You might cut your finger while chopping vegetables or burn yourself on a hot pan. Besides that there is no actual danger to your livelihood or your home. Except for grease fires. Fires caused by grease are probably the most prominent way that fires start in homes. Grease fires happen when your cooking oil becomes too hot. Adding water or wet cold food to hot oil or grease can cause a flare up.

Here at SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress, we deal with these kinda issues all the time. Cage your worries and let us at SERVPRO take care of this for you.
