Make Lightning Fires a Non-Threat to Your Home | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

10/5/2022 (Permalink)

When you have fire safety equipment in your home, you can feel secure that both your physical property and your family are safe. Most home fires can be prevented; however, some natural causes simply can’t be stopped and could threaten your home.

In 2020, there were 70,000 lightning strike damage claims filed, and lightning is predicted to strike 6,000 times every minute, every day. These numbers are a great indicator that we should all be prepared all the time.

What Is Lightning?

When a current of electrical energy between the clouds and the ground forms, a giant spark is released called lightning. Lightning can be found in thunderstorms, volcanic eruptions, wildfires and heavy snows.

Dry lightning is another form of this giant spark that occurs when there is no rain. This is particularly dangerous in drier areas as it is a frequent wildfire starter.

Threats from this form of severe weather vary seasonally and peak at different times around the nation, but are something we should always be prepared for.

Protecting Your Home From Lightning Fires

Lightning will likely leave behind a lot of damages when it hits your home, including putting you at risk for fire. Fires can start two ways, due to the heat of the strike itself or from a surge of electricity that the strike generates through your wiring.

When a fire starts from the strike, it may not know it right away. These kinds of fires typically start in the attic or inside a wall where a smoke detector may not be able to pick up on it.

You should hear the strike hit your house, though. When lightning strikes, it makes a very loud bang. Once you have recovered from the shock of such a loud noise, check for signs of burning.

If you smell smoke or notice black burn marks, call the fire department right away. And work with an electrician after the all-clear has been given in order to avoid another potential fire from damaged wiring.

Consider a lightning rod for your roof in order to protect your home from lightning. This solid pole will take the electricity of a strike and conduct it into the ground, saving you from enduring the full surge.

A whole-home surge protector is another great preventive choice as well. Talk with a professional about installing this to the main electrical panel of your house to reduce the risk of damaging your wires.

When Lightning Strikes Nearby

Approximately 9,000 wildfires are thought to originate from a lightning strike every year. With our high risks that already exist during fire season, lightning can be particularly dangerous in our area. Lightning generates an overwhelming amount of heat, which means a fire will move quickly and threaten everything near it.

Keep your yard clean regularly and clear out dead vegetation. Make sure your defensible landscaping zones are up to date with current guidelines so that a fire is diverted away from your property.

Add smoke detectors to all the levels of your house and outside every sleeping area so that you can move to safety from wherever you are.

If you do have fire damage on your property, call SERVPRO just as soon as the flames are out. Fire restoration is a complicated process, and we have the 247 availability and training to start and finish quickly. We want to put you on the path to recovery as fast as possible.

Flood Protection for Your Property | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

9/12/2022 (Permalink)

Protecting your home from flooding should be a priority, no matter where you live. Damage can occur with even an inch of water, which will always leave you with a large repair bill.

If your area is not at high risk for flooding, you may not qualify for financial help. This means preparation is even more important to avoid costly repairs later.

While our weather is typically mild in our part of California, occasional flooding is always possible. Excessive rainfall that leads to flash flooding, particularly in the spring, along with the risk of water damage from wildfire mitigation means our homes need to be prepared for water extremes just as we prepare for wildfires.

Protecting Your Home From the Outside

Even with blue skies, rain can pop up unexpectedly and cause your gutters to overflow and your yard to become soggy. When your home is ready outside and in, you can rest a little easier knowing your risks are lowered.

Clean your gutters to ensure a clean water flow away from your home. Adding a downspout extension can be an inexpensive way to protect your house as water moves away.

Organic materials like mulch are also a great way to create slopes in your yard and near your home. This protects your foundation and aids in avoiding puddles. Adding a garden can also help with absorption in your yard.

There are also a few upgrades that can make a big difference if you are able to invest in them. Have electrical outlets raised and fuel tanks securely anchored for added security during a flood event.

While these can be expensive projects, a rain barrel that gathers water directly from your gutter system also goes a long way in flood prevention. And as a bonus, it gives you a free source of plant water!

Flood Protection From the Inside

The best form of protection for your property from flooding is a solid foundation and completely sealed basement.

A sump pump can also add protection from water. In areas that experience extreme weather frequently, a battery-powered pump may be a smart upgrade that will stay on even if the power is out.

