Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Matches are not a Game

Matches are not a Game

              Last year was a year of floods and rainfall. Floods and storms happened all over the world. Houston, Texas was not an exception. We received flood water throughout the entire year. With all of that rainfall you would think that there would be less fires (because the houses are wet still). Unfortunately fires are caused by accidents or arson so they are not affected by the weather usually. We (SERVPRO of Katy Cypress) had one job in particular that sticks out to me.

              Last year we received a phone call about a house fire that affected the entire two story house. We got out there in an hour to see how bad it was and the cause of the fire. We found out that one of the kids had been playing with matches. Now we have all done this. I know that I played with them when I was a kid and burned myself. Luckily for me I burned my finger not my parents house.

              Once we found the room of origin we begin to clean all the surfaces and contents. We threw out anything that was not restorable and started to make the house back to something of what it was. The ash on the walls begin to disappear. The contents were shiny again. The furniture was clean as it was before the fire if not cleaner. The house started to smell like a house and not a fire pit.

              At the end of the day this could happen to anyone. While fire restoration is our job and we take pride in our work this was also something that didn’t need to happen. Make sure you tell your kids about this horror story so they know that matches aren't a game. Fire is dangerous and this family is lucky they didn’t get hurt!
