Why You Should Call For Professionals Immediately After Your Los Angeles Home Suffers Flood Damage
SERVPRO Quickly Remediates Flooding in Your Home
When a storm hits your home and causes flood damage the night before you are due to return from a work-related trip, it can leave you in a panic. Finding your bedroom, bathroom, and hallway flooded with inches of water is never a good thing. The harsh winds of a storm can easily blow a window open and leave your home susceptible to damage.
When you find your Los Angeles home suffering from flood damage, it is imperative for you to reach out for help immediately. As the water has already been sitting for a night, the damage has had plenty of time to grow worse; leaving it any longer is inviting unwanted additional damage, such as mold. The structure of your home can grow weaker over time, and the carpet can become ultra-soaked, leaving the floor underneath constantly exposed to moisture. Not only is the structure of your home in danger, but your belongings too.
When you call SERVPRO, we make it our goal to arrive at your residence as soon as possible. Our skilled techs can bring trade tools with them that help accelerate the process of the water removal. Equipment like extractors, portable submersible pumps, and wet/dry vacuums were all designed to draw water out as quickly as possible. Depending on the volume of water that SERVPRO needs to remove from your home, some of our tools can even be truck mounted and operated.
After removing the water, our next goal is to deal with the excessive moisture the flood damage left behind. We can set up more equipment to dry out the floors and your belongings, including dehumidifiers and ventilation box fans. Because the water sat for a night, we can even spray disinfectant and antifungal agents to help prevent mold growth.
If water has invaded your home during a storm and caused flood damage, do not consider your options. Dial (323) 255-1000 to contact SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park. Time is everything in these situations.
