How To Prevent A Fire In Your Covina Home
Give our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina restoration specialists a call at (626) 387-4111 to help you make fire emergencies “Like it never even happened.”
Reducing Your Risks Of Fire Damage In Covina Homes
As you might have imagined, many fire loss incidents that have affected Covina homes since our restoration team first started serving the area were entirely preventable. Unfortunately, many of these situations were wholly destructive, compromising the entire house or business with effects that got out of control. There are ways that you can reduce your chances of experiencing fire loss emergencies, and also limiting their severity and destructiveness if they do arise.
When you consider how harmful fire damage in Covina residences is both to the structure and its occupants, homeowners want to do whatever possible to reduce these potential hazards. Even the fast response of our SERVPRO team is rarely enough to reduce very costly restoration and recovery efforts when ignition sparks and fire effects begin to spread wildly throughout the property. There are methods to reduce potential fires or to reduce the damage they can cause, however.
Check Aging Components in Your Home
Electrical systems, in particular, might have been state-of-the-art decades ago when they first got installed, but now they do not have the insulation or protection that is the standard of modern wiring. Exposed areas could superheat and lead to combustion.
Many fire incidents occur from accidents caused by careless smoking, often an unattended cigarette or the smoker falling asleep. While many brands have changed the composition so that cigarettes do not continually burn, it is still a risk that homeowners take - and one that our SERVPRO team must combat.
Installation of Fire Suppression System
Many homes have smoke alarms, and a small number of fire extinguishers tucked in convenient locations, but these can do little for fires away from these areas or when homeowners are in a panic. A suppression system reacts to the change in the environment and deploys retardant.
Fire loss incidents can get out of control quickly, especially without any provisions in place to slow the spread of effects. If disaster strikes, you are not alone. Give our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina restoration specialists a call at (626) 387-4111 to help you make fire emergencies “Like it never even happened.”

Performing Fire Damage Cleanup in Your Irwindale Home is Easier With Professionals
Let SERVPRO put your mind at ease while restoring your fire damage.
Don’t let fire damage take over your home.
Fires are a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Although you have taken many precautions to prevent a fire, it can still occur. Electrical faults are a leading cause of fires, and they can occur because of faulty wiring or overloading a plug with many appliances like washers, dryers, fans, and heaters.

We have the equipment and expertise to restore your home to make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.”
When we get into a home, we walk through the job with the homeowner to determine which areas have been affected. Our technicians then pretest the cleanability of surfaces to identify the items that can be restored. We also make a detailed inventory and scope of the affected areas. We then provide the property owner with a summary of our findings and explain the right steps to take to restore a home to its pre-fire damage condition.
Here at SERVPRO, we know that it is heartbreaking to see your possessions ruined whether it is a much-loved kitchen table or items with sentimental value like photos. Dealing with the mess that a fire makes of a residence is also daunting. That’s why we have a trained team of restoration specialists who can carefully comb through the debris and clear away what cannot be restored while carefully preserving the restorable items.
We also perform structural restoration, which includes eliminating charred contents that might seal in smoke like burned wood and insulation and evaluating floor coverings and carpets that may need to be removed. We also use equipment like hydroxyl generators to remove smoke odors from affected surfaces. We can also seal affected surfaces to prevent leftover odors from leaking into the home. If fire sprinklers or other firefighting efforts introduced water into your home, our crew performs water mitigation.

We Will Remove Any Odors Left Over After A Fire In Your Azusa Home
We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster and can start the odor removal process quickly to minimize your discomfort.
Fire Damage In Your Azusa Home Can Make It Necessary To Use Odor Removal Services
If you have recently had a non-life threatening or non-emergency fire in your home, you may have extinguished it with minimal damage. However, you may be left with a persistent smoke odor throughout your property that is difficult to remove, especially if the fire burned synthetic materials.
Removing smells is a complex part of soot and smoke damage restoration after a fire because it is invisible and it takes training to know how to remove them quickly and efficiently. If there is smoke odor caused by fire damage in your Azusa home, you can contact the professionals at SERVPRO to provide you with odor removal services. We can mitigate a significant amount of smoke and soot odor damage by using several techniques.
Odors result from airborne gases, chemicals, or small particles. The temperature and size of the fire determine how easily the smoke odor can be eliminated. Higher temperatures cause the pores of the surrounding materials to open and absorb the odors. Fire odor removal requires cleaning, deodorizing and sealing some materials.
Our technicians can remove all the soot and dust using a shop vac. Once we remove the larger particles, we can use dry-chem sponges to clean the affected areas. We also inspect a building to check for charred and burned materials. Removing these materials from your home is critical for helping eliminate the smell. If we come across materials that are impossible to remove, we can apply a sealant on them to lock in the smoke odors.
Our SERVPRO technicians can spray deodorizers throughout the affected areas so that the deodorizing agent can penetrate the pores of the affected surfaces. Our goal is to neutralize the odors you consider unpleasant. Our technicians can eliminate both real and heightened awareness odors. Odors can reappear after several days or months when the weather becomes humid again. If this happens, we can perform additional deodorization procedures.
If there is smoke damage after a fire in your home, you can call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111. We have the training and expertise to deal with different kinds of fire damage. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster and can start the odor removal process quickly to minimize your discomfort.

