Storm Clean-Up After a Tornado

ServiceMaster Restoration by David

Tornadoes are a scary reality for many people in the United States, especially in the south and Midwest. They often come with scarce warning, and little time to prepare for the oncoming storm. Taking proper action immediately after a tornado is crucial to prevent further damage to your home and belongings, and to keep your family safe. Whether the damage to your property is minor or severe, quick action after the event can ensure that your home remains safe and lacks sustained damage. 

Christmas Tree Fire Safety 

ServiceMaster Restoration by David

Christmas is right around the corner. As most of you know, Nashville is a beautiful place during the holidays. The Opryland Hotel is a popular destination to take in all the gorgeous holiday lights and Christmas decor. Who does not love the beautiful lights and smell of Christmas cookies baking in the oven? Unfortunately, holiday decorating at home can result in tragedy. Christmas trees are very combustible and can catch fire, ripping through a home. Fresh cut trees dry out quickly once they are brought indoors. Any spark caused by a loose wire from lights on a tree or a tree that is placed near an open flame, can cause an intense blaze, engulfing the home quickly. These tragic Christmas tree related fires are rare, but the National Fire Protection Association warns they are likely to be more deadly than others.  


The leading cause of storm damage is thunderstorms. Fall is a prevalent time for thunderstorms. Fall is even considered storm season. Do you know how to prepare for a storm? At ServiceMaster Restoration by David, we would like you to know about storm safety to help you be prepared for damage caused by storms.
