Owning a business in our community can be a lot of work! The hustle and bustle of our area, alongside the sheer competition, can make your job seem like more of a lifestyle than anything. We appreciate all that you do for our community, which is why we are here to help take some of the load off. 

Keeping your business clean, planning for disasters, addressing property damage and dealing with unexpected situations can derail your productivity and even hurt your long-term goals. 

SERVPRO of Wilshire Center is Here to Help® with all of that! We offer our full restoration and cleaning services to all of the businesses in the Koreatown area and beyond. 

We Can Handle Your Disaster

Disasters can happen in the blink of an eye, leaving you with serious damage and many unanswered questions. Manmade accidents like burst pipes or fires can happen quickly, while Mother Nature can be forceful and have a mind of her own at any point. No matter how your disaster occurs, our calm and collected team will take over to help you recover faster. 

We have extensive training in large-loss recovery, so we don’t want you to hesitate to call us even if you think your project is too large or too destructive. We will identify a project manager and different teams to tackle different parts of your restoration to ensure we are always on task and working towards your end goal of a full restoration. We will remove debris, clean and sanitize, and then get started on any necessary repairs. 

Staying Squeaky Clean 

We are also a leading expert when it comes to commercial cleaning projects! We know that you don’t have much free time, so why would you spend that time on cleaning your business? 

Let us do it instead! We can tackle all sorts of cleaning projects for you, including deep carpet cleaning, HVAC and vent cleaning, and even upholstery and drapery cleaning. 

We can even become your regular cleaning partner for routine deep-cleans of your property. We know you have a janitorial staff that handles your daily routine, but routine deep-cleans can ensure dust, dirt, grime and allergens are safely removed from your building and from the very air that you breathe. 

Biohazards and Dangerous Situations

We never expect to encounter potentially dangerous substances at work, but life is unpredictable! If you come upon a sewage leak at the back of your building or an accident occurs and there is blood on the floor, having a trained biohazard team handle the situation is always recommended. We have the training and safety gear to tackle the cleanup quickly and efficiently. 

We can also address any mold infestations that you discover on your property. Mold can grow quickly, and a few spores can turn into a colony in just a couple of days. Call us right away so we can contain the area, filter the air and tackle your mold remediation promptly. 

We would love to work together to help make your business the best it can be. Contact us day or night for immediate assistance.

We know that your main concern is getting your business operations back to normal as soon as possible after any catastrophe, but commercial water damage is much more complex than most problems experienced by businesses today. Categories of water can quickly change from non-hazardous to very dangerous quickly. Water can spread in almost any direction, including up if conditions are right, and remaining flood waters can instantaneously ruin some certain products with even minute amounts.

Commercial water damage presents unique challenges because of the environment involved. From warehouses storing agricultural products to leather processing plants, inventory protection, and worker safety is both important to any business. Different types of water can cause damage, and even the cleanest water, category 1, can turn into the worst, category 3 when contaminants are present. These can happen when clean water is mixed or combined with another source of category 3 water, even if it is not causing any damage by itself (such as sewer water) or when bags of previously dry substances such as fertilizers or pesticides become saturated, and their contents leach into the water.

The damage to your inventory can also rapidly multiply. When products at the bottom of a stack can be a conduit for water by wicking it upwards toward other product that has not been damaged, it’s common sense to get those products on top removed to a safer location. We have team members who can provide this service while our technicians work in other areas, protecting your business from increased inventory loss.

Stacked bags of concrete and other dry products that are designed to be mixed with water, oil, or other liquid just prior to use may seem to be in saleable condition until they are examined on their undersides where water has accumulated. These ruined items need to be removed and accounted for on inventory loss sheets. For insurance purposes, all products need to be re-inventoried and noted as to their condition before the conclusion of our restoration work.

After you've made the initial call to us, we can begin the restoration process. Returning your business to normal operations is important, and we understand the complexities involved in keeping your employees safe while protecting your business's bottom line.

Content Packout

5/10/2021 (Permalink)

If your business suffers water, fire, smoke or mold damage, the cleanup and restoration experts at SERVPRO are the premier choice for content restoration and pack-out.

Content Pack-Out

There are scenarios that require business content removal and relocation for prompt and thorough cleaning and restoration. If a business suffers fire and smoke damage, for example, it is often easier, more secure and cost-efficient to take certain contents to another location for restoration work.

SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz provides complete pack-out services. We will carefully and respectfully take the contents of your home or business to be restored, packed, and delivered to an off-site facility. The pack-out process involves meticulous documentation to ensure your items receive the best possible care, including photo documentation, identification numbers and detailed lists.

  • Artwork
  • Documents
  • Books
  • Photographs
  • VHS and DVD media
  • Clothing
  • Electronics (televisions, computers, stereos, etc.)
  • Furniture
  • Rugs
  • Retail Inventory


Meanwhile at a SERVPRO restoration location, your items are stored in a secure, climate-controlled environment. They remain there until the cleaning and restoration process is complete.

Content Pack Back

After content cleaning and restoration, items are returned to your business using the same inventory procedures and documentation employed in the pack-out process. Your items are loaded, transported and delivered with great care and then reconciled with original pack-out inventories.

Content cleaning and restoration is offered at SERVPRO locations and on select jobs and services performed. The availability and scope of content cleaning and restoration varies by location, job, insurance provider (if applicable) and other factors.

This means at no cost to you we give you the proper information to be ready for any disaster that may strike, and insure that your businesses survival will be safe.

Your Business After A Fire

4/14/2021 (Permalink)

Presentation is important for any business, and doubly so in the service sector. If you own or manage a store or restaurant, your customers will likely be discouraged or even scared off by obvious signs of damage and visual blemishes on your property. SERVPRO knows first-hand that some of the most thorough visual damages to a building can come from fires, whether through the burn itself or any associated events and factors. These blemishes and issues are commonly cleaned up by our restoration teams, to ensure that once a company's doors get back open, they stay open. 
Burn Marks 
Burns and char easily rank among the most visible types of commercial fire damage immediately giving away to any observer the fact that a fire has burned in the area. Blackened or darkened materials, even if they have no other major damage beyond discoloration, can still be resource and time-intensive to cover up, often requiring a wide cleaning and repainting job to make sure colors blend well and no burn material remains. 
Smoke and Ash 
smoke and ash  leave a profound impact on a building, to both the sight and smell of anyone nearby. Smoke is a pervasive scent and easily noticeable in most cases, but can also leave behind a great deal of smearing and coat surfaces. Depending on the type of smoke and conditions of this fire, this may be a relatively easy cleanup job, or a more thorough repainting may be in order. 
Structural Damage 
SERVPRO can also help to restore mild structural damage caused by a fire, rebuilding walls, floors, supports, and other elements of a building if they have been burned through or collapsed on. We always aim to restore before replacing, and in this way can potentially save you thousands in reconstruction costs where they are not necessary.

Large Building Floods

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

Floods are a common occurrence in any property over time, but when floods occur in large commercial buildings with multiple floors the situation becomes quite a bit more complicated. A common scenario for flooding in large buildings is a flood in a higher floor or level that then leaks and seeps down into the walls and rooms of the lower levels of the buildings. This makes locating all affected areas quite difficult, in addition to this the flood and water can have a huge impact on the other infrastructure within the building such as plumbing and electrical. An issue such as this can also easily serve as a catalyst for mold growth within the building. If you have any questions regarding your home or commercial building call SERVPRO Today.

The Danger of Commercial Disasters

1/30/2020 (Permalink)

Recently SERVPRO serviced a multi-level commercial building that experienced a flood on the top floor, this is especially dangerous in a multi-level building because when one of the higher floors has water damage the water will inevitably leak down with gravity into the lower levels of the building and possibly into the basement if the building has one. This type of water damage is quite hard to service as for one, the building and whatever residents inside will likely have to vacate the premises while the remediation is underway if the damage is severe. When a call like this comes to us, SERVPRO is always prepared to immediately respond. If you find yourself in a  similar situation, don’t hesitate to call us!
