Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

CE Class, Property Fire Damage Restoration complete!

3/27/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Lincoln Park / Allen Park hosted it's annual CE Class on Property Fire Damage Restoration.  It was taught by a very knowledgeable member of the SERVPRO team, and well attended by a great group of insurance professionals from the area.  Nice to meet you all!


Everyone in the class gained a greater understanding of how involved property restoration can be in a fire loss, as well as how to better handle a fire emergency.


The class was motivated to learn about the many steps that are taken in the restoration process in a fire damaged property.  Fire losses can vary greatly, from smoke damage that results from a small kitchen fire to a total loss.  


The demonstrations shown in class on the restoration of highly valued, irreplaceable family heirlooms was particularly interesting.  Sometimes being able to restore a personal item can make a devastating loss more bearable.


In addition to learning about the restoration process for fire damage, the class also learned a little bit about fire safety.  The SERVPRO Lincoln Park / Allen Park team wants you to know these important facts of a fire timeline (based on a taped, timed and measured fire):



  • 0 minutes - fire started in a wicker basket with an incompletely extinguished object 

  • 2 minutes - smolder turned to flames

  • 5 minutes - temperature inside main room was ~1400 degrees F

  • 5.5 minutes - smoke went from floor to ceiling and visibility was at zero feet, making escape unlikely

  • 7 minutes - stairways were filled with smoke and noxious gases had reached deadly levels


It was clear how little time you have to react to a fire emergency and that every second does count.  They don't teach fire safety in schools anymore so please be sure to come up with a family plan in case this should ever happen to you.


SERVPRO of Lincoln Park / Allen Park is here around the clock to serve you.  If you have any property restoration needs, please call us at (313) 914-7388 or email us at office@SERVPROlincolnpark.com and above all stay safe!
