Removing Kitchen Flood Damage in Venice Beach

2/18/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO will break down all you need to know when it comes to your Venice Beach kitchen flood.

Your Venice Beach kitchen flood will be hard to wrap your head around, here's what we can do.

Flooding is easily the most costly natural disaster in the United States, as well as the most common one that homeowners face. All it takes is two inches of floodwater to cause tens of thousands of dollars in damages. Flooding not only penetrates flooring, but it can also saturate drywall and compromise internal components of your home like electrical wiring and insulation.

If your Venice Beach home needs flood damage mitigation that can act quickly, SERVPRO technicians can arrive within hours of your call to remove contamination and restore your home to a preloss condition. This team uses cutting-edge technologies and a consistent set of cleanup standards to eliminate flood damage and restore your home. They even use tablet-based documentation software to catalog damage and take inventory of possessions, which can aid you in filing your claim after a flood.

What Happens to Your Floor Tiles When Flooding Occurs?

  • After floodwaters have spread through your kitchen, ceramic floor tiles may come loose. The tiles themselves may not be damaged, but the water can loosen adhesives, penetrate grout, and saturate your subfloor.
  • While floodwaters may not directly damage tiles, they can be damaged by saturated grout that expands, which can cause tiles to warp or crack.
  • Plywood subflooring can soak up water and expand, which can make flooring buckle or loosen tiles. Technicians make sure to examine your flooring and subflooring for signs of moisture absorption to prevent the risk of further damage to your home.

SERVPRO's Disinfection & Deodorization Techniques

When flooding has affected your kitchen, SERVPRO technicians work quickly to remove any remaining water or moisture. Before drying can commence, disinfection is necessary to prevent the spread of microbes and contaminants. To address this, restoration technicians can use EPA-registered, OSHA-approved biocides to address potential microbes and eliminate them from your home.

If you have odors from flood debris and water damage on your property, technicians can deploy ultra-low volume foggers to combat odors. ULV foggers penetrate surfaces with water or solvent-based deodorizers to chemically alter odor-based particles to remove unpleasant smells.

SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach can ensure that your next home disaster looks, "Like it never even happened." Call (310) 395-9050 for rapid cleanup from an experienced team.
