We recently received a job involving fire damage. The fire took place in the kitchen and was caused by a pan left on the stove unsupervised. The kitchen, living rooms, and bedrooms were affected by the smoke and soot. Thankfully the home wasn't completely lost and the homeowner reached out to SERVPRO of South Pasadena/San Marino for mitigation. The kitchen area is one of the leading causes of fires. Some things to be aware of to lessen the chances when cooking are

  • Don’t leave stove unattended when cooking
  • Keep up with stove maintenance; prevents a malfunction
  • Make sure there are no gas leaks
  • Clean the stove regularly; make sure there is no grease
  • Don't set the flame level to unnecessary levels
  • If you cook with high heat pay closer attention 
  • Keep flammable items away 
  • Use appropriate cooking utensils
  • Be aware of your surroundings
