Soot From Fire Damage
A fire that started in the elevator shaft of a commercial building caused repercussions throughout different parts of the structure as well. Unless it's summer and you're sitting next to a bonfire fires are never anticipated. In almost any case, they are not what any business owner wants for themselves. As you can see in the picture we have a different point of view from the building and there is soot damage present on the flooring. This is shown by the darker color on the floor and the foot prints shown within them. SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City went in to this job and before we even put a single piece of equipment down we assured the business owner that this was nothing new to us.

It Seems Like Every Day a Different Home is up in Flames.
There is a long list of causes when it comes to home fires. They're beginning to become a commonality. When you're victim of a house fire you lose everything; all the memories you've made, burnt to a crisp.
Some practices to preventing a fire in your home are as follows:
- Make sure everything is switched OFF and unplugged
- Check/Inspect your chimney annually
- Keep comforters and anything flammable away from heaters
- Test fire alarms/ replace batteries frequently
- Never smoke in the home
- Keep a spoon or spatula as a reminder when cooking/ do not leave stove tops unattended when lit
It is widely recommended that families practice a fire escape route in the event a fire does occur. No one sees a fire coming and it's best you know what plan of action to take in case you're faced with one.
In the event your home has endured a fire, call SERVPRO Hoboken/ Union City at 201-656-0035 and we'll make it like it never even happened.
