Flooding Damage in Murrieta Business?

1/17/2021 (Permalink)

A pipe has burst and is spewing water in a commercial building. We respond to commercial damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Murrieta and Murrieta Hot Springs!

Burst Pipe Bummer

Early one winter the morning I got a call that my Murrieta Hot Springs store was flooded. Evidently, a pipe burst, and the free-flowing water quickly flooded the warehouse and business offices, damaging some inventory, the office furniture, and the boxes of orders that were waiting to be shipped out the next day. Fortunately, I called SERVPRO® of Murrieta, and they mobilized a team of restoration technicians who arrived quickly and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process.

They shut off the water to the burst pipe and used extraction equipment to remove the water from the floors. They set up air movers and air blowers to remove the excess moisture from the warehouse and office areas and their quick response allowed me to salvage the inventory and shipments that were exposed to the water.

Two days later you would never know there had been any water damage!

Ember-Ignited Fire in Murrieta Neighborhood.

1/5/2021 (Permalink)

A backyard with a view of a golf course is shown with wooden chairs in front of an outdoor fire pit. Murrieta residents count on us to restore fire damage!

Ember fire prevention tips

It was a cool winter evening in Murrieta. We lit the outdoor firepit, and a gust of wind came and blew some of the embers up and onto the deck above us, causing a fire to break out. It happened so fast. Although the Murrieta Fire Department responded quickly to our call and extinguished the fire before it could spread to other parts of the house, there was still a lot of fire and water damage left from the firefighting efforts.

SERVPRO® of Murrieta responds to fire damage emergencies 24 hours a day, and cleans and restores all kinds of property damage. Research published by the National Fire Protection Association and the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety reports that deck fires have a better chance of igniting when fuel sources are closer together.  Here are some tips for minimizing fire risk from windblown embers to decks:

  • Do not store items that can ignite underneath a deck.
  • Increase the gap between deck boards from 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch.
  • Increase joist spacing from 16 inches to 24 inches
  • Apply a foil-faced self-adhering flashing tape (foil-faced bitumen tape) on the top of each joist.

Party Disaster in Murrieta Hot Springs

12/28/2020 (Permalink)

Broken champagne glasses and confetti and party decorations cover a wooden floor. We clean and restore property damage in the Murrieta area.

Party Gone Wrong

My teenaged kids decided to have a party last year while I was out of town on business. Someone got the bright idea to print flyers and send invitations out via social media. I bet you can guess the rest. . .

 I came home early to find that hundreds of party-goers had converged on my Murrieta Hot Springs home, and the place looked like a war zone. There was broken glass, confetti, muddy carpets, and someone had thrown my potted plants in the pool. I called the police, and they came and helped me evacuate all of the people, and I know my kids learned a hard lesson that night.

Thankfully SERVPRO® of Murrieta provides specialty cleaning services that go way beyond a routine janitorial service, and they sent a crew out and that went to work immediately. The crew removed all of the party debris, cleaning the entire house from top to bottom, cleaned the front and back yards, and even fished my plants out of the pool!

Hoarding Situation in Murrieta Hot Springs?

A Mediterranean House is shown on a residential street on a sunny day. We cleanup and restore properties damaged by hoarding in Murrieta.

Bad rental situation

It had been a year since I did the last inspection on my rental property in Murrieta Hot Springs. The former resident lived alone and had recently passed away, so I knew there would be some things left in the house that would need to be removed. From the outside, the house appeared to be in good condition, but when I went inside, I was faced with a hoarding situation. Garbage, stacks of newspapers and magazines, clothes sat in piles on the furniture, and the kitchen looked and smelled awful. I recognized at once that this was a hoarding situation and that I would need to call in a professional service to clean and restore my rental property.

I called SERVPRO® of Murrieta and they sent a clean up and restoration team out who took care of everything. They removed and disposed of the contents of the house, and then completely cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized the walls, floors, carpets, bathrooms, and kitchen. They repainted the interior and by the time they completed the job, you would never know that there had been a hoarding situation!

A tree has blown over and damaged part of a house. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Murrieta Hot Springs!

Timber!!!

The storm that blew through southern California and Murrieta in November sure did a number on my house. The high winds blew over a tree from my neighbors’ yard that landed on part of my house but fortunately only managed to take out a couple of windows and part of the roof. The damage happened in the early morning hours, and I called SERVPRO® of Murrieta.

They arrived on site quickly, boarded up the broken windows, and tarped the roof's damaged part to prevent rain from getting inside the house. Then they removed the broken glass and tree debris from around the perimeter of my house. After the tree was removed from my roof and taken away, they returned and completed the rest of the restoration work. In a few days, my house looked just like it did before the storm damage!
