It is Essential to Let Qualified Restorers from SERVPRO Handle the Storm Flood Damage in Your Glendale Home

Even a small amount of floodwater in your home can cause severe damage in the long run. The harmful effects of floodwater can significantly reduce if you hire a team of restorers from SERVPRO. If you contact us when flooding occurs in your home, we can quickly respond to prevent secondary destruction.

Can SERVPRO restorers dry my basement?

When we get to a property affected by flood damage in Glendale, we first assess the damage to get a clear picture of its intensity. If the floodwater level in your basement is a few feet high, we can use a small portable electric submersible pump to remove it if we notice that the floodwater does not contain any solids. The equipment extracts 18,000 gallons of water per hour.

Drying your basement after excess water removal is essential to avoid mold damage. Our restorers use various techniques to dry the area effectively, including:

  • Open drying technique by increasing the building’s ventilation or using air-moving equipment to enhance air movement.
  • Closed drying technique by using advanced equipment such as dehumidifiers.
  • Heat drying technique by using heating equipment to increase the rate of evaporation.

Even after drying and cleaning your property effectively, odors may continue to persist. We can use air filtration devices to filter the air. The several filters in the equipment help remove airborne particles from the air.

Floodwater in your property can lead to costly repairs if not attended on time. Contact SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale to get your property to its former glory “Like it never even happened.” Our 24-hour hotline is (323) 255-1000.
