SERVPRO Helps Los Angeles Homeowners Restore Delicate Materials After Flood Damage

Everyone living in the Los Angeles area has at least one carpet or a rather delicate furniture item. Maybe you have a fancy rug or a chair with delicate upholstery, or perhaps your favorite drapes are made of a material that stains easily.

After flood damage in Los Angeles, the initial cleanup focuses on healing the significant problems such as waterlogged rooms or soaked drywall. However, there are other, smaller but no fewer essential concerns, too. For example, if contaminated floodwater has left your prized Persian rug damaged or left a stain on the sofa you inherited from your aunt, you will want to get that resolved as soon as possible. Luckily, SERVPRO of Marina Del Ray / Westchester / El Segundo is here to help.

How does spot and stain removal differ from regular cleaning?

Spot and stain removal are a more specialized techniques than general cleaning. Spot and stain removal always occur before cleaning the rest of the surface because spot cleaning can cause some discoloration or changes to the affected area. Cleaning the entire item after spot cleansing reduces any changed areas' appearance and helps the spot or stain disappear.

Which parts of my home might need spot and stain removal?

The most common areas that need help with water damage stain removal are:

  • Upholstery on chairs and sofas
  • Carpets and rugs
  • Antique furniture such as a chaise or a day bed
  • Drapes and especially drapes made of delicate material like silk or velvet

Are there differences between spots and stains?

You might not know that there is a difference between a spot and a stain. Let us look and see what makes them different from one another.

Adding something to the fiber such as wax, sugar, food spills, or gum, produces a spot. A stain means the grain has been discolored, such as with spilled wine or Kool-Aid or coffee. When color leaches out of the fibers, materials become tarnished. For example, a bleach spill can discolor fibers.

SERVPRO trains our technicians to recognize the different kinds of spot and stain and formulate an appropriate treatment plan for flood damaged Los Angeles properties.

Are there different kinds of soil?

Several different kinds of soil can dirty fabrics. Types of soil include:

  • Water-soluble soils such as sugars and starches which are removable with a water spotting product
  • Oil-soluble soils such as greases and tars which can are removable with an oil-based spotting product
  • Protein-based soils such as egg or milk break down with an enzyme-based product
  • Color-adding soils such as toner or tannins require dry brushing followed using an appropriate spotting product
  • Discoloring soils with products like bleach are ineffective with existing damage
  • Insoluble soils such as sand or skin cells are best removed by vacuuming and sometimes by suspension and extraction

What is the SERVPRO spot and stain removal process?

SERVPRO trains our technicians to follow an effective spot and stain removal process. The first step is to extract excess soil if possible. Most stains can be dealt with more effectively if they are dealt with immediately. It is best to do this first step when fibers are dry – your SERVPRO team will point out the best course of action, depending on the extent of the flood damage and whether the material is wet.

The next step is to assess the soil type. As we have discussed, there are six main soil types, and ascertaining, which kind we are dealing with is essential. Before cleaning commences, we must determine the type of fiber. Different materials respond differently to cleaning methods, so it is essential to know what kind of fabric we are cleaning. We use burn tests, chemical tests, and specific gravity tests to figure out your drapes or upholstery fiber composition.

After our initial assessment, we will liaise with you to ensure you understand which cleaning method is best for your water damaged possessions and what the results are likely to be. Once we have the groundwork established, we choose from the full range of solvents and spot cleaning products at our disposal and beginning the spot cleaning process.

When spot and stain cleaning is complete, our teams rinse and then thoroughly dry the material. Our aim is always to leave your furnishings as clean and fresh as possible - "Like it never even happened." Restoring delicate or antique materials after a flood is a tricky process. Do not tackle spot and stain removal yourself. Call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo at (310) 333-0654 for assistance.

Can Appliance Maintenance Prevent the Need for Fire Damage Restoration?

Overloaded power strip; cords catching fire and beginning to burn Overloaded outlets are a common source of fire damage. Inspect your outlets often.

Los Angeles Residents Can Reduce the Need for Fire Damage Restoration with Regular Appliance Maintenance

People living in Los Angeles are often busy. The rushed pace of life means that some household tasks might get pushed to the bottom of the to-do list. It is easy to keep up with everyday cleaning or perform visible maintenance tasks and forget less apparent jobs.

No one in Los Angeles wants to deal with fire damage restoration. The aftermath of a fire is often smelly, costly, and distressing.

Why is appliance maintenance essential?

Electrical appliances are a fire hazard. However, most devices are perfectly safe if they are well-maintained.

Checking your appliances can help reduce the risk of fire damage to your home. It does not take an extended length of time, and it is worth the small amount of time spent when you consider the cost and inconvenience of a home fire.

