What do I do when a pipe has burst?

4/21/2021 (Permalink)

Turn off the water

First thing, turn off the water flow when you suspect a pipe has broken, even if you don’t know where the water’s coming from. 

Turn off the electricity

As a safety precaution

Drain the pipes

Once the main water switch is off, you’ll need to drain the pipes. To do this, run the cold water on all the faucets and then flush all the toilets in the house. Once water is no longer running from the taps, any leaks should stop.

Locate the broken pipe and inspect the damage

After draining all the excess water, locate the burst pipe. Inspect the damage and consider where the pipe is located before you run off to the home improvement store. 

Repair the burst pipe

Hire a professional plumber to fix or replace your burst pipes

If the water from the burst pipe is on the walls or ceilings as well as the floor, contact a professional water restoration company. Simply using fans and open windows to dry a soaked area is an invitation to mold and mildew. This is a job for the professionals at SERVPRO Sunland/Tujunga!

The Dangers of DIY Water Damage Clean-up

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

Did you know that around 14,000 people in the US experience a water damage emergency at home or work every day? Not only is this statistic shocking, but so are the potential dangers water can pose to your home, business and health. When dealing with water damage, for the health and safety of your property as well as yourself, you should always call a professional restoration company to diagnose the situation as water damage is treated very differently based on its classification.

As you may or may not know, water has three classifications: Clean, Grey and Black. When experiencing a leak or flood, knowing water damage classification is paramount before treating the situation as there are certain safety precautions you need to take when dealing with each classification. If not dealt with properly, you could actually cause more harm than help.

When a damage restoration company comes in to assess, they are required to follow guidelines that were created by the IICRC in order to provide the safest methods of restoring your home or business while ensuring the wellbeing of everyone involved. 

Not only knowing and understanding how to treat the different classifications is important but being able to treat them in a fast and efficient manner is vital. Water damage that is not fully cleaned and dried in a timely manner can allow for an environment ideal for the growth of mold and potentially other contaminants.  

Of the three classifications, clean water is the safest classification of water to clean up. However, depending on the severity of the situation, clean water can very quickly turn into grey or black water which can put your home and health at risk. Grey water (the second classification) and black water (the third and worst classification) both contain a significant amount of contaminants that can potentially cause discomfort or illness to those who come into contact with it.

Our professionals at SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga can not only diagnose the category of water damage you are experiencing, but they have the knowledge and equipment to deal with each category safely and efficiently, mitigating additional risks that can come from improperly dealing with contaminants. For example, different flooring materials require different clean up procedures. Drying out and cleaning up a leak or flood on carpet require different steps than tile or hard wood flooring. When dealing with carpet and cushion padding water that makes its way underneath is quickly and easily absorbed. If the water classification is clean, then steps can be taken to dry and potentially salvage the carpet. But, due to carpets ability to hide dirt, food spills and other items, a clean water leak or flood can quickly turn into a grey or black classification due to its exposure to contaminants, leaving you with a job you aren’t prepared for.

So, no matter how large or small the water damages may appear, always call a professional to accurately assess the situation and safely restore your space. At SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga we’ll make it look “Like it never even happened.”

7 Important Tips To Help You Avoid A Water Emergency From Rain

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

A big problem you can face living in California is heavy rain when we least expect it. Many people in California deal with it often. Many floods happen because poor or blocked drainage give the water no place to go and it builds up. Take a look at these following tips to help you be prepared for the next heavy down pour!

Walk around your house and check the foundation. It should be sloped at least 10ft. Builders do this so that water runs away from the home.

Elongate downspouts at least 10 feet from your home to keep it a good and safe distance away. Send the water away from your house, but also make sure it's not just going over to a neighbors house and flooding their home.

Using creative landscaping is a great idea to keep water from getting into your home and from building up.

Clean downspouts and gutters at least twice a year. Gunk builds up in your gutters and downspouts, blocking water. Water needs somewhere to go, so you need to make sure that your gutters and downspouts give it a clear path. Cleaning gutters also helps avoid flooding.

Annually inspect your roof. Catching a roof problem beforehand can save you money and frustration.

Turning off utilities is sometimes necessary during a water emergency. Knowing how turn off utilities is good to reduce stress or panic as well.

