Having the knowledge of what causes a fire helps you to take action to help prevent a fire in the future. Here are the three main causes of a house fire:

  • Cooking - Cooking in chaos can cause fires. Never leave dish towels or anything flammable on the stove. When cooking, never leave the room and keep a close eye on what is cooking.

water in basement Have you recently experienced a flood in your basement or anywhere in your home?

Have you recently experienced a flood in your basement or anywhere in your home? If you are searching how to get the job done, this is the place for you. Depending on how much water came into your home, to get the job done right, you will most likely need professional help.

How Do I Know If I Need a Professional?

If you have experienced water damage in your home, there are a few things to look for to see if you need professional restoration. Where did the water come in from? If it is water from the outside or from a toilet, you should call the professionals. It is unsafe to handle unsanitary water on your own. If you have a finished area made up of drywall, carpet, furniture, etc. and it has been affected by water, you should call a professional. The process of identifying if the materials should be kept or pitched takes experience and industry knowledge to determine. If indeed your materials need dried out, a simple fan from the store will absolutely not do the job.

Why Do I Need a Professional to Dry Out My Area?
