Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere.

October is Fire Prevention Month - a perfect time to examine emergency preparedness for your home or business, including a fire escape plan.  Do you have a fire escape plan?  Have you changed your smoke alarm batteries within the last year?  

SERVPRO of South Eugene/Florence provides our customers with an ERP (Emergency Ready Profile) to have at your fingertips when emergency strikes.  SERVPRO of South Eugene/Florence prides itself on helping our customers be prepared BEFORE disaster strikes.  

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) designates a week each October to focus on fire prevention awareness, which is the perfect time for you to contact us to set up a time for an ERP.  "Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere."  This theme hopes to create awareness in the steps necessary to reduce the chance of a fire and how to react in the event a fire does happen.  The NFPA states the following:  

“LOOK” for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

“LISTEN” for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

“LEARN” two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

Stay safe and prepare now to help ensure you are ready for any disaster.  SERVPRO of South Eugene/Florence is ready to help you prepare for a disaster, just as much as we are there to help you through a disaster!

Types of Smoke

9/3/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of South Eugene/Florence professionals know smoke can penetrate various cavities within the structure, causing hidden damage and odor.  Their knowledge of building systems  helps them investigate how far smoke damage may have spread.  The following are additional facts you may not know about smoke:

*Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.

*Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.

*The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process. 

TYPES of SMOKE:

*Wet Smoke (Plastic and Rubber) - Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary.  Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

*Dry Smoke (Paper and Wood) - Fast-burning, high temperatures; heat rises, therefore, smoke rises.

*Protein Fire Residue (Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire) - Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

*Fuel Oil Soot (Furnace Puff Backs) - While "puff backs" can create havoc for SERVPRO of South Eugene/Florence professionals can, in most cases, restore the contents and structure quickly.

*Other types (Tear gas, fingerprint powder, and fire extinguisher residue) - Special loss situations require special care.
