SERVPRO of North Sacramento - Biohazard remediation; also known as crime scene cleanup

6/18/2020 (Permalink)

Picture of our technicians in PPE Sacramento Residents: We provide immediate service day or night!

SERVPRO of North Sacramento knows biohazard cleanup can be a stressful and demanding process that requires trained professionals to work long hours and be subjected to a range of catastrophic circumstances.  Biohazard cleanup is NOT the same as a standard cleaning company or janitorial service. Crime scene cleanup is a term applied to forensic cleanup of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious materials.  It is also referred to as biohazard remediation because crime scenes are only a portion of the situations in which biohazard cleaning is needed. SERVPRO of North Sacramento provides biohazard remediation and recovery services for many biohazard situations.  These include the following:

  • Coronavirus - viral pathogen.
  • Sewage backups.
  • Crime scene cleanup.
  • Natural death cleanup.
  • Suicide cleanup.
  • Homicide cleanup.
  • Accident cleanup.
  • Blood cleanup.
  • Hoarding scenes.

The job of a biohazard cleaner is to thoroughly cleansanitizedisinfect, and deodorize the site where a crime, natural death, suicide, homicide, trauma, or accident occurred.  It is important to understand each service offered and the differences between them:

  • Cleaning removes food and other types of soil from a surface such as a countertop or a plate. 
  • Sanitizing reduces the number of pathogens on that clean surface to safe levels.  It is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
  • Disinfecting a surface will “kill” the microscopic organisms.
  • Sterilizing is the process of making something free from bacteria or other living microorganisms.
  • Deodorizing is to remove or conceal an unpleasant smell.

Cleaning alone will always positively contribute to the health of occupants because allergens (a substance that causes an allergic reaction) and microorganisms (a microscopic organism, especially a bacterium, virus, or fungus) are removed from surfaces.  There is still a risk of cross-contamination because the solutions and the cleaning tools used could be spreading disease.

Sanitizing reduces the number of bacteria present by 99.9 percent but it does nothing about viruses and fungus.  Sanitizing is better than cleaning alone, however, the reduction of pathogen populations on environmental surfaces is exponentially better when you disinfect.

Disinfecting is the process of killing (inactivating) harmful and objectionable bacteria, and other microorganisms (pathogenic) by various agents such as chemicals, heat, ultraviolet light, ultrasonic waves, or radiation. Disinfection is usually considered a 99+% kill compared to sterilization that generally attains 100% kill.

Sterililzing is the removal of 100% of the organisms.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento knows biohazard cleanup requires qualified, experienced technicians to handle potentially hazardous materials such as human and animal blood, body fluids, tissue, and an awareness of proper handling of the crime or trauma scene which is critical for the safety of everyone involved.  There is an emotional toll involved in biohazard remediation, therefore, having dedicated professionals who understand the responsibility is key.  At SERVPRO of North Sacramento, our technicians are highly trained and experienced in biohazard cleanup.  We believe the expertise offered is another way of giving back to our community and leaving affected environments, "Like it never even happened."

Picture of moisture reading on the floor SERVPRO of North Sacramento provides 24 hour fire and water damage restoration service in Sacramento.

Water  damage can be costly. It can ruin personal property you cherish such as family photos or your grandmother's antique hutch.  These items can be worth millions or be worth nothing to someone else.  Not only can water damage ruin your precious personal possessions but it can also seriously damage the home in which they are stored.  If you act quickly, you can minimize the damage and possibly save some of your possessions.   Some of your success depends on how long the water has been around.  It is possible that some pieces of furniture can be saved and restored, and sometimes, even carpet can be cleaned.  Unfortunately, electronics hit by water are, generally, not salvageable.  Any kind of water, liquid or moisture damage will void the warranty on that electronic, if a warranty exists.

Do not ignore flood water in places, like your basement, even if there is only one inch of water or you notice dampness.  Even slightly wet areas can become a perfect breeding ground for mold.  Mold is the result of unwanted moisture which forms colonies that will often appear as fluffy and hairy patches and spots.  Mold growth can ruin walls, carpet, flooring, furniture and cause poor indoor air quality.  Poor indoor air quality can cause respiratory problems such as asthma and lead to severe illness.  Preventing mold growth is key to keeping your home's air clean and healthy.  Call your insurance company immediately before you do anything, and file a claim, if necessary.  Then call SERVPRO of North Sacramento: (916)587-3438 and we will dispatch our trained professionals to your property asap to mitigate the water damage to your personal property and home.  Here are a few tips to deal with a flooded room:

  1. Disconnect the power, unplug any electronics, and remove electronics, furniture and movable items immediately.  
  2. Get rid of the water.   If you have no electrical power to the room, use towels, old blankets or mops to remove the water.
  3. Dispose of damaged items responsibly: Go to your city or town's waste management website to find out where to recycle old paints, stains, adhesives and other toxic liquids, any damaged electronics from cell phones to TVs and computers, furniture, and even drywall. You can also look through Earth911.com to find recycling centers in your neighborhood.

After any water damage situation, your primary focus should be safety then immediate action is crucial.  Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento professionals and we will respond immediately and return your property to its preloss condition..."Like it never even happened."(916)587-3438

Sacramento Flooded Homes Need the TLC of SERVPRO to Mitigate the Damages

2/28/2020 (Permalink)

Technician measuring the moisture content of the framing and beams with a meter SERVPRO Takes the Guesswork Out of Flood Cleanup and Drying in Sacramento Properties with Advanced Equipment and Measuring Devices

Issues You May Deal With after Flood Damage in Your Sacramento Home

Flooding can happen following a hurricane, a tornado, or a flash flood, and even a well-prepared Sacramento homeowner can be caught up in flood damage. Having floodwater in your home can be dangerous and inconvenient.

In the aftermath of flooding in your Sacramento residence, you need to handle several issues. It is beneficial to hire a certified company to help you manage the destruction. SERVPRO can help you deal with issues such as:

Damaged floors

During groundwater intrusion, mud and debris can cover wood flooring. Our staff can dry your floors by using pumps or wet/dry vacuums to remove the water and using air movers and dehumidifiers to dry them. Shovels and squeegees may be the first tools used to clear away the murky deposits. If the flood damage is severe, we can tear out the non-salvageable boards and dry the underpinnings or concrete pad.

Ruined appliances

Electric appliances that get submerged in water can stop functioning. We can assess your electronic equipment to determine the severity of the damage. If they can be salvaged, we can wipe water and debris from their surfaces and contact an electronics restorer to repair them.

Health risks

Regrettably, flood damage can impact your health and that of your family members negatively. Floodwater carries debris and silt of every kind. It can contain chemical contaminants, disease-causing organisms, and possible fecal matter. If your carpeting and other porous material are contaminated, we recommend replacing them. Restoring porous materials like drywall and soft materials like carpets after Black Water absorption is not a wise decision. Though we strive to restore, and not replace, flood-damaged materials, safety comes first.


Mold grows in moist areas, and a flooded house is perfect for mold to breed. Mold can lurk under wooden floors, on the ceilings, or walls. Mold spreads fast, and it needs a trained eye and advanced tools to locate hidden mold in your home. Our team can identify the areas where mold is present and physically remove contaminated porous materials. We can also dry the affected surfaces thoroughly. Our team can also use quaternary compounds and chlorine bleach solutions to inhibit mold.

Bad odors

Bad odors are linked with flood damage because of the dirty water and possible mold infestation, which leaves a stench. Your upholstered furniture and draperies can have unpleasant smells. Our SERVPRO team can remove the bad odors using thermal fogging equipment and air scrubbers to leave your indoor air fresher and healthier.

After experiencing flood damage in North Natomas, South Natomas, and Sacramento Airport, you need fast, professional help. SERVPRO of North Sacramento can help you remove the water and clean up your home. Call us at (916) 587-3438 for efficient restoration.

How to Restore Water Damage From Lead and Copper Pipe Leaks in Sacramento

2/28/2020 (Permalink)

water leaking from copper pipe Inspect your plumbing often for sign of water damage. And should you find a leak, call SERVPRO!

Should You Convert Plumbing in Your Sacramento Home to PVC?

After a water loss incident occurs, many homeowners begin to question the composition of some aspects in their Sacramento home. If you have experienced even one substantial breakdown of your plumbing network, for example, you might begin to wonder whether replacing the entire system is a worthwhile investment. There are many points to consider in determining the best possible time to make this investment and how to go about it.

Up until around 1980, many homes throughout the area used mainly copper or lead plumbing. This construction has led to water damage now in Sacramento properties, as these older materials weaken or degrade as. As there are many homes in our service area that even date back to the turn of the 20th century, we stay ready and prepared as a premier restoration company to address water loss incidents expected to occur.

After loss incidents get cleaned, dried, and restored for your home, you get to face the reality of the fragility of the plumbing installed in your house. As much as contractors like the plumbing team that you hire to repair this damage to the system might want to upsell you on a full replacement, you need to know that this decision is in your best interest. Here are some tips to help you decide.

  • Inspect your plumbing on your own when portions of the drywall get removed for the repair to occur.
  • Do your research about what you get told by the professionals to ensure that you are getting truthful information.
  • Check to see if your insurance offers a reduction in premiums for upgrading your old lines to PVC or PEX.

Even upgrading your plumbing does not guarantee further breaks and leaks are not going to occur. Our SERVPRO team has a rapid response to these emergencies with advanced tools to address most obstacles we encounter in a water-damaged home. Between our air movers, positive pressure systems, and desiccant dehumidifiers, we can make moisture damages, “Like it never even happened.”

 We are always available for your emergency home restoration needs. Our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team is local and ready to respond 24/7. Contact us anytime at (916) 587-3438.

Why SERVPRO Uses High-Tech Devices to Locate Water Damaged Areas in Sacramento Residential Properties

Leaks around a drain from the tub, a sink, or a toilet can release water into enclosed spaces within your Sacramento residence every time water passes through it. If the water never accumulates and steadily spreads out, it can weaken the ceiling downstairs or cause the framework below to rot and increasingly lose strength. Finding where water migrated after leaking out through a crack in a drain pipe also prevents unexpected situations in the future.

