Prepare An Emergency Evacuation Plan

9/21/2017 (Permalink)

Community Prepare An Emergency Evacuation Plan Have a plan for evacuating if a disaster strikes Delaware County, PA

An Evacuation Plan Prepared In Advance Is A Good Strategy For Success, And Overall Safety, In Case Of A Disaster In Delaware County, PA

Well before a disaster or some unforeseen event strikes Delaware County, PA, you should be thinking about an evacuation plan in the event you and your family are forced to leave your home on short notice. Emergencies can come in a variety of forms with varying preparation times, from storms with fair warning to a more immediate crisis, such as a fire.

An evacuation plan that is spelled out and shared with your family members well in advance is a good strategy for success, and overall safety, in case of a disaster in Delaware County, PA. Consider where you will go and how you will get there, how you will stay in touch and who will know where you are.

Prepare an Emergency Evacuation Plan

Step 1: Designate a place for all family members to meet while ensuring the meeting place is outside the impacted evacuation area.

Step 2: Map out a primary evacuation route, including alternate routes in case your intended route is blocked.

Step 3: Create a communication plan for use if family members become separated. Develop an alternate plan that everyone is comfortable with in case there is no landline or cell service. Remember that during certain emergencies, public safety officials will communicate the need to evacuate and other developments through various methods including the news media, social media and alert broadcasts to smartphones. These can be valuable information resources for individual family members should anyone become separated.

Step 4: Be sure that you have ample fuel in your vehicle to reach your meeting place, remembering that you may not be able to take your preferred evacuation route.

Step 5: Identify a contact person outside the affected area and give that person’s contact information to everyone in the family so he or she can serve as a point of contact should you get separated.

Step 6: Share cell phone numbers for texting, as text messages will often go through if cell service deteriorates.

Step 7: Grab your Emergency Survival Kit and be sure it includes a portable radio, a cell phone charger, a charger for any tablets or laptops, as well as fresh batteries, to ensure you can get the most up-to-date information. Don’t forget to bring any vital medications.

Creating A Home Inventory Checklist Now Can Help You Recover Faster After A Loss in Drexel Hill, PA

9/20/2017 (Permalink)

Community Creating A Home Inventory Checklist Now Can Help You Recover Faster After A Loss in Drexel Hill, PA When disaster hits your property in Drexel Hill, PA and you need restoration services, Call SERVPRO of Upper Darby, PA (610) 352-0700

Take The Time To Document Your Belongings Before A Disaster Strikes Drexel Hill, PA

After a disastrous event in which you lost personal property from your home, it may be difficult to recall the details of all your belongings. In this situation, having a current inventory of your personal property, including make and model numbers, may help you with any potential insurance claims. Taking the time to document your belongings now can help you recover faster after a loss.

Steps You Can Use To Help Prepare You Home Inventory Checklist

Step 1: Walk Through Your Home. Compiling a comprehensive home inventory takes time and effort. The more detailed your inventory, the more useful it will be if you have to make a claim. Document personal property inside your home and on your property that may be of value.     

Step 2: Keep Your Inventory in a Safe Place. Creating a digital home inventory and storing it off-site will help ensure that it won’t be lost, stolen or damaged during any disaster at your home. You can also create a photo or video inventory and upload it to a cloud-based service.

  • Take a picture of relevant rooms or items. Label pictures of rooms and important individual items with a description, including where you bought it and the make, model and serial number. Don’t forget to inventory items that may be out of sight in storage closets or drawers.
  • Walk through your home or office using your phone to shoot video of the contents, describing them as you go.
  • Digital home inventory programs allow you to upload multiple photos of each item, including photos of the serial number, receipt and other identifying details. If you choose to create a paper version, consider storing it off-site in a safe deposit box.

Step 3: Update Your Inventory Often. When you make a significant purchase, add the information to the inventory while the details are fresh in your mind. This is also a good time to delete items that you have replaced or no longer own.

Step 4: Remember Your Business Assets. While most people think of their home when making an inventory, it is important to document the contents of your business, if applicable, as well.

Step 5: Consider Valuable Items. Valuable items like jewelry, art, and collectibles may have increased in value since you brought them into your home. Check with your insurance company to make sure that you have adequate insurance coverage for these items as they may need to be insured separately. Consider putting jewelry or other valuables that you don’t often wear or use in a safe deposit box.

Carpets After A Water Damage In Your Upper Darby, PA Home

Cleaning Carpets After A Water Damage In Your Upper Darby, PA Home Call SERVPRO of Upper Darby, PA if your carpet has been affected by water damage. (610) 352-0700

Water Damaged Carpet – Can it be Saved?

The answer is yes, most water damaged carpet can be saved, if it is dried quickly. When SERVPRO of Upper Darby, PA arrives at a water damage loss, our Technicians will quickly begin to extract the water out of the carpet. Once they have extracted as much water as they can they inspect it for damage.

A common problem with water damaged carpet is, if not dried quickly there will be delamination and mildew damage. Our Technicians will the inspect the carpet backing to see if the carpet backing latex adhesive looks sound, or if there is any mold or delamination.

Another reason that water damaged carpet can’t be saved is damaged caused by sewage contamination. If any of these issues are present, it’s best to discard the carpet.

Having a company that can coordinate the whole process from start to finish makes your life easier, and gets you back in your home or business faster. “Like it never even happened.”

Need Carpet or Upholstery Cleaning?
Call SERVPRO of Upper Darby, PA Today – (610) 352-07000

We also offer a range of specialized cleaning methods:

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets.
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types.
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry.
  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue.

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.


IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include: 

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Professional Cleaning

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today.
