Fire Season is Coming

Fire Season is just a few months away.  As the weather in the Bay Area becomes warmer and drier, the chances of a home fire increases as well.  It’s important to do a good preventative check around the house, to remove broken appliances, correct outlets with too much plugged in, and worn down wires.  Even with such preventative measures, if a home fire begins, you must act quickly, calmly, and safely as best as you can.

If a Fire Starts:

  • Use a fire extinguisher. Practicing with your family on the proper use of one ahead of time could make a huge difference, in saving lives, damage to the home, and money.
  • If the fire catches on your person (clothes, etc.) STOP, DROP, AND ROLL.
  • If the fire is uncontrollable, get out of the house immediately, and call 9-1-1. Do not go back to gather any belongings.
  • Important to use stairs, not an elevator, during a fire. A fire can cause the electricity to go out in a building.  The elevator quarry can fill up quickly with smoke.
  • Do not open any doors that are warm to the touch. What’s on the other side could be a matter of life or death.
  • If stuck near a window where you can’t safely escape, open it up, wave the brightest, most colorful cloth you can get your hands on, or a flashlight, as a signal for help.
  • If you are trapped inside, close doors around you, placing wet towels at the bottom of the door, call 9-1-1, and tell the operator where you are located.

After a fire, it’s crucial that you contact SERVPRO OF SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO/ SAN BRUNO, the professional fire damage restoration company in your area.  Don’t try cleaning up the damage on your own, because you could make things worse.  We are highly trained, fully equipped, and ready to properly restore your home - "Like it never even happened."

After the Rainy Days, what could come next?

mushroom mold SERVPRO of South San Francisco City/ San Bruno is ready to assist with your after-storm needs, so YOU DON’T have to deal with issues like severe mold.

We here at SERVPRO of South San Francisco City/ San Bruno are very coherent of Mother Nature’s pattern when storms come and go in the Bay Area.  After a big storm, in as little as a day to a week, mold can start growing in places you least expect it.  Within this time period, we receive calls from hundreds of customers in need of remediation, many for mold.  It’s great that these customers are taking action to have preventative work performed on their home or commercial spaces.

If you have had water loss after a storm, in an attic, closet, crawlspace, or anywhere on your property, you should understand that mold has the potential to spore shortly after, and spread quickly.  Rainwater has a way to seep and sit in a structure in places least expected, by means of a damaged roof, pipe leak, crack of a wall, or deteriorated sill.  This can then breed the beginnings of mildew/mold on the exterior and/or interior of a building.  This is why it is crucial, once the loss has been identified, to have the source repaired, and begin remediation as soon as possible.  If not, you become susceptible to problems like the ones pictured to the right.  If there is a sighting of growth, the likelihood of mold behind the layers of flooring/ceiling/wall is very prevalent.  Take action now before it is too late!

Call SERVPRO of South San Francisco City/ San Bruno at 650-794-1000 for more information.  We will assist and lead you in the right direction!

storm waters SERVPRO of South San Francisco City/ San Bruno can assist with water damage caused by blocked drains and the rain!

One of greatest attractions to the San Francisco Bay Area is our weather.  Especially in South San Francisco/San Bruno area, Mother Nature plays a great part in the beauty of our community.  Our late summers in the fall months often times dictate how much rain we’ll get during the fall and winter.  This year, Summer was cut short, with the first downpour in late October, flooding streets, homes, and other structures in our area.  Before the next storm arrives, practice prevention from water damage by checking all of these key areas of your property:

  • The Roof;
  • Light Wells; and
  • Gutters.

In addition, storm drains along the exterior of your structure need to be cleared of debris, leaves, branches and other materials that can block ways for water to escape.  Note that the best times to check these areas are the months right before expected rain arrives.!