For flooding that doesn’t originate outside, you can protect your home with just typical home maintenance.

Aged and worn pipes are one of the top causes of interior flooding in homes and businesses. Fix leaky faucets, and make checking the plumbing in bathrooms and the kitchen part of your regular routine.

A leak sensor device can also be a great preventive tool that will alert you when water is leaking.This can oftentimes be an addition to your home security package, so check out what upgrades are available to you for additional peace of mind.

When water enters your home, it will damage paper goods and photographs right away. Keep irreplaceable items up high or in a container that is waterproof.

Put your emergency contacts somewhere safe as well, and make sure SERVPRO is on the list. The sooner you give us a call, the faster your recovery begins.

Keep Your Backyard Fire in Control | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

7/27/2022 (Permalink)

Sitting in the backyard with your family and a toasty fire makes for one of the best nights you could ask for. Roasted hot dogs, gooey s’mores and stories shared are memories your whole family will smile about.

Fire serves a lot of purpose for our day-to-day lives, including cooking our meals, controlling pests while we play and cleaning up the yard after a storm or in the fall. That small fire in the fire pit might seem safe and without hazards, but in an instant it can ignite the dry grass nearby and create a real disaster.

The National Park Service notes that 85% of wildfires are started by humans.

Most of our area falls into what is considered a fire hazard severity zone, which basically means we are all at risk from wildfires. We know that bordering so much wildlife means that we need to stay fire-aware not just during fire season, but throughout the year.

This shouldn’t put a damper on your outdoor fun, though. When you follow proper local safety regulations and maintain a good personal fire plan, you can roast and toast to your heart’s desire.

Recreational Fire Hazards

Lighting a flame outside will always have risks, but campfires, fire pits and fireworks are common outdoor fire starters. Grills cause an average of 8,800 home fires each year when they are used improperly.

Just last year, two homes in Spring Valley were destroyed in a fire when a grill was left unattended. Always check your propane tank or gas line before you start cooking, and never walk away from a hot grill.

When you plan your next backyard campout, pick a location far from your home and cars to start the fire. Get the flames going with matches or a lighter only, and stick to firewood as additional fuel throughout the evening. Just a few embers can spark into flames, so hold off on the chocolate coma until the fire is completely out.

Fire pits are a fun part of backyards these days, giving you the opportunity to feel like you are camping without all the setup. These pits still carry a lot of dangers, however, and should be treated with the same safety measures as a regular campfire. If your fire pit is movable, never place it on a wood surface or an area that has a roof or overhang.

Getting rid of your construction leftovers or some household items in your pit might seem safe, but only firewood approved for recreational burning should be used.

Other Outdoor Fire Hazards

While there are certainly risks, fire can still be a helpful tool when used properly. If you have a lot of trees that lose leaves and limbs, burning may be a viable cleanup option when there isn’t another way of disposing vegetation.

Permits are required for open burning, and there are quite a few restrictions on getting them. You will need to check with the city and have a flexible plan if you are cleaning your yard with a vegetation fire.

Keeping your yard clean of dead plants and leaves is an essential part of our already required defensible zone landscaping regulations that is in place to help protect and prevent against wildfires. Knowing what is safe to burn and isn’t when the regulations allow for it is essential in keeping your fire in control.

If you have power tools or yard tools stored somewhere, you probably have gasoline to fuel them. Improperly storing gas can result in a real disaster, so be sure your containers are approved for storage and keep it out of the reach of any children that might access your space.

Only use gas for its intended purpose as well—it isn’t safe or smart to spark the fire with a squirt of gasoline no matter how low the flames are.

If you are going to light anything outside, check the weather and local warnings first. If there are bans or it’s a red flag warning day, if the winds are high and we haven’t seen rain in a while, skip the flames and roast marshmallows another day.

If you do experience any damages from a fire, call SERVPRO. We are ready day or night to tackle the extensive damage left behind from a fire, and we want to restore your property as fast as possible.

Burn safely outdoors. And save some chocolate for us! If you have experienced fire or smoke damage, contact us today to get restoration started faster.

 

Staying Safe During Storm Alerts | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

7/13/2022 (Permalink)

When it comes to severe weather, there are at least 42 different kinds of alerts in seven different categories. That can be a lot of information to handle, especially as clouds are moving in.

