Why Water Damage Due to Appliance Malfunction in El Centro

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO will help with you water damage clean up in El Centro, from a malfunction.

Let us show you Why in your El Centro Home

When you hear the words water cleanup services, you probably have visions of a robust flow of water over staircases, carpet, and furniture. You may even picture yourself wading through your home while your belongings float all around you. In reality, water cleanup services are necessary for less dramatic occasions. A simple malfunction in your dishwasher can make it overflow, allowing water and soap duds to reach every corner of your kitchen, soaking baseboards, cabinets and furniture alike. Thankfully, professional services are at the ready to help you navigate this emergency.

SERVPRO is the water cleanup solution for your El Centro home. Our technicians are available 24/7 to take your call and kick off the restoration process. Our team is trained to handle jobs regardless of size, and we are here to apply our certified knowledge for your benefit; all you need to do is call and let us do the rest. 

Safeguarding your home is our top priority, and we encourage you to take some initial steps while our team arrives. Quick action makes a significant difference in mitigating your losses, so make sure to take the following steps:

-Turn off the water source causing the problem

-Soak up as much water as you can using towels and mops

-Remove unaffected items from the area, so they do not become collateral damage to any standing water

-Open windows and doors and turn on any fans that may help with air circulation

Once our SERVPRO team arrives, we can take over and proceed to extract water from your kitchen using submersible pumps or handheld devices. As we dry, we monitor humidity levels until they reach optimal readings, and then proceed with disinfecting solutions as necessary. Luckily, appliances mostly leak clean water, so unwanted debris and bacteria is not typically an issue. However, leaving your home completely dry is crucial in avoiding the proliferation of mold in the future, which is why our industry-grade measuring tools are essential in the restoration process. 

Do not let water damage overwhelm you. SERVPRO of El Centro/Salton City is here to help. Call us at (760) 337-5858 and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

We Act Fast To Restore Your Fire Damaged Items

Fire damage remediation can be arduous. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for assistance.

Tips for Cleaning Up Your El Centro Home After Fire Damage

Fires consume everything in their wake and threaten human lives in the process. However, what occurs after a home fire is just as critical. A fire can continue ruining your El Centro property and its contents long after it has been extinguished. The smoke clouds that fires produce leave harmful chemicals and particles behind.  

If your El Centro residence has fire damage, you should begin the cleanup process quickly to prevent further smoke damage. The smoke from burning materials generates soot and sends caustic chemicals wafting into the air. The chemicals and soot can settle down on surfaces and cling tightly to them, creating a persistent burnt odor that fails to dissipate after using conventional cleaning methods. The caustic chemicals can also combine with moisture in the air to form acids that ruin fabric, metals, and wood. The following tips can help you remove smoke, soot, and odors from clothes, furniture, and other items.

  • Allow air to circulate – Open windows in each room to allow for increased ventilation and use fans. Ventilating a home helps decrease the odor and dry out the moisture damage that happened during the fire extinguishing process.

  • Remove items holding the smoke scent – This includes clothing, furniture, linens, and anything that is not salvageable like wallpaper, insulation, and carpet. Removing these items makes it easier to eliminate the odors.

  • Remove loose soot on walls – You can do this with a dry chemical sponge or vacuum cleaner.

  • Remove soot from clothing – Take clothes outside, attach the plain attachment of your vacuum cleaner and run it over the surface of the clothes. You may also shake the clothes gently to remove the soot.

  • Deodorize your clothing – Wash clothes in warm water with detergent for 1 to 5 launderings to eliminate the scent.   

  • Clean your furniture – Use a flat attachment to vacuum the soot off your wood furniture. If the wood furniture is finished, you can use the brush attachment and rub the bristles gently along the surface of the furniture. For leather furniture, use a flat attachment to vacuum the soot and then apply leather soap to a clean cloth and use it to wipe the leather.

If the smoke smell lingers, contact SERVPRO franchise professionals to help you eliminate it. We have advanced equipment like Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers and hydroxyl generators that can remove the odors. We can also pack the affected contents in your home and clean them thoroughly in our facilities.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also deep clean all hard surfaces in your home, like walls, cabinets, and floors. We also clean soft surfaces like rugs, carpets, and upholstery. We also inspect for pockets of odor in wall cavities, spaces above suspended ceilings and crawl spaces. Our crew isolates odor pockets and thermal fogs them.

For effective cleanup of your fire-damaged home call SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City at (760) 337-5858 for help. We can eliminate the smoke, soot, and odor to make it “Like it never even happened.”

How Does SERVPRO Perform Water Cleanup And Save Carpeting In El Centro?

