What is Commercial Water Damage?

3/15/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial water drying equipment SERVPRO of El Centro has a large inventory of restoration equipment to dry commercial properties when they become flooded.

SERVPRO Restores Water-Damaged Businesses in El Centro and the Imperial Valley

Most water damage restoration companies are familiar and comfortable performing residential work. However, it takes experience and an investment in equipment to effectively produce "commercial" water damage cleanup jobs. Commercial jobs are almost always much larger than water damage projects in a home. Furthermore, the stakes are greater because commerce is interrupted. Commercial jobs demand adherence to tight deadlines and finding ways to keep a damaged building open and the company operating during the cleanup.

SERVPRO’s El Centro water damage restoration team responds quickly to return businesses to a pre-damage state. This 24/7 commitment minimizes downtime for business owners so they can open their doors safely and rapidly once more.

SERVPRO Drys, and Restores  Water-Damaged Facilities

One of the most crucial elements in performing a commercial water damage cleanup is being able to provide restorative reconstruction once the mitigation (drying) is completed. Being able to manage a job seamlessly from the initial emergency arrival through to completion is an advantage. It's cost-effective and a time saver.

SERVPRO provides Large-Scale Biohazard Cleanup in El Centro

1/24/2022 (Permalink)

Crime scene tape SERVPRO provides crime scene cleanup service.

Depend on SERVPRO for Certified Technicians Remediate Commercial Biohazard Contamination in the El Centro Area

A range of different events can cause biohazard contamination at your commercial building. Trauma and crime scenes, long-term dangerous building materials, and events such as sewage spills, or fire damage.

Who Is Responsible for Crime Scene Cleanup?

If a commercial building is the site of a crime, injury, or death, once the first responders leave, the cleanup usually the responsibility of the property owners. This realization can be shocking and worrisome as budgeting for this type of service is not in the typical business plan. Make sure to inform your insurance company as claims for abatement after trauma or crime are often covered. We are familiar with the documentation needed, and always offer to help act as a liaison with your carrier.

What Kinds of Biohazards Can SERVPRO Mitigate and Remediate?

If a traumatic injury or even death is the underlying event, we clean a disinfect the location for the following contaminants:

  • Blood
  • Tissue
  • Other bodily fluids
  • Drug residues

When police or other safety officers responded to a crime in progress and perform a post-crime investigation, the hazardous materials present can also include but are not limited to:

  • Tear gas and pepper spray residues
  • Evidence gathering residues
  • Chemicals from illegal substance manufacture

During construction, water or fire damage remediation, and stand-alone inspections, hazardous materials and microbial growth can halt progress because of the presence of:

  • Asbestos
  • Lead, usually as paint
  • Molds
  • Mildew
  • Chemicals discovered or spilled

Can My Housekeeping Staff or Contracted Cleaning Company Handle the Cleanup?

Regardless of the source of biohazardous waste in your commercial space, local, state, and federal law, regulation, and rules apply during the abatement. The hazardous substances can be injurious to health via skin contact or inhalation. SERVPRO's biohazard technicians earn and are current with all certifications required before we send them to your property. It is unlikely that your day-to-day cleaning staff has the specialized training, equipment, or certification necessary to remediate the scene lawfully.

How Are My Customers and Employees Protected During Biohazard Remediation?

We contain the affected area, sometimes with a series of "clean" to "contaminated" rooms for technician and occupant safety and offloading debris without spreading contaminants. We wrap the workspace with 1.6 mil polyethylene to prevent the dispersal of any airborne hazards during the remediation. Negative pressure air scrubbing technology assists in confining even microscopic particles during the project, forcing them through HEPA filtration for particle capture. Our crew wears personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect their health. We use containment, such as plastic barriers to prevent the spread of contamination

Are Permits and Specific Hazardous Waste Site Disposal Required?

Every locale follows protocols to ensure the safety and health of occupants of contaminated buildings, the general-public, and biohazard remediation crews. Expecting business owners to become hazardous waste remediation and disposal specialists is unrealistic. Our mission when developing a biohazard cleanup plan for your commercial space includes our commitment to obtaining all needed permits and following appropriate procedures from containment through the discarding of the hazardous substances and materials. You can have confidence that a nightmare of bureaucratic requirements does not follow your stress of needing biohazard cleanup. We are experts and walk you step by step through the process.

