Drying Out Your Los Angeles Home After Flood Damages
When Floods Strike Your Los Angeles Home, SERVPRO Will Be There To Help
Your Los Angeles home can take much abuse from Mother Nature in the form of severe weather patterns and systems that roll through the area. The unfortunate truth about these occurrences though, is that your home can begin to weaken in the areas most affected and in direct line with the harsh weather conditions. It is not uncommon to see houses in the area weakening to the point of failure or creating a pressing concern with an immediate need for professional restoration services to protect property and its contents.
When homeowners consider the possibility of flood damages in their Los Angeles properties, many deem the basement to be the likeliest of culprits. While this lower level of your home might be susceptible to these harsher conditions, your roof and siding can also play an instrumental role in allowing rainfall to penetrate the exterior of your house and ruin the contents of your house.
One of the first things that you can expect from our experienced SERVPRO technicians is the location and repair of vulnerable areas. This practice helps to limit the possibility of the same thing happening again after a short period. Once this penetration point gets remedied, our professionals get set out to accomplishing other critical components of the restoration.
Extraction is typically one of the jobs that take multiple tools to achieve. Ideally, the work gets accomplished with pumps and wet-vacs. For larger projects, a truck-mounted pump from our fleet is necessary. Once the pooling water has gotten removed, our team can set their sights on thoroughly drying the area with the use of air movers and dehumidifiers. For sources that have no immediate cause to get found, our team might recommend continued use of the dehumidifier after restoration completes.
