So you run a business out of a commercial space; so do we! Most business owners rent from a commercial property manager, but others own their own space. Commercial buildings are unique in their construction and therefore present their own unique challenges to remediate. The most common sites of water intrusion are roofs (usually flat roofs) and exterior walls. Because weatherproofing can fail over time, you may not notice a leak until there is mold. That’s where we can help. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville services all of El Dorado County and parts of Sacramento County. We will come out to conduct a free estimate and inspection of your water or mold damage. The impact to your business and employees is our first concern.

Fire Damage Rancho Cordova

Storm Damage Fire Damage Rancho Cordova This customer had a fire that burned plastic. Plastics make oily soot and will streak and stain if not cleaned appropriately.

California wildfires make an appearance every year. Big or small, we all feel the impact. Smoke and soot are particulate matter that is on the surface of your items and your home. The best way to get rid of smoke odor is to physically remove the particulate matter from the surface of the material, whether with dry wiping or wet washing. Never re-paint without cleaning first! Different types of soot require different cleaning methods, so make sure you give us a call before doing any cleaning yourself. After physical removal of the particulate matter, we will nano-deodorize the home using hydroxyl or ozone treatment.
