Being Involved:

Joe McCann and his team at SERVPRO of Irwindale and Baldwin Park pride themselves in being involved in the local community. As an owner of three SERVPRO franchises, serving the Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties, Joe likes  to get involved with multiple city and community organizations as a way to stay connected and to give back.

Since December of last year, in a partnership with the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI), we have been driving our box trucks to help deliver Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to hospitals throughout Los Angeles County supporting first responders dealing with the Pandemic. We also partnered with the San Dimas Rotary to help transport food collected in a food drive to points of distribution. In another Rotary project, SERVPRO of Irwindale and Baldwin Park proudly offered to act as a drop off location for House of Ruth, a shelter located in Pomona for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence.

This month, Joe’s sales team is collecting monetary donations for the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. A non-profit, located in Pasadena that is dedicated to fire and burn injury education. Each year, for the last 35 years, the AARBF has hosted their Champ Camp: a week long summer camp for burn survivors, ages 5-17. We invite you to explore the link below and consider a donation!

A Trip Down Memory Lane

ServPro Truck SERVPRO Irwindale/Baldwin Park Here to Serve.

In 2019, SERVPRO Irwindale / Baldwin Park had a business owner in Pasadena contact us after he discovered a leak from the water supply line to the coffee maker located in the server area. This leak affected the server area, the hallway, and three dining rooms. Drew Weaver, the Production Manager at SERVPRO of Glendora/ San Dimas, met the General Manager at the job site. Drew scoped the project and updated the General Manager on what to expect in the mitigation process. Soon after, our technicians arrived at the job site and began manipulating contents from the affected areas and extracting water. Water was extracted from the server area and hallway. Fortunately, these areas were hard surfaced which made it easier for cleanup. The remaining affected areas were commercial grade, glued down carpet. These areas were extracted multiple times to remove as much water as possible. Once extraction was complete, the technicians sanitized the affected area and wiped all contents. SERVPRO technicians utilized twenty fans and three dehumidifiers to effectively dry out the area. 

When it comes to our customer service, we do everything in our power to make sure you get the best service possible. Because of our quick response and restoration/ clean up time, we were able to attack the situation and restore the damaged area within hours. The general manager was satisfied with SERVPRO's restoration/ cleanup service. Alexander Steakhouse in Pasadena minimized their loss of business use by acting fast and calling SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park to expedite their drying needs. The general manager stated that he was elated with the professionalism and promptness of our team. He would definitely use our services again in the future.

Coordinating with LACI

For the past few months, SEVRPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park has been coordinating with LACI, Los Angeles CleanTech Incubator, to transport manufactured face shields to hospitals throughout Los Angeles County. In April of 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic was in full swing, the LACI organization quickly jumped into action. They utilized the Advanced Prototyping Center (APC) to manufacture face shield donations for healthcare workers. This collaboration brought together organizations such as the Los Angeles Public Library’s Octavia Lab, Los Angeles County’s Youth@Work program, Goodwill of Southern California, City of Baldwin Park, the Greater Los Angeles Hospital Registry, and others. LACI plans to donate 100,000 shields by June 1st, 2021. As of February 19th, 2021, LACI was able to deliver over 42,000 face shields to doctors and nurses working in 25 different LA County Hospitals, including:

  • Community Hospital of Huntington Park
  • Long Beach Medical Center
  • Adventist Health Glendale
  • MLK Community Hospital
  • Lakewood Regional Medical Center
  • Sherman Oaks Hospital
  • Valley Presbyterian Hospital
  • Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center
  • White Memorial Hospital
  • Centinela Hospital Medical Center
  • Monterey Park Hospital
  • Mission Community
  • Whittier Hospital
  • Beverly Hospital

Recycled Material and Incorporating the Youth

The face shield design was originally tested by ER doctors at Cedar Sinai and helps prevent infectious droplets from entering the facial area. Additionally, these shields are designed so that they may be reused from one to five years. LACI works to recycle almost all plastic remnants leftover from manufacturing into 3D print filament that is then used in 3D printers, as opposed to being thrown away. 

