Older Homes in Atlantic City, NJ Area Have Higher Risk of Fire

3/29/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Older Homes in Atlantic City, NJ Area Have Higher Risk of Fire Older Homes Are at Greater Risk of Having Fires

If your house is more than 40 years old, it can harbor some unseen fire risks. If you learn about them ahead of time, you can take action to prevent a fire from starting—and keep your home sweet home safe for many more years to come.

Outdated Wiring

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there are about 46,000 fires involving home electrical systems each year, and the majority of those could be prevented with a routine inspection. The CPSC says that in many cases, homes that were built between 40 and 100 years ago hadn't been inspected since they were built.

Be alert to obvious warning signs of a failing electrical system:

  • flickering or dim lights
  • a shrinking of your television picture
  • frequent power outages
  • sparks
  • unusual sounds like sizzles or burning smells
  • smoke
  • any kind of electrical shock
  • damaged insulation
  • warm or hot outlets or switches
  • reliance on extension cords for everyday use

For Fire Restoration Needs Call SERVPRO of Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton @ 609-965-0885

If you can't remember the last time your electrical system was inspected, hire a certified electrician or electrical inspector to prevent a potential disaster. Even if you've had an inspection less than a decade ago, you should contact a professional immediately if you start to notice the warning signs of a bad electrical system. Hire only a Licensed Electrician to do electrical work.

Balloon Framing

In newer homes, each floor is individually constructed to ensure that fire stops between them, but in balloon-frame homes, there's nothing to stop a fire from spreading. Commonly used from the late 1800s through about 1940, balloon framing was a construction method in which a continuous wood stud wall stretched all the way from the foundation of a home to the attic. If your home has balloon framing, flames can spread from the floor to the roof in just seconds.

If you aren’t sure what kind of framing your house has, hire a skilled professional to inspect it. If your home was constructed with balloon framing, a major remodel—to open up the walls and ceilings and install solid blocking to act as fire stops—may be your only option. Alternatively, you may be able to install insulation in empty cavities that would slow or prevent the spread of fire.

Protect Your Mays Landing Business this Winter

Commercial Protect Your Mays Landing Business this Winter Don't Let Winter Weather Slow Down Your Business

The frigid temperatures of the winter months pose the potential to cause serious damage to your business. Not only is your business at risk of water freezing and bursting pipes, but the roof of your business 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 business. 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 business give you as a business owner 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.
