Commercial Water Damage in East Village Store?

7/16/2021 (Permalink)

A check out counter in a convenience store is shown. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in San Diego.

When my convenience store flooded it was a disaster. There was no way I could let customers into the store until the water was cleaned up. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW, and I’m glad I did. Even though it was the middle of the night, they arrived quickly and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process.

They inspected the store for the cause of the water damage and tracked it down to a pipe in the wall. They were able to repair the pipe while another team extracted the water from the floors and cleaned underneath all of the shelving units. They set up powerful air movers and dryers and documented the drying process to ensure that normal moisture levels were restored. We were able to open on time that morning, and the wall was repaired the same day. Thank you, SERVPRO!

Sewage Back-up in the Marina District?

7/5/2021 (Permalink)

A person is rinsing cooking grease down the drain. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in San Diego.

SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year in the Marina District and offer these tips from the Insurance Information Institute for preventing sewer backups in your sewer lateral and in the city main:

  • Properly dispose of grease

Cooking oil should be poured into a heat-resistant container and disposed of properly after it cools off, not in the drain. Washing grease down the drain with hot water is unsatisfactory. As the grease cools off, it will solidify either in the drain, the property owner's line, or in the main sewer causing the line to constrict and eventually clog.

  • Properly dispose of paper products

Paper towels, disposable (and cloth) diapers, hygienic wipes and feminine products do not deteriorate quickly and can cause a great deal of trouble in the property owner's lateral as well as in the city main.

  • Periodically cut tree roots 

If you have continuing problems with tree roots in your lateral, you may have to regularly have the roots cut by a professional.

  • Replace your line with new plastic pipe 

Plastic pipe will prevent tree roots from entering your line is to replace your line and tap with new plastic pipe.

  • Install a backwater prevention valve to prevent sewer backflows.

  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Mold may produce health effects
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, or the mold may return
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth
  • Keep indoor humidity below forty-five percent
