"I am very happy with my experience with SERVPRO of Coronado.  Scott and his crew did work for me after a leak in a bathroom.  Communication was prompt.  They showed up on time, every time.  They knew exactly what to do to rectify my situation.  They did everything above and beyond.

I always felt supported, even in a time when I didn't know what to do next.  I hope to never need them again, but I wouldn't hesitate to contact them in the future if needed."

Smoke Detectors Preventing Fire Damage in San Diego, CA

SERVPRO trailer SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado (619) 435-0365

SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado specializes in fire and water damage restoration; it's the cornerstone of our business. In our past experience we have seen the differences in a home or business having functioning smoke detectors versus non-functioning.  With Daylight Savings time occurring recently it's a good time to talk about the importance of smoke detectors. 

Smoke detectors are some of the most important things in your home or business, because they are proven lifesavers.  More fatal fires occur at night when people are sleeping.  Listed below are some tips on installing and maintaining properly working smoke detectors, courtesy of the San Diego Fire Department. 

San Diego Fire Department

Installation

  • Install a smoke detector on each level of your home.
  • The detector should be centrally located between the bedrooms.
  • Place smoke detectors in each bedroom.
  • If you, or someone in your home is deaf or hard of hearing, consider installing an alarm that combines flashing lights, vibration and/or sound.
  • Mount smoke alarms high on walls or ceilings (remember, smoke rises). Ceiling mounted alarms should be installed at least four inches away from the nearest wall; wall-mounted alarms should be installed four to 12 inches away from the ceiling.

Test and Maintain

  • Test detectors once a month.
  • Detectors should not be painted.
  • Most units should be vacuumed once a year to remove cobwebs and dust that may impair a detector's sensitivity.
  • Never paint smoke alarms. Paint, stickers, or other decorations could keep the alarms from working.
  • Smoke alarms don't last forever. Replace your smoke alarms every ten years. California law requires that the new alarm you buy will have a ten-year, sealed battery.

Replace Batteries Semiannually

  • Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery.
  • Whenever your change your clocks to or from daylight saving time you should also change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

What to Do if Your Alarm Sounds

  • Don't try to fight the fire yourself.
  • Get out of the house as quickly as possible.
  • Call 9-1-1 as soon as you are out of the house.

What to Do if Your Detector Makes a Chirping Sound

  • A chirping sound usually indicates a low battery. Replace the battery.

Listed below is another 5 Star Yelp Review.  SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado takes great pride in our customer service. 

"We had a wonderful experience with SERVPRO and it's owner, Scott.  We called Scott after discovering a flood in the crawl space under our house.  He was very nice and was over to our house within 20 minutes!  He surveyed the damage and gave us his honest, professional opinion.  We felt he was very trustworthy and there was no question that he knew his stuff.  We also appreciated the willingness to work in a 24" crawl space.  We proceeded with his recommendations and everything is working perfectly now.  

The plumber he recommended was also very reasonable priced, quick, and professional.  

Hopefully we never have another flood but if we do we will definitely call Scott!"

Infrared Camera 24/7 Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration 619-435-0365

The past few decades has seen a rapid advancement in the technology and techniques used in the restoration industry.

These advancements allow SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado Professionals to restore a property back to a preloss condition quickly, reliably, and more effectively. 

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) sets practical standards for restoration and cleaning. 

IICRC

Listed below are a few examples of the advanced technology we use here at SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado

Detection Equipment:

  • Moisture Meters-used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. 
  • Infrared Camera- used to identify water location for thorough water removal 

Extraction Equipment:

  • Extractors-used in cleaning carpets and upholstery and in removing water from floors following a water damage.  

Air Moving Equipment:

  • Air Movers- used at a high speed, the air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace. 

Dehumidification Equipment:

  • Dehumidifiers- By extracting water vapor from the air, dehumidifiers lower the humidity. They pull the moist, humid air in and discharge dry, warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge, absorbing moisture from wet materials. 

Odor Removal and Deodorization:

  • Air scrubbers- Remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.
  • Thermal Foggers and Deodorization agents: Used to remove odors and/or contaminants on your property.

Water Damage Caused by Rain

SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW / Coronado Why SERVPRO News And Updates

Rain is very important for the natural environment but it can become a problem if it gets into your home.  One of the most common sources of water damage in a home is rain and it can get into your home in so many ways.   

Excessive rainfall can lead to considerable damage in a home as it has the potential to flood basements, ruin foundations and building materials, and contribute to mold growth.  

Rain water can spread within a home by getting absorbed into porous building materials and if the problem is not dealt with right away, the damage can become extensive.  The following are some of the ways rain can cause damage in your home:

  • Seepage: Rain commonly enters homes by seeping through cracks in the foundation. This is much more likely to happen if the gutters are not draining properly and rain water gathers near the sides of the house.  Too much seepage can begin to ruin the foundation.
  • Roof Leaks: If there is any damage to the roof, rain water can leak into the attic or upper floors and cause structural damage to the walls and ceilings.
  • Flooding: Excessive rain can lead to flooding in your home which causes extensive damage and brings in microorganisms that can be harmful to your health.
  • Mold: Rainy or wet conditions contribute to mold growth because mold needs moisture to thrive. Mold not only causes serious property damage, but also threatens your health.  

SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado is here locally to answer any questions you might have.

Servpro Box Truck Have Questions? Call Us Today – (619) 435-0365

We love sharing letters and testimonials from our satisfied customers. Here is one we received after a flood in North Park, Ca. 

David, had a major flood due to a 90-year-old water main that burst, creating a sink hole, which caused flooding in homes, streets, and parks.  

"Have you just been wiped out? Then you'll want Scott - NOW. I'm writing this three days into a major flood, and on a weekend- Scott has been here everyday as well as tending to other customers at the same time! I am extremely impressed with his and his crew's work ethic. I'm going through this flooding issue a second time in about a year (due to the city's crappy infrastructure) - and SERVPRO has been an actual dream to work with. These guys had me dug out, mud'ed out, washed, and in the process of drying before anyone else on the street! Like I said, they are still working on my place as I write this - but the care & professionalism by Scott & crew has been so impressive that I just had to write this. THANK YOU SCOTT & SERVPRO TEAM!!"
