Preparation is an important safety measure for unforeseen circumstances like floods caused by a natural disaster or poor maintenance. There may not be a natural water source nearby, yet, a flood can still affect your building. Poor drainage can lead to flooding, a broken window can also allow water damage during heavy rain, a broken pipe or dam, or even human error can lead to a flood.

Flood as a natural disaster is not preventable. However, good preparedness will mitigate property damage or loss. This post will guide you on preparing for flood in Citrus Heights, Roseville, or Carmichael.

1. Get a disaster supply kit for an emergency.

A disaster supply kit contains supplies your family needs to survive a disaster. It can be used at home but should be easy to carry in the case of evacuation.

Below are the items needed in your disaster kit.

  • Water (3 days supply; one gallon per person)
  • Food (2 weeks supply for home; 3 days supply for evacuation)
  • Flashlight
  • Spare batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Cell phone or satellite phone with chargers and a backup battery
  • Battery-powered radio for information on rescue, evacuation, or supplies
  • Cash
  • Blankets
  • Mask
  • Multi-purpose toolbox (to turn off utilities)
  • Area map

You can create a disaster kit for yourself using the mentioned items or purchase a pre-assembled emergency kit. Remember that the disaster kit should be easy for you to carry.

It is ideal to have multiple disaster kits for home, office, and car because no one knows where they'll be when caught by a flood.

2. Store important documents electronically and in waterproof storage.
Scan copies of your documents and save them in your email, cloud drives (Google Drive, One Drive), flash drive, or even in your phone. Keep the hardcopy waterproofed to protect it from water damage.

3. Prepare and practice an emergency escape plan
Design an emergency escape plan for flood and fire disasters and practice it with all family members. The emergency plan should include escape routes, conveying points, and emergency contacts. Practice the emergency plan with every member of your family at least twice a year. Everyone should be family with the emergency contacts (especially the kids) and have the numbers saved on their phones. Identify a friend or family outside your community where family members can go to or contact when separated.

4. Insure your Home or Business from flood
Choose an insurance policy that covers your building from internally or externally caused flooding to save you from financial burden.

Secure your insurance policy papers with a waterproof bag and store them electronically, as mentioned earlier, to help you process your insurance claim after the flood.

5. Clear your drainage regularly and fix broken windows to avoid blockage or water entry into your building. Have a professional check and replace worn-out pipes or sinks.

If you ever get caught by a flood and need professional help, don't hesitate to contact SERVPRO of Citrus Heights/Roseville, and Carmichael immediately.

Steps to Take When Water Floods Your Property

2/28/2022 (Permalink)

flooded water and shoes A guide on what to do when water floods your property.

A flood can have a devastating effect on properties and property owners. The results are partial or total loss of properties, financial burden, loss of valuable documents, destruction of structures, health risk, and more.

A flood can happen at any time. There may be little to do to stop floods caused by severe storms. Other causes of floods are a broken dam, a broken tank, or a broken pipe. Do not be discouraged by the incident; instead, prepare yourself for emergency mitigation and restoration actions you can do by yourself before professionals arrive.

Below is a guide on what to do when water floods your property.

Safety First
You need to be extremely careful during a flood and take note of these two things. First is the fear of being carried away by the flood (this depends on the magnitude). The second is the fear of electrocution. When there's a flood, the first thing to do is to cut off the power supply from the main circuit breaker. Wear a protective boot and glove before doing this. Water is a conductor of electricity. There's a high risk of being electrocuted when it gets to an open switch, loose cable, or electrical appliance.

If you're unable to do this quickly or safely due to proximity of another reason, then you should evacuate all persons on the premises to a safe place.

Drain out the water
Naturally, when the flood subsides, the water level reduces as water flows away. For floods not caused by a natural disaster, locate the source of the flood and stop the flow before pumping out water from the building. The ones inside the building may not have a place to flow to. Wear protective boots and begin to drain the water outside with a pump.

You can use a bucket or bowl to remove water if you don't have a pump.

Dry out the building
Open all windows and doors and use fans or dehumidifier to dry out remnant water from the building.

Clean and disinfect the building
Flood carries microorganisms and bacteria around. Please get rid of them by cleaning thoroughly with soap and water and disinfecting all surfaces. Take out wet carpets to be cleaned and dried. Make sure you clean all edges to prevent mold from forming later. Take out all curtains and clothes and have them washed. Remove damaged items.

