Leading Cause of Household Fires

7/5/2018 (Permalink)

Leading Cause of Household Fires

According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking is the leading factor in household fires in the United States. From overheated stoves to unattended flames, the kitchen presents a variety of hazards for even the most astute home chef. While living room and bedroom fires account for a small percentage of annual household fires, staying safe in the kitchen will prevent significantly more fires from damaging your property and endangering your safety.

Avoidable Accidents

Everyone experiences an accident in the kitchen from time to time. You might forget to turn off the burner or allow a sudden blast from the oven to set off your smoke alarm. Tiny accidents can lead to big trouble down the road. Here are some ways to prevent kitchen fires:

Set timers and pay attention to them.

Cover up unused outlets with plastic covers to prevent sparks.

Wear protective clothing when you cook with hot oil.

Keep small children away from pot handles and other hot objects.

If your kitchen begins to fill with smoke, try opening a window or another door to increase ventilation. You may even consider installing a fan to help circulate the air. You might be tempted to disable a ringing smoke detector out of annoyance. Avoid disabling your smoke detector even for a minute because you might forget to turn it back on when you really need it.

Staying Alert

Kitchens might present the most dangerous opportunity for fire hazards, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the rest of your home. Turn off electric items that aren’t in use, and keep flammable fabrics away from direct heat sources. Not only will monitoring your electrical items keep you from causing a fire, but doing so will also help you save energy in the long run. The key to effectively preventing household fires is establishing a system of vigilance between you and your whole family.

If you’ve recently experienced damage as a result of water or fire damage, then let SERVPRO Flagler County / NSB-Titusville be your go-to source for information and advice.

Holiday Home Fires

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Holiday Home Fires The devastation of a home fire can be unbearable. Having a preparedness guide and educating family members the importance of fire safety is key.

The U.S Fire Administration has studied that each year, nearly 47,000 fires occur during the holidays. The cost is around $554 million in property damages each winter season! Wow, that's a huge number! Not to mention, the American Red Cross has found a 10% rise in home fires since 2000. So what are some important preparedness tips to help insure your family's safety during the holiday season?

  • Place Christmas trees, candles, and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources (fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, heat vents, and candles).
  • Purchasing artificial trees can be safer than real trees sometimes. If you do purchase a real tree, make sure that the needles are freshly green and don't easily break. Keep live trees as hydrated as possible by giving them plenty of water.
  • Make sure that light strings and other holiday decorations are in good condition. Do not use anything with frayed electrical cords and always follow the manufacturers instructions.
  • Always unplug the tree and holiday lights before leaving your home, or going to bed. Purchasing a timer as well will work to shut off the lights.
  • Make sure candles are always blown out before leaving a room, or going to bed.
  • Use sturdy tree stands to avoid tipping over. Also, keep curious pets and children away from the tree, as they can easily fall.
  • Keep anything that can catch on fire (pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and towels or curtains) away from your stove top.

Now, last but certainly not least, your smoke alarms are extremely important to check! Use the test button each month, and replace the batteries at least once a year. (Helpful tip): Changing out the batteries when changing your clocks (if you have a time change), is a great way to remember, or try changing them every New Years Eve!

Have a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season!

Fire Damage Fire Damage Cleaning In Cocoa Beach SERVPRO Can Clean Many Different Surfaces After a Fire in Cocoa Beach

How SERVPRO Removes Residue After a Fire Damaging Event

The level of dedication we have in restoring your property shows in the measures we take to provide you with a quality service. There are four proven actions that our Technicians use in their approach, during the cleaning stage of your restoration process that gives us a higher success rate when restoring the damaged areas of your property.
 
If you need fire damage restoration in Cocoa Beach, let our professionally trained Technicians assist you in restoring your property to its pre-damage condition. We'll explain the entire process to you and be there to answer any questions you may have along the way.
 
Mechanical - The first type of action our SERVPRO Technicians use at the beginning of the process is to vigorously work through the layers of soot, smoke and char damage with a dry mechanical pre-clean action. It assists us with removing soot and smoke on the top layers before any liquid products are applied and can help in making the entire process much smoother.
 
Lubrication - Next, for our second SERVPRO cleaning action, we deploy lubrication which consists of mixing our cleaning solution with any residue present. Mixing the two loosens the connection that the residue has with the surfaces they are in contact with and makes both the solution and residue easier to remove.
 
Chemical Action - Leading to the third action used by SERVPRO Technicians, where we use chemicals to change a residue's composition that makes the soot and smoke particles easier to remove. For example; mixing a bleach solution with shampoo will work well when attempting to remove oxidized stains from materials such as cotton or wool.
 
Suspension and Dispersion - The fourth and final action that we use during our cleaning process is a form of dissolving and emulsifying. Starting with submerging items into a solution and letting the chemicals separate the item from the residue. Once mixed with the solution it changes the composition of the particles taking away its ability to bond with the surface layers of the object we're attempting to clean.
 
Depending on what we're working with, it can be easy to determine which action to use. For example, Syrup is easily removed with a water-based cleaning solution, while an oil-based cleaning solution quickly removes oil.

Common Causes Of Fire Damage

9/19/2016 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Common Causes Of Fire Damage Fires can cause far more damage than a simple burn.

Various Sources of Fire Damage

Fires can cause far more damage than a simple burn, coating interiors and exteriors alike with soot and ash, leaving behind a persistent smell of smoke, causing damage to appliances rooms away from the fire, and countless other problems. At SERVPRO, we have the right tools and equipment to deal with just about anything a fire can throw at us, but knowing what caused the fire is a crucial step in approaching the restoration. Here are some of the causes of fire damage we have encountered over the years.
 
