Dirty Ovens & Fire Risks

It’s great to have a sparkling clean oven, but having a sparkling clean oven is more than just meets the eye. It has more benefits than just that… Dirty ovens can be real fire risks.

I thought it was necessary to post this blog post since seeing warnings, and a few posters around Sheffield & Rotherham, as well as it highlighted on South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue website, and on the South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue facebook page highlighting how dirty ovens and grill pans cause lots of kitchen fires every year.

According to a South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue survey, it found that that 40% of people admit to not cleaning out their oven or grill pan in the last six months.

Watch Manager Gary Bruce of South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “You’d be amazed how many homes we go to where minimum standards of hygiene and cleanliness aren’t maintained, putting residents at a real risk of having a fire that could severely damage their property“.

Advice being given to residents by South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue is to: Clean out ovens and grills regularly to avoid a build up of fat and grease.
