Storm damage

Windstorms can cause damage to your home.  The storms can last for a few minutes or they may last for a few hours and even several days when they come from large weather systems.  Wind speeds during a windstorm typically exceed 35 miles per hour. When cold fronts pass over mountains, cold air accelerates even more as it moves downslope.  Blizzards can occur when the windstorms pass over snow covered ground. 

The causes of longer periods of windstorms are large differences in atmospheric pressure across a region and the jet stream winds overhead.  Windstorms can also create dust storms and sandstorms in dry areas. Tornadoes and cyclones also produce wind damage however they are usually classified separately because the wind speeds are much higher. 

The most common damage caused by windstorms are:

  •         Roof damage
  •         Fallen trees
  •         Down power lines

It is important to keep your insurance up to date, just in case you need to make a claim, be sure to take photos of the damage that the windstorm causes to your home.  It may or may not be covered.  Insurance does not cover gradual damage, so it is important to upkeep your property.  After a windstorm it is suggested to check the roof for loose shingles or spots of missing asphalt as the wind tends to cause damage to the edges of the roof first, causing a chain reaction.  If the roof is old or you suspect it’s got issues you should have it checked as it could cause the roof to leak or rot due to water exposure.

Insurance coverage

12/11/2020 (Permalink)

When examining your home insurance policy, it is essential to note the difference between water and flood damage. Water damage is generally covered by your homeowners’ insurance policy and protects you in situations like a leak or burst pipe. Flood damage is defined as a general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of two or more acres and two or more properties of normally dry land. With flood damage, the water comes from a natural source, and two or more properties are involved.

Home insurance companies do not offer flood insurance, and policies must be obtained through the National Flood Insurance Program. This means that homeowners who are unprotected and experience flood damage have to pay for water damage restoration out of pocket, which can mean thousands of dollars in expenses. 

Water damage mitigation does not have to be a painful process! Check your policy and ensure that you are protected in the event of a disaster. Call SERVPRO of Middletown/Springboro for your water or flood damage needs at 513-422-9200. We talk to your insurance company for you and make sure you are informed every step of the way.

Fire pit safety tips

10/26/2020 (Permalink)

Backyard Fire Pit Safety Tips:

  • Whether you prefer a built-in or portable fire pit, choose one that is not too large for the area. The pit should be a minimum of 10 feet away from any structures or combustible materials as well as away from trees, fences, sheds, power lines, and telephone wires.
  • Make sure that the seating area is large enough and properly placed for comfort and ventilation.
  • Check wind direction before lighting a fire.
  • Don’t use flammable fluids (gasoline, lighter fluid, etc.) to light or relight fires.
  • To start the fire, use a lighter to ignite crumpled pieces of paper covered with small sticks. Then, add larger sticks and a log or two to keep it burning. 
  • Burn only dry material. Damp material will create excess smoke. 
  • Don’t wear flammable clothing (like nylon) or any loose-fitting clothing.
  • Never leave the fire unattended, and keep pets and children far away from the fire as they will be attracted to it.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher, garden hose, or bucket of water nearby.
  • As the fire dies down, use a shovel and spread out the ashes to allow them to cool down. Then slowly pour water over those ashes and watch them closely to be sure that no burning embers remain or reignite. Put the cooled ashes in a specially designated ash storage metal can.
