fire safety tips We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Palm Springs and Riverside County

Fire prevention and safety should always be a top priority for homeowners in Palm Springs. A house fire can occur at any time, and it can cause significant damage to your property and harm to your loved ones. While no one wants to experience a fire, it is essential to be prepared and take steps to prevent fires from occurring.

One of the easiest ways to prevent fires is to ensure that your fire alarms are functioning correctly. You should check your fire alarms regularly to ensure that they are in working order. It's recommended that you test your smoke alarms every month to ensure that they are working correctly. Don't forget to replace the batteries annually to keep them working correctly.

Another essential step to prevent fires in Palm Springs is to be cautious with the use of open flames, such as candles, fireplaces, and outdoor fire pits. Make sure to keep flammable items away from open flames, and never leave them unattended. If you use space heaters, make sure to keep them away from flammable materials and turn them off when you leave the room or go to bed.

In the event of a fire, it's crucial to have a plan in place in Palm Springs. Make sure that everyone in your home knows how to evacuate quickly and safely. Have a designated meeting place outside of the home, and make sure that everyone knows where it is.

Even with the best prevention and safety measures in place, accidents can still happen. That's why it's important to have access to 24/7 emergency fire damage restoration services in Palm Springs.

Water leaking from ceiling We respond to water damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Palm Springs.

Have you checked your air conditioner unit for signs of water intrusion? This is an often overlooked area where rain can enter a home and cause damage. Our local team in Palm Springs is on call to respond to water damage emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Palm Springs. Here are some helpful tips from the Institute of Business and Home Safety for protecting your home from heavy rain:

Check wall air conditioners

Internal Drain

If the air conditioning unit has an internal drain, make sure the pipe size is adequate and water is running and flowing freely in order to handle a high volume of water.

Caulking of Air Conditioning Unit Sleeve: Look for any gaps, cracks, or other damage that indicates improper caulking around the edge of the sleeve to the exterior of the building. This increases vulnerability to water entry.

Orientation: Tilting the air conditioning unit sleeves slightly (two degrees) towards the exterior wall can significantly reduce the water’s entry.

Weather Stripping: Proper weather stripping between the air conditioning unit and the sleeve can reduce the water from entering.

The First 48 Hours After A Fire Damage

2/20/2020 (Permalink)

The first 48 hours after a fire damage can make the difference between restoring versus replacing your property and personal belongings. SERVPRO of Palm Springs can help prevent fire damage from creating long-term problems. With extreme desert heat in summer, fire damages can happen suddenly and keeping a fire damage emergency kit in a place outside of home with essentials that may be needed is something we should all do. 

What You Can Do Until Help Arrives:

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from spreading and additional damage from occurring.
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs and high traffic areas and upholstery.
  • Coat chrome faucets, trim and appliances with petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet.
  • Do not wash any walls or painted surfaces.
  • Do not shampoo carpet or upholstery.
  • Do not clean any electrical equipment.
  • Do not sent clothing to a dry cleaner since improper cleaning may set smoke odor.

For any further questions on what to do after a fire damage please contact our SERVPRO of Palm Springs Office at (760)327-7700. Our office staff will gladly answer any questions you may have.

DVBA Christmas Party

Hilton Ballroom for xmas party

For SERVPRO of Palm Springs we love the holidays, it allows us to engage more with our clients on a personal level. A majority of our interactions can be in response to emergency restoration situations, but during the holidays we can actually get together for the more positive reasons.

In this shot we are attending the Desert Valley Builders association annual Christmas party at the Hilton in Palm Springs. The evening’s festivities where capped off by a rousing recital by Dueling pianos, they are as the name implies, Dueling pianos that really get the crowd involved with tons of call and repeat and blasting out the oldies.

We always find that these events can be key to a successful partnership in the coming year, they really increase the personal connection...and they are really fun.

Happy Holidays

Flooded Tennis Court

Dirt, Clay or... Water Court play?

At SERVPRO of Palm Springs not every water damage loss we encounter is inside. Some of the situations we encounter are areas affected by sprinkler systems, outdoor spigots or broken water mains. While these damages do not affect a structure they still have to be dried out quickly. If the water is not removed it can affect he longevity of the affected areas, if concrete is over saturated the water can become bound at a molecular level. When this occurs the area can undergo spalling in the rebar. Spalling is when the rebar starts to rust and then degrades to the point where it can no longer support the surrounding concrete and it starts to crack and is no longer reliable.

In this picture we see a tennis court that has been flooded by a sprinkler valve that has failed. This will takes push brooms and a sump pump with some hosing and a drainage point to resolve.
