Don’t Let a Hurricane Shut Down Your Wethersfield Business

7/28/2021 (Permalink)

A hurricane cloud spins in the sky There's a lot you can do to protect your Wethersfield business from hurricane damage. Follow these tips from SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield.

A hurricane or strong wind storm hitting your commercial building can be a true disaster, one that might threaten the continued survival of your business. You can’t stop Mother Nature, but you can be ready to prevent damage and recover quickly if you get hit by a storm. So, during hurricane season, Wethersfield business owners and managers should take these precautions to avert the worst effects of a hurricane.

Long Before the Storm Hits

If your business is located within 50 miles of the coast—and all of Wethersfield is!—then you are at increased risk of suffering both property damage and a business interruption from a hurricane.

  • Stay informed about potential hurricanes and other storms. You can sign up the National Hurricane Center to receive updates of threatening weather.
  • Long before a hurricane is in the forecast, you should create a business continuity plan that details how your business will recover from storm-related and other damage.
  • Keep a well-stocked emergency kit on hand, including first aid equipment, battery-powered radio, flashlights and a supply of nonperishable food and water.
  • Maintain an updated emergency contact list of all your employees.
  • Decide which storm damage remediation company—we suggest SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield!—will handle your cleanup and restoration.

When the Storm Is on its Way

A storm is coming, and Wethersfield is forecasted to feel the effects. Now is the time to get to work protecting your physical plant from wind and rain. Take as many of these precautions as you can before the hurricane hits.

  • Cover your windows and doors with plywood or hurricane shutters.
  • Make sure that exhaust fans, solar panels and HVAC equipment are firmly attached to your roof.
  • Move vehicles inside to a garage or warehouse. Lash down signs, dumpsters and other heavy objects outside your building.
  • Inside, move documents to a secure area, above ground level. Cover computers, copiers and other electronic equipment with plastic sheets.

After the Storm Passes

  • Use your contact list to check in with your employees.
  • Contact your insurance company ASAP to get a start on processing any property damage claims.
  • Take photos and video of damage, and keep receipts for storm-related expenses.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for the quickest, most thorough storm damage remediation at a time when lots of Wethersfield businesses will be competing for storm cleanup services.

Use Your Generator Safely After a Storm

7/22/2021 (Permalink)

A portable generator Survive the storm and its aftermath by following our tips on safe use of generators.

Every storm season ends in tragedy for some folks. If it’s not the natural disaster itself—hurricane, tornado, blizzard, flood or other big storm—it’s the cleanup or aftermath that causes unnecessary injuries and deaths.

As an example, Hurricane Laura slammed into the state of Louisiana in August 2020. The category 4 winds reached 150 miles per hour, the storm surge reached 15 feet, and hundreds of thousands of people lost power. Although they survived the storm and flooding, many Louisianans died in the aftermath from carbon monoxide poisoning from incorrectly used generators.

The Deadly Toll of Unsafe Generators

According to The New York Times, “The electrical outages have been deadly, as several people who turned to generators to power refrigerators, lights and air conditioners have been overcome with fumes.

“At least seven people have been killed by carbon monoxide from generators, including four members of a family found dead in a home in Lake Charles. A fifth member of that family was taken to a hospital. Their generator was in a garage and the deadly gas was able to seep into the house through a garage door that was left cracked open, [Lake Charles mayor Nic] Hunter said.

“Another man in Calcasieu Parish, which includes Lake Charles, died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator, as did an 84-year-old man and an 80-year-old woman in the same home in Allen Parish, to the northeast, said health officials, who warned people never to place generators in homes or in closed garages.”

Guidelines for Safe Generator Use

Colorless, odorless and tasteless carbon monoxide gas (CO) is produced by portable generators. In just five minutes, carbon monoxide can build up inside a garage or home to levels high enough to sicken or even kill, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Prevent a post-storm tragedy by following these safe generator use guidelines.

