A water leak in your house can either be a minor inconvenience or a catastrophe you cannot handle alone. Regardless of the severity of the water loss, do not panic. Our SERVPRO water damage restoration technicians (WRTs) can help you deal with the loss. We can clean up your home quickly to prevent further problems like rot, mold growth, odor, and pests.
Whether the water damage in your Los Angeles home results from a leaking appliance, overflowing bathtub or a burst pipe that soaks your kitchen or causes water to pool in several rooms, we have advanced water extraction and drying equipment that can remove it. We can restore your home to its original condition. We are available 24/7 and can arrive at your property one hour after receiving your call. As you wait for our technicians, here are some things you can do to contain the water loss in your home.
Identify the source of the leak
Plenty of things could cause a leak. Identifying it and stopping it is the first step in containing water damage. If you cannot recognize it, shut off the primary water source. That should stop the leaking immediately and allow you to concentrate on drying your home.
Call your insurance company
Contact your home insurer to make a claim. Take photos or videos to document the damage for insurance claims purposes. By informing your insurance firm about the water damage immediately, it can compensate you quickly.
Remove the standing water
You can use a shop vac or a standard mop and bucket to remove standing water from your house.
Water can easily wreak havoc in your home even when you believe you have already handled the situation. It is, therefore, advisable to let professionals examine the damage. At SERVPRO, we use a wide range of equipment to extract water and dry a home professionally. We can use wet/dry vacuums to remove as much water as possible from the affected areas. Thorough water removal reduces drying times and limits the chance of furniture stains and rust occurring. If there are furniture stains, we can remove them when the carpet is still damp.
Our technicians also check for pre-existing damages like mold growth and delamination. If we find damage, we notify the insurance adjuster. If your carpet is ruined, we can remove it if the adjuster tells us to do so. Our WRTs also set up air movers around the perimeter of affected rooms at 45-degree angles pointing towards the walls. We also place dehumidifiers in the air to eliminate extra moisture from the air. Our team also uses moisture sensors and moisture meters to determine if surfaces and materials are dry.
