Packout Packout done and taken to on site storage

While much of our efforts here at SERVPRO of Palos Verdes is geared to getting your home or business back up and running after any disaster, we also focus on the little things needed during the process. Often, customers do not think of where my belongings are going to go during water mitigation after a pipe burst or how they might get that smoke smell out of their valuable paintings after a fire. Our trained and professional technicians are equipped to help in every aspect of the restoration process to make sure it is like the disaster never even happened.

We offer onsite storage for any belongings that may need to be stored during the job and even box it up for you while taking inventory of every item. We transport your belongings to and from our storage facility to make everything as easy as possible for you during such an already difficult time.

When your belongings need that extra care like throw rugs that might have been soaked or paintings that smell of smoke, we bring them to our facility to care for them in the proper and careful way. We want to make sure they are back to the state they were in before the disaster happened.

Summer Time Fun

9/1/2020 (Permalink)

Summer is here!

Summertime in California can be an exciting time, even during a pandemic we are managing to still enjoy the little things we used to. Swimming, Barbecues, and bonfires are amongst the best pastimes enjoyed here in SoCal. While that all seems quite fun, it is important to remember that being cautious is still part of that fun. When participating in such activities like a backyard bonfire or BBQ remember these few tips to ensure a safe and memorable experience:

-Make sure the fire pit is far enough from any home dwelling in an open area (same for the BBQ)

- Make sure only a knowledgeable adult is tending the fire or BBQ

-Do not overexert the fire more than is needed keeping the pile at 5’x5’ to keep the flames containable

- Make sure to have some water source nearby in case the fire gets out of hand

- Do not throw anything into the fire such as aerosols, canisters, or anything that contains foam or paint

- Make sure the wood you are using is dry and seasoned with no coating or anything attached to it

- When done with the bonfire make sure to douse with water and turnover the charred material with a metal shovel

While summer memories are usually great, sometimes there are unexpected situations. Here at SERVPRO of Palos Verdes our trained and professional technicians are equipped to help you during those summertime mishaps.  We want to make sure we get you and your loved ones back at it and having fun as quickly as possible after any kind of unplanned home disaster.
