Be Prepared for Water Removal Challenges in Los Angeles with an Emergency Ready Plan

Adding stress to an already frustrating situation is your well-founded fear that a water loss in your Los Angeles business can shut your doors for good. Statistics reveal that nearly 50 percent of companies that do no disaster planning find it difficult to impossible to recover from the disruption after a significant plumbing leak or appliance malfunction. Take advantage of our experience in the water emergency response industry to make preparations to protect your business.

When faced with a water removal crisis, savvy Los Angeles business owners turn immediately to the blueprint for fast recovery developed in advance with our help. Our Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP) allows us to collaborate with our customers ahead of the problem. Since we become well-acquainted with your business layout and method of operation ahead of time, our crews hit the ground running, turning a water disaster into “Like it never even happened” fast.

The first step of creating an ERP is a visit by one of our experienced project managers to your commercial property. SERVPRO reviews the layout of your physical plant, identifying crucial details like the location of utility shut-offs, plumbing diagrams, and positioning of water-using appliances and equipment. We learn how you conduct your business and are on the lookout for adaptations that might minimize exposure to water damage to critical equipment and your inventories and storage areas.

Expect a list of practical suggestions from SERVPRO that you can follow to limit the water damage if your property experiences a water crisis. Rethinking storage of documents or raising equipment above the floor can make a plumbing break an inconvenience rather than a business-ending catastrophe.

You personalize the Profile sections of the ERP by using our mobile app. Questions prompt you to fill in the details that help us respond appropriately and with deliberate speed. SERVPRO can gain valuable information from the vendors and contractors who installed your equipment or designed your systems. You can include their contact information. To ensure that we have an active contact for your business at all times, the Profile can designate a list of employees or other individuals who can act on your behalf if you are out of town or unavailable.

Work with SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo ahead of any commercial property water removal emergency for the best outcome. Call (310) 333-0654 now to schedule our assessment to begin the ERP creation process.

When a False Alarm Triggers Water Sprinklers in Your Los Angeles Office

8/27/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Suppression Sprinkler When sprinklers accidentally are discharged, call SERVPRO to get your business back up and running with the least amount of down time.

Commercial Water Removal Los Angeles – False Alarm Triggers Water Sprinklers

The client is still not sure what triggered the sprinklers in their office; however, after water was raining down on the office for thirty minutes, the sprinklers were finally shut off.  None of the computers were working, and paperwork on the desks was soaked. There was a variety of manuals and personal items belonging to employees that were also wet.

The office manager called SERVPRO for commercial water removal services at our Los Angeles office. The manager stressed that the office must be back up and running within 24 hours, or his company would lose a great deal of business to their competitors. We understand these situations and how important it is to help commercial clients with water removal issues like this. We stressed that we could not help him with the computer and electronic recovery other than dry the outside of each item and remove them to a dry, secure location.

We wiped and dried all the computer cases. We focused on removing all books and documents that were protected by cabinets or somehow missed being drenched by the water. The remaining documents and manuals were laid out to dry on tables. The client was unwilling for any of these documents to leave the building due to privacy issues. Air-drying documents in this manner took longer than other methods; however, the customer's privacy needs are considered an essential service by SERVPRO.

All of the furniture was placed on blocks to avoid leaving rust marks on the carpeting. High capacity water removal machines vacuumed the water. Air movers were brought in and placed at strategic locations to blow air across the floor and out various exits. Dry air was drawn into the area while the moist air was exhausted out of the building. SERVPRO technicians regularly repositioned the air movers to ensure that all areas of the room were adequately dried.

It took the client longer than he anticipated to recover all the computing systems. However, he was delighted with the recovery and restoration services provided by our team.

Call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo at (310) 333-0654 for 24/7 serve. We serve Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, LAX, and surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Los Angeles Experts Talk About how Commercial Water Damage can Cause Dry Rot

8/5/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO is equipped for commercial and residential water damage. Call us today!

Addressing Dry Rot after a Commercial Water Damage Experience in Your Los Angeles Business

There is no better moment for a commercial water damage event to strike. Your goal is to minimize damage and the related costs, as well as to keep your business running.  That is why all business owners in Los Angeles need to be aware of the advanced technology, equipment, and where to get an immediate response as they work to get their business back up and running within the shortest time possible.

