Appliance Repair Service Pros Urge Texans to Cook Holiday Meals Safely

Appliance Repair San Antonio, Texas

The Thanksgiving holiday is a delightful occasion for most Texans. There’s a lot to look forward to, including the family meal and the Sun Bowl Parade. What many people often forget about amidst all of the joyful hullabaloo are cooking fires. They tend to significantly increase in the Lone Star State at this time of the year as well as nationwide.

According to U.S. Fire Administration and FEMA research, more than $15 million in damages occur each year as a result of such holiday mishaps. In addition, there are often holiday cooking related injuries and deaths that occur too. With that said, our appliance repair professionals wanted to urge fellow Texans to be mindful of the dangers.

Based on years of government reports, there are several factors that attribute to the rise in cooking fires over the holidays. Among them are electrical malfunctions and the misuse of cooking equipment. The good news is our appliance repair services and kitchen equipment planned maintenance agreements can help to reduce the chances of a malfunction from occurring. You’ll also receive written service records, discounts and special guarantees (i.e. parts and labor).

Of course there are other actions that should be taken as well. They include investing in safety equipment and coming up with a fire evacuation plan. As far as safety equipment goes, our appliance repair pros recommend the purchase of fire extinguishers, CO and smoke detectors.

Those that do not have the funds needed to purchase those items may want to check with the El Paso Fire Department. At select times of the year, they offer residents free smoke detectors. They can also provide advice on establishing a fire escape plan.