  • Don’t operate your generator in an enclosed area, such as a garage, or inside a house. Deadly carbon monoxide can build up even in a partially enclosed space.
  • Set up your generator at least 20 feet from your house and aim the engine exhaust away from windows and doors.
  • Allow for 3 to 4 feet of clear space on all sides and above your generator for ventilation.
  • Set up a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector when you are running your generator to let you know if CO is building up.
  • If it’s raining, set up a tent or canopy to keep your generator dry while allowing for ventilation.
  • Watch for symptoms of CO poisoning: dizziness, fatigue, headaches and nausea. If anyone is affected, everyone should quickly go outside to fresh air and call 911. Remain outside until your house has been declared free from carbon monoxide.
  • If you’re purchasing a new generator, choose one that has a sensor that will automatically detect dangerous levels of CO and shut itself off.

Here are three ways we provide complete fire, smoke and soot restoration services after you’ve had a house fire.

Cleaning Your Structure

After a house fire, your walls, ceilings, trim and floors will need to be completely cleaned. When you call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield, our crew will evaluate the damage, then determine the appropriate equipment and products to clean and protect the different surfaces in your structure. We may be able to reduce your costs by cleaning lighter soot deposits so that you don’t have to repaint.

Cleaning Your Possessions

SERVPRO will examine the contents of your home to determine what is restorable, including area rugs, furniture, draperies and upholstery. We test fabrics and surfaces to determine which cleaning methods are most appropriate for each item; it may be a wet or dry cleaning method. Other items may include electronics, art, kitchen items, clothing, bedding, books and documents. SERVPRO uses the appropriate unique cleaning methods and products for every type of object.

SERVPRO also makes fire damage restoration easier by providing a digital inventory of all your damaged items, making it simple to track everything through the cleaning process and to document your insurance claim.

Deodorizing Everything

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield completes the fire damage restoration job by clearing your home of odors left by fire or smoke damage. We do not merely cover up lingering odors with a fragrance; we seek out the sources of the odor and remove them with advanced equipment, such as foggers that penetrate all the crevices in your home and furnishings.

Hurricane on the Way? Get Ready!

7/16/2021 (Permalink)

A house is surrounded by damage from a hurricane As hurricane season approaches, prepare your home or business to withstand the damage—and be ready to ride out a power outage, too.

Summer brings with it the risk of powerful windstorms in the form of hurricanes, and each year, it seems like the storms hit earlier and drop more rain—and there are more of them, too! So take the risk of windstorms seriously and if a hurricane is in the forecast, take these steps to protect your home and family.

Protect Your Home or Business

The high winds and wind-driven rain of a hurricane can severely damage your home or business. Prepare for a hurricane by paying attention to these areas of your structure.

  • Roof: You don’t have to lose your roof to hurricane winds to suffer damage to your structure; if shingles are ripped off, you could end up with water in your home or business. Start by checking your roof for missing or damaged shingles. Consider hiring a roofer before the storm to replace or repair any vulnerable areas.
  • Gutters: So that they can route all the expected water, check your gutters to be sure they are secured to the structure and are unclogged. (A roofer can do this work, too.)
  • Windows: Your windows are a weak point in a hurricane. If you have hurricane shutters, attach them, or nail plywood over the window openings.
  • Exterior: Objects outside your home or business should be secured. Otherwise, they can become dangerous projectiles tossed about by the winds that can crash into your structure or other property. Large objects such as garbage cans and outdoor furniture should be stored inside, if possible, or tied down securely.

Protect Your Family

Hurricanes often knock out power for several days or more, so keep your family safe and healthy by setting aside at least several days’ worth of food and water.

  • Store enough nutritious nonperishable food to last three days to two weeks.
  • Store one gallon of water for each person per day.
  • Turn your refrigerator and freezer down to the lowest possible temperature before the storm arrives. An unopened refrigerator will keep food safe for 4 hours, while a full freezer will keep food frozen for 48 hours.

A hurricane carries the risk of injuries or illness. Keep a fully-stocked emergency kit in your home that includes:

  • First aid supplies
  • Flashlights with batteries
  • Fully charged cell phones
  • Pain relievers and regular medications
  • Important paperwork (for identification and insurance claims)
  • Cash

Without notice, your Glastonbury commercial facility may be contaminated with biohazardous substance, such as sewage, blood or other body fluids, or hazardous chemicals.

Call SERVPRO When DIY Doesn’t Get the Job Done

7/12/2021 (Permalink)

A wooden floor and carpet covered with water DIY after a water or fire disaster in your home may cost you more time and money … call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for a job done right!

