Rainstorm Ceiling Damage
Eroded False Ceiling Panel
In this residential home, an unnoticed roof leaked caused damage overtime to this false ceiling of an attic. Homeowners were unaware of the roof leak near the far end of the house, which has been seeping into the false ceiling panel over time.
With each rainfall or moisture that was seeping through the roof leak, gradually eroded both the roof and panel causing a larger opening and mold buildup. As a heavy rainstorm fell upon the local community, the final push caused a hole in both the roof and ceiling, resulting in minor water damage throughout the attic flooring.
Upon the arrival of SERVPRO of Lancaster East, they discovered other areas affected by the continuous leak, such as mold growths and high moisture areas. The restoration process went underway and remediated, "Like it never even happened."
A helpful reminder to both commercial and residential owners to regularly check for any leaks within roofing to be handled and corrected right away.

Rainy Day Hazard: Downed Power Lines
Downed Power Line on Residential Road
As winter begins to climb towards its peak, weather patterns are shifting as well. One of the most common weather patterns is high wind rainstorms which are a common occurrence in the Antelope Valley. These high wind rainstorms can cause hazards throughout commercial and residential areas.
One of the most dangerous hazards is a downed power line or pole. This can cause fatal injuries if in close contact, and exemplified through the wet surrounding area. Here are a few tips to have in mind:
Stay Away: Do not approach or touch the wire or any person or object in contact with the wire. Serious injuries can others to you and others around you.
Call 911: Report an electrical emergency and inform about the downed power line.
Avoid Surrounding Water: If there is water puddled around or near the downed power line, stay as far away. Water conducts electricity and can cause serious injury to you and those around you.
Report one if you see it, and if others are already on the scene, help should be on its way. Stay safe and stay dry!