Speaking of Stress--Will Biohazard Remediation Cause My Workforce to Relive the Trauma?

We prioritize sensitivity training for our biohazard cleanup crews. The aftermath of a tragedy or the fear inspired by potential exposure to injurious substances or chemicals is incredibly distressing and disturbing. Although we certainly refer you to other professionals for questions about the mental or physical health effects of a biohazard scenario, our entire team treats your crisis and the individuals affected with respect and compassion throughout the project.

Are Repair and Rebuilding Services Available?

A long list of structural damage issues can follow the completion of remediation. We hold a California general contractor license and can transition from remediation to helping repair  and build back, including:

  • Wall, ceiling, and floor removal, repair, and replacement
  • Door and window replacement and rehanging 
  • Carpet and pad cleaning, removal, and installation
  • Repairing and resurfacing
  • Furniture repair and cleaning

Crafting a response to a biohazard cleanup emergency is uncharted territory for most business owners. SERVPRO of El Centro and Salton City stands ready to help with certified technicians and the specialized equipment needed. Call (760) 337-5858 day or night to review your options at this difficult time.

For Trauma Scene Cleanup, Reach Out to SERVPRO of El Centro for Prompt and Compassionate Assistance.

No one expects or can predict the need for cleanup of a trauma scene in El Centro. Many trauma scenarios can happen and result in the need for professional help to respond to the cleanup of the situation's aftermath.  Not just any cleaning company can provide you with the level of services you require. It requires a company experienced in trauma scene recovery. 

What Are the Specific Circumstances Considered to be Trauma Scene Cleanup?

  • General crime scenes

Includes the removal of evidence gathering residues such as teargas, pepper spray, chemicals to highlight organic wastes and splatter, and fingerprint powder, among others)

  • Suicide, homicide, and unattended death 

Includes bodily fluids and tissue removal on surfaces and spaces where those substances migrated (cracks, crevices, subfloors, building cavities). It can require the use of agents to illuminate the migration of infectious and otherwise dangerous substances.

  • Infectious disease, viral, and microbial contamination

Includes specialized cleaning treatments using EPA-registered products to thoroughly remove microbial from the indoor environment.

  • Illegal Drug Distribution or Manufacturer 

Includes containing and clean-up of the space and residues with exceptional care because the remnants and residues of drugs can be deadly when inhaled or contaminate a person's skin.

Should I Perform the Cleaning Myself?

Consumer cleaning products are inadequate for safely and thoroughly removing the types of residues found at trauma scenes. A person can unwittingly put themself and their family in harm's way by not knowing the risks and the correct protocols. Because of the many potential dangers, our employees wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to guard against infection, ingestion, absorption (through skin contact), or inhalation of the biohazards encountered. Our professional trauma scene cleanup technicians are trained and have earned certifications in this discipline. This is not a job for the amateur.  

Who Pays for the Cleanup?

Insurance policies often cover the cleanup costs. In other situations, public agencies may take on the cost or recommend funding sources.

Trauma Scene Cleanup Technicians Understand the Emotional Difficulties 

As part of their training, our technicians learn about the emotional toll that crimes and trauma scenes take on you, your loved ones, and your business associates. Expect our crew to treat you and the others with respect, empathy, and compassion during every project.

The specially trained and certified trauma cleanup team at SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City is ready 24/7 to deliver professional services promptly and compassionately. Call us at (760) 337-5858

Soot and smoke damage can destroy your business and interrupt or stop operations until odor removal and restoration are complete. Commercial fire damage can stop revenue and may even lead to the closure of your business operations.

The extent of property damage helps to determine the costs associated with commercial fire damage at your business. Work closely with your insurance company when a fire happens

Asbestos is found in many El Centro Buildings.

12/8/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO managers' vehicle SERVPRO can send a licensed asbestos inspector to your property if you have any concerns about asbestos in your building.

Discovering Asbestos During Renovation of Your El Centro Office

At one time, Asbestos was so prevalent in our commercial buildings because Asbestos was used in certain floorings, plaster, insulation, roofing felt, and other materials. It took decades for California and other states to recognize the potential health effects caused by the heavy use of the Asbestos in construction. It remains a substantial concern for homeowners and business owners even today, especially in public buildings. During renovations and repair work of buildings the possibility of encountering asbestos-laden materials increases significantly and becomes an issue during demolition.

