Do You Use Batteries for Your Devices?

Batteries may seem like something that shouldn’t be on this list, but they are pretty dangerous. Batteries contain corrosive chemicals that can cause burns to your skin and eyes. Furthermore, it causes fatalities if ingested. If you use batteries at home, be sure to keep children away from your devices or tape the backs shut so your children can’t access the battery compartment. Suppose you come in contact with battery acid. In that case, be sure to thoroughly wash your hands. If you have ingested battery acid, immediately go to the Emergency Room for life-saving help. Batteries may seem like the least of your worries, but they are actually one of the more dangerous items on our list. 

Teflon-Coated Pots And Pans

Do you use Teflon-coated pots and pans in your home? Did you know that Teflon can be dangerous? The problem with these types of pots and pans comes when the pans begin to chip or flake. These pans are only meant to be used with plastic utensils to avoid chipping the Teflon. If you do chip the Teflon and ingest some of what chips off, it could be harmful to your body. If you have these types of pans in your home, it’s best to get rid of them and switch to copper or stainless-steel pots and pans. There isn’t enough information available on the damaging effects of Teflon on the human body, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you decide to keep them, at least throw them away if they begin to chip or flake.

You Might Need A Plumber If You Smell This

It’s not something you like to talk about. The stinky things that happen in the bathroom. However, you’ll have to call a plumber if you have a blocked sewer drain. They can help to deter those stinky methane gas smells you get when you go outside. Breathing in methane gas is dangerous for your health and can cause various problems. Methane gas can cause headaches, nausea, heart palpitations, unconsciousness, and dizziness when exposed to too much. Call a plumber immediately before it gets worse if you smell something stinky coming from your yard and begin to feel the effects of methane gas poisoning. It’s not a pleasant smell and may smell somewhat like rotten eggs.
