Fall is here! SERVPRO of Augusta/Waterville wants you to stay warm and stay safe!
It's getting chilly outside! The leaves are changing colors and our outside attire includes vests and coats.
With the cooler temperatures this week, many Mainers are finding it's time to fire up the furnace!
Furnace maintenance is one of those things that often gets forgotten, but it is one of the most important things you can do as a homeowner for the safety of your property and your family. Not only is an improperly working furnace costly, but it can be quite dangerous.
According to the NFPA 27% of house fires between 2012 and 2016 were caused by improperly cleaned furnaces, pellet stoves and chimneys. 54% of those fires ended in a loss of life with an average of 490 people a year. Fires are not always an avoidable thing, but properly maintaining your heating methods can help.
Space heaters are also a large component in heating related fires. It is best to become informed on proper use and wattages.
Even with proper use and maintenance, fires can happen. From small electrical fires to entire house fires we are here to help. Our trained technicians have the unique ability to remove soot, odor and sometimes even charring from contents and structures. With treatment and our tested products we will help you get your home back, ”Like it never even happened."
You can reach us at our SERVPRO of Augusta/Waterville location, conveniently located at 7 Townsend Road, or give us a call at (207) 622-7166. We are here to help 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.
