Fall is in the air !

General Fall is in the air ! The beautiful colors of Fall.

It’s finally Fall!!! The fall season brings colors and an abundance of outdoor activities. Plan ahead this season to help ensure it is safe and fire-free. Here are a few tips for this fall to make sure that we keep fall fire-free.

  • Keep Fall decorations away from open flames and heat sources, including light bulbs and heaters.
  • Keep emergency exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes.
  • Teach children to stay away from open flames and make sure they know in case of a fire to stop, drop and roll if they are in a situation in which their clothes may catch on fire.
  • It is safest to use a flashlight or battery-operated candle in a jack-o-lantern. Place lit pumpkins away from anything that can burn and out of the ways of doorsteps, walkways and yards.

Mold

9/26/2017 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

WATER: Steps on Making a claim for your water damage

Water Damage WATER: Steps on Making a claim for your water damage Flooding in Commercial Building due to a leaking pipe in the bathroom on the second floor

The process for making a claim for water damage is pretty much the same for flood or non-flood damage.

  1. Stop the water flow or leaks if possible.
    • Of course, if your home is flooded by a raging river, that is likely impossible until the water recedes. However, if you have a burst water pipe, you need to take steps to stop the leak. Turn off the water main or get the pipe repaired quickly.
  2. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible.
    • Most insurance companies offer a 24/7 claims number. The customer service representative can help you get the claim started and tell you the exact next steps the insurance company will need you to do.
  3. Take pictures and/or video of the damage.
    • You need to have a visual record of the damage to the building and its contents. This is critical for your claim.
  4. Make reasonable repairs to the property to secure it from further damage.
    • This includes covering holes in the roof, securing windows with plywood, etc.
  5. Start getting the water out.
    • If you have water remaining inside the building, you can start removing it. You can do this yourself or have a water extraction company do it. Keep all receipts since insurance may cover those costs.
  6. Don't throw anything away.
    • The adjuster will need to see all damaged property.
  7. Write down all your interactions with the insurance company.
    • This includes time, date, who you spoke with, and the details discussed. Always follow up in writing on important discussions.
  8. Keep a central file that includes your interaction log, documents received from the insurance company, copies of the photos taken, and copies any correspondence you send.
