A person is inspecting a smoke detector. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Yamhill County.

Our local team in Yamhill and Tillamook Counties has been restoring fire damage in Carlton for many years. Smoke alarms are a critical part of a home fire escape plan, as these alarms are essential in reducing fire deaths and injuries in the United States.

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years

How Can I Tell If I Have a Shower Leak in Rockaway Beach?

12/6/2022 (Permalink)

A person is taking a shower. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Tillamook County.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that homes in the United States waste more than one trillion gallons of water each year. Our local team in Yamhill and Tillamook Counties responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year in Rockaway Beach. Here are some tips from the EPA for detecting shower leaks:

Shower Leaks

  • Most leaky showerheads can be fixed by ensuring a tight connection using pipe tape and a wrench. If you are replacing a showerhead, look for one that has earned the WaterSense label.
  • A good method to check for leaks is to examine your water use. A family of four likely has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. You probably have a leak if the meter does not read exactly the same.
  • Place a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank to check for a toilet bowl leak. You have a leak if the color shows up in the bowl within ten minutes without flushing.
