Fire-damaged electronics can present a serious hazard. Do not attempt to turn on or operate any electrical device that you suspect has been damaged by fire as they are prone to overheating upon startup. Another danger is that smoke residues can contain acids that corrode metal surfaces. If the residues are not removed, corrosion causes electronic failure in the device. There are even different types of smoke residues that can cause different levels of damage. Because of this we urge you again, not to attempt to turn these electronics on or clean them at home. A SERVPRO Franchise will coordinate the restoration of your electronics, including:
- Television sets
- DVD players
- And more
The key to restoring electronics is taking prompt action to prevent further damage. Electronics will be cleaned and inspected by a qualified electronics technician.
