SERVPRO researches available cleaners and equipment to give our customers the fastest and highest-quality results.

Since fires frequently start in kitchens, SERVPRO has strategies for dealing with the highly-adhesive protein-based soot and ash a grease and food fire deposits. The coating is thin and transparent but holds on like a varnish. We use solvents and agitation to loosen the residues.

Camarillo's Fire Damage Experts Talk About The Importance Of Prompt Action

If a fire ever starts inside your Camarillo house, the heat and the smoke coming from the blaze can both cause problems with your building materials and other items inside your home. If your fire damage does not get treated by a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO right after it occurs, the problems can get worse. When the smoke from a burn flows throughout a building, it leaves behind soils and soot residues when it comes into contact with cooler surfaces like your walls and ceilings. If soot gets left on surfaces inside your home, they can cause permanent issues to any affected contents or structural components. The burnt aromas created during a fire damage situation can also get worse over time if deodorization measures do not get taken immediately.

After our SERVPRO technicians receive your emergency call, we arrive at your residence, ready to begin work right away. We offer fast 24/7 service when called to assist you with your fire damage problems in Camarillo. We are available to answer your phone call any day of the week and late at night. Our crews are located nearby so that we can arrive at your house shortly after we receive the call and start assessing the situation. We come prepared with test cleaning kits so we can determine what can be saved through cleaning and restoration and which objects must be removed and replaced.

Before any inspecting or work begins, our team goes through your home and identifies any potential safety hazards. For example, sometimes burnt ceiling tiles or drywall can be hanging down and presenting a fall hazard. In this case, we can remove the items and make sure there is nothing loose to fall and hurt anyone.

After our crew deems the affected area safe, we begin inspecting your home for potential issues. As a result of the inspection, we compose an initial estimate containing the work we think will need to be done to return your house to its preloss state “Like it never even happened.” If you ever need prompt service from our highly trained team, call SERVPRO of Camarillo at (805) 484-5009 24 hours a day.

Fire Damage In Camarillo, SERVPRO Says We Cleanup Preventable Fire Damage Caused by Appliances The Result of a Lint Fire in Camarillo--Call SERVPRO for a Cleanup and Restoration

Improper Dryer Care Can Cause Fires in Your Camarillo Home

The appliances in your Camarillo home help to make life more comfortable, but taking care of them and using them correctly is critical to a longer life and safe operation. Dryers, for example, can become dangerous if they do not get used properly, and this can result in disasters like fires occurring in the residence. Understanding how these situations happen and what can occur to restore the damage is essential knowledge for the modern homeowner.

While you might not think of your dryer as a source for fire damage in your Camarillo home, this disaster can occur more readily than most homeowners believe. Often, these combustions occur when the excessive heat (often upwards of 500 degrees or more) ignites lint or other loose debris within and around the drum. Preventing this situation from occurring is often little more than ensuring that between uses, the lint trap gets cleared of any collected buildup and that your ventilation discharge hose remains clear of buildup as well. We also inspect and can clean out the venting system for the appliance to increase efficiency and reduce potential fires.

Often homeowners are unaware of the severity of cleaning out their lint filters often, and fire can result. When a disaster like this occurs, the effects can spread far beyond the laundry area of your home and affect multiple rooms and floors. Our SERVPRO professionals can arrive quickly to begin our thorough assessment of this damage to determine the best approach to restore it efficiently and cost-effectively.

From our initial mitigation work with packing out at-risk items and removing harmful particulates from the air inside your home to our licensed reconstruction contractors within our team that can rebuild overly damaged areas of your property, we offer a comprehensive package to our customers that make the restoration work as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Fires can begin from many sources, but appliances can easily ignite a blaze without the proper management and use. If you experience a disaster that damages your property, let our SERVPRO of Camarillo rapid response team help you make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (805) 484-5009.

How Our Team Uses Extraction And Drying Equipment During Our Water Restoration Process In Camarillo

1/1/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial How Our Team Uses Extraction And Drying Equipment During Our Water Restoration Process In Camarillo Call us at (805) 484-5009 when drains back up and washers overflow.

