Water Damage SERVPRO Offers Tips to Protect Your Pipes This Holiday Season SERVPRO wishes you a wonderful holiday season!

As Autumn descends into Winter, temperatures really begin to plummet and storms become more frequent. Before it gets too cold to take precautions, now is the time to prepare. SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo has a few tips to prevent your pipes from freezing—these important tips can help you prevent water damage from harming your home or business.

How to Protect Pipes From Freezing

  • Drain water from swimming pool and water sprinkler supply lines.
  • Drain and bring all your outdoor hoses to inside storage (garage, shed, etc.).
  • Close all valves that supply outdoor hose bibs.
  • Insulate your attics, basements and crawl spaces. Insulation will keep these areas warmer.
  • Sometimes water supply lines are located in unheated areas. Check garages and under kitchen and bathroom cabinets. All pipes in these areas should be insulated/wrapped.
  • Consider installing pipe sleeves or installing heat tape on exposed water pipes. Even something as simple as newspaper can provide some protection to exposed pipes, at just ¼” thickness.
  • Consider relocating exposed pipes to provide increased protection from freezing.

How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

  • If there are any water supply lines in the garage, keep garage doors closed.
  • To allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing, open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors.
  • When it’s EXTREMELY cold outside, let water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running even the smallest trickle of water helps prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Set thermostat to the same temperature 24/7. You might end up with a higher heating bill, but by temporarily ceasing lower nighttime temperatures, you could prevent a much more expensive repair job if pipes freeze and burst.

We at SERVPRO hope these tips help you enjoy a safe, disaster-free Winter and beyond. Although restoration after water damage, smoke damage and fire disasters may be our specialty, we don’t wish them upon anyone. But if they occur, SERVPRO is ready for whatever happens, 24/7.

Fire Damage Fall is Here! Don't Let Fire Safety Fall Short! Here are a Few Important Tips from SERVPRO: As Leaves Fall and Temperatures Drop, Autumn Brings with it Many Changes

As cooler fall weather moves in, SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo & Atascadero reminds you to keep electrical safety in mind. Here are a few safety tips to help you stay safe as things cool down:

  • Safely store warm weather tools like lawn mowers and trimmers. BE CAREFUL not to park a lawn mower or other motorized tool with a hot engine near fallen leaves as they may ignite, causing a fire.
  • ALWAYS check cold weather tools, such as leaf and snow blowers, along with their power cords, for unusual wear and tear. Repair or replace worn tools or parts right away.
  • ALWAYS unplug and safely store battery chargers when not in use.
  • Use ONLY weatherproof electrical devices for outside activities. Protect outdoor electrical devices from moisture.
  • Keep dry leaves swept AWAY from outdoor lighting, outlets and power cords.
  • Make sure electric blankets are in good repair. Power cords should not be frayed, cracked or cut. If you see ANY visible damage to an electric blanket, it should be properly disposed of immediately.
  • NEVER tuck an electric blanket under mattresses or children, and NEVER put anything, on top of an electric blanket while it is in use. This includes other blankets and/or comforters/bedspreads.
  • The same advice re electric blankets can be said for heating pads. Heating pads and electric blankets cause almost 500 fires each year. Almost all of these fires involve electric blankets that are more than ten years old.

We at SERVPRO hope these tips help you enjoy a safe, disaster-free Autumn and beyond. Restoration after smoke, fire and water disasters may be our specialty, but we don’t wish them upon anyone. But if they occur, SERVPRO is ready for whatever happens, 24/7.

SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo Talks Turkey About the Dangers of Deep Frying

10/2/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo Talks Turkey About the Dangers of Deep Frying Happy Thanksgiving from all of us SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to talk turkey. Particularly, deep-fried turkey. If you’ve ever had it, you know how good it tastes. If you haven’t, well, you haven’t lived. Not only is it much faster to cook, but the flavor & moisture that results is amazing! BUT, there is some risk to preparing your bird this way, namely FIRE. The only thing faster than deep frying a turkey is how fast your holiday can be ruined if a fire results at your home. SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo has a few tips to prevent that from happening:

  •  Make sure the turkey isn't frozen—in fact, make sure that the turkey is COMPLETELY thawed. Oil and water do not mix. Dropping an unthawed turkey in hot oil can cause flames to ignite and spread through your home and property.
  • Do NOT stuff the turkey before deep-frying or use any water-based marinades when deep-frying.
  • Keep the frying at a distance—at least 10 feet away from the house, not inside any enclosures like a garage or a shed, and not under a porch or eaves.
  • Keep a close watch on the deep-fryer. It only takes a moment of inattention to end up with fire damage, smoke damage, and/or even water damage if the Fire Department has to show up with their hoses!
  • Keep children away from the deep-fryer. Oil burns are especially dangerous.

