The importance of learning about hurricanes

9/3/2020 (Permalink)

If you live in an area that’s prone to hurricanes, the best way to protect yourself, your family, and your property are to make preparations well in advance. Here are a few things you can do.

Make an emergency plan. Review your community’s evacuation routes. Discuss where you’ll meet your family, how to get to a safe place, and how you’ll get in touch if you’re separated.

Include your pet in your plans. Make sure your pet has been microchipped or has ID tags with a current phone number. Track down a pet-friendly hotel or emergency shelter and keep a sturdy carrier on hand so you can bring your pet with you.

Stock up on supplies. Put together a kit to keep in your car. It should contain enough nonperishable food and water for several days, along with flashlights (and batteries), a first-aid kit, and a weather radio.

Do a home inventory. Make a list of your household items and their estimated value. Store the list and your insurance policy in a safe place either online or somewhere outside your home.

Fortify your home against wind damage. Install building code-approved hurricane shutters or plywood window covers. Reinforce door hinges, screws, and seals.

Secure your outdoor property. Loose items in your yard can be swept up by high winds and cause damage. Make sure trash cans, grills, swing sets, and patio furniture are stored indoors or tied down.

And of course, it’s always a good idea to make sure your insurance is up to date and up to snuff.

Be Prepared: 

Tips from FEMA for preparing your Westminster home or business for a flood. 

Before the Flood:

  • Have a qualified professional elevate the furnace, water heater and electrical panel if susceptible to flooding. 
  • Installing "check valves" in sewer traps to prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home or business. 
  • Seal walls in basement with waterproofing compounds to help avoid seepage. 

During the Flood:

  • Turn off utilities at the main switches of valves if instructed to do so. 
  • Disconnect electrical appliances. 
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water
  • Do not walk through moving water. Even six inches of moving water can make you fall. 

After the Flood:

  • Listen for news reports to learn if the community's water supply is safe to drink. 
  • Avoid floodwaters. Water may be contaminated by oil, gasoline or raw sewage. Water may also be electrically charged. 
  • Stay out of any building if it is surrounded by floodwaters. 

Return home only when authorities indicate it is safe.

Water Conservation

Water Faucet Call SERVPRO of Westminster today!

Living in California has been difficult with the earthquakes, wildfires, and lack of rain. Even though statistics say that there is no longer a drought, it's still a good idea to conserve water. Here are some tips to help you conserve water.

Tip #1: Pay Attention To Faucets 

Not only is this a great way to help you save water, but it also helps you save money. Leaving faucets on can be a huge waste of water. Be considerate on how much water you need. 

Tip #2: Cut Your Shower Time

The average American uses about 17 gallons of water in around 8 minutes while showering. It is best to take a shower that's at least 5 minutes or less. A great way to time your shower is to take a "one song shower" since the average song is about 3-5 minutes long. 

Tip #3: Fix Leaking Pipes

The sooner you spot a leak, the sooner it can get fixed. A leaking pipe can waste about 5 gallons of water to 2,000 a year. Not only are wasting water and money, but this can also lead to water damage. 

If water damage in your home or business does happen, you can trust SERVPRO of Westminster so fix the damage. Call (714)248-9261 if you have any questions/concerns. Or visit our website at www.SERVPROwestminster.com for more information

Sewer backup is what happens when water comes up or is pushed into your home through the pipes from sewer or drainage systems. Typically, this type of water is unsanitary since it involves dirty water from the sewers. Not only can this water ruin personal property, but it can also impact your help. 

Potential Sources of Sewage Backup 

It is possible that the cities main can get blocked, causing water to back up in your home. Backup can also occur when sewer systems need repairs. In addition, older pipes can cause a backup. At times, tree roots can find their way into pipes and cause blockages.