We know local residents have choices when it comes to restoration services with issues such as water cleanup. The critical factor in avoiding loss of building materials and possessions is no delays in the start of water extraction and drying.

When SERVPRO handles water cleanup in El Centro residences, we know it cannot wait until the next business day. The property must quickly receive attention, and that is why our emergency response teams are available 24-hours a day to come to the site.

Our location holds a contactor license, and this lets us take some of the anxiety off of property owners by offering both cleanup and reconstruction as needed, so the mitigation process from start to finish is seamless.

We have specialized water extraction equipment for all types of situations to ensure the best outcome. When the carpeting is affected by water, this is also an opportunity to get the floor coverings deep cleaned. We have several methods for cleaning, including:

    •    Bonnet Cleaning: a low-moisture process that cleans the top of short pile carpets
    •    Hot Water Extraction: Deep and sanitizing cleaning method for short and long pile carpeting
    •    Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore high traffic areas with ground-in dirt
    •    Showcase Premier Cleaning: A form of deep cleaning that surpasses all other methods
    •    Dry Cleaning: SERVPRO uses this when colors have the potential to bleed during different types of cleaning

The drying of carpeting is accomplished on-site whenever possible, using a method known as "floating." Technicians loosen one side of the carpet and our air movers deliver warm, dry air under and over the carpet. We can also remove the carpet for drying in-plant for reinstallation and reuse after cleaning and sanitization.

Los daños por inundación no implican necesariamente que su hogar ha sido llevado por la corriente en medio de desperdicios y contaminación. También puede suceder cuando algún árbol cae sobre su techo y deja su casa expuesta a los elementos del clima, permitiendo asi que el agua entre a su hogar.

Estos objetos pueden incluir muebles, tapicería y demás materiales porosos. Al removerlos evitamos la propagación de microorganismos a consecuencia de la inundación.

Simulataneamente nos enfocamos en extraer el agua y devolver la humedad a niveles aceptables. Para lograr este objetivo aplicamos recomendaciones de la industria y utilizamos equipos professionales, incluyendo-

Is This Really a Flood In Brawley?

7/14/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO knows how important flood damage from a storm can damage your home.

We know the right steps to take for your Brawley home.

Flood damage does not necessarily mean that your house floats away amidst debris and devastation. It can also happen when heavy tree branches fall onto your roof and leave your home exposed to the elements, allowing outside water to damage an area of your home. As incredible as it may seem, we are all susceptible to flood damage whenever torrential downpours occur, or water levels rise. Being prepared to deal with the consequences of water in your home makes the restoration process quicker and can help mitigate your losses. 

When you find the outside creeping into your home in Brawley in the form of flood damage, reach out to SERVPRO for our expert services. Our services are available around the clock by just calling our number and having our crew arrive at your home. Once we ensure that there are no safety concerns, we can begin to look at the steps necessary to restore your property. 

The water entering your home likely brings with it debris and pollution, so our SERVPRO team works quickly to remove any materials that holds black water in them. Typically, we dispose of porous materials such as upholstery, carpets, and fabrics that have been saturated with outside water. By removing these items, we help prevent the spread of organisms in your home as a result of the flooding. Simultaneously, we focus on extracting water and returning humidity levels back to normal. To do so, we rely on best practices and industry-grade equipment such as- 

-truck mounted pumps 

-submersible pumps 

-air circulators 

-wet/dry vacuums 

These are only examples of the tools available to our trained technicians to restore your home. Our expert SERVPRO staff determines the suitability of each technique depending on your circumstances. 

Flooding can be very scary, even when it is not catastrophic. SERVPRO of El Centro/Salton City is your ally in this critical time. Call us at (760) 337-5858 and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

We Help You Get Back To Business After A Water Damage Disaster

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

The condensation line clogged in the attic causing water damage and then secondary damage, mold growth. We arrived right away and began restoration.

Helping Business Stay Strong After Water Damage to an El Centro Restaurant

Through years of helping local service sector businesses with water removal projects and other time-sensitive damage restoration procedures, we at SERVPRO know all too well that we have to work fast to get your doors open faster and avoid as much revenue loss as possible. All of our commercial procedures focus on timeliness to get you back to normal operations faster, but we also take care to do our work thoroughly and leave your place looking "Like it never even happened."

Getting Doors Open Faster

Depending on how extensive the need for water removal for your restaurant in El Centro is, you may very likely need to close doors for the entire duration of our drying and restoration procedures. Because every day of work means lost revenue for you, we prioritize sending our best crews and resources to local businesses with time-sensitive issues like flooding or widespread water damage. If the building contains any standing water, we use our powerful truck-mounted extraction pumps to remove these waters as quickly as possible. Once this process finishes, we set up a careful arrangement of air movers and dehumidifiers that can take moisture out of the floors and other materials and collect it into disposable containers. Through these specially-designed tools and procedures, we can complete most water removal projects within one week.

