SERVPRO's timely handling of commercial water damage is the best approach to minimize damage.

SERVPRO Intervenes After Water Damage in Canoga Park

Compared to something like a fire, you may not consider water intrusion a significant property disaster. However, the seemingly benign incident can have dire implications for your Canoga Park business. You should consider water damage repair an emergency procedure since the leak source might still be active, and the deterioration moisture triggers in a structure worsen over time.

Early action halts the microbial development and material deterioration that moisture triggers. It is also easier to limit the impact of an active intrusion source when you respond in time.

Notable things about water damage:

  • The damage worsens over time
  • Direct and indirect damage is possible

Severe moisture problems

The outcome can be dire if you ignore or fail to discover some water. You may notice visual changes like water spots and stains on surfaces that immediately ruin your workplace's ambiance.

For instance, you cannot use pallets in your storage areas if the wood is rotten and doors may not seal shut if the frames are warped. Our SERVPRO technicians work to help you avoid such severe outcomes.

Is It Safe to Return to Work in Canoga Park after a Premises Fire?

2/25/2022 (Permalink)

When your business suffers from a fire, it’s time to bring in the professionals. Call our technicians for effective fire damage remediation services.

SERVPRO Can Return Indoor Air Quality to a Clean Standard with Commercial Fire Damage Restoration

Commercial spaces can fall victim to fire. As a premises manager, it can be tough to know when the environment is safe for staff or customers to return. Fires release thousands of chemicals and compounds in a gas form that can be unsanitary, cause odors, or leave the particulate matter in the air. Any technician working on the site of a recent fire must wear a medical-grade- n95 or higher- respiratory mask to protect themselves from particulate matter, dust, or gases in the air. It is essential then that indoor air quality is managed to a professional standard before staff or customers return to work in the environment. SERVPRO can help your business with:

  • Warehouse fires
  • Electrical fires
  • Fire restoration

We use advanced air cleaning equipment in most commercial fire damage restoration jobs here in Canoga Park. Air cleaning technology can include things like oZone generators, which release unstable compounds into the air and eliminate odors or gases. However, oZone can be a toxic gas and is generally reserved for extreme situations as the full evacuation of premises, including animals, is necessary before using oZone. One of the preferred alternatives is a hydroxyl generator which is generally safer to use in busy environments. A hydroxyl generator is the tool of choice when working to restore apartments or other properties that may have tenants still in the building.

  • Hydroxyl generators use UV-C, a short, ultraviolet light that can destroy odor particles, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and bacteria.
  • UV-C generators can sanitize air and remove odor, which is why they are often chosen for commercial projects such as warehouses, tenements, and bars.
  • Hydroxyl generators filter indoor air through a chamber that exposes it to UV-C light. The clean air is then returned to the environment. 

Ensure your indoor air quality returns to an acceptable standard following a fire. Contact SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills for commercial fire damage restoration at (818) 998-1500.

Water Damage Puts the Damper on the Image of Canoga Park Retailers

1/3/2022 (Permalink)

Water can quickly damage your store from the inventory to musty odors left behind.

SERVPRO Removes Water and Helps Restore a Special Ambience to your Shop

When running a retail store in Canoga Park, many various employees of different levels work together. Cooperation and communication ensure smoothness in operations exists. The absence of this creates problems that can affect customer satisfaction. Managers work hard, putting forth efforts so that harmony among employees is inherent in the workplace. However, other situations may not be easily dealt with and brought back under control.

Retail stores in Canoga Park with commercial water damage can seem dirtier than their competitors. This image stems from the visual impact that the damage can impact on a building's interior walls, ceilings, and even floors and the odor that it can emit into the air.

Musty smells rarely bring up feelings of cleanliness, and stores that experience these adverse conditions often lose consumers who refuse to return. Worse, comments on customers' social media accounts can have similar effects to an explicit boycott.

Water Damage Cleanup

To reverse this negative image, having an all-out face-lift of your store's interior and exterior can strengthen your ties to the community in general and make your place of business the go-to spot for the latest in goods and products once again. We can quickly and easily make this happen for your store, with little time required for closure while we work. By quickly removing the water and moisture, we get the doors back open.

Where architectural details are part of your trademark, we can work with you on preserving such areas with updates or other related improvements that effectively rebrand your store in a positive light. Restoring the rest of your store's environment through repainting of walls and other surfaces, high-detailed cleaning of areas that attract the worst grime, and freshening of carpeted areas. Deodorization with a hydroxyl generator is a highly safe method that is even more effective than ozone. It is so safe that it can occur while people are in the area as deodorization occurs. Odors can be problematic after water or fire damage.

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills can revitalize your entire store and improve all levels of post-water damage issues. "Like it never even happened." Call us at (818) 991-6292 now so we can begin to restore your business and your image.

Can a Bell Canyon Company Remain Open During Commercial Fire Damage Restoration?

11/21/2021 (Permalink)

Soot can soil both the walls and the contents of your commercial location. Team SERVPRO is available to clean and remediate the fire damage.

