Protect Your Home From Lightning

This home was struck by lightning while the homeowners were out of town. It soon caught on fire after the strike, with no one around to call the fire department. It was later found by a neighbor walking their dog, only to find just the foundation and garage doors left. We were there to help with any fire damage restoration, but sadly there was little to salvage as the family lost nearly everything. To protect your home from lightning strikes, install a lightning arrester that will direct the strike away from the house. In addition, make sure you backup any photos, documents, memorabilia, etc. to a cloud storage just in case. Call us today for any fire or flood restoration needs!

Where to Check For Mold

Mold remediation is important for a home and a business because it keeps the building looking new, neat and promotes safety. If mold is left untreated, they can pose a health issue. For some DIY inspection, here are some tips on where to look for mold.

Areas With Moisture – Mold forms the most in areas that have a lot of moisture. For homes, rooms that have a lot of humidity usually produce moisture, which will result in mold.
Ceilings & Walls – These areas are popular for mold because they are areas where moisture can be trapped. In addition, the piping for the houses tend to drip and may leak. Once mold starts in these areas, they will spread and eventually become visible. It is important to catch the mold early on so there is less contamination.
Shower Tile & Shower Curtains – The most common place for mold to grow in a household is in the shower. This is because it is the place with the most moisture, coming from the heat of the shower along with the water. In addition, the dirt and grime from your body combines with shampoo which will latch onto the curtains. Unless you wipe down your curtains, excess moisture can cause mold to form.

Along with our water damage services, Northeast Water Remediation Inc offers additional services to help out our clients. This additional water service is sewage backup cleanups. During harsh thunderstorms and periods of time where there is a lot of rain, flooding can occur. Not only can flooding cause damages to a home by causing water to come in, it can also cause backups in the sewage lines. Recently we have been helping out clients in Billerica with sewage clean up as harsh rain has caused their sewage lines to backup and cause damage to the home's drain pipes. If not treated quickly and efficiently, these sewage backups can cause health risks. With our 24 hour service, we are always on call to assist anyone with any sewage issue or other remediation need.

House Fire Saftey Tips

As the climate continues to rise as summer gets closer and closer, people should take into consideration of the higher risk of fires. House fires can be started by the smallest thing and are at higher risk now that temperatures will be hotter, as well as humidity. If any damages occur due to fire, or water, please contact Clean Joe for the best restoration services! To help prevent any catastrophes at home, here is a small guideline to follow to make sure you are being safe throughout the summer.

Keep Heating Utilities in Good Condition – Many house fires are started because heating equipment is not kept up and maintained. By annually checking heaters, fireplaces, chimneys, etc. you are significantly reducing the chances of a house fire.
Electrical Equipment – Another leading cause of house fires is from faulty electrical units. Always keep an eye out for frayed or torn wires and chords. Another safe practice is making sure that no wires are run underneath carpet, rugs, furniture, or anything that could catch fire if something were to happen.
Candles – Candles are a popular house item as they provide great smells that fill the air. However, if left unattended, can cause a lot of damage. Mostly if they are left near curtains or other items that can catch fire easily. Make sure that you have sturdy holders so they are not easily knocked over. In addition to combing the house before you leave to make sure any candles are put out.
