Holiday Fire Hazards

12/7/2020 (Permalink)

Colorful lights, burning candles, and festive decorations are just a few of the items bringing charm and cheer to the holiday season—however, if they are not used carefully, your holidays may go from festive to frightening. The American Red Cross offers the following safety tips to help greatly reduce the fire risk in your home or business this holiday season:

  • Place Christmas trees, candles, and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, heat vents, and candles.
  • Make sure light strings and other holiday decorations are in good condition. Do not use anything with frayed electrical cords, and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Always unplug tree and holiday lights before leaving the property or going to bed.
  • Never use lit candles to decorate a tree. Always extinguish candles before leaving the room or before going to bed.
  • Use only sturdy tree stands designed to not tip over. Keep curious pets and children away from Christmas trees. Keep anything that can catch on fire—like pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, towels, or curtains—away from your stove top.
  • Designate one person to walk around your property to ensure all candles and smoking materials are properly extinguished after guests leave.

Holiday Cooking Safety

11/23/2020 (Permalink)

Did you know that the day most likely for home cooking fires is Thanksgiving Day?

With holiday season in full swing, many people have gatherings for family and friends which means more cooking and more time spent in the kitchen. There may be a lot of cooking to keep up with and it could get a little hectic in the kitchen, making it easier for an accidental fire to start. Hence, the number one reason for a home cooking fire is unattended cooking.

Here are some easy safety tips to keep in mind as you prepare for the holidays:

  • Test smoke detectors to make sure they are working and replace batteries if needed.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher and lids nearby. If you are frying food in grease use a lid to smother the flame, do not use water on a grease fire-it will make it worse.
  • Do not leave any cooking unattended. Set timers if you need to check on food.

Should your holiday cooking get out of hand, call SERVPRO of Wilson/Nashville to take care of any fire or soot damage.

Frozen Pipes Can Cause Big Damage

11/11/2020 (Permalink)

The Wilson/Nashville area has begun to cool down and is in the transition from heat and humidity to cooler winter weather. With cool, freezing temperatures brings an increased chance of freezing pipes.

Cold temperatures can cause water pipes to freeze. Freezing inside a pipe creates a lot of pressure which can cause the pipe to burst and likely lead to serious flooding, especially when there is no one around to turn off the water. If you notice your pipes have frozen, you will want to thaw them before they break. Thaw them by first locating the pipe and opening the faucet. Then apply heat near the faucet and work your way down. You can use a hair dryer, hot towels, a portable space heater or heat lamp, or electrical heating tape, but never use an open flame as that could cause your pipes to break.

If that seems a little intimidating, here are some preventative measures you can take to protect your water pipes from freezing during those cold spells.

  • open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing
  • let cold water drip from a faucet, even a small amount of running water will prevent freezing
  • if you plan to be out of town, set thermostat to a temperature no lower than 55 degrees F
  • for long term solutions, add insulation to attics, basements, and crawlspaces and seal cracks/holes around windows and doors to keep warm air inside

Should you ever experience flooding or damage from a broken water pipe in your home, call SERVPRO of Wilson/Nashville.
