Water Damage

Large commercial properties pose a unique set of challenges when it comes to flooding. Seeing as how not all restoration firms are created equally, business owners often refer to larger and more reputable outfits to address their restoration needs. These firms respect your priorities by assisting you in minimizing downtime, loss of productivity, and disruption. 

The average Southern California apartment contains many different items and features that can be affected and damaged by flood waters. One must also take into account that apartment complexes typically share common walls and therefore affect neighbors and fellow tenants. Some common issues that occur include:

  • Water damage to ground floor apartments
  • Inaccessible entry and exit points
  • Water damage to sheds and garages
  • Disruption of utility services like gas, water and electricity
  • The need to seek temporary housing
  • Backup of drainage or sewerage systems

Property owners and landlords often see losses, as well. While tenants are relocated during repairs, rent is now being paid and revenue is lost. Lawsuits posed from loss of personal property are also common.

Secondary water damage in an apartment building, like the growth of mold, can cause serious health effects to your tenants. SERVPRO of Chino / Chino Hills can respond to your flooding emergency quickly to prevent these problems. We assess the destruction to understand your unique needs while emphasizing speed and thoroughness.

Our technicians remove standing water from affected apartments using self-priming trash pumps and high-pressure pumps. Our crew can also remove any salvageable contents that the water did not affect. If a flood becomes a Category 2 or 3 event we will also dispose of any porous materials, such as drywall, upholstery, and carpeting. These items will be disposed of properly.

Our technicians can also remove wet carpeting and pad, and any drywall or plaster that is saturated with the floodwater. We can also remove wall insulation like fiberglass, mineral wool, and wood fiberboard. Our technicians can also remove all debris and clean up the affected apartments thoroughly. We can use various water damage restoration products like antimicrobial agents, sanitizers, and disinfectants to stop or limit the growth of microbes. 

Machines like air movers and dehumidifiers are also extremely effective in drying affected areas. SERVPRO has multiple proprietary tools to resolve all aspects of a flood, including the refinishing of wood or other sealed or finished materials.

Floods happen. When they do, SERVPRO of Chino / Chino Hills is here to help 24/7, 365 days a year.
