Fire Damage Preventing Fire Damage from the Toaster in Your Lilburn Kitchen When crumbs accumulate in the bottom of your toaster, they can easily catch fire during normal operation.

Steps for Fire Damage Restoration

Given the right circumstances, almost any electrical appliance in your home in Lilburn can become a fire hazard. Electric toasters are being included in this category more and more lately. Toasters have existed almost as long as electricity. They are naturally fire hazards because of the heat they produce. After all, they are made to generate enough heat with electricity to brown slices of bread put into the slots. If the electric elements which generate heat do not turn off as they are supposed to, the bread can burn and cause a fire.

After bread is toasted, it is more fragile and produces crumbs which many times fall into the appliance. When these crumbs are left to accumulate, they can catch fire easily during normal operation of the toaster and can cause fire damage in your Lilburn home quickly.

It is best to reach out to our technicians at SERVPRO after a fire in your home. We are an experienced fire damage remediation company, and we know that time is of the essence once the damage has been done so that more damage does not occur from soot and smoke.

After assessing the fire damage, our technicians look at four fundamental elements that are needed to suspend residues left by the fire so we can remove them.

Temperature is the first, as heat increases the speed of chemical reactions in cleaning products. We choose an appropriate temperature depending on the solution and the material we are cleaning.

We also agitate surfaces by using brushes, towels, air and water pressure, and sonic vibrations in ultrasonic machines. Agitation dislodges the residues from surfaces and spreads the cleaning products over them.

Our SERVPRO staff also choose the right cleaning product according to the action we desire, which includes emulsifying, dissolving, oxidizing, bleaching, digesting or changing pH. The professional cleaning products work by various chemical reactions, so the appropriate one needs to be chosen. Also, the time which is necessary to thoroughly clean and deodorize your home depends on the types of residues present and the products used.

You can trust SERVPRO of North Lilburn to take care of your home after a toaster fire properly. Residents in the areas of Pleasant Hill or Lilburn can reach us at any time by dialing (770) 709-3266.
