Major Storm Cloud

This is a huge storm cloud that can cause major destruction. It can cause some serious damage to anything in it's path. Immediately after the storm passes, if you have damage to your property, SERVPRO of Glendora / San Dimas can make it Like it never even happened.

Man Against Nature In So. Cal.

Southern California goes through a predictable Winter Rain and Summer Fire cycle every year.

The Fall and Winter Rains combined with mild temperatures provide a great growing season for plants, and, the arid climate and Summer heat then quickly dries out the ground cover making it perfect fuel for fires in the foothills.

When the fires burn off the ground cover, the soil loses the stabilizing plant roots.  The soil is then easily washed away as mud during the following Winter runoff. 

K-rail, sand bags and other barriers are set up in the Winter of 2016 to block the flow of mud in a wash above Melcanyon Road in Duarte, Calif., a threatened area below a San Gabriel Mountains burn area known as the Fish Fire.  

As a "Large Loss" Franchise SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas & Irwindale/Baldwin Park have the resources to help whole communities with Emergency Services when Southern California needs help digging out. 

Fire Bomber over Southern California Fire

Being an arid climate, California annually experiences "Fire Storms" that can start in the Springtime and extend through the Fall months.

Fire Storms in Southern California devastate millions in private and public property every year.  SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas & Irwindale/Baldwin Park can help recover when restoration is an option. 

The plane in the picture is spreading red fire retardant (Foscheck) over a burn site in the Southern California foothills during the 2016 Fire Season.  Fire retardants work three ways: removing heat, coating the surface (so the fuel can't find oxygen), or by diluting the air (oxygen) near the fire.  

The men and women who specialize as Pilots flying these Fire Bombers are already out there doing their job again in June, 2017

Not all Firefighters arrive at the scene in a red or green truck.....

San Dimas in February

San Dimas Canyon Golf Course is looking especially green after the large amount of storms that have been berating the Southern California area for the past few months. SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas is thankful for the influx of water repairs, but is also grateful for our foothills no longer looking brown and dead. 

Storm Damage Calls for Unusual Drying

Sometimes when a storm hits and rain water begins accumulating, it can affect not just the inside of a house, but the underneath. SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas provided drying for flooding occurring under the floor of a home due to a storm. 

After the Storms

After many days of intense rains, flooding, mudslides, and hail, it was a clear day in San Dimas looking over the foothills. SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas sales car out and about in the community under a blue sky. 

Southern California Rain

Southern California began the New Year with an abundance of rain storms. The end of the five year drought was brought with overflowing storm drains, dark clouds, and damage. SERVPRO Glendora/San Dimas was prepared and offered storm damage cleanup and restoration services to the community.
