Enjoying the Fireworks: Fire Safety This Summer

6/23/2022 (Permalink)

Fireworks The NFPA reports that every year, the number of fires started by fireworks exceeds 19,500.

The 4th of July, in addition to many other summer festivities, are often distinguished by fireworks. The two go hand-in-hand; you can’t really have summer without fireworks. The National Fire Protection Agency reports that consumer fireworks- that is, fireworks marketed to people who are not professionals- account for thousands of injuries every year. The potential pitfalls of fireworks being utilized by those who are not professionals range from fires to devastating burn injuries, and even death. Therefore, it is important to be familiar with the safety risks associated with fireworks before your summer celebrations. 

Fireworks and Their Fire Safety Hazards

The NFPA offers a list of fire safety statistics associated with fireworks. They report that every year, the number of fires started by fireworks exceeds 19,500. This means that unprofessional fireworks threaten the safety of properties, both residential and commercial, in the surrounding area. According to the National Safety Council, out of the 19,500 fires caused by fireworks every year, 1,300 are structural fires and 300 are vehicle fires. Both organizations advise against using fireworks at home and instead, recommend that fireworks are left to the professionals. Attend a professional fireworks show or watch a televised show in order to enjoy the holiday tradition while avoiding disaster and keeping everyone safe.

When Using Legal Fireworks…

Some consumer fireworks, like sparklers, are legal in Baltimore County, but backyard fireworks are illegal in Maryland. If you choose to use legal consumer fireworks this summer, consider these fire safety recommendations:

  • Never light fireworks indoors
  • Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks. If a child wants to hold a sparkler, make sure that an adult is present to supervise, as sparklers burn at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby in case a fire ignites
  • Once the fireworks finish burning, hose them down or douse them with water before disposing of them to make sure that they are completely extinguished

If your residential or commercial property experiences fire damage this summer, call SERVPRO of Hunt Valley and Harford County at (410) 229-0012 right away.

Residential Lightning Hazards

6/17/2022 (Permalink)

Lighting over a city Indoor lightning safety is just as important as outdoor lightning safety.

Did you know that almost one-third of injuries sustained from lightning strikes occur indoors, as assessed by The Centers for Disease Control? You may be familiar with lightning safety when outdoors, such as the necessity to get out of the pool at the first rumble of thunder. However, indoor lightning safety is just as important. While lightning is dangerous any time of the year, lightning occurs most frequently during the summer, which means that now is the time to become acquainted with indoor lightning safety in order to protect your home and those living in it.

Lightning- if it strikes a residential structure- can be a serious fire hazard. According to Weather.gov, “each spark of lightning can reach over five miles in length, soar to temperatures of approximately 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and contain 100 million electrical volts.” All this considered, lightning is powerful enough to ignite detrimental fires in residential structures and the electrical currents sent through homes as a result of lightning can pose significant safety risks to those living in the home. In the next portion of this blog, we’ll share some helpful indoor lightning safety tips.

Keep Your Distance from Electrical Equipment

We’ve learned that lightning can contain 100 million electrical volts, so it is imperative that you refrain from using electrical equipment during thunderstorms in order to prevent electrical shock or fire. Because lightning can travel through electrical currents, like those employed by radios and televisions, it is crucial to refrain from using devices that involve such equipment, like a corded landline. Instead, stay informed using a battery-powered radio or your smartphone. It can also be helpful to purchase surge protectors to protect your electrical appliances in the event of powerful storms. 

Avoid Plumbing and Water

Just as it is important to get out of the pool or the ocean during a thunderstorm when outdoors, avoiding water and plumbing indoors is recommended. Lightning can travel through a property’s plumbing, which makes showering, taking a bath, washing the dishes, and other activities utilizing water dangerous during a thunderstorm. 

Shelter in the Safest Area Possible

Lastly, be sure to seek shelter in the safest area of your home. In order to do this, do not seek shelter on porches. Instead, move to an interior room of the home and keep your distance from windows and doors. It may also come as a surprise that it is recommended to stay away from concrete floors and walls, as lightning can travel through concrete walls and flooring.

Workplace Fire Hazards

6/9/2022 (Permalink)

Fire alarm The ability to recognize fire hazards in commercial workplaces is important for the safety of employers and employees alike.

We often hear about home fire safety, but the ability to recognize fire hazards in commercial business settings is just as important for the safety of employers and employees alike. Today’s blog will introduce three unexpected fire hazards for commercial businesses. By familiarizing yourself with workplace fire hazards, you can better protect your commercial property and those working in them.

