Everyday Behavior and Habits

Everyday Behavior and Habits:

Our behavior in our everyday tasks, even though we don't realize it, can be hazardous to our everyday living. We can create unsafe habits that we don not realize can be the cause of a major accident. Nobody intends on causing a disaster, but we can learn how to change our behavior, by paying attention to our actions.

When cooking never leave food unattended on the store top. Food can spill, burn, or even catch fire. Always make sure to keep the underside of your stove top clean from spilled oils and foods. Keeping this area free of oils and debris will lessen the chances of fire starting under your stove top. Clean your oven regularly, foods tend to spill in the oven even when we do not realize it. These foods keep getting cooked down until they get to a point where they become a fire hazard. Cooking with oil is another area where taking caution is a good idea. Always make sure your oil is not overly heated when putting frozen foods into it. Oil that is over heated tend to pop and boil over when frozen foods get put into them, the water creates a dangerous combination making it highly probable for fires to start.

Always turn your water off when going on vacation, or leaving for multiple days in a row. This can help prevent a small leak from creating a big problem. Do not leave water running for baths, dishes, and even if you are just filling something up if you are leaving the room. It is incredible how fast something can over flow and cause major water damage. Inspect your pipes often, this can prevent small leaks or cracks from becoming broken pipes. Water valves should be checked when ever you use them, make sure water is not coming out of any seals or threading.

When decorating your home, make sure not to put your furniture directly against any outside walls. Outside walls can build up moisture if not given the proper circulation of air, and nobody want mold growing on their walls. keep your relative humidity low in your home to prevent mold growth. keeping a small dehumidifier running if you live in a very humid area can be beneficial. Any moisture that is not cleaned up and left, has the potential to become mold growth, Mold only take 72 hours to start forming.

If you experience any of these problems and you find yourself needing help to get your home back to looking "Like it never even happened," give SERVPRO of Coos, Curry, and Del Norte Counties, we are a 24hour/7 days a week emergency service and we can be reached at 541-808-2600.

Preventing Mold is Important for your homes health and your own

  • Mold can start to grow in as little as 72 hours.
  • Keeping you furniture away from walls can help to prevent mold growth by allowing airflow behind your furniture preventing moisture'
  • Make sure you have double paned windows to prevent condensation build up, which allows moisture build up, stimulating the growth of mold.
  • Mold grows above 40 degrees, the ideal temperature for mold growth is between 77 and 86 degrees, mold needs moisture to grow so hot humid conditions are ideal for mold.
  • Keeping a dehumidifier can help prevent the growth of mold by keeping the moisture levels down in your home.
  • Mold can cause many health issues for the home owners, and can be even more dangerous for people with breathing issues or other medical conditions.
  • Mold spreads very easily and needs to be properly removed form a home. If mold is wiped or even sprayed with a substance the spore will spread, having containment setup is the best way to stop the contamination of the rest of the home.

10 Things You Need to do to Keep Rainwater Out of Your Home

9/21/2023 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Coos, Curry, and Del Norte Counties understands the trouble it can be just trying to prevent damages from happening to your home. Believe it or not there are ten easy steps you can take to keep rainwater out of you home.

  1. Increase grade: Increasing the grade away from your home will help to keep the rainwater running away from your home.
  2. Clean rain gutters: Keeping rain gutters clear will help to minimize water running down the side of your home, eventually leading to water getting into your home.
  3. Divert down spouts: Buy running down to hardware store, you can pick up a piece of black plastic that attaches to your down spout and diverts water away from the home.
  4. Roof maintenance: simple observations can save your home when it comes to roof maintenance. A roof can have missing shingle, cracks in a tin roof and holes and the rubber membrane can be devastating.
  5. Window Repair: Repairing the cracked or improper caulking on the outside of your windows can be the difference between staying dry and needing to call for help.
  6. Sweep away debris: Debris build up around the home can clog drains, leading up to water build up and potential disaster.
  7. Expand exterior drains: expanding surface area of drains can prevent clogging and over flow.
  8. Construct a swale ditch: Constructing a ditch and filling it with rock will help divert water away from homes, especially on flat ground.
  9. Exterior French drains: For homes situated on slopes, building an exterior French drain, including a subterranean ditch can divert water away from homes.
  10. Install a sump pump: When all else fails a sump pump might do the trick. A sump pump takes the water from a location its not supposed to be and moves it to a better location.
