This commercial space in Cameron Park was a vacant unit that had some faulty weatherproofing. The recent heavy rains caused a massive problem!
So you run a business out of a commercial space; so do we! Most business owners rent from a commercial property manager, but others own their own space.

That’s where we can help. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville services all of El Dorado County and parts of Sacramento County. We will come out to conduct a free estimate and inspection of your water or mold damage. The impact to your business and employees is our first concern.

House Fires in El Dorado County
This customer had a house fire that burnt plastic. You can see the level of damage to the cabinet above.
A fire can be devastating to anyone that experiences it. At SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville we understand what devastation means and we know how to help. We have caring, dedicated, experienced technicians that are ready to assist in any situation. There are different kinds of fires that result in different kinds of soot. Different types of soot need to be cleaned in different ways. Protein fire residue is the hardest to detect, because of its light yellow or white color, but is characterized by the acrid smell of burnt food or burnt hair. Protein fire residues are some of the hardest to clean after because the smell is incredibly pervasive and strong. Combustion of plastics result in soot webs and oily soot. Plastic fire residues are difficult to clean because the soot smears if not cleaned with the correct products. There is a lot of misinformation on the internet, so make sure you call us first!
What do you do about blood?
The question we always get is, "How do you get blood stains out?" Well, there are several ways, but the main question is why are there blood stains? Most homeowners or family members cannot grasp the full extent of the damage that blood can do. We at SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville have products that detect blood and when coupled with our knowledge and experience, we can see the full picture and can recommend removal or cleaning based on the material and the level of damage. We know that this is a difficult situation for our customers and we want to make sure that we make it as easy and stress-free for them as possible.
When you encounter a situation where there is blood or bodily fluids, don’t clean it up first, call us at 916-933-3890 so that we can help you
Mold in your home?
This customer's leak went undetected for 2 years! When you don't use a particular room in your house, damage is easy to miss.
Water damage isn’t always something you notice right away. Sometimes, a small leak can go undetected for a long time and you only notice it when mold starts to grow! Water intrusion can be from something as small as an improperly-filled hole from your satellite dish. One customer had a TV company install her dish 2 years prior, but only noticed the damage when her husband was installing new drapes. Whether you are going through insurance or not, SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville will take the utmost care of your home. We will contain the affected area in plastic and utilize negative air to minimize dust and prevent contamination. We use HEPA decontamination and anti-microbial agents that are botanically derived and safe for people, plants, and pets. You can trust us!
Fires in Pollock Pines
This customers' home caught fire at 2am while they were asleep. Unfortunately their home contained asbestos, but we were able to help!
Fires happen when you least expect it. There is no predicting when these catastrophic events will occur, so it is best to be prepared. The most common items people look for after a fire are important documents and photos. Many times, these items are stored together and are damaged beyond repair. SERVPRO has a document restoration center, but that only works in some instances. We recommend purchasing a fire-proof safe for your home to store your important papers and memories. Fires are devastating financially and emotionally and SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville is here to make it easier for you. We know the insurance process, so we can help you streamline it. Your time is valuable and so is your home. We want you to know that we are Here to Help!
Did you leave a pot on the stove too long?
Though you can't see it, this customer had a protein fire and there is soot all over. This was one of the most heavily affected homes we've ever seen.
Not all fires have charred drywall and black soot. Have you ever heard of a protein fire? Have you ever left your home and wondered if you turned the stove off? A protein fire is caused by burning food and will look and smell completely different than a normal house fire. First of all, you may not see any damage because the smoke is white or pale yellow unlike the black soot of a carbon fire. You will smell a burnt, acrid odor throughout the home. This is one of the hardest odors to remove! Treatment of a protein fire requires specialized cleaning chemicals to thoroughly clean every horizontal and vertical surface in your home. After being cleaned your home may need one or two deodorization treatments to thoroughly eradicate the odor.
This customer had their toilet overflow in the middle of the night. The water came out of the ceiling and into their mattress!
Let me paint you a picture: You wake up at 3am to take your toddler to use the bathroom and you step into the hallway and hear a splash. Uh oh! The toilet didn’t stop filling up after you went to bed last night! What do you do? You call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville! You are worried about the water you can see, but what about the water you can’t? Water on a second story can travel down into the first story and ruin ceilings, walls, and contents. Water will follow the path of least resistance, so seams in flooring or gaps in framing make an easy target. We will come out any time of day or night and assist you in your emergency. Our knowledgeable staff will make sure you are well informed and educated about the process.
What happens when you're gone?
This was a closet in the center of the home. You can see the staining from the mold growth on the walls.
Have you ever been on vacation and worried about what was happening at your home? We frequently get frantic calls from customers who have just returned from vacation and their homes are flooded or their home is vacant for a period of time and they just discovered a leak. In this case, the homeowner was elderly and was in the hospital for an extended stay. Her children were taking care of the house while she was away, but no one was living there for some time. The children came to stay for a few days in preparation for their mother to get released from the hospital, but discovered that the sprinklers in the front lawn had been over-watering and had flooded the home while no one was there. Because of the time frame, mold had begun to grow in the home. We removed all of the contaminated flooring and drywall and disinfected the areas. When you don’t know what to do, call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville!
Bio-Hazard Remediation on the Commercial Scale
Sometimes accidents happen at your facility, whether you want them to or not. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville is there for you in those times of need.

