Propane Grill Safety

It’s getting warmer outside and that means grilling season is upon us. SERVPRO® of North Cabarrus County & China Grove responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in China Grove, and offer these tips on how to tell if you have a gas tank hose leak from the NFPA:

  • Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year
    • Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose
    • A propane leak will release bubbles
    • If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill
    • If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again
    • If the leak does not stop, call the fire department
    • If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department
    • Do not move the grill
    • If the flame goes out, turn the grill and gas off and wait at least 5 minutes before re-lighting it

Kannapolis Residents Need to Know.

Did you know that SERVPRO® of North Cabarrus County & China Grove specializes in restoring contents damaged by water? We offer a full range of cleaning and restoration services to restore your belongings and precious keepsakes. We pretest everything we clean to determine if the item is salvageable and to determine the best cleaning method. Here are some tips for protecting your possessions from water damage from the Insurance Information Institute:

Protect your possessions

  • Store off-season and other bulk belongings in waterproof bins, especially in areas where there are plumbing pipes or that are prone to dampness, such as basements and attics
  • Never store valuables or memorabilia where there is a risk of destruction from water. Water and damp also bring with it the threat of mold damage.
  • Keep belongings stored on shelving off the floor in basements. In case of water seepage or sewer backup, they're less likely to get damaged.

Supply Hose Failure in South Rowan?

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

The hot and cold water supply lines are shown on the back of a washing machine. We are the trusted water damage restoration specialists in Cabarrus County!

Monthly Inspections May Prevent Water Damage in South Rowan

At SERVPRO® of North Cabarrus County & China Grove, we’ve responded to many water damage emergencies in South Rowan over the years, and washing machine supply hose failure is a common cause of water damage. The Institute for Business and Home Safety suggests conducting monthly inspections of washing machine supply hoses to prevent water damage:

  • Look for signs the supply hose may be ready to fail—blisters in the hose, worn tubing, stress cracks, or a loose connection.
  • Replace the supply hose with a reinforced steel braided hose if it shows any sign of wear.
  • Tighten the connection if it feels loose. The most common site of failure is near the connection where the hose bends.
  • Replace supply hoses every five years, even if there is no obvious deterioration or wear. Some signs of deterioration may occur from the inside out and may not be visible until it is too late. When replacing washing machine supply hoses, always choose a reinforced steel braided hose over the traditional un-reinforced rubber hose. These hoses will last longer and are far less likely to result in a catastrophic water loss.
