Protecting Your Property During Cold Weather

Cold weather can wreak havoc on your home and business if you're not properly prepared. To help prevent weather-related damages, consider taking the following precautions before winter weather hits.

  • Check your property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather like heavy wind and rain can cause branches to fall.
  • Roofs, water pipes, and gutters should all be inspected to ensure they are in proper order. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your building/ home, and leaves should be cleared away.
  • Clean chimneys and exhaust systems to ensure they are free of debris.
  • Test gas lines if they have been dormant to ensure they are in good working order with no leaks.
  • Inspect your property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
  • Make sure all exterior doors and windows have weather stripping.

Call SERVPRO of Jacksonville Beach/Ponte Vedra at 904-246-6118 if your home or business has suffered damage due to winter weather.

Winter Heating Hazards

1/14/2021 (Permalink)

The winter season is finally here in Florida, and with it comes shorter days and lower temperatures. In an effort to keep our homes and workplaces cozy, many of us use alternative heat sources like fireplaces, portable space heaters, and wood-burning stoves. Did you know heating equipment is the number 1 cause of home fire deaths? According to the National Fire Protection Association, heating equipment fires cause an estimated $1 billion in direct property damage annually. Keep the following safety tips in mind to help reduce your risk of a heating-related fire.

  • Keep anything flammable at least 3 feet away from heating equipment, like a furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or a portable space heater. Have a "kid-free zone" around space heaters.
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks.
  • Remember to turn portable heaters off before leaving the room, or going to bed.
  • Always use the right kind of fuel.
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys inspected every year.
  • Test smoke alarms monthly.

In the unfortunate event that your property suffers fire damage, contact SERVPRO of Jacksonville Beach/Ponte Vedra at 904-246-6118.