Our Fire Damage Technicians Explain The Specialty Cleaning Agents We Use To Restore Your Home In Covina To Pre-Damage Condition
SERVPRO has every cleaning agent and tool you can imagine to help you recover from a house fire as quickly and smoothly as possible.
These 3 Specialty Cleaning Agents Help Us Handle Fire Damage In Covina Homes
Many aspects of fire damage in Covina require more power than other household messes to clean up and remove safely from your home. While SERVPRO technicians sometimes make use of conventional glass and surface cleaning products, specific circumstances may require us to bring out more specific chemicals and cleaning agents that are designed for a specific task and purpose. Depending on the extent of the damages and what specific parts of your home the fire has impacted, we may need to use some of these cleaning agents in addition to more generalized solutions.
Strong Acid Cleaners
Some residues from fire damage in your Covina home may be best treated with the use of strong acid cleaners. These products are highly effective at washing away soot and ash from rough surfaces, and can even remove longstanding mineral deposits that may be unaffected by any off-the-shelf cleaning supplies. However, these chemicals can be hazardous without appropriate protective equipment and may cause damage to some surfaces in your home, so only certified SERVPRO technicians should apply them.
Liquid Creme Cleaners
Some of the most useful equipment in our arsenal of cleaning supplies are our liquid creme cleaning agents. These mixtures contain both standard cleaning products and small, mildly abrasive particles that can remove many types of stains and residues from hard and smooth surfaces in your home. These cleaning agents are especially useful for kitchen fires thanks to their ability to stick to smooth vertical surfaces without damaging them.
Wood Creme Cleaners
Similar to liquid creme agents, wood cremes are mixtures of cleaning chemicals and tiny particles that can scrub away smoke residues and other particles. These cremes, however, are much more gentle than most cleaning agents, making them one of our most effective tools for wood surfaces and smoke-damaged appliances that may be sensitive to other chemicals and cremes.
SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina has every cleaning agent and tool you can imagine to help you recover from a house fire as quickly and smoothly as possible. Call us at (626) 387-4111 for our 24/7 services.

Our Team Explains The Importance Of Indoor Air Quality Following A Fire In Your Covina Home
Give our experts a call anytime disaster strikes!
Air Purification Is Critical For Fire Damaged Covina Homes
After a damaging fire in your Covina home, there are threats present even in the atmosphere that a homeowner and their family need to monitor from a distance. Indoor air quality concerns can allow for respiratory concerns from lingering smoke, airborne debris and dust, and soot particles. Overcoming these effects is almost impossible for a homeowner to handle on their own, but our professional restoration team has equipment and expertise to remove this potential hazard.
When you consider all of the ways that fire damage in your Covina property can present itself, many homeowners might find themselves most concerned with structural elements and less about airborne threats. However, with the combustion of multiple materials including plastics, aerosols, chemicals and more commonly found in the average home, this environment could be dangerous to breath unfiltered. Our SERVPRO technicians have experience and training with the use of a full range of personal protective equipment from respirators to SCBA tanks for initial mitigation work when we first arrive at a fire-damaged property.
These threats only get more exasperated with the removal of debris and damaged components from the property in the earliest stages of restoration. Controlled demolition and cleanup by our SERVPRO specialists can circulate more smoke residue, debris, dust, and even harmful organic compounds present in the air to cause potential health risks to those exposed without breathing protection.
We set up and begin using hydroxyl generators and air scrubbers as soon as possible to begin filtering out harmful substances and particulates in the air. The HEPA filter installed in the machines can trap even microscopic debris, improving the air quality more and more the longer that these machines continue to run in the affected environments.
Air quality concerns often do not make the top of the priority list for those experiencing a structure fire that engulfs portions of their home. You can depend on our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina rapid response team to arrive quickly with the personnel and equipment to make a difference. Give our experts a call anytime disaster strikes at (626) 387-4111.

