Commercial A SERVPRO Crew Is a Beautiful Thing for Removing Water from Your Salon in Azusa SERVPRO Keeps Azusa Salons Beautiful with Rapid Water Removal

What You Can Do When a Pipe Bursts in Your Azusa Salon and Causes Water Damage

It is unfortunate that old plumbing can lead to complications that can unexpectedly cause water damage inside of your business. When a pipe bursts inside of your salon, water can run the quickest path from your ceiling to yoåçur floor. From there, the longer that it sits, the water can begin to become absorbed by the tile flooring of your establishment. If it is left too long, the base of the floor underneath can swell and cause cracks in the tile above.
 
It is never a good feeling to open the doors of your Azusa salon and find water damage pooled around the pedicure chairs first thing in the morning. In fact, you may initially feel panic and freeze, unsure of what to do. However, it is vital for you to get on the phone and call for professional help as soon as you can. The sooner that help can arrive, the less likely it is that severe damage can set in.
 
Here at SERVPRO, we understand how valuable your time is as fellow business owners. Foot traffic is everything and closing your store means a loss of money. However, if you call us first thing upon finding the water damage, SERVPRO can rush to your property and begin remediation immediately. By quickly addressing the water damage on your property, it is possible that your store can reopen faster.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians can arrive at your salon with advanced equipment meant for remediating water damage. Our techs can use powerful wet/dry vacuums to clean up any pooled water lingering on the floor. From there, we can use moisture meters to determine where any drying needs to occur inside your shop.
 
SERVPRO can use equipment such as air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers in conjunction to reduce the moisture that is lingering inside of the flooring. Once we're sure that the damage has been completely remediated, we can leave your salon and allow you to reopen your doors, confident that space has been returned to its preloss state.

Azusa's Commercial Water Damage Technicians Discuss Problems With Sprinkler Systems

9/10/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Azusa's Commercial Water Damage Technicians Discuss Problems With Sprinkler Systems If the sprinkler system ever floods out your restaurant call SERVPRO.

Commercial Water Damage

In every restaurant in Azusa, there are several appliances that use water and many waterpipes running throughout the building. The relatively high number of areas that use water in a restaurant increase the possibility of commercial water damage occurring. Some eateries have multiple dishwashers for their bars and their kitchens. Many cafeterias also have several sinks that have both temperatures of the water and drain lines running to and from them. Both sinks and appliances can malfunction and spray water into your building causing excessive commercial water damage.

Anytime a water leak happens at your place of business; our SERVPRO technicians know that keeping your restaurant open is essential to prevent loss of revenue as much as possible. Our team will change the way they complete a commercial water damage project in Azusa to save you and your insurance company money from loss of business. Many times we restore affected contents and materials while your business is not open so that we do not distract your hungry customers. In other situations, we complete the mitigation work a small section at a time so that parts of your dining room can still stay open.

One common problem that can flood out restaurants is if the sprinkler system for the building goes off. Sprinkler systems are designed to repress fires if they start and usually consist of water pipes running throughout your building. Excessive heat or small kitchen fires can set off the sprinklers which will flood out your structure. Sometimes sprinklers can also leak or malfunction creating excessive moisture issues. If the problem occurs while your business is closed, it is possible that much water will pour into your building before the disaster gets noticed.

If enough water gets into your dining room, building materials and contents like your chairs and tables can get ruined. If wooden items stay wet for too long, mold growth can develop. Whenever water floods out your cafe, our SERVPRO team begins work immediately to reduce primary damage and prevent secondary issues.

If the sprinkler system ever floods out your restaurant, call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 any day of the week.

Azusa Businesses Can Bounce Back After Water Damage With The Help of SERVPRO

Running a business in any industry and of any size can be a lot of responsibility on you. Even if the number of employees in your business equals zero, running things on a daily basis requires things to remain stable, including your business's physical environment, as well.

If your Azusa-based business ever experiences commercial water damage, you might find that things can get out of hand rather quickly. SERVPRO technicians stay ready round-the-clock, every day of the year so businesses in our community can receive the services they need in emergencies like broken water lines, basins that overflowed, and leaks in roofing structures. Our crew members are experienced in large and small settings involving water damage, and we can help you at any stage of its discovery.

