Southern California Rain Storm
During the month of March, Southern California received a well needed rain storm that brought us over 3 inches of rain.
Most of us were sheltered at home and at the first sign of water intrusion SERVPRO of Redondo Beach/Manhattan Beach received calls from residents around our communities to get help for cleanup of water and mitigation of the damage.
At the same time we would like to remind all members of our community who own or manage commercial properties, and especially the ones that currently had to close due to the current COVID-19 stay at home order, that for the future convenience and health related workplace issues please do inspect inside the closed facilities and make sure there is no water intrusion from the rain storm of the last few days.
It is a good idea to mitigate and repair any damaged area now than to face a delayed discovery of water which can become mold if it stays unrecognized.
SERVPRO of Redondo Beach/Manhattan Beach responds 24/7 to all storm related emergency calls in this lockdown situation of Los Angeles County.
We are pleased to announce that we are taking all possible precautionary measures to keep our job site, employees and customers safe and free from contamination of the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Happy Holidays everyone!
In case of an emergency, follow these tips to help make it seem "Like it never even happened"
1. Gather local contacts including the fire department, your insurance company, and your local SERVPRO. This is the first step to take after an emergency occurs.
2. Next, locate your water shut off valve. This is critical to mitigating water damage.
3. If water is coming from light fixtures or electrical outlets, shut off your electrical box/circuit breaker.
4. Safely gather valuable belongings.
5. Identify the source of water damage and begin to remediate if possible.
These are some of the best practices when it comes to your safety and reducing damage. With some preparedness, we can bounce back from disaster and make it "Like it never even happened."
Cigarette Smoke Odor Removal
Cigarettes have been around for hundreds of years and they continue to be a source of harmful odors. Not only do they contaminate the air, but they will discolor surfaces with a yellowish-brown tint.
Some short term solutions include:
1. Using a vinegar spray and wiping surfaces
2. Using scented candles or air fresheners
3. Buying indoor plants
To fully eliminate cigarette smoke odor:
1. Clean/replace air filters
2. Clean walls/ceilings with ammonia and glycol, then repaint
3. Hire a professional cleaning company (SERVPRO). The professional process involves a thorough cleaning followed by the use of ozone generators that destroy the smoke particles that are hiding deep within a surface.
Cigarette smoke can be a nuisance, but there's ways to fight back!