SERVPRO Serves Bell Canyon With Professional Commercial Fire Cleanup Services

Even a small amount of fire damage can grind a Bell Canyon business to a halt with problems such as: 

  • Soot on walls and ceilings
  • Inspection of stored stock for damage
  • The need for water cleanup 
  • Charred building materials cause odors
  • Dangers from damaged structural elements from heat

During fire damage restoration services in Bell Canyon properties, SERVPRO recommends that it is generally best to close the building temporarily because of the potential to transfer soot particles throughout the building and the possibility of soot being an irritant for some people.

SERVPRO technicians thoroughly inspect the furnishings, stock, and other items to see if they can be covered or require a pack-out during the cleanup and restoration. The techs set up cleaning stations to handle non-porous things that can benefit from abrasive or immersive cleaning methods. These actions are some of the most common ways to remove smoke residues.

In the case of data centers or other electronic equipment, both heat and water can cause issues, and these devices should not be tested to avoid the danger of shock or permanent damage. SERVPRO can arrange for an industry professional to inspect the equipment to determine if it is in good working order or requires repairs before bringing it back into the building for reuse.  

Before reopening the building, SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians do a visual inspection to ensure the structure is sound. The problem areas left behind by the fire have been addressed through either controlled demolition to remove ruined items or restorative cleaning applications. 

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500 stands ready to assist Bell Canyon commercial properties with any size and type of fire damage restoration services needed. The trained and certified technicians are on call and willing to help 24/7.

When water damage affects your business, quick action is what you need. Contact the certified technicians at SERVPRO for effective water removal.

Commercial Water Damage Restoration In Your Canoga Park Business

While it is true that big storms and flooding can cause a great deal of damage to buildings in Canoga Park, there are several other factors that can result in a water emergency in your office building. Small leaks can sometimes create more damage than natural disasters since they happen more often and usually go unnoticed for a long time.

Water leaks in your office building pose a significant threat since there is a large number of people using water fixtures on a daily basis. Leaks in your commercial building lead to the waste of hundreds of gallons per day, significantly increasing your bills each month. Water damage restoration in Canoga Park is needed right away when you find an issue, and SERVPRO staff can make it, so it looks “Like it never even happened.”

One common issue in commercial buildings, especially those with public restrooms, is your toilets. They get much use, and their parts quickly wear out and can let water leaks occur. The malfunctioning parts are not expensive and easy to replace, but if the leak itself is neglected, it can lead to a substantial repair bill. Leaky faucets are another common concern for commercial buildings that usually get overlooked. Similar to the toilet, leaks here are usually the result of worn-out parts, and if they are not replaced, it results in a significant water loss.

A water leak in the bathroom of your office building is an inconvenience at best, and SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians are careful to work around your employees as you continue your daily operations. We understand that any disruptions can cost you lost hours of work and revenue, so we do our best to work quickly to fix the issue and not cause a distraction.

Water Removal Services

To ensure we can get the job done faster, we use air movers to increase evaporation and lower drying time. Air movers work by creating airflow at the level of the surface, which pushes moisture into the air as vapor, so drier air replaces the wet air. Air movers are made as 1, 2, or 3-speed units, so we always have the right tool available according to the situation.

Plumbing leaks are yet another issue for commercial buildings. Deteriorated sewer lines and broken water supply pipes are the most common of these problems seen and can create extensive water leaks and severe damage. Plus, the sewer lines and piping systems are usually buried underground or found inside the walls, so detecting these leaks is difficult.

When your commercial building in West Hills, Bell Canyon, or Winnetka has a water damage emergency, trust SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills to get to you fast. As soon as you find an issue, get in touch with us by dialing (818) 998-1500, and we can have your building dry again in no time.

Water damage in your apartment can affect other units near you as well. Contact Team SERVPRO for more information and remediation services.

What to Do When You Find Water Damage Caused by the Apartment Upstairs

Living in an apartment unit can be an attractive way to live in a city; however, not every owner is equally responsible, and it is never a good thing when this leads to water damage developing inside of your home. Living in a building with hundreds of other tenants makes your home susceptible to damages that may come from any of the apartments around you. Despite this fact, it is comforting to know that professional help is always close enough to rush to help you if an accident does happen.

You first found the water damage inside your Canoga Park bedroom when you were cleaning out your closet. The damage was against the back wall where water from a leak the next floor up had spread. Upon finding the damage, it is necessary to call for help as soon as possible. When excess moisture comes into contact with other devices, it can cause future problems to develop, such as mold damage. In fact, with enough moisture to feed the mold spores, it only takes three days for microbial growth to begin forming. Getting help to your home and getting it there fast can help ensure that the remediation inside of your home goes smoothly.

We can use dehumidifiers and air movers together to create an ideal environment for evaporation. SERVPRO can also drill very small holes in your wall so that we may funnel air blasters through to space in between, where the moisture has been building. Once the moisture levels become normal, we complete our job, and you can enjoy your home in its pre-damaged state once again.

If not effectively remediated, water losses can become mold growth events.

SERVPRO Can Help Address All Types of Mold Infestations in Winnetka Business Premises

Noticing signs of mold at your business premises can be worrisome since most of your clients and even staff members may be wary of spending time in a moldy environment. The signs you notice may also not reveal the complete picture. For example, there may be a full-blown infestation in a wall cavity where you see moldy spots.

Thorough mold damage remediation in Winnetka requires a combination of skills so that evaluation and removal can be done satisfactorily. SERVPRO avails IICRC Certified mold remediation technicians who can evaluate the infestation in your property to determine whether it is severe. We use various approaches to do such evaluation, including:

  • Drilling exploratory holes in cavities such as ceilings, walls, or cabinets then using borescopes for inspection
  • Checking for moisture trapped in hidden areas using thermal cameras
  • Tapping or pressing materials since mold growth can ruin their structural integrity

Depending on the results, we can tell whether mold growth is restricted to the material's surface or whether it goes further and thus requires extensive removal processes.

Flood damage? SERVPRO is prepared with restoration equipment and experienced technicians. Call us today!

SERVPRO Provides Effective Commercial Flood Damage Restoration Services in Canoga Park

Canoga Park is a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region in Los Angeles, California. It has a population of 57,217 people. Canoga Park has an urban feel, and many of its residents rent their homes. Many parks and shops are present in this neighborhood. Many young professionals and families reside in Canoga Park, and they tend to be liberal. The public schools of the neighborhood are above average.

Before the Mexican-American War, the neighborhood was a part of a rancho. Once the American army gained the victory, it was changed into wheat farms and subdivided later. Part of it was named Owensmouth, a town established in 1912.

Pre-American history

The area where Canoga Park is presently situated was the homeland of Native Americans in the Chumash-Ventureno and Tongya Fernandeno tribes, which lived in the Simi Hills and along the Los Angeles River’s tributaries. They exchanged goods with the North Valley Tataviam-Fernandeno people.


Canoga Park is known for its central location and fantastic weather. It is near many of the region’s top attractions. Various restaurants, cafes, shopping areas and parks like the shops at Vallarta and Westfield Topanga and the Village are present. Many festivals occur in Canoga Park all year round. Examples are the Canoga Park Memorial Day Parade and the Dia de los Muertos festival.

Best things to do around and in Canoga Park

    Visit the Canoga-Owensmouth Historical Society

Learning about an area's culture and history is the best way to connect with it. You can learn about the neighborhood’s past by visiting the Canoga-Owensmouth Historical Society. This museum features numerous exhibits. Some rotate while others are permanent, meaning visitors cannot lack something interesting to see. The items displayed in the museum illustrate life in the San Fernando Valley and Canoga Park in various eras, including the Mexican Rancho days, the aerospace industry days, the farming days, and the days of the Chumash Indians.   

    Unwind in Parthenia Park

If you want to spend time relaxing without having to travel too far, visit Parthenia Park. The park has attractive green spaces where you can enjoy a family picnic or lie on a blanket with a book. There is also a playground on site.

    Play golf at the Calabasas Country Club

This is a large property with numerous facilities, including an eighteen-hole championship golf course. The course is ideal for all levels but is challenging enough to keep even the excellent golfers on their toes. While making your way along the course, you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery and notice that all holes are named after a movie that was filmed on-site.

A flooding incident can affect anyone visiting or residing in Canoga Park. When such an incident occurs, it is essential to seek assistance from restoration experts.

How SERVPRO performs commercial flood damage restoration

Dealing with the aftermath of folding is a significant undertaking for any region or community to face. SERVPRO can mobilize multiple teams quickly within a few hours to respond to commercial flood damage in Canoga Park.

We understand that flooding can negatively affect your business because we are also business owners. We also understand the different disaster relief required by restaurants, condos, manufacturing plants, and office buildings. Regulations differ for these entities, and they change between municipalities and counties.

Our commercial flood damage restoration process includes:

  •     Floodwater extraction
  •     Structural drying
  •     Mold remediation
  •     Complete build-ups

Our team can use portable or truck-mounted water extraction equipment to remove floodwater quickly. If there is no power, we use electrical generators to provide the needed power. Vinyl wall coverings are common in commercial buildings. It is daunting to dry walls behind vinyl because vinyl wallpaper is a vapor barrier, which blocks water behind it. Vinyl prevents the transfer of moisture, and for that reason, dehumidifiers cannot eliminate moisture effectively from the wall. Our team can dry the walls covered with vinyl by removing the vinyl wall covering after communicating with you and the insurance adjuster. We can also eliminate the base molding, drill holes and force air into the wall cavity without ruining the wallpaper.

If you need flood restoration services for your commercial property in Canoga Park, call SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Water can wreak havoc with office furniture:

Upholstery and cushions can become waterlogged

Wooden furniture is in danger of warping

Textiles might suffer from stains and discoloration

Furniture might leave rust stains on the carpet

Use fans and air movers to help furniture dry faster

Carry out spot cleaning on damaged upholstery and textiles

Use deodorizing chemicals and air scrubbers to get rid of that nasty damp smell

What about the rest of the office?

We also take care of drying out carpets and rugs, drying wall cavities and vents, and carrying out restoration throughout your building.

How Do I Clean Up After Widespread Water Loss in a Canoga Park High School?

6/18/2020 (Permalink)

Malfunctioning sprinkler systems can cause significant water damage. Should your system malfunction, call SERVPRO for fast remediation.

When fire suppression systems get tied into the main water supply, a breach in these lines can leave substantial water damage to overcome.  

There are many potential causes for a fire suppression system failure, such as breaking off one of the sprinkler heads or a misinterpreted signal in the system of your Canoga Park high school. Once water is coming from this system and tied into your primary water line servicing the building, you could contend with an endless flow of water until you shut down the water supply to this system. 

