Each September we recognize National Preparedness Month. It was created to promote family and community disaster planning now, but also in the future. 

Here are some tips to help plan: 

You need an emergency plan! Planning for emergencies is essential because they can happen to anyone at any time. 

If your emergency supply kit is already stocked, make sure that the items are not expired. For example, are the batteries still working? 

Make sure to cut back trees and shrubs that are too close to your house, so it can prevent damage in storm season.

Fire Safety Tips for Fall

9/5/2022 (Permalink)

Orange background with text and SERVPRO logo Fall is a great time for many people to enjoy the beautiful crisp weather, but along with that comes several dangers especially fires.

When the weather turns cold most people spend more time inside their homes. This is simply because people are using fireplaces, furnaces, and heaters to keep warm. However, make sure to understand the dangers that can come of it. 

Here are some tips to help prevent fires: 

  1. Service Your Furnace: Before the cold winter weather sets in, call your heating and cooling company to service your furnace. It is good to have an inspection to make sure everything is in working order and there are no leaks.
  2. Use Fireplaces Safely: Keep fire in its proper place by using a fireplace screen. This will keep sparks from flying out of the fireplace. 
  3. Use Caution with Space Heaters: A space heater can be an effective way to warm up a chilly room. Your space heater may require venting, so make sure you have vented it to the outdoors. There should be least three feet of empty area around space heaters.
  4. Reconsider Leaf Burning: Burning leaves produces dangerous and cancer-causing chemicals. Homeowners should avoid disposing of leaves this way. 
  5. Exercise Candle Caution: Candles are a great way to give a room some light, and also smell. They can also cause fires. Never leave candles burning unattended. 
  6. Change Smoke Alarm Batteries: It is wise to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you turn back your clocks for Daylight Saving Time.
  7. Safety Tips for Fall Driving: There's nothing more beautiful than a fall drive, but weather can cause dangerous roads.

It is time to get your house in shape for the cooler months ahead. Here are some home maintenance ideas that will keep your home running in peak condition all winter long.

Exterior Maintenance

  • You will want to check the foundation for cracks and caulk such as where pipes or wires enter the house; this can save you money in the long run. 
  • Make sure you have storm windows and doors and remove screens. 
  • Inspect exterior walls to see if any paint is peeling or blistering on the house or outbuildings. Peeling paint is a sign that the existing paint film is failing. 
  • Make sure the roof is in good shape and make sure there are not any lose shingles. If not taken care of, damage can happen with deterioration to insulation, wood, and drywall.

Interior Maintenance

  • Air from windows and doors is easy to find, make sure to apply weather stripping and caulk to areas that have air venting issues. 
  • Change the direction of your ceiling fan to create an upward draft that redistributes warm air from the ceiling.
  • Check basement windows for drafts, loose frames, or cracked panes.
  • Vacuum internal parts of air conditioners. 
  • Clean your humidifiers regularly during the heating season. Bacteria and spores can develop in a dirty water tank resulting in unclean moisture.

SERVPRO of Natick Milford is proud to announce their collective sponsorship of the Boston Red Sox for the 2022 season. The SERVPRO owner group, which is made up of more than 30 SERVPRO franchise owners, is excited to come together and partner with their beloved Red Sox, making this sponsorship one of the first of its kind for SERVPRO. 

The sponsorship is marked by two LED signs that will illuminate SERVPRO's distinctive green and orange on the first and third baselines at every home game in historic Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. The group will also sponsor National 

Clean-Up Day on September 17, including the pregame ceremony and in-park promotions when the Red Sox host the Kansas City Royals.

This isn't the first interaction between the Red Sox and the brand, as SERVPRO's certified restoration specialists had the honor of cleaning and sanitizing Fenway Park at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. 

"Being selected to assist an institution like Fenway Park, prioritizing safety above all else, following all IICRC guidelines and CDC protocols, was a privilege," Mathewson said. "Ever since that initial interaction with such a first-class organization, we knew we wanted to take the next step to make the partnership bigger."

SERVPRO's full spectrum of restoration, mitigation, construction, cleaning, and decontamination services are offered year-round, but one thing SERVPRO and the Boston Red Sox have in common is how each gears up during the Spring season.

SERVPRO of Natick Milford Shares Mold Growth Tips

3/4/2022 (Permalink)

Orange background with text and SERVPRO logo The wet season during winter is the most prominent time for mold growth.

If you live in a climate that you heat your home frequently, mold can start growing in your home’s inside walls. The wet season during winter is the most prominent time for mold growth. This is simply because of the amount of melting snow, ice, and warm inside temperatures. Overtime mold will break down the building materials on which it grows, quickly.

Preventing Mold Growth: A great way to prevent mold growth is to make sure your walls are well-insulated. This will reduce condensation and mold.

Keep all areas clean:  Make sure your building has proper air circulation. During a shower or cooking keep a window open or turn on an exhaust fan.

  • Turn off the water supply to broken appliances and pipes.
  • Take steps to insulate your pipes both inside and out to prevent them from freezing.
  • Ensure that the seals on your windows and doors are functional.
  • If you find any condensation on your windows, don’t hesitate to dry out the area and identify the source.
  • Regularly vacuum and clean.
  • Use area rugs or washable floor surfaces rather than wall-to-wall carpeting. 
  • Leaks in your roof or windows should be repaired.
  • Gutters and downspouts should be clean. 
  • In the bathroom and kitchen, use exhaust fans or open windows when producing moisture. 
  • Make sure your clothes dryer is vented to the outdoors.
  • Consider getting a dehumidifier for your basement. 
  • Make sure your attic is well insulated and ventilated.
  • Cover the soil in the crawl space with waterproof polyethylene plastic. If your crawl space has vents, close the vents in the summer and keep them open in the winter.
