Surprise Rain Damage In Camarillo

8/2/2022 (Permalink)

Water stains in dropped ceilings, tracking down the wall or dripping in a hallway are all signs that your commercial building has a roof leak. Even minor exposure can be a major inconvenience.

What Causes Camarillo Roofing Leaks

As water flows outward from the leak point, its exact location can be challenging to identify. Some common causes include:

• Age of the roof
• Debris building up and trapping water against the roof
• Gutter backup slowing water flows off the roof
• Missing shingles that may have been ripped off in high winds

Water Damage Cleanup

Once the location of roof leak has been identified and the damaged roof fixed, it’s time to begin water damage cleanup. Depending on the site and severity of the leak, this can be extensive. Although each situation may be a bit different, some common steps must be taken.

1. Remove water-damaged materials.
• From the exterior: Shingles, tarpaper, plywood, flashing, etc.
• From the interior: Fiberglass insulation, drywall, dropped ceilings, carpeting/flooring, etc.

2. Dry water affected areas.
• If appliances or equipment were exposed to water, unplug them and let them air dry.
• Open windows if it’s less humid outside than inside.
• Use fans to speed the drying process.
• Check for mold growth.

3. Disinfect areas exposed to the water
• Wash nonporous hard surfaces such as glass, plastic, and metal with hot water and a non-ammonia soap
• Disinfect all exposed surfaces including wood beams and studs with a bleach solution.
• Clean soft surfaces such as furniture, window coverings and carpeting with a disinfecting cleaner

Recovering from a roof leak and restoring roof and ceilings can be a time-consuming, complex process. SERVPRO of Camarillo can ensure the process is done quickly and thoroughly, allowing you to get back to business.

Black Water Can Look Clean

8/2/2022 (Permalink)

When it comes to dealing with flood water in Camarillo, it's important to know that this type of water often falls into the black category. This can become a factor in many cleanup operations. It is important to understand where the water comes from and what to do if flooding occurs in your home or business.

Where Black Water Comes From

Contaminated water, otherwise known as black water, is any water that may have come in contact with fecal matter. This may include

  • Sewer water
  • Water from fields
  • Toilet backup
  • River run-off

Flooding falls into the black category because often there is no way to tell what it has come into contact with. In most cases, it is best to assume it has been contaminated and follow the proper sanitation procedures.

What To Do If Flooding Occurs

If you're busy with storm damage or flood water, it’s important to conduct any repairs necessary as quickly as possible. Doing so can help prevent further damage and may also help when it comes time to talk to your insurance. Since flooding is considered to be contaminated water, it's important to remember to sanitize the damaged area as well as to clean the zone.

How Your Insurance May Help

Depending on your policy your commercial insurance may cover the costs of cleanup and repairs related to flooding. They may even recommend a flood restoration service who can help with every step of the process. If you have questions about what exactly is covered by your policy, it's important to talk to your insurance agent.

Understanding that flood water falls into the black category can help you take proper sanitation measures when it comes time to clean up. Most experts recommend thoroughly drying the area, and then following recommended sanitation practices. In many cases, your insurance may cover the cost of restoration. If you have any questions, SERVPRO of Camarillomay be able to help.

Tips That Can Keep Your Camarillo Building Dry

8/2/2022 (Permalink)

  • Increase grade:  The earth around the home should be sloped away from the house to divert water away. Very simply, borrow earth from three feet away from the structure, and toss it against the side of the house thus creating the slope.
  • Clean rain gutters:  Schedule a licensed professional to clean gutters annually. A clogged rain gutter can send water cascading down the exterior wall, which can result in water entering the interior walls.
  • Divert down spouts: In a quick run to the local hardware store, homeowners can find a black, plastic corrugated 6-inch hose that fits around the base of the downspout. This device carries water away from the house, preventing it from seeping down into the foundation.
  • Roof maintenance: Where rain is concerned, the roof is the first line of defense. One small tear in a rubber membrane or crack in a tin roof, or compromise in the plywood structure of the roof can prove disastrous for the entire interior of the home. But regular maintenance can preserve the life of the roof. Have a roofer check out your home every five years.
  • Window repairs:  Proper window installation and maintenance is imperative. Modern windows are fitted with wells and drains designed to help direct water outside the house. Improper caulking can prove disastrous by sending water into the house that should be draining away from the window.
  • Sweep away debris:  Especially during spring and fall seasons, when the area’s great trees emit pollen in tumble weed fashion and drop their leaves in mass, it is critical to diligently sweep outdoor surfaces weekly, especially patios and door wells to prevent the collection of debris clogging exterior drains.

