How restoration companies like SERVPRO can help your property.

10/3/2022 (Permalink)

Whether you have suffered water or fire damage, you need to repair that damage as quickly as possible. You’ve likely heard people tell you about Newport Beach restoration companies, suggesting various names and making recommendations. Before you hire anyone, you need to know more about the companies and how they can help restore your home. Here’s what restoration companies can do for you.

Remove the Damage as Quickly as Possible

Restoration companies in Newport Beach have the benefit of knowledge and equipment. They have the skills needed to remove the damage from your home as quickly as possible. This increases the chances of repairing more than having to replace it all.

They can get rid of flood water, remove smoke damage and clean up the home fully. They will have the right tools to get rid of all moisture and check just how deep the damage has gone.

Of course, there’s also power in numbers. Restoration companies will give you a team of employees to clear the damage in the shortest time possible. This is essential if you want to restore fully.

Manage the Growth of Mold

Water damage is excruciating for the home. Any moisture left behind can lead to the growth of mold, putting your family’s health at risk. Newport Beach restoration companies will help to manage the growth of the mold in the home. They’ll take steps to prevent mold spores even forming as much as possible. When something is missed, they will be able to tackle the mold and get rid of it all, so it doesn’t come back.

This isn’t just about cleaning, but getting the right type of cleanser. The companies have the right tools and industrial-grade strength cleaners to make sure the mold is removed entirely.

Offer Tips to Avoid Damage in the Future

You don’t just get help restoring your property. Restoration companies in Newport Beach can also help you avoid the damage in the future. This is especially the case with water damage. The team that comes to help will have skilled and experienced staff members, who understand more about how water damage occurs.

The team will be able to figure out why the damage occurred. While there are some that you can’t prevent at all (like flooding outside), you can take action to minimize the threat and the employees will be able to help with that. Then there are others that you can prevent completely, such as burst pipes and bad plumbing.

Save Money in the Long Term

Many people want to tackle the damage in the home themselves to save money. That’s understandable, but you can end up shelling out far more in the long term. If you get the cleanup wrong, you can end up spending more replacing items unnecessarily. Hiring a restoration company can be covered through your home insurance, so you don’t have to pay out. SERVPRO teams are fully trained in all aspects mentioned above.  Give SERVPRO of Newport Beach a call for a consultation.

10/3/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Newport Beach is one of the most well-known companies for fire and water damage restoration. Whether you’ve suffered an accidental fire, faced storm damage, or had a leak in the bathroom, there are services that will suit your need. But the services will do far more than just fix and restore the damage.

Not sure if this is the firm for your needs? Here are four ways SERVPRO of Newport Beach will help you.

Peace of Mind

The major benefit is the peace of mind. If you tried to do the restoration work yourself, you’d struggle. It’s a stressful time, trying to make sure everything is dried out quickly, the structures are safe, and you get to everywhere the damage could be.

The SERVPRO team will be fully experienced. Those who come out to you will know where to look for hidden damage and make sure everything is cleaned up quickly. You don’t have to worry about the what ifs in the future.

Solve the Tricky Problems

There is always something that comes up when disaster strikes. Whether it’s an unknown section of water damage in the walls or a room that suffered smoke damage because of the air filters, you need to make some tough decisions and solve the tricky problems. But why do that on your own?

The SERVPRO of Newport Beach team will have the skills to be able to deal with the problems quickly and efficiently. This can help to prevent spreading the problem further and will help you gain that extra peace of mind.

Find the Source

Just patching up the damage isn’t an option. While you’ve fixed the current issue, you haven’t prevented it from happening again. This is where skilled people from SERVPRO will help.

They understand more about the reason behind the problem. If you have a leak that you can’t find, there are high chances that the professionals will. So, instead of constantly patching up the damage, you’ll get complete restoration work that will include fixing the actual issue.

Of course, this is much harder if the damage was from a storm, which leads us to the next benefit.

Solutions to Prevent the Issue

There’s nothing worse than constantly repairing damage that you feel you can’t do anything about. This is often the case when it comes to storm damage. You take time to pre-empt the damage by lifting carpets. But what if you could prevent the damage completely?

SERVPRO of Newport Beach will look at why the storms cause so much damage. Where are the weaknesses in your home that lead to water damage? Why do you end up with so much flooding? You can patch up these issues and prevent issues in the long term. You’ll not only get peace of mind, but you’ll save a fortune in the future.

It’s time to consider hiring the team at SERVPRO of Newport Beach. We respond all over Orange County.  They’ll do more than just patch up a job quickly. You get peace of mind now and way into the future.

Do you really need a company like SERVPRO for your water damage remediation?

11/9/2021 (Permalink)

When you’ve suffered flooding in your home, you’ll need to take steps to repair and restore the damage. Whether it’s sanitary, unsanitary, or black water, hiring a company like SERVPRO of Newport Beach could be the best thing you do. Here are three reasons why you need to consider hiring a company to help with water damage restoration.

They’re Available for Emergencies

Flooding doesn’t happen Monday to Friday, 9-5. You can be affected on weekends, during holiday weekends, and in the middle of the night. Burst pipes, stormy weather, and local sewage problems can all lead to flooding in a home. While you could possibly handle some of it yourself, do you really have the time and manpower when friends and family members are away?

SERVPRO of Newport Beach offers one of the biggest benefits by being around for all types of emergencies. There is someone available 24/7. It doesn’t matter if your Christmas has been ruined by local flooding or your home has suffered a basement flood from a burst pipe in the middle of Thanksgiving. Someone can help to mitigate the stress, so you can focus on making sure everyone else is safe.

Highly Trained in Restoration

There’s nothing worse than thinking you’ve manage to restore everything and then months later finding black mold growing everywhere. This is common when you do your own water damage restoration, because you don’t have all the skills for restoration. You don’t know what can be repaired or how quickly you need to act.

