Did you know that we are an IICRC Certified Firm? Let's talk about what that means.

The IICRC is the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, a non-profit organization for the cleaning and restoration industry. For a brief overview, it consists of standards, certifications, and certified firms. As described on their website, their purpose and mission is;

"The mission of the IICRC is to establish and advance globally recognized standards and certifications for the inspection, cleaning, restoration and installation industries."

As a consumer, IICRC allows you to have peace of mind when knowing who to trust in the restoration industry. We have to follow the industry guidelines and perform the scope of work that we have learned in our IICRC classes & continuing education. With the help of DryBook paired with the standards that IICRC puts out, DryBook tells us how much equipment we can set in a home. This depends on the size and how much material has been affected. Pretty cool, right?!

Emergency Car Kit: Winter Weather Edition

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

We may not usually get harsh winter weather here in Alabama, but that doesn't mean we won't share how YOU can be prepared as you travel during the winter months.

In today's blog, we wanted to encourage you all to create a winter weather emergency kit for your car. We're sharing tips from our friends over at Ready.gov. So, what should you include in your emergency car kit during the colder months? 

  • Include jumper cables, sand (or kitty litter), a flashlight, warm clothes, blankets, bottled water and non-perishable snacks. You should also consider keeping reflective triangles or flares. Make sure you have an ice scraper! You'll also want to consider having a car charger for your cell phone and a paper map of the area (should that phone die or you find yourself in an area without cell service). 
    • Remember that not everyone can afford to respond by stocking up on necessities. For those who can afford it, making essential purchases and slowly building up supplies in advance will allow for longer time periods between shopping trips. This helps to protect those who are unable to procure essentials in advance of the pandemic and must shop more frequently. In addition, consider avoiding WIC-labeled products so that those who rely on these products can access them.
    • Being prepared allows you to avoid unnecessary excursions and to address minor medical issues at home, alleviating the burden on urgent care centers and hospitals.
    • You might be asking yourself, "Why sand or kitty litter?" This is to ensure that you have a way to get better tire traction should you find yourself stranded in icy conditions.

Watch versus Warning?: Freeze Edition

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

We don't deal with freeze watches or freeze warnings in Alabama very often, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be familiar with the terms to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe when the temperature does drop. In today's blog, we wanted to cover the difference between a Freeze Watch versus a Freeze Warning. As a bonus, we'll also be covering what a frost advisory is. A huge thanks goes to the National Weather Service for providing such easy to understand explanations for us to share with our customers. So, what's the difference? 

  • Hard Freeze Warning: Take Action! NWS issues a hard freeze warning when temperatures are expected to drop below 28°F for an extended period of time, killing most types of commercial crops and residential plants.
  • Freeze Warning: Take Action! When temperatures are forecasted to go below 32°F for a long period of time, NWS issues a freeze warning. This temperature threshold kills some types of commercial crops and residential plants.
  • Freeze Watch: Be Prepared: NWS issues a freeze watch when there is a potential for significant, widespread freezing temperatures within the next 24-36 hours. A freeze watch is issued in the autumn until the end of the growing season and in the spring at the start of the growing season.
  • Frost Advisory: Be Aware: A frost advisory means areas of frost are expected or occurring, posing a threat to sensitive vegetation.

NPM Week 3: Prepare for Disasters

9/15/2020 (Permalink)

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) and we're sharing resources from our friends at Ready.gov all month long. 

It is Week #3! The topic for this week to prepare for disasters. 

This week's advice will depend on where you live. The most important piece of advice this week is to sign up for emergency alerts. You'll want to make sure that you will be notified when a disaster is going to impact your local community. Click here to check out multiple ways you can receive Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs).

We're also including four different disasters you can prepare for depending on your area. Let's get started.

  • If you live in an area that is prone to earthquakes, consider making improvements to your building to fix structural issues that could cause your building to collapse during an earthquake.
  • If you live in an area prone to wildfires, create a defensive space around your home by clearing debris or articles that could easily fuel the flames.
  • If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, install shutters for all your windows.
  • If your area is prone to flooding, keep important documents in a waterproof container. Also, protect your property by purchasing flood insurance.
