Water Damage at the Belle Porte Residence
Taped down plastic on the floor
It is always so hard to have to go thru a water loss at your property, now imagine how much harder it is when it happens in the holidays. That is the worst.
That is what happened to one of our clients. She called in the beginning of November, right before Thanksgiving. One of the pipes that ran under her home in the crawl space ruptures. That caused water damage to the floor, subfloor and the framing. We had to move everything out of her master bed room, the hallway and part of the living room. Then we had to tent the floor. That means that we tape down plastic to cover the floor and the set up a dehumidifier with a plastic tunnel connecting the taped down plastic tape and the dehumidifier. That way the hot air is concentrated on the floor and extracting the moisture only from the floor as well.
It didn’t take it very long to dry the floor but the subfloor and the framing took about two days longer than the floor.
Once done drying out, then we start with the repairs as carpet was removed. Once the carpet was places and small touches were done. Then the move back off all their belongings and furniture was done. “Like it never even happened.”
Removed Material in the living room
This work for this property was started on the 15th of December 2021 and we are already working on the repairs.
Here is how it all started. We received a call from a customer on December 13th at 12:30 pm saying that he needed our services because he had a leak in the living room ceiling. He advised that he went upstairs trying to find out where the leak was coming from. As he inspected the upstairs rooms, he notices that the toilet tank was overflowing. He immediately turned the toilet.
Our techs arrived on site on December 14th,2021 at 8am per customer’s request. They stated the inspection in the top floor and found high levels of moisture on the vinyl sheet flooring in the bathroom. Continuing the inspection to the bottom floor high levels of moisture were also detected on part of the wall and ceiling of the living room.
Due to the year when the property was built, it needed lead and asbestos testing. Test results came back negative and we started the mitigation process in which we began the drying material that can be dried in place and removing affected material that is not salvageable.
The repair process is almost done as well. In a matter of weeks, we are almost done with everything.
If you have water damage for what ever reason, can me a toilet overflow, an appliance that malfunctioned, or even due to mother nature, we are here and can handle anything big or small.

We, here at SERVPRO of Bellflower, understand that Bellflower is a small city, small community and since we are a small community, we look out for each other.
Recently a restaurant here in Bellflower, CA had to close its doors for a few days due to Covid. One or two of their employees got covid and they understood that safety come first.
This restaurant is very well known here in Bellflower, CA. Everybody was sad to see that this restaurant had to close temporarily. As the days grew closer for them to open up the restaurant, we offered to do sanitizing of the front of the restaurant because we saw that they were cautious and wanted to make sure that their staff and customers were safe.
We did the sanitizing and they were happy because now they had peace of mind that they can open the restaurant with confidence that it is clean and safe for customers.

Residence at Fanwood Bellflower, CA
Blue tape was placed to enclose where there was moisture detected.
We received this customer who needed assistance because he noticed water leaking from the ceiling in his living room. SERVPRO of Bellflower arrived at the property not to long after and proceeded to the inspection. Upon our inspection the tech noticed that they had a crack/splitting in the rolled roof. There was where the water entered their home due to the recent heavy rains.
Inside the home you were able to observe that there was yellow staining in the ceiling and bit of bubbling.
That day our field tech installed a roof tarp to help minimize the water intrusion in the case it rained again.
The insurance was contacted and a claim was opened. The whole mitigation process was covered. We are all done with the mitigation and now to the repairs.
We also have updates on our work thru social media.
The Briercrest property
Different stages of the work performed
In every rainy season we get a lot of work. Mostly Homes with roof damage. They call because they have a leak in their ceiling and this year is no different.
This owner of a property in Bellflower, CA. noticed a leak thru the bathroom fixture. They did the smart thing and called SERVPRO of Bellflower.
Our team arrived within the hour. The owner explained that they were able to set up a roof tarp. We added to the roof tarp to maximize the protection against further water intrusion.
High levels of moisture were detected in the ceiling and wall. Water was also observed on the floor of the bathroom.
We suggested to the owner that he get the roof repaired by a licensed professional before any mitigation service starts because if we would have started and it were to rain again and water seeps thru again the drying was done for nothing. They did get the roof repaired and we did the dry out. Now it’s time to start the reconstruction.
If you have water damage due to rains call us, SERVPRO of Bellflower.

The Ace Hardware
The sales floor before and after
This was an emergency commercial job. We received a call on a Sunday around 6pm requesting emergency serviced due to an over flow of a toilet. Of course, the team headed to our facility to load up the special equipment, tools, and specialized chemicals for this type of job. This job was a bit far from our facility but we were there in a matter of less than 2 hours.
Our team got there and began the water extraction so that the damages did not extend further. The owner of the hardware store was surprised that our team responded on a Sunday evening. That our team was there in less than 2 hours and got the job done so quick. We also did the mitigation and the repairs.
Happy Customers, Happy franchise!
Waiting lobby before and after
On a regular Monday in December, we received a call for a nail salon owner in a little bit of a worried state of mood. I answered and the man on the other side sounded a bit worried. He was needed a cleanup company to remove water for a business. He explained that a main water line in his location ruptured and flooded his store but also flooded the neighbor’s location. He was not much worried for his location but that of his neighbors. He requested that we go do the water removal as soon as possible. I advised not to worry, that I would have a team at his location that same day in a matter of less than 2 hours. I aske if he knew what the main water shut off are and if he had already shut it off. He advised that he did know and he did shut it off.
Our team arrived onsite an hour after and did the water removal. He seemed a bit more relieved after. Now his concern was to have the place dried. So, he also hired us to do the remediation. He was impressed how quick we work to get things done and with the best quality work. Even though it was his unit’s issue that damaged the neighbors issue we treated the neighbors as if they were the ones that hired us because it doesn’t matter who we were hired by, we know that everyone affected by this most likely stressed out by this loss.
In a matter of weeks, we did the water removal, the remediation and the repairs. Back to business in weeks not months! "Like it never even happened."
