Watch Out for Wildfires
Wildfires can strike almost anywhere. Whether they're ignited by lightning strikes, human error, or some other force, fire can be an incredibly destructive force of nature.
The threat of wildfires, though generally thought to be a problem in rural areas, can spread to suburbs and other populated areas as well; causing highly extensive damage. However, homeowners can implement changes to protect their homes. These changes include practices such as landscaping maintenance, keeping your lawn hydrated, and keeping your property clear of debris to prevent fuel for wildfires. It is also important to move flammable materials like propane tanks and wood piles at least 30 feet from your home's foundation.
Another tip, for the ultra-prepared, is to make an Emergency Supply Kit; including items like non-perishable food, water, flashlights and batteries and a battery-powered radio. This kit can be made portable and be kept in your car.
If fire does damage your property, it can throw your life into chaos. Whether it be a weakened frame, compromised foundation, or smoke and soot residues left to clean up, SERVPRO's state-of-the-art training and technology will leave your property looking and smelling fresh and clean.
