Commercial Water Damage Due to Decaying Roofing Materials in Warehouses in Canoga Park

Your warehouse's structure is a significant factor in protecting your business's inventory in Canoga Park. Each part is just as important as the last when it comes to keeping out the elements, and this makes maintaining your property a crucial part of business operations.
 
Small problems within your roof's structure in Canoga Park can grow and lead to commercial water damage inside your facility. SERVPRO can send in IICRC-certified specialists and technicians who know what to do to mitigate such damage and get things stabilized and productive again, “Like it never even happened.”
 
Our employees have experience in working in almost every environment and can get your operations back on track again using effective methods that address all of your concerns. Our teams significantly reduce the amount of time your business remains stalled or at partial capacity because of SERVPRO's commitment to the mitigation and restoration of your property.
 
We use thermal imaging cameras equipped with infrared technology to locate the disintegrated areas in your roof that require attention and repairs, so roofing professionals spend less time performing the necessary work. Shaving time off wherever possible by ensuring that we mark every opening in your warehouse's roof also means that roofers carry out a thorough job in re-securing your roof but still finishing quickly.
 
On the inside of your warehouse, water damage can affect raw materials, produced goods, equipment, internal structures, and the environment your employees work in, so getting standing water extracted needs to happen quickly. This might involve small puddles under equipment or hidden water inside cracks in the concrete slab. SERVPRO works with you during the water damage mitigation process and does everything possible to assist you in reducing associated costs.
 
We use different equipment to bring water vapor levels back down to normal. Air movers keep water vapor from condensing while desiccant machines extract the moisture from the air as it passes through. Our Injectidry equipment sends warm, dry air into small cavities in walls, ceilings, and flooring to speed up evaporation rates. Normal humidity does not permit mold to grow, and it also does not facilitate water damage in spreading. Cleaning up any current water damage in your warehouse can take place once the conditions that created it no longer exist.
 
SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills is ready to take your call about your business's water damage situation. Contact us, day or night, at (818) 998-1500. We also serve businesses in Winnetka and Bell Canyon.

How Our Professionals Mitigate Commercial Water Damage And Foul Odors In Your Canoga Park Hotel

Commercial How Our Professionals Mitigate Commercial Water Damage And Foul Odors In Your Canoga Park Hotel One cause of bad odors hotels in Canoga Park might experience come from commercial water damage.

Your Hotel's Odor Control Needs After Mitigation Of Commercial Water Damage In Canoga Park

Many sources of unwanted odors can occur in a busy hotel in Canoga Park. Guests' activities from smoking to accidents can cause bad odors to linger long after check-out time, and regular cleaning by your staff might not eliminate them entirely.

One cause of bad odors hotels in Canoga Park might experience come from commercial water damage. Even after mitigation of such damage finishes and workers leave, bad odors can still permeate the air. SERVPRO can help you get things back to normal in such situations. When we provide water damage mitigation services, we also include odor control.

Because we only remove materials that sustained damage, other materials that require cleaning and nothing else remain intact and in place. Sometimes the microscopic changes that take place and the by-products involved in the changes materials suffer when becoming damaged by water create unpleasant odors. These odors can seem permanent, but our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) can rid your hotel of the problem.

We use hydroxyl and ozone-producing machines. However, we cannot safely use ozone in occupied areas, so we rely on hydroxyl gas instead. This gas is so potent, and it can remove the worst odors. Many factories use hydroxyl where odor control is essential to workers' comfort and safety.

When we perform water damage mitigation, we use air scrubbers, as these greatly diminish the amount of dust and debris in the air. These can eliminate many odors, but even with the best units, odors can still linger. When carpeting becomes saturated with water, odors can develop long before physical damage occurs. Such carpeting often remains in place without the need to remove and replace it. However, we can solve the odors stemming from the offending areas with injections of odor-eliminating gels. These can also provide a means to scent the area with something more pleasant.

Regardless of how badly your water damage issues were in the past, solving the odors left behind can make your hotel feel bright and fresh, “Like it never even happened.” Call us, SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills, at (818) 998-1500, to get things going in the right direction again.

Commercial Water Damage in Your West Hills Hotel Guests expect a great smelling room that is free of water damage. Contact SERVPRO if your hotel is facing damage after an incident.

SERVPRO Technicians Effectively Remediate Water Damage in Your Hotel

Running a hotel in West Hills is undoubtedly a lot of work. Not only is there fierce competition between various other overnight accommodations, but you also work to provide the best experience and amenities to your guests. The last thing that your business needs is a water incident that could pose a threat to different areas of your building, let alone a high traffic area frequented by guests.

