Water Damage Sacramento House with Unwanted Water Leakage? Fast!! Call SERVPRO for Extraction and Drying SERVPRO SAYS--Temperature and Humidity Control Means a Comfortable RH Relative Humidity Making Your Sacramento Home Water Loss Gone for Good!!

Why Immediate Water Removal is Essential for Your Sacramento Home

Many Sacramento homeowners strive to maintain the needs of their house through unexpected events and circumstances that threaten structural integrity or quality of life. While there are many instances that homeowners can benefit from handling on their own, water damages are rarely among them. These situations spread quickly and require a fast-responding team of professionals with the right equipment to overcome.

What many residents do not understand about their need for water removal services for their Sacramento home is that from the moment water begins to pool and collect, it immediately starts to impact materials and surfaces it touches adversely. Saturation occurs right away with materials like cabinets, drywall, and wood framing. The longer that these situations go unresolved, the worse the damage becomes to these essential elements of your household.

A reason that our SERVPRO technicians remain available 24 hours a day is to help mitigate emergencies like excessive water damages. Even smaller scale incidents can benefit from the fast response of our professionals equipped with top-tier equipment designed to make restoration and mitigation as efficient as possible. From the moment that our technicians arrive at your home, we assess the full scope of the damages your house has sustained while the team uses fast extraction tools like truck-mounted pumps and wet/vacs as needed.

Drying the area is critical to preventing lasting damages to structural elements throughout your residence. We have the equipment to force moisture out of saturated materials and unseen cavities of the walls to ensure that this moisture can get collected by the running dehumidifiers. We can check our progress and focus efforts by using thermal imagery cameras to detect moisture pockets.

While you might not want an experience that requires professional water removal in your home, these often cannot get avoided entirely. If you find yourself battling excess water and its damaging effects throughout areas of your residence, you can trust in our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team to help. We can arrive quickly to help keep the situation from getting worse as we make efficient plans to restore the damaged elements. Give us a call anytime at (916) 587-3438.

Mitigation for Smoke and Fire-Damaged Sacramento Homes

When disaster strikes, Sacramento residents want to know that there are solutions available to them to restore and protect their property, regardless of the time of the day. With our SERVPRO 24-hour response team, we can offer our customers the full measure of our mitigation services and preliminary restoration techniques at any time that they need them. The availability of our technicians gives us the ability to handle situations as they happen, servicing multiple homes simultaneously as recent wildfire victims have required.

Fire-damaged Sacramento homes require immediate attention to protect and preserve structural elements and the contents of the property. If your home was fortunate enough not to have been destroyed by the Camp Fire, then our mitigation work ensures that at-risk items can get removed by our Contents Department to a safe facility nearby for individual cleaning, deodorization, and storage until they can get returned to the home following successful restoration from our SERVPRO team on-site.

Cleanup is one of the most pressing services for homes that have not gotten ravaged by the recent wildfires. Soot and debris spread quickly throughout the property and require specific techniques to overcome. Our SERVPRO technicians on-site have advanced tools and equipment to help remove this presence from the surfaces, contents, and environment. This process begins with the use of our air scrubbers fitted with HEPA and charcoal filters. These machines can pull particulates, debris, soot, and dust from the air and trap it within the onboard filtering system.

Smoky odors and stains are threats that homes face, even when they do not become substantially compromised structurally. Smoke can infiltrate through openings in the house and spread quickly throughout the open areas to affect the entire house. Our technicians at your address can utilize our equipment like thermal foggers to release a dense chemical solution into the damaged areas to neutralize foul odors on contact. This same process is safe for use on clothing, furniture, carpeting, and upholstery.

Recovering from fire damages in your home, even smaller scale situations, requires the expertise and equipment available to our certified technicians. You can rely on our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team to show up fast to help. Give us a call anytime at (916) 587-3438.

