How Professionals Can Help You Handle Flood Damage in Your Agoura Residence

According to the Public Policy Institute of California, many areas in California are vulnerable to flooding. People who live in properties that are susceptible to flood damage should prepare for such a calamity in a good time. It is vital to have the emergency number of a reliable flood restoration company.

Flooding can affect your home and its contents severely. After experiencing storm damage in your Agoura home, it is advisable to contact SERVPRO franchise professionals. Post flooding activities are a priority because the longer water and debris remain in a house, the more damage it can sustain. This includes corrosion of metallic items, wood rot, and mold infestation.

When dealing with contaminated water damages, our team usually eliminates safety hazards for the property. We also wear suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) like rubber gloves, full-body suits, boots, and eye protection. We also spray EPA-approved disinfectants on the affected areas. Our team can use suitable extractors to remove water from the floors.

Our post-flooding cleaning services also include drying the affected building materials and contents, disinfecting the property, and deodorizing it. We have the necessary equipment and expertise to eliminate dampness and disease-causing organisms.

Flooding may ruin walls severely. If wallboards are saturated with water, removing them is essential. Our team can cut away all affected wallboards slightly above the waterline. Our SERVPRO team also monitors all water damage jobs daily. We create written monitoring reports which include moisture content readings of the contents and structure, and specific humidity readings to document that the environment is drying.

This recommendation is expensive to have done and is viable only in the area of persistent flooding. This may also lower your flood insurance cost, if available. After the restoration process, it is essential to check your home thoroughly to ensure that everything is intact. You can also choose to remodel your house to limit the risk of future floods damaging it extensively. Elevating your home to a desired flood protection elevation is one way to keep it from sustaining severe flood damage when it rains too much. By properly lifting a home, the living is above all, but the most devastating floods. This is a delicate task that requires the skill of a seasoned professional because it can impact the structural integrity of your house.

SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills is locally owned and operated, and we are available around the clock.  Call us at (818) 991-6292 to restore your flood-damaged house in Agoura Hills, Calabasas, or Hidden Hills quickly.
