Children in costumes celebrate Halloween. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in San Bernardino County.

Our teams in Chino/Chino Hills want everyone in Los Serranos to have a fun a s safe Halloween celebration this year. Here are some Halloween safety tips from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection:

Tips for Halloween night

  • Use battery-powered lights - never use candles to light jack-o’-lanterns
  • Instruct children to stay away from open flames
  • Remove objects from the yard that present a hazard to children (garden tools, hoses, etc.)
  • Be extremely careful with cornstalks and other harvest season items. Keep them away from sources of heat. Don’t let them block doorways or stairs.
  • Do not allow children to carry sharp sticks or other objects that could cause injury to themselves or to others
  • If you are driving on Halloween, take care…watch out for trick-or-treaters who will be too busy to watch out for you
  • Closely inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Discard any unwrapped treats from a stranger. If in doubt, throw it out.

Tips for choosing the right costumes

  • Purchase costumes made of flame-retardant material
  • Keep hemlines short enough to prevent tripping and avoid loose, baggy sleeves, or billowing skirts
  • To be seen easily, costumes should be made of a light color material
  • Use glow-in-the-dark reflective tape on your costume
  • Use make-up rather than masks, which could obstruct vision

Repair your Roof

9/1/2022 (Permalink)

One of the most frequent calls we receive during our rainy season is to tarp a roof that is letting water into the home.  You should inspect your roof every year to check for any damage. Ensure to repair any cracked, displaced or broken tiles. You should also remove any dirt that has built up underneath the tiles to prevent drainage blockage. It would be best if you also replaced or repaired damaged roof sheeting. More importantly, also, ensure to inspect the inside of your roofing. If there is light shining through your roof, it could indicate a damaged roof. It's not easy to work on the roof on your own. So, it's important to contact an expert who understands everything to do with roof maintenance and repair.
