Handling Structural Problems after Flood Damage in Agoura Hills

Flooding incidents can cause several problems to a structure especially if the water flow is intense. Water that sits too long in the structure can also cause component degradation even if the impact of flooding was initially low. Restoring such damages requires skills and proper equipment. We offer professional restoration for affected households in Agoura Hills.
 
Flood damage in Agoura Hills may result in permanent damage to some materials used in insulation such as Rockwool and cellulose. Such damage usually manifests in the form of matting and loss of antimicrobial properties in cellulose or rusting in Rockwool because of metal properties. Fiberglass insulation is more resilient and can regain its insulating qualities when dried properly. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the level of damage before deciding the steps to take. We perform flood cuts to open up the walls thus allowing easy access to the insulation. In case of severe damage or contamination, we replace the affected materials.
 
Floodwaters affect porous building materials such as drywall and wood composites whereby they lose structural integrity if they absorb too much water. The porous materials might also absorb the contaminants present in the floodwaters posing health risks to house occupants even after cleaning. Our SERVPRO technicians take steps such as spraying EPA-registered disinfectants directly into areas affected by floodwaters. We also do a thorough evaluation to find out the extent of damage and decide whether to replace them.
 
After flooding incidents, water is easily trapped in concealed spaces such as wall cavities or being cabinets. This water can create long-term problems for the structure including widespread mold growth. The processes of identifying areas with trapped water and removing it can be tedious or destructive. Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment to address this challenge. With FLIR thermal cameras, we can quickly identify concealed wet areas. We then apply different skills learned in Applied Structural Drying including creating vent holes to remove the trapped water.
