Carlsbad Weather is Better.

Carlsbad weather Carlsbad has sun just about year round! No snow here!

Is it ever really winter when you live in Carlsbad, California? October- January are just months that continue out the summer sun with slightly colder temperatures. Although the temper may drop slightly from the scorching sunny days, it's none the less still a beautiful day with a sometimes chilling wind breeze. The only way we know it's winter is by all the peppermint infused treats and holiday movies that come out. Even though we don't experience too many crazy storms, water damage can still happen within the home. A pipe can burst or a dishwasher can leak at any time. It's important to call us as soon as this happens to insure the least amount of damage is done to your  property. Let's hope our sun keeps the storms away this winter but if not, you know who to call!

Extracting water from wood floors in mall store. Our team received a call at 4am for a flood cleanup in the local mall.

Water damage can occur with no warning. Protect your home from a flood in every way you can:

  1. Protect wells from taking safety improvement suggestions from a licensed contractor.
  2. Make sure your yard slopes away from your home to direct water away from it.
  3. Have a plumber install an exterior sewer backflow valve.
  4. Anchor fuel tanks.
  5. Have an electrician raise switches, sockets, circuit breakers, and wiring at least 12 inches above expected flood levels.

For winter (areas that experience snow):

  1. Rain can make snow melt quickly.
  2. Remove snow piled against home.
  3. Seal any cracks or gaps in foundation.
  4. Safely remove snow from roofs.
  5. Clear drains and gutters of debris and assure snow melts away from home.

Roof Sealing for Storm Damage!

Person sealing roof Roof sealing can help prevent damage from storms!

Your roofing seems fine until a heavy storm hits and you find leaks all over your home. The day is gloomy, you want to stay inside and watch the rain fall from the window not from inside your living room ceiling. An option that a homeowner may have is to seal their roof. Sealing a roof includes options:

  • Two layers of felt
  • Synthetic roof membranes
  • A polyurethane foam spray(for existing roofs)

When you seal your roof, it gives an extra protection against rain storms.

It is said that the roofing industry has suggested the felt paper as a way to help drain water away once it is behind the roof cover. The roof covering that you chose should be sealed with a membrane that is strong enough to be watertight, will stay in place if the primary roof blows off.

This week Carlsbad is predicted to rain for 7+ days straight. Fix your roof before the leaks find the cracks!

AC Units Can Cause Mold!

8/31/2022 (Permalink)

ac unit at house AC units have potential for mold growth.

One of the most current questions that we get from Homeowners and Businesses is, can my AC cause mold or mildew? 

In the San Diego area we are accustomed to having the AC unit on one day and the heather on the next. Especially when it is in transitional whether seasons. When purchasing an AC unit you want to buy one that comes straight from the store/factory where there has not been any previous owners. If there is a warranty from the manufacturer, 10 years is the most typical warranty age. Although, there are terms from 5-15 years.

A properly designed, installed, and maintained air conditioning system shouldn't cause mold or mildew. There are always rare exceptions to the rule but these are the most reported reasons for faulty AC units. However, while an oversize or improperly designed unit can cool your home slightly, it also runs the risk of not removing enough moisture out of the rooms air. Too much moisture in your home can increase the potential for mold growth. Mold spores grow on nearly every surface. We live with mold in the same way we live with bacteria. Just like bacteria, there are perfect breeding environments that can and do yield a productive crop of molds that spread throughout the home or office setting. At times, these growths are not noticeable until the smell is strong or the appearance has reached an intolerable amount. Improper installation, lack of maintenance, and water drainage issues can also lead to biological growth. If you are someone who runs their AC unit every single day, it is a good rule of thumb to check your unit once every couple months to make sure that all lines are in safe condition. Also check that there are not leaking water marks near the wall or on the adjacent ground.

Wildfire Months in California

8/24/2022 (Permalink)

American flag hanging amongst burnt shrubs and trees. Our teams are always ready to deploy to the wildfires that emerge in northern or southern California.

Every year, southern California gets hit with wildfires. Just last year a wildfire started north of us in Santa Clarita. It's that time of year when brush fires start in Southern California. Firefighters have been working around the clock to keep this fire contained. It has burned through 9,400 acres of land some containing a few buildings but mostly brush. It was only 20% contained for weeks but the firefighters slowly got the upper hand. Although most of the fire only affected brush, the smoke and soot left behind in the air and on the houses surrounding caused immense damage. Soot can sit on the inside and outside of home walls, items and flooring causing a strong smoke odor that will not go away unless professionally cleaned. We are trained professionals in the fire damage cleanup services and can get your home back to clean air breathing again.

Every year, our teams deploy out to these fire sites to help cleanup homes from soot and smoke damage that is left behind. Our SERVPRO storm teams come together to help each other out throughout the country.