The LA Country Youth@Work program helps place youth in a paid job that leads to a long-term career pathway. The youth involved in this program have helped assemble and box face shields, creating jobs for over 140 people. LACI has also introduced these youth to their APC Fellowship Program, a paid fellowship that provides technical training, interpersonal skills, and industry-recognized certifications to succeed in the green economy. Due to the shortage of many entry-level employment opportunities, LACI organizers say that is grateful for the opportunity to provide paid employment and learning opportunities.

SERVPRO Delivery Trucks = More Faceshield Deliveries

At the beginning of 2021, SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park’s Sales Manager, Doug Beach, connected with a member of the LACI organization at a community meeting and asked how we could help with the efforts. Previously, the Los Angeles Library had been coordinating deliveries whenever possible. Now, with the help of SERVPRO’s huge box trucks, we are helping make deliveries of over 50 boxes of face shields every other Thursday, sometimes twice in one week. All shipments consist of 50 boxes containing 100 face shields. Each delivery contains 5,000 shields per delivery. Peyton Russell, Sales and Marketing Representative for SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park accompany Doug on these deliveries and takes photos/videos of the deliveries, something that seldom happened before. Additionally, Ms. Russell and Mr. Beach help to load and unload the face shields at the facilities, track the delivery forms, and persist in social media efforts for the cause.

When disaster strikes, SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park is there to help. Our owner, SERVPRO Joe, believes in giving back to the community and making a difference whenever we can.

Giving You The Answers You Need

5/6/2020 (Permalink)

Let’s assume you have just experienced a flood, fire, or sewer spill in your home or business.

How do you find a company you can trust to do a professional job at a fair price? 

This question is raised thousands of times every day across the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles Basin by those affected by a disaster that’s caused property damage.

The short answer is, this is a good question.  If you don’t already have a positive experience with a restoration company, you will probably rely on an online search or get somebody you know to refer a company based on their experience.  In any case, you are going to have to take a chance and choose a restoration company you hope will address your problem as though it was their property.

SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park may be able to answer some of the more obvious questions you will be asking:

  1. Will you work with my insurance company?Answer, Yes.  We work with all major Insurance Carriers
  2. Will your charges be fair? – Answer, Yes.  We follow Insurance Industry Billing Guidelines to streamline the estimating process.  These charging schedules are published and help assure your insurance will review and approve our estimates quickly so we can get to work faster.
  3. Are you insured and licensed to do restoration?  Answer, Yes.  SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park is a corporation which is licensed and bonded to do restoration and reconstruction.  We carry all Liability, Workmans Comp, and Vehicle Insurance as required by law.

There are lots of choices if you are choosing a restoration contractor.  There are several good companies and there are many who can do the basic work.  Not all restoration businesses have the equipment, products and training to handle more complex or larger jobs, and not all restoration companies will stand behind their commitment to customer satisfaction and service quality.

Advanced Equipment, Skilled Technicians, SERVPRO Helps Irwindale Area Homeowners with Cleanup and Restoration

6/24/2019 (Permalink)

You Have Come to the Right Place for Irwindale Restoration Services--Your Local SERVPRO Office!

Why SERVPRO Is an Irwindale Disaster Recovery Industry Leader 

Disasters rarely give Irwindale homeowners much warning. Whether the emergency involves water, fire, mold, or storm damage, it can make a house unpleasant and uncomfortable. Severe losses of any kind or failure to address less catastrophic harm quickly might move the problems with your home past inconvenience to causing so much damage that your dwelling is uninhabitable. Our team of disaster recovery experts can get things back on track fast and to the highest standards.

Water Loss
The risk of water damage in your Irwindale home climbs with exposures to aging plumbing, poorly-maintained appliances, extreme weather, and simple bad luck. A few minutes of inattention causes a tub to overfill, a cracked dishwasher hose loosens from an open supply line connection, or open windows allow a windy downpour to splash onto your hardwood floors. These types of scenarios and countless others are among those our managers and crews count among our company’s extensive resume.
 
