2018 Hurricane Names
Always Be Prepared For Storms
Every Hurricane season the National Hurricane Center releases a list of names, in alphabetical order, to be used for hurricanes and tropical storms.
Even though this year’s list of names don’t sound very fierce, please always adhere to the warnings your weather stations and local governments put out. Make sure you are always prepared for these storms. The storm may not hit your area directly but there could be residual damages.
Here are the names for the Atlantic Hurricane Season of 2018:
Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sara, Tony, Valerie, and William.
There are six lists, so a name can recur once every six years, so these names cannot be used again until 2024. When a hurricane is especially memorable or devastating, that name is retired, and another hurricane name replaces it.
If you are in need of storm damage cleanup give SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls a call at 732-536-7555.

Hidden Fire Dangers
Fire loss in Tinton Falls, NJ
Knobs on the front of your kitchen stove/oven can be very dangerous. SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls has recently encountered a couple fires caused by dogs jumping up on the stove to reach food and accidentally turn on the stove by hitting the knob. These fires caused lots of damage because the homeowners were not home at the time. It is good practice not to leave any items on the stove or in close proximity. Another way to ensure your pets don’t turn on the knobs is to remove them from the stove if you are leaving the house or at night while sleeping. We all love our furry little family members so let’s help them to not be tempted to grab for those pizza boxes left on the stove.

Ways to melt Ice and Snow
Iced Covered Parking Lot in Marlboro, NJ.
De-icing methods have been used a lot in the last few weeks. There are several different types of methods that can be used.
- Most common is Sodium Chloride know as rock salt. It can damage concrete, metal and pollute river, lakes and streams so this is probably the least likely one you would want to use.
- Calcium Chloride comes in round pellets and if your hands are wet during application they can become irritated.
- One of the better choices is Potassium Chloride and it is not a skin irritant and doesn’t harm vegetation.
- New to the group is Magnesium Chloride and it will melt ice and snow till -13F. This is also less damaging to concrete and vegetation.
Remember to always read the manufacturer’s safety directions and guidelines for these products. These products also can be messy so if you feel like not cleaning up after give us a call, 732-546-7555 SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls.
