“Dealing with a plumbing-related flood in our house is super challenging- Adan and his team from SERVPRO made it so much less stressful. Adan is an excellent communicator and always kept us updated. The office staff were great about scheduling and confirming when Adan or anyone would need to be at our home. The demo crews that worked in our home were polite and did a great job, never left any mess, and completed work in a timely manner! They are definitely recommended!!” Laura Manasan

Our local team in Mission Valley responds to storm damage emergencies day and night. Our technicians have the equipment, training, and experience to tackle storm damage, no matter how big the job is.

Santa Ana Winds

These hot, strong, and damaging winds blow into Southern California in the fall and winter but are also known to occur at other times of the year. In past years they have overturned semi-trucks and vehicles on freeways and caused severe structural damage.

Wildfire Season

As the vegetation dries out, the risk of wildfire increases, and wildfires are known to occur at all times of the year, especially during the summer to fall months.

Pacific Hurricane Season

The Pacific Hurricane Season begins on May 15 and lasts until November 30 each year. Last year’s season featured multiple landfalls along the coastline of Mexico that brought tropical storms to parts of San Diego County.

Additionally, we get thunderstorms and lightning and heavy rain from atmospheric rivers. We witnessed hundreds of lightning strikes during a big thunderstorm earlier this year!

The walls around a stove are damaged by a grease fire. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in San Diego.

The National Fire Protection Association reports cooking fires as the number one cause of fire damage in homes in the United States. Our team in Mission Valley East has the training, equipment, and experience to mitigate and restore fire damage, no matter how big the job is. Here are some tips from the NFPA for cooking safely:

What you should know about home cooking safety
  • Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires. Smother the fire by sliding the lid over the pan and turning off the stovetop. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
  • Be on alert! Don’t use the stove or stovetop if you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol.
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling, or broiling food
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the kitchen while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking
  • Keep anything that can catch fire. Keep oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, or curtains — away from your stovetop.

Smoke rises towards a smoke detector on a ceiling. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration services in San Diego.

Our team in Mission Valley East responds to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day, every day of the year in Tierrasanta. Smoke alarms play a critical role in a home fire escape plan. Working fire alarms give residents early warning so they can get out of the house quickly. Here are some smoke alarm safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • A closed-door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area.
  • Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years

Do you know that our team in Mission Valley East responds to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day? Last month, strong winds and severe weather pummeled San Diego County. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration offer these definitions for the various classifications of wind alerts:

High Wind Warning: Take Action! Sustained, strong winds with even stronger gusts are happening. Seek shelter. If you are driving, keep both hands on the wheel.

High Wind Watch: Be Prepared! Sustained, strong winds are possible. Secure loose items and adjust plans as necessary so you’re not caught outside.
