Not everyone likes cooking. It requires some attention that people might not wish to spend after a long day. The best way to get out of cooking is by offering to make sandwiches or pay for takeout. The worst way is by burning the food as that will lead to resentment (best-case scenario) or a visit from the fire department (worst-case scenario).

If dinner goes up in smoke in your kitchen, it will probably be an honest accident. No matter how it happens, it’s likely to leave considerable damage, even if the fire itself is small. As soon as you’re able, call us – SERVPRO of Mission Valley East – at 619-303-3599.

After the Fire

You know how some presents are forever gifts because people can keep using them? Fire damage is a potential forever bad gift because it doesn’t go away, and it’s terrible, and it keeps getting worse UNLESS (and the “unless” is why we wrote “potential”) you hire a professional to remediate the damage and to help restore your home.

Smoke and soot spread throughout the house, traveling through the air vents even if the HVAC isn’t turn on. The smoke and soot are residue from the fire, and they aren’t just unsightly and smelly; they cause physical damage to the structure of your home and to your belongings. They’re triple threats!

Most insurance companies require homeowners to hire professionals to remediate the damage to collect any benefits; doing the work yourself may seem less expensive, but it is not.

Green used to be (and still is) associated with illness; Shakespeare took the idea of being sick with jealously and wrote of the “green-eyed monster” in “Othello.”
