As winter snows stop rearing their angry heads, it might feel like you can finally take a breath, but then come the spring storms! The snow has melted, flowers are blooming, and it feels like it’s time to celebrate. However, now that the cold has passed and the heat is on its way, there are new storms to prepare for. From flooding to lightning to high winds, there is a lot to prepare for in order to make sure you stay safe during spring storm season.
The most important thing to have on hand during any storm is a source of clean water. Flooding can contaminate wells and other water systems. So it is important to always have clean bottled water on hand in case of a storm and subsequent flooding. When you hear that a storm is coming, remember to check your water supply.
Another danger of flooding is flood waters entering your home. Flood waters can carry bio-hazardous and toxic materials, so it is important to safely handle the cleanup. If you have experienced flood damage, check out our article on what to do after your home floods.
Whether from flooding, high winds, or lightning, trees can be a significant storm hazard. You can practice good tree maintenance to prevent limbs or a whole tree from coming down on your house or car. By maintaining your trees, you decrease the likelihood that one will come down in a storm. You should have dead trees removed and trim the weak limbs of healthy trees to prevent them from breaking off in a storm.
Keeping your property and drinking water safe is important, but even more important is keeping yourself safe. Lightning storms can be beautiful to watch, but you have to think about your safety. Putting yourself in harm’s way by being outside during a storm is not smart. Protect yourself from lightning, hail, and high winds carrying debris. During a severe storm, stay in an inner room or basement, and keep away from windows.
Winter is over, and spring is here. Soon enough the spring storms will be on their way out, but while they’re here, be safe, smart, and plan ahead. Make sure your home and family are as ready as they can be for a storm. However, despite preparation and planning, sometimes storm damage is unavoidable. If you have experienced storm damage, Soilaway is here to help you. For the storms you can’t prepare for, give us a call at 603-641-6555 or contact us on our website.
Hoarding is a condition that comes with many dangers for the individual and property. Potential dangers include blocked exits in case of fire, falling and tripping hazards, piles collapsing, degraded health through mold and bio-hazardous growth, and structural integrity issues. Whatever your reasons are for looking into hoarding cleanup, it’s best to take care of it sooner rather than later. Here at Soil-Away Restoration Services, we understand that hoarding is an emotional situation, so we have developed a strategic cleanup process. Here is how we deal with hoarding cleanup.
As no two hoarding cases will be the same, we assess each project to develop our plan of action. We thoroughly inspect the property to determine the severity of the situation as well as figure out the specific procedures required for the clean-up. During the inspection, we not only catalog the areas of hoarding but also set up safety measures. As hoarding can compromise the structural integrity of a property and piles can collapse, this step is vital. We want to ensure the safety of everyone involved in this process.
Remove and Clean
Once we set our detailed plan in place, we can begin the removal process. We conduct trash and furniture removal, bio-hazard and medical waste disposal, and a full line of cleaning. Removal and disposal by professionals ensures the safety of our clients. In addition, we are certified in mold remediation, air duct cleaning, and Esporta Wash System for soft content cleaning. Our certifications ensure that we can completely clean your property once the removal process has been completed.
As a company that specializes in property restoration, we are prepared to restore your property once we have removed the hoarded materials. An important part of restoration is often mold remediation. Mold growth poses health risks if not properly taken care of, so it’s very important to allow professionals to handle this step. Restoration may even include structural repairs if need be. Our goal is to restore your property to its pre-hoarded state. We have the specific equipment and professional technicians to ensure your property is completely restored.
Hoarding removal can be a distressing and emotional situation. Soil-Away can help you with the process and alleviate some of the stress. We are a professional team with the experience and equipment necessary to take care of your job. If you need help with hoarding cleanup, give us a call at 603-641-6555 or contact us on our website.