Dry and repair items

There's almost no item flood cannot damage. Nonetheless, quickly dry soaked items like furniture, clothes, carpets, paintings, electronics. You may be lucky to find some electronics still functional after drying. It's important to dry all electronics before powering; better still, leave electronics for professionals to handle.

Early response and cleaning will help you mitigate property damage. The longer it takes to clear out water from a property or clean items, the lesser the chance of recovering items. Quick response lower the risk of losing valuable items.

SERVPRO staff cleaning Here’s a step-by-step guide on what to do when water floods your home or business.

A flood is a damaging occurrence that can make homeowners and tenants devastated. Floods can lead to a massive loss of valuable belongings. In worse cases, it may involve the loss of lives. For most businesses, flooding can cause significant damage that can make you lose more than you have ever gained in the company so far. 

While prevention is always better than cure, everyone needs to know what to do to save the day when this overwhelming incidence occurs. Here’s a step-by-step guide on what to do when water floods your home or business.

Step 1: Ensure your safety first.

The first thing to do when a flood comes threatening is to ensure your safety and every other member of your household. Staying safe might mean leaving the building immediately to a safe place nearby, taking valuable items that you would never want to lose as long as it is safe to do so.

Before you leave the building, ensure you turn off the power and take protective clothing such as rubber boots and gloves, which will be useful when you are returning to deal with the aftermath. Note that you don’t have to evacuate the property if the flooding is minimal. 

Step 2: Stop and remove water 

Before the flood becomes overwhelming, it is essential to find the water source coming into your building and make every attempt to stop the continual flow of water. Though this step might be somewhat challenging considering the pressure that comes with having a flood in your building, it is one of the best ways to stop the flood. 

After you might have successfully stopped the water's inflow, the next thing is to start removing the water that has already occupied your property. You can use buckets, bins, and hoses to drain the water.

Step 3: Dry out the building. 

After removing the water in the building, you will have to dry the place before moving in again. You can use an air conditioner or portable fans to dry all wet areas. Dehumidifiers are also one of the easiest ways of drying out a property.

Step 4: Clean up

After the whole building becomes dried up, it’s time to clean up the mess and rearrange it for living or business again. Note that you may need to remove drywall, flooring, and other things that the flood might have damaged. 

Step 5: Repairs

Indeed, the flood would have damaged some things in the building. Ensure that you do every necessary repair to make the property ready and conducive for use again. If the flood had soaked some electronics, you would need to fix them or replace them if the damage is beyond repairs. 

Floods can pose a lot of damages to homes and businesses, but an early response can help you reduce the amount of wear and lower the risk of losing most of your valuable belongings. Following the steps mentioned above will save you big from losing your business or homes to a flood.

The effect of a flood can be severe if not attended to quickly and efficiently. The most important thing for flood victims to prioritize is their safety. A professional mitigation and restoration team like SERVPRO of Citrus Heights/Roseville and Carmichael should handle the rest. 

When flood strikes start with safety and follow the steps below if safe to do so: 

SAFETY is the most important to keep in mind for victims of flood events. Start by removing everyone away from the affected property to a location outside the flood area. The best place would be a dry spot that is far from the property. Emergency services should be called in for immediate evacuation if water damage is a result of a natural cause.

The second step is to find out where the source of the flooding is in the situation when it is not naturally triggered. Controlling it from the source is a good way to prevent further damage. Stop the water at its source if it is safe to do so. 

Turn off the electricity supply that runs into the affected area if it is safe to do so. It helps to prevent situations of electrocution when water contacts electricity. If turning off the electricity is not safe or an easy task for you, call an electrician to do so. If safe to do so, document the affected areas with videos and images for your insurance company.

Wear protective gear before stepping into a flood-damaged area to prevent exposure to contaminated water and hazardous materials.

HVAC systems on the ground level Raise and/or floodproof your HVAC systems. Raising HVAC equipment will prevent costly damages.

Flooding happens often, and unless you have seen or experienced a flood you really have no idea what to expect. It is best to be prepared and understand ways to prevent costly damages with flooding at your business. Some questions come to mind, how to best be prepared and what to do in case a flood does happen? 

