We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Carol Stream After A Fire Emergency
SERVPRO Handles Fire Damage from Exhaust Fan in Carol Stream Bathroom
When considering types of damage that can occur in a home, the bathroom is probably a place that would bring to mind damage from water, but it is also an area of the house that receives fire damage frequently. One of the most common causes is due to high wattage hair care appliances overheating a plug or the home exhaust fan sparking a fire.
Our SERVPRO emergency response team answered a call from a homeowner in Carol Stream to assist with fire damage. The fire emanated from an exhaust fan that overheated and sparked a fire in the only bathroom in the small home. Because of the small square footage of the property, light smoke permeated most of the house.
The sheetrock around the exhaust fan in the ceiling of the bathroom was charred and required removal using controlled demolition techniques. Our technicians used handheld vacuums to pick up the debris and soot in the bathroom. Since a fire extinguisher instead of water put out the small fire in the ceiling, the only the powdery residue left behind on surfaces needed cleaning.
With the majority of the smoke damage concentrated in the bathroom, our technicians restored the rest of the property, which only received light smoke, using our professional cleaning formulas and proprietary techniques. This enabled the mitigation efforts to disrupt the home as little as possible and keep the contents on-site without the need for pack-out.
To neutralize the remaining odors, we used an air scrubber with HEPA filtration to capture airborne particles. Then followed up with thermal fogging to remove any residual embedded smoke odors in porous items and fabrics as it behaves as smoke does during a fire and when hot air expands and drives soot into cracks and crevices, thermal fogging eradicates those odor-causing particulates.