1. Regularly Inspect your Roof

Performing a regular inspection of your roof can allow you to look for any water, storm or wind damage that may have occurred. Many experts recommend having an inspection performed biannually. You may also want to look a roof over after any severe storms or weather.

2. Take Care of Problems As they Occur

One important mitigation tip to keep in mind when dealing with roof damage is to take care of any problems as they occur. This may keep a small problem from turning into a larger issue down the road, and also keep you in compliance with your homeowner’s insurance policy. Additionally, making small repairs as necessary may help prevent a costly roof replacement down the road.

3. Contact a Professional

If you are unsure how to properly care for a roof, or what repair sets may be necessary for any damage you may find, then you may want to contact a storm damage restoration professional. A professional service often has the equipment, materials and tools necessary to perform any repairs as efficiently and safely as possible. They should also be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your roof.

If you're worried about roof damage to your Camarillo home, you may want to consider taking some of these steps mitigate potential problems. Doing a regular roof inspection will it allow you to be aware of the condition of your roof and take care of any problems as they occur.

What Should Clients And Adjusters Look For In A Restoration Company?

When it comes to damage restoration, an insurance adjuster and client share many interests. Both want to have mitigation and restoration work done well at a reasonable cost. Insurance representatives and property owners should look for the following features when comparing restoration services in Camarillo, CA.

Accurate Estimates

An estimate gives clients and insurers a clearer sense of the total amount of an insurance claim. This calculation should account for several aspects of a job:

  • The type and extent of damage
  • Necessary equipment and labor
  • Mitigation and restoration costs

A company that provides both mitigation and restoration services may provide a more accurate initial estimate. An insurance adjuster is likely to prefer a single estimate that accounts for the entire process rather than two estimates from different companies that may or may not work together.

Ease of Access

Insurance agents and adjusters can access claim information and estimates online at any time through the SERVPRO Claims Information Center. This service provides a variety of information:

  • Claim information
  • Estimates
  • Comparison data

Insurance representatives can sign on to review updated information about a job. This electronic claims service also enables insurers to compare national, regional, state, county or local data on claims, losses and jobs.

Industry-Leading Methods

Insurance representatives and clients can both appreciate a service that uses cutting-edge methods. Certification from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration indicates that a company adheres to established industry-wide best practices. This credential often means that a service can complete a job in less time and often with a lower claim.

An insurance adjuster is more likely to settle a claim based on an accurate estimate from a company capable of completing the job. The availability of claim information can make this process faster and more straightforward. An insurer or client can access all of these features through SERVPRO of Camarillo.

Inundaciones en su casa de Camarillo Cuna ventaja a problemas en toda su propiedad

Un aumento significativo en la humedad a menudo ocurre en una residencia de Camarillo después de una emergencia que involucra la propiedad. Una humedad alarmantemente más alta no necesita ningún instrumento científico para decirle a los propietarios lo que su piel ya les está diciendo sobre su hogar.

Un tipo de desastre que puede causar esto dentro de una casa camarillo es la inundación de cualquier parte de la propiedad. Tan pronto como el agua invade los materiales de su hogar, también comienza a evaporarse en el aire. Debido a las corrientes de aire ya existentes dentro de su hogar, el vapor de agua migra a cada área de su hogar a medida que intenta alcanzar el equilibrio. 

