SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity and Greater Tehama Counties has years of experience dealing with the  practical elements of water damage restoration.  Our technicians have faced "real-life" mold remediation challenges. SERVPRO is a leader in the mold remediation industry. Water damage restoration and mold remediation go hand in hand.  Mold feeds on moisture.  Regular home and business property maintenance, includes inspection of visible and hidden evidence of water leaks, condensation, infiltration, flooding and mold prone wall and crawl spaces.

Specific Mold Reduction Best Practices:

  • Maintain low humidity levels ideally below 50%. Because humidity levels can change quickly during the day. Use an air conditioner or dehumidifier to level out moisture and air temperatures.
  • Use exhaust fans to ensure adequate ventilation in high-moisture areas like the kitchen, bathrooms and food service areas.
  • Modern exterior and interior paints can include mold inhibitors which help to significantly reduce mold growth.
  • Frequently cleaning of faucets, showers, and sinks, including under storage cabinets with anti-viral, bacterial and microbial disinfectants kills the expansive growth of mold spores within moisture heavy surfaces.
  • Whenever possible remove carpeting from toilet and shower area floors.

Carr Fire Water Damage, Winter Rain Storms, Ash and Toxic Debris Flooding

9/11/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Carr Fire Water Damage, Winter Rain Storms, Ash and Toxic Debris Flooding Rain & Winter Storm Water mixed with Fire and Smoke Damage creates Acidic and Toxic slurry. Contact SERVPRO - 530-222-0200

Redding, California Wildfires and Rain Water

The Carr Fire catastrophic wildfire season of 2018 has produced a scorched earth effect upon the recreational Whiskeytown wilderness as well as long term residual toxic debris and ash accumulation in Shasta County neighborhoods. 

The City of Redding has put together a resource website for debris removal at www.shastareddingrecovers.org

CalRecycle and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control  are orchestrating a massive “opt-in” undertaking working with homeowner who have suffered devastating fire-loss to quickly assess and remove toxic waste – essentially burned metal and toxic chemicals within a property owners ash footprint.  Northern California severe weather rain storm systems will very soon produce downpours in our area.

An important point to understand is that when CalRecycle physically removes a home owners fire damaged cement foundation as well as possibly removing several inches of toxic earth what is left is not necessarily flat earth.   There will be a depression in which the soon coming rain storm water will fill and provide a toxic gray ash sodden reservoir for runoff.

Our hot smoke-filled Shasta Summer with very little wind in a few short weeks will possibly experience water saturated ash pools and flooding from wildfire brush and vegetation scraped landscapes.   Of concern are property owners who have not opted-in to the county debris removal programs and are left with unfinished soot filled plots exposed to now water damaged contents and toxic storm runoff.

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties asks “How can you be prepared for storm water damage to already fire damaged property?”

Flash floods depend on several factors:

  1. The severity and expanse of the fire.
  2. Mountainous and steep terrain which produces culverts and fire-scarred drainage.
  3. The volume of rain.

Looking at the Carr Fire we can say a resounding “Yes” to all three given past Redding severe weather precipitation experiences this time of year.  In fact, Thunderstorms that develop over burn areas can produce flash flooding and debris flows nearly as fast as National Weather Service radar for Shasta County can detect the rainfall.  We urge home and property owners to start preparing now.  Water can enter through roof and siding gaps made worse by exposure to wildfire heat.  Leaking water brings with inside the wet toxic and acidic outside uncleared ash and soot. 

Water Damage Emergency Tips

RECOMMENDATION:  Because of the severity of Carr, Hirz Fire and other local fires the smoke penetration and ash accumulation into residences has been severe.  The first step is to contact a local Redding restoration provider like SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama counties to perform a fast on-site assessment to wipe down and clean these smoke and ash covered contents, ceilings and interior / exterior walls.  

(530) 222-0200

Recognize that it only takes one-half inch of rain water to produce flooding under the right conditions of storm runoff and terrain.  Any left-over ash piles will turn into a toxic slurry with the potential to merge directly into Sacramento River affecting downstream environmental impact areas.  The key is to evaluate property, terrain and points where unseen pools of water will accumulate.

The Catastrophic Power of Water

530-222-0200

Water exposure can be the most damaging substance in the home and commercial property setting.

Suddenly or over time, excessive structural moisture or rapid flooding seeps into the very core of floor, wall and ceiling material causing visible; and more problematic, hidden deterioration. The water damage problem can become a biohazard toxic nightmare when sewage or bacteria infused water permeates the interior living spaces.

Fast and effective intervention can sharply reduce the harmful effects of water intrusion.  SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties, a premiere Redding, California and Shasta County water emergency damage restoration provider can produce amazing results.  Our clean up and restoration professionals can address damaged contents such as precious home furnishings and personal content.
