BQ Gone Wrong -- Fire Damage In Colorado Springs
SERVPRO Restores Smoke & Fire Mishaps
Many homeowners are expanding their home’s footprint with outdoor grills and even complete kitchens. The addition of a roof, arbors, and partial walls make these outdoor areas comfortable and inviting. Unfortunately, their wood construction also adds to the risk of a disastrous ending to a delicious meal. You need professional assistance when a pleasant Colorado Springs evening outdoors results in a fire.
Your outdoor cooking area is a relaxing space, conducive to fun meals with friends and family. Just like other food preparation areas, however, the possibility of a blaze is constant, particularly if you get distracted while grilling. The chance of fire damage if your Colorado Springs backyard has a pizza oven or fire pit is heightened even more. The heat generated from these wood or gas burning appliances alone can cause nearby siding or eaves to catch fire, and decor like candles or torches can set areas ablaze.
Outdoor fire damage does not necessarily stop at the exterior walls of your home. The fire can spread into interior areas quickly, burning through any portion of your home used as part of the perimeter of the outdoor cooking area. Even if the flames are stopped outside, smoke and soot are likely to move through your home. Doors and windows are open to facilitate the movement of food from the kitchen to the grilling area, but also provide a conduit for smoke and soot, and in extreme situations, flames to enter. SERVPRO assesses the damage done by the fire in all areas of your home, inside and out, and develops a plan to remediate every aspect of it.
All SERVPRO crew members attain the designation as Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians through IICRC approved training sessions. Our employees use the industry’s best practices to deliver high-quality restoration services, cleaning up soot on surfaces with appropriate tools and cleaning products developed to match the characteristics of the damage done to your home. A light covering of soot responds well to vacuuming and dry sponging, while sticky, greasy residues may need solvents and abrasive scrubbers. Charred areas may need scraping and sealing, or occasionally removal and replacement, but our focus is always on restoration as much as is possible.
A final concern after fire damage restoration is often odor control. SERVPRO deodorization specialists receive comprehensive training in odor elimination. We work hard to eliminate the causation of the odor, addressing each level until the odor disappears. We are certified to operate thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators to attack odor particles at their most minute and persistent.
