An accident that leads to fire damage in your home can feel like an absolute disaster. You may read this and think, "I'm too careful about that. I wouldn't let something catch on fire in my house." Many people have thought the same in the past, and fire damage has still impacted their homes.

The truth is that your St. Petersburg home could suffer fire damage from more sources than just a candle left unattended. The U.S. Fire Administration states that open flames, such as candles, cause only 4.6% of residential fires. However, cooking accounts for 51.6% of fires, and heating accounts for 9.1%. That leaves a lot of potential sources for fire damage inside of your home. You may still think that you would never cause a fire while cooking, but there are so many circumstances at play that could cause a fire to get out of hand under your supervision.

So, what should you do if a fire does break out on your property? Let's stick to cooking for this scenario. We can say that a grease fire began after frying some bacon. Before you managed to smother it and put it out, it caused some minor soot damage to the hood of your stove, blackening the shining silver metal. Standard cleaning methods are not dealing with the greasy mess left behind by the fire as they should, and you have found yourself at a bit of a loss.

In this situation, you should reach out for professional fire damage remediation services. You may think that it is not that big of a mess and doesn't warrant such a call, but here at SERVPRO, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
