Storm Damage SERVPRO, Santa Ana Homeowners, and Flood Damage Mitigation SERVPRO Responds for Flood Damage Mitigation in Santa Ana

Handling Flood Damage in Santa Ana Properly

If your property is affected by floods, you are likely to face a cocktail of problems, some of which you might not even realize. The water flowing from outside the structure carries harmful chemicals, pesticides, and biohazards like raw sewage or dead animals. The water also soaks into materials such as drywall or even the house contents. Restoring the property to preloss state takes effort and time. Hiring a professional restoration team helps lift the burden.

Dealing with flood damage in Santa Ana involves different steps such as cleaning up affected areas, tearing down parts of the structure and removing water or excess moisture from the structure. The extent of each step depends on the severity of the flooding incident. When our SERVPRO crew arrives at your premises, we first inspect the property to establish which steps are necessary. We also implement safety measures such as checking whether power mains are off and spraying the affected areas with EPA-registered disinfectants to control contaminants.
 
Most porous materials affected by floodwaters require removal because there is no guaranteed way of decontaminating them. Items like carpets and pad fall in this category, as well as materials like drywall and insulation. When a skilled person handles the removal of these materials, it reduces the chance of damaging unaffected sections of the property. Our SERVPRO technicians perform a flood cut of two feet to four feet which is slightly above the waterline to remove affected drywall and insulation. The flood cut also allows easier access to the wall cavity for removal of moisture and for disinfecting.
 
Flooding creates a favorable environment for the development of microbes. The moisture in materials, as well as the increased humidity in the house, can lead to mold growth within twenty-four to forty-eight hours. Our SERVPRO technicians aim to bring down humidity levels in the house below 60% to inhibit the growth of mold. We do this by extracting pooling water and using air movers and dehumidifiers to dry wet areas.
 
When your home is affected by floods, call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South to assist. You can reach us at (714) 558-7772 any time. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Solves Problems in the Flooring of Santa Ana Homes with Flood Damage

Flood damage to your home in Santa Ana can leave many different objects and materials permanently scarred by the sheets of rushing water, but one of the most damaged parts of the house is likely to be your flooring. Wood, tile, and especially carpets can all sustain heavy damage during a flood, and the only hope of saving them is to get a professional mitigation company like SERVPRO on the site quickly to stop more damage from happening. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Here is a quick overview of how storm flooding may impact the different flooring materials in your home, both short and long-term.

Tile
Tile floors are usually among the most resilient materials in a Santa Ana home after flood damage, but still require some cleaning and drying after most disasters. Depending on how severe the damage is and what the tiles are made of, they may need to be cleaned, polished, or even partially replaced and re-laid. We also find it essential to dry tile floors quickly to stop the spread of mold in grout lines.

Carpets
Carpeting often sustains some of the worst damage in a flood-damaged home. While we try to preserve as much as possible, only if the wet areas are free of contaminated waters, we are often forced to replace the carpeting in large parts or all of our clients' homes. In a crawlspace home, the underlaying subfloor and structure must be dried to specific levels to ensure that no secondary damage occurs. It is especially important that we decide on a course of action quickly for carpets, as they can easily become the focal point for a mold infestation that can spread across the entire building.

Wood
Different types of wood react in different ways to water. Some might bend along their lengths, others along their widths, and some may merely shrink or expand. We incorporate specialized treatments into our drying process to make sure that any affected wood floors in your home can be restored to their original sizes and shapes. We can use drying mats to help draw out moisture from the joints and beams. Towards the end of our restoration process, we can also refinish the materials, if necessary.

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South is ready on a 24/7 basis to respond to your calls for help with flood, fire, and other types of home damage. Contact us at (714) 558-7772.

How SERVPRO Removes Smoke Odors From Your Fire Damaged Santa Ana Home

12/5/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO How SERVPRO Removes Smoke Odors From Your Fire Damaged Santa Ana Home Smoke affects every room in your home after a fire. Even the rooms that were not fire damaged.

Fire Damage Experts in Santa Ana Talk About Deodorization Equipment

If a fire ever breaks out inside your Santa Ana home, the heat and the smoke coming from the fire can destroy your contents and building materials. Smoke is made up of partially combusted particles and can add problems to any existing fire damage. Once these partially combusted substances come into contact with cooler surfaces, particles in the form of soot residue can adhere to the material. Smoke can also penetrate deeply into porous materials such as fabrics and cause unpleasant aromas to fill the building. When dealing with any fire damage scenario, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO so that we can find all of the existing problems.  

Some problems that exist after something burns inside your structure may not be readily noticeable. As a part of any fire damage project in Santa Ana, our SERVPRO estimators check every part of the building for smoke-related problems. We use the industry's most advanced technology to determine what we can save through cleaning and re-finishing and what must be removed and replaced. We have access to industrially advanced equipment that helps us remove soils and soot residues as well as eliminate burnt odors. Should foul odors remain after removing burnt items and completing the cleaning process, we make use of deodorization equipment to neutralize or mask the aromas.  

Our SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and have the experience to find all of the places smoke could have affected. Our highly trained team knows how fire and smoke behave, so they know exactly where to look for potential problems. When smoke damage is severe, our crew knows that they have tools like ultra-low volume foggers and ozone machine that they can use.  

ULV foggers are designed to send chemicals to the atmosphere in the same manner smoke traveled. The chemicals get broken down into small particles and can penetrate as deeply into porous materials as the smoke did. Ozone machines send out O3 molecules into the air that react with malodor particles and neutralize them. If you ever notice smoke damage at your house, call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South at (714) 558-7772 24/7.

