Water damage is one of the most common and costly disasters affecting American residences, accounting for billions of dollars in losses to homeowners and renters annually. However, consumers can protect themselves with the right amount and type of insurance coverage. The bellow guidelines will be helpful you to protect your Connecticut property from water damage.

  • Inspect hoses and faucets. Check hoses leading to water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and refrigerator ice makers annually. Replace those with cracks or leaks, and replace them all every five to seven years.
  • Inspect showers and tubs. Check the seal and caulking around showers and tubs to make sure they are watertight.
  • Shut off the water supply to the washing machine while away on vacation, and never leave the house while the washer or dishwasher is running.
  • Know the location of the main water shut off valve in your home. A damaged hose or a burst pipe can send water racing into your home. By knowing where this valve is located and how to shut off the main water supply, you can save yourself time and money.
  • Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system. This will protect against the increased pressure caused by freezing pipes and can help prevent your pipes from bursting.
  • Check pipes. Look closely for cracks and leaks and have the pipes repaired immediately.

However, consumers can protect themselves with the right amount and type of insurance coverage. The guideline below will be helpful to protect your Meriden, Connecticut property from water damage.

  • Caulk and seal windows. Preventive maintenance will guard against water seepage.
  • Inspect your roof. Look for missing, damaged, and aging shingles.
  • Check your downspouts. Remove debris that may have accumulated in downspouts and rain gutters. Position downspouts so that they direct water away from the house.
  • Check sprinklers and irrigations systems. Be sure sprinklers and irrigation systems are not damaging the walls and foundations of the house; turn off and drain outside faucets to protect against frozen pipes.

Summer Fire Safety - Campfire Safety Tips

Fire Damage Summer Fire Safety - Campfire Safety Tips Summer Fire Safety - Campfire Safety Tips

If you'll be spending the summer camping or just toasting marshmallows in the back yard, it's a good idea to educate yourself about campfire safety.

Every year people look forward to summer vacations, camping, family reunions, picnics, and the 4th of July. However, injuries increase in the summertime due to fireworks and outdoor cooking. We encourage summer fire safety in your community with these tips…

  • Always follow the campfire rules for the area where you are camping or living. Some parks and towns prohibit fires, and these rules are there for a reason. Check the local regulations before you build your fire.
  • It is important to make sure that all members of your family know to "Stop, Drop, and Roll" if an article of clothing ever catches on fire. Instead of just talking about it to young children, practice the steps to become familiar with them together.
  • Choose a location for your campfire where it will not spread. Never build a campfire near any dry leaves, grassy areas or under overhanging tree branches. Before building a campfire, clear away all shrubbery and vegetation from the area, dig a pit for the fire, and surround it with rocks.
  • Do not store gasoline, liquid fire starter, or any other type of flammable liquid near the campfire. It's too easy for stray flames to ignite these materials. Always keep away from children.
  • Do not place your campfire near the tent. It should always be placed downwind from the tent. Only use tents made from flame-retardant materials if you'll be having a campfire.
  • Do not build large campfires, even if they seem impressive. It's much safer to keep fires small so they are easier to control.
  • Never leave a campfire lit if there is no one to attend to it. If you're going to sleep for the night, always take the time to put the fire out first.
  • Never light a campfire if you do not have the means of extinguishing it. Always keep plenty of water and a shovel near the campfire to use in an emergency and put the campfire out when you are finished using it.
  • To extinguish a campfire douse it with water, use the shovel to bury the fire with ash and dirt. Then douse the area with water.

How to deal with water or flood damage?

Water Damage How to deal with water or flood damage? How to deal with water or flood damage?

Water may be essential to human life, but it can spell death for a home. Water damage can cause all sorts of headache for homeowners, both immediately after the damage occurs and in the long run. From floods to leaky faucets, water damage is a serious pain, and can cause major health and safety issues. This highly contaminated water can carry pathogens, silt, pesticides, chemicals, and dangerous debris like broken glass and tree limbs. SERVPRO of Meriden has IICRC trained technicians that have certifications in ASD, Applied Structural Drying, and AMR, Applied Microbial Remediation to combat the ramifications of contaminated groundwater or sewage. Follow this guide to stop, repair, and prevent water damage in your home 

  • Contact your insurance company immediately. Inquire about policy coverage and specific filing requirements. This gets the ball rolling on the claim process.
  • Know the difference between flood insurance and homeowners insurance. Flood damage is typically caused by water that has been on the ground before damaging your home. Water damage occurs when water damages your home before the water comes in contact with the ground (broken pipes, a leaky roof, etc.). These claims would be covered by homeowners insurance.
  • Do what you can to start mitigating further damage. If you’re worried about wet carpets or rugs, get fans and dehumidifiers going. Talk to an expert to see if the carpet/rugs or furnishings can be salvaged.
  • Document the damage to your property. Take pictures or video if possible.

What should you think before hiring a contractor?

Storm Damage What should you think before hiring a contractor? What should you think before hiring a contractor?

It’s the contractor you pick that makes — or breaks — your remodeling project. Finding the right contractor for your job will determine the quality and timeliness of the work, and the amount of emotional and financial stress you’ll have to deal with. To make sure you’re getting the best work from a contractor, here are few guidelines.

  • Check work history and references. Ask for a list of references to determine if the contractor is familiar with your type of project. A contractor should be able to give you names and phone numbers of at least three clients with projects like yours. Ask each client how long ago the project was and whether it was completed on time.
  • Find out if the contractor is insured. Ask for copies of insurance certificates and make sure they’re current, or you could be held liable for any injuries and damages that occur during the project. The Federal Trade Commission recommends contractors have personal liability, worker’s compensation and property damage coverage.
  • Prepare a written contract agreement with anyone you hire. It should specify the work to be done, techniques to be used, and the price breakdown for both labor and materials. An agreed-upon timeline is also a good idea.
  • Never pay in full for all repairs in advance, and do not pay cash.
  • Don’t be pressured into making an immediate decision with a long-term impact. Although you may be anxious to get things back to normal, avoid letting your emotions get the better of you. Make temporary repairs if needed. Storm/flood damage victims should never feel pressured to make a hasty decision or choose an unknown company. Always do your research!
