Mitigating Cooking Appliance Fire Damage In An Amherst Kitchen
Thrifting is a budget-friendly way to stock your kitchen with durable appliances, but sometimes those appliances end up not working as well as you might like. A vintage electric waffle iron can end up sparking and catching fire when plugged into an ungrounded kitchen outlet. Worse still, the resulting high heat and fire damage can cause leftover plastic takeout containers to melt in your overhead cabinets. Between cleaning up soot, heat damage, melted plastic, burnt waffle batter, and the foul odor from your now-singed waffle iron, it can be overwhelming to consider where to even start with the cleanup.
If your latest thrift shop find ends up causing fire damage in your Amherst home, SERVPRO technicians can ensure that your kitchen is restored to its pre-existing condition. “Like it never even happened.” After our professionals come to your home to assess the extent of damage to your kitchen, we can get right to eliminating the sources of odor from both dry and wet smoke.
The first step to eliminating foul odors from fire is to thoroughly clean residues from the fire, whether they be soot, burnt food particles, or melted materials. Our SERVPRO team can also clean the vents in your kitchen with agitating tools such as brushes and augers so soot and other odor-causing materials can be vacuumed up and thrown away. The thoroughness of this cleanup processes both on surfaces and inside cabinets also helps to minimize staining as well as control odors.
Deodorizing can be accomplished with a variety of equipment. One method that is favored for effective odor mitigation is thermal fogging, which releases a solvent-based smoke that binds with particles to eliminate odor through chemical reactions. Air scrubbers equipped with HEPA filters can catch particles as small as 0.3 microns that have settled on surfaces in your kitchen.
