The different types of storm damage, which one is the worst?

12/1/2021 (Permalink)

Often it isn’t until a storm hits your home that a homeowner understands that there is an array of types of storm damage.

From wind damage, to tree damage, rain damage, and of course heat damage, they all vastly differ from one another…but these are all areas our team of professional experts has knowledge and experience with.

Now, to answer your question, which type of storm damage is the worst? Well, to be transparent, wind and rain damage often go hand in hand; and if you have a tree in your yard during a major storm, it can cause much damage to your home or property as well.

In sunny Southern California, which is where SERVPRO of Chino / Chino Hills is located, along with many of our clients, properties in our area often experience lots of heat damage.

Did you know that extreme heat can be as harmful to your roof as other extreme weather conditions, such as a storm?

With the sun beating on the roof of your home for prolonged periods, months on end in SoCal, it can cause your roof’s tiles or shingles to curl up, crack, and age prematurely.

If you’ve noticed any curling or cracking of tiles or shingles on your roof, reach out to our team as soon as possible.

Flooding

10/4/2021 (Permalink)

Hundreds of thousands of homes experience water damage every single year across the United States.

Although in Southern California, we’ve been faced with droughts for quite some time, we are never really in the clear. The next big storm can come in minutes and significantly damage your property via leaks in the roof, flash flooding or ground water which can cause flooding, mold, and more.

About one in 50 insured homes endure property damage from rain or freezing temperatures every single year.

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to prevent rain and storms from coming our way, but we can be prepared and equip our clients with important information and contacts for when this problem arises at your property.

For more information, call SERVPRO of Chino/Chino Hills at (909) 548-3191.

What to do if a Fire starts

8/29/2021 (Permalink)

If a fire starts in your property, it’s important to ACT fast…and it’s imperative that you and your family understand what to do if this happens to your home.

First, make sure everyone in the home is aware that there is a fire, yell, “Fire!” and demand that every person evacuates the home. Designate a member of your family to call 911.

When evacuating your home, if heavy smoke is present, get low (underneath the smoke) and exit. Avoid touching doors where knobs are hot to the touch; evacuate through another route if you can.

Fires move quickly, so it’s important for all adult household members to know how to use a fire extinguisher. If the fire is sizable, unleash the fire extinguisher, but if the fire has traveled to multiple parts of the home, quickly evacuate.

Many homeowners don’t know this, but your local fire department can show you how to properly use a fire extinguisher, fill it up and inspect it for any possible malfunctions.

Inspect your property after Fire

8/29/2021 (Permalink)

After a fire ravishes through your home or building, it's essential to inspect your property, but it's even more important to remain safe in the process.

When visiting your property after it's damaged by fire, do not walk past ANY colored tape on doors, windows, walls, etc., unless directed to do so by authorities; this is for your safety.

If you have any children, we recommend you leave them with a relative or friend while completing the personal home inspection to mitigate any more distress this experience may cause them.

What to look for in the inspection

In this process, professionals will inspect your property, but they will have you (the owner) visit the site to assess the damages soon after.

When inspecting your property after a fire, you should:

  • Check for structural damage
  • Access utilities and major systems
  • Inspect electrical, plumbing, and heating systems
  • Eliminate household items and cleaning products

"Contact your insurance agent. Do not discard damaged goods until an inventory has been taken. Save receipts for money spent relating to fire loss. Your insurance agent may provide immediate help with living expenses until you are able to return home and may offer assistance for repairs."

Waterfalls

Waterfall in Ouray CO This ones a beauty in Ouray CO

Who doesn’t love to look at and listen to a beautiful waterfall? I know I do. When on vacations I try to find them just to go relax and take in the soothing ambiance. What isn’t so great about a waterfall, is when its in your home. Not in the form of a natural beauty, but in the form of gushing water from a pipe burst or overflown toilet, sink or tub on the 2nd floor of your home.

This type of “waterfall” can make your home a disaster in no time and you need to mitigate quickly. The first thing to do of course is find the source of the “waterfall” and stop it, whether that be to pull the drain plug and turn off the faucet or turn the water off at the main into the home – but get it stopped. Secondly, make sure everyone in the home is safe and then your next call should be SERVPRO of Chino/Chino Hills. Our trained professionals will come in and remove the water, assess the damages and begin the dry down process so you can get your home back to preloss conditions.
