Cleaning Up Box Fan Fire Damage In An Augusta Home

As the Georgia summer draws ever closer, the weather is turning balmy and, while pleasant, it may be time to start breaking out fans to stay cool on warm, sunny days. When your trusty old box fan overheats and catches fire in your living room, however, it can leave you with more to worry about than just keeping your home from heating up during the summer.

If an overheated box fan has caused fire damage in your Augusta residence, certified SERVPRO technicians stand ready to assist you. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, and strive to restore your home to its preloss condition. Both SERVPRO employees and franchise owners undertake extensive training and educational programs that cover fire and water damage restoration, as well as carpet and upholstery cleaning. These programs ensure that every SERVPRO technician and franchise owner knows the ins and outs of all kinds of residential and commercial disasters and how to mitigate damage from them.

When SERVPRO technicians come to assess the damage, the first step is to clean up soot and residues left over from the fire. When electronic appliances burn, the plastics and rubbers can melt and create hard-to-clean stains that require thorough scrubbing with EPA-registered cleaners to eliminate.

After cleaning, our team can use an Ultra Low Volume wet fogger to deodorize your living space. This piece of equipment emits a mist of deodorant particles that are 8 to 15 microns in size to penetrate areas affected by odor-causing residues. Hand pump sprayers can directly deodorize porous surfaces with deodorizing chemicals emitted at 50 psi. This approach is useful for spots of carpet that were particularly charred by fire.

SERVPRO of Augusta South / Burke & Wilkes Counties is available for disaster cleanup 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you need our services to clean up after disaster strikes in your home, give us a call today at (706) 843-1990, and we can ensure that home is restored. “Like it never even happened.”
