How to Fight Against Flood Damage in Los Angeles

Floods that are out of your control can wreak havoc on your possessions and property. Unfortunately, cleaning up the mess is your responsibility. Whether it is an overflowing road, a result of heavy rainfall or a natural disaster the harm caused to your home can be hard to fix yourself.

We serve hundreds of homeowners suffering from flood damage in Los Angeles and the surrounding area. Using up to the minute techniques and over thirty years of experience means we can get your home back to how it was with minimum fuss. "Like it never even happened."

The first step on the road to recovery is removing any excess water. We can do this using a portable extractor for smaller affected areas and truck-mounted pumps for larger jobs. When flooding occurs, the water itself can become contaminated by raw sewage, pesticides or any other toxins that come into contact with it.

Water that has become contaminated is referred to as black water and requires a sustained sanitization effort to ensure comprehensive restoration. The reason black water is so severe is that any remnants left behind can become breeding grounds for bacteria, produce unpleasant odors or encourage mold growth.

We have the expertise and equipment to remove areas of drywall, clear contamination as well as deep cleaning your contents at a specialized facility. In situations where a pack-out is the only way to restore your possessions to their pre loss conditions, we utilize Esporta washing machines that are capable of restoring items you may have thought were beyond repair.

After flood damage, the last thing you want is secondary damages. These can occur by leaving behind moisture or overlooking areas where contaminated water may reside after extraction. To ensure a thorough cleaning procedure, we use wet/dry vacuums and cleaning wands for targeted drying and sanitization. We can restore your indoor air quality by using ozone generators or chemical foggers to remove, neutralize and clear odors away.
