SERVPRO drying equipment being used in long water damaged hallway Are you equipped to handle a water loss emergency? SERVPRO is!

SERVPRO has a Skilled Team and Advanced Equipment to Ensure Your Santa Monica Business Gets the Water Damage Repair It Needs

Whenever a plumbing issue or a burst pipe sends a mass of water throughout your Santa Monica Business, you need prompt action from trained mitigation and restoration professionals. The last circumstance you want is for your business to halt or for secondary damage to set in. No matter the scope or breadth of the venture, our team at SERVPRO is ready to spring into action with water removal and drying services.

How Quickly Does Water Extraction Work?

When called for commercial water damage repair in Santa Monica, we take the time to scrutinize the loss zone. Each job is unique, so the time that it takes depends on a variety of factors:

  • The amount of standing water present
  • The surface area of all impacted spaces
  • The total of all semi-porous and porous materials affected
  • Placement of fixtures and equipment within your commercial space

Because secondary damage and the onset of mildew and mold growth happens in as little as 24 to 48 hours after the loss, we get to work fast on cleanup and moisture detection. Crews get to work quickly to remove standing water so that we can use a pre-determined amount of airflow and dehumidification equipment to execute the drying phase.

For a packing facility or warehouse with large open floorplans, water is known to collect even without noticeable pooling. Our IICRC-certified technicians precisely know what to look for so that we never underestimate the depth of the water loss or the amount of equipment necessary to facilitate drying.

SERVPRO of Santa Monica/Venice Beach has you covered when you need water damage repair in your commercial space. From extraction and drying to controlled demolition and sanitizing, we get to work fast to make it “Like it never even happened.” Call us 24/7 at (310) 395-9050.

What Does Fire Damage Restoration Involve?

6/11/2020 (Permalink)

Heavy smoke and soot on fire damaged walls Wildfires are common to Southern California. SERVPRO has the know-how to remove and soot and smoke damage from your home.

Fire Damage Restoration Services in West Los Angeles Focus on Cleaning Up Harmful Soot Residues and Eliminating Unpleasant Smells

The hot, dry late summer and early fall months in Southern California often mean an increased risk of wildfires. These fires are especially troublesome in the brushy hills just to the north of West Los Angeles. As brush fires in this wilderness area burn, winds can quickly spread the flames into neighboring communities. Also, since residential zones are quite dense in this part of the state, fires often spread rapidly from house to house once they reach local neighborhoods. Fortunately, when such natural disasters occur, there are area services that can help. 

How are Interior Surfaces and Personal Property Affected by a House Fire?

Fire damage restoration in West Los Angeles primarily involves cleaning soot residues off affected surfaces and neutralizing odors related to them. The burning process is a chemical reaction that produces and deposits multiple smelly compounds on surfaces around your home. These foul-smelling gaseous and solid mixtures are responsible for most damage to materials remaining after a fire. They often impregnate structural elements and household items with odorous particles. Many of these particles are acidic and can, over time, discolor materials and corrode metallic surfaces. Some of the many things affected by such damage are:

  • HVAC systems
  • Structural elements like floors, walls, and ceilings
  • Various household fixtures
  • Attic rafters and insulation
  • Furnishings and other personal property

To prevent further harm to these affected parts of your home, you need the assistance of a proper fire-damaging cleanup and restoration company like SERVPRO.

What are the Ways SERVPRO Cleans Up Fire-Related Residues?

As previously explained, fire-related residues are responsible for most of your home’s post-fire issues. Therefore, to fully restore your residence to its original condition, they must be appropriately cleaned up. SERVPRO employs a variety of means to do just that. These include:

  • Removing non-grease residues by pressure washing impacted structural elements
  • Using dry cleaning sponges to wipe away non-grease smoke deposits
  • Cleaning up greasy residues with white vinegar solutions or tri-sodium phosphate (TSP)
  • Employing the peroxide active cleaning technique when remediating delicate, heavily soiled surfaces
  • Eliminating charring and heavy residues with scrapers, wire brushes, or abrasive blasting methods

In these various ways, our trained technicians can often successfully remove most types of damaging odorous residues from your home.

What Other Gear is Used to Remove Airborne and Material-Embedded Odors?