Never Worry About Mold Again With Help From Our Professional Remediation Team In Santa Ana

Mold Remediation Never Worry About Mold Again With Help From Our Professional Remediation Team In Santa Ana Working with a professional can help deal a decisive blow to mold proliferation in your property.

How To Deal An Effective Blow To Mold Damage In Santa Ana

Mold problems go beyond the simple signs like a musty smell and stained surfaces. If the colonies are left to reproduce unabated, they can break down the structural integrity of the affected material. Breakdown happens because mold consumes materials such as wood or fabric as food to fuel its growth. Knowing this, you should take immediate remedial action when you notice early signs in your Santa Ana home.

Most cases of severe mold damage in Santa Ana can be attributed to laxity on the part of the property owner. Alternatively, lack of proper knowledge can lead to severe proliferation even after taking immediate action. For instance, using bleach to counter growth only fuels it because of the extra moisture introduced in the affected area. Calling an AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation Technician helps you avoid such mistakes because they follow best practices when choosing a method to deal with mold.

By the time you discover the early signs of mold infestation, there is a likelihood that the colonies have spread in hidden areas such as wall cavities, or hard to reach areas such as underneath sinks and other plumbing installations. A thorough inspection of the affected property is necessary to establish the true extent of the problem. Our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches including using thermal to inspect all problem areas in your property. Even where there is no mold, the cameras can help establish moisture issues that could lead to future growth.

The effect of mold on different materials varies. In porous materials, the hyphae grow deep into the material, so it is hard to eliminate them through cleaning. In such circumstances, the best approach is to discard the affected items. Our SERVPRO crew use different methods to clean nonporous materials including HEPA vacuuming them to get rid of loose fragments of the mold colonies and damp wiping with a professional antimicrobial solution to kill spores.

Working with a professional can help deal a decisive blow to mold proliferation in your property. Call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South to help. You can reach us at (714) 558-7772 every day. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!

How Mold Can Damage and Affect Your Santa Ana Home

Emergencies and disasters do not threaten every Santa Ana house, but when it is your home that gets affected, you want some assurance that the problems and effects can get restored quickly. When it comes to restoring and remediating mold growth in your residence you want that stress-free feeling that all will be okay. Because mold growth poses risks to construction materials used to build your house, the contents of affected areas, and the people that live in the house with you, all desire a safe and secure environment.

Overcoming mold damages to your Santa Ana home requires expertise and the right equipment to handle the widespread effects that occur. From the moment that you discover mold growth in your home, you should give our emergency response team a call so that our SERVPRO technicians can help you limit the spread of the colony and its effects on the at-risk areas and occupants of your property.

One of the points that are critical to remember is that attempting mold removal on your own can not only often be ineffective, but it could be hazardous on its own. With over a dozen common varieties of mold and fungus that can damage your home, there is not a single method of removing them all effectively. In some cases, chemicals and cleaning products can cause problematic reactions when used incorrectly.

A fast response can help limit the spread of the colony and preserve construction materials and the contents of your house. As a colony grows and thrives, it requires organic material as a food source. The stronger and more widespread the organisms become, the weaker and more vulnerable the affected materials become. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you to remove the colonies, and work to preserve the affected materials rather than rely on reconstruction.

While you might believe that mold growth is nothing to concern yourself with, there are substantial risks with allowing a colony to grow and thrive on your property. Trust our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South restoration and remediation specialists to remove the fungi, "Like it never even happened." Contact us anytime at (714) 558-7772.

When Flood Damage Rolls in, Our SERVPRO Team Rolls Out To Help!

Storm Damage When Flood Damage Rolls in, Our SERVPRO Team Rolls Out To Help! Our team is here to help when flood disasters strikes.

How Professionals Handle Flood Damage In Santa Ana


The Santa Ana area often has high winds during the fall and winter. In fact, “Santa Ana” is the name given to these strong windstorms. The constant winds dry out vegetation and increase the risk of wildfires. Then the rainy season begins, and flash floods are possible. When previous fires clear out brush and trees, flooding can be severe. Our company can help.

Flood damage in Santa Ana might include some mudslides and lots of garbage in the water. The water coming into homes can contain a lot of dead plants and tree branches. Animals caught in the flooding can die and add their bodies to the muddy water. Homeowners need to worry about the health risks of the dirty flood water. The workers we hire know how to keep you safe from contaminated water.

SERVPRO crews carefully plan how to remove the dirty flood waters. We have pumps and water extractors on our trucks all the time. The crew leader decides how to get the water out of the lower levels of your house. Workers follow the directions. Because the water is full of dirt and bad things like viruses and bacteria, we need to pump or extract it into containers. Then the containers are disposed of by following hazardous waste rules.

We use EPA registered disinfectants to treat the areas of your house that were full of flood water. The garbage in the water can include raw sewage, food and animals, chemicals, and other things that might make you and your family sick. SERVPRO sanitizes the flooded spaces after removing the water. We then begin to dry out the property.

SERVPRO uses air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry out your property. Drying out the wet spaces is important. If the wetness stays, mold can grow and damage your home. Fast action is needed because mold can begin to grow in 24 to 48 hours.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South has expert workers who can clean up your home after a flash flood. We take calls at (714) 558-7772 all day every day. Call right away after the flood because more damage happens the longer you wait.

Storm Damage Cuando Ocurran Daños Por Inundación, Nuestro Equipo  De SERVPRO Estará Allí Para Ayudarlo Nuestro equipo de SERVPRO está aquí para usted cuando ocurren desastres por inundación.

