Storm Damage Redding Snow Storm, Power Outage, Fallen Trees, Home Roof Leaks, Water and Property Damage Redding Power Outage, Snow, Rain and Flood Damage to Your Home? Call SERVPRO 530-222-0200

Redding, California got pummeled with a rare 50-year massive snow storm knocking down trees, powerlines and cutting off power in Shasta County for thousands. 

From the Redding Record Searchlight:  UPDATE: This is the most snow Redding has seen in 50 years. Here's what that looks like

Fortunately, our local power company, Redding Electric Utility works around the clock to restore the grid.  The heavy accumulation of snow caused large tree branches to tear through home roofs and opened structural gaps allowing rain and water flooding into living spaces.  Our crews with SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties are taking calls and responding on-site with water removal equipment, dehumidifiers and drying equipment to prevent further moisture damage.

Call Us for Roof Tarping, Water Removal, Emergency Board Up, Content Removal and Dry Out.

Our highly trained water damage restoration technicians use proven structural drying techniques and document every step of the process from start to finish.  More rain along with higher daytime temperatures continue to melt snow and create severe flooding conditions in many Redding neighborhoods.

Home water damage is largely hidden.   

Residential fire, water, mold and storm, rain and flood emergency repair and clean up restoration services provided by Redding California SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties trained professionals is a testament to the fact that most property owners discover water problems too late.  Much could have been prevented.

** GOOD NEWS -  We are here at 530-222-0200 all the time day or night to respond quickly!

Water pipes and faucet fixtures under kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, behind showers, sheet rock and along internal wall spaces leak, freeze, drip, burst and allow moisture to secretly build up in as-yet-undiscovered spots only to awaken a property owner when the signs appear – mold, paint bubbles, sagging wet walls, dank musty mildew odor and, of course, visible layers of water gravitating to a home’s lowest point.  Carpeting, toilet fixtures, vinyl and hardwood floors retain moisture in the climate-controlled ecosystem of modern home HVAC systems providing a perfect breeding ground for greater toxic problems like mold spores on clothes.

Water flooding can occur from old and under-maintained dishwashers, water heaters, swamp coolers and toilets.  Plumbing pipes running through the second story wall and floor space create greater problems, often, destroying lower story ceilings and floors producing discoloration and soaking into carpeting and home furnishings in bedrooms.  Different colors appear, perhaps yellowish or brown along with water bubbles in peeling and cracking paint and wallpaper stains.

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties

Kitchen and bathroom floors, whether vinyl or hardwood, even in the best of conditions are usually high-traffic spill areas inviting puddle accumulation.  When a pipe ruptures sections already weakened by ongoing foot-traffic exhibit changes in texture such as warping, buckling, curling and in worst-case scenarios the above-foundation floor begins to sink from wet floor joists and structural supports.  Hardwood floors besides changing shape also suck up water into the wood pores to swell and expand.

For more information please take a look at our post: Flood Water Damage Insurance Regulations for Commercial and Residential Property Owners

Keep in mind as well that when you think of water related damage issues you typically don’t think of fire.  Soot and ash certainly, however, a great deal of residential moisture damage insurance claims are the result of firefighting efforts; high pressure water and chemical foam used to extinguish the flames.

Our professional and trained technicians rush drying equipment and odor neutralizers to your home or apartment to prevent further water damage and begin cleaning all types of moisture and plumbing disasters in your home.  We also clean up mold.  Fast air drying and circulation is critical to stopping further damage.

Your possessions and contents are treasured items.  We have a page that describes SERVPRO’s detailed water damage restoration process called “Caring For Your Belongings”.   Also, our ongoing Blog page, among Redding, Shasta County and Northern California home owners is a popular destination for water damage information related to fire, mold, and storm damage.   Many area residents in recent days who visit our site have enjoyed our article entitled Apartments in Redding, California and Winter Water Damage.  Especially during our current stormy weather we are taking calls for water leaks and indoor flooding.

 We are here for you with fast professional 24 / 7 – 365 response and trained, qualified and professional people who have your best interests in mind.

Dangerous Mold is a living organism – a fungus spore.

