fire and charred debris in a burned house interior SERVPRO Can Help with We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, to mitigate fire damage and odor removal in Santa Ana Homes

Why Call SERVPRO for Professional Fire Damage Mitigation in Santa Ana?

Nobody thinks that a fire can ravage their Santa Ana property until it happens. When it comes to disasters like fire and subsequent water damage from dousing the flames, working with highly-trained professionals is the only way to ensure you have the best possible outcome.

For help with fire damage in Santa Ana, your local SERVPRO team is the number one answer. You can contact us at any time, 24/7, and we can schedule a team to come to your property as soon as possible to perform a full assessment.

Time is of the Essence
Fires happen in a flash, which means they need a prompt response from first responders to the scene. Once the fire is fully extinguished and fire personnel has given approval, SERVPRO technicians assess the situation so that the insurance process and mitigation can get underway. We take pictures and hold them for you and your insurance adjuster to establish a firm understanding of the task ahead.

Professional Cleanup
Water saturation present after extinguishing the blaze must be addressed with specialized techniques. We remove standing water using pumps and vacuums, and then any materials damaged beyond the point of saving. SERVPRO technicians use thermal imaging equipment to locate any lingering moisture to ensure that before any rebuilding of fire-damaged materials occurs, there is a small chance of microbial growth.

Cleaning after fire damage means taking care of visible remnants of the fire as well as addressing lingering odors by purifying the air. Homeowners are quite often shocked at the amount of residue and odors that even the smallest fire can leave behind. These offending smells cling to drapes, upholstery, and other materials that allow the odors to hang on well after the cleanup process is underway. SERVPRO technicians utilize deodorizing pellets or employ the use of thermal foggers as well as hydroxyl generators, as needed, to work on even the toughest odors.

Do you still need help with professional fire damage mitigation? SERVPRO of Santa Ana South is available to start on your restoration project so that we can make it look “Like it never even happened.” All you have to do is give us a call at (714) 558-7772, and we can be there to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Ultimate Solution to Water Damage Remediation in Santa Ana 

12/29/2019 (Permalink)

insulated attic Condensation in your attic and the resulting water damage and possibility of mold is always lurking.  Contact SERVPRO right away.

Removing Water from Attic Flooring in Santa Ana Homes

Cooling Santa Ana homes throughout the better part of the year is a focal point of comfortable living in Orange County. Considering that the residential areas in and around the city are home to several million residents, effective space management for constructed homes is vital. As such, air conditioning units have often gotten installed in unfinished basements instead of attached to the exterior of the property on the ground floor.  

With a condensation-generating appliance upstairs in the attic, the threat of water damage to Santa Ana homes is more probable than many property owners might believe. There are multiple reasons that a larger air conditioning unit could cause water damage to your house. Failure to recognize this problem quickly can allow leaking water to spread throughout the attic area and even into the floors below.

The most common reason that air conditioning units in the attic can begin to leak to the point of causing water damage in the house is a clogged condensate drain line. If this drain gets blocked with dirt, debris, or anything else, the water has nowhere to go but the floor surrounding the unit. While this is not an immediately devastating concern, steady and consistent use of the air conditioning unit continues to produce more water that leaks out onto the flooring.

Our SERVPRO team can arrive with sophisticated detection tools to help identify the moisture threats that exist and work on drying them out. While fixing the issues with the air conditioners are the top priority, we must utilize specialized tools like drying mats and the positive pressure cavity drying systems to pull water from the planks of any wood flooring before decay and degradation begin.

As challenging as it might initially be to identify a leak in your air conditioning unit that threatens structural elements in your home, our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South team can help. Our infrared imagery and probing tools can indicate the severity of the damage and work to both dry up the damage and repair wood supports, rafters, and plank affected by persistent moisture exposure. Give us a call today at (714) 558-7772.

Our Experts Arrive Right Away To Restore Your Santa Ana Home After A Fire

12/26/2019 (Permalink)

A kitchen covered in soot and smoke after a fire Our experts are ready to respond 24/7 and are highly trained. We have the experience and equipment to restore your home to pre-damage condition.

Dealing with Fire Cleanup in Santa Ana

Even after a relatively minor appliance fire, the cleanup can be extensive. Removing damaged contents and cleaning soot-stained upholstery becomes a considerable task. On top of that, smoke and soot residue has a way of permeating throughout the home into every nook and cranny, making it virtually impossible to eradicate on your own.

If you find yourself experiencing lingering smoke odors during fire cleanup in your Santa Ana home, contact the SERVPRO fire restoration team for assistance. They investigate and remove the source of the smell while creating a long-term plan to eradicate it for good.

The first phase of controlling smoke odor is to contain it. SERVPRO technicians spray a chemical deodorizer such as the specially formulated Smoke Deodorizer #302, using a pump-up sprayer to distribute it onto the odor-causing material creating a barrier to slow down or stop the odor molecules from vaporizing into the air.

The second phase is vapor odor control to counteract the remaining uncontained vapors using either deodorant vapors products that come in either granular form or bead form. These odors counteract products attack the odor molecules as they escape into the air and are especially useful after fire damage.

The third phase consists of thermal fogging. Solvent-based deodorants disperse through the air using fogging equipment. These solvents attack smoke odors by replicating smoke to penetrate challenging-to-reach-places. Thermal fogging requires safety precautions and usually requires residents to leave home until fogging and ventilation are complete.

