Overextended Outlets Could Spark Fires in Your Goulding Home
SERVPRO Technicians Understand That Fire Damage Often Includes Dealing With Water Damage
For any Goulding homeowner, appliances play a significant role in making your at-home life comfortable. The downside of this is that you are always at the mercy of when they work and when they do not. With improperly maintained equipment or appliances requiring more power than the outlet provided can supply, you run risks like fires breaking out. Of course, the most advisable thing would be to monitor the condition of the appliances in your house and repair them as needed, you might not be as mindful of the tolerances of your outlets installed in your house.
Fires can happen with little warning, but you can inspect outlets and do some reading about the required wattage your equipment needs to function normally. If you are exceeding this amount with the outlet you are trying to use, you might consider reconfiguring the arrangement of the room or running a new outlet with the appropriate tolerances. Unfortunately, not every home is going to be able to avoid fire damages in Goulding this way, as many houses are older and paperwork regarding the electrical systems is no longer accessible.
When a fire does occur in your home, the rapid response on your end can often help the problem from getting worse. While our experienced SERVPRO restoration specialists are available whenever you need us, this process must wait for the local fire department to finish extinguishing the blaze. Their diligent work might keep the fire from affecting other areas of your home, but this often comes with an issue of its own: water damage.
With the high volume of water that typically gets used to put out a fire, there is often no place for this liquid to go. The water damage poses a threat not only to the structural integrity of the house in the area where it pools, but it also presents the possibility for compounding damage like fungal growth on top of the other restoration work that needs to happen.
Our SERVPRO professionals get to work right away extracting the water using pump trucks from our fleet and wet-vacs fitted with extraction wands. Drying is the next step in the process, which involves sophisticated equipment like drying mats to pull moisture up from the flooring of your home. Removing the water damage paves the way for all necessary fire restoration efforts to follow.
When your home suffers fire damage from overextended outlets or malfunctioning appliances, you can trust the experienced and professional team at SERVPRO of West Pensacola to help you clean up the mess. Our team is available 24/7 by calling (850) 469-1160.
