Winter can be especially harsh on your roof. Now that spring is here, it’s time to inspect your roof and address any issues that could have been caused by the past few month’s cold weather. Here are some spring maintenance tips from the experts at American Restoration Fire & Water LLC. Inspecting your roof can be dangerous so only follow these steps if you feel comfortable climbing on your roof. If you don’t have a lot of experience, it’s best to call for professional help.

Leaky pipes are a significant source of water waste for a household. The typical home can potentially lose anywhere between 2,000 and 20,000 gallons of water annually due to leaks! Now that New Mexicans are going about their spring cleaning projects, American Restoration Water & Fire LLC would like to take this opportunity to remind you to take a look at your supply pipes. Supply lines can create flooding dangers inside your home. Inspecting your plumbing fixtures helps prevent serious damage. Here’s what to look for when you conduct your whole-house check for leaks.

At American Restoration Water and Fire LLC, we frequently come across homes that have been damaged by water, fire and smoke. More often than not, these incidents of damage can be prevented through regular maintenance of a property. It doesn’t matter if you’re a homeowner, property manager, or a real estate investor, you can prevent serious damage with some simple upkeep!

It’s springtime, and that means daylight savings. Unless you live in Arizona, you changed your clocks recently, but did you use that opportunity to change your smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries as well? Daylight Savings is the perfect time to change all detector batteries. American Restoration Fire & Water LLC, would like to emphasize what fire departments are reminding families everywhere this time of year – make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are in working order, it can mean your life!

Although New Mexico is one of the least flood prone states, we have experienced our share of heavy rains in the past few years. When dealing with a flood during monsoon season, homeowners and business owners may not know what to do to protect their belongings and property. Here are some steps American Restoration Fire & Water recommends in case of an emergency.

Mold is everywhere. It’s in the air, it’s outdoors, and it’s common in buildings and homes wherever moisture can be found. Mold spores can enter your home through open windows, doorways, and vents. After a flood event, mold thrives in water damaged buildings. If it’s not removed immediately, it can impact the wood framing of your home and cause significant structural damage. Exposure to indoor mold growth can also be linked to adverse health effects. American Restoration Fire & Water LLC, wants you to be aware of the dangers so you can protect your family and your property.

The roof over your head is literally the most important element of your home when it comes to protecting you and your family. So when disaster strikes, water or fire damage can leave your roof in need of emergency repair services. American Restoration Fire & Water LLC responds quickly to calls for disaster recovery throughout New Mexico. While you’re waiting on your contractor to repair the damage, it’s important to protect vulnerable areas of your roof with tarp so that your roof isn’t left exposed to the elements and further deterioration.

There’s nothing cozier in the wintertime than cuddling up with a good book, a cup of chamomile tea, and basking in the warmth of your fireplace or wood stove. As soothing as this scenario sounds, unfortunately fireplaces and wood stoves are some of the most common causes of winter fires. American Restoration Water & Fire LLC has compiled some tips on how to avoid potential dangers and protect your family, while still getting the most out of this winter time tradition.

It’s 2 am and you’re sound asleep when suddenly you’re awakened by the unwelcome shrill sound of your fire alarm. Half asleep, yet running on adrenaline, you inhale smoke and know you need to get out of the house! In this situation, when you need to think and act fast, would you and your family know what to do? American Restoration Water & Fire, LLC recommends having an emergency fire escape plan. It can save your life!

According to the EPA, indoor air pollutants can be anywhere from two to five times more toxic than our outdoor environment. These toxins can be harmful to your health and to your family’s health. American Restoration cares about your well-being. We want you to know the sources of those pollutants, and ways you can protect yourself:

As you know, water expands when it freezes. Ice takes up 10% more space than it does in its liquid state. What does this mean for your home’s plumbing? Pipes are already full when water is in in its liquid state, so there’s nowhere for it to go when it freezes. Water pipes in external walls are especially susceptible. With weather already almost freezing, the professional water damage restoration team at American Restoration recommends taking the time to winterize your outdoor faucets for the cold.

As the weather changes – and consequently our behavior – with the season, so does the frequency and severity of house fires. At American Restoration, this time every year, we get an increased number of calls for fire damage restoration. What’s causing these winter fires?
