A roof shows damaged shingles. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

SERVPRO® of Murrieta responds to storm damage emergencies every year. If your roof has storm damage, homeowners can choose a high-performing impact-resistant shingle to reduce further damage. If you suspect that your roof has extensive damage from a storm and you need to hire a roofing contractor, the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety encourages you to follow these tips:

Hiring a Roofing Contractor?

  • Call your insurance agent first if you believe you need a new roof or repairs because of storm damage
  • Get more than one estimate. Never let a contractor pressure you into hiring them.
  • Work with only licensed and insured contractors.
  • Demand references and check them
  • Ask to see the salesperson’s driver’s license, write down the license number and their vehicle’s license plate number

Getting the Work Done

  • Get contract terms in writing. Cost, time schedules, payment schedules, guarantees, work to be done, and other expectations should be detailed.
  • Never sign a contract with blanks
  • Never pay a contractor in full or sign a completion certificate until the work is finished, and ensure reconstruction is up to current code

Ashes from a fire are shown. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Riverside County.

Our first winter in our home in Murrieta Hot Springs was almost our last. The summer months were hot, and we were looking forward to the cooler winter temperatures. I cleaned the wood-burning stove, and my brother took the ashes outside and dumped them in the garbage can. The ashes still had some live embers in them, and the garbage can and the garage went up in flames!

SERVPRO® of Murrieta wants everyone in Murrieta Hot Springs to have a safe and cozy winter season. Here are some winter fire safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Store cooled ashed in a tightly covered metal container, and keep it outside at least ten feet from your home and any nearby buildings
  • One in every seven home fires involve heating equipment
  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet from any heat source like fireplaces, wood stoves, radiators, or space heaters
  • Keep portable generators outside, away from windows, and as far away from your home as possible.
  • Install and test carbon monoxide alarms at least once a month
  • Plug only one heat-producing appliance into an electrical outlet at a time

Water Intrusion in Murrieta?

Water is dripping down a window. We respond to water damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

SERVPRO® of Murrieta responds to water damage emergencies often in Murrieta. Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute for protecting your home from water intrusion: 

Exterior Inspection and Repair

  • Water can be prevented from entering a structure’s exterior through routine inspection and maintenance and making repairs as needed.
  • Caulk and seal windows
  • Inspect the roof for missing and aging shingles
  • Check rain gutters and drainage systems and remove any debris
  • Check downspouts and clear any clogs and make sure they are draining away from the structure
  • Check sprinkler systems and make sure the sprinklers are not spraying water onto the structure and that water is not pooling around the structure’s foundation
  • Make sure water drains away from the building as water is invasive and will find its way into a structure easily when water is allowed to pool around the foundation. After a storm, or when the ground is already saturated by rainwater, the water may enter into the foundation wall through any cracks.

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