Thorough Work Is Essential

Making sure we remove all water possible from your establishment is just as important to us as getting the job done quickly. Customers tend to notice even minute signs of damage, such as a warped patch of carpeting or a discolored stain on baseboards. Sometimes, we even have to come in and help out a business that received water removal service from someone else or allowed the drying to happen over time, but still shows signs of damage that can drive away customers. We apply a rigorous evaluation process to ensure that no spot of water damage remains untouched and specialize in restorative procedures that return the building interior to the exact state it was in before the disaster.

SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City is an expert provider of damage mitigation and restoration services for businesses in the area. Call us as soon as possible after a disaster at (760) 337-5858.

Do You Have the Right Equipment to Restore Water Damage?

6/17/2019 (Permalink)

Our SERVPRO crew has the proper equipment to clean up and restore your water damage "Like it never even happened."

Using the Right Equipment For Water Damage Restoration

Until you go through a water event, you cannot fully comprehend the peculiarities of restoring your home. When you visit the nearest home improvement store or even your local supermarket, you see people renting water extraction equipment, wet/dry vacuums to dry out their homes. However, much like humans, water damage comes in different sizes and shapes, and there is not a universal solution to treat it. Reaching out to a team used to dealing with water extraction and drying is the best decision you can make. 

In El Centro, SERVPRO is your best resource to address water damage to your home. Our team of water damage restoration technicians (WRT) is available 24/7 for your convenience. Our formal instruction, as well as our on-the-field experience, come together to create a plan specific to your needs and your damage. Although we also employ wet/dry vacuums and dehumidifiers, these are only a portion of all the tools and techniques available to our technicians.

A variety of equipment makes a difference when there is water in your home. Failure to address its presence completely and quickly can threaten your structure by saturating building materials such as drywall. It can also seep even further into your belongings, resulting in a total loss rather than their recovery. This is why at SERVPRO, we have available industry-grade extractors, drying mats, and injectidry technology, among others. This group of equipment focuses on reaching the most remote corners of your home. As we return humidity levels to normal, we guide ourselves with moisture meters and infrared technology that can detect water deposits even when they are not evident to the naked eye.

SERVPRO of El Centro/Salton City is fully equipped to handle the water damage to your home. Call us at (760) 337-5858 and let us customize a plan that addresses your specific needs, so your home looks “Like it never even happened.”

Tiene Usted el Equipo Correcto Para Restaurar los Daños Causados por el Agua?

6/17/2019 (Permalink)

En SERVPRO, tenemos el equipo correcto para limpiar y restaurar los daños causados por el agua.

Usando El Equipo Correcto es Beneficioso Para Restaurar el Daño del Agua

Hasta que usted pasa por un evento de agua, no puede realmente comprender las peculiaridades que implica restaurar su hogar. Cuando usted visita su tienda o supermercado local, ve aspiradoras para agua y otros electrodomésticos diseñados para la extracción de agua. Sin embargo, al igual que los humanos, no todos los daños causados por el agua son iguales y no hay una solución universal para resolverlos. Llamar a un equipo professional que está acostumbrado a la extracción de agua es su mejor decisión.

En El Centro, SERVPRO es su mejor recurso para tratar los daños causados por el agua. Nuestro equipo de técnicos especializados está convenientemente disponible 24 horas al día, 7 días a la semana. Nuestra educación formal y experiencia laboral se unen para crear un plan específico a sus necesidades y el daño que ha sufrido. Aunque también utilizamos los equipos disponibles en las tiendas, incluyendo aspiradoras y deshumidificadores, estos son apenas una parte de todas las herramientas y técnicas a la disposición de nuestros técnicos.

Una variedad de equipos hace la diferencia cuando hay agua en su hogar. La demora en remover completa y rápida mente el agua puede agravar los daños al saturar materiales de construcción, como los paneles en sus paredes. El agua también puede saturar aún más sus muebles y alfombras, causando una pérdida total en lugar de una simple restauración. Es por esto que en SERVPRO contamos con extractores industriales, tapetes de secado y tecnología de inyección de aire, entre otros. A la vez que devolvemos los niveles de humedad a la normalidad, monitoreamos el progreso con medidores especializados y tecnología infrarroja que nos ayudan a descubrir depósitos de agua en los lugares más recónditos.

SERVPRO of El Centro/Salton City está completamente equipado para resolver el daño causado por el agua en su hogar. Llámenos al (760) 337-5858 y permítanos hacer un plan específico a sus necesidades para que su casa luzca como que nada hubiera pasado.
