Fire Damage Made It a Halloween Night to Remember!

October 22nd, 2019 · No Comments

It’s Halloween night and the late October winds are howling through the trees like a werewolf at the full moon. Suddenly there’s smoke pouring into your house – one of the jack-o’-lanterns on the front porch has blown over, spewing hot, flaming candle wax onto the siding, flooring, and porch railing! Fire damage has hit just like that.


You get the blaze under control, but there’s also smoke damage in the house from the smoke pouring through the open windows and doors. Where in Baltimore County, MD can you find fire damage restoration services, even on Halloween night?


Before needing restoration services, how do you prevent a fire from starting? While candles give a nice spooky, eerie affect to your jack-o’-lanterns, they offer lots of opportunities for a fire to start. When pumpkins start to decompose, they become soft and begin to collapse in on themselves. As they collapse, they’ll come into contact with the candle, and the heat can eventually cause the pumpkin to catch fire and cause fire damage. Pumpkins can also tip over, spreading flaming candle wax just about anywhere. Using battery-powered LED lights would prevent both scenarios from happening. LEDs emit a lot of light without heat and can perfectly and safely mimic the flickering, spooky lighting effects a jack-o’-lantern needs!


The pumpkin did catch fire, now what? In Baltimore, call ServiceMaster by Libby Green for fire damage restoration. Our technicians are extensively trained to offer top-notch service.
