Extremes Of Weather Can Result In Covina Flood Damage

Heavy rains even in areas that recently experienced drought are not uncommon in this time of extreme weather patterns. If your home in Covina experiences flooding, you are not alone. Our skilled workforce has both the training and the experience to halt the harm flood water can cause to your residence. We also have the commercial quality water removal and drying equipment needed for our team to exceed your expectations.

Flood damage in Covina can include mudslides and debris-heavy water invading your home. Recovering from this type of loss is not a do-it-yourself proposition. Our employees master the coursework from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and gain on-the-job familiarity with the most effective strategies for flooding abatement in preparation for your disaster. We adjust crew size and add equipment as needed to clear the contaminated waters, clean and disinfect the affected area, and dry out your structure.

Flooding is considered black or Category 3 water. Soil, chemicals, dead animals and insects, and sewage are common contaminants. SERVPRO crews know how to contain and then dispose of the tainted water and debris according to local regulation. Once our pumps and extractors have removed the majority of the flood waters, we clean residual soiling with products and tools matched to your circumstances. We inhibit the proliferation of microbial growth, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens with EPA-registered disinfectants.

Once the flooded spaces are cleared, cleaned, and sanitized, SERVPRO moves on to structural drying. We use thermal imaging to locate any hidden water pockets and measure moisture levels to inform our drying goals. Structural drying requires a balance of air movement and temperature to be struck, causing water absorbed into building materials to release into the air as vapor. Our evaporative and desiccant dehumidifiers capture the airborne moisture for disposal outside of your home.

All steps must complete or at least begin within 24 to 48 hours of the flooding event to prevent secondary damage like mold growth and crumbling or warping of structural components. SERVPRO employees keep this timetable in mind as we look forward to returning your property to you “Like it never even happened.”