Neutralizing the unwanted smells of fire damage usually requires the use of advanced tools. This equipment is not readily available to the public and requires the right training to use it effectively. Some of the professional-grade gear SERVPRO employs to eliminate fire-related smells includes:

  • Deodorant injection devices that neutralize odors in upholstered items and carpeting
  • Ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers to deodorize affected areas of your house
  • Thermal foggers that aerosolize deodorants to counteract foul smells
  • Pressure sprayers for eliminating odors emanating from structural elements
  • High-velocity box fans and air movers to rapidly ventilate your residence and remove airborne smells
  • Ozone generators that counteract odor-causing particles with ozone gas
  • Scrubbers that filter out odorous indoor particles and pull in clean outdoor air
  • Vaportek systems that aerosolize natural oils to neutralize fire-related smells
  • HVAC cleaning systems to remove soot residues from various ventilation conduits

Our technicians, using all these high-tech tools, are generally able to remove the most harmful odorous residues from your home. In doing so, they help prevent fire-related smells from continuing to circulate throughout your residence.

As you experience the seemingly endless hot sunny days of Southern California, remember that they come with a cost. Months of dry, cloudless days eventually lead to brush fires in the hills surrounding West Los Angeles. These blazes can start without much warning and rapidly spread into the densely populated nearby communities. Once in these residential areas, fires can quickly engulf multiple residences and do extensive damage in minutes. The destruction caused by these natural disasters is unpredictable and can vary significantly within an impacted zone. Some homes may be total losses, while other neighboring properties are minimally affected.

Although it is rarely possible to prevent a wildfire from damaging your home, companies like SERVPRO can help you clean up in their aftermath. Our experts can effectively remove smell-producing soot residues that can cause adverse health effects and harm household surfaces. In eliminating these substances, SERVPRO protects your home’s interior and its contents from discoloration and corrosion. We also help prevent the future recirculation of unpleasant fire damage odors throughout your home.    

With all that said, if a wildfire ever impacts your residence, help is available. Call SERVPRO of Santa Monica/Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050.

I Need Help to Restore My Home After Storm Flood Damage. Who Do I Call?

6/1/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO restoration equipment inside SERVPRO truck Did your home flood? Call SERVPRO for fast remediation.

Call SERVPRO to Eliminate the Storm Flood Damage in Your Venice Beach Residence

Flooding is a big deal in Venice Beach and other parts of the United States. The National Severe Storms Laboratory reports that flooding causes damage worth more than 5 billion dollars per year in the U.S.A. Flooding causes more destruction than any other event related to severe weather, and after such an incident, you need the help of SERVPRO to recover.

What are the consequences of flooding in homes?

Storm flood damage in your Venice Beach residence can have severe consequences to the building’s overall structure. Therefore, it is imperative to determine the full extent of the destruction because misdiagnoses can cause additional expenses and future problems. Floodwater poses various health and safety risks if not extracted quickly. They include:

  • Electrical damage and risks
  • Contaminated drinking water
  • Disease and sanitary hazards from standing water
  • Defunct sewage and drainage systems
  • Dry and wet rot
  • Mold infestation

Standing water can start soaking into the construction of your home, and this can increase the complexity, the time frame, and expense of drying your home.

How can you provide a solution to the flooding issue in the home?

You can trust SERVPRO technicians do their best to restore our home to its preloss state. The issue with flood restoration involves more than clearing up the water and drying a house. Water can cause additional problems like deterioration of building fabric. We can extract all the water from your home using powerful pumps before we strip out affected materials. After removing water and affected materials, we start the drying process using air moving and dehumidifying equipment. We also use moisture detection tools to monitor the drying process and stop precisely at the right time.

How can you sanitize my home effectively?

Flood restoration projects involve contaminated water. When dealing with category three water damage, our team wears suitable personal protective equipment like full-body suits, waterproof boots, nitrile gloves, and heavy-duty work gloves to stay safe from exposure to contamination. We also establish engineering controls to prevent contamination from spreading to the areas of a home that are not contaminated. Our technicians can use antimicrobial agents such as germicides and disinfectants to prevent the development of microorganisms or to stop or limit their growth. Germicides and disinfectants destroy about ninety-nine percent of the organisms they contact.

After the unfortunate event of storm flood damage in your Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, or Marian Del Rey home, call SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050 to offer remediation and restoration services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Let the Professionals Remediate the Fire Damage in Your Santa Monica Home

5/18/2020 (Permalink)

Room with two windows and soot covering the walls, ceiling and floor Even when contained to a small area, fire damage can be extensive.

Fire Damage Experts in Santa Monica Talk About the Importance of Cleaning and Restoration

One of the most recurrent types of insurance claims that occur in Santa Monica has to do with restoring your property after something burns. Even the smallest blaze can cause your house to suffer from extensive fire damage. Even with small fires, partially combusted particles in the form of smoke can travel throughout your building. Calling in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO can help you when mitigating smoke-related issues.

When working with you on your fire damage project in Santa Monica, our SERVPRO technicians know that cleaning and restoration services can reduce your insurance claim costs. The most expensive option for your insurance adjuster is a replacement. When an item is extremely damaged, it must be disposed of and replaced with a new one at the expense of your insurance provider. Cleaning and restoring things can help save them from having to be replaced, thus saving you and your insurance company money in the long run. 

