Storm Damage It doesn't take much snow for there to be damage! The snow is coming - trim your trees!

It does not take much snow loads on trees to create damage to your property.

It is important to keep your trees trimmed from above your home. (And it is important to have the snow removed from your roof if it gets to deep.)

If you should have a tree fall on your roof we can be there to help minimize the damage that it causes by cutting back the tree branches on the roof, tarping the holes left, boarding up the walls that might have been damaged.

We can also pack out your belongings, if necessary, and place them in a storage container for you.

We are available everyday of the year and every hour of the day.  Our crews know how to drive in snow and ice and our vehicles are equipped with either all wheel drive and/or chains.

The freezing temperatures are on the way!

* Leave your heater at 55 degrees

Rain Storm Damage Cleanup

8/19/2018 (Permalink)

Here in California we are all praying for the rain to come to put our fires and to fill the lakes and reservoirs.  We so need a relief from the long drought we are experiencing.

When the rain storms come you just might have some water damage from them. 

The water gutters on your home should be cleared several times a year to prevent back up. 

The ground around the outside of you house should be checked to make sure it is below the siding (especially in the mountain communities). If it is too high the runoff from the storm could enter your house and you probably do not have insurance to cover this.

SERVPRO of Big Bear/ Lake Arrowhead/ NE Rancho Cucamonga is available 24 hours of every day to assist you with any water problems you might experience.  Call us at 909-878-0302.

Hail Causes Some Serious Damage

Now that we are in monsoon season it is a bit odd to be blogging about hail in Southern California, but it is a reality for this time of year as well as in the winter.

This photo shows some various serious damage from rather larger hail. We usually do not have hail this size, but the hail we get does cause damage to people as well as cars and homes. 

SERVPRO of Big Bear/ Lake Arrowhead, NE Rancho Cucamonga is ready to come help you if you have hail storm damage to your home.  We provide board up services to secure the damaged areas of your home.  We are available 24 hours of every day and when you call 909-878-0302 the phone will be answered by a human being!  Try us and see.

It is Summer but Winter will return!

Snow/Rain/Wind Storm

A family’s Wrightwood home suffered serious damage last winter after a snow, wind, and rain storm. Thankfully they called SERVPRO of Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead/NE Rancho Cucamonga and we were able to help them and several other mountain community families clean up debris and restore the property to preloss conditions. The homeowners were grateful that our 24/7 services were available to them in their time of need. 

If your home has been damaged by severe floods or storms, call us right away at (909) 878-0302. Disaster can strike when we least expect it, but SERVPRO of Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead/NE Rancho Cucamonga will be there to help you weather the storm.

Faster Response

Since we are locally owned and operated, we are able to respond more quickly and with the right resources, which is extremely important. A fast response lessens the damage, limits further damage, and reduces the restoration cost.  All our staff are residents in the mountains and understand the driving conditions, weather problems, and special needs of mountain home owners. We also understand the situation with the damage home being your mountain cabin get-a-away and that you are not there full time; or maybe this home is a vacation rental.

Resources to Handle Floods and Storms

When storms hit the San  Bernardino Mountains we can scale our resources to handle a large storm or flooding disaster. We can access equipment and personnel from a network of 1,650 Franchises across the country and elite Disaster Recovery Teams that are strategically located throughout the United States.

Rain and Rock Slides

Storm Damage Rain and Rock Slides Artic Circle Rock Slide

Yes, we finally received the promised rain.  There was no where near enough for us but we will take all that we can get.  

And of course we here in the Big Bear Valley know that the chances of the Arctic Circle closing are always high when it rains.

The 18 was closed for the long afternoon and early evening so that the Cal Trans Crew could work their magic again and allow us back on the road by about 5:50.  Thank you Cal Trans Workers.  You are very appreciated.

Let's keep hoping for more moisture and for the mountain rocks to remain where they are when it comes.

Mountian living is wonderful and at times it can be challenging.  Be patient and enjoy it all!

This is always possible in the mountains!
