Pet Safety in Winter

10/23/2018 (Permalink)

Temperatures will soon start dropping and many of us have four-legged friends that we tend to. Most of us are good about being aware of our animals in the extreme heat but watching out for them in the extreme cold is just as important. Here are a few tips to keep in mind during the winter time

  • Tip #1: Be aware of cats seeking warmth in your car engine. It’s always a safe bet to make some noise around the hood before you start the car.
  • Tip #2: There are dogs that just love to play in the snow. If that’s your animal be sure to wipe their paws as ice, salt and snow can be very painful stuck in their paws.
  • Tip #3: Don’t leave your animal in a cold car as it can act as a refrigerator.

Breast Cancer Awareness

10/16/2018 (Permalink)

While we normally bring tips related to your home or business, SERVPRO cares about the health of our customers as well. In honor of breast cancer awareness month, we have dug up some tips from the medical experts, on what we should do to reduce our risk of breast cancer. And men…don’t think you can turn this off, breast cancer while rare in men, can affect one in 1,000 men.

  • Tip #1: Don’t smoke; smoking significantly increases your risk of breast cancer.
  • Tip #2: Be physically active and control your weight. If you’ve been looking for a reason to get active again, don’t wait for that New Years resolution.
  • Tip #3: Don’t drink. The more you drink, the greater your risk of developing breast cancer.

Earthquake Safety

9/6/2018 (Permalink)

As many of you know, this region is very close to the New Madrid fault line, which records hundreds of very small quakes every year. Although most of these quakes are rarely felt, it is important to stay vigilant for the “big one” so here are some tips to keep you safe in case we get more than a small quake:

  • Tip #1: As soon as you start to feel the shaking, drop down and take cover under a desk or under a door frame.
  • Tip #2: Stay indoors until the shaking stops but be aware and stay away from bookcases or furniture that can fall on you.
  • Tip #3: Make sure you and your family have a plan in case you are separated and always have access to an emergency kit.
