Es la Remoción de Agua Un Proyecto Para Profesionales?

Cuando vemos televisión nos sentimos listos para remodelar nuestro hogar sin ayuda professional.  De acuerdo a los programas más populares, un buen plan y un buen socio son la clave del éxito en mantener toda la casa, desde su construcción hasta la jardinería.  Sin duda hay muchos proyectos ideales para el propietario común, pero hay otros en los que un equipo professional es esencial. Remover agua acumulada, por ejemplo, es uno de esos proyectos que es mejor con ayuda especializada.  Las consecuencias de no remover el agua por completo son muy riesgosas y pueden ser dañinas para su familia y su salud.

En Santa Ana, los propietarios cuentan con SERVPRO para servicios de remoción de agua.  Nuestro equipo entrena bajo la tutela de expertos de la industria para estar a la vanguardia de los equipos y técnicas más innovadoras en nuestra rama.  Es precisamente esa preparación teórica, aunada con la experiencia de campo, la que nos hace destacarnos. Cuando nuestra cuadrilla llega a su casa usted puede estar seguro que los expertos lo van a guiar en cada paso del proceso.

Uno de los peligros de un trabajo mal hecho es que pueden quedar depósitos de agua ocultos entre las cavidades de las paredes o debajo de sus pisos.  Esta humedad invita a moho y bacteria, los cuales se multiplican en estas condiciones. Cuando nuestro equipo de SERVPRO inspecciona su hogar, utilizamos tecnología infrarroja e higrómetros para detectar acumulaciones de agua aunque no sean evidentes a simple vista.  Utilizando equipo especializado de extracción (bombas, varillas, deshumidificadores, aire caliente, etc.), metódicamente evaluamos cada rincón de su hogar hasta que los niveles de humedad regresen a la normalidad.

Aun cuando SERVPRO es su mejor recurso para la remoción de agua, los propietarios tienen un papel muy importante.  Lo más crucial que usted puede hacer es el mantenimiento preventivo. Si de repente observa un incremento en el consumo de agua, tome todos los pasos necesarios en identificar y controlar la filtración, seguido de una llamada a SERVPRO para asegurarse que la humedad no ha saturado sus paredes y fundaciones, comprometiendo la estructura de su casa.



SERVPRO of  Santa Ana South está listo para ayudarlo independientemente del volumen de agua que tenga que remover. Solo llámenos al (714) 558-7772 y permítanos dejar su hogar como que nada hubiera pasado.

We Act Fast To Limit More Damage To Your Santa Ana Home After A Water Damage Disaster

We employ the latest technology like this state-of-the-art water detection device to locate and measure the moisture content .

Quick Tips to Save Time on Water Restoration in Santa Ana

Everyone wants to save money when they can, and when disasters strike your Santa Ana home, this frugality can be more critical than ever. One of the best methods to save on the cost of the restoration that your home needs when facing substantial water loss incidents is to do what you can safely to reduce the time that professional technicians spend returning your property to preloss condition. While we can help our customers with every aspect of restoration and recovery that their house needs, we also want to help keep residents informed about what they can do to help when they want.

Aspects like water removal in Santa Ana homes can often require specialized equipment that our SERVPRO professionals arrive with when they get dispatched to a damaged address. Our team members have multiple levels of extraction tools from handheld options that are ideal for smaller volumes of standing water to full-size extractor trucks that roll out with our Green Fleet. No matter the severity of the situation, we have the right tool for the job. There are ways that you can help while our team is still in route, however.

  • Shut Off the Water – One of the biggest issues with substantial loss incidents is when the water flow does not cease until our team members first arrive. With significant breaches in plumbing or fixtures, hundreds, or even thousands of gallons of water can spread through the affected areas of your property within this time. Find the shutoff valve for the damaged appliance or the entire household and stop the flow of water.
  • Gather Contents – Our SERVPRO team arrives with competent content management professionals that can assess the damage and potential risks to your belongings from the loss incident. By removing some of the valuable items and keepsakes from the damage path, you can prevent situations where possessions become unsalvageable. 
  • Clear Out the Affected Areas - If you know where the bulk of the water damage restoration work has to occur, anticipate the need to bring multiple machines through your home to this affected point. Many of these recovery tools are large, which makes having a cleared path time saving for our technicians.

There are no ways to predict when water loss incidents can occur, but our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South can help you to restore these effects when they exist. Give us a call anytime at (714) 558-7772.

Professionals Give Tips to Dry Flood Damaged Homes in Santa Ana

7/23/2019 (Permalink)

Did the recent storms cause it to rain inside your home? Call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South to quickly dry your home!

A Small Opening for a Big Problem 

Wind and storms have made their way through California often in the last couple of years. We have all seen the devastation left in their wake and have fearfully watched entire homes being carried away by the elements. However, flood damage does not always imply the total loss of your home. Very often, a shattered window or broken roof becomes the opening for floodwater to enter your home, bringing debris and pollution with it. 

