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.

Storm and Wind Damage: Wildfire Brush, Vegetation and Dry Trees

6/22/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Storm and Wind Damage: Wildfire Brush, Vegetation and Dry Trees Create defensible wildfire space around you home from dry brush from winter storms.

California Storms create potential wildfire plant growth.

Redding, CA is entering the hot zone.  Moving from the typical cool wet winter into the hot summer thermal layers of our Shasta basin.  Because we are in Northern California we in the inland lower elevations do not experience the humid and wet afternoon thunderstorms of other regions of the United States.

The wet and rainy winters leave scattered brush and downed tree branches strewn about the landscape.  The rain also saturates the ground providing spring plant and grass growth.  Wild vegetation accumulates and then becomes baked and dried under the scorching summer heat. 

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties responds to the immediate storm damage aftermath of wind-blown and wet scattered debris.   We understand the seasonal aftereffect of uncleared, now dry, wood, branches and combustible building material ready for a simple spark to create a firestorm.

Rain Storm / Fire Storm / Mold Growth

Storms create the potential for both water and fire damage. Also, please remember that mold contamination can creep into home or commercial water damage from a storm or the fire department water used to put out a fire created by uncleared storm material. SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties follows strict guidelines and industry protocol when mitigating mold. We isolate the affected area using physical barriers and a negative air pressure chamber for proper remediation. Mold must be taken very seriously; it poses health risks. It’s important to address any flooding issues as quickly as possible, because mold can begin to grow within 48-72 hours.

We’re a preferred vendor with most Northern California insurance companies. And our 1-4-8 Emergency Service guarantees:

1) within one hour of contact, we're on the phone to arrange services.

4) within four hours, we're on site to begin mitigation services.

8) within eight hours, we'll have a prepared statement and a plan of action outlined for you and your insurance company.

Don’t leave your storm repair to just anyone. Trust the nationwide leader in storm cleanup at SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties.

Storm Damage and the Redding, CA Fire Season

6/8/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Storm Damage and the Redding, CA Fire Season Uncleared downed trees and brush from winter storms can dry in the hot Redding summer heat and become fuel for WildFires!

Don’t forget that fallen trees and branches from winter storms lead to hot dry vegetation during Shasta County Summer fire season.

Redding, California and Shasta County are approaching the hot days of summer.  Mountain towns like McCloud, Mt. Shasta, Dunsmuir, Burney, Weaverville, and Hayfork are located in backcountry elevations where cold and hot air mix to produce those summer thunder and lightning storms.  Dime size hail, winds in excess of 30 mph, frequent lightning and locally heavy rain produce unexpected severe thunderstorm warnings.   Redding is at the northern tip of what is known as the NORTHERN SACRAMENTO VALLEY SURFACE MOISTURE CONVERGENCE ZONE.   Ringed with mountains, Redding sits at the center of the northern geological narrowing of terrain accumulating weather system pressure build up.  Thunderstorms can develop particularly in the evening hours if there is sufficient moisture and instability.  All of this is to say that storm damage is possible anytime and anywhere.

Heavy rainfall and storms in Northern California can be thought of in two ways. 

  • The immediate effect from high wind storms creates downed tree limbs, power line failure and immediate property damage on roof and building structures.  Water flooding on poorly sloped and graded surface areas around residential foundations creates basement flooding and water leaking into living spaces. 
  • Plant vegetation, tree limbs and scattered debris left after the storm passes along with new plant growth from winter rain fall creates, in the spring and summer, an accumulated tinderbox of combustible dry fuel waiting for a spark on a blistering hot Redding afternoon.

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties understands all these dangers.  Our many years helping North State residents with water and fire damage to homes and businesses has made us a valuable restoration provider. Storms can bring a wide range of immediate property damage as well as unexpected future catastrophic damage from uncleared dried and hot lingering debris aftermath of seasonal rain and floods.

Please call us for any property damage emergency 24 / 7 – 365 at (530) 222-0200.

Redding Storms, Flood Water and SERVPRO

3/19/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Redding Storms, Flood Water and SERVPRO Storm Damage Emergency Clean Up and Restoration - Trust SERVPRO - (530) 222-0200

Shasta County disaster relief and storm clean up requires a SERVPRO professional with protective gear, cleaning techniques, tools and state of the art restoration industry products to adequately recognize and treat both the seen and unseen health concerns and hazards of the devastation a severe rain, thunderstorm or flooding event. 

