thing that is the main house fire reasons is the kitchen area because everything is plugged up or going so you can cook or other things, causing electrical problems, needing an electrician Singapore.
Having an appliance on the counter beside papers is not good either. Misusing these items will have you causing problems for not only you but who ever else lives in your home. I am worlds worst at making coffee and leaving it on so I can go back to it and it still be warm.
Bad habits will have you regretting you choice in doing this. My husband will tell me ten times before leaving the house to check everything. Thank goodness that he does.