How We Remove Soot And Smoke Particles From Your Fire Damaged Home In Covina
No matter how small or huge a fire damage incident is, the smoke and soot that results can cause damage to your property.
Removing Soot And Smoke Particles From Your Covina Home During Fire Damage Restoration
No matter how small or huge a fire damage incident is, the smoke and soot that results can cause damage to your property. The various soot or smoke particles that need to be cleaned off your property are reliant on the type of substances that the fire consumed. Soot is usually produced when incomplete combustion takes place and depending on what the fire burned it can contain a mixture of dust, soils, metals, chemical and even acids. It is small in size and can float in the air and travel throughout your Covina property.
The smoke particles that a fire damage event produces in your Covina home can contain ash, oils, tar, carbon, and different kinds of chemicals. Our SERVPRO technicians perform appropriate cleaning and restoration procedures to prevent secondary damage. The soot and smoke particles which float in the air may lead to health effects, which is why our team uses appropriate personal protective equipment such as full face masks, goggles, gloves, and footwear when carrying out restoration procedures.
Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment to make work efficient. For instance, we can install dehumidifiers to address the moisture problem that results from the water that was used to extinguish the fire. We have the skills of determining what is salvageable and removing the unsalvageable items from the building. When we are removing smoke and soot particles from a carpet, we avoid impact when it is likely to embed the particles into the materials. For instance, we use HEPA vacuuming to lift the particles from the surface. For efficient results when we are using HEPA vacuums, we make sure there is a considerable distance between the nozzle and the surface.
Fire incidents are associated with odor problems. We have to identify and remove the odor-causing particles, or our SERVPRO technicians perform processes such as thermal fogging as a way of addressing the odor problem. Deodorants that have the abilities to neutralize the odors are emitted into specific areas.
SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina has the right equipment to clean and restore your property when it has suffered any degree of fire damage. Our highly trained experts work around the clock and offer solutions that suit both residential and commercial needs. Call (626) 387-4111 to work with a trusted industry leader.

Irwindale's Fire Damage Experts Discuss Keeping Track of Your Contents During Pack-Outs
For Help with Pack-Outs and Fire Loss Restoration to Your Irwindale Property Call SERVPRO
SERVPRO Offers Hi-Tech Programs and Equipment for Efficient Cleaning and Storage Off-site after a Fire Loss in the Irwindale Area
Whenever a fire ignites inside a building in Irwindale, the results can be quite devastating. The longer the blaze burns, the worse the fire damage can get. Elements of a fire including heat and smoke can both cause several different problems to your contents and building materials inside your home. Smoke can travel throughout a structure and leave behind soils and soot residues. The heat and flames created can cause fire damage in the form of burnt or charred structural components.
Since insurance companies separate their coverage of items by either being your structural materials or your contents, our SERVPRO technicians keep track of affected items based on whether they are attached to your house or not. During any fire damage mitigation in Irwindale, we often separate your contents and building materials by packing up your possessions and moving them out of affected areas of your home. Moving contents into a location that did not get affected by the burn helps keep the restoration of contents from negatively affecting building materials and vice versa.
Whenever we conduct a pack out on a property, we use a specialized computer inventory system to keep track of all of your items. Our CCIS Customer Content Inventory Service system produces consistent, professional pack-out inventories in electronic format. The program helps our SERVPRO restoration team keep track of what items of yours we have and where we have them. By using the CCIS, we can offer extra services to you and your insurance adjuster.
The CCIS software can help us retrieve items out of our storage warehouse. Sometimes you may need some of your possessions before the scheduled date to move things back occurs. The CCIS system helps us find exactly where your contents are and record that we have given them back to you.
Our computer software also helps keep track of how much money was saved by cleaning items instead of replacing them. If you ever need assistance after a burn inside your house call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 any day of the week.

