Does your corona home have a Mold problem?

5/6/2019 (Permalink)

Have you recently discovered mold?

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Corona Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

8/22/2018 (Permalink)

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

Have Questions about Basement Flooding?

Each Fire Damage is Different

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Vandalism at Local 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)

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!

Water Damage at a Shoe Store

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Corona's quick service saves the majority of the shoe store inventory.

This commercial building is a shoe store that sustained water damage due to a main water line located outside of the building that burst and flooded the inside of the building. 

In order to minimize damages, SERVPRO of Corona arrived quickly to the loss site and began services almost immediately. Due to the amount of water, our technicians had to extract water from the floors using a water extractor. Even though the technicians were able to remove a lot of the standing water, the vinyl tiles had already begun to delaminate from the floor. Due to this, this type of flooring needed to be removed in order to dry the floor beneath. The owners of this shoe store were relieved we were able to salvage the majority of their inventory.

What NOT to Do (Fire & Smoke Damage)

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

This home sustained fire and smoke damage due to an electrical explosion in the attic.

In our previous post, we provide suggestions on what to do until SERVPRO of Corona can arrive to assess fire and smoke damage. Now we would like to offer some tips on what NOT TO DO in the unfortunate event of a fire. 

DON'T: 

  1. Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO of Buena Park.
  2. Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting SERVPRO of Buena Park.
  3. Attempt to clean any electrical appliances (TV sets, radios, etc.) that may have been close to fire, heat, or water without first consulting an authorized repair service.
  4. Consume any food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat, or water. (They may be contaminated.)
  5. Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may be wet or damaged and cause electrical shock, and air movement may create secondary damage. 
  6. Send garments to the dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set in smoke odor.

Water Damage Leads to Mold Growth When Left Untreated

5/17/2018 (Permalink)

Homeowners were out of town when this water damage happened. Since it was left untreated, mold began to grow.

Homeowners were out of town when this water damage occurred. Unfortunately, due to nobody being in the home, the water damage went untreated for six days. During this time, water saturated the walls, flooring, and cabinets throughout the downstairs area of the home. SERVPRO of Corona was called to assess the water damage. Upon arrival, SERVPRO of Corona crew noticed there was about 2-3 inches of standing water and microbial growth on the walls. The first thing the crew did was moving contents and furniture to an unaffected area of the home in attempts to salvage them. The next step was to extract the water using a truck mount extractor. Thirdly, the homeowners' items were packed and moved into another area of the home so that cabinets and furniture could be removed. Fourth step was the removal of cabinets, drywall, and floors as they were heavily affected by the water damage. (Notice the microbial growth on the walls) The final step was mold remediation. With the help of a hygienist, the home mold spores in the home were reduced to where it is now safe to live in the home. Just a friendly reminder to have a family member, friend and or neighbor keep an eye on your home when you are out of town just in case this happens in your home!

Water Damage Causes Extensive Mold Growth

8/4/2017 (Permalink)

Water damage left untreated for a few days causes mold growth.

When water damage is not reported when it needs to be reported, mold is definitely going to grow in the affected areas as it did in the pictures above. The customer left for vacation and when he came back, most of the downstairs area was affected and had mold growth. Please take a second to notice the height that mold reached in just a few days that the water damage was not treated.  SERVPRO of Corona will, at this point, set up a plan to mitigate the mold.

Unfortunately, the homeowner was not aware of the water damage happening in his home. When going away for an extended period of time, we suggest the homeowner have someone they trust to check on the home to prevent a mold disaster such as this one.

Does Your Corona Home Have A Mold Problem?

7/3/2017 (Permalink)

Mold spores found in a hall closet of a home as a result of water damage.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Summer Season in California at risk for larger, aggressive fires.

Storms occur with little warning and can be especially devastating, so you’ll need the company that you can trust to rise to the occasion. Regardless of the type of storm, SERVPRO of Corona can handle any size disaster. During catastrophic storms and major events, our Disaster Recovery Team can respond quickly with additional resources.

