How to Stay Safe During a Storm in Pacific Northwest

4/27/2022 (Permalink)

We don't get huge storms here in the Pacific Northwest like other parts of the country, but we are no stranger to high winds, lots of rain, and blackouts. SERVPRO of Yamhill & Tillamook Counties wants to help you stay as safe as possible when storms rage. 

Below are tips on how to stay safe during a thunderstorm while inside a building:

  • Stay away from all windows or glass walls, especially during a lightning storm
  • Unplug appliances if possible
  • Pay attention to all alerts and warnings, as a thunderstorm can develop into a tornado if powerful enough
  • Avoid running water if possible since electricity can travel through plumbing

Even here in the PNW weather is unpredictable; it can also change in an instant without much warning. If a thunderstorm does happen to turn into a larger storm on the North Coast consider the following tips:

  • If the building has a basement or storm cellar, head there immediately
  • Use your arms to protect your head and neck in the event of flying debris or shattered windows
  • Do not leave the safe area until the local alerting system says it is safe to do so


Remember, SERVPRO of Yamhill & Tillamook Counties is Here to Help. Our trained team members will show up ready to go and can assist in cleanup and restoration after a thunderstorm, lightning storm, or other property damage. 

How to prepare an emergency kit for a severe storm in Tillamook

4/27/2022 (Permalink)

Tillamook is no stranger to severe storms. If a community is not prepared for a severe storm, the results can be devastating. SERVPRO of Yamhill & Tillamook Counties wants to share some of the following tips to keep in mind while putting together an emergency kit in the event of a severe storm approaching. FEMA has stated that emergency kits should include some of the following:

  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Any medicine currently being taken
  • Emergency food and water
  • Extra change of clothes and shoes
  • Pet supplies if you are taking care of an animal


These are just a few examples of what an emergency kit should contain. Residents can add whatever else may be needed. There should be an emergency kit in every residential building as well as all commercial buildings if possible. Aside from having an emergency kit ready, a plan should also be in place. If there is a designated storm area inside the home or office, occupants should head there with the emergency kits. Severe storms cannot be avoided, but with the right tools and resources, they can be easier to deal with.

Those on the Oregon Coast are no stranger to windy days, in fact, you just learn to live with the wind and rain.

The Importance of Extraction

10/27/2020 (Permalink)

When a water damage occurs in a home or business, the first step in water mitigation is to remove all of the water in the affected area as quickly as possible. this will stop the water from spreading to other rooms, as well as reducing the risk of permanent damage to hardwood floors and furniture.

When extracting water from a wet surface that may not have standing water will remove any water that is trapped in the cracks and grooves of the surface. this speeds up the drying process rather than only using a dehumidifier.

The process of water not only help prevent damage to the hardwood and furniture, but also reduce the risk of mold growth on the structure as standing water and damp areas are ideal for mold growth

The science of drying

Psychrometrics : The Science of Drying

Psychrometry is the study of the air and its properties. The properties of temperature, humidity, vapor pressure and dew point are measured to evaluate air conditions in the structure, enabling a SERVPRO® Franchise Professional to create the proper atmosphere for more efficient drying.  

Water can damage materials in two ways:  first, by absorption through direct contact with water; and second, absorption of moisture from the air. Measuring the moisture content of the air is critical to the drying process.  

At SERVPRO we employ several tools and techniques to aid the drying process and accelerate it as well.  Our most important asset is our people and the knowledge they bring to the damaged property.  We are highly trained teams of IICRC Certified Water damage restoration professionals.  This means when you call SERVPRO you are getting the highest quality of professionals to address any size disaster.  We are very proud to be a leader in the emergency services and disaster restoration industry.  

Assessing damage risk

10/14/2020 (Permalink)

IS YOUR FACILITY AT RISK?

I found this Risk Assessment Questionnaire and I believe that it is good tool to use to help stay on top of the maintenance and operations of your facility.*

This assessment covers Fire Protection, Electrical, Plumbing, HAVAC, Operational Issues and Community Rooms.

