We Can Save Your Home In Glendale After A Flood
“Like it never even happened.”
Flood Damage In Glendale – Falling Trees Punch Hole In Roof
Many storms come with high winds and lots of rain. The wind can topple trees onto the roof of homes and businesses, allowing water to flood into the building. Very quickly, everything is wet with water pouring throughout the home or business. There is a lot of damage. When the storm is over, you need help.
SERVPRO responds to flood damage events of all kinds in Glendale. Our teams can be deployed on a 24 -hour basis to assist owners, to control the damage and begin the restoration and cleanup process. Our first task is to assess the situation, make sure everyone is safe, and review the building for any potential safety hazards.
A roof puncture allows water, debris, and even rodents to enter the home. Our first task often is to arrange for debris removal and place tarps on the roof. Our objective is to prevent further water and debris from entering.
SERVPRO removes furniture and contents to a staging area for cleaning and drying. These items are stored in the staging area until it is time to return these items to their original location.
Water and Moisture Removal
Water from flood damage caused by storms can penetrate walls, ceilings, and of course flooring materials. Drywall and carpeting absorb and retain moisture. Some carpets may separate from the backing material, which is called delamination. These carpets and underpad cannot be repaired.
We remove drywall past the waterline. Ceilings and insulation may also be removed in the areas where water poured in through the roof. Drying of structures then begins. We aim to minimize the tear-out and reconstruction work required on your property.
We are licensed (General Contractor License) to provide restoration services for full structural damage repair and rebuild. Our team can provide a total coordinated response to restore your home or business, “Like it never even happened.”

Our crew chief quickly assesses the situation and deploys water extractors, dehumidifiers, and air movers to dry your home or office. He may need to set up a separate staging area to move your wet contents for further processing and drying. The staging area may be in another part of your home or office or at our SERVPRO facilities.

We Discuss Tips For Cleaning Up Your Glendale Home After A Fire
We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
Tips For Cleaning Up Your Glendale Residential After Fire Damage
Your Glendale home should be one place where you can always feel safe, regardless of what happens to you out in the world. However, a fire offers the opposite. A house fire may occur because of various reasons, including leakage of cooking gas, overloaded electrical outlets and short-circuiting. Our SERVPRO restoration team is dedicated to bringing the feeling of comfort back to your home quickly.
When your Glendale property has fire damage, there are certain things you can do to prevent further destruction to your property and its contents. One is disposing of food items that have been exposed to smoke and heat. Throw away even the canned food because excessive heat can ruin the food inside the cans.
It is also essential to create a list of the damaged items for insurance claims purposes. To get a full claim of your loss, create a list containing the description of the damaged items, their estimated date of purchase, brand name, and price. Also, take photos of the ruined items to act as proof for the insurance firm.
Another thing you can do is to remove soot from items exposed to smoke. For instance, the fire may not have ruined the furniture, but it may be filled with soot. Do not use water to wash the residue. Instead, use a dry cloth to clean it. You should also remove smoke from your home by opening all the windows and switching on fans that increase air circulation.
Seeking the help of SERVPRO fire restoration specialists is vital because some tasks involved in restoring a home to its preloss state are difficult to handle. For instance, dealing with water damage resulting from firefighting efforts can be daunting. Moisture can cause mold to spread, which can cause health problems and contaminate carpets, furniture, mattresses, walls, and clothing. Our technicians can remove the water using wet/dry vacuums and then use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the affected areas.
Our Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians (FSRT) can also remove smoke residues from the exterior and interior surfaces of your home. We can use different mechanical actions to produce friction to agitate and loosen smoke residues. In certain situations, mechanical action can remove residues without applying cleaning products. Dry smoke can produce light concentrations of non-greasy smoke particles, and we can clean them from nonporous surfaces through mechanical action. Some items we use to produce mild agitation and are safe to apply on most surfaces including:
• Feather dusters
• Compressed air
Smoke residues also usually give off smoke odors. We can use various professional products to deodorize your home. They include odor counteracting beads, deodorant granules or pellets, and water-based odor counteractants.
SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale has the expertise to restore buildings to their peak state after fire disasters. Contact our team today at (323) 255-1000 for quick fire restoration services in Eagle Rock, Northeast Los Angeles, and Atwater Village.

What is Secondary Damage From a Broken Water Pipe in Glendale
Water leaks can cause mold growth. Call SERVPRO if you experience water damage in your home.
Performing Water Removal in Your Glendale Residence Quickly Can Prevent Further Damage
A mishap such as frozen or broken plumbing can cause water to pool in different parts of your Glendale home. It is critical to stop the source of the leak before the water spreads to the whole house. To control water damage, you need effective water removal. You can seek expert help to remove all the water from your home.
If you are dealing with a water intrusion incident, do not worry. SERVPRO has the skills and tools to perform water removal in your Glendale residence. Water can destroy drywall, cabinets, furniture, floors, and upholstery. If you do not remove the water quickly, it can lead to moist conditions which increase the chance of mold infestation. Do not let a water loss situation develop into a big, expensive problem. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) can fix the issue as quickly as possible. To offer effective water removal services, we take a few steps, such as:
- Determining the source of the leak
- Checking the extent of damage to contain the affected areas
- Removing ruined materials
- Extracting the water, drying, and decontaminating the affected areas
We know the importance of keeping the cost of water damage restoration low. Therefore, our technicians extract the water as fast as possible to expedite the drying process and reduce the chances of secondary damage like mold growth occurring. We use the right equipment depending on the extent of the damage.
We use portable pumps that help us extract the water in a home. If the standing water in your home is over two inches deep, we use a submersible pump with adequate volume capacity and lift capacity. We pump water directly into a treated sewer like a septic system or toilet. It is also crucial to dry a house and its contents quickly. Some factors that affect the time required to dry a building and its contents are:
- Air movement
- The amount of water that needs evaporating
We control these factors to achieve successful drying. Our technicians remove as much water as possible, maintain the relative humidity between 30 and 60 percent, keep the temperature between 70 and 80 degrees, and move wet air away from surfaces.
Our technicians use tools such as hygrometers and moisture detectors to measure the level of moisture in walls and ceilings. If there is moisture in the walls and ceilings, we create an all-inclusive drying plan to eliminate it. We also treat furniture and carpets right away to prevent microbial growth. We have the expertise to make the water damage seem “Like it never even happened.”
If a water loss incident has happened in your Eagle Rock, Northeast Los Angeles or Atwater Village property, SERVPRO of Eagle Rock/ South Glendale can help you restore it to the preloss state. You can reach us at (323) 255-1000 for prompt restoration services.

Best Approach for Fire Damage Assessment in Your Glendale Home
Many Glendale homeowners seek to save their money whenever possible, and especially after devastating circumstances like fire loss incidents, this practice is even more critical. While there are aspects of fire recovery that even untrained homeowners can oversee and complete, more complicated tasks can prove dangerous or more destructive if not performed correctly and quickly. Our professionals have accreditation through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT), which keeps the entire response team up to date with the latest practices, equipment, and products to make even damage assessment happen efficiently.
Fire damage in Glendale homes can be much more profound than cosmetic concerns. Many of the lingering issues after even a small fire gets extinguished are not discernible to the naked eye, and therefore get overlooked without the appropriate training and experience our SERVPRO professionals have. The excessive temperatures of residential fires can alter the composition and integrity of exposed materials, requiring a thorough inspection and assessment to determine their threat level.
Knowledge provides confidence and peace of mind to our customers and gives our SERVPRO team a foundation to formulate the tailored plan of restoration explicitly designed for the individual property in question. While many homeowners mistakenly believe that damage assessment is little more than a smokescreen for higher upcharges or finding problems that do not exist, we have an honest and earnest approach to our recovery work to protect our clients and their properties – which includes the out of pocket expenses involved.
Inspections must happen as quickly as possible because there are multiple layers of effects and threats that exist in the property, the most pressing of which is structural failure and deterioration. It does not take long for compromised construction materials to become too weak to function correctly, which can result in injuries when these elements collapse under the weight of inspectors.