Saving our customers time and money with fast and accurate detection in Sacramento when water damage exists is why SERVPRO technicians use specialized equipment. Such devices help us quickly find hidden water before it can damage your home’s interior without the need to dismantle any structures. Eliminating any unnecessary work keeps costs where they should be and also shaves considerable time off the length of time we need to work inside your home.

Having a leaky drain in one location does not rule out the possibility of additional problems with plumbing or other sources of water. Some water that might cause deterioration of your home could come from the outside. Windows with air conditioners installed in them often age faster because of the additional weight, as well as any dampness that accumulates within them.

Because we want to provide all of our customers with mitigation and restoration work that adequately addresses their property, we inspect the house for other locations. Infrared imaging is a non-destructive, highly accurate, and rapid means to find damp areas within a home. Because of variations in temperature, more than one reading might need to take place after we have adjusted the indoor temperature.

These readings from our infrared equipment can rule out areas that are not damp at the moment. When water damage already exists, we need to restore that area to prevent continued deterioration. We do this so that the job at hand requires as little replacement materials as possible. When your belongings sustain water damage, we can provide you with an inventory sheet of those items that need replacements purchased. Cleaning and restoring costs less than the expense involved with replacing those same things, and often takes less time, as well.

When water damage is a problem in your North Natomas, Gardenland, or South Natomas residence, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438. We also serve the neighborhoods around Sacramento Airport.

Winning Tactics for Sacramento Water Damage Remediation

leaking water heater Water heaters and other appliances can dump a large amount of water when they fail. Contact SERVPRO for efficient water removal services.

A Robust Range of Water Removal Strategies: Why SERVPRO Rises to the Top of Restoration Options in Sacramento

The quantity of water a broken water heater or washing machine sends into your Sacramento home can be substantial. Household appliances continue to obtain water from the supply lines if a pump or hose breaks or the tank or drum leaks. If the malfunction happens overnight or while you and your family are away at work or school, hundreds of gallons can infiltrate your home. We have experience ridding residences of significant amounts of water, why our team is a preferred community resource.

Risks of Hidden Water

One of the issues faced by professional Sacramento water removal specialists is how to access fluids from a water loss that migrated into building cavities. Leaving the water to drain slowly or eventually evaporate is not an option. Lingering moisture progressively deteriorates building structures and can result in vigorous microbial growth and damage. We are familiar with these threats to your home’s integrity and safety, and this knowledge is why we explore every option to get the water out of every affected space in your home.

Dual Purpose of Controlled Demolition

As water moves from the laundry or utility room into spaces behind walls and above ceilings, building materials wick up moisture. Wet, porous materials quickly become unsalvageable, swelling, and warping. Using careful demolition techniques permit two desired outcomes:

  • Ruined building materials are excised, reducing odors, microbial growth, and the tell-tale distortion of water damage.
  • Removing sections of drywall allows access to the pooled up water and improves airflow and ventilation for more efficient drying.

Methods and Tools Used

Although demolition might appear to be a radical move, it is considered a best practice, why SERVPRO employees learn how to complete it appropriately during the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training. Our technicians mark the wall 24½ or 48½ inches up, ensuring we make flood cuts above the waterline. Stud finders assist us as we plan the cuts. We choose from among our inventory of tools, relying on our training and experience to select the proper option: 

  • Razor knife
  • Drywall saw, or keyhole saw
  • Rotary saw
  • Kett saw
  • Reciprocating saw

When using the power tools, our technicians adjust the cutting depth of saw blades or bits, so they do not penetrate past the drywall. Safety and avoidance of further damage to plumbing, utility lines, or other components is the goal.

The crew we send is highly-qualified in water damage solutions, why SERVPRO of North Sacramento can answer any queries you have about our water removal strategies. Call (916) 587-3438 to schedule an assessment immediately.

How SERVPRO Removes Water in Sacramento Businesses

1/13/2020 (Permalink)

Standing water on floor of office building When the owners of this office called, we removed the water then dried the building. Our goal is to restore your business quickly.

Commercial Water Removal in Your Sacramento Business 

A pipe bursting in the bathroom of your retail shop can have a significant impact on your business. If the pipe burst outside regular business hours, it may be some time before you become aware of the issue. Once aware, it is crucial to work immediately to mitigate as much damage as possible. 

Our SERVPRO team moves quickly toward successful commercial water removal in Sacramento. While you are waiting for professional assistance, you should ensure the water main is off to stop more water flowing from the pipes and begin drying the impacted areas by mopping tile floors and using towels to sop up any excess moisture. Mopping is especially essential to ensure that your business does not suffer any secondary damage, such as loose floor tiles or hazardous mold infestations. 

We understand that any time your business is out of operation is money lost. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our project manager or crew chief first assesses the damage to the structure, materials, and merchandise within your store. Then, they develop a plan for fast and effective removal of excess moisture from within the establishment. 

SERVPRO restoration technicians remove the merchandise from impacted areas, to ensure that excess moisture and humidity do not damage items that sustained no initial damage. These undamaged items should be kept in a safe, dry place. Damaged items should be inventoried with details for insurance purposes before removal. 

The water damaged areas should be thoroughly dried, and the relative humidity (RH) of the room restored to restore the commercial space to preloss conditions. Technicians use extraction equipment to take the remaining water out of the space. Typically, portable extractors can remove water after a pipe bursting. Technicians may make several passes for optimal extraction. 

We place high-velocity air movers and industrial-strength dehumidifiers throughout the impacted area. These tools pull excess moisture from the materials, contents, and air within the room. The dehumidifying process stops when RH levels are under 60 percent, and the contents are dry. We make it, "Like it never even happened."

Professional Tips for Reducing Damage From Water Leaks in Sacramento

Water damage on ceiling. Part of ceiling removed to expose studs for drying. A leak in the office above caused water damage below. We removed the damaged materials to complete drying and restore the building..

Quick Action Reduces Damage from Water Leaks in Sacramento

Water leaks in apartment buildings present unique issues. There is always a concern about damage to the contents of the unit, as well as the unit below. There is also worry about the impact on other apartments below the affected unit as well. Sometimes the first sign of a leak is water dripping from the ceiling of the apartment below where the original leak occurred.

SERVPRO can help with water removal from a leak in Sacramento in your apartment as well as other apartments in the building. The most crucial step is always arranging to stop the leak. Contain the spread of water within your apartment and units below. Turn off the main water supply or shut off the offending water faucet when there is an overflow.

Apartment buildings are a significant concern for many owners when considering water leaks. A leaking pipe can quickly cause damage to the apartment where the leak is as well as the one below. A slow leak may occur for some time before being noticed. Water may soak the area immediately below the leak, potentially causing structural damage as well as providing an excellent location for the growth of mold.

Use towels to soak up liquid water as much as possible. If a great deal of water has leaked, you may also want to contact the landlord or warn your neighbor below. The owner of the building or the superintendent may need to be involved, especially if SERVPRO is needed on-site to remove water and moisture.

SERVPRO can bring water removal equipment on site as well as air movers and dehumidifiers. We also utilize moisture sensors to locate pockets of moisture. If these areas are not dried, the moisture could be the source of mold growth later, which can cause odors and health issues for some people.

The Real Truth Behind Flood Damage Remediation Success in Sacramento

12/8/2019 (Permalink)

flood damaged living room Don't let the stress of flooding and flood damage get to you! Contact our experienced technicians for water removal and remediation services.

Why SERVPRO Uses Extraction Equipment when Mitigating Flood Damaged Homes in Sacramento

After a flood happens, getting houses and businesses restored to safe and stable condition takes time. The amount of time it takes to recover after a disaster prolongs the stress experienced by everyone in the affected area. Extracting any remaining water trapped inside your residence before we begin drying out your property is 1200 times more effective than just removing water vapor from the air.

This considerable boost is why SERVPRO uses powerful extraction equipment to start working on mitigating and restoring homes in Sacramento experiencing flood damage. We want to reduce your costs, make the process as fast as possible, and restore, instead of replace, as much of your property as possible. The extraction of standing water helps us achieve all of these goals.

Our extraction equipment comes in many sizes. This lets us adapt to any structural components that might keep floodwater trapped in areas. We can swiftly and easily remove water from more than just visible, open spaces of your home.

Injecti-Dry units let us pull water out from under wooden flooring, when we use the mats, or from below cabinetry flooring, with only the extraction tube. Instead of needing to remove all of the uppermost part of the floor, we only need to remove one or two boards. When we find trapped water, we only need to drill a tiny hole to feed the tubing through and into the cavity.

We also use units that look like regular vacuum cleaners, except they're designed to remove water. These wands move across the floor easily and pull up water from small spaces like bathrooms and closets. For larger areas, we can use a Rover extraction unit. This type works with the weight of a technician who rides while standing, extracting any water below the machine.

After extracting, we can begin drying out your house and its contents. Some of these items do require we throw them away, as they can pose significant health risks. We provide you with a complete inventory of these items, and this can help with insurance claims and replacing them, as well.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento's goal is always to help you recover as quickly as possible, with as little stress and worry. Call (916) 587-3438 for help in recovering after flood damage that affects your Natomas or Gardenland residence.

The Pros and Cons of New Construction on Mold Growth after Flooding in Sacramento Businesses

11/25/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Flood Damage Sacramento – Avoiding Mold in Air Tight BuildingS

Flash floods sometimes materialize in seconds, making it challenging to prepare and protect your business contents. Everything is wet, and debris has washed into the office area. Newer office buildings are designed to be airtight to reduce the cooling and heating requirements. With little fresh air coming into the building, mold can proliferate, especially after a severe flood.

Our SERVPRO crew chief is usually first on the scene at every commercial flood damage event in Sacramento. One of their first tasks is to assess the damage, debris in the building, safety concerns, contamination, type of building, and whether the building air exchange system is still operating. The crew chief or the project manager develops a plan to mitigate the damage, arranges for the appropriate equipment and staff to respond, clean, dry, and restore your business.