Because this plumbing network gets piped throughout the entire structure, many areas could require water restoration in your Canoga Park school. Our team of professionals works to provide complete mitigation solutions beginning as soon as we arrive, including extraction and drying efforts. In the earliest stages of the water loss incident, it is also possible for those within the school to reduce overall losses with some fast actions.  

What Can I Do to Help the Situation Before SERVPRO Arrives?  

There are a few simple steps that you can take before help arrives when it is safe to do so. There are situations where water damages can overwhelm the building too quickly to complete any of these tasks safely, and in these circumstances, it is best to vacate the premises. Safety should always be paramount in water emergencies, but when possible, here are a few steps that you can take: 

  • Shut off the water – Often, there is a ball valve attached to the primary feed line for the sprinkler system. Stopping water flow can prevent even more pooling and standing water concerns throughout the school's damaged areas. 
  • Identify the affected areas – Depending on the incorrect code or the physical damage to the suppression system, the water concerns might not be in every school area. Identifying the problem areas to convey this to our responding SERVPRO team can save time. 

How Can Professional Restorers Clean Up the Mess?  

Through both the mitigation and the restoration process, multiple tasks can recover your damaged structure. Cleaning up after a water emergency involves various phases utilizing dozens of tools and machines in our inventory. Ultimately, we can break down the restoration process into specific blocks: 

  • Extraction – Removing surface water in Canoga Park is almost always the initial actions taken during water loss incidents. Several tools can meet these criteria, but with the tile flooring throughout most of the school, submersible pumps, wet vacuums, and squeegee wands are often the ideal approaches.
  • Drying – Drying can often be a generalized part of the restoration process, but it involves several steps happening in succession. Tools like air movers and dehumidifiers are the foundation of this effort, as they promote airflow and regulate humidity as evaporation occurs.
  • Surface Cleaning – Residues and debris are a common obstacle for our SERVPRO professionals after drying. With chemical solvents and abrasive cleaning techniques, we can restore surfaces to their original appearance.
  • Moisture Meters – We can double-check our efforts and ensure that we did not miss moisture pockets during our drying phase before finalizing restoration.  

Does SERVPRO Do Repairs and Build Back?  

With a team of in-house contractors, we can offer controlled demolitions for widespread water losses and replace several damaged fixtures and materials. With several areas and materials exposed to standing water before mitigation efforts occurred, several construction solutions might be necessary to make these losses "Like it never even happened." Some of these include: 

  • Plumbing Repairs – From replacing the broken fixture on the fire suppression system to a plumbing break in one of the block walls, these repairs allow the lines to get pressurized again and water service restored to the building as soon as possible.
  • Ceiling Tile Replacement – Ceiling tiles are a typical installation in schools that can be damaged by sprinkler system malfunctions. Our contractors can replace these materials, which is often more cost-effective than attempting to dry saturated tiles. 
  • Carpet Reinstallation – Carpeted areas in the administration offices and performing arts areas can quickly absorb water damage and show clear signs of damage. Replacing these carpets is often the best approach to restoring the affected area as efficiently as possible. 

No matter how severe water losses might be in your school, our SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills team can help. Contact us 24/7 at (818) 998-1500.

What High-Tech Tools Do Commercial Water Removal Services in Canoga Park Use?

5/17/2020 (Permalink)

Water damage can be quite overwhelming. Contact our knowledgeable SERVPRO team when your home is affected.

The Commercial Water Removal Industry Has Advanced Greatly and Currently Employs Numerous New State-Of-The-Art Tools to Perform its Services.

When a person thinks about water removal services, they rarely imagine them as being “high-tech.”  They often think this work is simplistic and merely concerns vacuuming up standing water in fairly conventional ways.  Moreover, people often think that such services are quite limited in their drying methods and ability to preserve or restore affected structures and items.  However, this is not the case in reality.  The industry has advanced dramatically and water removal companies like SERVPRO in Canoga Park have a veritable arsenal of high-tech commercial-grade equipment to resolve even the biggest, most difficult water-related jobs.  

What Technologically Advanced, Commercial-Grade Equipment Does SERVPRO Use?

When performing commercial water removal in Canoga Park, more powerful extractors and dehumidifiers are often necessary.  These tools are needed to ensure that these big jobs can be completed quickly and effectively.  They also help maintain interior climates so that further damage to structures and contents is prevented or mitigated.  SERVPRO uses the following advanced equipment to handle major commercial projects: 

  • Industrial-strength truck-mounted extractors
  • Low-grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers
  • Large trailer-mounted desiccant dehumidifiers

Using this hardware, our technicians in Canoga Park can quickly vacuum up vast amounts of standing water, remove more moisture from the air in much shorter periods of time, and speed up the overall drying process.

What Exactly Does This High-Tech Hardware Do?

Our truck-mounted extractors are relatively complex and consist of a vacuum, engine, water pump, chemical pump, and heating system.  They can extract water and debris and clean your interiors with heated water and detergent.  LGR dehumidifiers have a double cooling system that condenses large amounts of moisture out of the air, even below forty grains/pound.  Trailer-mounted dehumidifiers, using wheels coated with silica gel and other adsorbents, attract enormous amounts of moisture from incoming air and then release it into the out-going airstream.  These large appliances rapidly reduce the humidity ratio and water vapor pressure, and maintain an environment conducive to drying.

