Take The Stress Out Of Storm Damage Remediation In Los Gatos
Why Wait for Professionals after Flood Damage in Your Los Gatos Home Yet Time is Critical
Flooding incidents can happen when least expected. Even when anticipated, the scope of damage can devastate you. Time is a critical factor during flood damage events because the longer a property remains submerged, the more damages occur. Although you might feel pressed to take actions to save your property, there are reasons why you might want to wait for professional help.
Incidents like flood damage affecting your Los Gatos home not only ruin your home but also lead to third party damages. These might include issues like vandalism and damage by weather elements from openings created during the main event leading to flooding. Instead of burdening yourself with intricate tasks such as cleanup, securing your property is one task you can focus on as you wait and make a difference. You can turn off power mains and seal any openings you find which might allow small animals or even people into your house. Taking such actions prevents unnecessary third party damages.
You might want to venture into your stricken house to save valuable contents or even check the extent of damages. However, entering a house after flooding is dangerous for several reasons including compromised structural integrity, presence of contaminants, and even small but dangerous animals seeking shelter in your property. Professionals can assess the situation before entering the house to determine how safe it is. Our SERVPRO technicians also have various PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, including rubber boots, hard hats, rubber gloves, and other gear. They can, therefore, enter the flooded property with minimal risk.
Most of the tasks needed to restore the property to its preloss state require sufficient resources to carry out properly. For example, the contamination and soiling of surfaces might not go away easily. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on equipment such as pressure washers to remove sludge and mud. We also perform controlled demolition to removed contaminated materials such as drywall panels and carpets to ensure no traces of contamination remain.
A bungled restoration process after flooding can have long-term implications. Call SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno after an incident at (408) 600-2020 to help clean up and rebuild, "Like it never even happened."
