Water Damage Restoration in Fullerton

If you’ve experienced flooding in your Fullerton home or business it’s important to know that water removal and debris removal are just the beginning.  You’ll also need thorough disinfection as well as water damage mitigation.

Water damage can be obvious, or insidiously hidden.  Even a gallon can lead to mold, warped wood, and drywall falling apart once it’s soaked in.  And that can happen in just minutes.  The key to prevention is rapid and thorough drying of all building materials, not just surfaces.  Our water damage specialists know exactly what to do, and have all the right equipment.

Our unique water extraction vacuums the dry floor, wall, and ceiling surfaces to protecting those materials and quickly lower indoor humidity.  An array of refrigerant dehumidifiers and powerful air movers keeps humidity low in order to draw out moisture from deep within the building for complete building structural dry out.  We accomplish in a few days what nature and fans alone would take weeks, avoiding the progressive deterioration that would otherwise have happened.  Our crews will also do a spotless job of cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing.

Wood Floor Flooding Rescue

We stand head and shoulders above other Fullerton water damage removal companies with our expertise and specialized equipment for rescuing hardwood floors.  We combine a floor mat system for extended vacuum extraction with controlled-environment “e-tes” heat drying to keep warping, bowing, and cupping to an absolute minimum.  In most situations, it’s possible to avoid spending tens of thousands of dollars for replacement when mitigation, sanding, and refinishing can achieve the same results.

Mold Remediation

People often underestimate the importance and need for mold removal.  The biggest part of the problem can be completely hidden from the view behind building surfaces and many of the ill effects of toxic species may not show clear symptoms until a great deal of harm has already been done.

Because of the difficulty of complete removal of spores along with the health risks the EPA recommends professional services for all but the smallest of outbreaks.  Our licensed mold removal teams begin with a thorough inspection that includes using moisture meters and IR imaging to zero in on likely locations of hidden mold damage.  We’ll take all recommended precautions, complete thorough decontamination, and apply non-toxic mildicide.  Our crews can also provide carpet, air duct, and crawl space cleaning.

Sewage Damage Restoration

Whenever sewer damage or blockage causes problems you can count on us for proper sewage cleanup.  Needless to say, any sort of sewage backup is a major health hazard and calls for exceptional cleaning and sanitation.  But did you know that many of those disease organisms become airborne?  Or that regulation covers transportation of such wastes through Fullerton?  Our certified anti-microbial technicians make sure that everything is done exactly as it should be, leaving your home or business hygienic and odor-free.

Fullerton Fire Damage Restoration

We provide mitigation, cleanup, and complete fire restoration services.  There’s no need for you to deal with multiple companies during such an overwhelming time.  Starting with expert assessment we’ll provide structural shoring and secure openings with board ups and tarp overs.  Once conditions are safe we’ll take care of emergency cleaning, debris removal, firefighting water damage restoration, and more.  We don’t consider a fire damage restoration job done until things are back to pre-loss condition, and that includes final clean-up and haul away.

Smoke and Odor Removal

Fire odor removal is only part of the picture.  Smoke also contains acid compounds that discolor, stain, and corrode.  Some items are damaged within minutes while others can be rescued with an immediate and thorough cleaning.  That’s often difficult, requiring experience and training to choose the right cleansers and methods for each type of smoke and item affected.  For large building surfaces, dry-ice blasting is usually the most effective means of removing smoke, soot, and char.

Odor-causing compounds penetrate into porous materials such as wood and soon reach depths where they can no longer be removed.  Before that happens our cleaning, thermal foggers, and ozone generators will completely remove all smoke odors.

Crime and Trauma Scene Cleanup

Crime and other trauma scene cleanup require anti-microbial, cleaning, and restoration expertise most individuals and cleaning crews lack.  Our licensed crews will take care of returning everything to the way it was before — healthy and safe with no unpleasant reminders.  They work discreetly and professionally, so there’s no reason for you to directly deal with the unpleasant and potentially hazardous scene.

Cleaning and Contents Restoration


Service First also has the equipment and know-how to take care of your furniture and other belongings, with special attention to items of personal and business value.  In addition to emergency content cleaning on-site, our pack-out services relocate possessions to our facility near Fullerton for a more complete restoration.  Besides a controlled-environment, that provides access to our special equipment such as ultrasonic cleaners, dry cleaning equipment, and drying chambers.  That lets us rescue what many others can’t — artwork, papers and documents, books, photographic and digital media, drapes and clothing, and personal and business electronics.

Pack out also includes secure storage until you’re ready for us to return things to exactly where you want them.  All along the way, we’ll maintain a detailed inventory for insurance purposes as well as for your own peace of mind.
