When it comes to fire safety in the kitchen, you should pay attention to what you are doing. Kitchens burn down because people sometimes forget about shutting off the stove, the microwave, or oven. Once the oil gets hotter, it starts to smoke, then bursts into a fiery blaze which can be impossible to extinguish alone. For small fires, you can certainly do something about it by getting fire extinguishers. They are truly valuable when combustion unexpectedly occurs.Also, watch carefully your electrical wires. Cord snags can pose problems and may get someone electrocuted. Never plug or unplug kitchen equipment and appliances especially if your hands are damp. You do not want to become a kitchen casualty just because you have forgotten that cardinal rule.
If you use a quality polyurethane finish, it can prove to be just as water-resistant as other floor types. These have a beautiful sheen but will require a refinish annually. Polyurethane finishes last a very long time and do not need to be stripped, waxed, or buffed. With regular cleaning and dusting, you should be fine. Just be sure to look out for leaks - and fix the problem immediately if you find any. Something like a burst pipe can cause terrible damage if not discovered, so be on the look out. Equally important is the type of wood that you choose - the kitchen is a high-traffic area and therefore certain species of wood floors work better in the kitchen than others. Cherry, fir, and pine wood are less durable types - ash, maple, or oak stand up better and are more durable, and will serve you well over the course of a lifetime. If you are shopping flooring, let your installer know the room you plan to install it in - they may have some good suggestions about which choice to make.
