Quick Action after Water Damage Can Help to Prevent any Secondary Damage

It doesn't need to be a gushing line break that floods part of your home. It can be a small drip that is the source of accumulation in your living room ceiling that suddenly breaks open from above. When a small leak goes unnoticed, the water must go somewhere or build up. Because water is heavy, and it's also able to soak into your semi-porous living room ceiling, it can give way when you least expect it.

Los Angeles homes with standing water or other water damage problems need water removal experts to begin the work necessary to fix the issues causing the leak or other situation. Not all water problems are from leaks and can be from sump pump failures, overflowing bathtubs and sinks, malfunctioning dishwashers, water heaters that have rusted, and many other sources. SERVPRO has professionals who can stop the flow of water, remove the standing water, assess the damage, and begin the drying process.

If your home is experiencing problems with standing water of any depth, we can use submersible water pumps that remove the water to an outdoor location so it can drain safely away. Having a home full of what might have started as clean water has now mixed with sewage because the sump pump burnt out from a short can create a bio-hazard mess throughout your home. In situations like this, water removal is only the first step. Cleaning and decontaminating are both essential.

In typical situations, excluding those with bio-hazard issues, water removal is followed by water extraction from saturated materials. This is then followed by restoration, from repainting to the removal of damaged materials. When we're finished, it'll be "Like it never even happened."

If you've found a watery situation in your home, you need to call SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park at (213) 628-2000 fast. We can be there as quickly as possible to begin working on getting the situation under control.
