Water leaks from a broken facet can cause flooding in a home or business and if not mitigated quickly, can cause business disruption and secondary damage, such as damaged furniture, inability to use the affected areas and possible mold growth.

In this case, the water supply line from the toilet in a commercial building in downtown Brentwood, CA burst and flooded the kitchenette and gym area. 

The business owner did not hesitate to call our team to remediate the situation and the swift response from our team helped prevent the property and contents having a secondary damage.

With this weighted extractor equipment, more water is extracted from the carpet by taking advantage of the added weight of the operator.

We sure made it look "Like it never even happened."

We use science to our advantage in deodorizing

8/23/2020 (Permalink)

In recent times we have been asked by our clients about eliminating odors after a storm damage that affected their homes, offices, cars and boats.

Some odors can linger after a storm event and it can be very disturbing to the property owner. Sometimes these smells cannot be completed eliminated without a carpet or padding removal and disposing. Also, for any deodorizing protocol used, the protocol might need to be applied a few times to completely neutralize the pungent odor.

We at SERVPRO like to use the OZONE generator which is used to oxidize organic odors such as smoke, pet odors, mildew, organic pollutants and more without chemicals and that is used for oxidizing, bleaching, disinfecting, and deodorizing.

We use this technology especially for clients that do not like a chemical odor neutralizing protocol in their property.

Do you know where your emergency water shut off is?

Water damages are a very unexpected event that can occur any part of the house that is connected to any water source. The adverse secondary impact of a water damage for the home owner is enormous.

We at SERVPRO understand that water damages happen unexpectedly but we also understand that we can live prepared for damages because “prior preparation prevents poor performance”.

We advise that property owners are aware of the emergency water shut off within the property and how they operate in the case of a water damage. All emergency shutoffs should also be regularly checked by a professional to ensure they work properly in an event of an emergency.

Finally, repairs of leaking facets and pipes should be carried out urgently to prevent degeneration that can cause a water damage.

In SERVPRO we have mastered the biological composition of odors and have a range of products to tackle various kinds of odors.

For Example, SERVPRO’s Bio Odor Neutralizer is a concentrated odor-neutralizing agent that works by forming a complex bond with the odor causing molecules, especially sulfur and amine-based odor molecules. These types of odors are commonly found in skunks, fish, cabbage, spoiled food and dead bodies.

We also commonly get requests for pet urine odor and stain remover from carpets and for that we use SERVPRO’s Urine Odor and Stain Remover which is an environmentally friendly mixture of bacterial cultures with their natural enzymes. It is used to eliminate odors and stains caused by organic residues such as: urine, feces, vomit, spilled foods, skunk, perspiration, and/or other organic wastes.

In these unprecedented times of the COVID 19 pandemic, businesses and commercials spaces in a bid to open back up to the public while following guidelines from our local health authority have had to consider sanitizing procedures and protocols to stay open within the guidelines of the Centre for disease Control (CDC).

In that regard, we have received various requests from our clients about the efficacy of our cleaning products and its approval by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

We use the SERVPRO EasyDECON® DF200 which is an EPA registered formula for use in mold remediation, water damages, general purpose disinfection, trauma clean-up and deodorization.

Fire damaged wooden cabinet This shows a before and after scenario showing the efficacy of SERVPRO range of products

A fire in a home can cause a lot of damaging ripple effect. It can destroy precious personal property of the home owner or affect the integrity of personal property by changing the appearance or smell as a result of soot.

The effect of soot on an item can almost mean the end of the item to the owner when the right products are not applied to get rid of the effect of smoke. This is a popular situation with wood materials.

Wood can be cleaned and restored with various products in our SERVPRO range after a soot damage, we especially like to use the SERVPRO Lemon Oil Polish which is a professional quality polish formulated to clean, protect, polish, beautify and restore all wood finishes.

It repels water, while protecting natural wood surfaces from discoloration and raising of wood grain.

Living Ready in Wildfire Season

Wild fire season is a very precautionary time for anyone living in an area prone to wild fires. The negative ripple effect of a wild fire to a property owner cannot be underestimated.

The local authority does a very good job in warning property owners on the procedures they need to take in the event of the wild fire or home fire, in the event of an evacuation or containing the fire spread.

We advise that property owners regularly inspect the surrounding of their homes and business for leaky gas pipes, prune dead plants and properly dispose of those, prune overgrown trees; especially any close to power cables, ensure trash is disposed of properly because it can be a perfect fuel agent for fires and finally ensure the access points are free from clutter to allow the emergency services get to the source of the fire quickly.
