Why Professional Hazard Assessment is Necessary After Flood Damage in Seal Beach
Assessing Hazards and Restoring your Home Safely after Flood Damage in Seal Beach
A flooded property can be a harrowing experience for a homeowner. Although there is a temptation to remove as much of your furnishings, possessions, and valuables, flood water can pose severe health and safety risks. Your best bet is to reach out to a local restoration service that can scope the property for structural weaknesses, areas of specific concern, and predict potential outcomes.
We offer an emergency service for flood damage in Seal Beach. On arrival at your property, a SERVPRO technician can talk you through the process from start to finish and put your mind at ease about the work ahead. There are considerable dangers to consider when large quantities of standing water are present in a home environment. However, a professional restorer can guide you through the issues by performing a scoping task.
Scoping is essential to emergency flood damage restoration work. The process involves checking for potential hazards or structural weaknesses and deciding on the equipment required to get your home back to preloss conditions. We assess contamination levels in the water as well as potential electrical issues. Open sockets need to be fitted with a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) to eliminate shock hazards. Ceilings and subfloors overloaded with water are prone to collapse and require inspection during the scoping procedure.
After establishing a safe environment your SERVPRO technician can begin a Psychrometric analysis of the affected area. Psychometrics is an assessment of the mixture of water, vapor, and air in your property. By taking careful measurement of the amount of water as well as using a thermal hygrometer to measure relative humidity, a restorer can understand what equipment is needed as well as a gameplan to restore your home to its preloss condition.