SERVPRO of El Centro can help you with property renovation. We are certified in the containment and removal of asbestos (called abatement) for El Centro structures. We become certified through the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) and our experience and work is tested and accredited by the California Department of Industrial Relations’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA.) Here is a consumer tip: It is important to note that all contractors must produce a current license number and Cal/OSHA registration number to legally advertise or perform asbestos abatement and removal tasks for any property in California.
The reason that asbestos removal is regulated is because airborne fibers may present a potential health risk.  Once asbestos fibers are disturbed the fibers can circulate throughout the interior environment and become a substantial challenge to cleanup and remove. Our SERVPRO of El Centro professionals use sophisticated HEPA air cleaning equipment, containment measures, and personal protective equipment to perform abatement the right-way. The regulations that control asbestos abatement companies also specify how and where to safely discard asbestos-laden debris/material that has been removed from the building. 

Most property owners understand the severity of the situation when addressing asbestos concerns. If you are not sure if you have asbestos in your building call SERVPRO. We can perform a test and help you scope out a plan for its removal. Please, give our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City team of professionals a call today at (760) 337-5858.

fuga de tubería de agua debajo del techo en el interior del edificio de oficinas SERVPRO puede tener su empresa en funcionamiento en poco tiempo. No permita que una fuga de agua interrumpa su negocio.

La Decoloración en el Techo de su Negocio de El Centro Puede Señalar un Problema de Agua Severo

A menudo, los dueños de negocios en El Centro no reconocen las primeras señales de advertencia de una fuga de agua, como una factura de agua más alta. Cuando detectan decoloración en el techo, la fuga se ha convertido en un problema mayor y requiere ayuda professional. En lugar de dejarlo desatendido y esperar, tome medidas para evitar las malas consecuencias.

Puede confiarle los servicios de restauración de agua en El Centro a SERVPRO. Nuestra experiencia en entornos comerciales ayuda a guiar nuestro plan de acción con el objetivo de minimizar las interrupciones a sus operaciones diarias. A medida que nuestro equipo certificado explora su local comercial, estamos atentos a otras áreas afectadas por la filtración, anticipando complicaciones antes de que ocurran. 

¿La decoloración en el techo significa que tengo moho?

Su techo puede estar mostrando signos de daño por agua, pero eso no necesariamente equivale a la presencia de moho. Nuestro equipo SERVPRO puede ayudarlo a tomar esa determinación utilizando herramientas específicas de la industria para detectar la presencia de bacterias. Algunos de los indicadores de la presencia de moho se hacen evidentes cuando uno se hace las siguientes preguntas:

¿La fuga ha estado allí por mucho tiempo?

¿La decoloración tiene un olor a humedad?

¿Las manchas se ven texturizadas?

Nuestro equipo de SERVPRO responde a estas preguntas y las complementa estudiando el estado general del espacio y decide los pasos a seguir. Para eliminar el moho es preciso tomar acción.  Contrario a la opinión popular, el moho crece cuando hay exceso de humedad y no se elimina a menos que sea removido. Todos los negocios están en riesgo de tener moho, no solo cuando hay falta de limpieza o se vive en algún lugar en particular. Por eso, en SERVPRO limpiamos el área a fondo y aplicamos soluciones antimicóticas aprobadas por la EPA para evitar una recurrencia. Cada paso se realiza con las mejores prácticas de la industria en mente y completamente documentado para sus registros.

La restauración del agua es esencial para prevenir el moho, pero es aún más crítica si ya hay moho presente. Independientemente de lo avanzado de su situación, SERVPRO de El Centro / Salton City es su mejor recurso en este momento.  Llámenos al (760) 337-5858 y permítanos trabajar con usted para dejar su negocio como si nada hubiera pasado.

What Does Discoloration in the Ceiling Tiles in my El Centro Business Mean?

6/5/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged and stained office ceiling tiles Once you notice the water damage on your ceiling, quick action is necessary. Contact SERVPRO for effective remediation services.

Discoloration in the Ceiling of Your El Centro Business can Point to a Bigger Water Problem

Often business owners in El Centro fail to recognize early warning signs of a water leak, such as a slightly higher utility bill. When they detect discoloration in a ceiling tile, the leak has become a bigger problem and requires professional help. Rather than using a wait-and-see approach, take action to prevent undesirable consequences.

