Flooded Out in Your West Hollywood Work Place? Call SERVPRO--We're Faster To Any Size Disaster--Immediate Cleanup and Restoration

Commercial Flood Damage West Hollywood – Flash Flood Inundates Business Office

The flash flood came out of nowhere in the middle of the night and roared straight through our client's office. The doors were pushed open, and the flood penetrated the business office, leaving a muddy mess that was at least two feet high on the walls. Desks and furniture were all pushed against the far wall with some items ending out on the parking lot of this small business office. A rainstorm in the hills above the office can wash down the gorges very quickly and do a great deal of damage with little warning. Fortunately, no one was in the office at the time.

The office manager called SERVPRO for help for the flood damage to their West Hollywood office the next morning. We were on-site within the hour assessing the damage and developing a plan to assist this client. The client needed to recover personal data and records, at least as much as possible. While the employees could work off-site for the most part, the office manager stated the office should be back in operation as soon as realistically possible.

There was a great deal of sand, gravel, and even plant material that had been washed down the hill and deposited inside the office. Some of the office furniture was damaged beyond repair.  Computers and external disk drives were also damaged.  All of the data had been backed up just before the flood to an external site. We can recommend an electronics shop to clean the hardware, though we do not perform this service.

SERVPRO began by arranging for a dumpster to be delivered. All of the damaged furniture and the gravel were removed and placed in the dumpster. The carpets were soaked with water and contaminated with foreign material. SERVPRO removed the carpet and underpad. With everything removed, the concrete floors and walls were washed and decontaminated before drying.

Restoration activities followed. Electrical and data communication cables installed along with new carpeting throughout. Various other repairs were also completed. The client purchased new office furniture, and their office was back in business in less than a week!

Call SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132 for 24/7 service. We serve Spaulding Square, Melrose District, Central Hollywood, and surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. We can help you deal with emergency water damage and floods of all kinds.

After A Flood In Your Bel Air Home Proper Debris Removal And Cleanup Is Crucial

7/23/2019 (Permalink)

Our experts have the expertise and advanced equipment to make the damage appear “Like it never even happened.”

Flood Damage In Your Bel Air Home Necessitates Proper Debris Removal And Cleanup

A period of heavy rainfall in the Bel Air area can trigger flooding that can devastate homes, especially if the drainage systems are insufficient. The paved roads, parking areas, and driveways in cities often worsen flooding because the surrounding soil cannot absorb the water. Although surface water is usually only a few inches deep, it may cause significant property damage.

When dealing with flood damage in your Bel Air residence, it is essential to call the flood remediation specialists at SERVPRO. We respond to emergencies promptly and can be at your home within an hour of receiving your call. Our technicians can assess the destruction and start the cleanup process.

One vital aspect of the flood damage restoration process is clearing debris from your property. Floodwater can bring different types of debris into your home, including sand, mud pieces of destroyed building materials, gravel, household items, leaves, and other wreckage. We can remove the debris safely even if it contains hazardous substances that require special care. Our technicians can get the items in a house out of the way in order to take other measures. We can move the salvageable items temporarily, place them in one of the rooms and dry them in place, or take them to our facilities to complete the cleaning, drying, and restoration process. If the water has ruined porous items like carpet and upholstered furniture, our technicians can remove and discard them.

If your property has standing water, our technicians can extract it using portable pumps. We spend enough time extracting the water since this minimizes the drying time considerably. Our experts extract as much water as possible from a structure, so we do not have to remove much of it using dehumidifiers. The greatest challenge when drying a house is digging further to know where gravity has sent water or moisture beneath the surface. Water travels through porous or semi-porous surfaces like through walls, into cabinets and under subfloors.

If you do not remove the water or moisture, it can ruin the structures further or cause mold infestation. Our Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) can use sophisticated moisture detecting equipment like thermal imaging cameras to check for moisture in your house. These cameras show temperature changes in that the dry and damp areas appear as different colors. Although thermal imaging cameras cannot determine the moisture content in surfaces, they enable our SERVPRO technicians to show you the wet areas and where we need to focus our drying efforts. Our specialists use dehumidifiers and air movers to dry a house and its contents thoroughly. We change the location of air movers to ensure that drying occurs evenly.

