Who Knew a Small Paint Shop Would Grow Into SERVPRO - a Restoration Giant? 

It all started with a dream. When Ted and Doris Isaacson first launched SERVPRO in 1967, it was a painting business nestled in Sacramento, California. With a background in both cleaning and restoration however, the Isaacsons soon flourished their company into a franchisor of both cleanup and restoration specialists. After the first SERVPRO was franchised in 1967, the brand has never stopped growing. 

As a recognized national brand throughout the United States and Canada, each franchise is locally owned and operated including SERVPRO of Claremont / Montclair. You can trust that our expertise, experience and commercial equipment will give you peace of mind in any disaster. We are known to make any disaster look “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at 909-399-9057 to schedule an appointment today.

Know Where To Shutoff Water Valves

3/3/2023 (Permalink)

Shut off water valves in case of emergency.

Knowing where the shutoff valves are throughout your home and business can save you a whole lot of time and headaches. It is handy to know each one’s whereabouts, in case any flooding occurs or water overflow of any kind happens. It is also good to know how to turn off each of the valves, even if it is just for routine maintenance. We will go over some common valves you will find in your home or business and show you how to turn them off.  

The Meter - The meter is commonly found in residential homes towards the curb, near the street. It controls where your local city’s water begins and where it divides in your property. If you lift the lid, you will find the shut-off to the meter box, which controls the water of both the interior and exterior of the residence. This includes sinks, showers, sprinkler systems and pools, just to name a few.  

Main Service – Located at the “main service”, a water line goes up to the front of the house and connects to the hose bib or water spigot. If it can’t be found there, try looking in the garage too. Shutting it off will turn off the water inside your home, but not disturb irrigation outside.

Water Heater – The water in your water heater is given by the “main service” line. You can find the shutoff valve at the very top, next to the water flex lines.

Locating and shutting off the water supply is crucial if an emergency occurs. With a little bit of preparation, knowledgeable homeowners and business owners can have peace of mind.

The rain and snowfall looked never ending for the mountain communities that make up Big Bear and Big Bear Lake, California. This is just a glimpse of the 1,000 homes that were affected by water damage, mud slides and mold. There was a lot of work to be done on this specific house including a pack out of all the contents both inside and out, removing all the mud that invaded the home from the mudslide, detail cleaning as well as a pack in of their personal belongings. This was no easy task to get this home back to the way it was, but nothing is impossible for our team. Our client was overjoyed with the results of her home and thanked us-the most valuable thing we cherish.

One thing we cannot control is the weather. And while Mother Nature has a way of making storms wreak havoc, there are a few things to keep in mind. Before the big storm hits, be prepared in case there is an outage:

  • Check for any storm warnings and weather advisories
  • Have a battery – powered radio handy for the latest news
  • Keep a flashlight with new batteries close by
  • Add a non-electric can opener
  • Guarantee the flood supply of canned / packaged
  • Open the refrigerator as little as possible during outages. This way food will last longer.
  • Always keep a two-week water supply for every person in your household

If a storm has already hit, please reach out to us at 909-399-9057 so we can help you on what to do next.

Storm Damage Tree Uplifting and Asphalt Rising Before/After

High winds lifted up large trees all around our local areas. Trees and debris fallen everywhere including right outside our offices. When this tree caused the asphalt around it to lift up we had a major job to do. 

Under the supervision of Dylan, the very experienced production manager of the team, every piece of debris was cleaned by our advanced cleaning equipment and we were able to help in the process and get the asphalt filled up again.
