California is known as the Golden State and it’s because everything seems to be that way: The sun is usually shining, beachgoers have golden tans, and happiness is abundant. But even the Golden State is not immune to water damage.
The entire West Coast of the state is surrounded by the North Pacific Ocean. Real estate property along the beachfront is a hot, expensive commodity. And while it can be great to step into your backyard and have the ocean for a view, the same cannot be said when the weather turns sour. Homes along the water are at risk of damage from the ocean levels rising and high winds and rain that comes with heavy storms. Homes can be damaged by the wind or flying debris, creating an opening for water to make its way inside.
While San Jose is further east of the ocean, its properties are not immune to water damage. Its homes can still experience a sewage backup, flooded basements, standing water from heavy rains, and more. That’s why ServicePros has made a home in San Jose, so we can be of assistance whenever we are needed.
Any area of your home is prone to experiencing water damage, especially because sewer and supply lines run through nearly every area of the home. Common places you’ll find water damage include:
• Laundry room
You can try to prevent damage from occurring through general maintenance and replacing broken or outdated piping or appliances, but you cannot guarantee that your home will not experience water damage.
Our teams of contractors can arrive at your home within 24 hours, and we can usually get them to your home on the same day. Don’t worry about where to begin cleaning up because they have it all handled! You can relax, knowing that your home is in good hands.

Water Damage and Mold
When your home has damage that allows water inside, it isn’t just letting in the water: It’s letting in everything else with it, including viruses and bacteria. One of these uninvited guests is mold, which grows within 24 to 48 hours in warm, humid conditions. Basements with standing water, for example, can become extremely humid when there is nowhere for the water to drain. In order to prevent or mitigate mold growth, this water must be removed as soon as possible.
The Environmental Protection Agency warns that mold can impact a home’s air quality, which can be a problem for individuals with mold allergies or mold sensitivities. The most common symptoms of mold exposure include:
• Morning stiffness
• Difficulty concentrating
• Shortness of breath
• Congestion and/or cough
If you begin to notice these and other associated symptoms after cleaning up water damage, it is likely you have mold growth that went unnoticed.
