Fire Departments also state that many panicked residents will throw water on a grease fire, causing the fire to spread quicker.
A product that is recommended by fire departments across the country is the Stovetop Firestop automatic fire suppression system. This is a simple to install, maintenance free set of canisters that will release a fire suppressant if it is exposed to a flame. It is not affected by heat or smoke.
The company has two styles. If you have a hood vent over your stove, you simply mount the two canisters inside the vent with the attached powerful magnets. If you have a microwave over your stove, the canisters are enclosed in a wall mounted housing above your stove.
The fire suppressant is non toxic and requires no maintenance. If you have sprinklers, the Stovetop Firestop can suppress a stovetop fire before it triggers the sprinkler system. It can also put out a fire before a fire alarm can be activated.
This is an excellent fire prevention system that should be installed in every home.
