Storm clouds obscure the sun. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in San Bernardino County.

Our Chino/Chino Hills team responds to storm damage emergencies every year in El Prado. Strong winds and winter storms can cause damage to structures, so we advise residents and businesses to inspect their properties for visible signs of damage after any major storm or high wind event. Here are some of the indicators of storm damage:

  • Debris on the roof
  • Dents in your siding
  • Clogged or broken rain gutters
  • Visible damage to the roof facia
  • Visible signs of the roof flashing
  • Water spots on your ceiling or walls
  • Cracked, dented, or lifted roof shingles
  • Missing roof shingles

Sometimes storm damage is not readily apparent, so be sure to check the attic space and look for any wet spots indicating roof damage, and look for leaks by searching for any traces of water on the floor or insulation. Listen for any dripping sounds that will confirm a water leak. Unclog  rain gutters immediately and check downspouts to ensure water can drain away from the home's foundation.

Dead Christmas Tree Fire Avoided in Chino?

1/3/2023 (Permalink)

Dead Christmas trees lay on the ground waiting to be recycled. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Bernardino County.

Our Chino/Chino Hills team wishes everyone in Chino a Happy New Year! Is your dead Christmas tree still in the house? The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reminds residents to remove their trees after Christmas or when the tree is dry. Here are some tips from the NFPA for preventing Christmas tree fires:

After Christmas

Get rid of the tree after Christmas or when it is dry. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage or placed outside against the house. Check with your local community to find a recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer.

Christmas Tree Fire Facts

  • Electrical problems cause almost one-third of home Christmas tree fires
  • Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious
  • A heat source too close to the tree causes more than one in every five fires

Chino Christmas Tree Recycling Services

Christmas trees will be collected beginning December 26 at no additional charge. Here's more information from Waste Management:

  • Trees longer than four feet tall must be cut in half
  • Please remove all decorations, including tinsel, lights, ornaments, and tree stands
  • Flocked trees will be collected by the trash truck but cannot be recycled

PLACING THE TREE 

  • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2 inches from the base of the trunk 
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights 
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit 
  • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. 

LIGHTING THE TREE 

  • Use lights that a qualified testing laboratory lists. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use. 
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect.

Check wall air conditioners 

If your property uses wall air conditioners: 

  • Ensure the size of internal drain pipe is adequate and water is flowing freely 
  • Ensure there is proper caulking and weather stripping around the unit 
  • Ensure the unit is installed with a 1/4-inch bubble tilt toward the outside 

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