Cómo Los Profesionales Manejan Los Daños Por Inundaciones en Santa Ana

El área de Santa Ana a menudo tiene fuertes vientos durante el otoño y el invierno. De hecho, "Santa Ana" recibió ese nombre por las fuertes tormentas de viento. Los vientos constantes secan la vegetación y aumentan el riesgo de incendios forestales. Y después comienza la temporada de lluvias, y hay posibilidad de inundaciones. Y cuando los incendios anteriores sacan los arbustos y los árboles, las inundaciones pueden ser severas. Nuestro equipo de técnicos puede ayudar.

El daño por inundación en Santa Ana podría incluir algunos deslizamientos de tierra y mucha basura en el agua. El agua que entra a los hogares puede contener muchas plantas muertas y ramas de árboles. Los animales también pueden quedar atrapados en la inundación, pueden morir y agregar sus cuerpos al agua fangosa. Los propietarios deben saber por los riesgos de la salud del agua sucia de la inundación. Los trabajadores que contratamos saben cómo protegerlo del agua contaminada.

Las cuadrillas de SERVPRO planean cuidadosamente cómo eliminar las aguas sucias de la inundación. Tenemos extractores de agua en nuestro camioneta todo el tiempo. El líder del equipo decide cómo sacar el agua de su casa. Los trabajadores siguen las instrucciones. Debido a que el agua está llena de suciedad y cosas malas como virus y bacterias, necesitamos extraerla en contenedores. Luego, los contenedores se desechan siguiendo las reglas de protocolo.

Utilizamos desinfectantes registrados por la EPA para tratar las áreas de su casa que estaban llenas de agua de inundación. La basura en el agua puede incluir aguas residuales crudas, alimentos y animales, productos químicos y otras cosas que podrían enfermar a usted y su familia. SERVPRO desinfecta los espacios inundados después de eliminar el agua. Y luego comenzamos a secar la propiedad.

SERVPRO usa motores de aire, calentadores y deshumidificadores para secar su propiedad. Secar los espacios húmedos es importante. Si la humedad permanece, el moho puede crecer y dañar su hogar. Se necesita una acción rápida porque el moho puede comenzar a crecer en 24 a 48 horas.

What to Avoid When Dealing With Mold Damage in Your Santa Ana Home

10/7/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation What to Avoid When Dealing With Mold Damage in Your Santa Ana Home Mold can appear in many colors and be found on walls or the ceiling of your home. Contact SERVPRO to investigate and remediate.

Santa Ana Homes are Not Immune From Mold Damage Even in Our Dry Climate

It is well-known that mold requires moisture to grow, making the generally dry climate of Santa Ana seem like protection from microbial outbreaks. The interior of any home hosts numerous water sources that can leak or overflow, however, opening your home to the risk of mold damage. If you notice a musty smell or see visual evidence that mold is a problem in your home, we offer expert remediation services.

The small amount of moisture necessary to support mold damage inside your Santa Ana home can be surprising. A crack in the seal of your sink drainer or a family member’s persistent habit of failing to keep the shower curtain inside the tub can deposit enough water to start a domino effect of mold colony growth. Whatever the cause, we are ready to craft a plan to eliminate the water source and abate the mold problem.

SERVPRO mold remediation crews frequently act as microbial growth detectives. Because plumbing is often hidden behind walls and under cabinets, and modern homes feature many bathrooms, food prep areas, and water using appliances, the beginnings of mold damage can go undetected by the homeowner. Even the high humidity of a kitchen or bath can provide enough moisture for some molds to take hold if exhaust fans are not present or used. We are familiar with the many places mold can thrive and are adept at containing and removing the infestation no matter how hidden.

Our remediation crew chief evaluates the mold damage carefully before determining the areas to treat. SERVPRO follows the EPA protocols to prevent the spread of moldy residues during remediation, using physical barriers and considering the use of negative pressure air filtering equipment during the project. Our team uses personal protective equipment to ensure we do not track moldy materials into other areas of your home. We remove mold in the containment space employing a variety of scraping, scrubbing, and abrasive techniques that restore both porous and non-porous surfaces safely back preloss condition. A final application of EPA registered antimicrobial product helps prevent regrowth of mold.

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South has the experience, technicians, products, and equipment to remediate a mold outbreak in your home. Call us at (714) 558-7772 to set up a mold damage assessment and abatement plan.

SERVPRO arrives at every commercial water removal project with multiple submersible pumps and truck-mounted water extractors onboard our service vehicles. Stocking the necessary equipment means no delay between the assessment by our crew chief and the commencement of water removal services. Another benefit of our fully-outfitted green trucks is the availability of power generation independent of your hotel’s grid in the event the water loss requires a temporary cessation in electrical service for safety purposes.  

Our team of experts addresses a wide range of water removal challenges with a comprehensive set of remediation strategies. If wall to wall carpeting suffers damage, the SERVPRO crew uses restoration industry best practices to remove the moisture in place. We often chose to remove and replace wet padding in these cases as an inexpensive and practical approach. Weighted water extractors move across the carpeting in a deliberate and systematic pattern to pull as much water out of the fibers as possible.

We measure moisture levels with sophisticated instruments, setting a baseline for drying goals. Thermal imaging locates any hidden water in recesses or cavities. It is vital that all water exits as the damage it causes is progressive and secondary issues such as microbial growth becomes more likely with every passing day that moisture remains. Once we find, release, and remove all standing water, our skilled crew members position air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to accelerate the evaporation of lingering moisture.  

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South has skilled technicians and is well-stocked with state of the art water removal equipment. When a water removal disaster strikes, make sure to call us at (714) 558-7772 to schedule an assessment and begin the extraction process.

Fire Damage When Fire & Soot Damage Strikes Your Home, Our SERVPRO Team Strikes Back! Contact our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South team for professional fire damage restoration services.

