How to Handle Fire Damage in Your Paramus Kitchen

Kitchen fires are frequent throughout New Jersey and the rest of the country because there are the most electronic appliances found within the home. Over half of all house fires ignite in the kitchen. Often a blaze begins with the oven or by having combustible items near the stove.

If you experience fire damage in your Paramus kitchen, then SERVPRO is available to assist you for all of your cleanup and restoration needs.  Cleanup after a kitchen fire requires special care. Trained SERVPRO fire restoration professionals understand that the process is unique to each fire, and should happen quickly to ensure the least amount of damage as possible. Mitigation can significantly decrease out-of-pocket costs and days of inconvenience.

Some contents often found after a kitchen fire are dishware, crystal, and china. It is crucial to clean these right away so that the residue produced in the fire does not become more challenging to remove. These items are fragile and often need to be cleaned by hand. Dishware absorbs much heat during the actual fire and can suffer cracks if the home is cooled down rapidly after extinguishing the fire. Kitchen grease fires often produce an oily residue that becomes more difficult to remove from dishware the longer it stays on the dishes.

Before cleaning, SERVPRO technicians presoak the dishes in a mild alkaline detergent like the specially formulated Wall and All Surface Cleaner. If the oil and grease residue is excessive, dishes may require presoaking in a heavy-duty cleaner such as our Industrial Cleaner. Technicians take extra care with crystal and china, washing it by hand and using less aggressive cleaning methods as not to remove metallic paints or accent trims. For fragile crystal or intricately designed items, an immersion in an ultrasonic bath can be a viable option. These types of dishes need cleaning quickly because acidic smoke residues may cause etching on their surfaces.

SERVPRO focuses on each item within the impacted area of your home to ensure that they are correctly cleaned and restored whenever possible. For structural damage, our qualified team (General Contractor License: 13VH001305854800) can rebuild where necessary and make it "Like it never even happened."
