One of the best ways to prevent a fire in your home or commercial space is by knowing the likely causes. Some of the most common sources of house fires are from cooking, heating, electrical, smoking, and candles. The National Fire Protection Agency has a list of tips on how to prevent the common causes listed above. Another possible cause of a house fire could be from fireworks or space heaters. It’s important to be careful when dealing with any potential source of fire. In the event of a fire in a house or commercial space the owner of the property should call a water and fire restoration company like Disaster Master to mitigate the fire and smoke damage.
Recently in Lincoln City, Oregon there was a house that caught on fire due to fireworks being lit and exploding too close to the house. The homeowner called Disaster Master right away to help mitigate the fire and smoke damage. Disaster Master went straight to work by removing all damaged contents from inside and outside of the home. All salvaged contents were removed, cleaned and stored for the time it will take to rebuild the house. Next, the kitchen needed cabinets, ceiling and walls to be removed. The living room needed the drywall and the ceilings removed as well as the laminate flooring. The upstairs bedrooms also needed the drywall removed as well as the carpet, pad and tack strip. All horizontal and vertical surfaces were HEPA vacuumed. Since most of the house was demoed down to the studs there was not the need to wipe the walls down and encapsulate the surfaces because they were removed and disposed of. The homeowner was very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because it helped save him time and money.
