A child is cooling off with pouring water during a Santa Ana Wind event. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego County.

Santa Ana Winds begin in the year's cooler months. They being in October and end in May. These strong, hot seasonal winds are known to cause property damage. Last season the winds caused severe property damage and overturned a big semi-truck. SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW responds to storm damage emergencies in Sherman Heights each year. Here are some interesting facts about Santa Ana Winds from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA):

Santa Ana Winds

  • Occur when air from a region of high pressure over the dry, desert region of the southwestern United States flows westwards towards low pressure located off of the California coast
  • These dry winds flow east to west through the mountain passes in Southern California
  • These winds are most common from October to May
  • These winds feel warm or hot because as the cool desert air moves down the side of the mountain, it is compressed, causing the air temperature to rise
  • These strong winds can cause major property damage
  • These strong winds increased wildfire risk due to the dryness of the winds and their speed

Halloween Safety Tips for East Village?

10/4/2021 (Permalink)

Trick-or-Treaters are shown. We restore fire damage in San Diego County.

The National Fire Protection Association is urging everyone to consider fire safety during Halloween celebrations. SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW responds to fire damage emergencies in East Village during the year and offer these safety tips:

  • Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.
  • When using electrical lighting to decorate your home, make sure it is used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
  • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. Make sure all smoke alarms are working.

For families still planning to attend Halloween parties or go trick-or-treating:

  • When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing fabric that could come in contact with open flames or other heat sources
  • Teach children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costumes

A very dirty little white dog is shown. We deep clean and deodorize pet messes in San Diego County.

Canine chaos reigns supreme in Encanto.

My little dog Smokey looks so harmless, but when he sees a mouse or rat, he goes berserk! I was giving him a bath outside when he spotted a mouse by the woodpile. He jumped out of the bath and started chasing the little mouse through the garden and into my house. Yikes! By the time I got him and the mouse outside, my house looked like a disaster zone. My couch and rugs were spotted with mud and that smelly dirty wet dog scent permeated the house. Yuck!

I called SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW and they sent a team out to clean my furniture and floors. They neutralized the dirty dog smell and now you would never know my house had been a doggy disaster zone.
