Grand Wailea Grand Wailea-Maui

In December of 2021 The Islands of Hawaii were hit by a tropical storm, the storm traveled first to the Big Island then Maui.  The storm hit Maui with sever thunderstorms heavy rain flooded roads and buildings. When the storm struck the Grand Wailea in Maui this beautiful resort took a huge multi-million dollar hit. Storm team SERVPRO got the call and when they reached out to our team we immediately sent a team over to access the Resort. This commercial structure had taken a direct hit by the storm. With roofs collapsed, the spa filled with water and mold began to set in immediately. Within a week we had a Storm Team of 15 flying back and forth between Oahu and Maui daily. We drop shipped 25 pallets of equipment and had all of it set up within 7 days of the storm hitting. Our Storm team spent 3 months performing mitigation on the Grand Wailea, pulling out damaged contents and drying the resort out. This was the largest commercial project to date for our Storm Team. No commercial job is to big or to small for us to handle. Our Storm Team will travel all over the US for jobs.

Walgreens, located in Honolulu, was affected by water damage that was left untreated and grew mold. Luckily the damages to this commercial building were isolated to just one room.

SERVPRO of Central Honolulu was able to identify all the mold present. Unfortunately the water had seeped into walls and therefore demolition was needed for full restoration. We established a containment area, removed the affected drywall and left air scrubbers overnight to help remove any leftover mold spores that may have loosened during demolition. This helps ensure that all the mold is gone before our reconstruction team comes to make the space "Like it never even happened."

As tourism returns to Hawaii, many rentals are starting to welcome guests again. Hosting short term guests can place your home at risk, as there are no long term residents to notice the possible mold growth or water damage to your property.

Fungi can grow very easily in damp environments over time. For the reason, SERVPRO recommends homeowners walk through their homes before welcoming the new visitors to check for any fungi growth in common places such as:

  • Cabinets
  • Closets
  • Behind/Below Furniture
  • Small enclosed areas
  • Dark/Damp Rooms

Pipe leaks and further water damage can also happen slowly over time. To ensure that your rental is safe, check your property for water damage in these areas:

  • Walls
  • Bathrooms
  • Under sinks
  • Behind large appliances
  • Hoses
  • All faucets

If you find that your rental has experienced any fungi or water damage call our SERVPRO team (808)-235-5015 today for an inspection.

How To Ensure The Quickest Recovery In Your Commercial Business

7/27/2021 (Permalink)

A puddle of water collecting inside a building To ensure the fastest recovery process work with SERVPRO technicians throughout the process of your commercial business.

When your  company building in Honolulu, HI is affected by any flood damage, there will likely be many unforeseen damages that will need to be addressed. The structure of the building, affected belongings, and even your walls will require professional care. To ensure the most cost effective recovery, it is important to salvage what you can.  

  1. Curtains, Rugs and Other Small Items

Small belongings may be quite simple to take care of yourself. Depending on the water damage, fabric decor items such as curtains, pillows, or rugs may sometimes be machine washable or dry cleaned. If the damage is drastic or has a high level of contamination the items will need to be pretreated.

  1. Furniture

Furniture items require special handling and treatment. If the item has absorbed a certain amount of water, replacement may be the only option. If the damage is from a clean water source, such as a burst pipe, they may be salvageable. Non-porous material is much easier to clean, you can scrub them yourself with and anti-bacterial cleanser.

  1. Paper Documents and Artwork

If your flooded company building has resulted in damaged documents or artwork, you may be feeling a little hopeless. These are delicate and highly porous, so restoring them can be difficult. Luckily, SERVPRO of Central Honolulu has access to several cleanup methods. Techniques such as freeze or thermal drying, dehumidification and gamma irradiation can save many paper items.

  1. Electronics

When it comes to electronics, you need to be extra careful. Turning on a wet or damp device may cause the circuit to become permanently damaged. If you have damaged computers or equipment, a professional service can have them inspected and cleaned by a technician to ensure the best results.

Dealing with flooding in a company building is always hard on business. A cleanup and restoration service can help reduce the negative effects by restoring your items and property.

6/21/2021 (Permalink)

If mold is left untreated, the repairs become increasingly costly. The best way to handle mold spores is to tackle them early on before any damage can be caused. 

Some types of mold can affect the structural integrity of your home and some types are even dangerous to human health. All mold growth needs moisture to grow. By managing humidity in your commercial building now, you can save yourself time and money later. 

SERVPRO of Central Honolulu offers these tips to help prevent the growth of mold:

  • Clean spills or leaks quickly
  • Make sure roof gutters are in good shape
  • Don’t let water collect around the house foundation
  • Don’t let water collect in the air-conditioner drip pans
  • Keep drains clear
  • Use exhaust fans
  • Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers

  • Appliances should vent to the outside. Even stoves, washers, and dryers produce water vapor
  • Increase air movement
    • Open doors & windows
    • Use fans
  • Insulate cold surfaces like water pipes
  • Keep the temperature comfortable

buildings in waikiki on water front It’s important to keep watch on your vacation rentals! Go through our SERVPRO recommended checklist to make certain your rental is safe today!

Is your Vacation Rental at risk?

With new vacation rental laws being enforced starting August 1st, 2019, many vacation rental homes are being shut down.

All vacation rentals have a constant flow of short term residents coming in and out. One thing many do not realize, these homes are at risk, as there are no long term residents to notice the possible mold growth or water damage to the home or property.

As new vacation rental laws are being enforced more prevalently, many vacation rentals will be needing a change in their targeted population, including possible long term rental agreements.

In making these new changes SERVPRO recommends homeowners walk through their homes and check for any fungi growth in common places such as:

- Cabinets

- Closets

- Behind/Below Furniture

- Small enclosed areas

- Dark/Damp Rooms

Pipe leaks or seemingly minimal water damage can cause extensive issues and damage to your Kahuku rental. SERVPRO recommends homeowners walk through any vacation/long term rentals to check for possible water damage. Common places to check may include:

- Walls

- Bathrooms

- Under sinks

- Behind large appliances

- Hoses

- All faucets

If your rental has experienced any fungi/water damage call our SERVPRO team (808)-744-2730 today for an inspection.

store front of Kailua Cinemas Kailua Cinemas trusts SERVPRO to handle their commercial services.

Local Movie Theater Suffers Water Damage

Water flooded the bottom of one of the theater rooms in the Kailua Cinemas movie theater due to a storm. The water came flooding in the emergency exit and filled the bottom of the theater with about and inch of water. As most theaters are, the bottom of the theater is at a lower level then than the rest of the room. Meaning the water didn't spread very far throughout the room. It collected in one area that just so happened to be concrete. The water did not set into the ground and our technicians were able to remove all water very easily. a few fans and dehumidifiers were placed around the bottom of the theater to prevent any further possible damages, and possible microbial growth. The theater owners were very pleased with the speed of the whole process and plan on using our services if the need ever arises in the future.

Ross in Honolulu Calls SERVPRO to Solve Bio-Hazard

Ross, located in Honolulu  was affected by a biohazard. With backed up pipes and drains contaminants rushed up onto the bathroom and hallway floors. Because the water had human waste contaminants the water job was a category 3. With such a high category of contamination the cleaning and restoration process becomes much more detailed. With a category 3 if the water is to set, or seep into any cracks, walls, or items these items are to be torn out, treated, and replaced. 

Luckily the damages to this commercial building were minimal. The water had not set into the grout or the walls. Meaning that was needed was for the water and contaminants to be extracted. We removed all waste and then cleaned and sanitized all affected surfaces. Our team was in an out within hours.