In our Green Fleet, we have large pumps mounted on trucks to remove water quickly, which can prevent damaged areas from worsening. We also carry the other machines needed to dry out your business, keeping moisture from spreading through materials to undamaged areas. Our air scrubbers remove microscopic debris in the air, including microbes that can start growing when they settle on surfaces.

At SERVPRO, we carry the tools to clean areas affected by water damage, as well. Getting things dry only solves part of the problem. We know that cleaning up items affected by water that might leave a film of dirt behind does not keep our customers satisfied. Specialized cleaning cloths help pick up deposits left behind after drying out your business. These deposits get picked up from the water passing through other materials in your business. Carpeting, dry materials, and other items can put things in the water that spread out and end up everywhere. We get rid of all that for you.

Protecting your business from the future effects of water damage is crucial in keeping your business running normally. We inspect your business's interior for possible problems that we can help prevent from becoming long-term problems. However, the initial phases of restoring your business's facility can go much more smoothly and efficiently when you have an Emergency READY Profile in place. This free Profile gives us the information needed to assist you more effectively and rules out the possibility that you might forget important details in the face of any type of disaster.

When Over-watering causes Commercial Water Damage In A Irwindale Nursery

5/29/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial When Over-watering causes Commercial Water Damage In A Irwindale Nursery After a nursery in Irwindale sustains commercial water damage in this manner, water can continue to spread via evaporation and condensation.

Commercial Water Damage

Sprinklers used to prevent fires from spreading can malfunction and cause problems, and watering systems in Irwindale garden shops and nurseries can experience similar issues. Incorrectly setting the timer can cause planters and trays to overflow after becoming saturated.

After a nursery in Irwindale sustains commercial water damage in this manner, water can continue to spread via evaporation and condensation. Water-permeable bags of fertilizer and other inventory items can become damaged, upsetting customers and a string of returns for refunds. Water-damaged materials can allow other problems to develop, including mildew growth. SERVPRO's professional Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) helps protect area businesses by removing the misplaced water from the building.

Removing water can include the moisture that now saturates porous materials and increased humidity. Because nurseries typically maintain higher humidity than the outside air, we might not need to perform dehumidification except in areas such as offices or non-nursery areas of your business. Situations such as this make it essential for communication lines to stay open between SERVPRO technicians and our customers during the mitigation work.

The removal of water from your building can prevent this, but the introduction of water from over-zealous sprinklers can kill your more fragile living merchandise. At your direction, our employees can help rescue saturated plants by working with your employees in placing seedling containers in a designated area to allow for more rapid draining away for the water.

Plants and seedlings that already perished can still provide some cost-cutting savings when we remove and set aside potting soil and planters. These can still drain away extra water and then, after recycling and minor cleaning, re-enter your inventory to save your business money, helping to keep it active and healthy.

SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina helps businesses recover faster after any disaster including water damage from both interior and exterior sources. When businesses have a READY Plan in place, our response becomes even more specific to the problem, starting at the moment we arrive to begin mitigation. Contact us at (626) 387-4111 to make your READY Plan for such emergencies or our assistance with a disastrous situation currently affecting your business.

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Projects in Irwindale When possible, SERVPRO will remediate damage during your business's closed hours in order to not interfere with normal operations.

SERVPRO Works Quickly to Get Your Business Back to Operating Normally after Water Damage

Sometimes appliances or pipes break inside your Irwindale bakery that causes water to leak everywhere. It is never a good thing when you go to open your bakery in the morning, and it is flooded. Many times a water damage problem can cost your business money if your bakery cannot function.

When mitigating issues at a business, we try to complete work without costing you even more money. SERVPRO's commercial damage technicians in Irwindale have experience in mitigating problems in a way that negatively affects your business as little as possible. Often we change how we complete our processes so that our work does not get in the way of your company's daily operations.

As soon as our IICRC certified technicians enter your bakery, keeping your business operating is the number one goal. We first fix the source of the problem so that water stops entering the building. Next, we take measures to ensure the safety of our workers, your workers, and customers.

