Flood damage in Clearlake home

Storm Damage Flood damage in Clearlake home We are always prepared to help you with damage to your home, no matter what time of day!

Flood damage 

Even if you don't live in a zone that experiences a lot of flooding, this year may prove that flooding can happen anywhere as long as there is enough water. Do you want to wait to find out if your home will flood?

What can you do to avoid flood damage?

Contact your local fire station to find out about sand bag filling stations would be a first step. If you're able, modify the furnace and water heater so they sit higher off the ground. Be sure to clean your gutters, drains, and downspouts so water and debris doesn't build up heavy on the roof. 

But, what if my home floods anyways?

Preparation doesn't ensure a disaster won't occur, but it sure can prevent a whole lot of disaster. If Clearlake flood damage happens despite your efforts, give SERVPRO of Lake County a call. We have been all over Lake County this year helping get wildfire victims back inside their homes. We are prepared for this winter/spring season to hit, and stay for a while.

We are here for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We hope you won't need our services-same as hospitals, fire departments, and police officers-but the devastation would be great if we weren't here to help you get back on track.

Mold Remediation Attic mold in Kelseyville due to poor circulation Don't even TRY doing this kind of cleanup yourself, you'll waste your time and energy, and end up calling SERVPRO anyways!

Owning a home is a lot of responsibility

There is a lot to do when preparing to buy a home. You have to go through the inspection process, get your credit report, sign a bunch of documents, get approved for a loan, and then there's the unpacking! We bet you didn't sign up to deal with recurring mold in your attic due to poor fan circulation and moisture buildup. NEITHER DID WE, but we are still happy to help when there is a problem!

Attic moisture builds up

This home in Kelseyville accumulated mold over the course of two years, and the homeowners realized the moisture from the bathrooms and laundry area weren't being filtered to the outside of the home. After careful evaluation, they decided to have SERVPRO deal with the cleanup of the exposed areas in the attic. 

We were there to inspect, and then we set up equipment for two days, and used a special product on the exposed wood to kill the mold spores that are affecting this structure. The last thing you want is the structure of your home compromised, especially after going through all the trouble to own it!

Remain in a panic? Become an emotional mess? These are normal reactions to a devastating experience, one that hopefully you'll never have to endure. However, if you do experience a fire, we can help you through the debris, the panic, and mess so you can put the pieces back together.

What is the process of fire restoration?

After the fire is out, what is the next step? Not only is your home in shambles due to the flames, but perhaps it's been torn apart in some areas and flooded in others due to emergency response efforts. 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. Water removal would be the next step, due to the destructive behavior water exhibits when left to travel all over your home. Then, smoke and soot removal would take place. Lastly, the cleaning, repair, and restoration of your home and belongings would be the finishing touches on your home, which will look better than before the fire!

Kelseyville storm damage

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.  

SERVPRO, your 24 hour clean up company!

We always remain on call, even during the weekends and holidays and happy hour.

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!