Repair any cracks in the foundation so that heavy rain won't sneak in water into your home. A water emergency can start slowly with water seeping through cracks and turn into a huge headache as time goes by.

If you have any questions or are experiencing a water or flood emergency, please give us a call 24/7 at (561)795-5410

Certified Experts to Take Care of Your Water Damage the Right Way

4/1/2021 (Permalink)

IICRC Image SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga is available 24 hours a day for water emergencies, large or small. When you are dealing with water damage.

Water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required.

More than just removing excess water, IICRC-certified restorers have the knowledge and equipment to further dry a home or facility (including substructure materials) completely back to preloss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. If water damage has been present too long, mold will occur.

All IICRC-certified professionals have the training and experience to identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), contain damage, remove contamination and dry materials to ensure that mold will not return.

What is a Moisture Meter?

9/17/2020 (Permalink)

Moisture meter on drywall. What's actually happening when a technician puts a moisture meter on a wet wall?

If you’ve ever had a restoration team repair flood damage to your home, you’ve probably encountered some sci-fi looking devices that the technicians pulled out and occasionally told you were saying something significant. It’s understandable if you wondered whether these are actually high-tech tools or just gimmicks meant to fool you into paying a contractor.

One of these mystery tools is called a “moisture meter” and today we want to explain them a little better so you know what our technicians are looking at. 

Obviously we can only vouch for our own technicians’ honesty, but we can re-assure you that moisture meters are a legitimate piece of technology used throughout the industry. In fact, consumer-grade moisture meters are widely available at hardware retailers or online.

How Do Moisture Meters Work?

There are two main types of moisture meters: resistance meters (pin meters) and capacitance meters (pinless).

Pin meters have two small sharp detectors that are inserted into wood. They detect moisture by measuring the electrical current that travels between the pins. This is a fast and proven method of measuring moisture in wood, but it will slightly damage the material that’s being inspected.

Capacitance meters are good for using on materials that can’t or shouldn’t be penetrated with pins. They work by creating an electromagnetic field that is affected by the moisture in the material.

How Do Technicians Use Moisture Meters?

Your SERVPRO technicians will make an initial moisture reading during their first visit to your building. At that time they’ll make a determination about the best drying method depending on the moisture level and material that’s being restored, and then they’ll get the restoration process started.

Every day after that, a technician will visit your site to take follow-up readings. They’ll use the same moisture meters on the same material to ensure consistency, so if they used a capacitance meter on the wall during the initial inspection, they’ll use a capacitance meter in every other reading.

If you have experienced water damage, contact SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga and let us know how we can help you

Flood Water Contamination Categories

9/17/2020 (Permalink)

Water Damage Catagories How clean is the water damage in your room?

When you have flooding in your building, how safe is it? What is it carrying throughout your room? In the restoration industry, we have categories that we use to describe the type of water involved in a flood.

Category 1

Category 1 water is clean. This water must come from a sanitary water source. When a water supply line breaks, a tub overflows, or fresh rain leaks through a roof, the water starts out as a category 1. Once the water picks up debris or chemicals from the walls or ground or begins to grow bacteria from sitting in place, this categorization can change, but as long as it’s in category 1, water is considered safe.

Category 2

Category 2 water is also called “grey water.” This water carries chemicals or biological contamination. Examples of grey water include flooding that comes out of washing machine or dishwasher (as compared to flooding that comes from the water source into the machines). This water may appear either clear or dingy, but still contains chemicals, soap, or particulate from the dishes or laundry.

Category 2 water can also be created as clean water sits and deteriorates. As mold forms in the water, it changes the contamination level of the flooding.

While grey water isn’t safe for humans to drink or wash in, it isn’t totally useless. Don’t forget that category 2 water is still safe enough to water plants or wash a sidewalk.

Category 3

Category 3 water is often called
black water." This is water that has been grossly contaminated beyond any safe use. Water can become category 3 if sewage backs up or if there is runoff that contains pesticides or toxic chemicals. Wind-driven rain from storms or rising water from flooding bodies of water are also considered category 3.

Just because water is considered “black” does not mean that it will actually appear dirtier than the other categories. It’s always important to take precautions when entering a flooded area, whether it looks dirty or not.

