Biohazard Toilet overflow wets almost entire home in Rancho Cucamonga, CA TWICE WARNING: Viewer discretion is advised due to graphic nature. Not suitable for all audiences as one toilet was definitely harmed in the picture above.

Having plumbing problems can be the worst! Experiencing a sewage back up or a toilet overflow when fecal matter is present essentially paves a pathway of disaster to a property because everything the bacteria laden water touches must be removed for obvious sanitary reasons.

In this particular instance, unfortunately, not only did this tenant know the toilet was having back up problems but this whole scenario was the second occurrence in the matter of only months. Flooring everywhere the backup traveled required prompt removal, along with a foot or two of drywall, baseboards and lower cabinets. Definitely a lot of work.

We certainly understand that accidents happen… We are here around the clock to respond regardless of how difficult the job that we encounter may be. A QUICK Tip: If a toilet at your home or business is continuously running, repeatedly clogged or seeming problematic, turn off the water at the toilet supply line located at the base of the toilet by turning the knob till you hear the water shut off and call a local plumber. If it’s too late and the water “hath runneth over”, call SERVPRO of West Covina right away to prevent further damages or illness. We service our entire SOCAL Community with free visual inspections.

Biohazard Chino Hills Pot House Cleaning Moisture from growing the canibus plant indoors is the biggest culprit in causing expensive damages to your real estate investment.

First thing this morning, we sent one of our inspection crews out to Chino Hills for a ‘pot house cleaning’ and mold issue. From time to time our team receives calls to inspect houses that have been discovered to have been taken over by a marijuana grower. We have been called out for single dwelling homes and even a full street of multiple jumbo two story homes in a single block that were completely covered with mold. Our inspections discover boarded up windows, growing stations, potted plants and typically mold everywhere on all walls and ceilings. Truly a property owner’s nightmare, but they are appreciative that we are there to help return the property back to livable and rentable conditions ASAP.

Our specialty cleaning & mold removal professionals are very detailed and thorough. Any standard visual inspection is complimentary. Call our office for any specialty cleaning needs, even unusual ones like uncovering a marijuana house…