If you are running a furniture business in Los Angeles and it experiences a water damage event, there is no need to panic. Our SERVPRO technicians understand that you need to deal with effects such as dry rot. Dry rot usually develops when wood rots after coming into contact with water and is a form of decay. It is a common situation experienced by those who deal with wood which is cured and used for construction purposes. When the wood comes into contact with additional moisture, there is a possibility of molds growing. We are here to bring to you ways of addressing dry rot and performing the necessary repairs.

Before you can start addressing dry rot, make sure you are working from a dry surface. By doing that, you ensure the moisture conditions which might have caused the problem do not exist in the room. To absorb the additional moisture from an office, our SERVPRO technicians recommend the use of a dehumidifier. At this point, we are ready to start removing the rot from the wood.

Chipping out the rot from the affected sections is the next step. This step prevents mold from spreading to uninfected parts of the wood. You can use a woodworking tool or a knife to do the chipping. To avoid exposing your bare hands to the fungi, we advise you to wear gloves. If the wood is part of a structure that is not severely damaged, you can create appropriate sectors of the wood where the filler is to be placed later on as a way of retaining the structure's shape.

Application of a wood stabilizer on the section where you removed the rot from can also prevent further chemical reactions and rotting. Once the stabilizer is dry, it is time to apply a grain filler on the wood's porous surface. If you are not a DIY enthusiast, then consider working with certified professionals such as our team from SERVPRO.

SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo offers a wide range of services to clients after a commercial water damage experience. Call (310) 333-0654 and have all your concerns addressed.

Don't Let Water Damage in Your Los Angels Hotel Soak Your Profits

Call SERVPRO to remove the water damage from your business quickly.

Mitigation of Commercial Water Damage Throughout Your Los Angeles Hotel

Many of the hotels in Los Angeles contain different attraction for guests and others visiting for both business and vacations in the city. Restaurants, small gyms, and other amenities often require the use of water in their normal activities. Small leaks that grow larger from the non-stop water pressure can lead to emergencies requiring an immediate response while leaks that never grow larger continue to release water that slowly spreads unseen.

Many lodging facilities in Los Angeles with commercial water damage find the source originated on an upper floor. The plumbing feeding into the kitchen of an upper-level banquet area can leak water into lower floors long before anyone notices, even with more substantial leaks. SERVPRO's water damage specialists arrive with the machinery and equipment to mitigate existing damage from top to bottom and save your hotel from more permanent damage. We know how to make it all "Like it never even happened."

Shortly after our arrival, we attach sections of large-sized tubing to the windows nearest the soon-to-be-damaged areas on each affected floor. We can determine how far the water spread with our use of infrared cameras. These devices' see' the water through the variations of temperature revealed on the screen.

We also determine the extent of the moisture's presence with moisture meters. Each floor's information regarding the mitigation work gets listed in chronological order on a separate sheet, helping us keep excellent records for you.

The tubing at each window lets us direct powerful air currents into the area, and with smaller machines, we can direct this air into specific locations. Each floor also needs a dehumidifier to extract the moisture from the air as it steadily evaporates. We continue to monitor each floor to make sure progress continues as planned. 

Nearest the site and possibly for a level or two below, standing water might collect. We use extraction units specifically for this that work quickly at removing the problem. Air currents and desiccant machines work much more efficiently in damp areas than in wet ones, so a combination of equipment helps reduce costs for our customers, instead of increasing their expenses.

SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo wants to help you get things back to normal, and we can help you do this. Call us when your hotel suffers from commercial water damage of any kind. Our service line, (310) 333-0654, is always answered, year-round, with no gaps in our service. We know emergencies can happen with no warning, and damage does not wait for a 'better time.'

Flooding from external sources such as heavy rains or a municipal water breach is one concern. Your business also can experience flooding if interior plumbing lines or appliances or equipment that use water break or fail. We are ready to help you respond to this type of substantial flooding loss, and are especially effective if we partnered with you before the crisis to plan a strategy.

The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP) is a unique way to anticipate your needs during a flooding loss.

