Mitigating Flood Damage In Los Angeles
Mitigating Flood Damage Protects Your Family, Possessions, and Belongings in Los Angeles but can be Risky Work
After a flood invades your residential property in Los Angeles, the entire interior becomes damp. While the floor takes the worst part of the damage, the water begins to evaporate soon after arriving, saturating the air with water vapor. Because wet goes to dry, it continually spreads to other areas, including those where your family placed belongings for safekeeping.
After a flood takes over your neighborhood in Los Angeles, starting flood damage mitigation work as soon as possible can protect everything currently undamaged from harm. An early beginning gives your family many benefits, as well, besides keeping the damage from worsening.
SERVPRO’s technicians study the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards, as well as receive ongoing in-house training, and we are all committed to helping our customers, and our community, as well, live in safe and sturdy homes, including after a disaster. Flooding leaves homes saturated, full of invasive pathogens capable of causing undesirable health effects, with untold destruction of the interior structure. Our training prepares us for such work, and our dedication to providing excellent service means our customers can rely on us.
Mitigating a house of flood damage can be dirty work, often involving buckets, shovels, and the removal of heavy, bulky, and soaking-wet materials. Because of the likelihood of coming into contact with hazards, we always wear personal protective equipment (PPE), including full suits, gloves, boots, face masks, and even respirators. These items protect us from sharp objects that can cut or puncture skin, germs that can cause health effects, and from microscopic particles in the air.
Instead of attempting to perform flood damage mitigation yourself and putting your health and safety on the line, SERVPRO is ready to do the hard work for you. During a disaster like this, the stress caused by disruption of your normal activities, worry about pets, belongings, and the future, as well as the displacement of your family, can make performing the job all that more difficult.
You can rely on our mitigation and restoration expertise, knowledge of local building codes, and creativity in making things “Like it never even happened.” SERVPRO of Highland Park is always near neighboring areas, including Montecito Heights, CA, Lincoln Heights, CA, and Monterey Hills, CA.
