Extracting Water SERVPRO Technician Extracting Water

Water damage can take place at home, at work and even at school. One has to be prepared for any type of situation and SERVPRO of Claremont/Montclair is equipped to handle any job. We are always thrilled to help in our local communtiy so when we got the call about a water damage at Claremont High we were there ASAP.

One gray and rainy day turned into a big mess for the high school. Water had made its way into classrooms and hallways so we had to act fast.

Within minutes water can quickly spread onto the property and destroy anything in its path. It can be absorbed into the walls, floors and ceilings so our main priorty is always to extract water and begin drying immediately. 

If water damage is not treated properly mold and mildew can occur. Our team was able to quickly dry and remove the carpet so that we could avoid those issues.

Two technicians shoveling up ash and debris from a recent fire. Our professionals have year of experience restoring fire damage in commercial buildings.

It can be overwhelming when you see all the blood, sweat and tears you put into your business go up in flames. It was the same for this City of Industry warehouse. Not only did the furniture in this warehouse get damaged from the flames, but so did the loading dock of the building. Our team new their hands were full but knew just what to do. They suited up in their PPE suits and got to work. They did tasks like minor demolition (to knock down the rest of the burned panels), soot and ash cleanup.

The owner of this furniture company was thrilled of the job we did for him. If you have experienced fire damage of any kind, do not hesitate to reach out to us at 909-399-9057.  

Running Water Causing Damage in this Lawyer's Office

4/6/2020 (Permalink)

A technician pulling out the carpet padding from an office. Our water damage technicians pulling out carpet and padding from this lawyer’s office to get all the wet un-salvageable material out.

When small amounts of water began to leak through the carpet, this law firm began to get suspicious. As the slow leak continued throughout the day, the staff began to really panic as all the towels in the office would not hold it down. By the time SERVPRO of Claremont / Montclair got to the scene, the flood had continued to two more offices.

Our water technicians knew what to do. The water seeped very deep into the carpet including the carpet pad. Unfortunately, we could not save it since the water was sitting for about 24 hours before we were called in. The good news is that carpet and padding is very inexpensive and was a breeze to handle. After pulling out wet carpet, padding, extracting excess water and drying the affected rooms for 4 days, this lawyer’s office was as good as new.

An Unrelaxing Day at the Spa

6/19/2019 (Permalink)

After placing air movers and a dehumidifier in this spa, we saved the hardwood floor and drywall and prevented mold from growing.

When we think of the spa, we think of facials, manicures and the pedicures that relax us and makes us say ah! This was not the case when we received an emergency call from an Upland, California spa. In the wee hours of the morning and before they opened, our technicians could already tell that the hardwood flooring towards the back of the shop was beginning to buckle. In fact, ½ foot of the wall was beginning to swell from the bottom up. Our team immediately placed air movers and a dehumidifier near the areas that detected moisture.

The spa owner received a call from a neighboring business saying that there was water dripping from out of the front door. When the owner got to her place of business, the water heater had been leaking and there was water everywhere. She remembered us from a business card her friend gave to her and she gave us a call right away. It was great that she did because it saved her thousands of dollars in the long run.

If she had not called us when she did, she would have more than likely had mold beginning to grow. Good call! Avoiding more damage to your place of business or commercial building will always give you an “ah” of relief!  

Bringing Down Moldy Insulation in an Ontario Warehouse

5/14/2019 (Permalink)

A shot of our remediation specialist cleaning up debris from the molded insulation.

When we first scoped out the 12,000 square foot warehouse for mold, we began thinking of the strategies we would use to remove it from the ceiling. The warehouse had a roof leak that was never discovered until it was too late. The leak had absorbed the insulation in the ceiling, which caused the mold to grow throughout the entire area. After a detailed overview of the tasks that needed to get this commercial building back to its original state, we got to work fast (since mold can grow from moisture within 24-48 hours).

We began the mold remediation process by first gearing up in our PPE suits. From head to toe, our remediation technicians are covered to protect them from any mold spores floating in the air. These mold spores will float in the air once the mold is disturbed. We brought in a cherry picker to help us bring down the insulation throughout the roof. At the end of this challenging job, all affected insulation and mold was removed. After the owner of the building did a walk through with us, he was very pleased with the work we did.

If you are experiencing a mold problem, do not hesitate to give us a call at 909-399-9057 to schedule an inspection.       

Saving an Ontario Commercial Warehouse from Water Damage

4/30/2019 (Permalink)

Our technician extracting water from the carpet of a commercial warehouse. The faster we extract the water, the faster we restore.

When we arrived at the commercial warehouse building in Ontario, California, the entire carpet was saturated with water. Employees on the graveyard shift were trying to grab a product from a high level with a fork lift, but accidentally hit a water sprinkler and it went off. Our water technicians immediately got to work to try and save as much of the carpet as possible. We used our water extraction wands to suck out all standing water that soaked the flooring and used air movers to dry it all until it was dry completely. 

The owners of the building called us immediately, which was a great thing on there end. Since we were called as early as possible, we were able to save the entire commercial carpet without removing the padding under it and ripping it out. The owner was so happy to hear that we restored as much as possible and they actually saved a lot of money. When an emergency strikes, do not wait on it and give us a call at 909-399-9057. We can help your commercial warehouse building too day or night.

An employee accidently set the sprinkler system off, flooding this distribution center and damaging goods.

When the sprinklers go off accidently in a 35,000 square foot distribution center in Ontario, California, the situation can be very worrisome and stressful.