Whether it is a customer that suffers a medical emergency at your facility, or a toilet backs up and floods your warehouse and office, or a customer becomes ill in the parking lot, we can help. Our technicians are trained to the current standards for water damage, mold, and bio-hazard remediation.
When you call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville, you will be connected to a person who understands your needs and your need for an expedited process.

Preventing Mold in Schools
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville works directly with your property management and you to find an effective solution for mold problems that may arise. El Dorado and Placer Counties are prone to mold growth because of the unique climate.
If you notice mold growth or any strong odors, call SERVPRO immediately. We will immediately dispatch an experienced technician to inspect the damage and advise you on your next steps. The safety of your occupants is our first concern.
In any mold remediation situation, there should always be containment of the affected area and use of a HEPA filter for filtration and establishment of a negative-air chamber. Our staff is trained on the most current mold remediation standard, the IICRC S520, and held to high expectations. There are many anti-microbial products on the market available for use, but we prefer to use an agent that is botanically derived and safe for people, plants, and pets.
Give us a call today if we can help.

The Best Is Yet To Come...
Keep your Fork
"There was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live. So as she was getting her things in order, she contacted her Pastor and had him come to her house to discuss certain aspects of her final wishes.
She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in. Everything was in order and the Pastor was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her.
"There's one more thing," she said excitedly.
"What's that?" came the Pastor's reply.
"This is very important," the young woman continued. "I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand."
The Pastor stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say.
"That surprises you, doesn't it?" the young woman asked.
"Well, to be honest, I'm puzzled by the request," said the Pastor.
The young woman explained. "My grandmother once told me this story, and from that time on I have always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement. In all my years of attending socials and dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, 'Keep your fork.' It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming...like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie. Something wonderful, and with substance!"
So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder "What's with the fork?" Then I want you to tell them: "Keep your fork ..the best is yet to come."
The Pastor's eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young woman goodbye. He knew this would be one of the last times he would see her before her death. But he also knew that the young woman had a better grasp of heaven than he did. She had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice her age, with twice as much experience and knowledge. She knew that something better was coming.
At the funeral people were walking by the young woman's casket and they saw the cloak she was wearing and the fork placed in her right hand. Over and over, the Pastor heard the question, "What's with the fork?" And over and over he smiled.
During his message, the Pastor told the people of the conversation he had with the young woman shortly before she died. He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to her. He told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.
He was right. So the next time you reach down for your fork let it remind you, ever so gently, that the best is yet to come."