Benefits Of Professional Fire Damage Restoration In Irwindale
When fire damages your Irwindale home, you need to arrange for cleanup and restoration quickly.
Benefits Of Professional Fire Damage Restoration
When fire damages your Irwindale home, you need to arrange for cleanup and restoration quickly. Before you grab a mop and a sponge realize that fire damage presents challenges with which the average homeowner is not familiar. Proceeding without that knowledge can result in the damage worsening rather than improving and raises health and safety issues. Our reliable fire damage restoration crews are ready to take on the tasks to protect you and your property.
Although anything that burned through or charred in your Irwindale home might seem to be the worst kind of fire damage, the smoke residues and soot must be addressed as well. The uncombusted particles in smoke are what makes up soot, extraordinarily acidic and corrosive substances that coat all surfaces it reaches. Soot damages nearly every type of building material used in the average home as well as fixtures, furnishings, and other contents. Permanent damage can develop within the first hours and progresses. We can halt the harm at an early point, limiting both the expense and disruption of recovery.
Upon arrival, our SERVPRO team assesses the extent and severity of the damage. We disengage HVAC systems to prevent the continuous spread of airborne soot throughout the home. Containment with physical barriers and sometimes negative pressure air scrubbers assists in keeping the damage isolated from spaces undamaged or only slightly compromised with light, ashy deposits. This approach can allow you to remain living on site during restoration. We work with your insurance company to accurately document your claims, including temporary relocations if needed for your family’s health and safety.
SERVPRO technicians are skilled in the restoration of even deep charring, using techniques mastered during IICRC coursework. Brushing and sanding reveal a solid surface we can restore, and we integrate replacement of surfaces too unstable to retain into a seamless whole. We evaluate the characteristics of the sooty residues and note if they differ from space to space. Loose soot dry sponges, dusts, or vacuums away. Stickier deposits can need cleansers with wetting agents and surfactants to break up the soiling before removal with wiping actions. Protein-based soot, often seen after kitchen fires, is thin but tenacious. Solvents and abrasives might be employed.
Fire damage is toxic, so permit SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina to ensure the safety of you and our crew during the entire project. We work efficiently, so the job completes quickly, permitting you to resume your day to day lifestyle swiftly. Call (626) 387-4111 just as soon as the fire authorities release your property for our rapid response.

How SERVPRO Move-Outs Can Restore Fire Damages to the Contents of Your Irwindale Home
SERVPRO thoroughly inspects your items after fire damage to assess what restoration process is best to restore them to preloss condition.
SERVPRO Can Help Restore Your Personal Items after a Fire
Fires in your Irwindale home do not offer warnings or notice to give you a chance to preserve all of the contents of your home. Instead, these items (beyond what you might have been able to carry out on your own in your evacuation) get left to the mercy of the fire that swept through your home. While there are inevitably going to be instances where some items are irreparably damaged or unable to get salvaged, many of these items can get restored successfully in the right environment.
Move-outs by our team are a typical response to help you to restore the contents of your home following significant fire damages in your Irwindale residence. This approach helps us to take more individual care of each of these items while providing our team space and access needed to restore the rest of the damaged house.
When contents of your home get removed for restoration, they get transported to a nearby facility for thorough inspection and detailed cleaning to help prepare them for their return to your house at the completion of the fire restoration to the structure. The process begins with cleaning, which primarily involves various approaches to remove soot damage present in fabrics, materials, and textiles.
Deodorization plays a crucial role in this process as well, allowing for thermal foggers to break apart smoke odor molecules and remove the noxious scent of the fire that has embedded itself into the contents of your home. This process ensures that while restoration occurs at your home, you are not bringing an old symptom back into the affected area for recontamination.
While move-outs might be a small part of the overall restoration process for your home following a fire, it can show our level of dedication and commitment to a thorough and quality job. You can rely on SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina to help you through every challenging aspect of home restoration following a fire, and our emergency response team is available 24/7 by calling (626) 387-4111.

