Holiday Home Fires

12/19/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Holiday Home Fires The devastation of a home fire can be unbearable. Having a preparedness guide and educating family members the importance of fire safety is key.

The U.S Fire Administration has studied that each year, nearly 47,000 fires occur during the holidays. The cost is around $554 million in property damages each winter season! Wow, that's a huge number! Not to mention, the American Red Cross has found a 10% rise in home fires since 2000. So what are some important preparedness tips to help insure your family's safety during the holiday season?

  • Place Christmas trees, candles, and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources (fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, heat vents, and candles).
  • Purchasing artificial trees can be safer than real trees sometimes. If you do purchase a real tree, make sure that the needles are freshly green and don't easily break. Keep live trees as hydrated as possible by giving them plenty of water.
  • Make sure that light strings and other holiday decorations are in good condition. Do not use anything with frayed electrical cords and always follow the manufacturers instructions.
  • Always unplug the tree and holiday lights before leaving your home, or going to bed. Purchasing a timer as well will work to shut off the lights.
  • Make sure candles are always blown out before leaving a room, or going to bed.
  • Use sturdy tree stands to avoid tipping over. Also, keep curious pets and children away from the tree, as they can easily fall.
  • Keep anything that can catch on fire (pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and towels or curtains) away from your stove top.

Now, last but certainly not least, your smoke alarms are extremely important to check! Use the test button each month, and replace the batteries at least once a year. (Helpful tip): Changing out the batteries when changing your clocks (if you have a time change), is a great way to remember, or try changing them every New Years Eve!

Have a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season!

Water Damage Knowledge

Water Damage Water Damage Knowledge It's time to call SERVPRO.

Florida is known for its excess humidity and short bursts of heavy rain showers. Problems with air conditioning units can also be troublesome. These systems run nearly every day, all year long. What do these two issues have to do with damages? They both present the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth. Additional water damage events can be caused by a washing machine overflowing, a sewer back-up, a nearby lake or river bank can overflow causing a flooding situation, as well as the many storms that move throughout the state. 
We at SERVPRO are happy to help homeowners and business owners with any water damage in Palm Coast. Our trained and IICRC certified professionals are available for 24/7 emergency water damage repair. We not only remove standing water that is visible but with our powerful vacuums and pumps, we can find and remove water that is hard to access. Our professional technicians are equipped with innovative air movers and dehumidifiers that will help to dry your business or home. 
We understand how water damage can be very devastating to property and how it negatively affects your life and work. We take the time to assess and inspect your damages. Our professionals can outline the best course of action. All standing water is considered contaminated water. We must identify the classification of water damage (clean, gray or black) to specify your restoration process. 
Our goal is to keep you as whole as possible - for your belongings and structure. We would much rather mitigate any water damage to keep your damages as repairs rather than replacements. Much of our restoration process can involve minor repairs or major repairs. This can involve drywall work, carpet installation or the reconstruction of the areas in your home or business. 
SERVPRO of Flagler County is a locally owned and operated company. We are strategically located within the community, which means that when you call us, we can be deployed quickly to your site. When water damage occurs, you are never alone - call us at (386)-447-2202. We work with you from beginning to end with a result to make you restored to a pre-water damage condition.
