Working from home may have you looking for more outlets to charge that phone, laptop, desk light, space heater, and whatever else you may need. As your fire safety experts, we’ve decided to provide a few tips to avoid a fire.

Please do NOT plug power strips into extension cords and do NOT plus extension cords into power strips.

Do NOT use an indoor extension cord outdoors! They're not built for outdoor elements and weather.

Don’t overload your power strip. There are light-duty power strips, medium-duty power strips as well as heavy-duty power strips. The light-duty ones are for things that require less amp usage, the medium-duty ones can hold a bit more than the light-duty ones and the heavy-duty ones can handle things like small appliances. 

Here at SERVPRO we always want to help you put your best foot forward to avoid any fire, water, or mold damage. In the event that you do experience water damage, we’re here to help!

One minute we can feel the spring weather approaching, the minute it’s below freezing. Many have decided to leave their thermostats set in one place and to use a space heater when it gets too cold in their homes. As fire damages specialists we’ve decided to provide you with a few space heater safety tips.

When taking naps or laying on the couch make sure you’re keeping your space heater at least 3 feet away from anything flammable.

When you go to purchase a space heater try to get one with overheat protection that way it can self shut down especially in the event it tips over.

Never block a walkway or exit with your space heater especially if you have kids or pets.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, two in five deaths in space heater fires involve electric space heaters. 

If you or someone you know experiences a fire don’t hesitate to give us a call at 706-965-7378!

Ice Dam? What are they!

1/7/2022 (Permalink)

What is an Ice Dam?  Have you ever heard of them?  How does an Ice Dam affect you?  Here at SERVPRO we can answer those questions for you. 

An Ice Dam is when ice accumulates on the lower part of your roof.  This can cause other water on the roof to get trapped and build up.  It does not allow for that water to roll off the roof and instead find its way under the shingles and into your attic and/or walls.  It might take a while before you are aware of the water issue, which can cause a lot of damage.  As we enter the coldest part of the year, please make sure to look at your roof after freezing rain, ice or snow.

SERVPRO is ready to help you with all your needs to any size disaster.  Remember to call us for any size disaster you might have.

We have a pro for all your needs!

How to predict rain fall?

7/20/2021 (Permalink)

Seems like we’ve had about 3 weeks of rain off and on, but more on than off. It has many of us thinking how can we predict rainfall? Well, according to weather.com Nimbostratus clouds and Cumulonimbus clouds, are the two most common forms of clouds that produce rain.

Dictionary.com describes nimbostratus clouds as a cloud of a class characterized by a formless layer that is almost uniformly dark gray; a rain cloud of the layer type, of low altitude, usually below 8,000 feet (2,440 meters).

They also describe cumulonimbus clouds as a cloud of a class indicative of thunderstorm conditions, characterized by large, dense towers that often reach altitudes of 30,000 feet (9,000 meters) or more, cumuliform except for their tops, which appear fibrous because of the presence of ice crystals: occurs as a single cloud or as a group with merged bases and separate tops.

Weather.com tells us that nimbostratus clouds Hang low in the sky, and they appear dark and grey. While the cumulonimbus clouds are shaped like a mountain, with a dark grey base - this type of cloud is a thunderstorm cloud. These clouds also produce hail and tornadoes.

If you see clouds like such that have been described above you can bet your bottom dollar it’s going to rain. What can make it even worse is that sometimes rain finds its way into your home and/or business. No worries, as water damage specialists, we have the experience, expertise, and advanced training that enables us to get your property dried quickly and thoroughly. We use scientific drying principles and provide validation and documentation that your property is dry and the job is complete. Learn about our water damage training and certificates.
