The Ultimate Deal On Fire Damage Remediation in West Pensacola
Fire Damage Restoration in Your West Pensacola Home
Most people in West Pensacola are lost without their electrical appliances and gadgets that fill their homes. Everyone uses them all the time and are surrounded by them each day, so people do not think about the dangers they pose. Electrical cord safety is essential, as a broken or frayed cord can start a fire quickly.
When a frayed cored started a small fire in the living room of your home, you want help cleaning up the fire damage in West Pensacola right away. Leaving the settled smoke and soot to sit for too long creates additional damage. SERVPRO understands that moving fast in a situation like this is necessary, and we have the tools to help you make your home look as if nothing ever happened.
To keep you and your family safe, only use extension cords when necessary. It is safer to plug cords directly into the wall outlets, so do what you can to arrange items, so they are near outlets. Never connect a series of short extension cords, as this can be very dangerous and raises your risk for fire.
Part of the restoration process means that SERVPRO needs to deodorize the affected area. Small, odor-producing particles continue to generate odors if they are not cleaned effectively. We may need to remove the source of the odor from your home thoroughly to get rid of it entirely, such as charred structural materials. We also need to recreate the conditions which caused the odor penetration. For example, if smoke caused the issue, we use a deodorizing fog or smoke to eliminate the odors.
Additional ways to protect your home include keeping your cords neatly organized with approved cord bundling devices or ties. Labeling the ties as you go is a good idea as well so it is easier to find what cord you need when unplugging a DVD player or game system from your television.
Never plug any extension cords into a surge protector. Extension cords can heat up fast, especially if there are other plugs in the nearby outlets. Be sure you have a long enough cord each time and have different sizes on hand. Extension cords are reasonably inexpensive, so it is more than worth it to have different sizes available to you at all times.