Training, experience, and top-notch equipment are why SERVPRO should be your first call when a water crisis strikes. Our team of managers and technicians master the best practices for water damage mitigation and remediation through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC) training. Over the past dozen years, our owners and employees gained hands-on experience, implementing strategies that bring the deterioration caused by water incursion to a halt, readying the property for restoration after the moisture is gone.
 
Our service vehicles carry all the equipment needed for water loss remediation. Submersible pumps and truck-mounted water extractors rapidly remove standing water. Thermal imaging and moisture metering devices help us locate hidden pockets of water and provide data to establish reasonable structural drying goals.  In the hands of our skilled employees, the air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers used during the drying phase bring moisture levels to normal.    
 
Fire Damage
The risk factors that can lead to Irwindale fire damage run the gamut from a candle too close to a curtain to fraying electrical cords to boiled over grease to lint in a dryer and much more. Although many things might be the source of a fire’s ignition, the initial response from firefighters is the same -- chemical extinguishers and large quantities of water. When the fire is out, however, the fire department returns your home for you to plan and manage the next steps.
 
Homeowners dealing with the aftermath of a fire need professional assistance with a range of tasks. The first is usually the firefighting water removal for safety reasons. Slip and fall accidents can injure you and your family and are a concern for disaster responders as well. Electrical shock is also an issue until the space is dried out. Then an experienced remediation project manager needs to complete an assessment of the damage done and lay out a project plan for certified technicians to implement. In the case of a more minor house fire, an SMR SERVPRO marketing rep can evaluate the conditions and act accordingly.
 
One step following the next is why SERVPRO is the answer to your fire damage restoration needs. Our technicians are multi-certified, capable of removing the firefighting water and then moving on to cleaning fire residues. We match cleaning products, methods, and tools with the different types of soot encountered throughout your home. Final remediation includes disinfecting surfaces and deodorizing spaces.
 
If the fire caused significant charring, requiring demolition, repairs, and rebuilding, SERVPRO can continue the project to completion. We hold a contractor's license for the state of California, General Contractor License #: 944464 and California State License Board (CSLB) #: 944464 and are prepared to restore your home to preloss condition.
 
Mold Remediation
Mold spores are constant yet invisible companions to residents of Irwindale, but unless specific conditions are present, they pose little concern. They float in the air and settle on surfaces, waiting to encounter a bit of moisture. When they absorb the water, they begin growing, eventually becoming rapidly multiplying colonies that spread over surfaces made of or coated with organic matter, including wood and the cellulose that covers drywall and ceiling tile. Even non-porous surfaces with bits of organic material clinging like soap scum on tile or mirror can grow mold.
 
Mold remediation in Irwindale is one of our specialties, which is why SERVPRO should be your first call when you even suspect mold damage. Signals can be dark staining on walls or ceilings or a musty smell. Because mold can damage building materials and irritate susceptible individuals, it is essential that professional remediation occurs. Complete mold removal is impossible, but we use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol to ensure safety and achieve the most successful results.
 
We contain the moldy area, using negative pressure air scrubbers to complete an airlock barrier system. Mechanical scrubbing and brushing and gentle abrasion of soba blasting remove the mold from most surfaces. Technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and bag moldy residues and vacuum floors and surfaces with HEPA-filtered equipment to clear the area and prevent spread to the rest of your home. Final steps include EPA-registered disinfectant with an option to coat surfaces with an antimicrobial primer/sealer to inhibit mold regrowth. Moisture control also helps prevent future infestations.
 
Storm Damage
When high winds and heavy rain batter your Irwindale home shingles can rip loose, exterior walls can develop holes, and doors and windows can break. Overland flooding and the precipitation pouring into your house cause catastrophic damage if not remediated swiftly. We respond 24/7, with crews arriving as soon as possible.
 
Securing the breaches in the exterior of your home in Irwindale is storm damage task number one, followed by flood water containment and disposal. Our technicians train in the evaluation of water contamination categories, taking specific steps when collecting and discarding Category 2 and 3 waters as they are the most tainted. Mudslides and excessive silt in waters draining from higher elevations around the community require special handling, which is why SERVPRO prepares for this complication.
 