Mold Remediation Dangerous Mold is a living organism – a fungus spore. Mold Growing in Home? Bad Mildew Odor? Call your Redding, California SERVPRO Mold Cleanup Experts! 530-222-0200

Good mold can be used to make life saving Penicillin based antibiotics.  Everyday foods we all enjoy such as yogurt and certain types of cheese are produced with mold.  Dangerous mold, the type found in your home under sinks and especially hidden within rain-soaked moisture rich wall insulation and unventilated leaking attic spaces is our concern. 

We here at SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties find mold all over hidden areas inside Redding and Shasta County homes

We are professional mold remediators and use specific SERVPRO proprietary commercial grade biocides such as the newly released SERVPROXIDE™ unleashing a new weapon on mold, virus and bacteria outbreaks.

Read our blog article: Mold Cleaning – Residential, Commercial & Hospital Disinfectant

We Know How to Kill Mold!  530-222-0200

Mold Preventative Measure Techniques

  • Schedule regular plumbing checks in your laundry, kitchen and bathroom (especially under cabinets) for leaks and slow drips into wall spaces and porous surfaces.
  • Regular cleaning, for example, along shower door runners; anywhere standing water can remain undried for long periods of time, does wonders to provide healthy living and prevent mold from forming.
  • Carpeting and Wallpaper in Bathrooms, in particular, are mold growth havens because of long-term high-humidity levels from hot showers. Extra cleaning is necessary. 
  • Believe it or not, our over two decades of experience providing hundreds of Redding, California and Shasta County homes with mold remediation and restoration has shown that a hidden mold breeding ground exists between the sheetrock, the glue and the paper-cellulose covering in toilet facilities and kitchens where homeowners have used wall coverings as decoration components. When wet, from water leaks and / or long-term moisture condensation, the glue and paper, overtime, turn into a dark unventilated fertile slurry of nutrients feeding mold colonies.  Unless performed by a mold damage restoration expert removing the wallpaper can result in the accelerated activation and large-scale release of mold spores thus making the homeowners problem exponentially worse.
  • Paint and Mold. Our IICRC trained and certified mold mitigation specialists at SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties recommend not simply painting over mold.  Latex residential interior paint, some of which can contain mold resistant additives, does not kill mold.  Like the wallpaper example above, over time water seepage sinks through paint layers and produces the same toxic environment facilitating the continuation of mold growth and spore release.

Mold Fungus and Clothing

  • Mold outbreaks in the back of closets are quite common. Long term storage of shoes and clothes are ripe for all forms of mold.  Unsanitized and moist footwear tracking in outside pollutants along with unwashed clothing provide ripe conditions for what we have seen as the green mold dust on garments.  Allow adequate dry airflow when hanging up items.  Sweat, body fluid and hair, reside in the fabric weave and hold onto toxic spores. 

If you smell recurring mildew and / or building residents are reporting health problems, then you may be correct in your suspicions that mold and resulting toxic indoor air quality could be present.

Your Redding Storage Unit and Toxic Mold

Mold Remediation Your Redding Storage Unit and Toxic Mold Mold Growing In Your Storage Unit? Call SERVPRO immediately for fast Mold Removal and Deodorization! Redding, California - 530-222-0200

Is mold growing in your storage unit?

We all like to have the peace and security of storing our extra household items and important business documents in a storage unit.  Mold growth, believe it or not, is still quite common.  Perhaps, more so, because storage units are frequently closed, dark environments holding unmoved and uncleaned paperwork, artwork, business equipment, sentimental family heirlooms and especially mold spore containing objects like clothing, curtains and fabric covered furniture. 

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties is a Redding, California Mold Removal and Clean Up Hero. 

Storage units could be described as non-living environments.  In other words, the frequency of human presence to quickly see a mold spot growing and take preventative measures for sanitization is low.  Most storage units are left unattended for months and even years at a time.  We don’t really know what is occurring.  Certainly, with outside units, we are left at the mercy of storage facility property owners and managers to maintain enough dry air and rain water leak-proof roofing to ensure toxic mold protection from moisture build up and retention.  Once again, because these units never see the light of day for long periods of time a rich and fertile, humid and dark habitat exists within which mold spores grow, multiply and thrive.

Climate controlled units help with lowering humidity levels.  What happens is that even in the best of circumstances a once clean unit becomes the epicenter of a mold outbreak because of unclean items transported in from your home or business at the outset.  Quite often mold prevention begins at home.