Temperature and humidity levels within your home directly impact the deodorization of unwanted smells. Odor molecules can vaporize quickly, and high humidity levels make the odors dissolve, traveling easily to the nose. Days, weeks, or even months when the weather becomes warmer, it is possible for smoke odors to resurface, requiring further deodorization. Odors in the humid California summers tend to be stronger than the odors during the dryer winter months.

To effectively deodorize a structure, the SERVPRO team creates a customized plan for your specific situation using the three phases of smoke odor control while recognizing the possibility of odor resurfacing later due to temperature and humidity changes.

SERVPRO Explica a Los Propietarios de Santa Ana Cuestiones Relacionadas de Tormentas, Mitigación y Restauración

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

 60/5000 Las manchas de agua interiores en el techo del molde deterioran las baldosas de daños. Cuando se asocia con nuestro equipo SERVPRO, trabajamos eficientemente para localizar el problema del agua y restaurar el daño rápidamente.

No Invite a los Microbios a Su Hogar

Es muy difícil anticipar todos los desastres naturales que pudieran afectar a Santa Ana en cualquier momento. Pareciera que nuestra habilidad de enfrentar emergencias está permanentemente a prueba. Como propietarios, nuestra mejor táctica defensiva es imaginarnos el proceso de recuperación y planificar de acuerdo a ese escenario.  Este plan post-desastre debe incluir professionales en sus gremios, incluyendo contratistas, electricistas y plomeros. Sin embargo, también tiene que incluir un grupo de personas que pueda restaurar el daño causado por el agua en su hogar.

SERVPRO está aquí para ayudarlo en los daños causados por agua y tormentas En Santa Ana. Nuestro equipo entrena académicamente y de manera vivencial para manejar los trabajos más complicados que resultan de una tormenta o inundación. De la misma manera que usted organiza sus suministros para la emergencia, usted debe tener a mano nuestro número de acceso, el cual puede llamar 24 horas al día, 7 días a la semana.  Cuando estos infortunios ocurren, nuestros técnicos en restauración visten sus trajes de protección personal y llegan al lugar del desastre tan pronto el riesgo esté controlado.

Una de las consideraciones más problemáticas después de una tormenta es la presencia de microbios. Siempre que haya agua estancada dentro o alrededor de su casa, el moho y las bacterias encuentran un hogar propicio para multiplicar y propagarse.  Siempre que haya humedad excesiva y una temperatura relativamente cálida, su hogar se convierte en un ecosistema ideal para la existencia de bacterias. En SERVPRO, nuestra experiencia nos ha enseñado que no es suficiente rociar soluciones limpiadoras sin prestar atención a la humedad del ambiente.  Esta información se traduce a un plan de acción que ataca a los microbios a la vez que utiliza herramientas industriales para eliminar los factores que hacen a su hogar el ambiente propicio para la multiplicación de microorganismos, incluyendo desechar materiales contaminados.

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South debe ser parte de su plan de emergencia. Nuestra experiencia para manejar los desastres naturales nos preparan para guiarlo en el proceso de restauración de la manera más cohesiva posible.  Llámenos al (714) 558-7772 e invítenos a trabajar con usted hasta que la tormenta sea cosa del pasado.

SERVPRO Explains to Santa Ana Property Owners Storm-Related Issues, Mitigation, and Restoration

12/9/2019 (Permalink)

Don’t Invite Microbes Into Your Santa Ana Home

It is hard to anticipate what natural disasters may affect Santa Ana in any given month. Our ability to cope with emergencies seems to be put to the test often these days. As homeowners, our best defense is to anticipate what the recovery process could look like and plan accordingly. This post-emergency plan has to include a series of reputable professionals such as general contractors, electricians, and plumbers, but it also has to include a team of people able to restore the water damage in your home.

For storm and water removal services in Santa Ana, you can count on SERVPRO. Our crew trains in the classroom and on the field to handle the toughest jobs following a torrential downpour or flash flood. As you prepare your emergency kit, make sure to include our 24/7 hotline in your roster of service providers and call us as soon as you can. Even better, contact us to schedule a visit to your home to develop an ERP--the Emergency READY Profile Plan. This mobile app can help prevent and mitigate water and fire emergency incidents. When these unfortunate instances happen, our water restoration technicians (WRT) don their personal protective equipment and arrive at the job site as soon as it is safe to do so.

One of the most troublesome issues after a storm prompts water to enter your home is that of microbes. Whenever there is standing water inside or surrounding your home, mold, and bacteria find a suitable environment in which to multiply and flourish. As long as there are excess moisture and a relatively warm temperature, your home becomes an ideal ecosystem for mold to increase. Our expertise at SERVPRO prompts us to control not only the growth of bacteria but also, most importantly, the source of moisture that is feeding it. This knowledge translates into a restoration job that goes beyond spraying a solution to prevent microbial growth. Instead, we apply our industry-grade equipment to achieve optimal moisture levels and remove any contaminated items from your home.

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South should be part of your emergency recovery plan. Our expertise and preparedness to deal with disaster scenarios prepare us to guide you through the restoration process as seamlessly as possible. Call us at (714) 558-7772 and let us work with you until we leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”
