Brush Fires are A Common Cause of Fire Damage in Homes and Businesses

Though Oahu is 597 square miles, we have varying climates depending on which side of the island you are on. On the North and East side there are  West side there tends to be the drier climates. On this drier side it is much easier for possible brush fires to occur.

To prevent such brush fires read the tips below!

How to Prevent Brush Fires

  1. Keep matches and lighters away from children.
  2. To burn trash, do so in a metal container. But only after you have cleared the surrounding area. Make sure you aren't near overhanging branches or bushes.
  3. Never leave a fire unattended.
  4. Never throw cigarette butts out your vehicle window.
  5. Install spark arresters on small engines and equipment.
  6. Weld only in a shop building or a cleared area.

What Storm Damage Will Your Insurance Cover for Your Kokokahi Home or Business

8/23/2019 (Permalink)

Flooding on Oahu Street Flooding damages in your home may not all be covered by your insurance. Take precautions and call your insurance to find out what damages they cover.

Take the Proper Steps to Know What Your Insurance Will Cover After a Storm

In the state of Hawaii, flooding is not uncommon. Due to our rainy season, November to March, taking up almost half a year flooding and storm damage is fairly common for local Kokokahi homes and businesses. Many residents of Hawaii find themselves stuck in financial hardship when covering the costs of flood damage. The steps many property owners forget to take are inquiring from your insurance company of their flooding coverage.

Most insurance companies do not cover flooding damage when the water runs into a home from outside. This means if any rushing or flooding water outside were to enter your home through a door, window, or crack the insurance will not cover the damages. Call and check with your insurance company to inquire what damages they will cover. In the case, your insurance will not cover these damages take comfort in knowing there are steps you can take to prevent your home from suffering from flood damages. Have your home prepared with sandbags, and a sump pump to prevent water from entering your home. Also, be sure to keep on maintenance in your home to prevent possible situations your insurance won’t cover. 

Do not look past a small leak coming from your ceiling. Keep the maintenance of your home up-kept throughout the year. Insurance companies will decline to pay for storm damages if your home has had ongoing issues you did not take care of that cause damage to your home or business.

Check with your property and contact your insurance company to make certain you are prepared and aware of what needs to be done if your property is in danger of flooding.

If you have been hit by a storm call SERVPRO at (808)235-5015. We specialize in restoration and reconstruction services for fire damage, mold, and storms. Call today for an inspection.

Professional Water Damage Remediation Services In Pearl City Area

Wooden flooring bubbling up due to neglected water damage Water seeped into wooden flooring and caused the flooring to bubble and crack.

Do not push water damage aside in your Pearl City Home

Water Damage can and will worsen with neglect. Pushing water-related issues out of mind will not repair the damage and will drastically worsen with time. Do not wait! Sitting water will seep into walls, cabinets, and furniture causing the damage to worsen and pose new threats in supporting mold growth. Ensure any water damage does not worsen through neglect, take the needed steps to care for your home.

Per Say a refrigerator in your Pearl City kitchen was to have a “small” leak and a simple solution would be to place a towel on the ground to catch leaking water. Temporary or quick fixes may seem effective in taking care of seemingly small issues, but if the issue is not treated by professionals immediately, the issue will worsen over time and possibly result in greater damage, causing higher costs down the road. With repeated exposure to moisture, the risk of water damage and the potential of fungi growth increases. There is also the possibility the leak may worsen and the flooring or cabinets are then at significantly higher risk of bubbling or cracking due to the repeated exposure of water.
