Can I fix water damage myself?
Many homeowners, especially those who consider themselves handy with tools, consider trying to repair water damage on their own. While SERVPRO of Scripps Ranch/Mira Mesa/Rancho Penasquitos appreciates individualism and responsible homeownership, there are often many aspects to a water damage situation that can be easily missed by an individual owner. Commonly, when drywall becomes saturated with water, the insulation or studs behind the wall will also become soaked. Once moisture becomes trapped within walls it will immediately begin to create an environment ripe for microbial growth.
SERVPRO of Scripps Ranch/Mira Mesa/Rancho Penasquitos has professional equipment designed to effectively and efficiently remove moisture from behind existing walls, while focusing on minimizing damage and downtime. The most responsible move is to call SERVPRO of Scripps Ranch/Mira Mesa/Rancho Penasquitos and our team will be on site before you know it.

Local Business Owner's Fire Loss
A local area business owner recently suffered a fire loss in his home. He was out of town for a family funeral when he got a call from his teenage daughter.

Thankfully, local Fire Departments were able to put the fire out in a short amount of time and the only damage was in the home and no lives were lost.

Pipes burst in local preschool
