We all know how disastrous commercial water damage can be, and how it can impact your business. Acting quickly to mitigate water damage is crucial, which is why it’s important for all businesses to know the common causes of commercial water damage. Here are some major causes of commercial water damage:

1. Broken pipes. Look for any signs of water stains in your walls, it may be from a broken pipe.

2. Leaking sprinkler systems. This is similar to a broken pipe, but at a much larger volume.

3. Damage roof. This requires regular maintenance and inspection of your roof for any damage.

4. Unsealed windows. This will allow moisture to creep into unwanted areas. Like the roof, this requires regular inspection.

Caution Asbestos Hazard

Safety precautions for workers and occupants is our number one priority. Before we can start any demolition after a fire loss, its always important to check to see what year the house was built.

Anything prior to 1986 is required to be tested for lead and asbestos by California State Law. When materials containing lead-asbestos paint are demolished or lead based paint is sanded or scraped, the chips and dust particles from the paint can pose health hazards to anyone breathing or contacting the debris. Materials that are believed to contain asbestos or lead should be tested by a qualified lab. Be sure to consult the insurance adjuster if you suspect asbestos or lead containing materials are present.

Just last weekend, Balboa Peninsula suffered a surprise flooding as a result of a full moon and high tides. By 6 PM, huge waves were crashing over the oceanfront community. It's times like these that remind us why we need to be prepared for the worst. 

Here are a few quick tips if you ever find yourself in a flood situation:

1. Evacuate early if possible. Your safety is more important than any property damage that may ensue.

2. During a flood, stay off bridges or other unstable structures and move to higher ground!

3. Avoid submerging yourself in floodwater as it may contain dangerous debris.

Floods can be scary, but being unprepared is even scarier. Be sure to contact your local SERVPRO for any questions or concerns.

Storm Preparedness

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

While the country has been focused on pandemic safety, it's always a good idea to remember what you will do in an emergency situation such as a storm.

During storm season make sure your doors and windows are secure to prevent any damage from wind or debris. Some damage may be unavoidable, but you can save yourself some time and money by simply closing shutters or covering openings with plywood if the situation calls for it.

Weatherproofing can also be a valuable asset while dealing with a violent storm. Make sure your gutters have been cleaned recently and that your drains aren't experiencing any problems.

If the power goes out, be sure you have a backup generator as well as candles to use. These tips are pretty simple to accomplish but have a lasting effect in the long run.

Stay safe out there and remember to contact your local SERVPRO if you have any questions! We're here for you 24/7.