Commercial Water Damage In Your Canoga Park Office

“Like it never even happened.”

Commercial Water Damage from Standing Water in Canoga Park Office

When a pipe breaks in a building overnight, the potential for the water to pour into an office and leave behind a large amount of water damage can be significant. It is vital for cleanup of the water to occur it spreads and affects a larger area.

SERVPRO has an organized approach to the cleanup of commercial water damage in Canoga Park properties. Upon arrival, the technicians check to ensure the water is shut off and begin extraction efforts.

Advanced Moisture Detection
The technicians have the equipment to locate water under floors and behind walls. This scoping action is an integral part of water loss restoration as finding all areas of water migration assists with avoiding additional issues such as mold and musty odors.

Special Attention to Restoration vs. Replacement
Whenever possible, SERVPRO technicians try to restore items damaged by water through their various cleaning methods. Bacteria set up rapidly in standing water, and fast extraction is crucial to halt the degradation of the water quality from clean to gray to black rapidly.

Extraction Equipment
The portable pumps have the suction to pull even deeply embedded water out of the structure and carpet. The techs do several passes over the loss area to ensure they remove as much moisture as possible before drying. There is no delay in the cleaning up deep water, as the techs have access to submersible pumps.

Controlled Demolition as Needed
Sheetrock that has wicked moisture and shows signs of warping or buckling has no potential for restoration. Techs measure above the waterline by several inches and cut the damaged area away. This action halts the absorption of water and readies the wall for easy repairs. Industrial carpet and glued down tiles commonly delaminate after exposure to standing water. The techs inspect both types of flooring for the possibility of reuse through their cleaning and restoration methods.

Limit Disruptions During Mitigation
Whenever possible, SERVPRO dries the contents in place to limit disruptions to the office. This process works in favor of companies as there is very little to do after SERVPRO completes the restoration other than reopening and getting back to business.

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500 can be on-site quickly to cleanup commercial water damage and restore the property to its preloss condition, “Like it never even happened.”

Hazardous Situations Solved by Commercial Water Removal, Allowing Restart of Plant Operations in Canoga Park

Whenever a pipe breaks, vats overflow, or the roof leaks during a storm, your Canoga Park plant's safety levels can plummet. Not only are accidents of the slip and fall variety more likely, but chemical contamination and electrical hazards also increase. Federal regulations require different protocols for different situations, including the evacuation of your facilities. Getting the water out of the equation decreases the problem's severity and allows you to concentrate on any additional issues.

After an accident, plant managers in Canoga Park need rapid water removal, and SERVPRO carries all the necessary equipment to get things done swiftly. Our equipment allows us to extract vast volumes of water at a steady rate. A large water supply pipe, with its high pressure, can flood a factory very quickly. Shutting off the main valve into the plant might cause a hardship in the lavatories and kitchen facilities, but until the line's repairs seal off the break, such shut-offs remain necessary.

When water damage comes from a break in a level not on the ground, getting it extracted before it can drain through the building's structure can protect many interior components. Moisture can spread very quickly from one area to another place. We need to protect the machines in your factory like we protect the structure. The moving parts inside machinery can corrode if humidity levels remain elevated significantly above normal. Malfunctioning equipment can injure workers in the vicinity and fail to function.

Just like our pump trucks have different attachments to remove water in its liquid form, they also have attachment points for us to hook up other extraction equipment. Our crew members use portable units that function like the well-known wet-vac but with a much larger tank. Getting the floors dry makes them safer by providing visibility and traction.

Our pump trucks also help us with removing water vapor in the building's air and many other components. Metal fabricated warehouses with or without interior structural materials can rust after prolonged exposure to moisture. When walls retain water from a top-down water line break, we can aerate the interior environment and get it dry from the inside to the outer surface, increasing the effectiveness of any air movers and desiccant machines present.

When necessary, our building services department crew helps with other aspects of our customers' property. HVAC and electrical systems, in addition to plumbing, are handled by our highly experienced professionals.

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills' employees realize that strict Federal and California regulations regarding worker safety and facility management exist and that failure to adhere to such standards can create gaps leading to injury or worse. Plant closure means lost revenue and missed shipments. Call us at (818) 998-1500, 24/7 for emergency response.

Speeding Up The Drying Process As Part Of Our Water Cleanup Service For Canoga Park

The presence of unwanted water in your home can be more than just an inconvenience. Water incidents can occur because of blocked or malfunctioning drains, split or burst pipes, backed up sewer points as well as human errors like leaving a faucet open overnight. In some cases, water may be contained in a pre-sealed area, like a washroom, and can be mopped up yourself. However, in many situations, sealant can be worn away or non-existent, which can result in a flow of water from the initial point of access to floors, furnishings, carpets, and stairs.

Sometimes water situations get out of hand, but you can arrange water cleanup services in Canoga Park by calling us on our emergency call line. SERVPRO operates a large inventory of water extraction device and uses local technicians with a broad knowledge-base in cleaning, drying, and securing your property against future damages. Our technicians come from the local area, which means they have an intimate understanding of the types of architecture, plumbing, and fittings that are common in this region.

