Water Damage Water Damage From a Ceiling Leak in Your Century City Home Water Stains on Your Century City Ceiling? Better Call SERVPRO for Drying and Restoration

Century Village Homeowners Count on SERVPRO for Water Removal, Cleanup, and Restoration

When you see the dreaded water stain on the ceiling of your home in Century City, it is not something that is welcome. It should not be too complicated to figure out the source of the water. Whatever is above the ceiling is the source of the moisture problem. When you cannot identify the possible water source above the stain, you could have a leaky pipe. It is not uncommon for water to run along piping or rafters before dripping onto your ceiling.
 
A leaky pipe may have been this way for a while before it is apparent to you, meaning there could be a good deal of water damage to your Century City home that you cannot see yet. It is something you want to handle right away before even more damage is done. A professional remediation company such as SERVPRO can help you get everything cleaned up. Our technicians are trained and have the right equipment for the job.
 
In a situation like this, we find the areas of your structure that are wet and define precisely how wet they are compared to regular moisture levels. We use various devices to help us track moisture within your home. Our goal for drying is to return materials affected to their normal moisture content levels. These tools are used to find the actual moisture content of different materials and help us figure out if your structure is dry.
 
SERVPRO techs also use thermo-hygrometers which measure both relative humidity and temperature. Some even do more, like measure dew point. We allow the thermos-hygrometer to adapt to air conditions in the room before we take a reading. We then use these readings in conjunction with a psychrometric calculator or chart. We do so to determine the specific humidity.
 
Readings for four areas are compared including the unaffected areas, the areas affected by moisture, outside the home, and the exhaust being processed through the dehumidifier into the area affected to make sure dehumidification is contributing to a drying process that is effective.
 
SERVPRO of Beverly Hills/Westwood has the tools to ensure that your home in Century City, Westwood Village, or Beverly Hills is dry again after a water loss. Give us a call at (310) 390-7540 as soon as you realize there is a problem.

The Preliminary Steps of Mold Remediation For Your Century City Residence

3/12/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation The Preliminary Steps of Mold Remediation For Your Century City Residence From Spores to Mold Colonies Rely on SERVPRO for Remediation to Protect Your Century City Property

Basic Steps Ensure a Successful Mold Cleanup Service by SERVPRO

When you come across mold growth in your Century City home, your first impression might be that you can handle this occurrence on your own. Understanding the cause of this growth as well as the means to remove colonies that have formed in your home officially is critical to combat the spread and recurrence of this disturbing and damaging situation.

There are several different ways that mold damage can begin and spread in your Century City home. Spores are in the air that we breathe, so they are in the environment all throughout your home already, but often do not have the appropriate conditions to be anything more than microscopic organisms . When moisture in the air combines with temperatures more than sixty-five degrees, the appropriate circumstances exist to feed these present spores and allow them to seat and grow on organic surfaces throughout this affected area.
 
Our SERVPRO team gets specially trained in mold remediation techniques. Our skills get honed to standards set in place by the IICRC. Many of our remediation technicians are IICRC-certified and adequately prepared for any level of fungal growth or variety of organism one could encounter. Our experience and training give us a unique advantage to restoring the mold damage in your home and allows us to do the job safely and efficiently.
 
Sectioning off the affected area is a priority from the moment that our SERVPRO technicians begin work on your home's remediation needs. This process ensures that active mold spores are not able to spread to new areas of your home and establish new colonies. For this reason, air circulation is shut down in your home (mainly air conditioning and heaters) for the duration of the removal plan. To quarantine the area housing the fungal organisms, our experienced technicians utilize negative air chambers and air scrubbers to capture spores in the air.
 
While this might just be a small introductory cross-section of our remediation process, our experienced and equipment ensure that SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood is the best choice for any mold damage emergency you could encounter. You can reach our remediation specialists anytime by calling (310) 390-7540.

Storm Damage The Flood Damage Experts Of Beverly Hills Sometimes when enough rain hits an area, flooding occurs.

Flood Damage Experts

Sometimes when enough rain hits an area, flooding occurs. Even if there isn't enough rain to cause a flood, it is possible that water still damages your Beverly Hills home. Storms bring about high-speed winds that sometimes also cause damage.

Often, winds blow a rock or other object into a window causing rainwater to pour inside your house. Anytime rain finds its way into your home; it is wise to call SERVPRO's flood damage specialists in Beverly Hills. It is always a possibility that rainwater damages contents and building materials once it enters through a broken window.

Any time rainwater damages an area inside your home the water gets tested for contamination levels. If the water has a high level of contamination many of the contents and building materials inside the home get discarded. If the contamination level is low, many times the contents and materials get saved by drying them out.

SERVPRO's skilled restoration team not only mitigates problems with your building materials and structure, but we also handle damage to contents such as furniture. Water can cause several issues to different types of upholstery. Wooden framing inside upholstered furniture sometimes swells causing joints to loosen. Moisture also causes glues to break down which damages the furniture.

Often, water causes spots to form on fabrics requiring that our crew wets the entire piece of fabric evenly so that lines and spots do not stay permanently. Dust covers sometimes bleed colors into other materials. Metal objects on furniture at times rust causing rust stains on the cloth. Wooden legs on furniture possibly stain your carpet if left sitting on top of it while the furniture is still wet.

Our restoration crew knows the particular procedures that minimize damage to your furniture. We lift the furniture off of your carpet and put foam blocks underneath the furniture's wooden legs. Cushions get taken off the couch and get placed in a tent formation. Wax paper gets placed between any metal and fabric while the drying process takes place. Then, we put in air movers and dehumidifiers that lower moisture levels within the furniture and help prevent mildew growth.

