Water damage to a wall Whether flooding arrives at your home from a broken appliance or overflowed toilet, your best recourse is to contact SERVPRO for remediation services

When areas in and around North Natomas are affected by severe weather, residents need to know how to protect their homes and other structures. After events cause damage to homes, SERVPRO of North Sacramento goes to work making everything “Like it never even happened.” We also have crew members that specialize in restoring personal belongings, household furnishings, and other items.
 
When a home or business in Natomas sustains flood damage, the contents of that home also suffer. We have various techniques that get these items clean and sanitary after filthy floodwaters contaminate them. Using cleansers specially chosen for their ability to strip soiling away without damaging the finishes on your objects, we clean up items with hard, durable surfaces. Special basins allow us to clean softer items, including stuffed toys and decorative pillows. Thoroughly rinsing everything we wash helps ensure that filthy soiling no longer contaminates these items.
 
We use a special compartment to help these items dry faster. We take readings to show us when these items reach optimal dryness, so we know when to start the deodorization process. During this step, we implement either ozone gas or hydroxyl gas. Hydroxyl is often preferred, especially in situations involving water. Ozone can cause discoloration when materials retain small amounts of moisture. Hydroxyl gas does not create this problem, and other benefits include its safety around occupants, both plant and animal. We can continue to work in the area when our hydroxyl generator deodorizes your belongings. After we complete the process of restoring the smaller-sized contents of your home, we can also deodorize the rest of your home. Even as our other team removes damaged wall materials and flooring, odors can remain. Eliminating the sources of these smells with Hydroxyl generator or thermal fogging can make working inside your home during restoration much more efficient. It can also keep new materials from picking up these odors.
 
SERVPRO of North Sacramento wants to help homeowners in Natomas and Willow Creek, as well as those around the Sacramento Airport successfully mitigate flood damage. Contact our 24-hour service line by calling (916) 587-3438 whenever your home sustains damage.

Technician deodorizing the building SERVPRO of North Sacramento will safely help you handle fire damage.

Fires can become dangerous situations for Sacramento homeowners once the first responders have left the premises. While it might be tempting to forego the cost of professional restoration and work to clean up and assess the damage to your property on your own, this is never a wise choice. Many homeowners lack the experience and training to navigate a fire-damaged property safely and can be unaware of the hazards and risks. 

Damage assessment and debris removal are the first steps to overcoming fire damage in your Sacramento home. Our SERVPRO of North Sacramento professionals can arrive quickly upon your call to begin our intricate inspection of the property to determine the farthest reaches of the effects from the blaze and the best approach to overcome the situation. 

Our SERVPRO of North Sacramento technicians on site have to accurately assess the damages to the property to determine the right personnel, equipment, and approaches to restore the property entirely. This inspection also allows for accurate estimations and documentation of the fire damage for the insurance provider that covers your home. We are familiar with what these providers require to approve a property damage claim for the house following a fire, and we work to comprise the necessary evidence quickly to get your claim secured. 

Debris can present multiple hazards and threats to your property and those inside of it. Our professionals have extensive training in protection equipment to avoid hazardous effects from debris cleanup and to avoid inhalation of airborne particulates, smoke residue, and other potential contaminants. Cleanup of the debris can be the removal of materials from the affected areas, the cleaning of surfaces, and directly improving air quality within the house. 

While there are several steps to restoring a home entirely following a widespread structure fire, knowing the best team to choose from the start can make the process seamless, cost-effective, and high-quality. Give our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team a call to begin a thorough damage assessment and estimation process that precedes our reputable restoration tactics.

Water damage is one of the most common types of property damage a homeowner will face and it needs to be addressed as quickly as possible to prevent any secondary damage. Our SERVPRO team will use their tools and expert knowledge to evaluate the source of the water, remove the moisture from your home and possessions and clean up the home so you can get your life back to normal as quickly as possible.

Common types of water damage in Sacramento that we see in homes include plumbing failures in the home, appliances or hot water heaters leaking, concrete slab cracks allowing water to enter the home and flooding from excess rains just to name a few of the circumstances SERVPRO technicians deal with on a daily basis.