Although many Redding homes would suffer some property loss...

...our trained restoration technicians can often save, clean and restore the sentimental memories of family heirlooms and irreplaceable family furnishings. 

Because we are experts in fast storm response and personal protection equipment (PPE) we wanted to pass along a few tips.

1.     Respirators and goggles in post-flood conditions are especially critical. Walking into a flood damaged home unprepared could be catastrophic.  Household detergents and industrial chemicals, oil, gasoline and sewage swelling up from the earth by the rising flood water create a hazardous mix of pathogens and fumes.  >>> Natural Disaster Flooding

2.     Keep in mind that animals, snakes, predators and wildlife along with formerly friendly family dogs and cats become confused and displaced when flood water invades their territory. The American Red Cross provides some helpful animal post-storm resources here:  >>> Pet Disaster Preparedness

3.     Storms produce debris. Downed trees, live electric transformers sparking and flashing in the rain-soaked pools, branches, displaced vehicles, roof asphalt and shingles and any number of structural material from residences. Extreme care and caution is required.  Read our article: Flood Water Damage Insurance Regulations for Commercial and Residential Property Owners for further information

4.     A word about insurance claims. Flood water silt and mud bury and remove property.  Homeowners must prepare by taking pre-storm photos and videos of inside and outside spaces and a full inventory of personal belongings. Photos with a date and time provide proof to an insurer and expedite a successful claim.

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties storm, flood and water damage team will respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at (530) 222-0200. 

Our goal is to respond quickly, dry and save property to limit damage and reduce the costs of restoration.  We cover the entire region of Shasta County and have served the local Redding, California community for many years.

Northern California Freezing Winter Snow Storms and SERVPRO

Storm Damage Northern California Freezing Winter Snow Storms and SERVPRO SERVPRO North Shasta Snow and Freezing Rain Emergency Response - Always Ready

During late February and early March in Redding and the lower elevations of Shasta and North State counties are experiencing an unexpected Winter blast bringing high winds and large accumulations of snow.  As always, SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties stands ready in catastrophe situations following a disaster across multiple regions.

Our capability as a SERVPRO franchise to deploy and scale our personnel and equipment is unparalleled.

With resources including multiple stage locations throughout Northern California resources can be mobilized at any number of offices throughout our coverage regions. We offer immediate help to secure your property and prevent further damage from occurring.

Cold weather extremes and freezing temperature drops cause pipes to freeze and burst.  Ice accumulation in roof gutters and eaves melts and refreezes creating unexpected water damage to shingles, crawl spaces damaging structural integrity.  This is exactly why SERVPRO’s experience and fast response is focused on saving property and reducing insurance claims.

Current alerts from the National Weather Service include the following:

* WHAT...Heavy snow possible. Total snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches, with localized amounts greater than 16 inches possible above 5000 feet.

* WHERE...Western Siskiyou County, South Central Siskiyou County and North Central and Southeast Siskiyou County above 3000 ft. The Mt Shasta City area, Black Butte Summit, Highway 89, Scott
Mt. Summit, and Greyback road.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Travel could be very difficult to impossible, including during the morning commute. Significant reductions in visibility are possible. Blowing snow will also be possible in the Black Butte Summit area and on Highway 89.

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.

Make sure vehicles have plenty of antifreeze. Caltrans suggests drivers add special solvent to their windshield-washer reservoir to prevent icing.  Also make sure your tires have good tread for icy and wet conditions.  Also fill your tank with gas before travelling.  Avoid traveling and remain home if possible. Caltrans also recommends motorists take water, food, warm blankets and extra clothing in case of long delays.

Go to http://www.dot.ca.gov/cttravel/chain-controls.html for chain requirements and installation information. Go to the District 2 Winter Maintenance and Operations web page at www.dot.ca.gov/dist2/chainup/winmaint.htm for more winter driving and preparation tips.

Also local Redding weather forecasts are at these links:

http://krcrtv.com/weather/radar

https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mfr/HAZARD

During our winter storms frost and freezes the sheltered lower elevations will have colder temperatures and longer duration freezing conditions than the thermal belt areas of west Redding.  This occurs when a polar or arctic air mass moves southwestward from central Canada into Northern California.  The air mass is very cold and dry and these events are usually accompanied by strong north to northeast winds. The chilly winds of the last week in February in effect eliminate the thermal belt of Shasta Basin.

