If You Make Use of Gas, Stop doing These 5 Things; You May Be Risking Your Life

Gas as we as we know is as useful as it is dangerous, thus, the heaps of kitchen safety tips that have overflowed the internet. Regardless of these tips, gas users still neglect them.

While a few explosions occur because of dangers the client purposely does with his gas, others occur out of complete obliviousness; that is the reason, in this article, I’ll be explaining 5 things you do with your gas, that could be a risk to your life.

1. Filling your gas to the brim:

Filling your gas to the brim or fullest essentially implies filling gas into your cylinder till there is no space for inside the cylinder. While the vast majority do this act out of obliviousness, others acknowledge the danger of explosions and still fill their cylinders to the fullest just so the gas should last more.

It is awful and exceptionally hazardous to top off your cooking cylinder till it’s at its fullest – reason being that LPG (cooking gas) normally expands and may tend to burst out if there is no space to accommodate it’s expansions. Thus chambers should be filled to around 80 to 85 percent leaving the remainder of the space to deal with the expansion.

2. Shaking your gas container:

Many people shake their gas cylinders in order to decide the left over amount of gas in it. Nonetheless, what the vast majority don’t know is that extreme shaking of gas container is life risky – reason being that when the container holding the gas can no longer withstand the pressure caused by the inordinate shaking, the outcome may prompt a blast.

Instead of shaking, in the event that you truly need to find out what’s left of your gas, I’d recommend you wet a side of the cylinder. Sooner or later, the top part will be dry and the lower part with gas in it will stay wet. The wet part discloses to you the measure of gas left. Or even better, you can simply get an gas measuring device.

3. Keeping your gas cylinder inside your home;

Many people still keep their gas chambers indoor regardless of the warnings. Its risky to store your gas container inside your home – reason being that LPG is dangerous if getting leaked inside a room. That is, Incase of any undetected release, the smallest fire may bring about a blast.

It’s ideal to keep your gas bottles outside your condo and away from direct daylight, ignition material, and fuel.

3. Wrecked rubber tubes:

These little ignored rubbers inside the tip of a gas bottle are as fatal as they are useful – reason being that, these rubbers play the role of an additional blockages from gas spills. That is, without these rubbers your cylinder may spill (in the event that you have a terrible valve) and if the spillage is undetected, a blast may happen because of any fire start.

It’s ideal to check your cylinders when refilling your gas to check whether the rubber is appropriately unblemished and OK. In the event that you discover any wreckage in the rubber, it’s advisable to replace it right away.

4. Keep gas bottle upstanding at all times:

Keep your gas bottles standing consistently. Reason being that If cylinders are put in some other position other than upstanding, fluid LPG may spout out of the open valve making a perilous circumstance.

It is prudent to keep your cylinders upstanding.

5. Mishandling the flames;

The fire in gas ovens can be controlled effectively by turning the handle between low, medium, or high. Ensure the flares never show from under the pot.

It is essential that the burners are turned off just after cooking. Leaving the fire unattended to while not cooking may prompt mishaps or fire risks. On the off chance that your burner doesn’t light up when turned on, you should turn it off tightly, wait a couple of minutes before giving it another try.


Those are my 5 hints that may help you in the kitchen if you are using a gas cylinder.
