Before and After: Residential Water Damage in CA
If only homes came with manuals. Sure, there are plenty of DIY resources for tasks big and small, but even the most responsible homeowner simply can’t be prepared to handle everything life throws their way. But that’s why SERVPRO of Fontana is here: when disaster hits, we strap on our capes, and rush to the rescue!
Take a look at a couple of our most recent jobs out in San Bernardino County – and how our team saved the day:
Water Damage in Victorville
Folks in the High Desert may be used to unusual weather, but Mother Nature can’t take the blame for this mess in Victorville. A pipe had burst in the customer’s garage, affecting an adjacent bedroom. You can catch a glimpse of the waterlogged carpet and damp walls, especially in the closet area.
Unfortunately, once this kind of flooding has occurred, there’s no real way to salvage the walls or carpeting. Floodwaters can host harmful bacteria that pose a serious health risk, especially when the water has been sitting for an extended period of time. Drying out the spill isn’t enough to make the area livable – this would require some rebuilding.
SERVPRO arrived on the scene and got to work, packing out the affected areas and stripping both the carpeting and lower segments of the wall. Once the bare floor was exposed, we sanitized and dried the zone to prepare for new construction.
Of course, having your home torn apart while you’re trying to live there can be inconvenient, so our team always works as fast as can be done without sacrificing quality. This job was completed in just 4 days.
Burst Supply Line in Fontana
It’s every homeowner’s nightmare: going away for a fun-filled weekend, only to return to a flooded house. So when our customer in Fontana found just such an emergency awaiting, they called SERVPRO to the scene.
A supply line had burst in the upstairs bathroom, affecting the entire downstairs level. And since nobody had been home to catch the problem right away, the water damage was pretty significant.
We arrived on scene and started the mitigation process right away, removing the damaged sections of wall and flooring and sanitizing the affected areas. It didn’t take long at all to get the home cleared for human residence once again.
Because we have plenty of experience with this sort of thing, our team also worked with the client and her insurance carrier to get the home cleared for reconstruction as quickly as possible. Situations like this can be very trying for homeowners, so SERVPRO does everything we can to make it easier.
SERVPRO of Fontana offers 24/7 service, including all major holidays – because emergencies don’t wait for normal business hours. For water damage restoration, mold remediation and other residential services, call us today at (909) 357-4337.
