They Are Not Spider Webs

2/25/2022 (Permalink)

When I first started out in the restoration industry, I thought that fires were the most interesting part of my job. From the burn patterns, figuring out the point of origin, to accelerants, arson investigations there were so many variables, each fire, and the way it burned was vastly different. I learned very quickly that the way you clean-up after a fire also varies from one fire to another. Over my 27-year career with SERVPRO I have learned so much.

When I went into these burned homes, I always wondered why the homes and commercial buildings we were cleaning up had such spider issues. Little did I know that in certain conditions called wet smoke, involving low heat, or smoldering type environments was what was causing these webs

Smoke webs are long chains of ionized smoke particles that assemble. Smoke-webs do not require pre-existing dust webs for support. Smoke webs are typically sticky and pungent and will smudge easily and show up areas where there is limited air flow, typically corners and edges of ceilings, in curtain folds, cabinets etc. In short, it is when plastics burn, the smoke carries a stronger charge than when wood, cotton, or paper burns. Depending on what exactly the webs are made of, they can be difficult to clean.

What To Do When Your Home Gets Struck By Lightning

2/24/2022 (Permalink)

Being that I have spent 27 years with SERVPRO one of the craziest phenomenon’s that I do not think that people understand is the damage that a lightning bolt can do by either striking your home or the ground around your home. In my career I have been out to several homes that did not even get hit with an actual strike, the ground next to there home was hit, yet there home still ended up on fire.

It is storming outside tons of thunder and lightning, then the lightning strikes your house directly, do you know what to do? I suggest calling the fire department immediately. Lightning striking your home can cause a fire in the attic or walls of your home. Just because you do not see flames after a lightning strike does not mean you are out of the woods; enclosed space fires are not visible in their beginning stages.

Cloud-to-ground lightning bolt's main objective is to find a path of least resistance from the clouds to the ground. Gas lines, water pipes, electrical lines, phone lines, cable/internet lines, metal window frames, gutters, downspouts, anything that is conductive in your house is ‘fair game’ for lightning to follow, although it does not need conductive objects to reach the ground. Lightning can move its way through miles of air, so conductive objects in a house are not a necessity they are just a mere 'convenience' that it will use when available. 

When lightning passes through a house it will often 'branch' (just like it does in the sky) and utilize more than one path to ground at a time. Lightning can also side flash, meaning it can also jump through the air from one conductive path to another. Let me give you an example, lightning’s path first may connect to your electric lines in the attic of your home, then possibly jump to better-grounded water pipes on the first or second floor. Remember you read earlier it is always trying to find that path of least resistance.

The current that lightning produces is significant to say the least. The damage lightning could cause to a home is substantial, but because the risk of your home getting struck by lightning is so low, very few homes have any sort of protection installed. It can also be very costly to have this protection system professional installed.

Below are three main hazards that can occur when a home gets struck:

  • Fire danger: Most building materials are flammable and unfortunately can easily ignite anywhere that channel passes through them. The attic or the roof of your home are the most common areas for a fire to ignite relating to a lightning strike, as the lightning channel must pass through some of the structural material in the roof before it can reach a more conductive path such as wiring or pipes. When lightning current travels through wires, it will commonly burn them up - presenting a fire ignition hazard anywhere along the affected circuits.
     
  • Power surge damage: If lightning chooses any of the home's electrical wiring as its primary or secondary path, the explosive surge can damage even non-electronic appliances that are connected. Even if most of the lightning current takes other paths to ground, the home's electrical system will experience enough of a surge to cause potentially significant damage to anything connected to it.
     
  • Shock wave damage: Another major source of damage from lightning is produced from the explosive shock wave. The shock waves that lightning create is what produces the thunder that we hear, and at close range, these waves can be destructive. Lightning can easily fracture concrete, brick, cinderblock, and stone. Brick and stone chimneys are commonly damaged severely by lightning. Lightning's shock waves can blow out plaster walls, shatter glass, create trenches in soil and crack foundations. Shrapnel is a common secondary damage effect, with objects sometimes found embedded in walls!

