What Materials are More Susceptible to Water Damage?

SERVPRO Technicians Know How to Treat Different Types of Materials to Provide Water Cleanup in Your Highland Park Home.

Whenever there is a water intrusion in a home in Highland Park, it can lead to structural elements and the content of the home becoming damaged. The extent of the damage involves many factors, including how bad the water intrusion is, the type of material involved, and how long the items sit in the water. Certain materials absorb water easier than others. They are called hygroscopic materials.

What Type of Materials are Considered Hygroscopic?

Burst pipes, a dishwasher overflowing, or a water heater leak can send gallons of water pouring into a home. This can lead to a serious amount of water damage in a Highland Park home. Certain materials in the home readily absorb and take up moisture. These hygroscopic materials hold water vapor that is in the air too. They have a high permeance factor, which is how water vapor flows through an item. SERVPRO technicians are well-trained in treating hygroscopic materials and water extraction. The following items are hygroscopic in nature:

  • Carpet and carpet padding
  • Particleboard, drywall
  • Upholstery
  • Unfaced insulation
  • Fabric items such as clothing, linens, and drapery

Water Restoration Experts

One of the critical factors our technicians consider when restoring materials is permeance. The good news with hygroscopic and high permeance items is they also dry well. SERVPRO has standards of drying for different elements. Their goal is to reach equilibrium moisture content (EMC). At this point, no moisture is moving from the wet content to the dry air. Our technicians understand the mechanics behind making all of this come together. They use a combination of tools and techniques to ensure your home is returned to you, if possible, “Like it never even happened.”

Drying the Structure of Your Highland Park Home After a Flood

Why Do the Transition Phases of Water Matter While Drying in Highland Park?

Drying Materials Within Your Highland Park Home Involves a Scientific Process
It is essential to understand that drying your Highland Park home does not merely mean water extraction. Although the use of professional extraction equipment such as truck-mounted and portable extractors is critical, drying consists of so much more than just removing water from your home. To adequately dry the materials in your home, our trained technicians need to transform residual liquid water into water vapor.

Is Condensation After a Flood Dangerous?
SERVPRO Mitigates Damages Caused by Excess Moisture
After removing excess water from flood damage in Highland Park, it is crucial to keep your home free of excess moisture because it can cause secondary damage, such as mold growth and warped surfaces. Excess water in a flood-damaged environment is especially concerning because floodwater, according to the EPA S500 standard, is contaminated since it traveled over the ground, potentially coming into contact with harmful microbes. After a flood, condensation is common because warm air from the outside meets the colder air inside, causing water vapor to turn into liquid throughout your home. The moment when condensation begins is called the dew point, indicating the relative humidity (RH) in your home is 100%.

What is the Relationship Between Condensation and Evaporation?
    •    Condensation is when water vapor becomes liquid when it reaches its dew point.
    •    Evaporation is when water in liquid form turns to vapor.
    •    Warm, dry air encourages evaporation, while cool, dense air encourages condensation.

What are the Other Two Processes in Phases of Water Transition?
    •    Melting: Solid turns to liquid. For instance, when the snow melts in spring, it may cause a river to overflow and flood nearby areas.
    •    Sublimation: When solids turn directly into vapor. An example of this is "dry ice." Solid Dioxide turns instantly into vapor. Snow can also sublime directly into water vapor, skipping the liquid stage.

Does Business Insurance Cover Fire?

10/8/2020 (Permalink)

"Insurance Policy" SERVPRO helps with every step after your business has experienced a fire. Call us today at (323) 255-1001.

SERVPRO Can Work with your Policy Limits to Restore Commercial Fire Damage at your Los Angeles Business Premises.



Can policy limitations affect commercial restoration?

