Best Practices for Thanksgiving Cooking in your Kalamazoo, MI home

Thanksgiving has the highest amount of kitchen fires followed by Christmas and Christmas Eve.  Below are some best practices to minimize the potential of a fire getting out of hand at your parties.

1.) Don't drink and fry

Are you familiar with the acronym B.L.E.V.E.? It stands for Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion.  Putting in a frozen or very wet bird can be detrimental to your well-being.  It may explode!  So, make sure to thoroughly thaw out your bird and dry it off before frying it up!

2.) Too many cooks in the kitchen

Sometimes Uncle Randy wants to help out and sometimes Auntie Sue wants to help out, too!  Thanksgiving is all about coming together with family and friends, but sometimes, there are just too many cooks in that kitchen. SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo suggests that you keep your kitchen staffed efficiently during the holidays.  Watch out for the little ones, too, and keep them away from the stove!

If an unfortunate event occurs, please know your SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even on Holidays. Contact us and we will make it "Like it never even happened." (269)342-2366.
