Christmas Tree Safety
Keep Your Family Safe This Holiday Season
For many families the decorating of the Christmas tree signals the official start of the holiday season. Unfortunately, Christmas trees start approximately 210 house fires each year in the United States. There are a few basic safety tips that can keep your family safe this season while you enjoy your festive holiday decorations:
*Carefully select your tree - look for fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched.
*Place your tree carefully: stay at least three feet away from any heat source including fireplaces, radiators, heat vents or lights. Keep candles away from your tree.
*Examine your lights before decorating your tree. Throw away any strands with broken cords or loose bulb connections. Be sure your lights have been checked for safety in a recognized testing laboratory and only use lights designated for indoor use on your tree.
*Water your tree daily.
*Remove your tree promptly after Christmas or as soon as it is noticeably dry. Be sure to dispose of your tree properly- a dried out tree is a fire hazard if left in your home or garage. Find our if your community has a recycling program for trees.
Enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends. If your home or business suffers a fire or smoke damage, call the restoration professionals at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North and of Anderson. We are available anytime day or night at 317-773-0422.

How Ice Dams Cause Water Damage To Your Home
Freezing temperatures are on the way for Central Indiana and homeowners need to be on the watch for ice dams.
Many of us enjoy the beauty of icicles hanging over the eaves of our home during the winter months. Unfortunately, this can be a sign of an imminent problem for your home. Ice dams are thick ridges of ice that build up along eaves or the lower levels of rooflines. They are created when snow melts on an upper, warmer part of the roof and the meltwater runs down to the colder eaves then freezes. This ice accumulates and forms a blockage. This blockage (or dam) causes the melted water from the roof to back up behind it, flowing under shingles and eventually into the home itself. The result can be serious damage to the exterior of your home, pulling down shingles and gutters. It can also be the cause of wet insulation, walls and warped flooring inside.
The best way to prevent ice dams from occurring is to ensure the air in the attic doesn't get too warm, thus preventing the melting that leads to the build up of ice. Increase insulation to be sure no warm, moist air is able to move from your home's living spaces into the attic area. Maintaining colder temperatures in your attic area is the best way to prevent future ice dams. Properly ventilate your roof so that any warm air that does escape the living space into the attic is carried away.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, ice dams can occur during the winter months and the subsequent water damage to our homes can be devastating. If your home or business has flooding this winter, call the restoration professionals at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North, and of Anderson at 317-773-0422. We are available anytime day or night to make your home "Like it never even happened."

Are You Ready For Winter Storms in Noblesville?
Weather in Central Indiana is known for its unpredictability. It can be balmy and 60 degrees one day and snowy and cold the next. Although it may be hard to control Mother Nature, there are some simple steps we can take to protect our homes and our families when winter storms hit.
*Prepare for power outages: heavy snow and freezing rain are common during winter storms and often lead to power outages. Invest in a battery powered or hand-crank radio so you can stay aware of changing local conditions. A generator is a good idea to power your home until power can be restored. Keep flashlights on every level of your home and don't forget extra batteries!
*Keep three days worth of non-perishable food and water on hand in case you are housebound. Don't forget a manual can opener and food and water for your pets as well!
*Create an emergency preparation kit for your family. Store important family documents such as birth certificates, social security cards, financial records and insurance papers in a waterproof container. Designate an emergency contact for family members to stay connected, preferably someone not impacted by your local weather.
*Maintain your furnace regularly. Keep a supply of firewood, fire starters and heating fuel on hand and make sure your chimney is cleaned of debris from last season.
*Maintain and repair snow removal equipment before you need it!
*Check your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors monthly and replace batteries when necessary.
*Be a good neighbor and check on those who live nearby who may need special assistance during severe weather: the elderly, those living with small children or individuals with special needs or circumstances who may need extra help.
Follow these tips to stay safe this winter. If your home or business is damaged by severe weather this winter call the restoration specialists at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North and of Anderson at 317-773-0422. We can make it "Like it never even happened".
October is Fire Safety Month: Workplace Fire Prevention
October is Fire Safety Month! Ensure your place of business is prepared in the event of a fire emergency by following these simple guidelines.
*Reduce workplace clutter! Unnecessary buildup of paper and supplies can become fuel in the event of a fire. Utilize storage facilities for files that you don't use frequently and remove waste and recycling frequently. Keeping clutter to a minimum will also allow easier access to exits and emergency equipment in case a fire does occur.
*Test sprinklers annually and smoke detectors monthly. Never stack or store items in a way that blocks sprinklers.
*Be sure each employee area has clear exit diagrams and a well lit floor plan. Discuss your company's evacuation plan with your employees.
*Make sure there are an adequate number of working fire extinguishers and be sure all of your employees know how to use them.
*Take care of electrical or wiring problems immediately. Don't overload circuits or extension cords and have a qualified electrician replace frayed or damaged wiring ASAP.
Following these simple tips can make your workplace a safer place in the event of an emergency. If your home or business does experience a fire event, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North, and of Anderson at 317-773-0422.