Commercial Some of the Biggest Problems With Sacramento Commercial Water Damage When water damage is on a large scale, you need to call SERVPRO. We have the equipment, technicians and experience to handle the job.

SERVPRO Has What it Takes for Water Removal from a Warehouse in Sacramento

Although finding a company capable of handling water removal from a warehouse in Sacramento may seem difficult, we at SERVPRO remain confident that we can handle even the largest of water removal and restoration projects in the area. Through superior logistics, networks of allied companies that act as a safety net should something go wrong, and industry-leading standards in equipment technology and availability, we handle water removal from large buildings without trouble. If you still have doubts, here are a few of the techniques we use to dry the place out quickly and thoroughly.

High-Volume Water Extraction
When a water removal project from a Sacramento warehouse calls for extraction of standing water, many companies balk at the prospect of handling such a large volume of liquid. Even worse, some may begin the extraction process under-equipped and poorly prepared, and may not remove water from the premises in time to prevent some of the worst damage from happening. We use truck-mounted extraction pumps to remove standing water as quickly as necessary, bringing in additional trucks as needed to make sure the building gets drained before damage can get any worse.

Fast Drying
Once standing water has been cleared, we can begin the process of drying the area out and eliminating moisture that has already soaked into materials in the building and stored objects. By creating targeted air currents throughout the building, we can pick up water droplets on a large scale before depositing them in buckets via our fast-acting chemical and thermal dehumidifying technology.

Care for Contents
Depending on what you have stored in the warehouse, we may have to use special preventative and restorative measures to protect the building's contents. If they present a safety hazard when mixed with water, be sure to let us know so that our technicians can don adequate personal protective equipment.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento provides industry-leading care for our commercial customers in the aftermath of a disaster and has the resources required to handle even the largest projects. Contact us at (916) 587-3438.

Attention Sacramento Homeowners--Call SERVPRO for Storm Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Storm Damage Attention Sacramento Homeowners--Call SERVPRO for Storm Damage Cleanup and Restoration That's Right, Sacramento! No DIY Storm Water Removal--Call SERVPRO

Flooding in Your Sacramento Home Requires Professional Cleanup

There are circumstances which impact your Sacramento home that the average homeowner cannot handle on their own. With the right equipment and expertise, professional restorers like ours can overcome situations like flooding in your residence, where inadequate cleaning and attempts can only serve to make the damage worse and allow for secondary effects that are hazardous to the house and its occupants.

Overcoming flood damages in your Sacramento residence often requires an immediate response from dedicated and experienced professionals like our SERVPRO team. With the right equipment and training, flood effects can get handled systematically to lower the impact and irreparable damage to the contents and structural elements of the property. Even still, many homeowners work to try and cut corners or save out-of-pocket expenses by attempting to clean up flood damages on their own.

A concern about improper restoration techniques from DIY approaches is the potential to miss lingering moisture and dampness trapped in spaces challenging to see. In flooding situations, water damage can affect wall cavities, the space above the ceilings, and penetrate below flooring materials. Traditional equipment for cleanup cannot reach these affected areas, so the dampness persists.

Lingering moisture in these areas can lead to secondary effects like mold and microbial growth throughout the house. Within as little as a couple of days, mold spores can seat into organic materials like drywall and wood framing to feed on this matter and grow as a colony. If mold spores throughout the affected environment have a chance to colonize and begin to spread throughout the home, you are also going to need our SERVPRO IICRC-certified remediation technicians to overcome this situation as well.

While no homeowner gets prepared for the possibility of unexpected flooding in their home and the damage that it can do, having the right team of professional restorers ready to help you, can make all of the difference in recovery. You can always depend on our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team of qualified specialists to help you assess the situation and begin work quickly on returning your home to preloss condition, "Like it never even happened." Give our emergency response team a call anytime disaster strikes at (916) 587-3438.

SERVPRO's Way To Solve Your Mold Damage Problems In Your Sacramento Home

10/24/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation SERVPRO's Way To Solve Your Mold Damage Problems In Your Sacramento Home SERVPRO can help to eliminate existing mold infestations and greatly lower risk of future problems.

