Let SERVPRO Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Santa Ana
Fire Damage Safety and Cleanup for Your Santa Ana Home
No one in Santa Ana wants to believe that a fire can happen to them, but they can and do unfortunately happen to many families each year. The difference between a fire becoming a tragedy for your family or something you made it through safely depends on how you prepare and plan for an event like this. There is a low percentage of families that have practiced a fire escape plan but knowing some safety steps beforehand can keep your family safe.
Fire damage in your Santa Ana home of any size is a scary event which upheaves your life. Once the flames are out, you also have to deal with whatever fire damage was left behind. A professional remediation company can assist you in doing this. When you reach out to us at SERVPRO for help, you can rest assured you are getting an experienced company who works quickly and efficiently to get your home back to how it was before the fire damage.
The first thing you should do to prepare for a possible fire is to create a plan of escape and go over it with every single family member. Walk through your home, drawing up a plan and identifying two ways out of each room. If you have younger children, calmly explain to them the effects of a house fire and what to look for in case of an emergency. They can help you draw up an escape plan, and make sure all children in the home know how to call 911 and use it correctly.
Even small fires create smoke damage which SERVPRO technicians make sure to thoroughly clean. When it comes to windows, it not only means we need to clean the glass but also the framework and any hardware which is part of the construction of the window. To remove residues from glass without streaking, we use a low-alkaline glass cleaner. A spray bottle is used to apply the product, and then a squeegee is used to remove the smoke residues.
You also should identify all exits and which ones should be taken in case of a fire. All family members need to know where to exit, plus an alternative exit. Think about any obstacles that could be in the way such as furniture or bars on the windows.
A meeting place should also be planned. It is somewhere you and your family members can meet up right after you escape the home. Have a meeting place and an alternative one as well in case the main one is not safe. Some good places include the front sidewalk or a neighbor’s house.
