How Severe Storms Can Cause Flooding In Your Seal Beach Home
Fast Cleanup and Water Removal Can Alleviate the Pain of Flooding
While you might not always think of the possibility of flooding in your Seal Beach residence, it happens more often than people care to think. With the ever-present threat of natural disasters that every homeowner in the area always has on their minds, it is difficult to prepare your home for everything that it might face in the years to come. As troubling as it might seem, one bad storm could bring a natural disaster into your home to wreak havoc.
Flooding (in the traditional sense) might be relatively rare throughout the area, but there are always exceptions to this rule. Severe weather moving in from the Pacific Ocean can test the limitations of the exterior of your Seal Beach home, and cause flood damages if your roof or building materials fail you. Apart from keeping dying trees and their limbs away from your home, you cannot account for the damage a severe storm can do before you see it for yourself.
When a roof or siding on your home gets compromised by high winds or torrential downpours, you have exposure to these elements to get inside your home and start to pool and collect. Depending on where the damage outside has occurred, the respective water inside could be in several different places. Our SERVPRO professionals stand ready to live up to our promise of
We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, so you can call us whenever these emergency situations occur.
Our primary concern when dealing with heavy rainfall pouring into your home from these vulnerable points is to seal these avenues off. This process involves tarping over or boarding up exposed areas to prevent the damage from getting worse and allowing the restoration process to begin. For more robust exterior protection, an independent company can be called in for the work. Extraction is the heart of the SERVPRO flood damage restoration plan, as pooling water can dramatically impact the structural integrity of your home or create compounding damage like mold growth.
Getting to the problem quickly can help you to contend with fewer damages overall from the flooding. While this occurrence might be traumatic at the time, you can trust the SERVPRO of Seal Beach / Los Alamitos / Cypress team to help you clean up the mess and get things back to the way they should be. Call us anytime at (562) 431-9400.
