lightning strike Fire Damage in Roseville.

Did you know that the last week of June marks Lightning Safety Awareness Week? This event is organized annually by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, (NOAA), and other partners and covers many topics related to lightning. Summer sees the highest instances of lightning strikes each year, and between 2009 and 2018 Michigan averaged 220,635 cloud-to-ground lightning flashes. SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores wants to assure the Roseville community that we have years of experience mitigating fire damage and are here for you in the event of a fire damage emergency. Here are some interesting lightning facts from the NOAA:

  • There are three main ways lightning enters homes and buildings:
    • A direct strike, through wires or pipes that extend outside the structure and into the ground
    • Once in a structure, the lightning can travel through the electrical, phone, plumbing, and radio or television reception systems
    • Lightning can also travel through any metal wires or bars in concrete walls or flooring
  • Lightning detection systems in the United States monitor an average of 25 million strokes of lightning from clouds to the ground during some 100,000 thunderstorms every year

Firebrands

Did you know that burning embers or firebrands can travel anywhere from one-quarter of a mile up to one mile in the wind? Fire embers result from fireplaces or backyard fire pits, wildfires or structure fires, and even from fireworks in some cases.  According to a report from the National Fire Protection Association, (NFPA), firebrands are thought to one of the main sources of fire ignition in wildland-urban interface areas. They can land on structures and ignite vegetation and other combustibles. SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores wants residents and business owners of Warren to rest assured that we are fire damage restoration specialists and have highly trained technicians ready to respond to any size fire damage emergency. Here are some prevention safety tips from the NFPA:

  • Remove flammable vegetation from the roof, roof gutters, and on and under decking
  • Screen areas below decks and porches with one-eighth wire mesh to prevent materials from accumulating
  • Cover exterior vents with one-eighth wire mesh to prevent sparks from entering your home
  • Enclose eves and cover ends of tiles with bird stops to prevent ember entry

7/20/2020 (Permalink)

Weather Prediction

Roseville weather forecasts in the summer seem to always be either:

  1. Rain and thunderstorms are possible
  2. Rain and thunderstorms are likely

SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores has no control over the weather, but we can prevent storm damage from increasing its destruction in Roseville homes or businesses.

Always Ready in an Emergency

Storms do a lot of damage in a short amount of time and water keeps doing more damage over time. The best response is therefore a speedy one. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores is Faster to any size disaster. It is also available to respond to an emergency every day, including holidays and weekends, all day, even late at night or early in the morning.

Call (586) 741-5050 any time. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores does not require Roseville to schedule its emergencies.

Whatever it takes

If a storm tears up a building, SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores provides board-ups and roof-tarps to keep the inside safe from the elements. Cleaning and restoration may be easier when the contents are in a separate space, so pack-up and move-out services are also available.

SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores shelters Roseville from Storms

dark blue sky, clouds, lightning If it rains on a Roseville parade, SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores will clean it up

Major storms are common around Roseville. The weather service can explain the science behind summer storms; SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores reserves its efforts for undoing damage from strong winds, lightning, floods and rain, and even hail.

Emergency-response crews are available 24 hours a day, every day. Disasters don’t wait for business hours to strike. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores is always ready.

When disaster strikes a home or business, call SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores at (586) 741-5050.

Water, water everywhere

The most common storm damage in Roseville is from water.  Water does plenty of damage by itself, soaking into property within minutes. Rainwater and groundwater bring outside contaminants. If lightning or wind exposes the inside to the elements, insects, fungi, and other contaminants get inside as well.

SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores starts extracting water immediately. Technicians have training and advanced equipment to remove even immense volumes of water. Dehumidifiers and dryers ensure that no hidden moisture remains to destroy property and allow microbial growth (such as mold) to cause more damage.

Once technicians have checked that the excess moisture is gone, the team starts decontamination and restoration. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores favors restoration over replacement, making expenses less, and life easier, for the homeowners and business owners in Roseville. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores has one goal: to get the property back to the pre-storm condition.

SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores is independently owned and operated.

Hot Water Heater Leaking in Warren?

A hot water heater is shown installed in a basement. Hot water heaters can cause water damage in St. Clair Shores.

Water Damage Prevention

Hot water heaters can cause a lot of damage to your home or business if they spring a leak that goes unchecked. According to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage property claims are the third-highest cause of insurance claims annually in the United States. One way to prevent flooding due to a leaking hot water heater is to install an automatic shut off valve. The automatic shut off valve will detect water leaking beneath the hot water heater and will turn off the water supply before water damage becomes widespread. In the event you experience a water damage emergency, SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores wants the residents and commercial business owners of Warren to know that we have a team of highly trained water restoration technicians on call with years of experience ready to assist you 24 hours a day, every day and in most cases, they can be on-site within four hours of your call.

Burst water pipe in Warren?

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

A woman is holding her head in shock at the water damage caused by a leaking pipe in her home. Broken pipes can cause water damage at any time in St. Clair Shores.

Broken Pipes Happen

My friend purchased a newer home in Warren that, unbeknownst to her, had faulty plumbing that caused severe water damage. The damage was not apparent until she saw the tell-tale signs of water leaking on the floor and dark water spots emerging on the drywall. Most of the drywall, baseboards and all of the pipes had to be replaced in her garage as the extreme cold caused the pipes to burst. Thankfully, SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores was ready to respond to her water damage emergency and sent a team of highly trained professionals to immediately begin the cleanup and restoration process.

Advanced Water Detection Technology and Techniques

The SERVPRO technicians used state-of-the-art moisture detection and measurement equipment to determine the moisture saturation levels in the damaged wall and brought in portable water extraction equipment to remove the water quickly. Then they installed high-speed air-movers and dehumidifiers to evaporate and dry the water vapor from the air. Once everything was dry, air scrubbers and deodorization agents were used to remove the soggy water smell and then they cleaned and sanitized the area and saw the repair process through to completion.