If your residential property in West Hollywood, Spaulding Square or Melrose District has flooded, call SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132 for flood debris removal and cleanup services. Our experts have the expertise and advanced equipment to make the damage appear “Like it never even happened.”

Winning Tactics for Water Damage Remediation For Your Bel Air Property

7/16/2019 (Permalink)

A simple dishwasher mishap can cause major damages. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

Bel Air Balancing Act: Contents and Structures Both Need Water Damage Remediation

When a pipe breaks or an appliance fails inside your Bel Air home, it is rare to find damage confined to just one area. The moisture also harms not only the spaces inside your home but also its contents. Managing a fast and effective response to a water loss requires attention to both structural components and the collection of household goods, furnishings, and personal possessions affected by the moisture. Our team of mitigation and remediation specialist can handle both.

When water damages your Bel Air abode, we might recommend a pack-out of wet articles. The reasons for this vary, but most important is clearing the space for intensive mitigation and remediation efforts. If the on-site crew must move and reposition furniture and other articles constantly as the project progresses, we waste time and additional expense. Damp items can stain flooring and add to the ambient humidity of the house, slowing structural drying. 

The portable items also lose when they stay in your home. If still dry, they risk absorbing moisture in your residence throughout the project. Wet articles have unique cleaning and drying requirements. Our SERVPRO production facility technicians use industry best practices learned during Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training to customize the approach for every piece of property moved out.

Furniture benefits from smaller drying areas, where our employees can adapt air movement, heat, and dehumidification to remove moisture quickly without over or under drying components. Papers and pictures you feared were headed to oblivion rebound when we utilize free drying techniques. SERVPRO has access to industrial washing and drying systems for clothing and other soft items. Electronics regain function when dried appropriately.

SERVPRO’s pack-out protocol is secure and detailed, providing documentation for you and your insurer. We employ the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS), listing, photographing, and barcoding items as appropriate. When your house is cleaned and dried after the water loss, we transport your remediated possessions from our climate-controlled facility to make it a home again, “Like it never even happened.” 

Rely on SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood to strike the correct balance when both building materials and your possessions take an unexpected and unwanted bath. Call us at (310) 572-6132 to discuss your water damage remediation options.

Property Loss from Natural Events or Human Error? In Bel Air Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Recovery

Bel Air Problems with Water, Mold, Fire, or Earthquakes? SERVPRO Can Help with Property Restoration Services

Reasons Bel Air Homeowners Trust SERVPRO for Restoration Services After Water, Mold, Fire or Storm Damage

Many types of damage can happen in Bel Air homes requiring restoration services. Water damage resulting from broken pipes or supply line failures are among the most common reasons, along with damage from storms. According to the National Fire Protection Association, homeowners average five residential fires during their lifetimes.  

When SERVPRO gets the calls to help a Bel Air resident mitigate water damage, we know it is vital to be on site as quickly as possible. No matter if the problem stems from a seal on a pipe breaking, hot water tank fail or appliance failure, we know the longer the home structure and contents have exposure to excessive moisture, the more damage happens.  

Our team members are Water Damage Restoration Technicians and have access to a broad range of equipment to perform professional water extraction. Two frequently used pieces of equipment are our portable pumps which work well in both large and small spaces, and the Rover are ride-on machines that use the weight of the technicians to push water out of carpeting and padding. Using the knowledge gained as certified Carpet Cleaning Technicians (CCT), on a case-by-case basis, our employees save carpeting from water loss and restore it using our proprietary methods, including specialized drying techniques.  
Subflooring, wall cavities, and floor joists present unique problems for water removal and drying. When water wicks into sheetrock, we use our moisture detection equipment to determine how far into the building material it is. Then, using a controlled demolition technique known as "flood cuts," we cut roughly six-inches above the waterline and remove the damaged sheetrock. This action allows for adequate airflow within wall cavities.  

When drying subflooring and floor joists, we frequently use drying mats which are flat mats with numerous hoses to direct air within difficult-to-reach spaces. Once dry, we turn our attention to creating a sanitary residence for the residents. Our technicians use our professional-grade solutions to disinfect all surfaces, which also inhibits the growth of mold and leaves the premises fresh and clean.

