SIGNS OF STORM DAMAGE ON YOUR ROOF

While your Oxnard roof is designed to withstand the elements, some storms are more intense than others. There are signs to look for when you believe there may have been damage to your roof. Please be safe when inspecting your roof—possibly view from a window inside the house or use binoculars from the ground. If in doubt, call a professional roofing contractor. 

Wind Damage

Significant wind can cause shingles to blow off the roof deck. Missing shingles can lead to leaks and other interior damage. Other wind damage may not be easy to see, especially if the adhesive seal that provides a water-shedding surface is broken. Always be safe when checking for roof damage. Call a professional roofing contractor for assistance.

All manufacturers publish a wind warranty on their shingles; it is important to compare the wind coverage when making your shingle selection on a new roof. If the winds that caused the shingle damage were above the manufacturer’s wind coverage, you’ll need to file an insurance claim. If they were not, contact the shingle manufacturer to file a claim.

SEÑALES DE DAÑOS POR TORMENTA EN SU TECHO

Si bien su techo Oxnard está diseñado para resistir los elementos, algunas tormentas son más intensas que otras. Hay señales que debe buscar cuando crea que puede haber habido daños en su techo. Esté seguro cuando inspeccione su techo, posiblemente vea desde una ventana dentro de la casa o use binoculares desde el suelo. En caso de duda, llame a un contratista de techado professional.

Daño por viento

Un viento fuerte puede hacer que las tejas salgan de la plataforma del techo. Las tejas que faltan pueden provocar fugas y otros daños interiores. Es posible que otros daños causados ??por el viento no sean fáciles de ver, especialmente si el sello adhesivo que proporciona una superficie de desprendimiento de agua está roto. Esté siempre seguro al comprobar si hay daños en el techo. Llame a un contratista de techado professional para obtener ayuda.

Todos los fabricantes publican una garantía contra el viento en sus tejas; Es importante comparar la cobertura contra el viento al hacer su selección de tejas en un techo nuevo. Si los vientos que causaron el daño de las tejas estuvieron por encima de la cobertura de viento del fabricante, deberá presentar una reclamación al seguro. Si no fue así, comuníquese con el fabricante de las tejas para presentar una reclamación.

Cómo SERVPRO de Oxnard extrae su hogar o negocio después de una inundación

La restauración de tormentas repentinas en Oxnard puede involucrar varias operaciones de extracción

Si vive alrededor de Oxnard, probablemente sepa que la región a menudo puede verse plagada de tormentas eléctricas severas que pueden traer mucha lluvia en poco tiempo. Una tormenta de inundación repentina puede causar que pulgadas y posiblemente pies de agua se acumulen en su propiedad fuera de su casa. Una vez que el agua llega a esa profundidad, podría ingresar a su estructura a través de un techo con goteras o sellos viejos de puertas o ventanas.

Una vez que el agua comienza a ingresar a su edificio después de una inundación repentina en Oxnard, el H2O líquido podría llegar a lo más profundo de su casa. Si el agua penetra lo suficiente dentro de su casa, podría hacer que su residencia sea insegura e inhabitable. Afortunadamente, una empresa de restauración professional como SERVPRO tiene el equipo necesario para ayudarlo a regresar a su hogar e incluso hacer que parezca "como si nunca hubiera sucedido". Durante cualquier escenario de daño por humedad, siempre comenzamos el proceso de restauración con la fase de extracción. La extracción se lleva a cabo primero porque es mucho más fácil eliminar el agua mientras todavía es un líquido y antes de que se evapore en el aire y penetre en los materiales y contenidos de construcción.