A medida que este vapor de agua se condensa en los objetos alrededor de su hogar, puede causar problemas. Incluso mientras trabajamos en mitigar el diluvio de materia microbiana a través de la aplicación de desinfectantes, la eliminación de piezas más grandes de escombros, la eliminación de mezclas de suelos depositados y piezas más pequeñas de escombros, y la eliminación de partes dañadas de su casa, la evaporación continúa teniendo lugar constantemente. SERVPRO entiende cómo se mueve el agua dentro de una casa y el daño secundario que su presencia puede traer.

La humedad tiende a aparecer en las piezas de metal, y la presencia de humedad hace que la corrosión dañe dichos artículos rápidamente. Muchos de los artículos que componen los sistemas eléctricos, de climatización y de telecomunicaciones de su casa están hechos de metal. Las piezas oxidadas pueden causar un mal funcionamiento del sistema o incluso una falla completa.

Mientras que sus proveedores de telecomunicaciones son responsables del mantenimiento de sus equipos, SERVPRO también tiene un equipo de servicios de construcción que puede ayudar con las reparaciones necesarias para los sistemas eléctricos y de climatización. Nuestra información con respecto a ese servicio cae bajo la Junta de Licencias del Estado de California (CSLB) # 892710, y también podemos ayudarlo a abordar su propiedad y encerrarla dentro de una cerca temporal.

Debido a que los ambientes humedecidos pueden causar cortocircuitos eléctricos tan rápidamente después de los daños por inundación,también llegamos con fuentes de energía portátiles para que nuestros equipos de mitigación puedan configurar y hacer funcionar los motores de aire y las máquinas desecantes. Algunos de nuestros métodos de control de olores no requieren electricidad, pero a menudo ejecutamos al menos un generador de hidroxilo durante las etapas de mitigación y restauración. El hidroxilo no mata el moho superficial, pero puede destruir las esporas que flotan en el aire, ya que también destruye los olores. 

Las inundaciones pueden causar problemas a largo plazo con los servicios públicos, los olores y las infestaciones microbianas. Sin embargo, SERVPRO de Camarillo  tiene los jugadores del equipo que pueden hacer que su hogar "Como nunca sucedió" rápido. Hacemos más que hacer que su casa se vea bien de nuevo , lo hacemos seguro y funcional, también. Llámenos al (805) 484-5009 para comenzar las cosas lo antes posible.

Flooding in Your Camarillo Home Can Lead to Problems Throughout Your Property

A significant increase in moisture often happens in a Camarillo residence after an emergency involving the property. Alarmingly higher humidity needs no scientific instrument to tell homeowners what their skin is already telling them about their home. 

One type of disaster that can cause this inside a Camarillo house is flooding of any part of the property. As soon as water invades the materials of your home, it also begins to evaporate into the air. Because of already existing air currents inside your home, water vapor migrates into every area of your home as it attempts to reach equilibrium. 

As this water vapor condenses on the objects around your home, it can cause problems. Even while we work on mitigating the deluge of microbial matter through the application of disinfectants, clearing out larger pieces of debris, shoveling out mixtures of deposited soils and smaller pieces of debris, and removing damaged parts of your house, evaporation steadily continues to take place. SERVPRO understands how water moves around inside a home and the secondary damage that its presence can bring.

Dampness tends to show up on metal pieces, and the presence of moisture causes corrosion to damage such items quickly. Many of the items making up your house's electrical, HVAC, and telecommunications systems are made out of metal. Rusted parts can cause system malfunctions or even complete failure. 

While your telecommunications providers are responsible for the maintenance of their equipment, SERVPRO also has a building services team who can help with the repairs needed for electrical and HVAC systems. Our information regarding that service falls under California State License Board (CSLB) # 892710, and we can also assist with boarding up your property and enclosing it inside a temporary fence. 

