Saving Contents From Severe Flood Damage In Los Gatos

If a flood hits your home, you have to deal with the adverse effects on both the structure and the contents it holds. While many of the effects, such as soiling and pile up of debris like silt happen immediately the floodwaters start flowing into the house, others happen gradually. Fast action can help save contents especially from the damages that take time. One of the advantages of hiring a professional team to mitigate the effects of flooding in Los Gatos is a fast response.

One of the main ways to save contents in homes affected by flood damage in Los Gatos is moving them from the property or the affected areas to areas untouched by the floodwaters such as rooms in higher floors. To complete such moves quickly, you need resources such as people or lifting equipment, especially when dealing with heavy items such as furniture. Our SERVPRO technicians work in teams making it easier to move items. We also arrange move outs to offsite climate-controlled warehouses.

Floodwaters are classified as black because of contamination with chemicals and disease-causing microorganisms. Therefore, replacement is the only solution for any predominantly porous contents affected by floodwaters including carpets, pad, and upholstery. However, it is possible to save a highly valued area rugs through cleaning. Our SERVPRO technicians clean such rugs, immerse them in a biocide and re-clean them before drying. Such thorough cleaning helps eliminate any traces of contamination left by floodwaters.

Flooding also soils non-porous contents such as wooden furniture, cabinets and other fixtures. Washing such items thoroughly and drying them helps restore their preloss state. Our SERVPRO technicians use pressure washers and professional cleaning agents to disinfect and sanitize the items. Our crew will then use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry them. We can also create drying chambers with plastic sheets to improve the drying rate.

You can save more contents in your flooded home with help from SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno. You can reach us at (408) 600-2020. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
