Bring on those mud pies

10/16/2019 (Permalink)

Fall to Winter time brings in the toughest weather struggles. Different type of storms can bring on many different things that you may not think of.

Rainstorms could cause the worse damage. But also the most fun for kids anyways. Bring on those silly laughs and mud pies!

Hopefully for your sake, you have your washroom stocked up with plenty of towels to do a once over wiping those dirty hands down.

If by chance those little rascals come running through the house in excitement or exhaustion, they may not even take a second to take those muddy boots off or rinse off their dirty hands. Watch your carpets!!! Mud is never fun when it's inside your home.

Call SERVPRO of Salem County for that, we can help!

Finally, the time has come for cool evenings by the fire. Whether you have an inside fireplace or a nice firepit outside to sit around and take in that comfortable heat with friends or family. But regardless of where you plan to start up that fire. What do you use for a fire? Wood, right?

Well, cooler weather brings in a few things that you may not see or may not like.

Cooler air brings in the need for more heat. Whether it is oil, gas, wood stove or fireplace. Sometimes higher heating bills. Everyone and everything seeking shelter from the cold.

Termites come to mind as well. To help prevent those tiny pesky little wood eaters. Prop your logs up and away from damp areas after a storm rolls on through. Helps keep them away from your freshly chopped wood!!

Colder days are coming, holiday decorations and appropriate candles are being lit. Many are getting their stockpile of wood set aside for their fireplaces. Fire safety is HUGE this time of year. Make sure to have a safety screen available to put on the fireplace to help contain any sparks and help prevent a possible bigger issue of a fire.

Oh, the joys of Fall and Winter!

As these colder days approach, keep in mind that safety should always come first. When it comes to your home or business, you must prepare for anything that could possible happen.

Check those ducts. Clean those gutters. Keep candles and fireplaces contained. Freshen up your home with a deep carpet cleaning.

Wet leaves cause MOLD

9/30/2019 (Permalink)

Now that summer weather is finally heading out and as excited as we all are for FALL!! It does come with a few down-(falls). When those beautiful leaves float down from the trees from the light breeze, the rainwater also comes along and soaks each and every leaf in its own way. As pretty as it is, those damp leaves can also hold onto that moisture from the rain and eventually allow the forming of mold.

Didn't think about that, huh? Water is the culprit in many cases causing different types of damages in its “waves”.

Well we are here to help you out and give you friendly reminders to help yourself before having to call on us. Do yourself a favor and make sure you take care of those leave piles as they start to form around your property.

No matter what, we all still welcome Fall with open arms!!!!

Pumpkin Fun tips;

Did you know this simple hack can help save your pumpkin from starting to form mold as it sits outside your home until Halloween?

Try these steps out:

Start by cleaning out your pumpkin with soap and water BEFORE you carve it, makes it less "gross" while you clean out those pumpkin “guts”.

Then go along scraping the insides as usual.

Apply diluted bleach to the ENTIRE pumpkin with either a spray bottle or dunking your pumpkin into the bleach/water. (1 Tbsp. bleach per 1 Quart water)

Rub petroleum jelly on ALL of the raw edges to lock in moisture.

Now place your candle or light inside, top it with the pumpkin hat and show it all off!!!

Super simple steps to add to what you probably already do as you carve your masterpiece for the holidays.

Let us know how it works out for you!!