Like all home disasters, we approach Bel Air fire damage cleanup with both compassion and professionalism. We know dealing with the need for restoration as well as filing insurance claims may feel overwhelming. That is why when SERVPRO works on a site, we communicate with both the adjuster and the property owner to ensure everyone is on the same page from start to finish of mitigation.

SERVPRO team members go through extensive training to become certified as Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians (FSRT.) They learn the best practices to limit fire loss for homeowners. Our goal is always to restore rather than replace, and we have the equipment and expertise to make that a reality in many cases.  

Standard fire cleanup actions include:

    Removal of charred building materials through controlled   demolition

    Use of dry cleaning and wet sponges to get rid of smoke residue and soot

    Containment in fire-affected rooms to limit the spread of soot

    Thorough cleaning of the HVAC ductwork when needed to remove soot

    Packout of undamaged possessions to secure storage at our facility or a secure on-site storage pod

Smoke odor is a significant obstacle after even a small fire in a home. Soot particles exist smaller than the human eye can see with the potential to cause strong odors. SERVPRO team members undergo intense training to learn methods of removal for all types of smoke odors. Some frequently used types of odor control include time-release gel pellets to cover light smoke odors to equipment such as thermal fogging delivers a solvent heated as a fog that penetrates porous objects and stops odors from deeply embedded soot particles. Hydroxyl generators are highly useful as they utilize UV light rays to neutralize soot particles at the molecular level eradicating odors.

It is difficult to find out your Bel Air home needs mold remediation. Once discovered, it is vital to bring in professional help as mold colonies spread, and a small mold problem becomes a big one fast.

Mold damage can occur as a result of excessive moisture or ventilation problems such as an exhaust fan that poorly ports away humidity during steamy showers and the moisture gets trapped in an attic, over time if the temperatures are right and there are organic substances to consume such as wood beams or sheetrock. Any of these occurrences should be professionally mitigated to ensure secondary damages are not an issue in the future. SERVPRO team members undergo extensive training to become certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians. We know the most common areas that have mold growth and the signs to find hidden colonies behind walls, in attics or under flooring.  

Though rarely needed, we use the services of an industrial hygienist to test the air quality and determine the type of mold spores present. This extreme inspection may be necessary for commercial type sterile remediations like hospitals or surgery centers. Containment is vital during mold remediation such as heavy plastic over doorways and vents in the affected rooms to stop spores from spreading the ductwork. Another common technique for containment uses negative air chambers to port away captured spores.  

While 100% of mold removal is not possible inside or outside of homes, as spores occur naturally, part of our mitigation profession involves eliminating favorable conditions for growth. After our technicians dry the excess moisture and bring down indoor humidity levels below 45%, we take measures to ensure the issue does not return and identify the root cause of the problem along with solutions. We perform the removal of dried colonies with hand vacuums with HEPA filtration to capture minute particles. SERVPRO techs often turn to soda blasting as a preferred method of abatement for stubborn, stuck-on colonies.  

Storm damage occurs in Bel Air homes in numerous ways. While sunny days occur frequently, intense storms in this region bring problems ranging from rainwater in attics from leaky a roof to flash flooding caused by the inability of the drought-hardened ground to absorb water efficiently.  

When groundwater enters a home, although in many cases it dissipates quickly, the debris, mud or contaminants brings devastation to a home. Because groundwater carries a class three biohazard rating, SERVPRO advises homeowners to not come in contact with the water until we can have it tested to determine what contaminants it contains. It this is groundwater that has flooded the property, then the assumption is always of a Black Water contamination problem. Our technicians wear full-body protective gear during remediation of flood damage.

Before we arrive on-site for flood water cleanup, one action homeowners can take to limit loss is to remove items from the area of the water intrusion if there is no danger of coming into direct contact with the water. In this way, they can get things out of harm's way.  

In cases of deep water in a home, we have submersible pumps to extract the water quickly. Our standard portable pumps with weighted extraction wands push water out of dense, saturated carpeting so it can be cut and disposed of without danger of injury. To dry the premises after flood water removal, our technicians use the science of psychrometrics to set up air movers to not only dry the property but also pull embedded moisture to the surface where the dehumidification equipment then removes it.  

