Happy Thanksgiving and Safe Turkey Frying Tips from Paul Davis Restoration Louisville


safe turkey frying tipsEvery year around this time, we like to tell our community two things.

Number one: Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Enjoy your time off eating, relaxing, visiting with friends and family, watching basketball or football, and shopping.

This time of year is a great time to count our blessings and make a list of things we’re grateful for.

At Paul Davis Restoration, we’re grateful for our community of agents, adjustors, fire departments, suppliers, vendors, contractors, and employees who make what we do possible.

The second thing we always like to share is turkey frying safety resources.

Many of you might not realize that Thanksgiving has one of the highest rates of fire as noted here by the NFPA.

We don’t want to put a damper on your turkey preparations, but just want you to be safe. Check out these Turkey frying tips from Lifehacker and a video from William Shatner on the topic.

Holiday Home Fire Safety Tips from Paul Davis Restoration


Tis the season for holiday fun. Family gatherings, entertaining, and festive decorations are among the highlights of the holiday season.

However, sometimes the holiday season brings unexpected risks into your home. According to the United States Fire Administration , during the Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s season, there is an elevated risk for home fires due to extensive cooking, decorations, home heating, and open flames.

Paul Davis Restoration Louisville has a few tips we’d like to share with you to make the holidays safe for you and your family:

Holiday Decorations: Decorate with non-combustible or flame-resistant materials. Never use lighted candles on a tree, evergreens, or other flammable materials. Don’t place candles near children, pets, or gift wrapping.

Lights: Make sure there are no frayed wires, broken sockets, or loose connections. Check labels to be sure about the proper use of indoor and outdoor lights. Don’t overload electrical outlets.

Trees: Cut a few inches off the trunk of a live tree and fill the stand with water to keep it from drying out and becoming a fire hazard. An artificial tree should be labeled “Fire Resistant.” Place trees away from fireplaces, radiators, or portable heaters.

Fire Escape Plan: Make sure everyone understands the escape routes and where to meet once outside.

Smoke Alarms: Make sure your smoke alarms are in proper working order and change the batteries at least twice a year.

Fire Extinguishers: Make sure there is a working fire extinguisher in the kitchen, laundry room, and garage. Learn how to use the fire extinguisher.

Fireplace/Chimney: Have your fireplace and chimney inspected and cleaned by a professional chimney sweep. Never burn greens, boughs, papers, or other decorations in the fireplace. Check to see that the flue is open before starting a fire.

Keep a list with important emergency phone numbers: Include police and fire departments, doctors, and the national poison help line.

In case of emergency property damage, give us a call and we’ll step in to immediately handle the restoration for you.

Emergency Response from Paul Davis Restoration Louisville


iStock 000016966912XSmallPaul Davis Restoration Louisville has an emergency response team ready and waiting to help when the time comes. Because we work closely with the fire departments in the area, you can be sure that if you ever have an emergency and need help, our crew will be on the scene to provide assistance and help restore your home or business as fast as possible.

Our Emergency Responder, Brian Vogel, started with us April 1st of this year. Brian was a victim of a fire, last November, and that gives him a unique perspective and experience that is helpful to those victims that are wondering “what happens now?”.

Finding a reputable company that you can trust during such a stressful and emotionally charged time can be difficult. Up until a few years ago, “fire chasing” did not exist in Louisville, but it has become common. Some of the contractors that respond to fire emergencies have not been ethical in their approach. Paul Davis Restoration is different. We think we have a valuable and needed service to offer.

When Brian arrives on the scene, he offers to fire victims: board up services to secure the property from vandals; emergency laundry services to provide clean clothes right away; blankets and personal care products; and information – all at no obligation. Brian has listings for temporary living quarters, kennels, and insurance company contacts. Yes, we would eventually like to restore the property and we need to procure some business in order to continue to provide the gratis emergency services, but we don’t hard sell. That’s just not how we operate.