Because dampened environments can cause electrical shorts so quickly after flood damage, we also arrive with portable power sources so our mitigation crews can set up and run air movers and desiccant machines. Some of our odor control methods do not require any electricity, but we often run at least one hydroxyl generator during the mitigation and restoration stages. Hydroxyl does not kill surface mold, but it can destroy spores floating in the air as it also destroys odors. 

Flooding can cause long-term problems with utilities, odors, and microbial infestations. However, SERVPRO of Camarillo has the team players who can make your home “Like it never even happened,” fast. We do more than make you house look nice again – we make it safe and functional, too. Call us at (805) 484-5009 to get things started as soon as possible.

Storms Can Allow Flooding in Your Camarillo Residence

Many Camarillo homeowners are familiar with the severe weather systems that can affect the area with minimal warning. What is more alarming that even this potential problem, is the effects that these severe systems can have on the homes throughout the region. High winds and torrential rainfall can be a lethal combination for the construction materials on the outside of your home, tearing off siding, breaking windows, damaging roofs, and even uprooting trees.

For all of these potential storm effects that could result, many Camarillo homeowners have taken to prepare for the persistent threat of flood damages. Any compromise in the exterior defenses of your home can allow for high volumes of runoff water and the rainfall to enter directly into the residence, spreading quickly throughout adjoined spaces. Fast reaction on your part to contact our SERVPRO emergency response team can help limit the damage that this situation can cause and ultimately help the restoration take less time.

From the moment that our emergency response team arrives at your home, our mission is to determine where the water can enter your home and to seal up this area as best as we can. While these measures are often little more than a bandage for the primary problem, boarding and tarping overexposed areas can prevent more water from entering your home until the damaged area can get rebuilt.

Our SERVPRO team can begin our restoration work following the repairs getting done. In the meantime, we can help in areas like extraction and other mitigation techniques to prevent the issue from getting any worse than it has already become. Once your home is secured again, our restoration can help you to dry out the affected areas completely and to resolve any secondary effects that could have occurred as well.

It is always our intention to minimize our effect on your life, and that comes with offering services 24/7 and working to make our restoration process as efficient as possible. You can depend on our SERVPRO of Camarillo emergency response team to help mitigate your loss when you face a flood and take all of the necessary steps to return your property to preloss condition.

¿Inundación repentina en Camarillo? Llame a nuestros expertos!

Después de una inundación repentina en  Camarillo, sus pisos de madera pueden tener que    ser secados

Las tormentas severas en Camarillo a veces pueden resultar muy destructivas. Por ejemplo, si llueve lo suficiente en un período corto, es posible que tenga que lidiar con las condiciones de inundación repentina. Una vez que el agua comienza a llegar profundamente fuera de su propiedad, la humedad podría comenzar a entrar en su residencia desde el suelo o lugares vulnerables en su estructura como sellos de puertas inferiores. Cada vez que su suelo comienza a mojarse, una empresa de restauración professional como SERVPRO puede ayudar.

Si una  inundación repentina alguna vez golpea Camarillo,sus pisos de madera dentro de su casa podrían verse afectados negativamente. La humedad excesiva puede causar daños a los pisos de madera, y en casos extremos, el suelo debe ser removido y reemplazado. Los pisos de madera pueden contener más humedad que las maderas más suaves porque son más densas. La naturaleza de las maderas duras hace que sean mucho más difíciles de restaurar una vez que han retenido la humedad. Afortunadamente, nuestros técnicos de SERVPRO tienen equipos especializados diseñados específicamente para secar pisos de madera.

Al secar los pisos de madera, nos enfocamos en evitar que problemas como la deformación, el pandeo o el ahuecamiento se vuelvan permanentes. Los pisos de madera también deben secarse de inmediato para que el moho no tenga la oportunidad de crecer. Una vez que cualquier pandeo, deformación o ahuecamiento permanece después de que el piso está seco, el repintado o la eliminación podrían tener que hacerse. En casos menores, los problemas con el suelo se pueden restaurar lijando las imperfecciones y repintando el suelo. En los casos en que el pandeo o el ahuecamiento es severo, el suelo podría tener que ser arrancado y luego reemplazado.

