Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro aims for five-star reviews in all that we do. Here are some recent Google reviews from water damage customers.

“Ever Cortez and Garrett Cody were prompt, informative, professional, and personable. They were highly responsive and accommodating to my schedule and needs. We were referred to them through USAA, and I honestly don’t know what we would have done without them. The water damage in our home was pretty extensive and Ever and Garrett helped alleviate all of the stress of this huge (unexpected) project. I would 100% recommend SERVPRO, and I hope you are lucky enough to have Ever and Garrett called to your home!” Erica Johnson

“We have been working with SERVPRO, whom we were referred to via our insurance company, due to a shower leak that flooded through our ceiling and into our downstairs area. Our main point of contact and technician has been Garrett. We are so impressed with both him and the other members of the remediation crew. Garret is very knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to work with. He has made the process as stress-free as possible for us, answering our questions, explaining his process, and always arriving on time. I also want to shout out to Mario and Miguel, who did the demolition of the waterlogged areas of the house. They worked quickly and quietly, were professional, and their clean up after they completed their work was top-notch. We highly recommend SERVPRO of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro and their team.” Amy Gregory

Supply line leaks are a common cause of water damage. Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro typically arrives onsite within four hours of your call for help. Water is invasive, so we act fast to mitigate and restore areas compromised by water damage to avoid more costly and time-consuming repairs. We use powerful water extraction equipment to remove the water from the damaged area. After the water is extracted, we set up air movers and air blowers to eliminate any excess moisture from the air. We document the entire drying process and can help you with the insurance process and paperwork.

Water Extraction Equipment

We use powerful extraction equipment to speed the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal

Drying Equipment

We use industrial-strength air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the remaining moisture from ceilings, walls, and floors. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air

Water Intrusion Prevention Tips for San Ysidro Businesses?

The rooftop of a commercial building is shown. We restore commercial water damage 24-hours a day in San Diego County!

Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro has been restoring water damage for businesses in San Ysidro for many years. Here are some water intrusion tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety for protecting your business from heavy rain:

Inspect and clean the roof drainage system

Do this at least twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. This includes all gutters, interior drains, and scuppers.

Trim trees

Keep trees trimmed and away from the roof to prevent branches from rubbing against the roof and leaves from accumulating and clogging the drainage system

Remove debris

    • Remove loose objects and accumulated debris—including anything left by contractors—from the roof that could end up in the drainage system
    • Also, check under and around all roof-mounted equipment, satellite dishes, antennas, and solar panels for debris that could disrupt the drainage system’s water flow or cause ponding

Inspect roof drains

Check for, and repair cracks around roof drains.

Re-check drainage systems

  • After severe weather, check all drainage systems for leaks and ensure they are properly secured and operating
  • When re-roofing, ensure that all drains, scuppers, and gutters are returned to their original operating conditions

Pacific Hurricane Season in Otay Mesa?

A Pacific hurricane is seen from a weather satellite. We are trusted leaders in storm damage restoration in San Diego County!

Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in San Diego County. The Pacific hurricane season beings on May 15 each year and ends on November 30. Only one Pacific hurricane (or tropical cyclone) ever came close to hitting landfall in Southern California. Seven tropical cyclones have brought gale-force winds to the Southwestern United States. In most cases, we experienced tropical storms resulting from the downgraded hurricanes. 

1858 – San Diego hurricane

1939 – Long Beach tropical storm that made landfall near San Pedro

1939 – San Pedro, remnants of Tropical Storm Jennifer-Katherine

1963 – Hurricane Emily, downgraded to a tropical storm

1965 – Hurricane Joanne, downgraded to a tropical storm

1972 – Hurricane Kathleen, downgraded to a tropical storm

1976 – Hurricane Nora, downgraded to a tropical storm

Heavy rain was the only effect of most of these cyclones. The exception was Hurricane Kathleen, which caused flooding and devastation in Ocotillo, California, killing several people.

Damaged Downspout Causing Water Damage in Otay Mesa Home?

5/4/2022 (Permalink)

A downspout attached to the side of a home is severely dented. We restore water damage 365 days a year in San Diego County!

After the last big storm in San Diego County, our local teams in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro responded to many water damage emergencies. My attic started taking on water, and when I went to inspect, I saw that a tree limb had blown into the side of my home and damaged and blocked the downspout that allowed the rainwater to back up and saturate my roof located next to the rain gutter system. Here are some tips for repairing and protecting your home’s exterior from water damage:

  • Caulk and seal windows to guard against water seepage
  • Inspect your roof for missing, damaged and aging shingles and make necessary repairs
  • Check your downspouts. Remove debris that may have accumulated in downspouts and rain gutters. Position downspouts so that they direct water away from the house.
  • Check sprinklers and irrigation systems to be sure they are not creating water damage to the walls and foundations of the house. Turn off and drain outside faucets to protect against frozen pipes.
  • Install gutter guards to prevent gutter clogs and keep water flowing away from the house instead of accumulating on the roof
