Our employees have years of experience, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform.

Storm cloud and lightning. “In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.” - Mark Twain

Spring storms can be unpredictable. In the spring there are days in which we are closer to summer and other days where it snows! The changing weather during the spring can cause potential hazards that can be hard to predict/plan for since the weather can change rapidly, leading to the experience of many seasons in the same day! Mark Twain once said, “In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.” 

Thunderstorms pose the most serious weather related threat during the spring. Thunderstorms develop when warm moist air collides with cool, dry air.  Some of the dangers associated with severe thunderstorms include lightning, tornadoes, and flooding. Although the weather in the spring can change so quickly there are something you can do in order to prepare.

Space heater in home. Did you know that space heaters account for 86% of fire related heating deaths?

With winter weather approaching, it is important that we keep ourselves and our families warm during the winter months. We here at SERVPRO Chesapeake North want you, and your home or business to be prepared to safely heat your home or business. 

Never heat your home or business with a gas top stove or oven. In addition to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, leaving an unattended stove can cause a fire.

Make sure that all heating equipment especially chimneys are cleaned regularly and inspected prior to use. 

Keep heating equipment away from flammable materials such as furniture, clothing, bedding paper materials and other holiday decorations such as Christmas trees.
