How To Deal With Water Damage In Your Agoura Residential Property

Owning a home is fulfilling, but it is also challenging. You need to maintain it well, and this includes repairing any damage that occurs promptly. Water damage can happen at any time because of leaky faucets, pipe bursts, and malfunctioning appliances, among other reasons. That’s why SERVPRO is ready to handle water loss incidents around the clock.

When your Agoura home has water damage, you need to act fast to clean it up. If you do not address it quickly, you may need mold cleanup services in addition to water damage restoration. You can do several things to deal with a water loss incident, including the following:

    •    Find the source of the leak and turning off the water at the main valve. If you are unable to turn it off, contact the water company to get the help you need.
    •    Take pictures or videos to document the extent of the leak and destruction. When you have adequate documentation of the damage, your insurance firm can compensate you quickly.
    •    Using a shop vac to remove the standing water.
    •    Open doors and windows to increase air circulation in your home.
    •    Dry out the floors and walls with fans and dehumidifiers.
    •    Dispose of ruined items responsibly.

You may be able to tackle minor water damage yourself if you have the time and appropriate equipment. However, if you cannot clean up and dry your home effectively, seeking professional restoration services is the right step. At SERVPRO, we know that it takes focused effort to restore a water-damaged home to its preloss condition. To that end, we have many years of experience and have honed our restoration process to perfection.

Before unloading any tools or equipment, we carry out a visual inspection to determine the extent of the damage, and if mold has started to grow. After the inspection, we use water extraction equipment like portable pumps to remove the water. We use a carpet wand to extract water from carpeting and a squeegee wand to remove water from hard surfaces. If necessary, we can expel water from the HVAC system.

Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRTs) also set up air movers and dehumidifiers in the affected areas to remove moisture from the structures and contents. Dampness can cause mold growth several days later. Therefore, our technicians double-check the work with thermal imaging cameras to make sure we dry all the affected areas. Once everything is dry, we can subcontract the necessary repairs to licensed professionals.
