Summer is just around the corner it can also bring the threat of dangerous storms. There are ways to reduce your lightning risk while outdoors.

Buildings such as offices, schools, and homes have good protection. Once you are inside, stay away from windows and doors. Make sure to stay away from anything that conducts electricity. 

If you have no safe shelter anywhere nearby, the following actions may reduce your risk:

  • Never shelter under an isolated tree or utility pole; these areas tend to get hit easier. 
  • Get off hills, mountain ridges, or peaks.
  • Get out and away from ponds, lakes, and water.
  • Stay away from objects that conduct electricity.
  • Don’t lie flat on the ground.

Make sure to monitor the weather and postpone or cancel outdoor activities when thunderstorms are in the forecast. Always make sure that you are safe at all times; even if your building is damaged. We are here to help you with the damage that can be caused by storm damage.

  4. Remove Water: Once you get approval from your insurer to remove the water, use a sump pump and call a restoration company. 
  5. Mitigate Mold Damage: Mold can happen within 24 to 48 hours of a flood. Make sure to remove wet contents, including carpeting and bedding quickly.

Natural disasters happen and we can’t always prevent the damage it might be. However, it is important to prepare as best as you can BEFORE one happens. Here are some tips: 

  1. Double-Check Your Insurance?: Not every policy is designed with natural disasters in mind. Sometimes excessive damages from natural causes will not be fully covered. It is important to make sure to chat with your insurance agent to ensure you have coverage sooner rather than later. 
  2. Create Your Action Plan?: It is important to have a plan in place as well as necessary supplies. Make sure to document local shelters, evacuation routes, and medical facilities. 
  3. Choose a Restoration Company to Work With?: The best way to do that is to work with a restoration company that has expertise: SERVPRO of Framingham

With the warmer weather comes much more outdoor fires such as a bonfire. While these can be fun for many, they can also be dangerous and cause a bigger fire to a property. 

Here are some safety guidelines to follow before the first match is lit.

  • Never build a bonfire on a high-wind night.
  • Keep a bucket of water or garden hose nearby in case the fire begins to spread. 
  • Keep a close eye on the bonfire as well as anyone nearby the fire.
  • Do not burn aerosols, canisters, or anything containing foam or paint. 
  • Ensure the wood you are burning is dry and seasoned.
  • The pile shouldn't be bigger than 5' x 5'.

After the bonfire is done, turn over the materials with metal shovels and douse the area with water. Make sure to follow all fire and safety guidelines to ensure that a fire doesn't start.

Grilling is a great way to enjoy the nice summer weather. Grill fires can start and spread quickly when the grill is placed too close to a fire hazard. Here are some tips to help keep your home safe when using a grill. 

  1. Only use grills outside: Do not set it up inside your open garage or under a covered balcony. Any combustible materials that hang over the grill when it’s in use can catch fire quickly. 
  2. Place your grill away from your home: You should avoid placing your grill outside the back door or on the back deck because it can pose a potential fire hazard. Grills that are placed too close can cause a fire. 
  3. Make sure your grill is on a flat, level surface: Have your grill set up on a stable surface such as a concrete pad. This will help it remain level while cooking food.
  4. Check your grill for leaks: If you store your grill inside during the winter months, check it over before grilling season begins. Check the gas lines to make sure that they are free of leaks before using your grill.
  5. Always clean your grill after use: Clean your grill after each use with a brush and empty the grease tray when it begins to fill up.
  6. Never leave your barbecue grill unattended: Never leave the grill unattended while you are cooking food. 
  7. Keep a spray bottle on hand: Keep a spray bottle filled with water beside your grill so that you can quickly extinguish smaller flames.

Following these charcoal and gas, grill safety tips will help you and your family enjoy a safe grilling season all summer long.