Any hazards that we can repair such as falling down drywall or trip hazards we fix. Any other hazards such as electrical shorts we call in professionals to fix so that the work area is safe to begin restoration procedures. We block off and post "danger" signs around the areas that remain unsafe for workers without protective equipment.

Any areas that are wet pose slip hazards and we make sure we post "caution wet floor" signs. We then begin extracting water sometimes a small section at a time so that your customers can still order from your bakery. We block off one part, extract all of the water we can from that area, then move our ropes over to another area so that people can still walk through your business.

Sometimes if the area is safe for you to keep your business operating but it is challenging to stay operating while we work, then we complete our duties after business hours. During extraction, we secure the area and post wet floor signs then complete the work when the bakery is closed. During the drying process, we sometimes set up equipment when your business is closed then remove the drying equipment right before you open the next day.

Often we can dry out a structure during the closed hours of your business. For professional help mitigating problems while keeping your business operating, call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 24/7.

Our restoration team also keeps in mind any discomfort the water damage or its reparation causes to your customers.

When the team moves the equipment, they make sure the process does not cause problems to the functioning of your business. Our IICRC certified technicians then can come in with their extraction equipment. While we extract water from the area, we make sure our extraction process does not hinder your business in any way.

Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Azusa

1/3/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Azusa Although concrete floors are resistant to damage, it is important to call SERVPRO to remove the water and dry out your space to avoid cracked floors.

SERVPRO Thoroughly Removes Water and Dries Out Large Commercial Spaces

Most Azusa businesses face a plumbing failure at one time or another. Most are minor problems, like a leaky pipe under a customer bathroom sink. In larger facilities, like a big box store or a warehouse, a plumbing failure can spill an incredible amount of water across a showroom floor. Overnight, the entire facility can be under an inch or more of water.

In a business like this, the concentration on alleviating Azusa commercial water damage is water removal and floor drying. Since the floor is primarily concrete, SERVPRO technicians know that this reduces the types of water damage, but it does not eliminate them all. What we want to prevent is cracking and other damage to the surface and below.

We start by opening every entrance or exit possible. SERVPRO technicians then engage commercial grade pumps to bring down the water level. With several of these pumps working together, we can clear even a large area in a single day.

Once they have it down just covering the surface of the floor, we switch to using extraction wands and squeegees. The extraction wands are a more powerful version of a water-vac found in most garages. For areas in the store which have just a trace of water left, we use long-handled squeegees to push the water out the nearest exit. It takes us another day or two using these devices and hand tools to complete drying the floor. 

A second concern is reducing the humidity inside the building. At each of the major entrances and exits, our IICRC-certified technicians place large exhaust fans to draw the damp air inside the building outside. If there are corners inside the building that we cannot get to, under storage racks for example; we set up air movers to force warm air underneath to dry them.

Concrete is resistant to damage, but water can find its way into the smallest crack or fissure. If you do not have a professional service quickly remove it, the results can be thousands of dollars in repair costs. If your business is underwater, then you need our help. Call SERVPRO at Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 today.

Assisted Living Home in Pathway of Flood and Mud in Azusa

11/7/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Assisted Living Home in Pathway of Flood and Mud in Azusa Allow SERVPRO to worry about flood damage cleanup, while you focus on the residents of your assisted living facility.

Rely on SERVPRO to Remediate Flood Damage in Your Commercial Space

The cycle of wildfires and recent heavy precipitation interrelate in many ways in Azusa. Still recovering from the effects of raging fires a little more than a year ago, the flow of water and mudslides are not moderated by forested areas as was true before the blazes. Heavy rains and snowmelt can mean damage requiring our skilled workers and industrial sized equipment to remedy.

Located to the south of the San Gabriel Mountains, properties in Azusa are at risk of flood damage if the trend of heavy rains continues. Assisted living facilities face an enhanced threat as the residents served are vulnerable, physically unable to protect themselves or get to safe areas quickly. When flooding is imminent, your focus must be on the residents under your care. Leave the cleanup to us.

Floodwaters carry a range of contaminants into your property, making professional cleanup, containment, and disposal a necessity. SERVPRO technicians are trained and experienced in contaminated water management, ensuring that at the end of the project your residence’s staff and guests are at no risk of the hazardous waste-laden water that moved through the building.

