SERVPRO® of Murrieta responds to water damage emergencies often in Murrieta. Here is a recent Google review from a customer who came home from vacation to a water damage mess.

“Went on vacation only to come home to a flood that managed to work its way into every room on the bottom floor. I have never had to deal with water damage before, so I was a little worried about the lasting effect, but the guys from SERVPRO of Murrieta restored my confidence. They worked tirelessly and made sure we were not inconvenienced during the process. It took a few days to complete the work, and I am happy with the results. Thanks, Noah, David, and the Valos team. I hope I never have to go through this again but should that card be dealt; I know who to call.” Tyshone

Toilet Trouble in Murrieta Hot Springs?

A toilet is flushing. We restore water damage quickly and efficiently in Riverside County.

Toilet troubleshooting in Murrieta Hot Springs.

Water damage emergencies happen to the best of us. If you have indoor plumbing, you are likely to have a water damage emergency at some time in your life. At SERVPRO® of Murrieta, we respond to water damage emergencies throughout the year and know that some water damage and plumbing emergencies can be prevented. The Institute for Business and Home Safety lists these prevention and maintenance tips for keeping toilets in good working order:

  • Be patient after you flush and wait for the valve to finish refilling the tank and bowl completely. If an overflow looks imminent, lift off the tank cover, lift the float to shut off the water flow to the tank, and then turn off the supply valve.
  • Twice a year, inspect a toilet’s components, such as the fill, supply, flush valves, and the supply line. Make sure you can turn off the water supply. If you have older screw-type valves that are hard to turn or start leaking, consider replacing them with simpler ball valves that are easy to shut off quickly.

A tree has fallen over. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

SERVPRO® of Murrieta has been restoring storm damage in Murrieta for years. Although high winds can cause property damage, there are things homeowners can do to minimize the damage. Here are some wind damage mitigation tips from State Farm Insurance:

Traditional Homes

  • Keep your home firmly anchored in high winds by having anchor bolts with heavy-gauge and square bolt washers installed to connect your floor to the foundation
  • Reinforce the rest of the frame by connecting wall and floor components with properly installed plywood or oriented strand board and attach roof trusses or rafters to the walls with metal connectors
    • On existing homes, this can be done when replacing siding

Manufactured Homes

  • Manufactured homes are more prone to damage from high winds as a result of non-permanent foundations
  • Inspect all straps and tie-downs regularly for rust, weakness, or wear and have repairs made immediately

Windows

  • Install windows rated for the wind speeds in your region
  • For the best protection in hurricane-prone areas, install impact-resistant permanent shutters that meet applicable building code approved standards

Candles are commonly used during the holidays. SERVPRO® of Murrieta wants everyone to have a safe holiday season this year and offers these candle safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep.
  • Keep candles at least 1 foot away from anything that can burn
  • Use candle holders that are sturdy and won’t tip over easily
  • Put candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface
  • Light candles carefully and keep your hair and any loose clothing away from the flame
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down — put it out before it gets too close to the holder or container
  • Never use a candle if oxygen is used in the home
  • Have flashlights and battery-powered lighting ready to use during a power outage. Never use candles.
  • Think about using flameless candles in your home. They look and smell like real candles.
