SoCal has it's Rainy Days

SERVPRO van driving in rainy weather We have 50+ vehicles on the road inspecting jobs every day.

Southern California is not known for rainy weather but when it does rain for the few days out of the year, it comes in heavy! We are blessed to live in a beautiful place where the sun is always shining but because of that we do not really prepare ourselves and our properties for the potential damage that a rainstorm can bring. Storms show us the faulty roof tiles, and potential bad workmanship of the home in general. Sadly the only way to know these faults exist is for a rain water leak to show you. As long as SERVPRO gets out there as soon as possible to address to issue early on, it will be less damage to the home and get the home back to working condition quickly. 

If you have a leak or water damage in your home or business, call us today for an inspection!

Fire Restoration: Smoke & Soot Cleanup

3/10/2022 (Permalink)

Home burnt from fire. A fire can spread rapidly once it starts.

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

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.

Most Fires Start in the Kitchen.

3/7/2022 (Permalink)

Burnt kitchen cabinets and stove from grease fire. It only takes seconds for a grease fire to spread rapidly throughout the room and eventually house if it is not stopped in time.

Who knew cooking in your kitchen could turn into this? This tenant in Escondido was planning to have a peaceful dinner at the rental property before this situation occurred. It's important to always be prepared for the worst in the event that this happens. It can happen to anyone but there are ways you can be more prepared for it. Always keep clutter out of the kitchen. Wipe down all surfaces in the kitchen including floors and walls so there are no flammable spills or layers of film for the fire to catch onto easily. Keep baking soda in reach of the stove top to throw on any open flames. Baking soda cuts off the oxygen supply to a fire similar to a fire extinguisher. In the case the fire is not tamable immediately call your local fire department and evacuate the premises. Always use caution when cooking and if you do experience a disaster like this, SERVPRO of Carlsbad will be there to clean it up for you.

SERVPRO flag on building downtown. SERVPRO of Carlsbad (760)729-7505

In the middle of the early morning in San Diego a pipe burst and flooded a 13-story high rise in downtown. All of the occupants were evacuated and SERVPRO was called out to access the damage. The entire building was flooded. The elevators stopped working and the water that was sitting in between working on floors began growing mold. This was a huge commercial mess. SERVPRO was able to pull together all the local large loss teams and get it handled. Our team members worked two shifts around the 24 hour clock. Every single condominium needed drying out and demo whether it was minimal or not. Some even needed mold remediation. It was a long process but we were able to get the job done and leave the building manager a happy man. This is proof that there is no job too big for us to handle. Here's a shot of our SERVPRO flag hanging from one of the scaffolding.

Oh my QUAD, A Flood!

Dirt bikes and quads around a flooded show floor. Our team got the show floor cleaned up quickly so customers could continue shopping for this business!

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.

Prepare for Storms!

Flags blowing in wind at office. We are proudly ran by veterans of the USMC.

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!
