Your Hair Dryer and Flat Iron Could Cause a Fire in Your Los Angeles Home

Appliances often have a tag reminding us to unplug them when not in use. The reason for this warning is that a fire in your Los Angeles home could quickly start if one of your hair appliances malfunctions. Regardless of the flames' size, it is best to hire a professional crew to assess the damage and identify the next steps.

Los Angeles residents in need of fire restoration services can call SERVPRO for help. Our team is available around the clock to respond to your emergency and advise you on promptly restoring your home. Identifying the source of the fire and following the path of the smoke helps us take restoration action, including your HVAC system and any structural elements such as walls and columns.

How do I get rid of the smell left behind by the fire?

Fires tend to leave soot and ash behind, but the smell of smoke is often the most bothersome. Homeowners typically try to tackle the smell themselves, releasing aroma and air fresheners available in grocery and home improvement stores. However, our SERVPRO team has more options available to us to eradicate the smell. Among the equipment, we might use at your home are the following:

  • Ozone generators to neutralize the smell of smoke. Their use requires all humans and animals to vacate the home.
  • Air scrubbers whose active ingredients attract smell molecules to a filter and eliminate them.
  • Injections to insert deodorant into your carpets and disseminate a pleasant smell.

No two situations are the same, and our SERVPRO team is ready to customize its services to your needs. As a homeowner, you only need to rely on our expertise and let us apply best practices to your home. Like you, we want to minimize the fire in your daily life.

SERVPRO of Seal Beach/ Los Alamitos/ Cypress is your best resource when an emergency happens. Call us at (562) 431-9400 and let us leave your home smelling, "Like it never even happened."