Commercial Mitigation Of Water Uses Extraction And Drying Methods To Restore Camarillo Laundromats

Patrons who wash clothing rarely intend on causing problems with the equipment in your Camarillo laundromat, but things do happen. Someone might forget to check the pockets in their child's clothing, allowing small papers to go through the wash cycle. These little pieces of papers and other forgotten things can end up leading to clogged drains after washing down through your equipment.

When backups in your laundromat's drain system cause flooding, commercial water damage services in Camarillo are designed for extracting and drying out the interior of your business. While water remains or the floor, your business contains too many risks to allow business to continue normally. SERVPRO can get things normalized for you quickly.

Extracting the water and getting your floors dried out also protects your investment from turning into a water damage statistic. Many types of flooring cannot withstand long-term exposure to heavy moisture and remain covered in a sheet of water can cause permanent problems. We can often save floors from this fate by getting not only the surface dry but by also pulling the moisture out from underneath the floor's surface.

Many times, the floor's tiny cracks permit water to enter but then retain that moisture, allowing damage to spread, weakening the floor covering. Our Injectidry equipment gets things to dry all the way through, from the surface to underlay, saving your floor. This means that you don't need to replace your floor to protect from slip and fall accidents.

When walls become saturated inside their cavities, we again use the Injectidry to make even and steady drying possible inside. The way we perform this helps keep microbes like mildew and mold from growing inside walls and behind equipment. We understand the risk of this and can treat areas more prone to developing such infestations to decrease the risk.

SERVPRO of Camarillo can help get a flooded laundromat's excess water cleaned up and dried out, making it safe for patrons and staff. Call us at (805) 484-5009 when drains back up and washers overflow.

Three Reasons Why SERVPRO is Needed to Remediate Mold in Your Camarillo Home

12/18/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Three Reasons Why SERVPRO is Needed to Remediate Mold in Your Camarillo Home Did you know that experts recommend that mold infested areas greater than 10 feet be professionally remediated for mold damage?

The Basics of Mold Remediation in a Home in Camarillo

When you discover that your home contains areas covered in mold, you might feel at first that you can control the invasion from countless microorganisms yourself. However, industry standards recommend that areas larger than ten square feet almost always require professional remediation.  

SERVPRO is Faster To Any Size Disaster and always ready to send out IICRC-certified mold remediation specialists to Camarillo when you call us. There are a few basic methods used during almost all of the mold remediation work we conduct. Reading about these procedures might explain why many experts who study microorganisms find value in professional mold remediation.  

Detecting Water in all the Wrong Places

Finding water that nourishes mold and other microbes is a crucial aspect of mold remediation. Our infrared cameras detect temperature fluctuations, helping us locate all of the sources that allowed mold to grow out of control. Once discovered, we close these sources off, making it impossible for microbes to get their next drink.  

Mold Spores, Particles, and Dust

We use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure that we do not inhale any mold spores and particles from scraped or blasted mold. This equipment consists of goggles, as well, to protect our eyes from anything that might become a tiny projectile. Other types of PPE include gloves, boots, and full suits, all designed to protect us from temporary hazards while remediating mold.  

Containment chambers enclose the area we work in and keep mold from spreading within your house. An essential component of these chambers includes the use of air scrubbers or air movers attached to flexible tubing that directs fast-moving air outside while drawing relatively clean air into the chamber. We use air scrubbers outside of the chamber, as well, to trap any mold spores already released by mold colonies before beginning our work.  

Cleanup and Prevention

We want to make sure that we do not leave any traces of remediated mold behind once we leave your home, and clean the area with vacuums that use HEPA filters. To prevent future situations, we treat specific areas in your home that might have an increased risk of developing mold damage again. We use liquid antimicrobials that dry quickly to a nontoxic and unnoticeable film that not only prevent future growth but trap and kill any remaining microbes in the area.  

SERVPRO of Camarillo would like to partner with you by providing mold remediation to your home's interior and making things just “Like it never even happened.” We always treat our customers' homes like we would want our residences handled. You can reach us for this and other mitigation needs by calling (805) 484-5009, 24/7, 365 days a year.
