Stormy Oregon Days Can Bring Unwelcome Losses
With spring showers and rainy days plentiful in the Willamette Valley, losses due to storms happen often. Storms bring about flooding, leaking from roofs, wind damage (needing board-ups) and sometimes water penetration into homes and businesses. Storm losses are category three losses for SERVPRO of Salem West. Category three losses are dark water/highly contaminated water. When it comes to servicing a loss due to storms, it is always considered a contaminated loss. This is due to the fact that storm water cannot be traced, and often flows through many different areas and environments before entering a home.
Wet/flooded basements often occur from storm losses, basement flooding and water intrusion during storms is something that SERVPRO of Salem West has seen many times over the years.
When dealing with a water loss due to storm water intrusion, our technicians are always required to follow safety regulations and always keep the customers wellbeing and safety in mind when stabilizing the loss. In contaminated cases, sanitization of areas needs to take place before air movement/drying come into play. Standing water must also be extracted and the source of the water intrusion needs to mediated/stopped before sanitization can begin.