Any time a storm breezes into your neighborhood and damages your home, it is wise to call in the experts to handle the situation. We at SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood are a call away at (310) 390-7540, and we are here to help you with problems at your house 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Removing Mold Damage In Century City Homes

2/26/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Removing Mold Damage In Century City Homes Removing mold and restoring area homes is more than just a job for us.

Removing Mold

The last few months have been about the recent fires in our area, so mold is not a problem most Century City residents think about too often. While mold is not obvious like a roof fire, it can grow for weeks and months unnoticed until it spreads throughout the entire home.

As we work to restore the effects of the fires in Century City, SERVPRO technicians often find mold damage in many homes. It is a problem for restoration efforts since we have to stop other work and find the mold source. That raises the cost to the homeowner and her insurance company. Our technicians also take additional safety precautions since mold can affect the health of anyone inside the home.

Once we find the mold source, we spray it and the affected structural property with an anti-fungal, chemical agent. It destroys the surface mold, stopping the health threat, and reduces the chance of accidentally transferring live, active mold to unaffected parts of the home as we continue other restoration efforts.

If the mold is growing on an item already damaged by fire, it usually is cheaper to replace the item than to spend the dollars for labor and resources necessary to restore or repair it. Insurance companies have already calculated the cost-effectiveness in these situations and usually insist on the cheaper option. If the homeowner still wants to attempt restoration of a dining room table, for example, we can do that, but the SERVPRO team leader explains the costs involved and makes certain the customer understands the situation before continuing with the process.

In some instances, the work remains the same, and no additional effort is required. As an example, carpets require cleaning regardless if there is only smoke residue or if there is mold as well. In each case, we can use a commercial carpet cleaner to remove the contamination. The only change we make is to add an anti-microbial agent to the cleaning shampoo in the device.

Removing mold and restoring area homes is more than just a job for us. As a locally owned business, SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood understands that each of our customers is also one of our neighbors. If you need us, call (310) 390-7540 today for more information on what we can do for you.

Commercial Water Damage Cleanup In Your Century City Deli

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Cleanup In Your Century City Deli A leaking sink in your Century City deli can go unnoticed at first.

Commercial Water Damage Cleanup

A leaking sink in your Century City deli can go unnoticed at first. There are various reasons why the sink can start leaking. The water supply valves, for instance, are always under pressure. If a connection loosens or the line is punctured, even without the faucet being on, water will leak under your sink. Drain pipes constructed of metal such as copper, brass, or galvanized steel can corrode over time and develop a leak, or if the P-trap under the sink is clogged, it causes water to build up all the way up the drains and make a leak.

Any leak or commercial water damage in your Century City business can be devastating. Depending on how severe it is, your operations can be halted. It is best to have professionals from SERVPRO help you clean up the mess and any related damage before it becomes worse.

In this way, the drying process goes as quickly as possible. Removing all the humidity and water can prevent further damage to your facility, such as the growth of mold.

If we suspect any hidden water, we make use of moisture detectors which can find any moisture we cannot see inside your walls, your flooring, or underneath the sink cabinet. Once everything is dry again, the affected area is cleaned and sanitized.

We understand at SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood that time is money, so when your business in Century City, Westwood Village, or Beverly Hills has a water damage emergency, we work fast to help you. Just give us a call at (310) 390-7540, and we can get your business back in working order fast.

Understanding the Levels of Clean After Commercial Water Damage to Your Century City Clothing Boutique

Commercial Understanding the Levels of Clean After Commercial Water Damage to Your Century City Clothing Boutique SERVPRO Works Hard with Rapid Water Removal to Keep Your Century City Business in Business

Fast Water Removal, Cleanup & Restoration Are What SERVPRO Can Do to Protect Your Business

Water damage to a clothing boutique is any storeowner's worst nightmare. The dirty water can damage the inventory and the store as well. Cleaning up after a water intrusion incidence is not a DIY job for Century City business owners.

Thankfully, restorations experts for water damage can get your Century City clothing boutique clean so that you are back in business in no time. That said, technicians often categorize cleanliness into three distinct levels. This identification helps to set up the most expedient means of extraction and drying.

Sterile level  
A sterile environment is one where there is no contamination whatsoever. Such type of cleanliness is only required in healthcare facilities such as hospitals. It is not possible to eliminate a 100% of contamination during routine cleaning. SERVPRO technicians do not sterilize any facility after water damage cleanup. Besides, you do not need the sterile level of cleaning for your clothing store.

Disinfected level
This level of cleaning requires the elimination of 99% of pathogens and other microbes such as bacteria, viruses, mold spores. In situations where there is water damage due to sewer backup, technicians can use EPA-registered disinfectants. However, routine cleaning is not able to achieve this level of cleanliness.

Sanitary level
A sanitary level is said to have achieved if the environment is clean to the point that general health is protected. There might be some soil contamination at this level of cleaning. It is a level of cleanliness that is desirable after water damage to a clothing store. The term 'clean' indicates to this ranking of cleanliness.
 
SERVPRO technicians use some of the best cleaning equipment and can achieve this level of cleaning during the restoration of the aftermath of flood damage to your commercial property. Clean water from a plumbing break within the structures is potable water, and is the least complicated process for extraction and drying.

Regular cleaning is required to maintain the sanitary level of cleanliness. If the areas are not regularly cleaned, they can become unsanitary.
