Post Fire Hazards: Electronics!

10/14/2019 (Permalink)

As you investigate the damage that a fire caused in your home or business, it is important to remember that fire-damaged electronics can present a serious hazard!

You SHOULD NOT attempt to turn on or operate any electrical device that you suspect has been damaged by fire. Smoke residues can contain acids that corrode metal surfaces; if the residues are not removed, corrosion causes electronic failure in the device.

Do not try and clean these items, either. A SERVPRO Franchise will coordinate the restoration of your electronics, including: Television sets, DVD players, Computers, and more!

The key to restoring electronics is taking prompt action to prevent further damage. Electronics will be cleaned and inspected by a qualified electronics technician and returned to you if we deem the safe to use!