Durante la mayoría de los proyectos de restauración, nuestro equipo SERVPRO lleva a cabo el proceso de extracción en dos pasos diferentes. Primero, cualquier agua estancada que tenga más de dos pulgadas de profundidad es succionada por una bomba sumergible y luego expulsada a un desagüe de alcantarillado, como su bañera o inodoro. Si hay varias habitaciones y áreas de su casa que contienen agua profunda y estancada, entonces podemos configurar una bomba de sumidero diferente para cada habitación afectada negativamente. Si hay agua líquida presente en pisos duros, no porosos, como baldosas o pisos de madera, podemos trapearla o empujarla hacia un desagüe del piso con una escobilla de goma.

Para el agua que se ha empapado en materiales porosos como alfombras o artículos tapizados, podemos usar un extractor de alta resistencia con herramientas de extracción especializadas adjuntas. Podemos utilizar diferentes equipos para alfombras muy saturadas o pequeños elementos tapizados como sillas reclinables. Tanto las unidades de extracción de servicio pesado como las herramientas de extracción portátiles Water Claw usan el peso del operador para comprimir las telas y así poder aspirar más agua.

Si alguna vez necesita ayuda con aguas profundas dentro de su casa después de una tormenta brutal, llame a SERVPRO of Oxnard al (805) 984-2347 24/7, porque somos más rápidos para cualquier desastre de tamaño.

How SERVPRO of Oxnard Extracts Your Home or Business After a Flood

If you live around Oxnard, you probably know that the region can often get riddled with severe thunderstorms that can bring much rain in a short amount of time. A flash flood storm can cause inches and possibly feet of water to build upon your property outside your house. Once water gets that deep, it could find its way into your structure through a leaking roof or old door or window seals.

Once the water starts to enter your building after a flash flood storm in Oxnard, the liquid H2O could become deep inside your house. If the water gets deep enough inside your home, it could make your residence unsafe and uninhabitable. Luckily, a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO has the necessary equipment to help you get back into your home and even make it seem, "Like it never even happened." During any moisture damage scenario, we always start the restoration process with the extraction phase. Extraction takes place first because it is much easier to remove water while it is still a liquid and before it evaporates into the air and soaks into your building materials and contents.

During most restoration projects, our SERVPRO team conducts the extraction process in two different steps. First, any standing water that is more than two inches deep gets sucked up by a submersible pump and then expelled into a sewer drain such as your bathtub or toilet. If there are several rooms and areas of your house that contain deep, standing water, then we can set up a different sump pump for each negatively affected room. If there is any liquid water present on hard, non-porous floors such as tile or hardwood flooring, we can mop it up or push it into a floor drain with a squeegee.

For water that has soaked into porous materials such as carpet or upholstered items, we can use a heavy-duty extractor with specialized extraction tools attached to it. We can utilize different equipment for heavily saturated carpets or small upholstered items like recliner chairs. Both the heavy-duty extraction units and the handheld Water Claw extraction tools use the weight of the operator to compress the fabrics down so more water can get vacuumed up.

If you ever need help with deep water inside your house after a brutal storm, call SERVPRO of Oxnard at (805) 984-2347 24/7, because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

What's the Difference Between Professional and DIY Flood Removal for Oxnard Residents?

When flood damage hits a residence, even if it is only a single room in the home, it hits hard. Groundwater rolls in and tends to run quickly into the carpet and behind baseboards, sometimes affecting subflooring; all are historically difficult places to extract water from.

When Oxnard residents require flood removal,

it may seem like a good idea to do it yourself and save some money. In doing so, you can set yourself up for a myriad of issues in the future.

What problems does incomplete water removal have?

Any water left behind creates a perfect habitat for mold infestation, foul odors, and the destruction of building materials through exposure to continual excessive moisture. All of these problems carry a cost to treat when complete water removal helps avoid them altogether.

How does professional flood water extraction work?

There is little to compare a consumer-grade wet/dry vacuum to the professional equipment SERVPRO technicians use for water extraction. Depending on the surface, technicians may use weighted extractor heads, squeegees, truck-mounted units for large amounts of water and stand-on units utilizing the weight of the tech for the extra force during extraction from carpeted surfaces.