Even a small-scale incident can cause much unrest among the guests that you have. As you strive to rent each room every night, reputation carries weight through online services and rating sites. This aspect is why taking care of commercial water damages in your West Hills hotel quickly is essential to keeping that reputation high.

Our SERVPRO team can help you to overcome this unfortunate occurrence efficiently and thoroughly, minimizing the impact on the guests in your business and helping to keep your operations running smoothly.

One of the first things that you have to consider in an incident like this is where the problem began. While our SERVPRO professionals can help isolate the literal source, you have to likely section off the affected areas (and any areas that could later become affected) until the restoration gets completed.

This approach might limit some of the amenities or available rooms that you have to offer, but does not stifle the flow of guests, either. Our technicians work quickly to extract any present water, to dry it completely, and to further assess the situation for lingering moisture that could cause greater concerns in the immediate future.

It is likely that your hotel has maintenance and custodial services, but professional restoration is much faster and more efficient overall. A single bad YELP review could throttle your business, so take the necessary steps to get the job done correctly.

If you have a water damage event in your hotel, you should not waste any time to get the problem resolved. Give our experienced SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills technicians a call today at (818) 998-1500.

Mitigating Commercial Fire Damage in a West Hills Movie Theater

Commercial Mitigating Commercial Fire Damage in a West Hills Movie Theater West Hills Commercial Properties Like Movie Theaters Rely on SERVPRO for Fire & Smoke Damage Cleanup and Restoration

SERVPRO Strives to Cleanup and Restore Commercial Buildings After Fire & Smoke Damaging Events

Many people love watching movies at home, but a trip out to see the latest release with the family or friends rates very high on many people's list of fun things to do around West Hills. Fire regulations forbid smoking, but offenders still do break the rules. When this happens, avoiding getting caught often trumps putting a cigarette out safely.

If a West Hills theater suffers commercial fire damage because of a smoker, the costs to repair everything "Like it never even happened" can become a major setback. At SERVPRO, we work with your insurance company to help make sure that all damaged areas receive the attention necessary while keeping costs as low as possible for you, the customer.
 
Fire damage can easily affect any area of your business, including food products, carpeting, seating, walls, doors and entryways, and anything else. Water from firefighters can also cause problems, and we are ready to help you deal with this effectively. Smoke odors caused by soot can continue to pose severe problems for patrons far into the future if not treated properly.
 
Certified by the IICRC, SERVPRO technicians easily and quickly remove damaged sections of materials in small pieces so they can fit into double bags, making for easier removal. We bring in replacement materials after we finish all of the other work. This prevents moisture from extinguishing the fire from affecting it and also keeps it safely out of the way while we work.
 
Both moisture in the air and odor-causing particles can easily stay there unless removed. This is why we use our air scrubbing machinery. Even with wiping every surface down to remove soot, the odor can still bother people. High levels of humidity not only make these odors ore noticeable, but they also make it easier for mold and mildew to begin growing. These microbes can grow almost anywhere, including under seats and also between them, and anywhere else inside your theater. There is also the concern of patrons tracking mold spores home with them.
 
When odor remains, we can use ozone treatments, or thermal fogging. Both can rigorously decrease the amount of odor experienced, with thermal fogging being the more effective of the two choices in most situations. Thermal fogging techniques mimic the pathways that the smoke followed much more than ozone methods do, making it more reliable. Hydroxyl generators can also be very effective devices to neutralize malordous particlulates. Indoor air quality of a high level is a crucial aspect of the overall treatment.
 
SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills' employees love watching movies, much like everyone else, and wants to help ensure that your movie theater or other workplace remains a safe place for families to enjoy some time together. Call us at (818) 998-1500 for help.

SERVPRO Provides Quick and Efficient Water Damage Restoration Services

Many people in Canoga Park have developed an interest in staying fit by increasing the amount of exercise they engage in while still pampering themselves. A spa and gym membership fills this need for many individuals, while also providing real-time socialization with others.

The management of spas, gyms, and other fitness centers in Canoga Park understand that showering, spa treatments, and swimming can cause commercial water damage to their facilities. All pose problems by causing ongoing moisture accumulation, and efforts at dehumidification might not always provide the desired results. The results achieved can also vary considerably.

SERVPRO Removes Water and Helps Restore a Special Ambience to your Shop

When running a retail store in Canoga Park, it requires that many various employees of different levels work together. Cooperation and communication ensure a smoothness in operations exists.

Other situations, though, may not be as easily dealt with and bring back under control.
 
Canoga Park retail stores that have existing commercial water damage can seem dirtier than their competitors. This image stems from not only the visual impact that the damage can impact on a building's interior walls, ceilings, and even floors but also because of the odor that it can emit into the air.
