Lowell Community: Are you aware of the Wireless Emergency Alerts?

7/19/2019 (Permalink)

Lowell Residents:  

Learn how to be prepared and gain precious time when major weather events bear down on our area...especially if yo work outside the Lowell Community and plan to return home that evening...possibly picking up your children before returning home.  Please refer to the attached article from Mass.gov to help your planning!

Be Informed and Receive Emergency Alerts

Receive emergency alerts and weather warnings with Massachusetts Alerts, Wireless Emergency Alerts, Emergency Alert System and other systems.

Receiving advance warnings for severe weather, timely emergency alerts, and information during a disaster is critical to staying safe during an emergency. Every family should have multiple methods for receiving emergency alerts, including at least one with an audible alert to wake you in the middle of the night.

Massachusetts Alerts Smartphone App

The free Massachusetts Alerts app provides emergency notifications and public safety information from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service based on your location, proximity to an event or incident, and the preferences you select.

MEMA encourages all residents of the Commonwealth to download Massachusetts Alerts which is available for Android and iPhone devices.

Emergency Alert System (EAS)

The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a national warning system that uses radio, television, and satellite channels to broadcast important public safety information during times of emergency. When an EAS is issued, you will hear a tone followed by an audio message. Participating television broadcasters will also display a visual message, which might take the form of a scrolling banner or a static slide.

This system can be used by state authorities to deliver emergency information, such as America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response (AMBER) alerts and severe weather warnings.

MEMA, under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS), has the authority to activate EAS and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on behalf of the Governor of Massachusetts, Director of MEMA, Massachusetts State Police (MSP), and National Weather Service (NWS).

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)

The Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) program is part of the EAS national alerting initiative, which enables cellphones to receive alerts for severe weather emergencies, imminent threats to life or property, AMBER alerts, and Presidential alerts.

Most WEAs are issued by the National Weather Service (NWS). These alerts are only used for the most imminent and severe weather conditions, which includes tornadoes, flash floods, hurricanes, and tsunamis.

MEMA can also issue a WEA for other imminent threats that meet the requirements set forth by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that were designed to ensure that only the most urgent public-safety messages are sent as a WEA.

The alerts are delivered on technology that overrides any wireless network congestion and delays and allows the information to target cellphones within the impact area. A WEA alerts users with a special tone and vibration. If you receive a WEA, you should follow the protective actions advised in the message.

You do not need to subscribe to any service to receive alerts. The alerts are sent to all WEA-enabled devices in the impacted region. To find out whether you have a WEA-enabled phone, you should contact your mobile carrier.

More information about WEA (including links to cellphone carrier) is available on the CTIA website. For answers to frequently asked questions about this tool, see FEMA’s Ready.gov website, the FCC website, or the National Weather Service website.

NOAA Weather Radio

NOAA weather radio provides alerts for weather warnings in your area. With batteries, a radio can work even when the power is out and can be programmed to provide alerts within your local area. Weather radios are a reliable source for severe weather announcements or weather-related emergency information. 

Social Media & Traditional Media

MEMA uses Twitter (@MassEMA) and Facebook to provide preparedness tips as well as information about severe weather, emergency situations, and disasters. MEMA also uses social media as a secondary method of alerting.

Traditional local media outlets (such as TV and radio stations) are another source for emergency alerts and information.

2-1-1 Hotline

2-1-1 is the Commonwealth’s primary telephone information call center. Call 2-1-1 for information about the location of open shelters, transportation or other restrictions due to a declared state of emergency, post disaster assistance, ways to volunteer or donate, or other services you or your family may need. Mass 2-1-1 is a 24/7 resource to connect callers to information about critical health and human services programs.

Local Notification Systems

MEMA urges residents to contact their local Emergency Management Director to find out whether their community uses its own alert and warning system, such as Reverse 911 or Code Red for important local information. Your local official will be able to direct you how to enroll in these notification systems.
Residents can also check if their local public safety agencies (police, fire, emergency management) have social media accounts and if so follow them for local emergency information.

