WE CAN HELP

Nutrients (food), suitable place to grow, and moisture are the only three things needed to have mold grow and spread quickly.   These three things are not hard for mold to find.  Mold can be hidden in walls, under carpets, behind ceiling tiles or it can be visible and growing right in front of your eyes.  How do you know if you have mold?

  • Look for visible mold growth (it may look cottony, velvety, rough, or leathery and have different colors like white, gray, brown, black, yellow, or green). Mold often appears as a staining or fuzzy growth on furniture or building materials (walls, ceilings, or anything made of wood or paper). Look for signs of moisture or water damage (water leaks, standing water, water stains, condensation, etc.).
  • Check around air handling units (air conditioners, furnaces) for standing water. Routinely inspect the evaporator coils, liner surfaces, drain pans and drain lines.
  • Search areas where you notice mold odors. If you can smell an earthy or musty odor, you may have a mold problem.
  • If mold-allergic people have some allergy symptoms when in your home, mold might be the problem.

Check out what Brice Pelfrey, CPM, Director of Property Management, Beck Property Company, Inc. said about his mold experience with Complete DKI…..

” I have used several mold remediation companies in the past, and tenants are very rarely completely satisfied once the work is done. Usual tenant complaints are of headaches due to mold still in the facility or call weeks later and say the mold had returned. The last time I had a mold problem, I called Complete DKI. They performed the work afterhours so that regular business would not be interrupted. They performed all the mold remediation, and I have not had a single complaint from the tenant. I was very impressed with how thorough the crew was with the mold removal and I was especially pleased at how quickly Complete DKI finished the job. I highly recommend Complete DKI. ”

Turning on the TV in the morning to our local news channel and hearing that bad weather is on it’s way is the absolute last thing we want to hear to start our day. Of course when we get word that a bad storm is brewing and our home is in danger, it is human nature to become a little nervous. Now sometimes we can hear this news and think that the meteorologist that is making the prediction is wrong and that the storm will pass; that could be likely BUT it is also very likely that they are in fact correct and we need to prepare ourselves and our family for the worst. So where do we start? Complete DKI is here to help with some tips on what to do, what to pack and how to prepare your safe room BEFORE we get the news of a storm coming our way!

  • Make  a family emergency plan. Make sure you discuss with all of your family members what to do in case you have to get out of your house immediately or if you get split up during the process. Have a meeting spot near your house that is in a safe place.
  • Prepare a home emergency kit. Some key items for this kit would include- Batteries (stored safely), medication, portable radio, back up phone battery/charger, water/snacks, first aid kit, sturdy gloves, torch (battery operated), toiletries, pet food (if applicable), baby food/diapers (if applicable), any valuables, water proof bags, etc. 
  • Keep your home emergency kit in a safe and dry place. Make sure that all of the items are not expired and are able to use.
  • Secure any items around your property that could fly away in high winds and could be a hazard to you or your home.
  • Make sure your home and car insurance is up to date
  • Clear any loose branches around your home that could be a hazard during high winds
  • Make sure you know how to correctly and safely turn off your power and gas in case of an emergency
  • Identify your safe room and make sure your family knows the quickest and most efficient way to get themselves and any pets into the room
  • Get shutters or metal screens fitted to your windows for extra protection
  • After a storm warning, act quickly and listen to the advice officials have given you. Make sure your other family members are aware and ready to move in t If you experience damage in your home, call Complete DKI 24/7.

  • Make sure your pets are safely inside 
  • Grab your emergency kit and activate your family emergency plan

Sometimes we don’t get a lot of warning before a storm. You could have heard a day ago that there will be a bad storm passing and there will be tornado warnings, but you think nothing of it. The next thing your know, the electricity cuts out and you hear faint sirens notifying you that a tornado is near. Times like those make us thankful that we have family emergency plans and we know what to do in these types of situations. If you don’t already have a plan, we encourage you to take these tips and put one together for you and your family. Never take a storm warning lightly; always prepare for the worst.

Believe it or not, battery fires are a huge deal. From the moment you buy the pack of batteries at your local grocery store, it is important to store them in a safe place. There have been many cases where 9 volt batteries have been the cause of a house fire. What is alarming to us, is that our fire detectors call for 9 volt batteries so it is very important for everyone to know how to dispose of them safely when replacing them. Complete DKI is here to help you and your family become aware of the hazards so that you can prevent a house fire in your home.

