Beware of Carbon Monoxide!

Carbon Monoxide is challenging to detect and is often called the silent killer. The problem is you can't see or smell carbon monoxide. Carbon Monoxide  has no smell, color, or taste.  At high levels, it can poison or kill a person or pets in minutes.

It is important to know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. The symptoms can include a dull headache, dizziness, muscle weakness, confusion, nausea or vomiting, blurred vision, confusion or heart, and respiratory diseases. If you ever suspect any of your symptoms are related to carbon monoxide, move to fresh air and get out of your home immediately — call 911. The experts will come and access any issues you may have in your home.

As a homeowner, it is crucial to inspect all fuel-burning appliances, fireplaces, wood stoves, etc. by a trained professional every year. It can ensure that your home is safe. It is vital to have carbon monoxide detectors in your home. There are many options available and are easy to install and test regularly.

What the Haboob?

Desert Haboob! We can help with storm damage!

Haboobs and dust storms can pose a real danger! It is essential to know that whether you are visiting or a resident of Arizona! What is a Haboob? It is an Arizona dust storm that is caused when cold air from a thunderstorm rushes toward the ground. The mix of desert heat and cold air causes large amounts of dust and sand to create a massive cloud. While most dust storms can be small, there have been very large haboobs in the Valley area.

<p499">Here are a few safety tips to think about:

  • If you are caught outside, take a piece of cloth and cover your nose and mouth. If you can dampen the fabric, do so. Keep your sunglasses or glasses on. Shield your head with your arms or any shelter you have available like a backpack, blanket, or pillow. Do not try to outrun the storm; it is easy to get lost.
  • Just like a severe rainstorm or monsoon, do not drive. If you find yourself on the road, pull over to the right side. Turn your engine off and close all windows and vents. Cover your face with fabric and put your sunglasses or glasses on to protect your eyes.
  • If you are at home and have time, try to secure lawn furniture or items that can be carried off in the wind. Close and lock all windows and doors. Do not go outside until the storm is over.
  • You should wait until the storm has subsided before you attempt to leave your place of safety. The impacts of a Haboob or dust storm can last for days after. Your security and the safety of your family and pets are the primary concern. It is normal to want to head outside after a storm but wait until you are sure the danger has passed.

The after-effects of a storm can last for days. Should you suffer storm damage from a dust storm or Haboob, call SERVPRO of Chandler South (480) 895-4670. We offer board-up services and are available to help 24/7 for all your restoration and storm damage concerns.

Mold In Kitchen

Mold is found in both the interior and exterior of your home or business. Mold spores thrive on moisture, dark places with a good oxygen supply. Mold lives in temperatures between 72 to 82 degrees. There is no particular amount water or humidity that mold needs to survive. If it is a little damp or very humid mold can grow.

Commonly mold is found in kitchens. Some of the primary sources can be: 

  • Dishwasher leaks
  • Sink supply and drain lines
  • Washing Machine supply and drain lines
  • Condensation on pipes underneath the sink
  • Counter tops and back splashes that are not installed
  • Wet Cabinets
  • Any spills that are not properly cleaned up
