Storm Damage SERVPRO Will Restore Your Covina Home And Put You At Ease After A Flood Damage caused by a storm needs SERVPRO on the scene.

Overflowing Catch Basins Can Flood Covina Homes

 Severe weather might not always threaten your Covina home, especially with the high-quality construction of your house designed to withstand the sometimes brutal winds and conditions present with harsh storms. The culvert system or storm sewer network throughout the area are vital to protecting properties and commercial structures from flooding by moving water to safe areas, water treatment facilities, and even into the primary sewer system that travels to wastewater plants. 

Maintaining these catch basins and culverts is often the responsibility of the municipality, but without staying on top of these basins in the middle of a heavy storm, your Covina home could end up with flood damage. These diversion systems can get clogged with debris, falling leaves, dirt, and other obstructing substances and prevent them from moving water away from residences and businesses as they should. The result can be a time-sensitive flooding situation in which our SERVPRO professionals must act quickly to protect areas of your house and the occupants of the residence from potential hazards and damages. 

While anyone can clean off the top grating to help water flow resume to this diversion network, many times the problem lies in an inaccessible or challenging place within the basin itself. To correct this problem, you often must contact the owner of the catch basin, whether that belongs to the city or it is one maintained by the state. In the meantime, you need professionals that can protect your belongings from unsalvageable damage while the drying efforts begin.

Our SERVPRO professionals can arrive quickly with the tools to quickly extract excess water and begin thoroughly drying all of the exposed areas. While often carpeting and drywall exposed must get removed and later replaced, our fast response to the situation can help move the contents of your home to a safe location for focused cleaning and drying by our experienced Contents Department. 

While you cannot predict when a catch basin on the roadway or right of way can clog or get obstructed to prevent water flow, the flood damage that a situation like this can cause is substantial for nearby properties. Give our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina rapid response team a call anytime at (626) 387-4111 to protect your belongings and restore the damage that occurred.