Water restoration services in El Centro can be entrusted to SERVPRO. Our experience in commercial settings helps guide our action plan by minimizing the disruptions to your daily operations. As our certified team explores your establishment, we are on the lookout for other areas affected by the leak, anticipating complications before they occur.

 Does discoloration in the ceiling mean I have mold?

Your ceiling may be showing signs of water damage, but that does not necessarily equate to mold. Our SERVPRO team can help you make that determination by using industry-specific tools to detect the presence of bacteria and eliminate it accordingly. Some of the indicators for mold become evident when you ask yourself the following questions:

  • Has the leak been there for a long time?
  • Does the discoloration have a musty smell?
  • Do the spots look textured?

Our SERVPRO team examines these questions along with the general state of the space and decides on the next steps. To remove mold, you need to take action.  Contrary to popular belief, it does not go away on its own, nor does it grow only if your place is dirty.  Excess humidity becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, regardless of your geographic location or cleanliness.  At SERVPRO we clean the area thoroughly and apply EPA-approved antifungal solutions to prevent a recurrence. Each step is done with industry best practices in mind and thoroughly documented for your records.

Water restoration is essential to prevent mold, but it is even more critical if it is already present. In either case, SERVPRO of El Centro/Salton City is your partner in this journey. Call us at (760) 337-5858 and let us work with you to leave your business "Like it never even happened."

El Centro Business Biohazard Cleanup Is One of Our SERVPRO Specialties

Your El Centro hotel and event center welcomes guests visiting from across the country. It is also the venue for celebrations and meetings for residents and businesses. When a sewer backs up into the bathrooms serving meetings or ballrooms, you need fast and efficient biohazard mitigation from trained and certified professionals. This biohazard is a situation beyond the capacity of your regular cleaning and housekeeping staff, but we are available to assist 24/7.

How Dangerous Is Biohazardous Waste?

When a sewer line backs up, you face many challenges in your El Centro hotel. Biohazard cleanup must commence as soon as possible because of the human waste, which can contain a wide range of blood, urine, and fecal-borne pathogens. The water and debris it contains need containment, removal, and then disposal following local health codes and hazardous waste regulations.

SERVPRO managers and technicians are highly proficient in the biohazard cleanup industry’s best practices adhering to EPA and OSHA guidelines. Our employees hold the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in multiple specialties that support our efficient management of a contaminated site. When we arrive at your business, a seasoned crew chief assesses the situation and creates a project plan to rid the space of the hazardous waste safely and rapidly.

We set up a containment area, often sealing the affected space off with heavy plastic sheeting and the use of a negative pressure air scrubbing system. Any airborne pathogens disturbed during the cleanup are trapped in HEPA filters as the atmosphere inside the containment is vented to the outside.

Our technicians don personal protective equipment (PPE) for their health and to ensure that waste materials are not tracked through other areas in your hotel. SERVPRO’s green service vehicles stock the equipment needed to suction up the mess and secure it in containers for appropriate disposal.

Our technicians employ EPA-registered cleaners and disinfectants to scrub infected surfaces and treat them with antimicrobial agents to inhibit any mold growth or further damage. SERVPRO deodorization technicians use a variety of methods and equipment to eliminate any noxious smells remaining after the cleanup.
SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City commits to meeting or exceeding your expectations when resolving a biohazard crisis. Call (760) 337-5858 with confidence. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

When Water Damages Warehouses in El Centro

2/18/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO drying equipment being used in commercial property No matter the scope of your water loss, SERVPRO can restore your property.

Precautions for Water Removal in El Centro Warehouses 

As the owner of a bustling El Centro warehouse, you handle the goods for your company in a steady stream of incoming and outgoing orders. As highly tuned as this procedure has become over the years of operation, disasters can still occur that limit the production of your facility and can potentially damage these stored wares. In addition to the threat standing water presents to stocked boxes and pallets, several other concerns exist regarding extraction. 

Water removal for your El Centro warehouse is a critical mitigation element when our SERVPRO team first arrives at your facility. However, extraction and other relative emergency services can create unexpected hazards. Anticipating these setbacks to the restoration process can help our team to return your building to the preloss condition efficiently. 

Structural Weaknesses 

The presence of excessive water in the offices and non-open-air areas of the warehouse can compromise the structural integrity of exposed materials. Absorption into ceiling and wall materials can lead to these surfaces becoming too heavy to and collapsing. Flooring other than the finished concrete throughout most of the facility can also be a point of concern for overexposure and weakening. 