Especially after last year’s pandemic and quarantine, Do It Yourself (DIY)—doing your own home repair and improvement projects—has really taken off. This multibillion dollar industry means that more and more of us are taking on our own fix-it jobs.

One of the primary reasons to DIY is to save money. But for many homeowners, DIY projects end up going bad and creating more expense and mess than using a professional contractor.

How often does this happen? Well, in a recent survey of 2,000 homeowners done by Improvenet, an online referral service for remodelers, almost two-thirds of the respondents regretted doing one or more DIY projects! And in one out of three of those regrettable projects, the homeowner hired a professional to complete the job. That translates into more than twenty percent of the surveyed DIYers needed to have a contractor come in and fix their mistakes or finish the job.

It gets worse: more than eight percent of the DIYers caused damage to their home, and more than six percent had injured themselves or a helper while doing a DIY project.

DIY After Water or Fire Damage Is a Challenge

If you’ve suffered a water or fire disaster at your home, you may be considering doing the repairs yourself, especially if the damage doesn’t appear to be too extensive. We at SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield have seen it all, and know that what seems like an easy repair can end up costing you time and money if you don’t get the damage cleaned up the right way.

If you’ve had a flooded basement or perhaps a leak from a roof or water appliance, you can attempt to clean up the damage by yourself. Unfortunately, you probably don’t have equipment such as strong wet vacs, air movers and moisture measuring devices, so you may not get all the water out quickly enough. In just 48 hours, lingering moisture can lead to an ongoing mold problem. SERVPRO will do your water damage cleanup quickly and completely, leaving nothing to chance.

Likewise, if you’ve had a small fire at your home, you may be tempted to do the repair yourself. But a fire can be deceptive: is your home’s structure damaged? Is there lingering smoke and soot? What about the water used to put out the fire? Even a seemingly-simple fire cleanup job may require specialized cleaning methods and products. SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield will make sure that your structure is sound, while cleaning and deodorizing your home and everything in it.

Use the Right Smoke Detectors in the Right Locations

6/24/2021 (Permalink)

A smoke detector on a ceiling Buy the right kind of smoke and CO detectors and install them in the right locations to protect your home and family from fires.

You already know that you need to have working smoke detectors in your home. These little devices buy you precious time if a fire breaks out in your house, allowing anyone inside to escape before injury occurs. But protecting your home and family is not as simple as slapping some detectors up here and there. You need to first choose the right kind of detectors, then you need to place them appropriately in your home. Here’s how.

What Kind of Detectors?

Smoke Detectors

Some fires burn intensely with lots of flames, while some smolder. There are three types of smoke detectors, but only one is effective in detecting both types of fires.

Ionization detectors are best at detecting fast-burning flaming fires, while photoelectric detectors are good for detecting smoky, smoldering fires. You can use a mixture of both types to cover all the fire hazards in your home.

Dual-sensor smoke detectors are the best of both worlds. They use both ionization and photoelectric technology to detect flaming and smoldering fires.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide detectors work by using sensors to detect CO in the air.

Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Combination detectors protect against both fire and carbon monoxide, typically using ionization or photoelectric technologies plus carbon monoxide detection.

Bonus: Smart Detectors

Smart detectors are connected to the internet and usually have additional features that you can access through a smartphone app, such as a low battery alert, alerts for smoke or CO detection and the ability to silence an alarm when you’re not home.

Where to Place Your Detectors?

Every home should be equipped with smoke detectors, and if your home has fuel-burning appliances (furnace, water heater, range, cooktop or a grill), carbon monoxide detectors, too. Here’s where to install those life-saving devices.

Place smoke detectors (we recommend dual-sensor models) high on the wall in these locations:

  • Inside each bedroom
  • Outside each sleeping area
  • At least one on each floor (including finished attics and basements)

You should install carbon monoxide detectors in these locations:

  • Outside each sleeping area
  • In the basement
  • At least one on each floor
  • Near but not inside attached garages

If you do have a fire in your home, call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for complete fire damage cleanup services. We’ll get there fast, assess the damage, restore your possessions and structure, even remove the lingering smoke smell.

Check Your Glastonbury Home’s Vulnerable Plumbing to Prevent Leaks and Floods

6/16/2021 (Permalink)

If you’ve been lucky enough to have your Glastonbury home’s plumbing systems working trouble-free for years, congratulations! But, as with anything mechanical, past success is no guarantee of future success. Things fall apart, and a sudden leak or flood from one of your water fixtures will quickly cause a lot of costly water damage.

