Lemon Grove, CA is a city in San Diego County located in “East County.” As with many homes in the County, kitchens are particularly susceptible to kitchen fire smoke damage due to the nature of cooking, flames, and fires normally happening when preparing food. There are normally more electrical outlets, appliances, and chances for electrical fires in kitchens. Things such as a faulty electoral outlet, forgetting something on the stove, burnt food or contents in an oven, a malfunctioning refrigerator, etc are only a few examples of fires causes from within kitchen areas. We have the steps, personnel, and equipment needed to safely, quickly, and effectively clean your home after a kitchen fire to get it back to normal quickly.
