Cold Weather Comfort. Servpro of Chesapeake South, VA.
It’s coming. You can probably feel it right now.
That’s right. Winter! Brrr! For some across the country, this means trying to keep warm and snug in the home.
Some find comfort from their fireplaces. Others might use electric blankets. And others rely on space heaters, either gas powered or electric, to boost the comfort level their regular heating system can’t always provide, especially in sub-zero temperatures.
Space heater safety is very important, as many suffer from accidental fires and burns annually from these necessary devices.
The first consideration is which type of space heater you will choose. Electric models are considered safer than those which use fuel, which can be overturned and quickly cause a fire difficult to extinguish. So be smart when shopping and consider how the heater will be used and if there are children or pets (or clumsy adults) that might tip it over.
But if anything does happen, such as a fire or smoke damage, then it’s time to get some professional help. Call your disaster restoration experts. After all, it pays to call a pro!
