What’s for dinner? If you are one of those people that like to cook their own food, you are probably concerned about the kitchen in your home and the shape it is in. A kitchen can be a big problem if not cared for properly. You could have water damage, smoke damage, appliances with electrical issues and many other things going on. So what things should you be on the lookout for in a kitchen?
Water damage can cause many expensive problems, and the kitchen is a common location where you find these. The pipes under your sink should not be leaking, so if you find water in there, you should figure out where the problem lies and have it fixed as soon as possible.
You exhaust fan over the stove could prove to be a fire hazard if it isn’t clean regularly. Also, the fan needs to sit directly over the stove and vent to the outside, otherwise you will have the smoke settling inside of your home.
Make sure your appliances don’t have frayed and damaged power-cords, since this could be a hazard. They also need proper ventilation, so give them some space to breathe.
Keeping all this in mind, you’re ready to get cooking!
