When Water Causes More Than Surface Damage… | SERVPRO of Darien/New Canaan

7/26/2023 (Permalink)

Storms mess up your home renovation? Call SERVPRO of Darien/New Canaan to get you back to normal.

A recent storm passing through town knocked a tree into the house. The tree branches snagged through the roof shingles, ripping a hole in the roof. Then the rains poured in, with water ending up exactly where you don’t want it to be—inside your home.

That scenario is all too common. Storm damage can yield water damage, which can yield structural damage. All of that joins together to create a huge, expensive mess.

While smaller instances of water damage, like a leak from the kitchen sink], can usually be handled through some minor restoration work, bigger water damage disasters require a more substantial response. When that happens, our SERVPRO® team is prepared to handle the construction services needed to finish out your restoration project.

Handling Your Construction Needs

When a disaster strikes, you can reach SERVPRO 24/7. Once you get in touch, the restoration process begins. We will ask a series of questions to identify the damage you’re facing and your specific needs, which helps us build a project plan.

In cases of major water damage, particularly those that impact the structure of your home in a significant way, that plan will include cleaning up the damage with our innovative water damage restoration process and then restoring your home with our construction capabilities.

We’ll complete your project from start to finish, providing you with an inspection and an estimate, mitigation of the existing water problem, and restoration and reconstruction to make your house look “Like it never even happened.” We’ll even work with your insurance company to provide them with the details needed to process your claim seamlessly.

An Added Benefit

When you see construction work on TV or in the movies, there are often what seems like a bazillion different people running around. Using multiple vendors to complete a project can lead to chaos quickly.

That’s what makes working with SERVPRO different. Because we can handle all your restoration and construction needs, the process is simplified. 

You’ll have one point of contact, which can save you from unnecessary headaches and worry. And you’ll have the assurance of knowing we know every detail of the project from beginning to end.

Nighttime Fire Safety | SERVPRO of Darien/New Canaan

6/16/2023 (Permalink)

Your home is your sanctuary. If you experience a fire, call SERVPRO of Darien/New Canaan to restore your home.

Is there anything better than crawling into a warm bed at the end of the day? The kids are resting peacefully, the dishes are done (or the lights are turned off in the kitchen so you can’t see them) and the animals have all had their last potty breaks for the night. Time to take a deep breath and rest, right?

When you and your home are prepared for fires, even in the middle of the night, this statement can be completely true. Make sure you have the plans in place to keep your family safe and the equipment your home needs so you can start sawing logs faster.

Fire Safety Plans

None of us want to think about a disaster happening, but when we don’t, it can make the situation much worse and our losses greater, especially if we are caught off-guard while we sleep. In order to be able to respond quickly and safely when you aren’t functioning at full steam, you need a solid fire safety plan.

Create an escape plan with your entire family. Have the kids help you figure out the fastest ways out of their bedrooms, and pick a spot you can all safely get to and meet in the dark.

Assign a family member the task of grabbing pets on the way out, and talk to siblings about helping each other safely escape. Make sure everyone knows what your smoke detectors sound like so they can wake up and get moving when needed.

Pack an emergency kit and store it somewhere that can be accessed as you exit your home. If you have young kids, add in some comfort items to help them feel safe and secure.

Pick an evening to practice your safety plan, and make it fun to avoid building anyone’s fear. Stash some glow sticks in your meeting spot and surprise the kids once everyone comes together. This will help them remember where to go and keep anxiety low.

Extra Nighttime Steps

Once you have solidified your fire safety plan, add a few extra steps into your bedtime routine for increased fire safety.

While smoke alarms should be installed near all sleeping areas, closing your door at night can also help protect you while you sleep. A closed door both cuts down on the amount of smoke that can get in and keeps the room from heating up as quickly, which means you have more time to wake up and get out. Keep flashlights near beds so you can quickly shed light on the situation and guide your way to safety.

Never leave open flames burning overnight, and keep flammable objects away from heat sources. That means making sure there are no materials near your fireplace, space heaters or candles. Unplug as much as you can at night as well, and never overload electrical outlets.

The more steps you take before you doze off, the safer you can stay. Give yourself the gift of good sleep by creating and practicing a good safety plan that keeps everyone protected.

Have you experienced a fire in your home? Contact us day or night to get restoration started fast.

Flooding Rain, Are You Prepared? We Are!

SERVPRO of Darien/New Canaan is available 24/7 when water damages your property. Call us anytime!

Storm surge flooding during hurricanes is a serious threat. Storm surge is one of the most important stats a meteorologist uses to predict how much damage might occur in a hurricane. This is the height they expect the tide will rise above the normal high tide. Storm surge has caused severe damage in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, & Rhode Island.

Recent years have seen an increase in flooding from slow-moving storms that drop a tremendous amount of rain. These storms are capable of causing millions of dollars of damage and have caused more property damage in recent years than storm surge because slow-moving storms can cause more damage to larger areas. Sometimes, an area may receive more rain in 48 hours than it does in a month. Extreme rainfall can cause overflow flooding in low-lying areas, storm drains, and rivers.

SERVPRO is ready for any extreme weather event. We are dedicated to providing full restoration services, including construction and remediation, as well as the best possible response to the event's immediate aftermath.
