  • Make sure your heater is cleaned an inspected before winter. Regular maintenance can fix minor malfunctions that can become major.
  • If using a portable one, invest in a heater with an automatic shut-off switch in case the unit tips over.
  • Keep bedding, clothing, and curtains 3 or more feet from heaters.
  • Plug portable heaters directly into wall outlets and not into overloaded strips, extension cords or circuits.
  • Test smoke alarms and fire extinguishers periodically.
  • Turn off HVAC units, ovens, and water heaters off before trips.
  • Cover fireplaces with glass or metal screens to prevent embers or sparks from reaching living areas.

Teasdale Fenton responded to a flooded lower level due to a failed sump pump within 90 minutes of being called on a Friday night. Corey and Zack efficiently cleared what needed to be moved out of the way and then removed the water. They set up fans and a large dehumidifier. The next day a team came out to check on everything and measured for dampness.

We had a pipe burst in our attic over a weekend and called Teasdale- Fenton. They sent someone out same-day to quote us on cleanup from the water leak and sent a team out the following day to remove wet insulation and leave Fans to dry everything out. Before removing the fans they moisture tested the whole area. Very pleased with their prompt and professional service.