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

Storm Damage - Redding, Red Bluff and Northern Shasta County

12/20/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Storm Damage - Redding, Red Bluff and Northern Shasta County Redding, Red Bluff, Shasta - Strong winter storm systems bring damaging winds, heavy rain and more flooding.

Severe Weather in Northern California

We think of storms as severe weather producing hail, damaging winds, thunderstorms, lightning and heavy rain.  Certainly, with Shasta County being Northern California’s gateway to the mountains, snowstorms, ice storms, blizzards and freezing temperatures also contribute to interior and exterior home, basement and business property damage affecting roof, shingle, siding and windows resulting from broken tree branches, power outages, flooding, heavy snow and ice accumulation. SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity and Greater Tehama Counties recommends a couple of links for local weather forecasts.  Serving Redding, Red Bluff and the surrounding region KRCR TV provides accurate and ongoing storm alerts.  Another severe winter weather resource for timely information serving the Shasta Lake and Northern Shasta County areas is found here.

The continuing damage and aftermath of a severe weather event goes far beyond the immediate effect.  For example, because the City of Redding is located within the Sacramento River watershed the residual water from the higher elevations, through drainage and snow melt, accumulates as storm water and thus becomes one of California’s most valuable resources which quite often requires emergency management.  As our extensive years of restoration experience in water and storm damage clean up have shown, water run off produces unexpected results through spillage, leaks, sludge waste and raw material storm drainage systems, damaged pipes and sewers.  Curbs, gullies, city roads, aqueducts, ditches, and manmade water channels all carry vast amounts of storm water into the Shasta basin.

Storm water in many instances becomes wastewater picking up any variety of solid materials, liquids, hazardous waste, debris and litter.  Think for a moment of what runoff water carries as it comes into contact with residential neighborhoods and commercial industrial manufacturing areas of town; paints, varnishes and solvents; soil, sand, oil and other automotive fluids, yard waste, pesticides, fertilizers, body fluids, fecal and heavy metal waste. Additionally, things we do not ordinarily think about such as residential car washing, air conditioning condensation, water from crawl space pumps, untreated swimming pool discharge water, and landscaping; the everyday activities for human life become participants in the storm damage story.

When you deal with storm, flood or water damage call us 24 hours a day at (530) 222-0200.  We make home owners and insurance agents “heroes”. Our immediate action and a fast response, lessens damage, limits further damage and reduces restoration costs.  Our highly trained crews have the specialized equipment and resources to handle the job, large or small, residential and commercial.

Storm Damage Inspection Strategy - Redding & Shasta County California

Storm Damage Storm Damage Inspection Strategy - Redding & Shasta County California Understand storm damage inspection

Assessing Redding / Shasta County California Storm Damage

The beauty of Northern California seasons are often tempered by powerful storms, with heavy rains, strong winds and destructive hail. Through it all, your home protects you from the elements, so be sure to check it for damage afterward.

Even if you have no reason to suspect that damage occurred, check your home and its surroundings (once it’s safe to do so, of course). It’s important to identify problems, make emergency repairs and determine if an insurance claim is necessary.

SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties provides this list of Storm Problems areas.

Roof

Your roof might be the area of your home most vulnerable to damage in a storm, because so many things can impact it. Whether you’ve had high winds and downed tree branches or just a simple hailstorm, look for these indicators of damage:

  • Holes in the roof
  • Missing Shingles
  • Leaks in your roof or ceiling
  • Split seams

Building Exteriors

While siding, stucco and brick all are durable, they also are susceptible to storm damage. In some instances, homeowners don’t notice until it’s too late to file a claim, so check carefully for:

  • Cracking, chipping or dings and dents on siding. Even if there doesn’t appear to be damage at first, check again at a different time of day. You may see something you missed when the lighting is different.

  • Holes in stucco. This is a serious problem, even when small, so look closely. If you find holes, have a professional conduct a full property inspection.

  • Damaged brick and tuck pointing. While brick typically holds up well, a check can identify any problem areas.

  • Detached or damaged trim, gutters, etc.

Storm and flood damage require specialized restoration techniques and equipment. When a storm hits your Redding home, you need the company with storm damage experience and expertise. SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties can respond immediately to storm and flooding conditions.