Slips and Fall Hazards  

Though the extraction process is one of the primary focuses of the SERVPRO team responding to the water loss, finished concrete flooring and other smooth surfaces can make slipping and falling easy. Whether these are employees still attempting to work around the worsening water loss or our responding technicians, careful extraction and drying can limit the potential slip hazards. 


When material removal is necessary for effective extraction and evaporative drying techniques, hidden asbestos-containing products can get uncovered and disturbed with controlled demolition techniques. Given the severity of these concerns and any exposure to fibers circulating in the environment, our SERVPRO abatement team can remove these threats appropriately. 

Removing standing water from areas of your warehouse should happen as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City team can arrive with premier water removal tools, but also a working knowledge of the best solutions to address potential problems as they arise. Give us a call anytime at (760) 337-5858.

A man pouring creamer into a cup next to a coffee machine. Lets get your El Centro business back to business after sewage.

Don’t let your El Centro business suffer because of sewage.

Many biohazardous situations occur without any involvement of your own, and sewage backup into your El Centro café can be one of them. With a dedicated line that runs to the primary sewer system from your business, and blockage in the main line between your service line and the next can have the full measure of the main pipe’s contents backing up through your drains and primary sewer lines. This occurrence can quickly flood the men’s bathroom of your small business.  

Considering how active commercial districts and the entire system is, the need for sewage backup cleanup in El Centro businesses can occur in a short period. Once a bio-threat like sewage exists, our SERVPRO professionals must react quickly to the situation to get the area contained, and the potential spread of bacteria stopped. We can help you to get through the end of the standard operating hours for the day by quarantining this area and allowing our technicians to begin treating the affected region with extraction tools, drying equipment, and potent disinfectants. 

We have an experienced team of bio-recovery specialists with continuous training and education to address these sensitive concerns confidently.

Prolonged exposure can only make the situation worse, so secure our experienced biohazard team right away.

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.

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."

Precautions for Sewage Backup in Your El Centro Public School

Biohazards like sewage can be dangerous for those exposed, and it is important to take the necessary precautions for your El Centro public school staff, the students, and anyone else who might get exposed. As tempting as it might be to instruct the custodial staff to begin cleanup efforts, there are many contaminants, bacteria, and even viral threats that exist in sewage that can put these individuals at risk without the appropriate training and expertise in handling conditions like these safely.

When your El Centro school needs sewage backup cleanup, you can count on our professionals. We have extensive biohazard training to handle these situations safely, protecting both our technicians restoring the facility as well as working to protect your facility as much as possible from the spreading damages. Fast response to hazardous situations like this can ensure that areas currently unexposed to the damage can remain that way.

Our SERVPRO team begins first by assessing the damage to the facility and working to begin necessary extraction efforts. We have many tools and machines that can quickly remove the contaminated black water from the exposed area of your school. In many situations, once the excess water has gotten removed, we can immediately begin the necessary tear out and demolition efforts. There is too great a risk to leave contaminated elements and structural components in place once exposed to raw sewage, and so we must remove these materials to get to support materials, studs, and beams.

Once tear out completes, our SERVPRO technicians can work on cleaning and disinfecting the structural supports that remain. Our contracting division can begin work on replacing the removed materials immediately following this cleanup and disinfection, providing a fast recovery to a traumatic situation.

As alarming as sewage backup can be for your public school, keeping people away from the danger and letting our professionals restore the damage is a wise choice. Many municipal agencies rely on us for fast, dependable service.

Our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City rapid response team can make this situation “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (760) 337-5858.

El Centro Factories Rely on SERVPRO for Removal and Cleanup After a Sewage Blockage

Cleaning Up after Sewage Backups in El Centro

Producing goods in your factory in El Centro require clean facilities and functioning equipment. This extends to employee washrooms and basements, too. Both of these areas contain drains that lead to connections with the municipal sewer system.

When clogs or other blockages buildup in these larger sewer systems in El Centro because of construction or other issues, sewage can back up inside your facility. Contamination like this requires extraction of wastewater and subsequent cleanup. Our IICRC-certified crews are ready for mitigation of such messes and the restorative cleaning tasks involved in making things safe again, “Like it never even happened.”

