Holes in a Roof Can Cause Storm Damage to Los Angeles Homes

Los Angeles Homes Benefit from Rapid Stormwater Extraction by SERVPRO to Mitigate Damages

Flooding may affect your Los Angeles property when you least expect it. Whether strong winds blow part of the roof off or tree branches fall and puncture the cover, letting rain in, you have to deal with the damage caused by the excess water in your property. Most of these cases are complicated further by confusion as property owners are not sure whom to call. With the professional services we offer, it is possible to get out of the harmful situation faster.

The primary step in the mitigation of flood damage in Los Angeles is the removal of the excess water from the property. It helps ensure no secondary damages or opportunistic problems crop up. Some secondary damages might include rotting of wood, carpets delaminating, among other issues caused by extended exposure to excessive moisture. You may consider microbial growth as an opportunistic problem, which can occur even if you remove water, but still leave enough moisture.

Depending on the point of entry of the floodwater, damages might affect many areas and not just the lower levels of the property. In the example, we talked about a blown or punctured roof in which case, damages to the walls and the ceilings are widespread. Our SERVPRO team takes different approaches to deal with the problem, restoring the property from the storm effects like it never happened.

A bit of demolition might be necessary to remove wet materials. At this stage, we remove the affected drywall, ceiling, and insulation. In case the floodwater is contaminated, we also remove the carpet and pad. In addition to the work that requires specialist skills, our SERVPRO team also helps with pack outs where necessary. Removing some contents creates room for proper placement of air movers and dehumidifiers, which are necessary for extracting excessive moisture from the affected areas. This way, we can dry the property back to its preloss moisture levels.

Involving an expert in your recovery efforts reduces the stress of restoring a flooded property. You can call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo at (310) 333-654 for any flooding emergencies. We are available 24/7.
