Restoring Los Angeles Properties After Flooding Requires a Focus on Several Damaged Areas

One of the most destructive forces that properties in this area can face is flash flooding. The rapid pace of this surging water can overwhelm a property quickly. We have mitigation solutions that can begin as soon as we arrive to remove moisture and start the content protection, cleaning, and restoration.

Removing Standing Water in the House

Flood damage for Los Angeles homes immediately requires extraction and water removal solutions to get the property back towards the preloss condition. Pumps and vacuums both play a vital role in this effort and can eliminate the standing water and pooling collecting on damaged flooring.  

Clearing Bulk Materials and Debris

Debris and bulk material removal can be one of the initial actions necessary to prevent a flooding situation from getting worse. Natural flooding with the force of flash floods can provide a violent surge with solids that must also get removed and addressed along with the standing water. Some of the common elements to clean up include:

  • Mud
  • Silt
  • Organic matter
  • Insects/Animals
  • Debris

Antimicrobial and Disinfection Cleaning 

Flash floods carry possible contaminants, as there is no denying the potential substances and hazards encountered as the water reaches a residence. The thorough cleaning of the property targets two primary hurdles: health-hazardous effects and mold growth. We have multiple cleaning products in our inventory to help in both of these areas.

There is no mistaking the raw, destructive force of nature during events like flash flooding. As rapidly as these events can overwhelm a property, many look to our SERVPRO of Highland Park team for effective solutions to flood cleanup. We are available 24/7 at (323) 255-1001.
