A staffing company

Just this year we were called to do mitigation on a staffing company. This was a water loss that affected quite a few rooms in the building. At first, they were not able to pin point what was the cause of loss because the water was rising up from the floor in various rooms. You could see that the water was seeping thru the floor planks as you step on them.

In one office there was an anti-slip mat where the water was trapped under, so when it was pack out day to start drying, the mat was removed and a whole puddle was discovered. We set up about 9-10 air movers and 2-3 dehumidifiers to begin the drying process.

The plumbers were able to find the source of the leak and fix it and the pack out has already started. Everything from most of the affected rooms were packed out and moved out.

 The drying process was not helping the floor so unfortunately the floor had to be removed to be able to get under and so that no moisture was left and mold doesn’t start growing.

SERVPRO of Bellflower finished the drying and now we are in the reconstruction stage.

The Ace Hardware

The sales floor 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!

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."

Commercial Shut Offs

Utility shut offs Utility shut offs

We cannot stress this enough. How important it is to know where are all you main shut off. Now where the main water shut off. As well as the electricity, and gas if the commercial building has gas.

I’ve been to many commercial buildings where the persons in charge did not know where the main shut offs. That is a bit concerning for several reasons.

Let say that for whatever reason the building needs emergency repairs and need the main shut off turned off. How will you do it quickly. Or let’s say one of the supply lines broke and a huge amount of water is flooding the building, how will you turn it off as quickly as possible. Now there is water touching electrical lines and need to turn off electricity NOW. Are you able to do that when you don’t even where the shut off are? No.

There is a service that SERVPRO of Bellflower offer that is very beneficial to any commercial building. This service is called ERP (Emergency Ready Profile). Read “How is an ERP beneficial to my Business?
