Flood Damage Incidents Should Not Bring Your Los Gatos Property to a Halt

Severe weather conditions such as thunderstorms may lead to flood damage. Though most of us understand the need to take steps to prevent basement flooding, some situations may be overwhelming and demand professional help. For instance, weak areas or cracks within the foundation may allow flood water to seep into the basement. When that happens, we end up with damp carpets, and there is a need to pump out the water as well as remove the debris that the water carries into your Los Gatos property.

When our SERVPRO technicians arrive at your home to perform flood damage restoration in Los Gatos we start by inspecting the property. During this step, we determine whether it is safe to enter the site. There are several dangers to expect when you visit flooded properties, and some of them are gas leaks, foundation cracks, chemical spills, and the danger of electrocution. You now understand why we turn off the electricity and seek alternative sources of electricity whenever we are working for you.

Our SERVPRO technicians wear protective equipment when dealing with flood water since it may be comprised of black water, which is highly contaminated. Using the right protective gear during the restoration process prevents possible health effects. If the water is still flowing into the site, it is our work to prevent the flow and put in place procedures of drying the affected items.

To hasten the drying process, we may remove the water soaked items from the site. In some cases, we may enhance the circulation of air within the area by using air movers and fans to speed up the drying process. As wet items lose water, it settles in the surrounding air, and with time, it may condense and cause further flood damage. To prevent such an eventuality, we set up dehumidifiers to absorb the excess moisture. We usually advise the property owner to discard carpets that have been contaminated by flood water.

SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno has highly trained restoration technicians who work 24/7 to make your property appear “Like it never even happened.” Call (408) 600-2020 and get a chance of working with a reliable industry leader.
