What started out as a small kitchen fire turned out to be a larger problem for homeowners in Mt. Vernon, IL. SERVPRO of Carbondale/Marion was called in for their expertise in Fire Damage Claims. 

The fire started out small as food was left on and forgotten on the stove. The fire expanded up a wall and towards the ceiling before the homeowner noticed it. Large amounts of smoke filled up the kitchen and into an adjacent room before the homeowner was able to put it out with a fire extinguisher. 

SERVPRO of Carbondale/Marion came in and determined the extent of the damage and the best route to restore this home back to its original form. Upper cabinets would need to be replaced as well as sheetrock directly affected by the fire. Our team cleaned every square inch of the kitchen area ensuring the smoke damage was removed. Construction division came in to set new upper cabinets and trim work.
