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."
