How to Protect Your Property From High Winds

3/18/2019 (Permalink)

This Dollar General sign was in a disarray after being damaged by strong winds early Wednesday morning in Rhome, TX.   The manager of the store arrived shortly after severe storms rolled through the area Wednesday to secure the back door.   As you can see in the picture the sign was hanging while the rest of the sign blew into a tree across the street.   

One of the biggest dangers from thunderstorms is flying debris caused by high winds that can damage buildings and endanger people. Take a look around your home or business and make these improvements to reduce your risk:

  • Trim trees and shrubbery away from buildings and remove any weakened sections of trees that might easily break off and fall onto buildings.
  • Contact your local utility company to trim away any limbs close to utility lines that could potentially pull down lines or even entire poles. When trimming trees it is important never to touch any wires. Trimming should usually be done by a contractor or the local utility company.
  • Promptly remove any debris in your yard or surrounding your business, such as tree trimmings, to reduce the risks of flying debris during high winds. Avoid placing yard debris in an area where it could end up in the street or near drains, which could become clogged during a thunderstorm’s heavy downpour.
  • Secure any parts of fencing that appear weakened or loose. High winds can easily dislodge boards and pieces from a fence, creating flying debris.
  • When thunderstorms are forecast, remove loose objects outside, such as lawn furniture, signs, garbage cans and potted plants.

Winter Storm Preparedness-Frozen Pipes

12/14/2018 (Permalink)

Its that time of the year when freezing temperatures come when you least expect them, especially in Texas.  Frozen pipes are a common occurrence during the winter months.  Water has a unique property in that it expands as it freezes.  This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes.  No matter the strength of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break.  If you have busted or broken pipes, call SERVPRO of Northwest Fort Worth immediately.

The holidays often come with a spike in house fires due to increased cooking.  Have you ever been running late, out the front door, and forgotten to turn off the electrical appliance, such as a stove, oven, or a space heater?  Creating electrical hazards in your home is all too easy.  You can do it unintentionally as you go about the business of a typically hectic day.

Here are some tips to eliminate potentially dangerous situations:

  • Maintain electrical appliances properly-repair or replace faulty appliances & replace broken or frayed cords
