How Small Appliances Cause Fire Damage in Naples
Repairing Fire Damage After a Naples Appliance Malfunction
Electrical appliances of all kinds are a part of everyday life, and we expect our devices to work reliably. However, a malfunctioning power cord on your blow dryer can cause more than potentially singed hair: it can leave fire damage and strong odors in your bathroom that can be tough to eliminate on your own.
When an appliance malfunction leads to fire damage in your Naples home, certified SERVPRO technicians are available to assist you 24/7. Our focus on restoration over replacement means that our team is committed to mitigating damage and bringing your bathroom back to its pre-fire condition. Fire travels quickly, so we can also evaluate and clean other areas of your home that have been affected by smoke and soot.
The first step after determining the type of smoke and soot damage is cleaning surfaces that have been affected by it. Porous surfaces such as bathroom wallpaper can be more challenging to clean due to their ability to absorb smoke particles and odors, especially if the bathroom was steamy after a hot shower during the initial fire. We then clean bathroom vents filled with smoke or odor causing particles. Items in our arsenal for cleaning vents include a vacuum and filter system to pull contaminants from smoke out of HVAC systems, as well as agitating tools to coax out hard-to-reach dirt.
Our SERVPRO technicians handle odor control with a variety of tools, including HEPA air scrubbers, to cleanse the air of foul odors. The HEPA filters on air scrubbers, made with activated carbon and potassium permanganate, can capture particles as small as .3 microns, significantly smaller than what the human eye can easily perceive. Once odor-causing particles are sucked up and taken through the HEPA filters, it is cycled back out as clean, air. In cases where one technique alone cannot eliminate air, multiple methods of odor elimination may be used, such as portable ozone machines.