Which tasks should I carry out?

Here are some tasks SERVPRO recommends you carry out regularly:

  • Inspect all electrical cords for signs of fraying or damage
  • Ensure all appliances are working correctly – if one is sparking or malfunctioning you must either dispose of it safely or fix it immediately
  • Keep ovens and hobs clean and in good working order.
  • Stay up to date with professional heating and boiler checks.

Make these tasks part of your regular house cleaning schedule, so you do not forget them. Preventing a fire now is much better than dealing with the aftermath of one.

How can SERVPRO help if there is a disaster?

Sometimes even if you are careful, fire breaks out. In the event of a fire, our teams arrive on the scene quickly. Our aim is always to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Fire damage restoration can be messy and even dangerous due to nasty chemicals, or structural weaknesses. We equip our team members to handle any size of fire and to do so safely and efficiently.

When is Drywall Unsalvageable After Water Losses?

7/14/2020 (Permalink)

Water damaged ceiling: part of ceiling removed; exposed plumbing When this home suffered water damage, SERVPRO was there. We restored this home to its preloss condition.

Drywall is Easily Damaged in Your Los Angeles Residence After a Water Loss

Repairing and reconstructing your Los Angeles home after a water loss can be an overwhelming feat for those unprepared for how widespread and severe these conditions can become. It is often essential to fixate on the pressing concerns like water removal and drying before considering what repairs might be necessary, but this is not always feasible when structural damage threatens occupants of the house with sagging materials or potential collapse. 

Drywall is often one of the most sensitive materials needed for water damage repair within Los Angeles residences after a loss incident. Because sheetrock is so porous, it can quickly absorb volumes of water from its base and wick up the surface to damage most of the installed material in an affected area. This wall surface gets evaluated during the property's initial inspection to look for a physical sign of deterioration, such as bloating, sagging, or crumbling. If these conditions exist, it is often in the best interest of the responding technicians to undertake controlled demolition approaches rather than drying them.

What Other Materials Are at Risk of Irreparable Damage? 

Drywall is, unfortunately, not the only material that can fall victim to migrating water and overexposure. Porous materials exist in many areas of the house, which can quickly absorb water damage and allow for structural deterioration. Some of the most common of these affected surfaces and elements include:

  • Hardwood Flooring
  • Ceiling Materials
  • Contents
  • Carpeting
  • Wood Paneling

With a team of in-house contractors licensed through California for residential and commercial construction, we have the professionals to both restore your damaged home after a water loss and repair the areas that need it. Give our SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo team a call today at (310) 333-0654.

What Should Be the Biggest Concern After Water Damage at Our Marina Del Rey Hotel?

6/26/2020 (Permalink)

Receptionist giving keys to hotel guest Water losses are common in hotels. Call SERVPRO and leave the remediation to us!

SERVPRO Can Help Establish Issues that Threaten the Structure or Your Business 

Water damage incidents in hotels can lead to a cocktail of unexpected problems, including canceled bookings, relocations of guests to other rooms within the facility, or other hotels in the area, which translates to lost revenue. Water exposure is also likely to damage various parts of the structure. With all the problems piling up, it is easy to lose track of crucial things. Involving a team from SERVPRO when there is an incident at your Marina Del Rey hotel can help address all critical issues.

What aspects of water damage require urgent attention?

Water damage incidents in Marina Del Rey unfold differently, so what needs urgently addressing varies in each event. However, any aspect of the damage that might ruin the reputation of the hotel deserves prioritization. In most instances, the origin of the leak determines what is at risk. For example, a malfunctioning fire-suppression system can drench your guests' luggage, ruining their items.

Apart from damaging items, spilled water can also create hazards within the structure, especially the risk of slip-and-fall mishaps due to slick floor surfaces. Guests may overlook a few damaged possessions, but injuries can lead to lawsuits. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you manage the situation by taking various steps, including:

  • Providing special storage for wet paper materials and electronics
  • Setting up warning signs on wet floors
  • Arranging items during restoration to avoid clutter

When exposed to water, documents or books deteriorate quickly as the ink smudges and papers matt. Although wetting happens fast, it is possible to save the items from complete ruin by storing them in a frozen state for at least 24 hours. Later, a process like sublimation can help dry them without smudging the ink. Electronics, on the other hand, need storage that ensures they do not cool to the dew point to guarantee internal components do not rust. Helping your guests save their valuables can go a long way in safeguarding the reputation of your hotel.

Should we worry about damage to the structure?

