Did Your Broken Hot Water Heater Leave Your Business Flooded in Mission Valley?

6/4/2020 (Permalink)

office underwater including man swimming. Water damage is no joke in San Diego.

Hot Water Heaters Cause Major Damage

My hairdresser rents a space inside a multiple use building that houses over 100 individual beauty salons. Last year, the two huge hot water boilers that heat the water for the entire building went out and flooded one entire wing of the building overnight. All the drywall had to be replaced in the hallway. Some of the salons had water damage. The carpet and carpet pad and baseboards had to be torn up and replaced, too. It was a good thing that SERVPRO was called in to mitigate the damage because the building was open seven days a week. In fact, the repairs were done overnight every night until they were completed, which took about a week. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants San Diego residents to know that when your business experiences water damage, we will work to minimize the disruption and get the repairs completed as quickly as possible.

Call Us

We are on call seven days a week, 24 hours a day to respond to your emergency.

towels on the floor of a brightly lit room, sopping up large amount of water SERVPRO of Mission Valley East Won’t Send You Down the Toilet

Overflowing toilets in San Diego don’t just ruin someone’s day. They can damage floors, ceilings, and room contents.

When a toilet overflow causes a flood, don’t panic – at least not for long. Call SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East at (619) 303-3599 or reach us online; we are available 24/7/365.

If your water lines break in a San Diego home or business, the flood will be clean water. If the water contains the range of what goes into toilets, the flood will be black water. No matter what kind of water causes a flood, the quality degrades quickly. Microbial growth shows up within 48 hours.

Water starts damaging drywall and furniture finishes within minutes. It can seep into the floor and damage the ceiling below. With more time, there is more damage.

SERVPRO of Mission Valley East is Faster to any size disaster because speed matters. Our technicians will remove standing water and use dehumidifiers to get rid of hidden moisture. We are experts in cleaning biohazards, mold remediation, and restoration from water damage.

San Diego Families Begin Wildfire Prevention Planning

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

A wildfire is moving quickly through a rural grassy area in San Diego County. It’s never too early to plan ahead before wildfire season begins in Mission Valley.

Unprecedented Rainfall Brings Fuel for Wildfires

San Diego County has seen over 10.70 inches of rain this year, surpassing the annual average in April. With rainfall of this magnitude we will see lots of vegetation growth and with vegetation growth comes extra fuel for wildfire season which will begin in a few months. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants San Diego residents to know that we have the training and state-of-the-art equipment to respond to any wildfire storm emergency and we want to help.

Wildfire Prevention

According to the County of San Diego, Planning & Development Services Building Division,  it is a good idea to take preventative measures now to protect your home or property from wildfire damage. Keeping a perimeter of 100 feet of defensible space around your property clear of combustible materials like leaves and other vegetation is state-mandated. Taking inventory and photographing your property will help to facilitate insurance claims in the event you suffer damage from a wildfire.

A woman places a cloth face mask over her nose and mouth, showing her eyes only. It’s never been more important to clean and disinfect your home in San Diego.

We are learning more about the new coronavirus, COVID-19 every day. We know that the virus is spread primarily through the air by coughing and through person-to-person contact. Because it is highly contagious it is very important to keep high-touch surfaces in our homes clean and disinfected. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants San Diego residents to know that we have been providing specialty cleaning services for years and have experience safely cleaning and removing biological pathogens similar to COVID-19.

CDC Guidelines for Face Masks

According to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), wearing a cloth face mask covering while out in public can help to reduce the risk of exposure and will help slow the spread of COVID-19. Wearing cloth face masks in public settings is mandated in California and it is important to know how to wear a cloth face mask properly. The CDC recommends cloth face coverings should:

  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Include multiple layers of fabric
  • Allow for breathing without restriction
  • Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
