SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Shasta County crews have been busy cleaning up damage from fallen trees and flood waters due to recent storms.

Trees have fallen all over the county with some falling on homes, which is keeping restoration service providers very busy.

One of the crews, ServPro Restoration Services, responded to a call of a tree that fell on a house.

They said incidents like this have become increasingly common this winter season with snow, wind and rain.

"We are super-busy. We're seeing a lot of trees falling down on houses. And now with the massive amounts of rain, we're seeing flooding. And so we're going around and using our moisture meters and making sure that the flood waters aren't coming inside the houses," said Amanda Foley of ServPro Restoration Services. 

Foley said it is important to patch up holes in your roof right away to prevent water from getting in and it causing more damage. She says they also have infrared cameras that can look to see if water is possibly seeping in through walls.

Foley also said if you do have water in your home, it's best to have it extracted by a professional within 48-hours or dangerous mold could form.
