Check Your Chords
Taking a few minutes every couple of months to go around your home and check the chords on your appliances is a necessary fire prevention tactic. None of the chords should appear frayed, and if they are, you will need to have them replaced. You should also make sure the chords do not run underneath any type of carpeting and that they don't rest too close to a heating source.

Properly cleaning your dryer of lint and ridding your oven and range hood of grease build-up are important procedures when it comes to preventing appliance fires.
