  • Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home.
  • Test smoke alarms at least once a month

Deadly Storm in Beckley?

12/20/2021 (Permalink)

Snow drifts cover cars on the street. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

SERVPRO® of Beckley responds to storm damage emergencies often during the winter months. The winter season in Beckley is short but averages 52 inches of snow a year. In 1978 a massive blizzard hit West Virginia. This storm is considered to be the biggest blizzard to ever happen in West Virginia in recorded history.

The Great Blizzard of ‘78” shut down the state for days. The blizzard was caused by a low-pressure system that developed near the Florida panhandle. On January 20, the system reached West Virginia. The National Weather Service believed the snow would mix with sleet and rain, but the temperature never exceeded freezing temperatures, and the snow kept falling. That day 24 inches of snow was recorded in Charleston.

The blizzard caused roofs to collapse and stranded people, and many roads, schools, and businesses were closed for days. On January 26, a big rainstorm caused the snow to melt, and many areas flooded. Although there was flooding, snow remained on the ground for sixty days – the longest period of continuous snow coverage in West Virginia.

Electrical Fire in Glen Daniel?

12/14/2021 (Permalink)

Christmas lights frame the windows of a home. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Raleigh County!

SERVPRO® of Beckley responds to fire damage emergencies often during the winter months. Here are some electrical safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association to keep Glen Daniel residents safe from electrical fires:

  • Have all electrical work done by a qualified electrician
  • Only use one heat-producing appliance plugged into a receptacle outlet at a time
  • Devices and appliances should be plugged directly into a wall receptacle outlet. Do not use extension cords and plug strips.
  • Arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) shut off electricity when a dangerous condition occurs. Consider having them installed in your home.
  • Use ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) to reduce the risk of shock. GFCIs shut off an electrical circuit when it becomes a shock hazard. They should be installed inside the home in bathrooms, kitchens, garages, and basements. All outdoor receptacles should be GFCI protected.
  • Test AFCIs and GFCIs once a month according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Check electrical cords to make sure they are not running across doorways or under carpets. Extension cords are intended for temporary use. Have a qualified electrician add more receptacle outlets, so you don’t have to use extension cords.

A person is using a hygrometer. We are trusted water damage restoration specialists in Raleigh County!

SERVPRO® of Beckley invests heavily in state-of-the-art water detection, extraction, and drying equipment. The equipment we use saves our customers time and money as we can quickly identify the source of the water damage and extract and dry the damaged areas more efficiently.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment

Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure and monitor a property’s moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation

Water Extraction Equipment

Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal

Drying Equipment

Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from the ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air
