Accidentally Leaving Your Stove On Can Cause A Fire In Your Minneapolis Home
Leaving Your Stove On Can Cause A Fire
There are many things inside of your home that can cause fire damage. Some of them are even objects that you use every day of your life, such as your stove. At first glance, they are merely a part of your home and nothing to worry over, as they should be. However, if these devices are misused, they can cause a fire. Accidentally leaving your stove on, after you finish cooking, is an unfortunately common way to set a fire in your home.
Detecting a burning odor and hearing your smoke alarm in your Minneapolis home are significant indications that fire damage is occurring. The bacon grease left in your pan from cooking breakfast has caught fire and then spread to your nearby paper towel roll and cooking ingredients. By the time you use the fire extinguisher to smother the flames, your cupboards and belongings have already been covered in soot. Additionally, whatever foodstuffs were in the area have been burnt up by the fire.
At first glance, the damage may seem like something you can handle at home. Afterall, it has mostly been caused by smoke. However, only professionals, like SERVPRO, know specifically what cleaning method to use on the remains of a fire.
Soot adheres at a high temperature but selecting a method of remediation also depends on the temperature of the surface area. SERVPRO knows precisely how to remediate the fire damage left behind in your home. Our technicians can carefully investigate your kitchen and figure out what cleaning methods to use. In fact, we may have to use more than one as it is common for multiple types of soot and staining to be left behind. To handle the soot, we can use lubricative, chemical, or abrasive cleaning techniques.
Here at SERVPRO, we always strive to return your home to its preloss state, and it begins with ridding your home of every reminder of the fire, including scent. We can use advanced tools, such as air scrubbers, to handle the foul odor that fire leaves behind. The device uses HEPA filters to pull the odorous particles out of the air and neutralize them before filtering the newly cleaned air back out. Once our specialists are satisfied with the quality of the remediation, our job is done.
Do not let the potential embarrassment of an accident cause you to hesitate. Reach out to SERVPRO of Minnetonka by calling (952) 473-4837. Day or night, we are always open to take your call.
