SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW / Coronado Why SERVPRO News And Updates

Rain is very important for the natural environment but it can become a problem if it gets into your home.  One of the most common sources of water damage in a home is rain and it can get into your home in so many ways.   

Excessive rainfall can lead to considerable damage in a home as it has the potential to flood basements, ruin foundations and building materials, and contribute to mold growth.  

Rain water can spread within a home by getting absorbed into porous building materials and if the problem is not dealt with right away, the damage can become extensive.  The following are some of the ways rain can cause damage in your home:

  • Seepage: Rain commonly enters homes by seeping through cracks in the foundation. This is much more likely to happen if the gutters are not draining properly and rain water gathers near the sides of the house.  Too much seepage can begin to ruin the foundation.
  • Roof Leaks: If there is any damage to the roof, rain water can leak into the attic or upper floors and cause structural damage to the walls and ceilings.
  • Flooding: Excessive rain can lead to flooding in your home which causes extensive damage and brings in microorganisms that can be harmful to your health.
  • Mold: Rainy or wet conditions contribute to mold growth because mold needs moisture to thrive. Mold not only causes serious property damage, but also threatens your health.

Servpro Box Truck Have Questions? Call Us Today – (619) 435-0365

We love sharing letters and testimonials from our satisfied customers. Here is one we received after a flood in North Park, Ca. 

David, had a major flood due to a 90-year-old water main that burst, creating a sink hole, which caused flooding in homes, streets, and parks.  

"Have you just been wiped out? Then you'll want Scott - NOW. I'm writing this three days into a major flood, and on a weekend- Scott has been here everyday as well as tending to other customers at the same time! I am extremely impressed with his and his crew's work ethic. I'm going through this flooding issue a second time in about a year (due to the city's crappy infrastructure) - and SERVPRO has been an actual dream to work with. These guys had me dug out, mud'ed out, washed, and in the process of drying before anyone else on the street! Like I said, they are still working on my place as I write this - but the care & professionalism by Scott & crew has been so impressive that I just had to write this. THANK YOU SCOTT & SERVPRO TEAM!!"
