What to expect when you call us

When you decide to call SERVPRO of El Monte you will reach our front desk first. You'll tell us the situation you are in and we will ask a few more follow up questions. First, we want to make sure you're safe, second we want to know when we can come out to see the damage. When we come out, we are already prepared with measuring tape, moisture readers and a camera. We will take a tour around the area that has damage and look at all the surrounding rooms. Sometimes water leaks in more than one concentrated area and can easily affect non visible places. Mold can start to grow very quickly and not all materials withstand water moisture. We will give you details of what we assess and an approximate cost. After our visit we will begin creating an estimate for you. Within a day you will know the source of damage and the cost. From there we can coordinate with you and the insurance to make sure everyone is on the same page. 

Different colors of fire

5/14/2020 (Permalink)

We are always heartbroken when we get calls about fire damage. We know how heartbreaking fire damage can be. The color of fire damage is black. Fire kills everything it touches with aggression. Just like fire, smoke damage leaves a black film around everything it touches. People usually assume that fires are red, orange and yellow, but in reality the only color you see is black. We use very special sponges to wipe away the color of smoke. These special sponges even reduce the smell of smoke. They are small but very powerful. They almost act like erasers. The small sponges remove all the smoke damage from walls, doors, windows and even portraits. Our clients are always pleased when we can use these sponges as they very easy to apply and the clean up is simple.

Home Insurance

5/8/2020 (Permalink)

As a homeowner, it's really important to understand your insurance policy. We get a lot of calls from people who don't know whether or not their insurance companies cover damages caused by water. We never know when a disaster will happen, but it helps to be prepared and knowledgeable. Sometimes, we get heavy rain that causes leaks and flooding. It can even be a frozen pipe that suddenly bursts and creates damage. We have seen it all and there are many ways that water can damage your home. It's important to know what your insurance covers, and it's great to have that information at hand. It will actually make the process easier for you. There's a lot of reconstruction that comes with water damage, and you shouldn't worry about costs. You can reduce the amount of stress by calling your insurance company every six months to go over your policy. They will be more than happy to speak with you, it helps to have an on going relationship with your insurance carrier. We know this because we deal with insurance agents for every job. We have to make sure we do what is necessary and also what's covered. We try to minimize out of pocket expenses for you too! 

Routine environmental cleaning

Molecule of virus We are always here to help.

We now have two new Procleaning services to offer residential and business properties. 

Package 1 Minimize the transmission of emerging viral pathogens   General surface cleaning – physically removes visible dirt, organic matter, viruses, fungi, and bacteria. General surface cleaning is accomplished with water, detergent, and physical scrubbing of the surface. The guiding principal is to remove microbes if possible, rather than kill them (with a sanitizer or disinfectant). In addition, thoroughly cleaning a surface can reduce the need to disinfect because without the nutrients and moisture needed to survive and multiply, most microbes cannot live on a clean and dry surface for very long.    Package 2 Limit the survival of emerging viral pathogens - Sanitizing – reduces but does not necessarily eliminate all the bacteria on a treated surface. Sanitizers do not have claims for viruses or fungi. To be a registered sanitizer, the test results for a product must show a reduction of at least a. 99.9% in the number of each type of bacteria tested on non-food-contact surfaces. Examples of non-food-contact sanitizers include carpet sanitizers, air sanitizers, laundry additives, and in-tank toilet bowl sanitizers. - Disinfecting – works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs. Disinfecting destroys or irreversibly inactivates infectious or other undesirable microbes, but not necessarily the spores of bacteria and fungi. The number of microbes killed during a disinfecting process will vary, depending on the specific chemical and how it is used.