There are many options when it comes to eliminating, masking, and deodorizing the smells that can collect inside and out of your home or business. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville offers many different solutions to help you with the "smelly smell of something that smells smelly." - Spongebob Squarepants
Odors can be eliminated by the use of ozone, hydroxyls, disinfectants, enzymes/engineered bacteria, odor counteractants, and fogging.
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville typically gets around 5 phone calls a month regarding cigarette smoke odor in a home. With this type of smell, often times more cleaning is required than one would think!
Nicotine is sticky, and will cling to all surfaces including, but not limited to, walls, ceilings, counter tops, fans, and just about any horizontal surfaces you could think of! Because of this, all surfaces need to be wiped down with a disinfecting agent, and then ozoned to pair with the smoke odor and eliminate it for good!
Often times, a duct cleaning is also in order. This will clean out the vent system to ensure that smoke odor won't come back due to the use of a dirty HVAC system.
Call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville for your deodorization needs in and around the El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer, Amador, Calaveras, and Sonora counties! (916) 933-3890

Gotta Teach Em' Young!
Doug and Alexa!
Photo bombed by Blaze the SERVPRO mascot!
Here we have a photo of Douglas Scott (SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville franchise owner) and young daughter Alexa!
In our opinion, learning a trade at a young age is extremely beneficial to the human body, mind, and soul! The children of SERVPRO El Dorado Hills/Placerville have learned so much over the last 3 years, they could practically tell you how to dry out a home after a flood, wipe up the soot off walls due to smoke damage, and how to properly crawl into a crawl space!
Today, Alexa learned about crawl spaces, what their purpose is, and how to properly go about inspecting one for water/mold damage!
She sure is a trooper, and we wouldn't have it any other way!

Gymnasium Flood - El Dorado County
Affected Maple Floor
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville knows/expects emergency calls to come in when the first major rain of the year hits our county.
One of our first calls of the season happened to be a school that experienced a "roof leak" over the weekend, and was discovered Monday morning by the employees. Unfortunately, the drain system on the roof had a malfunction, causing rain water to gush into the gymnasium, down an exterior wall, and under the thick maple floor.
As a certified restoration company, SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville attempts to dry a structure if there is a possibility to do so prior to taking away the affected floor and dry wall. With valiant efforts, we tried to dry this structure. Unfortunately, the water made its way under the hardwood flooring and protective moisture barrier, making it impossible to dry out.
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville removed affected materials, and brought in the best drywall and flooring companies around to complete the gymnasium in time for the school’s annual play! Call the experts today for your emergency loss – you’ll be happy you did!
Water Damage in Shingle Springs, El Dorado County
Water Damage Caused By Pin Hole Leak
Rats and mice can be one of the most destructive pests in a home or structure. Not only do they leave traces behind of feces, nests, and urine, but they also chew.... ON EVERYTHING!
Quick fact about rats and mice; their teeth never stop growing. This is why they are constantly chewing and gnawing on different materials in order to file down the front teeth. If they stopped shaving them down, their teeth would then grow in a spiral, resulting in an inability to eat which will then lead to death!
This home in Shingle Springs, El Dorado County experienced a PVC pipe leak due to rats and mice chewing on a piece of hard plastic holding two pipes together. The pin hole leak caused an extreme amount of water damage over a short amount of time! The homeowners knew just who to call for their emergency water damage restoration. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville has your back; we can even recommend a wonderful pest control company to you if you experience this kind of problem. Give us a call today for more details (916) 933-3890.
JFK Air Port, New York
JFK Airport New York
A water pipe that feeds a sprinkler system in a privately-operated Terminal broke over the weekend in JFK Airport, New York! Talk about flood damage! It's said that if they open the doors to the outside, the water inside the terminal will freeze due to weather conditions, and the terminal would then turn into an ice rink!
Restoration companies like SERVPRO handle flood damage like this on a daily basis. Although the flood damage isn't this extreme each and every time, our franchises are equipped and ready for disasters such as this.
If you or anyone you know experiences flood damage within their home or place of business, please feel free to give us a call at (916) 933-3890 for a free estimate and tips on how to prevent further damage from occurring. Believe it or not, flood damage can be even more destructive than a structure fire. With electrical outlets being submerged in water, there is a great chance for electric shock, sometimes making the area unsafe for those to walk around unless all electricity has been shut off to the building.
Please be careful when dealing with water and flood damage. Call the experts for advice!!!

