Fire and smoke damage qualify as emergencies, so don’t hesitate to call us any time of any day.
We promise to be Faster to any size disaster because:
- Speed matters
- No job is too small.
- No job is too large.
Smoke is corrosive, and many kinds of smoke get larger and more corrosive over time. The sooner we arrive, the easier it is for us to help prevent damage.
Because firefighters and others may use water to help extinguish fires, there is also the danger of water damage. Water damage not only gets worse on its own, but its frequent companion, microbial growth, also becomes more menacing over time.
At SERVPRO of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, we hope we can help prevent damage in addition to cleaning up the existing damage.
The Risk of Structural Fires During Winter Months
Lakeside living doesn’t negate the fact that cold air is dry air, and dry air increases the risk of electrical fires, especially in older homes with over-burdened wiring and wood flooring.
We should be cautious and try to prevent fires all year long, but some of the following precautions are clearly particular to winter.
Reduce the risk of structural fires:
- Plug space heaters into wall outlets ONLY
- Use space heaters for 2 to 3 hours at a time, not all day
- Do not overload extension cords or power strips
- Keep flammable materials away from heaters, candles, fireplaces, stoves, other heat sources
- Do not leave the kitchen when boiling or frying food
- Check the kitchen when baking or broiling food
- Keep fire-extinguishers handy, and know how to use them, but not as a substitute for calling the firefighters
Here’s an odd one. Our Department of Nearly Always Useless Information couldn’t find out why “New Baltimore” became “New Baltimore” (aside from the settlers not liking “Ashleyville” after the founder, Sir Alfred Ashley). Founding out when was easy (1855), but specifically why New Baltimore instead of Detroit Lions or Michigan Wolverines, we don’t know.
They have come up with guesses; we think they consulted a Ouija board, or a bunch of third-grade children deprived of screen time. Choose your favorite reason for “New Baltimore”, and we’ll see if the State of Michigan will accept it:
- “Old Baltimore” sounded dumb.
- “Baltimore” was taken.
- No one liked “Alfred.”
- We weren’t allowed to use “Maryland.”
- It was supposed to confuse everyone in Ohio.
