SERVPRO Has the Ability to Handle Your Commercial Flooding Disaster

9/15/2021 (Permalink)

Office space with drying equipment. Water damage When your business needs immediate assistance, call SERVPRO of NW Ventura County 805-507-5507

Flooding in business is usually the result of damaged plumbing, a sprinkler system going off, or leak in the roof. Eliminating the effects of Commercial water damage in a hotel or office building can take several days or weeks, depending on the amount of water on the floor and what is in it. Let SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County be the company to help.

This situation is bad enough in a private home but spread the damage across ten floors, and 200 rooms and the restoration costs start to look like the purchase price of a mini-mansion! With more than 25 years experience in the restoration business, SERVPRO knows that replacing carpets is one of the most common, and expensive, costs. 

In most cases carpets get soaked, but the water levels are not more than an inch. Our technicians can come in with water extraction wands to draw out the bulk of the water and remove it from the building for each floor of the building.

With water removal accomplished, we begin the process of drying the carpet. This procedure is needed to prevent the fibers from rotting, mold from forming, and to stop deterioration. We use a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to direct warm, dry air across the carpet surface and force the damp air out of the rooms, down the hallways and into the stairwells where we can vent it outside. Our technicians may prop open the fire exits to assist venting the air if weather permits.

Since commercial grade carpets normally do not have a pad underneath, there is rarely a need to pull them up. However, if they were underwater for more than a day before we arrived, it may be necessary to carefully pull up both an entry and an exit point to force air underneath. It speeds the drying process and is particularly useful if deterioration is a concern. 

At SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County, we understand that each day lost to flooding means a loss of thousands of dollars. To help keep your doors open and your guests or tenants happy, we keep a response team on 24-hour notice. If you need our services, call us today at (805) 507-5507 for more information.

Mold In Your Ventura Commercial Property?

Mold is all around us! 

Add a little water and give it a few days, and before you know it, mold is active and spreading.

We get a lot of calls at SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County concerning mold in commercial buildings. Don’t panic!

We can address your concerns, by finding out:

  • Where is the source of moisture?
  • What needs to be repaired to stop the spread of moisture and mold in the workplace?
  • What are the next steps to get business back and running?

When you can't see visible mold but find that employees are having some health effects in the workplace, we refer you to an Environmental Hygienist for Indoor Air Quality and Mold testing.  

SERVPRO can remediate mold, but we do not test for mold.

An Environmental Hygenist is able to give the business owner more information. This typically includes 1.) a full site visual inspection, 2.) collection and testing air and surface samples, and 3.) measuring the moisture levels in the building.

Their findings and recommendations are included in a report, or protocol, which is given to the customer.

  • The next step is for the commercial customer to send us the protocol.
  • We can then do an assessment at the business site.
  • At that point we can give you an estimate, and scope of work, keeping in mind that there may be unknowns.

SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County is locally owned and operated and available for Emergency Service 24/7. Call us for Mold Remediation at 805-507-5507

Differences Between Commercial & Residential Restoration

9/28/2020 (Permalink)

Left side shows a residential home with Residential written underneath. The right side has a commercial building Regardless if it's Residential or a Commercial property SERVPRO has your back! 805-507-5507

There are many factors that differentiate the restoration process between a commercial building and a residential one. This is apart from the obvious size differences of the two. SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County takes each commercial restoration as an opportunity to solve a challenging situation. In order to successfully complete the restoration process, we have to look at what type of commercial building we are dealing with.

First of all, what constitutes as a commercial building? It can be a large business, a restaurant or an apartment complex with multiple housing units. When dealing with multiple units it is not uncommon to have multiple claims open with multiple insurance companies. You are now dealing with multiple insurance adjusters, different requirements and expectations from those different insurance companies. On top of having the building owner/manager requiring daily updates, you have the individual tenants who also need to stay informed on the process. It can be daunting to say the least but SERVPRO knows proper procedures and can determine the best route of action.


In situations where you are dealing with an office setting, where the office cannot afford to shut down during the restoration process, we have to look at the overall needs of the company and employees. In this case we have to be mindful of noise from our machines and make sure walkways are clear so as not to be a tripping hazard to employees. In this case equipment set up can require a bit of problem solving in which SERVPRO is ready to tackle.

Here at SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County, our teams are experienced in the above scenarios. We take pride in our work ethic and ability to solve problems. In a situation like this where most would call challenging, we view it as an opportunity to show you why you should be confident when working with us.

Don’t forget SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County is here for you when your business or commercial property needs help! Call us 24/7 at 805-507-5507!

Commercial Property Restoration After a Water Damage in Ventura, CA.

10/18/2019 (Permalink)

flooded office with fallen ceiling debris Don't let your business suffer after a water loss. Call SERVPRO right away 805-507-5507

Water can cause extensive damage to your business quicker than you would think.  There are great benefits to having it removed ASAP.

 Mold Can Form In 24-72 Hours After a Flood

The moisture level indoors changes very quickly after a flood or water loss. Water can be absorbed by carpet and drywall.  This can increase humidity exponentially. In fact, humidity can accelerate mold growth and cause this fungus to grow as soon as 24 hours after water is present. Having water damage and mold remediation company come right away to perform mitigation and mold cleanup may reduce repair costs and get you back to business.

  Warrping of wood floors

 Wood building materials warp if mitigation does not take place within at least 48 hours. If water is not mitigated it can increase the water vapor in the air and cause damage to wooden furniture, molding, and flooring.  Remove furniture as soon as it is safe to do so and store it in a cool, dry place until affected rooms are repaired and restored.


If flooding in your building was caused by plumbing, the results can be just as bad. For example, if a pipe burst in the break room, the water can affect electrical systems and equipment and cause a short circuit, which increases the risk of fire. Extracting standing water can reduce all of these potential hazards.

If your business suffers from a water loss, call SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County 805-507-5507.
