Grease Fires Can Lead to Water Damage

Water Damage caused by Fire

Grease fires happen in a blink of an eye and if not responded to quickly can burn down your home. SERVPRO of Rexburg/Rigby responded to a request to help restore an apartment after a grease fire had done its damage. Thankfully the apartment had a fire suppression system and the tenant was able to get the fire out relatively fast. The bulk of the damage wasn’t caused by the fire and smoke. It was caused by the sprinkler that helped to put the fire out.

Hundreds of gallons of water had covered the kitchen, part of the living room, and everything in it. Our first priority was to extract the water and dry everything effected before secondary damage occurs. Second damage can happen a number of ways, but some common areas can be warped cabinets or floors.

That results from having the water saturate the material causing it warp as its dried out. If you experience any type fire, water, or mold damage let SERVPRO put its experience to work for you. We can minimize secondary damage and help you get your property back to normal.
