fire season
 

Recently, the Phoenix area has had some smoke and un-

healthy air quality due to the five nearby wildfires burning 

throughout the Valley. All of the fires are sending smoke 

billowing into the atmosphere, making it very unhealthy to 

breathe. 

 

Fire managers throughout the state are spreading the word on how to prevent this year's wildland fires from spreading to your homes and businesses. Little things like clearing out fuels from around your home and keeping your grass mowed can really help protect your property. Take special care to thoroughly remove extra yard brush, especially buffelgrass, a plant that burns hot and fast, making desert fires even more treacherous. 

 

In the event your property is damaged by fire, be sure to follow these guidelines to help minimize damage:

  • Call ServiceMaster All Care Restoration right away. Corrosive fumes and soot from smoke and fire can cause permanent etching in less than 72 hours.
  • Open windows and doors to help air out your home and reduce smoke odors.
  • Clean chrome, formica, aluminum and porcelain fixtures to prevent tarnishing and etching.
  • If your furnace uses forced hot air, change the air filter.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over important documents to capture loose soot in the air.
  • Dispose of any opened packages of food.
  • If the electricity is off, clean out the refrigerator and leave doors propped open.
  • Send any clothing with heavy smoke damage to a qualified restoration dry cleaner for thorough cleaning
IIAGP Golf Tournament
  In Our Community

 

  

This month some of our lucky marketers were able to attend The Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Greater Phoenix (IIAGP)  25th annual fundraising Golf Tournament, which was played at the Wildfire Golf Club in Desert Ridge on May 6th.

 

While the wind was pretty intense (and actually blew over the tent), it was all for a good cause. The proceeds of the event were donated to the Phoenix Fire Department for the benefit of their Car Seat Safety Program (CARS).

 

The IIAGP is a professional association of members from many different insurance companies. Each year, thousands of dollars are donated to CARS and this tournament demonstrates the commitment to give back to the community and to enhance the quality of life for those in need.

 

 Shown is our own Mike Benner, Stuart Dille and Dave Wooden.

Air Scrubbers
   Cool Stuff That Works



Air Scrubbers clean your air, remove unwanted odors as well as the toxins that cause them. They work to filter the air and remove particles which may include mold, spores, soot, smoke or dust. 

Air Scrubbers utilize the power of high efficiency air filtration (HEPA) to eliminate odor particles from the air and create an environment safe for breathing.
