Water Damage Restoration

Water damage repairs are one of the most common insurance claims in Southern California — in fact the entire nation.  And immediate action is needed to minimize those costs.  Regardless of the source, water soaks down through carpet and flooring in a matter of minutes and quickly wicks up inside walls.  Once there it’s trapped, and often takes weeks to fully evaporate.  Yet excess moisture can cause wood to swell, warp, and crack and drywall to disintegrate in a matter of days.  Mold and bio-hazards arise in as little as 24 hours.  Our experienced and certified technicians can prevent that from happening with specialized water extraction, De-humidification, ventilation, and spot-heating equipment… in as little as 1/2 the time of alternative methods.  With frequent monitoring we won’t stop until building materials are down to safe moisture levels.  We’ll also take care of any disinfecting and odor neutralizing needs, and follow up with top-quality water damage repairs.

Flood Damage Restoration

Natural flooding, as well as major plumbing failures, add rapid pump out to the list.  Sanitation can also be an ever bigger issue with flood damage removal.  That’s clearly the case whenever sewage is involved, but any water is likely to become filled with microorganisms within a day or so.  Count on us to protect you as well as our workers from those hazards.  We’ll then follow through with any mold removal and flood damage removal you might need.

Mold Remediation

Mold removal must be done exactly by the book, and only by certified well-trained technicians.  When disturbed, molds release a host of spores, toxins, and allergens that can quickly spread throughout your home or business.  Our mold remediation services begin with isolating the work area, then using the best mold removal technique for the situation, and following up with non-toxic mildicide and odor removal.

Leak Detection

Sometimes the source of water isn’t obvious.  In that case our technicians will draw on their training, experience, and the latest electronic leak detection instruments to pinpoint the location.  Nowadays there’s simply no reason to put up with someone making hole after hole trying to track down the problem.

 

Fire Damage Restoration

Even a small fire can leave you feeling devastated.  So it shouldn’t be a surprise that proper fire damage removal calls for a wide variety of skills and treatments including highly technical tasks such as smoke and odor removal.  After making the building safe and secure, we’ll immediately address water damage removal from firefighting as part of our clean up efforts and then tackle any and all fire damage repair tasks.  Burning produces thousands of different compounds, and many of them are toxic or otherwise hazardous.  So our haul-away includes proper disposal to protect the environment and abide by all local regulations.

Smoke and Odor Removal

Smoke and soot travel throughout the building, including inside walls and duct work as well as other out-of-sight places.  Out of the thousands of compounds created in fires, hundreds of them are toxic and/or corrosive.  The exact list depends on the exact nature of the fire, so extensive technical expertise is needed to remove them in the best way possible.  That needs to be done promptly before metal items are harmed.  Those compounds are also absorbed by just about any porous materials including walls, wood framing, furniture and so on.  If they remain too long they, and the odors they slowly release, become permanent.  So our smoke and odor removal services often include soda blasting for building surfaces as well as ozone treatments to neutralize odors throughout the structure.

La Crescenta California’s Historical Disasters

The La Crescenta – Montrose area has been part of two history-making natural disasters.  The first was “The Great Flood of 1934” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Crescenta-Montrose,_California).  Following wildfires in late 1933 the flooding actually began in December of that year and led to 3 major mudslides that destroyed over 400 homes in La Canada, La Crescenta, Montrose, and Tujunga.  At the opposite extreme was the 2009 Station Fire (http://www.nbcnews.com/id/32615136/ns/us_news-life/t/la-area-wildfire-destroys-structures/#.VyKBlTHjV_A) that destroyed 164 square miles and 53 buildings, with thousands of evacuations.  Besides major disasters, La Crescenta CA experiences damaging storms(such as the one at the end of 2014) as well as wildfires from time to time.
