Whom Can I Call for Help with Cleanup After A Clothes Dryer Fire in Vineyards?

5/11/2020 (Permalink)

Certified Disaster Mitigation Pros Are Available to Restore Your Vineyards Home 24/7 

Whether dryer lint ignites or an electrical failure causes ignition, dryer fires can be sudden and fierce. Worse still, over 15,000 of these fires occur each year across the US, causing an average of $192 million in direct property loss for homeowners. 

SERVPRO is ready to take care of the damage and restore your home to its preloss condition if you need assistance to remove laundry room fire damage from your Vineyards property. While everyday home cleaners are ill-equipped for the job, these Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-accredited pros have a plethora of materials at their disposal for mitigating fire damage, odors, and related residues. 

What Are the Most Common Causes of Clothes Dryer Fire Damage?

  • Combusting lint. Make sure to clean out the lint filter after every load to prevent flammable buildup.
  • Outdoor vent flap obstructions. Debris in front of the vent flap is enough to restrict airflow and create problems for your dryer.
  • Flex duct failures. While flex duct or plastic can be more cost-effective, they are often more combustible due to sagging that allows for lint buildup. Solid metal ductwork, meanwhile, avoids this issue. 

How Can SERVPRO Restore My Laundry Room After Fire Damage? 

A clothes dryer fire requires a team that can clean up soot and repair damaged areas in your laundry room. Your local SERVPRO can handle both soot and odor control with EPA-registered biocides as well as commercial-grade deodorizers. 

These technicians can also remove damaged drywall, insulation, flooring, and other structural materials before repairing and replacing these components. If affected areas in your home require a specialist for restoration, SERVPRO can help you find local professionals who can care for specific restoration needs. 

SERVPRO of East Naples is prepared to leave your residence looking, “Like it never even happened.” When you need disaster cleanup, you can call (239) 352-8300 for a rapid-response service that starts within hours.
