stove that caused a kitchen fire Stove Fire in Anderson, SC

At SERVPRO of Anderson, the most common cause of house fires is caused by a stovetop/oven. Thankfully, these fires tend to not extend much further than the kitchen in the cases we have seen, but soot and smoke damage can cause damage throughout the entire house. As can be seen in the photo, this fire was contained to the stove and countertop, causing little damage that needed demolition work. However, the smoke and soot reached even the second story of the home, traveling through the HVAC and duct work.

Preventing Water Damage This Summer

4/23/2021 (Permalink)

With summer right around the corner, SERVPRO of Anderson is beginning to prepare for the water damage that these storms may bring to the community around us. While we prepare our production crew and equipment to help mitigate storm damage, you could be preparing your home or business to help prevent any damage at all! The first thing you can do to prep your home for the impending summer weather is to clean out your gutters. Even though this is a dreaded summer chore for all of us, it can actually save you a lot of grief in the long run. Next, check those appliances that you rely on so heavily during those long hot days. Your air conditioning unit creates a good amount of condensation during the summer, so make sure you tend to your units regularly and that there are no clogs. Some A/C units are found in the attic, which can cause unnoticed significant water damage and the potential of microbial growth due to the warmness of the attic. Maintaining these few things can help keep your home or business safe from any summer storm damage these next few months! If the summer rains do cause damage on your home, not to worry, we are prepared too and can be out to help in no time. Call us at SERVPRO of Anderson at (864)-224-0285.