Winter is approaching
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville would like to remind everyone that the upcoming winter season will be a very wet one indeed! With the rain we had last year, we expect to get about just as much this year! That being said, our franchise would like you all to take precautions necessary to have a safe and joyful winter!
1. Double-paned windows - remove the screens and install storm windows to ensure that the heat stays in and the cold stays out. If that doesn't work for your budget, try picking up an inexpensive plastic-film sheet kit from your local hardware store. This should help keep your home nice and warm!
2. Remember to protect your pipes from freezing this winter! The most susceptible pipes in your home will be located in attics, crawl spaces, basements, and near outer walls. You can try adding more insulation to them to keep them from freezing.
3. Make sure tree and bush branches are away from your home. With the rain and possible snow coming our way, the branches can be so weighed down that they'll break and fall onto your roof.

Fire and smoke damage in Santa Rosa
Half of our team is currently conducting work in and around the Santa Rosa area to help with those who are in desperate need of smoke, soot, and ash cleanup. Luckily, the buildings we've been working on have very little damage to them; mostly light cleanup throughout the structure. This is great news for the store and shop owners! However, with a tragedy like this, not all were lucky... Many homes and businesses were completely burnt to the ground, leaving absolutely nothing left but ash for the owners to rummage through. Many businesses have opened their doors for other business owners to work out of, many property managers and owners have opened their doors for donation centers. Essentially, the entire town has come together to help one another through this tragic time. It warms our hearts here at SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville to see a community come together to achieve greatness!
MOLD MOLD MOLD
It is very common to think that mold is a scary thing! However, mold is a lot like pollen in the way that it’s prevalent in everyday life and how it travels both indoors and out. There is a lot of information on the internet regarding mold, mold damage, and how to treat it. In fact, most people aren't allergic to common mold spores. There are some very dangerous varieties of mold that can pose health hazards, however! Fortunately, these varieties are very rare. If you notice mold in your home, we always recommend contacting an environmental testing agency to test the air quality. This will give you a definitive idea how much mold is in the air in your home, and what kind it is.
After you have consulted with an environmental hygienist, call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville. We will come inspect the areas of concern and give you a thorough plan of how we are going to fix it. Don't try to do it yourself!
Mold Growth in Sacramento
When a home or commercial building catches fire, the local fire department will use excessive amounts of water to put out the flames. Even hours after the fire, materials can still be extremely hot and dangerous to touch. Typically, a restoration company isn't called to scope a fire for about a week after it's occurred. The time in between allows materials and contents to soften, and really soak up any moisture.
Water can, and most likely will, cause secondary damage to a structure. This can include mold growth, musty smells along with soot and char smell, saturated contents, etc. With mold growth being the most prevalent secondary damage issue in this type of situation, SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville has the experience and expertise to restore your structure back to its normal and sustainable conditions. This type of circumstance is something we handle on a weekly basis.
SERVPRO and Hurricane Harvey
On August 25th, 2017, Louisiana and Texas coasts were hit by a massive Category 4 strength hurricane we now refer to as Hurricane Harvey. Once the storm landed on the coast, it quickly spread to Mississippi and Tennessee, making it the largest hurricane to hit the United States!
Thankfully, SERVPRO is a large corporation with many franchises scattered about the United States and Canada. Our corporate office dispatched our Disaster Recovery Teams shortly after the hurricane hit in preparation for damage repairs and cleanup. Currently, we have over 400 franchise teams helping with restoration and mitigation and multiple franchises are dispatching every day to the scene! SERVPRO’s motto is “Faster to any sized disaster”, and as a team, we will bring forth our best efforts to restore these states back to their normal conditions. Disasters can’t be prevented, however, with restoration teams all around the world, we will rebuild and make it “Like it never even happened.”
Rain is coming soon!
Last Friday, this area experienced its first rain of the fall season. Our office was called by a school here in El Dorado Hills because they were experiencing a major roof leak due to a blocked drain in their large 5,000 square foot gym. A teacher discovered the mess in the morning before class was in session, and they immediately knew who to call for water damage cleanup.
When we arrived on scene, more than half the flooring had buckled in the short amount of time the rain water had been pouring down. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville immediately soaked up the standing water, of course, and placed the appropriate equipment in equal sections of the gym. With ceilings being 24 feet tall, we will use a scissor lift to remove the affected drywall. Call our office today for any of your commercial building restoration needs.
Fire Damage in Santa Rosa 2017
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville's technicians have been extremely busy with cleanup in Santa Rosa due to the fires that started in the beginning of October of 2017. With thousands of building structures effected by this fire, "all hands-on deck" happens to be the attitude of many restoration and construction companies around the United States!
It's great to know that our country is coming together during this tragic time. Thousands of individuals have set up donation drop off zones at their home or place of business. In fact, if you or anyone you know would like to donate to the families affected by this fire, please feel free to reach out to us here at SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville. We would be happy to drop of donations for you. You can contact us at (916) 933-3890 or office@SERVPROeldoradohills.com