Other Systems

  • Outdoor sirens, which are used to alert residents within the nuclear emergency planning zones (EPZs) for Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station and Seabrook Station of any nuclear related incidents.
  • A teletypewriter (TTY) device, which allows individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired use the telephone to communicate.
  • U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Broadcasts are used for maritime weather and safety broadcasts.
  • MassDOT variable message boards and private sector digital billboards can be used to provide information during emergencies.

Understand the Differences Between Weather Alerts

The National Weather Service issues watches and warnings to alert the public of potentially dangerous weather. It is important to understand the difference between watches and warnings so you know what to do to stay safe.

  • watch means that the weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather. If a watch is issued, then you should be alert to changing weather conditions.
  • warning means that severe weather is already occurring, or is likely to occur, and that you should take protective actions to stay safe.

Prepare for All Types of Hazards

Do you know how to handle asbestos during your cleanup? SERVPRO of Lowell does!

7/18/2019 (Permalink)

We encounter many a homeowner trying to dry up their basements after a water event. Usually, the water emergency that a homeowner clean up themselves

We encounter many a homeowner trying to dry up their basements after a water event.  Usually, the water emergency that a homeowner clean up themselves turns into a mold call when it is discovered a few weeks to months later.  When materials become wet, we adhere to IIRC standards of drying, and the MA DEP protocol for asbestos!

https://www.mass.gov/guides/massdep-asbestos-construction-demolition-notifications#asbestos-health

The link for the entire article is above for your reference!

Asbestos is a naturally occurring, mostly fibrous mineral that has been used in a variety of building products and industrial settings over the years because of its resistance to heat, fire, and many caustic chemicals.

The physical properties that give asbestos its resistance to heat and decay are also linked with a number of adverse human health effects. Asbestos tends to break apart into a dust of microscopic fibers that remain suspended in the air for a long time. When inhaled, these fibers can cause:

  • Asbestosis, a chronic lung condition that makes breathing progressively more difficult.
  • Cancer, most frequently of the lungs.
  • Mesothelioma, an incurable cancer of the chest and abdominal membranes.

Symptoms can take up to 40 years to develop, all can lead to death, and each exposure increases your risk.

Although seldom used in construction since the late 1980s, building materials that contain asbestos are still legal to sell. They can be found in structures of all ages in various forms: decorative plasters, fireproofing, resilient flooring, heating system insulation, wallboard joint compound systems, mastics, roofing, exterior siding, and more.

  • Make sure your dryer is cleaned regularly
  • After each load of laundry is done make sure the lint is taken out from the previous load.

Other Sources of Heating

Are you MORE than ready for Summer?

6/6/2019 (Permalink)

Enjoy your Summer safely! When using a firepit, a cover is always a good idea!

Enjoy Summer Safely!

Bar B Q Fire Safety

I am ready to grill and enjoy the tastes of summer! Please keep these safety tips in mind when grilling.

  • Keep a 3 foot area clear on all sides of the grill...kids and pets, too!
  • Locate the grill away from the house or any building, including anything hanging above it!
  • Do not use under trees or shrubbery.
  • Do not forget to clean the grease drippings and the grill itself, often.
  • When disposing of any coals, please make sure you use a metal container and a lid, without anything piled on top of the lid!

Don't you just love a fire pit?

  • Make sure your fire pit has a cover. It may be needed to extinguish the fire quickly and easily in the event of an emergency.
  • Look around the fire pit before lighting it.  Make sure there is nothing easily flammable near it...piles of dried leaves, firewood, tiki torches and/or their fluid.
  • Watch out for what you are adding to your fire pit.  Leaves, paper,magazines or cardboard can separate and send large fire filled pieces into the air, causing a fire elsewhere!
  • Always be bear your lighted fire pit.
  • Not a bad idea to have a fire exteiguisher and/or a hose with the water turned on, handy.

Enjoy your outside time this summer and stay safe!

Why Clean Duct Work? Not only because they get dirty!