Secondly, contents within the property can become more and more damaged without the appropriate intervention of our trained team. A thorough assessment of the property earmarks these compromised possessions for removal to our facility for focused cleaning, deodorization, and safe storage until they can get returned.
While it might be tempting to oversee the inspection and assessment of your fire-damaged home on your own, there are many concerns to this approach as well. A safe practice is to trust your property to the experienced hands of our SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale fire recovery team. Give us a call anytime at (323) 255-1000.

What Should You do When Floodwaters Enter Your Glendale motel?
Don't let flood damage check into your motel! Call SERVPRO to remediate the damage.
Steps to Handling Commercial Flood Damage in Your Glendale Motel
Your motel in Glendale can sustain flood damage following a major storm. It could lead to loss of items like electronics, appliances, furniture, artwork, and the possessions of your guests. The floodwater can also ruin different types of flooring, including hardwood floors, tiles, vinyl, carpeting, and the wood subfloor beneath the carpeting.
Because of its porous surface, flood damage in your Glendale motel can also extend to the walls. It may be necessary to repair or replace the bottom section of the flood-damaged walls. The water may also ruin electrical wiring and cause fire and electrical hazards to staff and guests. Another problem linked to water damage is mold growth, which can affect the image and reputation of your motel and cause health risks.
Flooding in one part of the motel can cause the closure of the entire property for safety and health concerns. Once floodwater enters a motel, it is vital to drain it and sanitize the building as soon as possible to keep the destruction from worsening. Before doing this, you should document the severity of the damage with photos and videos, including any landscaping issue like lost signage and debris. You can count on SERVPRO franchise professionals to help you clean up your motel and dry as well as sanitize the affected areas.
Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) can identify the problem areas and develop an effective strategy to deal with the incident. We are equipped to handle disasters of every scale. We can assist you in restoring hallways, guest rooms, and meeting and conference areas to their preloss condition. We can isolate your work area so you can continue with operations whenever it is safe to do so and help you get back to full activities within a short time.
We have sophisticated water extraction equipment like truck-mounted pumps that can extract up to 36,000 gallons per day. Air movement is also crucial when drying a water-damaged building. The air in flood-damaged rooms slows down evaporation because it is usually humid and damp. Our SERVPRO technicians can place air movers in the affected rooms to blow the damp air outside and bring in warm, dry air to increase evaporation. We change the location of air moving equipment as drying happens to promote even and thorough drying of surfaces. After the moisture evaporates, it is necessary to remove it using dehumidifiers.
Flooding can leave you with ruined or undamaged contents like furniture which needs removing from contaminated and damp conditions. We offer pack-out services which involve taking restorable items to our facilities for cleaning, wipe and spray, immersion or foam cleaning, and other treatments. We provide secure storage for such things until it is time to return them to business premises.
If floodwaters have entered your motel, call SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale at (323) 255-1000 for assistance. We have experienced personnel and the right equipment to handle your commercial loss efficiently, making it seem, “Like it never even happened.”

A Pacific Ocean-Based Storm Can Cause Flood Damage To Your Glendale Home
Living in a city located on or near the coast always puts you at risk of suffering flood damage. A storm-gone-wrong could bring rushing tides, heavy rains, and intense winds right to your door. Usually, most residents of the area can get a fair warning before the storm hits, but sometimes the weather can take a dangerous turn and unexpectedly cause damage to your home. Whenever a storm hits your home and causes damage, always reach out for help as soon as possible.
In the case of your home, the flood damage got into your Glendale home through a smashed window. Torrential rains poured throughout the night and washed into your home through the broken window, which shattered when a small tree fell onto your home from the intense winds. Luckily for your home, only the window suffered the consequences of the fallen tree.
Here at SERVPRO, We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. Intense flooding, or just a secluded room, our Institution of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration-certified (IICRC) techs can rush to your home as swiftly as possible. Once there, our technicians can immediately begin to extract the stagnant water using advanced technological devices, such as extractors and wet/dry vacuums, to minimize the water damage inside of your home. Getting the water out quickly can minimize the chances of mold damage developing, as well as other problems.
