Preventing Fires in Your Vero Beach, FL Property

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

Kitchen after a fire We are available 24/7 for all your fire remediation needs!

Below are some simple yet effective home fire prevention tips that we can all follow to prevent common household fires.

Cooking Fires: Cooking fires make up at least 23 % of home fires and 9 % of fatalities. They can start with something so simple like a hand towel that is placed too close to a stove to an entirely dangerous house fire in just a matter of seconds. To prevent cooking fires, avoid ever leaving anything combustible near the stove burner. Keep them at least 3 feet away from the cooktop and this includes wall decorations and curtains.

Heating Equipment: Space heaters and wood stove tops are the most common heating equipment that causes house fires. They account for 15 % of house fires and 13 % of fatalities. Most heating equipment fires take place when space heaters or wood stove tops are placed near combustibles with nobody around attending to the area. Such fires can be prevented by placing space heaters or wood stove tops at least 3 feet away from bedding, drapes, and other flammable items. You also need to plug them directly into power sockets instead of using extension cords and switch them off completely when you head to bed or leave the house.

Electrical Equipment: Overloaded extension cords or bad electrical connections are dangerous as they can melt the wiring system which starts house fires. This type of fire accounts for 9 % of home fires and 10 % of fatalities. To prevent this type of fire, replace your extension cords which seem to be fraying. Those extension cords that are undersized to support the number of electronics you have also need to be changed to larger-gauge cords. Extension cords are also not supposed to be run below rugs as accidents are just waiting to happen. Other causes of accidents may involve miscellaneous incidents that are caused by negligent homeowners.

Fire Damage Restoration: Prevention is not that difficult to accomplish if we follow the correct recommended steps. However, occasionally things just happen unexpectedly which are simply beyond our control. If you have suffered from an unfortunate home fire, do not worry about fixing everything on your own. Always engage the services of professional fire damage restoration experts who can assess the extent of your home damage and recommend the proper techniques that need to be taken. It can be hard to come back from a home fire both physically and mentally which is why it is crucial to make use of professional restoration services. Focus on recuperating mentally while the experts take charge of getting your home back to its original physical condition with careful expertise and equipment.

Our crew is fully trained in the latest fire restoration techniques so you can rest assured you home is in the best hands. Room with smoke and soot damage after a fire loss.

We’ve compiled a list of important information and advice below that you can follow in the aftermath of a house fire.

When your home is damaged, you should first contact your homeowners’ insurance agent immediately to discuss losses.

Also, keep records of all your conversations with the adjuster, and what areas they assessed. You want to make sure you have all the proper documentation in order before you hire fire damage restoration services.

Man removing water damaged laminate flooring. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all your water restoration needs!

The longer that water sits in your home, the more havoc it will wreak on its structure and your possessions. Here are a few dangers caused by water damage that many homeowners don't notice until it's too late. 

1. Mold: Mold begins growing with in the first 72 hours after a water loss. Mold can render porous items such as furniture, clothing, paper, drywall, unsealed wood, and much more unsalvageable. Mold remediation can be costly and often not completely covered by insurance policies.

  1. Structural Problems: The weight of water is enough to put stress on your home's foundation, flooring, and walls and cause the need for extensive repairs. We're careful to extract as much moisture as possible when restoring homes with water damage. 

    3. Electrical Dangers-Water, wiring, and appliances are never a good combination, and water emergencies often cause major appliances to malfunction or pose electrical hazards. Having your home thoroughly assessed and inspected is the best safety measure to take once water damage has occurred. 

    4. Hazardous Materials-Water damage is often accompanied by dangerous debris, such as contaminated plaster and materials with lead. Our team is well equipped to repair your home in addition to removing any hazards.

If you're facing a water emergency, SERVPRO of Vero Beach is here to get your home quickly back to normal.
