Understanding Different Types of Fires

Though all fires can be devastating for your home, not all are the same. Each type of fire can result in different kinds of damage. This will require a different kind of fire restoration solution.

Common types of fires include:

  • Protein Fire: Food from the oven or stove has burned, leaving strong, burned-food odors and smoke residue on contents and surfaces.
  • Complex Fire: Multiple natural and synthetic items in your home have burned, causing greasy yellow residue on contents. Here, emergency corrosion mitigation is needed to protect at-risk surfaces.
  • Natural Fire: Trees, shrubs, and bushes have burned, and smoke has penetrated the structure from outside. Smoke residue and odor are present.
  • Furnace Malfunction: Heating appliances like oil-fired furnaces have malfunctioned. This causes smoke to be distributed throughout the property.

Avoid Trying to “DIY” Fire Damage Cleanup

Without proper cleanup, fire residue can be hazardous and cause health problems. Not everyone knows what to do after a fire. In the event of a fire, you should not attempt to clean up your home on your own, as you may end up causing even more damage. Only emergency fire damage restoration experts with the right training and tools can ensure the job is done properly. ServiceMaster Restore is the expert in our field. We have industry leading techniques and training developed over our 65+ years of experience.

Preventing Fire Damage in Your Home

While we are always here to help in the event of a fire, we also want to help you prevent these devastating events from occurring in the first place.

Here are some fire prevention tips:

  • Regular Inspection of Detectors: Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors regularly. Replace batteries as needed and test them regularly to guarantee they function correctly.
  • Safe Cooking Practices: Never leave cooking food unattended on the stove or in the oven. Cooking-related fires are a common cause of larger house fires.
  • Manage Flammable Items: Keep flammable items like blankets, curtains, and paper away from heat sources. This minimizes the risk of accidental ignition.
  • Electrical Safety: Avoid overloading electrical outlets or extension cords, as this can lead to electrical fires. Always use these devices as intended.
  • Chimney and Vent Maintenance: Have your chimneys and vents inspected and cleaned annually to prevent creosote buildup, which can lead to chimney fires.

Taking these precautions can help reduce the risk of fire damage in your home. However, accidents can still happen. If you do suffer a fire in your home, do not hesitate to contact us. We are available 24/7 and are always here to help you get back on your feet after a fire.