When you learn what advisories mean you can quickly get to safety. It also means you can take action and protect your home and loved ones from danger.

A general idea of different kinds of warnings is important, but it is essential to understand the weather that most often happens in our own California neighborhoods.

How Alerts Are Issued

How do we get weather alerts? When a forecast is issued, how is where the storm will be, how long the storm will last and how strong the storm is monitored? There is a good bit of information that all works together to create alerts and answer all of those questions.

The responsible party for creating forecasts and issuing alerts is the National Weather Service. They have six regional offices and over 100 forecasting offices, which means forecasts are not only more accurate but can also be localized. Our forecasts most often come from San Diego.

Out of these offices NWS employees utilize data in order to create a forecast, including satellite radar, sensors, seismic activity and even solar activity. The sources of information used will vary according to the weather event predicted, but the end goal is to be as accurate as possible.

The Most Important Alerts to Understand

“Watch” and “warning” are two types of alerts that you will see in almost every kind of weather and something you need to understand the difference between. These alerts will be used during winter storms, flooding and thunderstorms, as well as fires and heat waves.

When a watch is issued, you should prepare for a severe storm to be nearby. Watches often cover a wide area to alert the most people, while a warning will be issued for a pinpointed area such as a county or city. A warning means a dangerous situation is happening, and you should find safety fast.

In our area, we also need to be very aware of fire alerts. While our temperatures are typically mild, the threat of wildfires means understanding red flag warnings, fire weather watches and extreme fire behavior.

Fire season is not our only risk, however, as we can occasionally see severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfalls as well. We also cannot rule out extreme heat waves that pose a risk to both our health and our homes.

Protecting Your Home During a Storm

A great first step to protecting your home and your family is understanding different weather alerts, but there are a few other ways you can avoid damages as well.

Keep any outdoor furniture tightly secured and clean your gutters regularly to avoid flood and wind damage. You should also supply a safe space with an emergency kit in an interior room of your house for when you need to stay put, and create an exit plan for when you need to leave.

Once the storm has passed, walk around your property and take note of any damage you may have received. Give SERVPRO a call as soon as possible as well. We are available 247 to start your recovery quickly and get you back home.

Learn as much as you can about our corner of California’s weather and stay safe with whatever comes our way. Be prepared for storm alerts to be issued and take the stress out of the next storms.

Steps to Protect Your Home From Fire | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

7/13/2022 (Permalink)

In 2022, the American Red Cross has responded to more than 20,000 house fires, which is only a portion of the total number of fires so far this year in the United States.

Smoke detectors will always be the No. 1 way to protect your home from loss, but there are several other things you can do to prevent a disaster—and most of them are as easy as giving your home a good cleaning!

Clear the Clutter

Clutter may already be a term you hate hearing in your home, so let this be a motivator to clean it up: It can also be a fire hazard. Allowing your hallways, stairwells or utility spaces to overfill can fuel a fire once it has started, as well as block emergency exits.

Leaving loose clothing near a water heater can actually start a fire. Keeping your space clear not only means quick access to escape routes in the event of an emergency, but it can also slow down the progression of flames.

Another common source of fire in the home is overloaded extension cords. Unused electrical appliances should be stored away while anything you don’t use frequently should be unplugged as often as possible.

Take a look around your home and make sure there is plenty of space between your furniture and wall outlets to ensure proper air flow and prevent overheating.

Create a Defensible Space in Your Yard

You can’t live in California without being aware of the risk of wildfires. Your yard can play a key role in defending your home from a fire that starts outside. Landscaping laid out intentionally can both slow a fire before it reaches your doorstep and allows room for firefighters to work.

This spring brought extremely dry weather for our county, which only increased the wildfire risk in our area. If you have not already, consider creating defensible zones in your yard. While California does have specific regulations for different areas, any zone-specific yard work you do can help in the fight against wildfires.

Keeping your yard clear of dead plants and other debris is also helpful in slowing down flames. According to typical zone regulations, you should only store cut wood in zone 2, or at least 30 to 100 feet away from your home.

This specific landscaping doesn’t mean you can’t plant your favorite items; it simply requires the proper layout and strategic planning of plants that can help to slow the spread. Considering our extreme risks, it is well worth it.

