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.

When it comes to storms, we really don’t ever know exactly what we are going to get. Even though we might think that the next storm brewing will be something small, we still always need to be prepared. Tornado’s are a very strong force of nature and we don’t ever really have that much notice before one hits. Complete DKI has partnered up with the new Red Cross Emergency App that is now available on all smartphones, tablets and the Apple Watch. This app is great to have in case of any kind of emergency. It’s free and gives you the access to have vital emergency information at your fingertips. Along with the app, we have some great tips on preparedness as well as cleanup information for you and your family.

  • Know the difference! tornado watch is when a tornado is very likely to occur in the area. Always make sure your family knows where the safe room is and has all the needed supplies in case of an emergency. A tornado warning is when a tornado has been spotted or a weather radar is showing signs of one in the area. This means your life and your property could be in great danger and it is important to seek immediate shelter.
  • Always listen to your local radio station during any kind of emergency to keep up to date with the storm and to be informed about what may be a threat to your safety.
  • It is important for your family to have a designated safe room and to make sure everyone is on the same page. This safe room needs to be able to fit you and your family as well as pets; No windows at all and preferably a basement or room on the lowest level.
  • Make sure to gather up anything outside that could become a projectile (including dead branches on trees) and possibly hurt you or your property.
  • After a tornado, make sure to stay out of damaged buildings and watch out for anything that could cause harm. (power lines, broken glass, busted gas lines)
  • If you have pets, make sure they are under control. Try to keep them on leashes or in kennels if possible to avoid any injury.
  • If anything in your home has spilled that could possibly be a fire hazard, properly clean up the mess immediately.
  • It is important to document any damage that has taken place on your property for insurance claims.

Most of the time, a tornado or a huge storm is not the first thing that is on our minds. We don’t really think about it until it’s right here staring us in the face. That is how fatalities and other serious injuries unfortunately can occur. Did you know that tornado’s caused an average of 70 fatalities and 1,500 injuries in the U.S. alone each year? They are very serious storms and should never be taken lightly. Just imagine, Johnny’s Red Cross Emergency App warned him one very early morning that there was a tornado warning in the area. So this means, there has been one sighted and it can be dangerous. Well, Johnny chose to ignore the alert and went back to sleep. He was abruptly woken up by his roof being torn off by the strong force of the tornado and his only shelter is under his mattress in his room.  This is something that no one ever wants to experience so that is why it is so important to be prepared and have a safety plan!  If you experience 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.
