House fires are sudden and unexpected

House fires are sudden and unexpected

These tips from the American Red Cross will not only help you prevent house fires, but they will also help you prepare for one and make sure your family is safe if ever one does occur.

  1. Get Rid of Fire Hazards

Identifying and taking the necessary precautions to ensure that you do not have fire hazards in your home is important.  This means every electronic items producing heat should be kept at least three feet away from anything flammable.  Space heaters and electric blankets should be turned off when not in use.

  1. Avoid Smoking in Bed and Extinguish Candles

Smoking in bed is dangerous because of the possibility of hot ashes igniting flammable bedding.  It is also important to make sure all candles are extinguished when unattended.

  1. Make Sure Your Children Are Informed

Talk to your children about the importance of not playing with fire. You can take an additional precautionary steps by keeping all matches and lighters stored high and out of reach or locked up in a place that your children cannot access.

  1. Check Your Smoke Alarms

Be sure you have working smoke detectors on every floor of your home and inside and outside of every sleeping area.  Check these monthly to ensure the batteries are working. Replace smoke detectors every 10 years.

  1. Make a Plan

Discuss your outside meeting spot with your family and devise an escape plan.  This escape plan should be practiced at least twice a year, and you should make sure that every member of your family is able to escape in less than two minutes.

Things you should NOT do after a puff back:

2/23/2021 (Permalink)

Things you should NOT do after a puff back:

  1. Don't attempt to wash any walls, wallpaper or painted surfaces. Don't shampoo your carpet or upholstery.
  2. Don’t use standard cleaning products that may cause further damage and may not get rid of the oil residue, toxins and odors.
  3. Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat or water.
  4. Don't turn on ceiling fans or increase air circulation as this will only spread the soot around.
  5. Don't send garments to an ordinary dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set smoke odor.

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

12/14/2020 (Permalink)

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of South Huntington will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  SERVPRO of South Huntington has the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