Over the years we have restored many businesses that had fallen behind on their maintenance and had AVOIDABLE DISASTERS!

Note: State and Local government generally establish inspection schedules as part of building codes. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) establish requirements related to workplace safety. Use of this questionnaire should take into account the various regulatory requirements for inspection and testing. Also, a building’s use and occupancy, including visitors, may determine the level or risk—the presence of children and/or elderly or disabled persons may increase some risk.

Kincade Fire Damage update

10/31/2019 (Permalink)

As the Kincade fire continues to cause devastation in north California, today we got great news!

As of today the fire is now 60% contained. Unfortunately the fire burned more than 76,000 acres and damaged nearly 100 structures both commercial and residential. 

On Tuesday PG&E cut power to millions of residences and business. However, today there are only about 35,000 people without power. That is great news! In addition some of the mandatory evacuations have been lifted allowing many residents to return to their home. 

Fortunately the wind gusts have calmed and temperatures are expected to drop to the mid 20's for the rest of this week.

While this all may be great news, unfortunately there are still homes and families devastated by this unfortunate fire. That is why we will have our first set of crews heading down to California this week. 

If your home or business was impacted by the Kincade fire please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-SERVPRO!

Nearly one year since the Camp Fire

10/11/2019 (Permalink)

It has been nearly one year since the Camp Fire started in Paradise California. We decided to take a trip back to see how the restoration of this beautiful town is going. 

While there was still a very sobering feeling driving through this town, there was also a light of life coming back to this town. As you drive through you see newly built homes, business, and parks. While many stores and restaurants have not begun to rebuild, the smaller business and community centers have. Families are coming together to clear the land where there homes once were to begin rebuilding. Trees are being planted, landscaping coming back to life, and churches with full parking lots. 

However, with all this life, there are still scars in the earth that will forever show the mark that this fire left on such a tight knit community in despair. 

The picture here shows that among so much pain, one can still feel love. Lock with names of those who lost their life, those who helped restore the community, and names of families who were displaced. 

Forever Paradise Strong!

From donations to restoration we are always here to help!

I wanted to let you know that our SERVPRO® of Hillsboro/Forest Grove and SERVPRO® of Yamhill & Tillamook Counties as part of the SERVPRO® Disaster Response Team (DRT), has volunteered to help the victims of the Carr wildfire Carr wildfire in California. This area has suffered severe damage with over 98,000 acres scorched and 5,000 structures threatened. Our DRT will be heading to Redding California this week. This area has been among the hardest hit with over 657 homes destroyed and over 149 square miles of land damaged by the fire. We will be helping to restore homes and businesses damaged by these wildfires. Sadly, there are many people who have lost everything in this disaster. Professionally as a property restoration company there was little we can do to help these people, but we took on the task of filling our trailers with items for donation!



Our company decided to help the relief effort by working with The Salvation Army to secure the nonperishable goods needed by the victims. These goods were distributed to the people who were currently living in shelters because they had no homes to return to. 

Wildfire season is rapidly approaching

5/8/2019 (Permalink)

Wildfires can happen almost anywhere.

Although the wildfire might not have caused fire damage to your property directly; there may be a smoke odor that can linger after the fire has been put out. There can even be soot particles and residue that may require cleaning. 

How can soot get inside your property?

 Soot can still enter your house through your HVAC unit and air ducts, even if your windows and doors are shut and vents are closed. These areas can hold large quantities of soot that can disperse all over your belongings and your home.

A wildfire will generally burn natural materials, but occasionally will burn man-made materials; which will leave soot particles that are difficult to remove.

At SERVPRO we use the best tools and trained professionals that are dedicated to leave your house smelling fresh and back to preloss condition so you can get your life back to normal. Like it never even happened.

Contact SERVPRO of Yamhill & Tillamook Counties and SERVPRO of Hillsboro / Forest Grove for emergency or non-emergency service when your house or business have fire damage at 503-648-8513. We are here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Fires are causing more devastation each year.

