These restoration professionals adhere to the standards established by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to ensure that homes are clean and safe once more after a disaster.
Lowering Kitchen Fire Damage Risk
- Install the smoke detector near the kitchen.Your smoke detector can go off when there is too much smoke or steam from day-to-day cooking. However, in a kitchen fire, smoke spreads quickly enough that your alarm can activate in a timely fashion.
- Unplug appliances when not in use.Devices turned off still draw electricity when plugged in. It takes faulty wiring, an overheated thermostat, or a damaged cable to spark a fire in your kitchen.
- Keep the stove clean.One of the most common ways a kitchen fire can start is igniting food particles on or in your stovetop. The cleaner your kitchen, the fewer fire risks there are.
SERVPRO’s Odor Control Tools
SERVPRO professionals use a variety of odor control tools to combat kitchen fire-related smells, including:
- Trays of scented granules placed near vents spread pleasant odors through the home
- Thermal foggers designed to penetrate surfaces with deodorizing solutions the same way that smoke does during a fire
- Manual cleaning with alkaline cleaners, enzyme digesters, and EPA-registered antimicrobials addresses many of the odors caused by charring, microbes, and protein residues