Kitchen and Grease Fires
Kitchen fire damage in New Smyrna Beach is a frequent call for us, and a great many fires start in many different kitchen appliances. Toasters and waffle irons can malfunction and cause electrical fires, ovens can be forgotten and set fire to contents, but perhaps worst of all, stovetop fires can quickly spiral out of control as they are open flames and sometimes can not be doused with water. Keeping a fire alarm charged and ready in your kitchen is essential to help prevent a little fire from growing into a large one.
 
Lightning Strikes
A good lightning rod can deter many fires from lightning strikes, but not necessarily all of them. Particularly common in wet regions around the world, fires from lightning strikes often start on rooftops or in attics, where few safety measures are put into place. Luckily, in many cases rainwater can help to or completely douse the flames, preventing massive damage from occurring in many cases.
 
Electrical Fires
When electrical devices and electronics malfunction, they run the risk of starting an electrical fire. These fires can not be doused with water, and must be put out with a modern, water-free fire extinguisher. As homes fill up with more and more electronic devices, we have seen an uptick in the numbers of these cases.

Candle Fires
Although the use of candles is no longer as prevalent as it was in years past, many homes still succumb to fires started from an unwatched candle or lantern. If you're not around to monitor an open flame, even a small one, you should extinguish it.
 
SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach-Titusville is strategically located to provide fast response times and local restoration services for fire damage of all types to local homes. If you've suffered damage to your home and need repairs/restorations, call us at (321) 264-0205.

Cape Canaveral Fire Damage  - Fire Damage in Cape Canaveral and Knowing What to Expect After a Fire has Occurred in the Home

Fire can start any place in the home. Based on the circumstances, the fire may spread from the outside into the inside and can do an insurmountable amount of damages within minutes. The severity of the Cape Canaveral Fire Damage can often depend on several different factors including how quickly the fire department arrives to put the fire completely out, what has caused the fire (gas, chemicals or an electrical shortage), or other factors that contribute to the flames. In either event, it is necessary for the family that occupies the home to identify what they can arrange to get back to regular life as soon as possible. Starting right away is essential since people cannot occupy the home again until the home meets certain codes that are regulated by their city or town.
 
To that end, it is important for the homeowner to contact the right professionals to assist with getting things done properly and in an expeditious manner. Part of the restoration process begins with the initial clean-up so what can the family expect.
 
Smoke Damage
When there is fire, there is also smoke. Unfortunately, because this is true, the smoke may cover much more territory in the home than the flames. It is important that the a Cape Canaveral fire damage recovery team assess the smoke damage areas before you occupy the home again. They can then remove the smoke odor from the carpeting, furniture, walls, ceilings and any other areas impacted in the home.
 
Boarding Up Windows to Prevent Vandalism
In some situations, the fire damage is so severe that no one can stay in the home. Because fires can happen day and night, you may need to board up the house before everyone leaves the property. This is also one of the primary determinations for contacting the professionals to assist with this job. The role that they play is usually all encompassing so they can help with the equipment and tools needed to complete this job as quickly as possible.
 
Getting the right people in place is one of the keys to making sure the family can get back into the home again and function as normal. Therefore, it is essential for people to know what to expect in advance.

Fire Damage
After a fire, the first thing you may notice is everything that has been burned. A fire can ruin just about everything in the home. However, SERVPRO can help you to prioritize all of the damage and prevent further damage from being done.

Restoration companies like SERVPRO will make sure that everything is cleaned up and sanitized. By using the correct tools and chemicals, they can remove all of the bad odors and residue left behind from the fire.

Secondary Water Damage
Damage is also left behind from the water used to put out the fire or from the pipes or water tank that can burst during a fire. A team of restoration experts will act fast to remove any excess water by using their industrial sized fans and water pumps.

2. Wet smoke is emitted from plastic, synthetics, rubber and other substances, and burns at lower heat. The burning items smolder, may be sticky and smeary, and gives off a pungent odor. It is more difficult to clean. Using the wrong cleaner on wet smoke can make the damage worse.
3. Protein fire residue comes from the evaporation of materials, rather than an open Cocoa Beach Fire. It is invisible in the air, but it discolors walls, varnishes, artwork and more. It gives off an extremely pungent odor.
4. Fuel oil soot occurs when a furnace puffs back, creating soot damage to the rooms affected. SERVPRO can assess and repair the fire damage quickly.
5. Fire extinguisher, fingerprint powder, and tear gas are examples of the many other causes of damaging residue that can be cleaned efficiently by SERVPRO.

SERVPRO professionals are trained in water and fire damage restoration, including pervasive odor removal, deep cleaning of carpets, upholstery, draperies, walls, woodwork, ceilings, floors and more. They know the structure of buildings and how smoke travels through it. They know the properties of smoke and how a particular cleaning and restoring is based on it. SERVPRO’s professionals are trained and experienced in cleaning and restoring quickly, and will bring items back to pre-fire condition if possible. Items will be pretested for restorability.

Many other items can be restored, such as electronics, art, kitchen items, bedding, clothing, bric-a-brac and more. Cocoa Beach smoke can also damage plumbing, fabrics, paper documents and books.

SERVPRO professionals are also equipped to remove odors and use the most up-to-date equipment. An ultra-low volume fogger and a thermal fogger both neutralize odor causing particles.
