The Variable Factors of Storm Flood Damage and Their Effects On Your Agoura Hills Residence
Storm Flood Damage Agoura Hills
Powerful storms can heap pressure onto the structure of your home. With heavy rainfall, there is a massive water volume that requires transportation via gutters into the drainage system below. In preparation for stormy seasons, residents should be sure that their guttering and drainage are clean with the ability to handle excessive quantities of water flow. In addition to rainfall, it is not uncommon for groundwater levels to rise or nearby road overflow to occur.
These situations can get out of hand, leading to storm flood damage in your Agoura Hills home. Knowing the equipment, you need to remedy a flooded property depending on the individual characteristics and build of your home. In that sense, property restoration is unique, and SERVPRO technicians must think on their feet to set up the right restorative equipment. In the aftermath of a storm, you can always begin the cleaning process by funneling standing water out of the home while waiting for technicians to arrive.
Every property damage proposition SERVPRO faces is a unique challenge. While there are specific steadfast actions, such as removing water or controlling humidity, the equipment we use can vary.
Low-Grain Refrigerant dehumidifiers, for example, are powerful and can reduce relative moisture quickly. However, homes that have wooden flooring may benefit more from a desiccant dehumidifier that uses silica gel to draw moisture out of natural materials like wood.
The construction materials of your home affect restoration. However, the type of damages SERVPRO is facing also means we often have to make adjustments in real-time. Floodwaters can carry solid waste from sewer overflow or debris in the case of flash-flooding. Where solid waste is a concern, we may deploy self-priming trash pumps rather than conventional high-pressure pumps. Trash pumps remove solid waste as large as three inches and can be useful in flat removals, such as in the first-floor levels of your home.
Every damage scenario is different, but we have the equipment and experience to put in place an efficient plan of action. Contact SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills at (818) 991-6292.
