If health and safety of your kitchen are not cared for, it can threaten the health of your family. Here are the things that must be considered to create a healthy and safe kitchen in your house, among others:
1. Exposure
Make sure the kitchen area you are getting enough sunlight. Important role of natural lighting for the kitchen. Besides required for lighting and kill the seeds of bacteria, also can avoid the kitchen of nuisance animals, like cockroaches and rats who enjoyed the corners of the room is dark and damp.
The kitchen should have artificial lighting is bright enough to replace natural light. Artificial lighting should be adequate (not dimmed and no glare) to perform each job and see the changes in food color. Lighting is too dim or too bright can cause eye strain. 

Make sure the kitchen area has a ventilation (opening windows and doors) is good for the smooth circulation of air. Exposure not only on one side, but on two sides or more, in order to create cross ventilation. Smoke and steam from the cooking process must be streamed out and replaced with fresh air. Rotating air is intended to avoid unpleasant smells and the incidence of poisoning gases out of the smoke or gas stoves (NO2 - Nitrogen Dioxide).
You can also use the exhaust fan to help remove smoke and steam from the cooking process, because the exhaust fan to suck air and pull the oil in the chamber. It should be noted also, the exhaust fan should be cleaned on a regular basis in order to function optimally. 

In addition, on the stove cooker hood should be installed to drain the smoke and steam from the cooking process. Currently on the market has been sold cooker hood with a variety of shapes and sizes.
3. Material
In addition, on the stove cooker hood should be installed to drain the smoke and steam from the cooking process. Currently on the market has been sold cooker hood with a variety of shapes and sizes.
Choose the wall material that is resistant to heat and steam. Ceramics are widely used as a kitchen wall, because in addition to powerful and easy to clean, the price is more affordable than granite. Avoid using textured walls for cracks will be difficult to clean and can be a heap of dirt, dust, and oil. 

For the floor should select materials that are not slippery floor, because the area was splattered kitchen vulnerable oil and water.
Avoid cooking area of ​​objects that are flammable, such as plywood material. Should select materials that are resistant to fire and heat such as, stainless steel, granite, and ceramics.
4. Equipment
Use your electronic equipment such as refrigerators, dishwashers, and microwaves as efficiently as possible. Electronic equipment requires electrical energy is very large and can cause effects of electromagnetic radiation.

We recommend that you place the microwave and oven out of reach of children.
Get used to not be too often processed food using the microwave, because microwaves in a microwave to remove nutrients in food, so do not be beneficial to our health.
Keep the stove with a window so that the flames in the wind and the curtains do not lead to a flame.
Use of material ceramic tableware / porcelain rather than using plastic, because the chemicals found in plastics can contaminate food. This also applies if you heat the food with microwaves.
5. Cleanliness
We recommend that you clean the kitchen from the oil and crumbs of food every time you finish cooking to avoid the growth of bacteria and fungi.
Dispose of kitchen waste at least once a day. Garbage is not disposed of more than 1 day potential growth of bacteria and fungi, which if left unchecked can damage the health of its inhabitants.
Better to have a filter (filter) water to reduce bacteria and viruses that may be contained in the water, so water consumed more secure cleanliness and health. But avoiding use of chlorine in the water, because chlorine is corrosive and can harm the health of skin and eyes.
Get used to clean the water storage tray under the refrigerator, at least 2 times a year. If not cleaned regularly can potentially grow mushrooms.
6. Security
Familiarize you do not save and spraying pesticide or insecticide to combat bullying animals (ants, cockroaches, rats, etc.) in the kitchen area. Generally insects are neurotoxic (toxins that disrupt nerve) and contains carcinogens. If you had to spray insecticide, be sure to use vents wide open. Avoid heating the oil to smoke, because the resulting oil becomes toxic.
With these simple steps, your kitchen will become a vital space in a healthy and safe home for your family.
