Winter Safety Tips to Prevent Water, Fire, and Smoke Damage- New Hampshire (NH)

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , , , .

Soil-Away founder, Jack Solloway, and director of client services, Josh Solloway, were recently featured guests on the Girard at Large Radio Show in Manchester, NH. The topic on hand was “Home Safety Tips for Winter.” The 20 minute interview highlighted steps that homeowners should take to evade costly property damage due to water, fire, and smoke issues.
“The colder winter months are typically when the majority of property damage occurs in New Hampshire,” states Jack. “We want to help people prevent water, fire, and smoke damage if possible. Many of the disasters we cleanup are can be avoided or at least the damage can be minimized if proper precautions are taken.”
The most common winter property damage comes from frozen pipes, ice dams, fires, and oil furnace puff backs. There are some simple actions that homeowner can take to avoid disasters relating to these issues. One example is shutting off the water supply line to your exterior spigots. If left on during the winter, the water may freeze causing the pipe to split and a flood may ensue. Another tip is to have a professional, certified chimney company inspect your chimney on an annual basis. A deteriorating chimney or one that is accumulating creosote is a real concern for fire damage. As a general rule-of-thumb, professional preventative maintenance around your home is one of the easiest ways to avoid common disasters.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
