5 Tips for Driving Safely in the Rain

11/3/2017 (Permalink)

Community 5 Tips for Driving Safely in the Rain Rain is a top cause of most auto accidents. Be safe out there.

It's that time of year again here in Butte County when the rain is going to becoming more and more common which has the potential of increasing the rate of vehicle accidents. Not paying attention and driving more cautiously may lead to devastating results. SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor compiled 5 tips that all drivers should take heed of during the rainy weather to not only protect yourself and everyone in your vehicle but the drivers around you.

1) Think and pay close attention to your surroundings. 

Many people drive subconsciously, out of habit, and sometimes even the crazy weather conditions will not change their way of driving. Make sure you are alert and well-aware of your surroundings. When conditions are less than ideal this rule is even more important. 

2) Turn on your headlights and keep them on.

It's the law to turn on your functioning headlights when visibility is low. Make sure to get all needed repairs done for your vehicle so that your headlights, windshield wipers and tires are in good working order. Having any one of these important safety items damaged could lead to dangerous conditions in severe weather. 

3) Beware of hydroplaning.

Hydroplaning is the technical term for what occurs when your tires are getting more traction on the water in the road rather than on the road itself which leads your car to sliding. If weather conditions are difficult or impossible for you to drive through safely, pull over and wait for conditions to improve. 

4) Turn off cruise control.

Ironically cruise control may cause for you to lose even more control of your vehicle especially if your vehicle is hydroplaning. 

5) SLOW DOWN.

Speed limit signs are not suggestions for how fast you should go, it is the law. Focus more on getting to your destination safely rather than faster. Allow yourself more time to spare to get to your destination.

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor wants everyone to be safe during these conditions and to be mindful of it. Driving safely isn't a suggestion, it is a necessity.

Community 2016 Annual Harvest Party Thank you to everyone who came out and supported!

Every year, SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor teams up with the Chico Firefighters Association Adopt-A-Family and Justin's Bike Fund to help out the families in the community.

The Annual Harvest Party is a benefit for both of these funds from which all of the proceeds raised and donated go towards. Everyone had an awesome time this year having great good, playing in the bounce house, playing our carnival games, posing in the photo booth, and decorating their own cupcake. 

There were smiles all night long and this year we raised approximately $2000 for these causes!

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor’s Tips for a Safe Halloween!

10/26/2016 (Permalink)

Community SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor’s Tips for a Safe Halloween! SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor wishes you and your family a very Happy Halloween!

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor wants everyone to have a fun and safe Halloween this year.

Here are some tips to help you keep your children safe while trick-or-treating.

Walk Safely

  1. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  2. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. 
  3. Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  4. Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  5. Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to
    the left as possible.  Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
  6. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Trick or Treat With an Adult

  1. Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.

Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe

  1. Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.
  2. Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
  3. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers. 
  4. When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls. 

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween

  1. Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
  2. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
  3. Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
  4. Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
  5. Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.
  6. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

SERVPRO's 2-Part CE Class

Community SERVPRO's 2-Part CE Class SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor has only 4 CE Classes left for the remainder of the 2016 year. Call today to find out the dates and save your spot!

This morning SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor hosted 2 CE Classes for the Butte County agents and adjusters so that they may earn their required units.

The first class was all about the "Deodorization of Malodors" and everyone walked away knowing something entirely new. William, the owner of SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor, told a couple of personal stories and made the material easy and fun to learn.

The second class was all about the "Mitigation Awareness and Response Seminar". All of our guests were interested about the enthusiasm William has with both of these subjects. 

After the second class our guests, William, and our Marketing Department got to sit down to a local lunch and chat. It was a great time getting to know each other further and developing lasting relationships.

We also auctioned off a raffle prize to which all funds went directly to the Chico Firefighters Association Adopt-a-Family and Justin's Bike Foundation. All of the agents and adjusters participated in the raffle. 

All in all, today was an enormous success not just for our guests but also our staff.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game! (Employee Appreciation 2016)

9/1/2016 (Permalink)

Community Take Me Out to the Ball Game! (Employee Appreciation 2016) It was a beautiful day in San Francisco for the game!

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor got the opportunity to head out and support the San Francisco Giants team on August 27th with our incredible employees.

Everyone had a great time before we even left for the game as there was a Hot Dog bar for our guests to make their own sack lunch for the bus ride down.

 There were tons of games, snacks, drinks, and laughs on the 5 hour drive to the game. I think anyone in attendance would say that even just being on the bus and having a great time was one of the best parts of the day!

When we got to the game, a couple of our guests got a complementary Giants speaker that really made the experience even better.

All of our guests had a really great time at the game just enjoying each other’s company, watching the anticipating game, and eating all of the garlic fries the stadium had to offer!

Unfortunately, the Giants lost the game. However, there were no complaints about the day because we got to spend it all together.

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor cannot express how essential our awesome staff is to every project that we complete. Words nor actions could ever express the gratitude accurately, but this is a start!

All in all, this event was a HOME RUN!

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor loves participating in this event every year and we are best known for our creative float design and the tons and Tons and TONS of candy that gets tossed to the excited crowd.

This year, SERVPRO not only had an excellent float and tons of candy for the community, but we also sold water guns and bubble for donations. Altogether, we raised $400 that day for the Relay For Life event that we also participated in.

We love this event and we love the opportunity to be able to gather with the community and really make a difference. We can’t wait to see you all again next year!

SERVPRO Helps Clean Caper Acres

CHICO -- Once again, the Chico cleaning company SERVPRO has stepped up for Caper Acres.


Earlier this summer, the company became dedicated to helping the city keep Caper Acres open when budget issues forced the closure of the play area four days a week.


SERVPRO volunteered to take on cleaning duties in Bidwell Park to free up city staff to concentrate on safety inspection, repair and cleaning at Caper Acres.


But its commitment was only through Oct. 1.


In a press release issued Thursday by the city, SERVPRO has extended that commitment to Nov. 1.


"SERVPRO's generosity has meant that park staff can focus on other areas of the park, such as fixing irrigation and infrastructure issues, vegetation management and tree pruning. As we proceed, we will be looking into more of these types of solutions and we are thankful that SERVPRO is extending its time through October to Nov. 1," said Ruben Martinez, public works director. Reported in the Chico ER.
