Label with pet plans It's easy to plan ahead and protect your pets.

In the USA a whopping 66% of households have pets and unfortunately they are caught up in the same situations as humans when disasters strike. Planning ahead for their well being and safety is key not only for their health but for your piece of mind if you should find your family in a natural disaster, fire or any other situation what may drive you from your home. Here are a few steps you can take now to ensure their safe keeping:

1) Place a sign on all exterior doors alerting First Responders to the number of pets inside. Disasters don't always strike when you're at home.

2) Have an evacuation plan for your pets. Make sure you have carriers or leases close to your exits so you can grab them in a minutes notice.

3) Find a hotel, relative or friend who can accommodate you and your pets if needed in advance. If you can't find accommodations together find a shelter or veterinarian who can keep your pets.

4) Prepare a "Grab and Go" bag for your pets. Some items to include may be water & food bowls, dry/canned food, toys or warm blanket.

Pets can be a part of our family, save yourself the heart ache of losing a pet by planning ahead.

Green trash receptacles with SERVPRO logo Reusable trash receptacles are not only easier to spot but they are more ecological than disposable receptacles often used at outdoor events.

Every year we get request from event organizers  asking us to supply trash receptacles for outdoor events and we're happy to oblige free of charge! Instead of the loading up our land fills with disposable cardboard receptacles we invested in durable plastic cans that can be used multiple times. In addition to using these cans at outdoor events we have also supplied them to are fire departments for use in their stations and also for them to use at the scene of fires and accidents. In the future we pan to donate them to area parks in the smaller communities we service where money for maintenance is tight. Taking care of our environment is important not only for now but for generations to come.

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

5/2/2022 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
