Why SERVPRO Look Here for Property Cleanup and Restoration in Los Gatos! Los Gatos Restoration Services Are Underway with SERVPRO to the Rescue

Why Property Owners in Los Gatos Trust SERVPRO for Restoration Services

You can plan for accidents and take preventative measures to protect your Los Gatos property from water, fire, mold, storm, or other damage. However, the best-laid plans have a way of getting derailed by the unexpected. When disasters happen whether the cause was from a busted pipe under the bathroom sink, flash fire in the kitchen from an overheated pan or lack of ventilation in an attic bringing mold into your residential or commercial property, you need restoration services that handle any type of loss.

Water damage to a Los Gatos property needs to be addressed as quickly as possible to avoid costly future issues such as mold.  The longer building materials and home contents remain exposed to excessive moisture before water removal from a Los Gatos home, the more potential for loss.  Mopping and blotting with towels works to remove water from the surface, but once it has migrated behind areas in a room such as baseboards or subflooring, the situation needs professional water cleanup in your Los Gatos home. 

SERVPRO employees hold certifications (WRT) in several areas of the restoration sciences, including Water Removal Technicians, which gives them working knowledge of water extraction techniques for deeply embedded moisture. We use powerful air movers that do not merely blow air on wet areas in a property. The high-velocity airflow works to pull the absorbed moisture to the surface where our dehumidification equipment captures and ports it away. This deep-drying of both structure and contents inhibits the potential for mold or foul odors to become a problem later.

When fire damage hits a Los Gatos property, it leaves different levels of challenges for our technicians to address. Charred building materials and contents contribute nothing but odor, so SERVPRO technicians perform fire debris removal in Los Gatos homes using controlled demolition techniques to leave as much of the property intact as possible for reconstruction after the completion of restoration services. 

Smoke damage in a Los Gatos residence is both unpleasant and unhealthy to live around, our proprietary methods for smoke damage and soot removal return the home into a clean place where it is safe to live.

Even a small fire in a Los Gatos kitchen often requires fire odor removal applications. SERVPRO technicians receive certifications in Odor Control (OCT) and learn how to neutralize odor-causing molecules, not only cover them. When hot air expands during a fire, it drives soot into porous objects resulting in the need for odor neutralization techniques such as thermal fogging to eradicate foul odors. 

Mold spores exist indoors and outdoors, and therefore mold removal for a Los Gatos commercial or residential property is a misstatement. Our team can reduce the effects down to near-zero. The problem occurs when mold spores find an area of excessive moisture, ambient temperatures, and food such as the wood framework in your attic leads to the establishment of colonies which then spread until remediated.

The first sign that leads many Los Gatos homeowners to mold damage discovery comes from a musty smell that will not dissipate. Professional mold remediation is crucial as improper cleaning and removal techniques quickly spread mold spores. Our technicians are experienced and certified from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in the remediation of mold (AMRT) and containment methods to inhibit the spread of airborne spores to other areas of the property currently unaffected.  The specialized training SERVPRO technicians receive includes methods of mold colony abatement such as soda blasting which removes dried mold colonies with little surface abrasion.

For Los Gatos property owners, storm damage is the root cause of many secondary damages to both residential and commercial properties. Inadequate flood water removal or drying of an affected property leaves it open for mold growth and weakening of building materials. SERVPRO has portable pumps to quickly extracted small water intrusion as well as truck-mounted dehumidifiers and pumps to handle large-scale water loss. When our technicians arrive onsite, we take preventative measures such as tarping a damaged roof or packing out possessions to our facility for safe storage or restoration as needed. 

Why SERVPRO? We know you have choices when it comes to restoration services in Los Gatos. SERVPRO technicians hold many certifications earned through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) This organization is widely regarded as the gold standard for best practices and techniques in the cleaning and restoration industry. Because our technicians are local, we are members of the same community as you, and we know unique nuances that apply to Los Gatos such as humidity levels when calculating drying goals during water damage cleanup or mold remediation and restoration services needed after an earthquake or another natural disaster.

In some cases, the damage to the residential or commercial property is so severe the best outcome is to get it ready for reconstruction. Our technicians perform a thorough cleanup of debris and damaged building materials and ensure the structure is clean, disinfected, and odor-free for when the rebuilding starts.

Dealing with insurance after a home disaster can feel overwhelming. When you bring SERVPRO on to mitigate any type of home or commercial property disaster, we can collaborate with both property owners and insurance adjusters during every step of remediation. Part of our standard service includes a detailing listing of ever action taking during the mitigation process and we take photographs of both the structure and contents before and after for expedited processing of insurance claims. We provide our unique CCIS Contents Claim Inventory System to catalog and document the restoration service.

SERVPRO technicians keep up on the latest developments in the restoration sciences. In doing so, we can assist property owners with lessening loss from home disaster events. For example, we utilize the same techniques as the Library of Congress for restoration and cleaning of fire and water damaged books. Thus saving important documents and reading material from being included as a loss and the burden of the cost of replacing items of the property owner.

The SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno team is ready to assist you 24/7 with any restoration services caused by water, fire, mold, or storm. Because we are locally based, We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Just call (408) 600-2020.