Managing Fresh Air

Air Tight buildings rely upon air exchange systems to bring fresh air into the building and expel stale, humid air. Depending on local conditions, especially after a storm, the outside air can be very humid. In these situations, the air exchange system may bring in the humid air while SERVPRO is attempting to dry the interior of the building after it has been cleaned. Technicians may recommend turning the air exchange system off or establish negative pressure areas to manage the humidity.

Mold can proliferate in these conditions. SERVPRO technicians are IICRC-certified and trained in mold remediation and prevention. With the assistance of the buildings AC system, dehumidifiers, and internally placed SERVPRO air movers, we focus on removing all areas of moisture. Moisture sensors are utilized to detect moisture pockets and dry these areas before mold can develop.

Occasionally SERVPRO may have to make flood cuts in the walls to access water or moisture pockets. Any of these sources of moisture may contribute to the growth of mold, especially in buildings that are designed to be airtight.

Our crew chief always communicates our plan to our clients, and the approach technicians plan to take to return your commercial space as quickly as possible.

Our Professionals Can Save Your Sacramento Hotel After A Fire

11/4/2019 (Permalink)

Beautiful hotel room suite After a fire disrupts operations in your hotel, it helps to rely on professional mitigations and remediation experts.

Reliable Help When Your Sacramento Hotel Suffers Fire Damage

After a fire disrupts operations in your Sacramento lodgings and event center, it helps to rely on professional mitigations and remediation experts. The inclination of your managers and housekeeping crew might be to close for a short time to get things back to normal. Unfortunately, disappointed customers have other options, and the failure of your accommodations to honor reservations can cause the loss of business into the future. We can share strategies that can respond to the fire crisis while also permitting you to remain open for many of your operations.

Guest Negligence Can Cause Fire Risks
There is an endless number of ways human error results in fire damage in your Sacramento hotel. Your Sacramento hotel, unfortunately, can be the site for one of these accidents. If a guest falls asleep, cigarette in hand, or an iron used to smooth out an outfit is left on; a blaze can start. Smoke from a smoldering slow burn can spread to other rooms, and sprinkler systems, although necessary to quell the fire, can add to the mess by soaking everything.

Containment Strategies Can Minimize Effects
Because of the mandated and build-in safeguards, fires in your property can be knocked down quickly and limited in their direct effects. The problem with fire damage, however, is the tendency of smoke to drift far from the ignition site. The key to mitigating odor and residue migration is to have SERVPRO onsite as soon as possible. We use heavy plastic sheeting and negative pressure air scrubber technology to define the work area to the smallest space possible. Air scrubbers capture the airborne particles in HEPA filters and exhaust to the outdoors. The configuration also prevents further movement of the smoke and associated residues to other areas on your property so operations can continue.

Streamlined Approach and Comprehensive Results
SERVPRO is a full-service disaster recovery company. We can manage everything from fire-fighting water removal to air-quality remediation to efficient soot cleanup. Our production facility can clean, dry, and deodorize affected contents off-site, using a range of innovative resources and our dedicated Contents Processing Technicians (CPT). You can rely on our wide-ranging skills and hard-won certifications to clean up fire damage professionally while supporting the ongoing operation of the rest of your hotel.

Count on SERVPRO of North Sacramento to partner with you when fire damage threatens the overall operations of your business. We have research-proven strategies to share; set up your consultation by calling (916) 587-3438.

Tips for Performing Fire Cleanup in Your Sacramento Residence

Fire damage can cause several structural problems if you do not take care of it immediately. It can also make your home look unpleasant. Cleaning up after a fire is a complicated task. Apart from being emotionally challenging, it also presents some physical challenges and can be dangerous.

It can be daunting to get started with performing fire cleanup in your Sacramento residence. You may clean some parts of the house or contents on your own. However, remember that improper cleaning may cause permanent damage to your home. To ensure that your efforts are appropriate for restoring your home, you can do the following things:

    •    Air out your house to minimize the smoke scent.
    •    Clean laminated surfaces and porcelain, chrome, as well as aluminum fixtures to prevent permanent etching or tarnishing.
    •    Tape wet cheesecloth over the supply and return registers to capture loose soot that is in the air.
    •    If there is no electricity, remove foods from your refrigerator and let the doors remain open.
    •    Dispose of open food packages.
    •    Take clothes with substantial smoke residues and odor to a competent restoration dry cleaner.

It is necessary to use specific supplies and techniques to clean up your home safely and effectively. Our SERVPRO crew can help you in cleaning up your residence after any fire. One type of fire that affects homes is a protein fire. This happens when food on a stove or oven burns, leaving strong, burnt food odors and smoke on structures and contents of a house.

You may also be dealing with a complex fire. This occurs when natural and synthetic items in a home have burned, causing smoke residues to build upon surfaces. This fire also emits smoke odors. Our technicians can remove smoke residues from the affected surfaces to prevent corrosion.

We can pretest the surface to choose the ideal cleaning method. One method we can use to clean washable surfaces is abrasive cleaning. It involves agitating the surface we are cleaning. Our restorers use different strategies to abrade or agitate residues from a surface. For instance, we can apply cleaning products that contain abrasive ingredients onto the surface. Our SERVPRO team can also apply cleaning products with abrasive materials onto the surface. We can also use products like odor counteracting beads and sealants to deodorize your home.

If your North Natomas, South Natomas, or Sacramento Airport home has fire damage, SERVPRO of North Sacramento can help you in cleaning up the affected areas. Contact us anytime at (916) 587-3438 for prompt restoration of your property.

Fast-Track Your Water Removal Process in Your Sacramento Apartment

The Equipment That Aids In Professional Water Removal In Sacramento

Once the interior of your apartment in Sacramento gets wet from a plumbing failure, prompt action should be taken to reduce further damage as time goes on. A professional water removal company such as SERVPRO can help you fix your problems promptly as well as help reduce future issues that could take place. Restoring moisture-related matters can involve a few steps and industrially advanced equipment.

The first step to any water removal project in Sacramento our SERVPRO team takes is to extract any liquid H2O present. We know that it is much easier to remove moisture when it is still a liquid before it has had time to soak into your contents and building materials. Wet materials can also increase your indoor humidity levels, which can become a situation that also takes another step to mitigate. Restoration usually takes three main procedures, including extraction, air circulation, and dehumidification, all of which require the following different types of equipment.

  1. Extraction

Submersible Pumps- Trash pumps or sump pumps can be sufficient to suck up any deep, liquid puddles and put it into a sewage drain

Heavy-Duty Extraction- Truck-mounted extractors can be used to vacuum up water from your floors, carpet, and other fabric items.

  1. Air Circulation

Centrifugal Air Movers- These air movers can push far away from where they get placed, and they usually get set up so that the air coming from them flows in a counterclockwise direction and hits wet walls at a 45-degree angle.

Axial Air Movers- These tools can be used to push higher volumes of air at a lower pressure and can be useful when drying out large, open areas.

  1. Dehumidification

Refrigerant Dehumidifiers- Refrigerant units work by pulling moist air across chilled coils forcing the moisture to condense and get dispensed as a liquid.

Desiccant Dehumidifiers- Desiccant machines work by drawing damp air across a silica gel and then heating the gel to release the moisture. They then exhaust the hot, dry air out to be used in the air circulation created by the air movers.

Prompt structural drying is essential to the successful mitigation of moisture-related issues. When items get wet in your apartment in South Natomas, Sleep Train Area, River Gardens, or American River Parkway, it is wise to call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438.

SERVPRO has What it Takes for Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Sacramento

10/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO vans. trucks, and cars in parking lot Our vehicles are loaded with equipment and are ready to roll to your water damaged business. Call us today!

Why SERVPRO Should Be Your First Call for Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Sacramento

For Sacramento properties, commercial water removal requires more than the standard equipment the regular janitorial crew that cleans the building uses. SERVPRO's green service vans come stocked with industrial-grade portable pumps, extractor wands, specialized attachments, and professional drying equipment.

Extensive Service Fleet

SERVPRO has a fleet of service vehicles ready to roll on-site to assist in the cleanup for water damage within hours of the initial call. Along with their vans, trucks with mounted pumps for large-scale water removal are also available. The technicians bring everything they need on each job site, including generators for situations where electricity is not accessible to power the necessary extraction and drying equipment.

Extensive Training

The technicians undergo comprehensive instruction before they ever set foot onto a live worksite. The training facility has numerous scenarios set up for technicians to learn through hands-on experience the best methods for different types of water loss situations.

Fans vs. Air Movers

Commercial properties must undergo complete drying after a water loss to avoid foul odors or mold infestations in the building. Standard industrial fans do not provide the airpower to dry more than surfaces. The commercial centrifugal air movers used by SERVPRO blow high-velocity air streams and their compact design allows for focused airflow and the use of specialized attachments for specialty drying situations such as floormats or within wall cavities using Injecti-Dry systems.

Industrial Dehumidification Lessens Loss

The faster the ambient humidity lowers in a property, lessens the probability of secondary issues such as mold. Technicians use different types of professional dehumidifiers in tandem with air movers to lower the interior moisture levels and circulate progressively warmer drier air. This cycle dries properties quickly and inhibits mold spore germination. 

SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 has the experience and expertise to perform commercial water removal for both small businesses to large-size corporations and make the water loss, "Like it never even happened."

Is Professional Water Removal Faster In Sacramento Homes?

It is easy to convince yourself that approaching standing water and the drying of your Sacramento home on your own is likely cheaper, faster, and less overwhelming. Many property owners hear professional restoration and only think of the incurred costs and less about the qualified technicians and cutting-edge equipment that becomes available with this option. The question that must get answered is, which approach is the most efficient for the customer?

Choosing between DIY and professional restoration often boils down to experience and equipment used for restoration tactics like water removal in Sacramento homes. The variable that can land on the side of the DIY enthusiast is that with residential extraction tools, such as a wet/dry vac, water removal can begin almost immediately upon the discovery of damage. While We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, our response still usually takes a few hours from your initial phone call.