According to the National Fire Protection Association:   • Public fire departments responded to 1,319,500 fires in 2017. • 499,000 were structure fires- a 5% increase from 2016. 
• 72% of the structure fires were home fires. This is a 1% increase over 2016. 
Structure fire trends are going the wrong direction. Let’s do our part to reduce home fires. Your local fire department has very good information on how to prevent fires. Stop by and see them, they would much rather meet you in their house than in yours!

Hurricane Harvey damage

SERVPRO’s Disaster Recovery Team has been activated to help residents and business owners in storm damaged areas on the Texas coast, throughout the Houston area and in western Louisiana. SERVPRO’s Disaster Recovery Teams will be assisting the 121 local Franchises already located in the affected areas. SERVPRO has more than 1,000 crews ready to mobilize, with nearly 300 crews already on the ground ready assist home and business owners.

After the water begins to recede and authorities determine it is safe for residents to return to their property, there are several steps that can be taken to prevent additional damage from occurring. SERVPRO® suggests the following steps to help minimize additional damage to your property while waiting for disaster professionals to arrive.

  • If the water has entered the structure through the flooding of a creek, stream or river, or if it has filtered through insulation during its intrusion, it is considered to be black water and could be hazardous to your health. Avoid contact with contaminated items as much as possible.
  • Take the greatest caution while entering your home, and wear sturdy shoes and protective clothing when dealing with flooded areas.
  • Do not attempt to operate any electrical equipment while standing in wet or damp locations.
  • Throw away all foods—even canned goods—that have come into contact with flood waters.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and pillow cushions for drying. Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • If your home has a crawlspace, be aware excess moisture in this area can often foster mold growth.

Prepare Your Home For Winter Weather

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

Tips for keeping your home prepared for winter weather are:

  • Keep Cabinet doors open during cold spells. This allows warm air to circulate around pipes.
  • Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets, especially if the pipes for faucets run through unheated or uninsulated areas of your home. 
  • Consider shutting outdoor faucets. Find the shut-off valve in the basement or crawlspace and turn it to off
  • If you follow the previous step, then open the outdoor faucet to help ensure it drains completely and the inner valve is shut off.
  • Ensure gutters are clean and secure. Leaves and debris accumulate, causing a damming affect on gutters, which could lead to roof problems and water damage
  • Proper maintenance of your furnace can help reduce the risk of puff backs.

Prepare Your Business For Winter Weather

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

Tips for preparing your business in case of winter weather:

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice, and snow can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property or potentially a cause for personal injuries.
  • Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells, and entryways to address and correct potential slipper or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present. 

Frozen Pipes

A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe located, but typically the rupture is caused by back flow pressure between the water source and the blockage. A burst pipe can cause considerable damage to your property if not addresses quickly. 

Two years after

3/6/2018 (Permalink)

If disaster strikes, will you still be in business a year from now?  According to FEMA 40% of businesses never reopen after a major disaster, and only 29% will still be open two years later. They go on to say that if the technology is down for nine days the business will likely be bankrupt within a year. By having a comprehensive disaster plan, the odds of survival are much greater.  All of these factors need to be considered when formulating your disaster plan: 

  • Natural Hazards 
  • Human-Caused Hazards 
  • Technology-Related Hazards 
  • Health Hazards 
 Natural Hazards: Floods, rockslides and mud-slides, earthquakes and high winds just to mention a few.  Human-Caused Hazards: Floods, fires, damaged sprinkle systems, or violence. Technology-Related Hazards: I don’t know of a business that doesn’t rely on communication systems including telephones and the internet.  Health Hazards: It seems like the flu is the big one. Are there plans in place in the event of major outbreak? How much of the staff can be out sick at the same time before it harms the business?  What to do. 
  • Identify the Risks 
  • Develop a Plan 
  • Take Action 

Every business has risks, but they are not all the same. Plans need to be tailored to the specific location and type of business. SERVPRO has developed the Ready Plan. It is a great asset to add to the emergency plan. 

