Heavy Rains in March caused Water Damage in nearby Riverside City

5/11/2020 (Permalink)

4 photos depicting black mold on a ceiling, and plaster on the white walls lifting. This was the damage that resulted from a water leak from rain last month.

Rainfall and colder than usual weather going into March, is not something Californians are used to. 

Californians experienced wetter than normal conditions into March that led us into our Stay-at-Home order.  Many experienced water leaks and flooding due to this rainfall.  One home owner, and business owner of Kulture Konnect, felt the effects at her place of business and also at her home. 

Niki's work location began with a leak and turned into a stream of water coming through her office ceiling panels.  SERVPRO of West Riverside City, inspected the leak and provided guidance.  As for her home, we were able to inspect using photos, then performed an onsite inspection.  Why address water damage right away?

The initial dangers of a roof leak are damage to the attic area. If there is no attic, or the size of the leak is really big, it will damage the interior ceiling. Affected ceiling paint will darken and ceiling plaster may bubble and expand. The leaking water will also damage paint and plaster on nearby walls. You can also expect damage on ceiling-mounted lights and fans.

Did you know that secondary damage can occur after water damage in your home or commercial building?  If water damage is not properly treated, the perfect environment is created for mold spores to grow in your home and to contaminate the air that is breathed.

After water leaks,  a home or business can develop mold from the moisture.  Black mold is the most common type resulting from chronic water intrusion. Toxic black mold growth is rare, but even non-toxic, black mold attacks wood framing, ceiling tiles, walls and floor coverings. Mold is difficult to get rid of, and can be costly.

 A roof leak repair should take the highest priority on your list of home maintenance issues.

It is crucial that the source of the leak is fixed to make sure that it does not happen again.

It may be hard to identify but this is one of the most important steps of restoration.

Roofing leaks can develop for a variety of reasons: improper roof installation, wind or storm damage, and lack of maintenance. Keep in mind that most roofs are only meant to last 20 to 30 years so it could simply be time to replace your roof.

SERVPRO of West Riverside City strives to prevent secondary damage every time we remediate water damage. Building material and flooring are dried and treated to prevent mold and other allergens/contaminates using specialized equipment and cleaning products.

In Niki's home SERVPRO of West Riverside City contained the area to begin the drying process.  We use scientific drying methods to draw remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.  Then we clean and sanitize.  Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. SERVPRO of West Riverside can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also sanitize with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Our SERVPRO of West Riverside City team can work directly with your insurance provider to make the claim process simple.
