Why is it Important to Hire Professionals for Fire Damage Cleanup?
After facing a fire damage situation, some homeowners might think they can save some money by handling the cleanup themselves. But what many do not realize is that exposure to soot can actually be dangerous.
Soot is the fine black particles composed of carbon and produced by the incomplete combustion of coal, oil, wood, or other fuels. It can consist of toxic acids, chemicals, metals, soils, and dust. The toxic composition coupled with the fact that soot particles are extremely tiny is what makes it so dangerous. The airborne particles are virtually invisible so one can unknowingly be affected by inhalation or ingestion. It can travel into the lungs and bloodstream and has the potential to do serious damage.
So unfortunately, safety risks from a fire do not end once the fire is out. During the fire damage restoration process, it is important to have proper safety equipment and ventilation procedures to ensure the safety of those exposed. The SERVPRO of Kenton County technicians have specialized fire damage restoration training and expertise to handle the cleanup in a safe and effective manner. So if you are faced with a fire damage situation, let the professionals do the work! Call us at 859-261-2400 and we can help make it “Like it never even happened.”

Happy New Year from SERVPRO of Kenton County!
New Year’s Day often means a fresh start and new resolutions for many. One important resolution, that could actually save lives, is to commit to being better prepared for emergencies.
Having a plan in place in case of disasters like storms, fires or floods can help save lives and the American Red Cross offers a few suggestions to help prepare your family or business in the case of an emergency.
First of all, put together an emergency kit for the home or the office. Suggested items to include in the kit are flashlights, non-perishable food and water, battery powered radio, extra batteries, first-aid items and extra cash.
Secondly, talk with family members or co-workers about what to do in the event of an emergency. Plan what to do if you are separated and choose a meeting place. Practice escaping your home or office twice a year. And don’t forget to include your pets in the plan!
And lastly, learn about the risks most prevalent to your area. For example, are earthquakes, tornadoes or hurricanes common in your area? Find out how to receive information from local officials in the event of an emergency. Learn first aid techniques so that you can respond before help arrives.
So, this year, make emergency preparation a part of your New Year’s resolutions and help protect the ones that you love! Stay safe in 2020! Be prepared!
Happy New Year from SERVPRO of Kenton County!

Safety Precautions for Live Christmas Trees
Unfortunately, the holiday season is a time of the year that we see an increase in home fires. As families decorate their Christmas trees, they often do not realize the risk of fire that accompanies having a live Christmas tree in the home.
If a live Christmas tree is a part of your holiday traditions, there are some safety precautions to follow that can help guard against a home fire.
- Be sure to choose a fresh tree.
- Keep the tree away from any source of heat in the home.
- Make sure the tree base is always filled with water.
- Ensure that all Christmas lights are turned off at bedtime.
- Avoid using damaged lights.
- Dispose of the tree when it begins to lose its needles.
We wish for everyone to have a safe and happy holiday season. However, in the unfortunate event of a fire damage emergency, remember that SERVPRO of Kenton County is always close by and ready to help, day or night, and even on holidays!
