Fire Extinguishers

Every household faces the risk of fire from the myriad of different appliances, equipment and much more around a general house. Even the humble smart phone has been pointed to cause fire when overcharged or placed over beds. Laptops, electrical outlet shorts, stoves, gas burners, grills, microwaves, oil fires and so on is just the basic list of all the things that could lead to a fire hazard in an average household. The most essential and often neglected safety equipment after the smoke detector is the Fire extinguisher. When placed in the right spots and maintained properly, it can tame fires that have had a little breathing time. There are different types of these and the most commonly used is the CO2 powder or gas extinguisher. Usually for household, gas extinguishers are preferable.
