Is Your Business Ready for Winter in Shady Spring?

11/21/2022 (Permalink)

Frozen water pipes can be seen outside a commercial property. We restore commercial property damage 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Our local team in Beckley responds to commercial water damage emergencies in Shady Spring 24-hours a day. During the winter, freezing temperatures can cause pipes to freeze. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety for preventing pipes from freezing:

  • Inspect and seal or repair all cracks, holes, leaks, windows, doors, and other openings on exterior walls with caulk or insulation to prevent cold air from penetrating the wall cavity 
  • Insulate and seal around attic penetrations such as partition walls, vents, plumbing stacks, and electric and mechanical chases 
  • Ensure your pipes in hard-to-reach places like attics, crawl spaces, and outside walls are insulated—wrap pipes and faucets in unheated or minimally heated areas of the building 
  • Make sure your existing freeze-protection devices and alarms are in good working order. Test freeze stats (low-temperature sensing device) and valves before the weather gets cold. 
  • Pipes leading to the exterior should be shut off and drained at the start of winter. If these exterior faucets do not have a shut-off valve inside the building, have one installed by a plumber.  
  • Hire a licensed fire protection specialist to conduct routine maintenance on your sprinkler system. Discuss the system's exposure to winter weather and potential mitigation options.

11/1/2022 (Permalink)

A person uses a portable fire extinguisher to put out an oven fire. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Raleigh County.

Our local team in Beckley has been restoring fire damage in Raleigh County since 1999! Portable fire extinguishers can save lives and minimize fire damage when used correctly. Here are some tips for selecting a fire extinguisher for home use from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • For the home, choose a multi-purpose extinguisher (that can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the fire extinguisher instructions and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out. Local fire departments or fire equipment distributors often offer hands-on fire extinguisher training.
  • Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device so you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled. If the room fills with smoke, leave immediately.
  • Know when to go. Fire extinguishers are one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. Every household should have ahome fire escape plan and working smoke alarms.

Our local team in Beckley wants everyone to have a safe and fire-damage-free Halloween celebration this year. Here are some Halloween safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.
  • When using electrical lighting to decorate your home, ensure it is used per the manufacturer's instructions. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
  • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. Make sure all smoke alarms are working.

For families still planning to attend Halloween parties or go trick-or-treating:

  • When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing fabric that could come in contact with open flames or other heat sources
  • Teach children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costumes
