2 Ways Water Can Get in During a Storm.

Well equipped to handle any size disaster

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills Tips for Storm Damage -

Yes, there are 2 ways water can get into your home, office, or warehouse. From the top and from the bottom. If it comes in the property from the roof it is usually because of faulty shingles or gutters that were not cleaned.  Please clean your gutters!  The damage is definitely an inconvenience but, fortunately, it is usually covered under your insurance policy.

If it enters from the base of the property, it is called groundwater infiltration and this type of water damage is most likely not going to be covered by your insurance policy. You will need to make sure the drainage works all around when preparing for winter storms.  But make no mistake about it, the damage needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible. 

What to do:

Start by turning off the power in that area. (remember electricity and water are a bad combination) Be sure you know what you are doing.  Remove the standing water by using a wet/dry vacuum, mopping it up, or using a sump pump. If you have fans, bring those in to circulate the air and dry out the space. Hint: If there is any evidence of mold, do not use the fans since this will spread the spores. If the water level can be measured in inches, you need to call in a professional.  The water remediation professionals at SERVPRO of Woodland Hills have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to make it, “Like it never even happened.”

Pet Storm Preparedness tips from SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda -

Most dog and cat owners don't have disaster preparedness plans for their pets. SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda urges you to make sure this isn’t you.

You would make a disaster kit for yourself and family, so make one for your pet. This includes medical records and medication, food and water with can openers, leashes, and carriers.

Tips:

  • Bring pets indoors at the first sign of a storm. Animals can become confused and inadvertently run away from home during a disaster.
  • Arrange a safe haven for you and your pets during evacuation. Do not leave pets behind.
  • Store an emergency kit—with items such as pet food, bottled water, medical records, a blanket, a flashlight and leashes—as close to an exit as possible.
  • Make sure all pets wear collars and tags. Also have your pet microchipped in case of a lost collar. 
  • Place a rescue alert sticker to your front home to let rescuers know that there are pets inside.
  • Choose a caregiver to take care of your pet in the event you are unable to.