Because of the erosion on the slopes, our crews must plan for a mixture of mud and water as well as an endless variety of debris picked up as the slurry moved down and into inhabited areas. We have accesses to resources equal to these challenges, including specialized equipment to collect and remove the watery mess.

Smooth, tiled floors clean more easily than carpeted areas, but we also use techniques taught in IICRC courses to clean and dry carpets in common areas and resident rooms. After the cleanup is complete, SERVPRO crews move on to treat all affected areas and materials with appropriate antimicrobial solutions to inhibit transmission of pathogens.

Drying is the final step, effectuated by high-power air movers and dehumidifiers. After being cleared for operation, we also re-engage the HVAC system to filter the air and help with dehumidification. Throughout this part of the process, SERVPRO workers measure and monitor moisture levels, using advanced scanners to locate any hidden pockets of water. Thorough drying is the best insurance to prevent mold growth and damage.

SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina is ready to assist if rainfall totals push water and debris down the mountains and onto your property. We staff our phone at (626) 387-4111 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Plan to Re-Open Your Covina Coffee Shop Quickly After Flood Damage

9/25/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Plan to Re-Open Your Covina Coffee Shop Quickly After Flood Damage SERVPRO can help prepare your business for a flood to help minimize potential damage.

Stayed Prepared for Flood Damage

Covina coffee shop owners are right to be concerned about the impact of flooding, especially when they have to close their business down for cleanup and restoration. No business owner wants to face flood damage, but it is better to prepare so you can minimize harm and loss of earnings.

The key to minimizing profit loss after flood damage to your Covina coffee shop is to plan and put processes in place to protect your physical property and support your staff in the event of an emergency. Do not assume that your business is safe - flood damage is a risk for many businesses, and it is better to plan.

The first step is to secure the building itself. Check for structural integrity and get any leaks, missing roof tiles, old windows, or flood-prone basements fixed straight away. Install storm shutters if you can. Prepare your building as well as you can so it has a better chance of withstanding a serious storm or flood.

Think about what to do with your supplies in the event of a flood. Coffee beans and ground blends, teabags, and ingredients such as flour do not fare well in water. Make sure your premises has plenty of raised shelving and storage, so there is less chance of food spoilage.

Think about the paperwork side of your business, too. Keep electronic backups of all invoices, payroll details, receipts and spreadsheets, and always keep a backup off the premises too. Plan so that no vital information is lost in the event of a flood.

Make sure your employees know what to do and how to get in touch with you and each other in an emergency. Prepare for the fact that phone lines and the internet might be down, and arrange alternative means of getting in touch. Consider setting up a “contact tree” so each employee reaches out to the next person until everyone is in touch. Ask your employees to get in touch during a disaster even if they are not at work that day.

Our IICRC-certified technicians are on hand to pump and extract water from your coffee shop, and we equip our team with powerful fans, air movers, dehumidifiers and moisture probes to get your premises dry and ready to re-open.

SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Plan is a free app you can use to plan for natural disasters and other events such as fire, flood, water damage, and mold.

For help with flood cleanup in Azusa, Irwindale and surrounding areas, call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 for assistance today.

Commercial Printing Contractor Suffers Water Damage in Irwindale Your print shop needs quick action to recover from water damage. Contact SERVPRO for a plan of action to get you back to printing.

SERVPRO Technicians Focus on the Precise Tasks Ahead of Them to Get Your Business Quickly Back to Operational Again

All businesses have connections within their communities. Some commercial enterprises perform tasks that affect other companies and residents more profoundly when a disaster affects their physical plant. SERVPRO helps companies large and small when water flows uncontrolled, committed to the well-being of every member, residential or commercial, of our neighborhoods.
 
Even in this age of virtual connection, people and businesses truly rely on local papers and publications to share information. When a burst pipe stops the presses, professional commercial water removal is essential to clear your Irwindale printing shop fast. News waits for no one, and our efforts do all that is necessary to get the printing back online.
 