SERVPRO of Newport Beach employees do understand this. Getting a professional company means you have trained members of staff, who will know when to restore and when to throw away. They know how deep into the home the water damage can be and how important it is to clear things up quickly. They’ll understand the importance of cleaning up all water damage to avoid mold, and help you look out for any early warning signs of future problems just in case.

After the restoration, they can also stick around to help with the repair and cleaning. They’ll make sure your home is ready for habitation again and you have no reminders of problems.

Prevent a Business Losing Revenue

When you’ve had water damage in a business, you’ll have the struggle of losing revenue while you make repairs. Your business insurance may not have even covered you for this, especially if your place of business is rented and covered by a landlord or been from a natural disaster. So, you need to find a way to minimize the revenue loss, which is where SERVPRO of Newport Beach is perfect.

The trained professionals understand your business needs. Employees will work hard not just to restore the building but also make sure your place of business is ready for customers as soon as possible.

The next time you think you can save money on water damage restoration, think again. SERVPRO of Newport Beach is, by far, the best investment you could ever make.

Tips how to avoid toxic mold growth on your property

11/9/2021 (Permalink)

Black mold is the most dangerous type of all mold, technically called stachybotrys. The best way to deal with Newport Beach black mold is to prevent it from occurring altogether. Here are the top tips to prevent it from it growing in your home.

Keep Your Home Dry Everywhere

The best tip is to keep your home dry. This can sound obvious, but you can find that it’s not so easy. The bathroom and kitchen are two of the most humid places in the home and you can easily miss some the moisture growing. Take steps to protect every room in the home.

Have extractor fans in both kitchen and bathroom. You can also use dehumidifiers in the home, which will suck out the moisture and keep your home dry and safe. Add dehumidifiers into basements, as they are another area that commonly suffer from moisture without realizing.

If your basement has a history of flooding, take steps to prevent this from happening. You may need to change your landscape outside, or you may need to implement methods to soak up the water before it gets into your walls and flooring. A professional will be able to help with this.

Remove Anything Already Tainted

If you find black mold in Newport Beach homes, you need to act as quickly as possible. The best thing to do is remove anything from the home already tainted. Mold spores will stick around and multiply around the rest of your belongings. Removing items from the home is the only guaranteed way to get rid of it all yourself.

When you want to keep belongings, you’ll need to hire a professional. Experts will know the best cleaning products to use to make sure all the spores are removed to keep the whole family safe. The professional mold removers will also help determine if something isn’t salvageable, such as anything with old wood or porous material.

Prevent Water Flowing to Your Home

Black mold in Newport Beach is especially common after outside water has made its way into the home. You need to do everything you can to prevent the water flowing into your home.

This can mean changing your landscape of your lawn and garden. Consider changing the leveling, so the water is forced to run down towards the street and away from your home. Don’t remove too much greenery, giving the ground a chance to soak up water before it runs to your home.

While you can’t prevent all flooding, you can make an effort to keep the flooding as minimal as possible. Get a landscaper and professional out to help determine the best way to keep your home safe from water damage and future mold problems.

Black mold in Newport Beach is dangerous. You’ll need to take steps to protect everywhere you can to prevent the mold from growing. With the tips above, you can keep black mold at bay and treat any moisture quickly to keep the family safe.  

If you find anything suspect you want to call the team at SERVPRO of Newport Beach.  We have the train professionals to care for your remediation needs.

Why hire SERVPRO to handle your water and fire damage needs?

10/26/2021 (Permalink)

When you initially suffer smoke or water damage, you’ll worry about the cost of the cleanup. Many of us have the idea of dealing with as much as we can alone. If we do it ourselves, we’ll save money, right? Well, water and fire damage cleanup are two areas you may want to hire professionals like SERVPRO from the very beginning.

While there is the issue of the cost outlay to begin, you’ll gain far more from your investment in the long run. In fact, making this decision could help you save more money. Here’s why you should hire water or fire damage cleanup professionals.

Get It Right the First Time

After water or fire damage, there’s a short amount of time to get everything cleaned up. Water will cause mold growth within 24-48 hours, so you only have a short amount of time to get everything dry. Is this really going to be a possibility?

It doesn’t matter what type of water damage has happened. Whether it’s a flooded bath, a burst pipe, or even flood water, you’ve got little time and you run the risk of causing more damage by doing it yourself. Hiring professionals from a company like SERVPRO will help you deal with everything right away.

Professionals have the right equipment to make sure everything possible is dried in the right amount of time. You’re paying for this equipment and they will certainly put it all to use.

More Time to Deal With Other Aspects

You don’t just have the cleanup to deal with. There are insurance companies to talk to, families to look after, and even redecorating decisions to make. You need the time to do everything and there are only so many hours in the day. Plus, the cleanup is where you need to spend your immediate attention.

When you hire professionals from SERVPRO, you get the benefit of extra time. You can deal with the other important aspects of the cleanup and allow the professionals to deal with the hassle of the cleanup. There are going to be times you’ll need to make an input but for the most part, you’ll be left alone to talk to insurance companies and spend time with your family.

Less Stress During the Cleanup

There’s so much to think about when it comes to fire and water damage cleanup. You don’t want to deal with the hassle of it all. It just becomes stressful and you can get to a breaking point.

Instead of handling it all yourself, professionals will be able to take on the stress. They’ve already got the experience, so will know the best ways to cleanup after whatever damage it is you’re facing. You can appreciate the fact that your family is safe from a fire. And if something bad did happen, you have the ability to deal with that instead of the stress of the cleanup at the same time.

When dealing with fire and water damage cleanup, don’t try to handle it all yourself. You’ll probably end up spending more money than hiring professionals like SERVPRO to deal with it all.