Circuits

Almost every commercial property is equipped with electrical circuits, which are usually met with a plethora of electronic devices to which they must provide power. As a result, it is common for electrical outlets to be overloaded in workplaces. Even though it may not appear to be a fire hazard on the surface, this practice ultimately results in overheating of the circuits and, from this, fires igniting. In order to avoid the possibility of circuits overloading, be sure to unplug devices when they are not in use. 

Dust

Did you know that dust can cause fires to ignite in commercial workplace environments? A variety of surface types, ranging from metal to wood, can experience a buildup of dust. If this dust sits on top of surfaces for extended periods of time, it can become a fire hazard. In a workplace environment, dust can accumulate on computers, phones, filing cabinets, and even cords. In order to decrease your workplace’s risk for fire, be sure to regularly clean dust off of surfaces, including hard-to-reach areas. 

Flammable Liquids and Materials

There are a wide array of flammable liquids and objects commonly found in workplaces for many different reasons. If there are flammable liquids inside of your workplace, be sure to contain them and limit their exposure to sparks of flames by keeping them sealed and located in a dry place. Likewise, for combustible objects like paper materials or fabrics such as curtains, it is crucial to keep them tidy and organized. If a fire ignites, even a small spark can cause these flammable materials to catch fire, facilitating the fire’s spread and growth, which can be detrimental to the property. If possible, keep important papers in drawers or cabinets so as to prevent papers from sitting out in the open. If you have paper trash, be sure to prioritize discarding it as soon as possible.  

Fire Damage in Your Commercial Property? Contact SERVPRO

It is impossible to predict a fire damage emergency, even if your workplace proactively works to prevent fires from igniting. Accidents happen. However, commercial property owners can take comfort in SERVPRO’s professional Commercial Fire Damage Restoration services, our reputable Fire Restoration Process, as well as our ability to Care For Your Fire Damaged Belongings. Call your local office of SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Team - Team Wall, SERVPRO of Hunt Valley and Harford County, at (410) 229-0012 at the first sign of fire damage to make it “Like it never even happened” after any emergency.

Summer Thunderstorms: Knowing What to Expect

6/3/2022 (Permalink)

Summer thunderstorm Did you know that there are multiple types of thunderstorms that vary in severity?

During the summer months, there is an increased risk of thunderstorms. Did you know that there are multiple types of thunderstorms that vary in severity? In this blog, utilizing information compiled by NOAA's National Severe Storm Laboratory, we’ll talk about what you can expect with each of these different kinds of thunderstorms. Keep reading to learn how SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Team - Team Wall can help in the event that a summer thunderstorm results in storm damage.

Single-Cell Thunderstorm

Especially on a hot summer afternoon, single cell thunderstorms are not unusual. This type of thunderstorm is typically short and weak, ending within an hour. While they may be brief, single cell thunderstorms often feature heavy rain, as well as occasional lightning.

Multi-Cell Thunderstorms

In comparison to single cell thunderstorms, multi-cell thunderstorms can last an hour to many hours. They are also stronger in nature, producing heavier rain that can lead to flooding, in addition to strong winds, tornadoes, and hail. 

Squall Line

As opposed to single and multi-cell thunderstorms, a squall line is a group of consecutive storms, forming a line. It is typical of squall lines to produce high winds and heavy rain. While they appear stronger, like multi-cell thunderstorms, they usually pass over an area quickly and are less likely to produce tornadoes. Sometimes, there can be super squalls, which can last closer to an hour.

Derecho

A derecho is a very rare weather event that is characterized by a lengthy storm with strong winds, alongside rain showers and thunderstorms that move rapidly. Often, derechos can cause destruction comparable to that of a tornado. However, property owners can take comfort in the fact that derechos occur at a very infrequent rate.

The Need to Know About Mold This Summer

5/27/2022 (Permalink)

Mold growth Mold thrives in warm environments, so summer and its temperature changes make for a particularly fruitful time for mold growth.

Summer is almost here, and with all the fun that entails, it is important to understand that it is also a time of year in which mold growth is more likely to occur. Why is that? During the summer, there is often increased humidity, which means that there is more moisture in the air and on surfaces. Mold also thrives in warm environments, so summer and its temperature changes make for a particularly fruitful time for mold growth. Today, we’ll introduce you to three of the most common types of mold in homes and share with you the ways in which we care for them.

Categories of Mold

Three different types of mold that are most commonly found in homes are alternaria, stachybotrys (black mold), and cladosporium. Alternaria is the most common variety of allergenic mold. Water damaged and damp areas within the home, such as showers, bathtubs, and leaking sinks, are prone to the growth of Alternaria if preventative measures are not taken. Black mold, stachybotrys, appears black, as its name suggests, and is commonly found in damp areas, as well as the spaces around ventilation systems if they leak during the summer. Lastly, Cladosporium is usually blue/green to brown or black in color and can be found on decaying plant surfaces.

