Commercial SERVPRO of SW Bakersfield Services SERVPRO

Yes, We Do Than Water & Fire Restoration and Mold Remediation... But we do a whole lot more!

Most people know that SERVPRO handles fire and water damage clean-up and restoration as well as mold remediation. Our 1-4-8 service standard says that we commit to responding to a call from an insurance carrier or call into the Call Center within 1 hour, be on scene in 4 hours and have an update to your insurance carrier within 8 hours to report on the condition of the loss. Because of this SERVPRO is one of the fastest and most trusted restoration companies in America!  SERVPRO of SW Bakersfield is a locally owned franchise and we go even further and try to respond to your calls in Bakersfield and surrounding areas within 30 minutes and be on scene within 1 to 2 hours!

Water Damage Clean-Up

Water damage issues are an extremely time sensitive problem. Water damage clean-up costs generally average between $1000 to $4000 depending on the area affected and the length in time it takes for a professional to get on scene to start the clean-up. Additionally, the longer an area stays wet, the higher the chance that mold will surface and become a problem. That causes a significant increase to the cost of the clean-up as well as the time it takes to restore your home or business to its original condition. We use the best equipment and most innovative approaches to dry out water damage issues quicker than anyone else. Along with being on scene within 1 to 2 hours, this experience gives us the best chance to keep your water damage losses to a minimum! Our dry out times are generally within 2 to 3 days for a project that it would take most companies 4 to 5 days. Our goal is to have a dry out completed within 48 hours.

Fire Damage Clean-Up

Our 24-Hour Emergency service provides you with the peace of mind that if your crock pot (or slow cooker) causes an electrical fire in the middle of the night, we can be there in a flash to get working on cleaning up any time of the day or night so you can get back to living your life as quickly as possible! According to the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning Restoration and Certification) “Ash and smoke, if left unhindered, will cause extensive corrosion, etching and discoloration, not to mention lingering powerful odors.” The IICRC requires it’s registrants to take extensive coursework in fire restoration techniques before they are certified. SERVPRO of SW Bakersfield are IICRC certified For Fire, Water clean-up and mold remediation.

Mold Remediation

There are over 100,000 different types of mold spores! We breathe them into our lungs every day. Most people don’t know that all types of mold aren’t bad. In fact, there are only a handful of those mold spore types that are actually hazardous. The MBL (Mold & Bacteria Consulting Laboratories) lists hazardous mold types in three categories. You can see these categories and their definitions here: https://www.moldbacteria.com/mold-types.html. It is important to make sure that when you are taking care of mold in your home or business that you are using experts who have extensive training in how to identify different mold types and how to eradicate them to protect your structure and your health. SERVPRO of SW Bakersfield technicians are IICRC certified for mold remediation and have been trusted to help hundreds home and businesses owners in the Bakersfield and surrounding areas take care of their mold problems for over 13 years!

But wait!... There’s More!

Tips on Cleaning and Organizing Workspaces

Commercial Tips on Cleaning and Organizing Workspaces Clean Desk

Divide Your Workspace Into Zones:

Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.

Keep Only What You Need at Arm’s Length:

Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you’ve established for them.

Sort Your Catch-All Drawer:

Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn’t being used.

Eliminate Digital Clutter:

Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files – with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor of calendar reminders.

Create A Daily Paper System:

Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled “To Read,” “To Do,” and “To File.” Establish set days for each, so that you don’t get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.

Disinfect Regularly:

Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard, and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

Torrential Rains in Bakersfield Cause Unexpected Water Damage

Commercial Torrential Rains in Bakersfield Cause Unexpected Water Damage SERVPRO has the tools and resources to deal with water damage in your grocery store or other type of business.

Certified SERVPRO Technicians Deal Successfully with Water Damage on an Every Day Basis


Areas that rarely see heavy rains find businesses unprepared when historic rainfall occurs. Paved areas around commercial buildings flood, causing water to enter commercial areas. Harm to inventory, structure, and contents needs a solution. SERVPRO has the equipment and the employees to manage unexpected water damage.
 
A wall of water caused by unusually heavy rains damages your Bakersfield grocery store. The vast parking areas around the supermarket had nothing in place to slow the flow of water pooling on the surfaces. Flat ingress and egress into and out of the store, built for ease of shopping carts full of wares, permitted several inches of water to encroach into your store. The industrial strength water extraction equipment we make available to our customers makes short work of these flood waters, minimizing the commercial water damage inside your store.
 
When water invades your retail space, you probably do not own the pumps or water extractors that prove essential to clear the moisture. Speedy removal and then effective drying are the keys to avoiding the secondary issues that arise when standing or seeping water infiltrates. Extracting the relatively clean rainwater fast means your inventory is unharmed and your fixtures, shelving, and cashier lanes sustain little lasting harm. SERVPRO has pumps and super-effective vacuums to remove the water swiftly. Air movers and dehumidifiers join the extraction equipment once standing water is gone. These powerful machines reduce the moisture content of the air and flooring, ensuring that collateral damage like microbial growth does not occur.
 
Wet, slippery floors create a hazard for your customers, but SERVPRO's drying specialists make certain these dangers do not result in harm. Rely on our well-trained teams of water damage technicians to take all the steps needed to clear away the wetness before actual water damage takes hold. As they dry the surface, our techs are also viewing the subflooring and tile or other surfaces for damage and saturation. If water made its way under the tiles, we have methods to pull the water with drying mats to be certain the floor remains free from warping.
 
Although it is a rare occurrence, SERVPRO of SW Bakersfield is fully prepared for the water damage sustained heavy rains can do. Phone us at 661) 326-8422 to investigate the help we offer.
