Fires caused by household appliances are said to cause at least $5 billion in property losses on a yearly basis. In addition, house fires happen frighteningly commonly, that one happens every 63 seconds.
Here are some of the most common appliances that cause house fires:
Given the cold and freezing temperatures in a fridge, most people would never think of fridges causing fires. However, refrigerators contain components such as the compressor which can overheat and start producing sparks, and this in turn can lead to a raging fire in no time. Because fridges cycle on and off regularly, it is more likely that the compressor, worn out after years of use, can catch fire.
Another counterintuitive appliance with regard to fire starting has to be the household dishwasher, which actually has heating elements that are responsible for making sure that grease and grime comes off utensils. Because these heating elements can overheat, it is vital that you don’t leave the dishwasher running overnight, and never leave home with the dishwasher running, given the propensity for the heating elements to get so hot as to cause a spark in internal wiring, leading to a fire.
Morning toast is a great thing, and it’s something some people look forward to after a restful night. However, please be aware that toasters can be fire hazards when they are not cleaned regularly as well as if the components are faulty such as in the case of a nonfunctional timer which doesn’t pop the bread or bagel out, leading to it getting charred, and finally, burning up.
