Electrical Fire is probably the most common reason for fire damage. It may start from old wiring or faulty appliances; however, the results can be devastating.

While it is known to never overload the power outlets, some people are not well-aware of other electrical dangers. Some of the potential electrical hazards include:
An average electrical system is not likely to last for more than years. Therefore, if your system is older, it is highly recommended you get it checked regularly to prevent any fire hazard.
One of the common reasons for electrical fires involves plugging old appliances into faulty outlets. In such cases, the power demand of the appliances can’t be fulfilled, thereby resulting in a fused outlet.
Extension cords are meant to make our lives easier; however, their overuse can be dangerous. The overheating might even spark a fire.
Lighting fixtures are one of the major causes of an electrical fire. Installing a light bulb with a higher wattage demand than the light fixture can handle results in overheating and melting of wires that can lead to severe fire risks.

If there is any fault, it is repaired at the earliest.
Experts inspect curtains, furniture, appliances, carpet, and other objects present on the affected site. After the inspection, the team informs you of the amount of loss. They also tell you about the estimated service costs and the expected time for the entire restoration process to end. Amid all this, our workers determine the things that need repair and cleanup. The team also inspects the windows and doors; without inspection and assessment, we can’t proceed further.
The whole process includes many steps. Upon confirming the appointment, we send a group of specialists to your site, where they inspect the location and property. If the team finds it necessary, board-up and roof tarp setup can be arranged on the site.
During this step, the team also examines electric connections and sewerage lines. Experts also separate the repairable items and discard the useless ones.
Following the next step, the workers work to clean the property covered with soot and smoke. This step also includes the cleaning of the carpet, curtains, walls, floor, and ceiling. Modern equipment is used to remove soot and debris deposited on the surface of textile items, home décor, and furniture.
To remove odor from the location, each object is deodorized. Special sanitizers are also used to make the place germ-free. Workers do minor reconstruction as well, like filling the holes in the walls, fixing doors and windows, etc. Once completed, the client is asked to explore the site again for satisfaction.
Fire damage can cause you to panic, but there’s nothing to worry about. Firstly, call us to help you get things in order. Then until our team reaches your place, the following tips will help you manage the disastrous situation in a better way.
Avoid walking unnecessarily to prevent the spread of soot particles. Cover electronic and undamaged items with a piece of cloth so that they remain safe from soot.
Don’t try to fix a faulty electric circuit or gas pipeline. Also, stay away from cracked ceilings or walls. Avoid consuming food items affected by smoke or soot. Also, avoid using electric switches for charging the phones or for any other purpose.
Moreover, avoid using laundry items affected by smoke or soot. In the aftermath of extinguishing the fire, your property is most likely to be flooded with water.
