Keep your Business Mold-Free
Mold grows anywhere there is moisture and oxygen. The mold spores are invisible to humans, so you may not even know when mold takes over.
Mold grows in places you cannot even see, and it sometimes grows increasingly worse before it’s noticeable. Mold, however, pollutes the air and can threaten the structural integrity of a structure.
When mold grows on a commercial property, it can be devastating for business owners as they must shut down operations to decontaminate the business. These tips will help prevent mold from growing in your business.
Mold grows anywhere there is moisture and oxygen. The mold spores are invisible to humans, so you may not even know when mold takes over.
- Use a dehumidifier: It can be challenging to maintain proper humidity inside your business. To ensure 50% humidity, install commercial dehumidifiers throughout the property.
- Repair plumbing issues: As soon as you notice a leak in your business from a roof, pipe, or window, call a restoration company to mend the damages. The longer you wait, the higher the chance of mold growth.
- Ensure proper ventilation: If not properly maintained, mold will grow around HVAC systems. Mold spores can spread from vents, so a clean HVAC system will keep mold out.
- Stay Vigilant: It’s not easy to notice mold growth in its early stages. By inspecting your property frequently and monitoring high moisture levels, you can notice mold before it becomes a problem. Early signs of mold growth include stains on walls, smells, and marks on floors.
- Call a professional: If the mold has spread or you can’t find the origin of the problem, call a professional mold remediation company to assist you.

Returning Home: How to Remove the Smoky Smell from your Property
Deodorizing and sanitizing a home or business after a fire is not an easy task, and you should not have to be forced to do it yourself.
If you’ve ever been around a campfire or experienced an indoor fire, you’ll know exactly what that lingering smoky smell is like after the fire’s been put out. When you suffer from a home or business fire, it’s important to minimize as much of the remaining odor as possible before SERVPRO® of Simi Valley arrives. These tips will be helpful in maintaining the healthiest living conditions as possible after a fire occurs.
Tip 1: If safe, open any windows to increase airflow and circulation. Additionally, keep doors open to allow air to flow through and out of the structure.
Tip 2: Replace air filters. Toxic smoke particles and soot can become trapped in air filters, which results in unhealthy air being released after a fire. Replace the filters to avoid the spread of the odor.
Tip 3: Deep clean the affected areas. Kitchen counters, curtains, windows and carpets are commons places for smoke particles to stick after a fire. Target these areas to remove the remaining odor from smoke damage.

3 Facts About Water Damage
Additional inspections are performed after the water extraction process to confirm the extent damage has occurred.
Dealing with water damage is a nightmare. Uneasy questions about what to do, what insurance will cover, and what to save first will begin to pile up. When a pipe bursts or fire suppression system fails, life is put on hold until everything is dried and secured. That is not always the easiest of tasks.
Here are a few facts about the water restoration process to help educate you, and help in securing your property should a water damage disaster occur.
1. Water Type
Generally, water damage invades a property in (3) types: sewage, rainwater, and freshwater. Depending on the water type invading your property, it may need the expertise of a professional remediation company like SERVPRO®. It is critical when dealing with water damage to understand the source of the issue so as to safely remediate current damage and limit any potential future damage. If sewage water damage is suspected, a professional and experienced water damage restoration company will have the appropriate tools to return your property to it’s preloss condition safely and effectively.
2. Water Damage Continues After Extraction
It may be tempting to breathe a sigh of relief once water has been extracted from your property, however, be wary and know that moisture likes to hide. Additional inspections are performed after the water extraction process to confirm the extent damage has occurred. This helps to remove the potential for mold growth. Mold can cause damage to the structural components of a home, leading to serious consequences. Make sure a mold prevention expert inspects your property post clearance to ensure no mold growth has transpired.
3. Attic Spaces Are Cause for Concern
Most common water damage sources include roof leakage and gutters malfunctioning, meaning your attic is at a higher risk for water damage. Have your attic space inspected regularly by water damage professionals to make sure any small leak doesn’t turn into a serious problem.
If your home is flooded, or suspect of water damage, call SERVPRO® of Simi Valley (805) 522-2945. All forms of water damage require immediate attention to minimize further losses. We will help you stay safe and protect your assets.

