What happens when a fire extinguisher goes off?

What happens when a fire extinguisher goes off? It leaves a mess. Fire extinguishers contain different chemicals, depending on the application. The active material may be a powder such as potassium bicarbonate (KHCO3), liquid water, an evaporating fluorocarbon or the propelling agent itself. 

Recently, SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian cleaned a bus which incurred a mess when a fire extinguisher went off inside.  Our crew performed a general cleaning as well as monitored the area for moisture.

When the unexpected happens, call the cleanup team that is faster to any size disaster.

Microwave Fire in Tracy's Landing

The back of this microwave is the cause of a small home fire.  The malfunctioning appliance sparked and lead to the kitchen cabinets needing to be replaced and the home needing to be deodorized. Our team was able to respond and get the home back in working order.

Chimney Fires in West River can Destroy Structures

Chimney fires are very common in colder months of the year.  When chimneys accumulate a build up of residue in the lining, creosote, it is very combustible.  When the internal flue temperature is high enough the creosote can ignite and then lead to surrounding structure of the home. Annual chimney cleaning is recommended by the CSIA.

Air Scrubbers Help in Galesville Home

During a fire repair job our crews are likely to set up air scrubbers. The machines are used to pull air through several filters and efficiently remove particles from the air to help improve indoor air quality.  These filters are changed when they are "full" which can happen several times at a fire damaged home.

Content Storage after a Fire

When a fire hits a portion of a home it can have an effect on all areas.  Our team can pack out the contents for cleaning and then we store them onsite, until the home is restored.
