  • Working smoke alarms are in every sleeping room and outside every room
  • Portable fire extinguishers are in the home and are easy to reach
  • Working carbon monoxide alarms are outside each separate sleeping area
  • The owner has posted a floor plan. It notes all escape routes and exits and provides emergency contact information.

  • Everyone staying in the home knows two ways out of every room and how to escape in an emergency
  • All doors and windows that lead outside can be opened
  • An outside meeting place has been chosen a safe distance away from the home
  • Everyone knows how to call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number from a cell phone from outside

Wind-Damaged Homes in the Lakewood Area?

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

A wooden garden fence is destroyed by strong winds. We have over forty years of experience restoring storm damage in Jefferson County!

Our Lakewood and Ken Caryl teams get called to repair storm damage throughout the year. Strong winds can damage roofs, patios, and anything not tied down or secured can become a flying projectile. Here are some tips for protecting your property from wind damage from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

Secure Fencing, Porches, Canopies, and Sheds

Have them inspected and make sure they are firmly attached and in sound structural condition. Secure any parts of fencing that appear weak or loose.

Anchor Any Fuel Tanks and External Utility Links

If you have an exterior fuel tank or any utilities located outside, anchor or tie them down according to the ground anchor instructions. This will help reduce the risk of them overturning and sliding.

Replace Gravel and Rock Landscaping Materials

Rock and gravel materials can cause serious damage during a severe wind event. Gravel has been found in mailboxes during very strong wind events and has even shredded vinyl siding. Replace these materials with a softer material, such as mulch or dirt.

A person is replacing the battery in a smoke detector. We clean and restore fire damage in Jefferson County.

Our Lakewood and Ken Caryl team have been restoring fire damage in Ken Caryl for over forty years. We witness the difference working smoke alarms make. Working smoke alarms give early warnings so you can get outside quickly. Here are some smoke alarm safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • A closed-door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years

Why Do I Have Mold Growing in My Lakewood Home?

3/21/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is growing on a wall in a kitchen. We remediate mold problems in Jefferson County.

When you discover mold growing in your Lakewood home, it is an indication that there is excess moisture somewhere in the structure. If you have had any water intrusion issues or leaks, you may have mold hiding inside your walls.

Our Lakewood and Ken Caryl team have the certification, equipment, and experience to mitigate and restore mold damage. We follow all local and state laws and will advise you on the process based on your unique situation. Here is some information from our website about mold:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Mold colonies may produce health effects in certain individuals
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent
