No Unneeded Drama in Beverly Hills Recovery Efforts by SERVPRO
Fast Service and Customer Satisfaction Focus: Why SERVPRO Delivers High-Quality Disaster Recovery in Beverly Hills
When our customers see their Beverly Hills home brought back to the comfort and function enjoyed before a disaster, they are satisfied they made the call to our team. We stress open communications, checking in with homeowners regularly while completing mitigation and remediation of water, fire, mold, or storm damage. Our mission is to make it “Like it never even happened,” with compassion for the stress and worry our customers endure after their homes suffer harm.
An overflow of a tub or sink might not seem like much of an emergency, but failure to investigate and perform professional water removal in your Beverly Hills home can lead to severe secondary damage issues. Particularly if you did not catch the spillage quickly water might already have migrated throughout many other spaces in your dwelling. Even tile floors develop cracks or have unsealed areas on grout lines that allow water to soak into subflooring or seep into the areas between walls.
It is a wise decision to call for an assessment from our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) after an overflow. Our employees have mastered rigorous coursework relating to the need for moisture detection and the operation of a variety of technologically advanced tools to complete the search. We use thermal imaging to find pockets of water and meters and probes to establish moisture absorption levels in structural components.
We employ many techniques to release and remove trapped water, including limited demotion like flood cuts into wet drywall and powerful equipment like negative pressure water extraction mats that can pull moisture from several layers of flooring. Our knowledge of industry best practices is why SERVPRO can find a solution to your water damage woes with the least disruption to your day to day life.
After experiencing fire damage to your Beverly Hills home, one concern you might not have anticipated is determining what foods you can keep safe. Working with our employees can help you as you sort through pantry items and refrigerated and frozen foods. The assault on your consumables comes from many fronts, and, likely, you do not realize how easily food can spoil or be tainted by the heat and the fine sooty residues.
Boxes and bags, even if unopened, usually need disposal from your pantry. Smoke is merely uncombusted, carbonized remains of the materials burned by the fire. It deposits as soot, coating surfaces and even moving up the threads of jars and invading containers of staples like rice, flour, pasta, and foods. If canned goods heat, the contents may become nourishment for harmful microorganisms. Our familiarity with these risks is why SERVPRO can promote post-fire practices to safeguard you and your family from foodborne hazards.
If the power is out temporarily, refrigerators and freezers may warm too much to keep food safe. The heat from the fire exacerbates the problem. Even when the appliances remain in operation, soot can invade if the gaskets seal poorly. A clue is whether soot trails are visible when the doors of the coolers open. We can help assess whether some or all foods should be tossed for safety’s sake as we complete other fire mitigation and remediation tasks.
If spills or hidden water damage are unresolved homeowners in Beverly Hills might contend with mold damage at some point. Mold spores are extremely opportunistic, waiting on a surface or in the air for a bit of water or even high humidity to begin their growth cycle. Once moisture starts the cycle, the mold grows and multiplies, creating even more spores.
Individuals who have a sensitivity to mold spore or the toxins some strains emits can notice irritation when mold growth is active. Our mold remediation crews use protocols designed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to contain and remove the active colonies. We take care to seal off the area with air scrubbing equipment and barriers to prevent the mold spores from drifting. Our employees wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for safety and to improve the odds that all efforts at containment keep unaffected spaces clear of active mold growth.
Our commitment to the EPA procedure is why SERVPRO can be counted on to manage mold remediation appropriately. The remediation can do just so much, however, and if the conditions persist, mold growth might as well. We check for moisture issues during the project, advising you to take precautions or action to make sure the issues resolve. If the water problem is left unaddressed, mold growth might recur.
Wildfires and general erosion patterns are notable for exacerbating the effects of storms in Beverly Hills. Higher elevations and canyons north of the neighborhood can send water mixed with significant amounts of mud and silt toward your residence when torrential rainstorms fall. It is not uncommon for evacuation orders to be issued when concerns arise around flash flooding and landslides. Your property might be vulnerable, and our team is ready to help.
Beverly Hills storm damage issues were in the news more frequently than ever this past spring. When you face the potential of not only rainwater flooding but also enormous amounts of dirt and gravel invading your home, you take great care in choosing a storm recovery partner. The highly-qualified crews and state-of-the-art equipment available after just one call are why SERVPRO is recommended by homeowners who enjoyed successful results when our team responded to flooding or mudslides.
The tasks needed range from shoveling debris, containing and removing contaminated water, disposing of hazardous materials according to local regulations, cleaning, structural drying, and disinfection of affected spaces. Speedy completion of these jobs makes all the difference between a residence we can return to you in preloss condition and property that experiences progressive deterioration and secondary damage such as microbial growth.
