Water damage updates

We frequently post weather updates, water damage tips and tricks, and photos of people from the community on our Facebook page. Please check it out and if you have Facebook, like our page so you can get regular updates. We also update safety information, and flood warnings. 

Nasty weather on the coast

Although the weather has been pretty rainy this winter and spring, we've had nice weather for the past week. This may all of a sudden stop, without warning. You may start getting a leak in your roof! Fort Bragg leaky roof repair is one of the many coastal calls we get. Often, homeowners notice mold in their home, even if they didn't notice any previous leaks. Sometimes, the leaks can dry due to nice weather. However, even if you fix the roof, you may have not been able to reverse the water damage. 

Storm damage in Mendocino County

3/19/2018 (Permalink)

We have felt another storm rage happening the past several weeks. Although the talk about El Nino had been going on for months a couple years ago many people are not prepared. With the Mendocino Lake Complex fire, recovery, school starting, holidays and work, storm damage prevention is probably on the bottom of everyone's list. 

Mendocino County storm damage preparation

What can you do? First thing to do is clear any gutters. Heavy gutters, or heavy flat roofs due to leaves, water, and debris could lead to water damage. High winds can also break windows and allow water to come into your home, branches can fall, etcetera. SERVPRO of Mendocino County is part of the Mendocino County storm damage cleanup services. We are anticipating heavy rains, winds, and calls. We can handle it all for you, so it's another burden off your shoulders. 

Flood damage in parts of Ukiah

Ukiah flood damage becomes extreme-roof leaks, pipe breaks and more.

Homes in Ukiah were assisted by SERVPRO of Mendocino County during the past week. Many homes had flood damage, roof leaks, and fallen ceilings due to water coming in and crawling up the walls. Some of the roofs were flat and had no drainage, which means the water only has one place to go: inside. Unfortunately, many insured homeowners don't carry flood insurance because it's not a common occurrence. There are ways to protect your home and belongings from a flood:

  • Clear gutters, drains and downspouts.
  • Move furniture, rugs, electronics and other belongings to upper floors, or at least raise them off a ground floor.
  • Shut off electricity at the breaker panel.
  • Elevate major appliances onto concrete blocks if they're potentially in harm's way from flooding.

2.) SERVPRO of Mendocino County offers guaranteed, thorough work.

We strive to completely dry out your home and belongings, clean and deodorize the areas affected, remain professional at your home, and deal with any complications that happen along the way.

3.) We are friendly, trained, and skilled at dealing with damage and restoring your home. 

We have IICRC certifications, and conduct regular customer service training as well as keeping track of paperwork for your insurance company.

Mold Remediation Mold removal in the Fort Bragg area Extreme mold exposure over a long period of time leads to this type of mess.

Coastal conditions make for excellent mold growth-call 462-3848, 24 hours a day 7 days a week for mold removal

Mold growth is only positive in the mold community! Black mold is being discovered all over Fort Bragg due to the idea conditions present in which mold can grow. Professionals should only handle black mold removal. SERVPRO of Mendocino County can remove black mold by using the proper techniques, equipment, and protocols.

Commercial cleanup work in Ukiah-even on the holidays!

12/29/2017 (Permalink)

We've had a lot of water losses and Ukiah commercial cleaning needs recently. This is due partly to faulty roofing, as well as smoke damage from the recent wildfires . A lot of ceilings are collapsing due to the weight of water, lack of drainage, or poorly placed shingles. 

Preventing water damage in commercial buildings

Having sudden damage, especially during business hours, can be very taxing. You may not lose your customers, but you could lose business for at least a couple weeks (or even months) if you don't get a handle on the loss. You wouldn't want any customer injuries while repairs are being made! Some businesses opt for us to work during non-business hours, or on the weekend depending on the type of business. We've had offices all of a sudden flood, or ceilings fall due to water damage. 

Is there a commercial job we can't handle?

Historically, no. We've had a few major government buildings/properties and schools in Mendocino County experience natural and man made floods, as well as businesses down the road. We have been on site within a few hours, with our crew ready to go. We also contacted other SERVPRO franchises to assist. That's the benefit of working with SERVPRO; you have access to dozens of workers on short notice if necessary!
