Our clients from Anaheim Hills had to deal with a water damage problem that overwhelmed their guest room. When we arrived on scene we noticed that the base boards were too far damaged for any type of saving so we had to completely remove all the wood.

Once we removed the damaged would we began to dry the foundational wood to help ensure its normal strength as well as get rid of any possible mold damage that may have tried to grow in the future. When it comes to water damage it is always good to make sure that all wood or damaged area is completely cleaned out or it could cause a lot of future damage.

If you think you may have water damage within the walls or any other area of your home then give us a call so we can take care of you and your family.

Storm Leak Damage 1 testing the floor damage, 2 pulling up the rug, 3 the overall damage before removal

A storm can come and go in a hurry, and our clients unfortunately had to deal with a flash flood in Lake Forrest. Luckily enough the storm didn’t cause too much damage inside but the unfortunate thing was that it did flood the pipes underneath the house and cause some minor but deep flooding.

In the photo you see, we had to lift up the carpet and get down to the bottom of the flooring to dry out the area. We wanted to do so to ensure that no mold growth would take place and had to place special chemicals on the area to keep it clean.

Although the family did have to replace their family rug, they were thankful that we came out in time because if not, the pipes underneath would have burst had we not called the local plumbers to help us on the job. Although we don’t do plumbing we will do anything to help us get the job done for you and your family.

The clients in Los Angeles unfortunately had a small house fire that took out their garage from the ground up. Luckily nobody was hurt but they did lose a lot of family memories. Once our team arrived onsite the fire department had already finished their job and put out the fire and all embers.

We specialize in the removal of all items burnt in the effected area and make sure that there is nothing left over that could be harmful to the family or the environment. As you see, we had to clear out all of the debris that was left from the fire. We are not sure how the fire started but as long as nobody was hurt that is all that matters.

Although there was a major damage done, our team took their time in making sure that every piece of the damage was taken care of. We were able to get up close and personal with the PPE suites we have in our warehouse. This helps us ensure that we are kept safe and properly clean the area.

This kitchen had an unfortunate leak that quickly spread throughout the home and led to an excavation of the walls and some lower structure to properly treat the home. We deal with any type of problem and love to get inside the walls to ensure that we properly dry the home, but we also prevent any type of mold growth in the future.

We first had to remove the lower parts of the walls and all the cabinet space under the sink since that was most affected. Once we get to the root of the affected area we begin to treat it with dehumidifiers and in house chemicals to prevent any growth.

Dried up Storm Damage 1 drying the cabinets before removal, 2 after removal of cabinets, 3 internal drying of damaged area

Anaheim Hills is a place where we don’t assume that storms will come through and sweep through an area, but believe it or not it still happens. When a house is not properly prepared for such rain, or even if it comes after a long drought it can cause some serious damage.

Our client gave our office a call because they had their worst fear come through. The storm overcame their home and began to leak from the roof into the walls of their home. Luckily, our SERVPRO team is ready to tackle this job and easily assessed and took care of the job quickly.

To help prevent any rotting wood, we opened up the bottom panel of the walls and directly dried the structure of the home to help it regain its original state. We also do this to prevent any damp areas producing mold growth which can cause health effects if left untreated.

Storms can cause a heap of damage, if you suspect any type of weather damage in your home give us a call so we can assess any possible problem.

The Mold Has got to Go 1 shows the original area of damage, 2 the drying process and cleaning the air, 3 removal of wall and internal drying

This mold problem slowly occurred in a resident’s home in Yorba Linda. A pipe was slowly leaking and caused an area to start growing mold within the affected area. This mold was hard to detect by the resident only because this small leak took time to cause problems.

Once our SERVPRO team got onsite we immediately closed off the area effected and began working in our PPE gear to keep us safe as well as the residents. The team gers to the bottom of the problem by excavating the entire area and disinfecting the wood with our very own chemical. Before doing any type of treatment to the wood, we use our dehumidifiers to dry out any left-over water and then treat the wood with a specialized chemical that not only kills the area but prevents the area from any type of growth. SERVPRO prides in being able to complete a project with keeping the residents and entire team safe from harm.

Mold can be a harmful issue that could cause risks in the workplace. If you didn’t know, our SERVPRO team is equipped and ready to take on any mold or other harmful bacteria. For example, this company who worked in a small office space first gave us a call for possible water leak.

When we arrived on scene we noticed that there was internal damage to the structure and led us to figure out that there was more to the problem than the eye could see. In the break room of their office there had been some minor leaking that took place which ultimately led to the moldy space.

Luckily we were prepared and began working on the remediation of this as soon as we got back on sight. These jobs can be stressful because it could raise questions about the health of the environment but there’s no need to worry because our SERVPRO team are experts at removing such harmful areas.
