This Week Is Hurricane Preparedness Week In Peoria

Storm Damage This Week Is Hurricane Preparedness Week In Peoria Hurricanes Can Be Deadly!

Hurricane Preparedness Week

Even though we rarely have to worry about Hurricanes, many of our resident's vacation in areas where there are significant threats.

From the desk of the Community Risk Reduction Officer for our local Fire Dept:

During Hurricane Preparedness Week, make sure you have a hurricane evacuation plan.

The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you're in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane.

If you are, figure out where you'd go and how you'd get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn't live an evacuation zone or unsafe home, and coordinate with them to use their home as your evacuation destination.

Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them.

Find evacuation zones here: http://flash.org/hurricane-season/evacuation-zones/find-your-evacuation-zones.pdf.

And as always SERVPRO is here for you when the storm is over to help put your life back together!

Fire Clean Up In Peoria

Fire Damage Fire Clean Up In Peoria During A Fire, Stay Low For As Long As You Can!

Get low and crawl under the smoke to get out safely!

We asked the local Fire Department for some fire safety tips and ways to prevent extra harm from fires. The tip about getting low and crawling out of a home or building seems a little bit drastic or unnecessary until you start breathing in the smoke.

So many of the victims that deadly fires have consumed have passed out from breathing too much smoke, getting low gives someone a fighting chance to exit the building because smoke and heat rises.

So please if you are caught in a fire and you can make your way out, make sure you stay low and yes even crawl. It could be the difference between your life and your death.

You get out, we'll clean up!

If you have had fire damage in the Peoria area that needs to be cleaned up call SERVPRO to help put your life back together.

Mold Remediation Reducing Your Exposure to Mold In Peoria Let SERVPRO Fix Your Mold Problem

Mold and mildew are common nuisances in our Peoria community.

However, you can greatly reduce the risk of infestation in your home or office. It’s worthwhile to consider because reducing exposure to mold in Peoria is important for both you and your home’s health and well-being. 


Mold spores in the home environment have been known to cause adverse health effects. In addition, mold colonies can cause unsightly damage to your home, like staining of furniture and carpeting. On top of that, mold can weaken the walls and foundation of your home, leading to structural deterioration.

While completely eradicating mold spores in your home environment is not possible, you can lessen the chance of mold infestation in your home.

Reduce your exposure to mold by following these helpful tips from the remediation experts at your local SERVPRO:


1. Repair leaks quickly and thoroughly. 
2. Use a dehumidifier when water is present. 
3. Use cleansers that kill mold and mildew. 

If you find that mold or mildew grows inside your home or office, it could be signs of a more serious problem.
