Hurricane Names For 2018
Hopefully, none of these names will be said!
Since last week was all about Hurricane Preparedness, we felt you should have a little more info about this year's Hurricane Season!
The National Hurricane Center generates lists of names, in alphabetical order, to be used for tropical storms and hurricanes.
As storms form, they are named in order. Thus the first tropical storm or hurricane of the year has a name that begins with "A" and the second is given the name that begins with "B." The lists contain hurricane names that begin from A to W, but exclude names that begin with a "Q" or "U."
There are six lists, so a name can recur once every six years so these names can not be used again until 2024. When a hurricane is especially memorable or devastating, that name is retired and another hurricane name replaces it.
Here are the names for the Atlantic Hurricane Season of 2018:
Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sara, Tony, Valerie, and William.
If you sustain storm damage due to hurricanes or any other type of storm, call SERVPRO right away!
Hurricane Preparedness Week Is May 6-12th This Year
SERVPRO puts the broken pieces back together for you!
Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 6-12 2018!
Here are some tips from the desk of the Community Risk Reduction Officer for our local Fire Dept:
During Hurricane Preparedness Week, make sure you have a hurricane evacuation plan.
The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you're in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane.
If you are, figure out where you'd go and how you'd get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn't live an evacuation zone or unsafe home, and coordinate with them to use their home as your evacuation destination.
Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them.
Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about- share your plan with your neighbors.

And as always SERVPRO is here for you when the storm is over to help put your life back together!

When Is Earth Day?
Make A Difference This Earth Day!
Earth Day happens to fall on April 22, 2018, this year!
Although the best strategy to help the planet is to practice environmental consciousness every day, a dedicated national observance day to honor the earth comes in a close second.
We here at SERVPRO of Stafford/Missouri City are always cleaning up disasters and damages all over the planet so we would like to take this time to remind you to do something healthy and proactive for the survival of our precious world!
There are tons of activities in your area that need help and amazing opportunities to volunteer your time and resources.
If you can get out there and plant a tree or take some recycling to the recycle center or even make some food for the volunteers that are working hard on earth day then do it.
Also, it is a great reminder that you should start to think about the spring cleaning and maintenance of your home so that you do not get stuck with faulty equipment.
If you need our help call us today at (281) 403-2256!

Smoke Damage Stinks
Clean Out The Smell With These Tips.
Remove the smell of smoke in your fire-damaged home by following these instructions.
1. Throw open the windows and doors as quickly as possible after the fire. The less time the smoke sits around the greater chance of getting rid of it quickly. Even if it is in the middle of winter, airing your house right away will disperse the smoke and prevent any more absorption.
2. Wash your drapes and linens as soon as possible; they will absorb the smoke odor rapidly. Wash them in the hottest water that the fabric can endure and heavy duty washing detergent.
3. Clean your cabinets, walls, and floors with a one-part vinegar, one part warm water solution. Be sure to test this first but most surfaces are fine with this solution. Vinegar naturally absorbs odors so the smell of vinegar and smoke should go away in a few hours after using it.
4. Place bowls of baking soda around your kitchen, and even put a few in the cabinets, pantry, and any other room that has an odor. This too will help to absorb the odor in a few days time. Sprinkle the rugs and carpeting with baking soda and vacuum. Sprinkle the baking soda again and this time let sit for a few days time before vacuuming.
5. If the house still reeks of smoke or if you don’t want to mess with it in the first place, just call us here at SERVPRO and we’ll get it right out.
