How Kitchen Clutter can be a Fire Hazard in Pearl River Kitchens

4/1/2020 (Permalink)

fire damaged kitchen. Many home fires each year begin in the kitchen, like in this home. Never leave cooking unattended and call SERVPRO should a fire occur.

Allowing Clutter to Build in Your Pearl River Kitchen Can Lead to Fire Damage 

Many people find themselves extremely busy and choose to forgo cleaning in favor of sleep; however, clutter can make fire damage more likely. For this reason, it is always crucial to keep your cooking space tidy and organized. 

Consider a situation where fire damage strikes your Pearl River kitchen. An empty cereal box, some paper grocery bags, and several pieces of food packaging left on your counter. With each meal, you add a little more to the pile. As you cook, a grease fire starts and splatters. 

The splatter hits the clutter, and soon it is up in flames as well. Unfortunately, before you manage to grab the extinguisher and snuff the small fire out, it burns through the clutter and stains your white cabinetry. In this situation, immediately calling for professional help is the best thing you can do for your home. 

Here at SERVPRO, we train our fire and smoke damage remediation technicians to handle fire losses, both big and small. We use advanced technology, and we are always available because we understand that accidents are not on a schedule. When you call SERVPRO for help, we always try to get a professional team of technicians to your home within hours of speaking to you. 

Once we arrive at your apartment, our technicians can immediately get to work. Fire damage can leave behind an intense malodor. Setting up an air scrubber, equipped with a HEPA filter, is one of the first things our SERVPRO techs can do to combat the odor. While we work to remove the smoke-residue from your countertop and cupboards, the air scrubber can remove the particles from the air, which are causing the unpleasant smell. 

While setting up the air scrubber, other members of our team can begin to remediate the stains in your kitchen. Our techs can use a special cleaning agent that is made from organic components and designed to break down greasy soot. It may take more than one application of the cleaner, but our technicians do not mind. After all, at SERVPRO, we always try to leave you feeling, "Like it never even happened." 

If your home has suffered fire damage, get help now. Speak with SERVPRO of Slidell by dialing (985) 649-1516. We're open 24/7.
