Temperatures are warming up quickly around the SERVPRO of Hayward area.  This weekend will feel like spring and that means many of us will be bringing out our grills.  Although we may be experienced grillers accidents can happen.  Make sure your grill is in tip-top shape and have a good time, here are a couple of small tips also:

  • Grill outside and away from any structures. 
  • Make sure your grill is stable.
  • Keep your grill clean. 
  • Check for propane leaks on your gas grill. 
  • If the flame goes out, wait to re-light. 
  • Take care around the grill.
  •  Be careful with charcoal starter fluid. 
  • Wear the right clothing.

Open flame is always a dangerous thing, make sure to keep kids away also.  

SERVPRO of Hayward wants you to have a safe spring grilling season.

Spring storms are you ready?

4/3/2019 (Permalink)

I woke from a dream this early morning, and I was in a nightmare of a tornado.  This tornado had chased me down and suddenly I woke up to find it was just a dream.  In my dream, my family wasn't prepared and there was no warning.

A lot of time we do have great storm warnings and precautions but we always think they aren't common occurrences so why be so prepared.  Here are a few things to think about.

Have you and your family thought of a safety plan and tried it out?  This is first and foremost safety.  But further down the road, what if your home or business sustains storm damage, do you have a plan?  With your home, having local emergency numbers on hand is a must.  In your business you should have this as well, but do you know where your emergency shutoffs are located and/or a plan for your business when it sustains storm damage.  

At SERVPRO of Hayward we can help you out at both home and your business. We offer emergency board up services 24/7 by calling 715-634-0699.  For businesses we offer free of charge Emergency Ready Profile where we will come and walk you through your business and set up a plan in case of an emergency for you.  This will help you save time and money in your place of business.

If you find any of these services would benefit you please give us a call at 715-634-0699.
