Commercial Clean up
This retail store was affected by the recent back to back storms that hit Southern California. The water leaked into the ceiling and affected a large portion of it inside the showcase area. The store owner was concerned with how much down time it would take to restore their property, as they would be out of business during that time period. However, our emergency service crew was able to complete the job in only 5 days. SERVPRO strives to provide all of our customers with high quality service every time! We care about our clients and work endlessly to get your business back up and running as soon as physically possible. Our Team of experts will work professionally and efficiently day and night to make it "Like it never even happened."
SERVPRO’s connection to local businesses is the basis of our community, and we are always there for the members of our community. A perfect example is a recent job we had with a local H&R Block. The local business called us and informed us that their building had sustained water damage from a faulty appliance in their office. We quickly came out to inspect the damage and then promptly began work immediately after the inspection with permission of the owner. We did this in such a way where the business could still operate and service their customers, since we know that our clients want as little disruptions to their life and business as possible. This example of our service to our local businesses is the reason we consider ourselves an exemplary service company, because we provide the best service to the best people.

Restoring Your Business After a Flood
When a Disaster Hits your Business call SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz at 323-667-3100
Floods can be miserable ordeals, even with extensive preparation. They can spring up with little to no warning and saddle you with the responsibility of a lengthy, expensive restoration period. Your business could be underwater in a flash, and you could be faced with mounting repair bills and extended interruption to your business. But floods can also be regenerative. Large-scale damage to your business is an opportunity to rebuild and minimize potential damage and disruption that could be caused by future floods. If your business has sustained flood damage, do not panic. Think of it as a chance to fortify your business against future flood damage rather than nothing but a ruinous misfortune.
All in all, it is important to remember that water damage to commercial locations can be excessively harmful because it can quickly not only damage the building but also the contents inside. Even minor water damage can impact a business’s productivity. Depending on the magnitude of water damage, the water must be removed, the infiltrated areas cleared, and an inventory of losses drawn out. To minimize the extent of the leak, contact SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz. With our professional expertise our SERVPRO team can look after all your water damage restoration needs. We possess the essential manpower and technology to correct problems associated with water damage on commercial and business properties.

See How SERVPRO Can Help with Commercial Fire Damage
If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment with us, contact us at (323) 667-3100
Commercial fire damage can cause tremendous problems for your business. Though it may start relatively small, all types of fire damage carry hidden consequences, and if you are not careful, you may end up causing significant damage to your property. Fortunately, however, you can contact reliable experts to help you get your damage under control. Being aware of the repair process can help you understand what to tell the experts when it's time to take care of the damage.
Before the professionals can begin looking into any repair procedures; they will arrive at your property and take a look at the area to determine what the damage is like. This inspection is usually thorough, but the experts may need to take their time in particularly extensive instances of wear and tear. After the inspection, the specialists begin drawing up their plans. You can ask them about the necessary procedures, and they will be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have about the repair process.
After agreeing upon the procedures and schedules, the experts will prepare their equipment and come to your property at a later time. When they arrive, they will close off the area and make all the necessary preparations to begin the cleaning. The initial cleaning is relatively quick and paves the way for future procedures. Professionals will take care of surface damage by removing burnt sections and damaged equipment. It is strongly recommended for homeowners to clean up the area ahead of time to speed up the process for the professionals.
Often, the most difficult part of any cleanup procedure is taking care of the scent in the area. Burnt odors may linger in the air, causing damage to the property's surface on a microscopic level. No matter the extent of the damage, experts will take care of the scent by utilizing advanced cleaning technology. They permanently remove the presence of all odors in the area, making sure that there is no moisture damage around the sections of the property that did not sustain direct fire damage.
Final Restoration Steps
Once the odors are taken care of and the surrounding area appears clean, the professional’s then move on to the last step in addressing commercial fire damage. They survey the area and make sure that they did not miss any details. If there is serious structural damage to the property, the professionals may make the necessary repairs themselves or provide you with the contact information of experts who can help. The specialists take their time to address all details because lingering smoke and fire damage may result in future problems.
SERVPRO in Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz is a locally owned business, and our experts always strive to provide our customers with efficient work and quality service. No matter the extent of the fire damage your property has suffered, we are ready to work with you and do our best to restore your area back to its desired state.
You Need the Best Results When Your Business Experiences Commercial Water Damage
Water Damage to your business? Call SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz at (323) 667-3100 any time, day or night, 365 days a year.
We know that your main concern is getting your business operations back to normal as soon as possible after any catastrophe, but commercial water damage is much more complex than most problems experienced by businesses today. Categories of water can quickly change from non-hazardous to very dangerous quickly. Water can spread in almost any direction, including up if conditions are right, and remaining flood waters can instantaneously ruin some certain products with even minute amounts.
Commercial water damage presents unique challenges because of the environment involved. From warehouses storing agricultural products to leather processing plants, inventory protection, and worker safety is both important to any business. Different types of water can cause damage, and even the cleanest water, category 1, can turn into the worst, category 3 when contaminants are present. These can happen when clean water is mixed or combined with another source of category 3 water, even if it is not causing any damage by itself (such as sewer water) or when bags of previously dry substances such as fertilizers or pesticides become saturated, and their contents leach into the water.
The damage to your inventory can also rapidly multiply. When products at the bottom of a stack can be a conduit for water by wicking it upwards toward other product that has not been damaged, it’s common sense to get those products on top removed to a safer location. We have team members who can provide this service while our technicians work in other areas, protecting your business from increased inventory loss.
Stacked bags of concrete and other dry products that are designed to be mixed with water, oil, or other liquid just prior to use may seem to be in saleable condition until they are examined on their undersides where water has accumulated. These ruined items need to be removed and accounted for on inventory loss sheets. For insurance purposes, all products need to be re-inventoried and noted as to their condition before the conclusion of our restoration work.
After you've made the initial call to us, we can begin the restoration process. Returning your business to normal operations is important, and we understand the complexities involved in keeping your employees safe while protecting your business's bottom line.

Your Business Needs to Look and Smell Inviting after Fire Damage Restoration
SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz helps commercial buildings get back in business after a disaster
Presentation is important for any business, and doubly so in the service sector. If you own or manage a store or restaurant, your customers will likely be discouraged or even scared off by obvious signs of damage and visual blemishes on your property. SERVPRO knows first-hand that some of the most thorough visual damages to a building can come from fires, whether through the burn itself or any associated events and factors. These blemishes and issues are commonly cleaned up by our restoration teams, to ensure that once a company's doors get back open, they stay open.
Burns and char easily rank among the most visible types of commercial fire damage immediately giving away to any observer the fact that a fire has burned in the area. Blackened or darkened materials, even if they have no other major damage beyond discoloration, can still be resource and time-intensive to cover up, often requiring a wide cleaning and repainting job to make sure colors blend well and no burn material remains.
Smoke and Ash
smoke and ash leave a profound impact on a building, to both the sight and smell of anyone nearby. Smoke is a pervasive scent and easily noticeable in most cases, but can also leave behind a great deal of smearing and coat surfaces. Depending on the type of smoke and conditions of this fire, this may be a relatively easy cleanup job, or a more thorough repainting may be in order.
SERVPRO can also help to restore mild structural damage caused by a fire, rebuilding walls, floors, supports, and other elements of a building if they have been burned through or collapsed on. We always aim to restore before replacing, and in this way can potentially save you thousands in reconstruction costs where they are not necessary.
SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz helps businesses to get back on track after a disaster. Give us a call at 323-667-3100.
