Downtown Pasadena Fire
Water Leaks to Electrical Fire
Electrical wiring can be found in nearly every modern building and supplies important electricity to ensure our lives run efficiently. On the downside, there are risks associated with wet wiring. One of the most common fire jobs we see at SERVPRO of South Pasadena/San Marino is caused by electrical fire damage. These are usually the cause of the exposed wire coming in contact with water.
List of Potential Causes
Electrical outlets may come in contact with water through a leaking roof, sudden flooding, or a big rainstorm. In an establishment in downtown Pasadena, a burst pipe flooded the upstairs and caused water to leak down to the kitchen below. Unfortunately, the electrical appliances were affected which caused an electrical kitchen fire. This is an unfortunate instance where water and fire damage happen at the same time. In homes, smaller-scale water issues such as a splash or leaking pipe can allow water to easily come into contact with an electrical outlet or worn-down wire. In cases where a recent flood has occurred, we strongly recommend that electricity to the home be shut off until professionals arrive. This reduces the risk of further damage occurring.
