Why Are Training, Certification, and Experience Crucial When Hiring a Fire Restoration Company?

Assessing, planning, and implementing all the steps in a significant fire restoration project is complex. Our SERVPRO has the unique position of confidently providing industry-leading services that meet or exceed the standards developed and imposed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and applicable licensing and oversight agencies. We have state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience in the restoration industry required to manage a multi-tiered commercial fire damage project.

Owners and managers in our firm possess advanced post-secondary degrees in scientific fields and multi-specialty IICRC certifications. Our owner is a California General Contractor, permitting us to extend wrap-around reconstruction to our commercial customers, saving you time, expense, and worry as you work with one contractor to "Like it never even happened."

How Is Fire-Related Water Damage Mitigated and Remediated in Tight Quarters Like Mid or High-Rise Housing?

One of the challenges of responding to a condominium or apartment fire is the varying degrees of difficulty when gaining access to damaged spaces. These barriers can be particularly taxing during the water removal task that is often the first phase of the project. In-unit sprinkler systems activated by the heat can initially deposit water in affected units, followed by a robust response from the fire department. Swift-water evacuation is vital:

  • To halt the corrosive action of the fluids
  • To remove suspended and dissolved hazards 
  • To streamline the way for fire residue cleanup

We use submersible pumps where water is more in-depth than two inches. If we can access the water with our truck-mounted extractors, we centralize the water removal to one or a few points. If needed, our technicians also can carry portable extractors into confined spaces and areas far from easy exterior access. Our ability to scale up our workforce for this step ensures that our reaction time does not suffer.

Do All Tenants or Owners Need to Move Out During Fire Damage in a Multi-Residency Building?

We work with you and the owners or resident council to minimize evacuations, which are expensive and disruptive, using research-based strategies that prioritize safety while encouraging restoration efficiency. The answer to whether individuals can remain in damaged or nearby units is different depending on the specific circumstances. It is often subject to the oversight of local authorities. Some ways our crews can prevent drift of fire residues include:

  • The shutdown of any shared HVAC systems, followed by duct cleaning and fresh filters
  • The containment of the fire-affected spaces with 1.6 polyethylene wrapping and negative air pressure machines seal the area from unaffected units or rooms
  • The integration of a series of "clean" and "dirty" rooms or spaces to prevent our workers from tracking fire residue through unaffected spaces
  • The use of the clean and contaminated designated spaces to move fire debris safely out of the building 
  • The employment of negative air pressure equipment as air scrubbers, forcing contaminated atmospheres inside contained spaces through HEPA filters before exhausting outside.

Your provider requires a general estimation of the expected costs and timeline as well, which is also part of our damage assessment.

Can SERVPRO Provide Properties With Rapid and Expert Cleanup and Odor Removal In Los Angeles?

5/11/2020 (Permalink)

A home with an active fire burning inside the home and out the upstairs windows. Yikes!! Los Angeles House Needs Help. Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration

SERVPRO Will Provide Effective Air Purifying Equipment after Los Angeles House Fires.

Los Angeles homes can be dangerous to enter once a structural fire has occurred. While it might be tempting to assess the damage for yourself, this inspection should get left to professionals with the experience and safety training to assess risk and determine what your home needs to get fully restored. One of the risks with entering a property shortly after a fire has gotten extinguished is air quality. From contaminants to debris and soot, entering without the proper personal protective equipment could be harmful to your health. Even SERVPRO technicians never entered a burned structure until the Fire Marshal gives the okay.

Recovering from fire damage in your Los Angeles home is something that happens over several stages, and often begins with debris removal and environmental purification strategies. Improving the air quality is one of the ways to achieve this, as this makes it easier for our experienced SERVPRO professionals to work efficiently without the need for excessive protective equipment like SCBAs and full-face respirators.

Air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators provide an effective way to remove contaminants and other particles from the environment over a prolonged period. We can set up these machines, and allow them to pull air through them, and through their HEPA filters inside, to catch and trap particulates, debris, dust, smoke residue, and soot. These machines continue to run throughout the earliest stages of restoration and mitigation by our professionals, which helps to reduce further debris and dust while damaged structural elements get removed.

Deodorization is another component of air quality, but this stage often happens towards the end of the restoration process. Our SERVPRO technicians go between all of the affected areas with our thermal foggers to break apart foul odor molecules and neutralize them on contact. This procedure can eliminate these noxious odors permanently, making it “Like it never even happened.” This part of the fire damage restoration service can be very challenging.

Whenever your home suffers fire damage effects, you can count on the expertise and rapid response of our SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo technicians. Give us a call today at (310) 333-0654.

How Do I Establish a Drying Goal during Water Damage Restoration in My Marina Del Rey Home?

5/6/2020 (Permalink)

An inferred camera pointed at the floor Devices like this can assist our technicians in coming up with a drying plan for your home.

Our technicians use several devices to determine the best plan of action in removing water damage.

Creating a drying goal is critical when attending to water damage incidents. With the goal in mind, a restoration service provider is in a position to monitor whether the drying procedures that are in place are working towards attaining the goal. This goal usually shows the conditions the contents and areas should indicate, once they return to their pre loss state. We are going to show you how we establish such goals when attending to water events in Los Angeles.

Measurements of humidity are key during water damage restoration in Marina Del Rey. Our SERVPRO technicians understand that an effective drying process requires the relative humidity (RH) to be lower than 40%. By being lower than 40%, it means the air can readily take in more moisture from the wet materials. Never make a mistake of assuming that a lower RH implies that the structure is dry. When we are taking the RH measurements using a hygrometer, we usually compare the reading of the affected area with those of the unaffected area. We know our processes are working when it keeps on decreasing over a duration of time.

