Lakeport water damage-how it can affect your business

Commercial Lakeport water damage-how it can affect your business The toilet in this facility backed up. After sanitizing the area and removing the debris, we made sure the areas became dry!

While many people know we deal with residential water, fire or mold damage, many don't know we also mitigate damage to a business. Often, we see  a board up may be required due to a fire or vandalism, or both. But, water damage is still the most common damage we see. This particular water damage had the potential to shut down the business for several days; however, we swooped in and got cleanup services started right away. 
If water sits for too long after a mishap, it can get under floors and furniture. It can also crawl up walls. When these incidences occur, cleaning up after water damage becomes more difficult. For this reason, we insist on being available at any time to deal with the damage right away.

Rebuild on its way for Lake County

After the devastation of the Valley Fire, Lake County was left in what looked like shambles. However, due to the generosity of the community and hard work of the fire departments, utility companies, health inspectors, and fundraisers, Lake County will be back on its feet in no time. Middletown home and business repairs are on the rise! The Clayton Fire had similar results, but not as chronic. A lot of businesses are lost, which means revenue and products need to be replaced as soon as possible. We want to be there to help as much as possible so the community doesn't fall away and become deserted. 

What do you need?

There are many services available for those affected by the Clayton and Valley Fires. Restoration work may be on the bottom of many people's lists. However, most people don't realize that a lot of restoration work is paid by their homeowners insurance. Smoke damage has been the most common need for restoration work. Some homes were affected by flames, either partially or entirely; we've seen it all. 

How does the process work?

Give us a call, we will take some basic information such as your address and phone number, and extent of the damage, as well as any contact information for your insurance company. We work with all major insurance carriers, as well as smaller ones, and can provide a free estimate for you. We understand this process is emotional, and we will be there for you every step of the way and we communicate closely with your insurance company.

Let us help you get your life back on track!

Clearlake Commercial Fire Cleanup

Big Fire, Big Company? Not Necessarily

Although many businesses may want a bigger company to deal with fire damage, bigger doesn't always mean better. They may have a lot of people, but can the people work as a team? They may have a lot of pieces of equipment, but are those pieces up to par? Do they work for what they're designed to do? These are all important questions to ask when deciding who should deal with Clearlake commercial fire cleanup.

SERVPRO is not just one company, it's a big team!

While we know we can handle large losses with our crew of at least 30 people, there may be fire losses that happen that require more manpower. We don't want to bring in just anyone; we would want those who have the SERVPRO methods down. Those methods include swift, fast, and consistent team work. We respond right away after we get a call about a loss, and we appear on site the same day if it's an emergency. We don't want you to wait until Monday!

Lower Lake High School smoke damage

12/15/2017 (Permalink)

We did some work after the results of the Clayton Fire during this summer of 2016. Many buildings, mostly commercial, were affected. We called on all three of our franchises (Lake, Mendocino, Sonoma NE) to work together so the students could start school on time.

We also worked with insurance adjusters, water and smoke damaged homes, and training new temporary employees. This summer kept us busy with mostly water and fire damage-the score was even, but we never like to see entire communities up in flames. The Lower Lake High School was very happy to have us on board and even thanked us, along with other businesses, because we offered them so much support.

We care deeply about our communities, and want them to thrive. We are Lake County STRONG!

Commercial cleanup in Lake County

We have always been able to handle large losses with the help of a big, dedicated team. But, a lot of companies don't realize that SERVPRO of Lake County can handle things like Kelseyville commercial water cleanup. Pipes break even in buildings that are consistently maintained. To have a pipe break during business hours is horrifying to a business owner or corporation. They can lose business, products, and customers.

50% of water or fire damaged businesses don't reopen

We don't like this statistic, so we do everything we do to fight it. A loss of a business is a loss to families who need the income, as well as the community who appreciates what the business has to offer. 

We are not just a 2 man business, we can handle large commercial losses, and understand the way insurance works, so the loss can be handled properly.

Government agencies, not just stores

We've been landing a lot of jobs with our local government agencies, libraries, and schools! Although we are a small franchise, we are capable of great things. We still love to tell the story about the big Laytonville flood in 2012. The entire high school flooded, but was dried out by SERVPRO in 23 days! The school was able to open up just in time for classes after the winter break.

Where can SERVPRO provide service?

Basically, any area that is a building with furniture, valuables, and materials can be cleaned and treated by SERVPRO. We are constantly supporting our local businesses with our cleanup services. Although some places have a protocol set in place on what to do when a fire or water loss happens, there are often miscommunication or confusion, or the company that was supposed to come start work didn't get in touch with the client. We are happy to report we are right down the road, and ready for anything!

Home and business repair

SERVPRO of Lake County has a lot of talented individuals at its disposal. We have plumbers, electricians, former construction employees, natural born leaders, and young people just looking to get started with a physically demanding job! 

Home and business repair projects in Lake County

Lake County home repair isn't easy, and that's why we are here. We have a collective group of individuals that work as a team to get everything done. We have a production, office, and marketing team that have to work together; otherwise, we may not be as successful as we are at repairing homes that have been affected by fire or water damage. 

How we work together

Our production company communicates with our office when they receive a job, as well as when a job has finished. This way, we can put together the estimate and other paperwork, and send it to the insurance. Our marketing office also communicates with production and the office on any new events happening, or we brainstorm ways to reach out to the community when natural disasters occur, such as wildfires. When we get large commercial jobs, we get a bigger crew together (if needed), and make sure everyone has been trained properly. Commercial jobs are scrutinized much more closely because of public health issues. 

We do these things so we can build the best team possible, and to deal with disasters that no one else can, or will, do. "Like it never even happened." is only with us!

Willits Commercial Cleaning

10/11/2016 (Permalink)

Running a business is a lot of hard work, with licensing, getting your products, paying employees, dealing with customer complaints, the trends and fads of the market, and all the paperwork! The LAST thing you need is to worry about fire, water, mold, or biohazards affecting the way you run things. You have a family to support, and customers to serve.

Services for commercial jobs

We offer the same services for commercial businesses as we do for residential. Willits commercial cleaning is no exception. We offer carpet cleaning, biohazard removal, vandalism repair, dry outs, contents cleaning, upholstery repair, and ozone cleaning. If a new situation presents itself, we find new ways to assist or get trained in new techniques. We are universal with cleanup and restoration, and will add more to our plate if it means we can serve our community.

If you're not sure about a service we can provide, give us a call. Even if we aren't able to assist, we can refer you to someone who can. We want to be helpful in every way possible!