Al secar pisos de madera, una técnica común es usar motores de aire y deshumidificadores. Utilizamos deshumidificadores para reducir la humedad relativa de la zona afectada a entre el 30% y el 45%. Luego configuramos motores de aire por encima y por debajo del piso, si es posible, para empujar el flujo de aire a ambos lados del material del piso de madera.

También podemos implementar equipos que pueden empujar el aire debajo del piso de madera dura para empujar el aire debajo de él. A veces, el secado puede ser más efectivo si se realiza de abajo hacia arriba. En otros escenarios, podemos usar esteras de secado especializadas que ayudan a enfocar el aire y empujarlo profundamente en el material de pisos de madera dura.

Después de una  inundación,los resultados pueden serdevastadores. Para obtener ayuda de los professionales, llame a  SERVPRO de Camarillo  al (805) 484-5009 24/7 porque somos más rápidos ante desastres de cualquier tamaño.

What Do You Do When A Flood Hits Your Camarillo Home Or Business?

In homes and businesses common throughout parts of Camarillo, disasters like flooding can put all of the belongings and possessions of a family at risk. Addressing these concerns, along with the management of the flooding and removal of its effects are priorities for our professionals dispatched to the damaged address. We work to provide our clients with a comprehensive approach to their restoration from the initial inspection through reconstruction and cleanup, and this includes management of the contents within a property that can remain at risk for irreparable damage from the flooding.

We know how vital a fast response can be when flood damage has occurred in your Camarillo property, as the spread of floodwater can quickly saturate and impact more than the structural elements and construction materials in the property. The contents of your home represent the investments that you have made, and in many cases, these items are irreplaceable and unique. With the damage that flooding can do, you need our experienced SERVPRO contents department looking out for the belongings in your home.

The pack-out process is a vital component to the full-service experience that we can offer customers in their time of need. With a large SERVPRO facility nearby, we can relocate at-risk or damaged items to our warehouse to get specialized cleaning, disinfection, and deodorization services before they get stored in a climate-controlled vault until restoration work completes in the house and these items can get returned.

Not all of the flood scenarios require full removal of the contents of your property, however. Depending on the spread of the floodwater, there are instances where many of the items, furniture, and other personal belongings can get moved to another location in the house unaffected by the spread of floodwater.

Flood damage can affect your property in multiple ways, and without the appropriate preventative measures and recovery strategies, these effects can prove costly and destructive. Let our SERVPRO of Camarillo contents department help protect your treasured belongings when disaster strikes. Give us a call today at (805) 484-5009.

Dependiendo de la propagación del agua de la inundación, hay casos en los que muchos de los artículos, muebles y otras pertenencias personales pueden trasladarse a otro lugar de la casa que no se vea afectado por la propagación del agua de la inundación.

Los daños por inundaciones pueden afectar su propiedad de múltiples maneras, y sin las medidas preventivas y las estrategias de recuperación adecuadas, estos efectos pueden resultar costosos y destructivos.

Near- or below-normal 2020 hurricane season predicted for Central Pacific

8/12/2020 (Permalink)

There is a 75% chance of near- or below-normal tropical cyclone activity during the Central Pacific hurricane season this year, according to NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center and NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, divisions of the National Weather Service.

The outlook also indicates a 25% chance of an above-normal season. 

For the season as a whole, 2 to 6 tropical cyclones are predicted for the Central Pacific hurricane region. This number includes tropical depressions, named storms and hurricanes. A near-normal season has 4 or 5 tropical cyclones. 

“This year we will likely see less activity in the Central Pacific region compared to more active seasons,” said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., NOAA’s lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at the Climate Prediction Center. “Less activity is predicted since ocean temperatures are likely to be near-average in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean where hurricanes form, and because El Nino is not present to increase the activity.”

