Overloaded Electrical Outlets can Lead to Fire Damage to Property in Paradise Valley
Team SERVPRO Remediates Fire Damage as Well as Offers Tips to Prevent a Recursion
Using social media via cell phone use keeps many teens and adults in Paradise Valley in contact with friends and family. Keeping cell phones charged often means plugging charging cables into adapters. This practice and others like it can lead to overheated plugs and eventually cause a fire.
Using properly rated power strips can protect your Paradise Valley home from fire damage caused by too many electrical devices plugged into one socket. The rubber or soft plastic electrical cords on many devices give off noxious fumes when burned, which can create very dense soot. The plugs can also contribute to this, as well as melt and cause the carpeting to burn.
The caring professionals at SERVPRO know how this kind of disaster can affect your family and we are ready to help clean up the damage and make things “Like it never even happened.” The areas above doorways and windows near the fire often contain concentrated levels of smoke residue. We begin working to remove this soon after we arrive. Allowing this substance to remain longer only allows it to adhere more tightly, making it more difficult to clean away. We also clean anything else in your home where smoke residue and soot settled.
After a fire, odor from burned materials and possessions becomes very noticeable. While cleaning soot off surfaces removes a significant amount of this odor, if the fire created enough smoke, the odor left behind might remain because its source hides in areas where our tools cannot reach.
Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) can efficiently handle this predicament. For the toughest odors, we rely on thermal fogging techniques. For smaller fires, the use of gel packs and injected deodorizers often suffices. However, we always check with our valuable customers to make sure that they are satisfied with the result.
SERVPRO of Phoenix wants to ensure that our customers love living in their homes after a disaster. We have an extensive range of equipment to mitigate any sized disaster, large or small, and have the experience and training needed to provide you with the level of service you deserve. Call us at (480) 503-2090 so we can help mitigate your Deer Valley or Lone Mountain residence after it suffers smoke or fire damage.
