Water intrusion and damage can be a headache inside your home or business. Are you prepared for the rain?

Before rain you should clean rain gutters, check your roof for maintenance, and check all windows (if caulking around your windows were not sealed correctly or weather has caused deterioration, water can be leaking into your walls).

Water damage can be difficult to spot but some signs you can look for in your home and business. Such as; your walls and ceiling. See if there is water rings and if the paint and drywall are soft or sagging. If so, most likely there is water damage. The best thing to do is call an expert right away before the problem gets worse.

Keeping an eye out and taking care of these before a rain storm is ideal, but we know it’s not always possible in people’s busy lives. If you do have water intrusion inside your home, SERVPRO of North Highlands / Rio Linda is available with emergency services 24/7.

Common Mold Locations in Your Home or Business

9/16/2022 (Permalink)

Mold spores are constantly floating around just about everywhere. As a result of this, and given the right conditions, mold may show up in your home or business at any time. Even if you maintain a general level of cleanliness around your property, mold will still find the conditions it needs to survive and spread.

Bathroom

  • Anywhere there is moisture, mold can be present
  • Check your shower, this means grout, any products, small spaces, or above the shower area
  • Under your sink, you may not notice that a pipe has started to leak creating a perfect environment for mold
  • Leaking in your shower or bathtub may also go unnoticed and cause mold to grow beneath these items

Living Room

  • Check for mold under carpets, spilled drinks or food can offer mold a prime place for growth
  • Window seals, water may become trapped and give mold an ideal environment for growth
  • Brickwork, an exposed chimney or other brickwork can allow moisture to be trapped in between bricks, giving rise to mold growth

Kitchen

  • Your fridge may be hiding mold under, or behind it
  • Garbage can will often have moisture and plenty of food for mold to thrive on, check the container and lid for mold growth

After checking these places, if you still suspect mold growth, call SERVPRO of North Highlands / Rio Linda to have professionals inspect your home. Call us today at (916) 991-1522.

How Our Storm Restoration Services Help You

9/12/2022 (Permalink)

Hail Hail after a storm.

When your home sustains storm damage, it's important to schedule storm restoration services as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to your house.

When water enters your home, it's crucial to quickly address water damage before it becomes a bigger problem. If water is left to sit on your flooring, inside your walls, or on your books or other objects, it can cause irreparable damage and cause a hefty repair bill. Calling a 24/7 storm restoration company as soon as possible helps to mitigate these problems and get your home back in working order quickly before mold growth or drywall damage occurs.

Hail Damage Can Cause Broken Windows, Remove Roof Shingles, & Deteriorate Your Property

When hail strikes during a severe thunderstorm, it can cause massive damage to your home depending on how large the hail was and for how long it fell. If hail damage is ignored, you may see your roof structure weaken over time, especially if damaged or removed shingles aren't repaired in a timely manner. Your overall property structure can also deteriorate as the entire structure may be weakened after hail falls on it. Storm restoration services include repairing any hail damage that was incurred. 

At SERVPRO North Highlands/ Rio Linda, call us 24/7 at 916-991-1522. We always have someone available to answer your call.  

Call the Professionals When You Have Soot Damage

9/5/2022 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.

Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.

The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of North Highlands / Rio Linda will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