This past week, we had a customer call us because she discovered a wet spot in her living room. At first, she thought maybe her dog just had an accident in this house, but when it continued in the same spot for more than a few days, she became very suspicious. Soon after, while walking to her car in the morning, she noticed the outside hose faucet next to the house on full blast, and the source of the problem was resolved!!! But once the source has been found and shut off, what do you do next!?
You call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville at (916) 933-3890 to help with drying out your home and decontaminating all affected surfaces. Although the water coming from the faucet was clean, it had run through dirt and soil prior to seeping into the home.

Water Damage in Elk Grove
Have you ever noticed a "bubble" in the ceiling of your home or business? If you have, you may have a leak coming from the story above.

The guest bathroom directly above this room flooded due to a toilet tank malfunction causing the ceiling to collect an abundant amount of water between the dry wall and vinyl flooring. Leave it to the experts to dry out your structure. Popping bubbles in the ceiling could cause it to potentially fall and initiate secondary damage or worse, harm to the person(s) trying to fix the problem. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville is equipped with professionally trained technicians to get this kind of situation under control in a short amount of time.

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville would like to remind our community of the rain that will hit this winter. We are predicted to have yet another very wet winter, so that means we all need to be prepared for what is about to come...
- Rock salt or more environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways and roads
- Sufficient heating fuel, like dry, seasoned wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove
- Adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm
- Make a family emergency plan — Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency
- Listen to a weather radio station or other local news channels for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS) and be aware to changing weather conditions
- Minimize travel, but keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle
- Bring pets/companion animals inside during winter weather
- Move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water
Mold Growth in El Dorado Hills
Most people aren’t aware that mold/mildew is pretty much everywhere around us. Mold is very small fungal hyphae that typically grows in or on moist, warm areas. If you ever come across what you think might be mold growth, please give us a call at (916) 933-3890. We are experts in mitigating this kind of problem, and we use only the very best products on the market to make it “Like it never even happened.” We use an organic antimicrobial product that gets the job done the right way rather than just wiping up the mess with some bleach. Did you know that bleach doesn’t necessarily kill mold growth? Using bleach on a mold problem will skim the surface of any semi porous materials, but it will not get into the root of the growing fungal hyphae. Try not to disturb the mess as it can contaminate other parts of your home or business. Instead, give SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville a call for an estimate today!
National Preparedness Month is sadly coming to an end; however, we should always keep in mind that disasters occur when you least expect them to. Let’s keep the trend going, and step right into Fire Prevention Week starting October 8th! The theme this year is “Every second counts; plan 2 ways out!” To us here at SERVPRO, we believe this means that everyone should have a fire escape plan in place in case of an emergency. We mean it when we say that SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville cares about its community. We recommend that you practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year with the members of your home or business so that everyone remembers exactly what they should and shouldn’t do in case of a fire. For more tips and information, please visit NFPA.org!

