The company is reminding their Los Angeles community about the principles of fire safety in their homes, reports

SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale wants to highlight a few of the most common threats associated with fire damage and show them how they can prevent them from causing further damage to their property – and to their lives – after a fire occurs in their home. SERVPRO has this and other free advice for local residents readily available via the company’s website, which is accessible around the clock.

“Many people have heard the most common advice about preventing fires, such as cooking with proper ventilation, never leaving burning candles unattended, replacing damaged electrical cords, and ensuring dryer vents and pipes are never obstructed. However, a lot of local residents have no idea the dangers that may await them after even the smallest of fires has already broken out in their home. Fortunately, we’re giving them all the information they need on this topic and helping them understand why the best thing they can do for themselves is call a restoration expert right away,” said Bert Gabledon of SERVPRO of Eagle Rock South Glendale.

In their advice to homeowners at, the SERVPRO team underscores the importance of allowing a professional to properly check for structural damage to the home, which can present safety hazards in places the homeowner may not even be aware of. The same can be said about soot, which can be dry or oily and cause discoloration of the homeowner’s belongings as well as respiratory issues if breathed in. Finally, homeowners who have experienced fires small and large in their home need to be aware of the dangers of noxious smoke odors, which can seep into furniture, fabrics, clothing, and other materials and is nearly impossible to remove without special equipment like a thermal fogger and hydroxyl generator.

Gabledon went on to say, “We know that dealing with the aftermath of a fire in the home can be scary, but homeowners can prevent many of the most common issues that plague fire damaged homes by calling a professional fire damage restoration technician before these problems go from bad to worse and many things become unsalvageable. Our experts are highly-trained in the best techniques and standards, and we can help remove all traces of damage, restore the home quickly, and help homeowners get back to their normal lives.”
