Garage Fire Safety Tips!
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, residential garage fires tend to spread faster than fires which start in another area of a home. Check out these tips to learn how to prevent tires in your garage:
- Store flammable substances, such as paints, gasoline, oil or varnish outside the garage an home, preferably in a shed.
- Always keep items which can catch fire on high shelves and away from appliances that produce heat.
- Use electrical appliance or tools carefully.
- Install a heat alarm that will sound when it detects dangerously high temperatures.
- Don't fill portable gasoline containers inside.
However, if a fire happens in your garage contact SERVPRO of Pinehurst, Moore & Montgomery to make your garage look "Like it never even happened."
How Fire Damage Can Continue to Affect Your Home or Businesses Contents and Structure!
Fire damage affecting your home needs quick remediation or secondary damages will result. Call SERVPRO because we are available 24/7.
Fire damage does not end the moment the firefighters leave your home or once the fire has been successfully put out. More damage may result from the water that was used to extinguish the fire; therefore, our restoration team employs specialized techniques to attend to the various challenges that arise. Though the restoration procedures may sound the same, your New Hope property requires unique solutions after such experiences.
The Fire Damage Restoration process begins the moment you call our SERVPRO team. We understand that such situations require an immediate response, and our representatives usually ask questions regarding the event. By responding to our questions, we are in a position to immediately respond with appropriate resources and equipment. To determine the extent of the damage caused by the soot, smoke, and fire, we perform a careful inspection of the building. The examination helps us to formulate a relevant plan of action.
Some fire incidents may compromise the roofs, walls, and windows of your property. By offering immediate roof-tarp and board-up solutions, we can attend to such concerns. Such services ensure the security of the building is maintained and help in minimizing further damage. If water is present, we employ appropriate water removal techniques. For instance, pumps to physically extract the water, as well as using air movers and dehumidifiers to dry wet areas.
When soot particles are mixed with water and penetrate hard to reach areas, rotting may take place, and the odor challenge may result. Our SERVPRO technicians are trained to locate and eliminate the unpleasant odors through a process known as deodorization. We can use thermal foggers to dispense deodorants into target locations and neutralize the odor causing particles. Where possible, we physically remove any decomposed particles to control the odor problem.