Complete drying is a must

Household fans blow air on wet surfaces, and that is the end of it. The centrifugal air movers used by SERVPRO deliver air at such velocity it cases embedded moisture to rise. When this occurs, the dehumidification system chosen for use captures this moisture and ports it away. Thus, a cycle of progressively drier air circulates and results in complete drying rather than surface drying.

What about needed repairs?

Controlled demolition, the clean removal of water-damaged building materials, is an integral part of the flood damage cleanup process. Baseboards that are solid hardwood, sometimes possess restoration potential if warping or splitting has not occurred from water exposure. Water wicks quickly into sheetrock and removal must occur for drying.

SERVPRO of Oxnard carries a general contractor license #892710, and after mitigation efforts complete, they offer reconstruction services to restore your home to its pre-flood condition.

When you need flood removal, you need SERVPRO of Oxnard. Call us at (805) 984-2347, and our technicians can turn around the damage to your home and make it "Like it never even happened."

Paneles de yeso mojados en Oxnard cerca de mí Cuando necesite la eliminación de inundaciones, necesita SERVPRO de Oxnard. Llámenos al (805) 984-2347

Cuando el daño por inundación golpea una residencia, incluso si es solo una habitación de la casa, es un golpe fuerte. El agua subterránea entra y tiende a correr rápidamente hacia la alfombra y detrás de los zócalos, a veces afectando el contrapiso; todos son lugares históricamente difíciles de extraer de agua.

Cuando los residentes de Oxnard requieran la remoción de inundaciones,

puede parecer una buena idea hacerlo usted mismo y ahorrar algo de dinero. Al hacerlo, puede prepararse para una gran cantidad de problemas en el futuro. ¿Qué problemas tiene la eliminación de agua incompleta?

El agua que queda crea un hábitat perfecto para la infestación de moho, los malos olores y la destrucción de los materiales de construcción a través de la exposición a una humedad excesiva continua. Todos estos problemas tienen un costo de tratamiento cuando la eliminación completa del agua ayuda a evitarlos por completo.

¿Cómo funciona la extracción professional de agua de inundación? Hay poco para comparar una aspiradora en seco / húmedo de grado de consumidor con el equipo professional que utilizan los técnicos de SERVPRO para la extracción de agua. Dependiendo de la superficie, los técnicos pueden usar cabezales extractores pesados, escurridores, unidades montadas en camión para grandes cantidades de agua y unidades de pie que utilizan el peso de la tecnología para la fuerza adicional durante la extracción de superficies alfombradas.

El secado completo es imprescindible Los ventiladores domésticos soplan aire sobre superficies mojadas, y eso es todo.

Los motores de aire centrífugos utilizados por SERVPRO suministran aire a tal velocidad que hace que suba la humedad incrustada. Cuando esto ocurre, el sistema de deshumidificación elegido para su uso captura esta humedad y la transporta. Por lo tanto, circula un ciclo de aire progresivamente más seco que da como resultado un secado completo en lugar de un secado de la superficie. ¿Qué pasa con las reparaciones necesarias? La demolición controlada, la remoción limpia de materiales de construcción dañados por el agua, es una parte integral del proceso de limpieza de daños por inundaciones. Los zócalos que son de madera maciza, a veces poseen potencial de restauración si no se han deformado o partido por la exposición al agua. El agua penetra rápidamente en la placa de yeso y se debe retirar para secar.

SERVPRO of Oxnard tiene una licencia de contratista general # 892710, y una vez que se completan los esfuerzos de mitigación, ofrecen servicios de reconstrucción para restaurar su hogar a su condición anterior a la inundación. Cuando necesite la eliminación de inundaciones, necesita SERVPRO de Oxnard. Llámenos al (805) 984-2347, y nuestros técnicos pueden reparar el daño a su hogar y hacerlo "como si nunca hubiera sucedido".

SERVPRO® expands partnership with commercial businesses with first publicly available disinfectant product

12/8/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPROxide SERVPROXIDE disinfectant is available in one-gallon bottles and boxes of four.

