Mold in Folsom

9/22/2017 (Permalink)

When you're on vacation, the last thing you expect is a phone call from your house sitter stating that you're entire house is under two inches of water. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened to this homeowner while she was out of the country.

With water trapped in the walls, floor, and contents for a few weeks, we were eventually called out to complete an estimate and get started on the remediation process. After moisture readings, we discovered that most of the house had been affected by mold due to the extended period of time that the water was trapped.

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville has the equipment and expertise necessary to complete a large loss such as this one. Our team will do whatever it takes to make sure our customers are safe in their homes without contaminants effecting their immune system.

In the photo provided, you can see charred drywall as well as smoke damage in the kitchen of this Sacramento home. The homeowner was frying tortillas, and when the phone rang, she was distracted away from the frying pan, and her dinner caught fire! With quick action, they were able to put out the fire themselves with an extinguisher before further damage was made.

With a job like this one, our technicians have the equipment, products, and elbow grease to bring this kitchen back to it's normal conditions.

When a fire does occur within a home, most likely one will have smoke damage to most, if not all walls and content that are in close proximity to the loss.

Water Damage The rain is coming! The rain is coming! Flood in Downtown Placerville

Ladies and gentlemen, the rainy months of the year are just around the corner! Are you prepared for the storms that will arise this winter?

Last year, Downtown Placerville experienced a dramatic flood loss due to the river stream rising above ground level. Dozens of shops and stores flooded early in the morning due to an excessive amount of rain, and when employees and owners arrived to open their doors, storm water came spewing out.

Many shops did not have flood insurance, and because of this, their doors closed indefinitely. Don't let the weather take control of your life. Be prepared this season with the right insurance policy tailored to your geographical region, the surrounding elements such as rivers and streams, and make sure to keep valuables up and off of floors.

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville is ready for whatever may happen this season, and we hope you are too. Please give us a call if you have an emergency, and we can assure that someone will get to you ASAP. It's our job to keep our community safe and informed.

Water Losses

9/19/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville understands the need for immediate restoration services when your place of business has a major water loss. Not only does the water need to be extracted, but a professional should evaluate what kind of water made its way into and onto the carpet/flooring.

There are three categories of water when working in the restoration industry. First, we have category 1 - this will be clean water most likely coming from a toilet tank, sink, or refrigerator. The water will not contain contaminants and it will mostly likely not cause any kind of sickness if ingested. Category 2 water losses are typically from washing machines, dish washers, and any loss that may have been going on for over a week. Not many people know that soap is in fact a contaminant. Last but not least, we have category 3. This will include any kind of sewage loss that may occur in a business. Sewage is obviously something that will make you very sick if ingested due to all of the bacteria and viruses that run through our sewer system. If you do have a sewage loss, please call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville right away, and we will be there as soon as possible to clean up the mess. Please avoid cleaning sewage yourself as it is very harmful and without the proper personal protective equipment, it can cause major illness or even death.

Call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville for any and all of your emergency restoration needs. We are just a phone call away from making it "Like it never even happened!"

El Dorado County Mold

Mold Remediation El Dorado County Mold This photo is of an unoccupied commercial building that had a major roof leak.

This winter in El Dorado County, we experienced an abundance of rain and wind storms. The drought thankfully is now over, and SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville received quite a few jobs regarding roof leaks, window leaks, and even floods due to the rain. Unfortunately, individuals are trying to take care of the drying process themselves, and without the correct equipment for this, mold can start to grow within 72 hours. Our team of professional technicians can and will dry a structure to prevent mold from growing. Please call our team today if you are experiencing any kind of water damage. If we can extract and dry the structure within a certain period of time, we can prevent mold from developing and make it “like it never even happened.”

Storm Damage in Placerville

Commercial Storm Damage in Placerville This is just one of the buildings that had been affected by the Placerville Historical Main Street flood.

Do you remember those major storms we faced in the beginning of the year? El Dorado County hadn't experienced a "rainy" season like that in over 10 years. When we walked into work on Friday, February 10th, our phones started ringing off the hook - it turns out, Placerville's Historical Main Street had flooded in the middle of the night, and more than half of the shops on the strip had severe water damage.


SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville loaded up equipment, and journeyed up to Placerville as quickly as possible. All shop owners were in their buildings shoveling water into the street, mopping up mud, and trying their best to remain calm. With our whole team on scene we talked to most, if not all, shop owners to bring them some peace of mind. In an emergency event like this, communication is the key component to getting the cleanup done efficiently and effectively.


SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville understands that your business is the means of support for you and your family. Therefore, we respond to emergency phone calls ASAP. Your emergency is our emergency, and we will help you and your business get back in running order as promptly as possible.

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville is ALWAYS at your service. We had a customer call us at 2AM because she woke up to grab a glass of water in the middle of the night, and discovered that the entire 1st floor of her home had flooded. What a rude awakening!

She called us right away, and we arrived shortly thereafter with water extractors, drying equipment, and dehumidifiers to get the ball rolling on this 3,000-square foot water loss.