Sports Bars in LA Score Touchdowns When SERVPRO Mitigates Water Loss Incidents

Los Angeles Pubs Score with SERVPRO to Keep the Patrons Happy After a Water Damaging Event

Commercial Water Damage Restoration Options for Los Angeles Establishments

Commercial water damage restoration services can return any business to its successful days after experiencing any unfortunate water event. For instance, if you own a bar and a plumbing fault occurs when you are away, then it means business cannot run as usual. The carpets are wet, and the water level may have risen and caused the sofas, chairs, and any form of upholstery to be wet. When the fabrics and padding hold water for long, let say from 24 - 48 hours, they may create favorable conditions for mold growth. We are here to let you know the options that Los Angeles business owners have when they face such incidents.

Performing a site assessment is one of the things that our SERVPRO technicians do when we arrive at your Los Angeles pub to offer commercial water damage restoration solutions. We check whether finished wooden surfaces have become cloudy and if the frame joints have loosed. If the water is from a clean source, then there are high chances of restoring the upholstered furniture. The springs attached to the upholstery may rust and weaken, so we check if they are salvageable, if not, we recommend a replacement.
 
To protect boxes, appliances, and furniture that is yet to come into contact with the water, we move them to safe locations. By using portable or truck-mounted extractors, we can go ahead and extract the water. Proper water extraction lowers drying time and reduces chances of furniture stains.
 
Since this is a bar where there are consumable and drinkable products offered to customers and sports fans, preserving the sanitation of these items is crucial.
 
SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo is a trusted leader in the restoration industry that is locally operated and owned. Whether you are after the cleaning of your upholstery or in need of restoration services, you can call us at (310) 333-0654 and learn more about our solutions.

What Water Damages Can Do to Your Marina Del Rey Restaurant

9/18/2018 (Permalink)

Your restaurant's unique flavor and atmosphere keep the patrons coming in. Contact SERVPRO should your restaurant suffer from water damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand the Extent to Which Water Damage can Affect Your Business

Running a Marina Del Rey restaurant has a long list of challenges that extend well beyond the competition from other eateries in the area. With hungry customers to serve every single day, your business cannot afford the immediate stopping power of a water incident within the building. While you might have personnel that can tidy up the place, when you are facing a water loss situation in the business, trust in professional restoration to get you back up and running quickly.

You might not think of water damages in your Marina Del Rey restaurant as that big of a deal, but often they require much more than just a mop and bucket to remedy. Specific areas of your restaurant were not constructed to get wet, let alone have the ability to absorb moisture without warping and distorting the material. As an entrepreneur in this industry, you can appreciate that the atmosphere you provide your customers is part of the experience that makes them want to return for another meal in the future.

Another consideration is the contents of the individual areas throughout your eatery. With bars, stools, tables, and chairs throughout the primary dining area, saturation and dampness from a water incident could ruin these contents within a brief period. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to your emergency to help mitigate this loss by removing these at-risk items from the area until restoration work completes.

Carpeting is another problem altogether, as this material acts as a magnet to absorb the water and soak into the subflooring material. Our intricate carpet cleaning methods and weighted extraction techniques allow our SERVPRO technicians to remove the water from these areas of your business and preserve the material.

Running a restaurant in the area requires you to be at the top of your game as you seek to be among the most popular of choices for diners. Let our SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo water damage restoration technicians help you to overcome the water loss situation quickly so that you do not have to spend an extended period with the doors closed to potential business. Give us a call whenever you need us at (310) 333-0654.

Mitigation And Restoration Of Water Damage In Your Marina Del Rey Church

8/7/2018 (Permalink)

Even on a smaller scale, water damage can prove disastrous for the electronics and devices that you have throughout the sanctuary area.

Mitigation And Restoration Of Water Damage

Most churches throughout the Marina Del Rey area are used more frequently than Sunday mornings. Between groups, meetings, bible studies and other activities, your church is very active. With this in mind, water emergencies or even smaller scale damages should get addressed as quickly as you can to ensure that these events and groups, not to mention Sunday's service, need to get rescheduled or relocated.

While the community depends on businesses and other municipal structures throughout the area, they never even question the availability of the church on the weekends. However, much like any other commercial structure, it can fall victim to water pipe leaks and other disastrous events that create water damage effects throughout this Marina Del Rey facility.