As much as homeowners might be able to get the initial jump on starting property recovery, they can get limited by the equipment at their disposal. Our SERVPRO team, on the other hand, has a deep inventory of the industry’s best tools and machines. From our truck-mount pump truck in the Green Fleet to portable solutions like the extraction wands and submersible pumps, we have the right tool to suit the specific damage present on your property.

Discovery devices and moisture detection tools are other advantages to professional remediation and restoration services. Without these sophisticated items, homeowners could overlook the full drying of their properties. Not only can this leave the door open for detrimental effects like mold growth, but it can allow for a continual degradation of saturated materials which can ultimately lead to collapse and failure if severe enough.

Our team of professionals has accreditations through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in Water Restoration and Applied Structural Drying, making us a confident and knowledgeable choice for your loss. With our advanced equipment, we can provide a fast restoration of your property. Give our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team a call anytime that you need us at (916) 587-3438.

Secrets of Rebuilding After flood Damage Hits Your Sacramento Home

9/15/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO van in front of a home. We can help you through every worry you have in your Sacramento water damaged home.

SERVPRO has the down low on saving you after water damage hits your Sacramento home. 

Flooding necessitates rebuilding operations in affected homes for several reasons. If flood damage occurs because of severe weather such as a hurricane, various forces such as wind and fast-moving water can teardown different sections of the property necessitating rebuilding as part of the restoration. Exposure to water also leads to deterioration of materials this necessitating removal.

Proper rebuilding after flood damage in your Sacramento home is only possible if you identify all affected areas before starting the process primarily when water is the leading cause of deterioration. Leaving water in concealed areas can force you to redo the process or lead to extreme problems such as mold. Our SERVPRO technicians use a wide range of moisture detection tools to establish all wet areas. The common ones include:

  • Thermal imaging cameras
  • Moisture sensors
  • Manometers
  • Moisture meters

The rebuilding process can pose risks such as injury to the people involved or further damage to the structure, especially when tearing down deteriorated materials. For example, it is possible to cut power cables or plumbing lines when opening up concealed areas such as walls and floors. Our SERVPRO technicians consult building plans to establish the position of utility lines. We also use different tools for different tasks, including rubber hammers, to minimize the chances of unintended damages and injuries.

When flooding only affects a section of the property, there is a need for containment to limit the spread of debris and even fumes from finishing products such as paint. If such materials are left to spread uncontrollably, the restoration process can take longer than expected. Our SERVPRO technicians use different containment approaches. We can place plastic sheets over air vents, doors, and windows when doing controlled demolition. We also have heavy-duty plastic bags to hold materials such as carpets removed from the structure.

Flooding incidents can leave a wide range of physical damages in your North Natomas, South Natomas or Sacramento Airport home. Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 to help with the rebuild. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How Fire Smoke Damage Pre-Testing Helps with Sacramento Fire Remediation

8/27/2019 (Permalink)

Fireman climbing ladder to extinguish 2nd floor fire As soon as the fire truck leaves, we begin our restoration work.

Pre-testing Fire Smoke Damage for Tailored Restoration in your Sacramento Home

A fire produces all kinds of chemical reactions as well as fluctuating the temperature and air pressure in your home. Combusting materials release these chemicals in the form of hot, smoke, which is attracted to cooling air and surfaces. Depending on the type of material combusting, the smoke released can vary between wet and dry smoke. Wet smokes are thick, oily substances that can be odorous and are generally produced by synthetic materials like plastics. Dry smokes, on the other hand, are produced by natural materials like wood and leave behind a sooty, dusty layer of soiling on surfaces. 

Tackling these two-types of fire smoke damage in your Sacramento home can be tricky for a homeowner as cleaning products may be ineffective on certain types. Wet smoke, for example, requires an oil-based cleaning solution, whereas drier smokes can be tackled using vacuums or wet cleaning methods. To avoid choosing the wrong method, and risk spreading smoke deposits around, it is prudent to contact a professional restorer immediately after containment of the fire.

SERVPRO fire and smoke damage restoration technicians (FRST) are trained to recognize different types of soiling and stock a full inventory of chemical cleaning agents. By conducting pre-tests of materials and smoke deposits, our restorers can implement a solution tailored to the types of material burned as well as the requirements of each homeowner. We can use both oil-based chemical cleaning agents and water-based cleaning agents. 

Undertaking chemical action occurs after your SERVPRO technicians have thoroughly vacuumed to remove loose soiling from surfaces. When smokes contacts cool surfaces, the temperature, and air pressure cause them to bind to that surface. Chemical action helps to loosen that bind. If a pre-test reveals, soots are water-soluble a technician can apply water-based cleaners. However, oil-based deposits need dissolving in oil-based chemicals (solvents) before wiping away both oil and solvent. 

A fire can continue to cause damage long after extinguishment. Contact SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 for all your fire damage restoration needs.

Why SERVPRO is the Authority on Restoration Services here in Sacramento

8/23/2019 (Permalink)

Four SERVPRO vehicles sitting at a red light. Sacramento we will show you Why we are always here for your Sacramento issues.

Don’t go at your Sacramento damages alone, let us help.

The job of a restorer is to slow down or completely stop damages at the point of arrival, then work to reverse those damages until the property is returned to its pre-incident condition. At times, restoration services can be completed without the need for any replacement materials. In situations where problems with the structure or structural contents are evident, a good restorer identifies these issues accurately and arranges for third-party contractors on the homeowner's behalf. SERVPRO of North Sacramento sets high standards for restoration of fire, water, mold and storm damages by relying on a restore rather than replace approach.  


We make a point of explaining to customers that mold spores are a natural part of any home environment. Rather than instantly resorting to expensive, and time-consuming, laboratory testing, SERVPRO act quickly to repair the immediate mold damage in your Sacramento home while putting in place safeguards to put an end to recurring microbial growth incidents. So when you come across mold growth in your home, contact SERVPRO for an expert assessment and remediation procedure from start to finish. 

The common causes of mold problems in a home are the presence of residual moisture in cavities behind walls, fittings, or flooring. Water can come from a variety of sources like slow leaks, heavy rainfall, or worn away sealant in wet rooms. When mold spores come into contact with these damp spots, they settle quickly and begin to propagate, causing unpleasant odors and visible colonies. Often, the visible signs of mold infestation are just the tip of the iceberg, which is why SERVPRO restoration service technicians may need to move items around or remove sections of drywall to gain the full picture.  

Mold remediation can span hours, days, or weeks in your Sacramento property. During that time, SERVPRO may need to establish quarantines near the affected area. Since mold can germinate overnight, we work hard to shut off the water supply to the infestation. That can be achieved through advanced structural cavity drying equipment or by controlling humidity at a level that discourages microbial growth using dehumidifiers. Porous materials are frequently non-salvageable in an infestation like this but, once the mold is successfully remediated in your Sacramento home, we can replace them to return your home to its preloss condition.  


Understanding the behavior of smoke during a fire is crucial to performing an on-time restoration service of fire damage in your Sacramento home. Hot smokes are attracted to cooler surfaces. When they come into contact with those cool surfaces, soot deposits appear causing odor and soiling. During a fire, the temperature of the room rises significantly resulting in smoke pushing into cupboards, cabinets, or drawers. This process means that the bulk of smoke damages are frequently located inside pieces of furniture rather than in the room itself. 

SERVPRO restoration services train our technicians to return the interior of furniture to a preloss condition. One of the challenges in restoring rather than replacing furniture is that interior cavities are unfinished. In high-pressure fires, unfinished natural materials are particularly vulnerable and can absorb large amounts of soots or smokes. In inspecting the interior of furniture, SERVPRO technicians can test for the type of soot they are dealing with, as well as how well the surface can cope with cleaning agents.  

When working with wood and natural materials, SERVPRO technicians take extra care to preserve their natural condition. In many situations, a wooden structure can be adequately restored using a combination of light sandblasting with a cleaning solution to clear away soiling. In situations where outer finish sustains smoke damage, we can refinish the furniture to its preloss condition at the end of service. 


A water loss recovery incident usually involves large quantities of water in an area of the home that is not designed to withstand it. Small gaps in construction between walls and flooring can allow large quantities of water to migrate into the cavities of your home, presenting an immediate mold and odor issue. Dealing with water damage for Sacramento homeowners is a specialty restoration service that requires professional care and attention to complete effectively. 

SERVPRO has technicians with qualifications in applied structural drying (ASD.) These qualifications provide a restorer with the tools needed to access cavities in the home and remove residual moisture that may be residing inside. The primary means of drying restricted access areas is by creating air circulation inside the cavity to allow natural evaporation of the offending moisture. Our equipment incorporates heating elements to speed up the evaporation process further and get your home back to its pre-incident condition.  

There is some minor deconstruction required to efficiently drywall cavities, which is why Sacramento homeowners should seek professional restoration services. We must remove the baseboard of the wall so that we can drill small holes into the wall without affecting the aesthetic appearance of your home. From there we can attach injectidry equipment or use rapid air-movers fitted with a flex hose to dry the interior cavity thoroughly. Once drying is complete, we can replace the baseboard safe in the knowledge that your property is safeguarded from secondary issues like microbial growth. 


Road overflows can result in backed-up sewage water entering your property. Emergency restoration for storm damage in Orlando is available twenty-four hours a day via our call-line. Since contamination in water poses a real risk to your health, we advise that you immediately contact SERVPRO on discovering blackwater in your Sacramento home. Our technicians are equipped with the right personal protective equipment (PPE) to enter the affected area without risking infection from harmful pathogens. 

Containment of the affected area is essential to gaining the upper hand in a flood situation. SERVPRO technicians can remove or block furniture to remove it from standing water quickly. Using submersible pumps, we can transport much of the contaminated water supply to an open sewer point. However, any porous materials that have come into contact with black water must be discarded and replaced to avoid cross-contamination.  

Our restoration service encompasses the demolition of drywall. We remove the affected material at up to two feet above the standing water level to ensure any pathogens that may have been absorbed by the material are entirely removed. SERVPRO technicians can then thoroughly disinfect the affected area of your Sacramento home before deodorizing and then replacing the removed drywall with new material to bring your home back to what it was before flood water exposure.  