Common practices to prevent costly flood damage

Know your flood zone. You can look up your local flood zones at FEMA’s Flood Map Service Center or you may contact your city or county to learn where flood zones are in your local region.

  1. Learn the base flood elevation (BFE) for the location of your business to find out whether the elevation of your building’s lowest floor is above or below the BFE.
  2. Use dry floodproofing techniques. If your building is near a flood zone there are dry floodproofing techniques, you may follow to make sure your building has minimal damage in case of a flood.
  3. Ensure your company has flood insurance. Even if you are not in or near a high-risk flood area, flood insurance comes in handy and can be purchased through your private insurance company or through the federal National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Keep electrical components high and off the ground.
  4. Raise and/or floodproof your HVAC systems. Raising HVAC equipment will prevent costly damages.
  5. Ensure downspouts and slopes direct water away from your building and not toward the building.
  6. Landscape with native plants. Native plants can prevent soil erosion and help water drain better.
  7. Have backup power. Having backup power will enable air conditioning systems to still work in most cases. Air conditioners will help reduce humidity and moisture levels, this provided you fewer mold damages.
  8. Know where disconnect valves and cut-off points are for gas, water, and electricity. We can help locate these and document them for staff in case a flood emergency happens to your building your staff will be more prepared.

How Floods Start

2/25/2020 (Permalink)

Flood water high enough to cover a bench Flash floods come from heavy rain, ice or debris jams, and dam, or levee breaks.

Flooding is a concern all year long for Northern California regions. Flooding will usually occurs when there is a lot of rainfall in an area at one given time. Weather is not always the cause of a flood; they also occur when there is a failure from a water control structure like a levee or dam.

Flooding often occurs when rainfall or snow melting accumulates faster than soils can absorb or when rivers can’t carry the excess water away fast enough. The most common flood hazards in the local regions is from flash floods. 

Flash flooding happens at least 6 hours of the cause of the flood. Flash floods come from heavy rain, ice or debris jams, and dam, or levee breaks. Low-lying areas further away from heavy rain or large snowmelt are more susceptible to flooding than other areas.

Common means for flooding in the local Citrus Heights, Carmichael, and Roseville area is: 

  • River flooding often occurs when river levels are rising and these rivers overflow. River flooding often happens in dry areas.
  • Burn scars/debris flow flooding usually will occur after a wildfire. Vegetation burns away and soil properties are altered. This leaves the area with a bare ground unable to absorb the moisture that comes from rainfall. When a burn scar is rained upon the water runs across the surface to the lowest point of the ground.
  • Snowmelts from mountainous regions cause much of the flooding from the rivers in the local area. Once the snow melts and reaches the soil, the water doesn’t absorb properly because it is too much water for the soil. The snow melts and runs into rivers and lakes and gets to full, thus causing floods.
  • Dam or levees can break and cause major flooding. According to FEMA and the National Inventory of Dams (2007), there are over 80,000 dams in the United States and one-third of these dams can become a significant hazard if failure or mishap occurs from the structure. Dam failure and levee problems can happen with no warning at all. Causes of failure can come from natural causes like rainfall, landslides, earthquakes, or erosion by humans, etc.   

If your home or business experiences flooding a water mitigation and restoration company will have to assist in the damages. This is not something a home or business owner should take on themselves. 

The damage will need to be inspected right away. Water removal and extraction must begin right away to avoid more costly damages from other costly issues like that of mold. Once the area has been rid of the water, the drying and dehumidification process must begin. Know what to do and know who to call in case a water emergency occurs.

Tornadoes 

Most damages from tornadoes are caused by the high winds. Large damages happened in “tornado alley’ which is in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, and Missouri, however, California has tornadoes and property damage is expected in this case.

Lightening 

Lightening causes extensive damage. Lightning hits trees and the ground and is a common cause for wildfires. Fires break out and damage buildings, homes, and can cause power outages.

Floods

After a heavy rain, water will rise fast and at times the levees near local rivers and storm drains can’t handle it. Flash floods cause a lot of damage to homes, businesses, both exterior and interior.

When storm damage presents itself, it is important to contact your insurance and the right company to handle your mitigation and restoration needs. The quicker your insurance provider and restoration company is reached the fewer damages. It is imperative that damages are stopped at its source right away. A simple roof leak can lead to damages to your roof, ceiling, walls, flooring, and more.

