Living in the 21st century definitely has its perks – gone are the days of hand washed laundry, in-ground coolers and fire cooked meals. Thanks to the miracles of technology, we’re finishing tasks in minutes that used to take hours. Who said life wasn’t easy?
As simple and efficient as these modern conveniences might make our lives, at no point should we ever forget that they too have the potential to fail. If you think about just how many mechanisms must interact at exactly the right time to complete a load of laundry, you can appreciate why at some point something might go wrong. When it comes to your appliances, it’s important to take into consideration that just because something is new it doesn’t mean that it is invincible. Just last week Bosch issued a major recall of certain models of their dishwasher’s due to a fire risk, following in the footsteps of UK brand Beko who announced a fridge and freezer recall the week before. In both situations, the models were no more than 10 years old and appeared to be working fine.

These are only a few examples of potential safety hazards that can be found around the home. A few other easy things you can do to prevent the risk of fire or injury include:
Product recalls are an all too common reality these days, and paying attention to your appliances can mean the difference between a replacement machine and a kitchen fire. Sparks, smoke, buzzing or strange smells can all be cause for concern and should never be ignored. If you’re uncertain about something, contact the manufacturer to confirm that the behavior is normal.