How SERVPRO Cleans Different Kinds Of Fire Damage In Santa Ana

Fire leaves different kinds of coatings or soot on surfaces depending on what burned in your Santa Ana house. Each type of soot gets a different cleaning method. Our technicians check out all damage and match the best cleaning method to soiling. One fire site can need a variety of cleaning methods. We can handle it all.

Some soot is light and ashy in your Santa Ana home after fire damage. This kind of damage responds best to dry sponging, brushing, and often vacuuming. Using sprays or wiping this kind of damage can smear the soot and cause staining. Our crews expect this kind of damage when the fuel for the fire was quick burning items like papers.

When SERVPRO finds thick, sticky soot on surfaces that is a clue that the fire burned slowly in that area. Fabrics and electrical fires can produce slow-burning fires. The flames are almost invisible, producing a dark smoke that can spread throughout your home. Because the soot holds tightly to surfaces, we choose to use products that help break the bond. Wetting agents that loosen the soot spray on, and then we use a cloth to wipe the soot away. Sometimes we need to use a rough sponge or another tool that helps us scrape the sticky soot off a surface.

Kitchen fires make soot that coats items and surfaces with a thin, hard to remove film. The soot can be very bad smelling, too. The protein in a kitchen or grease fire is what makes the soot thin and tough to clean. We use cleaning products that dissolve the thin coating. Sponges with a scrubber can help break up the coating, especially if we used a cleaner with a grainy texture or a solvent.

Items with small parts or hard to reach areas like window shades might cleanup best after a fire in an immersion tub. We soak the items and sometimes use advanced solutions like ultrasonic treatments to loosen the soiling. Our production facility and employees can use specialized techniques on personal belongings we removed from the fire site.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Cómo SERVPRO Limpia Diferentes Tipos De Daños De Fuego en Santa Ana

El fuego deja diferentes tipos de hollín en las superficies dependiendo de lo que haya quemado en su casa en Santa Ana. Cada tipo de hollín tiene un sistema de limpieza diferente. Nuestros técnicos chequean todos los daños y combinan el mejor método de limpieza. Un sitio de incendio puede necesitar una variedad de sistemas de limpieza. Podemos manejarlo todo.

Algunos de hollín son liviano en su casa de Santa Ana después de un fuego. Este tipo de daño responde mejor con esponjas secas, al cepillado y, a menudo, al pasar la aspiradora. Usar aerosoles o limpiar este tipo de daño puede manchar el hollín y causar manchas. Nuestros técnicos saben que este tipo de daño por fuego es causado por papeles.

Cuando SERVPRO encuentra hollín grueso y pegajoso en las superficies, es una pista de que el fuego ardió lentamente en esa área. Las telas y los fuegos eléctricos pueden producir incendios lentos. Las llamas son casi invisibles, produciendo un humo oscuro que puede extenderse por toda su casa. Usamos agentes humectantes que aflojan el hollín, y luego usamos un paño para limpiar el hollín. Algunas veces tenemos que usar una esponja áspera u otra herramienta que nos ayude a quitar el hollín pegajoso de una superficie.

Los fuegos de cocina producen hollín que cubre objetos y superficies con una capa fina y difícil de quitar. El hollín también puede oler muy mal. La proteína en un fuego de cocina o grasa es lo que hace que el hollín sea delgado y difícil de limpiar. Usamos productos de limpieza que disuelven la capa de hollín. Las esponjas con un estropajo pueden ayudar a romper la capa, especialmente si utilizamos un limpiador con una textura granulada.

Los artículos con partes pequeñas o áreas difíciles de alcanzar, como las cortinas de las ventanas, podrían limpiarse mejor después de un incendio en una bañera. Remojamos los artículos y algunas veces usamos soluciones avanzadas como tratamientos ultrasónicos para aflojar el ensuciamiento. Nuestro equipo de producción y nuestros empleados pueden usar técnicas especializadas sobre los objetos personales que sacamos de la casa dañada por fuego.

Help for Water Damaged Visitor Attractions in Santa Ana

8/14/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Help for Water Damaged Visitor Attractions in Santa Ana If the Old Courthouse Museum or other museum in Santa Ana suffers from a water damage event, the best recourse is to contact SERVPRO.

Team SERVPRO Arrives on the Scene With BOTH the Certified Technicians and the Equipment to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Attraction

Santa Ana is home to a wide range of museums and historic buildings maintained for the education and delight of visitors and the pride of local residents. When water harms one of these institutions, the entire community loses an essential dimension of what the city represents. Our team of disaster restoration specialists awaits your call for assistance.
 
Older homes repurposed as museums and learning centers make the visitor's experience unique. Commercial water damage in Santa Ana to these local treasures is not only a loss to the owner but also to the community. Because the public visits these buildings, the reputation of the city as an exciting and desired destination depends on how accessible and inviting the attractions are. The crews we dispatch understand you need a speedy resolution to water damage, preferably completed with as minor a disruption to the operation of the venue as possible.
 
Resist the temptation to wait until a slow season to complete a full water removal and structural drying process. SERVPRO can devise a plan that respects your need to keep as much of the attraction in operation as possible during restoration. Waiting risks secondary damage, including mold growth and continuing deterioration of the structural components. For example, if carpeting does not receive thorough in-place drying, including the padding and subfloor, the carpet repeatedly saturates again, revisiting the water damage scenario.
 
We arrive ready to assess and restore, fully stocked with multiple pumps, extractors on our green SERVPRO service vehicles. Our IICRC trained technicians immediately implement the plan designed by our experienced crew chief. A fundamental task is moisture metering and monitoring, combined with infrared scanning that reveals hidden caches of water. As water removal proceeds, the drying goals for various areas of the establishment are established based on the initial moisture levels recorded for the building materials.
 
Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers move in to reduce the moisture content fast. SERVPRO technicians position the equipment to achieve the most efficacious results, seeking a balance of drier air, movement, and temperature to move liquid water out of materials into the air as vapor. The vapor is then condensed or absorbed for removal. We evaluate the situation with an eye to creating smaller drying chambers constructed with vapor barriers like heavy duty plastic sheeting. Drying proceeds faster, and unaffected or previously dried spaces are available for routine business purposes.
 
Finding a reliable professional commercial disaster company is crucial to preserving and protecting historic buildings and museums. SERVPRO of Santa Ana South has the expertise and the equipment to make it happen. Call (714) 558-7772 to set up an assessment.

Restaurando El Daño Del Agua a Sus Pisos De Madera En Santa Ana

Water Damage Restaurando El Daño Del Agua a Sus Pisos De Madera En Santa Ana SERVPRO de Santa Ana South está aquí para ayudar las 24 horas del día.

SERVPRO Puede Restaurar Su Hogar Dañado Por el Agua

Cuando agua daña su casa en Santa Ana, debe obtener ayuda para extraer el agua y secar el edificio lo antes posible. Si el agua permanece empapada en los materiales de construcción, se deterioran rápidamente. Nuestros técnicos pueden ayudar a eliminar el agua y secar la estructura de su casa antes de que ocurra daño permanente.

Estás orgulloso de los pisos de madera en tu casa de Santa Ana, pero el daño del agua puede arruinarlos. El agua que se desborda de un fregadero o bañera o goteos de tuberías con fugas se mueve a la parte más baja de una habitación o espacio. Los pisos absorben la humedad y pueden mostrar daños severos si no actúas rápido. Tenemos formas de restaurar el daño si nos llamas de inmediato.

Los pisos de madera dura pueden recuperarse del daño del agua mejor que la madera más blanda debido a su densidad. No absorben agua fácilmente, por lo que los empleados de SERVPRO tienen la oportunidad de restaurarlos si tenemos tiempo a llegar al trabajo rápidamente. Nuestra personal primero elimina charcos de agua con extractores. Luego traemos motores de aire, calentadores y deshumidificadores para comenzar el proceso de secar la área.

Los técnicos de SERVPRO miden los niveles de humedad en el aire y la madera con equipos especiales.Usamos deshumidificadores para reducir la humedad del aire entre 30 y 45 por ciento. Esto ayuda a secar los pisos de madera porque el agua en la madera puede moverse al aire. Los motores de aire apuntan un aire más caliente en la madera húmeda, porque obliga al agua a moverse hacia el aire de la secadora como vapor. Los deshumidificadores capturan el vapor de agua y el ciclo continúa.

Podemos ayudar al proceso de secado mediante el uso de motores de aire tanto por encima como por debajo del piso de madera. Algunas veces SERVPRO levanta algunas tablas de madera para dejar que el aire caliente sople debajo. También tenemos esteras que colocamos directamente en el piso mojado. Las esteras usan aire caliente para extraer el agua en el piso a través de tubos como una pajita. Las esteras ayudan cuando un piso debajo de la madera dura también está mojado. Si el agua no sale de ambos niveles del piso, puede deformarse.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

SERVPRO de Santa Ana South tiene las herramientas, los productos y los técnicos capacitados para solucionar los problemas de daños causados por el agua en su hogar. Llame al (714) 558-7772 para planear una inspección tan pronto como sea posible.

If the water remains soaked into the building materials, they deteriorate quickly. Our technicians can help remove the water and dry the structure of your house before permanent damage happens.

You are proud of the hardwood floors in your Santa Ana home, but water damage threatens to ruin them. Water that overflows out of a sink or tub or drips from leaky pipes moves to the lowest part of a room or space. Floors absorb the moisture and can show severe damage if you do not act fast. We have ways to restore the damage if you call us immediately.

Hardwood floors can recover from water damage better than softer wood because of their density. They do not absorb water easily, so SERVPRO employees have the chance to restore them if we are on the job quickly. Our crew first removes puddles of water with pumps or extractors. We then bring in air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to begin the drying process.

SERVPRO technicians measure the moisture levels in the air and the wood with special probes. We use dehumidifiers to bring the air humidity down to 30 to 45 percent. This helps dry the wooden floors because the water in the wood can move into the air. The air movers aim warmer air at the wet wood, forcing the water to move into the dryer air as vapor. The dehumidifiers capture the water vapor, and the cycle continues.

We can help the drying process by using air movers both above and below the wooden flooring. Sometimes SERVPRO pulls up a few boards to let the warm air blow underneath. We also have drying mats that we place directly on the wet floor. The mats use warm air to pull the water in the floor through tubes like a straw. The mats help when a subfloor under the hardwood is also wet. If the water does not leave both floor levels, it can warp.

Misuse Of Your Santa Ana Electrical System Can Lead To Fire Damages

Fire Damage Misuse Of Your Santa Ana Electrical System Can Lead To Fire Damages SERVPRO Says Do Not Overload Circuits--An Electrical Fire Can Burn Down Your Santa Ana Home

Need Help with a Fire Cleanup in Santa Ana? Call SERVPRO for Help

Most homeowners in the Santa Ana area are actively aware of the risks of fires occurring in their homes. While there are many precautions taken to avoid this occurrence, there are also many mistakes made too often which persist in making this possibility even higher for your residence. One such consistent mistake homeowners make is not understanding their electrical systems.

