A white dog is shown wearing a red fire chief helmet. We are trusted leaders in fire mitigation in Riverside County.

SERVPRO® of Murrieta mitigates fire damage in Murrieta throughout the year. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), pets or wild animals have a part in starting over 750 home fires per year. The NFPA reports that these fires involve cooking equipment, fireplaces and chimneys, space heaters, lamps, bulbs, wiring, and candles.

Here are some pet safety tips from the NFPA:

  • Pets are curious. They may bump into, turn on, or knock over cooking equipment. Keep pets away from stoves and countertops.
  • Keep pets away from candles, lamps, and space heaters
  • Always use a metal or heat-tempered glass screen on a fireplace and keep it in place
  • Keep pets away from a chimney’s outside vents
  • Have a “pet-free zone” of at least three feet away from the fireplace. Glass doors and screens can stay dangerously hot for several hours after the fire goes out.
  • Consider battery-operated, flameless candles. They can look and smell like real candles.
  • Watch pets to make sure they don’t chew through electrical cords. Have any problems checked by a professional?

Water Bill Too High in Murrieta Hot Springs?

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

A water meter is shown. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in Riverside County.

It’s always a good idea to periodically inspect your home for water leaks. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) water leaks from over eleven million homes amount to one trillion gallons of water waste each year in the United States. SERVPRO® of Murrieta mitigates water damage in Murrieta Hot Springs homes throughout the year, and many of these restorations could have been minimized if the water damage had been discovered sooner.

Here are some tips from the EPA for checking and determining if you are wasting water, and if so, how to check for leaks:

Take a look at your water usage during a colder month, such as January or February. If a family of four exceeds 12,000 gallons per month, there are serious leaks.

Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after ten minutes, you have a leak.

Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks.

Oh, that smell!

I started noticing a bad odor in my Murrieta store, and I couldn’t locate the source. I had to do something about it fast because I was losing business. Customers would walk in and turn around and walk out.

I called SERVPRO® of Murrieta, and they came out and located the source of the smell. In the crawl space in my ceiling, a large rat had died, causing the awful smell that was permeating the air in my store. The SERVPRO technicians removed the dead rat and cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized my store. Now you would never know my store ever had an odor problem!
