Weather alert radios can save lives

2/10/2020 (Permalink)

Whether it be at your place of business or at your home, safety is always a top concern.  All buildings and homes are equipped with smoke detectors to help keep everyone safe in case of a fire, but how are you protecting your employees or your family from dangerous storms?  When it comes to safety, time is everything, and having a few extra minutes can save lives. A weather radio is just as important as a smoke detector. Having one in your business or home can help you gain some time to get everyone to safety and to not be caught off guard.  

Once an alert has been issued by the National Weather Service, the weather alert radio will send out a warning immediately.  Your weather alert radio will receive this information at the same time as tv stations and other media outlets, so you will know before it even hits the air, giving you extra time to prepare and get everyone to safety.  A weather alert radio is designed to alert you of dangerous situations such as tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and even flooding, and they are loud enough to let everyone in the building know of the dangers headed your way.  

A weather alert radio is a great addition to any home or business.  During a dangerous weather event television and radio broadcasts as well as cell towers can all go down leaving you with no warning system.  Having a weather alert radio as a back up can help ensure that your employees and loved ones all stay safe.  

Preventing candle fires in your home

Candles are a great way to decorate your home or to add your favorite scent to the room, but they can also be a major fire hazard.  Depending on where they are placed they can ignite nearby combustibles or can accidentally be knocked over. It’s also very easy to forget about lit candles if they are in rooms where you can’t keep an eye on them, which could then lead to a fire.  

There are lots of candle alternatives in the market today that can help with your decorating and lighting needs for your home, and will help get rid of the risk of fire.  

  • Battery operated candles.  There are so many different options out there with battery operated candles.  They can range in sizes from tea lights to large pillar candles, come scented and non scented, flicker like a real candle, and some are even on timers to automatically turn on at the same time everyday.  Battery operated candles also come in a variety of colors to fit all your decor needs.
  • Candle warmers.  Choose from electric bases or larger lamp-style models that are designed to accommodate traditional wax candles.  These will warm the wax and help diffuse the fragrance without actually lighting the candle.
  • Reed diffusers.  Placing reeds in oil is a great way to spread a scent throughout your home without having to rely on an open flame or even a battery operated device 

Candles are beautiful and can create such warmth and ambiance to a home, but can also be very dangerous if not attended to properly.  These candle alternatives are great for everyday use in common rooms like kitchens and bathrooms where candles are normally found.  

Sump pumps are great tools for your home

1/10/2020 (Permalink)

It’s a new year, and many people will start their search for a new home soon.  Basements are very common in NKY homes, which means most of them will already have a sump pump installed.  Sump pumps are great for helping to prevent flooding in your home, but if they don’t work properly they can cause a lot of damage.  So if you are in the market for a new home there are some things you should check out before signing on the dotted line.  

If you are buying a home with a sump pump, check for previous water damage that might have occurred before the sump pump was installed.  This could be the reason the pump was installed in the first place. Water in your home can cause structural damage so be sure to check for any cracks or holes that water could get into and have them repaired before moving in.  It’s also a good idea to test the sump pump and make sure it’s actually functioning and working properly.  

Investing in a battery backup for your sump pump is also a good idea.  When storms with high winds and rain come through, your power could be knocked out causing your sump pump to stop working.  With a battery backup your sump pump will continue to work and help prevent flooding to your home.  

Sump pumps are handy tools to have in your home.  Just like any other device in your home they need to be properly maintained every year by cleaning it, checking the valve, changing the filter, and testing it.  Doing these steps will help keep your home water free.  



Hidden Water Damage

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

Water in your home is never a good thing.  But it’s the water you don’t see that can cause the most damage.  Sometimes household cleaners or a mop can’t get the job done, so it’s important to make the right choice when this happens in your home.  

Home appliances can leak and cause water damage that you might not be able to see.  The unseen water can contain bacteria, can cause mold or rot, and can cause other damage to your home.  Having a simple maintenance and inspection routine for your appliances can help prevent any unwanted water in your home. 

  • Refrigerator-  If your refrigerator has an ice maker check the hose connection attached to the water supply.
  • Dishwasher-  Periodically check the water supply line under the sink, and check around the base of the dishwasher to make sure there is no water leaking.
  • Washing Machine- Hoses should be replaced every 3-5 years.  Check for wetness around the hose ends, and check for signs of bulging, cracking or fraying. 
  • Water Heaters-  Your water heater should be placed next to a floor drain.  Check the water heater for signs of rust or any leaking.  

Home appliances are what help make our homes function, but if not inspected and maintained properly they can cause a lot of unseen damage.  If you notice any water in your home give SERVPRO of Campbell County a call to help get it cleaned up properly.

Being prepared for the winter weather

12/16/2019 (Permalink)

Winter weather is quickly approaching the tristate.  Cold temperatures, rain, ice, and snow are all possibilities this winter, so is your car equipped to handle these types of weather elements?  If your car broke down on the side of the road do you have everything that you would need to keep you and those in your car safe and warm until help arrived?  If the answer is no, then now would be a great time to prepare an emergency bag to keep in your car. Here are some great items to include in your emergency kit:

  • Extra hats, gloves, and blankets to help stay warm

  • Cell phone and a portable charger

  • Shovel

  • Windshield scraper

  • Water and snack foods

  • A first aid kit with necessary medications

  • Shovel

  • Flashlight and extra batteries 

  • Hazard or other reflectors

If you get caught in a winter storm being prepared is essential.  Get your car emergency kit ready now, and be ahead of the storm.





















Winterizing your home

11/26/2019 (Permalink)

Kentucky weather is highly unpredictable.  It can be warm and sunny in the morning, and freezing and snowing by dinner time!  But being prepared for the cold before it gets here will make it much easier to deal with.

Getting your home ready for the long, cold winter can be done by just making a few quick inspections to make sure everything is up to date.  If you use a fireplace, space heater, or a wood stove make sure you have a smoke detector and carbon monoxide monitor installed close to the area that is being heated.  You also want to make sure the batteries are in working order, so test the detectors once a month and change the batteries twice a year.  

Your roof is another area you should check when you are getting your home ready for the winter.  Check for any leaks on your roof and get those repaired to help prevent any further damage. Also cut down any limbs or branches that might fall and cause structural damage to your roof or home.  

No one wants frozen pipes, so insulate any pipes that run along the outside of your home to help prevent your water supply from freezing. Keeping the heat inside your home is always a must during those cold days so caulk and weather strip doors and windows, insulate your walls and attic, and cover your windows with plastic from the inside to help keep everyone warm.
