What is the Best Way to Restore Fire Damaged Appliances in Ormond Beach?
How to Restore Appliances After Fire Damage in Your Ormond Beach Home
Fires can start anywhere and anytime, but the most common type of fire in the U.S.A is the kitchen fire. The reason for this is the high number of fires in the kitchen compared to other rooms in a home. The kitchen is where electricity, heat, grease, and water come together. Grease fires are hazardous because they can get out of control rapidly and spread from the stove throughout your kitchen and into other rooms in your home, leading to extensive destruction.
Cleaning up your Ormond Beach home after fire damage can be a huge undertaking. Therefore, working with a restoration company like SERVPRO is vital. We have a team of trained professionals with the expertise to restore your home and its contents safely and effectively.
Fire damage can continue to occur in your home even after you have extinguished the fire. If you do not take steps to clean up your possessions, soot, ash, and smoke odors can remain in your home. The appliances in your kitchen like the oven, refrigerator, stove, dishwater, microwave, freezer, and trash compactor may have soot and other residues. Many of these appliances may not break down because of smoke damage, but they can be unsightly if covered in soot, scorched or charred.
The surfaces of appliances are like those of hard-surfaced furniture. Therefore, our technicians can wet clean and polish the surfaces to remove the residues. Many appliances are electrical. We disconnect such appliances from the source of power before cleaning. The specialist cleaning products we use can eliminate soot, ash, and other residues.
After cleaning the soot and smoke from these devices, we can contact an authorized electronic service firm to check them. Our SERVPRO crew ensures that the safety check confirms that the appliances are suitable for use before turning them on. Fire and high humidity can cause electrical shorts in electrically-powered equipment. Therefore, if any appliance does not survive the damage, make a claim with your insurer for a replacement unit.
A fire can ruin the critical contents that make your home more comfortable in which to live. SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach can assist you to prevent further damage to such contents. Call us today at (386) 677-9993 for prompt cleanup.
