Recovering From Flash Flood Damage In Los Angeles
Recovering Flash Flood Damage to Your Los Angeles Home
Fierce storms that hit the Los Angeles area can quickly deposit an inch or more of rain over a matter of hours. That level of rainfall on the otherwise dry ground can be ideal conditions for flash flooding, as the earth does not have the time and opportunity to absorb the precipitation before it becomes a hazard to homes and businesses in its migration path. Flash floods can damage residences throughout the area severely, but our SERVPRO team can help with a fast and confident response.
Knowing how to help recover flood damage to Los Angeles homes is vital to restoring area properties after natural disasters. Restoration companies pop up around every corner when the city gets hit with widespread flooding concerns, but restoring and recovering your home or apartment after a flood involves more than some extractors and drying tools. Our professionals have extensive hands-on experience and continual education in water restoration and structural drying to provide skilled labor amid an emergency.
Even without standing water concerns, flash flooding can leave debris and mud throughout the lowest level of your property. Shoveling out heaps of this muck and debris can allow our teams to better clean exposed surfaces and improve the efficiency of later drying efforts. Much like fire debris removal, muck-outs can reduce the severity and concentration of airborne contaminants and threats as well.
With multiple drying decisions that must happen as soon as our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, choices most likely get made regarding controlled demolition as well. With exposed drywall and other porous materials, it can often be more cost-effective to remove and replace rather than waste time drying.
Drying your home after a flood cannot happen without the emergency services provided by our SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park team. We have many technicians and tools that can help to make flood losses “Like it never even happened.” No matter how we can help, give our emergency response team a call 24/7 at (213) 628-2000.
