Fire Damage From Damaged Electrical Cords

Electrical cords which have been damaged in your Glendale home can cause devastating fires. There are some things you can keep in mind to protect yourself from this happening, such as regularly inspecting any cords for damage, and replacing them right away. Try and keep cords from high-traffic areas, so they do not sustain damage and don’t have them somewhere you or your family members can trip over them.

Fires and fire damage from frayed and damaged electrical cords is something that needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible. Your Glendale home may have other types of damage such as some and soot, plus water from firefighting efforts. SERVPRO has the training and the tools to assist you in fixing and cleaning up all kinds of damage.

Not all fires create the same damage levels, nor do all fires need the same restoration procedures. When the fire damage is minor, smoke residues affect just specific areas or rooms. There is light to moderate residues from smoke, and our restoration processes could include dry and wet cleaning of walls, ceilings, contents, and floors. Not many areas need to be repainted, and only a few items should need replacement.

When SERVPRO staff find damage which is medium, there are moderate smoke residues, and more items need wet cleaning to dislodge residues. We also see an increase in how many items require replacement and how many areas need repainting. We may need to refinish floors, and damage from heat to cabinets, drywall, cause additional materials to be replaced. Smoke odors are noticeable and may require additional deodorization after we finish cleaning.

When it comes to significant fire damage, heat and fire damage is more severe closest to the fire’s source. Structural finishes and framing can be charred, making structure repairs needed. Smoke residues are spread throughout a big portion of your home, and the odors are strong. We need to employ emergency services such as boarding up your home, creating a source of electricity and getting rid of charred and smoke-filled debris. Our restoration process involves extensive cleaning of your home and possibly require us to pack and move out any contents which are salvageable for cleaning off-site. We likely need to use multiple methods of deodorization as well.

SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale take the time to thoroughly clean and repair your home in Highland Park, Atwater Village, or Eagle Rock after fire damage. Just call us as soon as possible at (818) 244-6005 after a fire so we can help restore your property.