Combine that knowledge with industry-leading training and equipment, and you can be sure that SERVPRO is capable of restoring your property to a preloss condition after a water spill. Our trucks come fully-stocked with water extraction and specialty drying units including:

• Centrifugal Air Movers
• Portable / Truck-mounted Extractors
• Box Fans
• Air Filtration Units
• Injectidry Systems
• Drying Mats

Leaks that occur on the upper levels of your home can complicate the drying situation. Water naturally migrates downwards, so a leak in your second-floor bathroom, could result in water dripping from your light fittings in the floor directly underneath. SERVPRO technicians are adept at removing obstacles such as wallpaper, bathroom tiles, carpeting, or linoleum to gain access to the affected area. Resilient materials can often be restored to a good, preloss condition. However, older materials like the wallpaper may be discarded and replaced.

Once your technician has access to the affected area, they can work quickly to establish air circulation by placing centrifugal air movers. Higher temperatures can speed up the drying procedure by allowing the surrounding air to hold more moisture. SERVPRO can use portable heaters, or heating elements found in our equipment, to encourage evaporation. We use our training to ensure the procedure is completed as quickly as possible with as little inconvenience to the homeowner. At the end of service, our team can handle your insurance paperwork for a stress-free claim.

Water incidents do not need to cause significant stress and pressure. Contact SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500, today.

Ring SERVPRO for Fast and Professional Water Damage Cleanup at Your Canoga Park Hotel

Commercial Water Damage Crews In Canoga Park Discuss Potential Problems With Hotels

Hotels in Canoga Park are one type of business that has several water lines running fluids in and out of them. The more water that runs through a building, the bigger the chance commercial water damage can occur. Once a pipe supplying one of your hotel rooms with water breaks, the moisture can affect several places. The liquid H2O first follows gravity and heads straight to the floor, and then it starts to spread out horizontally. In multi-level buildings, the seepage may affect other rooms in the verticle tower. As soon as you notice a plumbing failure inside one of your hotel rooms, it is wise to call in a professional commercial water damage restoration company such as SERVPRO.
At SERVPRO, our technicians know that when it comes to working on a project in your place of business, that time is money. Our water restoration technicians or WRTs know ways to mitigate commercial water damage in Canoga Park promptly. We start by being able to answer our phones 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Our WRTs live in the area so that our team is ready to respond after we receive your emergency phone call. We can get to your hotel quickly and start assessing the situation.
We first figure out which rooms inside your hotel got negatively affected by the water leak. We do this by using moisture sensors to detect the presence of water inside the carpets, drywall, and wooden items inside your hotel rooms. Our instruments can tell us where the damage exists, and they let us know how wet your drywall and wooden materials got as a result of the plumbing failure.
Once we determine the severity of the situation, we start the mitigation process by extracting moisture while it is in its liquid form. Once all of the liquid H2O gets removed by our advanced pumps and wet vacs, we begin the applied structural drying or ASD process. During the ASD stage, we set up dehumidifiers and air movers to help speed up the natural drying and evaporation process. All this work is done keeping in mind to minimize disruption to the guests while ensuring the rooms are available for future bookings.
If you ever notice a water pipe leaking inside your hotel, call SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500 seven days a week.

This might involve small puddles under equipment or hidden water inside cracks in the concrete slab. SERVPRO works with you during the water damage mitigation process and does everything possible to assist you in reducing associated costs.
We use different equipment to bring water vapor levels back down to normal. Air movers keep water vapor from condensing while desiccant machines extract the moisture from the air as it passes through. Our Injectidry equipment sends warm, dry air into small cavities in walls, ceilings, and flooring to speed up evaporation rates. Normal humidity does not permit mold to grow, and it also does not facilitate water damage in spreading. Cleaning up any current water damage in your warehouse can take place once the conditions that created it no longer exist.

How Our Professionals Mitigate Commercial Water Damage And Foul Odors In Your Canoga Park Hotel

10/1/2018 (Permalink)

One cause of bad odors hotels in Canoga Park might experience come from commercial water damage.

Your Hotel's Odor Control Needs After Mitigation Of Commercial Water Damage In Canoga Park

Many sources of unwanted odors can occur in a busy hotel in Canoga Park. Guests' activities from smoking to accidents can cause bad odors to linger long after check-out time, and regular cleaning by your staff might not eliminate them entirely.

One cause of bad odors hotels in Canoga Park might experience come from commercial water damage. Even after mitigation of such damage finishes and workers leave, bad odors can still permeate the air. SERVPRO can help you get things back to normal in such situations. When we provide water damage mitigation services, we also include odor control.

Because we only remove materials that sustained damage, other materials that require cleaning and nothing else remain intact and in place. Sometimes the microscopic changes that take place and the by-products involved in the changes materials suffer when becoming damaged by water create unpleasant odors. These odors can seem permanent, but our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) can rid your hotel of the problem.

We use hydroxyl and ozone-producing machines. However, we cannot safely use ozone in occupied areas, so we rely on hydroxyl gas instead. This gas is so potent, and it can remove the worst odors. Many factories use hydroxyl where odor control is essential to workers' comfort and safety.

