How to Prepare your Home for Winter Storm Izzy

1/14/2022 (Permalink)

Winter storm warning in effect for Winter Storm Izzy The winds forecasted for Winter Storm Izzy can produce power outages that can last up to a week.

Winter storms can cause just as much damage and property issues just like any other storm. That's why it is good to follow specific instructions and prepare your home and family for the unexpected before it's too late. 

Winter Storm Izzy is a major winter storm coming in from the Midwest, sweeping across the South, and going East toward Manchester through Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. 

Winter storm warnings, winter storm watches and winter weather advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for Winter Storm Izzy.

Like any large blizzard, Winter Storm Izzy has the potential for below freezing temperatures, several inches of snow and ice, and strong winds throughout Manchester and Mansfield monday. Power can go out at any moment with strong winds and freezing temperatures therefore it is important to follow these tips to remain prepared.

Lets begin with some steps we can take before the storm hits:

Step #1:Maintain the Safety and Health of Your Family

The winds forecasted for Winter Storm Izzy can produce power outages that can last up to a week or more. It's a good idea to set your refrigerator and freezer to the coldest temperatures possible before the storm hits. In an unopened refrigerator, food will keep for 4 hours, and in a full freezer, it will keep for 48 hours.

To protect the health and safety of your family make sure to keep plenty of non perishable food items on hand. Other important items to stock up on in the next few days include:

  • A gallon of water for every person for each day
  • A first aid kit
  • Flashlights with batteries
  • Charged electronics including cell phones
  • Medication
  • Cash
  • important paperwork (identification and insurance)

Step #2:Reinforce Your Structure

Check on your roof

If your home’s roof is flat or has a flat portion, be sure to remove snow carefully to prevent snow and ice buildup. Ice can weigh up to 57 pounds per square foot. With several inches of snow it can put your roof at risk of collapsing.

Don’t Let Water Pipes Freeze

A common issue we see in the winter is frozen water pipes therefore planning ahead is key. You can lose power, your furnace can malfunction or if the weather gets too cold outside your pipes are at risk for freezing and bursting resulting in inches of water damage. To prevent bursting pipes be sure to use a generator or an alternative source of heat to keep the warmth in your home. In addition, be sure to seal your home by wrapping insulation around your pipes and throughout openings in your attic to make sure no heat escapes

How to Prevent Ice Dams

Not only are your pipes at risk of freezing but when ice builds up on the side of the roof it forms an ice dam that prevents the melting snow from draining properly. This water ends up leaking into your home through your windows and walls. In order to stop water from entering your house, add insulation above your ceiling to keep the roof warmer and prevent ice buildup. Make sure your roof's gutters are clear of any leaves or sticks that prevent further drainage.

Frozen Bursting Water Pipes? Here's the scoop

1/13/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO helping customers in need. SERVPRO helping customers in need.

When you hear of the potentially disastrous effects bursting water pipes can have, you may wonder what causes a pipe to burst. The short answer is the expansion of hydrogen and oxygen molecules, but let’s be realistic - what you’re probably wondering is how to prevent bursting pipes and what to do in the unfortunate case that pipes do freeze and can’t hold the pressure.

Let’s start by talking about what steps can be taken on the preventive side:

Tip #1: Insulate your pipes

This is the A-#1 tip to reduce the risk of pipes freezing and bursting. When your pipes are properly insulated, you decrease the risk of bursting pipes significantly. Here are a couple of things to consider when choosing the right insulation for your pipes:

Location matters. Are you insulating indoor or outdoor pipes? The colder the area the pipes are in, the more necessary it is to insulate. Not only does this help with the bursting risk factor but there are a few bonus benefits, as well!!

R-value rating. Why does this matter? In short, the R-value refers to the amount of thermal insulation provided by the insulation product and is rated on a scale between 1 - 5. The higher the R-value rating, the more protection your pipes will have. NOTE: All pipe insulation products should have the R-value rating clearly marked on the packaging or in the product description.

Tip #2: Let your faucets drip slightly

Letting your faucets drip ever so slightly will help release pressure in pipes helping to avoid the chance of burst pipes. Keeping water moving a little makes it harder to freeze. This isn’t the most eco-friendly solution, but it has been known to help. (You can also keep a bucket under the slow dripping faucet to capture the water and use it to water plants or wash dishes!)