Another option when restoring your burnt building materials and contents is resurfacing or refinishing. In certain situations, it is possible to remove the charred section of an item with sanding or sandblasting and resurfacing by staining or painting the object. We can repaint structural surfaces, and we can recover upholstered contents. Your wood contents are restorable. However, resurfacing and refinishing items can also become very costly if there are many affected items.

On the other hand, cleaning and restoration services are usually only a fraction of the cost of replacement or resurfacing. Our SERVPRO technicians often can apply the principles and elements of cleaning to restore materials to preloss condition and lessen the loss expense of the fire claim.

The first step we can take when mitigating your fire and smoke-related issues is to inspect your entire structure for potential problems carefully. Once we locate all of the smoke residues present, we can then figure out what type of soot and soils exist. Next, once we know what kind of residue we are working with, we identify the various surfaces that are affected so that we can pick the best cleaning procedure.

If your house Spaulding Square, Central Hollywood, or Weho ever gets affected by smoke residues call SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050. We can restore your home to the way it was before, "Like it never even happened."

Can Commercial Water Damage Ruin Pawn Shops' Reputations in West Los Angeles?

5/11/2020 (Permalink)

A blue and black open pawn shop sign. Customers rely on your pawn shop to purchase items or to provide them with cash when the need arises. Call SERVPRO right away after damage.

Team SERVPRO Professionally Remediates Your Water Damaged Shop

At times, West Los Angeles residents rely on the money gained from placing valuable items into pawn at your shop. While many intend to use this as a way to sell their items, others plan on returning later to claim their possessions. Protecting these items from damage until other customers buy them or their original owners return for them protects your investment and your reputation.

When businesses sustain accidents that cause commercial water damage in West Los Angeles, they can easily lose their inventory. Such a loss can easily make many businesses fail, but when that inventory's ownership partially belongs to others, the need to protect that inventory significantly increases. SERVPRO hires individuals who then dedicate substantial amounts of time to learning the latest restoration techniques and methods, which prepares them for the task of earning different IICRC certificates.

Being a business with customers who hold responsibilities to their own clients, we understand your position when water damage or other problems threaten to bring harm to the inventory within your facility. Our staff receives training that prepares them to handle a variety of situations. Restoring a business' interior while working alongside any employees present and protecting the inventory is our purpose when mitigating water damage in a business setting.

After we arrive and before we can begin working, we must determine the cause of the water damage. Wherever water entered your building in the past can continue to happen, negating any of our efforts. We remove the possibility of any additional moisture gaining entry and begin working. We use moisture meters to determine the wetness of a section of material, and when possible, dry these things out. However, when a building's water damage began months or years ago, many materials become unsuitable for restoration. Only replacements can suffice, both for aesthetics and safety.

The display cases and shelving units can become affected by water, much in the same manner that it can affect the structure of your building. We carefully detail these, ensuring they come clean and ready once again for holding any saleable inventory. While much of your stock most likely comes from recent years, whenever our technicians encounter possible antiques, they know to discuss their care with you or your designated staff.

Cleaning carpeting can remove much of the odors related to water damage, as well, but when they persist, our Odor Control Technician (OCT) uses either hydroxyl or ozone generating machines, and at times, relies on thermal fogging for powerful smells. When dry rotting affects carpeting, our Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician (RRT) helps advise our customers on the available options to protect their floor covering.

Restoring businesses in our communities, including Ocean Park and Marina Del Rey, SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach wants to help your pawn shop flourish and maintain its flawless reputation as a trusted business. If water damage seems to affect your transactions, contact our 24-hour service line at (310) 395-9050 so we can assist you.

Water Damage in Santa Monica Gets Worse without Professional Mitigation

When your residence in Santa Monica contains a leaking pipe, it is more than just a simple nuisance. This water must go somewhere. It does not just disappear and become a non-problem. Water that escapes a water line seeps into any absorbent materials and slowly evaporates into your home's air.

Excess humidity in your Santa Monica house's interior can exacerbate water damage and help it spread to other areas of your home. Moisture that ends up in your HVAC system can allow microbes to flourish and colonize in other areas of your home and not only in the ductwork. Water vapor can also make it more difficult for systems to achieve the desired effect. While reaching the temperature you set on your thermostat may occur, the way the air feels can significantly differ on your skin. RH relative humidity at below 65% offers a more comfortable interior ambiance.