When we perform water damage mitigation, we use air scrubbers, as these greatly diminish the amount of dust and debris in the air. These can eliminate many odors, but even with the best units, odors can still linger. When carpeting becomes saturated with water, odors can develop long before physical damage occurs. Such carpeting often remains in place without the need to remove and replace it. However, we can solve the odors stemming from the offending areas with injections of odor-eliminating gels. These can also provide a means to scent the area with something more pleasant.

Regardless of how badly your water damage issues were in the past, solving the odors left behind can make your hotel feel bright and fresh, “Like it never even happened.” Call us, SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills, at (818) 998-1500, to get things going in the right direction again.

This approach might limit some of the amenities or available rooms that you have to offer, but does not stifle the flow of guests, either. Our technicians work quickly to extract any present water, to dry it completely, and to further assess the situation for lingering moisture that could cause greater concerns in the immediate future.

It is likely that your hotel has maintenance and custodial services, but professional restoration is much faster and more efficient overall. A single bad YELP review could throttle your business, so take the necessary steps to get the job done correctly.

If you have a water damage event in your hotel, you should not waste any time to get the problem resolved. Give our experienced SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills technicians a call today at (818) 998-1500.

Mitigating Commercial Fire Damage in a West Hills Movie Theater

6/10/2018 (Permalink)

West Hills Commercial Properties Like Movie Theaters Rely on SERVPRO for Fire & Smoke Damage Cleanup and Restoration

SERVPRO Strives to Cleanup and Restore Commercial Buildings After Fire & Smoke Damaging Events

Many people love watching movies at home, but a trip out to see the latest release with the family or friends rates very high on many people's list of fun things to do around West Hills. Fire regulations forbid smoking, but offenders still do break the rules. When this happens, avoiding getting caught often trumps putting a cigarette out safely.

If a West Hills theater suffers commercial fire damage because of a smoker, the costs to repair everything "Like it never even happened" can become a major setback. At SERVPRO, we work with your insurance company to help make sure that all damaged areas receive the attention necessary while keeping costs as low as possible for you, the customer.
Fire damage can easily affect any area of your business, including food products, carpeting, seating, walls, doors and entryways, and anything else. Water from firefighters can also cause problems, and we are ready to help you deal with this effectively. Smoke odors caused by soot can continue to pose severe problems for patrons far into the future if not treated properly.
Certified by the IICRC, SERVPRO technicians easily and quickly remove damaged sections of materials in small pieces so they can fit into double bags, making for easier removal. We bring in replacement materials after we finish all of the other work. This prevents moisture from extinguishing the fire from affecting it and also keeps it safely out of the way while we work.
Both moisture in the air and odor-causing particles can easily stay there unless removed. This is why we use our air scrubbing machinery. Even with wiping every surface down to remove soot, the odor can still bother people. High levels of humidity not only make these odors ore noticeable, but they also make it easier for mold and mildew to begin growing. These microbes can grow almost anywhere, including under seats and also between them, and anywhere else inside your theater. There is also the concern of patrons tracking mold spores home with them.
When odor remains, we can use ozone treatments, or thermal fogging. Both can rigorously decrease the amount of odor experienced, with thermal fogging being the more effective of the two choices in most situations. Thermal fogging techniques mimic the pathways that the smoke followed much more than ozone methods do, making it more reliable. Hydroxyl generators can also be very effective devices to neutralize malordous particlulates. Indoor air quality of a high level is a crucial aspect of the overall treatment.
SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills' employees love watching movies, much like everyone else, and wants to help ensure that your movie theater or other workplace remains a safe place for families to enjoy some time together. Call us at (818) 998-1500 for help.

SERVPRO Provides Safe and Low-Profile Water Removal for Schools in Canoga Park

6/1/2018 (Permalink)

Rely on SERVPRO to assist with water damages found in schools

How SERVPRO can help remove water damage from schools

To avoid interruptions to administrative and classroom functions, water removal from schools in Canoga Park must be done quickly and with minimal impact on day-to-day operations. Furthermore, a delay in treatment can create safety hazards such as mold growth that may force students out of entire sections of the campus to temporarily crowd into other buildings or possibly even a different school. Through decades of servicing communities nationwide, SERVPRO has cultivated an understanding of how vital fast and low-profile water removal is in public places and has developed a versatile, ironclad plan to handle any situation.

Keeping Classrooms Safe
Both legal and social expectations for schools in Canoga Park require water removal to be prompt and effective. Providing a safe and problem-free environment for children to learn should be a top priority, and rather than allowing facilities to remain unfixed and unused, most parents and community members expect the school to do whatever it can to reopen classrooms and amenities quickly. SERVPRO keeps costs down and work times short while still making sure to remove any and all water from the area, preventing long-term issues and mold damage from arising after we depart.

Operating With a Minimal Profile
Our technicians take care to avoid creating significant obstacles and impediments to students during their work, remaining in as small of an area as possible and avoiding practices that disrupt classroom learning when they can. Our focus is on mitigating as much hassle and trouble for your staff and students as possible, even if it means taking on extra work for our personnel.

Working Within Regulations

Water damage in any part of your commercial kitchen needs to be dealt with right away before it helps feed mold. Contact SERVPRO for remediation.

