How Professional Cleaning Can Save Your Business

4/10/2022 (Permalink)

Now that many Californians are beginning to go back into the office following the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of the importance of not only disinfecting our work spaces to stop the spread of viruses, but also to halt common wear and tear that soils a shared office space.

While your janitorial staff does the regular maintenance of keeping your surfaces clean and presentable, there are many areas that are neglected. Regular deep cleaning of walls, floors, and carpets can help prevent harmful mold and bacteria from developing and creating a hazardous work environment. 

It is not uncommon for commercial businesses to discover unpleasant odors or moisture and grime build ups that need professional attention. At SERVPRO of Fontana, our professionals are trained on proper cleaning and disinfecting AND identifying the source of any issues that may arise. 

If any further issues arise that contribute to an unhealthy work environment or speeding up the soiling process, we will address these issues quickly and efficiently. We understand that your business needs to keep moving and will do so with little to no disruption to your workflow. 

No business is exempt from our cleaning and restoration services. We service restaurants, hotels, small businesses, and more! Let’s get your property back in business.

What causes California Wildfires?

SERVPRO of Fontana truck fire SERVPRO of Fontana responds to Fire Damage in Southern California

In Southern California, wildfire season peaks between July and November. The dry winds, lack of rain, and fall air create the perfect storm for wildfires to thrive. 

As we continue through fire season in California, it is important for to know what you can do to help prevent fires and protect your home or business. Throughout 2021, California has faced another dire drought situation, forcing governor Newsom to press a state of emergency in many California counties. This late summer and early fall have continued to create dangerously dry conditions.

As of September 30, 2021 42% of the state of California was facing extreme drought conditions, while 46% was facing exceptional drought conditions. Exceptional is the worst level a drought can reach. Drought combines with rising temperatures and dry wind to evaporate water sources, dry soil, and kill trees and other plantlife. In turn, conditions for wildfires become an elevated risk and precautions must be taken by those who live and work in Southern California.

No two wildfires are the same. They have different sources, speeds, damage levels, and impacts. In Southern California the drought situation combines with other factors to start fires, while the wind contributes to spreading them throughout the dry brush once plants have died and the soil has dried.

The conditions can be right for a wildfire, but an outside factor still has to be the source. Outside factors can come from nature, such as lightning, but most of our fires are results of human error or arsen. 

Many of California’s most damaging wildfires have ignited from downed power lines, sparks from car accidents or flat tires, fireworks, cigarettes, and arson. Each of these has been the source of some of the biggest fires in California’s history. 

It is important that we listen to state officials and avoid any activities that may create an elevated risk of starting these wildfires that wreak havoc on our communities. If your home or business has been struck by damaging fires this wildfire season, contact us today for an immediate response at (909) 357-4337.

Hot and Dry Weather means More Southern California Fires

Sierra California Fires Report

Amidst a historic drought and unusually high temperatures, the Southern Sierras are a hot spot for unruly wildfires this season. Just last Saturday, the KNP Complex fire in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park burned over 58,200 acres and was only 20% contained. 

According to Cassie Adams, public information officer present at the scene of the fire, there were 659 people forced to leave their home with evacuation orders for the communities of: Big Meadows, Weston Meadows and Quail Flat in the Giant Sequoia National Monument, as well as Grant Grove, Wilsonia and Cedar Grove in Kings Canyon National Park.

Not only do wildfires effect the people, economy and businesses nearby, but sadly nature and wildlife. As you can imagine, there is a large concern for the towering, beautiful sequoia trees in those areas as well. Officials say it will require patience and more time to predict the extent of the tree mortality due to these fires.

The Importance of Immediate Storm Damage Remediation

7/3/2021 (Permalink)

Storms and floods are alike in that they both produce extensive damages to any property, and you can’t have one without the other. During or following intense storms or heavy rain, you may find damages due to flooding, leaks, fallen trees (or other debris) and more. When your property is struck it is important to understand the seriousness of these damages and how to address them.

In Southern California, we don’t frequently see heavy rainfall or severe storms, however, when we do get these storms they are often powerful and strong. Storms can provoke a variety of damages to any home or business, putting your property at a standstill. These damages will likely force you out of your home or office until repairs are made. That’s why you need an immediate response from a team of experts trained to identify the problem and the best way to fix it.

Often, those facing water damages following storms think it is simply enough to mop the floor and let it air dry. However, this is not enough. When proper care and remediation techniques are neglected, new damages develop structurally, creating an unsafe structure and living conditions. Professional teams are trained to drain the water and remove excess moisture to protect the structure of your property and those who live (or work) there. 

At SERVPRO of Fontana, we are professionals at a variety of services including storm damage/flood clean up and restoration. Our disaster recovery teams make sure that your home is safe and free of other damages, moisture challenges, and mold to get your property back to normal as quick as possible.