SERVPRO of North Sacramento is an authority on restoration services for your property after storm, fire, water or mold damages. Contact us today at (916) 587-3438 to arrange a visit from our expert technicians.

Professional Fire Damage Restoration For Sacramento Homes

When it comes to city size in California and capital cities in the U.S., Sacramento cracks the top 10 for both categories. Unlike most cities that size, many residents comment that Sacramento still feels like a community to the and not some overgrown town that lost connection with its population. That’s true for everyday living, and when disasters like a fire happen. 

Clearing out fire damage to Sacramento homes takes specialized training and equipment. At SERVPRO, we train team members to become Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians or FSRTs.  They learn how to use every chemical and tool in our inventory to clean and restore the property. They also learn when the property is too damaged for restoration or repair. 

Initial efforts of SERVPRO FSRTs begin with a quick inspection to ensure safety and then begin removing items for disposal. Team members take these out of the home to eliminate these sources of odors and to reduce the risk of accidentally spreading powdery smoke residues into unaffected parts of the home. 

After clearing out the fire damaged property, team members begin wiping down every surface to remove smoke residues and odors. They start with dry sponges and then use cleaners for difficult areas. As the residues layers grow thicker or stickier, they use stronger cleaners. If an item is not cleanable without causing more damage, team leaders contact the owner and the insurance company. They either dispose of the item at the company’s direction or continue cleaning it if the owner still desires to keep it and wants to absorb the cost. 

Before our response teams arrive to begin work, there are two things you can do to make the process go smoother. 

  •  Have your insurance documents ready for us. That includes the name of the company, its phone number, your policy number, and the report from the insurance adjuster. It is essential to bring us in as quickly as possible, but the insurance company should view the damage before we begin restoration. That way, team members do not waste efforts on the property the company pays to replace, not repair or restore. 
  • Turn off the power. If the fire damaged any wiring in the home, then an electrical current running through them is another fire waiting to happen. It is also a direct threat to team members, the owners, and anyone else in the home.

At SERVPRO of North Sacramento, our goal is to restore every home to its pre-fire condition here and in the surrounding communities of North Natomas, South Natomas, and Gardenland. If your home has suffered through any size fire, call us at (916) 587-3438 today to begin the repair and restoration process. We are here for you.

DIY Drying After Accidental Plumbing Break in Sacramento Store

Renovations and improvements to your Sacramento store can help to bolster its aesthetic appeal to your customer and generate additional revenue with innovative displays and advertisements in the shop. The downside is the added workload to continually think of new looks and functions for areas of the business, and the risks of causing more substantial problems for your business by accident. Anchoring displays and massive signage in the shop can improve visibility for the patrons, but it also requires substantial anchoring into the construction materials of the store. 

The more frequently holes get drilled into the walls of your store, the likelihood increases for puncturing water lines – requiring fast water removal for your Sacramento building. Most plumbing is neatly tucked away behind materials like drywall and kept in the cavities formed between rooms with a shared common wall. Our SERVPRO professionals can help with an immediate response amid a water loss incident, helping to reduce the need for comprehensive restoration and recovery efforts. 

From the time that a line gets punctured beyond the drywall into the cavity, the property owner must move quickly to get the supply to this breach stopped. Depending on the severity of this water damage to the plumbing, high volumes of water are possible within these wall cavities, and it does not take long to begin to saturate materials like drywall to become a substantial threat to trafficked areas of your business. 

With holes drilled into walls of your main floor of the store, your entire stock and inventory become at risk for spreading water damage and moisture concerns. Soft materials like clothing and other fabrics can quickly absorb standing water pooling on the floor, and even elevated relative humidity levels can increase the threat of secondary effects like mold growth for our SERVPRO team to battle. 

Water loss incidents that begin with a breach of your plumbing supply lines can quickly get out of control without experience and leading equipment. Let our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team show you how to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (916) 587-3438.

How Does Fire Fire Damage Assessment Save Money in Sacramento?

7/2/2019 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento to assess your fire damage.

Save Money on Fire Damage Assessment in Your Sacramento Home 

After a fire gets extinguished in your Sacramento home, property owners hurry to get the ball rolling on restoring the house to its original condition right away. In this rush to get the cleaning started, homeowners can often easily risk their health and safety entering a highly compromised portion of a property after a structure fire. Without full working knowledge of what to look for and how to overcome these effects as they get found, owners take unnecessary risks compared to the experienced approach of seasoned restoration specialists performing it instead. 

Many homeowners fail to see how a professional assessment of fire damage to Sacramento properties can save both time and money compared to a DIY approach. The answer lies in the experience and efficiency of certified restoration specialists like our SERVPRO team, and how quickly they can determine both the scope of the damage to the property and the most effective approach to recovering these effects. 

While you can see the structural damages and other pressing effects in your house after a fire gets extinguished, there are many lingering consequences that you cannot see on the surface. Knowing what to look for and how to find it can get attributed to years of fire loss recovery experience and the accreditations from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in both fire restoration and odor control. 

Another reason that choosing our SERVPRO team to help in damage assessment after a fire can prove cost-effective is the relationship that our organization has with local insurance brands. We know what they need as evidence and documentation for filing a damage claim, so we can work quickly to collect it even before you inform this insurance company about the emergency. 

While you might believe that DIY damage assessment saves time and money for your household, it might end up being more costly when effects get overlooked, or your insurance company requests a professional inspection. Give our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team a call today at (916) 587-3438.

Removing Water and Extracting Trapped Moisture are Crucial Aspects of Protecting Wet Homes in Sacramento

6/30/2019 (Permalink)

Drying equipment placed for water remediation After water damage we place drying equipment to prevent further damage the property.

SERVPRO will always stand by you.

When wind pushes water into your Sacramento home during a rain shower or a water line wiggles loose from your dishwasher, everything in the area can get drenched. Water does not stay confined to this area, but moves slowly along, spreading out and creating a larger area of temporary damage. At this stage, the need for proper mitigation increases.

The slow drip from a cracked elbow joint in the plumbing of your Sacramento home needs water removal experts to mitigate the area, also. Wherever water escapes into your living space, we need to stop the situation from worsening. If the water came inside from the rain during a one-time event, it might suffice to make sure that windows seal properly.

Allowing a residential property to remain in a damp state for more than a day without mitigation beginning puts that house at high risk for developing microbial infestations like mold. Deterioration of porous materials also begins to happen. Our water removal equipment stops these things from harming your home. We can also mitigate existing damage and restore the affected area.

Carpeting can dry rot or bubble up where it becomes weak and stretches when damp, creating a substantial loss for many homeowners. Floating a carpet can reduce the chances of stretching while ensuring that the carpeting becomes completely dry again. When only a small area has moisture, we can use another technique using our weighted device, called the claw, that extracts water out of the pad and the carpet.

Water trapped under wood floors can cause warping to happen. Our Injectidry system, often used to pull water out of enclosed spaces like a wall's interior cavity, also works great to draw the moisture underneath the uppermost section of your wood floor. Because these mats draw water out of the entire covered area, they prevent both cupping and crowning from causing permanent damage.

To remove excess humidity from a house, perhaps where exhaust from the bathroom allowed steam to escape into the attic space, we use air movers and desiccant machines. The air movers we use can pull the moisture out of porous attic materials, and then push that water vapor into the dehumidifier. An air scrubber works to remove any dust, pollen, or microbes from the air, making it cleaner and less likely to ruin anything stored in the vicinity.

For any situation requiring water removal and extraction from your home North Natomas, South Natomas, or near the Sacramento Airport, SERVPRO of North Sacramento can assist you in protecting your property from damage that misplaced water causes. Call us at (916) 587-3438 for our emergency services line.

Don’t Let Flooding Take over Your Sacramento Residence

6/16/2019 (Permalink)

Flood damage can't be taken care of alone. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

Flash Flooding and Its Effect on Sacramento Homes

With an area prone to many natural disasters like mudslides, wildfires, and other situations, Sacramento homes can also get damaged by rapidly developing flash floods. Even with a fast response to these situations by trained professionals like ours, the damage has often already happened. Overcoming the effects within your home involves understanding the extent of these symptoms and what must get done to restore the property to preloss condition.

Flood damage can present itself in your Sacramento residence in many ways, and when flash flooding affects your home, you do not have the time to react to these effects before they are widespread in the property. Our SERVPRO professionals have an immediate response to storm and flooding effects, arriving with the full measure of our resources, personnel, and advanced equipment to protect your property as best as we can initially.

It is important to address saturation and standing water as promptly as possible, as these situations can help to meet the conditions necessary for mold and microbial growth. While flooding can be hazardous enough for homeowners and their families, the presence of mold colonization adds another level to the threat to your health and the potential degradation of your house. Additionally, the presence of flash flood waters can perpetually present a risk for bacterial and contamination concerns for the home and its occupants.

Our SERVPRO team works quickly to remove standing floodwater from the floors of your home, and that begins with the introduction of our advanced and powerful extraction tools like our truck-mounted and gas-powered pumps. Once the excess has gotten removed, our team can get to work on cleaning, disinfecting, deodorizing, and applying antimicrobial agents to exposed surfaces and structural elements to prevent this growth.

It might be unlikely that you can entirely remove the risks of flash flooding for many homes in the area, given that these scenarios happen with little warning. Whenever disaster strikes, you can count on the equipment and expertise of our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (916) 587-3438.

Our emergency response crew is available 24/7 to make the fire loss in your home “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Tackles Fire Cleanup For Sacramento Home

Fire damage brings many challenges. There is damage from the flames and smoke, water or extinguishing agents and odor. The proper cleanup for all of these factors must happen before any rebuilding, or structural restorations begin.

When our SERVPRO team takes on fire cleanup in a Sacramento home, we first scope the room to access the scale of the damage and contain the area if there are unaffected portions of the property. Then we immediately remove items too charred or otherwise in non-restorable condition because at that point they contribute nothing but odor.

We work with both the homeowner and the insurance adjuster and keep them informed with each phase of our restoration so we can stay within the parameters of what insurance covers as well as the budget. We take time during cleaning to ensure it is correctly mitigated to avoid additional damages such as mold from water not removed or foul odors from soot.

