Nothing tastes better in the Summer than something hot off the grill in Mercer County NJ.   Bring on the burgers and dogs!  Life is easy, enjoying the backyard BBQ with friends and family.  Keep it like that with these few fire safety tips:

  • Make sure the grill is on a flat, level surface
  • It’s best to keep at least a 3ft zone around the grill to keep children and pets safe
  • Open your gas/propane grill lid before lighting
  • Clean your grill after each use
  • Never Leave the Grill Unattended
  • If using charcoal, do not dispose of hot embers. Placed cooled embers in a metal container

Commercial Water Damage & Restoration in Mercer County, NJ

4/20/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial water damage and restoration is often more complex than residential damage and generally needs a more intensive approach due to the scope of the water-compromised area, the need for the continuity of the business operations and the varied occupants of the building. 

Maintenance of commercial buildings may be overlooked, but routine checks of windows, roofs and drainage/downspouts and gutters are the preventive measures that preserve the integrity of the exterior of your building and help to avoid potential water damage. Interior maintenance of HVAC, plumbing and safety systems are also critical to ensure they are working efficiently and to prevent costly expenditures down the road. Minor issues addressed in a timely fashion is a great investment for your tenants and maintains the value of your commercial property.

Our team of professionals are trained in our Commercial Restoration Training Program (CRTP), receiving the expert knowledge needed to successfully manage a commercial restoration project. 

Commercial buildings range from 1,000 square feet to over 1,000,000 square feet and based on the damage sustained, require more time to plan a scope of work. Due to the varied uses of commercial space demands, as well as the additional consideration about the occupants of the building, the activities in the structure and any individuals visiting the building, will add to the complexities of the mitigation and restoration process.   SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton team of professionals will handle all aspects of the process, from the cost estimate of restoration, supplies needed, and coordination with staff, management and facility owners.

Dryer Fire Prevention For Your Burlington County Home

3/24/2022 (Permalink)

Keep your Burlington County home risk free with these simple preventative maintenance tips for your household dryer.

According to the National Fire Protection Agency, almost 16,000 homes were impacted by fires caused by large appliances of which 92% of the fires were from dryers. Dryer fires accounted for approximately $238 million in property loss, over 350 injuries as well as isolated fatalities. Dryer fires are a fairly common cause of home fires, the potential culprit of these fires were because they failed to clean the dryer vents.

Dryer Fire Prevention Tips

  • Clean the lint trap after every load to avoid lint build up, so that it doesn’t cause a fire.
  • Someone should be home and awake while the dryer is running.
  • Clean the vents outside at least two times a year to clean any lint and dust buildup.
  • Clean the motor area with a vacuum, the panel may have to be removed in order to get to it. If there’s lint build up it can ignite if it gets too hot.
  • Don’t put mop heads in the dryer. The chemicals on the mop head can ignite from the dryer’s heat.
  • Keep the area around the dryer clear. The heat from the dryer might ignite something left too close to it.

How is Severe Weather Determined in Mercer County NJ

2/24/2022 (Permalink)

What determines severe weather in Mercer County, NJ?  Meteorologists look for signals and patterns forming in the existing atmospheric environment by reading Doppler radar scans of the mid and upper-level storm systems.  The amounts of moist air, dry air strength of storm motion determine the severity of the storm and the difficulty to forecast exactness.

SEVERE Weather manifest itself in multiple ways:

  • Thunderstorms
  • Tornadoes
  • Flash Flood
  • Hail
  • WIND

Wind generally accompanies the first four extreme weather conditions, but does not always coincide with precipitation. Winds are very unpredictable and varied. Strait-line defines the type of wind that accompanies thunderstorms, not associated with rotation.  Downdrafts are small scale that rapidly sink to the ground.  Macro-bursts are an outward burst of strong winds which cover a larger horizontal area.  Micro-bursts are smaller versions or macro-bursts and have a short duration of 5-10 minutes. A Downburst wind is both macro and micro, and generally localized strong wind conditions associated with thunderstorms. Gust fronts are winds that precede the storm caused by a clash of temperatures. Derecho is the term to describe a cluster of various winds with a wide swath and long duration most times associated with a large storm system.  Finally, the Haboob is a wind that accompanies a thunderstorm, but is dry and filled with dust particles, more common in the plains. 

All winds have the potential to create damage to both residential and commercial properties in Mercer County, NJ and has seen several very powerful, sustained wind events recently.  Damage may include downed trees, roof damage and damage done by blowing debris. Wind is an unpredictable natural phenomenon which can cause havoc, disrupting your life or business.
