Water Damage Flooding 101 SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin 503-684-5829

Flooding can occur any time of the year. We here in the PNW have a close relationship with that liquid sunshine we call rain. Even though it is a common sight for us it is important that we know common weather terms and what we need to do when we hear them.

For instance, do you know the difference between a “Flood Warning” and a “Flood Watch”? Although the two terms sound very similar they are different and need to elicit a different response. A

  • Flood Warning means that flooding will occur soon if it has not already. You need to move to higher ground or evacuate the area immediately.
  • Flood Watch means that flooding is possible. You need to listen to local radio or TV news stations and weather centers for more information. A Flood Watch can become a Flood Warning.

If flooding or other water damage affects your property make sure to call the team with 27+ years of experience in the community. #SERVPROTigard #SERVPRO #SERVPROBeaverton

Save some money with your heat settings

Fire Damage Save some money with your heat settings SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin 503-684-5829

Heating and energy costs can really add up and affect your monthly budget. To save a few dollars and unneeded energy you can set thermostats at 68° when you are home and at night and when you are not going to be home for most of the day you can turn it down farther to 65-66° for additional savings.

Energy costs and monthly bills can be a daunting part of our lives, but by making small changes you can save yourself some green while being greener for our planet at the same time.

When customers have had water losses, one of the first things we do is add equipment, this is great for drying out building materials and contents. But not so great for your energy bill. We encourage customers to look at their past years' bill for the same time period and submit those to the insurance carrier for reimbursement. If water or fire damage should affect your home or office make sure to call the team with 27+ years of experience in the community, SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin.

Water Damage Who to call when ice damage affects your home. When your home or property are affected by ice damage, call the team with 27+ years of experience. SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin 503-684-5829

Icicles can be pretty, but ice dams can lead to water damage. Even though our temperatures like to hang out about 40 degrees Fahrenheit with just a few days below freezing it is possible to have an ice damn built up. Though an ice damn may not seem like a big deal, they can cause water to pool behind the dam on your roof and cause water to leak into your home. Worse still is it may be causing a leak into an attic space that you do not check often, meaning that damage can go on unnoticed for a while causing the damage to spread and potentially leading to secondary damage like rot, microbial growth or mold.

If you have damage from ice damns or gutter backups make sure to call the team that has over 27 years of experience serving our customers in the metro and surrounding area. Give SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin a call at 503-684-5829.
