Fire Damage How To Recover From A Fire Caused By Your Space Heater In Your Plantation Home Should a fire break out in your home, large or small, it is never wise to delay in action.

The Space Heater Inside Your Plantation Home Can Cause Fire Damage

Fall is here, and you might be tempted to take out your space heater on a chilly morning, but leaving it unattended can cause fire damage inside of your home. While you go to make your morning coffee, you leave the heater on full blast in the living room. However, it was placed too close to the curtains and on top of carpet. While you're in the kitchen, the drapes catch fire and so does the carpeting.

When you smell the smoke and notice that fire damage is occurring inside your Plantation home, you rush to put it out with the extinguisher inside of your home. Despite the short amount of time that the fire was ablaze, it still managed to produce a lot of smoke around your drapes and carpet, causing soot stains on both. While the fire was relatively small, the wisest decision you can make is to call for professional help to assist with the stains left behind.

At SERVPRO, when we receive your call, we always strive to travel to your residence swiftly. We understand how valuable time is in the removal of stains left behind by a fire. The more time that your curtains and carpet have to sit, the tougher the stains can become to remove.

When we arrive at your home, we can start our investigation immediately and select the best method of stain removal for the delicate nature of your drapes and carpet. Our IICRC-certified techs can spread an absorbent powder overtop the stains left behind by the fire damage.

Absorbent powders are a delicate way to tackle soot stains left behind, as they clean by drawing the soil and dirt into the powder. Sometimes the powder can be mixed with a solvent and applied as a paste and left to dry. Afterward, SERVPRO can then use a vacuum to pull the powder and the stain away from your drapes and carpet.

Finally, if an odor remains behind, SERVPRO can use a thermal fogger to neutralize the particles in the air. Our goal is to leave your home feeling like it did in its pre-fire state.

Should a fire break out in your home, large or small, it is never wise to delay in action. Reach out to SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South by dialing the phone number (954) 776-2000.
