Minimizing Water Damage To Your Wood Floors

3/27/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO is the industry leader in damage restoration, but sometimes you have to do things yourself. If for some reason, you cannot contact your local SERVPRO franchise, here are a few things to do if your wooden floors suffer water damage:

1. Remove standing water. This should seem obvious, but many would decide not to touch anything. This will save you time and money in the long run.

2. Dry your floor. Again, this may seem obvious, but steps 1 and 2 are vital to having a chance at recovering your wooden floors. The longer they're wet, the worse it gets.

3. Get some airflow going through the area. If possible, use a fan to speed up the drying process.

If you follow these three simple steps, your wood floors have a much better chance of being restored to their former glory.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us today at 310-929-9293. As always, we're here to help make it "Like it never even happened."

In the critical era of pandemic of Covid 19 it is determined that contagion rate of this Coronavirus is high. Scientists estimated that each infected person spread it to 3 other persons. In the other hand 50% of the people who carry the virus are not showing any symptom. These characteristics of the current pandemic does imply that many of healthy people working in hospitals, super markets and janitorial field who considered essential workers at this time may be themselves carriers of the virus.

So anyone may be carrying the virus without knowing it. The problem is that these healthy workforce may transmit the disease to a fragile individual. 

This is where SERVPRO comes in to contain the spread of the disease:

All of our highly trained, IICRC certified technicians on site will use PPE (Preventive Protective Equipment) while they perform either restoration or cleaning work, inside any building or facility. This means they are wearing N-95 masks, gloves at the minimum. 

When they complete a work at a job site, all tools and equipment are disinfected professionally before being stored in our vehicles. You can be assured that no virus or other infectious particle will intrude in your building once you work with SERVPRO professionals.

With these facts in mind when you need cleaning or restoration, any emergency water or fire damage cleanup , or even a preventive or actual biohazard or Covid 19 cleanup consider doing it the right way.

Pandemic seasons can involve pathogens that the spread is controllable either by Vaccine or by some kind of available effective and proven treatment. 

Some pandemic are self limiting and by change of ambient temperature, by change of season subside. But with the present one, even experts in the field are debating if it will fade away spontaneously.

development of vaccine and treatment is underway but still need time to be usable by general public.

Our shutdown businesses, communities, cities, counties, and states will be hopefully back to a more normal situation slowly. 

Less crowded facilities can be opened gradually once the peak of pandemic is over.

Here we go with a pandemic that disrupted our routine.

Who would think our great country would one day close most retail stores, convention centers, arenas, and even consider to transform them to quarantine and treatment centers in some areas?

California is among the states most impacted by the disaster. Even our beaches closed. 

But one thing is sure: We will be back to normal sooner or later and this time around we are going to be more cautious. 

In the meantime, we need to make sure during this temporary time of lockdown we still keep our workplace, our community centers, our schools and our universities, our senior centers, and libraries, and our hotels, restaurants, and stores clean. Clean and mostly sanitized. Because now we learned it the hard way that wherever a crowd gathers infectious disease spreads easier.

For cleaning and sanitizing any building, home or facility we at SERVPRO have protocols developed by scientists according to recommendations of the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and inline with IICRC recommendations to help you have the peace of mind. 

When you choose SERVPRO you can be assured that cleaning has been done right.

Why would SERVPRO of Carson/ West Carson post a blog regarding fire damage prevention during the time of world wide disaster of COVID19?

Well, our IICRC certified technician, all of them equipped with  PPE ( Protective Preventing Equipment) are  on the field helping to clean home and businesses around the city of Carson and surrounding area to get rid of water damages, mold, bio-hazard and infectious disease traces inside homes and businesses.

But we at SERVPRO believe in Benjamin Franklin's famous quote: "An ounce of Prevention is worth a pound of cure"

This is the reason we would like to take this "Shelter in Place Opportunity" to remind our community members to get ready before disaster strickes. 

  1. With nice amount of rain this year beautiful bushes and much greenery grew tall. Let's trim them adequately. So when the dry season comes dried vegetation are not around our properties.
  2. Replace batteries of all smoke detectors and alarms inside the building. 
  3. while children are at home they may want to cook, or do crafts using appliances or tools that have fire hazard. check them, make sure they are adequately turning off and educate children to never forget  to turn them off. This requires repetition, sometimes watching educational movies regarding fire hazard are the best way to teach them safety. 
  • Make sure your electrical wiring at home or at your business, as well as the gas lines and appliances, water heater, laundry dryer, cook top and oven are maintained and no leak is detected. Gas company and Edison both have free safety inspection services.

Additionally, Here is a link to FEMA 's Library for fire prevention

Managing and Preventing Water Leaks

Pipe leaking Water Leaks

Hidden leaks at your residential or commercial property can cost you a fortune and severe damages to your property. If you're not aware of these leaks, your health can be at risk! 

Undetected leaks can lead to other dangers like mold/mildew growth or pest infestation, which lead to health concerns. Be responsible and take the time and effort to do a walk through of your property and pinpoint any signs of leaks.

How To Manage and Prevent Water Leaks...

Do you know where to go to turn off your main water supply at your property??? This is very important to know if you're a property owner.

Some of the effective ways to prevent water leaks include; being up to par with timely plumbing repairs, preventing pipe damage, or sometimes even installing a leak detector for your plumbing system, which will automatically turn off your water supply once it suspects a leak.

One of the most popular ways to detect leaks is simply checking the leak indicator on your meter, or simply watch for changes in the meter readings. If you come across any changes, than more than likely you have a leak.
