With most of us storing some kind of flammable liquid in our garages, we wanted to share our thoughts on minimising the chances of a fire breaking out.
Here are our top tips for keeping your garage a safe place to be:
- If you do have to store petrol in your garage, keep it tightly sealed and out of reach of children.
- You shouldn’t store petrol in a garage that contains an appliance with a pilot light.
- Be careful not to overload plug sockets or extension cords and make sure all your wiring and cords are free from damage.
- If you have any chemicals stored in your garage, keep them in a secure cabinet out of reach. Something like our cabinets are a good choice.
- Have a fire extinguisher to hand in the garage and train all adults on how to use it.
- If you have any appliances in your garage, keep them clean and clear of build up residue to stop the chances of it catching fire.