Our technicians remove all the debris and work on extraction of water or removal of fire extinguisher residue using handheld vacuums with HEPA filtration to capture to the tiny soot particles. If the odor-causing particulates are not removed or neutralized unpleasant smoke odors remain.

Ventilation is a key component during fire loss restoration, even during the drying phase to remove any remaining moisture. After drying, any areas affected by the fire are both cleaned and disinfected.

SERVPRO technicians have many certifications in the restoration sciences, among them is Odor Control. Soot smaller than the human eye can see can cause foul odors, and is most often found embedded in porous building materials and home contents.

We have equipment ranging from machines that capture and eradicate odorous particulate at the molecular level such as Hydroxyl Generators or Ozone machines. Our technicians also have manual applications to fight fire odors such as thermal fogging that travels throughout the smoke-affected areas and neutralizes odors that have permeated deeply within porous materials. When our technicians finish with the mitigation of the fire loss, the property is left ready for rebuilding with no reminders of the fire.

Contact the professionals at SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438. Our emergency response crew is available 24/7 to make the fire loss in your home “Like it never even happened.”

Flash Flooding Risks for your Sacramento Homes

5/23/2019 (Permalink)

Don't take on water damage alone, it doesn't matter the size of the home. SERVPRO will help you.

Flooding in your home can be a very scary situation.

Flash flooding is something that many Sacramento homeowners are unfortunately familiar with and also something that can quickly and thoroughly damage vulnerable properties throughout our service area. Without the appropriate response of qualified professionals, flash flooding can not only damage your home structurally, but can also present some severe hazards at this same time. Our team can work to address the full measure of these damaging effects at any time that disaster strikes, offering the complete roster of our recovery personnel and inventory of equipment.

We know how quickly that flash flood damages can affect your Sacramento home and how fast these situations can develop and begin to spread throughout our service area. Our SERVPRO team remains prepared for these emergencies with fully stocked production trailers and service vehicles to keep us ready to roll out from our facility as soon as disaster strikes. With our growing inventory of equipment and expanding roster of qualified water restoration personnel, we can work to manage multiple situations simultaneously as is often the case with flash flooding.

As part of a Large Loss Recovery Team (LLRT), our SERVPRO professionals can pool resources and personnel to address multiple disaster sites and substantial loss incidents with efficiency and confidence. Flooding can spread quickly throughout a single-story home in the area, which can encompass the full measure of your possessions and belongings. Our Contents Department can help to protect these items by removing them from the premises to our nearby facility for concentrated cleaning, disinfection, and other restorative practices.

Single story homes also must contend with how widespread structural exposure can be. In many cases, the use of antimicrobial and strong cleaning agents can protect framework and supports, but exposed elements like drywall and carpeting often must get removed at the possibility of contaminated flash floodwater.

It is a challenge for many homeowners to contend with flash flooding in the area, but when this disaster sweeps through your one-story home, it can affect nearly your entire property in a brief period. Our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team can respond quickly to these emergencies, offering every customer a fast response in their time of need. Give us a call anytime at (916) 587-3438.

Don’t Let Water Cause Long-Term Sheetrock Damage To Your Sacramento Home

5/16/2019 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 for fast water removal from your home.

Water Removal In Sacramento Uncovers Long-Term Sheetrock Damage

The thing about water damage in a home is often there are two main types of water: visible and invisible. The visible is easily cleaned up, and the surfaces appear dry. The unseen water is moisture that migrates to areas behind baseboards, under flooring, wicked into drywall and in floor joists. All of these scenarios have the potential to bring issues such as mold, foul odors, and damage to building materials.

Our SERVPRO location received a call in the early morning hours for water removal from a Sacramento home. A supply line in an upstairs bathroom broke during the night, and the only thing that saved the situation from being worse was the family dog barking at the water pooling in the bathroom floor.

Why SERVPRO? No matter if the problem is a single room or whole house that needs cleanup from a water loss situation, we have the training and equipment to mitigate any size home disaster.
The homeowner placed towels in the floor to help absorb some of the water per our instructions, and when our technicians arrived a short time later, they began scoping the bathroom to determine where the water is located.

Using both probes and thermal imaging, we determined the floor joists were unaffected, and the concentration of water damage was around the supply line in the bathroom vanity. The state of the sheetrock told the story of a long-term undetected leak. We did a controlled demolition of the warped sheetrock so the interior of the wall cavity could be dried. We noted no signs of mold growth despite the evidence of prolonged moisture in the area.

Air movers and dehumidifiers dried the vanity area, and then our technicians cleaned and disinfected the affected areas. After confirming the wall cavity had no residual moisture, we suggested necessary repairs to fully restore the bathroom to its preloss condition and offered our Building Services.

Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 for fast water removal from your home. Our team of certified technicians can be onsite within hours of your initial call and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Use Flood Damage Mitigation Services in Sacramento to Protect Your Property

Flood Damage Cleanup for Your Sacramento Home

Out of all natural, weather-related disasters, floods are both the most common, and the costliest in the U.S., and Sacramento is no exception. Every community needs to be at least aware of the dangers of floods and be prepared for them since you never know when flooding can occur. There are also dangers of floods which do not go away once the water levels stop rising.

When your home in Sacramento has experienced flooding, you can find help when you reach out to us at SERVPRO. We are a professional remediation company, and we have the experience and training you would expect when you go to someone for help cleaning up the mess left behind from floodwaters.

One thing to be cautious of after flooding in your home is damaged appliances. Water could have damaged natural gas or propane and electrical power. Contact the proper authorities to help you determine when it is safe to turn the utilities back on.

Upon entering a flood-damaged structure, SERVPRO techs must first eliminate any safety hazards. We also ensure we wear the appropriate PPE, including full-body suits, boots, respirators, and rubber gloves. An EPA-registered disinfectant is sprayed directly on the areas affected. We may need to contain the affected areas as well if the contaminants can spread to areas unaffected.

If needed, we remove standing debris and silt, using rakes and shovels. The excess water is removed from carpeting and other kinds of flooring using extractors. We can then evaluate if your structure and belongings can be decontaminated and restored or if things much are removed and replaced. It highly depends on the porosity of the materials, the kind of contamination, and on pretest results. We keep in touch with you throughout the process so you can follow what is going on.

Minimize your contact with floodwater and evacuate your home. The water may be contaminated with sewage or other hazardous substances such as chemicals. Let us handle all of the flood damage cleanups instead, and we can have your home clean and safe again for you and your family.

Sacramento Smoke and Soot Cleanup--Done Right by SERVPRO

The SERVPRO Green Vehicle-We're Faster To Any Size Disaster for Fire Damage Cleanup in Sacramento

Fire Damage Restoration Professionals in Sacramento Describe How Smoke Issues Are Treated

If a fire breaks out in another building other than yours inside your Sacramento office complex, your unit could still get negatively affected. Problems that happen in units above, below, or next to yours can cause commercial fire damage inside your place of business. Smoke from fires in other parts of your building can get to your office by going through walls or entering through heating and ventilation systems. Any time smoke enters a structure, foul odors, and soot residues can cause problems with materials and contents. During many commercial fire damage scenarios, soot cleaning and removal is a part of what our SERVPRO professionals can do to help save the structural components and contents inside your office.
As soon as you notice smoke entering your office unit from one adjacent to it, you should call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. The first step we take when arriving at any fire damage situation in Sacramento is to figure out which of your building materials and contents we can clean and which items we have to remove and replace. We accomplish this with a test cleaning kit. Included in this kit is a large variety of chemicals that are designed to clean off different types of soot residues from the various surfaces inside your structure. We also utilize different techniques so we know whether we can clean a surface or not and what combination of chemicals and methods to use.
Once we figure out the best techniques to use on each of your affected surfaces and give you an initial estimate, we begin treating any damage that we found during the original inspection. After all of your building materials and contents get cleaned we work towards deodorizing your office. To remove burnt smells, we can implement fogging machines that disperse chemicals into the air to mimic smoke or a hydroxyl generator that chemically neutralizes foul aromas.
If you ever see or smell smoke in your office, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438, 24 hours a day.

Steps that Help Expedite Water Removal in Sacramento

Any case of water intrusion into your property whether from burst water pipes or driving rain require fast action. Removing the water faster helps prevent secondary problems such as mold development, bad odors and staining from rust or bleeding dyes in non-colorfast fabrics. Hiring a professional restoration company is a great step to help expedite water removal from your Sacramento property because they are skilled and have a variety of equipment to handle the process.

The time taken to complete the process of water removal in Sacramento depends on the amount of water in the property. More water requires extra resources or time for removal. Our SERVPRO technicians overcome this challenge by using high capacity equipment. We use submersible pumps for water over two inches deep and truck-mounted water extractors to expedite the process.

The contents in the house can hinder the removal processes. Contents like carpets absorb lots of water while couches and other furniture items can limit access for the water extraction team and equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians remove carpet allowing smooth extraction of water from the pad and floor. We also move furniture items from the affected areas to other sections of the house to offsite storage facilities to ease the process of water removal.

Even after removing all standing water, lots of moisture remains soaked in contents, building materials, and concealed spaces. Removing such moisture fast requires unique approaches. Our SERVPRO technicians create vent holes to reach water trapped in wall cavities. We also position air movers to deliver rapid airflow over wet areas and dehumidifiers to deliver warm air. Heat improves the capacity of air to hold water thus improving the drying rate. We rely on IICRC recommendations to determine the number of air movers and dehumidifiers for balanced drying.

For faster removal of water in your North Natomas, South Natomas, and Sacramento Airport homes, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento to help. You can reach us at (916) 587-3438 any time.

Why a Fast Reaction Time is Important to Mitigating Water Damage in Sacramento

3/25/2019 (Permalink)

We have the equipment to handle any size water loss event.

The Right Extraction Tools to Aid Your Sacramento Home

When water loss incidents affect your Sacramento home, you only have a small window of time before absorption and saturation from the exposed materials becomes too considerable to salvage with conventional restoration approaches. While our professionals fixate on protecting original construction materials whenever possible, this is not always the most cost-effective or efficient approach. With an immediate response to the emergency, we have a much higher success rate in preserving these saturated elements.

