Fire Damage Beaumont, Banning, and Desert Hot Springs Wildfire Damage Event SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning provides fire, soot and water damage restoration service in Beaumont, Banning and Desert Hot Springs.

The active wildfires here in Southern California are increasing their impact as growing Santa Ana winds add fuel to these devastating blazes that are encroaching in our area. According to the New York Times, new fires broke out in Malibu on December 7, with at least 96,000 acres already burned in the Ventura area and 116,000 acres in Los Angeles County. Evacuations have closed hundreds of schools and forced 200,000 of our neighbors to seek safety. The “Thomas Fire” in the Ventura area continues to burn with the aid of strong winds. This fire has caused the closure of the 101 freeway and a boil-water advisory was issued for Ventura County. Santa Ana winds The Santa Ana winds that are enabling the fires to rapidly increase their reach can have speeds in excess of 60 miles per hour. They are not expected to diminish until Friday into Saturday at the earliest. The National Weather Service has warned of “very rapid fire growth” in this area. SERVPRO Meteorologist Lela Davis said that the Santa Ana winds were already very dry when they reached the Southern California valley, allowing them to quickly pull moisture out of vegetation, increasing the risk for wildfires. For the first time ever, a purple wind warning was issued for today under the color-coded system used to advise about high winds. This purple warning pushed wind expectations from the “high” category to “extreme”. Ready to help, here at SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning, we are monitoring this wildfire situation closely. Our thoughts are with those neighbors who may be put in harms’ way during this event. In many cases, a wildfire can result in a total loss for a home or business, but in others it may be a partial loss, or can result in mild smoke damage.

Certain Things Shouldn't Be Allowed to Grow

12/5/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Certain Things Shouldn't Be Allowed to Grow Improper drying and handling of the situation can result in the growth and spread of mold.

There are certain things in life that grow that we enjoy watching. From our children, to our pets, to the flowers we work so hard to attend to in our garden, growth is a natural part of life. But not all growth is created equal. Certain things shouldn't be allowed to grow, Mold is one of them.

Not all Molds are created equal

Mold and fungi naturally grow and are part of our environment. Over 100,000 different strands have been found to exist. Certain fungi and molds are useful and even help in the preparation of certain things. For example, Blue Cheese contains a certain mold which helps to give it that peculiar taste we all love and enjoy. If it weren't for mold, we wouldn't have the bacteria fighting Penicillin we all need and want when sick. And while certain molds and fungi may add value to our lives, other molds may be harmful and dangerous, especially if allowed to grow and spread throughout our homes.

Mold growth inside your home can be the result of excessive water intrusion or damage not properly handled.

Most water intrusions are the result of storm damage, flooding, plumbing, standing leaks, and poor control of humidity inside the home. Areas that containing moisture and for a long period of time are more likely to have mold. Improper drying and handling of the situation can result in the growth and spread of mold. And while most mold may be visible, mold may also exist in areas not visible to the eye, making this all the more serious since its harder to detect.

The growth of mold in your home may have negative effects on your health!

Among those most affected are:

  • Pregnant woman.
  • Infants & children.
  • The elderly.
  • People with compromised respiratory systems.
  • People with weak immune systems.

Don't allow Mold to Grow! If you suspect that your home or business may have mold, Contact us immediately at (951) 922-2900

In the Meantime:

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.

There's More to A Fire Then You Think

Fire Damage There's More to A Fire Then You Think We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.

Exposure to smoke, ashes, and soot from a fire can have harmful effects to your home and health. Long-term exposure to toxins found in smoke, ashes, and soot can contaminate and damage your home as well as have a damaging effect to your lungs and heart.

It's possible your home may have dangerous toxins.

If your home has recently been exposed to smoke, ashes, or soot from a fire, it's possible that dangerous particles and contaminates have settled into your home. And although smoke damage can be visible to the eye, it can also be invisible and hard to trace, hiding in hard to reach places. Behind furniture, attics, air ducks, and other air cleaning systems.

A simple clean or wipe down is not enough, and in most cases, can even worsen your situation.

Improper cleaning can further spread dangerous toxins to other areas of the house not affected by a fire. Turning on fans and other HVAC units too can further spread toxins throughout your home, making your home a fire and toxin hazard. Smoke odor and toxins may also remain in furniture, clothing, carpet, and other places after a fire, unless properly cleaned and deodorized. Professional chemicals and equipment are needed to eliminate smoke, ashes, soot, odor and other dangerous toxins. Preparing and Informing yourself for a fire can be the best thing you can do for your home and your health.