What to Watch for if Lightning Strikes Your Home | SERVPRO® of Citrus Heights/Roseville

A strike of lightning to the ground may look majestic, but it is also one of the most dramatic displays of a thunderstorm’s power. Structural, electrical and fire damage are all common following a lightning strike, and it is important to know how to prevent these things from occurring.

The Background on Lightning

An electrical charge is at the heart of all thunderstorms, as well as the heart of the thunder and lightning they contain. Lightning bolts are the storm expending some of this energy, either across the clouds or toward the earth.

As the atmosphere is a poor conductor, lightning typically travels through an object to get to the ground. It also typically will cause damage to the object it passes through, and homes are no exception.

What to Check for After a Thunderstorm

A home being struck by lightning provides the perfect pathways for it, in the way of electrical wires and water pipes. This is why the ways lightning can damage a house leave very specific signs to look for:

1. Electrical damage. Reaching up to 500,000-degree temperatures, it is not unheard of for lightning to ignite a building on impact. However, it can also cause serious electrical damage, increasing the risk for a future fire to arise. If lightning has struck your home, have an electrician do an inspection for hot spots.

2. Electronic operation. A home’s electrical system is not designed to handle the voltage a lightning strike produces, which can cause serious damage to anything plugged into the wall. Check appliances and electronics after a strike, and install surge protectors as a prevention method.

3. Structural damage. Thunder is a result of lightning striking across the clouds, as the shock waves reverberate through the air. These powerful waves also exist when lightning strikes the ground, causing serious structural damage such as cracks in a home’s foundation. A thorough inspection should be done after each storm to evaluate damages.

If your home has been affected by storm damages or lightning-related fires, give us a call today! We are experts in damage cleanup and can restore your damage quickly.

Keeping Your Pets Warm During Cold and Rainy Seasons

2/28/2019 (Permalink)

With cold and rainy days ahead, it is important to not only keep yourself warm but also your pets.  Like us they can suffer from hypothermia and frost bite. Their paws are in direct contact with the ground and their ears are exposed but there are a few things you can do to make sure your furry friend is safe.

Pets living outside should have a dry and draft-free house where it can lie down comfortably but small enough to hold its body heat. It should be raised a few inches off the ground and have cedar shaving or straw. Make sure the entrance is not facing the wind.

Your pet’s food bowls should be switched to plastic. Your pet’s tongue might freeze to the bowl if it is metal.

When using anti-freeze make sure they are out of reach of your pet. Anti-freeze tastes sweet but is deadly to your pet. If they step in it, they might lick it off their paws. There are pet friendly products you can use.

Keep your pets safe in this cold weather.

Storms can be dangerous even after they have already passed. The damage they leave behind can leave unforeseen damages behind. Be sure to follow the tips below to make sure you and your family stay safe. They are very simple but can be extremely helpful during the next large storm.

Do not enter buildings that sustained structural damage.

Do not swim in flood waters.

Avoid using candles or open flames in doors.

Locate and keep your fire hydrant handy.

Try to keep your pet indoors and on a leash if they are outside.

Shut off the gas if you smell it.

Storms continue to be dangerous even after they have passed so be sure to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Exterior Pipe Safety Tips

2/28/2019 (Permalink)

Citrus Heights has seen lots of low temperatures. This could mean potential pipe breaks. Water is a liquid form but when it gets too cold outside, water freezes and expands. Whether your pipes are plastic or metal they can possibly break.

Most commonly swimming pool supply lines, outdoor hose bibs and water sprinkler lines are at high risk. Pipers in unheated interior areas such as attics, garages, or crawl spaces. Pipes that run against exterior walls are also at risk.

You can, however, take some steps to help prevent your pipes from freezing or worse, breaking. It is best to add insulation to your home. This will help keep your home, including the attic and crawl spaces, at warmer temperatures. You can also install products designed to keep your pipes warm, such as pipes sleeves.

If you need to be away from home, drain your water system before you go

Always identify the locations of shutoff valves so that you are prepared to stop the flow of water as soon as possible when a pipe bursts.

Flood Preparedness and Response

4/9/2018 (Permalink)

Storm can be dangerous they can create dangerous situations. They also can damage your property. It is important to be ready.

