The terrifying thing about massive disasters like these is that no one can do anything about them. They happen, and we have no choice but to deal with the aftermath. Even scarier is that many of them happen suddenly without warning. But earthquakes aren’t the only potential disasters we need to keep an eye on. There are some that are much worse, especially in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
Many residents are concerned about indoor mold as a result of the recent rains and flooding that impacted much of the US. Wizard Restorations understands these concerns and is committed to assisting those who have been affected by the 2015 flood disaster. Wizard Restorations has compiled the following information to guide you as you make decisions regarding mold in your home and workplace.
After a flood, excess moisture and standing water contribute to the growth of mold in homes and other buildings. Steps can be taken to prevent mold growth if wet items are cleaned and dried within 24 to 48 hours. Make sure you only enter your home once it is safe. Mold can be recognized by sight or smell or present no signs at all (hidden behind walls or under floors). If you are allergic to mold, or you have asthma, allergies, or other breathing conditions, being around mold may make your condition worse.
While the normal repairs and maintenance of a home can be taken care of by everyone who resides in the home, there are times when the homeowner will need to solicit assistance from the outside. Unfortunately, these are situations that occur outside of the normal scope of everyday activities, especially since these events are related to natural disasters that people really do not expect. Some of the most common natural disasters that people may experience that will affect the home usually consists of fires, thunderstorms, earthquakes, flooding, and other things that they do not have control of.
It is also important to note that some of these natural disasters are more prone to occur in specific geographical locations of the United States and abroad. So, people can do a certain amount of preparation before these events affect the home that they are residing in. For instance, crowd who live in coastal areas are more apt to experience flooding and lots of thunderstorms during specific seasons of the year so they need an emergency plan available at all times. Therefore, they need to know what to do before and after the aftermath. In fact, one of the best strategies that an owner can do for their families is to make sure that they have the specialists in dealing with suck incidents. Meaning the owner can do their research before these seasons start so that they will know what types of services are offered to both businesses and residential areas.
Here at Wizard Restorations, we are professionals who specialize in restoration services within the Southern California area. In fact, our team of technicians are highly trained in a wide range of services including flood restoration damage, water damage repair, mold remediation, carpet cleaning, rug and upholstery cleaning. Wizard Restorations are equipped with the experience that’s needed to assess the home’s damages and provide an estimate of what needs to be done.

Our Team & Services

This information is needed so that the owner and their families know exactly what they can expect when they visit the home in an emergency situation. Now, the services offered by Wizard restoration’s technicians will vary from one natural disaster to another. Therefore, the services that we supply will relate to at least one of the 4 events.

In Case of Emergency
Wizard Restoration is a serviced based company so our team has the expertise to provide a myriad of services based on the customer’s needs. For instance, after we receive call reporting an incident, our technicians have the expertise to do the entire job of cleaning up and restoring the property back to a pre-loss condition. Many times the services needed will consist of the restoration team providing the owner of the home with an assessment of what needs to be done before they get started. Since each case is different, our primary mission and objective is to provide the owner and their family members with a customized plan that fit that specific situation. For instance, in the case of a fire, the home may have flooding in several rooms in the home or in every area because of the water that the fireman used to put the fire out. So, this is one of the first areas that our restoration team will begin to focus on, and that is removing all of the excess water from the home. After all of the water has been removed from the property completely, our team will also concentrate on drying the area completely so that nothing is left damp. After a home fire, the team may also deal with ashes and smoke damage too so this will need to be cleaned up before the owner can occupy the place again. As stated previously, each case can be vastly different.
Before this team begins the work, the owner is also briefed on how and when the work will be done. (Of course, our team will provide these services right away.) This briefing is needed for both the owner and our team that is onsite so that everyone involved is on the same page. Additionally, the owner will also need to know what these teams will be doing and how long these activities will take before the work is complete. For instance, the team will use specialized equipment to remove all of the water from property as quickly as possible. The equipment that is used for these types of jobs include water pumps, sump pumps, hygrometers, dehumidifiers, air movers, air scrubbers, and any other equipment and tools needed to remove all of the excess water, and then dry the area completely to prevent problems with mold growing and spreading in visible and hidden places around the home.
Dealing With Mold
Because mold is a potential problem in these situations, these teams are also equipped with the knowledge, expertise and equipment to offer mold remediation services. These teams will provide proactive measures to ensure no secondary damage is caused. If secondary damage is caused the price of restoring the property to a pre-storm or pre-fire condition can escalate. Meaning the owner may be responsible for paying thousands of dollars more out of pocket to cover the additional cost. In some situations, these cost may also be billed to their insurance company. Either way, the primary goal in providing these types of services is to keep the damage and the cost of the restoration to a minimum.

Natural disasters that affect the home can be very challenging and difficult times for the owner and their entire family. In fact, the homeowner usually has a lot of things on their mind that must be taken care of right away. One of the most important is getting the family settled again so that they have a place to reside until they can occupy the home again. We accomplish this by keeping everyone involved informed, making sure the home is boarded up properly before people leave site for the day so that vandals cannot do any additional damage while the owners are away. All of this and more can help to alleviate some of the main stress of the family, while we also get them back on the road to occupying their home again as soon as possible.

Therefore, it is essential that people are doing a thorough job of researching these and other factors well in advance. The owner should also know what types of services will be offered and the type of equipment that will be used to restore the home back to its pre-loss condition. By completing this research before a natural disaster like a fire occurs, the owner will have a better chance of providing their family peace of mind and protecting the quality of their investment.
