Floods are the most common natural disasters. Even if you don’t live in a high flood area there is still a chance that flooding can happen to your property. Below you can read more about the different types of flooding to help you understand your own risk:

1. Flash floods - occur when heavy rainfall causes a fast rise of rapid-moving water that sweeps everything in its path.  

2. Coastal floods - are caused by strong winds or storms that move towards a coast during high tide. 

3. River floods - gradual riverbank overflows caused by heavy rainfall over an extended period of time. 

4. Urban floods - occur when the drainage system in a city or town fails to absorb the water from heavy rain. The lack of natural drainage in an urban area can also contribute to flooding.

5. Pluvial floods - form in flat areas where the terrain can’t absorb the rainwater, causing puddles and ponds to appear.

Fire Damage Leads to Water Damage & Mold Damage

9/30/2019 (Permalink)

Servpro logo with kitchen fire in background For immediate assistance call SERVPRO of Woodland Hills 818-882-4556

Firefighters use water to extinguish the fire but this also saturates contents with wet smoke, and soot making the cleanup very difficult. 

When water combines with toxic soot it produces a chemical reaction that is acid and will damage property further if left too long.  The high-pressure water from fire hoses, and in fact, any water, that gets into the crevasses of interior spaces, attics, ceiling, in walls and along floorboards and carpeting, if not removed and dried quickly will develop the problem of toxic black mold as well as the fire damage. This process happens very quickly so you need to act immediately to avoid further damage. 

Call us at 818-882-4556 for immediate assistance for residential and commercial fire and water restoration and smoke odor removal cleaning services.

walls and ceiling removed after water damage incident You can't afford to wait when it comes to water damage. Call 818-882-4556 now

Water Damage Quickly Turns to Mold

Stagnant and standing water is a breeding ground for bacteria and mold spores. The longer it stands, the more potential for risk. After sitting 48 to 72 hours, fresh or potable water becomes a category 2, which means it is contaminated. After 7 days it becomes classified as a category 3, which is highly contaminated and considered black water.  In many cases, the source of water damage can be from a sewage pipe, which would increase the risks and danger.

Mold caused by moisture

Mold growth is encouraged by warmth and humid conditions. Where there is mold, there has been water damage. Once mold sets in, it spreads quickly and makes for an unhealthy environment for humans and pets everywhere it is present.

Secondary moisture/humidity

Often people do not realize how much moisture from water damage can affect their belongings. Warm and closed environments release moisture into the air. Built-up moisture causes damage to furniture, electronics, pictures, wallpaper, and many other household items.

Prevention is Key to Survival. SERVPRO of Woodland Hills Fire Tips.

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills - sharing important fire safety information for you and your loved ones. Taking these precautionary measures can drastically reduce the risk of fire, injury, property loss, and even death.

 Fire safety is an important topic, especially for children, the elderly and individuals with special needs. A fire can destroy everything in its path and devastate the people and communities it affects. 

  • Prevention – Does your home have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors? Are the batteries changed and the detectors tested twice a year? Is there a fire extinguisher? Can you operate a fire extinguisher?
  • Escape Routes – Are exits accessible? Are the pathways to the exits free from clutter and obstacles? Is there an evacuation plan in place? Are there pets that might need to be rescued?
  • Treasures –  Keep valuables, special keepsakes and heirlooms (e.g., jewelry, photos, collectibles) in a fire proof safe or off site in a safe deposit box.
  • Hoarding – Consider how excess accumulation might make it difficult for people to leave their home/possessions and how many items might help fuel the fire.

Be proactive! Don’t risk becoming a statistic! For more information about Fire Safety, call or stop by SERVPRO of Woodland Hills

Woodland Hills Water Damage Cleanup 24/7 SERVPRO 818-882-4556

Water damage cleanup tips form SERVPRO of Woodland Hills -

  1. Don't enter any water damaged areas without conducting a thorough safety check. It may not be safe for you to enter or remain in the building. • Water damage can weaken the structure of the building. If the ceilings are sagging, stay out. • Be sure the electricity has been shut off. Submerged electrical appliances and electronics can cause electrical shock.
  2. Remove standing water, use towels to soak up smaller pools of water on furniture, counters, and other surfaces. If the area is flooded with more than a foot or two of water, wait for a professional water damage remediation team like SERVPRO of Woodland Hills to arrive.
  3. Remove area rugs from and spread them outside to dry. Place aluminum foil or wood blocks under furniture legs to prevent carpet stains. When wood furniture is exposed to excessive moisture, the stain can transfer to the carpet leaving permanent marks. Remove smaller items such as books, toys, chairs, and other objects from the area.

When in doubt you can always call your local SERVPRO for advice or a free inspection to help you and your property get back to "Like it never even happened."

Got Mold?

2/4/2019 (Permalink)

Mold can be hiding anywhere. Trust SERVPRO of Woodland Hills to make it "Like it never even happened." 818-882-4556

 SERVPRO of Woodland Hills can help get you through this.

How did it get here?