Once the water has been extracted, we can make flood cuts along the walls to remove any damaged material. Doing this can ensure that the chance of microbial growth is further squashed. Afterward, SERVPRO can then set up drying equipment to draw any excess moisture out of the structure of your home, using devices such as dehumidifiers, heaters, and axial fans to do so. Once the remediation is finished, we hope to return your home to you, “Like it never even happened.”

Need Property Cleanup and Restoration after an Emergency in Eagle Rock? Call SERVPRO
Yeah, the SERVPRO Green Fleet to the Rescue in Eagle Rock
Why Eagle Rock Homeowners Choose SERVPRO for Home Restoration Services
When any type of damage from water, fire, mold or storms happens in Eagle Rock residences, the clock starts ticking on how much loss occurs to both property and possessions. That is why it is vital to bring in a professional restoration services company as quickly as possible to repair and recover both structural elements as well as home contents.
Time is the biggest enemy when it comes to water damage in Eagle Rock homes. The more prolonged exposure to excessive moisture happens, the more damage occurs to building materials and home furnishings. Plus the seriousness of the water cleanup builds with each passing hour.
Imagine a simple supply line break spills category one or clean water all over a bathroom floor. If the homeowners were away on vacation and did not return home for two to three days, that situation would require that the standing water would need handling as a Black Water cleanup and that carries a rating as a category three biohazard which requires our technicians don protective gear during mitigation for health and safety reasons.
When SERVPRO arrives on the scene, we begin scoping the home with our moisture detection equipment to determine areas of excessive moisture. Our team members hold certifications as Applied Structural Drying Technician (ASDT) and Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT). This training gives them the knowledge and skills they need to properly perform water extraction with the right equipment for the job.
Once we complete the water removal phase, we use powerful air movers to lift deeply embedded moisture from within the structure. The followup with both cleaning and disinfection inhibits the growth of mold and foul odors in the property.
When SERVPRO handles fire damage to an Eagle Rock residence, we know large or small, it can feel overwhelming. We assist property owners by compiling reports for insurance claims, including a detailed report with descriptions and photographs of building materials and items in the home that required removal or remediation through our proprietary cleaning methods.
When our technicians work on large-scale fire damage, often the best outcome for the property is to prepare the residence for rebuilding. It may involve actions from fire debris removal to controlled demolition techniques for cutting away charred areas of the structure to leave it ready for restorative reconstruction. Our location has a General Contractor License #999460, and we handle all phases of fire damage in homes from cleanup to restoration and save property owners the hassle of searching for and hiring different agencies for remediation and rebuilding.
Smoke odor is a massive issue as the end result of even small fires in a home. Our certified odor control technicians utilize multiple methods to neutralize odors from smoke, water damage, musty mold odors and more using both cleaning techniques and specialized equipment such as negative air machines, hydroxyl generators and thermal fogging.
Mold damage in Eagle Rock homes often first gets discovered as a musty odor that does not dissipate. As certified mold remediation specialists #CMRC-82464, our technicians have the training and equipment to find mold colonies in your home and perform abatement to remove them. SERVPRO technicians do more than simple mold remediation; we find the cause of the mold growth, so the cycle does not repeat itself. Common reasons include:
- An unchecked slow leak in a home
- Poor drainage in a basement or crawlspace
- Blocked or poor ventilation such as from an exhaust fan leading to an attic
- Hydrostatic pressure forcing groundwater into the home space and the water is not adequately extracted and dried
Containment is a common way we stop the spread of spores around the property and often used with air scrubbers to capture airborne spores and reduce the numbers. Once the colonies are dried, we use manual removal techniques, and in stubborn or large-scale infestations, soda blasting is a useful abatement technique to remove all traces of the former mold problem.
Storm damage in Eagle Rock homes tends to happen suddenly, and often there is little to no warning to prepare your home, especially for microburst storms and flash floods. If the water that enters your home is from rain through the leak in the roof or perhaps a broken window from a tree limb, that is considered a clean water spill, and as long as the water cleanup happens within 24 to 48-hours, and carries a rating as a category one or two level water cleanup.