In addition to the extraction of Category 3 water backing up into your factory, we also use odor control methods to eliminate the odors that linger in the area. Such smells can invade materials in the same location. Uniforms, linens, and other textile-related items easily retain odor-causing particles after absorbing them. Our methods help prevent this from happening, saving you the inconvenience of re-laundering otherwise clean items. Running a hydroxyl generator while we work makes the area much more pleasant for our employees and starts the odor control process.

Our technicians quickly move at-risk items on the floor into safer locations, inventorying those items that the sewage destroyed. It is nearly impossible to satisfactorily clean items contaminated with sewage that invaded your facility. These lists that detail your inventory can help with insurance loss claims.

Once the area is free of sewage, we can begin cleaning up using antimicrobial agents that kill germs and make hard, non-porous surfaces sanitary again. Because of the possibility of cross-contamination with clean areas of your facility, we use personal protective equipment (PPE) that includes coverings for our footwear. Shedding these before leaving the area prevents the spread of any trace amounts of sewage.

SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City has the necessary equipment to remove sewage and other Category 3 messes from your factory in Calexico, Heber, or Salton City. Cleaning the area and deodorizing are both crucial steps in restoring your property fully. Call our 24-hour emergency line, (760) 337-5858, 365 days a year.

SERVPRO Makes Your Sewage Backed-Up El Centro Spa Sparkle Like a Diamond

Hazards of Sewage Backup in Your El Centro Spa

Finding the right help when an emergency strikes your El Centro property does not have to be a challenge, especially when the situation demands immediate action. Sewage backup can cause dramatic effects for your local spa, and provide potential health risks for those that become exposed to the damaged areas before they can get cleaned up and disinfected. Our team can help you to overcome this serious situation quickly with the tools and equipment designed to work fast, and get your doors back open to your customers quickly.

While there are often many potential hazards that could impact your El Centro spa throughout its lifetime, when you need sewage backup cleanup, it is as unpredicted as it is potentially hazardous to all exposed. Our SERVPRO professionals offer a wide range of biohazard services to our community, so we have considerable experience both with the customers that we have served in the past and our continual training to provide effective solutions for current clients.

One of the biggest threats about sewage in your facility is the bacterial risk that exists. Our professionals can arrive quickly to contain this area and prevent its effects from reaching other areas of your building while we get to work on removing the immediate contamination from the area and designing a specific approach to restoring your spa completely.

Extraction is among the first steps because it presents the greatest immediate risk to both our SERVPRO technicians on site and any other people that could become exposed. We also determine what materials have become saturated or affected by the backup, as these elements must get removed entirely and later replaced once we have disinfected and thoroughly cleaned the entire area.

While this might only be a small portion of the work that is necessary to bring your spa back from a biohazardous situation like sewage backup, our professionals are more than up to the task. Our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City rapid response team is available 24/7 for whatever emergency threatens your business by calling (760) 337-5858.

For Real Commercial Cleanup in El Centrol Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Disinfecting Your Retail Building

Biohazard Cleanup for Sewage Backup at an El Centro Gas Station

Your El Centro gas station requires constant maintenance and upkeep with the higher volume of customers coming in to purchase convenience items and use the facilities. The trouble with not being able to monitor these restrooms within the building as often as you might like is the possibility of someone attempting to flush something that a toilet and sewage disposal system cannot handle. Contending with the backup of sewage in your building is nothing that an employee or owner should do on their own, our trained professionals can help to overcome this hazardous situation quickly and safely.

When you first discover sewage backup in one of the restrooms of your El Centro gas station, the best practice to follow is to get customers out of the building and to seek the help of biohazard professionals as promptly as possible. With the likelihood of the situation getting worse without the appropriate steps getting taken, you do not want to risk the possibility of the sewage spreading throughout the store. Our SERVPRO professionals can not only work to contain and quarantine the affected area of your building but efficiently work to clean up and disinfect all of the exposed areas.

With sewage, much of the exposed materials and structural elements can quickly become irreparably damaged. Without the means to completely disinfect certain materials used in flooring or drywall, the most cost-effective and efficient solution is to remove these damaged elements and replace them with new and unaffected materials to complete the restoration.

These conditions are particularly hazardous due to the contaminants, bacteria, and other threats found in sewage. Our SERVPRO professionals get uniquely trained in full-body personal protective equipment to keep them safe while we clean up the mess, disinfect the area, deodorize the environment, and work efficiently through the remaining steps that allow you to reopen your station to your customers.