Stay ahead of potential problems by following good practices and checking your home’s plumbing throughout the year. This way, you can head off major disasters and more easily repair or replace whatever is starting to fail now, before you must deal with major water damage restoration.

And if you do suffer a leak or flood, call the Glastonbury-area water damage remediation experts, SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield. Our experts will arrive promptly, evaluate your situation and get to work on a plan to thoroughly dry and restore your home and possessions, treat any mold, and leave your home in before-water damage condition.

Pipes, Sewers, Drains

  • Pay attention to signs of a hidden plumbing problem. These include a higher monthly water bill, pipes that make banging noises, rust stains on your water fixtures, or wetness on walls or the floor.
  • If you are connected to your city’s sewer system, which many older homes are, or if your home is below street level, a backflow prevention valve can prevent sewage from flowing into your home’s sewer system.
  • Keep grease out of your kitchen sink drain.

Toilets

  • Twice a year, inspect your toilets. Check the fill, supply and flush valves and the supply line for leaks and other signs of wear. Turn the supply valve off and on to keep it from freezing up. If you have screw-type valves, replace them with simpler ball valves, which are easy to shut off quickly and completely.

Water Heater

  • Flush sediment from your water heater tank every six months. Turn off the power, run hot water in a sink until it is cool, then attach a garden hose to the valve at the base of the heater to drain the tank. This is also a good time to check for broken valves, rust or loose or wet joints on the pipes.
  • Once a year, have your water heater inspected, including the shut-off valve and all piping.
  • Every other year, inspect your anode rod (or every year once the warranty expires). Replace it if needed.

Washing Machine

  • Each month, take a look at the hot and cold supply lines for blisters, cracks and other signs of wear. Tighten loose connections, which usually occur at the connection where the hose bends.
  • If you spot signs of wear, replace the supply hose with a reinforced steel braided hose.
  • Every five years, install new reinforced steel braided hoses (and mark the date on them).

Why SERVPRO Can Handle the Biggest Storm Cleanup Jobs

6/4/2021 (Permalink)

A hurricane swirls SERVPRO is prepared for the largest storm damage cleanup job—and the most important one: the one that affects your home or business.

Americans have seen over the last several years that big, damaging storms, like hurricanes and tornadoes, are getting bigger, more frequent and more damaging! Sometimes the wind speeds involved are higher than usual. Sometimes the numbers of storms are greater. And sometimes, with hurricanes, the storm parks itself over an area and dumps an unbelievable amount of rain while the winds blow and blow. The result is greater damage than Americans routinely dealt with even just a few years ago.

When a major storm hits an area of our country, often the preferred storm damage restoration company is SERVPRO. That’s not by accident. SERVPRO has taken the task of major storm cleanup very seriously and as a corporation, has created a unique division that responds to large-scale storm and natural disaster emergencies quickly and with enough resources to make a real difference to those homeowners and business owners who have had their worlds turned upside down.

Floods of 2010 Were a Turning Point

SERVPRO has been providing large-scale storm damage remediation services for decades. But the corporation, headquartered in Gallatin, Tennessee, used its experiences during the 2010 Nashville floods as a catalyst to redesign its major storm and disaster recovery program.

Available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, SERVPRO’s Disaster Recovery Team is drawn from the best of the best of SERVPRO’s storm damage remediation professionals.

When Three Tornadoes Hit Hamden and Surrounding Towns, SERVPRO Was There

Sometimes, storm damage can be widespread, and lots of homeowners and business owners need help all at the same time. That’s when people need to rely on true professionals, who know how to assess damage, stop further damage and restore the damage quickly and completely.

Several years back, a group of three tornadoes slammed into Hamden, Connecticut and several surrounding towns. The damage was sudden and extensive: trees down, powerlines severed, windows shattered, roofs damaged or destroyed, and houses left open to the elements. SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield was called upon to respond to many of the cases of storm damage.

Whether it was a tree crashing through a Hamden garage or multiple trees landing on a house, SERVPRO arrived quickly on the scene and assisted with both tree removal and storm damage cleanup. We dedicated multiple crews to helping shocked storm victims get their lives back on track by making the storm damage “Like it never even happened.”
