How To Avoid Extended Closures After A Leak In Your Commercial Building

6/11/2020 (Permalink)

It doesn't take much to be hit by water damage in your commercial building. It can be as simple as your employee bathroom supply line bursting, this can output gallons and gallons of water in just one night. The resulting spillage can cause damage to carpets, furniture, computers and important documents. 

If you happen to experience this do not panic. We can send in one of our highly trained technicians who carefully inspect the entirety of your business to log all instances of water damage to your building before beginning the restoration process. To quickly and efficiently remove standing water, our tech crews can utilize industrial grade wet vacs and pumps. To avoid major disruptions to your business, we can begin the water extraction process at a time that works best for you.

Once any excess water has been removed we can start to work on the affected sections of flooring. Carpet is highly absorbent and can hold a lot of moisture which can cause it to delaminate. We have special tools to help us remove any carpet or if need be lift it for drying. 

We can then assist you with drying out any other affected materials using our air movers and dehumidifiers. The sooner we place this equipment the soon your business will be back up and running.

Never Leave a Stove Unattended When in Use

5/19/2020 (Permalink)

Unattended Flame Unattended Stove Top Could be Dangerous

In these challenging times it is easy to get sidetracked.

It happens, especially now…… doing several things at once, spring cleaning, while you have soup on the stove. So you leave the stove, just for a quick minute. Only it’s just never as quick as you anticipate. Meanwhile back in the kitchen….a fire has erupted. It can happen so quickly.

Good Rule: Never leave the stove or turn your back for any period of time.

Think fast!

1) Evaluate – call 911 if it is out of control while gathering family and get to safety

2) Put a metal lid on it

3) Turn off the heat

4) Dump baking soda

5) Chemical fire extinguisher is best as a last resort or if the above options are not available

6) Stop. Let the area sit, cool down, before you address the damage.


1) Do not throw water

2) Do not use a hand towel

We hope you NEVER have to worry about a Fire Damage, but SERVPRO of San Jacinto/Idyllwild/Lakeview is here to help with the clean-up should disaster strike. 

Quick thinking will allow the structure's damage to be contained to the kitchen. However soot and smoke damage can occur throughout the residence.

You will need to take documentation of all your belongings that have been damaged due to the fire or smoke, and gather as much as you can to verify each item's value.