Partner with Professionals Who Know Water

When you’re experiencing water damage, you should always feel comfortable asking your restoration team any questions you have about the water contamination and its effect on the repair process. A good and compassionate professional will take the time to explain what you’re dealing with in your building.

If you have water damage and would like SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga to evaluate your needs, call us at 818-951-6780.

We Can Clean Your Belongings

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO cleaning station. Content cleaning, restoring and saving is our specialty here at SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga.

At SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga we are excited to expand the services the franchise had previously offered. In the past, for example, some services had to be outsourced to an outside party—but this would lead to delays and other possible incidents. Fortunately, this is no longer the case.

Since this year, SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga has offered several new services. We’re particularly excited that we can now clean your damaged belongings if your home or business has a disaster!

Textile Cleaning

Several years ago, we invested in a state-of-the-art textile cleaning facility. Located at our Lenoir office, we are able to clean and deodorize a wide variety of soft contents, such as clothes, stuffed animals, leather, shoes, and more. Many items that were once considered unsalvageable can now be cleaned in-house by our trained professionals.

Modern Cleaning Technology

In addition to textiles, we can also clean jewelry, small electronics, and more. In some cases, we use proprietary cleaning products to hand-clean affected items; in other cases, we use our ultrasonic machines. The ultrasonic technology uses high-frequency pressure waves to agitate a liquid and put much-needed force on the contaminants—allowing us to clean small areas we otherwise couldn’t.

Your Restoration Professionals

We know that your belongings often come with sentimental value and can’t always be replaced. Our team has helped thousands of local homes and businesses recover from damages. If your possessions have been affected by a disaster, know that we are here to help!

Flood Watch vs Flood Warning

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

The last year hit us with two major flooding events—both in June 2019 and February 2020. These incidents were devastating for many homes and businesses—most of whom were not prepared for either incident. While there’s no telling when the next event might occur, it’s important you understand the different alerts authorities will use: flood watch and flood warning.

Flood Watch

When local authorities see that conditions are right for a flood to occur, they will issue a flood watch alert. While a flood watch does not mean that flooding is actively occurring, it does mean that the potential is there. If a watch is issued, you and your family should be alert and start making preparations.

Flood Warning

A flood warning is issued when flooding is actively occurring or is imminent. When this alert is given, you should immediately take action and get to higher ground if you haven’t already. While both types of alerts indicate danger, a flood warning is the most pressing.

Professional Storm Damage Cleanup

For more than a decade, we have helped hundreds of homes and businesses recover from flooding. Our IICRC-certified technicians have the experience and the training to clean up your home and return it to its pre-disaster condition. If you need professional help, you can call us any time at (818) 951-6780!

A Small Water Leak Can Be a Big Problem

9/17/2019 (Permalink)

Copper pipe experiencing a small leak. Very small leak can lead to a very large water loss.

A sudden faucet break with water spewing all over the bathroom, you’d call the plumber to get the damage fixed right away. But, when you have a small drip under your sink, you wait another day, or even weeks to repair the leak.

It might not seem bad in the beginning; even small leaks can become too big for you to handle. By the time you realize it, you’re dealing with a major headache from all the damage and expenses that one simple leak has caused.

Monthly Water Expenses Increase

A dripping sink will affect your water bill. Drips from a leaky faucet or sink can add up to a lot of money on your monthly water bill.

Water Leak Statistics:
The following shows the amount of water that can be lost for various size leaks.

Common water Loss examples:

Leaking Pipe @ 30 drips per second = 2 Gallons per Day
Leaking Pipe @ 60 drips per minute = 5 Gallons per Day
Leaking Pipe @ 120 drips per minute = 11 Gallons per Day

Typical Normal Water Uses:

1 Bath = 42 Gal
1 Shower = 17 Gal to 50 Gal
Wash 1 Load of Clothes = 45 Gal
Flush Toilet = 3 Gal

You can do your own calculations to determine water loss.

Extensive Damage in Your Home

If you think that small leak will always stay small, think again. The damage from the leak can extend to other parts of your home.

