Signs of Water Damage in Your Home

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

Water damage is a tremendous hazard and occurs far more frequently than many realize. It can happen in virtually every home and at any time, resulting in an array of problems. A simple leak can cause severe structural damage if not correctly handled and repaired that worsens over time.

Your home is not only at risk for structural damage, as mold can swiftly begin growing if water damage has taken place. Water damage can be tricky to spot as it is not always apparent to the naked eye. In some instances, it can be obvious, but often times it develops gradually and subtly.

Here are a few things to look out for if you suspect water damage.

1. Dark or wet spots

Watch for discoloration, such as watermarks on the ceiling and the interior and exterior walls of your home.

2. Crackling, bubbling, or flaking

If the drywall or paint on your ceiling or walls is beginning to crack, bubble, or flake, water damage could be present.

3. Pooling water or puddles

Persistent leaks and ongoing drips can result in pools of water. If a puddle appears after it is tended to, it could convey that there is a presence of a leak.

4. Increase in utility bills

If you've noticed your water bill has suddenly spiked, it may be a sign of a hidden leak.

5. Damp, musty, or moldy smell

Damp, musty, or moldy smells can be a significant indicator of water damage. Dampness carries a distinctive odor that is hard to ignore. The smell is often accompanied by the presence of mold, which brings water damage.

4 Commercial Mold Prevention Tips

3/9/2021 (Permalink)

Remove the associated risks of mold by following these four tips for prevention within your commercial property: 

1. Keep an eye out: Mold can be difficult to spot and is present almost everywhere, including indoors and outdoors. It is crucial to create a routine inspection plan, explicitly searching for mold signs. Mold spores thrive on moisture, and initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

2. Decrease moisture: Your commercial buildings' geographic location can spread mold spores. This factor depends on the humidity, and higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Therefore, it is essential to keep indoor humidity below 45 percent. Since damp air spawns mold growth, dehumidifiers are a great option to reduce mold risk.

3. Take the initiative: If you suspect mold, turn off the HVAC systems and fans in your commercial property. Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your building through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems. 

4. Bring in an expert: To effectively prevent mold from growing, it requires a mold remediation specialist, such as SERVPRO of Petaluma/Rohnert Park/Santa Rosa. We can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Commercial Storm Damage Restoration

2/23/2021 (Permalink)

Mother Nature can strike at anytime and at any place.  When a severe storm blows through, it can bring with it heavy rain, flooding, high winds, lightning, hail, and even tornadoes.  The damage that storms can inflict on buildings will vary depending on the type and severity of the storm.  Some of the potential kinds of damage that different storms can cause are cracked or shattered windows, roof damage from hail, damage from fallen branches/trees or even water damage from flooding.   If that damage isn’t repaired quickly, interior damage, mold, and damage to equipment and inventory can follow - not to mention the disruption caused for your employees and customers.  The costs of repairs to commercial buildings in particular are likely to be substantial due to the high concentration of glass used in these structures. Without the full and timely payment of insurance benefits, rebuilding and repairing can be prohibitively expensive.

SERVPRO of Petaluma/Rohnert Park understands that severe weather can happen without notice and cause water damage to your commercial property.  As a trusted restoration company, we’re dedicated to responding immediately to water and storm damage emergencies.  We have the experience and advanced training that enables us to restore your property quickly.
