STORIES OF A PAINTING CONTRACTOR PT. 6

Did you know that paint can cause a house or business to catch on fire? Sure can! Well it was the early 1990’s and we were painting an exterior cedar sided home in Solon. At that time I hired two brothers to do the majority of our spray jobs. (They were quite good, by the way) Well the customer wanted “Oil stain” to be applied to his dry brittle cedar sided home. The painters were using a old gasoline powered sprayer that you had to start like a lawnmower. Well when the spark plug “arked”…..POOF…..it ignited the newly sprayed “Oil stain” that was being applied to the house and caught the house on fire! The brother that was spraying the house was covered with stain and he too…..ALSO caught fire! Meanwhile, the other brother freaked out and started to put the house fire out first…..then his brother LATER! (Some brother!)

I happened to be driving by to check on the job and noticed a fire truck and an ambulance parked across the street from the house we were painting. I noticed a little girl riding her bike and asked what was going on? She said “Oh there was a fire in someones house and somebody got hurt” I asked “Which house” She explained “Oh the one where the guys were painting” Thankfully there was only smoke damage done to the house but the “burnt brother had 2nd and 3rd degree burns to his chest, arms and neck. The next day, I noticed he was out of the house and back on the job! I said “Mark, if I was you, I’d take AT LEAST a week off of work” He replied “Well……I NEED the money”……Now THATS dedication!