Mold Awareness and Prevention is the Key to Keeping a Moldy Storage situation from getting worse.

  1. Before you store, check the ceilings, walls and floor of you unit for any musty odor or obvious signs of mold.
  2. Be aware that roof leaks may not be immediately visible. Especially here in the North State and Shasta County we experience long periods of harsh summer heat.  Left unchecked, winter storms bring high levels of rainfall to an isolated and frequently unvisited home or business storage area. 
  3. Be aware of any standing water around the storage facility and ask your storage provider about on-site unit checks.
  4. Proper ventilation is very important to maintain a standard level of dryness. Especially after an extreme wet weather event
  5. When bringing any items to the unit, or removing them, check the floors, ceilings and walls for any signs of mold. That musty smell we are all familiar with will help you here.

Here at SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties we provide a full stack of mold removal and cleaning services because where there is water there is mold.  We provide as necessary full onsite mold assessment, water drying extraction, HEPA and ODOR air scrubber filtration and sanitization, content cleaning.

Ask us about our state-of-the-art Document Drying and Business Record Preservation services.

If you open the door of your storage unit and see the reality of mold you had long suspected was there lurking in the darkness; that bad mildew smell and the green, black and orange spots of a mold colony eating away at your precious assets then call us immediately here at our Redding, California office.

Apartments in Redding, California and Winter Water Damage

Water Damage Apartments in Redding, California and Winter Water Damage Apartment Water Damage from Winter Rain and Storms? Call SERVPRO Now! 530-222-0200 Redding, California

Shasta County Commercial Property, Multi-Unit Housing and SERVPRO Water Damage Emergency Cleanup

Landlords and property managers are frontline providers of housing to our local communities.  The residential properties they own and manage are, of necessity, expected to be maintained at an acceptable level of health and safety.   Many times, we here at SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties are called out to provide fast water extraction drying to a premise’s floors, walls and ceiling because of an unexpected sudden rain water leak or broken shower pipe flood pouring into the sheetrock and insulation of a tenant’s apartment or condominium.

Winter snow, ice and wet freezing rain can hit hard during these extreme weather seasons.  Windows and doors require proper weather stripping to prevent water leaks and seepage.  But that is only the first step of protection from outside moisture.  Examine the tightness of your exterior doors.  Check the fidelity and structural soundness of rain gutters and your apartment complex roofs to ensure tenant water damage property protection.

Outside areas also include the necessity for properly sloped landscape and parking lot water drainage intakes cleared of seasonal debris accumulation.  Slip-and-fall safety and prevention is the key because proper signage, effective water runoff, slip resistant walkway matting all reduces liability insurance claims because tenants have a safe pathway to vehicles, common areas, event rooms, laundry and workout areas.

Rain gutters and drain spouts, often, quite high on the edge of multi-story, multi-unit commercial housing complexes are easy to miss during seasonal maintenance checkups.  Water back up and leaking through cracks into the walls and hidden areas of adjoining units creates hidden damage to multiple adjoining apartment units.  That is when the problems really begin because not only is there water damage, but the wet and untreated surfaces allow preexisting mold spores to thrive and grow.

Everyone likes shade, especially during the scorching heat of Redding summer days.  Large trees with bushy overhanging branches look great in the hot afternoon.  However, when winter storms strike those same trees with their aging untrimmed and brittle branches are waiting to fall upon roofs, gutters, eves, carports and possibly a tenant. Also, utility power lines and telephone poles, by themselves are dangerous enough during strong winter wind and rain storms.  When those same lines, over time, become embedded in the branches of uncleared brush and tree limbs the situation becomes exponentially more dangerous for resident safety and opens the door to extensive property and structural damage.

Because SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties has over two decades of water, mold and fire damage clean up and restoration to just about every apartment complex from Weed, Yreka, Mt. Shasta and Red Bluff we are intimately familiar with how to quickly scale our experts and resources for any type of inside or outside property damage.   We have also had the opportunity to develop close working relationships with many well-known local insurance agents and adjusters

You need the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile!

An extraordinary benefit of having SERVPRO on your side is that we provide a **FREE onsite disaster preparedness assessment aptly named the Emergency Ready Profile.   The ERP is a preexisting report (available on Apple or Android mobile devices) specifically outlining the phone numbers of first responders, property managers, photos and location information of key gas, electric and water shut off locations on your property.  In a nutshell, the ERP provides peace of mind that SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties has your back – day and night.

