Silverado Fire Rages Through SoCal Prompting Our Restoration Experts to Respond

The active wildfires here in Southern California are increasing their impact as growing Santa Ana winds add fuel to these devastating blazes that are encroaching in our area. Evacuations have closed hundreds of schools and forced over 90,000 of our neighbors to seek safety. The "Silverado Fire" in the Irvine area continues to burn with the backing of strong winds.

  • Santa Ana winds

The Santa Ana winds that are enabling the fires to rapidly increase their reach can have speeds in excess of 60 miles per hour. At this point it is not determined when they will alleviate force and fuel to the fire. The National Weather Service has warned of “very rapid fire growth” in this area. SERVPRO Meteorologist Lela Davis said that the Santa Ana winds were already very dry when they reached the Southern California valley, allowing them to quickly pull moisture out of vegetation, increasing the risk for wildfires

Socal Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

While Southern California homes may not often contain a basement, if your home does it's important to know what steps to take if a flood occurss.

Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Cerritos basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Standing Water in Your Cerritos Home Doesn't Stand A Chance!

Extracting Standing Water From Your Cerritos, CA Home

Imagine a calm Sunday afternoon in your place of peace and tranquility. No interruptions, just pure bliss.  Nothing could ruin this day...or so you thought. Just as you get home and open the front doo, you set foot in the entryway and - slosh! That's when it find several inches of standing water pooled together throughout the home. Where is this coming from? Towels obviously won't do the job. What can be done?

Our team of experts is on your side to answer and take action to these questions. With our use of cutting edge technology we are prepared to handle any size disaster. So how does it work?

When standing water occurs, there is no delicate way to take care of it. Our field techs are equipped with Portable Flood Removal Extractors designed to properly eliminate pools of water in a residence or commercial environment. This equipment is designed with two, three stage vacuums (three rates of suction) to not only extract the standing water but also eliminate moisture in small hard-to-reach areas. This high powered extractor is designed to be portable so even in tight spaces it can get the job done. 

Once the water has been extracted and as much moisture eliminated as possible, our techs work together to develop the correct drying plan for the remaining zones affected. Drying services are initiated with dehumidifies/air movement and work is completed in the most efficient manner possible. When appropriate our staff work with approved vendors to ensure that the source of the loss is repaired and all signs of moisture are completely eliminated. 

With us, standing water doesn't stand a chance!