Commercial Sewage Backup in Placerville
In most commercial buildings, you will find that there are a few small and hidden rooms for pipes to run throughout the structure. These rooms are intended for professionals to service the pipes every few years to ensure that everything is running properly. The pipelines are not only for water and gas, but for sewage as well; and when a pipe backs up, the pressure within becomes too great for the pipe to hold, and it will burst and cause a mess! ESPECIALLY if that pipe happens to be the main sewage line. This is when you call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville. We are professionals in biohazard cleanup. This kind of work should always be left up to the restoration experts because of the toxins that run through sewage... amongst other things.

Mold in Folsom
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.

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.
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
This photo is of an unoccupied commercial building that had a major roof leak.

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.”

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

Mold in your home?
This is the bottom of a bookshelf that was sitting on carpet. The customer had no idea that she ever had a water leak.
Mold is very common in everyday life. Most people don't even know that they're breathing it in with every single breath. Mold remediation means removing the mold spores to a "normal level". What this means is that we remove all of the affected materials like carpet or drywall. Then we sand and use a HEPA vacuum to clean the wood framing in the area. All of the surfaces are then treated with an EPA-registered fungicide and then we obtain a clearance test.
Finding mold in your home can be scary. Especially when you don't know where it's coming from. The technicians at SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville are very good at determining common causes of mold based on experience. Our crews and staff are very knowledgeable about the industry and will help you in any way they can.

Mold can be scary. There is a lot of information on the internet regarding mold, mold damage, and how to treat it. Mold is a lot like pollen in the way that it travels and its prevalence in every day life. Most people aren't allergic to common mold spores. However, there are some very dangerous varieties of mold that can pose health hazards. Fortunately, these varieties are very rare. If you notice mold in your home, we always recommend contacting an environmental testing agency to test the air quality. This will give you a definitive idea how much (if any) mold is in the air in your home, and what kind it is.
After you have consulted with an environmental hygienist, call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville. We will come inspect the areas of concern and give you a thorough plan of how we are going to fix it. Don't try to do it yourself!

Are you suceptible to mold illness?
This was taken from a recent mold remediation we conducted on a home in El Dorado Hills. The infiltration of the mold in the home was extensive.
Mold is present everywhere. Every time you take a breath, you are inhaling mold spores. Mold in higher concentrations can be dangerous, especially if you have allergies. Only 25% of people are allergic to mold. Please refer to the article below for more information on signs and symptoms, but they can include weakness, runny nose, cough, watery eyes, flu-like symptoms, etc. If you suspect mold in your home, we recommend that you contact an Indoor Air Quality Professional, such as an Environmental Hygienist, to conduct pre-testing. Give SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville a call so we can refer you to a reputable company, and give you our professional guidance. After sampling is conducted, you will receive a report with results detailing the spore count and the different types of mold. If you need services, please call us at 916-933-3890 so that we can conduct an inspection and walk you through the report so that we can create a remediation plan together.

Christmastime in the Foothills
Your tree can make or break your holiday season. Call us if you experience a fire in the El Dorado foothills this holiday season.
The cold air has finally arrived, bringing rain and snow, like we all had hoped. Now it is time to gather around the Christmas tree with our friends and family, celebrating our love for one another and our anticipation of the New Year.
While Christmas trees are absolutely a source of joy around the holidays, with their amazing smell and all of the colorful lights and ornaments, they can also wreak havoc if you are not careful. The National Fire Protection Association reports that, "National estimates of reported home structure fires derived from the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) and NFPA’s annual fire department experience survey show that in 2009-2013, Christmas trees were the item first ignited in an estimated average of 210 reported home structure fires per year, resulting in an annual average of seven civilian fire deaths, 19 civilian fire injuries, and $17.5 million in direct property damage."
The NFPA also reports that four out of five Christmas tree-related fires occurred in December and January, with 44% in December and 37% in January. Christmas tree fires result in high-heat fires with very "wet" smoke. If you do experience this unfortunate loss, please call our office at (916) 933-3890.
