Don’t let ice dams cause damage to your home

Picture of roof with snow on top, then melting into water, then creating an ice dam in the edge Don’t let this happen to your home. If you see this forming give SERVPRO of Campbell County a call.

Winter storms and cold temperatures can cause more damage to your home than you may realize.  It can cause burst pipes, leaky roofs, and something you may not be aware of called ice dams.  Ice dams may not seem like a big deal, but they can cause extensive water damage to your home and can lead to other problems.  

Ice dams are formations that keep water from properly moving off your roof.  They usually form when snow melts and then refreezes causing a wall of ice to build up.  It’s usually formed around the edge of your roof which then prevents water from draining properly.  When this happens the water then backs up causing damage to the roof and ceiling underneath.  

So how do you prevent ice dams from forming on your roof?  If ice dams form because of melting and refreezing snow then keep the temperature of your roof cool enough to prevent the melting in the first place.  Keeping the temperature of your attic low and proper insulation can help with this.  Also removing any snow from your roof after a storm is also a good way to prevent ice dams.  But what do you do if you already have a build up?  It needs to be removed as quickly as possible so using an ice melt product can do the trick.  

If your home is subject to any winter storm damage, give the experts at SERVPRO of Campbell County a call.  We can help get your home back to “Like it never even happened.”

Staying safe during the holidays

Strands of blue, green, yellow, red lights Holiday lights can be fun and festive if used properly

It’s that time of year!  The holidays are right around the corner and many people are already starting to decorate their homes and business with lights, trees, and inflatable yard decorations.  All of this can be fun and exciting, but if not done properly it could be dangerous.  Here are some tips to remember when decorating to help keep everyone safe. 

  1. Don’t leave burning candles unattended.  During the holidays candles of all sizes and fragrances are burned to create an ambiance in a home or place of business.  If you leave the room where a candle is lit remember to blow it out.  Make sure that a candle is placed away from anything that could catch on fire such as curtains, furniture, blankets, etc.  
  2. Keep real Christmas trees watered at all times.  Even though Christmas tree fires are rare, a dry tree can be engulfed in flames in less than a minute.  These types of fires can cause extensive damage to your home.  If you have a real Christmas tree be sure to keep it watered.
  3. Check holiday lights for broken bulbs and frayed wires.  Holiday lights are one of the most popular decorations this time of year.  Before you hang any, make sure there are no broken bulbs or frayed wires because that could lead to a fire.  If your lights are older they get hotter than the new LED lights, so make sure they aren’t close to anything flammable.  
  4. Don’t overload electrical outlets.  Most outdoor electrical outlets are ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets, which means they will cut the power to the outlet if it’s overloaded or if there is a short in the lights.  If you are tripping the outlet, then you may have too many lights causing an overload, or there could be a frayed wire or broken bulb somewhere.  Overloading a non GFCI outlet can cause a short leading to a fire so it is important to not overload a single outlet with too many strands of lights.
  5. Keep pets away from holiday decorations.  Cats and dogs sometimes like to climb or chew on the holiday decorations.  This could not only be dangerous and potentially deadly for your pets but it could also lead to a house fire.  Keep an eye on your pets and try to prevent them from chewing on wires or knocking anything over.  

We at SERVPRO of Campbell County hope that you and your families have a wonderful and joyous holiday season.  Stay safe and remember that we are always here if you need us.  

Space heater safety

Black space heater with orange heat waves coming out Space heaters are a great way to warm up a room if used properly

The cold weather has started making its way into the tri-state area which means we are all trying to make our homes warmer on the inside.  With the weather being really cold one day and warmer the next right now, many people may not want to turn their heat on just yet and rely on space heaters to help keep them warm.  Space heaters are a great way to keep you warm, but they can also be dangerous if not handled properly.  Here are some ways to keep you and your loved ones safe while using a space heater.

Clean the space heater 

Dust and other particles can build up on the heater during the off season, and can cause the unit to overheat or catch on fire.   Before using it for the first time make sure to clean it thoroughly and check it regularly to make sure it is clean.  

Keep the heater away from other objects

Space heaters should have 3 feet of space around them.  They should not be touching any furniture, walls, carpet, blankets, etc.  This can lead to burned items including the heater, or could potentially lead to a fire.

Never leave a space heater unattended 

If you have to leave the room that your space heater is in then be sure to turn off the heater before you leave.  They can overheat and cause a fire in your home.  You can always turn the heater back in when you return to the room and it will quickly heat back up for you.  

Avoid putting space heaters in children’s areas 

Space heaters can sometimes look like a really cool toy and invite kids to want touch them and push buttons.  The heaters can become very hot and cause burns if kids aren’t careful.  They can also easily tip over which could lead to a fire.  It is best to keep the heaters in areas where kids aren’t running and playing a lot to avoid injury or anything worse.  It is also best to keep them away from pets that roam the house for the same reasons.  

Space heaters are a great way to help keep you warm, as long as they are used properly.  Following these steps can help minimize your chances of any fire damage happening to your home.  As the days and nights start to become colder stay warm and stay safe

Is your business prepared for a disaster?

September is National Preparedness Month, so as a business owner it is a good time to review your safety plans in the event a disaster should happen.  It is important to be aware of what types of disasters could occur in your area as to know how to stay safe.  Here in Northern Kentucky tornadoes, fires, floods, and winter storms are the most common form of disasters that we could face.  

It is important to know the risk your area faces, to develop a preparedness and mitigation plan, and know what plan of action to take.  As a business owner, having these steps in place will help keep your employees and customers safe, and will help keep your business open after a disaster.  

As many as 50% of businesses may never recover after a disaster strikes.  Businesses that do survive though usually have a preparedness plan in place.  This plan should include basic first aid and CPR training, situational awareness in the event of a disaster, evacuation routes in case you need to leave your building, and a designated safe place for everyone to meet outside of the building.  It is a good idea to go over the safety plan with your employees and even do walk through to make sure everyone knows what to do in case of a disaster.
