Fire Damage Prevention

October is Fire Prevention Month!  This fall and beyond, SERVPRO of Cecil County would like to remind everyone to stay safe and follow the proper safety procedures when it comes to fire safety.  According to the National Fire Protection Agency, cooking fires are the leading cause of house fires.   Remember to never leave your cooking unattended, and to be mindful of grilling and outdoor bonfires.

Ensure your fire extinguishers and smoke alarms are working properly.  Install smoke alarms in every room and on every level of the property.  Replace the alarms every ten years and the batteries every six months.

The NFPA also recommends that you create a fire escape plan for you and your family, as well as for your business and employees.  Look at all possible exits, doors and windows, and discuss both a primary and secondary evacuation route for each area with the involved party.

In the event of a fire, determine an outside meeting point after evacuation, and do not re-enter the structure until you are told it is safe to do so.

SERVPRO of Cecil County hopes that everyone continues to follow all safety guidelines for fire prevention!  Should you suffer a fire, smoke or soot issue in your Elkton home or business, our fire restoration team can handle any size event.  Our fire restoration procedures include a full demolition and cleaning of a property or other necessary services such as duct cleaning in order to fully ensure healthy and clean air quality in the space.  Our team is here to help, no matter how large or small the disaster!
