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.


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


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.


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


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.
