  • Elizabeth Marie

The crew for SERVPRO Woodland Hills was amazing. Under the best of circumstances, it is difficult to have people working in your house while you too have to work, but SERVPRO was as unobtrusive as could be while mitigating major water damage in our kitchen. Matt, Nima and Orlando were courteous, knowledgeable, and very flexible. They even gave us a call-back late on a Sunday night, after we decided to change our schedule for the following morning. We highly recommend their services.

  • Chiara Mott

Matt and Nima were amazing in handling our flood situation. I was at work for a couple days and I trusted them to take care of my backyard flood issue. When I came back from work the entire backyard was professionally cleaned up and looking good as new. Matt and Nima worked tirelessly throughout the night to get things right again in my backyard. Thank you guys, and thank you SERVPRO.

With the holidays coming up it is more common to light candles in your home. Although we love to light candles burning they are one of the highest causes of housefires. It is unsafe to light candles and leave them unattended while they are lit. The following are some ways to help keep your home safer. 

  1. Keep a candle in the same place once it is lit and do not touch the flame. 
  2. Keep the candles at a distance from anything that could burn. (ex: curtains and carpets)
  3. Candles should be placed out of reach from pets and children. 
  4. Don't place candles around air currents, drafts and vents. 
  5. Blow out candles prior to leaving a room or going to bed. 
  6. Check that the candles are completely out. 

If you have a fire loss from a candle it is possible that additional clean up will be needed. Call SERVPRO of Woodland Hills for trained professionals. SERVPRO understands the challenges with fires to your home and will correctly evaluate the situation to determine the best way to move forward.

Sink Overflow Call SERVPRO if you have a water damage. "We are always here to help"

Have you had water damage in the past? In a water damage situation you not only have to act fast but it also helps to know which type of water contamination has affected your property. Knowing the cause of loss helps determine the category of the loss. Knowing the category of the loss benefits in creating the proper cleanup plan.               

Category 1

Category one is known as a clean water loss. Meaning it is not contaminated water. An example of a clean water loss is if the sink is left running and overflows. If category 1 water is left sitting for too long or it travels through insulation it can turn into a category 2 or even 3 loss. 

Category 2

Category two water is known as gray water. It is higher than category 1 due to having some levels of bacteria. A category 2 loss could be caused by a dishwasher or washing machine. With category 2 water it is necessary to sanitize and vacuum after the loss is cleaned up. 

Category 3

Category three water is grossly contaminated water. An example of a category 3 loss would be if a sewer line broke or a toilet overflowed. A category 3 loss has high bacteria and chemical levels.. Having a cat 3 loss on your property means that everything the water came in contact with needs to be removed. A category 3 loss must be sanitized and vacuumed.

Commercial Water Loss Call SERVPRO of Woodland Hills for help on your commercial water loss.

It is important to be aware of the signs of water damage. Typically commercial water losses are larger and more challenging than residential losses. It is easy to prevent water damage when you are aware of the signs. 

  • Check your appliances. Checking your refrigerator, and dishwasher for leaks helps ensure that the plumbing is working. 
  • HVAC unit. During the hot weather the HVAC unit is in use more and might cause a leak. Make sure you check for any signs of water damage. 
  • Check windows and doors. During the cold and rainy seasons it is possible that water can enter through poorly sealed windows. 
  • Check your roof. Check for damages to the shingles or tiles and make sure no water can get in.
