The Most Common Cause of House Fires

6/15/2021 (Permalink)

Fires can start for many reasons, but when it comes to your home, the leading cause is cooking, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). By taking a few common-sense precautions, your family can savor the aroma of delicious meals, instead of dealing with the smoke and damage from a kitchen fire.

SERVPRO’s Tips to Avoid Cooking Fires

  • Watch the heat: The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking, so stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. Also be sure to check the food regularly if you’re baking, roasting, or boiling.
  • Keep flammable items away from heat sources: Oven mitts, potholders, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, curtains, and paper or plastic bags can catch fire.
  • Dress thoughtfully: Remember that loose clothing, long sleeves, and scarves, can dangle onto stove burners and catch fire.
  • Clean often: Clean up spills, grease, and oil as soon as possible when the stovetop or oven is cool.
  • Stay alert: Too little sleep, alcohol consumption, and some medication can make you drowsy and less able to concentrate on cooking safety.

Make kitchen safety a priority every day and you’ll be less likely to start a fire that can cause serious damage. If a cooking fire does break out, you can count on SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel can start the fire cleanup and restoration process almost immediately. You can feel more at ease knowing we have specialized fire restoration training, personnel, and equipment to quickly restore your home to pre-fire condition.

Extreme Storms Threaten Coastal Areas

6/15/2021 (Permalink)

In New Jersey, our eroding coastlines are bringing dangerous surf closer to homes and businesses located near the shorelines. As melting glaciers cause global temperatures and sea levels to rise, cities and towns situated along coastal areas are at an increased risk of being hit by catastrophic storms.

At SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel, we’ve witnessed the damage following powerful storms and the costs that go along with repairs. Our mitigation experts have even mobilized to areas outside of our region to assist with recovery in seaside towns burdened with staggering losses.

Count on SERVPRO During Storm Season

Advanced weather models predict massive storms will become more frequent as ocean temperatures continue to rise. This will fuel stronger storms and allow them to strike communities along the shore with greater regularity.

The SERVPRO team is always prepared to help with mitigation and repairs following a serious weather event, while at the same time, staying on top of forecasts that may impact our environment. With a growing roster of qualified technicians and an inventory of cutting-edge tools and technologies for water removal and flood cleaning, our team can always be there to help when you need it.

Sprinkler Malfunction? Call SERVPRO

6/15/2021 (Permalink)

Automatic fire sprinkler systems are effective ways to extinguish a fire, but they can also pose a risk of water damage.

When activated, quick-response sprinklers will release 8-24 gallons of water per minute. In 20 minutes, they can dump hundreds of gallons if the water isn’t shut off. It’s no wonder the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) respond to over thousands of unintentional sprinkler activations each year.

SERVPRO responds to many water damage emergencies throughout the year in the Aberdeen and Holmdel areas. Our water restoration technicians have the specialized equipment and advanced training necessary to mitigate water damage quickly, no matter how big the job is.

We follow the one-four-eight rule:

We make the first contact within one hour of your call.

We arrive onsite in four hours or less.

We contact your insurance adjuster within eight hours.

When your home or commercial business has water damage, SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel is ready to respond 24 hours a day.

Call us today at (732) 290-3170, and it will be “Like it never even happened.”

Avoid the High Cost of Water Damage

6/15/2021 (Permalink)

The Insurance Journal recently reported that aside from weather events, burst and leaking pipes are the most common causes of water damage. And unfortunately, water damage is also the second-most expensive type of repair, right behind fire damage. 

When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a water emergency, SERVPRO can help prevent further damage that can lead to costly repairs and health threats.

SERVPRO Can Mitigate the Damage

A leak, overflowing bathtub, sink, or clogged toilet might seem more like an inconvenience rather than a dangerous threat. But water can do a lot of damage, especially when it’s the result of a long-time plumbing problem. Prolonged contact with water, even small amounts at a time, has a serious impact on floors, carpets, walls, and furniture.

Water damage can lead to:

  • Fire and electrocution, when water comes in contact with electrical sources
  • Mold and mildew, even on hard surfaces like masonry
  • Rotted wood that may compromise a building's structural integrity
  • Stains
  • Spread of bacteria and pathogens from contaminated sources such as sewers
  • Odors from mold, mildew, and bacteria

All of these issues are more costly to repair or remove than simply fixing leaks and persistent overflowing. To prevent mold, rot, and other problems from developing, water damage, of any degree, should be addressed within the first 24 to 48 hours.

The team at SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel is always ready to assist, regardless of the size of the water spill. Whether you need a simple inspection or complete demolition service, we have the expertise and knowledge to prevent further damage.
