Fire Damage How an Unattended Stove Can Cause Fire Damage in Daytona Beach  Leaving food unattended while cooking can cause fires.

Leaving Your Stove Unattended Can Cause Fire Damage in Your Daytona Beach Home

Some recipes require that the food cook for an extended length of time; however, leaving your stove unattended could lead to fire damage happening inside of your kitchen. You should never leave your home, work in the yard, or occupy another floor of your home while something is cooking inside of your kitchen. While leaving food for a few minutes most likely won't lead to any problems, leaving it alone for hours leaves entirely too much space for an accident to happen while you are not around to address it.  

While it is always best to try and prevent accidents from happening, they can occur despite your best efforts, such as the fire damage inside of your Daytona Beach kitchen. It is essential to call for help as soon as possible after extinguishing the kitchen fire. Getting professionals inside of your home can ensure remediation of the damage left behind. The longer that you wait to address fire damage, the more difficult it becomes to remediate it smoothly.  

When you get in touch with SERVPRO, our technicians can rush to your home within hours of your initial call. The fire broke out from your stovetop and foodstuffs has been burned onto the surface of your countertops and the stove itself. While the fire in your kitchen was not significant, and you managed to put it out swiftly, it still left behind a foul smell and stains on your countertops. However, SERVPRO has the necessary tools to address these problems.  

Our technicians can use a chemical cleaning solution to break up the grime and soot that attached itself to your stove and your countertops. Sometimes, abrasive scrubbing methods must be used to remove soot left behind by a fire, but SERVPRO always tries the gentlest method first.  

When it comes to the foul odor in the air, SERVPRO can set up a couple of different devices in your home, depending on the severity of the fire and if your family relocated to a temporary location. Because the fire in your home was small, as most are, our techs can use a thermal fogger or an air scrubber to remove the malodor from the air.  

When a fire occurs inside of your home, always get help as soon as possible. Get in contact with SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange by calling (386) 788-0358. Day or night, we're open to helping you.
