I Need Help to Restore My Home After Storm Flood Damage. Who Do I Call?
Call SERVPRO to Eliminate the Storm Flood Damage in Your Venice Beach Residence
Flooding is a big deal in Venice Beach and other parts of the United States. The National Severe Storms Laboratory reports that flooding causes damage worth more than 5 billion dollars per year in the U.S.A. Flooding causes more destruction than any other event related to severe weather, and after such an incident, you need the help of SERVPRO to recover.
What are the consequences of flooding in homes?
Storm flood damage in your Venice Beach residence can have severe consequences to the building’s overall structure. Therefore, it is imperative to determine the full extent of the destruction because misdiagnoses can cause additional expenses and future problems. Floodwater poses various health and safety risks if not extracted quickly. They include:
- Electrical damage and risks
- Contaminated drinking water
- Disease and sanitary hazards from standing water
- Defunct sewage and drainage systems
- Dry and wet rot
- Mold infestation
Standing water can start soaking into the construction of your home, and this can increase the complexity, the time frame, and expense of drying your home.
How can you provide a solution to the flooding issue in the home?
You can trust SERVPRO technicians do their best to restore our home to its preloss state. The issue with flood restoration involves more than clearing up the water and drying a house. Water can cause additional problems like deterioration of building fabric. We can extract all the water from your home using powerful pumps before we strip out affected materials. After removing water and affected materials, we start the drying process using air moving and dehumidifying equipment. We also use moisture detection tools to monitor the drying process and stop precisely at the right time.
How can you sanitize my home effectively?
Flood restoration projects involve contaminated water. When dealing with category three water damage, our team wears suitable personal protective equipment like full-body suits, waterproof boots, nitrile gloves, and heavy-duty work gloves to stay safe from exposure to contamination. We also establish engineering controls to prevent contamination from spreading to the areas of a home that are not contaminated. Our technicians can use antimicrobial agents such as germicides and disinfectants to prevent the development of microorganisms or to stop or limit their growth. Germicides and disinfectants destroy about ninety-nine percent of the organisms they contact.
After the unfortunate event of storm flood damage in your Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, or Marian Del Rey home, call SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050 to offer remediation and restoration services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
