Cleaning SERVPRO of Anaheim West Cleans Office Space Never a down ay at SERVPRO of Anaheim West

Our hardworking warehouse and contents cleaning crew never have down time here at SERVPRO of Anaheim West. If they are not going from job site to job site they are at our office site making sure everything is in top shape.

Our contents crew usually have a day to day of working on a variety of job sites. They will arrive to a job site and start to organize, separate and pack out contents from a person's home or office. This requires having both the knowledge and experience to be able to tell what is potentially a total loss and what can be saved. Everything from large furniture pieces to tiny Knick knacks of collectables, our crew is well informed and well prepared to handle whatever might be on site.

Once a job is packed out, we bring the contents back to our office for cleaning and/or disposal. We take every precaution to make sure that the contents are well wrapped and kept safe during the transportation from job site to our warehouse and back again. Contents are fully inspected and cleaned so upon return they are practically new. Give SERVPRO of Anaheim West a call for your next contents or cleaning at 714-533-1989 or visit our website here.

What is Lurking in Your Anaheim Office Air Ducts?

Cleaning What is Lurking in Your Anaheim Office Air Ducts? Before and After your Anaheim West Air Ducts.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the ventilation system is often the biggest issue when it comes to poor unhealthy air quality. Most offices HVAC systems have been operating for long periods of time without any attention for maintenance or cleaning. This is a HUGE mistake, since dirty air ducts can circulate foul odors and spread contaminants such as mold and dust throughout the building.

  • SERVPRO of Anaheim West provides routine inspection and cleaning services for these HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) systems you often don’t think twice about. Unlike many other duct cleaning services, we think about HVAC systems all the time and use a Portable Ventilation & Air Duct Clean System to help example ductwork. This allows us to provide a clean sweep to remove years and years of dust, grime, mold and dirt. The process itself is rather easy:
  • The process starts with using patented equipment including a roto-scraper, which will automatically adapt to any air duct shape and diameter while traveling throughout the system. It removes unwanted debris as it moves through the duct system.
  • Next, we perform a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection to transfer debris out of the air ducts and into a large 16-gallon container.
  • As air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, roughly 99.97% of particles are cleaned from the air stream.
  • An optional process provided would be to add a sealant or coating product that can be sprayed to attack and address any foul odors or microbial concerns.
  • Finally, any filters for the ducts can be either cleaned or completely removed and replaced with new filters.

It is important to understand that SERVPRO of Anaheim West offers this service with customers in mind for several preventative reasons. One includes the fact that during a fire these unclean air ducts give more fuel for the fire that is engulfing your home or office. With clean air ducts we can help give your home or office building a better chance at containing fire to a centralize location. So the next time you smell something uneasy in your home or office, give SERVPRO of Anaheim West a call at (714)-533-1989 so we can schedule an air duct inspection. You can also contact us here.

Taking Care of Anaheim West Antique Glass, Crystal & Various Items

Cleaning Taking Care of Anaheim West Antique Glass, Crystal & Various Items From saving clothing onsite, cleaning soot from ceilings/walls, to boxing up and sending pack precious items, we do it all.

When it comes to disaster, we at SERVPRO of Anaheim West understand and are all too familiar with the fact that fires don’t just affect a person’s physical home or place of business, but also the contents within it that are also tied to a person’s emotional state of being. It is why when we are chosen to pack out, clean, restore and pack back items from a person’s home or business, we take extra care of each and every item. We go the extra mile to pay attention to items such as antique glass or crystal. The reasoning behind this is that during a disaster, like a fire, the exposure of glasses and crystal to high heat can reduce the stability of the items to stay in form. Lifting an item without checking it for cracks or damages can cause further damage than the fire itself. Items such as the inherited family couch or your favorite t-shirt are cleaned according to the fabric involved and not just brushed aside with soap, water and Fabreeze. We use washing chemicals that are hypoallergenic, pet friendly, child and elderly safe and ensure that each item we send back to you is clean in both smells and stains.

When we arrive on a scene we take pictures of everything we see as we see it initially. From there, for contents, we take a photo inventory of where items are, where the items are being placed in certain marked boxes, and then we take them back to our warehouse for cleaning and restoration. When we do this, we do so at an even pace because there are times we must slow down in order to review individual items for cleaning. For example, a crystal or antique glasses that are lined with or involve gold will be placed aside and cleaned differently than some of the other items. Gold items are never cleaned with ammonia, due to the fact that it will ruin the item entirely. We’ve been known to restore dining room sets, original pieces of artwork and even cleaned and stored grand pianos while the home or place of business was in the process of getting back to “Like it never even happened” status.

Even though there are a variety of ways to assist in packing out and packing back contents for a person’s home or place of business, we at SERVPRO of Costa Mesa like to be on the safe, healthy and cautious side for all your items. We understand that sometimes the value of an item isn’t the money it cost, but the sentiment tied to it that makes it priceless. Beyond items we also offer a variety of cleaning services you can view here. We hope that for any future contents needs, you consider SERVPRO of Anaheim West. If you have questions feel free to give us a call at 949-533-1989 or online  here.
