Light Fixture Causes Electrical Fire In Greenville Home

The second leading cause of electrical fires is light fixtures. Unfortunately, that's what caused this fire in this kitchen. Luckily the homeowners' quick thinking and a fire extinguisher kept the flames from reaching other areas of their home. The homeowners realized they would need help getting their kitchen back to preloss condition. After consulting with their insurance agent, they called SERVPRO of South Greenville County.

We arrived on-site and assessed the damage. Our technicians noticed that the house had a lingering smoke smell, but most of the damage was in the kitchen. The fire extinguisher also left a fine powdery residue. Our techs set an air scrubber to get rid of the smoke smell. Next, they removed the charred light fixture and cabinetry from the kitchen. The damaged window was pulled out and boarded up. The kitchen was then HEPA vacuumed of any fire extinguisher residue. Within a few days, the team made it "Like it never even happened."

Why Charging Phones and Mattresses Don't Mix

This fire started by a charging cellphone left on a mattress. Within a few moments, the charging phone overheated, and the mattress ignited. Thankfully, the customer was able to smother the fire before it got too out of hand. To successfully remove the smoke odor and soot, this customer called SERVPRO of South Greenville County.

Tornado Damage Affects Local Church. SERVPRO Of South Greenville County Here To Help

Around three am, on Monday 13, 2020, an EF 3 tornado touched down and ripped through Oconee County. Unfortunately, Seneca Baptist Church was directly in its path. Due to the high winds, a portion of the roof was peeled back, leaving the pews and carpet in the sanctuary exposed to rainwater. Once the tornado stopped, area-wide power outages and water outages left the church members stuck on how to repair the damage.

The first step was to make a call to SERVPRO of South Greenville County. Once our team arrived, work immediately began. They placed several generators and installed power distribution boxes to run equipment in the sanctuary. Our crew members quickly realized we needed more equipment to dry the church promptly. We called in our Storm Team to help with the drying process. They brought a trailer load full of dehumidifiers and other drying equipment. Together, we were able to dry the church and make it "Like it never even happened."

Tile Flooring Versus Stormwater

Tile flooring is usually resilient to water. However, the longer the water sits, the more likely it is to settle into the grout. The subfloor will swell once it becomes wet causing the tile to separate and crack.

While away on vacation, this homeowner received a call from his friend that his finished basement was flooded with stormwater. The sump pump stopped working during a horrible rain storm. Stormwater waterlogged the tile flooring. When we arrived, we assessed the damage by using a nonpenetrating moisture meter. The damage to the tile floor was minimal. Next, we utilized the power of dehumidifiers and fans. We set them up in the kitchen and in the surrounding wet areas to fast track the drying process.

Soot Webs Or Spider Webs?

These are soot tags also known as soot webs. Soot bonds together and creates webs after petroleum or synthetic sources have burned. You will typically see these on the ceilings and in the corners of your home because the air is cooler in these areas. As the air is seeking equilibrium after a fire, smoke and soot will drift towards cooler areas. The corners and ceilings of perimeter walls are the coolest in your house and will collect more soot webs after a fire. If you find soot webs in your home after fire don't attempt to remove them, as you can cause more damage to the wall or ceiling. Do call SERVPRO of South Greenville County instead!
