Grilling Ribs and Steaks in Miami Gardens? Invite SERVPRO to Cleanup Any Mishaps with Fire Loss
Fire Damage Technicians Out of Miami Gardens Discuss Problems with Barbecues
During this time of year in Miami Gardens, many people enjoy barbecuing on the grill outside. Many do not realize it, but outdoor barbecues are very often a source of fire damage. At any time, the wind can pick up and send a chunk of charcoal flying toward your house. Since it is estimated that 75% of American families own an outdoor grill the risk is one that everyone should take seriously. Every year around 600 structures experience fire damage as a result of outdoor cooking, which is almost two every day.
According to the statistics, the summer months are when most grill-caused burns take place. In Southern Florida, barbequing is a year-round event. One minute you can be grilling a steak outside in Miami Gardens, then fire damage can suddenly occur. Most of the cases of structure fires started by barbecues happen when people use charcoal or other solid fuels. However, when propane or gas grills leak, they can also set components and fixtures ablaze.
Once a flaming hot piece of charcoal gets close to fuel outside your home or your house itself, the cooking fuel can start a fire that can burn just a part or all of your building. Once the fire gets extinguished, and everyone is safe it is time to call in SERVPRO's experts to assess the situation. Initially, our estimators go in and inspect your entire property for problems. We come to your place equipped with a testing kit that helps us determine whether we can restore things inside your house or not. Once we have inspected everything that got affected, our SERVPRO estimators write up a preliminary estimate for you and your insurance adjuster. Often, all it takes is a spot-inspection to identify the problem areas and start a cleanup and recovery service.
Even if the fire did not burn into your house very far, smoke could still be a problem. Smoke consists of partially combusted particles that solidify when they come into contact with cooler surfaces. Once smoke hits a surface, it can penetrate into the item causing burnt odors to exist and coat the surface of the object with soot residue.
If you ever have an accident while barbecuing like 600 other Americans every day do, call SERVPRO of South Miami at (786) 610-5955 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
