Storm Warning Vs. Watch

6/18/2021 (Permalink)

We’ve all seen or heard the warning, but in many instances we always get storm warnings and watches mixed up.  When you hear the weather warning on the radio or television be sure you know the differences between the two.

These warnings and watches apply to the seasonality of storms from winter, summer, spring and fall, as well as be used for precipitation alerts.

A weather WATCH means that there are elements that exist for the potential development of severe weather. When this weather alert happens, it's a good idea to refresh yourself on your emergency evacuation or safety plans but you don’t need to act on them during this alert. 

A weather WARNING indicates that severe weather is in your area or it is already occurring based on either the severe weather has been spotted or is showing on weather radar. It is during this weather alert it's important to act on your emergency plans to ensure safety. 

For any severe weather event, you can count on the Professionals at SERVPRO of Bloomington to assist you if your home is damaged in any weather event. Give them a call today at 812-824-2027.

Fire Safety Tips

6/13/2021 (Permalink)

There are several ways to ensure your safety from a house fire. The American Red Cross has data listed on their website at www.redcross.org to help individuals be as prepared as they can be for a house fire.

  • Installation of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are very important and can often be the first alert you can have when a fire starts.
  • With any smoke and carbon monoxide detector it is essential to test them once a month to make sure they are operating. Even though sealed detectors are typically good for 10 years, you still need to test them monthly.
  • Create a fire escape plan for your family. That way everyone knows where to meet or be found in the event of a fire. 
  • Install fire extinguishers in rooms where heat sources are prevalent such as kitchens and garages

Continual training and in-home maintenance will help keep you safe from home fires. For any fire damage, trust in the experts at SERVPRO of Bloomington to help repair your home from damages. For any other questions call 812-824-2027

Did you know that your local SERVPRO of Bloomington also has full capacity to handle smoke and soot damaged laundry?  It's a huge difference and a true reason why SERVPRO can handle your insurance claim. 

Our laundry system uses specialized equipment and procedures to ensure smoke and soot damaged clothing can be restored instead of replaced, making your insurance claim less and helping to keep premiums down. 

Our process can take even the smokiest and most soot damaged goods back to normal again. Even soft contents that are white that are stained from soot and water come clean to like new condition. 

Other restoration companies outsource their customers' laundry out of state meaning another set of hands processing laundry, more costs involved and a more lengthy process in getting your essential items back.

For more about how this process can restore and not replace all of your soft contents give your local SERVPRO a call at 812-824-2027.