Biohazards can not only threaten the safety of the customers and employees of your gas station but also pose a significant risk to the structural integrity of the affected areas as well. Give our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City rapid response team a call to help today at (760) 337-5858.

Commercial Water Cleanup In Imperial

9/4/2018 (Permalink)

If you need emergency water cleanup or any other kind of disaster restoration for your property, you can always count on our crew.

Commercial Water Cleanup

One of the most stressful things for your Imperial business is getting posed with an emergency situation that requires immediate attention before structural damages or product damage could occur. Your retail location is not designed to withstand water incidents, even in the lesser traveled areas of the building. With records and stock throughout the showroom and back areas of the store, getting water cleaned up quickly and correctly has to happen right away.

Among the most troubling elements of water damage to your Imperial retail location is the substantial damage that it can ultimately cause to construction materials and fixtures throughout the facility. Elements like tables and desks used for cash registers or clothing displays can become saturated and warp or degrade even after an inadequate cleaning job by employees or custodial staff.

More to the point, cleanup jobs that our SERVPRO technicians take on often hinder the business’s ability to remain open to their customers. Whether it is a safety concern or something of an aesthetic eyesore, a business owner calls us to come out because the problem needs to get taken care of immediately. A rapid response from our emergency team can help to limit some of these effects mentioned above and help to make the entire restoration more efficient.

Another thing that you should consider when it comes to choosing professional restoration from our SERVPRO team for water cleanup is the effect a lingering situation has on not only your profits but also the employees that depend on their jobs. The longer that your facility is closed off to customers, the longer that individual members of your staff are without gainful employment.

Sometimes one of the hardest choices that a business owner has to make is determining when a situation is out of their control and best left to the professionals to restore or recover. If you need emergency water cleanup or any other kind of disaster restoration for your property, you can always count on our crew at SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City technicians to get the job done right. We are available anytime by calling (760) 337-5858.

How To Secure a Building After a Fire

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

Give SERVPRO a call after a commercial fire!

The fire damage of a El Centro, CA business can leave the building vulnerable. Damage can affect commercial buildings in different ways, but often the flames cause the following issues:

• Unstable structure
• Broken or missing roof
• Building left defenseless to looters

As you and your commercial fire restoration team tackle the cleanup, you may want to find ways to secure your building from self-destruction, looters and mother nature.

Put Up Boards

Boarding up windows, doors and holes in the wall can help stop looting. If these openings are left unblocked, looters can easily enter your store, warehouse or office building. With the boards in place, however, there is an extra obstacle that may be enough to keep the vandals out.

Secure the Boundary

The fire cleanup process is messy. Your property may not be safe for nonprofessionals for a while. Putting up a fence can help keep intruders out, but it does something else too. It protects you from liability problems.

Add Stabilizers

Adding extra support beams and pillars during the reconstruction phase can help secure your building's structure. Without these stabilizers, the fire damage could cause your property to collapse on itself. In some cases, you and the workers cleaning up the mess may not be able to enter the building until it has been secured and deemed stable.

Cover the Roof

You also have to secure your property from weather. Rain, wind and hail can easily enter a fire damaged structure when pieces of the roof or walls are missing. You can protect your building from extra damage by putting up tarps and other coverings to keep the elements from making it inside the space.

When your business is affected by a fire, it can feel like operations have come to a halt. Tackling a fire cleanup to address fire damage can help you get your day-to-day activities back and running, but you need to make sure your building is not further damaged by looters, weather or faulty structure.

How To Mitigate Water Damage Until Help Arrives

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

When torrential rains have left your building flooded and your city streets closed, you need to mitigate damage until help can arrive. Water damage can quickly get out of control and go from bad to worse in a matter of hours. If allowed to sit long enough, water damage can result in mold growth and other serious issues beyond a water pipe repair. For this reason, you need to take steps to prevent further damage by doing the following:

• Assess the situation and determine what is safe and what is not.
• Stay away from heavy materials and keep waterlogged carpet and furniture where it is.
• If possible, begin to dry out the affected area. Do this with fans, dehumidifiers and open windows.
• If the source of the damage is a broken pipe and not the rain, close off the main valve and perform a water pipe repair.