Our storm responders are familiar with the wide range of pathogens, chemicals, and other waste that can flow into your home during and after the rains and winds. If a sewer pipe backs up because municipal drainage systems are overwhelmed human waste, including blood and feces-borne pathogens can be a risk. Our technicians use EPA-registered cleaners and disinfectants to clean and sanitize storm-damaged spaces. Structural drying proceeds using our commercial-grade air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. Our training and experience, as shown by Biohazard Contractor License #: TSW 530, assures you of a safe and secure home.
 
Rebuilding services from SERVPRO streamline the restoration process after storm damage. Our team can do it all, avoiding the need to hire separate contractors task by task.
 
SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park stands ready to help with any disaster confronting your family home. Call us at (626) 337-3374 to schedule an assessment, giving us a chance to showcase our industry best practices to restore your home.

Want to Step Up Your Water Damage Remediation Situation in Irwindale? You Need To Read This First

If your home is facing water damage, many items can be affected. Contact SERVPRO for an assessment and effective remediation services.

Why SERVPRO Removes Some Items and Leaves Others During Water Damage Mitigation in Irwindale

When we work on a house in the Irwindale area, our specialists apply the knowledge and skills they gained through IICRC training. Much of this knowledge involves information that people usually never need. Because of this, we understand that many of our customers have questions about why we do certain things the way we do while working on their properties.

One of the questions we hear from customers is why do SERVPRO specialists dispose of some items and not others during water damage mitigation in Irwindale. The answer is that we look at several factors on most items, and only a few on others. Some of your belongings become damaged almost immediately when they become saturated with water. These items include furniture pieces made of particle board, as well as flooring made of wood-based products.

Other times we look at the amount of damage sustained. We compare this to the replacement costs for that item. Replacement costs also include the expense of installing the materials. When cleaning or refurbishing carries a lower price tag, we choose that option over replacing the materials.

Wood floors made from real wood lumber can look like they did before the incident that threatened your home with water damage. SERVPRO technicians can undo the damage and save the floor from permanent damage and keep the customer from needing to replace a very costly item.

Partially damaged structural components like drywall cost little compared to others but SERVPRO cuts costs wherever possible. Cutting above areas of a damaged wall means we must only replace the sections cut away. After removing the wet drywall, we can bring in new sections and cut them to size.

SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park knows how to keep costs down during water damage mitigation and still restore your property, so it looks "Like it never even happened." again. Call us at (626) 337-3374 to make sure your home is protected from water damage at a reasonable cost.

When is the Right Time to Start Water Removal in Your Baldwin Park Home?

4/7/2019 (Permalink)

Water leaks can quickly escalate and cause water damage to your kitchen. Contact our SERVPRO team to mitigate the situation.

Why SERVPRO's Teamwork Helps with Rapid Water Removal in Baldwin Park

When your pipes break and send water gushing into your Baldwin Park home's kitchen, you need an immediate response. Depending on the diameter of the broken pipe's diameter, hundreds of gallons of water can submerge your floors in a very short period. You need a company who can fix the problem and protect your home.

Saving homes from increased damage is why SERVPRO trains their employees to work together as teams, including when water removal in Baldwin Park becomes a necessity. Our ability to work together is enhanced by our ongoing training in the latest restoration methods, as well as refresher courses on more rarely needed techniques. This specialized knowledge keeps us always ready to serve our customers when they need mitigation services the most.

Removing water with our truck-mounted pumps means we can drain off the water at the floor's level. The pumps we use can be submerged and suction off the water until the floor is once again visible. Removing water that sits in depressions in your floor with small-sized wands helps eliminate any water that became trapped like water does in the shallows at a beach.

Mops and buckets help remove additional moisture, as do our air movers that work to lift water up and into the air so our desiccant machines can grab hold of the water vapor and trap it in its tank. The way we work helps protect your property from the development of more severe damage that takes place when water remains in contact with the interior of a home.

