Fires can be tough ... but count on US!
House fires are one of the most traumatic events a homeowner can experience; aside from the initial damage from the fire and fire department efforts, there is a lot to be concerned about when trying to get back into the home.
First and foremost, you want to make sure that after the fire has been officially deemed out, you should look to call your local SERVPRO professionals to take this disaster off your hands. Our restoration efforts are powered by a highly trained staff that aims to keep damage at a minimum and your items free from further disturbance.
We strive to get to your home or place of business in a timely manner to assess the situation, provide the best plan of attack, and to exceed expectations as we make your disaster look "Like it never even happened."
Until Help Arrives (Fires): Part 1
A fire has swept through your home or business recently and you are having a tough time refraining from cleaning up the property because you know the professionals at SERVPRO are trained for moments like this.
As you await our staff to arrive, we do everything we can to make your disaster disappear and to bring your home back to preloss conditions. You must first understand that you need to be cautious in and around the home after the fire.
Check the premises for any appliances, running on electric or gas, that has been damaged by the fire or due to the efforts put forth by you, the fire department, or anyone who tried to extinguish the flames. Rather than seeing if they are able to turn on by checking their power, DO NOT!
Doing something like this could cause further damage to occur, and more issues for you to deal with when it is not needed!
Call the professionals at SERVPRO to help you along the way and stay tuned for Part 2!
Until Help Arrives (Fires): Part 2
While you wait for your local SERVPRO professionals to arrive, here are a couple more things you should refrain from doing to keep you safe and healthy:
If you find items that may have been stored near the fire or heat, like canned/packaged food or beverages, those items could have been negatively affected by the smoke; this means that it could be likely that they could contain toxins or other undesirables that are deemed unsuitable for consumption.
While you are looking at the food and beverages, check out any electrical appliances in the area that could have been close to any fire, heat, or water. We ask that you REFRAIN from cleaning any of those items, rather, call a reputable repair service to decide what to do and if your things are safe to use.

Hidden Water Damage: Part 1
In this 3-Part blog posting, we will discuss the many ways unseen water damage can cause some serious issues to house or property. This type of damage isn't discussed as much, as more common types of issues (like floods or burst pipes) are usually mentioned more.
The most common theme behind hidden water damage are household appliances. These usual suspects pose a certain amount of threat to your property if they are left unattended.
The list of appliances we will be discussing are as follows: refrigerators, washing machines, dish washers, air conditioners, and hot water heaters.
Please stay tuned for more information on this type of water damage; you will learn why these types of appliances are typically to blame for costly repairs when they shouldn't be!
Hidden Water Damage: Part 2
As we previously mentioned, this 3-Part blog series, featuring different types of appliances that are to blame for hidden water damage, will allow you to have a better understanding of things to look for to prevent costly repairs.
Our first culprit: Refrigerators
Whether you have a built-in ice cube making machine or not, these appliances are usually to blame for water damage in kitchens. One way to prevent this from happening is to pull them away from the walls to check the flooring and the water lines behind them; water lines are usually tangled and all over the place, so trying to avoid the cluttering of these lines should be essential to avoiding water damage.
Next: Washing Machines
It goes without saying that these appliances typically use A LOT of water; so it is understandable that common forms of water damage can be attributed to these appliances. As with the refrigerators, it is recommended to check behind washing machines to check for any leaks or problems with the hoses.
It is also recommended to replace the hoses every 5 years to avoid any issues/unforeseen repairs.
The last part of this 3-Part blog series will be released shortly!