Modern printing operations rely upon electronics as well as vast stores of paper and ink. When the SERVPRO team arrives, safety is first. The various pieces of electrical equipment must not threaten the lives of our workers or the employees of your business. We make certain the power is off, and then use our truck mounted submersible pumps and water extractors to remove the water. The inks and products used to keep the presses in working order may mix with the flood waters. Knowing this, we take care to consult with local authorities to dispose of the water properly.
 
The computerized work areas need assessment by electronic water damage specialists. We work with you and your insurer to communicate with these professionalists as we move from water removal to drying out the area. Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers assist in the reduction of the remaining moisture. Only after we receive the okay do we reengage the electricity and wait while you put your equipment through its paces.
 
A real challenge during this job is dealing with the massive quantities of newsprint within the building. Any paper out of the reach of the flooding depends upon our ability to reduce ambient humidity in the work area to remain usable. The soaked paper is probably unsalvageable but needs removal and appropriate disposal to avoid secondary water damage. Mold growth is a distinct possibility with wet rolls of paper.
 
Be sure that all the news fit to print is soon in the hands of our local community after SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina removes the water flooding your premises. Call (626) 387-4111 day or night for a prompt and professional response.

Maintaining Your Walk-In to Prevent Water Damage in Your Azusa Convenience Store

Commercial Maintaining Your Walk-In to Prevent Water Damage in Your Azusa Convenience Store SERVPRO Keeps Your Water Damaged Convenience Store in Azusa Open for Business

SERVPRO Responds Quickly to Restore Damages to Inventory and Business at Your Store

When you own a convenience store, your walk-in freezer or cooler is an important investment. You need to keep it properly maintained so that it gives you many years of efficient usage. A broken freezer can lead to pools of water on the floor, creating water damage to your store, your food inventory, and costly repairs. If this does happen, you want to contact a professional water damage remediation company. SERVPRO is always available in cases like this.
 
Keeping Your Walk-In Operating Efficiently helps prevent water damage to your Azusa convenience store.
When not in use, ensure the door is closed. Do not prop or block the door open for a long time. Keep it closed at all times, other than entering or leaving the walk-in. The evaporator and condensing coil need to be cleaned a minimum of twice per year. The fan blades should also be cleaned to lower the chance of drag.
 
Make sure fan motors are running at the best speed, and that the coil is free and clear with nothing stacked around it to prevent restricted airflow. Nothing should be piled on top of the walk-in, as this can damage the panels in the ceiling. A technician should check all your electrical connections occasionally to make sure they are tight. Wires which are loose can create high amperage, causing your appliance to use extra energy and possibly cause arcing.
 
The suction line insulation between the evaporator coil and condensing unit should be checked for decay, and replace when needed. Lubricate door hinges once per year to make sure they are closing properly. The door sweep should also be checked for tears to make sure it is properly sealing. Excess condensation and moisture can build up when the door is not shutting properly. Water leakage can cause employees and customers to slip and fall. Rely on SERVPRO to dry out the affected areas, reduce safety hazards, and protect your dry goods from moisture absorption.
 
Moisture problems are one of the biggest threat to your store. While most walk-ins do not regularly leak, improper maintenance can cause them to begin leaking. Water damage can quickly take its toll on flooring and other nearby fixtures. It is imperative that the problem is fixed right away, and this is where our IICRC trained technicians at SERVPRO can help you. Besides cleaning up the water and fixing any damage created by the leak, we can help repair the problem which caused the damage in the first place.
 
Don’t hesitate to contact SERVPRO of Azusa/ Covina when you have a water damage emergency from a failing walk-in, plumbing failure or a flood. The longer you wait, the more damage can occur, including the growth of mold. We are just a phone call away at (626) 387-4111, and we arrive at your business quickly to take care of the problem for you.

Mitigating Mold Damage in a Covina Chiropractic Office

1/31/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Mitigating Mold Damage in a Covina Chiropractic Office Get a handle of the moisture level in your Chiropractic Office with SERVPRO. Call today for an evaluation.

SERVPRO Has Experience with Humidity and Mold Issues in Office Spaces


If you run a humidifier or diffuse fragrance in your chiropractic office, the added moisture in the air can feed spores, resulting in colonies of fungi on walls or ceilings. SERVPRO can remediate the current mold damage and educate you on how to monitor humidity to avoid growth in the future.
 
