First five things to do after a house fire

4/16/2024 (Permalink)

A fire in your home or business is traumatic event. You will first want to ensure that your family is safe. Once you can confirm that, then you can tackle the recovery process of your home and belongings. To help, we have a list of five things that you should do after a fire. 

(1) Review with the authorities and the professionals as to when it is safe to enter the home after the fire.  The fire department will make sure that the fire is completely extinguished and then will go through their precautionary measures in order to deem the area ‘safe’.

(2) Know who to contact. First, contact any family members to let them know of the occurrence and the fact that you are safe. Review, and then contact your insurance company.

(3) Obtain the fire report. Typically coming from the fire department, this correspondence will review the facts of the fire – the home structure, the area of the fire, as well as the time and date. In some cities and towns, you may need to call the fire department directly in order to get a copy of this report.

(4) Make sure to secure your property.  If you are not securing the property, you could potentially be making a bad situation into a terrible one – your home could be robbed or, in some cases, another individual could be injured on the property (becoming your responsibility). You can ask the authorities and emergency services on the best methods in securing what is yours.

(5) Begin the clean-up process. Interior and exterior clean-up will most certainly be required, and more often than not there is damage that you cannot locate with the naked eye. 

If you experience a fire in your home or business call SERVPRO of Atlantic City.

A line of severe storms rolled through parts of Southern New Jersey on Tuesday afternoon.  If your home or business has suffered damage contact SERVPRO of Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton. Our certified technicians provide 24-hour emergency service and will respond immediately to your emergency water damage. We have the expertise to handle your water damage restoration or cleaning needs by providing:

  • State of the Art Equipment
  • Highly Trained Water Restoration Technicians
  • Direct Insurance Billing

When a major storm passes close to the house, the home may suffer water damage that is difficult to repair.

Professional restoration services can quickly identify what items in the home are compromised by water damage. Normally, anything that is porous may need to be discarded if it has come in contact with contaminated fluids. These items, like mattresses, box springs, pillows and particle board, trap more moisture than other materials and foster the growth of microbes.

The main reason a home is sensitive to water damage is because moisture is difficult to detect once the floods recede. Standing liquids can encourage microbial growth within 24 hours and can saturate all kinds of textiles and seep through drywall. Moisture may collect behind the walls, where mold and bacteria may multiply out of sight.

You can prepare for professional cleaning by getting rid of these items before the technicians arrive, but be sure to properly record and itemize the items for insurance purposes prior to disposing.Once professionals arrive at the building, they will be able to track down any pockets of excess moisture and remove them.

Here's How to Avoid Frozen Pipes in Atlantic City!

2/3/2023 (Permalink)

Tips to Help Prevent Pipes from Freezing in Atlantic City.

The three central causes of frozen pipes are quick drops in temperature, poor insulation and thermostats set too low. 

  • Insulate pipesPipe insulation in your home's crawl spaces and attic helps even if you live in a climate where freezing is uncommon. Exposed pipes are most susceptible to freezing. Remember, the more insulation you use, the better protected your pipes will be.
  • Use heat tape or heat cables. Heat tape or thermostatically controlled heat cables can be used to wrap pipes. Be sure to use products approved by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laboratories Inc., and only for the use intended (exterior or interior). Closely follow all manufacturer's installation and operation instructions.
  • Seal leaks. Locate and thoroughly seal leaks that allow cold air inside. Look for air leaks around electrical wiring, dryer vents and pipes, and use caulk or insulation to keep the cold out.
  • Secure outdoor hoses, valves and faucets. Before winter hits, disconnect garden hoses and, if possible, use an indoor valve to shut off and drain water from pipes leading to outside faucets. This reduces the chance of freezing in the short span of pipe just inside the house.
  • Let water drip. A trickle of hot and cold water might be all it takes to keep your pipes from freezing. Let warm water drip overnight when temperatures are cold, preferably from a faucet on an outside wall.
  • Adjust the thermostat. Keeping your thermostat set at the same temperature during both day and night also reduces the risk of frozen pipes. During extreme cold, this also helps reduce the strain on the furnace.
  • Open cabinet doors. This allows heat to get to un-insulated pipes under sinks and appliances near exterior walls.

Anything can happy in severely cold and windy weather. If you should have frozen pipes that burst, SERVPRO® Team Fabiani has the experience and equipment to restore your property back to preloss condition ASAP. Call 609-965-0885. We're Here to Help® 24/7/365!