While many residents of the area might understand the plug and use mentality of electrical outlets in their home, a failure to appreciate the sensitive nature of this wiring can lead to common strains on the wiring which can spark and cause disasters. To avoid these kinds of unfortunate fire damages in your Santa Ana home, here are some things that you need to know about your electrical systems.

Too often our SERVPRO technicians have encountered faulty wiring situations throughout the fire restoration work that we do for the area. Sometimes this is a result of the homeowner seeking to do their electrical work, and other times it is a result of aging lines that were in need of replacement that merely became overworked and ignited. A simple inspection of the lines by a certified professional can help you to avoid this overload of the wiring.

Many homeowners often disregard the warning from three-pronged devices and appliances not to get used in two-pronged (ungrounded) outlets. While this might go without incident for some time, a slight break in the power or surge through this outlet can overload both the outlet itself and the appliance wired into it. Either or both of these sources could then ignite, leading to the need for fire restoration work by our SERVPRO professionals, along with a broken appliance.

No homeowner wants to have to contend with fire damages in their home, but many of these circumstances can get avoided with the right precautionary measures and education about your electrical system. If you have already experienced an electrical fire in your home, give our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South technicians a call today at (714) 558-7772.

Water Damage Potentially The Most Destructive Loss To Your Santa Ana Restaurant

Commercial Water Damage Potentially The Most Destructive Loss To Your Santa Ana Restaurant SERVPRO Keeps Eateries Open with Rapid Water Removal in Santa Ana

SERVPRO Provides Many Retail Shops in Santa Ana Fast Water Removal to Mitigate Damages

When businesses in Santa Ana plan for a disaster the focus might be on fire or wind damage, over even a cyber attack. In fact, one of the most destructive events that your company can endure is damage from water incursion. Water damage has many facets and ways that it presents, but we have the trained technicians and specialized equipment to handle any problem that comes your way.

After a small kitchen fire in your Santa Ana restaurant blazed the extent of the water damage shocked you and your staff. Your kitchen team responded quickly to the fire, but the sprinkler system kicked in, flooding the dining area. Then there is the mess from the powdered layer in the kitchen. When we respond, we have a plan for the fire residues but expect us to concentrate first on the water damage.

Water damage abatement is first in line during SERVPRO’s restoration or safety, and the proclivity moisture has for encouraging secondary damage such as mold growth. Slip and fall injuries due to standing water or even puddling, according to the National Safety Council, cost U.S. businesses over $70 billion in medical expenses and workers’ compensation per year. In your restaurant, you also expose customers to the risk and everyone to the possibility of electric shock.

If water damage remains unmediated for 24 to 48 hours mold growth is a significant danger. Adding water to the mold spores always present in an interior gives microbial colonies they needed to multiply. The food, paper products, wood, and cellulose-based wallboard that is everywhere in your space provide nourishing surfaces for mold to grow. If SERVPRO is on the site immediately, we emphasize removing the water and drying out these elements before mold spores get a chance to germinate and spread.

Water also crumbles drywall, soaks insulation, and causes wood floors to warp and buckle. Speedy action by our SERVPRO employees halts the deterioration and can save that gorgeous polished hardwood you chose for the warm and friendly ambiance in your restaurant. We use pumps and extractors always loaded on our service vehicles to evacuate the water fast, often before the building materials are damaged past the point of no return.

We are a full-service disaster restoration firm, so our crew begins the fire damage repair as soon as we have a firm grasp on the water recovery. SERVPRO considers water and fire damage to be our core services, and you can rely on our training and experience to provide high-quality assistance for the full spectrum of tasks you need to be completed to make it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of Santa Ana South inspires confidence in our water damage clients because of our employees’ experience and certifications. Contact us at (714) 558-7772 to start the process of restoration from all damage your business suffers.

Reliable Professional Mold Damage Remediation In Santa Ana

Mold Remediation Reliable Professional Mold Damage Remediation In Santa Ana With our experience and expertise, our SERVPRO technicians can remediate any hidden mold "Like it never even happened."

You can Depend on SERVPRO for Professional Mold Remediation Services in Santa Ana

The possibility of mold growth is a constant in Santa Ana. The tiny spores of some of the 100,000 plus fungi identified so far are outside and inside every residence, floating in the air and settle on every surface. Until they encounter water, mold spore cause few problems. When they absorb moisture, their life cycle begins which can result in large mold colonies in your home. If faced with a growing mold problem, we can help.

Mold damage in Santa Ana is not particular about the source of the water that fuels it. A flooding event or major plumbing fail indeed can be the reason, but the cause is often more mundane. Household spills and overflows can be fuel if not thoroughly cleaned up and dried out. Tiny leaks under a sink or a clogged drain under a freezer or in an AC condenser offer mold an opportunity. We even see circumstances where persistently high humidity levels were providing enough moisture for mold growth.

Upon arrival at your home, the SERVPRO technicians assess the extent of the mold infestation. We investigate whether additional mold hides behind walls, above a ceiling, or under flooring. Our mold remediation procedure follows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols and Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification standards. Our goal is to rid your property of active mold colonies, reduce the number of mold spores to normal levels, and to help you arrange for the moisture source’s elimination to prevent future outbreaks.

The EPA recommends containment of the moldy area, and we use physical barriers such as heavy-duty plastic sheeting to delineate the contaminated area. Containment keeps uncontaminated areas of your home free of mold debris. A heightened strategy to prevent drift can be the use of negative air pressure and ductwork inside the containment space to filter out spores and moldy residues.

SERVPRO technicians dress in personal protective gear during work shifts and scrape the mold off nonporous surfaces. We employ abrasive techniques like soda blasting to loosen and remove the root-like hyphal fragments from porous structures. HEPA filtered vacuums remove the particles on surfaces after the main removal phase. All moldy material, including any structural components too contaminated to restore, are bagged and disposed of following local hazardous waste codes.