Molds grow by digesting and destroying the material they grow on. They can be found almost anywhere and can grow on just about any material as long as conditions are favorable.  Mold needs oxygen, moisture, and a material to grow on. Molds reproduce by making spores. These spores become airborne. If spores land on suitable material and conditions are favorable, the mold will begin to grow.

Even though molds are everywhere, they may become a problem when they begin to grow indoors. Many building materials such as drywall, ceiling tiles and wood framing contain cellulose, which is a material on which molds can grow. As molds grow on building materials they may become destructive. Molds may grow unnoticed, above ceilings, behind walls, in attics and basements or in crawl spaces. Molds can cause staining of walls and ceilings and can begin to break down the studs and joists of buildings causing extensive property damage.

Excessive moisture is a key ingredient which causes molds to grow. Sources of excess moisture may be plumbing leaks, leaking roofs or windows, high humidity, flooding, or condensation inside walls due to poor insulation.

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills has 24 years of Mold Remediation experience and knows exactly how to help get mold under control.

2 Ways Water Can Get in During a Storm

10/11/2018 (Permalink)

Well equipped to handle any size disaster.

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills Storm Damage Tips

Did you know that there are two types of water damage?

Yes, there are 2 ways water can get into your home or business. From the top and from the bottom. If it infiltrates the property from the roof it is usually from faulty shingles or gutters that were not cleaned.  Please clean your gutters!  It is definitely an inconvenience but, fortunately, it is usually covered by your insurance policy.

If it enters from the base of the property it is called groundwater infiltration and this type of water damage is most likely not going to be covered.  But the damage needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible. Remove the standing water by using a wet/dry vacuum, mopping it up, or using a sump pump. If you have fans, bring them in to move the air around and dry out the space. Hint: If there is any evidence of mold, do not use the fans since this will spread the spores. If the water level can be measured in inches you need to call in a professional. 

The water remediation professionals at SERVPRO of Woodland Hills have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to make it, “Like it never even happened.

Are You Ready for a Storm?

10/11/2018 (Permalink)

Whole house flooding after a storm

Ways to prepare before the storm arrives: 

  • Look around. Lawn furniture, toys, tables, and chairs should be brought inside or stored away. Secure your grill.
  • Remove any solar-powered ground lights. Ground lights that are hard-wired can be left in the ground.
  • Wrap burlap around ornamental trees or fragile bushes. You can also stake and string trees and bushes.
  • Take in any window air conditioners.

After a storm damage:

Pet Storm Preparedness

Don't let your pet be unprepared.

Pet Storm tips from SERVPRO of Woodland Hills -

Did you know that almost all dog and cat owners don't have disaster plans for their pets? SERVPRO of Woodland Hills urges you to make sure this isn’t you.

You made a disaster kit for yourself and family, so make one for your pet. This includes medical records and medication, food and water with can openers, leashes, and carriers.

Tips:

  • Keep pets inside during a storm. Animals can become confused and run away from home during a disaster.
  • Arrange a safe haven for you and your pets during evacuation. Do not leave pets behind.
  • Store an emergency kit—with items such as pet food, bottled water, medical records, a blanket, a flashlight and leashes—as close to an exit as possible.
  • Make sure all pets wear collars and tags. 
  • Have your pet microchipped in case of a lost collar. 
  • Place a rescue alert sticker to your front home to let rescuers know that there are pets inside.
  • Choose a caregiver to take care of your pet in the event you are unable to.

Planning Your Escape

10/10/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Escape Route

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills helping you plan a way out of a fire.

A flame can quickly grow out of control and turn into a large, uncontrollable fire in less than 30 seconds, it’s vital for you to establish and plan your family’s fire escape plan. Remember, building your family’s fire escape plan can keep your family safe!

Fires are the most common disaster in the nation, so when a fire happens, there is no time to waste.  A fire escape plan can help ensure that your family evacuates quickly and safely through routes that are pre-planned discussed and practiced.

Here’s a plan to help you prepare your family’s escape:

  1. Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, and on every level of your house. Test each alarm monthly and change batteries at least once a year.
  2. Draw a floor plan of your home, marking ways out of every room. It’s important to make sure that all family members know how to open doors and window locks. Also, if you have security bars, they should have a quick-release feature that can be operated from the inside.
  3. If your house has two or more floors, place escape ladders in or near windows to provide an escape route. If you live in an apartment, never use the elevator to escape, use the stairs.
  4. Set a plan in advance for who will help the very young, elderly, or physically challenged members of your family.
  5. Teach your family that when the smoke alarm sounds, they should:
    • Roll out of bed onto the floor.
    • Stay low beneath the smoke and crawl to the door.
    • Check the door for heat with the back of the hand. If the door is cool, then open it slowly and check to see if it’s safe to crawl to the nearest exit. If the door is hot, don’t open it! Instead, place a towel or blanket across the bottom of the door to keep smoke out and crawl to the nearest window to exit the house.
  6. Choose an outside meeting place a safe distance (more than 300 feet away) from your home and make sure everyone knows to meet at this location after they escape the burning house.
  7. Once everyone is safely at the designated meeting spot, call your local fire department from a friend or neighbor’s house.
  8. Under no circumstances should you re-enter your house. Once you are out of the burning house, stay out until a fire official gives you permission to re-enter the house.
  9. Practice your family’s fire escape plan at least once every six months. It’s important to practice it during the day and during the night and make the fire drill as realistic as possible. Be sure to practice all escape routes to ensure all household members know how to escape safely.

