Holiday Water Damage Restoration In Kansas City

Water damage during the holidays from frozen plumbing pipes that burst is the last thing homeowners need to worry about during all the hustle and bustle of the season. In addition to frozen pipes, water damage can be caused by putting out fires related to holiday candles, space heaters, overloaded electrical circuits and more. Homeowners should take precautions to prevent water damage.aas-restoration-water-damage-fire-department

Many of us don’t think about electrical fires in our homes caused by overloaded electrical circuits – surely it can’t happen to you, right? On the contrary – it can happen to anybody. And when it does it can be devastating. 

Fact: Every year insurance companies pay out billions of dollars in fire, smoke and water damage claims.

AAS Restoration in Kansas City has mitigated water damage and restored fire- or water-damaged homes and businesses too many times to count and the fact is, it almost always could have been prevented. For example:

Space Heaters
When temperatures drop in Kansas City, not every home has a reliable, safe heating source. That’s when some people plug in space heaters. Fires from space heaters can occur when they are left on too long causing them to overheat or when plugged into an extension cord that was damaged or was not heavy-duty enough to keep it from melting.

Kitchen Fires
Another leading cause of fire damage is kitchen fires. Unattended cooking is the usual reason for these types of fires. Getting distracted while cooking can cause a grease fire. Placing flammable items (towels, oven mitts, wooden utensils) too close to the cooking surface is also hazardous.

Fire damage due to escaped embers from the fireplace is another cause of home fires. Fires left unattended or a fireplace without a protective screen or doors in place can potentially lead to fire damage when the fire gets out of control.

                                  TIP: Never leave young children alone in a room with an open fire.

Holiday Lights
During the holidays when homeowners are stringing lights and other electrical decorations they don’t always take the necessary precautions to keep disaster at bay. Christmas tree lights with too many strands plugged into too many outlets can overload the electrical circuits, sparking fires. Outdoor lighting that is on an inadequate breaker system or flimsy extension cords can also cause serious fire damage.

                                TIP: Never leave lights on overnight or when away from home.

Many homeowners don’t realize that you should never put out (omit an) electrical or grease fires with water. The damage caused to the home can be significant and costly to repair. Water damage caused by flames, smoke, and heat can be catastrophic to your property especially if the fire has been put out with water.
