Grease fires are dangerous.

Kitchen grease fire explosion. Do not leave heat sources unattended in the home.

Tips for containing a grease fire:

  • Turn off the heat.
  • Cover the flames with a metal lid or baking pan.
  • For smaller flames, you can smother it with baking soda.
  • Larger flames can be put out with a fire extinguisher.
  • Do not pour water on the flames.
  • Do not try to move the pan anywhere.

If you are not able to extinguish the fire quickly and it begins to spread, get out of the home immediately.

Call 911 once you are in a safe place outside the home.

Do not go back inside for anything until firefighters contain the fire completely.

You can prevent kitchen fires from happening by not leaving open flames unattended.

Keep flammable items away from flames.

Heat things at a lower flame setting especially when cooking with oil.

Keep these tips in mind when using heat sources in the home. 

In the event that you do experience a fire damage in your home, once the fire is out call SERVPRO of Carlsbad to help cleanup and get your kitchen back to working condition.

Oh my quad, there's water everywhere!

Commercial building flood with quads and motorcycles. Commercial flood in a motorcycle shop.

This business walked into a pool of water in the early morning. 

The commercial building is right down the street from our office so we were able to begin removing water within 15-20 minutes of the phone call.

Our guys had the business back to normal in just a couple hours so customers were not interrupted during their shopping trip. 

We have a large team so we are able to get to jobs quicker and start sooner than other companies. 

Since we were able to begin extracting quickly, none of the merchandise was affected and the business didn't have to spend money on any lost products. 

SERVPRO of Carlsbad has the man power to get the job done efficiently every time! 

We are the local north county team you can always depend on.

Storm proof your home ahead of time!

Green trucks in a rainy parking lot. When the storm hits, call out team ASAP.

In Southern California you never know what to expect from the weather. One day it's 100 degrees and the next morning it's 49 degrees.

Although they try to predict the weather, it's never 100% accurate and it's best to always be prepared for storms. 

Homeowners can spend nicer days making sure their property is prepared for catastrophes ahead of time so when they strike, the damage is hopefully lesser.

If you discover a roof leak, fix it as soon as you can before the next storm hits. Make sure you have proper drains set up to steer water away from your home and prevent flooding. Cut back or down trees that are leaning and could potentially be blown into your home. Be sure to put away patio furniture and bring umbrellas down when the winds begin to pick up so they are not blown into windows. There are many tips that can help you prepare your home better for a storm. The less damage done by a storm, the less money spent fixing it!

Employees standing behind table with pizza, salad, water and cookies. Say cheese pizza!

Our SERVPRO loves to give back to the community when we are able to. For example in this picture our team members are serving pizza, salad and cookies to the kindergartners and their parents for a literacy group. The literacy group focuses on teaching the parents ways that they can help their children learn to read better at home that way they are better prepared for future school requirements. We try our best to participate in local events or donate our time in some way. We are here for our community and our customers. It was such a joy to be apart of this event and seeing the smile on each kids face as they walked into a room full of pizza, cookies and school supplies. 

Fall in line team!

Employees lined up in front of green truck. Ashley, Mario, Mike, Bobby and Sam.

We are falling back into time and fall in November. November days mean storms will be approaching before we know it. The days are shorter which means the weather gets cooler. Cooler weather can be accompanied by wind and rain. I know we don't get too many wild storms in sunny San Diego, but when they do hit, they tend to hit hard. It's best to take precautions and prepare for the worst when the weather is at it's best. Our employees are always prepared to deploy out to storm areas to help cleanup and restore properties to normal conditions again. Our trucks stay stocked full of equipment and materials so we are always ready for any water, fire, mold or bio hazard job that comes our way.

Don't worry, wheel fix it!

Flood in a commercial building full of motorbikes. These bikes are made for dirt not water!

The last thing you would think to happen indoors is pouring rain, right? Isn't that what roofs are for, to keep the weather OUTSIDE.

Unfortunately incidents such as broken indoor sprinkler heads and pipes bursting are more common than you would think. Some piping is older, weaker and sometimes some were just done wrong. There is no way to predict when an incident will occur but you can be more prepared or avoid water damage by holding safety meetings on proper operations of equipment so that they do not hit sprinklers above such as forklifts. You can also be prepared by having an emergency flood number on file such as ourselves, SERVPRO of Carlsbad.

As we hope that you never have to experience an emergency but if you do, call the team you can trust. SERVPRO of Carlsbad (760)729-7505.

Wildfires north of us.

Screenshot of news displaying firefighter putting wildfire out with hose. We are so grateful to our firefighters.

Just last week a wildfire started north of us in Santa Clarita. It's that time of year when brush fires start in Southern California. Firefighters have been working around the clock to keep this fire contained. It has burned through 9,400 acres of land some containing a few buildings but mostly brush. They say it's only 20% contained but the firefighters are slowly getting the upper hand. Although most of the fire has only affected brush, the smoke and soot left behind in the air and on the houses surrounding can cause immense damage. Soot can sit on the inside and outside of home walls, items and flooring causing a strong smoke odor that will not go away unless professionally cleaned. We are trained professionals in the fire damage cleanup services and can get your home back to clean air breathing again.

Warehouse equipment.

Bright green equipment in our warehouse. We have plenty of equipment!

As one of the larger SERVPRO franchises, we are well prepared for any size job. 

Many of our jobs come from commercial property managers.

Every hour that water damage sits in a business, is time and money lost for them so it's important to get the water extracted and demolition started quickly. 

Our team is full of experts in getting jobs done in a timely manner so commercial buildings can get back to business quicker.

We offer 24 hour services so when a disaster strikes after hours, we are there to get to work promptly. We've been able to begin working on jobs in the middle of the night and finish them before the store even opens like the mall is a good example of a job we did. We were able to extract all the water and begin drying before the mall even opened!