The first thing to find out is whether your home or property is prone to floods. You can ask your local public works about flood history.

If your home or property is prone to floods you can start by keeping emergency building materials. This would be plywood, sand bags, shovels, and plastic sheeting.

Also plan an evacuation route. You and your family should know the safest routes to shelters and out of harm’s way.

You should create an emergency supply kit. The kits should at least have these items:

  • Flashlight with batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Food and water are essential. The right cooking tools should also be included.
  • Keep cash and a credit card if possible.
  • A copy of local maps. During storms some electronic devices might not have service.

When considering storm emergency preparedness, it is helpful to follow the Five P’s of Evacuation.

People – Think of what a specific person or a pet might need in an energy.

Prescriptions – Consider keeping prescriptions as part of your emergency kit. Nothing would be worse than not being able to find necessary prescription and creating a life-threatening situation.

Papers – Make sure your important papers are in a safe area whether they be hard copies or digital copies.

Personal Needs – Clothing and feminine products should be kept as part of your emergency kit.

Priceless items – Secure priceless items in a safe spot. Although many things can be replaced some items may be irreplaceable.

The most important thing is your safety. Never compromise your safety during a storm. In the case that you and your family are separated during a storm be sure to have a communication plan in hand. Agree on a location to meet up.

You can count on SERVPRO for Flood Restoration

4/8/2017 (Permalink)

Count of SERVPRO of Carmichael for your water damage restoration.

The US knows all about floods. Every year, a major storm or hurricane (sometimes several) rampages along the coast and causes hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage. These incidents leave homeowners feeling helpless because it is tough to prevent water intrusion at such a depth and volume.

Fortunately, restoration teams like SERVPRO are on hand to pick up the pieces after flooding. While flood damage in Carmichael homes is unpleasant, it does not have to be permanent. We have all of the skills and tools that you need for effective repairs. We clean wet carpets (if not contaminated), scrub stained walls and eliminate bad smells.

Today, we are going to clear up some myths about residential flooding. So, keep reading to find out more about certified flood damage restoration.

Restoration is a Luxury
Whether your home is full of standing water or just residually wet after flooding, it is at risk of further damage. Where there is moisture, there is a risk of rust, rot, and mold. The difference between drying items yourself and having the experts do it is that we remove as much liquid as is technically possible. We remove all of the water that you cannot see with the naked eye; in the air, in your fabrics, in your HVAC system, etc. True restoration does begin with pumping out floodwater, but that is only the first step. We do this so we can get to the hidden sources of moisture. For SERVPRO, the job starts with drying on a molecular level, via dehumidifiers and air movers.

Restoration Means Drying
Drying is clearly the most important part of flood damage remediation. However, it is not the only service that we offer. In fact, our company provides a comprehensive restoration package. The aim is to try and bring your home back to its pre-flood condition, "Like it never even happened." So, our technicians may have to repaint, apply new plasterboard, and lift carpets to dry subflooring.

In the past, we have replaced damaged wood, supervised the removal of asbestos, and worked with a wide variety of insurance agents, contractors and professionals. Depending on the task, we may suggest a third party for repairs, SERVPRO partners with others to provide a seamless full service to you.

Real Experts Can Save Almost Anything
The thing to remember about flood repairs is that they depend on a large number of different factors. In many cases, the liquid is gray water. It is likely to contain debris, chemicals and bacteria, but we can dry and clean it and return items to their former condition. Unfortunately, this is not true of black water, high in hazardous materials. Black water contains sewage or highly toxic materials. We can clean non-porous items because the danger sits only on their surface. However, porous materials (curtains, carpets, drapes, clothing, soft toys, etc.) absorb toxins and require safe disposal. Where essential structural materials are involved, we can organize appropriate repairs.

SERVPRO of Carmichael offers a local service. We provide flood damage repairs to residents in the Carmichael, Citrus Heights and Roseville areas. Whether your flooding is an emergency or a minor problem, our technicians can solve it. Call us 24/7 at (916) 967-2500.

Floods are dangerous, be careful!

Flooding is the process by which normally dry land becomes inundated with water from rivers, lakes, oceans and streams. Flooding occurs near rivers, coastal areas with overly saturated soil.

Flooding can create a range of issues including damage to personal property, buildings, bridges, and roads. One should expect service disruptions, managing injuries and potential death.

