Fall is here which means we want to remind you of basic fire damage safety rules. With Autumn comes warmer weather, Fall activities, savory comfort recipes and fire places, but with this comes potential threats for fire damage. We get fire damage calls all the time, and we understand the stress and uncertainty that comes along with losing your belongings.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Make sure there is space between your space heater and other furniture
  • Monitor your air-ducts and HVAC systems and call SERVPRO of The Attleboros 508-223-0505 if you need professional cleaning 
  • Hire a team to clean out your chimney at least once a year
  • Do not leave a fire unattended 
  • When there is a fire, do NOT attempt to clean up, since it can cause the smoke to "set" in the area
  • Turn all appliances off when you leave your home or office
  • Use flashlights inside of Jack-O-Lanterns instead of candles to prevent possible fire
  • Do not use gasoline to start a fire

EEE: What You Need to Know

Triple E, known as Eastern Equine Encephalitis,  is a rare disease carried by mosquitoes and has made headlines recently due to another person contracting the disease and dying. Boston.com reported a person in Connecticut died. 

The positive news is that it is getting colder so mosquitoes should not be as much of a problem. Specialists say to stay indoors. There have been 8 total deaths nationwide from EEE.

Symptoms of EEE

This illness causes swelling of the brain with flu-like symptoms. Information is retrieved from the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/easternequineencephalitis/tech/symptoms.html

  • irritability/ restlessness
  • chills/fever
  • vomiting
  • coma 
  • headache 
  • diarrhea 

About 1/3 of people who contract the disease die from it, so it's CRUCIAL to always where mosquito repellent and to stay indoors when its' dark out. If you have EEE, it's important to report it so officials can test mosquitoes in that area for the virus and spraying may begin.

Commercial Puff Back - Seekonk, MA

rubber duck and logo Keep your ducks in a row, with SERVPRO (of The Attleboros)

SERVPRO of The Attleboros mitigates fire, water, smoke, soot, and mold damage for your commercial property, like your apartment, restaurant, hospital, and school.

A puff back is when a boiler chamber or furnace explodes. Most puff backs occur in an oil-fired system, but some occur with gas systems which can be way more severe. A puff back can be caused by a break in the nozzle or some systematic error in the boiler chamber. Businesses need substantial hours of operation in order to drive business. We understand that, which is why we're dedicated to serving commercial property owners. If you are experiencing a puff back in your home or business, leave the affected area, since it's likely you'll breathe in smoke and soot if you stay. Seek safety in an unaffected area and call the professionals at SERVPRO.

Don't try to clean up soot and smoke damage after a puff back. You may feel the need to, which is understandable, but leave it to the restoration professionals. They have the technology and certification to clean your puff back damage right. 

Most puff backs are covered by insurance, but it is recommended you check with your insurance provider and adjuster for the actual cost of mitigation.
