A person uses an infrared camera to locate the source of water damage in a home. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

Our team in Murrieta has been restoring water damage in Murrieta for years. When we arrive at a water damage emergency scene, we begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property to assess the damage. The inspection helps our professionals develop the best plan of action. Here is some information from our website that describes the steps we take during this phase of the restoration:

Identify and Stop the Water Source

We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.

Identify the Type of Water

We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The water contamination level will affect the specific restoration processes we use.

  • Category 1: "Clean Water"
  • Category 2: "Gray Water"
  • Category 3: "Black Water"

Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises

We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident.

Move or Block Furniture

We move furniture, property contents, and block items to help prevent rust or furniture stains on wet carpets.

A view of City Hall in the Civic Center of Murrieta, California, is shown. We restore commercial water damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

Our team in Murrieta has been restoring water damage for Murrieta Hot Springs businesses for many years. Water is invasive and can cause severe damage in less than one hour. We use powerful, industrial-grade water extraction and drying equipment to remove the water quickly and dry the area thoroughly. We monitor and document the drying process to ensure the damaged area is returned to normal humidity levels.

Water is invasive, and the longer it remains untreated, the greater the damage and the more costly and time-consuming the repairs. Here is a water damage timeline from our website describing what water can do in one day:

Within Minutes

  • Water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path
  • Water is absorbed into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings
  • Furniture finishes may bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets
  • Photographs, books, and other paper goods start to swell and warp

Hours 1 - 24

  • Drywall begins to swell and break down
  • Metal surfaces begin to tarnish
  • Furniture begins to swell and crack

Heat Stroke Prevention Tips for Murrieta Pets?

9/20/2022 (Permalink)

A dog wearing sunglasses cools off in the grass on a hot day. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

September is a hot month in Murrieta. Our team in Murrieta offers this information for keeping pets safe from heat stroke from the American Animal Hospital Association:

What are heatstroke signs in pets?

As you enjoy a game of fetch or frisbee with your pooch, keep a close eye on her for overheating signs, such as:

  • Excessive panting
  • Excessive drooling
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea, with or without blood
  • Weakness
  • Incoordination or stumbling
  • Sudden collapse
  • Seizures

Act immediately if your pet displays any of these signs. Once your pet begins to overheat, heatstroke progresses quickly.

Ways to prevent heatstroke

Consider the possibility of heatstroke any time the temperature is above 80 degrees or humidity is high, and take these precautions to keep your pet cool:

  • Never leave your pet unsupervised outside on hot days. While you are away, keep your pet indoors with air conditioning.
  • While outside, ensure your pet has access to fresh water, shade, and shelter away from direct sunlight
  • Take your daily walk or jog in the morning before temperatures reach dangerous levels.
  • Never leave your pet alone in a parked car. Heat quickly builds to deadly levels in a closed car, even on sunny days that aren’t hot.
  • On hot days, keep brachycephalic breeds, elderly and obese pets, and those with heart or lung disease inside your air-conditioned home except for short outdoor bathroom breaks.

Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Fire Safety Tips for Murrieta Hot Springs?

9/9/2022 (Permalink)

A fire alarm with a strobe light alerts hard-of-hearing and deaf people of impending fire danger. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

Smoke alarms save lives. But those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing cannot depend on the sound of the regular alarm to alert them to a fire. Our team in Murrieta offers these safety tips for Murrieta Hot Springs residents from the National Fire Protection Association:

Safety Tips
  • Smoke alarms are available for people who are deaf (those with profound hearing loss). These alarms use strobe lights to wake the person. Vibration notification appliances, such as pillow or bed shakers, are required and are currently activated by the sound of a smoke alarm.
  • Older adults or people who are hard of hearing (those with mild to severe hearing loss) can use a device that emits a mixed, low-pitched sound. In its current form, this device activates by the sound of a traditional smoke alarm.
  • Always choose equipment that has the label of a recognized testing laboratory
  • Make sure everyone in your home understands and reacts to the signal (light, vibration, or sound) used in their situation
  • Test smoke alarms monthly. Replace smoke alarms and equipment for people who are deaf or hard of hearing according to the manufacturer’s recommendations

Microwave Fire in Murrieta Hot Springs Home?

8/23/2022 (Permalink)

A person uses a fire extinguisher to put out a fire in a microwave oven. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

Our team in Murrieta has the training, equipment, and experience to restore fire damage in Murrieta Hot Springs “Like it never even happened.” Busy families enjoy the convenience of microwave ovens for preparing and reheating foods. Here is some information about microwave safety from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • PURCHASE a microwave oven that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory. Make sure to complete and return the product registration card. This way, the manufacturer can reach you if there is a product recall.
  • PLUG the microwave oven directly into the wall outlet — never use an extension cord
  • MAKE sure the microwave oven is at a safe height, within easy reach of all users
  • OPEN food slowly, away from the face. Hot steam or the food itself can cause burns.
  • FOOD heats unevenly in microwave ovens. Stir and test before eating or giving to children.
  • NEVER heat a baby bottle in the microwave. Since a microwave oven heats unevenly, it can create hot pockets, leading to burns. Warm a bottle in a bowl of warm, not hot or boiling, water, or by running it under the tap.
