electrician powerlinesThe most common cause of power outages is weather-related. In Massachusetts and Rhode Island, this can happen any time of year. Home and business owners can face a Nor'easter with heavy, wet snow and strong winds in the winter or a severe thunderstorm with lightning and high winds in the summer. Both scenarios can cause significant damage, with downed tree limbs and power lines. Often times, power is restored within a few hours. But are you prepared to weather a power outage for longer? Don't let the next outage keep you in the dark. Stay safe with these expert tips.

The homeowner trusted the experts at ServiceMaster Dynamic Cleaning to perform professional water mitigation services. The bathroom, office, and bedrooms were affected by water damage to the walls, ceilings, and floors. Residents of the property noticed the paint on the ceiling and walls was peeling and bubbling, a common sign of water damage.

Additionally, the ceiling developed staining and water spots. The leak had gone unnoticed for some time. Unfortunately, even behind the walls mold can begin to grow within as little as 24 hours if not mitigated properly. Our technicians are specially trained to handle and treat for mold damage after a water loss. Once the walls were opened up and the wet insulation was removed, we properly treat and sanitize the affected areas. If not addressed, mold damage can lead to health issues and structural damage to the home.  

Our technicians quickly got to work extracting water and drying the structure. The roof leak demanded a thorough cleaning of several rooms. Water mitigation included removal of waterlogged building materials, HEPA vacuuming of finite particles and sanitization to prevent mold growth. Drying equipment of air movers and dehumidifiers were used to get the home back to pre-loss condition. 

document signatureThe Insurance Information Institute (iii.org) states that 63% of renters do not have renters insurance. Renters insurance covers your personal property in the event of a disaster. Many tenants believe that their landlord's insurance policy will cover the damage to their belongings. Unfortunately, this is not the case. A landlord's insurance will only pay to repair the building itself, not the renter's things. For example, if a pipe breaks under the sink and floods the kitchen, your landlord would be responsible for repairing the pipe and any damage to the structure. As a tenant, you would be responsible for replacing your personal property.
