Thunderstorm Tips

Storm Damage Thunderstorm Tips Storm Readiness in Indianapolis South

During the spring and summer months, thunderstorms that produce lightning, thunder, heavy rain, flooding, strong winds, tornadoes, and hail can occur. These storms are extremely dangerous and can appear suddenly with little warning and may only last a few minutes but have the strength and power to cause a great amount of damage.

Before A Thunderstorm

  • Check weather forecasts daily, purchase an all-hazard weather radio and have multiple ways to receive weather alerts.
  • Plan outdoor events near a secure shelter where people can go in the event of a storm.
  • Keep trees trimmed to prevent limbs from falling onto buildings, cars or people.
  • If hail or strong winds are expected, park vehicles under a shelter to avoid damage.
  • Make sure preparedness kits are portable for easy transport if evacuation is necessary. Preparedness kits should be tailored to household needs.
  • Bring pets indoors before a storm moves into the area. Sheds, dog houses, and garages do not provide ample protection from lightning, hail, high winds, and tornadoes.

How Smart is Your Indianapolis, IN home?

Property owners need to protect their assets from water damage.  Whether it’s a leaking faucet, frozen pipe or a broken main line, any water-related damage can happen anywhere at any time.  SERVPRO of Indianapolis South is just a phone call away, 24/7 for all your emergency needs.

Over 60% of all property claims are actually water related.  If you have had the misfortune of experiencing a water claim in the past, you know the time to be proactive is now.  There are three reasons why you need to invest in water loss prevention products and hopefully, you’ll make these a priority.

  1. You have made an investment in property, now don’t underestimate the expense and frequency of a water-related claim. Invest in a Smart Home detection device for the detection of water leaks.  Don’t leave yourself open to risking an unexpected water loss.
  2. Avoid expensive claim losses. No matter how minimal the loss may seem, it’s smart to have the safety net of a Smart Home detection device.
  3. A Smart Home detection device alerts you at and away from home. These devices should bring peace of mind to you as you sleep or are on vacation away from home

As a smart investor, when you have Smart Home detection devices to detect water leaks, you minimize your risk of having a water loss.

Firework Safety Tips for Indianapolis South

Fire Damage Firework Safety Tips for Indianapolis South Happy Fourth of JULY!!!

With the Fourth of July approaching quickly, SERVPRO of Indianapolis would like to provide safety tips for you and your family.

The start of summer is the perfect time to gather with family and friends for good food and fun times. Just remember

· Kids should never play with fireworks. Things like firecrackers, rockets, and sparklers are just too dangerous. If you give kids sparklers, make sure they keep them outside and away from the face, clothing, and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800°F (982°C) — hot enough to melt gold.
· Never try to make your own fireworks.
· Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water and a hose nearby in case of accidents.
· Steer clear of others setting off fireworks. They can backfire or shoot off in the wrong direction.
· Never throw or point fireworks at someone, even as a joke.
· Don't hold fireworks in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting. Wear eye protection, and don't carry fireworks in your pocket — the friction could set them off.
· Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush and leaves and flammable substances. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that local fire departments respond to more 50,000 fires caused by fireworks each year.
· Light one firework at a time (not in glass or metal containers), and never relight a dud.
· Don't allow kids to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event. Some may still be ignited and can explode at any time.
· Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash can.
· Think about your pet. Animals have sensitive ears and can be very frightened or stressed by the Fourth of July and other big celebrations. Keep pets indoors to reduce the risk that they'll run loose or get injured.