Initial contact between water and your home's interior does little damage to many materials. However, when water remains present, the changes brought on by its presence snowball rapidly. Drywall turns soft and falls apart where saturated with other areas quickly showing signs of mold growth. Wood can also swell and warp, altering your home's structure. Calling SERVPRO as soon as possible can stop these things from happening and save your home from the majority of things that can go wrong.

SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park is located nearby and always ready to serve those living in the Irwindale, Baldwin Park, Vincent, and surrounding areas. Contact us at our 24-hour service line, (626) 337-3374, so we can send the skilled teams your emergency requires to make everything “Like it never even happened.”

Flood Damage Affects Buildings of All Sizes in Baldwin Park

This may look like an easy fix but it is not. Call SERVPRO today to help fix this fast and efficiently.

Commercial Flood Damage Restoration for Apartments in Baldwin Park

A natural weather event can cause flooding to your property block resulting in angry tenants and, if not remedied quickly, legal challenges. As the landlord of a block of flats restoring the ground levels quickly can often go beyond the scope of your regular janitorial team, unusually where cinder blocks have prolonged exposure to standing water. Using a professional commercial restoration service can save you unnecessary expenses and keep your tenants happy. 


Apartment blocks with commercial flood damage in Baldwin Park rely on an immediate response unit to help limit losses in an emergency. Tenants can quickly become agitated by the shutting off of power or standing water inside the property. What makes life more difficult is that cinder blocks typically used in the construction of apartments have open cells that can quickly absorb moisture.

SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day via our emergency call-line and can send an emergency response team to your property immediately upon receiving notification of loss. Our technicians set to work straight away removing hazards, creating a safe workspace for general contractors and restoring power. Wet cinder blocks can cause permanent damages especially during the winter months where the risk of water freezing and subsequently expanding, can require demolition if left unchecked.

Using industrial drilling equipment and our extensive expertise, we can get air circulating into wall cavities while draining excess moisture from the cinder block. By using a nonpenetrating moisture meter, we can efficiently detect whether a wall cavity is completely dry or may need more advanced equipment to help reduce secondary damages. Taking this measurement can be the difference between sustaining permanent losses or restoring a building to its preloss conditions. In cases where cinder blocks are not sufficiently dry, we can use injectidry systems or other advanced pieces of equipment like desiccant dehumidifiers to get the job done.

In a natural weather emergency, you need a service that can act fast, contact SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park immediately at (626) 337-3374.

Why SERVPRO's Advanced Training Helps During Water Removal In Irwindale

If a pipe bursts and water leaks into your Irwindale home, you need to take immediate action because extended exposure to water or moisture causes untold problems in many structures. In most cases, the lack of resources or skills holds people back from taking the necessary steps leading to substantial repair costs. You can avoid such an outcome by involving a certified WRT, Water Restoration Technician, immediately you notice the problem.

Responding within the first 24-48 hours helps guarantee a better outcome from the effort put into water removal in Irwindale because taking longer creates an opportunity for mold growth. At SERVPRO, we are always available to respond to your call since we have skeleton crews monitoring operations during off hours. Such immediate response makes a huge difference. Also, our highly trained technicians can also advise you on which steps to take before we arrive at your premises to minimize damage.

Removing water from the property is a challenging prospect because you have to remove all traces including what may have spilled into concealed spaces such as wall cavities. Having the right equipment for detection and removal eases the burden. Our SERVPRO technicians use thermal cameras to check for water problems behind drywall or other concealed spaces. That way, we can decide whether to drill holes, teardown the area or use other techniques learned through ASD, Applied Structural Drying, training.

Removing the moisture left on materials after extracting standing water is essential. Doing such removal at the right speed is also crucial to avoid other problems. For example, drying wood too fast can lead to cracking while a low drying rate can allow mold to grow. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters and thermo-hygrometers to monitor the drying process allowing us to use the right number of air movers and dehumidifiers. Monitoring also helps determine when to move the equipment to balance the process.

You should not worry when there is a water spill in your property. Call SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park to assist. You can reach us at (626) 337-3374 any time.