When a fire occurs, numerous tasks need to take place to get your Los Angeles business back to its preloss condition. Insurance policies typically have limitations on mitigation, restoration, and reconstruction. SERVPRO has experience working within the constraints of a business insurance policy. Our ethos is to restore through cleaning and restoration, which typically keeps the cost of a claim low compared to replacing large amounts of its structure or contents. We recognize how important it is for your business to recover quickly without unnecessary expense. As such, our crew chiefs can communicate with you and your insurance adjuster regarding policy limits when producing the estimate and required services.

How long does it take to produce a fire restoration estimate?

As a commercial fire damage restoration service in Los Angeles, we are not directly responsible for producing the final estimate. However, our technicians contact an adjuster with an initial verbal estimate of damage and costs within eight business hours. A verbal appraisal is typically produced once crew chiefs have completed inspection of the premises, divided debris into salvageable and non-salvageable, and put together a solid strategy for returning the business premises to its preloss condition. A verbal estimate is not set in stone, and there may be some negotiation concerning your insurance policy when in conversation with an adjuster. SERVPRO keeps business clients informed throughout the restoration of the business but can also act on their initiative to allow you to concentrate on your next steps. 

What are the contents of a verbal fire damage estimate?

An inventory of salvageable and non-salvageable items from the initial inspection of the fire loss site

Personal concerns or consternation from the business regarding restoration. For example, specialty cleaning tasks, document drying, and electronics.

Storage of business property during restoration as well as the overall schedule of service until completion

How are estimates produced for a commercial fire insurance policy?

We aim to produce an accurate estimate for our business clients, so a crew chief's initial inspection involves a test kit. Test kits are an active and authentic way of assessing the cleanability of items. We may take measurements from smoke residues, soots, or soiling and note the material of impacted surfaces. It is common for our production technicians to apply a small amount of cleaning product to a surface to test whether it is cleanable. When pre-testing damages in commercial premises, our goal is to find out what materials need replacing and what are restorable. Generally speaking, restoration is quicker and less expensive than replacing. Kitchen appliances in a restaurant, for example, may be restorable by using solvents to remove soot and smoke residues instead of replacing the whole machine, which may be restricted under your policy limits.

What is a fire damage test kit made up from?

Personal protective equipment (PPE) which may include respirators, gloves, and eyewear

Light agitation tools like steel wool, scrapers, dry cleaning sponges, and brushes

Warning equipment including hazard tapes, tags, markers, and labels

pH paper along with spray bottles of light soot and spot cleaning agents

What is the value of scoping and estimating in fire-damaged commercial premises?

The tasks of scoping and estimating in your Los Angeles business are two separate entities. When scoping, SERVPRO technicians evaluate the extent of damage that a fire causes and details any losses. We can also note down the necessary cleaning actions to restore some or all of the property. An estimate is a written version of the restoration service that details costs. Your insurance adjuster is responsible for the written assessment, but these can help a business owner to understand and file information relating to your claim. You may also opt to add on services for specific remedies that are not covered in your policy. A typical specialist service may include artwork restoration or document recovery, which could help return your business to its preloss condition.

Who are commercial property restoration estimates produced for?

The insurance adjuster that handles the claim and dispersal of payment for services in your premises to return it to its normal condition

The policyholder who can maintain and reference the estimate throughout the restoration service as well as when making their claim

SERVPRO technicians use estimates as guidance for performing restoration within the limits of your insurance policy

Using a company with experience working with commercial insurance adjusters and policies can help ensure you avoid hidden costs. Contact SERVPRO of Highland Park at (323) 255-1001 today.

Why Is Speed So Important When Dealing With Mold Damage?

Mold Don't let mold take control of your Highland Park property. Call SERVPRO today!

Highland Park Residents Do Not Want Mold Damage To Spread.

People living in Highland Park want to take good care of their homes. After all, home is where you relax after a day of work or chores, and is a great place to spend time with family and friends.

Mold damage can make Highland Park houses look unsightly and smell unpleasant. Even worse, the fungus can cause damage to all manner of household materials, including:

  • Blankets, throws, and textiles
  • Plaster and wallpaper
  • Wooden and metal furniture frames
  • Photographs, books, and artwork
  • Soft furnishings like rugs and drapes

The longer you leave mold untreated, the more damage it can create, so time is of the essence.

