Don't Let An Electrical Fire Destroy Your Ham Lake Home

Fire Damage Don't Let An Electrical Fire Destroy Your Ham Lake Home Once an outlet sparks and ignites a flame, the fire damages can spread quickly throughout adjoining rooms through the wall cavities of your home.

Overloaded Electrical System In Your Ham Lake Home Can Cause Fire

As the holidays approach, many Ham Lake homeowners poise themselves to make the same mistakes that they do every year. With all the corded items relating to decorations, outlets easily become maxed out from the use of multiple extension cords all plugged into the same receiver. While your home has been safeguarded in part to prevent combustion from overworked outlets, these preventative measures do not always work.

Once an outlet sparks and ignites a flame, the fire damages can spread quickly throughout adjoining rooms through the wall cavities of your Ham Lake residence. As obscure as this situation might seem for causing a fire to break out in your residence, aging electrical systems and overloaded outlets and fuses are common culprits for house fires throughout the holidays. While the initial solution is to manage the distribution and limitations of your electrical system better, most homeowners do not come to the realization anything is wrong until disaster strikes.

Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly in the midst of a disaster and be available to you in this trying time beginning right after first responders have extinguished the flames. We can quickly assess the full scope of the damage, cataloging the loss that your home has sustained and detailing the nature of the work required to restore your property to original condition. Our initial inspection can document all of the necessary information required by your insurance provider to make filing a claim more efficient.

We can also speak directly with your insurance adjuster and communicate with you about the estimated cost of the restoration. You might find that filing a claim and raising your premiums could be unnecessary if the estimated costs do not exceed or gently exceed your deductible.

While no homeowner wants their holidays affected by an unexpected fire, our SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County rapid response team can work quickly to make it “Like it never even happened.” You can reach our dedicated and qualified professionals 24/7 by calling (763) 712-9712.
