SERVPRO of Hendricks County has the skilled technicians you need to call upon after a fire ruptures in your home. With the holidays approaching us we would like to provide you with some safety tips for your home during the holiday season. 

  • Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Working alarms save lives.
  • Home escape plans. Make and practice your plan and share it with guests.
  • Cooking. Someone should be in the kitchen at all times keeping an eye on the food when the stovetop is in use.
  • Candles. More candle fires happen in December than any other time.
  • Electrical fire safety. Never plug one extension cord into another. Cords are for temporary use only.
  • Space heaters. Keep space heaters three feet away from anything that can burn. 
  • Christmas tree care. Water daily, place away from sources of heat and fire, dispose of them promptly.
  • Matches and lighters. Keep matches and lighters out of the sight or reach of children.

Here at SERVPRO we have witnessed the aftermath of a fire. Keep in mind these safety tips and put a plan in place before your holiday get together!

What Happens in Your Home After Water Damage? In Avon, Indiana

10/11/2019 (Permalink)

Don't put yourself or your home in a bad position by waiting after water damage in your home.

Water damage can impact even the most valuable possessions inside your home. It can wreak havoc and damage furniture, appliances, plumbing equipment, and electronics. Over time, water damage can lead to the growth of mold inside your home. Don't give microbial growth a chance. Call SERVPRO of Hendricks County for all your water remediation needs.

The worst thing to do when facing water damage is to “save the cleanup for later”. Some people wait a while when first spotting signs of water damage to see if it will naturally go away. Even if the water evaporates on its own, the source of the damage still exists and will likely result in future problems.

SERVPRO of Hendricks County specializes in water remediation and mold cleanup. Call us to schedule your inspection today!

Home Safety Tips For Parents with Children going Back To School

Home security and safety are especially important if children will be alone at home for any length of time. Walking home alone, entering an empty house, and staying safe at home can be a challenge. But with guidance, rules, and helpful products, parents can help children stay safe at home.

  • Teach kids to lock the door and not open it for anyone: Children should know how to properly lock all doors. Teach them that they should never open the front door while they’re home alone, even for deliveries or mail.
  • Show kids how to use the alarm system: Make sure children know how to properly use the alarm system, both arming and disarming it. You should also show them how to hit the panic button and what to do if there’s an emergency.
  • Plan a safe route to school: Work with your child to plan a direct route to school. Avoid as many street crossings as possible as well as open fields, vacant lots, and desolate areas. 
  • Help children memorize important numbers: Teach kids their home address, their home number, your cell phone number, and the number of a neighbor who can help. You should also teach them how to use 911 in an emergency.
  • Teach children about stranger danger: Make sure kids know not to talk to strangers on their way home from school, even if they seem friendly or helpful. 
  • Make an emergency plan for fire: Work on an emergency plan together and determine how your child will exit in case there’s a fire. 
  • Keep communication open: Ask your child to text or call when they get home each day. Encourage them to call you if there’s any problem at all so you can help.
  • Have a plan for lost keys: Even responsible children can lose keys. Choose a destination for a spare key or leave one with a close neighbor or family member.
  • Establish rules for safety at home: Determine whether children will be allowed to use the stove or oven when home alone, rules for visitors or leaving the house, even screen time. Set kids up for a safe afternoon at home by establishing your expectations.

Stay Safe and Have a Wonderful School Year from your local SERVPRO of Hendricks County!

Moisture In The Crawlspace Plainfield, IN

7/18/2019 (Permalink)

Have you inspected your Plainfield, IN crawlspace?

Damp crawlspaces can lead to home safety and health concerns. These can include mold and mildew growth, standing water, rotted floor joists, and rotten or musty smells. A full inspection of your crawl space is the best way to determine if you have any moisture problems. Issues may not be visible from a quick peek inside your crawl space door.

If you find standing water on the floor of the crawlspace, it is important to identify whether the source of the water is groundwater or if it is coming from above. Usually, a leak in plumbing fixtures, drain pipes or water supply pipes running in the crawlspace below the floor of the house.

If you have any question or would like your crawl space inspected, please call us at 317-838-0100. SERVPRO of Hendricks County
