SERV the World by PROtecting the Environment

Are you a sucker for long showers? Is it too much of a hassle to bring reusable shopping bags to the grocery store? Today is a good day to think about your habits, and try to better yourself and the world around you. 

Below are a few tips on how you can prepare:

  • Leaving your car at home. Leaving your car at home twice a week can cut greenhouse gas emissions by 1,600 pounds per year.
  • Refuel when its cool. Don't fill up in the heat of the day, when you are likely to spill and have fuel evaporate into the atmosphere. Also, never top of your tank, which lets extra fuel drip onto the ground.
  • Invest in Energy Star Products. Is your refigerator getting old? Looking for a new washing machine? Keep an eye out for the EPA Energy Star sticker, which will save you both energy and money in the long run.
  • Recycle your Electronics. Take the old cellphone or broken laptop to your local electronics recycling center.
  • Be efficient with water use. Don't pre-wash dishes, time yourself in the shower, and make sure all faucets are completely off when your finished using them.
  • Reuse. Instead of throwing away that empty egg carton or shopping bag, give it a second life.
  • Read Labels. Try to stay away from products containing harmful chemical and dyes.
  • Scoop the Poop. Make sure to dispose of waste properly, so that pet poo doesn't flow into storm drains and pollute the water.

Several rooms in the home were affected because of this. SERVPRO of Thomas, Colquitt & Grady Counties was ready to roll in as soon as we received the call.

Hurricane season is here! Running from June 1st until November 30th, it is time to start planning for the season. The NOAA has predicted a normal year for the Atlantic Ocean, with a 30%of a below normal year. They are saying 9-15 storms named with 4-8 possibly turning into hurricanes with winds greater than 74 miles per hour.NOAA says this outlook is for overall season activity and is not a landfall forecast. These forecast are very important because they help us plan for the year and get a good idea of what might be to come. It is never to early to begin to prepare for hurricane season, and what your plan of action would be in the event there is a storm threat in your area.
