SERVPRO's Offers Fire Restoration Services in Lake City

Now that the temperatures are dropping, people in Seattle will start turning up their heaters to heat their homes and stay warm at night. Some people choose to use a fireplace to heat their house during, especially chilly evenings. Throughout the winter, there is nothing better than snuggling up next to a hot wood fire. However, fireplaces can prove to be the source of several structural blazes.

When we conduct fire restoration in Lake City, our SERVPRO technicians find that fireplaces and kitchen fires are the two most common culprits. Before using your fireplace in the fall every year, it is wise to have your chimneys clean. The soot sitting in your chimney during the summertime could cause flames to ignite when you utilize the fireplace for the first time in the fall. Once flames ignite inside your chimney, they could consume your building materials around it, causing the blaze to spread. Since heat rises, the fire could damage your roof and ceiling.

If you notice that a fire broke out in your chimney, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO. Even if the blaze is small, there is still a chance smoke could have caused problems in other places in your building. Our technicians can help you bring your structure to its preloss state by conducting the following:

  • Repair Fire Damaged Homes
  • Water & Fire Damage Restorations
  • Fire Clean Up
  • Smoke Remediation
  • Fire and Smoke Damage Repair

Once the fire gets extinguished, we can then arrive at your property and conduct a full inspection of your building. We start at the source, and then we can perform a wipe test to check for soot residues on surfaces in your home.

If you ever have a structural blaze started by a fireplace mishap, call SERVPRO of Seattle Northeast at (206) 362-9295.