Can mold move from one place to another?

Yes, it is effortless for mold to move from one place to another. Mold has tube-like cells called hyphae, which join together to form a mycelium or clump of hyphae. The mycelium is where new mold spores are grown and released.

Once mold spores enter the air, they can move throughout your home on air currents, clothes, and shoes, or your pets’ coats.

How quickly can mold damage spread?

Once loose mold spores find another place with the warmth, moisture, darkness, and organic material the spores need to propagate, they can grow another mycelium quickly. Many molds can start growing within 48 hours, and once they start growing, they can release more spores to spread throughout your house.

How do I get the help I need quickly?

Call SERVPRO as soon as you notice one or more of these signs:

  • Visible patches of mold growth
  • Damp patches on the walls or ceilings
  • A musty smell with no apparent cause

We are available 24 hours a day, and we are Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Should I try to clean the mold while I wait?

No – it is better to wait for our expert technicians. Home remedies are frequently ineffective against mold and might even make it worse. It is straightforward for spores to escape and spread during cleaning. Our teams use containment, air scrubbing, and negative air machines to combat the spread of spores.

For fast and practical help with mold damage, call SERVPRO of Highland Park at (323) 255-1001.

Dry Heat and Damage of Wildfire Season Increases the Risk of Severe Flood Damage in Highland Park -- Line Up the Experts from SERVPRO for a Successful Outcome

The extremes of wildfires and torrential rains make for catastrophic results when heavy rain falls on burned over landscapes. Late summer and fall fires set up Highland Park homeowners for concern and potentially damaging consequences when winter precipitation ramps up.

How Does Wildfire Damage Increase the Severity of Flooding When the Rains Come?
Flood damage in Highland Park often includes overland flows from the nearby steep, erosion-prone mountain watershed that feeds the Arroyo Seco flowing to the south of the community. When protective trees, brush, and other vegetation burns completely, overland flooding features increased mud and silt, exposing homes to mudslides as well as water.

What Can I Expect on the Flood Damage Mitigation and Remediation Agenda When Professional Crews Arrive?
SERVPRO always stocks a robust inventory of tools, commercial-grade extraction and drying equipment, and proprietary cleaning and disinfecting equipment in our service vehicles. As our project manager assesses safety hazards and lists preliminary damage for job planning, crew members begin to perform emergency services:

    •    Secure exterior storm harm, including compromised roofs, broken windows and doors, and damaged siding
    •    Shovel dirt and debris out of flooded spaces, clearing the way for trash pumps to extract deeper water
    •    Operate truck-mounted extractors, powered by onboard generators to avoid delays if electricity is disconnected
    •    Contain contaminated water and debris for disposal according to local hazardous-waste regulations
    •    Clean and disinfect soiled surfaces with EPA-registered products
    •    Use air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry out affected spaces

The well-trained and equipped team at SERVPRO of Highland Park has experience managing extreme flood damage after wildfires. We arrive ready to “dig in” and transform your home back to preloss condition after one call to (323) 255-1001.

How Can I Prepare My Shop for Storm Damage Ahead of Time?

9/4/2020 (Permalink)

Storm clouds With SERVPRO's Emergency Ready Program (ERP), We can help your Business be better prepared for unexpected events that could occur.

Highland Park Businesses Can Prepare for Disaster with SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Program (ERP).

Highland Park is a historically rich town with an incredible diversity of ethnic groups and cultures. When in the area, you will want to stop in Galco’s Soda Pop Stop and grab a drink. It is a store that has been locally owned and operated for over 100 years. Like any town or city, Highland Park is also prone to storms that can cause severe damage to the homes and businesses in the area.

What Can ERP Do For My Shop?

