Pool Safety In East Side

Pool Safely Tips and Facts from Your Local SERVPRO of Gresham

When summer brings the heat crashing into your daily routine, a pool is a great way to cool off and break up the dog days of summer.

Swimming pools and other water features on your property require regular maintenance and awareness of safety when friends and family, particularly small children, are swimming in your pool.

If your pool causes water damage to your East Side property, SERVPRO of Gresham has a team of highly trained professionals who can restore your property back to pre-damage condition.

Don’t forget to be safe! Parents should be supervising any young children who don’t have strong swimming skills. Most drowning deaths among young children happen at times when parents are nearby, but the children are not properly supervised. Never leave your child or their friends unattended around water. Infants and children under the age of 2 can drown in as little as one inch of water. Enrolling your children in year-round swim lessons at your local swimming pool is the best way to prevent drowning accidents in the future.

Prevent Gresham Home Fires In July

The best way to stay safe this firework season is to go to a firework show put on by professionals. If you can't resist lighting some off at home, here are the recommended safety tips from National Council on Firework Safety:

  • Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.

  • A responsible adult SHOULD supervise all firework activities.  Never give fireworks to children.

  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
  • Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.

  • Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby.
  • Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS containers.
  • Do not experiment with homemade fireworks.
  • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
  • FAA regulations PROHIBIT the possession and transportation of fireworks in your checked baggage or carry-on luggage.
  • Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.

6 Mold Remediation Facts From Your Local SERVPRO of Gresham 

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Gresham Home Attic Water Damage

Ways to prevent your attic from water damage

Water damage and mold are most likely to occur in your attic. Most of us only go up to our attics when we need something. Be sure to check your attic frequently for leaks and other possible issues. During storms, your attic and roof take the brunt of it. Stains appearing on your ceiling is a sign of a leak in your attic.

Here are four steps to help you keep your attic water-free:

  • Check Your Attic Regularly

It is important to check your attic as often as your check the rest of your home. Your attic could be holding water, which will cause your ceiling to leak, as well as cause mold damages.  

  • Check your Roofing After Severe Weather

After a severe storm or heavy winds, it is crucial to check your roofing and ensure it is still intact. A missing shingle could cause water damages to your attic, which will eventually cause mold and major water damages.

  • Check for Leaks in your Attic

When in your attic, give it a once-over to make sure it doesn’t have any leaks or small holes that could allow water inside.

  • Make Sure Your Water Heater is Working Properly

If your water heater is old or isn’t functioning as well as it should, you should have it checked by a professional. If your water heater leaks, you will end up with a flooded home, and possible major water damages.

If you’re struggling with water damage in your attic or other parts of your home, give SERVPRO of Gresham a call at (503) 665-7752.
