Minimizing Fire Damage in a Los Angeles Kitchen After a Grease Fire

Kitchen fires can happen for a variety of reasons. A grease fire, for example, can cause massive damage if not mitigated quickly. While you can use common kitchen ingredients to quell fire damage to your home, it can be easy to forget which ones work and which ones do not, which can mean you end up putting flammable baking powder on a grease fire instead of baking soda.  

If a kitchen grease fire leaves you with fire damage in your Los Angeles home, SERVPRO is ready to save the day with industrial-grade equipment and tried-and-true disaster mitigation techniques. 

If you do not have an extinguisher, you can extinguish small fires with the help of baking soda or salt. However, there are a variety of ingredients that you should not use to put out a fire, including: 

-Water, which can spread and splash drops of burning oil, making fires bigger.

-Flour can easily be ignited in exposure to flame, which can make your fire worse.

-Baking powder is not the same as baking soda and can ignite when thrown on a fire.

-Sugar, which caramelizes and eventually burns when thrown on a fire, much like putting a marshmallow over a flame.

-Wet towels can flare up the fire or knock burning pans over, which can spread the fire. 

 After you make your call, our SERVPRO team can come to you within hours to address heat damage and charring on kitchen fixtures with gentle but effective blast media, like baking soda, to both freshen the smell of your kitchen. If the damage is extensive, we can pack your home and clean out the structure as well as the contents, to minimize loss for both your home and personal property.  

SERVPRO of Seal Beach/Los Alamitos/Cypress is Faster to Any Size Disaster and is ready to mitigate damage to your home and property with the help of our industrial-grade materials and certified technicians. If you need a lightning-fast response to damage from a home fire, call our team today at (562) 431-9400.
