Flood Damage in Your Los Angeles Can Be Restored By Our Experts
Why SERVPRO Offers a Fast Response to Flood Damage in Los Angeles
Flooding is a relatively common natural disaster, and it ruins homes in various ways. After flood damage, you may have to replace furnishings, drywall, and carpets, among other items. When your home is flooded, stay away from your home until government officials say that it is safe to return.
When it's safe to return to your flood damaged Los Angeles home, take cash and emergency supplies with you. You should also contact your insurer and a flood restoration company such as SERVPRO to assist you with restoring your home. Floodwater can affect the structures and contents of your home in the following ways:
Drywall and wallboard – These materials are porous and become fragile in a flood. They can remain contaminated even after the drying process ends.
Laminated wood and particle board – They can separate and weaken after becoming damp.
Floor coverings – You have to discard carpets after a flood because it is difficult to clean and dry them adequately.
Appliances – They can become shorted out during flooding and may leak harmful gases into the air. Hire a professional to inspect them before use.
Solid wood – Furniture and other wooden items can crack and warp following a flood. However, we can save them by drying them out completely.
We can clean up your home quickly after a flood to prevent secondary destruction and costly repairs. Our technicians can remove all mud, dirt, and floodwater that could be in your property. We have tools that make flood cleanup easier, such as power washers and wet/dry vacuums.
Our SERVPRO crew can also dry the affected areas thoroughly using industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers. We can also use thermo-hygrometers to measure the temperature and relative humidity of the air in your home. We compare readings for air in the affected areas, unaffected areas, outside the house, and the air coming out of the HVAC system. Our technicians also take readings of the air that is being processed through the dehumidifiers and extracted into the affected areas to ensure that dehumidifiers are drying the home effectively.
