SERVPRO of Western Lancaster Helps Clean Up After Fire in Manheim
Nobody ever plans for a fire, but when one does happen, SERVPRO of Western Lancaster is here to help!
This loss was caused by a grease fire in a kitchen. Now, our natural instinct would be to use water for any fire, but avoid this practice with grease fires! This will just make matters worse.
Grease fires are caused when the cooking oil gets to hot and catches on fire. If you should find yourself in this predicament, turn off the heat and do the following:
- Cover with a metal lid, this will deprive the fire of oxygen it needs to burn. Do not use glass, it will shatter.
- For small fires, use baking soda.
- If available, use a kitchen fire extinguisher.
- If it becomes too much or out of control, get out of the house and call 911 immediately!
Safety is of utmost important. For any help with clean-up after, be sure to call SERVPRO!
