House Fires - More Common Than You Think
According to Red Cross, 40 percent of people living in America believe that they are more likely to win the lottery or get struck by lightning than they are to experience a house fire. Unfortunately, the Red Cross reports that more than $7 BILLION in property damage occurs from home fires every year and more than 30 people suffer injuries related to house fires every single day. At SERVPRO of West Hartford, we know the aftermath can cause damage throughout the entire home, both seen and unseen. Often times even the rooms that were not directly affected by the flames of the fire can sustain extreme damage. Intense heat can melt plastic, stress glass panes to the point of shattering, clothes and fabric furniture can absorb the soot and smoke, and equipment may no longer be safe because of a compromised electrical system.
SERVPRO of West Hartford has seen it all; a small kitchen fire, an electrical fire, a dryer fire, a fireplace or chimney fire, or even a puff back - when the oil burner backfires and fills your home with soot and smoke. Almost 100% of the times, these events are sudden, unexpected, and traumatic.
