Inside The Action: Drying Irwindale Residences

7/9/2020 (Permalink)

The key to drying out a residence after flooding occurs is simple: heat. However, raising temperatures can cause concerns for the homeowner. A common thought many individuals have is to turn on the central heating. Warming the house will combat water damage, right? Actually, raising the temperature inside of a damp, enclosed space can raise the humidity. Air has a limit on how much moisture it can hold, so warming different rooms actually risks slowing the drying process. In fact, untreated wet indoor spaces can advocate for accelerated mold growth.

SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park offers professional flood damage services locally here in Irwindale and surrounding cities. We understand that floods caused by storms are alarming and can cause serious financial hardship if not treated properly. SERVPRO utilizes an advanced water pumping method and specialized equipment to swiftly dry your indoor space. Our technicians combine hot air (to increase the evaporation rate) with dry air (to maximize effectiveness) using our indirect-fired furnaces. Our furnaces take the air from outside of your home and blow hot air inside through the windows. This air exchange has been repeatedly proven to dry homes faster and reduce the risk of mold growth. While this method is highly effective, it also requires consistent monitoring.

The SERVPRO team of Irwindale/Baldwin Park is committed to walking alongside the consumer the entire process, until the flooding is “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today to learn more about our drying process anytime (626) 337-3374.

Stress Free Family Weekend Getaway

7/2/2020 (Permalink)

A secluded weekend getaway with your family may be tempting after being in quarantine for the past four months. Before you head out, it’s essential that you check all faucets and appliances to avoid coming home to an unfortunate surprise. There’s nothing worse than escaping stress for a few days, just to come home to a flooded bathroom or a leaking ceiling. Water damage can spread vast and quickly become costly if left unattended for several days. A few common things that can go undetected include dripping water heaters, clogged pipes with built up pressure, leaking faucets or appliances, etc. SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park offers the Vincent community four tips for you in case you need to travel out of town for a few days.

  • Switch Off The Water 

Shutting off your water main can help avert water pressure build up in your pipelines. Doing this lessens the chance of leaks because leaks normally occur when a stoppage develops.

  • Inspect Your Appliances

Devices such as dishwashers, washers, fridges, and dryers tend to leak from time to time. Occasionally inspecting these appliances and replacing broken parts can reduce the cost and risk of a major emergency later on. 

  • Clear Up Your Rain Gutters

Rain often finds its way into homes through clogged rain gutters. Clearing away debris within them can help prohibit built up blockage.

  • Neighborly Check In

Having a trusted friend or neighbor check in on your home while you’re away can help detect leaks early. While they may not be able to stop water damage from occurring, they can inform you or perhaps call SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park so the leak doesn’t get worse. Having someone trustworthy watching your house can contribute to the much needed peace of mind hardworking individuals need.

SERVPRO wishes the Irwindale, Baldwin Park, Vincent and surrounding communities safety and security during unprecedented times. We are here for all your water, fire, storm, and commercial needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park at (626) 337-3374.

Prepared For the Unexpected

While no one can really be fully prepared when an emergency happens or disaster strikes, there are proactive steps you can take to help you, your family, and your business be as prepared as possible in the case of an emergency. 

First steps 

Communication as a first step can make a huge difference in the stress that can come when a disaster hits. Sitting down with friends, family, your household or co-workers and talking through the details of a plan is a good start to making sure everyone is on the same page. Some ideas to consider discussing could be  

  • What are our current ways of receiving warnings and alerts? How will we continue to receive these warnings after a disaster or emergency? 
  • What is our plan for shelter in case anything should happen to our home? 
  • Is everyone clear on an evacuation route? 
  • What is our plan as a family/household or business for communication? 

Assess Your Specific Needs 

This can be daunting but in case of an emergency, it is always best to be prepared than caught even more so off guard. If there are family members, household members, or co-workers that have certain dietary or medical needs make sure you have that necessary food or medicine on hand. If your household has pets, make sure you know the plan for them as well in the case of an emergency. Make sure you either have what they need or have a plan to get them into temporary care.  

Most Importantly 

In case of an emergency or disaster, make sure that above all, you, your family, your household, or your business are somewhere safe. Whether it’s a fire, flood, or earthquake, make sure to contact emergency services as soon as possible and do not try to handle the situation on your own.
