Fire and Water – Cleanup and Restoration


Leave a comment

Remembering the victims of Hurricane Sandy

Two years ago Hurricane Sandy caused physical and emotional damage. There are so many communities that are still suffering. As many recover and rebuild, we are reminded at how strong our communities are. The volunteers and people that have helped the victims is remarkable.

We look back today to remember the mark Sandy left on us. We will never forget the devastation it caused, the families that suffered and the lives lost.

Are your childrens’ Halloween costumes safe?

Halloween is creeping up on us and many kids have already picked out their costumes, but how safe are they?

the simpsons

Whether your costume is homemade or store bought, there are some safety tips to keep in mind:

  • Look for flame resistant materials: Synthetic fibers like Polyester or Nylon.
  • Glitter can also be more flammable.
  • Be mindful that the costume fits properly. Any long fabric is more likely to graze over a lit jack-o-lantern.
    • Many kids love to be superheroes and princesses but we must be careful of long caps, dress trains, and dangling sleeves.
  • If the children are wearing a mask, make sure there is proper ventilation and the eye holes are big enough for them to see out.
  • Try to work reflector strips into your child’s costume, or give them a flash light or glow sticks.
  • Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.

We hope you have a FUN and SAFE Halloween!!!

We Don’t Just Do Residential!

It is important to have a clean and professional business. When a disaster strikes, the restoration process should only be done by trained and certified technicians, in order to get your business back up and running as soon as possible. Fifty percent of businesses may never reopen after suffering a disaster. Every hour spent restoring your business back to pre-loss condition is an hour of lost revenue and productivity.

No job is too big!

We do everything from office buildings, apartment buildings, hotels, manufacturing and industrial buildings, shopping malls, government and military buildings, etc.

Do you have an escape plan for you and your family?

Fast Facts:

  • Only 26 percent of families have developed and practiced a home fire escape plan.*
  • Eighty percent of American’s don’t realize that home fires are the single most common disaster across the nation.*
  • The number of home fires the American Red Cross has responded to has risen 10% since 2000.*

Source: American Red Cross,*

Make a plan:

  • Get your family together to develop a plan.
  • Take a walk through your house to find all the possible exits and escape routes.
  • If you have children, consider drawing up a map of escape routes and mark two ways out of each room, including windows and doors.
  • Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside of each sleeping area and on each separate level.
  • Make sure nothing is blocking escape routes. They should be cleared and easily accessed and opened.
  • Make an outside meeting place, a safe distance from the house.
  • Make your home number easily visible from the street.
  • If there are any infants, older adults, or family members that with mobility limitations make sure to assign someone to help them, as well as a backup person.
  • Also, plan ahead if you have pets.
  • Practice twice a year.