Keep It Clean & Keep It Safe

Cleaning the clutter from your home and yard are only part of how you can protect your house. Have your chimney inspected yearly, and clean your stove regularly to eliminate two high fire-risk areas.

It isn’t only deep cleaning that lowers your risk, though; even dusting can increase your overall safety. Pay special attention to those dust bunnies around your electronics and outlets.

Our homes are no longer simply a place of rest—these days we work, play and learn in them. Keeping your home clean is the easiest way to prevent a disaster from fire.

Understanding Commercial Damage Causes | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

6/21/2022 (Permalink)

Business is the heart of our country, and it has been for all of our time. Every day, we all utilize companies, and it is likely we visit multiple ones.

Owning a business means you carry a heavy load in your daily management of the ins and outs. A disruption like a natural disaster can be devastating to the delicate balance that is keeping a business going.

Commercial damage from natural disasters has been on a steady incline in the United States. In the last five years, there has been an annual average of $153 billion worth of damage, which represents a substantial increase over previous periods.

Our weather here in Spring Valley is typically mild, with short, cool winters and moderately warm summers. While not completely exempt, thunderstorms and tornadoes are fairly rare in our area.

Even heavy rains are not common occurrences, although we do see some storms that carry intense rainfall from time to time. We do have an extremely high risk of wildfires in our area, though, which means that we all need to stay emergency-ready.

The more we can learn about the ways our businesses can be damaged, the more we can do to protect and prevent.

Water Damage

Water is one of the top ways business buildings are damaged all across the country. Moisture problems can stem from weather events or something internal and completely unexpected, like an appliance failure. No matter where it comes from, water causes complete chaos on commercial properties.

Exterior flooding from excessive rain or overflowing rivers causes damage as it enters your property through doors and even the foundation. Landscaping is a great preventive measure for this kind of water intrusion. Create barriers with flower beds, mulch or even extra dirt to divert water away from your business. This type of landscaping is familiar to us in California, as we follow fire zone regulations for our yards.

Water damage from interior sources can happen over an extended period of time when a drip is left unfixed. Your plumbing should be inspected on a regular basis for signs of leaks. You should also watch walls and floors for water damage including warping and discoloration.

Keeping up with building maintenance can save an immense amount of money on costly repairs.

Storm Damage

Storm damage can cause commercial destruction that can devastate an entire property or a single roof tile. Even a small storm can knock out power or throw around debris that can keep you away from your office.

A powerful storm is capable of bringing extreme damage to roofing or even the structure of your property. These storms can bring winds of over 100 mph that can topple freight trucks and tear down trees like they are twigs.

You can take action to limit the damage done to your property with a few upgrades to your building, like storm-protective window covers or updates to your roof. These measures are highly effective, but they can also be very costly.

Even simple low-cost or cost-free steps are highly effective, though. Check the seals on your windows and doors regularly, and inspect your building for potential weak spots or needed maintenance. Clear your exterior of debris or dead plants before a storm moves in.

Building these items into your regular routine can save you on expensive repairs later.

Know Who to Call

Damage to your commercial property can happen in many different ways, but water and storm damage are the most common. These events can completely devastate your business, forcing you to shut down for an extended amount of time, or in a worst-case scenario, close altogether.

Fortunately, we are your backyard restoration professionals. Because we are locally owned and operated, you can call us 247 and we will respond quickly to any disaster you may face. Our team is your neighbor, and we want to work with you to create a plan and timeline that gets you back in business faster.

If you have experienced damage to your business or want to learn more about our commercial damage restoration services, contact us today. We’re here to act fast, 247.

Why You Should Create an Emergency Plan | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

5/20/2022 (Permalink)

When the weather turns severe, it can get scary quickly. Thunderstorms often include lightning strikes, hail, intense rain and strong winds that can leave behind a trail of destruction. The United States can see around 100,000 thunderstorms a year, making these frequent events something we should all pay attention to.

Our gentle climate and comfortable temperatures may mean that we are able to spend most days outdoors, but it does not make us exempt from severe storms, even if they are not a common occurrence. Rare storms mean that we should stay more prepared so that we are not completely caught off-guard. Creating a plan with a communication strategy and an emergency kit can ensure your family’s safety when the weather turns rough.