If flood damage reaches your Santa Ana home, you must be ready to act quickly. SERVPRO operates around the clock so we can respond to your emergency as soon as it happens; all you need to do is call our expert team. Our water restoration technicians (WRT) are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to apply the latest remediation techniques available to the industry. Our academic preparation, coupled with our field experience, lets us identify top priorities and act accordingly. 

Before we arrive at your home, you may want to isolate the water-filled area as much as possible. Plastic sheeting or other impermeable material can help create a divide, so damage does not extend to other parts of your home. Upon arrival, our SERVPRO crew inspects the damage and disposes of any non-salvageable materials; typically carpeting, upholstery, or other materials that soak up water. Moving these items out of your home helps curtail the proliferation of bacteria brought in by the flooding. 

To extract water from your home and restore humidity levels, our SERVPRO team can use one or several industry-grade tools. These may include- 

- Air circulators 

- Dehumidifiers

- Wand extractors

- Wet/dry vacuums 

- Hygrometers 

By applying industry best practices, we can eliminate water remains and proceed to disinfect your home while mitigating the risk of future damage. 

No flood is too big or too small for SERVPRO of Santa Ana South. Just give us a call at (714) 558-7772 and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Serious Restoration and Rebuild Needed for Your Santa Ana Property after Fire, Mold, Water, or Storm Damage? SERVPRO Is There!

Restoration Services Our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South Team Offers

While we can appreciate much of the sunny climates and favorable weather conditions year-round in Santa Ana and its surrounding regions, there are also ever-present risks that homeowners and business management must remain prepared to face. As trying as disasters and emergencies can be for your property, these are also areas of expertise for our experienced SERVPRO professionals. We can address the consequences of devastating water, fire, mold, and storm loss incidents to your home and help you to make these situations “Like it never even happened.”

Water Damage
Water damage in Santa Ana homes is among the most common of requests that our team responds to each day. From appliance failures to plumbing breaches, we have spent years working to become a trusted name in the area for a fast turnaround and quality production overcoming the effects and harm of these situations. We are a wise choice for recovery due to our extensive experience, training, and growing deep inventory of mitigation and restoration equipment to improve efficiency for our projects.

We know that many homeowners do not have coverage options for water damage for their properties, and that makes the approaches, equipment, and personnel we choose vital to our customers. Every decision affects the length of the project and its ultimate cost, so we work with property owners to establish budgetary limitations and offer services that are affordable and helpful during a crisis. Our ability to provide a fast and confident response 24 hours a day also helps our customers and has been instrumental in our multi-award-winning presence in Santa Ana.

Our success with water cleanup and recovery efforts for thousands of homes that depend on us throughout the Greater Santa Ana area begins with our training and equipment. We have advanced tools for fast extraction, drying, and cleaning of all affected surfaces and areas of a property, helping us to overcome all obstacles in restoring your property successfully. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we are always there quickly when you need us.  

Fire Damage
Along with our water restoration, fire damage in Santa Ana is a cornerstone of the work that we do. We have the most technicians and recovery specialists accredited in different facets of these niches of the industry than any other. This training and experience help us to be a trusted and respected name for fire emergencies that range from structural fires in your house to overcome the often widespread effects of wildfires that can destroy homes and businesses in our slice of California. Through training and courses offered with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), we have technicians accredited as:

•    Fire & Smoke Technicians (FSRT)
•    Odor Control Technicians (OCT)
•    Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning Technicians (UFT)
•    Carpet Cleaning Technicians (CCT)

Each of these skilled positions is vital in the fire recovery process, that begins with the initial call to our SERVPRO office. From the time that our professionals arrive at your home, we have boots on the ground quickly to perform a thorough inspection and fire damage assessment to begin formulating a successful plan that returns your Santa Ana home to preloss condition. Our restoration services are comprehensive, allowing us to be a one-stop shop for every phase of recovery your property requires. With a well-educated content management division, we can restore marred possessions from your property at our facility as well while cleaning continues in the house.

We have sophisticated equipment to address smoke, soot, odors, and airborne threats present after a fire loss gets extinguished. By running these machines throughout the mitigation and even reconstruction phases of the restoration, our technicians can help to limit the time and money put into recovering your Santa Ana home.

Storm Damage
As a full-service SERVPRO team, we can offer our customers a genuinely comprehensive recovery experience from the initial mitigation of their property through full rebuilds and reconstruction efforts. With torrential storm systems that can pass through all of Orange County off of the Pacific Ocean, having a fast disaster relief response can save our customers money and time on the restoration their storm-damaged Santa Ana home requires.

Our temporary construction solutions and full rebuilding services get overseen by our owner Tom Puorro, who has a General Contractors B License through the state. A confident approach in efforts like tree removal, portable power, board up, tarping, and other emergency services can reduce the severity of flooding conditions inside the Santa Ana property.

Storm damage often precedes widespread flood effects, and with the right response to the situation, our SERVPRO technicians can quickly extract standing water and begin drying and cleaning efforts right away. Storms, wildfires, and other natural disasters can affect your Santa Ana home, but our disaster relief division can help.

