It is not uncommon for water damage, floods, and fire damage to wipe out the functionality of a commercial building for months, so we urge you to prepare your buildings with the aid of our Emergency Ready Plan (ERP). Our Emergency Ready Plan is a great tool that commercial properties of any size can utilize to be prepared for any loss case.

Essentially, SERVPRO will take a tour of your building and take notes of key locations in it, like your water shutoff valve, gas shutoff, and electrical shutoff. Our notes, including photo's of valve locations, will be complied into a physical and digital folder for you to keep in case of emergency. These notes also help SERVPRO Tarzana/Reseda when we come to your aid. We take notes about your property for ourselves so that we can assist you strategically and optimally in these emergency situations.

In losses ranging from small leaks to large floods and fires, SERVPRO's ERP tool can ensure that you are prepared to take on any unwanted surprises that threaten the functionality of your property.

As we are approaching the cooler seasons you may be running your heater more. If you haven't run your heater in a while, once you turn it on you may think “what is that funny smell?”

If you have ever thought this, don't worry you're not the only one. Don't ignore what you're smelling, depending on the smell there may be an easy solution or possibly a problem. 

Does it smell Musty? 

When your heater is releasing a musty smell it may signify mold. Make sure you inspect your unit, get it cleaned and replace as needed to protect your home. 

Does it smell Dusty or Damp? 

Don't worry. This is normal. Overtime dirt and dust will build up. This smell will go away with more use to the heater. 

Does it smell like smoke or oil? 

If you have an oil furnace it is possible it could be leaking oil. A leak like this could put you at risk for fire damage.

SERVPRO Fire Safety These are some tips from SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda. If you have further questions, please call us at (818)881-3636

As we are moving closer to the holiday season, the San Fernando Valley residents are working on their recipes for the big day. One of the highest causes of fires is from cooking. The following are some safety tips for this season:

Tip #1: Stay in the room while you are boiling, grilling, frying or broiling food. That way you're near to help making sure nothing  happens. 

Tip#2: Make sure your sleeves are rolled up or you're wearing close fit clothes. If you have bulky sleeves it is possible the cloth can catch on fire. 

Tip #3: Keep your extension cords to a minimum and try to plug appliances directly into the wall outlet. 

Tip #4: If you notice a fire in your oven, turn it off immediately and allow the food to cool down before you open it again. If the fire has escaped the oven make sure you call 911 immediately.

How Does SERVPRO Use A Dehumidifier

9/21/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Dehumidifier If you have a water loss on your property, call SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda for an inspection today.

SERVPRO mainly uses dehumidifiers for water and mold related jobs. Our dehumidifier plays a large role in drying out commercial buildings and homes. A dehumidifier raises the temperature in the room to help take the water out of the affected materials. 

A dehumidifier(dehu for short) helps control and stabilize the environment. The dehu evaporates the water from the affected materials and air. The dehu basically inhales the wet air and exhales the dry air to eventually dry out all of the affected materials on the property. SERVPRO can create containments to help the dehu target a specific area. 

We recommend leaving the dehumidifier for 3-5 and should be left running all day with no interruption. The dehumidifier makes the area get warmer with time. If the dehu is interrupted it causes the whole process to start over.
