Home built in 1984 or earlier??? You could have asbestos!

6/19/2024 (Permalink)

Many homes in Mission Viejo were built in the '70s and '80s, unfortunately, many of them with asbestos-containing materials. If you have a popcorn ceiling...you likely have asbestos. If you have original vinyl flooring...you likely have asbestos. Now, the asbestos fibers are not dangerous as long as they do not get wet, or disturbed and become airborne. SERVPRO of Mission Viejo technicians always make sure water or fire-damaged commercial and residential properties are tested for asbestos prior to any restoration work being completed. We have an expert-certified asbestos abatement partner who sets up containment, files permits with the AQMD, and completes the abatement making it "Like it never even happened."

HELP! The Inside Of My House Is Flooded From My Outside Sprinklers?

6/18/2024 (Permalink)

Yes, this can happen, believe it or not. If your outdoor sprinklers suffer some type of malfunction or are pointed in the wrong direction (towards your house, not the grass), you can get water damage. Water intrusion can happen through an open door, or even a closed door that has enough of a gap between the threshold and door to allow water to enter. Add in the fact that you have been gone on vacation and the house has been unoccupied for a week...and BOOM, you have water-soaked wood floors, drywall, and possibly even damaged furniture. No worries! SERVPRO of Mission Viejo's team are water damage experts. We can dry out the entire area and replace the damaged wood floors in no time, leaving your property "Like it never even happened."

When people refer to “water damage restoration”, they typically mean the entire restoration process from start to finish. Included in that process is the "pack-out" and "pack-back" of your contents. It is easy to overlook this step, but it is quite important. SERVPRO of Mission Viejo takes great care in creating a very detailed inventory list for each affected room, with photos. Each box is carefully labeled with the contents of that box and which room it belongs to. During the property restoration phase, the contents are stored in a dedicated, temperature controlled, secure storage unit until the restoration process is completed. Upon completion, our detail oriented SERVPRO contents managers will "pack-back" your items to their original locations leaving your property "Like it never even happened"!

Prevent Kitchen Fires

4/11/2024 (Permalink)

Removing every possible source that could cause a kitchen fire is impossible, but it can be minimized. Here are a few tips on how to prevent a kitchen fire:

  • Unplug electrical appliances when not in use. Appliances such as toaster ovens, coffee makers, etc... Just in case the wiring is old or faulty and causes a fire.
  • Smoke Detectors. Install smoke detectors near the kitchen. That way it isn't triggered by small steam or smoke, but will sense an actual kitchen fire.
  • Do NOT use metal in the microwave. The metal causes sparks in the microwave. It can damage the microwave, as well as start a fire.
  • Do not overfill pots or pans with oil or grease. The hot oil or grease can spill or splatter and cause a fire.
  • Never leave cooking food unattended. Make sure to always stay in the kitchen when something is cooking, especially at very high heat. Make sure to turn the stove or oven off if you have to take an important phone call that could distract you or if you need to leave the house.