One of the reasons that you want to address this problem quickly is the congregation. Regardless of your traditional attendance numbers, these figures can waver and decline during and even after a long restoration job in your building. The faster that our SERVPRO professionals get made aware of the problem you experienced, the sooner our technicians can work to correct these effects.

Even on a smaller scale, water damage can prove disastrous for the electronics and devices that you have throughout the sanctuary area. With so many modern churches relying heavily on visuals and sound systems, our technicians can focus more of our efforts on drying and dehumidification around these electronics to prevent costly repairs and replacements.

The pews and carpeting throughout this high traffic sanctuary must be a focal point for the restoration as well. Our SERVPRO technicians can focus our cleaning and drying efforts exclusively on this upholstery and flooring material. Vacuum extraction is often an effective approach to pull the majority of the saturation.

As much as the community might depend on the church on almost any day or night of the week, this is not feasible when you try to handle water damage situations on your own. Instead, trust in our SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo restoration technicians to help you past any obstacle that stands between the current situation and a restored building. You can reach our rapid response team anytime at (310) 333-0654.

Water Removal Services After a Broken Water Hose in Your Los Angeles Laundromat

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.

Professional Water Removal in Los Angeles Keeps the Good Times Rolling

12/27/2017 (Permalink)

Even if your business is mainly outdoors, pooling water can cause significant damage and require professional water removal services.

Rely on SERVPRO for Thorough and Safe Water Removal Services

Excess water is a problem even when much of your Los Angeles business is conducted outdoors. Regardless of the source of the water, heavy rains, a broken pipe, appliance malfunction, or another unexpected event, you need to accelerate the drainage and evacuation of the water to avoid secondary damage. We have strategies for water removal of all kinds.

Mini-golf, arcade games, race or bumper cars, and a well-equipped snack bar are attractions in need of water removal at your Los Angeles play center. A nearby water main cut by workers sent thousands of gallons of water throughout your park, both inside and out. We pump and extract water from any area of your business so that your customers can resume their long-planned birthday parties and family outings.

The indoor arcade and racetrack have many areas where water collects and hides. It is crucial that SERVPRO removes all moisture from these recesses as your play areas may develop mold or experience deterioration of the underlying support structures if water remains in place. Our work crews use moisture meters and thermal scanners to identify the location of pockets of water and to devise drying goals and timetables.

After the truck-mounted pumps and commercial water extractors complete their work, SERVPRO positions powerful air movers to hasten the drying. Interior areas also may see the use of refrigerated or desiccant humidifiers to lower the ambient humidity to below 50 percent. Raised humidity levels risk the creation of mold colonies even without added spills or flooding, so constant monitoring of humidity levels is essential.

As we remove the water, we assess it for quality. Clean water requires little more than drainage into the city’s wastewater system. Water deemed contaminated may need to be collected and disposed of according to local hazardous waste rules. As the areas your playland covers may be subject to chemical runoff, animal, and even human waste you rely on SERVPRO’s experience to ensure gray or black water is managed appropriately. Our IICRC-certified technicians pledge to follow the proper protocols to keep your business and your customers safe and dry.

SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo is ready for any water removal project you send our way. Call (310) 333-0654 to schedule an assessment as soon as you can because water damage is best cleaned and dried immediately.

Remediating Commercial Water Damage in Los Angeles

If you are facing water damage in your club, contact SERVPRO for remediation and restoration services so that you can prevent a mold infestation.

Our Technicians Quickly Assess and Dry Out Your Flooded Center

The snack bars at local Los Angeles recreation centers are popular places, but as with any space, when plumbing snakes are used to clear up clogs, they can have a great deal of damage if the pipes accidentally burst or are cut. Fast and thorough service from an IICRC trained restoration company fixes the immediate problem and keeps the rec center open for the health and enjoyment of city residents.
 
A remodeling project in the locker room behind the concession stand inadvertently cuts through pipes, causing commercial water damage to your Los Angeles health club. The common area in front of the food area has carpeting which is soaked, and the wall separating the lockers and the food prep area is saturated. We have tools and techniques that remove water fast, and dry out both the floor covering and the shared wall.
 
