Fire Damage Recipe for Disaster:  Dirty Ovens in Your Northfield Home Clean your oven at least twice per year to reduce the chance of fire.

Not Cleaning Your Oven Regularly Can Lead to Fire Damage in Your Northfield Home

It is not uncommon for life to take over and to become too busy to address the "spring cleaning" inside your home, but when it comes to your oven, this can lead to fire damage. Most experts recommend that you clean your oven at least twice a year. Leaving grease or food particles behind for extended periods of time can create a hazardous environment that is ideal for a fire to start in. However, sometimes accidents occur and, when they do, it is essential for you to have professionals close by to contact for help.  

Once you extinguish the blaze, it is imperative for you to call fire damage remediation services to your Northfield home, as this type of damage is time sensitive. The longer that soot particles remain inside your kitchen, the higher of a chance they can have to cause permanent discoloration to your belongings. The quicker that help can arrive at your home, the more likely it is that your kitchen can be smoothly restored to its preloss state.  

When you get in touch with SERVPRO, we aim to arrive at your house as swiftly as possible, regardless of the time. Day or night, we can promptly travel to your home with all of the necessary equipment to begin the remediation.  

The first SERVPRO employee to arrive at your home can be our Estimator. Their job is to investigate the damage and answer any questions that you may have, as well as explain a likely solution. After our Estimator, our team of IICRC-certified techs can arrive and begin setting up our equipment.  

SERVPRO uses advanced techniques to tackle fire damage, usually choosing one of three cleaning methods: abrasive, lubricative, or chemical. A common way to clean soot and grime away from the various surfaces inside your kitchen is the 'wet and wipe' method. In addition to cleaning, our technicians aim to remove any reminders that the fire damage even happened in the first place, such as scent. SERVPRO can use equipment, such as thermal foggers, to neutralize the very particles that cause the foul odor that fire produces.  

If a small kitchen fire breaks out in your house, always call for help. Dial (507) 334-2565 to reach out to SERVPRO of Cannon Valley. Our ultimate goal is always to make you feel "Like it never even happened."