Delaying moisture migration in Marina del Rey after the water spills pose various risks to the building. The moisture can find a way into wall cavities and multiple assemblies, including stairs and closets, where it can continue causing damages over time. Failure to address the spilled water adequately can lead to a variety of problems, including:

  • Mold breakout
  • Unexplained odors
  • Physical deterioration of materials

Although the issues may not have catastrophic effects, they can affect your business negatively. For instance, bookings can diminish if guests experience bad odors or notice mold anywhere in your establishment. Deterioration of materials in closets and stairs can prompt expensive repairs before the due time.

How can we prevent severe water damage to materials?

Although there is little you can do to the water once it spills, it is possible to prevent or minimize the damages it causes by taking actions such as:

  • Removing all standing water
  • Removing sodden materials
  • Drying the entire facility

Our SERVPRO technicians use different types of pumps, including submersible, portable or truck-mounted ones to remove standing water fast. Submersible pumps help when the water depth exceeds 2 inches. Portable extractors help when movement between the floors of the hotel is necessary.

Removing materials such as drywall and insulation saturated with water helps stop moisture migration through wicking. Our technicians make flood cuts a few inches above the water line for convenient removal of the wet materials and installation of the replacements.

How challenging is it, drying the entire hotel structure?

The sheer size of the hotel can raise moisture management's challenge, especially if the establishment has several floors. Drying works through evaporation, whereby, dry air is circulated continuously around the wet areas. Several units of air movers and dehumidifiers may be necessary to achieve the desired results.

Our SERVPRO crews have access to sophisticated equipment that can help ease the process. For instance, a trailered desiccant dehumidifier placed outside the building can help manage the drying process more effectively. We have a wide array of accessories such as reinforced duct lines and lay-flat ducts to help manage the intake and exhaust of air from the building.

Our technicians monitor the regularly to ensure all materials dry to their standard moisture content level. We also monitor cavities such as wall spaces to ensure they do not act as moisture reservoirs. Once the structure dries to the desired levels, you do not have to worry about problems developing due to the incident.

A water spill incident can ruin your business more than you expect. Call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo at (310) 333-0654 to help with the restoration process. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Flooding Caused Me to Be Temporarily Removed from My Home. What's Next?

Rain and lightning on a blue background Storms can cause local flooding. When water invades your home, call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Emergency Flood Damage Technicians Are Available to Displaced Los Angeles Residents

Storms in Los Angeles typically cause flooding through heavy rainfall, which can raise water levels and overload your home's drainage system. High-speed winds can also damage the roof and structure of your home allowing rain to pour in. It is not uncommon for residents to evacuate their properties during violent storms, but this can create massive amounts of anxiety for a homeowner who has no idea of its condition or possessions. SERVPRO emergency response teams work all over the country, restoring the enormous damage that storms cause. We can look after your home on your behalf and get it ready for your home.

What do flood emergency teams do?

Homes that are unsafe due to storms can suffer significant amounts of flood damage in Los Angeles. SERVPRO technicians can protect your home in the aftermath of a flood by performing vital security services and emergency mitigation, such as removing water contamination, cleaning, drying, and sealing the property. Once the mitigation is complete, we can control the humidity of your home to prevent microbial infestation and deodorize it to return it to a clean-living space. Restoration begins once the property is correctly dry, and we can repaint, refinish, or restore your structure and contents.

What are the security services available during a storm?

Reconstruction Needs After Flooding in Los Angeles Homes

Flooding can cause much stress for homeowners and destruction to Los Angeles properties. As much as our professionals can offer real-time mitigation to slow the movement of water damage effects in a house, little can stop the water flow when structural breaches are to blame. To reduce water penetration into your residence from roof damage or missing veneer material, you need contractors to offer temporary construction solutions.

Flood damage in Los Angeles homes can spread to become out of control without the appropriate preventative measures. In most cases, water extraction and drying efforts for gray or clean water loss incidents can be sufficient to protect exposed structural elements and most construction materials. These damages can persist without addressing the damage to your house’s exterior allowing the water penetration. Our SERVPRO professionals have a full crew of licensed general contractors capable of handling structural compromise on both homes and businesses throughout the region.

Our team offers full support for recovery after a loss incident, especially one as destructive as flooding. We minimize our presence in your property through our fast tactics to overcome most obstacles that we face upon arrival. Contractors can offer emergency construction procedures, including temporary fencing to protect your vulnerable property from predators or animals. We can also set our contractors on the task of boarding up broken windows and tarping over openings nature causes to the roof.

We have ready trailers stocked with our cutting-edge extractors, specialized equipment like light wands and disinfectants, and qualified personnel all accredited in various facets of the industry through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.)

Storm damage can be a challenging situation to contend with on its own, but when these structural breaches are allowing flooding to occur, it is vital to address them as soon as possible. You can count on our SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo team to make these losses “Like it never even happened.” Call (310) 333-0654 today.

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.
