November is Child Safety and Protection Month

10/31/2017 (Permalink)

Community November is Child Safety and Protection Month Child Safety and Protection Month Starts Tomorrow!

Below are tips for helping to keep children safe at home.

    • Use safety gates. Even before your baby crawls, install safety gates to match your home and protect curious children from harm. Hardware mounted gates should be installed at the top and bottom of the stairs.

    • Prepare for bedtime: Remove all soft, fluffy and loose bedding from the baby’s sleep area. This includes pillows, blankets, quilts, bumper pads, sleep positioners, sheepskins, stuffed toys and other soft products.

    • Be mindful of plants. Choose decorative plants that are nontoxic. Common household plants can often cause serious sickness.

    • Use Doormats. Place a welcome mat outside your home or apartment. Pesticides and other toxins may be carried inside on the soles of people's shoes.

    • Be cautious of choking hazards. Be vigilant about coins, marbles, keys, jewelry, paper clips, water bottle tops, safety pins, removable rubber tips on doorstops, jeweled decorations on children's clothing, crayons, and hard and round foods.

    • Check out your furniture. Use angle braces or anchors to secure large furniture to the wall.

    • Hot water: Set hot water heaters no higher than 120 degrees F. A lower water temperature reduces the chance of scald burns.

    • Fingerprint your children. Contact your local police department to ask if the department provides home fingerprinting kits. Some departments will fingerprint your child for you. If your local police department does neither, you can easily find fingerprint kits for sale online. http://www.yoursafechild.com/

    • Be Mindful of Windows. Screens are meant to keep bugs out, not prevent children from falling. Never put furniture or cribs near windows where children can easily fall through.

    • Dishwasher Hazards. Point knives, forks, and other sharp items downward in the utensil basket. Don't fill the dispenser with detergent until you're ready to run the load, and wipe out any that's left over after each cycle. Always replace the cap on the bottle tightly, and store it in a locked cabinet. Keep the dishwasher closed and latched when it's not in use.

    • Stoves and Kitchen Ranges. Make sure free-standing or slide-in ranges are installed with anti-tip brackets that secure the rear legs to the floor. Manufacturers are required to provide these brackets on ranges made after 1991, but you can contact the company for the parts, or order them from an appliance-parts store. Keep the oven door closed when not using the oven, and never allow your child to lean on or climb on the range or oven door. Install child safety locks on knobs. Install stove guards.

    • Fire Safety. For the best protection, install smoke alarms on every level of your home and in every sleeping area. Teach kids never to play with matches and lighters. Make a habit of placing these items up and away from young children. Create and practice a home fire escape plan with two ways out of every room in case of a fire.

National Fire Prevention Week

Fire Damage National Fire Prevention Week Fire Prevention Week October 8-14

October 8th - 14th is National Fire Prevention Week.

In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.

That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages:

  • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.
  • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
  • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
  • Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
  • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

Water Damage Rescue MAT System Needed to Save a Beautiful Hardwood Floor Rescue MAT System in place to help restore the water damaged hardwood flooring

We received a call from our customer in Heath, Texas very concerned about his hardwood floors. When he spoke to Liberty Mutual (his insurance company) they told him to give us a call and get a MAT system out there as soon as possible! 

MAT Systems are used to dry out water-damaged hardwood flooring safely and effectively. This system uses the power of a high-pressure blower to draw moisture right through the surface of the floor. Two mat sizes make it easy to custom fit to any floor layout.

You will see in the photo that several mats were laid out in the affected area to draw the water from the flooring. We are proud to have the latest technology for water restoration from moisture meters and thermal cameras to injection drying and rescue mat systems like this one.

What does the fire restoration process typically look like?

Fire Damage What does the fire restoration process typically look like? SERVPRO of Flower Mound is here to help 24/7 after your fire damage!

Every fire damage event is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources. 

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

Our customer was in the UK for 3 weeks and came home to find mold in there master closet, bathroom, and bedroom. There was also water damage in the adjacent rooms that needed to be taken care of.

We removed carpet, pad, baseboards, and wood flooring that was saturated and had been sitting. Due to the amount of microbial growth a mold assessment consultant was required to provide a remediation protocol. Once we received the protocol outlining the  scope of work we were able to get started!

Our protocol included setting up containment, air scrubbers, cleaning the contents, and removing all affected materials. After HEPA vacuuming, wire brushing and sealing the affected studs with an antimicrobial encapsulating paint our job was ready for clearance testing.