I know to a lot of people, battery fires are not the first thing on your mind. In fact, you may even be unaware that 9 volt batteries are such a huge threat! There have been accidents where someone is simply just changing the batteries in their fire alarm at home and without thinking anything of it, they tossed the used batteries in the trash can like any other garbage. The next thing you know, your trash can is sitting out by the street and there are roaring flames that takes more than your water hose to put out. To provide you with even more information about battery fires and safety precautions for you and your family, we have attached a couple videos that may catch your attention.  http://themotherlist.com/fire-safety-video-must-watch/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75_f6CjIcz8 A fire or any disaster for that matter is something that no one wants to experience in a lifetime, so that is why it is so important to be prepared and have a safety plan!  If you experience fire damage in your home, call Complete DKI 24/7. Our technicians work around the clock and are always fully prepared in uniforms and clearly marked Complete DKI vans. Our technicians are always professional and presentable! If you experience fire damage, please contact our full service location on Davis Highway by calling 850-CALL-DKI or 850-225-5354.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas….Keep that in mind this year while cooking your holiday meal. I think we can all agree a charred and soot filled Christmas is last on our list! Cooking in the kitchen on Christmas can be a very stressful event. Family is in town, kids are running around like crazy and having all your family in one house is bound to be pure chaos. Did you know that frying in the kitchen poses the greatest risk for a fire? Since this is the sad truth, Complete DKI would like to provide some tips for you and your family this Christmas to prevent a disaster.

  • First and foremost, always make sure that your home has working smoke alarms. Never remove any of the batteries without replacing them. Having a working smoke alarm can save your life.
  • Even though this time of the year is hectic, make sure you are always paying attention to your food and never leave it unattended. Always be alert and have timers for your dishes. This helps prevent kitchen fires and of course, who would want their food burnt to a crisp?
  • Leftovers are the best this time of year. It’s like your Christmas meal gets to go on for days and what is better than that? Make sure that you keep leftovers in the fridge and do not leave anything in the oven. If another family member didn’t realize the oven was stocked up, they could turn it on and this would be a recipe for disaster. 
  • Leading up to Christmas Eve, you have all the kids in town and since cooking will be the only thing you will have to do for the next couple days, pizza delivery is a must. Make sure that the pizza boxes do not get left in the oven. This is a huge fire risk. 
  • In case of an emergency, it is important that your family has an emergency escape plan and knows what to do in case of a fire.
  • If you are frying food this Christmas, make sure when the fryer is in use it is never left unattended. Unattended cooking is the leading cause for kitchen fires.

Christmas is the most exciting time of the year. It’s a holiday for giving, loving, eating and being around our loved ones. Even though we are all going to be busy preparing our holiday meal, try to keep these tips in mind to prevent a disaster in your home this year. We often think that leaving the food to fry by itself will be just fine while we go and greet Aunt Betty at the front door but the next thing you know little Charlie rides his new scooter through the kitchen while Susan is chasing him, they knock over the grease filled fryer without realizing it and the next thing you know the kitchen is up in flames. We can all agree that a house fire is not on our Christmas list to Santa this year.

If you experience fire damage in your home, call Complete DKI 24/7. Our technicians work around the clock and are always fully prepared in uniforms and clearly marked Complete DKI vans. Our technicians are alwaysprofessional and presentable! If you experience fire damage, please contact our full service location on Davis Highway by calling 850-CALL-DKI or 850-225-5354.

Complete DKI wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With Winter quickly approaching us, all that is on our minds is hot chocolate, warm blankets, layers of clothing, cranking the heat up, and for a few of us a miserable couple of months ahead. While some of us may be more than ready for Winter, others are indeed, not! We all like to make sure we are warm and comfy in our homes, especially during these cold months. There are many safe heating methods that Complete DKI would love to share with you, as well as those not so smart methods that could do a lot of damage to you and/or your home. Here are some tips for you and your family this Winter!

