SERVPRO knows how to get the restoration process started right away, in a way that keeps you informed. First, technicians will be on site as soon as we are notified about the damage. Second, we can let you know the scope of the work needed to be completed to get your home back into preloss condition. Then, a board up or tarp up service will be provided, if needed.

While the holidays are a fun time of the year for most, often we get phone calls on Christmas about water damage, flood damage, and wind damage on roofs that allow water to sink into your home. No one wants that, but who wants to deal with it on Christmas? With all the major disasters that have been occurring-mud slides, hurricanes, wildfires-we need to be on the lookout for what could happen in our community. Preparedness is key because it can make a potentially difficult, devastating situation more bearable and easier to maintain.

Mold removal in the Lucerne community

1/11/2018 (Permalink)

No one can "remove" mold completely

Any company that tells you THEY can completely remove mold is not being an honest company. The truth is, mold cannot be completely removed because it's an organic substance that is found everywhere in our atmosphere. It's in the air, ground, and water. It lives in damp, dimly lit areas and can vary in poison levels. The spores are so small, they can only be seen clearly under a microscope. Do you really think a person or company could completely REMOVE mold that is so microscopic?

What should a restoration company be able to do for you?

Since we know mold is all around us, we know we can actually survive with it. For the typical human being, complete removal of mold isn't necessary or possible. Performing Lucerne mold removal services means mitigation at its absolute best by the finest technicians! Getting it out of the walls, cleaning the air, and deodorizing the rooms where the mold grew are just a few of the things our team can handle. We've handled everything from abandoned homes to single bedrooms, and BEYOND!

Upper Lake water damage

12/26/2017 (Permalink)

We had a customer discover water damage after removing a dishwasher. They had no idea for how long water damage had sat there on their NEW FLOOR, but they were eager to get it fixed.

Water damage repair process

Repairs can include drying, pulling up materials, or moving appliances in the kitchen to make sure damage didn't spread elsewhere. Moisture meters are used throughout the restoration and repair process to make sure the area is getting dry, or not getting any wetter. We may also recommend or require reconstruction of the room(s) affected due to heavy or extensive damage. However, no matter how heavy or extensive water damage has affected your home, we will see to the very end that your home is fixed.

Upper Lake water damage services

We service Upper Lake water damage problems on a regular basis. We have our Lake County crew on standby Monday through Friday, when damage typically happens or is found. When people are gone for the weekend and come home to a mess, we are more than willing to help with those catastrophes. Or, if you left on the sink due to a heated argument with a telemarketer, we can help with those messes too!

Lakeport mold remediation

Mold Remediation Lakeport mold remediation This mold was discovered during a remodel of a home.

We can't determine whether there is mold in your home if it isn't visible.

However, we can recommend Lakeport mold cleanup, no problem! Every home deserves to be a healthy home, we agree 100%. Plus, indoor air quality can be evaluated on a regular basis to make sure your home is in proper living condition. Mold is present in the air constantly, although not always in a heavy concentration. When mold is present in your home, it can cause a lot of structural damage and weakness, depending on the amount.

What causes mold anyways?

Mold is often caused by water damage that hasn't been property repaired, an organic substance that's left behind and not properly disposed, or even a little bit of moisture. Improperly insulated windows is a big problem in our area. We recommend double pane windows all the way! This type of window keeps out moisture and prevents it from building up inside your home.

Storm damage in Hidden Valley Lake-SERVPRO advice

12/26/2017 (Permalink)

We haven't had any severe winter rains or snow, but anything is possible and being prepared isn't a bad idea. Storm damage is any damage to your home that happens due to a storm; water damage, flood damage, fire damage, and wind damage. Even mold damage can occur after a storm, especially after a flood in your home. 

Insurance coverage after a storm

Depending on the circumstances surrounding water damage in your home, your homeowners insurance may not cover it. Insurance companies won't cover floods due to a storm unless you specifically purchase flood insurance. Roof leaks may not be covered if it's been determined that the homeowners were neglectful in getting their roof fixed, or let the gutter get too full.

Reevaluating your homeowners insurance during the winter and spring seasons is highly recommended by us at SERVPRO of Lake County. Insurance companies can be a true blessing, and get you through some hard times. Belongings affected by storm damaged can be costly, so see what your insurance company can offer you. 

Our procedure from the first phone call

As soon as you call us and need help with emergency storm damage, we will make sure a Project Manager gives you a call in the same hour. After 4 hours, we will be on site and ready to start work. After 8 hours, we can give you an entire scope of all the work that we will be completing. We will also keep in contact with you and your insurance company to make sure all three parties are on the same page. This strategy will save you from a headache, as well as money, in the long run. 

We do what we can to make sure you get the best service possible. We are always looking to improve our services so we can accommodate your needs. The needs of our community are constantly changing, and we keep up with the pace!

Lower Lake High School smoke damage

12/15/2017 (Permalink)

We did some work after the results of the Clayton Fire during this summer of 2016. Many buildings, mostly commercial, were affected. We called on all three of our franchises (Lake, Mendocino, Sonoma NE) to work together so the students could start school on time.

We also worked with insurance adjusters, water and smoke damaged homes, and training new temporary employees. This summer kept us busy with mostly water and fire damage-the score was even, but we never like to see entire communities up in flames. The Lower Lake High School was very happy to have us on board and even thanked us, along with other businesses, because we offered them so much support.

We care deeply about our communities, and want them to thrive. We are Lake County STRONG!
