Water Damage: Operation Chill

Published by 911 Restoration Santa Cruz CA on July 29, 2014 in category: Current Event, Mold Inspection, Water Damage Restoration

Free Slurpee Day may have come and gone at 7-Eleven, but you can still score a free, small Slurpee by being a good citizen. Police Officers now have a positive reason to approach kids who show brave behavior or follow traffic laws on their bicycles. The idea is that, if a member of the SCPD spots a child going above and beyond the call of citizenship, the officer will give the child a coupon for a free Slurpee at 7-Eleven. Santa Cruz continues to prove its amazing care for its citizens with this initiative, aptly entitled “Operation Chill.” However, with great power, comes, well, brainfreezes. So be sure to keep your head warm while drinking your delicious reward for keeping it safe by wearing a helmet. Water damage in Santa Cruz can strike anywhere, and it is the worst when it’s in your head.

How do I get a Free Slurpee?

Police officers are giving free Slurpee coupons to children who ride their bikes following traffic rules. They must be wearing a helmet, stopping at stop signs, and riding in the correct direction. In addition, a youngin that “shows good citizenship” may be given the same reward. This comes at the Officer’s discretion, but has been seen for generous acts of sharing, helping others on the playground, and otherwise brightening people’s day. It is believed that this will improve positive interactions between the Police Department and the community. No longer will you only be stopped for a citation, you may be in for a frozen treat.

What’s the Best Way to Avoid a Brainfreeze?

Brainfreezes occur when there is a swift change in temperature in your sinuses, and in this case, the roof of your mouth. Therefore, if you keep the Slurpee under your tongue or in front of your teeth, you won’t have to worry about freezing your brain. It is the same for any water damage, there are always preventative techniques. A sewage back flow valve works the same as a straw. If you position the straw so that the ice bypasses the roof of your mouth, you have nothing to worry about. A dentist checkup could help too. They will check the enamel on your teeth as a water damage Santa Cruz professional would on your plumbing. If the protective layer is gone, the temperature change will be felt more in your gums and sinuses

What do I do if my Slurpee Spills?

Depending on the circumstances, a spilled Slurpee could spell bad news. There is a chance the kind people working the 7-Eleven may replace it for you, but there may be more at stake than a lost slushy. Water is bad enough for a vehicle, but add sugar to that and you have a whole new slew of problems. Leather and cloth seats both have depreciating effects when confronted with water damage. Leather is more prone to tear once it becomes water logged and cloth makes a perfect nest for mold. The sugar, of course, attracts ants. If this happens to you, be sure to call in water damage Santa Cruz experts. They will help you return your vehicle (or home if you made it to your house before the incident) to tip-top shape so you can enjoy your desserts once again.
