Smoke and Soot damage to the ceiling in this garage in Fayetteville Fayetteville Garage Fire

Fires damage garages in thousands of homes across America every year.  Garages attached to your home pose the greatest threat to keeping your family safe.  Everyday items like fuel cans, propane tanks, and lawn mowers are innocently stored in the garage.  These items are common causes of garage fires.  Contact SERVPRO of Fayetteville, Springdale, and South Washington County for all your fire clean up.

Flammable liquids, like lawn mower fuel and propane, are commonly stored in the garage.  Gasoline is a powerful accelerant for fire.  Gasoline fumes can be trapped in your garage, creating an environment for a house fire.  Storing your gas cans and propane bottles away from your home will help keep your family safe.

Lawn mowers are common causes of fires.  Fires start when fuel or oil is added to a very hot engine that has been in use.  The hot muffler can ignite the vapors and start your lawn mower on fire.  Fill your mower with gas and oil before starting to mow your lawn, preferably outside of the garage.  Wiping up fuel or oil spills and properly disposing of the rags will help prevent fires.  Remember to store your fuel and oil away from the mower.  There have been incidents of gas containers catching fire from a mower’s hot engine or muffler.
