Water Damage Corona Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration! The water damage seen here is coming from an overhead pipe that leaked into a basement.

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Corona basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Each Fire Damage is Different

Fire Damage Each Fire Damage is Different Each fire is different, contact SERVPRO of Corona for proper cleanup!

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Corona will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Commercial Vandalism at Local Church SERVPRO of Corona technician cleaning up dust and debris from altar at a Church.

SERVPRO of Corona not only provides fire and water damage restoration. Our services extend to vandalism clean ups as well. 

This unfortunate occurrence was due to vandalism. SERVPRO of Corona was contacted for the cleanup of extinguisher dust and other debris. Our technicians quickly started to HEPA vacuum all affected areas so that the dust would not penetrate further into furniture, walls, and floors.  Negative air machines were then placed to improve the air quality inside the facility. In the end, it was like the vandalism "Never Even Happened". The Pastor of this Church was relieved we were able to clean up the Church quickly so that he may open his church once again.

What To Do Until Help Arrives (Fire & Smoke Loss)

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage What To Do Until Help Arrives (Fire & Smoke Loss) This home sustained fire, smoke, and soot damage from a lit candle that fell onto the floor.

In the event of a fire or smoke loss in your home, here are some tips you can follow to minimize damage: 

  1. Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpet. 
  2. Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls, and woodwork.
  3. Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpet traffic areas. 
  4. If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open to help prevent odor.  
  5. Wipe soot from chrome on kitchen and bathroom faucets, trim, and appliances, then protect these surfaces with a light coating of lubricant.  
  6. If heat is off during winter, pour RV antifreeze in sinks, toilet bowls, holding tanks, and tubs to avoid freezing pipes and fixtures.  
  7. Wash both sides of leaves on houseplants. 
  8. Change HVAC filter, but leave the system off until a trained professional can check the system.
  9. Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system. 

Final and easiest Tip: 

Call SERVPRO of Corona at (951) 278-2595 to take care of the rest!