Mold Can Grow Anywhere
Thermal imaging of water loss.
Mold can grow on any surface. It is most seen in places of high moisture or lower lighting such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements, cabinets, and near pipes or ducting. Behind drywall is one of the most regular placements to find mold as wood and drywall are excellent potential sources for growth. Ceilings with a lack of ventilation will accumulate moisture over time and can become an additional location for mold to grow. If the temperature is correct, and there are adequate amounts of moisture and oxygen, mold can grow.
Below are some typical ways mold can infiltrate your home or business.
- Constant Humidity – ensure to ventilate your home properly, especially during warmer months.
- Leaking Pipes in the Home – Mold behind drywall can also signify a faulty or broken pipe.
- Poorly Ventilated Homes – A dehumidifier will help humidity stay below a certain range.
- Leaking AC Unit – leaks anywhere on an AC unit can cause moisture to form and prevent the AC working correctly.
Make sure you have proper ventilation and low moisture content to limit the potential that mold will develop. Mold is a common issue, and many businesses and homeowners have to deal with it. It is important to get the source inspected by professionals and a professional remediation company to perform the remediation work. Call SERVPRO of Simi Valley once you need remediation work performed.
Choosing the Right Water Restoration

A professional water damage company offers many benefits to both business owners and homeowners. Licensed work is one of the biggest advantages of hiring a water damage restoration company as they are licensed under local government. This means that their methods of restoration have been reviewed and are legally accounted for. Post work being performed, should you find some problem with the electrical restoration or other physical repair work, then you can easily locate the agency and request additional repair work. Government Agency registration is one of the most important aspects of a professional company and is of immense benefit to clients.
- Reputation is important! Review the online reputation of the selected water damage restoration company you go with. Do not choose a company under the radar, but one with an established presence on the web and in the community.
- Tried and true, effective, and fast protocols. Immediate action during emergencies proves the reliability of any emergency remediation service.
- Well established and fully geared. SERVPRO of Simi Valley has the infrastructure to handle any sized loss, commercial or residential.
- Best Working Tools and Resources. One advantage of a licensed water damage company is that they are likely to have access to the best tools of the trade. This is because a licensed agency will be able to apply for authorial permission to get some of the best water damage control equipment that is available in the market. All in all, opting for a well renowned water damage company is a sure way to restore your home effortlessly.
Whether it is a natural flooding incident or some other flooding damage, water damage poses some major risks to your home. By hiring a professional water damage company, you will not only minimize risks but also ensure you the restoration services are handled correctly.

Why Use Professional Mold Remediation
Mold on ceiling.
When searching for the best way to carry out mold remediation services, hire a trustworthy professional to perform the mold remediation for you. Professional mold remediation is about results, giving value that not only corrects problems but also prevents them.
- Professional Mold Testing
One common cause of mold is from a combination of humidity and air conditioning. When HVAC systems try to cool down a home or business amidst humidity, air condenses inside vents. If mold occurs in your home, the source needs to be uncovered, the problem areas you don’t see require investigation, and the enlistment of professionals to remove that mold for good. From the onset, address the problem right by contacting a mold remediation expert. Rest assured that our highly trained technicians will deliver a proper mold assessment.
- Address the Mold Problem Right
When you’ve found a professional mold remediation company you can place absolute confidence in, the level of experience shown will be immediate. Our Step One involves completely assessing and documenting the moisture problem. Step Two is to properly treat and clean all affected areas.
- Helpful Tips
When hiring a mold removal specialist, you’ll receive multiple tips to prevent future mold problems and secure safe and proper ventilation. As mold problems require specialized expertise, you’ll want a good communicator in the field who is both dependable and honest. Meet the professionals at SERVPRO, who have serviced thousands of satisfied business owners and home owners.
- Save Money
Saving money is important, especially when it comes spending on repairs. The longer a problem lies unaddressed, the costlier it is going to be when it finally is fixed.

