Lower Lake High School smoke damage

11/14/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Lower Lake High School smoke damage We are always happy to help our local students, so they can thrive in a clean environment!

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. This fall 2017 season has been just as chaotic with the Sulphur Fire, which broke out in early October. We have been nonstop busy since, and are helping as many families and businesses as possible with smoke cleanup so business, and even classes, can resume. We are always Lake County STRONG!

Fire damage restoration work in Mendocino

9/1/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire damage restoration work in Mendocino Be grateful there is a company that can take care of this damage, and not you and your family. We are Here to Help, always!

What can be guaranteed with restoration?

Restoration means to put back something to its original state: "preloss condition," "before damage" are a few other terms that may be used. We can't guarantee to make a home brand new after a fire because we don't know the conditions of the home before the fire, but we can take away the effects of fire damage. 

Our industry-backed qualifications make us perfect for any Mendocino fire restoration project. We want to help our community, and when we have busy seasons we bring in extra workers, as well as equipment. We rise to any challenge, and work as a team. 

The details of this restoration job

This fire damage job started when candles were left unattended. A dog had knocked it over, and the house became full of smoke and fire. Thankfully, all the family members made it out safely, dog included, but the home took a few weeks to be repaired. We use various restoration techniques to get your home, as long as your belongings, back in order Contents were immediately removed so smoke damage wouldn't set in permanently, and after restoration was complete, construction began!

Sewage cleanup in the Boonville area

9/1/2017 (Permalink)

How many cleanup companies are available to go over the mountains to beautiful Boonville? Not many. In fact, we don't think there are any companies directly in the area. In a small, quaint town, there may not be a huge need for a restoration company. However, Murphy's Law states that anything that can happen, will happen. Sewage damage is no exception! So, what do you do when you live in a small down that doesn't have a restoration company down the street? YOU CALL SERVPRO. Even our other franchise is available in Sonoma County for your family and friends, in case they have a biohazard situation. 

1. We are literally around the corner

In about 30 minutes average, we can get our crew to your home. Usually, Boonville sewage cleanup is covered by insurance companies, especially if the damage is caused by someone else's home or city officials. This type of mishap happens often! Usually, sewage backups are accidents and they're always considered a biohazard. Be sure to check with your insurance company on the specifics of biohazard or sewage damage.

2. We can clean up any level of toxicity

Unless there's a public safety crisis and we have to get the CDC involved, we've never had any issues or had to say no to certain biohazard situations. Not only have we handled sewage jobs; we have also handled meth lab fires, heroin needles, rat infestations, hospital sanitization, dead animals (the most upsetting one we've done involved snakes that died due to a power outage in their cages).

Whatever you think we can't handle, we have probably already done. Give us a call with your latest challenge! 707-462-3848 is the call for your direct, 24/7 emergency service company!

Water Damage Home repair work in Ukiah We have had jobs larger than this one that require over 50 pieces of drying equipment!

Ukiah home repair may be needed for any reason. Perhaps a tree fell on your house, a water pipe broke, or you began reconstruction in your bathroom and found black mold. Maybe someone passed away in their home and you are trying to get someone to remove, clean, or sanitize the area. Trying to find someone to fix your house as it was before the damage is almost impossible-until you call SERVPRO. 

Our previous home repair projects

This home pictured has quite a story! A major water damage had affected this entire home, and we worked on it for months. During this time, the homeowner had been on vacation and was out of the country. The neighbors called them, and then they called us (what great neighbors), and we were able to work out everything over the phone. We can work around your schedule, and any projects you have happening, so the restoration side of things can get handled asap. These types of projects are essential when water damage happens, and cannot be ignored. Check out some other tips recommended when you find water damage. 

Previous home issues

If you find your home is in constant need of repair, there may be an existing issue that SERVPRO can evaluate. Give us a call, 462-3848, and we can inspect your home for mold, water, or infestation damage. Sometimes, the biggest problems are the ones you can't see!

Mold removal in Fort Bragg

Mold Remediation Mold removal in Fort Bragg We do what's necessary to eradicate as much mold as possible.

Mold Removal vs Mold Remediation

The main difference between the two phrases is one means "absolute", and the other means essentially "to healthy consumption." A company that states they can completely remove mold is not being honest, or representing their company properly. No company, not even SERVPRO of Mendocino County, can completely perform Fort Bragg mold removal.  We wouldn't want to give anyone the wrong impression of the types of services we provide. But, we want to help you as much as possible if you do have mold. Check out this page for more information on our mold cleanup process.

What we can do to help

We can come to your home and perform an evaluation, at your convenience. We can provide you with a scope of all the work that needs to be completed to get your home into healthy shape. We can also provide an estimate to you and/or your insurance company. We don't recommend not getting work done due to a cost; you have homeowners insurance for a reason, and can be placed on a payment plan if homeowners insurance won't cover the loss. 

Give us a call at 462-3848 for more information or to speak with a Project Manager!

Of course, these are sensitive situations.

They are difficult to digest, but someone needs to do them.

Cleaning up mold in Ukiah homes

7/19/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Cleaning up mold in Ukiah homes One cannot simply wipe down mold that is already IN the wall, due to too much moisture.

Why wouldn't you get mold removed from your home?

We receive a lot of calls regarding mold damage. However, often the homeowners don't want to deal with getting mold cleaned up and removed because of simply the cost. We say simply because everything is just going to go uphill if you leave the mold where it is, including cost! It will spread, which will require more effort down the road to clean, and possibly partial deconstruction of your house to completely eradicate the mold...which could have been removed the first time. 

Getting it done the first time

Just like ripping off a band aid, you just need to buckle down, get to business, and pick up the phone. Make time to get the business done, and we will take care of the rest. We have certified mold cleanup technicians and project managers, all the equipment that is IICRC cleared, and special protective gear to keep the mold from spreading. 

It sounds very technical, but we've been doing this sort of work for a long time. We work more directly with mold within a few months than a homeowner will encounter in a lifetime!

County commercial building floods at night!

Commercial County commercial building floods at night! Leo, one of our Project Managers, is checking the moisture level after equipment has been running for a couple of days.

We weren't shocked when we received the phone call; instead, we were prepared. Our vans were packed, cell phones were charged, and we were on the road...well, we went right down the street, but what matters is we made it!
The Mendocino County Public Library had a pipe break, and most of the library had to be dried out, and water had to be extracted. We would hate to see it close down for several days; libraries are so important to have in our communities. We worked swift and in an organized fashion in order to get as much done as fast as possible.
Do you know what you would do if the building, business, or company you managed all of a sudden had a malfunction such as the library did? They contacted us right away; you should too.
We are here for you, 24/7!
462-3848 is our 24 hour number; we are your emergency service company for fire, water, and biohazard damage!
