Summer Fire Safety Tips | SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties

6/16/2023 (Permalink)

It’s sweet summertime! We are ready to break out the shorts, the sunscreen and our backyard grills for some fun in the sun and a few BBQ nights with family and friends.

But while the summer season is one for everyone to enjoy, it does come with its own set of risks when it comes to fire.

It is important to stay safe while enjoying your backyard activities so you can avoid any sort of fire accident that could lead to a devastating house or property fire. Read on as our SERVPRO team explains some easy ways to stay safe around fire this summer.

Using Your Equipment Safely

If you haven’t started up your grill for the season yet, now is the time to check it thoroughly for wear and tear or obvious issues. If you have a gas grill, check your propane tanks for leaks and kinks, and be sure your connections are set up safely. In addition, your propane tank should not have any dents in it or leaks either.

Charcoal grills have their own set of rules. Give your grill a good cleaning to remove ash and soot buildup, and set up your grill at least 10 feet away from your house or garage overhang. Smoke and wandering sparks can be a huge fire risk for your house.

Similarly, check your lawn mowers or other outdoor equipment for the same issues like dented tanks, leaks or cracks. Any sort of gas leak could lead to disastrous consequences.

Bonfire Safety

Who doesn’t love a good bonfire on a warm summer’s night? If you have a permanent bonfire pit in your backyard, keep it clean and ensure that grass or dead vegetation is far away from the ring.

Keep your flame under control, and never store your wood pile close by. All it takes is a single windy evening to start your whole pile ablaze.

Portable pits are becoming more popular these days, so if that’s how you enjoy a fire, set it up on a nonflammable surface and never put it in your garage once it is lit. Choose a level surface and don’t let the flames get too high. Once you are done with your fire for the night, ensure that the flame has been completely extinguished and your ashes are cold before heading inside.

Removing Debris Around the House

A hot and dry summer can create wildfire conditions that could affect your home without much warning. Even though you can’t control a wildfire, you can reduce the amount of fuel in your yard. Clean up dried leaves, vegetation and fallen branches, and dispose of them off of your property.

Preventing a house fire is always preferred, but accidents can happen at any time. Thankfully, SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties is here to help with your restoration process! Call us day or night for fire damage assistance from your favorite local restoration team.

House fires can cause widespread damage. Our team can help with your recovery, so call SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties.

Atlantic Hurricane Season 2022 Update

9/2/2022 (Permalink)

National Hurricane Center hurricane tracking image showing 3 storm systems that are being tracked in the Atlantic Ocean. SERVPRO Team Luzzi is available to help when storm damage occurs. Call us 24/7

The Atlantic storm season of 2022 has been unpredictably quiet. For the first time since 1997 there were no named storms in August and until this point there have only been 4 named storms. Tropical Storm Danielle was recently named on September 1st and is only the fourth tropical depression to form in the Atlantic in 2022. Danielle will remain at sea and is not a threat to land. Meteorologist are currently tracking two other storm systems but conditions in the Atlantic Ocean are still not perfect for creating tropical depressions. Although the warm waters of the Atlantic are ripe for fueling hurricane activity the air is dry and dusty which lessens the chances of tropical storm formation. Despite these conditions it is more likely than not that disturbance number one in the image shown will become the fifth named storm of the season, Earl. It is still far too early to tell the path this storm system will take, it is moving slowing west to northwest and it looks like it will pass north of the Caribbean islands. If the storm continues on its current trajectory there is a chance parts of the east coast could be affected so we will be keeping an eye on this storm so we are prepared for whatever it might bring.

It is a well known fact that tropical storm systems of the last 3 decades have been wetter and have brought more water damage than storms of the past. There are many reasons for this devastation but most scientist point to man-made climate change as the biggest catalyst for the increased rainfall and storm surge witnessed in almost all of the major storms of the 21st century.

As water damage restoration experts we will be prepared for intense weather any time of year. We are available for preliminary assessment of your property before a storm strikes and can even provide preventative measures to stop damage before it happens.

Flood & Water Damage Restoration Newport & Bristol RI

Satellite image & path of Tropical Storm Alex passing over the Atlantic Ocean.. SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol County is prepared in the event of a major storm this hurricane season. Call us 24/7 when water damages your property.

After making landfall and soaking the southern counties of Florida, the first named storm in the 2022 Hurricane Season formed. It drenched southern Florida with record-breaking rains. As Tropical Storm Alex moves out into the Atlantic, it is no longer a threat to further damage on land. The National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration revised their forecast for hurricane activity for this season to include more active storms than they had previously predicted. According to the Colorado State University scientist, there will be 20 named hurricanes, 10 hurricanes and 5 hurricanes that reach category 3 strength.

SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties can help in case of a major hurricane in New England, or elsewhere in the United States. We know how many people and how much equipment is needed to restore property after a hurricane. When called upon to manage a restoration team, we have years of experience which can be extremely valuable when attempting to restore property on a large scale.

Property owners should make flooding repairs and damage their top priority during major hurricanes and rain events. While many are concerned about the impact of winds and downed trees on their homes, flooding can cause much more damage and be even more destructive to a house or commercial property during a tropical storm or hurricane. Recent years have seen the greatest property damage after large hurricanes made landfall. Although they were weaker, large amounts of rain continued to fall. Each year, flash flooding events cause millions of dollars in property damage.

We hope none of the major hurricanes that are predicted for this hurricane season make landfall, but in the event they do... we will be ready to assist 24/7/365.