Tip #3: Keep your thermostat temperature consistent

Keeping the temperature at a steady level inside your home helps combat fluctuation in pipe temperature, which could factor in freezing pipes. 

In closing, remember that things happen and these tips are not 100% guaranteed, but will definitely help. In the event that you do have an emergency situation, remember that SERVPRO is certified and ready to help.

How SERVPRO Cleans Up Fire Damage in Your Coventry Home

12/6/2021 (Permalink)

A fireplace is covered in soot After even a small house fire, the cleanup is a challenge. Call SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield—we're the local experts in fire damage cleanup.

If you’ve had a fire in your home, it can be hard to know where to start to get things back to normal. A large fire is especially unnerving, leaving behind so much destruction you can hardly imagine your house and possessions being fully cleaned and restored. Even a small, contained fire in your Coventry-area home leaves behind lots of damage from flames, smoke, soot and the water and/or chemicals that were used to put out the fire.

Caring for You

Beyond the practical considerations of how to get your home restored, there’s also a strong emotional component after a house fire, as you probably feel shocked and frightened by the incident—not to mention overwhelmed by the important decisions you need to make. One way to get started on recovering from your house fire is to work with a trusted fire damage restoration company like SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield.

SERVPRO will quickly and completely restore your home and possessions. While we are central Connecticut’s local fire damage remediation experts, we also have the equipment, products, training and procedures of a national company. And we understand how upsetting it is to have a house fire!

When you call SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield after your house fire, here’s what you can expect:

Caring for Your House

Upon arrival, our crew evaluates the damage to your home. To tackle the soot and smoke deposits on your walls, ceilings and floors, we use the appropriate equipment and products to clean, deodorize and prepare each surface for repainting or refinishing, if necessary.

After a fire, a home will usually smell strongly of fire and smoke. Instead of masking the odors, we locate their sources and use foggers and other specialized equipment to penetrate into the crevices of your home and furnishings and completely deodorize them.

Caring for Your Possessions

We first evaluate the type and level of damage to the contents of your home, then test items to choose the safest and most effective cleaning method for your furnishings, such as furniture, draperies and upholstery, and personal items, such as clothing, bedding, electronics, kitchen items, artwork, books and photos.

SERVPRO’s digital inventory (including photos) of your possessions tracks each item throughout the restoration process and is used to expedite your insurance claim.

How Fire-Safe Is Your Storrs Home?

12/2/2021 (Permalink)

Two plugs in an outlet Something as simple as a frayed cord could start a house fire. Take the SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield fire-safe tour of your home!

SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield has put together an area-by-area tour of your home that will help you evaluate your risk of having a house fire. This is a good activity to do on a weekend, and it’s even better if your whole family does it together, so everyone can learn about basic fire safety in the home.

Walk through your house, checking the areas one by one. If you come up short anywhere, you can make some quick changes to reduce your chances of suffering a house fire.

Throughout Your Home

  • Check your lighting fixtures. Are you using bulbs with the correct wattage? Are the bulbs 12 inches or more from shades and other combustible materials?
  • Are your electric cords in good condition and not frayed or crushed under carpets or furniture?
  • Are the appliances plugged into each outlet at or below the specified power load?

Basement

  • Make sure the areas around your furnace or boiler, wood stove and water heater are clear of flammable items, especially oily rags.
  • Check the condition of the wires and insulators on your electric breaker panel.

First Floor

  • Is there at least one smoke detector installed and in working condition?
  • Is there a working fire extinguisher in the kitchen?
  • Be sure your stovetop is cleaned of built-up grease and food. Store towels, potholders and other flammable cloths at least three feet away from the stovetop.
  • Look at your fireplace and chimney. Have they been cleaned and inspected within the last year? Be sure your fireplace screen blocks sparks and the area in front of the fireplace is clear of flammable objects.
  • Is your furniture covered in fire-resistant upholstery?

Second Floor

  • You should have a smoke detector in each bedroom and in the hall outside of each sleeping area. Test to be sure all are working.
  • Review (or create if you don’t have one) your fire escape plan.
  • Are space heaters at least three feet away from beds and other flammable materials?
  • Check your electric blankets. Are they UL-approved with undamaged cords?

Laundry Room

  • Check to be sure your dryer cabinet, duct and surrounding area are free of built-up lint.
  • If you have a plastic dryer duct, replace it with a metal one.