  • Flooding caused by heavy rains
  • Hurricanes and tidal surges
  • Tornadoes and wind damage
  • Ice and snow storms

This Summer season in California is at high risk for fires due to the vast amount of crops that grew during the record making rains this past winter. These crops wither rapidly during the summer and fall seasons which result in larger and more aggressive fires. 

Vandalism at a 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 clean up 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. 

If your home or business has been vandalized and proper clean up is needed, call SERVPRO of Corona. (951) 278-2595 

Each Fire is Different

6/27/2017 (Permalink)

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.

Water Damage at a Shoe Store

6/19/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Corona's quick service saves the majority of the shoe store inventory.

This commercial building is a shoe store that sustained water damage due to a main water line located outside of the building that burst and flooded the inside of the building. 

In order to minimize damages, SERVPRO of Corona arrived quickly to the loss site and began services almost immediately. Due to the amount of water, our technicians had to extract water from the floors using a water extractor. Even though the technicians were able to remove a lot of the standing water, the vinyl tiles had already begun to delaminate from the floor. Due to this, this type of flooring needed to be removed in order to dry the floor beneath. The owners of this shoe store were relieved we were able to salvage the majority of their inventory.

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

6/12/2017 (Permalink)

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!

This home sustained fire and smoke damage due to an electrical explosion in the attic.

In our previous post, we provide suggestions on what to do until SERVPRO of Corona can arrive to assess fire and smoke damage. Now we would like to offer some tips on what NOT TO DO in the unfortunate event of a fire. 

DON'T: 

1. Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO of Buena Park.

2. Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting SERVPRO of Buena Park.

3. Attempt to clean any electrical appliances (TV sets, radios, etc.) that may have been close to fire, heat, or water without first consulting an authorized repair service.

4. Consume any food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat, or water. (They may be contaminated.)

5. Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may be wet or damaged and cause electrical shock, and air movement may create secondary damage.

Standing Water in Home Causes Mold Growth

4/26/2017 (Permalink)

Homeowners were out of town when this water damage occurred. Unfortunately, due to nobody being in the home, the water damage went untreated for six days. During this time, water saturated the walls, flooring, and cabinets throughout the downstairs area of the home. SERVPRO of Corona was called to assess the water damage. Upon arrival, SERVPRO of Corona crew noticed there was about 2-3 inches of standing water and microbial growth on the walls. The first thing the crew did was moving contents and furniture to an unaffected area of the home in attempts to salvage them. The next step was to extract the water using a truck mount extractor. Thirdly, the homeowners' items were packed and moved into another area of the home so that cabinets and furniture could be removed. Fourth step was the removal of cabinets, drywall, and floors as they were heavily affected by the water damage. (Notice the microbial growth on the walls) The final step was mold remediation. With the help of a hygienist, the home mold spores in the home were reduced to where it is now safe to live in the home. Just a friendly reminder to have a family member, friend and or neighbor keep an eye on your home when you are out of town just in case this happens in your home!

Corona Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall.

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

Does Your Corona Home Have A Mold Problem?

5/9/2016 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

SERVPRO's team at the CORONA Relay for Life

SERVPRO of Buena Park and Corona at the Corona Relay for Life

Last year, in response to a Cancer diagnosis, Servpro of Corona and Mike Britton teamed up to create team SERVPRO and joined the American Cancer Society in their Relay for Life Event. Team SERVPRO raised a little under $3,000.00 within the few months the team was formed. Our team walked all day and night in support of our friends, family, and our team member Mike Britton. Although we did not reach our goal last year, each lap we walked represented a positive thought, energy, or prayer -if you will- to be sent Mike’s way: this in itself was well worth it.

This year, On Saturday, May 18th at Santana Park in Corona, Ca. team SERVPRO (along side of Mike B.) will be walking this event again. This year; however, we have another goal. Our goal is for team Servpro to really shine and live up to the name of Super Heroes. We are asking our friends to help us raise money for the Cancer Society.
