Heatwaves, Rolling-Blackouts, and Wildfires, California's Storm Season
Many of our homes and businesses lose power in Los Angeles County due to rolling blackouts and heatwaves. It is very important that you make smart decisions to protect your property and your family during the heat storms.
Candles can make a power-outage turn into a fire damage disaster in your Woodland Hills, CA home very quickly. If your power is out, it is much safer to use flashlights or another battery-powered light fixture. If candles must be used, ensure the candle is never left unattended and place it in a fireproof lantern or holder.
Power outages from heatwaves, wildfires, and rolling blackouts can also create dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning from indoor grills or generators. These items when used in a confined indoor area can be fatal. Carbon monoxide leaks cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted, therefore many do not realize they are being poisoned by it until it is too late. It is also a good idea to unplug appliances and keep your property well ventilated.
In the unfortunate event, you have experienced wildfire, smoke, or soot damage or any other disaster at your property due to the California storm season, our highly trained customer services representatives and IICRC certified technicians are here to help; please call SERVPRO of Woodland Hills 818-882-4556.