Garage

  • Check the door between your house and garage. It must be solid enough and weather-stripped to keep flames and gases from traveling inside your home.
  • Clear your garage of old newspapers, used oil and other flammable materials.
  • Store gasoline in approved containers and put oily rags into air-tight containers. Store these away from sources of ignition.

If you do have a house fire in your Storrs, CT home, call on SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield. We’re the local experts in start-to-finish fire damage restoration services.

Why SERVPRO Cleans Up Your Water Damage ASAP

11/18/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO employees, equipment and vehicles Call SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield to clean up your water, fire, storm or other emergency. We'll get there fast and stop the damage ASAP!

Water disasters—and storm, wind, fire, biohazard and other emergencies—hit quickly and usually with no warning. If it’s your home or business that has been damaged, you need help ASAP. From East Hartford to Union, SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield is ready to respond to your emergency at a moment’s notice, around the clock, because we understand the importance of stopping damage in its tracks and getting the cleanup process started fast.

Our Damage Cleanup Process

SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield will handle the entire damage remediation process, from the time you call us to the time we complete the job of restoring your home or business. Our highly-trained crews have the know-how, tools and equipment to return both your building and your personal property to the way they were before the emergency.

Our time-tested process starts when we arrive promptly at your home or business. We expertly assess the damage, then develop your remediation plan. In many cases, we’ll take immediate action to halt the disaster in its tracks; this may involve tarping or boarding over your roof or windows, or other methods. Our next step is to create a digital inventory of your salvageable possessions before transporting your furniture and belongings to our central Connecticut warehouse for cleaning and storage. Meanwhile, we clean and restore your home or business facility; this may include reconstruction depending on the severity of the damage. Throughout this process, we communicate with your insurer to expedite your claims processing. Finally, we return the contents of your home or business, with all the damage restored.

Every Minute Counts

SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield wastes no time in responding to your disaster because we know that can minimize the damage, meaning fewer repairs will be required—and that can save you time and money!

A water emergency in particular calls for a rapid response, both to halt the spread of water and to remove the water. Water plus time is a recipe for severe damage to your home or business: floors, walls, furniture and possessions all get soaked.

Here’s what happens if you don’t get the water out quickly.

Within 1 hour

  • Water spreads throughout your home or business, and is absorbed into your walls and floors, furniture and upholstery, and personal belongings
  • Documents, books, photos and other paper items swell and warp
  • Furniture finishes begin staining your carpet

Within 1 day

  • Drywall begins to swell and degrade
  • Metal surfaces start to tarnish
  • Wooden furniture begins to swell and crack
  • You’ll notice a musty odor

Within 1 week

  • After just 48 hours, mold and mildew can begin to grow
  • Structural damage occurs as doors, windows, floors and studs swell and warp; paint begins to blister
  • Metal begins to rust and corrode

After just one week without cleanup, the time and cost of restoring your home or business will increase drastically. The more time that goes by, the harder it will be to salvage possessions and furnishings, and the more likely it is that reconstruction will be needed. On top of that, a mold infestation will necessitate a serious remediation effort. Avoid all that hassle by calling SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield ASAP!

We’re Here for You

The team at SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield has the training and experience to quickly clean up and restore your home or business after just about any disaster. Call SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield (860.649.0836) any time.

Prepare for the Next Storm: Gather Your Information (Step 1)

11/4/2021 (Permalink)

Wreckage of a neighborhood destroyed by a tornado Follow these tips from SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield to minimize damage and recover faster from a storm or natural disaster.

Storms come and storms go, and the trick to weathering them is to be prepared! Whether you know there’s a storm heading right toward you and your home or not (yet!), you and your family will be much better off if you prepare now for the inevitable next storm or natural disaster.

We at SERVPRO recommend you take a series of steps to be in the best position possible to minimize storm damage to your home and to get through the storm and its aftermath safely and as comfortably as possible. We recommend starting ASAP on these tasks, because some of them will require planning and time to accomplish. But when you have checked off the items on our list, you’ll be glad that you are as prepared as you can be!

Gather and Store Important Information

The first thing to do to prepare for a storm or natural disaster is to pull together in one place the information you may need if your home or property is damaged or if you need to evacuate. This step can be a bit time-consuming, so we recommend doing it over a weekend or over the course of a couple of weeks.