Mold Damage Threats In Sacramento Homes

Many of our most severe mold damage calls in Sacramento come from old homes. Whether you have just purchased the property or lived in it for many years, it is possible for your home to have extensive mold damage if it is more than a few decades old. SERVPRO can help to eliminate existing mold infestations and greatly lower risk of future problems, but first, you need to know where to look for fungal growth in your residence.

Furniture
With old houses often comes old furniture, and it is here that many cases of mold damage in Sacramento begin. Both on the exterior of the fabric and within the plush, stuffed interiors of many older furniture sets, spores can grow and thrive with little to no extra food or water. Signs of mold damage on fabrics include discoloration and unusual fuzzy textures, but in many cases, the greatest extent of growth may be impossible to detect inside the object. If you notice any signs of fungal growth around a piece of furniture, be sure to temporarily remove it from the home to stop further damage from occurring.

Wallpaper
When was the last time the wallpaper got replaced across the entire home? Old wallpaper can begin to break down and become an easy target for hungry spores. If you would like to safeguard your walls against the spread of mold in the future, give SERVPRO a call and ask about mold-resistant interior paint jobs.

Wood Floors, Cabinets, and Stairs
Any exposed wood surface in your home could be a potential starting place for a mold infestation. Although most wood surfaces have some kind of protective finish applied to them upon installation or manufacture, these can be worn away with time and make the object or area vulnerable. Consider refinishing surfaces in your home to both prevent possible mold problems and leave the place looking shiny and new.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento can help to identify and eliminate all areas of mold growth in your home. Give us a call at (916) 587-3438.

Open the Gates for Flood Damage Remediation in North Natomas By Using These Simple Tips

Storm Damage Open the Gates for Flood Damage Remediation in North Natomas By Using These Simple Tips Whether flooding arrives at your home from a broken appliance or overflowed toilet, your best recourse is to contact SERVPRO for remediation services.

Preparing Now can Help Reduce Your Need for Water Removal Services in North Natomas

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 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 in North 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 gas 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 Gardenland 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.

Severe Weather Can Allow Flooding in Your Sacramento Home

As a Sacramento resident, you are all too familiar with the severe weather systems that can impact the area with little warning. Preparing for some of these occurrences is next to impossible. Many homes throughout the area become damaged even with precautionary measures. If this damage is severe enough, effects like flooding the interior of your home could result.

While you might not consider your Sacramento home to be at high risk for flood damages, but there are many situations in which these outcomes can occur. Roof damages are among the most common avenue for floodwaters to enter a home, especially when these effects are not widespread throughout the community. The troublesome thing about roof damages is that many homeowners are not aware that there is a problem with this area of their house until it has failed to protect the interior.

By the time that you recognize flood damages starting in your house, it is beyond your capabilities as a homeowner to stop this intrusion. The best advice that you can follow is to reach out to our SERVPRO water damage restoration specialists to rapidly respond and work to mitigate your loss while we set up our plan for restoring the damages the flooding has caused to your residence. Swift water and moisture removal are crucial.

One of the first tasks that our team does, once we arrive at your home, is to seal off the source of the flooding as best as we can. This process can involve boarding up or tarping over penetration points in the supports, plywood or shingles of your roof. This temporary repair can thwart the water penetration and allow our SERVPRO technicians the opportunity to begin crucial steps like extraction and drying.

There are many different ways that storms and their severe conditions can damage your home. While you cannot always prepare for these scenarios, you can make a plan to know whom you call when disaster strikes. Our SERVPRO of North Sacramento emergency response team is available 24/7, let us help you overcome the damage in your home. Give us a call today at (916) 587-3438.

Fire Damage in Sacramento Residence

Fire Damage Fire Damage in Sacramento Residence Kitchen Fire Damage

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 North Sacramento 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.
