There Is More To A Fire Than Just Smoke
Exposure to smoke, ashes, and soot from a fire can have harmful effects to your home and health. Long-term exposure to toxins found in smoke, ashes, and soot can contaminate and damage your home as well as cause health effects.
It's possible your home may have dangerous toxins.
If your home has recently been exposed to smoke, ashes, or soot from a fire, it's possible that dangerous particles and contaminates have settled into your home. And although smoke damage can be visible to the eye, it can also be invisible and hard to trace, hiding in hard to reach places. Behind furniture, attics, air ducks, and other air cleaning systems.
A simple clean or wipe down is not enough, and in most cases, can even worsen your situation.
Improper cleaning can further spread dangerous toxins to other areas of the house not affected by a fire. Turning on fans and other HVAC units too can further spread toxins throughout your home, making your home a fire and toxin hazard. Smoke odor and toxins may also remain in furniture, clothing, carpet, and other places after a fire, unless properly cleaned and deodorized. Professional chemicals and equipment are needed to eliminate smoke, ashes, soot, odor and other dangerous toxins. Preparing and Informing yourself for a fire can be the best thing you can do for your home and your health.

Are We In The Clear?
It is hard to believe that this time last year we were all cleaning up from the tail end of a massive storm season. Our area had downed trees and power poles. Debris lined the low-lying streets of Beaumont and Banning.
Flash forward to, today. We are 70 degrees and sunny. What a difference a year makes. For the sake of us all and our community I hope that we have nice weather for the remainder of the quarantine and after as well. we all deserve some much-needed time with our friends outside. Maybe visit the park, ride your bike with your arms stretched out far and wide while you scream freedom!! I can see all of us now cheering in the streets, taking to our communities to get our economy back up and running.
Whatever we do I hope it takes our mind off trouble before we must start planning for the next storm... Fire Season.
Snow On The Mountains In April
Look at the beautiful view we get to see from the shop? Banning and Beaumont have the most beautiful mountain views, arguably in all of Southern CA.
It is mid-April and we have had some nice rains and beautiful sunshine. Many people are starting their Spring Cleaning. One of the things to look out for is signs of water damage.
If you have followed our blog, you should already be able to recognize signs of water damage but if you are new here we will go over a couple of the big ones.
On your ceiling look for discoloration, bubbled paint or bowed drywall.
On the exterior of your house, go around the perimeter and look where the soil meets the house. Look for chipped paint, broken stucco or bowed wood siding.
If you see any potential damage, you will want to call us right away so we can come out and inspect the area. You want to always handle potential water damage IMMEDIATELY after you notice it. Not only to prevent further damage but this can impact your insurance claim if the need exists.
So as spring ends and summer begins to arrive, make sure you escaped our winter season without any water damage!!
How Our Community Does Business Is Changing
When something big is happening in the country or world, it is rarely reflected in our small-town communities of Beaumont and Banning. Yet, in the last couple weeks we have seen major changes and we are all learning to adapt and keep going.
Most of us have had to shut our physical doors and find another way of doing business. Over the phone or online sales, closing shop and meeting with only one client at time.
We here at SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning have been affected too. We have made every possible adjustment for the safety of our community, families and friends.
We are still able to help you with your Fire & Water Restoration needs 24 hours a day 7 days a week. That, nor our trusted methods of cleaning and restoration haven't changed.
What has changed is we've moved our daily, office meeting online to a video chat. That way we can still maintain our close office bond by seeing each other but stay within the small gathering guidelines.
Another way our business has adapted is we have suspended our business visits. Out of respect for the health of our community business leaders and their customers, we have decided that it is best to communicate via phone and email. So as much as we miss our visits to all of the business owner's in our community, we are proud to do our part to help flatten the curve.
If you need help with our standard services, or could use some help with some ideas to help your business flatten the curve
