Bonfire Safety

10/14/2020 (Permalink)

Now that fall is here, that means bonfires for many people. It’s nice to keep warm and cozy next to a bonfire with your family and friends. Unfortunately, many people do not realize how dangerous bonfires can be. Stay safe around your bonfire with these tips: 

  • Wet down any grass in the area surrounding the fire.
  • Have a live hose or water supply nearby.
  • Select a site away from trees, bushes, and man-made structures.
  • Be wary of nearby dead grass, dry leaves, branches, and bark.
  • Keep small children a reasonable distance from the fire.
  • Never start a bonfire with accelerants like lighter fluid, gasoline, or kerosene.
  • Tinder, kindling, and wood should be the only materials in your fire and should be strategically placed.
  • Start putting out your fire at least 20 minutes before you plan to leave the area.

If fire or smoke damage has impacted your home or business, please call SERVPRO of Licking County at 740-587-0938. Let our professional team do the cleanup with the proper procedures to keep you, your home or company safe.

Does Your Licking County Home Have A Mold Problem?

10/1/2020 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

National Preparedness Month

9/1/2020 (Permalink)

September is National Preparedness Month and we've learned a lot from our disaster recovery work over the years. Learn how you can plan for when disaster strikes by reading the following residential and commercial tips. 

Residential: 

  • In case of power loss during a storm, turn your refrigerator and freezer to their coldest setting. Don’t eat food that has warmed past 40° F. 
  • Install storm shutters ahead of time to protect vulnerable windows. If a storm is approaching, temporary plywood shutters will work in a pinch. 
  • Take shelter in an inferior, lower-level room away from windows, doors and skylights during a severe storm. 
  • If you lose power, unplug electrical appliances to prevent potential damage from a power surge once electricity is restored. 
  • Bring valuable items upstairs to protect from flood damage. 
  • If you hear thunder, hold off on showering until the storm passes. Lightning can travel through metal pipes and shock on contact. 

Commercial:

  • Turn off all utilities at the main switches or valves when instructed to do so. (Gas and electric shut off) Board up windows prior to forecasted high wind storm events, such as hurricanes. 
  • Disconnect all electrical equipment and appliances. Raise elevators (if applicable) from the bottom floor. 
  • Ensure your server is protected and backed up in another location. 
  • Employee safety should always be your first priority. Account for all employees by establishing evacuation plans in advance, identifying areas outside the building that are designated meeting places. 
  • Contact your local SERVPRO Franchise to set up an Emergency Response Profile (ERP), which outlines every step of your emergency plan in any situation.

If storm damage has impacted your home or business, please call SERVPRO of Licking County at 740-587-0938. Let our professional team do the cleanup with the proper procedures to keep you, your home or company safe.
