Prepping For Urban Survival

Prepping For Urban Survival

If a disaster strikes in an urban setting, there are certain precautions one may need to take in order to survive comfortably. With limited space and security, creating a well-strategized plan is key in order to survive whatever hurricane-corona-virus-economic-collapse-zombie-ridden-disaster one may encounter in an urban location.

People Planning

In the event a disaster does strike your city or neighborhood, security weakens and your home or apartment may be potentially in danger. To be successfully prepared for any disaster, plan to prepare with friends, family and/or neighbors. Continue reading “Prepping For Urban Survival”

How to Prep Your House for Storms – Part 1

Making sure you prep your house for storms that are either predicted or that can occur at any time is the best defense against wind, water and related storm damages.

 

Without proper winter preparation of your home, you may end up inviting wind, rain and snow inside and then calling a restoration pro to clean it all up.

 

Tip #1: Inspect the windows

 

No, not in the glass itself (you can see that easily and would have already replaced broken windows.) Check the weather stripping, the caulking and edges of the glass. Ensure no air is getting in or out. This is easier to check on a windy day. Hold a tissue paper up to the areas you are inspecting to see if there is any movement. If so, repair that area. Replace the caulking or weather stripping if necessary.

 

 

Tip #2: Get climbing…

 

… up on the roof, that is. But keep it safe! Hire someone if you aren’t able to physically do this yourself or if there is any danger of falling. You (or someone) needs to inspect your roofing materials, areas around chimneys and vents… anywhere that water can intrude and cause problems. Be sure to repair any damage before the weather turns bad.

 

Tip #3: Clean the gutters

 

Dirty, cluttered gutters don’t do their job very well. Rain can easily turn into snow and ice, and debris in the gutters means they clog up and can cause all kinds of problems for your home. When the leaves stop falling, get out the ladder or hire a pro to ensure your gutters are ready for winter.

 

No matter what you do, occasionally water, wind and ice can damage your home. Do the right thing: Call your disaster restoration pro when his services are needed.

Discarding Moldy Stuff

Do you know what the EPA says about discarding moldy materials?

It’s not as easy as just tossing them into the trash can, which is what some homeowners might be tempted to do when they try out some “do-it-yourself” mold work.

Building materials and furnishings that are contaminated with mold growth and are not salvageable should be double-bagged using 6-mil polyethylene sheeting, the EPA states. These materials can then usually be discarded as ordinary construction waste.

It is important to package mold-contaminated materials in sealed bags before removal from the containment area to minimize the dispersion of mold spores throughout the building.

Large items that have heavy mold growth should be covered with polyethylene sheeting and sealed with duct tape before they are removed from the containment area.

Doesn’t sound like fun, right? As a homeowner, you can get confused following all these mold removal rules and regulations, and these here are just the tip of the iceberg.

Do yourself a favor. When you see some mold, keep yourself and your family safe: Call a mold pro.

Toilet Tragedies

There’s not much that can cause a panic and loud screaming than when the handle of the toilet is pushed and — instead of everything swirling down into the sewer line — it all comes rushing back out.

You know what the “everything” is… and you surely do not wish to be the offending flusher who must clean it up. But someone needs to do the dirty work.

Yes, when a toilet overflows, it’s time to put on your best game face and get ready for action. Put this nightmare behind you. But before you start work, you might wish to reach for good shoes, like rubber boots, along with gloves and other protective gear. A nose clip might not be a bad idea, either.
The first order of business is to stop this exciting event from happening again. Be sure the toilet is unplugged, draining, and working properly. If you clean everything up and it all happens again, your nightmare just repeats itself. Continue reading “Toilet Tragedies”

Develop Your ‘Go Bag’

Floodings, fires, high wind as well as various other harmful occasions brought on by harsh climate can occur anywhere, anytime as well as to anybody.

Assuming as well as preparing in advance can provide you assurance.

One fantastic means to intend in advance is to produce an emergency situation readiness package, or as some refer to it as, a go bag, which is a knapsack, little travel suitcase or various other sort of container loaded with important things you could require in case of an emergency situation, specifically if you are left from your residence.

While it holds true chances remain in your support that you might never ever need to leave your residence or transfer on a momentary basis, when it does occur, your fundamental demands will certainly be looked after if you take a crack at bag prepared to … go.
