Community Emergency Ready Profile The advantages to having an ERP

At SERVPRO of Brighton/ Howell we try to encourage all of our commercial customers to have an Emergency Ready Profile. As we all know, preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it's a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood.  The best time for planning for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens.  Have one of our SERVPRO team members come out to your business to walk through the steps in case of any emergency. No one ever plans on a disaster, but you can plan for it.  Now is the time to ask yourself, "Are you ready for whatever could happen?" Give us a call today, 810-220-3711

Community Fire Hazards A Garage Fire

Every year SERVPRO® of Brighton/ Howell and Greater Highland/ White Lake is called out to address fires that begin in the garage and that is why we try to educate homeowners on possible fire hazards.  Most of these fires are caused by electrical shortages/ malfunctions or by improperly stored flammable liquids.  This fire was caused when a charging station was placed on top of an appliance with flammable liquid inside, the heat from the charger ignited the liquid. 

Follow these simple tips to keep your family and home safe.

·      Store oil, gasoline, paints, propane and varnishes in a shed away from your home.

·      Keep items that can burn on shelves away from appliances.

 ·      Plug only one charging appliance into an outlet and don’t use an extension cord when charging an appliance.

Community Informing Realtors Our informational table display.

Here at SERVPRO of Brighton/ Howell and Greater Highland/ White Lake, we are always reaching out to new markets to spread the word about our services.  Realtors are a very important resource, if the home they are trying to sell is vacant, it's not uncommon for them to find that a pipe has broken or if mold is found during a home inspection.

That is why every year we attend the Livingston County Association of Realtors Education Expo to keep the realtors informed about the services we offer and to answer any questions they may have.