Taking action could be the only thing preventing a bankruptcy. However, after a plan has been put in place, it needs to work! PRACTICE it and work out the bugs. I participated in an evacuation drill for a care facility unrelated to Community Action Resource Enterprise, Inc... On paper it was flawless, but in reality it was deadly. Turned out the hospital beds were too big to maneuver though the evacuation route. In discussing the ideas for this month’s Tip of the Month with Erin Skaar, the Executive Director of Community Action Resource Enterprise, Inc., she suggested using high school students as stand-ins for residents for care center drills. I thought this was a great idea. Finally, plans need to be effective. I remember hiding under my school desk during the Air Raid drills. I’m still not sure that was a particularly effective plan. 

John's Tip of the Month

The crawlspace flooded... Is this going to be a problem?

It is never good and it needs to be thoroughly inspected to avoid future loses! When doing the inspection you are determining where the water crested in the crawl space. Use the photos as a guild to assess the extent of the damage that may have occurred. If the water is still in the crawl space it needs be extracted to prevent mold growth.

Water levels below the piers and pony walls can create an environment that contributes to microbial growth. Lots of flooding in the crawlspace can occur when a storm is active due to the increase of rain fall, An inspection by a professional to insure that the structure is mold free is recommended.

If the water has drained at the time of the inspection the crawl space should be treated with an antimicrobial to prevent mold growth. Mold can grow in the ducting and insulation.

Tips to help your home from flooding

10/30/2017 (Permalink)

A flood will occur when experiencing excessive rain, this causes rivers or streams to overflow. A flooding in a basement can be caused by water pooling around your home, this allows water to get into your home. A few tips can help prevent this. 

  • Properly maintain your property. The slope in your yard and flower bed placement can direct the flow of the water towards your home, causing the water to pool at the base of your home. In some cases, it may be a good idea to install a French drain.
  • Maintain the gutters and downspout. It is important to maintain your gutters and downspout as the debris will stop the flow of the water thus making the water run down the side of the building instead of flowing away from your home.
  • If your home has a sump pump, it is a great way to help prevent your basement from flooding. This doesn't mean you can just forget about your pump, you will still need to maintain the pump to make sure it is still in working conditions. if you know a storm is coming, make sure you test your pump that it is still working. Having a second sump pump can be handy if your pump does fail. Also having a backup generator can keep your pump running even after the power goes out.

John’s Tip of the Month

10/4/2017 (Permalink)

Water, it’s the essence of life. 


But when things go wrong it’s a whole different story. 
My friends in Boise had to wait until the end of summer to paddle board on the ponds in the city parks, due to the threat of E. coli from the spring flooding. When the health department tested to find the sources, they found human, dog, and goose feces to be the cause. 
Moving forward in time, the southeast is still recovering from record breaking hurricanes. I have read many reports of contaminated water. It’s a mix of bacteria, viruses, metals and other potentially toxic pollutants leached from the myriad of refineries and chemical plants in the area, along with an untold number of submerged septic tanks. 
So what does this have to do with us? 

We are just approaching our rainy season, and as we are very aware, there will be flooding somewhere in the area. We can’t change the weather but we can be prepared. Use the following list as a guide. 

  • Preventative maintenance check list 
  • Make sure the foundation grading slopes away from the building 
  • Check for leaking plumbing 
  • Make sure the plumbing is properly insulated 
  • Check for missing insulation 
  • Clean the area around the sump pump and check to make sure it is working order 
  • Check the foundation vents they should be closed for the winter and open in the summer 
  • Make sure the vapor barrier is intact 
  • Check of pest 
  • Make sure the roof components are in good condition 
  • Flashing round vents and chimneys 
  • Roof drains
  • Rain gutters and gutter downspouts
  • Clear landscape debris 
  • Clean out all ground surface drains 
  • Check all the door and window seals 

If a flood does happen you have the peace of mind knowing that the SERVPRO team will soon be on site, and they will make it “Like it never even happened”
