Water Damage  Do You Have the Right Equipment to Restore Water Damage? 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.”

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.

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.

Commercial SERVPRO Helps Restaurants Get Back to Business from Water Damage Don’t let water damage be your new side menu special.

Is water damage stopping your business? Call SERVPRO today.

Plumbing issues disrupt routines in a home, and it is even worse when it results in commercial water damage in a business. For health and sanitation reasons, it is vital you have water loss professionally mitigated.

SERVPRO answered a call from a restaurant that suffered water damage in El Centro from a broken seal on a supply line. It happened overnight, and an employee discovered the standing water on the floor when she arrived in the early morning hours to open the taco stand. She immediately shut off the water and mopped up as much as she could. The owner inspected the damage and thought it would be best to have the business professionally cleaned.

We try to disrupt the daily operations of a business as little as possible during the cleanup, but when we arrived on site, we advised the owner due to the danger of slip and fall accidents, closure of the eatery was necessary during the cleanup. Then the real work began; our technicians used moisture detection equipment to locate areas of water migration. We extracted the standing water that was left and removed the baseboards to ensure our pumps removed any water that ran behind them. Our technicians do several passes, so there is as little water as possible left close to the surface.

Because of the individualized attention, SERVPRO technicians pay close attention to the water extraction phase, the time needed to dry the premises is often reduced, leading to less downtime for the business. Our air movers force fast moving air over surfaces, and embedded moisture rises to the surface in response and dehumidifiers captured and removed it off-premises. This action dried the restaurant quickly, and then our technicians disinfected the affected areas, leaving the property sanitized and ready to serve hungry customers again.

Commercial water damage should always be professionally cleaned to ensure the property is left clean and sanitary. SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City at (760) 337-5858 is available 24/7 to turn around damage from water to your business, so it is "Like it never even happened."

Fire Damage Our Fast Response Can Save Your El Centro Kitchen SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City is Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Fast Response Cleanup Of Fire Damage In An El Centro Kitchen

Family dinners are a perfect occasion for trying some timeless recipes. However, when things go awry because your chicken roulade catches on fire, the resulting fire damage can create unpleasant odors, residues, and charring on your overhead cabinets and in your vents. Worse still, these odors can spread throughout your home without proper mitigation.

If your family dinner plans are put on hold by fire damage in your El Centro home, our certified SERVPRO technicians are ready to step in and save the day to restore your home to its pre-fire condition.

A fire that involves proteins such as chicken or fish can leave foul odors on top of those created by charred food particles and cooking materials. Our SERVPRO team can start mitigation by cleaning soot and residues off of surfaces in your kitchen, including on and inside cabinets. Smoke residue can turn acidic when it comes into contact with moisture, so it is crucial to eliminate soot to preserve metals and plastics on appliances and utensils in your kitchen. Our team can clean the smoke residue out of vents with vacuums, augers, brushes, and other tools to prevent the spread of odors in your home. Vacuums can also be used to clean fabrics like your kitchen drapes that may have been affected by soot.

The immense heat from a fast, dry fire can leave char that requires restoration of fixtures such as cabinetry, and our team can use a blast medium, such as baking soda, to both remove char and naturally deodorize your cabinets. From there, our odor control technicians (OCTs) can use industrial-grade dehumidifiers to address odors by eliminating them on a particle level, while fresh air is cycled through the home with the help of commercial ventilation box fans so you can get back to enjoying your kitchen as it was before the fire occurred.

SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City is Faster to Any Size Disaster. For lightning-fast response and restoration after disaster strikes in your home, call us today at (760) 337-5858.

Documenting the Flood Damage Affecting Your El Centro Home and Contents 

Some areas in El Centro can experience flooding because of already saturated ground, changes in the terrain from road and building construction, or other reasons that trap rainfall near homes.

We have the experience needed to restore the things damaged by flooding and get your home back into shape, “Like it never even happened.” While we do this, we place different items from inside your home into several categories.

We can restore many of the belongings, if needed, at our facility, saving you the cost and trouble of replacing affected items. Moving these contents also provides us with additional space to clean, and with large-scale flooding, might provide additional benefits to our customers.
Items that seem intact and undamaged can remain so if we place these in out of the way locations. We do not list these as they do not impact your insurance claims. We list the rest of the items based on how well we can restore that article. Some require only minimal effort, and others require specialists. We partner with various experts in other fields, ranging from electronics to household appliances to fragile textiles. Our network of experts makes recovering happen more smoothly and with fewer losses.
Some items become so damaged during a flood that the restoration becomes very unlikely. We have our customers review these before we dispose of them, and when a customer requests, we attempt to restore specific items because of their value to the owner; we do our best at such efforts. Documenting our work on the Content Claims Inventory Service (CCIS) on a room-by-room basis assists you with your insurance claim.

Fire Damage Accidents Happen in El Centro, but Don't Let Smoke Ruin the Party Accidents happen when people are distracted but our SERVPRO team can clean up and restore the mess.

SERVPRO Exists to Restore Fire Damage From Your El Centro Home

What starts as an innocent party may turn into significant damage in just a few minutes. Perhaps you are hosting a gathering in your home in El Centro and leave the stove unattended to greet your guests only to come back to a kitchen engulfed in flames. Alternatively, a scented candle is left too close to your window treatments, and they catch on fire. The reality is that accidents happen and as homeowners, we are always vulnerable to being a victim.

Mitigating the losses in your El Centro home due to fire damage is mostly dependent on how quickly you reach out to a professional team to restore your home. Thankfully, our SERVPRO rapid response team is available 24/7 and can begin the assessment of damage shortly after receiving your call. Our formal training lets us gauge both the nature of the fire and the type of residue it left behind, allowing us to tailor our approach specifically to your needs.

Contrary to what most people think, smoke also contains small particles that when combined with humidity in the air can become acidic. Our SERVPRO technicians know exactly how to work within this environment while wearing protective personal equipment and looking at how the resulting soot settles onto the surfaces of your home. The damage to your furniture and belongings is proportionate to the amount of time this acidic residue remains on them.

Aside from the apparent damage smoke causes, there is also the lingering smell that can permeate your whole home. When our SERVPRO crew works to eliminate that foul smell we take into account just how porous each surface is and how the soot got there. In our process, we attempt to follow the same route the smoke took to saturate your belongings with odor-fighting solutions. This specific odor-fighting approach makes our services efficient and effective, returning your home to you as soon as possible.

An accidental fire in your home should not turn into a tragedy. SERVPRO of El Centro/Salton City holds the solutions to your specific problems, and we are quick to implement it. Call us at (760) 337-5858 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
