MOST COMMON KITCHEN FIRE AND SMOKE CAUSES
Kitchen Fire Damage and Restoration Costs
A home can be damaged by different types of fires. Most house fires are started by grease, oil, or animal fats in the kitchen. Kitchen fires tend to flare up quickly. The walls, cabinets, and appliances in the kitchen can also be damaged by kitchen fires. It is also possible for these fires to quickly spread to other parts of the home. Smoke and soot residue will inevitably spread to areas that were never affected by the flames, as is the case in many house fires. Kitchen fires generally spread faster and are more aggressive than electrical fires. The cost of kitchen fire restoration is therefore on the higher side. Essentially, you are building a new kitchen plus fire damage cleanup. The cost of restoring a 2,500-square-foot kitchen after a fire can range from $12,000 to $20,000+. While the above is true, if a Class A fire causes structural damage to your home, the cost of repairs can skyrocket.
Primary concerns to consider after a kitchen fire in your home
Residual Soot/Smoke Damage
Your home’s indoor air quality will be contaminated by soot, smoke, and ash residue, corroding surfaces and causing further damage as time goes by. When a fire is extinguished, it is essential to begin professional fire damage restoration as soon as possible.
Odor Damage from Fire/Smoke
In addition to the physical damage caused by fire, smoke and ash particles persist in the air for a long period, causing permeating odors to remain. A fire can leave you with odors in your home for days or weeks. Ozone and other professional deodorizers can effectively get rid of those odors.
Water Damage from Extinguishing the Fire
Your kitchen floors, walls, furniture, and other possessions can be damaged by the water used to put out the fire. In addition to causing extensive damage to your home’s structure, excess water can also cause hazardous mold growth in your home if left unattended. Cleanup must start immediately.
