Water, water everywhere

Over the past couple days we have received massive amounts of rain and high winds. In our many years of experience here at ServiceMaster, when we get this much rain it ends up in places that we do not want it to be. Sump pumps tend to be working their hardest to keep up and might even fail because of burning up the motor or power outages. If you need assistance we are here to help. While most times ground water is not covered by insurance we want you and your home to be taken care of. If you have water in your home from this large amount of rain falling, please give us a call. We can be there to clean everything up and dry it or provide you with advice of what direction to turn. It is always better to address problems from water sooner than later. If you wait, you could end up with a much larger problem because of bacterial growth forming from there still being moisture where things appear dry.

We are trained and certified with the IICRC in Water Damage Remediation. The schooling that we have gone through to make sure we take care of our customers has been ongoing and we love to share that knowledge with our customers.

Below is a picture of the Merrillan Dam yesterday morning before three more storms rolled through our area. Water levels are very high and some rivers will continue to rise as tributaries flow down into larger bodies of water.

Lots of water

When we say that structures need to be dried out completely it is to prevent something like the below picture from happening. A closet was left untouched by a homeowner and because water remained in the wood and drywall mold started to grow.  Cleaning up after water when it just happens is easier and more cost effective than letting things run their course.