We at SERVPRO hope these tips help you enjoy a safe, disaster-free Thanksgiving and holiday season. Although restoration after water damage, smoke damage and fire disasters may be our specialty, we don’t wish them upon anyone. But if they occur, SERVPRO is ready for whatever happens, 24/7.

September is National Preparedness Month

Community September is National Preparedness Month Water damage and fire damage preparation

?Disasters happen, prepare now, learn how?
Local SERVPRO disaster recovery specialist offers San Luis Obispo property owners tips for preparing for, surviving, and recovering from the unexpected

San Luis Obispo, CA (Grassroots Newswire) August 28, 2018 - Local disaster restoration specialist Joseph Powers, owner of SERVPRO® of San Luis Obispo, reminds San Luis Obispo property owners that September is National Preparedness Month. This annual event, sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), provides families and businesses with the information and resources they need to plan for, react to, survive, and recover from an emergency, before the emergency happens. (https://www.ready.gov/september)

For National Preparedness Month 2018, themed ?Disasters happen, prepare now, learn how,? FEMA has prepared a week-by-week calendar of recommended actions property owners can take to be ready if disaster does strike:

Week 1. Create an emergency plan that includes signing up for emergency alerts and making contingency plans for shelter, evacuation, and family communication.

Week 2. Learn life-saving skills. CPR is a good place to start, but also be certain you know how to turn off the utilities in your home and ensure your smoke and CO detectors are properly installed and working.

Week 3. Check your insurance coverage. Once the emergency is over, appropriate and sufficient insurance will be key to getting your life back to normal, or at least on track.

Week 4. Plan financially for the possibility of a disaster. This goes beyond having a ?rainy day fund? for immediate needs. Gather and organize important home, business, insurance, financial, and personal documents and keep them up-to-date and stored in a secure, water-and-fire proof location.

?There?s a difference between surviving a disaster and recovering from a disaster,? says Powers. ?Families and businesses who take the time to create both a short- and long-term plan to deal with the unexpected are better able to respond quickly if the unexpected happens, which can improve their chances of survival. Having key information at their fingertips in the aftermath of the emergency can set them on the path to recovery more quickly and with less stress.?

Because SERVPRO recognizes a fast response is critical in any emergency, Powers reminds San Luis Obispo-area commercial and residential property owners they can download the SERVPRO READY app for free at https://ready.SERVPRO.com/home/mobileapp. The app allows users to store essential contact and property information electronically, where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds, right from the scene, if disaster strikes. For local business owners who designate SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider, SERVPRO professionals will conduct a no-cost assessment of their facility, help the owner complete a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP), and store that profile in the READY app.

?SERVPRO disaster cleanup and restoration specialists are ready to respond to emergencies big and small,? said Powers. ?From SERVPRO?s Disaster Recovery Team, a group of elite large-loss specialists, prequalified and strategically positioned throughout the United States to handle any size disaster, to local SERVPRO professionals like SERVPRO of San Luis Obispo, we specialize in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping make it ?Like it never even happened? for both commercial and residential customers.?

Avoid Disaster! SERVPRO Offers Fire Safety Tips for Your BBQ Grilling This Summer

6/5/2018 (Permalink)

SUMMER IS HERE!!! Time to crank up that barbeque grill! Keep in mind, however, that a grill can be a fire hazard. They can be very hot, causing burn injuries. Placed too close to other flammable objects, they can become an ignition source resulting in a deck or house fire or wildfire. Follow these simple tips and you will be on the way to safe grilling.

