A Reminder From:  SERVPRO of Marine City/Romeo

(586)336 7373 

https://www.SERVPROmarinecityromeo.com

 Safety Tips:  BBQ- Propane and charcoal BBQ grills.  (by: NFPA)

1. The grill should be placed well away form the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.

2. Keep children and pets away from the grill area.

3. Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill

4.  Never leave your grill unattended (by: NFPA)

Stop! Bad Idea!  When burning the grease off your barbecue indoors (even in a large building) then leaving it unattended just for a few minutes can cause a terrible fire.  You may think you'll be right back.  Oops, we all can forget.

Will My Insurance Cover

Water Damage

A standard policy usually covers only water damages where the

cause was “sudden and accidental”, for example forgetting to

turn a faucet off, a burst pipe, or a blocked toilet. A standard

insurance policy will not cover damages from floods or an Act of God.

So if your flooded basement is caused storms, or overflowing rivers, that

is a flood, and not covered Certain insurance carriers have extended

coverage for water back-up. You should always check with your

agent to see if you have ample coverage in case of water damage.
