If you don’t have smoke alarms, be sure to get them installed. If you have fire alarms check the batteries to make sure they are working.

With springtime finally among us, so are the rain and thunderstorms that come with it! Although thunderstorms are kind of rare in New England, they do still happen! Springtime temps as we know can range to very chilly one moment and the next it could be 60°!

Moisture is needed to form clouds and the rain, unstable air is needed to be warm-ish and rapidly rising. And “lift” can form from sea breezes or mountains!

Be prepared! 

Since spring weather is so unpredictable, it’s important for you to have some type of kit prepared in advance. Planning ahead makes it easier for you and your family in case of an emergency.

Your storm preparedness kit should include:

What electric items can cause a fire to your Blackstone, MA home

1/21/2022 (Permalink)

We love our technology but having many electrical items may even cause a fire.  Electrical fires involve electrical failures or malfunctions when least expected. 

  • Space heaters

Many people have a space heater they use in their homes. Be conscious of where you place your space heater and watch its surroundings, also make sure the cord isn't plugged into a cord strip as well. 

  • Cords and Electrical circuit overloads

The most common one is cords and electrical circuit overloads. It is common to have many cord strips around the house and most of those cord strips have all 5-6 outlets with a cord plugged into them. This is why it is important to make the effort to never overload your outlets.

  • Light fixture

Another cause is lighting fixtures, both caused by the light bulb or by items near the light fixture. One thing that causes light bulb fires is when you install the wrong light bulb or watt size. The other cause is when putting materials such as fabrics or cloth near a lamp causing overheating.

12/22/2021 (Permalink)

Snow is a beautiful thing to watch fall but large amounts of snow can be dangerous to one's property. Like any natural weather situation, you should always be prepared for any snow storm damage that could happen. Here are 5 tips and tricks to keep your house safe during a snowstorm:

  1. Keep your exterior vents clear of snow and ice to avoid your furnace from overheating and shutting off. 
  2. Keep your roof clear of snow to avoid a roof cave from heavy snowfalls. (Tip to remove it is to buy a roof snow rake)
  3. Keep a snow shovel or snow blower to clear out your driveway and walkway paths to make a safe entrance out of your house.
  4. If your power goes out and the heating stops working be careful of your pipes from freezing.
