The need for biohazard cleanup in Pensacola is great; although it is most definitely something that is not talked about often. Too many people think that if it isn’t talked about, then it doesn’t exist. Therefore it doesn’t really happen, but in all reality it does.

A simple accident can turn a safe environment into an unhealthy and dangerous environment in a split second. At Complete DKI we pride ourselves on professionalism, timely response and safe, confidential removal of bio-hazardous waste. Whatever situation you find yourself in, you can count on Complete DKI to be there to assist you. Complete DKI is equipped to clean up after the following:

For example, our services were needed for the biohazard cleanup of blood products on this airline flight in Pensacola.

Living so close to the coast, water damage in Pensacola is quite a common occurrence. Whether the damage is a result of a severe storm or from a busted pipe within the home, prevention is the key. Preventing a water damage in Pensacola is easy to do! Complete DKI has some tips for you!

  1. Ensure that you have good drainage of water away from your home.
  2. Be careful where you plant! Planting some types of trees and bushes can put your sprinkler system at risk for a busted pipe. Plants such as weeping willows have invasive roots capable of causing a busted sprinkler pipe. Plan before you plant!
  3. Keep an eye or your water bill. Is your water bill creeping through the roof? Don’t know why? You may have a leak! Higher water bills are indicative of a problem.
  4. Use drain snakes over drain chemicals. Although using a drain snake can gross you out because you’re seeing what’s coming out of your pipes. Those harsh chemicals that you’re pouring down the drain are also eating away at your pipes, which in the future can cause a leak.
  5. Never pour grease down your sink!! The grease can harden and stick to your pipes causing a clog!
  6. Going out of town? Turn off your main water line! Doing this prevents any water damage that could happen from happening. Just think of what could happen if you’re gone for a week and you end up with a busted pipe! That is A LOT of water.

A water damage in Pensacola can happen to anyone. It could be due to a leak, a busted pipe, an overflowing bathtub, or even an overflowing toilet because that grandbaby wanted to take her Barbie’s for a swim. Water damage can be very destructive, that is why preventing a water damage in Pensacola is crucial.

A water damage is the number one culprit for any type of damage that happens within the home. If you have suffered from a water damage in your home. Give Complete DKI a call at 850.225.5354! Our emergency crews are on call 24/7 for all your emergency needs!

Smoke detectors vs smoke alarms, do you know the difference? Many people think that a smoke detector and a smoke alarm are two terms that are interchangeable and mean the same thing. Which they most definitely are not. So, let’s look at the difference between the two.

Although they do look alike, a smoke alarm is a device that stands alone and is self-contained. The alarm typically is not hooked up to anything other than a standalone power supply (usually a battery). A smoke alarm isn’t connected to a fire alarm or a control panel. Although it may sound other alarms throughout the house to warn you to get out, it does not alert first responders to the emergency. Which means that they will not be dispatched to your home unless you call 9-1-1.

Now on the other hand, a smoke detector does have a built in sensor and is part of a system within the home. For example, if a family were to have a home security system as well as a smoke detector linked to the system first responders would be dispatched to the emergency without you actually calling 9-1-1. How? The detector is linked to an external sounding device (such as the alarms main panel or strobe unit). This means that you and the first responders will both be notified of the emergency within your home.

All in all, smoke alarms only alert who is inside the home that there is an emergency. Smoke detectors alert the homeowners and the first responders. Homeowners should make an effort to get smoke detectors in their homes over smoke alarms. After all, safety is the number one concern.
