Water Damage Restoration in Santa Ana is Not a Do-it-Yourself Project!

Why SERVPRO Water Damage Restoration in Santa Ana is Not a Do-it-Yourself Project! SERVPRO is here to help restore your home from water damage "Like it never even happened."

Say No to DIY and Say Yes to SERVPRO Water Restoration Services! 

Different factors can cause water damage. Most commonly, there is a plumbing issue that affects your home, or a broken appliance. In some areas of the country, the damage is caused by weather events that exacerbate roof issues or challenge the safety of windows and doors. Regardless of the underlying cause, when a home fills with water homeowners face an essential decision in facilitating repairs and restoration. Many homeowners have learned that a do-it-yourself approach is not always the most effective.

In Santa Ana, we have SERVPRO to help us address any water damage in our homes. When time is of the essence, our team is available around the clock to commence the restoration process. One of the dangers of not enlisting professional help after a water event is increasing the extent of secondary damage. For example, when wood furniture or floors are not restored promptly, you may see warping and buckling occurring as time goes on, along with increasing the chances of mold to flourish in the wet environment.

The tools available to our SERVPRO crew far exceed what the average homeowner may find at their local home improvement store. Our infrared moisture meters allow us to monitor humidity and employ air movers and dehumidifiers to return levels to normal. When homeowners take the do-it-yourself approach, they may focus only on drying the area, which may not be sufficient and leave home vulnerable to further damage such as mold and weakening of the structure. Unattended issues can become more cumbersome and costly in the long run.

When you call SERVPRO, you can also reap the benefits of our expertise in removing odors. Without professional help, homeowners have to rely on store-bought air purifiers which may lack the strength and specificity to neutralize odor molecules. When you reach out to our team, you can rest assured that we have a variety of methods ranging from spray solutions to thermal foggers and we take a tailored approach to their usage.

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South is your best resource when restoring your home. Reach out to us at (714) 558-7772 and let us leave your water damaged home “Like it never even happened.”

Is Water Damage Being Store At Your Santa Ana Warehouse?

5/13/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Is Water Damage Being Store At Your Santa Ana Warehouse? Don't let water damage ruin your inventory. Call SERVPRO today!

Tips for Handling Commercial Water Damage in Your Santa Ana Warehouse

Water damage caused by burst pipes is bad enough in any commercial property, but in a warehouse, the stakes are higher. The water can ruin stored merchandise, materials, and tools. The action of the water can also ruin the wood used to build internal walls, storage areas, and shelves.  

When there’s commercial water damage in your Santa Ana warehouse, you need to take fast action to remove the water and dry the affected areas. Water can make existing damage in your warehouse like cracks worse. Small cracks in the floors, ceilings, walls can allow moisture to enter. As the temperature changes, the moisture can ruin your entire facility as it contracts and expands.  

High humidity can lead to mold growth, which can cause health effects. To deal with water loss in your warehouse, you need to stop the leak first and then pump out the water and drain the affected areas. The professionals at SERVPRO can assist you in handling the water loss and restoring your warehouse to its preloss condition. Our technicians can assess the damage and then take steps to extract the standing water.  

We can use powerful high pressure pumps to remove the water quickly. We have portable pumps and shop-vacs that enable our technicians to reach all the affected areas. If there’s a lot of standing water, we can use truck mounted pumps to extract it, since they are more potent than portable pumps.  

After pumping out the water, our SERVPRO technicians begin the drying process. We can place commercial grade air movers at various locations to draw out water from building materials. These machines provide high-speed circulation of air masses, activating the process of moisture separation from all affected surfaces. When air moves across these surfaces, it increases evaporation. We then use dehumidifiers to pull out the moisture from the air, which helps reduce the likelihood of negative consequences. We monitor each stage of the drying process carefully and perform measurements to control the humidity levels in the warehouse.  

When dealing with water damage in a warehouse, SERVPRO of Santa Ana South is the right company to call. Contact us today at (714) 558-7772. Our remediation experts have the capabilities and training to restore your warehouse safely and effectively. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

What Should You Do When Water Damages Your Santa Ana Residence

5/3/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage What Should You Do When Water Damages Your Santa Ana Residence SERVPRO of Santa Ana South is always ready to go to make it "Like it never even happened."

Water Damage Restoration for Your Santa Ana Home 

You’ve been out all day, only to come home to discover that a child left the water running in the upstairs bathtub, with it plugged. You now have water coming down through your living room ceiling, onto the carpet and furniture. With the extreme amount of damage that needs to be cleaned up in your Santa Ana home, you need to act quickly.  

Water damage such as this in your Santa Ana residence is overwhelming, but the professionals at SERVPRO can still fix it up to look as if nothing ever happened. We have the training and tools needed to clean up the water and the damage. Plus we do so in a timely fashion so you and your family can get back to your everyday life.  

When your upstairs bathroom floods, the first thing to do is shut the water off. If you concentrate on sopping the water up, the problem continues to grow. You can even close the fixture’s water supply valves or close the main water valve for your home.  

