Fire or Water?
One of the things I find most interesting about this line of work (restoration and reconstruction) is the inherent ironies that go with it. For instance, I can’t tell you how many fire jobs I have snapped photos at or shot video of in the pouring rain. Another good example of this is visiting a loss wherein a window was broken or a roof was damaged from hurricane speed wind, only to arrive to a still, hot spring afternoon with no movement to speak of.
Now these are admittedly not the norm but when you live in southern California, what exactly is the norm when it comes to odd weather patterns?
That being said, I wanted to remind everyone that just because it hasn’t rained yet¸ rest assured that it most certainly will. At the time of writing this article, it is 68 degrees and sunny but my phone tells me there is rain imminent in the not-too-distant future. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it happen every year.
It is wise to always be cautious with sources of open flame. It is wise to always prepare for floods. It is wise to always keep an eye out for wet spots or mold growth. Most importantly, it is wise to always keep SERVPRO of Chino/Chino Hills on speed dial. In the case of an ironic (or perfectly expected) mishap, rest assured that we have you covered.
