According to National Fire Protection Association July is the peak month for grill fires, followed by the months June, May, and August.

For gas/propane grills:

*Check the gas tank for leaks before using it.

*Open the lid on all gas grills before lighting.

For charcoal grills:

*Use only charcoal-started fluid to start the fire.

Never leave the grill unattended and ensure the kids and pets are at least three feet away. Remembering to remove the grease and fat buildup from the trays and grills after each use is important.

Check Your Roof After A Significant Rain Event

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

Checking your roof out for damages Your home's main line of defense is your roof, so check it out before and after rainstorms.

After a significant rain event, it's a good idea to inspect your roof for damage.  Your home's main line of defense is your roof, and in East Davie/Cooper City it takes a beating.

Pay attention to things like dings in your gutters or tears in your window screens, which indicate hail damage. You may see missing tiles or other signs of roof damage from the ground, but most leaks don't represent a need for whole roof replacement. Usually, the leak is coming from something requiring minor roof repair. Find the source of the leak, stop it, and clean any water damage. 

Find the Source of the Leak 

Look for stains that indicate the source of a leak and the area that needs roof repair. You may see water stains on your ceiling or coming down a wall. When you see that, get your flashlight and head to that area. 

Here are five familiar sources for a roof leak:

  1. Vents and fans
  2. Chimneys
  3. Window dormers
  4. Vent pipes
  5. Unsecured nails and nail holes

To complete your roof repair:

  1. Start looking for materials damaged by water.
  2. Check for discolorations and rotting wood and wet drywall and insulation.
  3. When you find mold, remain careful and don't spread it during cleanup.

SERVPRO of EastDavie/Cooper City are specialists in water and mold remediation. Our trained technicians create a containment area while working on water and mold damage. Mold can begin growing on wet damaged materials in as little as 48 hours. Drying is critical to preventing mold, so don't procrastinate, or try to clean up the water damage yourself.  Call the professionals at 954-741-4321 or 954-725-6400

How We Find Water Damage That You Can't See

4/26/2022 (Permalink)

The use of thermal detection device shows evidence of water intrusion. .  are often the first step in locating moisture Using a thermal detection device can accurately show the presence of water and how far the water traveled.

Part of SERVPRO of East Davie/Cooper City's success in restoring water-damaged homes depends on knowing exactly where to find moisture beyond the naked eye can see.

Moisture detection and discovery devices were a critical component of the work that we did in a Davie home. Even small water damages have the potential to cause serious structural and indoor air quality issues over time.

The key to avoiding costly future restoration is to handle every water problem as a real threat to your property. Our SERVPRO technicians have the equipment, training, and experience to find and dry unseen water before secondary damages occur.

Here are a few of the tools used by SERVPRO of East Davie/Cooper City Professionals.

  • Moisture Sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls.
  • Moisture Meters are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate readings.
  • Thermalhygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. When armed with this information, SERVPRO Professionals can calculate and create an environment most conducive to drying. When facing a contaminated water loss, it is not only important to dry the structure, but the structure must also be disinfected and often deodorized.
  • Ultra-Low-Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. This device can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.
  • Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products by creating a dense fog. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor-causing particles.

The proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing the damage expense from a water loss.  Thermal imagery helps reduce unnecessary penetration of a wall, especially when exposed materials might be costly to remove or to be replaced. This saves our customers money and time.
