Summer Grill Out Safety Tips for Wilkes-Barre, PA

7/10/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Summer Grill Out Safety Tips for Wilkes-Barre, PA Grill Safety First! - Dinner Second!

Grill Out Safely this Summer!

On average it's estimated that 7,000 individuals are injured every year from improper use of barbecue grills. 

Follow these Safety Tips from Underwriters Laboratories to prevent injury or fire damage to your home or property: 

Do:

1. Keep your grill at least 10 feet away from your house. Farther is even better. This includes portions attached to your house like carports, garages and porches. Grills should not be used underneath wooden overhangs either, as the fire could flare up into the structure above. This applies to both charcoal and gas grills.

2. Clean your grill regularly. If you allow grease and fat to build up on your grill, they provide more fuel for a fire. Grease is a major source of flare ups.

3. Check for gas leaks. You can make sure no gas is leaking from your gas grill by making a solution of half liquid dish soap and half water and rubbing it on the hoses and connections. Then, turn the gas on (with the grill lid open.) If the soap forms large bubbles, that's a sign that the hoses have tiny holes or that the connections are not tight enough.

4. Keep decorations away from your grill. Decorations like hanging baskets, pillows and umbrellas look pretty AND provide fuel for a fire. To make matters worse, today's decor is mostly made of artificial fibers that burn fast and hot, making this tip even more important.

5. Keep a spray bottle of water handy. That way, if you have a minor flare-up you can spray it with the water to instantly calm it. The bonus of this tip is that water won't harm your food, so dinner won't be ruined!

6. Keep a fire extinguisher within a couple steps of your grill. And KNOW HOW TO USE IT. If you are unsure how to use the extinguisher, don't waste time fiddling with it before calling 911. Firefighters say many fire deaths occur when people try to fight a fire themselves instead of calling for expert help and letting the fire department do its job.

Don't:

7. Turn on the gas while your grill lid is closed. NEVER do this. It causes gas to build up inside your grill, and when you do light it and open it, a fireball can explode in your face. 

8. Leave a grill unattended. Fires double in size every minute. Plan ahead so that all of your other food prep chores are done and you can focus on grilling.

9. Overload your grill with food. This applies especially fatty meats. The basic reason for this tip is that if too much fat drips on the flames at once, it can cause a large flare-up that could light nearby things on fire.

10. Use a grill indoors. People often think it will be safe to use a grill, especially a small one, indoors. NOT TRUE. In addition to the fire hazard,grills release carbon monoxide, the deadly colorless, odorless gas. That gas needs to vent in fresh air or it can kill you, your family and pets.

Please use caution when grilling out with friends and family this summer. We're always one call away when accidents happen, and are Here To Help. Contact us 24/7 for emergency fire restoration services - 570-714-0090

And knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens" speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be.

Professional Crime Scene Cleaning in Wilkes-Barre, PA

6/9/2017 (Permalink)

Biohazard Professional Crime Scene Cleaning in Wilkes-Barre, PA Biohazard Cleanup in NEPA.

Cleaning up a crime scene is grisly work, but it needs to be done. It should be done by professionals no matter what. You may be wondering why that is, so we’re here to explain. There are actually several reasons why you should always call in a professional to clean scenes of murder, drug-related damages, or any other major crime. Are you ready to learn more? Well, let’s get started!

Crime Scenes carry sensitive information.

Once the police force has thoroughly investigated the crime scene, the area may be covered in residues specific to a crime scene. Tear gas residue, fingerprint gathering dust, and other police specific things may remain once the investigation is over. Cleaning them is not always as simple as a little scrub either. Cleaning up a fire extinguisher’s remains is also no picnic. These things are better left to the professionals.

Crime Scenes can be dangerous.

A crime that resulted in major injury or death can often leave behind hazardous waste that can pose a danger to you. Blood can carry many pathogens and should never be handled by anyone who doesn’t know what they are doing. Not to mention the fact that blood stains are difficult to clean. There are also special protocols for the removal of many crime scene elements including blood and harmful chemicals. We can also handle any leftover meth lab issues. These are particularly dangerous scenes, so please let us handle it. It’s for your safety.

Crime Scenes can be emotional.

Whether or not someone you know was involved in the crime scene doesn’t necessarily indicate whether or not it will have an emotional impact. These circumstances tend to be difficult for all people involved. So, when it comes time to cleaning the area, you may be better off allowing a third party to come in and take away some of your burden.

During the Spring and Summer months, allergens accumulate and fill areas of your home or office with dust, dust mites, animal dander, mold and other unhealthy elements. Unless you address the situation now, the air quality will continue to deteriorate.

Your friends at SERVPRO of Wyoming County/Kingston Township want to ensure that you and your property are properly prepared for the upcoming season. Therefore, we would like to offer you some helpful tips that will adequately prepare your property for the Summer:

  • Eliminate mold and mildew indoors by cleaning under the refrigerator, washing and disinfecting garbage cans, scrubbing bathrooms, and cleaning or changing shower curtains
  • Remove any wet debris from around the home or office, as mold spores are airborne particles that can easily float indoors
  • Schedule to have your chimney cleaned within the next month. Excessive buildup of creosote and debris, as well as miscellaneous branches, leaves and animal nests can create a dangerous situation.
  • Remember not to ignore your ductwork, vents and HVAC systems. Unnecessary dirt and debris can pose a serious threat to the health of your family or employees if they are not properly maintained.