Handle Fire Damage Caused by Grease Fires in Your Irwindale Home Safely
Keeping a clean and safe cooking environment can prevent grease fires in your kitchen.
SERVPRO’s Tips for Preventing and Minimizing Fire Damage in the Kitchen
It is not hard to believe that cooking presents lavish opportunities for mistakes that often lead to household fires. Using too much grease or leaving a pan on the burner too long can ignite causing a fire that gets out of control fast. Before you know it, a small mistake leads to significant repairs in your Irwindale home.
All you have to do to get ahead of fire damage that may occur in your Irwindale property is to contact the expertly trained professionals at SERVPRO. We can help you understand how good habits and a few safety measures can help prevent grease fires altogether. Learning how to react to situations can make a significant difference in the losses you might experience when a fire occurs in your home.
While SERVPRO’s IICRC certified technicians go through extensive training to provide you with quality solutions to fire damage found on your property, our goal is to help you prevent fires through education. The more you learn, the easier it can be to protect your family and household items.
Remember, maintaining a clean, safe cooking environment helps prevent a variety of fires, so keep your stovetop clear of excess grease, oils, or flammable cooking materials. Heating oil for deep-frying or pan-frying requires individual attention, remaining diligent, refraining from being distracted and leaving cooking unattended on your stove.
Always read warning or instruction labels on cooking oil products. Heat ratings help you maintain a proper temperature, avoiding fires and preventing disaster. Using a thermometer, long-utensils, and splash guards can help eliminate fire hazards and injuries. Always wait for the stove to cool off before carefully wiping away oil spills.
If grease catches fire, baking soda, covering the pan with a lid, or using a class “K” fire extinguisher can help get small flames under control. However, you should always remain safe. Avoid putting yourself in harm’s way at all costs and get everyone in your home to safety immediately, then call 911 and your local SERVPRO for help getting things under control.

How Mitigation Helps Hold Down Costs for Fire Damage in Irwindale
For Irwindale Fire & Smoke Damage Cleanup Contact SERVPRO for Rapid Assistance
A Rapid Cleanup Can Reduce Hassles from Smoke & Fire Damaging Effects to Many Properties
SERVPRO uses a strategy of mitigation to prevent as much damage as possible from happening to your home in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. However, while the benefits of this service can be evident in some situations such as storm and flood damage, it may be more difficult to identify how mitigation can help with fire damage in Irwindale. Our fast responses and preventative measures can ultimately save you thousands in restoration costs if done quick enough, by preventing a few calamities from occurring.
Settled Smoke and Particles
Smoke and other microscopic particles, if given a chance, can settle over a period of hours to days in your home, significantly increasing fire damage to your Irwindale residence. Without fast action, these particles can embed themselves deep in your home's walls and floors, requiring longer and more expensive treatments to eliminate. If we arrive in time and do not have more pressing concerns such as structural stability to deal with, we can begin initial cleaning and air filtration processes to reduce the threat of smoke as much as possible. Care and diligence are needed to avoid electrical wiring damaged by the fire.
Attention to Water
A water damage threat accompanies many fires. Sometimes, the water may be the cause of the fire, or problems could develop later (such as after ash clogs a drain or flames melt a PVC pipe). Regardless of the cause or extent of the problem, water requires immediate care by SERVPRO technicians to avoid further damage from chemical compounds and staining liquids.
Once the flames have been quelled, it may be a race against time to secure the building's structural components. While there may be some cases where we cannot prevent collapses from happening, fast evaluation and action by our experts could save hundreds to thousands of dollars on restorations if we get there quick enough. Swiftly demolishing hanging drywall or fixtures can reduce the chances of secondary fire damage.
SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina relies on a time-sensitive mitigation strategy to keep costs and hassle as low as possible for you in the aftermath of a fire. Call us immediately after the disaster at (626) 387-4111.

