Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Practice Proper Fire Safety this Winter!

12/21/2021 (Permalink)

I was roasting a marshmallow and I blinked.

Every year, folks in the Northern Hemisphere face a perennial problem: cold can be quite dangerous, causing frostbite, hypothermia, and that thing where your extremities just shrivel up a bit and go numb and you can’t move them really fast until you warm em up. All are equally horrific and dangerous to the health and safety of your family. However, we face another arguably worse problem: fire is dangerous. I don’t wish to go into all the horrors fire has wrecked upon our civilization, but let’s just say Alexandria doesn’t have any good reading material anymore.

But there’s good news too! Fire may be the most powerful tool in your arsenal for staying warm this winter, but it doesn’t have to be the most dangerous. If you practice fire safety, you can avoid calling SERVPRO of Burlington to come help you cleanup and restore your fire damage (but we’ll still be there for you if something goes wrong)!

If you’ve got a fire going in your home, whether it’s a candle or a fireplace or a gas stove, you can’t be lax with your attention. Remember to always keep an eye on the fires you start and don’t leave them unattended until you’re certain the fire is completely out. Also, you might want to familiarize yourself with where the fire extinguishers are in your home, and if you don’t have any, get one. You probably won’t ever need to use it, but you’ll be happy to have it if you ever do.

And if all else fails, you can always call SERVPRO of Burlington NC at (336) 229-1156 and we can help clean and restore your fire damage!
