The spring weather is amazing and is bringing life back to Elk Point, SD. With Easter nearby, you may be looking forward to hosting your entire family for dinner in your home. This year, the family has decided to fry a ham and grill vegetables outdoors. Everything is ready, but do you know how to protect your home from possible fire damage? Follow these simple steps from the fire restoration experts at ServiceMaster of Sooland to keep your yard and home fire damage free during your Easter family fun.


  • Make sure your yard is free of debris. While cleaning the inside of your home, make sure you take time to clean the outside—your yard and driveway—to clear them of any debris. While the ground may still be wet from winter’s snow, any dried sticks, paper, or grass on top of the ground can still cause an accidental blaze. It takes just one wayward piece of ash or coal to start flames that result in fire damage.
  • Isolate your fryer. You need to make sure that your fryer is isolated and that there isn’t anything around that can catch fire with the splash of hot oil. When frying food, the fryer oil can get between 375 and 440°F. Not only can this cause burns, but it can also cause fire damage if it lands on the wrong material. You also want to make sure your fryer is isolated in case it or the food inside explodes. The last thing you want or need for Easter is a ham being shot into your home from an exploding fryer.
