4/12/2022 (Permalink)

Spring can bring lots of rainy weather and thunderstorms. Here are our top tips on how to prevent water damage and ensure your safety.

To keep your property safe:

  • Keep up with your home maintenance- replace missing shingles and loose siding to prevent water from leaking in and damaging your home. 
  • Check your sump pump- make sure it is in working order to prevent basement flooding.
  • Check for loose fence posts- anything that's not secured can be blown into your house by the wind and cause damage.
  • Trim your trees- make sure dead branches are removed to prevent them falling on your home or car. 
  • If bad thunderstorms are in the forecast, have a generator on hand for the event of a possible power outage and prepare and emergency kit with flashlights, batteries and a first aid kit. 

To keep you safe:

  • Check the forecast- be aware if a bad thunderstorm is predicted for your area.
  • When thunder roars, go indoors- try to get out of the storm and find shelter inside in the event of a thunderstorm.
  • Stay dry- do not shwer, wash dishes or run water during a thunderstorm and avoid bodies of water.

What is Asbestos?

An image of asbestos in an attic Insulation containing asbestos can be dangerous. Luckily, SERVPRO professionals are here to help with all your removal needs.

As a property owner you may find yourself asking, What is asbestos? Asbestos is fiberous crystals of silicate that are often used in atic and wall insulation due to its strength and ability to resist heat.

Ok, but why is it dangerous? Asbestos is dangerous because the long fiberous crystals that it is comprised of have the ability to break down into microscopically thin fibers. These fibers are so small they can remain airborne for days if they are disturbed. While airborne, individuals can breathe these fibers in. Since the fibers are so small, they can travel deep into a person’s lungs, where they may eventually lodge in the lung tissue. Once there, these fibers can cause several serious medical issues including asbestosis. For this reason, it is important to identify and remove asbestos in your home or workspace.

With our cutting-edge equipment and comprehensive training, the professionals at SERVPRO are here to help with all your asbestos removal needs.
