How Contents in Your Santa Monica Beach Could Become Fuel for a Fire

What's in your garage? Typical garages contain fuel sources for fires.

Fire Damage Cleanup in the Garage of Your Santa Monica Home

The kitchen is the most common room in homes in Santa Monica for fires to start, but garages run a close second. You store your cars in your garage, and many people also like to use their garage for working on them or other projects. Storing gas, oil, or other flammable materials in this enclosed place is typical. Homeowners also use garages for storage, adding clutter to the area which becomes fuel for fires.

As with any fire damage, the best thing is a good offense or being proactive to try and make your garage safe from the threat of fire. However, when a fire does break out in your Santa Monica home, you need the assistance of a professional remediation company such as SERVPRO to help you clean up the mess. With our expertise and experience, we can have your garage restored to make it appear as if nothing ever happened.  

One thing to do to prevent a fire in your garage is to keep it clear of clutter. It is not only safer when you are walking around the garage, but it also lessens the chance of a fire spreading in case of a sudden spark.  

Keeping flammable liquids stored in small amounts and away from any heat sources is essential as well. Propane tanks should be stored outside, as they are sturdy and equipped for sitting outdoors.  

When cleaning the affected area after a fire, SERVPRO techs need to take safety precautions when using any disinfecting, cleaning, or deodorizing product. Chemical residues can bother some people more than others, so before using them, we listen to any comments from you, the customer, on concerns about chemical usage and odors.

We always protect your safety while we apply cleaning products and ensure that you and your family are not in the area while we are applying disinfectants and deodorizers. We adequately vent the area and give the products time to dry before we have you enter back into the garage.  

SERVPRO of Santa Monica/Venice Beach is always available to help you restore your garage in your home in Ocean Park, Venice Beach, or Marina Del Rey after a fire. When you call us at (310) 395-9050, we can be at your home fast to clean and disinfect it, while keeping everyone’s safety in mind as we work.