Storm Water Removal From a Camarillo Attic

Weather-related water damage is one of the most common reasons homeowners have to file an insurance claim for their property. Interior and exterior damages from wind, rain, ice, hail, and snow take up a combined 51% of claims in the United States per year, making these types of damages among the most frequent and costly. Fortunately, there is a team that is available to help you cut costs and minimize property loss.

If your Camarillo home requires attic storm water removal, IICRC-certified SERVPRO technicians are prepared to restore this integral part of your home to its preloss condition. These professionals provide fast-action extraction and cleanup services, as well as detailed documentation and invoicing, to aid you in the claims filing process after a disaster. If you require further reconstruction on your property, your local SERVPRO is licensed to provide general contracting services (#892710).

Spotting Storm Damage Without Getting On Your Roof

?    Storm damages you can see on the ground include asphalt shingle granules or pieces in your yard, clogged or leaky gutters, and exterior property damage.
?    Storm damage signs you can find in the home include visible water damage on fixtures, walls, and ceiling, water accumulation and staining in the attic, as well as water-saturated attic framing. Wet insulation is another indicator.
?    A professional roofer may look for damage to layers under the shingles. The underlayment, which provides a temporary barrier against some storm damages, is also examined. The decking that acts as the foundation of your roof can also be evaluated by a professional. Roofers also tend to look at gutters and check around chimneys for loose or missing flashing.

SERVPRO's Attic Cleanup Process
Attic cleanup can involve many different factors besides drying the wooden supports. Wet fiberglass insulation can often be cleaned, dried, and restored, but cellulose or cotton are porous organic materials that require removal to prevent the spread of mold.

If you store documents in your attic and they have been affected by rainwater, technicians can minimize damage using sublimation--that is, freezing and then drying the papers--to prevent further warping of paper of staining of spreading ink.

SERVPRO of Camarillo offers a mitigation service that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (805) 484-5009 for cleanup that can begin within hours of your initial contact.

How Water Damages Structural Materials in Camarillo

Flood Removal Camarillo – Drying Cinder Block Walls

Water affects different materials in a variety of ways. Many consumers might assume some elements, such as cinder block walls, do not need to be examined for water penetration after a flood. Cinder block walls are slightly porous and also may contain small holes that allow the water to penetrate the cavities of the cinder blocks.

SERVPRO provides flood removal services in Camarillo and surrounding areas. After a flood, we check walls exposed to floodwaters. The surface must be disinfected and cleaned. Walls with cavities such as cinder block also need to be examined for high water or high moisture content within the wall cavities.

Removing Water and Moisture from Walls with Cavities

Walls painted with gloss or semi-gloss paint may be protected since the paint acts as a vapor barrier against water damage. If water has penetrated the wall, we may need to drill holes in the wall at the lowest point to allow the water to drain. Holes may also be drilled near the top to allow air circulation and drying. These holes are patched with mortar once SERVPRO is satisfied that moisture levels have reached normal levels.

Many block walls contain insulation, which makes it more challenging to dry. The insulation may lose some of its insulation efficiency; however, the wall can be dried using a similar process of drilling holes and then blowing air into the wall cavities. We use non-penetrating moisture meters to confirm when moisture levels have reached normal levels.

We can review the water mitigation process with clients to help in determining the best approach to drying walls after a flood.

SERVPRO is a licensed General Contractor - License:892710, California State License Board - CSLB: 892710, and can help with all of the repair and construction work. We can save our customers time to repair their building as well as the total cost.

A Comprehensive Look At Flood Damages In Your Camarillo Home

9/18/2018 (Permalink)

Flood damages might seem straightforward in the way that water penetrates into your home, but it is rarely as simple as that.

A Comprehensive Look At Flood Damage

Natural disasters might not be all that uncommon to Camarillo residents, but surprisingly, many still do not fully know what to expect in certain emergency situations. In instances of widespread flooding, many houses could get affected simultaneously around you, leaving you and many of your neighbors learning firsthand what a destructive force rising water can be.