Mold Damage
We have always sought to stress the importance of remediation for mold damage in Santa Ana properties versus the fallacies of statements like mold removal. Removing mold entirely from your home or business is impossible, as spores exist naturally in nearly every environment. With moisture conditions that can facilitate colonization in as little as two days, you need to secure our IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT.)

As you might expect, our remediation efforts are not practical without first addressing moisture and dampness concerns in the Santa Ana property. We utilize air movers, desiccant and low grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers, and other specialized equipment to dry out damaged materials and areas of the house thoroughly. We can check the success of our efforts with moisture content readers, ensuring relative humidity is below 45 percent, before moving on to address the mold damage.

If you suspect mold damage in your home because of smells or heightened allergens and irritants, our SERVPRO team offers full and thorough inspections of the property to validate this growth and work quickly to address it completely. With how quickly these scenarios can get out of control in Santa Ana homes, it is wise to get help right away.

We strive to provide our customers with a one-stop approach for restoration services. You can count on us whenever disaster strikes, and we can make the effects “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South team a call today at (714) 558-7772.

We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Santa Ana After A Fire Damage Disaster

Our experts are ready to respond 24/7 and are highly trained. We have the experience and equipment to restore your fire damaged right away.

Fire Damage Restoration: Soot, Smoke and Odor Removal for your Santa Ana home 

Soot and smoke residues are deposited throughout the home during a fire. These odorous particles are made up of carbon alongside any number of synthetic chemicals dependent on the type of material that combusting. Often, firefighting procedures involve the use of water which can set soot into fabrics, furnishings, or mattresses. A professional service is capable of removing this soiling using their expertise to not only restore but also to prevent permanent harm.

Residents that experience fire damage in Santa Ana can rely on us to provide honest, highly trained technicians for cleanup services. SERVPRO methodology involves conducting a thorough pre-test of materials and contents that allows us to tailor our approach to the exact conditions of each property. A pre-test can reveal what type of residues we are dealing with- wet, dry, or protein-based- which in turn allows us to provide an efficient cleaning operation.

A wet smoke usually occurs in situations where a synthetic material burns slowly for a significant period. The characteristics include heavy soiling that is odorous and can wear away finishes on surfaces, paintwork, or wallpaper. SERVPRO uses patented chemical cleaning agents, some of which are corrosive, to ensure that wet smoke is removed and spreading avoided. After eradicating smoke residues, we can begin the processes of refinishing and odor control.

The rule of deodorization is to recreate the method of distribution that causes the odor in the first place. In the case of fire damage, odor particles are spread through the smoke, which travels upwards into clean air pockets before dropping to the floor once temperatures cool. SERVPRO mimic this process using vaporized deodorant solvent. Our thermal fogging equipment fumigates the property, spreading deodorant in much the same way as the odor was deposited. Unlike household air freshener, vapor deodorizers use chemical pairing agents that bond with odors and neutralize them rather than merely masking the smell.

For a tailor-made service that takes into account the type of smoke and odor present in the property, contact SERVPRO of Santa Ana South at (714) 558-7772.

How Our Specialists Handle Fire And Odor Damage In Your Santa Ana Home

6/24/2019 (Permalink)

Call us today at (714) 558-7772 to remediate the destruction.

Steps For Dealing With Fire And Odor Damage In Santa Ana Homes

In the aftereffects of a fire, it is often necessary to replace the destroyed structures and contents and clean salvageable items. Smoke, soot, odor, and the chemicals and water that firefighters use could damage the items that remain. Immediate attention helps minimize destruction.

Even if the fire happened in a single room such as the living room, soot, smoke, and odors could have traveled all over the home, affecting drapes, upholstery, carpets, clothing and other possessions. To repair and recover your Santa Ana home after fire and odor damage, you can enlist the services of SERVPRO franchise professionals. We can clean the smoke and soot from floors, ceilings, walls, furniture, and clothing, and remove the smoky odor.

The smoke smell can linger for days or weeks, and the more time it has to seep into your carpets, furniture, draperies, and walls, the harder it is to remove. One thing we do to deodorize a home is removing items that have smoke odors like upholstered furniture, mattresses, box springs, and stuffed animals. We also remove any debris and charred items if you and your insurance adjuster approve the removal of such materials.

Our SERVPRO odor control technician (OCT) can use vacuum cleaners or dry chemical sponges to clean any surface containing soot residues. After cleaning, we perform air scrubbing or ventilation to eliminate odor molecules from indoor air. We usually combine multiple deodorization techniques to ensure successful neutralization of odors. Sometimes, we apply odor counteractant pellets or beads to the floor to control vapor odors. In other situations, our technicians use ultra-low volume foggers to disperse deodorants into the home.

After deodorizing a home, we assess if any odors remain and if so, we perform additional odor removal procedures. Cleaning household textiles thoroughly is also critical for eliminating smoke odors. We offer cloth and textile cleaning as part of our restoration process. We can take items such as clothing, draperies, and blankets with lingering smoke odors to our facility and clean them using our Esporta wash system.

If your house has fire and odor damage, SERVPRO of Santa Ana South can help you handle it. Our experts have the equipment and expertise to make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at (714) 558-7772 to remediate the destruction.
