Minimize Your Risk

Cities and states are taking increasingly drastic measures to curb the severity of the pandemic, including the closing of bars, restaurants, and public venues. In some areas, officials have issued “shelter in place” orders in order to compel residents to stay in their homes and limit movement. To further protect yourself, minimize your exposure with the following tips:

Practice Good Hygiene

  • Clean hands with sanitizer and wash your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching your face and cover coughs and sneezes
  • Disinfect “high touch” surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, tables, doorknobs, and handrails regularly
  • Increase ventilation by opening windows or adjusting air conditioning
  • Stop shaking hands – use other noncontact methods of greeting
  • Stay home if you are sick

HOW TO: Remove Ketchup Stains

The Key to Removing Ketchup Stains Is to Act Quickly

The longer it stays on the fabric or clothing the more likely it is to set in, and the more work and effort it will take to remove it.

Remove any excess ketchup with a spoon or knife, but be careful not to rub it into the fabric. Avoid dabbing at it as this can spread the stain.  It’s important to read all wash care labels before washing and test any stain-removing solutions on an area of the fabric first.

Carpet Delamination After A Water Damage In Upper Darby, PA

Carpet Delamination Is A Real Risk.

Carpet has a primary backing and a secondary backing. The secondary backing is the one that is in contact with the floor underneath. Typically, soaked carpets and padding from groundwater flooding requires disposal and then a thorough drying of the floor base.
 
Delamination occurs when the primary backing becomes separated from the secondary backing. There are several causes of delamination, including poor quality manufacturing and improper installation. Another reason is flood damage. Water might cause the bonding glue to break down and the two backings to separate.