10/29/2018 (Permalink)

In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all office space with air ducts, there are several other factors that can increase the need for regular HVAC system cleaning:

  • occupants with allergies or asthma
  • cigarette or cigar smoke
  • water contamination or damage to the building or HVAC system
  • renovations or remodeling projectsTop Benefits of HVAC CleaningIndoor Air QualityThrough normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. 
  • Contact SERVPRO of Lowell 978-454-7577
  • While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
  • Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out.
  • NADCA’s rule of thumb for consumers is that “if your air ducts look dirty, they probably are,” and that dirty HVAC systems should be inspected by a reputable, certified HVAC professional. Below are some other reasons homeowners choose to have their air ducts cleaned.
  • Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.

5 Benefits of Duct Cleaning

10/22/2018 (Permalink)

Typical Residential Heating/Cooling System

5 Benefits Of Air Duct Cleaning You Should Know:

  1. Air Duct Cleaning Improves Indoor Air Quality:

Contaminants, pollutants, allergens, and mold tend to settle along air vents and ductwork as they are transported through the ventilation system and air ducts. Even though most ductwork systems have air filters as well, not all these contaminants may be contained by the filters. Regular cleaning of air ducts has been seen to improve indoor quality as it improves airflow and reduces the amount of debris within the ductwork that could be transported into indoor environments through the air.

  1. Air Duct Cleaning Reduces Air Pollution Hazards and Promote Indoor Health:

Kitchen fumes, tobacco smoke, radon, and mold are some of the most common indoor pollutants, which can intensify the more when combined with higher humidity. Dust particles, mold spores, viruses, and allergens carried through the air from the air ducts can make the matter even worse. By cleaning your home’s air ducts, you actually reduce the chances of indoor pollution by a great degree and promote health, since the duct cleaning process gets rid of most pollutants and contaminants, thus making the air breathed fresher and less contaminated with allergens.

  1. Increases Indoor Comfort:

Clogged or dirty air ducts can affect your HVAC system’s performance. However, air duct cleaning gets rid of clogged debris and improves air flow, which can actually increase the effectiveness of the system. Consequently, this increases indoor comfort as far as heating, cooling, and air conditioning is concerned.

  • Can Reduce Air Conditioning Costs:
    1. As the ducts are cleaned and less clogged, the heating and air conditioning system will struggle less to deliver the desired temperatures inside your home. This could mean less consumption of energy, especially since airflow is improved during the air duct cleaning process. in other words, ductwork cleaning can boost energy efficiency, improve [performance, and reduce conditioning costs since the lesser you HVAC unit struggles, the less likely it is to break down, which also means lower HVAC repair costs during its lifetime.
  • Boosts the Longevity of Your HVAC System:There are various signs that can help determine if it’s time to get air duct cleaning service according to    NADCA. which recommends that the process should be more frequent for people with pets at home, smoke indoors, or have a family member with seasonal allergy problems.
  1. When a heating and cooling system experiences a problem in terms of air flow, it tends work harder in order to perform as it is required or deliver the preferred temperature conditions. This obviously has an effect on its functionality and durability as the rate of wear and tear is increased. One of the technicians I spoke with at a company that provides air duct cleaning service in Denver confirmed that a thorough duct cleaning can improve an HVAC system’s life expectancy since it helps restore smooth airflow through the HVAC system, and reduces the stress load on the heating and air conditioning equipment.

running out of time with a clock Get Ready To Turn Back Time!

SERVPRO of Lowell reminds you to turn back your clocks on Nov. 3rd , 2019 and take notice to the following;

  • Check and replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. Ensure they are working properly and replace the batteries. As the cold sets in and many start up their gas-fired furnaces, fireplaces, portable unit heaters and the like for the first time, carbon monoxide poisoning risks increase dramatically during this time of year. Replace any smoke alarm unit that is older than 10 years. Replace any CO alarm unit that is older than 5 years.
  • Prepare a winter emergency kit for your automobile. Such kits can be a lifesaver if you are stuck out in bad weather while driving. They should include items such as: warm clothes, blanket, flashlight, batteries, water, non-perishable snacks, shovel, flares, reflective hazard triangle, jumper cables, cat litter or sand for traction, ski hat and gloves.
  • Check to see if your fire extinguishers need recharging. Check the small gauge at the top of the extinguisher. If the needle in that gauge is in the green, chances are, the extinguisher is okay. If it is in the red, you need to have the extinguisher replaced or recharged.

