A Few Easy Tips in Keeping your Home Away from Water Damage 

Water damage can be costly so in order to protect yourself from any losses or claims:

  1. Clean Gutter and Downsprouts- At least clean your gutters from any blockage twice a year.  Unmanageable overflow may create puddles that could damage the foundation of your home.
  2. Maintenance of trees and vegetation- minimize landscaping near utility pipes of if necessary to remove trees and shrubs that have grown too much. Trees roots can wrap around your pips and break them.
  3. Check your appliances regularly- Check appliances regularly for leaks according to manufacturers directions.
  4. Know your Water Main- Find out the location of your main and shut if off if you leave for an extended amount of time. If no water goes in the house means no faucet drips that can lead to havoc.

Vandalism in a Rancho Palos Verdes store

The hole in the wall is how the intruder broke into the store

As many people may know SERVPRO offers tons of different services, this one right here was a special type of job that many people probably have no idea that we are capable of. 

This job was caused by an intruder who broke into and vandalized a local Rancho Palos Verdes jewelry store. Detectives had a finger-printing power all over the entire store to try and pick up fingerprints to determine who the intruder was.

Our technicians went in and HEPA vacuumed everything, not only the floors but the walls and ceilings as well. A HEPA filter should trap 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 microns or larger which makes it extremely powerful.

When SERVPRO of Palos Verdes left the store you would have never known what really went on inside, you would have never known that was just a crime scene and that means our job is finished.

Restoring a Harbor City business after sewage back up.

6/3/2019 (Permalink)

This specific loss was caused to a Harbor City business after their neighbors had a sewage backup. SERVPRO of Palos Verdes was there to help, as always. We started this job by extracting the water from the restaurant, hallway, and the bathroom. We also lifted the carpet and tore out the carpet pad, when doing that our certified technicians found mold.

It takes only minutes for water to spread and penetrate everything in site and mold begins to grow in as little as 48 hours. Luckily SERVPRO of Palos Verdes specializes in mold restoration and has all the proper equipment needed.

SERVPRO of Palos Verdes was able to complete this job and get the business back up and running in less then one week!

Essentially no job is to much for SERVPRO of Palos Verdes and we are eager to help.
