water damage Arroyo Grande

The thing about water damage is that it can be a long and slow process starting with a little leak or a little moisture that is absorbed by a foundation, floors, and walls.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (PRWEB)

Winter storms bring lots of water and water brings leaks, mold, and damage. The Arroyo Grande water damage company, ServPro, has announced that now is the time for spring clean up from winter rain and water damage.

Not all rain and storms cause water damage right away. Fortunately, not every home or business has a leaking roof caused by wind damage or flooding from a storm, but there is a real possibility that future damage from standing water and wet damp areas can happen because the initial situation was not noticed or cleaned up. People tend to overlook the small things when their property escapes major storm damage. An after storm checkup list needs to include:

  • Check the attic or crawl space for any signs of leaks.
  • Check under buildings for signs of mud or standing water.
  • Check ceilings and walls for signs of leaks.
  • Check landscaping, shrubs, and trees near buildings to make sure there is no wet or damp soil.
  • Remove storm debris such as foliage, fallen branches, even old sandbags, or anything else away from buildings.
  • Mow grass and weeds. Not only will this prevent dry overgrowth that can become a fire hazard, mowing lets the sunlight in and dries out areas that would otherwise retain moisture.

The thing about water damage is that it can be a long and slow process starting with a little leak or a little moisture that is absorbed by a foundation, floors, and walls. The next thing we know, mold is growing on the walls or under cabinets, wood is rotted, and we are facing repairs that could have been avoided.

Here are some reasons that a spring inspection and clean up are good preventative measures:

  • Water causes wood to warp and compromise structures such as foundations, walls, ceilings, roofs, and other structural components.
  • Water and moisture cause mold, which can be a serious health risk. The Center for Disease Control reports that mold can be a hazard to children, seniors, and people with respiratory conditions.
  • Moisture can damage electrical systems causing wires to rust and start a fire.
  • Accumulated moisture can damage electronics and other personal possessions.

ServPro of Arroyo Grande is always available, 24/7, to remove mold and water damage, but that old adage about "an ounce of prevention," is true. The staff from ServPro would rather see families and property safe than damaged.

ServPro is a water damage restoration company that is ready to restore homes and businesses back to pre-water damage condition. The local technicians respond quickly to extract water then dry the property using sophisticated moisture monitoring equipment state-of-the-art drying equipment.

Water main break shuts down part of UPEI building - CBC.ca

A water main break that caused minor flooding in the building's basement at the SDU Main Building at UPEI made for an inconvenient exam time for some students and faculty Wednesday.

Discovered early Wednesday morning, the broken pipe meant some exams Wednesday and Thursday have had to be moved to other buildings on campus.

Water and washrooms were shut down in the building for most of the day as well as an elevator which had some water damage. Water was restored late in the afternoon and washrooms reopened, although officials warn the water may not be safe to drink until it is tested — that may happen tomorrow.

Restoration crews were on site cleaning up water in the building's basement. 

Officials at the university described the break as a minor incident. Staff and students were still able to use most areas of the building, and were asked to use washrooms in nearby buildings.

Office and classrooms used by the faculty of arts are affected, as well as the Mature and Part-time University Students Association. Officials said the break did not affect a large number of students.

Any students wondering about their exam schedules should check the MyUPEI student portal, officials said. 

UPEI officials said they expect the cleanup and repairs to take about a week. 

The building was built in 1854 as the first structure of St. Dunstan's College, which replaced St. Andrew's College, according to UPEI's website. 

Water ended up in the basement where crews were mopping it up. (Laura Meader/CBC)

PuroClean | How to Clean Up Your Basement after a Flood - WLNS

Posted: 12 Aug 2019 12:00 AM PDT

Home Improvement

Posted: Updated:

Basement flooding can occur at any time, especially in the spring, when snow melts and spring storms begin. Flooding can occur even in dry weather due to unexpected blockages to the sewer system around your home. If you've experienced basement flooding, it's imperative to deal with the situation immediately. To help you overcome such an emergency, check out this basement flood cleanup guide:

How to clean up a flooded basement

Tackling basement flooding repair yourself is not a good idea, so keep the number of a water damage restoration specialist on hand. However, if you want to handle the problem yourself, here are essential flooded basement repair tips:

Things to do immediately after a basement flood

  • First, make sure that it's safe to enter your home. Check for structural damage, such as cracks, holes or warping.
  • Immediately shut off the electrical supply to your home at the main circuit breaker. Be aware of electrical wires that are under the water level.
  • If the flooding is due to a burst water pipe in your home, shut off the main water supply.
  • Avoid direct contact with floodwater, which may contain dangerous contaminants. If you must walk through floodwater, wear protective clothing, such as disposable overalls, eyewear, gloves, and a face mask.
  • Call your insurance company, take photos, and document all damaged items. Make a list of the belongings to restore and to discard. This will help you with your insurance claim.
  • If you have a sump pump installed, wait for it to drain the floodwater. If the pump has a backup battery, it should drain the water even if the power is off.

Basement flood cleanup tips

  • Quickly remove affected items from floodwater to avoid mold growth, warping, and rot. Items that suck up a lot of water (like carpet and furniture) can usually be salvaged if they have been in floodwater for less than 24 hours. Otherwise, throw them away.
  • Completely dry the basement to avoid further damage and mold growth.
    • Suck up the water with a sump pump and a Wet-Dry vacuum.
    • Use dehumidifiers and ventilate the basement as much as possible. Use fans and open windows if the weather allows, but not when the outside humidity is high.
    • Remove the baseboards (if present) and drill 1-inch holes halfway between the wall studs at the base of the walls. This allows moist air from behind the walls to evaporate.
    • Properly drying a flooded basement may take up to two weeks.
  • After everything has been dried, clean and disinfect the basement contents and structure (walls, foundation floor, drywall, etc.). You may need to discard the drywall and wood if a lot of mold has developed.
  • Don't use bleach to clean mold because bleach kills live mold but not mold spores. Household detergent is preferable.
  • Regardless of the size of the mold-affected area, strongly consider contacting a mold remediation company. They can identify the moisture source and restore the moldy surfaces efficiently and without risk of mold recurrence.
  • Make any necessary repairs, such as filling foundation cracks, replacing damaged drywall with a mold-resistant type, and sealing windows and vents.
  • If your basement has been flooded with sewage, check out our tips to handle sewage backup in a basement.

How to prevent basement flooding

  • Clean your gutters and downspouts and divert rainwater six feet away from the house. Also, make sure the ground is slightly sloping away from your home.
  • Install an emergency generator to provide your house with electricity during blackouts.
  • Install a sump pump that automatically drains water from your basement and prevents water from rising. Choose one with a backup battery.
  • Seal openings or cracks in the walls, floors, foundations, and windows of your house.
  • Install porous pavement around your home to help absorb rainwater and thawed snow.
  • Ensure that your drainage systems and plumbing are working properly. Have them checked periodically by a professional.
  • Read more tips to prevent basement water damage and check out the top causes of basement flooding.
