Any Size Leak can Necessitate Water Removal in Los Angeles
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 into your life 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 to.
Los Angeles homes that have standing water or other water damage problems need water removal experts in order to begin the work necessary to fix the problems causing the leak or other situation. Not all water problems are from leaks and can be from sump pump failures, overflowing bath tubs and sinks, malfunctioning dishwashers, hot 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 basement is experiencing problems with standing water of any depth, we can use submersible water pumps that remove the water to an outside location so it can drain safely away. Having a basement full of what might have started out as clean water but has now mixed with sewage because the sump pump burnt out from a short can create a bio-hazard mess throughout your basement. In situations like this, water removal is only the first step. Cleaning and decontaminating are both essential.
In normal 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 (323) 255-1000 fast. We will be there as quickly as possible to begin working on getting the situation under control.
