Spring Thunderstorms are on Their Way!

Storm Damage Spring Thunderstorms are on Their Way! Stormy Weather Ahead!

Winter is finally coming to an end, so you know what that means: spring thunderstorms are right around the corner, and now is the perfect time to get ready. Stormy weather conditions in the springtime are wildly unpredictable, but can emerge out of nowhere in a moments notice, so it's important to be prepared for when they do. When word breaks that a storm is incoming this season, make sure to take all of the necessary precautions to ensure that your home will be safest after it passes.

Lightning strikes can cause your home massive amounts of damage, even if lightning doesn't hit your home at all! Power surges to your home could result in personal injury if you are using an electrical device or appliance at the time of a lightning strike. Not to mention the chance that a power surge could send a home device up in flames, resulting in a dangerous and costly house fire! To prevent these type of scenarios, installing a panel or meter serge protector, purchasing and using outlet protectors, or even just unplugging devices and small appliances during a storm could save you an unwanted home devastation this spring.

Aside from lightning strikes, the high winds and heavy rains could also cause you problems with water and structural damages. Prevention, depending on the caliber of the storm, is sometimes impossible; however, some basic tips can give you some added protection for when mother nature makes her way to your town. Making sure all of your doors and windows, are completely sealed when closed is massively important. Even the smallest leaks can wreak havoc. Cleaning your gutters regularly and maintaining your roof regularly will also reduce your risk of large loss during a storm. All water damages are preventable and making sure your roof and gutter are both clean and structurally well is half the battle.

While it is nearly impossible to predict when tragedy will occur, it is SERVPRO of Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton 's job to provide 24-hour emergency service when it does. We are dedicated to being faster to any-sized disaster and can respond immediately to your storm-related issues in your home or business.

Preventing Tree Fires This Holiday Season

12/15/2017 (Permalink)

The National Fire Protection Association reports that between 2007-2011, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 230 home fires that started with Christmas trees per year. These fires caused an average of six deaths, 22 injuries, and $18.3 million in direct property damage annually. Here are some tips to help prevent a fire in your home this holiday season:

  • Choose a tree with fresh needles
  • Cut 2" from the base of the trunk before placing
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from ANY heat source (fireplace, radiator, candles, heaters, lights, etc.).
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.
  • Add water DAILY
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections
  • Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.
  • Last but not least, dispose of your tree as soon as the holidays pass. It might be decorative and fun, but the longer a dry, dying tree sits in your house, the more likely your home is to experience and suffer a fire loss.

Winter Weather and Your Home

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Winter Weather and Your Home Snow accumulation leads to roof collapse.

The frigid temperatures of the winter months pose the potential to cause serious damage to your home. Not only is your home at risk of water freezing and bursting pipes, but the roof of your home is susceptible to water damage due to the formation of ice dams, and damage from snow accumulation. Broken pipes pose a common and costly issue, but ice dams and snow accumulation also carry a serious damage risk. 

Ice dams form at the edges of the roof when the heat in the attic causes snow on the roof to melt, which in turn refreezes at the gutters. Regularly cleaning your gutters and properly insulating/ventilating your attic help reduce the risk of forming ice dams. In addition to routine gutter maintenance in the winter, it is important to clean off your roof when snowfall has accumulated over 6 inches. This will help prevent heavy snow collapsing your roof and costly damages occurring inside of your home. Be careful to stay on the ground when attempting to clear your roof, otherwise, hire a professional to clear it for you.

These types of retroactive maintenance on your home give you as a homeowner the best odds of making it through the winter without issue. However, should you find yourself in a jam due to unexpected winter damages this upcoming season, SERVPRO has your back.

Mold Remediation Sick Facts About Mold Large patch of mold in downstairs bathroom; Absecon, NJ.

While is extremely difficult to say definitively the amount of homes in the US that have mold infestation, studies done have found evidence supporting that an estimated 50-70% of American households carry water damage and mold. This is no small matter as people who are exposed to mold are 30% to 50% more at risk of asthma and a multitude of respiratory infections. Even short-term mold exposure can have severe effects on ones body. In many cases of exposure there have been symptoms of sinus inflammation and irritation, nausea, asthma flare-ups, headaches, and even skin infections.

These health issues caused by exposure to the bio-toxins produced by mold are the reason why any evidence of mold damage should be acted upon immediately.