Water Extraction

9/17/2019 (Permalink)

Vaccum extracting water on a green carpet. Multiple benefits to extracting water first, whenever a water loss occurs.

As an insurance agent, adjuster or property manager you may wonder why SERVPRO extracts water from soaked rugs and carpets that will most likely end up being thrown away anyway! There are a few reasons for this; first, the weight of a wet carpet or rug requires more manpower to remove and move, so extracting water reduces the weight of the carpets to be removed significantly. This not only makes the material easier to lift and requires fewer technicians but it is safer for our technicians to handle, reducing on-site injuries. Also, by removing the weight of the water we reduce the amount of total weight of the waste removed, helping to keep waste removal fees down. Finally, by extracting and removing the water from wet carpets and rugs we are removing the water from the property entirely! The importance of this cannot be understated because removing water from the property quickly is the first step in preventing further structural damage and mold growth. Dragging wet rugs and carpets from a property without extraction can leave water behind and exasperate an already frustrating  situation.

Understanding How SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga Cleans Up Water Damage Cleanup

5/13/2019 (Permalink)

Giving you a better understanding of the process.

5/3/19

The first thing that the water restoration companies will do is start the mitigation process. This is to mitigate any future damage. For example, if there is a pipe break or a supply line break, it will need to be fixed and the flow of water will need to be stopped. It is crucial to prevent further damage by doing the mitigation process if you want to salvage as much as you can.

The next step is the water cleanup process. This involves removing the water that is already in your flooded home. The restoration company will use special tools to remove the water from your flooded home. Special pumps can be used to take out the water in your home or the water in your business. This is the first step towards the restoration of your flooded home.

The next step is the drying process. This is slightly different than the water cleanup process, because it is more thorough. The water cleanup process will have removed all the flood water in your home or the water in your business. However, there will still be plenty of moisture and wetness left. Water will have seeped into your furniture, into your couches, into your walls, and into your ceiling. In addition, there will be pockets of moisture hidden in between the walls, under the tiles, and above your ceiling. The drying process will remove all this water. Special equipment will be used, both to detect the levels of moisture and to do the drying process so that your flooded home becomes truly dry and cleaned.

The next step is the restoration process. Remember that even if your home is dry, there may be structural damage. It is imperative that you repair whatever needs to be repaired, or your home will not be safe to live in. The restoration process may involve replacing parts of your walls, floor, and ceiling. It may also involve replacing pipes if the cause of the flood was a pipe break or a supply line break. A professional restoration company has the experience to spot what needs replacement and the experience and resources to replace them.

Finally, the company will let you know when your home is safe to live in again. They will do a final inspection of your home to see if it lives up to the standards that all safe homes need to live up to. For example, they need to make sure that your appliances are safe to use and that there is no risk of being electrocuted. They also need to make sure that the ceiling is stable and will not cave in.

This is what the professionals at SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga may provide to your home or business. 

Water Damage With Nobody Home

Garage ceiling comes down due to roof leak

A flooded home is a devastating event for any homeowner. It has the ability to ruin many of your possessions in addition to your property itself. Due to the fact that water damage can quickly become permanent if not addressed as soon as possible, if you do suffer flood damage to your home, it’s important that you call the professionals at SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga to help restore the home. 

Mold thrives in environments where moisture is present which makes flooded parts of a house ideal for mold growth. The existence of mold in a home can be hazardous so it’s important to prevent the mold from growing if at all possible. Removing any wet contents from the home as soon as possible will help to prevent such mold growth around the home.

Regardless of how well you think you can clean up after water damage, you should call the professionals at SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga to ensure that as much of your property is salvaged as possible. But if you do decide to start the cleanup process before we arrive, it’s important that you are properly attired.

Sunland Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall.

There are a number of reasons why your Sunland basement could flood, including: 



    • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
    • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
    • Storm sewer backup
    • Sanitary sewer backup
    • Foundation drainage failure
    • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
    • And many more

cutting out the wall is necessary in some water damage jobs

Water damage is not always an easy thing to take care of when it comes to drying out the area. In some cases we have to cut out parts of walls and tear up floors. This is an example of what it looks like to cut up some of the dry wall when it is soaked with water. This is also a good way of drying the studs to ensure there will be no further water damage in between the wall.