When flood water enters a home, it is severe and requires handling as a category three or black water level cleanup. The groundwater has the potential to have debris, contaminants, even sewage, and homeowners should avoid contact. When our technicians perform cleanup, they were protective clothing, including eye protection and respirators.
SERVPRO technicians have different types of equipment to remove water quickly. Some of the most commonly used are portable pumps to cover small areas of water extraction and weighted extraction wands to push water out of soft or porous surfaces, such as saturated carpeting to make it easier to remove. Our truck-mounted industrial units deal with large scale water removal in short order. No matter what type of flood damage you are dealing with, SERVPRO employees assist homeowners in realizing as little loss as possible through our specialized drying methods to salvage as much of the affected home contents as we can using our cleaning and restoration methods.
WHY SERVPRO? We have a commitment to quality restoration services for both residential and commercial properties. Our technicians hold numerous certifications in the restoration sciences, and because we are members of the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) - State of California #999460, we assist property owners not only with the initial cleanup of water damage, fire loss or mold remediation, but also any repairs or reconstruction that is needed. This seamless service is especially helpful when filing insurance claims as you get a cohesive report from the start of cleanup to the finish of rebuilding to turn in to your carrier complete with photographs of before and after.
SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale stands ready to serve our local community with restoration services for all levels of fire, water, mold or storm damage in residential and commercial properties. Call (323) 255-1000 and our emergency response team can arrive on site quickly because We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

We Are The Crew To Call When A Fire Has Damaged Your Glendale Residence
After a fire of any size ruins portions of your residence or guts the entire property, call us at (323) 255-1000.
Why Property Owners Call SERVPRO When Fire Damages Their Glendale Residence
Life after a house fire can place your family on a rocky path. Your Glendale home needs many changes to happen for things to become safe again. SERVPRO’s specialist teams can get your home restored and livable again. We do this while sticking to deadlines and staying within your budget. Part of this includes working with your insurance adjuster, as doing so ensures that all costs have prior approval.
These reasons are a large part of why SERVPRO receives calls from residents in Glendale when fire damage harms their home. The house you live in and the things inside can all sustain damage from fire, smoke, and the water used to snuff the flames out. Heat and steam can also ruin several things, even in situations where only smaller, isolated fires occurred.
SERVPRO can help your family by continuing the restoration process after we finish mitigating the damage. Once we complete the necessary cleaning of soot deposits, removal of damaged materials and belongings, and eliminating odors and what causes them, we can venture into the rebuilding phase that your house desperately needs.
The same team member that board up and place temporary fencing to keep the premises secure return to install drywall, paint new walls and ceilings, and new flooring. Our contractor license covers general, residential, and commercial building in California. Our goal is to make sure our professionals leave our customers with a house they can feel at home again. Our extensive range of experience makes this possible, no matter how small and simple or large and complex your needs.
Often, a home sustains severe damage to different components. The inside of HVAC systems can become coated with sticky smoke residue. This contamination can continue sending soot particles into the air occupants breathe, which can land on surfaces and leave them soiled, as well as cause occupants to experience unwanted health effects. We clean these units and replace any sections of tubing that show scorching from hot ash. We can also check for other problems that can cause HVAC systems to work harder and less efficiently than they should.
Electrical systems often experience areas where heat melted the plastic coverings of wires, leaving them exposed and capable of causing new fires. We replace the wiring, electrical outlets, and other hardware to make things function as they should.
When firefighters arrive, they often make holes in the roof to gain better control of the fire and to send water into specific locations. To help the mitigation team, we put protective tarps in place over opened up roofs before mitigation begins. Afterward, we return to repair these areas altogether.
SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale can make your Northeast Los Angeles, Atwater Village, or Highland Park home “Like it never even happened” again. After a fire of any size ruins portions of your residence or guts the entire property, call us at (323) 255-1000. We are always here and can provide experienced guidance through a challenging and stressful time.
