SERVPRO of Upland and San Antonio is here to help you and your kids with a little article we put together, on how to prepare your kids incase of a Storm Emergency or a Disaster.

School’s right around the corner and for some of us, that means life is [once again] starting to ramp up. Next month happens to be Emergency Preparedness Month and we will be coming out with some great content to help our readers stay ahead of the game to be prepared for the unexpected. In the meantime though, our friends over at FEMA  just came out with a great article on helping both kids and parents stay prepared as well. We thought you’d enjoy it, so feel free to keep reading –   

“Fun Preparedness Resources for Kids

Your child may be away from you when disaster strikes, so it’s important teach to him or her how to stay safe during emergencies. To make disaster preparedness fun for youth, Save the Children and Scholastic created the following resources for parents and teachers to share with kids.

Keep the Herd Safe is a fun-filled activities page for children in grades 1-3 to encourage disaster planning and to teach them how to stay connected in the event of an emergency! Parents and teachers can also help children complete In Case of Emergency (ICE) Cards featuring characters from the new animated film “Ice Age: Collision Course.”

Get Ready, Get Safe! Do your children know how to do the Prep Step? Save the Children’s Prep Step video combines valuable safety tips with fun dance moves to get kids excited about preparedness. You can also download the Prep Step song for children to listen to while on the go. Download today and get moving!

Making preparedness fun and easy for kids is one of the best ways to get them involved in their own safety. 

 Firewise Virtual Workshop Series

The National Fire Protection Association’s Firewise Communities program is hosting a wildfire workshop series to connect wildfire stakeholders with subject matter experts. The series provides free learning opportunities for wildfire stakeholders by connecting them with leading researchers and practitioners in a live, interactive format. Visit the Firewise Communities website to learn more about the series and to register for their upcoming workshops.

Avoiding Disaster Fraud

After a disaster, community-based organizations and agencies often band together to try to meet the needs of affected individuals and communities. Unfortunately, this often brings criminals who prey on the needs of disaster survivors by offering fraudulent services.

Learn how to protect yourself and your finances from additional loss. FEMA offers reminders to help you avoid disaster fraud, including:

  • There is never a fee to apply for FEMA disaster assistance or to receive it;
  • Get three written estimates for repair work. Then check credentials and contact your local Better Business Bureau or Chamber of Commerce to learn about any complaints against the contractor or business;
  • Before work begins, make sure you get a written contract detailing all the work to be performed, the costs, a projected completion date, and how to negotiate changes and settle disputes; and
  • Pay only by check or a credit card. A reasonable down payment may be required to buy materials for some projects, but don't pay anything without a signed contract.  

Be sure to check out the full list of disaster fraud tips and stay vigilant when disaster strikes! To register for FEMA disaster assistance, call 800-621-3362(TTY: 800-462-7585) or visit www.DisasterAssistance.gov.”

Water Damage to Fabrics

8/9/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Damage to Fabrics Water Damaged Sofa? Let Us Help You.

SERVPRO Can Salvage Fabrics from Water Damage

Some of the most at-risk objects and materials in a home come in the form of fabrics. Fabric and textiles make up our furniture, our flooring, drapes, our belongings, and sometimes even our walls and appliances, and all of these are highly susceptible to water damage. Thankfully, most types of water damage to fabrics are restorable and treatable in the hands of trained professionals. Depending on the type of fabric and its use, we vary our approach considerably when taking on a job for water damage restoration to fabrics.
 
Issues in General
Common throughout most types of fabric taking on water damage in California are a few constant problems. For homeowners, the most troubling are often staining and discoloration, which can permanently ruin the appearance of some types of fabric if not treated correctly. Depending on the kind of water damage and fabric, our technicians may be able to remove this staining without replacing anything. 
 
Carpeting
When it absorbs water, carpeting and padding can become heavily warped and misshapen. If not treated quickly, this may lead to a complete replacing of the material. Furthermore, carpeting is often harmed through flooding, which means that the general fabric damages are often most dangerous and prominent here. However, if only a portion of the carpet is too far gone, it can typically be removed and replaced if a successful drying out of the remaining carpet and pad has been accomplished.
 
Drapes and Window Coverings
Drapes and window treatments can also sustain water damage through flooding, but are also a common casualty after storm damage. If the damage is significant, it can be difficult to fully restore large and heavy drapes, although damage is often light enough to allow for full restoration.
 
Furniture
Fabric furniture pieces can sustain all of the usual problems, but are also highly susceptible to color bleed. Following a flood or significant water wicking into a piece of furniture, we recommend removing all pillows, sheets, and cushions from the furniture, if possible. This may help to mitigate damage to the non-fabric portions of the furniture.
 
Clothing
Most articles of clothing can survive light to moderate water damage with a thorough dry cleaning. For heavier damage or flooding, however, it is typically best to replace most items, as they may present a hazard or be too costly to restore. 
 
SERVPRO of Upland and San Antonio Heights is an experienced and well-staffed home restoration and cleanup service provider which has helped dozens of local home and business owners to get past even the worst catastrophes. For our services or a quote, call us 24/7 at 909-949-4450.

Let Us Handle The Eye Of The Storm Carpet Cleaning

Storm Damage Let Us Handle The Eye Of The Storm Carpet Cleaning Regular Carpet Cleaning Can Extend the Life of Your Carpet

SERVPRO Can Get the Deep Dirt Out of Your Carpet

Carpet cleaning is like the unexpected storm that damages your home or business. It is suggested by carpeting manufacturers that carpets should be professionally cleaned every 12 months. During the interim, carpets should be cared for with regular maintenance solutions. These steps involve using walk-off mats to lessen the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet; regular vacuuming; removing spots, pilating (or grooming) the carpet to prevent matting and moving furniture to change traffic patterns. As beautiful and aesthetic as carpeting is, it is a natural dirt and soil filter trap. It traps and holds dust, crumbs, dirt, gasses, pet hair, and other soil contaminants.
 
Our  carpet cleaning service is designed to keep your indoor air a healthy breathing environment. When you look at your carpeting, you may only see the dirt trapped on the top fibers. The truth is that more dirt, bacteria, and germs are hiding below the surface. The hidden contaminants are causing damage to the life of your carpeting. We offer specialized cleaning methods based on your carpeting material. We provide a premier cleaning system, which also involves bonnet cleaning, hot water extraction, deluxe preconditioning and rinse, as well as a quality dry cleaning.

Let us take the drudgery of carpet cleaning out of your hands. Place this necessary chore into the hands of your local professionals. We offer regular carpet cleaning services that will keep your carpet looking new. Protect your flooring investment by having SERVPRO clean and maintain your carpets. We use safe state-of-the-art equipment and solutions. Our certified and experienced technicians will get the job done right the first time and every time.