Act Fast

The longer the water is allowed to sit, the worse the damage will become. If there are no safety issues, remove as many of your belongings as possible from the flooded area. Only do this if the water is Category 1, meaning it comes from a burst pipe or a broken supply line. Call your insurance company to report the incident right away.

Ventilation is Key

Ventilation is the key to preventing mold growth. If it’s nice outside, open the windows and close off the affected area from the rest of the home. If it’s not, place fans and a dehumidifier in the room.

Expose Saturation

Look for pockets of saturation in the carpet, drywall and other materials. Open them up so they can be dried and cleaned.


Last but not least, clean the all the items you were able to remove from the afflicted area. Leave the bigger items, such as furniture, carpet, drywall and insulation, to the professionals.

Hopefully, by making the necessary water pipe repair and following these measures, you can mitigate as much water damage as possible post flooding. However, it would still be smart to have a El Centro, CA  water restoration team come in and inspect to make sure all damage is accounted for. Visit for more information on commercial water damage. 

Inspections and Precautions Can Help Preserve Your Commercial Roof

3/13/2018 (Permalink)

This commercial property suffered from water damage.

A roof leak can lead to a lot of water damage problems and may require professional repair and restoration services. It’s important to keep your commercial roof in excellent shape to prevent leaks, holes, and cracks caused by debris and weather conditions. By inspecting your roof and looking out for potential problems, you can lower the risk of dealing with water damage in the future.

Inspect the Roof Often

To maintain your roof, inspect its integrity frequently. If a severe storm occurs in El Centro, CA an inspection can help identify any kind of water or wind damage. While examining your rooftop, look for bubbles in the roof cover. Bubbles indicate there is trapped moisture within the cover and may lead to a roof leak.

Roofing inspections can help you stop a problem before it gets out of hand. If there is a lot of standing water on top of your roof, take care of it quickly. Prolonged standing water can deteriorate the roof cover and weaken or rust the roof deck. Cracks and tears can allow water to seep beneath the roof cover and into your building.

Watch Out for Signs

Along with frequent inspections, keep an eye out for any of the following appearing inside your building:

• Water stains
Unexplained mold
• Strange odors

Although these problems don’t always stem from the roof, they can be your first sign of trouble. If you notice such issues, it can be best to check for any holes, cracks, or other signs that could lead to a roof leak just in case.

Being proactive in your roof upkeep can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Don’t forget to maintain your roof by cleaning gutters, trimming trees, and keeping rooftop vents sealed. You can prevent a lot of damage by being aware of potential problems and by doing all that you can to preserve and maintain your commercial roof.

How To Get Rid of Smoke Odor After a Fire

2/12/2018 (Permalink)

If you’ve recently had a commercial fire in El Centro, CA you may be wondering what steps you should take. You’re likely feeling overwhelmed, not knowing what to do or who to call first (after the fire department, that is). Then there’s that awful smoke odor that can linger even after all the burned and destroyed items have been removed. Thankfully, there are highly trained restoration professionals out there who are sufficiently equipped to handle all your smoke cleaning needs. These companies will likely have access to state-of-the-art equipment and techniques that will not only clean up the often overwhelming mess the fire left behind, but also restore your building to its pre-fire condition. Here are a few things you should expect from a smoke damage restoration professional.

Thorough Inspection for Identification of Odor Sources

It may be easy to look at the affected area and simply assume the smell is coming from everywhere. While there is an element of truth to that, these companies have access to equipment that will help them easily trace the strongest odor sources so that they will be able to focus their efforts most heavily on those affected areas. Sometimes, the odor can come from unlikely places on the interior or exterior of the building.

Water and Fire Treatments First

In order to ensure the odor problem is properly treated, any water or soot must be removed from the premises first as part of the smoke cleaning process. Since these are strong sources of odor in themselves, this process will eliminate a large portion of the necessary odor remediation.

Cleanup, Sanitization, and Odor Remediation

At this point in the restoration process, affected, salvageable items will be properly cleaned, sanitized and restored to their pre-fire condition. The smoke odor will often still linger in the affected areas. Using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment, the restoration professionals will now aggressively attack any remaining odors, since the preliminary work has been completed. Once the odor is removed, the final stage of the smoke cleaning process will be any necessary structural repairs. Visit for more information on commercial fire damage.

Initial Steps To Take

In the first moments of a fire, you will want to get everyone out of the house and contact 911. From there, the following steps are important:
