Most people don't think about how much the ocean salt air can damage a home on the beach and cause a water intrusion.  

These damages can do a large amount of damage inside the home through the smallest hole in the siding or stucco.

Kitchen Fire

Kitchen Fire Kitchen Fire

Most every home cooks at least one meal a day in their kitchen. Pots and Pans can easily overheat and catch fire. Not cleaning your kitchen equipment can also cause a fire. Build up of grease and grime on your kitchen equipment can expedite the fire and do a multitude more of damage. 

Many kitchens are electric but there are still some gas stoves, which can also expedite the fire. 

A kitchen fire does not always affect only a kitchen. If the home is not well maintained it can quickly spread throughout the home and take over the entire residence. 

Even if the fire does not take over the entire home it will still affect the home. Smoke and soot will go throughout the house and into the duct work leaving lasting effects if not cleaned properly. 

Luckily at SERVPRO we do everything from beginning to end. We can pack out the home while cleaning it effectively and taking out any unsalvageable areas as well. Once everything have been removed and is safe again we will put new material back and bring in your cleaned belongings again.

Is that plugged in?

Getting ready often leaves us worried if we unplugged the curling iron or flat iron. We always double and triple check that it is off and unplugged. Perhaps this is a generational thing as now most appliances like this turn themselves off after a set amount of time. 

Appliances you should be worried be worried about are candle warmers, lights with faulty wiring, or laptops covered up. These things when they become overheated can quickly become a hazard. They can either melt or catch on fire. Depending on how dirty or clean the home is can lead to how fast the fire catches and how far it goes within the home. It is important to keep your home clean as well as take are of your appliances appropriately. 

If a fire does happen in your home or business SERVPRO is here to get you back to normal, "Like it never even happened."

Have you checked under your sink?

2/3/2021 (Permalink)

Have you checked under your bathroom sink lately? Most of us shove as much stuff as we can underneath our sink and rarely move them to check around and behind them. 

When you have that much stuffed underneath your sink it is hard to know if you have a small leak or growth from excess moisture built up. 

You should move everything out from underneath the sink at minimum once a month, clean it and check to make sure there is not a build up of moisture or a small leak. 

Checking underneath your sink may seem like a small unnecessary thing to do, however they need to be done. If there is a small leak that goes unnoticed it could cause a large issue with mold down the road. 

If you happen to find a leak and water or mold damage is apparent give us a call to remediate it or give a quote.

Duct What?

2/1/2021 (Permalink)

When homeowners and business owners think about running their homes and businesses duct cleaning is not at the forefront of their mind. While duct cleanings may not seem very important if not done on time they could reek havoc down the line. 

Duct cleanings should be done annually. Winter and fall are the best times to have these services done. These times of the year are less busy for businesses and easier to close for a day or half day depending on the size of the business and building. 

If not done on time it could cause a backup of dust, dirt, lint, and moisture. If these things are left alone for an unknown amount of times it could cause a fire or growth and mildew that could grow harmful.  

We love to see return customers and would love to set up an appointment for your home or business for a duct cleaning today. Give us a call to get on the schedule today!

Are you prepared?

Preparing for a storm is a lot like an athlete preparing in the off season to be ready for the big game. You have to be prepared before the storm comes, not when it is upon you. 

During the off season of storms is the most important to check things such as your generator, breakers, change out old gas for new, and food and water stores for your pets and family members. 

On your list you should consider shelf stable food that can last and be available for when you need it. You should also make sure you always have an extra weeks work of vital medications for anyone in your family.  

You should also make sure everyone in your family has enough clothing to be warm. 

Finally you should make sure you have back-up batteries for anything that may need it such as a radio, phone, insulin pump, or oxygen tank.  

While there is little to no demand for the storms goods you need it is the perfect time to stock up and make sure you and your family are ready come storm season.

Tropical Storm Eta

11/12/2020 (Permalink)

Are you prepared for Storm Eta? With this tropical storm upon us it is time to be prepared. We are nearing the end of storm season, however there are still a few concerning weather patterns hovering out in the ocean. Here are a few things to expect and be prepared for as this storm closes in on our areas. 

  • Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and fast-moving water can sweep your vehicle away. Be extra careful when walking outside. Storm damage such as downed power lines and fallen debris could injure you.
  • 6 hours before arrival. Close storm shutters if possible and stay away from windows. Flying glass from broken windows could injure you. Turn your refrigerator or freezer to the coldest setting and open only when necessary. If you lose power, food will last longer.
  • 6 to 12 hours before arrival. Turn on your TV/radio, or check your local government’s website frequently. You’ll get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions. Charge your phone. You’ll have a full battery if you lose power.
  • 12 to 36 hours before arrival. Bring in outdoor furniture and other items that could blow away. These may become a safety hazard. Bookmark your local government’s website. This gives you quick access to storm updates and emergency instructions.
  • 36 to 48 hours before arrival. Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit. Include a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.

In the future as a storm is coming make sure that you are stocked up on all the necessities such as baby diapers, medicine, enough food and water for you, your family, and your pets. Also make sure that anything valuable is not plugged in at the time the storm hits, or if it is, make sure it is plugged into a surge protector. 

If you or any neighbors are affected by the storm please reach out to us for remediation. We would be happy to come out and take a look for you!
