Summer Grill Fire Jersey Shore Barbecue Summer Fire Safety

As summer fast approaches the Jersey Shore, we are consumed with thoughts of the 4th of July, barbecues, camping, vacation and all things hot weather. As the temperature rises, so does the risk for a fire to break out. Some things to remember while enjoying the hot weather: 

1.Be sure to clean the grill  

Grease is very flammable. Clean all the built-up grime after every use.  

2. Fire pits or open fires- Make sure the fire is out! 

When you’re done roasting the marshmallows make sure the fire is out and cooled down completely.  

3. Have water or sand ready for backup! 

Whether a bucket or a bottle, in situations where fire or embers are present a water or sand reserve to control a possible flare is an important precaution.  

4. Always supervise fireworks and sparklers! 

It’s all fun and games until the lawn catches on fire. Keep a close eye and a steady hand when setting these off.  

We hope these tips are helpful! For information on fire damage check out our Fire Damage Tips page to learn more about what to do if a fire occurs or call our experts at 609-549-0379.

Storm Damage from Lightning Storm Damage from Lightning

Thunder and lightning can be cool to watch. It’s a great party-starter and sometimes gets you to call the neighbors over for a front porch pizza party so you can watch it together. Before you call the pizza guy, there’s another number you need to save in your phone: 609-549-0379. That’s the number for SERVPRO of Manahawkin.  

What most don’t think about when the lightning strikes are the damages that it can cause to your home. The damage from a direct hit can be devastating and we’ve all seen the pictures. However, indirect lightning strikes can cause tremendous damage that sometimes is not immediately apparent. Plumbing, electrical and electronic components are examples of building components that are vulnerable to the tremendous physical and electrical impacts caused by an indirect lightning strike. Some examples of these items are Computers, Thermostats, HVAC Equipment, Sprinkler Timers, Outdoor Lighting Equipment, Pool Equipment, Well Pumps, Generators and Alarm System Components.
