Escondido Weather

Storm Damage Escondido Weather Escondido Weather Forecast

Finally the sun is coming out and it's planning to stay! Escondido's 10-day weather forecast shows sun all week, some clouds but mostly sun sun sun! The weather these past few months has been very undecided but as we get ready for spring we should be seeing more sun and possibly some spring showers, hopefully they are kept to a minimum. As spring is on it's way that means the pollen will be coming out to play! There's not much you can do about the weather outside but inside the home you can look into getting a HEPA air purifier to keep dust, smoke, and pollen free from the air. Also be sure to change vent filters because they can collect a lot of dust and need to be changed every 3-6 months depending on if you live alone or if you have pets as well.

Stop Mold Before It Starts

2/1/2018 (Permalink)

When water leaks into your home whether it's from the inside or the outside, it becomes a good breeding ground for mold to grow in, especially in high humidity areas of the home such as bathrooms and kitchens. While there is not any significant research on if mold causes any medical issues, it certainly does not smell nice. You'll notice the smell when you first walk in, it's a musty smell. Although you may not be able to see the mold, if you can smell it then it is most likely there on the inside of the walls. Lack of air circulation can cause the smell to become stronger. Keep mold from growing after a water damage by keeping humidity levels down, make sure the room gets good air circulation, and contact SERVPRO of Escondido right away to get the water mitigated before mold has the chance to grow.

High Winds In Vista, CA

Storm Damage High Winds In Vista, CA Fallen Power Line

It was around 6 pm on Sunday January 28th when the lights went out. All the neighbors gathered outside to discuss what was going on. After doing some research online, it said the power would be out till 8pm. Then it said 10pm and lastly it got moved to 12am. The electric company turned out the power to work on the electric lines because the Santa Ana winds are supposed to be picking up this week. When the wind is strong enough, it can do a lot of damage. The wind is expected to be 25-35 mph and the news reported that there will be isolated gusts up to 65-75 mph that can do damage. It's important to prep for high winds because they can pick up items like trampolines and blow them into homes or they can blow unstable structure roofing off or tear trees up that can fall into homes.

Some tips you can do before the winds hit:

  • Pick up loose items around your front and back yard.
  • Inspect your roof for weak areas.
  • Check the trees around your house.
  • Reinforce doors and windows.
  • You can turn the temperature down on your fridge in case power goes out.

When the winds pick up, SERVPRO of Escondido is ready to help! (760)746-6440

Mold Remediation Save Your Home From Mold Mold Mitigation & Remediation

After water damage mold growth can start in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Mold thrives in wet, warm, and humid environments above 60 percent. To avoid the transfer of mold spores from one area of a home to another our crew builds a containments around the affected area. Mold can travel through the air so the containments are important to prevent that from happening. It is important to keep walls and floors completely dry because mold can not grow in dry and harsh areas. Mold has high potential to grow in bathrooms. Promptly fix leaks and mitigate water. Also it is important to ventilate areas that experience a lot of steam such as showers, kitchen cooking areas, and laundry.

Outside Water In The Home

Storm Damage Outside Water In The Home Contaminated Water

It could be a disaster if a home does not have a good drain system when storm rains will not let up. The water will continue to collect until it's pushing on your door searching for any sign of a crack to get inside. If the house is unoccupied for the duration of the storm the water can continue to leak in. A lot of times when water comes from the outside, it becomes dirty. The water can flow small particles of dirt into the crack under the door. Another example of contaminated water is sewage such as a toilet overflowing.

Here are some tips when dealing with contaminated water:

  • Don't spread contaminated water by walking unnecessarily on damaged or wet areas. 
  • Don't turn on the HVAC system if there is a possibility of spreading contaminated air.
  • Don't use household fans to dry the structure and spread contaminants.
  • Avoid all contact with sewage and items contaminated by it.
  • Wash hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items.

Fire Hits North Of Us

Fire Damage Fire Hits North Of Us Eerie Skies In Ventura

The fire in Venture was finally over after it charred homes and a lot of land. The fire left Ventura structures, homes, trees and more in ashes. Our SERVPRO of Escondido team headed up north about 4 hours as soon as the flames were put out. It was an overwhelming time for all who lived in the area. A lot of homes had smoke damage from the black clouds that circulated the sky for weeks. The fire may have been out but you could still smell it in the air, homes and everything in-between. Smoke leaves behind soot, a black flakey substance that can etch its way into concrete, roofs, homes, etc. Soot damages materials and paraphernalia when it settles. It is important to clean all items of smoke damage quickly and thorough as soon as possible. 

SERVPRO of Escondido was able to make people feel comfortable in their homes again. 

If you're dealing with the aftermath of a fire call SERVPRO of Escondido at (760)746-6440. We are here to help you in your time of need.

A Muddy Mess Up North

Storm Damage A Muddy Mess Up North Freeway 101 Shutdown

As SERVPRO of Escondido were finishing up work for the Ventura fire, the heavy rains hit. The rains in Santa Barbara were so heavy that it caused mud slides. All the burned, loose shrubs on land were easily being pushed down hills along with dirt. The homes that had survived the fire were now being taken out by mud slides. Just as we thought the crisis was over. Of course our crew members decided to stay longer to help. The only problem was the mud slides had shut down main and side roads. Our team was stuck in the hotel while the streets were being shut down left and right. All we could do was wait. Finally the storm stopped and the damage was done. Houses that we were working on were now gone. It was a very sad time for so many people, but SERVPRO of Escondido did not give up. Fire, Rain and mud cannot stop us. We found ways around the roads that were shut down and began work immediately. It is amazing to see how people come together during times of need. Our additional crew members drove 7+ hours to get to Santa Barbara, taking back routes and windy roads. It has been long working days for our crews that are up north, some are still there. We are so thankful here at SERVPRO of Escondido to have such hard working team members on our side!