Your Severe Weather Communication Strategy

The first step in creating an effective emergency plan is having a communication strategy that works. Understanding the difference between a watch and a warning and receiving those warnings in a timely fashion is essential so that you can move to safety at the appropriate times.

You should have several sources of emergency communication such as a weather radio and a cell phone so that you can receive alerts in more than one way. Always stay prepared for a wi-fi outage or power outage by charging your equipment prior to the storm.

As you receive those alerts, ensure you have a strategy for communicating with your family. Have a space in your home designated as a safe space (typically a basement or bathroom) and make sure even the youngest in your house understands where it is.

You should also think about how you will communicate with anyone who may not be home during the storm. Your communication plan should be thorough enough so that everyone can be accounted for.

Your Severe Weather Emergency Kit

In your safe space, you should keep an emergency kit with essentials for your household. Plan for 72 hours worth of nonperishable food items and water in the event that you need to stay put during and after a storm.

You should also include flashlights, batteries and first-aid supplies, as well as some comfort items you can use to keep your family calm and comfortable.

Your Severe Weather Aftermath Checklist

Once the storm is over, you need to be prepared for everything that comes next. As soon as it is safe, you should assess your property for damages.

Keep a close eye on your roof, windows and doors. These areas are at a high risk for moisture intrusion and you will want to ensure their seals are intact and mitigate any water that may have come in.

If you do come across damage on your property, make SERVPRO of Spring Valley/Jamul your first phone call. Having a team of professionals in your own backyard should give you peace of mind that your restoration can be started faster.

Once your cleanup has begun and the storm is long gone, talk with your family about your emergency plan. What worked and did not work? Did you have the right supplies and enough of them in your kit? Was everyone home or not home able to check in with each other?

Continually readdressing and practicing your plan will keep your family safe and prepared for the next storm that rolls in.

If you discover storm damage to your home or business, you can count on SERVPRO to handle the restoration. We’re here 247 to spring into action—get in touch with us today.

Water and the Damage It Causes | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

5/17/2022 (Permalink)

A little water spot or drippy faucet may seem like something you can handle later, but moisture and its destructive effects should never be underestimated. In a year, a small household leak can lose up to 10,000 gallons of water.

Water damage moves quickly, saturating floors, walls and other surfaces. Addressing the problem right away means less damage and better end results.

This is the basic timeline of how water progresses:

In the First 24 Hours

Living in a house in a high-risk area means that you have a one in four chance of enduring a damaging flood within 30 years. When you spot water, knowing how to respond is crucial.

The first two days after a flood is the most crucial time frame. Some items in your home will be lost to water’s effects almost immediately.

Anything upholstered or soft will absorb water and become soaked, while wooden items will begin to swell from moisture. Personal items like books and photographs are susceptible to warping and may become damaged beyond repair.

Mold can also begin to form in these first few hours, making taking action quickly of the utmost importance.

SERVPRO has a “restore vs. replace” mentality. We want to save as many of your precious keepsakes as possible, as well as your other items so you save money. If we cannot fully restore any items, we will communicate directly with you and handle the removal so that your home can continue to dry out.

Within the First Week

Water damage moves quickly after the first 24 hours. When an environment is moist, mold can spread like wildfire and even set in and damage the home’s structure.

Any porous surfaces like wood or walls will become compromised, while corrosion will start on anything metal.

After One Week

You want to dry your home and items out as quickly as possible, as any moisture allowed to sit for extended amounts of time will have catastrophic effects. The more time that passes the more it will cost to do the extensive work required to restore anything.

Risks also increase when items stay wet, too, as structural damage is greater.

How SERVPRO Will Help

Even within the first 24 hours, SERVPRO can respond and begin work immediately. Service starts with thorough water removal to prevent any additional spread and reduce drying time.

It is likely that floors, furniture and other items will need to be cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. Once the majority of water has been removed, our specialized team will use industry-leading equipment to remove water you can’t even see.

Once these steps are finished, there may be a need for construction work in order to restore things back to preloss status. This could involve a minor repair or a complete rebuild of a damaged section of your home.

SERVPRO can simplify your restoration process by handling every step from damage mitigation through construction. We will keep you aware of the progress of each step and get you back in your home faster.

Regardless of the type of water damage sustained, SERVPRO has the tools and teams to help your home or business recover. Contact us 247 when you need a dependable team to help you recover.