SERVPRO technicians make sure that each home they work on receives every benefit of their training and experience. We work hard to detect every bit of water that escapes from the leaking water line and get it removed. Wherever it seeped into or condensed on, it is revealed by our water detection equipment. We use infrared imaging cameras to discover slight changes in the temperature of walls and other surfaces, and our pinpoint meters show us how much moisture content any particular structure holds.

When leaks still exist, SERVPRO technicians can repair smaller-scale plumbing issues and save you the added expense of a plumber's visit. When larger ones occur, we have partners who work with us, helping keep your costs more manageable. We handle each home like it was our own – with dedication and the implementation of our expertise. We want to mitigate any water damage and help get it restored to its previous condition, “Like it never even happened.”

Wherever materials sustain water damage, replacements are in order. We remove damaged areas and clean the area up, readying it for restoration work. Discovering microbial infestation occurs at this point in some homes, but we can remediate such problems, saving you the hassle of dealing with another situation. Often, just cleaning the area suffices. Without any water to reactivate the problem, installation of new materials can occur on schedule.

SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach regularly serves those in the Ocean Park and Marina Del Rey areas, as well as the majority of West Los Angeles. When water damage threatens your home, and your water bill every month, call us at (310) 395-9050. Our 24-hour service line is available every day of the year.

Is Water Damage in West Los Angeles Restaurants Staining Profits?

Do Not Let Permanent Water Damages Stain Your West Los Angeles Restaurant

When water damage hits a restaurant in West Los Angeles, it can sometimes be a race against time to get the issue repaired and damages restored before losing any extra business. Customers notice the signs of water damage quickly in most service sector businesses, even if any leaks or floods are long taken care of and any water has dried up. The damages left behind can be a permanent reminder of what may have happened in the past and, to customers' eyes, a sign of a less trustworthy business. SERVPRO can help to repair and reverse these damages and more to stop your establishment from bleeding business.

Carpet Warping

One of the most long-lasting and apparent signs of water damage in many West Los Angeles restaurants is the presence of shrunken or warped carpets in the business. Water causes most types of carpeting to expand when wet then shrink back when drying, sometimes creating bubbles or tearing on seams and tacks strips as they do so. We can help you to repair the damages or mitigate costs by keeping replacements to a minimum.

Staining and Discoloration

Many things cause discoloration from water damage, including the presence of contaminants in the water and the ability for colors to bleed from one material to another when both surfaces are soaked. Regardless of the cause, SERVPRO technicians are trained to help restore original colors or refinish a surface to eliminate any visible damages caused by the water incident.

Mold Growth

Santa Monica's Commercial Flood Damage Technicians Explain Drying Principles

Unlike most other consequences of water damage, mold growth can pose a direct threat to your business. Health codes may sometimes be tight when spores are found in a local restaurant, since the presence of some fungal species may cause health effects for employees and customers alike. We conduct full mold remediation treatments and can implement preventative measures to keep mold out of your establishment in the future.

If a severe thunderstorm ever hits the region, your coffee shop located in downtown Santa Monica could potentially receive damage. Several different factors and conditions created by storms pose risks to your business' property. Wind can blow rocks or tree branches into your building creating holes for rainwater to enter. Excessive rains often come down quickly causing the outside of your shop to flood. Once the water levels on the outside of your store get deep, it is possible that muddy water will find its way into your coffee shop lobby.

Excessive moisture inside your coffee shop can ruin business for you if the problem is not treated quickly. When mitigating commercial flood damage in Santa Monica, our SERVPRO technicians complete the required work so that we disrupt your business functions as little as possible. We know that keeping your coffee shop operating during the restoration process is essential in keeping the loss of revenue to a minimum. In some cases, we complete work during hours when the shop is closed or do the work in a small section at a time so that your business is not interrupted.

When drying out a structure our SERVPRO restoration team uses laws of thermodynamics to speed up evaporation. One of the laws utilized is the fact that nature always seeks equilibrium. This means that wet always goes to dry. It also means that hot air travels to where it is cooler. High pressured air always moves to areas of lower air pressure.

If the air inside a building holds less water than the materials inside it, then water from the wet materials will move to the drier air. When drying out a structure, we use dehumidifiers to pull moisture from the air creating a warm and dry atmosphere that will make moisture move from wet materials into the air next to it. Air movers then get used to create an airflow that pushes the wet air away from the surfaces towards the dehumidifiers that remove moisture.

Removing moisture from the air and building materials in your coffee shop can reduce the chance of foul odors or fungi forming that could make your shop unpleasant to customers. The final stage of the restoration process is the cleaning and deodorization phase that gets implemented to make sure your coffee shop's atmosphere is just as pleasant as it was before the loss occurred. If you ever need help with excessive moisture inside your coffee shop, call SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050 24 hours a day.