EPA registered antimicrobials treat surfaces to inhibit future fungal growth after the SERVPRO crew disposes of the debris. We ensure all areas receive the appropriate application of the disinfectant and continue the containment until the all-clear according to the labeling precautions. Throughout the project your and your family's safety are paramount.

Water Damage In Your Home

Water Damage In Your Home

There are certain things that every Santa Ana South homeowner worries about at one time or another, among these is the possibility of falling victim to a natural disaster like a fire or flood. While these circumstances always remain a possibility with the appropriate conditions, internal water emergencies are often far more likely and frequent than any of the more detrimental disasters.

While water damage to your Santa Ana South home might come from several different sources, cleaning up this damage and restoring its effects is a similar process across the board. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that even moderate water emergencies can get taken care of with some conventional drying techniques and that the problem is in the past. Unfortunately, without properly cleaning up water damage and drying the area thoroughly, you could be allowing worsening damages to occur.

Fortunately, our SERVPRO technicians get trained to handle all manner of water emergencies and can ensure that the job gets done right. This restoration process begins with a thorough inspection of the immediate damage, as well as using thermal imagery to inspect the areas that are out of the immediate line of sight for persistent moisture, and a broader range of damage you could not initially tell was there.

Working quickly to dry the area and clean up the mess are both common practices of our SERVPRO professionals. Once the area has gotten sufficiently dried using air movers and dehumidification equipment, a better inspection can occur with the structural components and building materials of your home to ensure that they are as strong and stable as they should be. Overly damaged materials might require removal and reinstallation to complete the restoration process.

Water damage in your home might come from any number of potential sources, but overcoming the effects is rarely something that you should handle on your own. Even smaller-scale water damage can have severe effects on your home if the appropriate, thorough measures do not get taken to ensure the area is cleaned and dried adequately. Trust our SERVPRO Santa Ana South technicians to help you through every possible effect of water damage. You can reach us anything by calling (714)558-7772

How to keep your business open during a disaster

5/23/2018 (Permalink)

Many situations can cause a business owner to seek professional water removal services. A burst pipe, a storm, and faulty appliances are typical examples of things that can cause flooding inside of the building of your business. It can get particularly acute if this water accumulates overnight while you were at home during closed hours. A severe storm hits, the window breaks, and then water is everywhere by the next day when you get to work. It is entirely too much water for you to handle by yourself, but fortuitously, there is a professional help that you can contact close to your establishment.

Stagnant water should be removed from your Santa Ana South kitchen store as soon as possible. The longer it sits, the more the surrounding structures can absorb the water. Excessive moisture and flooded water can lead to complications such as rot, mold, and the warping of building materials. The equipment that you sell could also be in danger, stoves and appliances can rust, any foodstuffs can get waterlogged, and the water can ruin packaging. 
 
At SERVPRO, we know how important it is to have your establishment open according to its schedule. Every hour the doors are closed is another hour of lost business. When we receive your all, we aim to get to your property as soon as we can so we may get your doors back open the very same day, if it is possible. 
 
SERVPRO can address the water removal with tools like extractors, wet/dry vacuums, and pumps. Extractors can be truck-mounted if there is an excessive amount of water on your property. All of these devices use suction to remove the water. Using these tools allows our techs to get the rainwater or plumbing failure liquid out of your building as fast as possible so we can address the drying. 
 
Our SERVPRO techs can use many different tools to address drying out the structure of your business. A few common ones are axial fans, dehumidifiers, and air movers. They are all designed to move fresh air around excessively damp places to create an environment of evaporation and water vapor capture.
 
If you are in dire need of water removal on your property, do not delay. Phone SERVPRO Santa Ana South at (714)558-7772. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Strange weather in Santa Ana California

5/23/2018 (Permalink)

Californians often consider certain local weather patterns to be unique to our state – the hot, humid summers, the wide temperature fluctuations in the spring and fall, and all types of strange weather, including fires, wind storms and rain storms. Even if you watch the weather report on television every morning, California weather can surprise you, and before you know it, you're dealing with storm damage to clean up.

Storm Damage Preparedness Tips

First, put our number in your phone: (714)558-7772.  If you're in a situation where a storm has damaged your home, it's likely you'll get your loved ones out and you may be sitting in your car or at the neighbor's house wondering what to do next.  When you have SERVPRO's number handy, we'll be ready for you!

Next, consider your insurance.  Do you have the right kind?  Consumers usually shop for the best price, but around here, we really need to find the best value because nearly every Californian has to deal with damage to their home or vehicle at some point.  Ask your agent what your coverage is like if you suffer storm damage.  What about flooding? Should you consider adding flood insurance?  

The next project to tackle is to take an inventory of your personal property.  There are tools available for your phone or tablet that can simplify the process of documenting your belongings. 

Take a look around your home, and make sure that everything is secure.  Make a visual inspection of your roof and look for any potential problems.  Make sure any carports or porches are secured to the home, and their posts are fastened to the ground.

Finally, as you watch the weather, when you know there is a storm approaching, make sure your yard is clear.  Secure outdoor furniture, and make sure gardening tools are put away.  Anything left out can become a missile in high winds, and a few minutes of care can remove these dangers.

If you do suffer storm damage, then we're here to help.  Call us at (714)558-7772. We'll work with you and your insurance company to help make it... "Like it never even happened."

Santa Ana Soot Cleanup

5/11/2018 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Santa Ana South will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

WE HAVE MOVED !

