Understanding Children's Fascination with Fire in Cape Coral
Fire Damage in Cape Coral Gets Help from SERVPRO
Fires are perfect for roasting your marshmallows this summer or lighting your birthday candles. Fire is a fascinating tool and is a chemical reaction that happens right before your eyes. A blaze needs oxygen and fuel to burn, and once it begins flaming, does not stop until it runs out of either one or both. However, even a small fire can get out of control quickly and can burn down an entire home. Many fires are started by children, so it is important to teach your kids about the dangers of fire.
Fires move fast to create plenty of damage. A fire can burn your Cape Coral home down in just minutes. They are not only a danger inside, but outdoors, burning piles of grass or leaves can also get out of control. Campfires can also lead to wildfires if they are not extinguished properly.
When a fire of any size has damaged your home, you need professionals to help you repair and restore it, such as SERVPRO, who are trained and experienced fire and smoke restoration specialists. We repair the damage from fire, plus from water and smoke and soot. Not handling any of these conditions promptly can result in additional damage and expenses.
Small children are often curious, which is the main reason they play with fire. They do not understand how much damage can occur. If you see any children playing with candles, matches, or any fire, ensure to stop them right away and find their parents.
Older children may be tempted to touch a candle which is lit, or light something on fire just to see what happens. Stress to your kids not to do this, as they can easily burn themselves, destroy homes and woods, and injury other people.
Sometimes even with proper teaching, accidents still happen when children play with fire. At SERVPRO, we completely understand how scary and stressful a situation like this can be for your whole family. We do not waste time getting to your home after you contact us so we can assess the damages and talk to you about a remediation plan. We help restore your home to its condition before the fire, so it is "Like it never even happened." We also talk to your insurance company for you so you have less stress and can attend to your family’s needs.