While we have a comprehensive approach to restoration from water extraction to full-scale reconstruction for Sacramento homes, the severity of the water damage often depends on the reaction time of the homeowner. With water loss incidents that can leave standing water throughout areas of your home, you have to react quickly to shut off the main supply of water to your home to prevent further damage and reach out to qualified IICRC-certified technicians like our SERVPRO team.

As a skilled recovery team, our technicians arrive with a production truck full of both extraction and drying equipment to mitigate water damage and loss as promptly as possible. Extraction is vital to begin right away as continued exposure of already saturated elements can begin to warp and distort materials, rendering them unable to get protected and preserved with our effective restoration approaches. Distorted flooring, drywall, or ceiling material must get removed and replaced in the reconstruction phase.

Our SERVPRO team can also work to protect exposed elements with effective drying efforts that begin with high-velocity air movers and either LGR or desiccant dehumidifiers. We also have specialized equipment for specific damages such as the injecti-dry system and drying mats to dry out damaged flooring and inaccessible areas. We have several drying units available on our production trucks, allowing us to dry out the entirety of the damaged areas, working to reduce overall moisture content as quickly as possible.

Not only can efficient extraction and drying protect the construction materials of your home, but it can reduce the possibility of secondary effects like mold growth from taking root. If you want to make water damage “Like it never even happened,” give our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team a call today at (916) 587-3438.

Don't Let a Fire Ruin Your Sacramento Business

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO can easily get rid of smoke residue and odor in your business.

Efficient Fire Odor Elimination for Your Sacramento Business

Smells are the fastest way to remind someone of an event or a place. As long as the aromas are pleasant, the memories are welcome. The acrid smell of a fire in your Sacramento business is not a remembrance to treasure. Even if our restoration technicians do their best to clean up fire residues, a smoky odor brings back the terror and the frustration of the fire that nearly closed your doors for good.

Restoration of a business in Sacramento is incomplete if fire odors linger. Employees might be triggered with flashbacks about the blaze and clients can lose confidence in your management abilities if the disaster appears partially unresolved. Inventory, documents, and other items stored on-site can carry the smell far from your headquarters, troubling to loyal customers as well as potential leads.

SERVPRO’s deodorization specialists use a broad range of strategies to eliminate the odors remaining after other fire cleanup completes. Cover-ups with distracting scents are not permanent solutions. We work through an odor-elimination protocol to get rid of the stench for all time.

All burned items must be located and removed, including searching in hidden cavities. Thorough cleaning of surfaces is then checked off, with consideration of sealing some areas to prevent the volatile compounds from vaporizing and increasing the smell. This is often an option when areas in a commercial HVAC system contain sooty residues that the airflow could move throughout your business space. On occasion, enzymatic products can help as well.

SERVPRO deodorization technicians then choose from among advanced techniques to eliminate the ability tiny airborne and settled particulates to share the smell. We might recreate the conditions of the blaze with thermal foggers, equipment that combusts deodorants at high temperatures to seek out smelly particles and neutralize them. Our experts also use ozone machines and hydroxyl generators to change the chemical composition of the remaining sooty bits, rendering them non-offensive to the nose.

If your business suffered from soot and fire, persistent odors are often not far behind. Contact SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 for our industry-leading deodorization services.

Water flows across floors and down walls, seeping into cracks and crevices. When the water is no longer seen with the naked eye, a homeowner should not rest easy. Moisture trapped in, below, and behind building materials is both common and a serious problem. We can help. 

Water removal in Sacramento might start with pumps and wanded extractors, but it does not end there. Once the majority of standing water exits, our technicians use a broad range of technologically advanced devices to detect hidden water reserves in cavities and beneath surfaces. We also determine the level of moisture infiltration in porous building materials like drywall, framing, woodwork, and ceiling tiles to help us complete the project with efficient applied structural drying.

Hardwood floors pose a water removal challenge in which SERVPRO crews train and have the experience to tackle. Water flows between the planks, saturating the subfloor. The moisture is also absorbed by the hardwood to varying degrees and becomes an issue if delaying of proven water removal methods occurs. Warping, buckling, cupping, and crowning are words with which you become familiar if your hardwood floors are saturated, each describing a way wood can disfigure when water-soaked.

Our SERVPRO crews deliver efficient water removal results using negative pressure extraction systems. Mats lie flat on the wet floor, connected to the system with hoses that suction water from all layers. This process avoids resaturation of the visible hardwood which causes damage from swelling that occurs as wood fibers absorb water. 

The same negative pressure technology pulls out moisture hidden behind and above other structural elements. SERVPRO also considers making flood cuts when we need access spaces behind walls. Our technicians remove sections of drywall near the floor, allowing heated air movers to expedite the transfer of moisture from building materials to airborne vapor our evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers. 

SERVPRO of North Sacramento locates and eliminates the hidden water that migrates after a plumbing, storm, or other disasters. Call us at (916) 587-3438 to schedule an assessment.

Why SERVPRO? For Professional Flood Damage Restoration In Sacramento Homes

We are already ahead this year for rain in Sacramento, and the flooded roads, businesses, and homes on the news show us how bad it is every night. The forecast is not exactly dry either.

Flood damage to Sacramento homes in this situation takes far more than just moving furniture off the floor and setting up fans to dry the interior. SERVPRO response teams train to quickly inspect and remove not restorable structural property, dry and clean floors, and thoroughly dry the interior so it safe and comfortable for occupation once more.

Damage in this situation results from outside storm water which contains debris, soil, and other contaminants. Before and after removing the water, our technicians spray every surface and item touched by the flood water with an antibacterial agent to eliminate the immediate health threat.

As they clear each room, team members examine the building material for damage. While drywall is excellent for interior walls, it can quickly begin to dissolve and crumble after it absorbs too much water. If panels already show these signs, SERVPRO technicians remove them since each is cheaper to replace than to expend the labor hours trying to cut away affected sections and replace or patch them.

Carpets are not restorable to a 100 percent clean condition after a flood. We remove and dispose of them immediately, especially to prevent further damage to wood flooring underneath them. Technicians use another antibacterial cleaner to scrub contaminants from wood flooring and to clean concrete surfaces as well.

As team members complete these tasks, others lower the humidity inside the home. They use fans to pull damp air from inside each home, and air movers to replace the damp air with a warm, dry alternative. To speed up the natural evaporation process, technicians also install dehumidifiers to draw water from the air; each one can remove over 20 gallons of water every 24 hours, depending on the humidity level.

If your home flooded or is still underwater, call us here at SERVPRO of North Sacramento. Our goal for every resident is to dry, clean, and restore their homes to a safe condition. To schedule an inspection, contact our office at (916) 587-3438 today.

Some Ways to Make Your Commercial Flood Damage Remediation Situation in Sacramento Easier

2/10/2019 (Permalink)

Flooding after a pipe break requires powerful water removal to help prevent mold from starting. Call our SERVPRO team to assess and remediate.

Expert Help for Flood Damaged Sacramento Businesses

Flooding is not a pleasant event for any property owner in Sacramento. The struggles felt by our local businesses when overland or internal flooding occurs in commercial spaces extend to the city at large as well. We all depend on our schools, restaurants, retail stores, workplaces, and entertainment venues to be open and ready to meet our needs. When a flood disaster strikes a commercial customer our efforts help both the business and our community.

A water supply line break in a commercial space can cause significant flood damage in Sacramento. If the event occurs outside of working hours, the quantity of water flowing into a facility can be vast and incredibly destructive. As soon as the staff at the business first notes the flooding, fast action from water removal professionals is crucial to limit the damage done.

SERVPRO crews are expert at managing large flood water removal scenarios. We arrive in vehicles stocked with pumps and truck-mounted high-efficiency extractors powered by onboard generators if the electricity at the site is temporarily unavailable. Our crews jump on the tasks at hand as soon as a preliminary assessment completes, and the water is shut off, confident in our ability to begin and complete needed water evacuation.

After the majority of the standing water exits, SERVPRO crew members use a range of devices to detect and measure moisture levels to inform us as we structure drying goals and configurations. Infrared scanners help detect water trapped in recesses and cavities behind walls, under floors and ceilings, and any other place moisture collects in a commercial physical plant.

All water must be suctioned out or otherwise released or the risk of mold growth spirals. The SERVPRO team uses a host of strategies including flood cuts, drilled holes, and top-down wand extraction to rid the spaces of all liquid water. Then we employ air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to reduce the moisture content of porous building materials by moving water out as a vapor to be captured and removed via condensation or absorption.

Water that remains unabated for 24 to 48 hours dramatically increases the probability that mold spores generate into colonies and multiply. Any other microorganisms present in a sewage backup or overland flooding during the event also have a window of opportunity to grow and spread. Because of this, SERVPRO concludes flood damage remediation with a thorough cleaning and treatment with EPA registered disinfectants to inhibit microbial infestation.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento works fast and hard to remediate commercial flood damage in the communities we serve. Contact us 24/ 7 at (916) 587-3438 to schedule an evaluation.

Don't wait to call the experts when you discover mold in your home that will only make the problem worse.

Pause The Panic And Get Help From SERVPRO For Sacramento Mold Damage

Finding mold in your Sacramento house can cause you to hit the panic button. Frequently homeowners try to manage at least preliminary control of the problem before reaching out for help. That impulse, unfortunately, can complicate the situation and even accelerate the spread of the microbial infestation. Strategies commonly believed to kill mold and prevent its return can have to precisely the opposite effect. Let our mold remediation experts take on the challenge.

Mold damage in your Sacramento home needs a thorough inspection and evaluation to determine the source and plan for repair as part of our professional response to the problem. A slow leak, incompletely dried spill, or even higher than normal interior humidity can encourage mold growth. These conditions can lie hidden, but our technicians are adept in detecting a cause as well as certified to remediate the mold damage. 

