Storm Damage Rain, Rain Go Away !!! Ceiling water damage from storm

With the relentless series of storms we've seen since last December, SERVPRO of Lodi has seen a marked increase in water damage from roof leaks. Roof leaks can be a challenge to deal with! A roof leak only happens at the worst possible time, typically during the peak of a heavy rain/windstorm.

Roofs will leak for a number of reasons, including shoddy construction, holes made by animals, missing shingles thanks to intense wind and rain, problems with plumbing vents, damaged flashing and clogged and overflowing gutters. Consider the age of the roof, too. It may be so old and worn that it’s time for a proper replacement. Additionally, skylights and chimneys traditionally leak because they’re essentially sealed holes in the roof! There's a joke, there's 2 types of skylights, those that leak and those that will....

Typically you’ll see a stain on a wall or ceiling that’ll give you an idea you have a leak coming from somewhere. In extreme cases SERVPRO of Lodi has been called out when the ceiling has already come crashing down. The insulation in attics is very absorbent and can hold quite a bit of water; a slow leak can take weeks sometimes to reveal itself, usually with a loud crash and ceiling drywall and insulation covering everything in the house!

The best time to trace where the leak is coming from is to examine its trail as best you can when it’s raining outside. SERVPRO of Lodi has the tools to help track the leak to its source. Once it's found a roofer can come by and either temporarily tarp the roof or get it repaired if the rains stopped!

Flooded Home in Lodi CA

Water Damage Flooded Home in Lodi CA A broken toilet supply line caused water damage throughout the home including the garage

A home can flood at any time, although most flooding occurs when a pipe inside your home leaks.. There are a number of reasons why your Lodi home could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer  pipe 

  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home

  • Storm sewer backup

  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure

  • And many more

    The flooding in this Lodi home was caused by a broken pipe.  The insured's had left for a few days and returned home to find their home flooded

    We were onsite within an hour, to inspect the damage and to begin the water extraction process. After installing high tech drying equipment, we then used advanced inspection and monitoring equipment to determine when the  structure was actually dry. 

    If water damage is not handled quickly and properly, it can cause severe damage to your home’s structure not to mention the potential harmful health effects of mold. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

    We are Flooded Home Specialists:

  • We’re a Preferred Vendor to many National Insurance Companies

  • We bill the insurance directly – One less thing for you to worry about

  • Our technicians are highly-trained in water restoration techniques

  • We use s500 IICRC Restoration Standards

Mold Remediation Tips for Mold Safety SERVPRO of Lodi can dry out your home and remove mold.

If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of LODI for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Do not touch or disturb the mold.
  • Do not blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Do not attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Do not spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.
