Measuring Success in Storm Flood Damage Restoration for Los Angeles Residents

Responding in the right way to a property emergency can make all the difference when it comes to avoiding permanent losses. Violent weather can threaten your home in several ways by causing physical damage to doors or windows, overloading drainage systems, or flooding the lower levels of your home. These damages can feel overwhelming, and failure to address invisible as well as visible issues could result in secondary damages. SERVPRO designs our teams to respond quickly during an emergency to counter unexpected situations with calm, methodical restoration.

The impact of storm flood damage in Los Angeles may affect your property or your entire street. Depending on the type of emergency, our team can re-secure your home or work with construction teams to rebuild it after severe harm. One essential part of a restorer's role is to keep secondary losses to a minimum.

Knowing the extent of floodwater migration and the moisture content of your possessions is crucial to performing a restoration. Moisture sensors are useful in detecting the moisture content of wet fabrics. Using the sharp prongs of a moisture sensor, SERVPRO technicians can gain an accurate picture of water migration and knowing whether the subfloor pad is affected, or the subfloor underneath has a seismic impact on restoration. Failure to address a sodden infrastructure could cause a wealth of secondary issues to occur, like mold growth or rot.

For hardwood flooring as well as contents, our team uses a different piece of equipment. Moisture meters are like sensors but use probes or measure conductivity to access moisture content inside materials accurately. We may use these on walls, crawlspaces, or to assess floorboard conditions. To get a general picture of how effective the drying program is, SERVPRO can measure humidity levels in the property using a thermal hygrometer.

Consistently measuring the impact and moisture levels of your property is key to a successful restoration. Contact SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park at (213) 628-2000.