Flood damages might seem straightforward in the way that water penetrates into your Camarillo home, but it is rarely as simple as that. While the rising waters throughout the lower levels of your home might prove challenging enough to overcome to even experienced professional restoration outfits like our SERVPRO technicians, many other effects and considerations make restoring flood damages a significant challenge for even highly trained individuals.

One of the initial things that you have to consider when you contend with water rushing into your home from the outside is the source. While in many cases rising bodies of water like creeks and streams can attribute to flooding in lower lying areas, you might also deal with situations like flash flooding and runoff through hazardous areas. The first of these scenarios often brings considerable mud and debris into your home along with the water, requiring extensive cleaning of carpets and materials once water has gotten extracted and the area dried.

Contaminants are rarely something that you can instantly see, but they can adversely affect your family working to clean up the areas of your home affected by the flooding on their own. Our SERVPRO team gets trained to identify potentially hazardous conditions like these to ensure that the right precautions get taken throughout the restoration process and that your home is contaminant-free once these steps complete.

Few things could occur to your house that is more destructive than a flood could be. With often little warning to prepare for this situation, the best thing that you can do is to have a plan in place to restore the damage if it ever affects you directly. Trust our SERVPRO of Camarillo rapid response team to arrive quickly and work efficiently to restore your home. You can reach our emergency team anytime at (805) 484-5009.

The Worst 5 Things You Can Do When Threatened By Mudslides

3/8/2018 (Permalink)

Recently, Southern California has been being hit by a spate of deadly mudslides. Video available online shows rivers of mud careening down streets, carrying cars along in the flow. Twenty people have been confirmed killed and 28 injured, with 8 more people unaccounted for at the time of this writing.

While not on the top of most people’s disaster risk checklist, mudslides are extremely dangerous. We can see that by looking at what is happening in California. But as mudslides go, these have been rather minor. In 2010, a mudslide swallowed an entire town of 300 homes in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, as people slept in their beds.

Rescue efforts were hampered by damage to the roads, which had to be cleared before workers could get to the town.

Water Damage Restoration Tips Hurricane Victims Often Miss

9/15/2017 (Permalink)

In the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, many homeowners are struggling to get up to speed on water damage restoration—the process it takes to repair a home that's endured a flood or other water-related problems.

Even at the minor level of a leaky roof or burst pipe, water damage can easily hit homeowners with bills amounting to several thousand dollars—and with a hurricane, that number can skyrocket. All told, estimates from AccuWeather put the damage from Irma at more than $100 billion, and Harvey at $190 billion, which makes summer 2017 the costliest weather disaster season in U.S. history.


The good news: Water damage restoration is typically covered by insurance—be it flood insurance or a basic homeowners policy. According to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage makes up about 20% of all insurance claims in the U.S.

Storm-lashed roads, dams could cost $1B to fix

2/28/2017 (Permalink)

"FRESNO - The bill to repair California's crumbling roads, dams and other critical infrastructure hammered by an onslaught of storms this winter could top $1 billion, including nearly $600 million alone for damaged roadways that more than doubles what the state budgeted for road repair emergencies, officials said Friday.

Adding to the problems, many communities have drained their emergency budgets and are looking to the state and federal government for help. But on top of the latest damage, the nation's most populated state is struggling with a $6 billion annual backlog of repairs for roads, highways and bridges that leaders can't agree on a way to fund.


Winter storms have dumped enough rain and snow on the northern part of the state to end a five-year drought. But with the wet weather, comes a host of problems for crumbling infrastructure"

The first storm began overnight and is expected to last through Monday afternoon, said Carol Smith, a meteorologist with the weather service in Oxnard. The second storm will begin Monday evening and continue with scattered showers through Tuesday.

According to Smith, the first storm will bring half an inch to an inch of rainfall to coastal plains and valleys, and an inch to 1.5 inches to the mountains. Snow levels are expected to stay above 7,500 feet due to higher temperatures, she said.

The weather service estimates the second storm will bring about a quarter of an inch of rainfall by Wednesday morning, bringing a total of three-quarters of an inch to 1.75 inches over the next few days."