Mold in Woodland hills Home or Business? We've got you!

10/10/2018 (Permalink)

Don't wait for water damage to turn to mold. Call SERVPRO 818-882-4556


Mold can spread through a home or business in as little as 48 hours after being exposed to water.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

If You See Signs of Mold, Call SERVPRO of Woodland Hills Today – 818-882-4556

How Bad Is It? Categorizing Your Woodland Hills Water Damage

9/6/2018 (Permalink)

Don't delay. Call SERVPRO today. 818-882-4556

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills knows when your property has been water damage, you really CANNOT wait around for a convenient time to start the cleanup. Secondary damage from mold growth presents serious health risks so you need to act immediately.

Mold spores are everywhere and your wet carpet or drywall offers a good source of food and moisture for them to grow. There are different water categories based on where the damage came from and how it affected its surroundings.

  • Category 1 CLEAN :Water from a clean water source, like a fresh water line for a dishwasher. This water will not cause illness or any ill effects.
  • Category 2 GRAY:Water that may cause illness through contact. It may have bacteria in it.
  • Category 3 BLACK:Water that is highly contaminated. Contact can cause severe illness or death. Think sewage backup, an overflowing toilet, or storm waters.

 You have a 24 to 48 hour window from the time something gets wet until mold begins to grow. After that, mold will multiply rapidly. When mold growth starts, you will need the services of a professional mold and water remediation service to safely remove the mold. SERVPRO of Woodland Hills is here 24/7/365.

To prevent the mold growth, you will need to get your property dry within 72 hours. To do this, you can contact SERVPRO at any time.  We specializes in water damage restoration and emergency water extraction. We have the professional water removal equipment and drying equipment to get the job done as quickly as possible. We live by our slogan, "Like it never even happened."

Even though water may start out as Category 1, that doesn’t mean it will stay there.  Dirty carpet or soil can change your water damage Category to 2 or even Category 3.  Since standing water feeds bacteria, the longer the water is around, the worse the contamination of your property.

More contamination means that SERVPRO of  Woodland Hills restoration team will need to use more aggressive measures to clean your structure and property, and it might mean that soft furnishings, like your carpet, the carpet pad, or even furniture may have to be discarded for your safety.

Water damage can be expensive  but if you know the basics of what to do once it happens, you can prevent it from doing its worst.

The IICRC Develops The Standards For The Restoration Industry

The IICRC has been the driving force in establishing the main industry standards and reference guides for professional carpet cleaning, water damage restoration and mold remediation. These IICRC standards take years to develop and require the coordination of experts in the field: manufacturers, industry organizations, insurance professionals, training schools, contractors, and public health professionals.

Every five years, the standards are reviewed and updated. The water damage restoration field changes rapidly with advancements in technology and science, and therefore the standards must evolve to keep pace.

1. Watch your cooking- Stay in the kitchen if you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. Never allow young children around the stove or oven, especially if they are not closely attended.

2. Give space heaters space- Keep space heaters at least three feet from anything that can burn.

3. Smoke outside- If you must smoke inside, have sturdy, deep ashtray. Never smoke in bed.

4. Keep matches and lighters out of reach- Keep matches and lighters in high cabinets, preferably under a child lock.

5. Inspect electrical cords- Replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs or have loose connections.

6. Be careful when using candles - Keep candles at least one foot from anything that can burn. Blow them out before you leave the room or go to sleep.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Tips

1. Watch your cooking- Stay in the kitchen if you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. Never allow young children around the stove or oven, especially if they are not closely attended.

2. Give space heaters space- Keep space heaters at least three feet from anything that can burn.

3. Smoke outside- If you must smoke inside, have sturdy, deep ashtray. Never smoke in bed.

4. Keep matches and lighters out of reach- Keep matches and lighters in high cabinets, preferably under a child lock.

5. Inspect electrical cords- Replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs or have loose connections.

6. Be careful when using candles - Keep candles at least one foot from anything that can burn. Blow them out before you leave the room or go to sleep.

Does Your Woodland Hills, Tarzana, or Reseda Home Have A Mold Problem?

5/4/2017 (Permalink)

In Woodland Hills, Tarzana, or Reseda, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

 

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today – 818-882-4556 or 818-881-3636

Flu Season

Tips on preventing the Flu.

Strategies for prevention of the Flu:

According to the Center Of Disease Control and Prevention people may take action everyday to stay healthy in the wake of the flu outbreak.

* Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

* Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol based hand cleaners are also effective.

* Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.

Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

* Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.

* If you get sick, CDC recommends you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

Help prevent the spread of flu germs.

Homes and business can depend on their local SERVPRO franchise professional to clean and sanitize building materials, surfaces and contents following restoration industry standards, using professional cleaning products and EPA- registered cleaners and disinfectants.
