ServiceMaster by Knipper Repairs Electrical Fire Damage in Dyersville, IA

The origins of a fire tell a lot about what to expect when it’s time to clean up and restore your house and belongings. Where a fire begins and the ignition and fuel sources are factors that contribute to the kind of damage left behind. When a wiring or other electrical malfunction is the cause, you’re left with a special kind of carbonized stain on all the affected surfaces. This staining is from the burned and melted wiring insulation, and can leave a trail of damage based on what wire the fire may have followed. This is the kind of situation you don’t want to confront alone. Call ServiceMaster by Knipper for the best in fire damage restoration and repair in the Dyersville area.

The odor after any fire is unpleasant. It lingers in your ductwork, carpet, and furnishings, and permeates into wallpaper and woodwork. With an electrical fire the odor can prove especially bad due to the various plastic compounds used to insulate the wiring. We’re emphasizing wiring because, according to the National Fire Prevention Association, over 60 percent of household electrical fires are due to faulty wiring. Wiring fires also cause half the damage from all such fires. The only worse causes are faulty appliance cords, plugs, and extension cords, because those fires have higher fatality rates. Your family’s safety is your utmost concern. Make sure your smoke alarms are operating in every room. Also check with your electrician to ensure you have sufficient capacity for the electrical load in your home, especially if it’s an older home.
