Fire and Smoke
 
S. Allen & Sons DKI can restore a fire damaged structure to its original pre-loss condition.
 
A fire can be a traumatic experience to any home or business owner. Not only is there the inherent danger of the flames as they destroy a home or facility, but there are also the after-effects of soot, debris, odor, smoke and structural damage. For most, a fire is an unimaginable event, yet it occurs from a variety of causes.

Be mindful of the top 5 causes of fires:

  • 1. Cooking Fire: Splattering grease, unattended kitchens and combustibles near heat sources are all common fire instigators.
  • 2. Home Heating Fires: Have your furnace inspected regularly and keep portable heaters safely away from combustibles.
  • 3. Smoking: If you smoke in or near the house, always make sure the cigarette butt is fully put out.
  • 4. Electrical Fires: Watch for frayed cords, overuse of extension cords and overloaded outlets.
  • 5. Candles: Never leave lit candles unattended.