Roof Snow, Ice, Frozen Pipe Damage from Winter Rain and Extreme Weather Storms

Business and major home property damage can occur with very little warning from freezing rain, ice storms, snowfall accumulations and cold winter temperatures.  During the Redding, California winter months the higher communities and mountain passes in Shasta and surrounding counties like Trinity and Siskiyou frequently experience longer travel delays and road closures from higher than average snow levels.  Throughout these winter months Northern California is visited by dark and quickly moving low hanging storm clouds facilitating fast damaging winds and heavy mountain snow drops. Wind gusts can topple trees and rip loose shingles and siding from residential dwellings at speeds of 40 to even 50 mph.

Roofs and Ice Damming

Gutters and roofs also suffer damage from large drifts and piles of snow weighing down lose or weak beams.  Especially when afternoon temperatures rise from occasional sunlight and cause snow to melt and then refreeze in cracks, under shingles and expand to the point of a possible structural collapse.  This cycle of frozen water thawing and refreezing causes small cracks, most of the time hidden, to become exposed and produce unsound structural integrity this continuous cycle of thaw, freeze and expansion continues; all the while, snow continues to fall producing more stress.  

Another serious result of winter snow storms is when ice buildup forms on the gutters and eves.  As the surface is exposed to slightly higher temperatures melting water slides around the frozen encasement and creates an ever increasing weight of unsupported refrozen ice underneath roof supports. 

The good news is that most correctly built and up-to-code roofs can support quite a bit of additional weight.  Construction industry experts agree that roofs that are maintained and in sound condition can hold 20-pound snow packs per square foot.  New home construction in the SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties regions, under extreme weather conditions, are built to support much more weight.  One cubic inch of water or ten to 12 inches if snow weighs in at approximately 5 lbs per square foot of roof.  Thus, if your roof is not decaying from age or damage, up to 4 feet of snow is a widely accepted benchmark for determining the risk level of collapse.

Frozen Pipes

Water inside pipes becomes cold to the point of freezing.  Once again, over time, the contraction and expansion of seasonal freeze and thaw patterns weakens traditional copper, galvanized, iron and especially PVC plumbing. Pipes are more likely to burst and rupture seams when they are exposed to below freezing temperatures in the 20 degree Fahrenheit range.  Our experienced SERVPRO professionals can safely repair water damage resulting from frozen pipes.   Winterizing plumbing fixtures exposed to outside elements, such as pipes in laundry rooms, outside access bathrooms, within garage or exterior facing wall spaces, and exposed sewer plumbing would include insulating those pipes and fittings with commercial grade foam insulation.

SERVPRO is Here For You!  

Northern California Winter has arrived.  We brave the elements to serve the mountain communities of Trinity, Siskiyou and Lassen Counties along with our local areas of Shasta and Tehama.  Fast and effective SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties experts have specialized training in water, fire, thunderstorm, snow, and home property damage cleanup, water extraction dryout and restoration.

California wildfires, like Redding’s #CarrFire and Butte County’s #CampFire consuming to apocalyptic devastation massive sections of overgrown forest throughout our SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties region, extended, by surprise in early November, to destroy the entire town of Paradise in Butte County.  Our sister SERVPRO franchise in Chico suffered loss.  The fortitude and support of national SERVPRO STORM teams rushing to aid continues deploying an ever-increasing multitude of fire damage restoration professionals, air cleaning equipment and resources from the San Francisco Bay area, Southern California, Oregon, Nevada and beyond, to soot, ash and smoke odor infused structures in the immediate Northern California footprint of wildfire damaged communities.

Residents and business owners increasingly enjoy all that California has to offer and choose to build homes, commercial buildings, and multi-unit housing properties in what are known as “wildland urban interface areas”.  These areas such as the Paradise community, Magalia and in Redding the French Gulch, Shasta, Keswick, Swazey Drive, Centerville, Marylake Subdivison, Lake Redding Estates, River Ridge Park areas and many others are surrounded by compressed and largely uncleared, indefensible, Manzanita trees fueled by natural oils that burn with ferociously hot temperatures.  High winds and long hot dry Summers create these all-to-often perfect fire-storm conditions igniting California oakwoods, Juniper steppe woodlands, mixed conifer and fir forests, Ponderosa shrubs and Cedar, hemlock, and Douglas fir wildland areas; all surrounding the ever-expanding neighborhoods, homes, businesses and schools.