Our SERVPRO technicians also establish moisture content goals during the restoration process. Here, we create the dry standard and the normal EMC (equilibrium moisture content.) By measuring the moisture content of items in the unaffected area, we can come up with the dry standard. We use moisture meters when measuring the items' moisture content, and from those readings, we can find out whether drying is taking place.

In case the moisture content of the materials is not decreasing, and the humidity is still high, our SERVPRO technicians examine the drying system and come up with a more efficient one. For instance, we might increase the number of dehumidifiers at the site or create smaller drying chambers. A drying chamber refers to the size of the area that we are drying. We usually demarcate drying chambers by using 6-mil polyethylene partitions.

SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo is a trusted industry leader in water, fire, storm and mold damage remediation. Call us at (310) 333-0654 if you need a service provider that is Faster to Any Size Disaster.

A Large full fire blazing. Seeing any part of your Los Angeles property engulfed in flames can be nerve-racking.

Move-Outs Eases The Stress Of Mitigating Fire Damage In Los Angeles

Seeing any part of your Los Angeles property engulfed in flames can be nerve-racking. Although seeing the flames go out can bring your anxiety down, it is rarely the end of your problems. Experts advise property owners against handling fire debris on their own or even operating appliances that were in the affected environment until they are certified safe to use. Smoke and ash can find their way inside appliances, resulting in damage if used before cleaning. You can ensure curiosity does not get the best of you by moving the contents in the affected area to a different location.

Move outs present many advantages to the process of restoring fire damage in Los Angeles, but they must be done correctly to actualize these benefits. One reason our SERVPRO technicians might opt to move items is to ensure we clean and deodorize them properly, which may not be possible if done at your property. Depending on the materials the fire burns, the resultant smoke residue might require chemical action or extended cleaning time to dissipate. Using these cleaning agents within your property might cause other inconveniences or unintended damages.

When the fire affects parts of the structure, you have to involve a contractor. If our SERVPRO team moves the contents from the affected area, the remodeling crew can work faster saving a few days or hours. This simple action can save you or the insurer some money.

As stated earlier, move-outs have to be done correctly to be beneficial. Our SERVPRO team understands this, so we only opt for this when necessary. Taking proper inventory of the items before moving them helps make the process easier. That is why we use custom inventory templates that contain everyday items in a typical pack-out, easing the inventory process. We classify items based on the level of damage if the reason for moving them is restoration. We can also classify them by the location they are if the reason is to protect them from further damage. This way when we return them it can be "Like it never even happened."

Indoor Air Quality Concerns After a Fire in Your Los Angeles Home

Among the greatest concerns for your Los Angeles home after a fire is the lingering smoke and soot damage that can affect the breathable air inside. While these situations are often managed easily by our technicians on site, those that choose to assess the damage to their property on their own or continue to expose themselves to these risks throughout the early stages of restoration do not fully appreciate the severity of contamination, toxins, smoke, or other hazards that could exist in the air.

Even with a localized incident in your residence, the fire damage/odor concerns in Los Angeles that remain pose a lingering threat to the occupants of the home and to the technicians assigned to restore these damages. Our SERVPRO professionals have specialized equipment designed to improve indoor air quality and the safety of the breathable air within the home following a fire in the early stages of restoration. Once we arrive at your home, we can start with our mitigation tactics to preserve structural elements and the contents of your house.

Once these initial steps have gotten taken, we can utilize our specialized equipment to begin immediately improving the quality of the air by pulling particulates, debris, soot, and smoke particles out of the environment with air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators. These tools reduce the number of potential contaminants, germs, and harmful substances circulating in the environment to help keep our technicians and the occupants of the house safe through the preliminary stages of restoration.

Additionally, our SERVPRO professionals can utilize tools like our thermal foggers to significantly reduce or eliminate harsh odors in the affected areas of your home.

Call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo at (310) 333-0654. We are available 24/7 to advise and help you restore your damaged property.

A Set of commercial washing machines. SERVPRO Helps Keep Los Angeles Area Laundromats Open During Water Damaging Events

SERVPRO Works Fast and Hard to Removal Water and Keep Your Business Open.

Water removal services are an essential solution for the aftermath of a flood of any kind. Being the owner of a laundromat, the last thing you want is one of your washing machines to have a broken hose. Without the fixed connection, gallons of water can spew everywhere. Cleaning the mess yourself can be expensive and time-costly but, fortunately, there is qualified help near you.

SERVPRO technicians can come to your Los Angeles establishment to remove the water when it suits you. However, it is better for your business if we come as soon as possible. If the water sits inside of your establishment for an extended period, it can become the perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold causes structural damage over time and health effects, a situation that is not ideal for you. Plus, you want to keep your paying customers happy with a safe, slip-free environment.

When SERVPRO gets to your property, an estimator can explain the damage, the likely solution, and answer any question. They can explain how water damage impacts tile flooring and listen to any concerns you have about your equipment. They are an essential communicator between our techs and you. For more minor flooding from appliance failure, we can quickly begin the extraction.

Our IICRC-certified techs can use advanced technology that is designed to pull the water from your property as swiftly as possible. We use powerful industrial pumps and wet/dry vacuums to clear the area. If there is much water, we may use a  truck-mounted pump system.

After we extract the water, SERVPRO can begin cleaning your property and then dry out any very moist areas of the structure. If there is a concern about mold, our SERVPRO techs can spray an antifungal agent to combat the chances of growth. The goal we strive for is to keep your laundromat functioning and preserving your equipment from water damage.

When an incident like a broken hose or water main break happens, do not pause. Give SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo a call at (310) 333-0654. We can get to your business as quickly as possible to begin the extraction.