  • Check your coverage. Review your homeowners coverage with your insurance agent or representative once a year. Consider updating or adding new coverages to reflect your current needs.
  • Gather and protect your documents. You should have a waterproof, fireproof container in which you keep copies of important documents and records, such as identification, passports, birth and marriage certificates, insurance policies, bank and mortgage records, automobile titles and proof of vaccination. You could also protect important keepsakes or family photos in the safe box, if there’s room.
  • Document your home and possessions. Set aside some time, perhaps on a weekend, to do a room-by-room inventory of your possessions. It’s a good idea to take photos or videos. Write down serial/model numbers, purchase dates, prices and, for art or jewelry, appraisal values.

    If a storm or other disaster causes damage in your home, you can then take a new set of photos and videos to show the damage. Store the photos/videos and inventory document in that safe box at home; keep a duplicate set either uploaded to the cloud (digital records) or stored in a bank’s safe deposit box (paper copies).

When a Storm Hits

Another important way to prepare for a storm or natural disaster is to pre-select the damage restoration company you will use. SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield is ready and able to come out to your home promptly, evaluate the damage, create a plan to remediate it, then go to work on cleaning and restoring your possessions and your home to before-storm condition.

Prepare for the Next Storm: Make a Plan (Step 2)

11/4/2021 (Permalink)

A hurricane forms in the sky Be ready before the big storm hits! Prepare now for storm damage and disruption with these tips from SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield.

The time to do basic storm-ready preparation is long before the storm arrives. Storms and other natural disasters are happening more frequently and are more intense, so one of the smartest things we all can do is to be as prepared as possible for the damage and disruption a storm can bring.

SERVPRO may be in the business of storm damage remediation—and we have seen it all—but we hope you will follow our recommended steps to be ready to weather a storm and its aftermath. These steps will require a little time to cross off your list, so make it a priority to set aside an afternoon to talk through these items. You’ll be glad you did!

Develop a Plan for a Storm or Other Emergency

This is another step you should take well before a storm is forecast for your area. You’ll want to gather your family members together to agree on a plan and to be sure everyone understands the details.

  • Make an escape plan. In case you need to evacuate your home, you should know in advance where you will go. Choose both a local place you can all walk to and a more distant location if the evacuation affects a wider area around your home. Those locations may be a public shelter or a relative’s or friend’s home. Map out the evacuation route and consider practicing it. Also, choose a meeting place in case you are separated when the storm hits.
  • Pick a contact person outside of your area. This may be a friend or family member who will be your point of contact for information and communicating if you are safe.
  • Join forces with your neighbors. When a disaster hits, it’s often your neighbors who can offer the most help. Share contact information and talk through some of the actions you can take to help one another and stay safe together.
  • Check your first aid kit. Make sure your first aid kit is fully stocked, supplement it if not, review the contents with your family and consider taking a first aid class through the American Red Cross.
  • Pack a go bag. Stuff a duffel or backpack with meds you need to take, a supply of shelf-stable food and water, first aid supplies, important papers (ID, insurance, etc.), contact information and more.

After a Storm 

Another step in getting ready for a storm or natural disaster is to know which area company you will use for damage restoration. Consider SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield: we’re the local expert in fire, water and storm damage remediation. We will arrive quickly, gauge the damage, develop a remediation plan, inventory and remove damaged possessions, clean and restore them, and do necessary repairs to your home.

SERVPRO Handles the Biggest Storms and Natural Disasters

9/17/2021 (Permalink)

Man adjusts equipment in a truck SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield is part of a national team of experts in major storm damage cleanup.

We’ve all seen the headlines, and many of us have experienced it firsthand: hurricanes, tropical storms and other storms are getting bigger, happening more often and causing much more damage. The wind speeds are often greater, and sometimes, hurricanes or tropical storms linger over an area, shedding vast amounts of rain. Even worse, one storm is often followed by another, with little time to recover in between.

The result? Americans are suffering more frequent and intense storm damage than we used to. The need for experienced, professional storm damage restoration is growing, too. And in the aftermath of a big storm, lots of homeowners need lots of help to repair, rebuild and restore their homes and possessions.

As a nationwide expert, SERVPRO has a well-deserved reputation for coming to the rescue after a major storm. That’s because more than a decade ago, SERVPRO created a division devoted solely to handling damage from large-scale storms and natural disasters.

The SERVPRO corporation, headquartered in Gallatin, Tennessee, learned a lot in its response to the 2010 Nashville floods.
