Holiday seasons bring cheer and warmth when family gathers for good food and memories. Turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and so much more fill the table and the air. How do you cook your turkey? The popular way is outdoors using a turkey fryer, but do you know how to operate the fryer properly?

Here are the do’s and don’ts of frying your turkey for the holiday.


  • ONLY use a turkey that has completely thawed.
  • Make sure the surface you are placing the fryer on is level and at least 10 feet away from any flammable materials, including buildings.
  • Follow the instruction manual when using the fryer, paying close attention to the amount of to use.
  • Frequently use and monitor the oil temperature with the appropriate thermometer.


  • NEVER use a frozen turkey.
  • Do not overfill the fryer with oil. If the oil spills over and touches the heating element/flame it will combust and can possibly cause serious harm to an individual or the surroundings.
  • NEVER use water to extinguish an oil fire. This will cause the fire to splatter and spread.

We all want to enjoy our holiday time with friends and family, eating amazing food and creating new memories.

Preparation of Your Water Pipes During Cold Weather

Water Damage Preparation of Your Water Pipes During Cold Weather (541) 265-7777 when you have water, fire, mold, biohazard damage or disasters

Approximately 1 in 5 homes will suffer some form of water damage during frigid temperatures. The leading cause is frozen pipes not properly insulated. No matter the age of your home, before the cold weather strikes make sure to inspect your pipes. Catching the problem before it becomes a disaster will save your money and stress.

We all know that the freezing temperature is 32 degrees Fahrenheit and if your pipes are not properly insulated, it can take only a few minutes for the water to freeze completely. If you find yourself with frozen pipes DO NOT use hot water! This will cause the pipe to burst from the sudden temperature change. 

During extreme cold temperatures it is best to maintain a slow drip from your water faucets. This will keep the water running and less likely to freeze. Standing water freezes faster because there is no movement. When you keep your faucets open you will be less likely to have a water disaster.

Broken pipes can cause varying degrees of water damage in your home or business. Make sure to take precautionary steps to limit the chance of damage.

SERVPRO® of Lincoln & Polk Counties is ready to go if your home or business is under a water attack (internal or external). We operate 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We are there for any size job! Call us (541) 265-7777 during or after a water disaster and we will restore your property quickly.
