Fire extinguishers can be used to help control small fires during emergency situations when used correctly.  The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) suggests remembering the word PASS while using the device.

  • Pull the pin. Hold the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
  • Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
  • Sweep the nozzle from side to side.

There are different classes of fire and each fire extinguisher has labels designated for the type of fire to use the extinguisher on. Become familiar with the device before a fire breaks and double-check the fire extinguisher label to make sure it’s designed to fight the type of fire.

Flash Flood in Sugar Land

flood scene with SERVPRO logo SERVPRO of Sugar Land is always here for our community when mother nature strikes!

The saying goes "April showers bring May flowers", however, there have not been a lot of showers this past April.  It does not hurt to be prepared for storms though.  Heavy rain storms can cause flash floods which can be tremendously dangerous.  Flash floods can occur with little or no warning and can become deep and fierce very quickly.  These waters move with great strength at fast speeds.  Because of this, they can cause extensive damage, destroying buildings and uprooting trees.  In addition, flash floods typically occur as the result of large or intense storms such as hurricanes where massive amounts of rain are released in a brief period of time. 

Follow your local news source for up-to-date information on weather situations and pay close attention to their warnings. SERVPRO of Sugar Land is here for you! Give us a call for your storm damage needs!

Spring Cleaning Tips

Now that it’s spring, it’s time to do something about the winter clutter that has been building up in your home over the winter months. Decluttering your home can help the transitioning into warmer weather easier and the lifestyle you want. Add a little freshness to your home by trying these ideas to jump-start the spring cleaning! 

  • Start with a schedule: Review your home, and make a list of what is needed. Then you can prioritize and schedule your cleaning to keep from being overwhelmed.
  • Create a checklist: Create a plan of action. Take an area and break it down into sections. Create different tasks that need to be done around the house
  • Organize and pace yourself:  A really good deep spring cleaning should take more than a day. Set aside a weekend to steadily get the major chores done. An average amount of time to clean an area can take about 2-6 hours.
  • Work from the top down:  Start from the top and work your way down. When you begin dusting a room, it would only make sense to start at the top and work your way down. By starting from the top, you will be able to save more time and energy instead of having to repeat the task at hand.
  • Read Instructions: Read the labels on the product you are using.  Be sure to follow the directions to avoid any recommended materials to use or supplies before using the item and be sure not to mix any hazardous cleaning agents together (example: do not mix bleach and ammonia together)
  • Keep up rather than catch up: To make your future spring cleaning easier on you, create a monthly checklist of a task to do. Break it up into rooms or sections followed by a flexible schedule to get these chores accomplished.

SERVPRO of Sugar Land is a team of specialists, trained in cleanup and care for your home. We are always here to help make it “Like it never even happened.” Give our team a call today if you experience any water or fire damage at (281) 313-1338.
