Candles seem to get more popular every year, and the number of candle fires is high in the United States, especially in the winter, but not exclusively.

What may look like a small amount of smoke damage can turn out to be a large problem. Many materials leave behind a residue that spreads throughout the house and gets over time. Stains worsen and become corrosive, odors linger, and new damage seems to appear out of nowhere.

If you suspect fire or smoke damage, call us, SERVPRO of Spring Valley/Jamul. We are franchise professionals who have extensive training and hands-on experience in:

  • Cleanup and disinfection from all kinds of disasters
  • Identification of different types of smoke damage, so we know to remediate
  • Equipment and training to stop the corrosion
  • If necessary, remediation of water damage
  • Odor elimination (note: we do not simply mask the odors; we eliminate them)
  • Pack-up and move-out services

When Disaster Strikes, Call SERVPRO of Spring Valley/Jamul

Remember: smoke is not just unsightly; it is corrosive. It will destroy flooring, textiles, and hard surfaces such as concrete and stone. It can damage electronics, including the wiring.

Smoke damage can irritate our eyes and respiratory systems, so it is important to get it cleaned up as quickly as possible.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has several recommendations about using candles safely including,

  • Keeping them away from children and pets
  • Place candles on stable, flat surfaces
  • Do not leave them unattended
  • Do not leave candles near flammable materials such as paper, textiles, flowy clothing, or decorations
  • Do not leave candles in a room where people might fall asleep
  • Extinguish candles when you leave a room or the house

The NFPA notes that there are new electric candles (a contradiction in terms, we know): some of which even smell like wax!

Happy 2021 from SERVPRO of Spring Valley/Jamul!
