When an Emergency Strikes, These Dos and Don'ts May Help!

6/18/2019 (Permalink)

For a stress free claims process, SERVPRO can help manage the insurance paperwork and process. Call for details.

When disaster strikes, it may be hard to think straight. Not knowing who to call, what to do next or where to even go is overwhelming. Below is a list of some dos and don'ts that may be beneficial. If you are able to remember one or two, then that is a step closer in proper action until your SERVPRO of Chelmsford/Westford heroes can arrive.

  • Shut off the source of water if possible, or not conducting electricity. If you are unable to do this, contact the appropriate professional to help.
  • If you are safely able to reach the fuse box, shut off the breakers for the building. 
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping the area or blotting saturated areas.
  • Move valuables out of the affected area to dry places

Now for the don'ts....

  • If you know electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or equipment has been exposed to water, don't enter the room. These are potential shock hazards that could harm you. 
  • Using a vacuum to suck up water also creates a potential shock hazard. Just stay away!
  • To be on the safe side, stay away from any room that has lights affected, or anything electrical. Once water affects it, there is no saying if or when it is going to hurt or kill someone.

While your waiting for help to arrive, the biggest thing to remember is to stay safe. It is the most important factor in any disaster.

SERVPRO of Chelmsford/Westford is here to help you make it "Like it never even happened." Call today to see what we can do for you! Visit our website or call (978) 256-4225 for more information.

Hurricane safety tips for the New England Area

6/5/2019 (Permalink)

Photo credit Homesite Insurance


June 1st is the start of hurricane season for Massachusetts. Here are some tips to protect yourself from the storm:

1. Have a plan of action in place if a hurricane were to hit. Best place isn’t to be watching the storm but in your basement, bottom floor of a building or below stairs.
2. Stay indoors when storm warnings are in place
3. Check your emergency supplies. Make sure you have a 72 hour kit just in case you are stuck and can’t get out after the storm. First aid, blankets, food, flashlights, water are just a few necessities to have on hand.
4. Make sure your important documents are in a secure location.
5. Figure out an evacuation route.
6. Keep your cell phone charged.
7. Make sure your car has at least a 1/2 tank of gas. Having a gas can is good to have on hand too.

If you find yourself with damage or water left behind by the storm, call SERVPRO of Chelmsford Westford! We can help! 978-256-4225


If you follow out these steps your sure to stay safe if a hurricane was to arise. Happy summer!!!

Safety tips for electrical storms

6/5/2018 (Permalink)

30/30 rule

Storm season is coming. here are a few safety precautions to take this summer when being outdoors:

Lightning does not strike in the same place twice.
If you do get stuck in a lightning storm do not take shelter under a tree.
A good place to take shelter would be in your car. A car acts as a Faraday cage. Just make sure to close your windows.
Make sure to unplug your electronics. Or have them plugged into good quality serge protectors.
Other places to seek shelter would be Low ground trenches and ditches or you can find shelter in clumps of bushes or trees of uniform height.
Best bet is to avoid trees, open fields, high ground, and water!
Yes it’s true!! Counting between the lighten and thunder does tell you how far away the storm is!!
Do not talk on a hardwired telephone during a storm. Best bet would be a cell phone or cordless phone.
Odd fact: do not lie or rest on concrete floors or walls.
Stay away from widows and doors.
Avoid plumbing. So no showers or washing hands.
And don’t forget your 4 legged friends. Make sure they are indoors with you and not roaming around or chained to a tree.

Follow these simple steps this summer and you should remain safe from an electrical storm! Happy storm watching!
