Mold is an occurring substance that is present in nature. That means there are always some mold spores present in your business premises. The problem comes when those mold spores find the right conditions to form a colony. Once a colony grows, it is easy for spores to split off from the main colony and find a new place to grow, causing a series of mold patches to spring up in your shop or office.
The fungus thrives in dark, damp places. That makes crawl spaces an ideal home for mold. If you have mold growing in your Sacramento business premises crawl space, you will need SERVPRO of East Sacramento/West Arden-Arcade mold removal service. But how do you know there is mold in the crawl space of your business?
- Use your nose – if the crawl space smells musty, there might be a problem.
- Shine a torch in and see if there are any visible mold patches.
- Look for damp patches or signs of mold on the floors or walls near the crawl space.
SERVPRO technicians can seal off your crawl space and then tackle the mold using remediation techniques that include but are not limited to: hepa vacuuming and spraying with antimicrobial.
If you are concerned about crawl space mold removal, call SERVPRO of East Sacramento/West Arden-Arcade at 916-285-7257.

What do you do if a fire breaks out in your commercial business building? You may be overwhelmed with what to do next and who to call. Keep in mind the main focus points during commercial fires. There are things that need to be done before and after a mitigation and restoration company arrives at the scene. What are the three main points to focus on after the fire has been put out? The three points are who do you call, doing nothing, and securing the building.
Who Do You Call?
Two calls will be made. The first call will be to your insurance company who needs to be aware of the situation and what has happened to your building. They will provide you with a claim number and adjuster information who will be handling this fire loss claim.

Water Damage Commercial Office Building
Water damage to commercial building in Sacramento. Equipment placed to begin drying process.
What is a commercial building? It is a building that hosts business activities such as offices and warehouses.
SERVPRO of East Sacramento/West Arden-Arcade handled water damages throughout the Sacramento area. We have handled water supply lines bursting, days of rain, toilet overflows, and much more that could affect the structure of the commercial building.
Amidst construction, water had managed to enter the building from the roof, travel down the shafts, and affect several floors of the building. There was moisture on the drywall of the shaft. With no standing water to extract, our team had to develop a strategy to and place air movers to each affected level to dry out the venting shaft walls. Since each floor was open (just metal framing structure) and exposed to the outside air, no dehumidifiers were placed.
With every monitoring visit that SERVPRO of East Sacramento/West Arden-Arcade perform, we rearranged the equipment to help dry out the affected material faster. With desiccants set up, we fixed containment for some of the ducting.
As the days progressed, all material was showing progression in drying, and the shaft liner seemed to be drying down. Our moisture readings were low. Once all material was dried, we would remove equipment from the site.

Duct Cleaning Sacramento
Sick building syndrome can cause lower performance in your employees!
Have you ever heard of “sick building syndrome”? It’s a phenomenon in the workplace that that The National Institute of Health describes as a situation in which the occupants of a building experience acute health or comfort related effects that seem to be linked directly to the time spent in the building. Sick Building Syndrome is often attributed to poor indoor air quality, which is how inside air can affect a person's health, comfort, and ability to work.
Some Factors that Can Affect Air Quality
- Poor ventilation
- Temperature control problems
- Too high or too low humidity
- Recent remodeling
- Dust from renovation
- Cleaning supplies/pesticides
- Airborne chemicals
3 Lines of Defense Against Potential Exposure to Identified Hazards
- Eliminating the source: This would include removal, substitution, and enclosure of pollutant sources. This is considered the most effective method when applied in a practical manner. Listed below are a few ways you can eliminate the source of your poor air quality:
- HVAC Cleaning
- General dilution ventilation
- Mold Remediation
- Local exhaust
- Administrative Controls:
- Limiting exposure to pollutant, by means of scheduling
- Training employees about the sources and effects of pollutants under their control
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
- If elimination/engineering and administrative controls prove to be infeasible or insufficient, PPE should then be used to control exposure to indoor pollutants by use of respirators, gloves, protective clothing, eyewear, and footwear where necessary.

Our team here at SERVPRO of East Sacramento/West Arden-Arcade are committed to safety before anything else.

Apartment Building Cleanup
In this photo, you can see a heavily damaged apartment building hallway caused by a broken pipe.
In an apartment community residence will share walls from the sides and from above and below. When a water damage occurs, it can get out of hand quickly, since a water damage can affect multiple residences. You can never know when an emergency will occur, but it’s in your best interest as a property manager to always be prepared for anything. Taking these measures by the American Apartment Owners Association can help you prevent damage in the future.
- Inspect the property regularly. It is important to ask about repair needs and to check out major systems on a regular basis. If the problem is caught early, then damage can be minimized or avoided.
Water causes millions of dollars to the rental industry each year. Landlords in updated buildings are seeing damage due to the use of materials that aren’t holding up as expected. Most of the water damage is due to faulty plumbing, which can cause secondary damage like mold and other costly repairs, so it is important to inspect regularly.
- By acting early when you receive a repair request, then it can help save you money and keep the property in good condition.
- Pay attention to utility spikes. Whether you pay the utilities, or your tenant complains about a sudden increase, take it seriously. It is a warning sign that something may be spilling out. It can even signal a drug manufacturing operation which one of most costly repair jobs you will ever encounter.
- Watch the weather. Storms cause significant property damage, and lately we’ve been seeing some monsters. Once the surge is over, check for roof damage, clogged gutters, and poor drainage that may leak into the foundation. The best time to repair old and damaged roofs is when it’s dry.
- Encourage tenants to carry renters insurance. The main benefit: they won’t ask you to reimburse them for damage. The indirect benefit is making tenants aware of just how much they stand to lose if they are careless and cause damage to the property.
In addition to following these steps, making an emergency readiness plan today can help you tomorrow. The SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile serves as a quick reference of important building and contact information or can be an ideal supplement to any well-designed emergency preparedness or existing contingency program. Rather than simply reacting to disaster situations, most prefer proactive measures to establish a relationship with a restoration services company.

Apartment Water Damage
In this photo, our technician Daniel is wearing personal protective equipment before cleaning a contaminated bathroom in an apartment building.
In Sacramento and other areas in the valley, rain is a part of life. Being that we are surrounded by two large rivers, flooding can happen easily from weather, let alone all the ways that flooding can happen internally. (From blown water heaters, to burst pipes, we have seen it all!) When you are a landlord or a tenant when water damage hits, you may not know where to turn. It is important to know your rights in this situation.
If you are a property manager or landlord...
It is your responsibility to make sure that your property is habitable by its occupants. Water damage can easily lead to situations that are dangerous for the tenants’ health. If it is too dangerous to stay, then you must find them somewhere to live while work is being done. According to California Civil Code section 1941, the landlord is responsible for providing tenants with habitable living conditions and repair any problem that makes the property uninhabitable, including water damage, with the exception of problems caused by the tenant, guests, children, or pets.
Your property manager should be able to help you dry out the water from the building, although they are not required to cover the loss or damage of your personal items. Review your rental agreement carefully to determine who is responsible for your repairs. Hopefully, you have renter’s insurance, and your policy can cover the loss of any personal items damaged by water damage.
Preparation is Key
Water damage is every renter’s and property manager’s nightmare. It is best to know what to expect and how to protect yourself if it occurs. Having a relationship with a water restoration company can save your property more quickly, and SERVPRO of East Sacramento / West Arden Arcade is offering free Emergency Ready Plans for the upcoming year. Don’t let water damage take control of your life. Give us a call today at 916-285-7257.

Restaurant Clean Up
This job was dried and reconstructed by the end of the weekend! We are very proud of our work on this job.
Here at SERVPRO of East Sacramento / West Arden-Arcade, we have seen our share of difficult jobs from entire basement clean ups to flooded dance studios, but when we got the call to help clean up a local Sacramento restaurant, we didn’t know what was in store for us. When we arrived on scene, we saw buckets of water on the floor that had leaked through the intricate ceiling tiles from the apartment above. We had dried the apartment above this restaurant and quickly got to work on restoring the ceiling below.