5/10/2018 (Permalink)

We are excited to announce that our team has moved to a new location in Santa Ana. We spent the past 6 years in a building about a mile away from our new location. Our old office served us well, and we made great memories there, but we could not be more excited about our new spacious warehouse! As I had mentioned before in a previous blog, a lot of new and exciting events would be coming up for our SERVPRO team, well this is one of them. Also Tom Puorro, along with his family are now complete owners of our franchise. He has also purchased another territory that will be also servicing Santa Ana, Called SERVPRO of Santa Ana North!

While we were happy with our old space, there were several motivating factors to make a move :

SPACE! When we first moved into our last office/warehouse we were small, just starting out, getting our feet wet. Six years later we now have 19 employees and counting. We have also hit our 2 Million mark in our business. Our new office offers more square footage, but more importantly it allowed us to rethink our layout. We were about to start from scratch, knock down walls (what we do best) and put up other walls that better suited our team, our company, and our customers. We now have a new spacious warehouse, with a clean room that has state of the art equipment in it. We can house our customers belongings in their individual vaults, with room to grow. We can not express enough our excitement! More space means more opportunity to service our community. 

Our new office is more than just four walls, this is our new home where we will not only make many happy memories between each other but also with our many customers we will have along the way. 

Our SERVPRO Family would like to thank everyone for their support through the years and with our move. Our team has been working extra hard to insure that we would be in not only a comfortable place,but a high functioning, spacious place. Also that our customers will continue to be well taken care of.  We would like to invite you to our future ribbon cutting, the date is still to be determined but it is in the plans.

Does Your Santa Ana South home have Mold ?

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Sometimes fungi hide from you and you do not find it until it gets out of control. Anytime water gets into your Santa Ana South home, mold possibly forms. Many times a fungus grows from a slow water leak that you did not know existed.

As soon as you notice fungi growth, it is vital that the problem gets remediated promptly. Sometimes if left untreated, mold causes health effects in some people. To be on the safe side, call SERVPRO's Mold damage experts in Santa Ana South to give you an estimate on what the remediation process entails. Anytime a fungus is present it means that mold spores exist as well. If you do not do anything about the mold problem, many times the spores float to other areas of your home and create more fungi.

Our SERVPRO specialists are IICRC certified and know how to mitigate many types of mold damage scenarios. Our crews use industrially advanced equipment and chemicals to remediate fungal issues. All procedures we conduct throughout the restoration process follow strict standards and guidelines set by the EPA and IICRC.

The EPA mold remediation guidelines got developed for schools and commercials buildings. Our team of specialists follows these guidelines for residential properties. The guidelines provide a flowchart of critical steps in mold remediation.

The IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide For Professional Mold Remediation is the first published standard for the restoration industry. The guide includes principles to follow including to protect the health and safety of workers and occupants during the restoration process.

Another principle we follow from the IICRC guide is to control the contaminant from its source and make sure spores do not get airborne and cause fungi to grow in other rooms. The guide then suggests that everything contaminated gets removed from the home. Lastly, the guide stresses the importance of correcting the moisture problem so that a fungus cannot grow in the same or other areas.

Do not take your chances with mold. Anytime you even think you might have a mold problem call SERVPRO Santa Ana South at (714) 558-7772 for help twenty four hours a day and seven days a week.

Watch out for that Mold !

SERVPRO works closely with testing companies, these companies come out to each job we call them on, they take a small sample of either the mold, or what we may believe is mold or asbestos. They take these samples back to their labs, test them and get back to us with the results. This is how we do our part in making sure that everything is sanitary and safe for our customers homes, and families before we allow them to stay in the home or moved back into their home, depending on the situation.

Be aware of mold, and what signs to look for. This will keep your home and health safe year round.  Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth. If you have a water loss do not let it sit because mold can grow and grow. The end result of the mold growing behind your walls will be symptoms of sickness.

Conditions In Santa Ana Might Be Right For Mold

2/7/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Conditions In Santa Ana Might Be Right For Mold SERVPRO of Santa Ana South knows what to do if mold grows in your home.

It’s estimated that more than 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your home, call SERVPRO of  Santa Ana South to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.

If you suspect mold, call us today at (714)558-7772

What to do when there is fire damage to your Santa Ana home

2/6/2018 (Permalink)

Fires can be a devastating force to your Santa Ana South home. Sometimes one of the worst effects fire can leave behind comes less from the flames and more from the extinguishing efforts of the dedicated firefighting teams in the area that put out the blaze. Depending on the severity of the structural fire to your home, extinguishing might have taken quite a lot of water and time to achieve. This scenario can result in a lot of water damage on top of the fire restoration that you already need.

While this is often a lesser considered fire damage aspect to Santa Ana South homes, excessive water damage is often the result that many families have to deal with before proper fire restoration service can even begin. Fortunately, you have a local restoration company at your disposal that can help you deal with all aspects of fire and water restoration.

When our SERVPRO restoration specialists arrive at your home to begin assessing the damage, our concentration lies in preventing further damage from occurring. Our team boards up broken windows and tarps over holes that might have gotten created from the fire or the extinguishing efforts, successfully protecting your home. This process prevents elemental damage from occurring while the inside restoration process is getting completed.

To successfully restore your home from its fire damage, water restoration has to get accomplished first. Our specialists utilize pump trucks and portable pump devices to quickly extract all present pooled water from your floors throughout the affected area. Once drying efforts are a success from combining both dehumidification and air moving equipment, our focus can switch back to assessing the fire damage present in your home.

While there are many stages to successfully restoring your home after a devastating fire, choosing the right restoration team can take a lot of stress and worry off your shoulders. When you are facing fire damage in your home, call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South. We can be reached anytime at (714)926-1268
