Renovation Fire in New Baltimore?

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

A kitchen in a home is in the process of being renovated. Mount Clemens and New Baltimore area residents rely on us to mitigate fires damage.

Renovators beware!

According to an article from CNBC, last year kitchen and remodeling services saw a 40 percent jump in demand, and home extensions and additions jumped 52 percent above the previous year. In a  National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) report, three out of every four fires in structures under construction involved residential properties. SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore responds to fire damage emergencies in the New Baltimore area throughout the year, and we see firsthand the damage even a small fire can cause.

Here are some more interesting NFPA report highlights:

  • The leading cause of fires in structures was electrical distribution and lighting equipment, accounting for nearly one-quarter of fires.
  • A structural member or framing was the leading item first ignited in structures under major renovation, accounting for one-fifth of direct property damage.
  • The leading factors contributing to the ignition of fires in structures under major renovation included electrical failures or malfunctions and heat sources too close to combustible materials.
  • Arcing was the leading heat source in these fires, followed by a spark, ember, or flame from operating equipment, radiated or conducted heat from operating equipment, and unclassified heat from powered equipment.
