The Steps of Successful Water Damage Recovery

Water disasters and emergencies make up most of the house service calls our technicians respond to throughout the year. Anticipating these calls helps us stay alert for needed extraction, drying, and surface cleaning that might result from unexpected plumbing issues or flooding.

Monterey Park water damage cleanup should begin as soon as possible. Our professionals have a wealth of vehicles and restoration equipment that SERVPRO can use to improve conditions in your home quickly after disasters.

What Emergency Repairs Help?

Damages to your home can only worsen the longer property owners wait for experienced help to arrive. With the fast response of SERVPRO professionals 24/7, we can get vital emergency repairs underway to keep the situation from worsening and prevent larger-scale tear-out and reconstruction of the utilities and the structural systems within the residence. Emergency repairs can include demolition, eliminating sagging materials, and patching up damage to the plumbing network.

Getting Water Removal Services Underway

One of the earliest actions our professionals can take is to remove water damage with extraction devices. Water removal is critical in protecting flooring and other exposed materials, as pooling is a pressing issue that must get addressed immediately to preserve installed building materials and contents. Some of the tools used to complete this crucial stage of mitigation include:

  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Trash pumps
  • Wet vacuums
  • Truck-mount extractors

Standard Instruments for Thorough Drying

Drying is a universal need of all restoration plans that our SERVPRO team creates after losses from leaks, flooding, and other water threats. Using a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers, we can manage moisture and wet surfaces to protect installed building materials however possible.

Unique Drying Tools We Use

Sometimes more than the basic drying and restoration tools are needed to manage where the water damage has moved. Absorption and moisture migration are significant threats to structural elements, so specialty tools might be required to help like:

  • Carpet Wands – Wet vacuums are among the most versatile restoration equipment to dry the home, including using carpet wands that provide focused extraction from carpets and padding.
  • Weighted Roving Extractors – Using the weight of the technician for effectiveness, roving extractors press carpets and padding against the subflooring materials to force moisture to the surface for collection.
  • Drying Mats – Large mats can get placed on wood plank flooring to draw out moisture through capillary suction.

Protecting Your Home from Secondary Damage

Water damage is often more than removing moisture from building materials and regulating humidity in the environment. Experienced professionals on our team must also address the potential for mold development in these moist conditions. Moisture and damp materials create a favorable environment for mold and microbial growth and spread. Wet, porous elements are excellent hosts for aggressive mold spores, allowing for a rapid and deep infestation that requires direct remediation actions to resolve. Regulating moisture and damp pockets helps to limit the possibilities of fungal colonization

When Are Repairs Needed?

Repairs and reconstruction are likely part of the restoration solution if your property suffers flooding and burst pipe damage. With an experienced roster of specialists under a general contractor license, we can complete these needed build-back services seamlessly after the restoration ends. Fast transitions between recovery phases help homeowners to get back to their properties more quickly following a disaster. The process often begins with material removal and controlled demolition, but can continue through utility repairs, rebuilding, and new construction needs.

Monterey Park water damage can devastate your home, making it vital for our professionals to respond quickly for mitigation and restoration services. You can count on our experienced SERVPRO of Monterey Park professionals to help 24/7 when you call (626) 656-6577.
