Large Loss at Local Airport
This large loss was caused by an overnight storm. Over 12" of water affected nearly 7,000 sq ft. of office space, lobby and break-room areas.
We received the call early Friday morning and within an hour we had a crew on-site. They began the mitigation process by removing carpets, baseboards and cutting walls. Once that phase was complete our crew began the drying process by placing air movers and utilizing our desiccant. We used two generators to minimize any business interruption. After six days, the drying process was completed and ready for reconstruction.
At SERVPRO of Arcadia our technicians are all certified and ready to assist with any size damage. We specialize in effective drying procedures with our state of the art equipment. We are a 24-Hour emergency response service. We leave it, "Like it never even happened."

Storm Awareness (Great Tips!)
Did you know that floods are the most common natural disaster in the U.S.?
Heavy rainstorms can cause significant flooding, overflowing levees or dams, contributing to flash floods and mudslides. Although, California does not commonly experience heavy rain from time to time. This could potentially put property like your home or business at risk.
Tips to help avoid flooding for your home or business:
- Prepare your property by installing rain gutters and other drainage systems. (Clean out rain gutters frequently.)
- Understanding the flood risk in your area and fix any leaks IMMEDIATELY.
- Extra roof protection by investing and installing a rubber roof underlayment (waterproof barrier that goes under the shingles and protects the roof from water intrusion).
Tips for drivers during the rainy season
- Avoid cruise control (This feature works great in dry conditions, but when used in wet conditions, the chance of losing control of the vehicle can increase).
- When driving, slow down and leave room in front of you (slowing down suddenly during wet conditions is critical and can increase a car’s chance of hydroplaning).
If you do experience flood damage in your home or business SERVPRO of Arcadia is here to help leave it, "Like it never even happened."