  • Never burn charcoal inside your home as a fuel alternative. This is extremely dangerous. If charcoal is being burnt in an enclosed space, it gives off deadly amounts of carbon monoxide fumes that could kill you.
  • Do not burn excessive amounts of paper to build a vast fire in the fire place. This can cause a house fire by igniting the soot and creosote in the chimney. Also, never remove the fireplace screen to allow more heat in the house. It is there to keep sparks from flying out of the fire place and starting a fire.
  • Electric furnaces, baseboard heaters, and other heating methods that use electricity, are the most efficient and safe heating methods out there. Although these methods are a bit pricey, if they are an option for you, the safety features on these heaters make it worth it for your family’s safety.
  • Natural gas heating is very cost effective and actually a very popular way to heat your home. Natural gas is very clean and healthy for the environment we live in. No matter what time of the year it is or what the weather is like outside, natural gas is always safe and reliable. Once you start using it,is has an immediate impact on the environment.
  • Do not use your kitchen stove as a heating source. This is a huge fire hazard and can cause serious damage. People have been known to leave all the burners on at the same time or even set the oven temperature at the highest it can go to heat their home. If you have a gas oven and you do this, carbon monoxide gas can build up and poison you and your family.

Of course when we are cold and uncomfortable we will try any method to make our homes warm. Just keep in mind the tips that we shared today and know that there are very safe ways as well as completely dangerous ways to produce heat. It is very important to educate yourself as well as your family when it comes to fire hazards. Your Aunt Liz from Florida could be visiting you in Colorado and of course she is not used to any temperatures below fifty degrees. It’s currently negative ten degrees in Colorado and all she is worried about is finding some kind of warmth. Everyone is asleep so she turns on the burners on the stove and then falls back asleep. Next thing you know, the entire family is woken up by flames surrounding the house and you have to follow your emergency escape plan to get out! Of course no one ever wants to go through this experience so please keep these safe heating methods in mind this season!

If you do experience fire damage in your home, call Complete DKI 24/7. Our technicians work around the clock and are always dressed in uniform, will arrive in clearly marked Complete DKI vans and are ready for any emergency! Please contact our full service location on Davis Highway by calling 850-CALL-DKI or 850-225-5354

Complete DKI wishes you all a safe and disaster free winter season!

Tis the season to be jolly! I’m sure that most of us can agree that Christmas is the best time of the year! Christmas trees, beautiful ornaments, houses all around town shining with lights, poinsettias on the front porch and of course a good Christmas meal. It is such a wonderful time of year that sometimes we can be so caught up in the moment that we forget some of the most important fire safety precautions. Did you know that U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 210 home fires per year that  began with Christmas tree fires in 2009-2013? Unfortunately, Christmas trees can be a huge fire hazard so it is up to you to take the correct precautions to ensure that you and your family can have safe and fire-free holiday!

Complete DKI is here to help you this holiday season! Before you start your decorating this year, please take a minute to check out these valuable tips!

  • Before you start hanging up lights on your house, inspect them thoroughly to make sure that they are working properly and don’t have any loose connections or eroded ends. If you do notice a light bulb out, replace them right away!
  • Try not to overload your homes electrical circuits. This can be very dangerous and can cause a fire!
  • To prevent getting electrocuted, use insulated hooks to hang up lights instead of nails or screws.  
  • Always make sure to turn off your Christmas lights before leaving your home or going to bed.
  • Make sure that the lights you are using outside are labeled “outside lights” and the lights you are using inside are labeled “inside lights”.
  • Never place your Christmas tree anywhere near a heat source. Especially a fire place.
  • Christmas trees always look better wrapped in lights, but please do not overload it with them. This can cause your circuits to overload which can lead to a fire.
  • Keeping in mind that your home could possibly suffer from a fire, take precautions and make sure that all exits are clear and your Christmas tree or any other decorations are not blocking any pathways.
  • Natural Christmas trees have a much higher risk for catching fire. If you use an artificial tree, make sure that it is flame retardant.

Let’s face it, we are all so busy this time of the year. We have last minute gift shopping, Christmas parades, work parties, family gatherings and all kinds of different activities to do in such a short amount of time. It is too easy to forget that simple decorations and an innocent little (or big) Christmas tree could start such a huge tragedy. You could be hanging up the Christmas lights outside with your son and maybe he wasn’t aware that you cannot overload the circuits. He plugged one too many light strands in and BOOM, an electrical fire has started. It is so important to educate not only yourself, but your family as well.

If you experience fire damage in your home, call Complete DKI 24/7. Our technicians work around the clock and are always fully prepared in uniforms and clearly marked Complete DKI vans. Our technicians are always professional and presentable! If you experience fire damage, please contact our full service location on Davis Highway by calling 850-CALL-DKI or 850-225-5354.

Complete DKI wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

*REMEMBER… Christmas is the time to kindle a fire in the heart, not in your home!