Why SERVPRO? When a disaster occurs in a Bel Air home, professional restoration services are a must-have. DIY methods may clean surface issues, but it takes both training and experience to restore a property to its preloss condition. Our technicians have extensive training in the restoration sciences as suggested through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) guidelines, primarily regarded as teaching the highest level of quality methods and best practices.

SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood serves the local area providing home restoration services for water, fire, storm damage, or mold remediation needs. Call (310) 572-6132, and we can be on-site quickly and make your home loss of any size "Like it never even happened."

Little Fires Can Cause Big Smoke Odors In Your Bel Air Home

6/10/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood is ready 24/7 to tackle any level of fire damage to your home.

Bel Air Fire Place Causes Little Fire Damage And Big Smoke Odors

A crackling fire can set the mood, make a room feel cozy, and fire damage is probably the furthermost from your mind. Sometimes mistakes happen when inexperienced homeowners light fires for the first time.

SERVPRO responded to a call from a homeowner in Bel Air regarding little actual fire damage throughout a living room and a lot of smoke and soot in the living room. The homeowner recently purchased the home and used the fireplace with the damper closed. He had also used an accelerant to get the fire going assuming an indoor fireplace log needed assistance to light much like a charcoal grill. The result was a large amount of smoke filling the room until he put out the fire using a home fire extinguisher and a bucket of sand.

He contacted SERVPRO, and our technicians arrived a short time later. We moved the upholstered furnishings and area rug out of the room to our local facility for cleaning and deodorization to remove the strong smoke smell each item retained.

Then we used both wet and dry sponges for cleaning away the smoke residue on the brickwork and wall around the fireplace and worked on picking up the extinguisher powder, sand and visible soot with our handheld vacuums fitted with HEPA filtration. We then deployed air scrubbers also with HEPA filtration to remove airborne particles that caused odor and were smaller than the human eye can see.

Our SERVPRO technicians undergo a rigorous continuing education in the restoration sciences and hold several certifications, including Odor Control Technician (OCT). We have both the professional equipment and expertise to neutralize any level of smoke odor in a home. Because a small, detectable smoke odor prevailed after the deep cleaning, we used thermal fogging to eradicate the remaining smell that remained. Leaving the room without a trace of the homeowners' fireplace use learning curve. Afterward, we walked the homeowner through the steps for safely using his fireplace in the future to avoid this scenario.

SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood is ready 24/7 to tackle any level of fire damage to your home. Call us at (310) 572-6132, and our certified technicians arrive in hours to make your fire loss, “Like it never even happened.”

The Ultimate Guide to Water Damage Remediation in Your Bel Air Residence

5/30/2019 (Permalink)

Pipe bursts can wreak havoc on your home. Contact SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

Reasons Why Water Removal from Your Bel Air Home is Not a DIY Project

When water damage happens in your home, it can feel overwhelming. The sooner the cleanup begins, the more potential for saving both building materials and contents.

SERVPRO answered a call from a homeowner in Bel Air for emergency water removal from a pipe burst late at night. Because we are available 24-hours, our technicians arrived a short time after the call to begin mitigation of the water loss.

We bring all the equipment we need to job sites, so there are no delays in remediation efforts. The longer water is in contact with carpet and padding, building materials or contents-the more damage it is doing. It is crucial to locate all areas in the property the water has migrated into.

Without proper removal of the water, it sets the property up for additional issues such as mold growth and foul odors.

Our SERVPRO technicians have specialized equipment for extraction. Portable pumps are a fast and efficient way to remove water, and when needed, we add weighted extraction that pushes down on carpeting and forces water out of the padding to the surface. When large areas of floor space are affected by water, our stand-on Rover units are ideal. They are highly maneuverable and use the weight of the technician operating it to push water up and out of carpeting or other floorings.

In the case of a pipe burst, often we find evidence of a long term leaking with softened sheetrock from exposure to water. Depending on the level of damage, the technicians usually either drill weep holes to allow for both the drainage of water and additional airflow for drying, or they may cut away the damaged sheetrock using a technique called "flood cuts."