You may unwittingly be contributing to commercial mold damage in your Covina chiropractic treatment and waiting rooms. The steam from a warm or cool humidifier or fragrance diffuser can condense on a wall or other solid surface, creating the perfect conditions for many varieties of mold to grow. Because mold spores are always present in the air, a traditional water disaster does not need to occur for mold colonies to flourish. A microbial breakout can be a very concerning and confusing time. If the mold is cleaned away, but the conditions that encouraged its proliferation do not change, it will come back repeatedly. We can help you adjust the conditions in your chiropractic practice to create a soothing and spa like ambiance but also reduce the possibility of more mold damage to almost nothing. A proper moisture balance is the key to preventing more mold from invading, once the initial growth is contained and removed.
 
Mold damage remediation is a job for professionals, particularly when your business is serving the healthcare needs of paying clients. SERVPRO follows the EPA protocol developed for schools and commercial buildings to provide mold abatement, requiring only trained experts to take the steps to deal with the mold. Our technicians protect you, your patients, and themselves during the process. Mold damage is contained, removed, and disposed of following local hazardous waste rules. A thorough cleaning, top to bottom to contain spores, will then be performed. HEPA filtered vacuums and disinfection solutions may be used.
 
We then turn our attention to the water source feeding the fungi. Ambient humidity in your office will be measured with precision instruments. Bringing it down to 60 percent or lower will be a goal to prevent more mold growth. Angling diffusers and humidifiers away from surfaces that will condense the mist will also help eliminate pockets of moisture attractive to mold growth.
 
Mold damage in your chiropractic office can be managed successfully by SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina. Contact us at (626) 387-4111 for a microbial growth consultation.

Commercial What Is Restoration and What Can It Do for Water Damage in Irwindale Businesses? Restrooms and Other Water Damage in Irwindale Calls on SERVPRO for Help

Don't Let Water Damage Impact Your Commercial Enterprise

If you’re dealing with a significant commercial water damage incident, you may be feeling a little pessimistic about how much of your business can be saved. Breakdowns and failures like a burst pipe or a faulty restroom, are quite common, but they can cause all kinds of damage. Fortunately, there is a way to minimize the severity of the situation and rescue as much of the affected area as possible.

Restoring commercial water damage in Irwindale businesses is no easy feat, but it can be achieved with the help of SERVPRO. Our expert team is highly experienced in dealing with flooding of all shapes and sizes. They can be onsite fast, to start water extraction quickly and reverse the destruction caused by standing water.

This quick guide to the restoration process will help you learn all about what the technicians at SERVPRO can do for you.

What Is Water Damage Restoration?
The term ‘restoration’ is a simple one to define, but it involves a broad variety of different methods and techniques. Essentially, it is the job of putting a business back together after a flood or other water related incident. Some classic examples include broken pipes, fire sprinkler systems gone awry, cracked gutters or failed flat roof pooling containment, overloaded appliances, and faulty faucets and boilers.

A team of restoration professionals is called out to the damaged site – in this case, your business – and they use a selection of industrial strength tools to remove the water. The array of water pumps can vary from a handheld portable wet vac to sump pumps to large truck mounted equipment. After water removal, our SERVPRO technicians can start taking steps to salvage as many items as possible.

Why Is a Speedy Restoration Important?
Getting the restoration process started quickly is important for some reasons. The longer that your employees cannot work from the affected area, the more money you’ll lose. It can also be hazardous to your health to leave the water to sit and stagnate and degrade into contaminated Black Water.

Consider that SERVPRO works with over 315 management companies, municipal and federal entities, and many insurance companies to expedite time and save you money.


There is also a great risk to the structural integrity of the building, as moisture creates mold that slowly destroys organic materials like wood, drywall, or even fabrics in a boutique. We understand that nobody wants to have to call a water damage restoration team. If you do, it means that something has gone wrong.

Most commercial water damage is not permanent. With the help of SERVPRO of Azusa/Covina, you can get restoration started as soon as the problem becomes apparent. Our experts are highly trained and can assess the building for dangers so that you don’t have to put yourself at risk. Call us 24/7 at (626) 387-4111.