How We Care for Mold & Our 5 Principles of Mold Remediation

Here at SERVPRO, we abide by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification’s S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation. The IICRC outlines three condition levels for mold remediation, which include: 1) Normal Fungal Ecology, 2) Settled Spores, and 3) Actual Growth. Our primary focus when handling mold is containment, as we aim to prevent spread. Through the use of advanced technologies like negative air chambers, which isolate the affected area with negative air pressure and physical barriers, prevent mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. Additionally, we ensure thorough results through our 5 principles of mold remediation: 

  1. Safety and Health
  2. Documentation
  3. Control Contaminants
  4. Remove the Contamination
  5. Correct the Moisture Problem

We also consult an Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP), who conducts final clearance testing as soon as the moisture problem is corrected.

HVAC Fire Hazards and Safety

5/20/2022 (Permalink)

HVAC Unit Did you know that HVAC units, if not maintained properly, can pose certain fire hazards?

Your home or business’ HVAC unit is meant to keep your building cool in the summer, but did you know that HVAC units, if not maintained properly, can pose certain fire hazards? HVAC fires can be devastating. In this blog, we’ll share three common causes of HVAC fires so that you can be prepared to protect your home or business from a fire emergency resulting from your HVAC unit.

Overheated Motor

One of the most common causes of HVAC units catching fire is the unit’s motor overworking, which increases heat and therefore can pose a risk for a fire to ignite. Your HVAC unit’s motor might overheat for a few different reasons. Firstly, if there is any dirt or debris in the area surrounding your HVAC unit’s motor, the dirt can behave as an insulator, which causes the motor to overheat. In order to avoid this situation, make sure that your HVAC unit is cleaned regularly. Secondly, your unit’s motor may overheat as a result of too much or too little voltage powering the motor.

Electrical Issues

It is possible for your HVAC unit to catch fire as a result of wiring or electrical issues. Over time, electrical connections naturally loosen. Frayed or corroding wires that are not repaired in a timely manner can facilitate electrical shorts, which can then result in a fire igniting. To avoid this, be sure to inspect your HVAC unit and its wiring regularly, replacing wires when necessary to avoid electrical complications.

Leaking Fuel Line

Lastly, it is possible for fuel lines to leak, leading to gas leaks. When gas comes into contact with heat, a fire is likely to ignite. It is crucial that, if you smell gas in your home or business surrounding your HVAC unit, you treat the situation as an emergency.

We Are HVAC Professionals

Ultimately, it is recommended that HVAC units are inspected on a biannual basis by an HVAC professional in order to most effectively maintain your HVAC unit and prevent fires. Luckily, you don’t have to look any further than SERVPRO for HVAC maintenance services. The professionals at SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Team - Team Wall routinely inspect HVAC units and provide air duct cleaning services.

Spotlighting Our Employees of the Quarter

4/22/2022 (Permalink)

Employees of the Quarter Introducing our Employees of the Quarter, Kathy Milby and Amanda Berterman.

Reflecting back on this first quarter of 2022, SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Team - Team Wall would like to recognize an “Employee of the Quarter,” an award that celebrates one team member who has consistently upheld the qualities of an exemplary employee of our team throughout the quarter. This quarter, we are excited to announce our Customer Support Coordinator, Kathy Milby, as our centralized  "Employee of the Quarter" and Amanda Berterman as the "Employee of the Quarter" from SERVPRO Team Wall's Hunt Valley and Harford County team.

Kathy Milby

Since joining our team in the fall of 2020, Kathy has stepped into a role that requires providing a superb level of customer service to our insurance agent partners. On a daily basis, she keeps in close communication with agents throughout the lifecycle of a restoration project in order to keep them abreast of the project we are completing for their clients. While this is her job description, her impact on the company extends much further. She prides herself on being the Team Wall’s cheerleader, keeping everyone happy, motivated, and having fun. She takes most pride in promoting awareness and recognition of our team’s continued efforts to obtain Google reviews. Her most recent effort was called the “Google Downs,” in which she held a race between all three offices to see who could get the most Google reviews. And we’ll tell you- it was a nail biter! We ended up gaining 39 total Google reviews in the month of March alone for all of Team Wall thanks to Kathy’s efforts.

In addition to the “Google Downs” initiative, Kathy is always planning fun events to provide the team with a social outlet and keep team morale high. She has organized luncheons, get togethers, and most recently “Pi Day,” in which members of the team competed on “Team Sweet” vs “Team Savory”. Everyone submitted their pie for the contest and a winner was recognized in each category.

Beyond SERVPRO Team Wall, Kathy has been highly involved with the Cockeysville Fire Department since she was a young girl, as her entire family is wholly devoted to this amazing organization. Kathy continues to wow us in her academic pursuit as well, as she is currently enrolled in a Doctorate of History program and is embarking on her long journey to complete her dissertation. 

Kathy’s positive impact on Team Wall is felt in all offices and we feel grateful to have her as part of the team. Thank you for all that you do, Kathy!

Amanda Berterman

The “Employee of the Quarter” for SERVPRO Team Wall’s Hunt Valley and Harford County office is Amanda Berterman. Amanda has been with Team Wall for 6 years and started as an admin for reconstruction before assuming the role of Reconstruction Coordinator in 2020.  This past year, she was promoted to Construction Operations Manager.  We are in awe of Amanda’s organization and persistence, both of which help her reconstruction department achieve its goals.  She is a valued member of our team and we don’t know what we would do without her. We thank you for all you do, Amanda!

Disaster Recovery Team Tackles 3 Monumental Jobs: Job of the Quarter Q1

4/15/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial businesses This quarter, our Disaster Recovery Team handled 3 daunting water loss projects.

Each quarter, we usually select one standout job to spotlight as our “Job of the Quarter,” but this time, we wish to highlight 3 jobs that were all handled by our Disaster Recovery Team division of SERVPRO Team Wall, which, since its initiation about 6 months ago, has handled large losses and storms. The Disaster Recovery Team handled 3 daunting water loss projects this quarter that we can’t wait to share with you in this article. Keep reading to learn more about what our Disaster Recovery Team does, the peace of mind that they help instill in our customers during unthinkable situations, and the reasons as to why these 3 jobs all deserve recognition as “Job(s) of the Quarter.” 

All 3 of these jobs were local to SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Team - Team Wall and, as previously mentioned, were water-losses, requiring a tremendous amount of resources and teamwork. In the past, we would have pulled resources from each of our local markets to produce these jobs, but with our Disaster Recovery Team ready to go, we had everything we needed in house in order to complete the job. The cold weather in late January kept our team on its toes, as we had quite a few jobs come in, many fairly large and with extreme urgency in completion. However, our teams handled the pressure with grace and the fruits of their hard work are illustrated in the details of the following 3 jobs.

Flooding in a Senior Living Facility

A sprinkler system went off inadvertently, flooding 3 levels of a full wing of a senior living center’s facility in Baltimore this quarter. With an extensive restoration process seemingly on the horizon, the customer immediately called SERVPRO Team Wall for help. Our crew was onsite within two hours, equipped with everything they needed to initiate our professional mitigation and emergency services. This project was no small feat, as we had anywhere between 40 to 50 crew members working at any one time throughout the project, so it was all hands on deck. We also provided multiple construction services, including full floor replacement, new coats of paint for affected walls, and new carpet installation. Thanks to our Disaster Recovery Team’s expertise, experience, and hustle, residents of the facility were able to move back into their rooms within just two weeks. 

Frozen Pipes Burst in Assisted Living Facility

When water damage resulted from frozen pipes at an assisted living facility this quarter, affecting 4,000 square feet of the facility’s first level alone, SERVPRO Team Wall’s Disaster Recovery Team had our work cut out for ourselves. Mitigation efforts persisted for 5 days, with repair and construction work in progress for the following 14 days. For the first 5 days, approximately 15 members of our team handled the mitigation aspects, but 25 team members total worked to complete construction and repair work, through tasks such as installation of drywall, insulation, and flooring, as well as trim-work and painting. Along the way, our team faced the issues of containment, noise control, and the pressure to speedily complete the job so as to minimize disruptions to residents and employees’ lives. With the help of our Disaster Recovery Team, our individual, local teams could continue to focus on residential customers who were also experiencing frozen pipes as a result of the cold temperatures. Ultimately, our Disaster Recovery Team was able to meet the customer’s mitigation needs very quickly and efficiently, which helped the construction services go smoothly.  All-in-all, we were able to minimize the downtime for the customer by a number of weeks, restoring a sense of normalcy in everyone’s lives as quickly as possible.

Frozen Pipes Strike Again

The final job that we will spotlight in this article once again involves water damage resulting from broken pipes, but in a large commercial building of approximately 35,000 square feet with multiple tenants. As opposed to the other two jobs, this project did not require construction or repair services, as it was purely mitigation work. Therefore, we were in and out in just 8 days. All the while, anywhere between 35 and 45 crew members completed the mitigation work. Due to the size of the building, large format, 2 - desiccant drying systems with ancillary generators were utilized during the process of drying out the building. Overall, the size of the job presented the biggest challenge to our team, as many areas of the facility required a “full gut” of affected materials in order to effectively and thoroughly mitigate the space. The size of this job, with multiple levels and a 4 story open atrium, provided both a unique and challenging drying environment, but our team persevered to successfully meet the customer’s needs.
