2020 has been such a roller coaster of events, but SERVPRO of Palos Verdes still has received exceptional reviews and below is one testimonial of our services.

"I just want you to know that from the very first time that I spoke to you, you were very patient, kind, understanding and answered all my questions. Putting my mind at ease! I know you were dealing with other customers, but you made me feel like as if I was the one and only customer you had. My husband and I evacuated Mansfield, Texas which is 6 hours away from my home.  I have had full trust in you being in my home with being so far away! Then, I met you and you were very  professional yet caring. Thank you for calling me, sending photos of the damage and assuring me that everything is going well in my home. Thank you for making what could've been a stressful time not stressful at all.  I thank God for placing you and your SERVPRO Crew in my life.  May God continue to bless you and your crew.  I hope to see you whenever we can come back and find a place to stay until our home is repaired."

Gratefully Yours,

Roy and Jacquetta F.

Packout Truck being loaded with packed items to take to onsite storage unit

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.

The Cleanup

What happens when there is a need for biohazard cleanup?

When we think of a home cleanup and restoration, we often think of fire or water damage.  Many individuals do not realize that it also encompasses biohazard cleanup, which can be quite dangerous when it comes to the pathogen threat.  Depending on the spill, like blood, remediation could be more than just a cleanup of using hospital grade cleaning agents.  Often, blood leaves a stain which means it might be3 possible that our technicians would have to remove and replace the affected section of wall, floor, or ceiling. 

Our trained professional are discreet and do not go into any details other than what is needed in order to het your home back to its original state.

SERVPRO of Palos Verdes is available 24/7 and if there are any questions can be reached at (424) 570-9900.
