Floor Tenting: Alternate Drying Methods

6/12/2020 (Permalink)

Floor Tenting This is the plastic tenting built to more efficiently control the humidity and direct the hot dry air.

SERVPRO of Coos Curry and Del Norte Counties has the special drying capabilities to salvage all types of floor coverings.

We were recently drying out solid hardwood and marble tile by a "tenting" method that allows us to better direct and control the heated air.

SERVPRO also used a sandwich of drying chambers to dry the layered materials from top and bottom drying chambers simultaneously. This means setting up a drying chamber in the crawlspace also! We are equipped with smaller units that fit into more confined spaces.

In efforts to salvage the materials, the flooring under the plastic tenting gets heated with the hot dry air.

Local Awareness for Fire Damage in the Summer

6/11/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Coos, Curry & Del Norte Counties would like to spread local awareness on BBQ's or smokers in or next to structures:

SERVPRO recently assisted with the fire damage caused by a smoker that was on the exterior wooden porch.

We would like to remind our community that these type of structures are not able to handle the heat often caused by a smoker or barbeque.

We urge you to move the barbeque out to an open area away from structures, tall grass, or out buildings when in use. Flames can often get much higher than one anticipates causing severe damages, so please have a water hose within reach, and check with local fire departments for permission.

2020 Increase in Local House Fires

6/9/2020 (Permalink)

Coos County House Fires

SERVPRO has seen an increase in residential fires this year, and we want to share some causes with our community to spread awareness:

Unattended Candles -

When candles are left unattended they can cause a fire multiple ways. We want to encourage our community to put out any candles in rooms that are not currently occupied.

Unattended Cooking - 

When ranges or ovens are left unattended we are risking a potential fire to break out. Splashing oil, burned foods, or even unseen substances are extremely flammable. Any time you are cooking we recommend not leaving the kitchen unsupervised as these things can happen in a matter of seconds.

Unattended campfires - 

Campfires or burn barrels should be 50+ ft away from any surrounding structures. Wind can carry flames causing damage to nearby structures. Please do not build fires near any structures.

If you would like more information please call us at 541-808-2600, we are happy to help at SERVPRO of Coos, Curry & Del Norte Counties.