Due to the spontaneous nature of flooding, your best protection is preparation.

Here are some flood tips to consider:

  • Avoid walking through floodwaters.
  • Just six inches of water can knock you down, and two feet can sweep your vehicle away.
  • If there is a change of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground. Flash floods are the number one cause of weather-related deaths.
  • If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water.
  • Avoid camping or parking along streams, rivers, and creeks during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning.

Remember your safety and the safety of those around you depends on you knowing where to go and how to reach higher ground on foot.

Be Prepared for the January Micro Storm In Citrus Heights

1/6/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Advice: Be Prepared for a Micro Storm in the Citrus Heights Area

SERVPRO Is Prepared to Help You If Emergency Services Are Needed Following the Micro Storm

A severe weather pattern, carrying torrential rains, ice, and snow, at higher elevations, will pummel the West Coast for up to a week beginning January 7, 2017. Significant amounts of precipitation threaten the most dangerous flooding the northern portion of the Central Valley has experienced since at least 1997 if not 1986. Drought-lowered reservoirs may overflow and aquifers will become supersaturated, unable to absorb the rain predicted to fall. Up to 16 inches of rain are expected, triggering widespread flooding and mudslides. Save SERVPRO's number on your phone right now to ensure a call that delivers the full menu of solutions we offer if storm damage and flooding jeopardize your Sacramento area home and safety over the next week.
 
Residents of Citrus Heights must be ready for this micro storm, protecting the outside perimeter of your property with sandbags provided by their municipality or home improvement outlets if you live on the floodplain. Safeguard the contents of your home by moving items to the upper levels of your dwelling, or raising them off the floor with pallets or shelving. Cover valuables and porous furnishings with plastic sheeting, for an added measure of protection, should roofs or windows fail during the micro storm. Check storm drains on the streets near you property before the heavy rain begins. If leaves, branches, or other debris block them, take the time and effort to clear the curbside grids. This debris removal will help the sewer system in your neighborhood reduce standing water, a proactive measure that takes a little time to do, yet may provide big benefits.
 
Visit our website for other crucial tips to ready your home and family for the demands of the coming storm, and any damage that follows. Prepare mentally, including devising a plan to evacuate your home safely should officials demand you move and the conditions require it. SERVPRO has weathered severe storms and flooding in your area before, standing ready to formulate an immediate plan for your property if the worst happens. We are monitoring the micro storm and will mobilize a Disaster Recovery Team to assist you and your neighbors as the damage reports begin accumulating.

How Flash Floods Can Start In Roseville

11/9/2016 (Permalink)

Flash floods are, as the name implies, difficult to predict and often deadly in their intensity.

Flash Floods

Flash floods have become increasingly common in America, due in no small part to the seemingly endless growth of civilization and infrastructure. Flash floods are, as the name implies, difficult to predict and often deadly in their intensity. There are numerous ways that flash floods can form, many of which are caused or fueled by human development. Typically, you'll have a few hours' notice before a flash flood hits, at most, so take warnings seriously and don't get caught in a dangerous situation.

Saturated Or Dry Soil
The most common cause of flash flooding remains rooted in the soil conditions of an area being hit by a major storm. If the soil is particularly dry or saturated with recent rainfall, it may be overwhelmed with the addition of more water, forcing the creation of runoff and leading to large-scale flood damage in Roseville. Especially with drought conditions, these types of floods can happen relatively often.

Overflowing Dams And Infrastructure
Another cause for flash floods originates in dams and other water-based infrastructure. Should the water overflow from a large structure such as a dam, it can come flowing out in high enough volumes to cause a flash flood. This may also happen with natural banks and river bends as well, so be mindful if your home is near a water source. This has been a problem in Roseville's past, and multiple floods have formed in this way in Sacramento since the city was founded.

Street Overflow
Smaller flash floods can occur sporadically on some streets if drainage infrastructure is incorrectly placed or maintained. During torrential rains, asphalt will not absorb any water, and if the drains can't adequately dispose of extra water, it often has nowhere to go but nearby residential lots.

Being watchful for unexpected storms and flash flood warnings could save your life, so be sure to take any future warnings seriously. SERVPRO of Citrus Heights / Roseville is always ready to help clean up and restore your home after the damage is done. Call us at (916) 966-2601.
