Fire Risks Lurk in Every Room of Your Buffalo Grove Home

Most homeowners in Buffalo Grove do not experience fire damage first-hand, but that doesn’t mean they are not at risk. The COVID pandemic and the shift to work from home invited many homeowners to repurpose some rooms to create home offices and additional living spaces. In the process, they may have increased their vulnerability to a home fire without knowing. Should a computer or printer start a fire, you must be ready to act quickly.

For fire restoration services in Buffalo Grove, call SERVPRO. Once you call our 24/7 hotline, we arrive quickly and thoroughly inspect the damage. With the information, we create an action plan that may include move-out services and specialty drying solutions. We also move industrial-grade equipment into your home to help clean up and deodorize. As needed, we set up physical barriers to isolate affected areas and avoid cross-contamination throughout the home. All these steps happen quickly to mitigate the fire’s impact on your home life.

To help protect your home, keep in mind a few checkpoints you should consider to reduce your risk of fire. Some of the most common culprits, particularly in newly created home offices, are the following:

  • Space heater, especially those positioned too close to paperwork or other easily flammable items
  • Excessive electronics plugged into outlets. Chargers, computers, printers, etc., could create an electrical hazard and spark a fire.
  • Burning incense or scented candles too close to curtains, paper, or other items can quickly catch fire.

When many of us relocated to working from home, we focused on space availability. If your makeshift home office is now a permanent space, assess its safety. But when there’s trouble, call SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove/ Lake Zurich at (847) 279-1940 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
