Preparing for a fall rainy season - Fort Worth, TX

7/29/2019 (Permalink)

With temperatures soaring towards 99 degrees this week, it’s hard to imagine that just a few months ago we were practically drowning with all the rain we were getting. What I wouldn’t give to be back at that spot! I love the rainy season, and I know a lot of us are praying for a little bit of rain to help beat the heat.

But it’s good to point out that with fall coming up, the rain will be coming soon. After all, fall is our second tornado season of the year. It’s important to make sure that your house is in tip top shape, in preparation for the fall and winter months to come. Here’s a handy checklist:

  • Clean out gutters and make sure they are in working order. Broken or clogged gutters can lead to overflow or worse and cause water damage to your home.
  • Ensure that flower beds are draining properly.
  • Check door seals and window seals to make sure that no water can get in from inside.
  • Make no shingles are damaged on the roof and replace the ones that are.

If you find yourself in the middle of a water damage caused by rain, give us a call today at 817.560.3086!

Hurricane Preparation

Hurricane season has officially begun! With the first storm hitting New Orleans just a few weeks ago, it’s important that we’re storm aware until late November, when storm season finally ends. In the event of a hurricane making it far enough inland to North Texas, we need to make sure our house is well protected from winds, hail, and rain. Do a thorough inspection of your home and repair any problem areas that you may see. If vacationing on a beach in the next few months, make sure to keep an eye on the weather and make proper safety kits and have emergency plans in place in the event of a hurricane.

New Water Loss Detection Technology

7/25/2019 (Permalink)

With technology evolving every day, our houses are getting smarter. Products like Ring and Nest are common sights in homes, along with Amazon’s Alexa and even smart fridges from Samsung. With all these innovations to our more important and seen appliances, it makes sense that our smaller ones would have upgrades too.

Water is probably, singlehandedly, the most used product in our home. It can also cause the most damage outside of a fire to our homes if a leak or sudden failure of appliances should happen. We’ve written about some things to combat water damage in the past, like sensors placed around the spots in your home that could have the highest risk for a water loss such as a laundry room, heater, or bathroom. Either these sensors would let out an alarm – sort of like a smoke detector – alerting to a water loss or they would be attached to a shut off valve to help stop the flow of water and prevent making a bigger problem. These are great, and very useful but if you don’t have a sensor in a spot that could be vulnerable like under a sink or near a toilet it could still spell disastrous.

 Now, there are some cool and innovative companies that are making water detection and conservation in your home is even easier than before. For example, there is a company that installs a water shut off valve that measures the pressure and temperature of the water flowing through the pipe and can tell you even if there’s the smallest leak somewhere. How? Through a Wi-Fi connection in the device that automatically connects to an app to tell you gallon usage, if the water pressure is off, and even if it’s going to get too cold and something is going to burst.

Homes are getting smarter every day, are you prepared?

Smoke Alarm Importance

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

Remember in school, when you used to have a fire fighter come into your class or a general assembly and talk about how important fire detectors are? I sure do, I also remember the coloring books that they handed out every time they spoke. To my six-year-old mind, I thought that those were  

They’re loud, and obnoxious, and they are so important.

Did you know that in 2012-2016 the NFPA estimates that fire departments respond to an estimated average of 355,400 home fires to the tune of 6.5 billion dollars’ worth of property damage? The leading cause of fires is cooking.

And that’s why it’s important to have smoke alarms in your homes, it’s important to do routine maintenance on your alarms like testing the alarms and replacing the batteries when needed. Make sure to have them in all areas of your house. It’s wise to have them in your kitchen, all your bedrooms, your living rooms, and even laundry rooms.

Fires & Lightning

6/28/2019 (Permalink)

The rainy spring season maybe over, but we’re not out of the clear with our summer thunderstorms yet! And even though we’ve had a fairly wet spring, with lakes being over their normal levels and the soupy humidity still hanging in the air, it’s important to remember that there’s still a fire danger when it comes to the weather outside.

We aren’t dry enough yet to have wildfires, though that’s more seen on the edges of DFW, as I said above, we aren’t out of the clear for thunderstorms in the summer yet – and we’ve still got fall coming up too! You may find yourself wondering just what I’m talking about… I’m talking about lightning.

Your home could be struck by lightning! Did you know that Texas leads the nation in lightning strikes? It’s true! According to a company named Vaisala that measures lightning, Texas had 3.3 million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes alone in 2017! With those numbers, just think about how many houses are struck by lightning each year!

So, what do you do if your home is struck by lightning? Call the fire department first off. Make sure they do a full inspection of your home. Fires started by lightning can often lurk in your walls and spread quickly, causing a bigger fire. Follow your emergency plan as well to make sure your family is safe in the event of a fire.

If you’re looking for way to prevent your home from getting struck by lightning, look for a company that can install a lightning protection system on the roof of your home. The company will come out and install about ten-inch long copper rods on the roof of your home that will be connected to copper wires that run to the ground. They’ll help disperse the lightning away from your home and into the ground and preventing fires from starting. It’s also really smart to have your electronics hooked up to surge protectors.

If your home has been struck by lightning and caused a fire, give us a call today at 817.560.3086!
