Fire Damage Fire safety in your Cincinnati residence Be prepared to stop fires and save lives

Today I want to discuss fire safety and bring up a few basic thoughts about this topic. We as a country are becoming more accustomed to tragedy and traumatic events thus lending us less phased by these occurrences. In my opinion it would be good practice to take the time toeducate your family and or co-workers on basic fire safety. I understand that to most this is common sense however the more we prepare for something the better we react in a time of crisis. This is especially true today with the change inthe materials used to make furnitureand otherhousehold items. Studies show the nearly forty years ago if a fire were to break out a person had about seventeen minutes to safely exit the structure. Now days the time toexithas drastically dropped causing the needto be preparedmore critical than ever. Please take the time to share this with your loved ones.It only take an ounce of preparation. 513-561-7378

Water Damage Frozen Pipes in Greater Cincinnati Ohio Frozen Water Spigot

It is the time of year when we need to be on the lookout for frozen water pipes. All residential and commercial properties with running water are at a risk for this type of problem. Facing sub zero temperatures can often pose many types of problems. One that we see all too often is the frozen pipe. Now many times this can be prevented with a little bit of forethought and preparation. Let the cold water drip from an open faucet can help prevent a full on freeze. A second option is to add heat to your pipes and or the area the plumbing runs through. This is not always a realistic option for all situations. Both options have a negative impact on the environment by using resources however the cost often out weighs the damages caused by a frozen water line. If the cold weather strikes your property call SERVPRO at 513-561-7378

Duct Cleaning in Ohio

Cleaning Duct Cleaning in Ohio Dirty Duct

Today I want to discuss indoor air quality and the necessity of clean duct work. Most homes built these days are constructed so well that natural air infiltration does not occur. This being said the quality of the air we breath may not be what you think it is and lends us to take a look at what we can control.Arguably thebiggest influencer in air quality is the home HVAC system. That would stand to reason its need to be maintained and kept clean. Not all homes will have the same amount of dust ,dirt and allergens found in the ductwork but all home have ductwork that can and should be cleaned. The frequency of cleaning depends on multiple factors and quite honestly can change for many reasons. We recommend a whole system cleaning and maintenance check annually but this is also asuggestion not a requirement.