In some restoration cases, SERVPRO staff can perform drying of your carpeting and padding in-place. The basic idea is to extract water from the carpet more efficiently and use more air movers and dehumidifiers. We do not need to roll back the carpet or remove the pad.  

We do this when possible because it does have several advantages. This method first causes you and your family less disruption, and furniture also does not need to be moved out of the room.  Your carpeting incurs less damage when seams do not need cutting, and the carpet does not need reinstalling.  There is also less chance of delamination.  

The surest way to prevent this type of damage in the future is to take preventive steps. The overflow drain in your bathtub often is forgotten, but these drains can clog up with debris over time. Pouring bleach down the drain from time to time can break up the clogs inside of them so that they can work properly.  

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South can restore your home in Santa Ana or the surrounding areas after a significant water loss like this, but do not hesitate to call us. The water continues to do more damage the longer it sits, so contact us right away at (714) 558-7772, so we can help you out.

Fire Damage Let SERVPRO Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Santa Ana After the fire is put out the worry sets in we are here 24/7 to offer our expertise, equipment and experience. Don't hesitate and call us right away.

Fire Damage Safety and Cleanup for Your Santa Ana Home

No one in Santa Ana wants to believe that a fire can happen to them, but they can and do unfortunately happen to many families each year. The difference between a fire becoming a tragedy for your family or something you made it through safely depends on how you prepare and plan for an event like this. There is a low percentage of families that have practiced a fire escape plan but knowing some safety steps beforehand can keep your family safe.

Fire damage in your Santa Ana home of any size is a scary event which upheaves your life. Once the flames are out, you also have to deal with whatever fire damage was left behind. A professional remediation company can assist you in doing this. When you reach out to us at SERVPRO for help, you can rest assured you are getting an experienced company who works quickly and efficiently to get your home back to how it was before the fire damage.

The first thing you should do to prepare for a possible fire is to create a plan of escape and go over it with every single family member. Walk through your home, drawing up a plan and identifying two ways out of each room. If you have younger children, calmly explain to them the effects of a house fire and what to look for in case of an emergency. They can help you draw up an escape plan, and make sure all children in the home know how to call 911 and use it correctly.

Even small fires create smoke damage which SERVPRO technicians make sure to thoroughly clean. When it comes to windows, it not only means we need to clean the glass but also the framework and any hardware which is part of the construction of the window. To remove residues from glass without streaking, we use a low-alkaline glass cleaner. A spray bottle is used to apply the product, and then a squeegee is used to remove the smoke residues.

You also should identify all exits and which ones should be taken in case of a fire. All family members need to know where to exit, plus an alternative exit. Think about any obstacles that could be in the way such as furniture or bars on the windows.

A meeting place should also be planned. It is somewhere you and your family members can meet up right after you escape the home. Have a meeting place and an alternative one as well in case the main one is not safe. Some good places include the front sidewalk or a neighbor’s house.

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South understands a fire in your home in Santa Ana, or the surrounding areas is an unsettling event. We want to help you return to your normal life as soon as possible after a fire, so do not hesitate to call us at (714) 558-7772 as soon as the flames are extinguished.

Commercial At Last, the Secret to Successful Commercial Fire Damage Remediation in Santa Ana is Revealed When fire damage occurs in your electronics repair shop, the situation needs fast mitigation services. Contact our IICRC certified technicians.

Steps that Lead to Better Response After Commercial Fire Damage in Santa Ana

If you sell or repair electronics, a fire at your businesses premises can lead to substantial losses and major inconveniences. The initial steps taken immediately after putting out the fire can limit the inconveniences and help your business recover faster. Our fire damage restoration services help businesses mount a proper response.

Evaluating the level of loss immediately after commercial fire damage in Santa Ana helps point the restoration process in the right direction. During inspection our SERVPRO technicians determine the level of damage on building materials and fixtures such as cabinets and counters among others. If the damage is restricted to specific areas, we help you take measures such as boarding up or creating exclusion zones allowing you to serve customers as we restore the damages.

In many fire incidents, significant amounts of water are pumped into the building to suppress the flames. If any standing water or excess moisture remains in the structure, it can cause many problems including high levels of relative humidity, bad odor or even mold. We have IICRC certified WRT, Water Restoration Technicians, who extract water fast and take other measures to eliminate excess moisture “Like it never even happened.”

Most fire incidents ruin electrical outlets and power cables. Such damage can affect the restoration process because some of the steps involved require power, heat or light. Even when there is no visible damage in the electrical systems, switching them on before they are checked can lead to short-circuits. We have portable generators in our production trucks allowing us to operate all equipment immediately after arrival at the loss site. Our technicians also have electric circuit testers for preliminary checks of electric circuits in case you need to turn power on.

In case of fire damage incidents, SERVPRO of Santa Ana South can help you respond the right way. You can reach us at (714) 558-7772 any day. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
