The Storm in Anaheim Hills

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.

The thought of storms never really worries us here in California, but sometimes if we don’t properly repair or keep up then we can be blind-sided by the natural disasters of this earth. Our team was called out to Yorba Linda to inspect a house who was just covered by rain.

As we arrived on scene, we found that there was damage to the inner part of their restroom which seemed to take on a lot of water underneath. Luckily, we got there on time and we were able to help sustain any critical damage. Sometimes if it goes untreated the damage caused can be so sever that it won’t be able to be replaced without complete demolition and reconstruction.

Storms can cause massive damage, but our SERVPRO team understands that and knows that we can handle any job thrown our way. Give us a call today if you have suffered from storm damage, or any damage that you may need assistance on.

Minor storm damage can also take place as well, especially if you live in a place where maybe heavy rain isn’t something you’re used to than it could cause problems. This resident living in Brea had to deal with a similar problem explained here. They were not ready for a sudden rainstorm and their house was not prepared at all.

Their home was already under a lot of stress and with this sudden storm, it didn’t help when it can to the old structure as well. With the old piping under the restroom, the new water stress levels made it burst and cause damage to the structure of the restroom. With caution, our team entered the site and immediately blocked off the entry ways to help contain any possible air that was harmful to people.

Although the damage was quick, our SERVPRO team wanted to play it safe in order to and keep everyone in the house and our team safe from any type of harmful chemicals in the air.

A flooded Island with Water

Island from Beginning to End 1 the island before work 2 island during work showing damage 3 the end result of the removal

This home in Brea had their island in the home suffer from major water damage. It came from down below and went up to the walls. Our team was able to contain the problem within just the island to help reduce the homeowners costs to a minimum.

We had to completely tear out the whole island to have it replaced by a brand new one. The reason being was that our SERVPRO team found that trying to save the island would only cause further damages in the future, it would cause defects to the structure which could have imposed future hazards if left in that condition.

We had to completely remove all parts from the top of the island and all the way to the bottom of the concrete flooring. Our team is prepared for any water damage that may come into a home and we practice safety and know exactly how to deal with each problem. The water was luckily stopped fast enough to reduce all damage which in turn led us to be able to get in and out fast.

Our clients had an unfortunate leak in their home that led to the destruction of the inside of their wall which was infected with mold. The wall slabs were then sectioned off from the rest of the home to help reduce any type of harmful chemicals that may try to leak out.

We had to completely treat and excavate all the damaged material to ensure that it was a healthy environment to live in, but to also stop the spread of anything else at the source. Our SERVPRO team had to properly get rid of all the damaged area to keep the clients home safe upon return.

Once we dry the area and get rid of all the mold, we then take our very own chemicals and saturate all the effected areas to not only completely kill the harmful bacteria, but to also help prevent any future growth that may try to occur.