Let’s talk about Homeowners Insurance:  It should be very simple.  Policy premium is calculated from the cost to replace the premises value.  The problem arises when multiple massive California wildfires occur in a short time.  Essentially insurance companies run out of money to continue to write home and property coverage.  Market value of a home and it’s replacement cost are two different things.  A totally burned structure includes the additional insurance claims components of toxic residue disposal, soil testing and debris clean up along with a whole host of additional unknown factors such as contractor licensing, Shasta, Trinity, Tehama and Butte Counties permitting, lead and asbestos testing along with local, state and federal regulations.

The point is that California insured who own homes must be insured to value.  Many, it turns out; are not. This could be from not keeping up to date on increased valuations from remodeling and home improvement or insufficient value calculations at the inception of the policy.  The key target insurance providers are looking for is that property owners meet the 80% of replacement value threshold.  This industry threshold is known as “coinsurance.”  When total-loss occurs the policy limit is paid out and when partial loss occurs the full amount of repairs is paid out.  SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties has been working with insurance agents and insurance claims adjusters for years.  We work with all the well-respected names like State Farm, Farmers, AllState, and many others. We have long standing friendships and relationships with our local Redding, Mt. Shasta, Red Bluff, Weed, Yreka and Weaverville insurance property and casualty specialists.   

Defensible Space Zones

There are two zones to consider when clearing and maintaining open space.

Zone 1 – Extends out 30 feet from the structure and decks.

Zone 2 – Extends an additional 100 feet out.

A recent example tells the story.  Our SERVPRO soot and smoke odor inspection teams are regularly called out to homes that survived the Carr Fire.  Many residents tell their story of coming back and finding that the early efforts they made to clear brush, remove trees, take down dead branches and large dry collections of leaves as well as install gravel and water saving landscaping open spaces all paid off when the flames burned just up to the edge of their property and stopped. 

Within both of these zones removal is required for excess vegetation, dead plants, woodpiles, leaves and pine needles and certainly tightly overgrown Manzanita and wildland grass that fuels the ignition point of a not-if-but-when wildfire disaster.

Winter Ice and Water Damage from Northern California Storms

December is upon us and we have experienced the beginning stages of rain and snow accumulations.  January, February and into 2019 will bring the heavy onset of Winter beauty and the ravages of high winds, ice, rain, and the resulting storm damage to homes and businesses.  As always, SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties stands ready in catastrophe situations following a disaster across multiple regions.

SERVPRO’s STORM response is unmatched in the ability of scale and deploy resources, equipment and personnel at a moments notice to water and fire damaged and ravaged local communities such as what we saw with the Carr Fire in Redding and now with the Camp Fire destroying Paradise and affecting the living conditions of thousands in Butte County.

Temperature drops from freezing cold cause water pipes to freeze and crack.  Ice expansion through melting and refreezing in roof structures damages shingles, crawl spaces and overall structural integrity.  SERVPRO’s experience and quick response servicing commercial businesses and residences in Shasta, Trinity & Tehama Counties is focused on saving property and reducing insurance claims.

Follow these winter tips:

  • Caltrans warns motorists to check their brakes, tires and windshield wipers, and make sure their vehicle's defroster, heater and exhaust system are in good condition.
  • Caltrans road advisories suggests motorists add special winter solvent to their windshield-washer reservoir to prevent icing. 
  • Check your vehicles to ensure they have plenty of antifreeze.  Vehicle tires require sufficient tread for icy and slick conditions. 
  • Fill you gas tank before travelling. 
  • If possible, avoid road travel altogether. 
  • Caltrans also recommends motorists take water, food, warm blankets and extra clothing in case of long delays.

During our winter storms frost and freezes in higher mountain elevations will endure considerably colder temperatures and longer freezing conditions than the lower Redding areas of the Shasta Basin.  Polar and arctic air masses move South into Northern California from central Canada.  These dry and cold arctic blasts along with strong winds produce property damage from fallen trees and already weakened building materials.

Be Prepared.  Be Safe. SERVPRO is your trusted severe weather emergency responder.
