Palm trees are blown by strong winds. We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in Riverside County.

Murrieta has experienced its share of inclement weather this year. Wind storms and strong wind gusts have preceded many winter storms, causing damage to properties in the area. Our local Murrieta team is trained and certified to restore storm damage quickly and efficiently. Here are some tips for protecting your property from wind damage from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

Secure Fencing, Porches, Canopies, and Sheds

Have them inspected and make sure they are firmly attached and in sound structural condition. Secure any parts of fencing that appear weak or loose.

Anchor Any Fuel Tanks and External Utility Links

If you have an exterior fuel tank or any utilities located outside, anchor or tie them down according to the ground anchor instructions. This will help reduce the risk of them overturning and sliding.

Replace Gravel and Rock Landscaping Materials

Rock and gravel materials can cause serious damage during a severe wind event. Gravel has been found in mailboxes during very strong wind events and has even shredded vinyl siding. Replace these materials with a softer material, such as mulch or dirt.

What Equipment is Used to Restore Smoke Damage in Commercial Properties in Murrieta?

12/20/2022 (Permalink)

A room is filled with smoke. We restore commercial property damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

Our team in Murrieta has been restoring commercial fire damage in Riverside County for years.?Depending on the type of fuels that the fire burned, we may use any or a combination of the following methods to neutralize and remove smoke odor: 

  • Air Scrubber or Filter:?Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system air scrubber or HEPA air purifier captures larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues. 
  • Ozone Generator:?An ozone generator is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces. 
  • Thermal Fogging:?An intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and ventilate the area. 
  • Hydroxyl Generator:?These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment. 
  • Vapor Modification:?This odor elimination method relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor.