Reducing Fire Damage
Reducing fire damage is one of the first considerations after a fire in a home or a fire in a business. Commercial fire damage can greatly affect the ability of a business to continue operations. In order to recover as much value as possible from a property that has undergone fire damage, smoke damage, and soot damage, a restoration company like SERVPRO should be contacted immediately after the premises are secure. The fire cleanup team can assist in evaluating the damage to the property and listing the items that are present.
They can also perform fire damage restoration and offer an estimate onsite. The fire cleanup will also involve drying up all the water that firefighters may flood the premises with in order to put out the fire. This water can cause extensive water damage causing the growth of mold. A certified technician can dry out the property and prevent mold growth using industrial equipment that sometimes includes a water extractor, a dehumidifier, and an air current mover.
All surfaces are sanitized and cleaned after all the soot damage and smoke damage has been reversed. The fire clean-up team will also instruct property owners how to prevent commercial fire damage in the future. Any residual smoke smell will be ventilated until gone. If the smoke smell continues, chemical solutions like an ozone treatment or thermal fogging are also options depending on the needs of the property owner. Additional treatments may be needed weeks or even months after the initial incident.
Fire cleanup can be extremely daunting for someone who is shocked by a fire whether in a home or a fire at their business. However, fire damage restoration is normal for a fire cleanup specialist, even in the aftermath of commercial fire damage. A specialist who has the experience and the expertise to guide a property owner will ensure that fire damage is minimized as much as possible.
Should I File A Claim?
When you've had water or fire damage in your property one of the questions to ask is should I file a claim.
A claim whether how big or small gets on your record so it is important for a company like SERVPRO to perform a FREE damage assessment to you property to determine the scope of work. Once that claim is filed there is no turning back and that is why it is important to have a SERVPRO expert inspect the property for FREE to provide you the best guidance about your damages.
SERVPRO will perform a moisture mapping of the property to determine the extent of the damages or a fire damage inspection report to determine which areas of the property are affected.

Working From Home? Here Is Our Guide To Staying Productive And Being Successful
As coronavirus changes the daily lives of Americans, lately many of us get the privilege to work from home to be safe. There are certain perks to working from home. You officially have the shortest commute and your meetings do not happen in the conference room. But, if you are not careful, working from home can also come with some downsides. If you are the type to get distracted easily, do not worry, there is hope.
Here is our guide to staying productive. Want to know if they work? Well, this blog you are reading right now was written from home sweet home.
1. Get an office. Set aside a whole room or a portion of your home that is for all business and only business. Your bed would not be the ideal location to set up your office because that is where you sleep.
2. Get rid of background noise. Be aware of how productive you are while listening to music. Playing music all day helps some people while it can distract others. So, find out which one you are.
3. Break a sweat! Since gyms are shut down in California for a while due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak, make it apart of your job to set aside about 30 minutes to an hour to get your body moving at home. Working from home can reduce the amount of calories we burn in a day. You can still workout outside in nature. You could even throw on a workout video to your liking on YouTube. So, grab that jump rope, some light weights or both. No excuses.
4. Keep essentials in your workspace. Keep items such as snacks, coffee or a cozy sweater near your desk. This is a way to prevent you from getting up to grab something and encountering who-knows-what distractions around the house.
5. Know when to take a break. When your home is also your office, it can feel like you are always working. Decide when you are done for the day, and stick to it.
6. Communicate! Make sure to stay in communication with people throughout the day. Chat with colleagues, schedule phone meetings or even check in on Zoom. This will make you feel less lonely and it will also make you feel like an asset to the company you are working for.
7. Get Dressed. Keep your outfit casual and comfortable, but not in the pajama family. It might sound unnecessary, but you will feel more professional, and you will be prepared if a last-minute meeting comes up.
8. Keep things clean! Make sure to always have your workspace clean by the end of the day, so when you come back to it the next day, you are ready to work without clutter. Also doing this will help reduce trash from piling up.
9. Look at the perks of working from home. You are home during the day. Do you realize what that means? You save on gasoline because you don't have to drive to the office. Most importantly, you won't get anyone sick if you come to work with a sniffle. The more you enjoy working from home, the more you will enjoy your job. Now, get back to work!

Simi Valley is relatively close to Moorpark and Team Reed felt it was essential to be able to serve the adjacent communities with best in class service for fire, flood and mold remediation. Shortly after acquiring Simi Valley, Team Reed earned the Elite Designation of Large Loss Response Team which allows the Company to perform and assist neighboring franchises for large losses. With the acquisition of Simi Valley we also increase our packout facility to 30,000 square feet and increased our contents division. We are also involved with this city’s Chamber of Commerce and support them in any way they can when it comes to community activities. We are very proud of our work in the community particularly with the support of homeowners and business owners after the Thomas and Woolsey fires. If you ever experience water, fire, or mold damage call us any time and our friendly and professional staff will be available to help you.