Team SERVPRO Uses Modern Equipment to Help Detect the Presence of Water in Your Commercial Space

Your restaurant in Canoga Park focuses heavily on the food that you provide to your customers, but also in providing a quality, memorable experience for every patron that comes through your door. When something like a water emergency threatens the entirety of your businesses from the food making to serving your customers, you do not have a second to lose. Professional restoration services can get your doors back open quickly, or in some cases, work around your staff to allow your restaurant to stay functional while restoration efforts are underway.
Fighting off commercial water damage in your Canoga Park restaurant might seem like something that you should attempt to do alone. If you can suppress the initial appearance of the water issue, your doors can stay open.

Unfortunately, with water damages, it is often the areas that you cannot see that provide some of the most detrimental lingering effects. Contacting our professional restoration specialists at SERVPRO can help you to get the problem resolved completely, leaving no traces of the damage to develop into something worse over time.
From the moment that our experienced technicians arrive at your restaurant, our priority is to understand better the full scope of the damage you face. Through the use of both thorough visual inspections as well as thermal imagery technology, our team can assess the accessible areas and view inside of walls and under flooring to see the farthest reaches of the damage. This process aids our specialists in determining what equipment is necessary to complete the job at hand.
While you never want to have to close your doors to the public, as this is the lifeblood of the restaurant that you run, this might be a necessity to more expediently clean up the mess you face. The longer that you put off this need, the more time things like mold growth have a chance to develop. This issue would undoubtedly close your doors for a much longer time.
When your restaurant gets impacted by a water emergency of any size, you can always trust in SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills to help you clean up the mess and set things right again. Our emergency response team is available 24/7 by calling (818) 998-1500.

Saving Your Winnetka Retail Store From Water Damage

1/22/2018 (Permalink)

Time is money in the retail industry, and the longer that your doors stay closed, the more profits you stand to lose.

Water Damage To Your Retail Store

Your Winnetka retail store depends significantly on the foot traffic that you can get through the door every day and customers that you can depend on to come back and shop again. While you might have all of the pieces in place to pull in customers and retain loyalty in others, an unforeseen water emergency might derail your efforts entirely if it is not dealt with quickly. Time is money in the retail industry, and the longer that your doors stay closed to those willing to spend their money, the more profits you stand to lose.

Water damage to your Winnetka store can rear its ugly head in some different ways from faulty plumbing to over-pressurized sprinkler pipes. In some cases, nearby stores might cause water damage to their facility as well as yours through shared walls. Whatever the case, professional assistance is what you need to get the damage restored and your business ready for the customers that it needs to stay in the black.

Our SERVPRO professionals can appreciate the time constraints that you are under to keep your business running smoothly. Not only are you pressed to reopen your doors in the event of water damage to some regions of the store, but there is also a significant pressing risk of damage to your stock and supply of the goods you are trying to sell. Our team can work quickly to ensure that the least amount of damage occurs and use our expertise and equipment towards restoring that damage as efficiently as possible.

Drying efforts are a combined effort between air movers and spot water extraction with wet vacs. Our team uses thermal imagery to assess further damage inside of the walls where the source of the problem might have been to ensure that the water is thoroughly dried. If the drywall has been compromised through this incident, or in the restoration and repair efforts, our experienced SERVPRO experts have the tools and experience to repair this as well.

Ultimately, your store depends on its doors being open to the public. While you cannot account for water emergencies that might affect your business, you can always count on SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills to help you put things right again. You can reach our emergency response team 24/7 at (818) 998-1500.

Commercial Water Damage Can Affect Spas and Gyms in Canoga Park

12/7/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO can remediate water damage while keeping your gym, spa, or fitness center open and running.

SERVPRO Provides Quick and Efficient Water Damage Restoration Services

Many people in Canoga Park have developed an interest in staying fit by increasing the amount of exercise they engage in while still pampering themselves. A spa and gym membership fills this need for many individuals, while also providing real-time socialization with others.

The management of spas, gyms, and other fitness centers in Canoga Park understand that showering, spa treatments, and swimming can cause commercial water damage to their facilities. All pose problems by causing ongoing moisture accumulation, and efforts at dehumidification might not always provide the desired results. The results achieved can also vary considerably.

This inability to maintain a stable level of humidity inside your facility is a common complaint of similar businesses. High amounts of moisture that remain in the air can produce dampness, chilly air, and different types of water damage. SERVPRO can help you avoid the effects of water damage in your building from becoming harmful and unsightly.

Paint on concrete walls can begin peeling and flaking from exposure to high levels of moisture. Metal equipment can corrode or rust. Shower stalls can develop mold and mildew. Exercise pads can retain smells and odors, as can carpeting and larger rugs. Foam composites such as some indoor tracks begin to deteriorate when exposed to moisture.

Our professional technicians can solve all of these situations, and many others, quickly and efficiently. We are trained to work in areas where our customers' clients conduct their activities and to refrain from impeding their actions. We only want to resolve the problem of water damage through remediation without disturbing anyone present. We know your business depends on your clients' enjoyment and use of your facility and we do not want to jeopardize that in any manner.

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills is your locally owned and operated restoration company, and we are here for your business. We want you to succeed, and keeping water damage under control helps us achieve our goals. Call us at (818) 998-1500 to talk to us about our 24-hour service.
