How Cleveland Residents Can Avoid a Cooking-Related House Fire this Thanksgiving

ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration Services provides fire restoration services throughout the Cleveland area.

Another holiday season is quickly approaching in the greater Cleveland area. Though Halloween has come and gone, there’s still that traditional big meal preparation for Thanksgiving, and likely another come Christmas. If any pointers can be given to the cooks out there it is to be safe while cooking, and be very wary of sudden grease fires.

We all know how it is. When cooking a large meal for our friends and family, the amount of food to prepare quickly becomes overwhelming. Luckily for some there may be volunteers to help in the kitchen, thus making the load much lighter. But that doesn’t negate the fire hazard potential. If the unfortunate does happen and a fire erupts, repairs will likely be needed. From the cleaning of reeking smoke stained surfaces to the removal of burned debris and fire restoration of the affected areas, ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration Services is here to help. We can help you with fire restoration in Cleveland from simple single burner fires that cause smoke damage all the way up to heavy structural damage.

Some of you out there in Cleveland, OH love to deep fry your turkeys, while others prefer oven roasting. No matter how you prepare the main course, be sure to keep safety in mind at all times. It’s recommended to keep a fire extinguisher on hand as grease immediately ignites when it comes into contact with open flames or red hot stove coils. Ovens offer the same issues, especially if a turkey pan begins to leak the turkey grease onto its hot surfaces.

Fires are a constant concern during the holiday season. Don’t let one sneak up on you. Please maintain your wits and have a plan if something does go wrong. If you are the unfortunate victim of a fire, please reach out to your insurance company as soon as the flames are extinguished. They will likely recommend a professional fire restoration service like ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration Services. We stand ready to help you if the need ever arises. Fire restoration is a specialty we do well and where we always have your best interests at heart.
