Flood Damage in Your Azusa Residence Could Necessitate Board Up and Restoration Services

Many communities both inland and coastal are finding themselves flooded because of extreme weather. Water from heavy rain can make its way into your home, particularly if there’s existing damage like a leaky roof or broken windows. When flood water enters your house, the priority is your safety and that of family members and pets. 

It can take several days before you repair your Azusa home after flood damage. As you wait for restoration experts to repair your house, you can take several steps to prevent additional destruction. One of these steps is cutting power because flood water can carry an electrical current, which may spark a fire or shock a person. Locate the circuit panels and shut off the power circuits.

You should also inspect the exterior of your property and check for signs of potential danger such as a collapsed hoof. If you are not sure if your house is safe to enter, avoid going inside. You also need to gather vital documentation that you can use during the insurance claims process such as proof of ownership, personal identification, documentation of flood insurance and homeowner’s policy records.

If severe weather has destroyed several parts of your home like the roof, windows or walls, it is crucial to seal them to prevent secondary destruction like an animal intrusion, moisture intrusion, and vandalism. A restoration company like SERVPRO can board up any openings in the structure properly. Insurance policies usually require homeowners to protect their homes after any kind of damage. If you do not take measures to prevent further destruction to the house, your insurance firm could account for any secondary destruction to the building as negligence.

Removing the flood damage from your house quickly is imperative because it can ruin the floors, drywall, and furnishings. It can also introduce microbes into your home, which could cause health problems. Our SERVPRO crew can restore your house after flood waters have ruined its structure and contents. We have sophisticated water extraction equipment like submersible pumps and wet/dry vacuums, which can remove most of the water to speed up the drying process. We also use air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from a building and its contents. Our Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) also use equipment like moisture meters to monitor the drying process. Once your home is dry, we can perform restoration services like cleaning and deodorizing its contents.

If your home in Covina, Irwindale, or the nearby areas has sustained flood damage, call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 for board up and restoration services. Our goal in every restoration job is to make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.”
