Ridding Your Home Of The Problems Brought In By Flood Damage In Los Angeles

Homes with flood damage in Los Angeles no longer can provide shelter to homeowners.

Ridding Your Home Of Flood Damage

Your residence in Los Angeles gives you a safe and secure place from all the problems in the rest of the city. Keeping unwanted intruders out means having the best possible locks you can buy and using them to keep the door closed. Floodwaters pay no attention to this security measure as this murky invader merely slips right past all of your defenses.

Homes with flood damage in Los Angeles no longer can provide shelter to homeowners. SERVPRO has experience successfully mitigating such damage from both homes and businesses. Our employees receive certification for the IICRC and engage in ongoing training and education to keep their knowledge current. SERVPRO can help you restore your home to its previous, livable condition, “Like it never even happened.”

Our crew shows up prepared to start working as soon as our initial inspection and consultation with you conclude. As we work, we continually clean items. Cleaning and drying items can mean they sustain minor overall damage. For instance, in your kitchen, we remove all of your cookware, tableware, and anything else used for preparing or eating meals so we can sanitize everything that came into contact with the water.

Food products can carry highly toxic pathogens and other debris in minuscule grooves on the containers' exterior surfaces, so we always dispose of these potential health hazards. This disposal eliminates the possible mixing up of contaminated items with newly purchased food.

For similar reasons, carpets and the padding underneath them require removal. The process of drying these items out creates an almost impossible task and one that would most certainly not succeed. However, we can satisfactorily clean and decontaminate many area rugs and other things that may have become saturated in floodwaters by soaking them in unique solutions. Doing so can help preserve the overall pre-flood character of your home.

Drying out the interior of a home suffering from flood damage takes time, but SERVPRO technicians know how to use the equipment in our Green Fleet in the most efficient manner possible. SERVPRO works hard to get you and your family back in your home as soon as possible. We understand the devastating effects a flood can have on a family.

SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo is always on standby to help your family after flood damage by mitigating the situation. Call us at (310) 333-0654 so we can start working on making things safe again in your home.
