Frying Foods Can Be Hazardous

6/8/2021 (Permalink)

Fry Pan Frying foods in hot grease require attention and no distractions to avoid a grease fire.

Unexpected events during the cooking of meals sometimes can draw the chef away, with catastrophic results. If a grease fire brings your day to a standstill, SERVPRO is ready to take charge of a seamless restoration.
 
Frying food needs attention without interruptions. But if you are distracted the meat sizzles, and grease ignites. As you rush back, you are greeted with a stovetop in flames. A chemical fire extinguisher snuffs the blaze, but the greasy smoke and soot already coats every surface in the kitchen and floats throughout the house. Call us before you intensify the situation because grease fire damage in your home requires a professional cleanup.
 
Our SERVPRO crew arrives at your grease fire with years of experience and training in abating this type of disaster. We have the equipment, tools, and know-how to restore your home “Like it never even happened.” The crew chief assesses the damage, and the team gets to work. Burned cooking vessels and their contents go in a disposal bag. We evaluate the soot coating the surfaces to determine if it wipes away with one of our spray cleaners or if abrasive techniques must be used carefully. Then the work begins.
 
We know how smoke and soot move during a fire, and how chemicals used to extinguish it impact the cleanup. We will inspect for hidden damage in cabinets, on window coverings, and in areas far from the fire, as ash and soot float freely. Window blinds receive an immersion cleaning; curtains bundle up and take for professional cleaning. Hard, nonporous surfaces scrub clean, upholstery and carpeting undergo deep vacuuming unless the soot is too sticky. Walls and ceilings need cleaning following the proper protocol our techs learned in industry approved certification courses.
 
Odors may linger, and our team works with you and your perception of smoky smells to eliminate this final evidence that a grease fire occurred. Professional deodorizing sprays can take care of the problem, but we also offer thermal fogging in persistent cases, the deodorizing compound combusting in a heated chamber that recreates the fire conditions, the better to neutralize the smell.
 
SERVPRO of Baxter, Boone, Fulton & Marion Counties is familiar with efficient grease fire damage restoration, ready to transform a sooty mess back to your kitchen fast. Call (866) 445-8457 to have a crew of recovery experts scheduled to abate smoke, soot, charring and other harm at your home.
