Electrical Fire and Fire Damage in Your Farmington Home

2/19/2018 (Permalink)

An overloaded outlet can cause an electrical fire to spark in your home, leaving you in need of professional restoration services.

SERVPRO Restores Your Home to its Pre-Loss Condition 

Electrical fires can occur anytime in Farmington, and many times are the result of outdated wiring, faulty outlets, or an electrical strip with too many appliances plugged into it. To lower your risk of dealing with an electrical fire, make sure all electrical outlets, wiring, and cords in your home are up-to-date, not damaged or broken, or running under an appliance or rug which can cause the wires to overheat. Make sure extension cords, space heaters, and light fixtures work correctly and do not have exposed or frayed wiring.

If you do experience an electrical fire in your Farmington home, you are likely dealing with more than fire damage, but also soot, smoke, and water damage as well. With all that you are looking at, you need professional help from fire remediation damage specialists such as our team at SERVPRO. We can arrive quickly to your home with the right tools and all the necessary training.

Our job as the fire damage restorer is to return your home to what is referred to as preloss condition. Your home has been damaged by fire and smoke, and our task is to restore it to the way it was before the fire. Cleaning to a preloss condition means removing the effects of the damage from the fire. Residues give off smoke odors most times, so we must also deodorize to get rid of the malodors now in your home.

The fire may have damaged parts of your structure so severely that they cannot be returned to their original condition, so we have to dispose of and replace these parts which are charred by flames or blistered by heat. These items can include the framework including ceilings, walls, floors, doors, attached floor coverings, and windows. Other items known as structural components include your cooling and heating system, cabinets, light fixtures, and bath fixtures.

We must determine what items can be restored and what has to be replaced. SERVPRO identifies for you and your insurance company any conditions which likely existed before the fire as well.

SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville wants to get your home in Orchard Garden, Farmington, or Burnsville back to its usual condition before the loss, which is why we work to do a thorough job of restoring and cleaning your home. After a fire, get in touch with us right away at (952) 846-4400, so we can prevent further damage from happening.
