Being Ready For Any Storm
Storms can happen at any time since as we all know the weather in the Chicago area can be unpredictable to say the least. Being prepared is a must so here is our recommended list:
- Flashlight with extra batteries
- First Aid Kit
- Cellphone battery back up charger
- Canned food
- Manual Can Opener
- Bottled Water
- Fire Extinguisher
- Battery Power Radio
Having these items may help keep panic at a minimum. Keep these items in a safe place you can go in the event of any type of storm. If you have a basement, or possibly in a bathroom closet if you do not have a basement. The canned food should have a long shelf life so be sure to check expiration dates at least once a year and replenish your supply if necessary. Also be sure to regularly test your batteries.

Fire Safety In Your Orland Park Business
If you are a business owner, you may feel like you have a lot to lose if a fire were to occur in your business.
Many fires can be avoided if employees are trained properly on how to prevent them. According to OSHA if fire extinguishers are available, it is the business owner's responsibility to educate employees on how to properly use one. The training should be provided when the employee is initially hired and then once a year for a refresher.
Most fire extinguishers operate using the P.A.S.S. technique:
1. PULL the pin.
2. AIM low, at the base of the fire.
3. SQUEEZE the handle to activate.
4. SWEEP from side to side at the base of the fire until the fire is out.
If you experience a fire in your home or business call us today (708) 532-3377.
Attic Mold In Orland Park
One of the most common phone calls we get are from concerned residents who think they have found mold in their home. The first question that we ask them is if it is visible or not? The second question is where is the mold located?
At least half of our customers who call regarding mold are in the process of selling their homes and an inspector has found mold in their attic. Mold in your attic can be caused from a number of reasons. Improper ventilation system from a bathroom or a leaky roof are the top 2 causes. Most people usually do not inspect their attic unless they notice something visible on an interior ceiling, a musty smell or if they store items up there.
If you see signs of mold, call us today (708) 532-3377. For more information on our mold services you can click here: Mold Remediation and Restoration.

Floor Drying Systems
At SERVPRO of Orland we know that every water damage event is a little different and may require a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. We take pride in helping our clients maintain the integrity and structure of their belongings.
When a large area of wood floors is affected, we have specialty systems to dry them without removing the entire floor. Replacing an entire floor can be very costly. Wood can easily warp and begin to separate in a short period of time when affected by water. Our inject a dry system uses a special mat with hoses and air movers attached to dry underneath the floor.
We take pride in helping our clients maintain the integrity and structure of their belongings. Returning our customers lives back to normal as quickly as possible is our number one concern.