Your staff no doubt shut off the water in the affected area, but we make certain this is done when we arrive. If more than two inches of water is on the floor, we choose pumps to remove the water and then move to high-efficiency extractors to suction up moisture in the tiled snack bar area and the locker room. One of our experienced SERVPRO managers then assesses the condition of the saturated carpeting. It is quite disruptive to pull carpeting up, so we may try to extract the water in place.
 
A weighted wand is used by trained SERVPRO employees to extract the water from both the carpeting and the padding below, section by section. Because of the weight of the wand and the intensity of the suction risks harm to the carpet, it is essential that one of our experts complete this job. Stretching and tearing of the carpeting is possible otherwise, and the carpeting also risks suffering from delamination, where the fibers pull off the backing if an inexperienced operator does the task.
 
Other members of the SERVPRO water damage team set up air movers and dehumidifiers to accelerate drying. A health club or rec center is already at heightened risk of mold development because of the humidity level. The last thing needed is to feed mold spores with the excess moisture caused by this accident.

Cleanup of a bar with water damage in Marina Del Rey can be a tricky affair. Los Angeles as a whole has a very diverse array of nightlife locations and fine establishments, and this is perhaps more true for Marina Del Ray than anywhere else. Every bar is different and thus requires a different approach. We work to customize our interactions with every local bar owner and manager when they run into issues through representatives who are available around the clock and integration of the SERVPRO ERP system.
 
We recognize the unique challenges that are inherent with bars when they sustain commercial water damage in Marina Del Rey. Other types of businesses have different priorities, needs, and budgets, but bars tend to need some of the fastest, most inexpensive service possible to reopen quickly and without significant financial loss. We take these considerations into account in all of our dealings, which is why our emphasis is on speed. Our technicians respond quickly, our machines get to work in no time, and your business should be able to reopen after as little delay as possible.

Fulfilling these needs can be a challenge. Luckily, most bars are relatively easy to clean up. Smaller buildings are usually much faster work for our technicians, and bars tend to contain relatively few obstructing machines, safety hazards, and obstacles that would otherwise impede our work. Furthermore, the employees and owners of most bars are mature, respectable people that are easy to deal with. As a result, bars are among our most favored local businesses to deal with, as they are always a pleasure to work with and relatively easy to restore.

Water-logged Art Galleries can Benefit from Commercial Water Removal in Los Angeles

8/3/2017 (Permalink)

For standing water, pump trucks and hand-held water-extracting devices begin the restoration process.

Learn How SERVPRO Can Help Your Art Gallery

Displaying local artists' masterpieces holds responsibilities toward both the artists and those viewing their work. Making sure that your gallery is a safe place for both people and the many mediums that artwork comes in can be a task that only seems simple on the surface.

When any amount of excessive moisture, from high humidity to a broken water line over an extended period, threatens your Los Angeles gallery's ability to function as it should, commercial water removal can act as a reset button. SERVPRO can restore your facility, so comments focus on how it is once again “Like it never even happened” instead of how bedraggled your gallery makes the art look haphazard and uninspired.

Our SERVPRO technicians do this by assessment of the moisture content in different sections of your location, and then working to minimize any water or moisture discovered. From the floor up to the ceiling, and between each wall and corridor, and everything in between, we can restore normal dryness levels.

For standing water, pump trucks and hand-held water-extracting devices begin the restoration process. Heating mats finish the process on floors, ensuring that warping is not an issue in the future. Air circulation is of vital importance so that canvas and other fabrics in your artists' crafts are not at risk of developing microbial growth later, so air blowers and dehumidifiers are part of our methodology.

Because we employ those who understand that each of our customers must support their respective clientele, we can assure you that your job receives the care and attention it should. Our technicians train and study, so they receive IICRC certifications, keeping them up-to-date on the latest in textile care, carpet repair, and prevention of the many types of damage water can create.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


For artwork of various types, we can discuss their specific requirements, ensuring that your situation always receives the best results possible. When your gallery needs water removal services, call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo. Our number is (310) 333-0654, and we are available whenever you call.

Restoration Of A Bookstore's Inventory Suffering From Commercial Water Damage In Marina Del Rey

5/18/2017 (Permalink)

Bookstores combating commercial water damage from broken or leaky water pipes should realize they are fighting time, also.