Flash floods can surge through a town at rapid speeds sending vast amounts of water surging through local businesses. Disasters like this are the reason 50% of all commercial enterprises do not recover when impacted. Those that do survive a major catastrophe have a response plan in place. The Emergency READY program can provide support for your business if you ever have to deal with flood damage in Highland Park.

What are the Benefits of ERP?

Floods, fire, and other disasters can occur at any time, impacting your business and your community. By being prepared in advance, you can lessen the impact. SERVPRO’s ERP can help with that in several ways. Some of the benefits include:

  • Building trust – your clients and employees know you are prepared if something serious happens. You are looking after their interests.
  • Comprehensive information resource – all your essential information in one location.
  • Minimize problems – less business interruption and loss of revenue.
  • Timely mitigation – reduces secondary damage, saves you time and money, less downtime for cleanup and restoration.

Knowing whom to call, what to do, and what to expect when disaster strikes is vital to fast mitigation.

 Setting Up Your Emergency READY Profile

The purpose of the ERP system is to shorten the SERVPRO response time when your shop places an emergency call. The profile setup is a user-friendly, web-based interface. You input the required information, which is then available to our professional teams and allows us to get moving quicker. The faster we arrive and begin the flood damage mitigation started, the sooner you are operating at normal capacity.

Creating a company profile is the first step. The profile gets personalized with your company’s pertinent information. We have marketing representatives that can assist you with this if needed. We then work directly with your shop if an emergency, such as flooding, happens. All your business needs, any individual circumstances, and your emergency contacts are listed. There is no need to take the time to provide this information when you call. It is all at SERVPRO’s fingertips. 

Are You Prepared?

If you are a business owner, you should have a contingency plan in place. Every solid plan has three elements:

  • Incident response
  • Disaster recovery
  • Business continuity

Our ERP system is not a comprehensive contingency plan. We provide two of the three components, incident response and disaster recovery. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified technicians are well-trained to mitigate any flood damage, but our goal is to help you before anything occurs. ERP is an investment in your shop’s future well-being.

More Reasons to Consider ERP

If you own or manage multiple companies, the ERP system allows you to create a profile for each one. In a severe flooding situation, the information is available, so we know just what to do and where to go for each business. Contact management can also be organized and stored within our system. Your insurance information, utilities, suppliers, customers, and other essential contacts are available to you if you are unable to access that information because of the situation. Contact efficiency is critical in any type of disaster. Further benefits include:

  • Only pertinent information required for emergencies is stored. No unnecessary overload of info.
  • No-cost assessment of your shop.
  • Provides the information on who can authorize cleanup work to begin.
  • Facility details are kept, such as where shut-off valves are located and priority areas.
  • Establishes SERVPRO of Highland Park as your emergency disaster restoration service provider.

The ERP readiness plan allows our technicians to arrive promptly at the scene to provide emergency mitigation and get a restoration plan in place FAST. Our team already has the needed information for work approval, the shop’s layout, and the content. This cuts the initial response time drastically. Cleanup, repair, and restoration begin sooner as a result. This means your shop can be up and running much sooner than if you had no plan in place.

Do not let your business go unprotected should a storm sweep through the area bringing extensive flood damage with them. Contact SERVPRO of Highland Park at (323) 255-1001 and let us show you what ERP can do for your shop. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster

Why Is It So Important to Remove All Water and Moisture After a Water Leak In My Highland Park Home?

8/28/2020 (Permalink)

A blue and white kitchen. Don't let water damage take over your Highland Park Home. Let SERVPRO be there to complete the process correctly.

Water and Moisture Should Be Removed as Soon as Possible to Deter Any Further Water damage Issues to Your Highland Park Home

Many homeowners in Highland Park remove water and moisture after a water leak on their own. Homeowners assume that any remaining water seeping under baseboards or through the floor will dry naturally, causing little damage to the flooring, drywall, insulation, and other materials exposed to moisture.