SAFETY TIPS

  • Only use propane and charcoal BBQ grills outdoors.
  • Place the grill well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Children and pets should be kept at least three feet away from the grill.
  • Your grill should be kept clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
  • Never leave a grill unattended—they can flare up in an instant.
  • Before lighting it, always make sure your gas grill lid is open.

CHARCOAL GRILLS

  • There are several ways to prepare the charcoal. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start the charcoal using newspaper as a fuel.
  • If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids directly to the fire. Do not EVER use gasoline.
  • There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord that is rated for outdoor use.
  • When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposal—always dispose of them in a metal container.
  • Keep charcoal fluid away from heat sources an out of the reach of children.

PROPANE GRILLS

  • Before using it for the first time each year, always check the gas tank hose for leaks. Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose. A propane leak will release bubbles. If you can smell gas, and/or if the “soapy bubble test” is actively releasing bubbles, your grill has a gas leak. If there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak does not stop, clear the area and call the fire department. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not move the grill.
  • If the flame goes out, turn the grill and gas off and wait at least 5 minutes before re-lighting it.

We at SERVPRO hope these tips help you enjoy a safe, disaster-free summer and beyond. Restoration after smoke, fire and water disasters may be our specialty, but we don’t wish them upon anyone. But if they occur, SERVPRO is ready for whatever happens, 24/7.

Disaster Response Professionals outline holiday home fire prevention guidelines

General Disaster Response Professionals outline holiday home fire prevention guidelines Restoration Services

Local Disaster Response Professional Says Keep the Focus on Fire Prevention for a Safe and Joyous Holiday Season SERVPRO® restoration specialist outlines holiday home fire prevention guidelines.

San Luis Obispo, CA (Grassroots Newswire) November 29, 2017 --

The American Red Cross (ARC) cites statistics from the U.S. Fire Administration1 showing nearly 47,000 fires occur during the winter holidays, claiming more than 500 lives, causing more than 2,200 injuries, and costing $554 million in property damage. Joseph Powers of SERVPRO® of San Luis Obispo cautions home owners to follow some important ARC guidelines for holiday decorating and entertaining to make sure that the glow in their holiday celebrations is from twinkling lights and not a costly and potentially deadly fire.

Place Christmas trees and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, heat vents, and candles.

Purchase flame-retardant metallic or artificial trees. If you purchase a real tree, make sure that it has fresh, green needles that aren't easily broken. Keep live trees as moist 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 manufacturer's instructions.

If you are celebrating Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, keep flammable items, including curtains and holiday decorations, at least three feet away from your candles. Place your menorah or kinara on a non-flammable surface, such as a tray lined with aluminum foil, to catch the melting candle wax. Never leave lit candles unattended.

Ensure all candles and smoking materials are properly extinguished after guests leave and always unplug tree and holiday lights before leaving home or going to bed.

If, in spite of all your precautions, a fire does break out, the most important thing you can do to help save lives is to install and maintain smoke alarms throughout your property, says Powers. Having a working smoke alarm reduces everyone's chances of dying in a fire by nearly half.

Powers notes that the ARC is joining with fire departments and community groups nationwide  to deliver and install a limited number of free smoke alarms in homes for those in need. Contact your local ARC chapter for more information.

The disaster response professionals at SERVPRO, a leader and provider of fire and water cleanup and restoration services, witness the devastation that home fires can cause far too often. 

They also know that when fire causes a loss of life, there is no remediation possible. To keep the focus on fire prevention, rather than fire restoration,  SERVPRO has teamed up with the American Red Cross by supporting the ARC Disaster Responder program, and in particular the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign.

As a Disaster Responder, SERVPRO pledges dollars and support in advance to help the ARC develop and distribute educational materials and respond immediately when they are needed.

As a SERVPRO professional, I know that even the most diligent fire prevention planning can't prevent all home fires. That's why fire safety planning, like installing and maintaining smoke detectors and having a family escape plan, is also important, says Powers. If a fire does break out in your home this holiday season, make sure all your family members follow this life-saving advice from the ARC: Get Out, Stay Out, and Call for Help.

Paso Robles Water Damage Company SERVPRO Releases a Report on the Categories and Classes of Water Damage

Water Damage Paso Robles Water Damage Company SERVPRO Releases a Report on the Categories and Classes of Water Damage Water Damage Paso Robles

SERVPRO, a Paso Robles water damage company, has just released a report that describes the different categories and classes of water damage.

