Storms Can and Will Cause a lot of Damage in Your Home.

7/26/2021 (Permalink)

Storm disaster trailer. We have a storm disaster team that deploys to wherever needs our assistance in the US.

It could be a disaster if a home does not have a good drain system when storm rains will not let up. The water will continue to collect until it's pushing on your door searching for any sign of a crack to get inside. If the house is unoccupied for the duration of the storm the water can continue to leak in. A lot of times when water comes from the outside, it becomes dirty. The water can flow small particles of dirt into the crack under the door. Another example of contaminated water is sewage such as a toilet overflowing.

Here are some tips when dealing with contaminated water:

  • Don't spread contaminated water by walking unnecessarily on damaged or wet areas. 
  • Don't turn on the HVAC system if there is a possibility of spreading contaminated air.
  • Don't use household fans to dry the structure and spread contaminants.
  • Avoid all contact with sewage and items contaminated by it.
  • Wash hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items.

Doom & Gloom Weather

Warehouse full of equipment We have every piece of equipment needed to get homes and properties back to working conditions.

Southern California is not known for rainy weather but when it does rain for the few days out of the year, it comes in heavy! We are blessed to live in a beautiful place where the sun is always shining but because of that we do not really prepare ourselves and our properties for the potential damage that a rainstorm can bring. Storms show us the faulty roof tiles, and potential bad workmanship of the home in general. Sadly the only way to know these faults exist is for a rain water leak to show you. As long as SERVPRO of Escondido gets out there as soon as possible to address the issue early on, there will be less damage to the home and be able to get the home back to working condition quickly. 

If you have a leak or water damage in your home or business, call us today for an inspection! (760)758-3454

A muddy mess

6/25/2019 (Permalink)

101 freeway.

As SERVPRO of N. Vista/ San Marcos was finishing up work for the Ventura fire, the heavy rains hit. The rains in Santa Barbara were so heavy that it caused mud slides. All the burned, loose shrubs on land were easily being pushed down hills along with dirt. The homes that had survived the fire were now being taken out by mud slides. Just as we thought the crisis was over. Of course our crew members decided to stay longer to help. The only problem was the mud slides had shut down main and side roads. Our team was stuck in the hotel while the streets were being shut down left and right. All we could do was wait. Finally the storm stopped and the damage was done. Houses that we were working on were now gone. It was a very sad time for so many people, but SERVPRO of Escondido did not give up. Fire, Rain and mud cannot stop us. We found ways around the roads that were shut down and began work immediately. It is amazing to see how people come together during times of need. Our additional crew members drove 7+ hours to get to Santa Barbara, taking back routes and windy roads. It has been long working days for our crews that are up north, some are still there. We are so thankful here at SERVPRO of Escondido to have such hard working team members on our side!

Home is where you make it.

Although it is difficult to try and find some positive news out of all of the devastation and tragedy that has occurred in Houston, we at SERVPRO of N.Vista/San Marcos do have some good news to share.  All of our employees who traveled to Houston to help with the clean up efforts have now returned safe and sound.  With open arms we want to welcome back Joe, Alex, Sebastian, and Junior.  We are all very proud of all of you and happy to have you back.  You all sacrificed your time with family and donated your blood, sweat, and tears to help those who truly needed it. The definition of hero is as follows: "a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities."  If that is how a hero is defined then we are proud to say that we have four, real life heroes, working at SERVPRO of N.Vista/San Marcos.

Welcome home fellas!
