Running through the sprinklers

Sometimes, you just need to cool off.

We live in one of the hottest areas in the continental United States and with that luxury, we pay in sun burns and high electricity bills come summertime. One of the easier (and more immediate) ways of coping with the fiery tendencies is to take a dip in the ol’ swimming pool. However, not everyone has access to a pool so you can always go with the next best thing: running through the sprinklers.

For generations of summers past, the front yard sprinklers have been a refuge for the sun-afflicted children of the country. It’s as synonymous with summer as baseball, hot dogs, and lemonade. Throwing on a bathing suit and heading out front is a tried-and-true way to quickly cool off on a sizzling Saturday afternoon.

There is sometimes just one tiny little problem with this.

Sprinklers are low-profile and are, by design, not very visible unless you are looking for them. Have you ever accidentally kicked or snapped a sprinkler? I know I have. Do you think it’s possible and even likely that a kid who is caught up in running around and having fun may accidentally destroy one? You had better believe it. We have seen this exact incident occur and the damage it caused thereafter was no laughing matter. The home’s attached garage took on quite a bit of water, giving rise to the perfect conditions for mold to grow.

SERVPRO of Walnut wants you to have fun, stay cool, and beat the heat in any way you see fit. All we ask is that you mind the little sprinkler heads supplying you with an awesome afternoon in the summer sun.