SERVPROXIDE™ is now available to Amazon Business customers in the United States

SERVPRO, the #1 professionals in disaster cleanup and restoration, announced the availability of SERVPROXIDE™, a hospital-grade disinfectant proven to kill 99.999% of bacteria and viruses when used as directed, for customers on Amazon Business.

SERVPRO, a Blackstone portfolio company, partnered with Amazon Business and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Digital Innovation Team because speed to market was critical as colder weather nears and COVID-19 cases rise. In under 60 days, AWS and Amazon Business helped SERVPRO develop the logistics and e-commerce capabilities needed to bring SERVPROXIDE to the Amazon Business store.

From the beginning of the pandemic, SERVPRO franchise professionals have been on the front lines cleaning and sanitizing businesses, first responder vehicles, schools, hospitals, churches, cruise ships, and military facilities. With the launch of Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned in April 2020, SERVPRO defined professional pathogen cleaning standards for businesses and facilities fighting the spread of COVID-19.

“Since launching our professional pathogen cleaning service, our customers have been asking for support with their daily follow-up cleaning. We listened and started working with teams across Amazon to explore distribution opportunities for SERVPROXIDE,” said Mike Stahl, SERVPRO’s Chief Marketing Officer. “SERVPROXIDE can elevate everyday cleaning for business owners as they proactively clean registers, door handles, restrooms, counters, tabletops, or any other surface.”

“The SERVPRO team developed their first product offering efficiently by combining innovation and speed-to-market in order to deliver SERVPROXIDE conveniently to their customers,” said Mark Crowther, Innovation Lead, Private Equity, AWS. “AWS works with a number of Blackstone’s portfolio companies to help them develop innovative solutions on the world’s leading cloud, and we are thrilled to partner with Amazon Business to help SERVPRO with this business launch.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has opened the eyes of business owners and consumers alike to increased cleaning practices. According to a recent Harris Poll, 71% of consumers expect businesses to have higher cleanliness standards than they do in their own homes. Business owners, now more than ever, are publicly demonstrating enhanced cleaning protocols and the use of professional, hospital-grade products to show all they are doing to mitigate the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and other viruses.

When used as directed, SERVPROXIDE disinfectant kills a wide variety of harmful pathogens while being safe enough for everyday cleaning. It carries EPA’s lowest toxicity rating and is NSF-rated for use on food contact surfaces with no rinse required.i Designed to disinfect on hard surfaces, SERVPROXIDE also effectively sanitizes soft surfaces and neutralizes odors on fabrics and carpets.

Now available on Amazon Business, SERVPROXIDE is the first product SERVPRO has sold directly to customers in the company’s 50-plus year history. Select product offerings will also include Cleaned with SERVPRO Disinfectants window sticker for businesses to display to provide additional safety assurances to their customers.

"Being 100% sure that our cleaning practices are effective, gives us the opportunity to focus on what we do. We make pizza!!! Anyone that works in a high-volume pizzeria knows what a whirlwind of chaos it can be. The fact that SERVPROXIDE is ready to use, and requires no dilution, gives me peace of mind what we're using on our food surfaces as well as NSF and EPA registrations. I want our customers to know that we take their health seriously, and that's why we choose to use SERVPROXIDE in our food truck. You trust us to make pizza, we trust SERVPRO to make our disinfectant. It's as simple as that. Also, pineapple DOES belong on pizza," stated Danny Bruckert, Owner/ Pizza Maker for Groundlings Pizza Co., Brooklyn, NY.

Amazon Business helps millions of customers worldwide reshape their procurement with cost and time savings, greater productivity, and insightful purchasing analytics with access to a variety of business-tailored features and benefits. 

While using SERVPROXIDE as directed will reduce the spread of pathogens on treated surfaces, SERVPRO recommends that businesses have a professional pathogen cleaning if they experience a COVID-19 event in their facility.