Charring is Not the Only Aspect of Fire Damage in Irwindale Dwellings
SERVPRO of Azusa/Covina is here to help you and your home recover from a house fire.
Learn How SERVPRO Cleans Up Fire, Smoke, and Soot From Your Irwindale Home
House fires can cause many problems for a family. Several of these issues can continue long after Irwindale firefighters leave the scene. Cleaning up and restoring your home often requires professional technicians with specialized skills.
Irwindale residents who choose professional mitigation of fire damage find a resolution for their situation very quickly. At SERVPRO, we know that many of the items destroyed by a fire hold sentimental value to the occupants. Many of the items that would have been unrecoverable can now receive specialized care that restores it completely.
Now, instead of replacing everything lost in a fire, special cleaning units can restore almost anything. We can box everything up, transport it to our facility, restore each item, and then return everything to you. Larger items, such as upholstered furniture, can remain at your home while our Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician (UFT) restores them, or if you prefer, accompany your other items.
Your personal belongings do not burn without affecting the interior of your home. Even if your home's structure does not catch on fire, smoke and the subsequent soot become deposited almost everywhere. Soot can carry carcinogens, trigger breathing difficulties, and also become a mess whenever touched or otherwise disturbed. Because it settles on everything, cleaning can seem to spread soot more than eliminate it from your home and belongings. Our SERVPRO Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) have extensive experience and can perform this work efficiently so you can relax instead of worry.
For more extensive fires, gutting a home can be the only option. New floor plans can often be realized, and make your home seem like a brand new one at the same time. Working closely with other professionals in restoring your home to you, we strive to make it “Like it never even happened.”
Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Covina Fire Damage Restorations are Backed by Rigorous Training
You can trust the highly trained and certified technicians at SERVPRO for all your restoration needs.
SERVPRO technicians are certified and prepared for every job
One of the largest issues in the damage repair and restoration industry is uncertified contractors taking on projects they are not qualified to handle. Every year, thousands of homeowners fall victim to predatory companies that lack the equipment and training to handle damages properly. At SERVPRO, however, our technicians undergo a rigorous training regimen to prepare them for anything and everything related to fire damage in Covina. Here are just a few of the IICRC certifications our technicians carry with them to your home.
FSRT (Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician)
The most important certification for any technician sent out to our Covina fire damage restoration projects is the FSRT. This certification ensures that technicians understand the equipment, planning methods, cleaning techniques, and safety procedures related to fire restoration work. Also, this course also teaches some amount of odor control, although there is an entirely separate certification for that task.
OCT (Odor Control Technician)
The longest-lasting and the least-visible element of most fires is smoke residue. Smoke particles are microscopic and can easily embed themselves in wood, fabric, wallpaper, drywall, and other materials around your home. This course teaches our technicians how to remove smoke and other odors quickly and efficiently using the advanced technology at our disposal.
Employee Certification Training
Most SERVPRO technicians also undergo our in-house Employee Certification Training, which consists of numerous modules to help better train and inform our technicians in their line of work. This training is standardized across hundreds of SERVPRO locations nationwide, allowing for a high and shared standard to be established for every individual going through the training.
Training does not stop at certifications for our employees. Even after they have gone through many classes and weeks of training, technicians still have room to learn in the field. We pair up veteran employees and newer charges to make sure that every job has the experience it needs and less-experienced technicians gain knowledge quickly.
SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina brings the training, equipment, and quality of service to your home that no one else can. For our restoration and repair services, give us a call at (626) 387-4111.

Toaster Fire Damage in Your Azusa Home
Unfortunately, toaster fires happen quickly and more often than you think. Contact SERVPRO for remediation and for tips to prevent home fires.
Checking to Make Sure That Your Appliances are Damage Free is Key to Fire Prevention
Many people start their day with their morning toast. The standard two or four slice toaster remains a staple in kitchens, but the safety of it has been under question. Toasters cause many fires each year and untold amounts of property damage. The danger appears in many forms, and it makes you think twice about using a toaster in your own home.
There are things to consider so you can avoid fire and fire damage from using a toaster in your Azusa home. First, do not neglect the power cord, as it performs an important function. Not only does it transfer power to the appliance from the wall socket so it can work properly, but it contains the wires which hold this power safely. When the cord gets melted, the protection is compromised, and a lot can happen, including a fire. Crimped, melted, or damaged cords should alert you that the appliance is unsafe to use. Damaged cords may cause fires even when the appliance is not in use, so you should no longer use it.
If your toaster cord has caused a fire, SERVPRO, professional remediation specialists, can be to your home quickly to assist you in repairing and cleaning your home. Our technicians have been thoroughly trained and can have your home back to its preloss condition.
Even the best housekeeper does not empty their toaster every day. Crumbs that are sitting down in the elements are a potential fire hazard. These dry bread crumbs are thought to be fuel for a fire. Combine them with how close the hot element is, they can smoke or even flame. Your toaster must be kept free of debris and crumbs, so it continues to work at its best and safest.
Some toaster fires are caused by people, the toast being buttered before it is placed in the toaster. When this is done, the butter drips onto the hot element. The greasy juice creates a flare up, which is why you should always toast and then put the butter on the hot toast.
Accidents can quickly happen even when you are careful with your toaster, so contact us at SERVPRO if your toaster starts a fire in your home. We understand that the quicker the damage, soot and smoke get cleaned up, the less damage your home sustains.
SERVPRO of Azusa/Covina is standing by always to assist you when you have had a fire at your home. We are easily reached by dialing (626) 387-4111, so do not hesitate to call us when you are in need.
