The past few months have been trying for many of us. And while it is not suggested to meet in large groups, we should still seek council from the community for the many issues we face.
The rise of Zoom has created an online community in which we can ask questions and find information without having to directly interact with people. This has changed the way businesses operate and will continue to aid us in the future.
We used to hold meetings and have community gatherings, but now we are advised not to do so. This doesn't mean we can't uphold a strong communication with the people around us.
If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding property restoration or Covid-19 disinfecting, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Redondo Beach. We are happy to be of service! 310-939-9293

SERVPRO Here To Help Relay For Life
Attention all Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Manhattan Beach residents... Join us on April of 2020 to help for a good cause. Our community will come together at the 2020 Relay For Beach Cities and collectively work toward defeating cancer.
Being able to witness cancer survivors tell their stories, seeing the supporting families, and BEING a supporting family member just makes you think about what is super important in life.
The funds raised through Relay For Life will help us to not only honor survivors and remember loved ones, but also provide free services that cancer patients and caregivers rely on every single day. This years event is expected to bring together more than 400 people... With your help we can spread the word and all come together as one!

Are You Ready?
The Redondo Beach Fire Department C.E.R.T. Academy will take place April 19 through June 16 and is now accepting applications.
The Redondo Beach Fire Department C.E.R.T. Academy began in April 1996, with overwhelming success. To date, over 1000 individuals have received training. The C.E.R.T. concept is based on increasing disaster preparedness and awareness within the community by having a core group of trained individuals capable of assisting themselves, their family and their neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster.
Although Fire and Police emergency service personnel are the best trained and equipped to handle disasters, they will not be able to help everyone in post disaster response and recovery. You can make the difference by using the training you will receive to save lives and protect property. Are you ready?
Saving water, recycling, helping our community and do our part for the world
Education for water recycling
Southern California Drought became a history in 2017. The blessing of rain was plenty during fall, and winter 2016 and spring of 2017, but this past fall and our present winter do not look promising and we face another lack of water in the future. The good news is we all got better in saving water usage in our homes and our yards.
Nevertheless, we can become better by being able to use rainwater with some education.
West Basin Municipal Water District is hosting an event at Redondo Beach Performing Art Center teaching residents how to harvest and use rainwater for irrigation, as well as how to legally and safely reuse water in the washer to wash 2 loads instead of one, and save!
If you missed the event there is still the book "Greywater Green Landscape" that can help catch up with the subject knowledge.
Although water shortage is already a global issue around the world, we as member of this beautiful and blessed area of Southern California even with the knowledge of the fact that our water reservoirs are still full from last year's rain, feel the importance to be involved in helping ourselves and each other, and the world to save, save and save this valuable, vital element of life.
In the past couple of decades, the fact that lots of single family homes were rebuilt to newer construction, using the land to build bigger homes already saves water. The new plumbing, bathroom and kitchen equipment and supplies help reduce wasting water. New constructions are ongoing in the area. Recent rebuilt of eastern areas of Redondo, Manhattan and Hermosa Beach where parcels have bigger land is going to be further beneficial for the cause.
Part of each beautiful home whether older or newe constructions in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach is still greenery because we all love outdoor living and green is beautiful.

Vandalism Tips from SERVPRO of Redondo Beach
"Vandalism is not a victimless crime."
Regardless of which city or town you’re in, you'll likely find signs of graffiti and vandalism. It can be found on commercial property, residential property, strip malls, public transportation and billboards. Graffiti is done in all sorts of ways too; like paint, spray paint, etching and markers, which makes removing graffiti difficult.
Start by determining what type of product was used and the material of the surface that was vandalized. The following removal options work the best at removing spray paint, stencils, shoe polish and markers.
Scrape away the graffiti with a razor blade, or try paint thinner and rinse clean.
Sand blasting or power washing are the best options. You can also opt for chemical graffiti remover such as “Goof Off” Pro Strength Removers .
Apply a small amount of paint remover to the surface, then rinse with water.
Just a little bit of chemical solvents will remove graffiti. Use caution as you do not want to remove the vinyl.
Apply solvents and run it out with sandpaper or steel wool. Power washing will also do the job.
With whichever method you decide to use, test a small area before proceeding with the entire surface.
