Pressurized Water Leaks, Los Angeles Homeowners, and SERVPRO to the Rescue

SERVPRO Helps Protect Homes with Water Extraction Techniques that Get Los Angeles Properties Dry Fast

When your bathroom or kitchen in your Los Angeles-area house sustains a broken pipe, that small break can put hundreds of gallons of water into your home. You need a company who is not only Faster To Any Size Disaster, but who also knows how to get every trace of the crisis back under control.
 
Protecting your home in Los Angeles means water extraction in a situation like this, including water vapor that can lead to damage weeks or months later, unless removed. SERVPRO technicians, working in teams, remove liquid water wetting your floors, and water vapor from the air. We also use techniques that extract water from the materials in your home, like walls, floors, and where possible, carpeting. Other furnishings, like nearby furniture and personal belongings, can also become saturated when a pipe breaks.
 
When this happens upstairs, anything in the vicinity over the leak downstairs can also become ruined if left as it is and not given the required attention. We use infrared imaging cameras that reveal where water has traveled via gravity and building materials. We can trace it to enclosed areas, also, and get trapped water released and then extracted.
 
Our specialists use methods recommended by the IICRC that restore dry conditions quickly and thoroughly. Allowing damp areas to remain can lead to problems with microbial growth, deterioration of materials, and uncomfortable breathing conditions. While some moisture in the air does make a home's environment more hospitable, too much can have the opposite effect. Our moisture meters help us determine when we have achieved optimal conditions in regards to humidity and keeps us from over-drying your home. Our drying goal is typically 35-60% depending on the interior and exterior conditions.
 
When a pipe snaps and spews water into your home's living area, or a sink overflows, SERVPRO technicians take the time to answer your questions while still working as quickly as possible. Making sure you get the answers to your questions means you understand the work we carry out inside your home, helping you feel more in control of the situation from start to finish. Your satisfaction is crucial to us, so please never hesitate to ask us about the work we do or the equipment we use. We strive to make you feel "Like it never even happened."
 
SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park is always here, 24/7, year-round, to help ensure your home stays protected from spills, overflows, and broken water lines. If your Elysian Park, Chinatown, or Angelino Heights property sustains one of these situations, call us at (213) 628-2000.
