Building a Fortified Home Along the Gulf Coast

Building a Fortified Home 

Building a new home can be a big undertaking.  There are so many variables to consider and if you have never built a home before, you may not know where to start.  One of the first things that you may want to consider is what level of fortification you want to include in your home to protect it from catastrophic events.  Living here along the Gulf Coast, we know that hurricanes are an unavoidable peril.  How your home is constructed may mean the difference between minor damage and complete devastation.  There are now universal building codes that may make your home more resilient in the face of a storm.  You may even receive discounts on your homeowner’s insurance based on which construction standard you choose for your new home. Building codes may vary from state to state and this can lead to inconsistencies in the ability of a structure to bear the force of a major storm.  In 2010, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) developed the FORTIFIED Home to create a uniform, hazard specific standard to alleviate these discrepancies and make new homes more resistant to severe weather.  The program includes three levels for homeowners to choose from based on their needs.  The Gold standard ties the entire house together by tying the roof to the walls, the walls to the floor and the floor to the foundation.  This means the entire structure functions as one seamless system.  Silver requires additional fortification to the roofing system and the windows.  The Bronze level addresses only the roof.  At SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile, we have seen first hand the devastation that a natural disaster can bring with it.  If you are building a home, we would encourage you to do your research and make sure your home has the most protection possible.  You can’t predict the future, but you can be ready!  If you want to learn more about the FORTIFIED Home, CLICK HERE To visit the IBHS website.

Are you Covered?

Storm Damage Are you Covered? Homeowners insurance and SERVPRO

Are You Covered? 

When it comes to your homeowner’s insurance policy sometimes it is hard to know exactly what to look for when checking your coverage.  Many times, the average consumer doesn’t consider all the variables and the multitude of “what if’s” that could occur and cause damage to their home.  SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile wants to help you make sure you are covered BEFORE disaster strikes.  One of the most common areas of gaps in coverage can occur in water loss situations.  An overwhelming majority of policies do not provide coverage for flood damage that is incurred from “rising water”.   This term is how most insurance companies will differentiate whether water damage is covered under the policy.  Rising water would be determined to be flood damage and most often only covered if you bought an additional flood policy.  Other water damage that would be covered would be water that filled the home as the result of a collapsed roof, broken windows etc.  If you aren’t sure of what your homeowner’s policy covers, we strongly encourage you to contact your agent to day and ask questions.

Dryer Vent Cleaning with SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile

Dryer Vent Cleaning (Commercial)

You do everything you can to prevent a fire in your business.  You have developed emergency plans, installed sprinklers, developed protocols for electrical and cooking systems, but what about your dryer vents? As a premier provider of commercial fire restoration services, SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile has seen fires from a wide range of sources.  Fires caused from clogged dryer vents are more common than you may think.  Especially in commercial buildings that use dryers on a regular basis.  How do clogged dryer vents cause fires?  The lint trapped in vents can cause limited air flow, making the dryer work harder than usual.  This causes the dryer to get hotter than usual, which makes it overheat and catch fire.  The good news is that annual dryer vent cleanings can prevent this from occurring.  If you haven’t cleaned your dryer vents recently contact SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile at 251-343-0534.  We can set up a cleaning and put you on a preventative maintenance schedule that will protect you and your business.