Because moisture and mold growth are so closely linked DIY diluted bleach treatments often only lighten the staining while feeding the mold, the water in the bleach solution aiding in microbial growth without the bleach reaching deeply enough to kill the mold. Instead of topical treatments alone, SERVPRO uses the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mold remediation protocol. 

We determine the extent of the mold damage and design the best containment strategy for your space. Heavy plastic sheeting augmented with air scrubber technology employing negative pressure to seal off the moldy space keeps the rest of your home free of moldy debris. The SERVPRO crew wears personal protective gear to prevent tracking contaminants through your home.  

We remove the mold from non-porous surfaces by scraping and brushing, collecting and bagging the debris for hazardous waste disposal. Porous materials infiltrated with mold hyphae (roots) receive a soda blasting treatment that loosens and removes the mold without damaging the infested materials. SERVPRO crews use HEPA filtered vacuums to remove the debris on the floors and surfaces. The air scrubber used for containment also clears airborne residue. To inhibit renewed mold growth, we sanitize the affected area with an EPA registered disinfectant. 

Give SERVPRO of North Sacramento the chance to remediate when you discover mold damage in your home. Call (916) 587-3438 to schedule the evaluation that leads to fast and effective professional mold abatement.

Moisture Invites Mold into Your Sacramento Home--SERVPRO Is a Remediation Champion!

Mold Containment Strategies for Sacramento Homes

With fungal and microbial growth occurring in a moist or damp area of your Sacramento home, you might find yourself uncertain of how to remove the colonies safely without affecting the occupants of the house or allowing the situation to get worse for structural elements. Our applied microbial remediation technicians have extensive training in identifying the full scope of the damage to your property and working quickly to prevent the situation from worsening while removal gets underway.

Containment strategies are a big component for our mold damage remediation and restoration work in your Sacramento home. These tactics help to eliminate the likelihood of mold spores spreading to new areas throughout the property while drying and removal efforts begin. Our SERVPRO professionals have state of the art equipment and effective strategies to contain the spread of colonies from our initial arrival at your address.

Among the first steps to contain the spread of mold spores throughout your home is to set up hydroxyl generators and air scrubbers within the affected areas. These machines can trap spores and particulates as small as 0.3 microns and help to reduce activity throughout this damaged region of your property.

Drying out the damaged areas of your home can also help to reduce the spread of mold spores throughout the property noticeably. Colonization requires damp surfaces and materials, so dropping the relative moisture levels throughout problematic areas of the property can reduce the possibility of spreading.

The work area where the damage has occurred also gets surrounded by a thick plastic sheeting. This sheeting is a stable line of defense against active mold spores moving throughout this environment. Nearby surfaces get sprayed with an antimicrobial solution as well to make them uninhabitable for these spores should any get beyond the installed containment area.

Removal of active mold colonies within your home can help to preserve currently unaffected structural elements from degradation and work to prevent potential health effects your family could experience once exposed to a colony. Give our SERVPRO of North Sacramento remediation specialists a call at (931) 388-4248 whenever you find mold growth occurring in your home.

Overcoming Smoke Damages in Your Sacramento Home

Smoke staining, odors, and residue can be among the hardest effects to overcome after a structure fire breaks out in your Sacramento residence.

Fire damage in Sacramento can present itself in many ways after the first responders have left your home. While you work to determine the severity of structural concerns as best and as safely as you can, many homeowners do not realize the full extent of the damages until trained professionals like our SERVPRO team arrive to perform our initial assessment of the scene. This estimation process and cataloging of damages can indicate the portions of the property most affected by the fire and where focused cleanup and smoke effects removal is necessary.

Smoke affects every home differently depending on the source of the combustion and the materials involved. Dry smoke comes from a hotter flame, which often leaves a powdery residue on surfaces and contents of the property. Wet smoke, comes from a smoldering heat that burns for much longer, and this can leave a thick residue that adheres to many surfaces and materials throughout your home and is challenging to remove. This invasive effect can infiltrate more areas of your property through the HVAC system, which also gets inspected and assessed when our professionals arrive.

Wet smoke is also known for leaving the areas with a noxious odor that requires our professional equipment to overcome. Our SERVPRO professionals can work quickly to deep clean salvageable surfaces and contents affected by the staining residue of wet smoke, and utilize equipment like our hydroxyl generators and thermal foggers to handle indoor air quality purification and deodorization.

Our certified professionals will restore your home after water damage strikes.

Sacramento's Water Removal Professionals Stress The Importance Of Using An Experienced Company

If water removal is not done correctly after a leak occurs, several types of secondary damage could take place. Any time the plumbing fails inside your Sacramento home, it is wise to seek out help from a professional and experienced company such as SERVPRO. Excessive moisture can cause many problems, several of which cannot be noticed by the untrained eye. When moisture gets inside a structure where it is not supposed to be, humidity levels can rise and cause problems in areas of your house that did not come into direct contact with any liquids.

Mold can grow if organic substances get wet or if humidity levels rise. When conducting water removal in Sacramento, our SERVPRO technicians' number one goal is to prevent secondary damage like a fungal growth. To do this, we utilize the industry's most advanced technology. Everything from the instruments we use to test the presence of moisture to the drying equipment we use is pre-tested and proven to be some of the best and most modern tools available. We also have access to specialized technology that is designed for specific situations.

SERVPRO Controls Mold Damage In Sacramento Homes

Mold needs immediate attention and our experts can be on the scene right away.

How Mold Affects Your Sacramento Home

While there might be natural disasters and other emergencies that can affect your Sacramento home in a moment, some other disasters take several days to develop. Area homeowners often overlook instances like mold growth as less severe than other situations, or merely that the condition can resolve itself without immediate and preventative actions.  It is important to understand the effect that mold can have on the property and those living in it to fully appreciate your need for professional remediation.

Several situations can lead to mold damage in your Sacramento residence, but often this can stem from flooding or water damage that had not gotten cleaned and dried to the acceptable levels. With moist and damp areas of your home, naturally occurring mold spores can land on organic materials like drywall and other components for the contents of your home to seat, spread, and thrive.

Our SERVPRO professionals often find mold damage situations that have gotten out of control, which ultimately requires material removal to successfully remove the active colonization and return the property to its original condition. A mold colony feeds on organic material it uses to host the colony, and as it spreads deeper into the material or farther out from the original point of growth, these materials become weaker and weaker to the point of structural failure or severe degradation.

You can also consider the potential health effects that can come from allowing a mold colony to spread throughout your property. Many varieties of mold create volatile organic compounds which can affect humans and pets adversely. Having our SERVPRO remediation specialists remove the colonies right away is the best method of limiting your exposure.

Understanding the risks of allowing mold growth to continue unabated in your home can help you to appreciate your need for trained and thorough professionals like ours. You can count on our SERVPRO of North Sacramento remediation specialists to arrive quickly. Give us a call anytime at (916) 587-3438.

Damage Assessment and Debris Removal for Sacramento Homes

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 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 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.

SERVPRO Works Hard to Help Sacramento Home Owners After Large Fire Damaging Events

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 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 goe 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.

Did You Know That a Fire in Your Sacramento Home Creates Different Types of Smoke Damage?

12/3/2018 (Permalink)

Look at the smoke damage on the ceiling, walls and floors. SERVPRO was able to restore this room to its pre-fire condition

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.

How SERVPRO Removes Water from Your Sacramento Home

11/28/2018 (Permalink)

A broken water pipe caused a big headache for this homeowner. SERVPRO was able to remove the water and restore the home.

Call The Professionals For Innovative Water Removal Equipment And Strategies In Sacramento

When water intrudes into your Sacramento home, waste no time before engaging the services of a professional water damage restoration company. Remediating water scenarios requires assessment and planning, including detection of the source of the water and following where the water migrates inside a property. Allowing even a small amount of water to remain exposes spaces to progressive deterioration and secondary damage like mold growth.

Water removal in your Sacramento home cannot be considered complete until IICRC trained technicians are confident no excess moisture remains. We employ the best industry practices during each water removal project accepted. Water moves from wet to dry areas, seeping through cracks and porous materials. Our crew members master the operation of moisture measuring equipment and techniques. We use the data to establish baseline wetness levels at the commencement of a job and then monitor the moisture reduction as water removal and structural drying progress.

SERVPRO team members use infrared scanners to locate water built up and hiding in wall, ceiling, and foundation cavities. Handling a water removal challenged without the specialized detection tools we use risks failure of our pledge to remove the water harming the structure and contents of your home. Once we find the water trapped behind building materials, our crews use a wide range of methods to release and extract it.

Depending on where the water lies, SERVPRO crews choose from a number of strategies. We might select drilling holes in masonry joints or baseboards, using extension wands on extractors, and even removing sections of walls by making flood cuts to access and remove the water. Opening up flooded cavity areas also permits us to follow the removal of standing water with drying protocols that reduce high humidity and moisture content structural components to normal readings.

Trying to remove water from a plumbing leak, storm, appliance malfunction, or any other emergency without the help of the SERVPRO team dramatically complicates the situation. You count on us to have the highly qualified employees and efficient and effective equipment to make a water loss “Like it never even happened.” Resolving a water removal crisis requires our professionalism and innovative tools and techniques. SERVPRO of North Sacramento is ready to remove water inside your home from any source quickly and completely. Call us at (916) 587-3438 to schedule a timely assessment and fast implementation of a plan that works.

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.

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.

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.

SERVPRO Helps Sacramento and All of California After Wildfires

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.

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

10/30/2018 (Permalink)

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)

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.

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.

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

10/21/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Yikes!! Roof Failures After a Storm Can Flood Your Home in Sacramento Causing Extensive Damage

10/1/2018 (Permalink)

Your Insurance and SERVPRO Can Cover Your Roof After a Storm Loss in Sacramento

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.

Mold Remediation in Sacramento

6/1/2018 (Permalink)

Bathroom Mold Remediation.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Residential Mold Remediation in Sacramento

Residential Mold Remediation.

It’s estimated that more than 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your home, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.

If you suspect mold, call us today at SERVPRO of North Sacramento: (916)5873438

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of North Sacramento for mold remediation services.