Bookstore's Suffering From Commercial Water Damage Should Call A Professional Restoration Company

Books are an important part of most American's lives, and almost everyone has a favorite book, author, or genre they love to indulge in from time to time. Many tourists also make it a part of their packing to bring along a book or even several to read when relaxing by the pool at their hotel or a nearby beach. Sometimes, books are bought on site, and this is where area bookstores come in handy.

In Marina del Rey, bookstores combating commercial water damage from broken or leaky water pipes should realize they are fighting time, also. Even though bookstores are not thought of as being 'real' tourist destinations, a high percentage of their patrons are often from out of the area and on vacation, meaning that seasonal highs and lows most likely already affect profit margins. When inventory is at risk of being damaged so badly it cannot be sold; then preventative measures need to be taken immediately.

Water can damage a bookstore's structure, from the interior walls all the way to the exterior facing. Much of the damage experienced is dependent on where the water is coming from and at what rate it is entering. Even slowly dripping connections that could use a bit more Teflon tape have been known to bring about saturated gypsum board, stained ceilings, rotted carpeting, and musty odors. Standing water can be non-existent, but water damage may still be present.

Water-damaged bookstores, however, often present unique challenges, and at SERVPRO, we are ready for them. We are skilled expert professionals who have experience restoring damaged buildings of all types. We also have access to lyophilization equipment, which can save your inventory.

Lyophilization, or freeze-drying, has shown its benefits many times in restoring different types of media, including rare books. With lyophilization, your inventory is frozen. Frozen books experience no more wicking of water into dry parts of pages, stopping the damage and keeping mold from growing. When at the appropriate temperature, a process called sublimation begins with the assistance of a created vacuum. This vacuum is a vital aspect of lyophilization because it is what draws the moisture out of the frozen materials. These items go from wet or damp to frozen to dry with this process, and the result is books that are still in saleable condition.

When you need help with water damage in your bookstore, give SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo a call at (310) 333-0654. We can restore any size establishment affected by water or any other malicious element and keep your business thriving.

Water can penetrate any space and takes advantage of every crack, causing damage to your structure.

Water Damage In Your Recording Studio


As a business proprietor, you likely realize that moisture is the enemy for your recording studio, especially when it has the capability to shut your business down. Water can penetrate any space and takes advantage of every crack, causing damage to your structure. No matter how moisture has seeped into your building, the response needs to be the same. Bringing in a professional commercial water damage specialist like SERVPRO can help you make sure there are no lingering health threats for you or your employees after the moisture is gone.

Hazards To Health
A lot of sewage backup and floods can have deadly bacteria in them, and even the smallest amount of skin contact can leave someone very ill. A certified technician from SERVPRO not only has the tools to get rid of the moisture, but they also have the knowledge needed to get your building up and running again after commercial water damage has occurred, giving your employees a safe environment to work in the Marina Del Rey area. It can be surprising how much damage water can cause, and many times it is underestimated by business owners. However, when your commercial building is hit with a burst pipe or a flood, the situation can get out of hand quite fast, which is why these accidents are easily the most expensive problems you face as a business owner. Contaminated water creates more than structural problems, as it can leave serious threats once it is taken out of your property.

Water Damage
A lot of sewage backups, floods and other water which is contaminated usually causes the worst damage to your business. Contaminated water usually contains toxic materials from animal feces, chemical residues, and even parasites. Viruses, bacteria, and fungi can grow quickly in water which is contaminated, and severe health risks are also present. The problem can get worse from the composition of your commercial building, which can fill with organic materials like wood, drywall, and material which is trapped in carpet fibers, allowing may pathogens room to grow. In the first 24 to 48 hours, mold can start building up behind the walls, spores are released, and any organic materials which are soaked from fluids which are contaminated usually have to be thrown away and replaced since repairing is not an option.

That is why at SERVPRO, we dry your building quickly and then apply antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal agents to every surface which had contact with the water to ensure that we eliminate all contaminants in the air. In this way, you and your employees can return to a safe working environment, and you don't have to worry about inhaling any contaminated air. If your commercial building is in need of water damage cleanup and repair, contact our team at SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo. We are always available to help you get your business back on track in a timely fashion – just give us a call at (310) 333-0654.
