Los Angeles properties damaged by flooding require fast mitigation solutions

Homes can be quickly and wholly damaged by flood penetration and the spread of this water damage. Fast mitigative solutions can help reduce restoration costs and the length of recovery efforts set to begin. We are ready 24/7 to help with trained WRT-certified professionals.

Sealing Up Structural Vulnerabilities

Early actions to slow flood damage in Los Angeles homes start with a full structural damage assessment. Little can be done to complete the drying and cleanup of flood-damaged homes or businesses if the penetration points are not sealed up and stopped. With a contractor license, our SERVPRO team can complete temporary repairs to prevent water intrusions first.

Clearing Out Standing Water

The pooling of floodwater in areas of your home can be a considerable obstacle for even experienced restoration professionals. Not only must we provide extraction devices capable of managing deep surface water concerns, but we must also have water removal tools able to manage smaller solids and debris as well. Some of the extractors used for post-flood recovery include:

  • Trash pumps
  • Wet vacuums
  • Truck-mount extractors

Muck-Out Cleaning and Debris Removal

With the standing water resolved, we can also focus on the cleaning and debris removal needed to protect the property. Contamination is a considerable concern after these loss effects, including every material directly exposed to migrating water. . Our muck-out cleaning process removes mud, silt, decaying organic matter, and bulk materials from the property, allowing drying to begin unhindered.

Mitigating flood damage losses begins with the first steps professionals like ours take when arriving after a disaster. There is an urgency to flood recovery with so much of the property at stake for extreme damage, so our SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park team works fast to mobilize with cleanup and restoration tools.
