What is the Home Fire Campaign?

Fire Damage What is the Home Fire Campaign? Home Fire

Each year, the Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters, the vast majority of which are home fires. So we set a goal to reduce fire-related deaths and injuries in the US by 25% by 2020.

On average:

  • 7 people die every day from a home fire, most impacting children and the elderly
  • 36 people suffer injuries as a result of home fires every day
  • Over $7 billion in property damage occurs every year

Home Fire Safety

Learn how your family can prevent home fires, escape from a home fire in 2 minutes, and recover after a home fire.

Did you know that if a fire starts in your home you may have as little as two minutes to escape? During a fire, early warning from a working smoke alarm plus a fire escape plan that has been practiced regularly can save lives. Learn what else to do to keep your loved ones safe!

Top Tips for Fire Safety

  1. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
  2. Test smoke alarms every month. If they’re not working, change the batteries.
  3. Talk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.
  4. If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.

Hurricane Harvey

Storm Damage Hurricane Harvey Hurricane Harvey near peak intensity prior to landfall in southern Texas on August 25

Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year period with no hurricanes of Category 3 intensity or higher making landfall in the United States. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches (1,000 mm) of rain as the system meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing catastrophic flooding. Harvey is the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the contiguous United States. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 13,000 rescues.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with all those affected by #HurricaneHarvey. SERVPRO® Disaster Recovery Teams, made up of combined personnel and resources from our 1,700+ Franchises nationwide, are mobilizes and ready to provide emergency services in affected areas. Call 1-800-SERVPRO if you're in need. #HeretoHelp

We were able to assess the area and let the homeowner know that we will do our best to clean up the damaged areas to where it will feel like home again.

What's In Your Walls

Mold Remediation What's In Your Walls Mold found within the wall joints, behind the wall paper that the condo unit has had on the wall for years.

SERVPRO of North Sarasota was conducting a mold inspection and found out that many of the mold issues were coming from within the walls of this condo unit. There had been a past water issue with a cracked pipe and the water was never taken care of properly which resulted in mold growth. The condo unit had years worth of wall paper which resulted in a double layer of protection to make it easier for the mold to grow.

Now, with SERVPRO of North Sarasota conducting the work. We found the issue and were able to remove the drywall and attack the mold right where it was growing.  The customer could not believe her eyes when we showed her just how bad mold can get.

The unit owner was surprised, but happy that we were able to take care of this before it got any worse.

Any mold problems call SERVPRO of North Sarasota.

Mold Remediation Be Informed Mold in your home

Molds are found in every environment,

and mold spores reproduce rapidly when

moisture is present. An Institute of

Medicine study found excessive dampness

indoors encourages the growth of molds

and other organisms, causing a public

health problem. The EPA advised that the

potential health concerns from molds are

an important reason to prevent moisture

problems leading to mold growth. It is

especially important to clean up existing

indoor mold growth to increase property

appeal and retain its value. If a property

has experienced a water intrusion,

SERVPRO of North Sarasota can

inspect the damage to see whether

moisture has penetrated materials or is

allowing mold growth.