In most cases, ordinary household fans do not emit enough airflow to adequately a space after a water intrusion. We use air movers, and they are the final step in water removal efforts. The high-velocity air blows across surfaces with deeply embedded water and the force of the air causes the water vapor to rise, and then our dehumidifying equipment ports it away.  

At the first sign you need water removal, call SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132. Whether it is one room or your entire property, we are available 24/7, and We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

For out of hours property emergencies, contact SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132.

Out Of Hours Service For Commercial Water Cleanup In Bel Air

Out of hours, property issues can play havoc for those working in the bar industry. An overworked appliance can start spewing out water at three or four AM, which requires immediate attention to prevent permanent damages.

One of the flagships of our service for commercial water cleanup in Bel Air is having technicians available on call.

We send the necessary technicians with the right equipment to your place of work to ensure that a late night water spill does not carry over into the next day of trading.

In the bar industry, one of the challenges in removing stagnant water is the number of fittings. SERVPRO technicians can disassemble fittings behind a bar to clean behind them using chemical agents before replacing them once the affected area is dry. Where fittings are non-removable, we can drill small holes to encourage airflow, drying both inside and out.

In terms of remediating a property, the main goal is to remove the contaminating source. We can apply a range of sanitizers, bleaches, and biocides to ensure any soiling is dealt with correctly. Sometimes, odors can linger even after the soiling has been removed and sanitized. SERVPRO technicians can deploy different types of deodorizer, including sprays, pellets, and foggers to help control odor and prevent it become an issue for your staff or customers.

As a locally owned and operated company, we have much experience in helping the business community overcome minor, and significant, water issues. Our close relationship with local adjusters can make a significant difference to the ease of making your claim, and we can conduct a thorough walk-through with you at the end of service to show you what has been completed and discuss possible outcomes.

Stormy Weather in West Hollywood? Think About Calling SERVPRO for Mitigation

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

Exit Flood Damage in West Hollywood with SERVPRO's Rapid Cleanup and Restoration

Flood Damage in West Hollywood Needs Fast Action

Flood damage is a situation that you can take preventative measures for, but not be entirely ready for the issues it causes. Water has the destructive potential to equal fire damage in a home and needs detailed mitigation to reverse water loss to the property and contents.

SERVPRO arrive within hours of the initial call to clean up flood damage from a storm in a West Hollywood residence. High winds caused a tree limb to break a window, and the interior of the bedroom received a large amount of rainwater while the homeowner was at work.

The mattress soaked up a good portion of the incoming water and was extremely heavy but was packed out for possible restoration. SERVPRO offers mattress cleaning and mitigation on a case by case basis in our local facility. Factors such as if the mattress had a waterproof cover, how long exposure of the mattress to water occurred and the category of the water affect the potential for restoration. If the water was deemed contaminated then the mattress must be discarded.

When the technicians clean saturated carpeting in small-scale water loss situations, our portable pumps with weighted extractors allow the tech to push the water out of the carpet using several passes.
Another piece of equipment we use is the highly maneuverable Rover that has a small floor profile but removes water from carpet and padding with fewer passes. The Rover is a ride-on device that uses the weight of the technician to do its work. The more moisture extracted at this step lowers the drying time for the structure significantly. The benefit of this is that it lessens the chances of additional water loss to property and contents from extended exposure to water. If the flooding was caused by dirty, groundwater intrusion, then it is not a SERVPRO protocol to try to restore the carpet and padding.

Before drying, SERVPRO takes moisture readings to determine if water has run behind baseboards or wicked into drywall. If necessary, removing of baseboards and a technician drilling weep- holes into the wall to allow for airflow and complete drying of the wall cavity. This can be used along with an injecti-dry device.

Once confirmed dry, our technicians cleaned and disinfected all surfaces affected by water. Our professional-grade formulas neutralize odors and have antibacterial and antifungal properties to leave the room sanitized and ready for the homeowner.

SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood knows the quick action against flood damage means less loss for homeowners. Our emergency response teams are available 24-hours a day at (310) 572-6132 to make your loss "Like it never even happened."
