Water Damage Causes Extensive Mold Growth
When water damage is not reported when it needs to be reported, mold is definitely going to grow in the affected areas as it did in the pictures above. The customer left for vacation and when he came back, most of the downstairs area was affected and had mold growth. Please take a second to notice the height that mold reached in just a few days that the water damage was not treated. SERVPRO of Buena Park will, at this point, set up a plan to mitigate the mold.
Unfortunately, the homeowner was not aware of the water damage happening in his home. When going away for an extended period of time, we suggest the homeowner have someone they trust to check on the home to prevent a mold disaster such as this one.

Basement Flooded? Call Us Today – We’re Ready To Help (714) 523-9119
A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Buena Park basement could flood, including:
- A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
- Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
- Storm sewer backup
- Sanitary sewer backup
- Foundation drainage failure
- Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
- And many more

Does Your Buena Park Home Have A Mold Problem?
Mold spores found in a hall closet of a home as a result of water damage.
Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

This Summer season in California is at high risk for fires due to the vast amount of crops that grew during the record making rains this past winter. These crops wither rapidly during the summer and fall seasons which result in larger and more aggressive fires.
What You Should Know about Fires
Each fire is different, contact SERVPRO of Buena Park for proper cleanup.
Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.
Smoke and soot facts:
- Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
- Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
- The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.
Different Types of Smoke
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Buena Park will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:
Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber
- Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood
- Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
- Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage. We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Water Damage at Shoe Store
Shoe store sustains water damage from main water line located outside of the building.
This commercial building is a shoe store that sustained water damage due to a main water line located outside of the building that burst and flooded the inside of the building.
In order to minimize damages, SERVPRO of Buena Park arrived quickly to the loss site and began services almost immediately. Due to the amount of water, our technicians had to extract water from the floors using a water extractor. Even though the technicians were able to remove a lot of the standing water, the vinyl tiles had already begun to delaminate from the floor. Due to this, this type of flooring needed to be removed in order to dry the floor beneath. The owners of this shoe store were relieved we were able to salvage the majority of their inventory.