Once you contact our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team, we will access if there is standing water that requires removing, if possessions or furnishings are or have the potential to be affected by the water.

Our team can eliminate this situation and choose the best drying method to remove moisture and mitigate the chances of potentially harmful mold developing. We don't have a one-size-fits-all for our clean-up efforts and each case is handled to meet the individual needs of the consumer for the best outcome possible.

Our drying methods include everything from the use of manually mopping the area to the utilization of industrial-sized, truck-mounted extractors to remove large amounts of water in the most time-efficient way possible.

Types of Smoke Damage That Affect Your Sacramento Home

Most Sacramento homeowners could not tell you what smoke damage can do to their homes, let alone what differences exist between various types of smoke after a fire. Our highly-trained technicians have the expertise and the education to quickly access your property following a fire to make determinations such as the type of smoke damage to ensure the appropriate equipment is brought on site to restore the home quickly.

Understanding the difference between smoke types when you experience fire damage in your Sacramento home does not get the situation resolved any faster, but it can help to narrow the field for those experienced enough in restoration efforts to make a significant difference fast. Our technicians have extensive training show them the difference between the residues and causes of dry and wet smoke damages within your home, and what methods are the most effective for restoring these areas to get you back in your property quickly.

Wet smoke damage results from a fire that burned at a lower temperature, causing more of a smolder than a rapidly spreading blaze. These types of fires produce considerable smoke, which can seep into fabrics, furniture, and other areas not directly impacted by the spread of the fire itself. Our SERVPRO technicians have premier cleaning strategies to remove the thick coating and sour odor left behind by wet smoke.

Dry smoke is often the opposite, with its cause coming from rapidly spreading fires burning at very high heat. The spread of this situation produces a thinner smoke and a powdery residue. While much of the unaffected surfaces can get cleaned with traditional solvents and detergents, these types of fires often require our SERVPRO professionals to utilize controlled demolition techniques to prepare the area for reconstruction.

While understanding the types of smoke that could affect your home does not impact what occurs when a fire develops, it can help you to appreciate that not all fire restoration teams are the same. With our advanced equipment and highly-trained technicians, our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team can clean up the mess fast. Call us today at (916) 587-3438.

Fire Debris Cleanup and Removal in and Around Sacramento

The wildfires this year around Sacramento have been some of the most destructive in decades. In the most recent disaster, one town burned almost completely in the fire that engulfed it. Removing the damage and restoring the area is going to take time and professional restoration service teams.
 
SERVPRO of North Sacramento cleanup crews from Sacramento work to dispose of the fire debris from these major disasters while also preserving a safe work environment. With so much burned material in a relatively small area, the content level of airborne particles is far higher than in a more common house fire. For basic safety, team members begin efforts wearing breathing masks and other protective gear if needed.
 
With such an incredible amount of debris, there are dozens, even hundreds of different types of residues present as well. In this environment, the few items not physically damaged by the heat and flames are not restorable due to the smoke and soot. While removing these personal or structural property items, restoration technicians wear protective gloves at the bare minimum to protect their skin against particulates as fine as insulation, chemical residue burns, and other hazards.
 
SERVPRO teams dispose of everything according to the strict guidelines set up by the California and Federal EPA agencies. Many charred items go into dumpsters for removal and proper disposal procedures. The residents and their environment already suffered a major blow, adding to the problem by polluting the air, soil and water table is not something we do or condone. Our teams understand that while these actions take time and additional cost, they are the only way to safely restore the area so that residents can return to rebuild their homes and businesses on safe ground.
 
At SERVPRO of North Sacramento, our goal is to return homes and property safely back to their owners. That can mean pulling down and removing a burned out kitchen, or complete removal of all structural and personal property so the owner can rebuild on a clean and safe foundation. If you have suffered from the recent Camp Fire or another disaster, call our office at (916) 587-3438 to schedule an inspection or to have one of our teams help you get started on the road to recovery.
