Avoid Some Mistakes Made By Beginning the Flood Damage Remediation Process in Glendale With SERVPRO
Fast, Efficient Flood Removal in a Glendale Home
While spring in California is not known for its heavy storms, strong winds and rain can still push you into dealing with unexpected structural damage. If not mitigated quickly, a wind-damaged roof can allow water to leak into your home and create even more problems, such as mold and warping or deterioration of drywall.
When severe weather leaves you needing flood removal for your Glendale residence, SERVPRO technicians stand ready to assist you and mitigate damage to your home. After you call one of our representatives, we can have a team sent to you within hours to determine the extent of the damage and begin cleanup.
SERVPRO technicians take moisture assessment seriously and use a variety of tools to get an accurate read on your surfaces. When evaluating carpets and the padding underneath them, moisture sensors with probes that can easily poke into surfaces are used, as this helps to determine potential water damage to the subfloor. Infrared cameras may be used to get a more accurate read on structural materials that may be affected by moisture.
In many cases, flooding may not have standing water that needs extraction, but surfaces such as ceilings and carpet will need drying and dehumidification to eliminate collected moisture. For carpeting, drywall, and other porous surfaces, low-grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers are used to filter water out of the air through refrigerated coils. Moisture accumulated from the air flows into a collection tray, which is then drained to remove water. This method works well in conjunction with plastic sheeting taped to the carpet, which helps pull moisture into a more concentrated area for the LGR dehumidifier to address.
After drying, disinfecting can be done with a variety of biocides intended to address different materials in your home. These solutions are especially useful in cleaning porous materials after drying to prevent microbial growth.