It is important for property owners to know that what might seem like a small leak, might actually be more threatening than a larger leak. The potential water damage in Paso Robles homes and buildings can be categorized by the source of the water. Bathroom water damage from a leaking toilet, for example, has black water health hazards that a leaky bathtub might not have. Black water damage in Paso Robles and everywhere else, is extremely unsanitary and requires special handling.

Keep reading to see the full report.

The Categories and Classes of Water Damage

Despite what many people think, not all home water damage is created equal. There are actually a number of different classes and categories of water damage. According the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification), there are three categories of water/liquid and four classes of the damage.

Category 1 – This is basically any liquid from a clean and/or sanitary source like a faucet, a toilet, or fountain.

Category 2 – This refers to liquid/water that used to be called grey water, which can potentially cause illness if ingested. This includes things like dishwasher or washing machine overflow, toilet overthrow or sink drains.

Category 3 – This category used to be called black water, and is the most dangerous of the three. It is extremely unsanitary that could cause severe illness or even death. This includes sewer backup, flooding from rivers, and stagnant liquid that has fostered bacterial growth.

Now let’s look at the classes.

Class 1 – This is very easy to deal with and only affects a part of a single room, with little to no wet carpet, with water only on surfaces like wood or concrete.

Class 2 – This class effects and entire room, and wetness has went up the walls about 12” or more, with moisture still in the structure.

Class 3 – This class basically means that ceiling, walls, carpet and insulation are all saturated with liquid or water. This is often due to water coming from overhead.

Class 4 – This class means that there has been enough water or time to saturate materials with very low levels of permeation, like hardwood or stone.

Have water damage or just have any questions about it? If so, reach out to the Paso Robles water damage company SERVPRO. They have been helping customers with water damage (and other types of restoration) for many decades. They feel confident in their abilities, work ethic and skills to help with almost any restoration or cleaning job.

Los Osos Water Damage Company SERVPRO Releases a Report on the Effects of Water Damage To a Home

Water Damage Los Osos Water Damage Company SERVPRO Releases a Report on the Effects of Water Damage To a Home Los Osos water damage

Recently, Los Osos water damage company SERVPRO has released a report on the effects that water damage can have on a home.

This report can help property owners and tenants recognize the early signs of water damage in Los Osos buildings. Accidents happen, but early detection can prevent expensive repairs or construction in buildings with water damage in Los Osos or any where on the Central Coast. Getting the experts from SERVPRO in to take care of the damage as soon as possible is much less expensive that waiting.

Read below to check out the full report.

The Effects of Water Damage To a Home

Water damage is a problem that most home owners fear, but the reality can actually be worse than most people imagine, if it is not dealt with quickly. If left alone or unnoticed, the effects of water damage can be horrific and can leave people’s homes in shambles. Here are a few of the effects of water damage on a home if left alone for too long.

Ruin the Structure of the Home

One of the largest and worst effects of having water damage in a home is that it can ruin the structure of a home. Water seeping into the walls, floors and ceiling in a house can weaken the integrity and make it more prone to sagging, tearing or even collapsing. The best way to ensure this never happens is to not only get the water damage looked after quick, but also to have it looked at by a professional.

A Lenghty Restoration Process

If a home has been severely damaged by water, it will prevent people from living there due to the damage and condition that everything is in. Also, if the damage was long enough (and restoration will take a while), it could keep people from their home for even days or weeks. This is why a professional should be contacted ASAP, to ensure that the mess can be cleaned up quickly, as the longer the water sits and the more damage that is done, the longer the restoration will take.

Mold and Bacteria Growth

Sitting water and bacteria growth go hand in hand. If people have ever dealt with mold, they will say it is terrible and gross. It looks bad, smells bad and can even damage the structure of a home. This growth can also be terrible for a person’s health, so it should be dealt with as soon as it is spotted.

Worried about water damage or have any questions? If so, be sure to call or contact Los Osos water damage company SERVPRO. The company has over 1,000 franchises across the world and the company has been around for over 50 year. They are known for their great service, hard work, and dedication to their craft and customers.
