Water Damage Chino & Chino Hills Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Home Cleanup and Restoration! An immediate response to flooding helps to minimize the damage as well as the cleaning and restoration costs.

A home can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Homes with basements are especially prone to flooding because they often built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Chino home 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

The water damage restoration process

Water Damage The water damage restoration process Water damage restoration specialist of SERVPRO

SERVPRO has a six-step restoration process that all clients are brought through. This process assures that the home or office is always restored to a clean, sanitary state as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Chino / Chino Hills water damage restoration clients have had this six-step process applied to their water damage disasters.


The six-step process is:


1) Initial contact


SERVPRO is proud to offer 24-hour emergency response. Here at SERVPRO, we understand that, when dealing with water damage emergencies, every minute counts. When you call, the SERVPRO representative will ask specific questions regarding your particular water damage emergency.


2) Inspection and assessment


The restoration process will officially begin with a detailed assessment of the damage by a SERVPRO professional. There are different classification levels of contamination that will determine what steps are required to complete the restoration.


3) Water extraction/removal


The water extraction process will remove the majority of the water from the home or office. If extensive restoration is needed, SERVPRO can conduct a “move out” to safely and efficiently move out belongings. SERVPRO professionals will inspect and determine if carpet or carpet padding will need to be replaced.


4) Drying/dehumidification


After the water removal process, floors and walls will need to be dried and dehumidified fully to prevent warping or potential mold damage. Using specialized equipment, SERVPRO professionals will remove the last trace amounts of moisture in the home or office.


5) Cleaning/sanitizing


After extracting the water and fully drying the surfaces, SERVPRO professionals will clean the surfaces as well as belongings like furniture and personal items that may have been damaged by the water. Servrpo professionals will also deodorize with industrial scrubbers and fogging equipment.


6) Restoration


The final step in the process is restoration, which may include things like minor repair to drywall, installing new carpet, or other reconstruction.
