Performing Water Removal in Your Glendale Residence Quickly Can Prevent Further Damage 

A mishap such as frozen or broken plumbing can cause water to pool in different parts of your Glendale home. It is critical to stop the source of the leak before the water spreads to the whole house. To control water damage, you need effective water removal. You can seek expert help to remove all the water from your home. 

If you are dealing with a water intrusion incident, do not worry. SERVPRO has the skills and tools to perform water removal in your Glendale residence. Water can destroy drywall, cabinets, furniture, floors, and upholstery. If you do not remove the water quickly, it can lead to moist conditions which increase the chance of mold infestation. Do not let a water loss situation develop into a big, expensive problem. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) can fix the issue as quickly as possible. To offer effective water removal services, we take a few steps, such as:       

  • Determining the source of the leak
  • Checking the extent of damage to contain the affected areas
  • Removing ruined materials
  • Extracting the water, drying, and decontaminating the affected areas 

We know the importance of keeping the cost of water damage restoration low. Therefore, our technicians extract the water as fast as possible to expedite the drying process and reduce the chances of secondary damage like mold growth occurring. We use the right equipment depending on the extent of the damage. 

We use portable pumps that help us extract the water in a home. If the standing water in your home is over two inches deep, we use a submersible pump with adequate volume capacity and lift capacity. We pump water directly into a treated sewer like a septic system or toilet. It is also crucial to dry a house and its contents quickly. Some factors that affect the time required to dry a building and its contents are: 

  • Humidity
  • Air movement
  • The amount of water that needs evaporating
  • Temperature 

We control these factors to achieve successful drying. Our technicians remove as much water as possible, maintain the relative humidity between 30 and 60 percent, keep the temperature between 70 and 80 degrees, and move wet air away from surfaces. 

Our technicians use tools such as hygrometers and moisture detectors to measure the level of moisture in walls and ceilings. If there is moisture in the walls and ceilings, we create an all-inclusive drying plan to eliminate it. We also treat furniture and carpets right away to prevent microbial growth. We have the expertise to make the water damage seem “Like it never even happened.”   

If a water loss incident has happened in your Eagle Rock, Northeast Los Angeles or Atwater Village property, SERVPRO of Eagle Rock/ South Glendale can help you restore it to the preloss state. You can reach us at (323) 255-1000 for prompt restoration services.