What about a structure that has no wiring or pipes? It is rare for a house to be devoid of electrically conductive paths to ground, but they do exist - such as camping/fishing cabins. In that case, all bets are off on how the lightning will choose to reach the ground. Again, the lightning has just jumped across miles of non-conductive air, so the lack of wires or pipes will not stop it from passing through a completely non-conductive structure. Such a structure does not provide a person with good lightning protection - so if you are caught in one during a storm, consider moving into a hard-topped automobile which provides a much better degree of safety.

What can you do to stay safe from lightning while inside of your house?

Since we know the common paths, lightning can follow in a house (wiring and pipes), the best thing to do is stay away from those paths as best as possible during a storm. Direct contact with them should be avoided. This includes taking a shower or bath, washing hands, doing dishes, typing on a computer, playing video games, and using a wired phone, tool, or appliance. Metal-framed windows should be avoided. Wireless devices are safe to use (cell phones, cordless phones, remotes, etc.).

Direct skin contact with earth ground should also be avoided, as lightning current can travel through soil and across wet/damp concrete. Wear shoes if walking in a basement, garage, or patio.

What to do if lightning strikes your house

If your home is hit directly by lightning, your immediate concern should be for any fires that may have been ignited. Call the fire department! Again, the most common place for lightning-caused fires in a home is in the attic, but they can start anywhere the lightning has traveled. Some fires inside the walls and attic may not be immediately apparent and not easily accessible. You should also watch for falling debris from damaged chimneys, shingles, or walls.

You should also strongly consider contacting an electrician to have your home's electrical system inspected for any damage that might present a future fire hazard.

Can you get struck by lightning inside of a house?

While it is rare, yes, it is possible to receive a lightning injury inside a house. Burns and electric shock injuries can occur when someone is in direct contact with one of lightning's chosen paths to ground. The most common indoor lightning injuries involve a person talking on a corded phone or resting on/looking out of a metal-framed window. "Side flashes" (discussed above) that jump across rooms can also cause injuries but are exceedingly rare. Indirect shrapnel-related injuries from building materials have also been documented.

How to protect sensitive electronics from a strike

It is impossible to provide 100% protection to sensitive electronics from a direct lightning strike. The best thing to do is to unplug any high-value item you wish to protect during storms, as surge protectors and UPS units cannot provide direct-strike protection. Some could argue that the risk of a direct strike to any given house is too low to justify unplugging everything for every storm that passes overhead. It is wise to make sure your homeowner's or renter's insurance covers lightning damage. Your insured expensive electronics can be replaced. However, consider irreplaceable such as the data saved on your computer (photos, videos, work files, etc.). You can mitigate that risk by performing frequent offsite backups and/or storing data on an external hard drive that you can unplug when needed.

Should I have a lightning protection system installed?


A professionally installed lightning protection system can reduce or eliminate the fire and injury hazards if your house happens to be struck directly. You will want to assess the risk of a strike and weigh the costs versus benefits. Insurance may be a more cost-effective option, especially if you live in an area of average to below-average thunderstorm frequency. If you are in a zone if frequent lightning activity (such as Florida and the Gulf Coast regions of the USA), a protection system may offer more of a benefit.

Protecting Yourself & Your Home

2/11/2022 (Permalink)

Here are eight tips you should know, plus resources to consult to learn more about protecting yourself and your home.

1. Maintain smoke alarms

  • Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home.
  • For better protection, smoke alarms should be interconnected so that if one sounds, they signal alerts throughout the home.
  • Dust or vacuum your smoke alarms at least once a year when the battery is replaced. Replace the alarm itself every 10 years.
  • If you are deaf or hard of hearing, install a smoke alarm that uses a flashing light or vibration to signal smoke.

2. Use caution with open flames

  • Only burn candles when you are in the room, and use sturdy candleholders.
  • Smoke outdoors only, and use deep, sturdy ashtrays. Make sure butts are cool before throwing them out.
  • Avoid any open flame where medical oxygen is being used.

