Theme of the Month – April

This month we are focused on talking about something hard: Biohazard. This is a service that many never think about until they are in the situation. Many times, people might try to clean this up themselves without first finding out the risks associated. There are many reasons why it is best to do your homework and choose a company to assist, but here are two great reasons:

  • Safety: No matter what type of fluid (blood, feces, vomit, etc.), they are all considered biohazard from both human and animal. That means that they could carry life threatening pathogens to the person cleaning up the area or whoever is even just exposed to them. When working with life threatening pathogens, it is important to remove and dispose of this waste properly, in a trained manner. SERVPRO of Daviess County, Kentucky has completed all of the proper trainings, including being registered and compliant with OSHA and FEMA guideline to clean up any type of biohazard.
  • Traumatic: When it is a personal connection, it is emotionally difficult to clean up the area when it is a traumatic loss. Having someone else come in will be easier on any family or loved ones.

If you have any questions about this service, give us a call.

Theme of the Month – March

This month SERVPRO of Daviess County, Kentucky is focused on spreading the word on how our franchises help when disasters strike large areas. With the major damage that recently hit Texas and other surrounding states, our franchise, along with many others, traveled to assist homes and businesses. Our crews have been in Katy, Texas for almost a month without a break. While these weeks may be tiring, it is well worth it to see the before and after of these homes and businesses. It is also a HUGE motivator knowing we help lift the stress from these home and business owners’ shoulders during one of the most trying times of their lives.

While Kentucky was not hit this time, it could be us next. No matter the size, big or small, SERVPRO can help and handle whatever you have going on.  Our goal is to make it “Like it never even happened.”

PREVENTING FIRE DAMAGE BEFORE IT HAPPENS

PREVENTING FIRE DAMAGE BEFORE IT HAPPENS

Working Smoke Alarms

Regularly test your smoke alarms to ensure that the batteries are full. If it seems weak, then replace them as soon as possible. 

Clean Kitchen Space

Move flammable items away from heat sources to prevent any fire or smoke damage from happening. Crumbs can also quickly catch on fire if they get warm enough, and cause major problems.

Empty Lint Catch in Dryer

Each time you use the dryer, clean out the catch. Lint buildup causes approximately 2,900 house fires a year.

Check Old Cords

Items with fraying cords cause a huge fire risk. They can quickly combust and turn into a fire. Check each use for any issues before plugging in!

Safely Store Products 

Many items have a distinct way to store them, such as hairspray or shaving cream. These are not supposed to be kept around any heat sources. Read labels and make sure to follow them accordingly. 

Fireplace

When there is a flame, always make sure an adult is present, and nothing flammable is nearby.  

Fire Extinguishers

Have fire extinguishers available around the home or in your businesses.

Preventative Fire Safety – Space Heaters

Preventative Fire Safety – Space Heaters

Over the years, your electric items become more susceptible to burnouts and malfunctions. Your space heater is no different! When a disaster happens, it can cause major issues. Here are several ways to prevent this from being you-

  • Level Surface

Once tipped over, if it does not automatically shut off, can cause a fire.

  • Check Safety Features Before Purchase

When purchasing or researching a new space heater, check that it has built in safety features.

  • Move Flammable Items Out of the Area

Space heaters can quickly heat items up and cause sparks and flames if not properly taken care of.

  • Turn Off Unattended Heaters

By turning them off as you leave the room, it takes away a huge fire hazard.

  • Keep Heater Away from Small Children and Pets

You can purchase a safety screen that will put a three-foot barrier around the device. This prevents burns and fires.

WINTER ROAD CONDITION WARNING!

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 – Thursday, February 11th, 2021, there is a severe ice storm warning for a large portion of Kentucky.  Through these days, it is advised to take extreme caution while traveling, and staying home is encouraged to prevent accidents. Weather.com states that significant ice and snow mixture will be hitting us during these days, and the possibility of power outages and tree damage are both are very high.

This week the temperatures are predicted to continue to stay low. Because of the possibility of power outrages, make sure you take precautions TODAY against frozen pipes in your homes or businesses. A few ways to do this are listed below.

Drip your inside faucets to keep water moving through pipes.

Cover outside faucets with specialized covers. You can get these at most stores, but also through Amazon Prime!

Open interior doors to promote air flow in the home.

Keep garage door closed to keep warm air inside the home or business.

Cabinet doors with pipes in them should be left open to promote warm air flow inside.

Building Fire Prevention Tips

2/8/2021 (Permalink)

After a major disaster strikes, over HALF of businesses never reopen! That is a huge amount of businesses owners’ lives being changed. While not all disasters are preventable, there are things you can do to help prevent the loss or help prevent more damage from happening. SERVPRO of Daviess County, Kentucky’s goal is to give you information on how to do this.   

As the cold weather sets in, we know to expect even more calls to come in about fires. These calls come from both large and small losses, and from homes and businesses. During the winter months there are more fire hazards being used to heat both homes and businesses on a daily basis. Protect your business, and make plans against fire damage today!

Here are 5 ways to help protect your business:

  1. Have working fire extinguishers readily available and check them regularly. If they become hard to use, replace ASAP!
  2. Install sprinklers or a fire suppression system in every room of your business. It is also important to educate your staff about how to disarm these systems too.
  3. The equipment used in your business can cause problems when not kept clean. Dirty equipment can throw sparks and ignite other items, or the dust buildup can catch flame.
  4. Make sure to reduce clutter and take-out trash regularly to prevent a flame from taking off.
  5. Have escape routes for each area of the building posted in easy to see areas.