Commercial Fire in Lowell

10/22/2018 (Permalink)

A building on fire with fire trucks Warehouse Fire in Lowell

Most common causes of commercial fires and how to safeguard against them: 1. Cooking Cooking is the most common cause of both residential and commercial fires. In the commercial arena, we tend to associate cooking fires with restaurants, but the problem extends to office kitchens as well. Treat all kitchens the same, wherever they are. All kitchen should have a smoke detector, a well-conditioned fire extinguisher and strict safety protocols, including no unmanned appliances. 2. Electrical When it comes to electrical fires, the problem is twofold: user error and electrical system malfunctions. In the realm of user error, the big issues are frayed power cords, misused extension cords and overloaded and daisy-chained surge protectors. When it comes to a system malfunction, the biggest problem is faulty wiring, which is why it’s essential that all commercial buildings have their electrical systems regularly serviced by a professional. 3. Heating Fires caused by heating are similar to those caused by electrical factors in that they’re caused by both user error and system malfunction. The most common form of user error is misuse of space heaters. Commercial spaces often have cold spots, and space heaters are a great way to alleviate that. Space heaters are also quite dangerous if users don’t respect a three-foot or greater safety zone around the unit. As for system malfunctions, fires often occur due to dust buildup and ventilation blockage, so be sure to have your heating system checked regularly. 4. Arson Arson is much more common than you might realize. Although it often occurs at abandoned commercial structures, arson fires that occur at occupied buildings can be devastating. In addition to monitored fire detection and fire suppression measures, security cameras are an essential defense. 5. Smoking Smoking was once a leading cause of commercial fires. Even in smoke-free buildings however, cigarettes can and do lead to fire. Prevention starts with commercial alarm monitoring, but it also requires proper receptacles and fire-retardant furniture. 6. Combustibles Most commercial buildings, including basic offices, must have combustible materials on hand. The real danger with such materials comes when they’re stored improperly, and this is a common occurrence because the materials are often being managed by people who aren’t trained in proper use. Therefore, it’s crucial to have safe storage space available, but it’s also essential that the business trains employees in the use of such materials and continues to refresh that education. Commercial Safety When it comes to fire and other risks to a commercial enterprise, it’s best to be proactive. Contact a security company that specializes in commercial security systems. They can help you identify risk factors in your place of business and make recommendations to help protect your enterprise against fire-related catastrophes.

Does Your Lowell property have a mold problem?

6/10/2018 (Permalink)

Within 48 hours Mold can spread throughout your property.

Mold remediation reduces spore counts back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • 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 AC/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 or high humidity. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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.

If your property has a mold problem, one of our project managers can conduct a site inspection to assess your property. Our specialized training, equipment, and expertise will properly remediate your mold infestation.

Lingering Hidden smoke/soot odor

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your property, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  As seen in this photo the Drywall was opened to expose the smoke and soot damage in the wall cavity. Contact your locally owned nationally known restoration company SERVPRO of Lowell

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Lowell will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your tenants with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Inspection Tools

Thermal Inspection

One of the greatest assets to our arsenal of inspection tools is the Flir thermal camera.

During the initial loss inspection we utilize the Flir thermal imaging camera to identify the amount of damage to the plaster board. Since we’re able to quickly identify the amount of water wicking in the plaster board we can reduce amount of demolition required to the affected walls. (Asbestos testing is required prior to removal of the affected materials under Mass DEP asbestos regulations at 310 CMR 7.15).Reducing the amount of demolition also reduces the cost of the repairs which allows the business to return normal operating hours sooner.  

Our image shows a water line approx. 6’’ above the floor. This water is contaminated (a sewer damage) the wall will was removed 2’ above the floor.

SERVPRO of Lowell knows how to proceed if mold grows in your property.

There are approximately 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any property, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Any water leaks, damp basements, whole house humidifiers to name a few examples of issues that make a property prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your property, call SERVPRO of Lowell to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.
