Storm Gutter Cleaning Watch your gutters! Should disaster strike your home or business and is damaged by Jersey storms, call us at 732-577-1010.

The Jersey Shore often gets hit with heavy storms during the summer.  Our summer storms are normally include heavy rains, strong winds, flooding in low lying areas, and thunder and lighting.   We have shared many tips on preparing for storms, as well as what to do in the event a severe storm causes damage to your southern Monmouth County home or business.

Here is another valuable tip to avoid future damage, make sure your keep an eye on your gutters.  Gutters are often an afterthought in home maintenance. 

  1. Check your gutters for debris
    1. Get a sturdy ladder and secure it properly against your home
    2. If you find debris, start to clean it out
    3. Start at the end closest to the drain outlet and work your way across, loosening and clearing out debris in the gutter.
  2. Second, get your hose and wash out any leftover debris
    1. This time start from the end away from the drain outlet and work your way to the drain

Do this often and after storms.  Debris left in the gutters can cause backups, blockages, and can cause damage to your home.  A good way to check if your gutters need cleaning is spray water into the gutter to see if the water flows from the drain freely or it just trickles out.  If its flowing slowly or trickling, they probably need a cleaning.

Reed Diffuser There are lots of a great alternatives to lit candles. Should a candle start a disaster, the pros at SERVPRO are a phone call away at 732-577-1010!

Unattended candles are a huge fire risk. Candles can ignite nearby combustibles or be accidentally knocked over. Whether you are looking for flameless alternatives for a special occasion or everyday use, there are several safer options that still capture the desirable look or scent of your favorite candles. Here are four candle alternatives to consider for decorating or lighting purposes.

1. Battery-operated candles: Candles that run on batteries flicker like real candles and some are made of scented wax. Choose from a variety of different shapes and sizes, ranging from tea lights to pillars.

2. Christmas lights or fairy lights: Create enchanting effects indoors or outdoors with strings of lights. Consider LED lights if you want to make these lighting methods more efficient.

3. Candle warmers: Choose from electric bases or larger lamp-style models that are designed to accommodate traditional wax candles that you buy or make. In addition to these candle alternatives, you can also spread a fragrance with oil warmers or wax warmers.

4. Reed diffusers: Placing reeds in oil is an elegant air freshening solution that spreads a scent without the use of battery-operated and electrical devices or fire.

Candle fires are most common during the holiday season, starting in Halloween and going through New Year's Day celebrations. You may prefer to replace candles in decorations with newer flameless alternatives. Battery-operated candles can also make safer centerpieces or place-settings at a weddings or any other formal event. 

For day to day use, candle alternatives are perfect for places like bathrooms or bedrooms where they may be left unattended for long stretches of time. You should never leave a burning candle where you cannot observe it and ensure that a fire does not start.
