SERVPRO of North Pensacola Wishes Everyone a Happy, Safe, and Fun Holiday Weekend
Thanksgiving is upon us, and SERVPRO® of North Pensacola wishes you a fun and safe day full of food and friendship.
SERVPRO of North Pensacola is owned and operated by Panhandle Floridians, just like you. We hope for a sunny day; maybe we can cook and eat outdoors. We hope the storms take a well-deserved break (or give us a well-deserved break).
We hope the holiday is not marred by storms, fire, pets eating the pumpkin pie, or excessive messiness.
If Disaster Strikes, Call the Professionals
We are always available to provide remediation and restoration from disaster. Emergencies don’t pay attention to schedules. They can strike at any time, which is why we are available at any time.
All team members participate in training and have direct experience in the remediation and restoration services homes may require, including:
- Mold mitigation
- Upholstery cleaning and restoration
- Water extraction (whether standing or trapped as humidity)
- Dry out furniture, textiles, electronics
- Remove smoke damage
- Restore flooring, window coverings, other belongings from smoke or water damage
- Replace damaged drywall, carpet, tile
- Replace damaged roof shingles
If there is something you need that is not on the list, just ask. We usually can help.
Stay Safe in the Kitchen (or at the Grill)
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) does research on causes of fire in the United States as well as prevention and how to fight them.
Among other findings, they learned:
- Most home fires start in the kitchen
- “Lack of attention” is the most common cause of cooking fires
- Thanksgiving Day is the biggest day for house fires, probably because there is so much cooking and so many distractions
- The day before Thanksgiving comes in second for number of house fires
- Working smoke detectors save lives
- Having a fire extinguisher in the kitchen may help prevent a fire from getting out of control

Ideas for Using Leftovers
You could, of course, eat leftovers straight from the fridge, but stealth snacking and sandwich making aren’t the only options.
- Leftover mashed potatoes as the topping in a cottage pie
- Mash any leftover root veggies to use a topping – potatoes don’t have to get all the glory
- Shred turkey and mix it with black beans and vegetables
- For anyone who ends up with loads of different cheeses left from the appetizers: grate it all, mix with sour cream or yogurt, add seasonings of choice and you have cheese dip!
- Leftovers quiche – eggs and cheese combine well with almost anything – if you don’t want to use a pie crust, just skip it for a crustless quiche
