Outdoor Events

Summer is here! It's the perfect time for outdoor parties, family get-togethers, and BBQ's. Something most of us don't consider is that outdoor events increase the risk of home fires according to the National Fire Protection Association. Luckily, they've provided us a list of tips to consider when hosting an outdoor event.

  • Have an adult present at all times when a portable fireplace is burning
  • Use sturdy candle holders that won't tip over easily
  • Keep anything that can burn, as well as children and pets, at least three feet away from open flames
  • Use battery-operated, flameless candles and solar-powered patio or tiki torches in place of an open flame

In the case your outdoor event doesn't go as planned, SERVPRO of University Place/Lakewood West is ready to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We proud ourselves in being on site within 4 hours of our first notice of your loss. For your fire restoration needs, contact us at 253-896-3000.
