Storm Damaged Homes in Pembroke Pines?

A backyard fence is blown over by a hurricane. We are leaders in storm damage restoration in Broward County.

Last month Hurricane Ian wreaked havoc on many parts of Florida, including Pembroke Pines, and power outages and property damage occurred in many areas of the city. Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams were on call 24-hours a day to respond to storm damage emergencies in the city.

Here is some information about tropical storm watches and warnings from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:

Tropical Storm Watch: An announcement that tropical storm conditions (sustained winds of 39 to 73 miles per hour) are possible within the specified coastal area within 48 hours.

Tropical Storm Warning: An announcement that tropical storm conditions (sustained winds of 39 to 73 miles per hour) are expected somewhere within the specified coastal area within 36 hours.

Hurricane Watch: An announcement that hurricane conditions (sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher) are possible within the specified coastal area. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the hurricane watch is issued 48 hours before the anticipated onset of tropical-storm-force winds.

Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property to assess the damage. When we arrive, we will inspect the damaged area to determine the best plan of action. Here is some information from our website that describes the steps we take during this phase of the restoration:

  • Category 1: "Clean Water"

Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises

We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident.

A satellite view of a hurricane approaching Florida is seen. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Broward County.

Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams respond to storm damage every year. Hurricane Ian brought hurricane-strength winds, wind gusts, and heavy rain to Pembroke Pines last month. Here are some tips from the Broward County website on developing a hurricane plan:

How Can I Avoid a Cooking Fire in my Pembroke Pines Home?

10/24/2022 (Permalink)

A person is cooking in a kitchen. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Broward County.

Our Pembroke Pines and West Miramar team responds to fire damage emergencies every year in Pembroke Pines. Earlier this month, the City of Pembroke Pines Fire Department held Fire Prevention Week. The theme was “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen.”

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), cooking is the country’s leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries. Almost half of the reported home fires start in the kitchen, and two-thirds of home cooking fires start with the ignition of food or other cooking materials. Due to COVID-19, people are cooking at home more than ever before.

Here are some cooking safety tips from the NFPA:

  • Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, boiling, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for a short time, turn off the stove.
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking
  • Keep anything that can catch fire (oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, or curtains) away from your stovetop

Halloween Safety Tips for Pembroke Pines Trick-or-Treaters?

10/11/2022 (Permalink)

A Halloween display is decorated with skeletons and candles. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Broward County.

Our Pembroke Pines and West Miramar team wants everyone to have a safe and fire-damage-free Halloween this year. Here are some safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.
  • When using electrical lighting to decorate your home, ensure it is used per the manufacturer’s instructions. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
  • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. Make sure all smoke alarms are working.

For families still planning to attend Halloween parties or go trick-or-treating:

  • When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing fabric that could come in contact with open flames or other heat sources
  • Teach children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costumes
