Kitchen Fire Tips

Kitchen Fire Tips

If you suffer from a kitchen fire:

  • If grease catches fire, don’t try to move the pan or pot. Put a metal lid on top of the pan to shut off the oxygen supply to the fire.
  • Never, ever try to put out a grease fire with water. The water can splash and spread drops of burning oil, making the fire even bigger

Air mover drying wall

Air mover drying wall

This business in New Hyde Park called us immediately after they notice water damaging walls. It was extremely important to dry out the walls as quickly as possible. 

These powerful fans use efficient, yet powerful, motors to create high-velocity airflow that dries water-damaged areas quickly. During operation, an air mover rapidly moves the air around in a space, which heightens the rate of moisture evaporation.

Pre Testing Process

Pre Testing Process

We use chemical dry sponges to help the mitigating process of any loss by determining what can be repaired instead of replaced. On a lot of surfaces we try to avoid wet cleaning which often leads to smearing, smuding or staining and can actually do more damage on certain surfaces than the fire did. These thick, porous dry cleaning chemical sponges are used primarily in smoke and soot removal in fire damage jobs. 

Weighted water extractor

Weighted water extractor

One way to make the carpet drying process go faster is by using a weighted extraction system. In this picture our water removal technician is essentially walking throughout the wet area and pressing down into the carpet, where the extraction tool then begins sucking up any water through the vacuum it is attached to, including any water soaked into the carpet’s padding or underlay.

Moisture Meter

Moisture Meter

Moisture meters are a very helpful tool for detecting the presence of moisture in building materials, and for helping to pinpoint the source of that moisture intrusion, even when the origin point may be out of sight.

This one is showing that the wall has 99.9 % of humidity, meaning that there is water damage in this specific area.
