Why SERVPRO Safety Tips for your Outdoor Entertaining with a Fire Pit SERVPRO of Hendricks County wants to help you plan in advance when installing your new fire pit.

Fire pits are wonderful accessories for outdoor entertaining and may be a great addition to your property.

Here are some safety tips from SERVPRO of Hendricks County when using your fire pits in Brownsburg, Indiana.  

Location

  1. Place your fire pit at least 10 feet away from any other structures to ensure a safe distance from sparks igniting other structures or smoke invading another structure.
  2. Do not set your fire pit on a covered deck or under tree branches to ensure that flames and sparks will not set objects on fire.

Under the Pit

  1. Make sure you have the proper type of bedding under the fire pit such as stone, brick, gravel, or concrete.
  2. Never place over a wooden deck or over dry grass; this will prevent causing a spark to the ground below the pit.

Weather

  1. Do not use your fire pit on windy days.
  2. Check the breeze to see what direction the breeze is flowing and place the fire pit out of the breeze.

Lighting the Fire Pit

  1. Do not use lighter fluid or gasoline to light the fire.
  2. Kindling such as newspaper, pine needles, etc., are great starters for your fire pit.
  3. Always have hose or water nearby in case the fire starts to spread.

Make sure your town or covenant rules allow for burning a fire pit.

If you have the misfortune of a fire spreading due to a fire pit, call the professionals at

Is a Leaking Roof in Avon an Emergency?

4/22/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Is a Leaking Roof in Avon an Emergency? Damage from leaking roofs can be kept to a minimum if acted upon quickly.

Roof leaks are a problem in any weather, but a roof that starts to leak during a heavy rainstorm can quickly turn into a major emergency. Unfortunately, rainy weather is when a roof leak is most likely to happen.

No resident ever wants to find water leaking from their ceiling.  It is important that you take immediate action to avoid additional damage to your home.

Containing the Leak

The water leak may have caused a bulge or discoloration to your ceiling which may indicate that the water is collecting and pooling on the other side or the ceiling.

Get a trash can or bucket and place under the site of the damaged area.  Next, take a screwdriver and use it to puncture the very middle of the bulge where the water is accumulating.  Doing this may prevent the entire ceiling from collapsing.

SERVPRO of Hendricks County and their IICRC Technicians are available 24/7 to provide emergency water extraction and water mitigation to return your home to “Like it never even happened."

Dangers of Waiting

Immediate action to a roof leak can minimize any future damage and possibly prevent any microbial growth. Avoiding or ignoring stains on the ceiling or even bubbling or bulges may often lead to a damaging and costly repair.

What Do You Do When Your Toilet Overflows?

4/19/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO What Do You Do When Your Toilet Overflows? It's a dirty job and SERVPRO of Hendricks County wants to take care of restoring your property back to preloss condition.

Oh no, the toilet is overflowing is a message you hope you never hear!  But rest assured, unfortunately, it happens all the time and our SERVPRO of Hendricks County technicians are just a phone call away.

If your toilet begins to overflow following a flush, you want to make sure you stop the flow of water immediately to minimize any water damage.  To do this, remove the tank lid and press down on the bottom flapper valve.  This will prevent any additional water from getting into the toilet bowl.  Once you have pressed the flapper valve, lift the float that operates the tank fill valve to stop the tank from filling.  This should allow the water level to drop; otherwise, turn off the water valve behind your toilet by turning it clockwise. 

The Source of the toilet bowl overflow might be a Clog

You may have a blockage in the toilet bowl or a clogged drain or sewer line.  If you are on a septic system, your septic tank may be full. 

Our SERVPRO technicians are trained water damage restoration professionals and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).  Let SERVPRO of Hendricks County be the calm in your chaos the next time your toilet overflows.  Our vehicles are fully equipped with state-of-the-art water extraction, drying, and moisture testing equipment to handle your loss.
