A fire damage is one of the most destructive and detrimental types of damages that can happen to a home or business owner. Did you know there were nearly 400,000 fires in the United States last year alone? While a fire can be quite costly and even more stressful, finding the right company to take care of your needs is the key. Complete DKI can assist you with all your fire damage needs whether it be contents cleaning or the restoration and reconstruction of your home. Complete DKI has a list of the most common causes for fire damage claims along with what you can do to help prevent such a disaster. Six of the most common causes for fire damage claims and why

  1. Cooking- Almost everyone has that aunt who is just terrible in the kitchen! Cooking fires account for about 40% of all fires within the home. These fires can result from unattended ovens, grease, oil or pans on the stove top.
  2. Electrical- Electrical fires can happen from a range of things, and are quite common. Most of the time it is due to a short within the outlet, or someone plugging too many things into one outlet. This happens because an outlet is only allowed to pull so many watts at one time, once the limit is exceeded that is when it becomes dangerous.
  3. Candles- Candles, a big no no! Whether you have them for looks, light, or just for the scent. NEVER leave a candle unattended, it is an open flame and can catch fire to almost anything if given the chance.
  4. Christmas Trees- Everyone loves the smell of a real Christmas tree during the holidays! In order to help prevent a fire you must keep your tree well watered! After all, you are wrapping electrical cords around a piece of wood. Better to keep the tree wet, than let it get dry (which increases your chance for fire).
  5. Children playing with fire- No one likes to think about it, but it does happen. Children are curious about things, and one of those things is fire. Whether they were playing with a match or a lighter, the result can be bad. To help children’s curiosity, you can take your child by any fire station. Fire fighters would be more than happy to help educate your child on the dangers of playing with fire.
  6. Space Heaters- No doubt, it gets cold in the winter time! What else keeps the room nice and warm better than a space heater? Almost nothing! Dust can build up in the motors fan quite easily. If it is not properly cleaned or taken care of, a fire can result.

Reading this, you may be saying to yourself “oh that’ll never happen to me, what are the chances”. Chances are, it’s very possible! While you may have control over whether or not there is a candle lit within your home, you don’t quite have control over your electrical outlets. It is important to remember to always take the necessary precautions to help prevent a fire. If you have experienced a fire in your home or business, Complete DKI is here to help no matter what time. We specialize in fire cleanup, and reconstruction. Don’t hesitate to call, even if it’s 3 AM! When we say we’re here for you 24/7, we mean it!

Water damages are one of the most common claims reported to insurance companies. Did you know that a water damage claim is 10 times more likely to take place than a fire damage claim? Water damage can be caused due to a number of things such as a bad storm coming through the area, all the way to something non weather related like a leaky pipe in the wall. Complete DKI specializes in water damage mitigation and repairs.

The top 4 reasons for non weather related water damage claims and how to prevent them:

  1. Leaky washing machine hoses. In order to help prevent water damage due to a leaky hose, you should have your hoses inspected annually and replaced every five years. If there is a problem at the time of inspection, hoses should be replaced IMMEDIATELY.
  2. Leaky refrigerators or ice machines. In order to help prevent water damage due to a leaky fridge, hoses should be inspected annually and replaced as needed.
  3. Leaky water heater plumbing! These too should be inspected annually and repaired or replaced at any signs of damage or fault.
  4. Clogged drain lines within an AC unit. Too many times does someone’s house flood due to a clogged drain line! To prevent a flooded house or water damage, air conditioning drain lines should be checked yearly.

Another VERY common reason for a water damage claim is due to leaving the bath tub water running. Everyone knows the amount of chaos that can entail getting every child bathed and ready for bed, so picture this. Mom turns the bath water on for the baby, walks to the other end of the house to find her two year old throwing baby powder all over the place! In all the chaos, mom forgot about the bath tub and started cleaning the powder up. Thirty minutes later, the whole east side of the house is flooded! So who does mom call once she finds the mess? Complete DKI!

Complete DKI is here to help you in your time of need! We specialize in emergency response to several types of emergency situations, water damage being one of them. Complete DKI can assist you with the mitigation and reconstruction process. Here at Complete DKI we take pride in our “A” rating with the BBB.

Lightning; everyone knows it as something that you thought was awesome, or it absolutely terrified you as a child. Lightning is defined as a massive electrostatic discharge between the electrically charged regions within clouds or between a cloud and the surface of something. When there is lightning, there is always a chance for fire.

Every year, lightning causes about 25,000 fires ranging from forest fires to house fires. Did you know that the amount of damage resulting from that many fires amounts to about 405 million dollars? Only about a fifth of those fires are house fires. Not so intimidating right? Not all lightning strikes have the potential to start a fire though. Some flashes contain something known as a continuing current. In a continuing current, the charge flows continuously over the surface which causes the object to heat up and quite possibly starting a fire.

Here are some fun facts about lightning:

  • A lightning bolt has a temperature of about 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit, that’s about 4 times the heat of the sun!
  • There are about 3 million lightning strikes a day! That means lightning strikes 40 times a second all over the world!
  • The “leader” drops in steps of about 150 feet each at about 136,000 mph. This happens until it almost reaches the ground. That’s when an electrical charge called a “streamer” rises up to meet it and complete the circuit.
  • Lightning struck about and killed 23 people in 2013. Which was a record low for lightning strikes since they’ve been recording data on it. A comparison would be the year 1943, 432 people were struck and killed.

If you have damage due to a lightning fire, give us a call at Complete DKI for all your cleanup and repair needs! You can reach us 24/7 at 850.CALL.DKI.