In our experience, SERVPRO has found that all water removal in Highland Park homes and offices should be completed thoroughly to avoid any chance for mold to grow. Mold can cause health effects, odors, and even structural damage if left in place. With the right conditions such as high humidity and warmth, mold can begin growing in less than 48 hours.

Should I Call in the Experts to Help Remove Water and Moisture?

Leaks from broken plumbing, overflowing laundry machines, and sinks can quickly spread onto floors and into every crevice in the room where the leak occurred. Water can penetrate floors and into the ceiling of rooms below. These areas provide perfect conditions for the growth of mold, not to mention damage to flooring and drywall.

SERVPRO has the experience to manage these situations. We also have the equipment to effectively determine where moisture has penetrated and then return humidity levels to normal. Large air movers and dehumidifiers remove the majority of water and humidity. We use moisture probes to assess spaces behind baseboards, in ceilings, and under floors. We use specialized equipment to remove excess water from these areas and blow dry air into them to absorb moisture and completely dry the area. 

SERVPRO can provide initial water removal and mitigation services as well as reconstruction services to return your building to preloss condition. We can supervise and manage the restoration services needed to restore your home.

Call SERVPRO of Highland Park (323) 255-1001 to assist with your emergency water removal and restoration needs.

In these situations, not only do you have to contend with fire damage, but also water damage. Many people do not realize just how much water firefighting efforts can leave behind.

Even if the worst seems to have struck your home, here at SERVPRO, we can help you by:
    •    Bagging up damaged materials such as insulation, drywall, and flooring and then disposing of them
    •    Setting up extraction equipment, such as wet/dry vacuums and floor drying mats, to remove as much water as possible
    •    Cleaning up as much debris and ash as possible

Our goal is always to try and get your home feeling like it did before the damage struck. Your kitchen cannot be rebuilt until the evidence of the fire is gone, and key materials are replaced.

How Can You Remove Soot, Charring, and the Foul Odor Left Behind?

Our specialists have access to advanced technological devices that can be used together to remediate your home and leave a clean slate for rebuilding to occur on. Some of those devices include:
    •    Air scrubbers with carbon filters
    •    Ozone machines
    •    House-made cleaning solutions
    •    Sanding equipment to remove charring from framing

Our main goal is always to save as much material as we can. If a wooden beam only has a little charring, and it is safe to sand, we would rather save it than replace it. We go about all of our work this way, to help you keep costs low. Once we’ve provided a clean slate to work with, you can feel confident that your home appears, “Like it never even happened.”

Does Your Highland Park Property Need Restoration Services?

8/7/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Equipment You can depend on our professionals with state of the art equipment to clean up and restore your property so you can return safely after an incident.

Contact SERVPRO for Emergency Restoration After Water, Fire and Mold Damage.

The continued growth and experience of our SERVPRO team in the Los Angeles area we serve are among the top priorities we have. Because of this, we are not just restoration professionals that can help with water, fire, mold, flood, and storm losses, but rather a more comprehensive team that includes residential and commercial contractors capable of providing effective solutions for controlled demolition and build back. Our team's success in this realm can be attributed to the leadership of our owner, Bert Gabledon, who has more than 35 years as a licensed general contractor.

Water

Waterwise incidents are one of our most common callouts to Los Angeles homes and businesses. Because of this, the entire management and administration divisions of our SERVPRO team have gone through the coursework and training to receive their certifications in Water Restoration (WRT) through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) Many of these same technicians have additional endorsements through this standard-setting firm in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT.)

What are Initial Services Necessary After Water Loss? 

When our technicians first arrive, there is a finite timeline before Los Angeles homes and businesses become too severely damaged to protect and preserve all of the exposed areas. This makes emergency services and mitigation solutions a valuable asset of our restoration process. We can focus most on the extraction, debris removal, and pressing plumbing or appliance repairs that must occur to pressurize the water lines again.

How Can Drying Become as Efficient as Possible? 

