Storm Damage Due To The Geographic Location Of Los Angeles, Your Home May Suffer Flood Damage During A Storm Storms can gain sudden traction and size, sometimes rendering the predicted severity of the rain and wind useless.

Your Home May Suffer Flood Damage During A Storm

Seaside cities are always hit harder by ocean-based storms than inland cities, and this could leave your home vulnerable to flood damage. Storms can gain sudden traction and size, sometimes rendering the predicted severity of the rain and wind useless. Intense winds and rains can cause flooding in the streets, and this flooding can carry debris along its currents. Large rocks, tree branches, or even street signs that are being carried along with the storm waters can break the basement window of your home. Suddenly, there is open access to your home, which allows the floodwaters to rush in and settle there.

The flood damage inside of your Los Angeles home impacted your basement entertainment room. The carpets are soaked through, the entertainment stand is waterlogged, and your furniture has been exposed. Upon finding the damage in your basement, and four inches of water, it is essential for you to call for professional help as soon as possible. The quicker professionals can address the damage, the more likely that remediation may be successful.

Upon calling SERVPRO, our team quickly gets ready and drives to your home. Our technicians can bring advanced technology with them that is made for remediating flood damage. Without these tools, removing the standing water from your home would be a much slower process.

SERVPRO can use pumps and wet/dry vacuums to remove the majority of the stagnant water in your basement. Once it is gone, SERVPRO can focus on removing as much moisture as we can from your furniture and carpets with an extractor. The tool has a heating element as well as powerful suction, making it an excellent tool for the job. Once as much moisture as possible has been removed, our technicians can set up air movers and dehumidifiers to handle any remaining moisture levels that need to be brought down.

If a severe ocean-based storm brings flood damage to your home, never wait to call for help. Get in touch with SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale by dialing (818) 938-2985. Day or night, we're here to make it easier for you.