3. Cook safely

  • Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove to prevent them from being knocked off.
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stove or broiling.
  • Keep a pot lid nearby while cooking. If a fire starts in a pan, you can slide the lid over and turn off the burner.

4. Heat your home safely

  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet from radiators, space heaters, fireplaces, woodstoves and furnaces.
  • Use a space heater with an automatic shutoff in case it tips over or overheats.
  • Turn off and unplug heaters when you leave your home or go to bed.
  • Make sure chimneys are cleaned professionally every year.

5. Plan your escape route

  • Know and practice two ways out of every room in your home.
  • Clear clutter that might block your escape route, and make sure all doors and windows open with ease.
  • Practice a fire escape drill at home at least twice a year.
  • If you use a wheelchair or envision having a problem escaping a fire, plan ahead and let your fire department and neighbors know.

6. Practice electrical safety

  • Have a licensed electrician check your electrical system if you frequently have blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.
  • Replace outlets if plugs don't fit snugly.
  • Don't overload electrical circuits, and avoid using extension cords. Have an electrician install additional outlets if needed.
  • Use light bulbs that match the recommended wattage on the light fixture.
  • Keep bathroom fans clean of lint and dust, which can cause the motor to overheat and ignite.

7. Sign up for emergency alerts

  • Sign up for alerts to receive calls or texts about impending storms or wildfires. Lightning can cause house fires.
  • In the event of a disaster, heed evacuation orders and advice of officials.

8. Protect yourself in case of fire

  • Stay calm, get out fast and stay outside the home.
  • Feel the doorknob and cracks around a door before opening. If you feel heat, don't open it. Closed doors prevent the spread of fire.
  • If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your exit.
  • If you can't get out, call 911. Stay where you are and signal for help with a flashlight or brightly colored object through a window.

Did You Know

2/11/2022 (Permalink)

Three out of five people who were injured during cooking fires were injured while trying to fight the fire themselves. Ranges or cook-tops are the most common equipment involved in home cooking fires. These account for 58 percent of fires. Ovens account for 16 percent. Microwave ovens are more dangerous than most folks think. They are one of the leading home products associated with scald burn injuries, accounting for 44 percent of the microwave injuries seen in emergency rooms in 2011. In the kitchen, it usually is not fires that burn young kids. More often, it is contact with a hot stove or pans or a scald from hot cooking liquids or steam. In fact, children under age 5 accounted for 55 percent of tableware scalds, 42 percent of contact burns from ranges or ovens, and 34 percent of microwave scalds in 2011.

  1. Cook only when you are alert -- not when you are exhausted, not when you have been drinking.
  2. Keep an eye on what you fry. If you must step away from the stove, turn it off.
  3. Keep things that can catch fire -- such as dish towels, potholders, and paper towels -- away from the stove. And avoid cooking in your bathrobe -- the loose sleeves can catch fire easily.
  4. Keep hot things away from the edges of tables and counters.
  5. Open microwaved food slowly and keep the food away from your face.
  6. Have a "kid-free" zone of at least three feet around the stove and anything hot -- and never hold your child while you are cooking or carrying something hot.
  7. Teach kids to stay away from the stove and hot foods.
  8. Keep pets off cooking surfaces.
  9. Install smoke alarms in the kitchen, outside each sleeping area, inside each bedroom, and on every level of your home (including the basement).

If you have a fire, just get outside, stay outside, and call the fire department.

Smoke Detection Systems

2/10/2022 (Permalink)

FIRE SAFETY

Most homeowners do not know that there are two types of smoke detectors on the market: ionization smoke detectors and photoelectric smoke detectors.

Ionization Smoke Detectors

This type of smoke detector uses ionized particles to detect the presence of smoke. Each ionization smoke detector holds a tiny amount of radioactive material, which is placed between two electrically charged plates. The reaction between these components causes the ionization of air. This in turn creates a current between the two plates.

When smoke gets into the detector, the current is disrupted, and the alarm is triggered. Ionization smoke detectors are known to work better with flaming fires—these are fires with aggressive, open flames. Their effectiveness with other types of fires, such as smoldering fires, is not as great. That is why we have another type of smoke detector.

