Holiday tips and tricks

10/31/2023 (Permalink)

Did you know, Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for house fires involving cooking equipment. 

Here are a few tips and tricks to help prevent a fire during the holiday season. 

  • Thaw and dry the turkey completely before frying. 
  • Keep outdoor fryers off of decks and out of garages. 
  • Prepare for weather. Do not fry a turkey outdoors during rain or snow. 
  • Wear goggles to shield eyes and oven mitts to protect hands. 
  • Have a multipurpose fire extinguisher nearby, just in case. 

Here are a few tips and trick to help regulate your temperature during the chilly autumn and winter months. 

  • Set the thermostat to 68 degrees or even lower if away from the house. 
  • Use area rugs to insulate rooms with hardwood or tile flooring.
  • Close fireplaces damper when not in use to prevent warm air from escaping. 

Water: Silent Destroyer

Out of Sight - Out of Mind

There are many that do not use their basements like they used to. Sure, the basement may be fully furnished and fully completed and just waiting for the day it will be utilized. But checking your basement on a regular basis is sort of put out of mind if we do not plan to use it regularly.

So, you can imagine the horror of walking down those basement stairs and stepping into water after months of being closed off from the world. Then finding a gaping hole in the basement ceiling, where water has been slowly eating away at the drywall and paint. Leaving behind wet carpet, damaged contents and worst of all, mold.

Water can be silent, but it can destroy your life and peace of mind. If you have a basement, make sure you are checking it on a regular basis. Add it to your calendar and do a walkthrough at least once per month. Checking for any leaks and signs of moisture or mold growth.

If you do find any leaks or water spots or mold, call the Professionals at SERVPRO of Hannibal to take care of the issue right away.

Take Care of Yourself and Family After a Fire

3/20/2023 (Permalink)

Contact your local disaster relief service, such as the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army. They will help you find a place to stay and to find food, clothing, and medicine. Make sure that you have a safe place to live temporarily. Get plenty of rest and ask for help. Do not try to do it all alone.

*Do not eat, drink, or breathe in anything that has been near the flames, smoke, soot, or water used to put out the fire.*

Help Your Pets

Try to leave pets with a family member, friend, or veterinarian if you are visiting or cleaning your property. Keep your pets out of the house until the cleanup is complete to keep them safe.

Security and Safety

DO NOT enter a damaged property unless the fire department says it is safe. Watch for damage caused by the incident. Roofs and floors may be damaged and could fall. The fire department will make sure the utility services (water, electricity, and gas) are safe to use. If they are not safe then firefighters will have your utilities turned off or disconnected before they leave. DO NOT try to turn them back on by yourself. Contact your police department to let them know that you will be away from your property.