Our drying process's efficiency is an area of water restoration where our technicians are always looking to improve. We focus on using the industry-leading equipment available for this process, which can vary based on where damage is located in your Los Angeles Homer business, the severity of the situation, and other pressing factors. Some of the efficient drying tools that we use include:

  • Air Movers
  • Desiccant Dehumidifiers 
  • Positive Pressure Systems 
  • Portable Heaters

Storm 

Storms can strike without warning and cause devastation to thousands of Los Angeles properties simultaneously. As a large loss provider, we have access to a greater pool of restoration professionals, resources, recovery equipment, and more. We have become so prepared with storm and natural disaster responses, that we have become a trusted team to address severe loss situations throughout the country, such as our response to Hurricane Harvey.

What Emergency Services Must Occur First? 

Every loss incident is on a timeline beginning as soon as we get the first notice of loss from your Los Angeles property. Addressing what your structure needs first involves both our restoration technicians in the emergency response team and our residential contractors that can address concerns such as structural breaches to the roof and wall systems that might allow flooding. Between our restoration professionals and our contractors, emergency services we provide often include:

  • Extraction
  • Repairs
  • Board Up
  • Tree Removal
  • Tarping

What Areas Need Cleaning After a Flood Loss? 

Cleaning is often one of the essential elements of the recovery process after flood damage occurs in your Los Angeles home. Natural flooding, especially, can welcome contaminants, debris, and other threats into your home that our responding technicians most address. While efforts like extraction and the earliest stages of drying have already started through the mitigation process, surface cleaning using chemical solvents, antibacterial solutions, and antimicrobial compounds are necessary to protect the property.

Commercial 

No one knows your business entirely as you do, so you can appreciate the most when it needs professional restoration after a loss incident. With thousands of companies in Los Angeles alone, the slightest hiccup and your production and availability could cost you loyal customers. For this reason, we strive to be faster in loss situations than the competition through readiness involving pre-stocked trailers, available technicians 24/7, and a pool of resources and personnel from sister franchises that can help with considerable loss incidents.

What Steps Restore Your Business After Water and Fire Losses? 

Depending on the damage to your building, water and fire losses can vary and their ease of restoration. From the time our professionals first arrive at your Los Angeles facility, we assess the structure's needs based on the damages present. This need can involve extraction, drying, cleaning, air quality control, and deodorization.

Can Cleaning Happen Without a Disaster? 

We understand that there are situations where your business might need thorough cleaning without a disaster taking place. Current events have led to a much closer look at safe and sanitary environments for staff and customers in Los Angeles businesses. We developed a thorough cleaning program for your company called Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, which ensures that the highest measures available to us get taken to provide a safe environment for all those in your building.

  • Deodorization
  • Applying Disinfectant
  • Wiping Surfaces
  • Removing Vandalism
  • Cleaning Carpet and Tile

Fire 

Many tasks must occur between our contractors and experienced restoration professionals as soon as we reach a fire-damaged address. Regardless of how this situation developed in your Los Angeles apartment or home, we must ensure that structural breaches have been managed quickly and that your personal belongings get saved from migrating fire loss effects.

How Do Soot and Other Smoke Residues Get Addressed? 

Certain other smoke residues can be a considerable challenge for even professional restoration technicians like ours. With so much of these coatings existing on the upper portions of wall systems, ceiling materials, and other high locations in your Los Angeles home, special equipment is often necessary to reach and appropriately clean these surfaces. There are many practices available for removing soot and oily residues. some of these techniques include:

  • Soda Blasting
  • Agitative Cleaning
  • Vacuuming
  • Wipe Cleaning
  • Emulsion  

When Do Repairs and Build Back Begin? 

After a structure fire in your Los Angeles home, there is a pressing need for repairs and reconstruction in most cases. With a team of in-house contractors, we can provide this seamlessly after mitigation completes.

We are a team of skilled professionals capable of helping you through nearly every phase of restoration and recovery. You can reach our experienced SERVPRO of Highland Park team anytime by calling (323) 255-1001.