Photoelectric Smoke Detectors

The second most popular type of smoke detectors are photoelectric detectors. Unlike ionization detectors, these detectors use a light source and a light sensor to detect smoke. The second most popular type of smoke detectors are photoelectric detectors. Unlike ionization detectors, these detectors use a light source and a light sensor to detect smoke.

Once the smoke enters the detection chamber, the smoke particles block the light beam and partially reflect light onto the sensors. This in turn trips the alarm. Since many smoldering fires fill the room with dangerous fumes and smoke way before progressing to the open-flame stage, these types of detectors tend to be better at early detection.

Different Power Supply Options

Now that we have covered the main types of smoke detectors, we need to touch upon different ways of supplying power to the detectors. There are two options, both of which work, but one of option is definitely a safer and more reliable choice.

Battery-Powered Detectors

Most detectors out there are powered by batteries. Since smoke detectors in general do not use a lot of power, many of these battery-powered models require very little maintenance on a yearly basis. However, every battery has a limit, and you do not want to find yourself in a fire with a dead smoke detector. There is nothing inherently wrong with battery-powered smoke detectors, but you must be vigilant about replacing spent batteries.

Hard-Wired Smoke Detectors

The alternative to battery-powered smoke detectors are hard-wired detectors. As their name implies, these detectors are wired straight into your home's electrical system. This method of supplying power to the entire network of smoke detectors is much more dependable and requires less maintenance.

Best of all, while these detectors still require batteries, batteries are not the primary power source. Rather, batteries function as the emergency power source to ensure you are still protected in the event of a power outage.

In Massachusetts, homes built between 1975 and 1998 must have hard-wired interconnected smoke detectors outside the bedrooms and one detector per floor.

How to Make the Most of Your Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors, no matter the type, are your first line of defense against fires. Despite that, many homeowners tend to neglect them. Just by regularly replacing the batteries in your smoke detectors, you are reducing your chances of becoming a victim of a house fire.

Fire Damage and its Effects.

9/1/2021 (Permalink)

A fire can lead to serious and significant property damage and any number of problems that will negatively impact your quality of life and cost you a lot of money until you get them repaired. Many people don’t realize the full extent or nature of fire damage or a large number of different services offered by SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County.  Fire damage can ruin walls, cabinets, counter tops and much more leaving them looking dilapidated and not fit to live in.

When it comes to repairing the obvious and immediate damage to your property, SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will  prioritize damage that could lead to further damage.

Kitchen Fires and Lingering Odor?

Ozone Machine Ozone Machine

The busiest part of the house is the kitchen and it can also be the most dangerous. Fire in the kitchen can be disastrous. Most of, if not all or your kitchen items will still have the lingering smell for a significant time after the fire. When the affected area is not cleaned correctly it may become permanent.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County does not recommend you attempt to clean fire damage yourself. Go through the proper channels to ensure everything is taken care of by professionals. After our technicians assess what has happened, there are a few steps SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County can take if your home suffers fire damage.  
SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County can use our "ozone machines" for such jobs.  
"Ozone machines" work by creating ozone (o3) via an electrical charge. Ozone is very unstable: o3 wanting to become o2. That third oxygen molecule is looking for something else to bond with. It bonds very well with the smoke, distorting the smoke molecule and neutralizing the smoke odor.

SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County  will plug the ozone machine into the wall, set the timer (12-24 hours depending on the extent of the smoke damage) and let it do its thing in your home. After the timer is up you need to let the ozone break down completely into regular o2. (I recommend a full 24 hours). The house will smell a little weird, kinda bleach-like. But that fades completely as the ozone breaks down. Ozone half life is less than half an hour, so giving a full 24 hours will ensure that everything is back to normal inside.

IMPORTANT: The only hard part about all this is that NOTHING alive may be in the house while you are ozoning. It is very, very harmful to breath the stuff in. No people, no plants, no pets... you have to clear everything alive out. Pack up the family and move in with a friend or into a hotel for about two days (one to ozone, one to clear the air of ozone). Once the o3 breaks down into o2 there is no harm.
