Leaks That Cause This Much Water Damage Need Help from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Can Quickly Restore Your Water Damaged Home in Los Angeles

Do not treat water damage to your Los Angeles home as an afterthought. The Los Angeles area does not usually get much rain. That means the ground is dry and any flooding that does occur, from local streams or broken sewer connections, flow right into the closest home if it cannot find a culvert. Regardless of how often it does or does not occur, you need the professional services of a water damage restoration company like SERVPRO, which has a reputation for getting the job done.

The water damage that can beset Los Angeles homes can affect many things including the walls, carpets, furniture and if a burst pipe caused this damage on upper levels, ceilings, floors and inside of walls which make some of this damage invisible.

An inspection gives trained technicians the ability to find all of the water damaged areas, based on the skills and equipment maintained. While a water damage expert is inspecting the property, coordinating of the entire process is beginning.

The evaporation process, using air movers and dehumidifiers-possibly chemical and refrigerant, helps remove moisture while powerful pumps and wet vacuums are working. In the lower levels with standing water, submersible pumps (sump pumps) extract large volumes of water rapidly. The fast removal of standing water and moisture will mitigate the damages caused by secondary water damage.

After the removal of the water, SERVPRO technicians begin the cleaning and sanitizing of all affected areas of the Glendale home. Cleaning is critical as the water has left a layer of residue on it. This residue consists of dust and dirt as well as any debris it picked up on its travels. Hardwood furniture has a tendency to spot from water and needs fast attention. Our IICRC certified technicians are expert in minimizing damage by thorough cleaning using specially formulate agents developed for SERVPRO and other products.

It is recommended to dispose of anything that cannot be cleaned, completely. This consists of severely damaged throw rugs and carpets, although most of these can be saved through the use of carpet cleaner machines and skilled technicians. In the case of Black Water intrusion from groundwater or a sewage backup, these possessions must be safely wrapped and discarded to prevent cross contamination. Removal of parts of the deteriorating wallboard is essential since this porous material cannot be dried properly. SERVPRO, after the water extraction and cleaning, always attempts to restore water damaged materials rather than replacing them to expedite your return to normalcy and to lessen costs. We return your home to pre-loss condition "Like it never even happened."

It is critical to call us as soon as you know that Los Angeles water damage is ruining your property. SERVPRO of Eagle Rock is ready 24/7 and is awaiting your call at (323) 410-0041 for prompt service.
