Safe and sound

In the event of a major fire such as the one that afflicted this Apple Valley, CA home, one of the very first things SERVPRO does is a contents pack-out. This typically requires using an external storage container that can accommodate the large amount of personal belongings found in a person’s home.

Kitchen sink pipe bursts are one of the most common types of water loss calls that SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley and SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms receives. Often time, pipe leaks go undetected for an extended period of time. At best, this leads to soggy and saturated wood and at worst may lead to mold.

This Hesperia, CA home experienced a pipe burst under the kitchen sink in the middle of the night, allowing water to flow freely and stand undetected for hours. Dehumidifiers are used to pull moisture from the air and then release it via the discharge hose.

Just in case

SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley and SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms water technicians Kris and John prepare the carpet below a ruptured ceiling caused by excessive moisture buildup. Laying out this plastic sheeting (referred to as “poly”) ensures that any debris or excess dust caused from demolishing drywall doesn’t spread or permanently damage the carpet. Respirators are necessary when dealing with drywall to ensure the dust and particulates are not inhaled.

Getting Rid of that Mold!

Have you ever heard the saying “measure twice, cut once”? SERVPRO of Hesperia / Apple Valley / Barstow / Twentynine Palms take this credo very seriously. When mold began growing behind this Apple Valley, CA home's walls from an undetected leak, we traced the moisture and the mold that had begun to grow and then removed the affected material. After that, we placed drying equipment to make sure we completely handled the problem the first time.

Raising the Roof

One of the reasons people choose SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley/Barstow/Twentynine Palms over another restoration company is our dedication to completing the job, no matter the scope of work involved.

X Marks the Spot

Water has a way of moving within the walls of a home. It almost seems to have a mind of its own and sometimes, a large amount of work must be performed in order to completely dry out the inside of the walls. The tape arrows in this picture are cut indicators. After these cuts are made and the drywall is removed, drying equipment is placed and monitored until the moisture is no longer detectable.

Mold is no Joke

Mold is no joke. It can grow within 48 hours if a pipe leak goes undetected and can spread aggressively. While mold cannot be killed, our trained technicians can stop mold in its tracks when detected early using our proprietary cleaning agents. If it has gone this far (as noted in the photograph) we can remove it completely and make it "Like it never even happened."
