How Long Does It Take to Restore a Flooded House?
SERVPRO is an Efficient Flood Damage Restoration Company for Residents in the Covina Area
How do I clean up my home safely after flooding?
The safest way to return your Covina home to its preloss condition is to enlist a qualified restoration service. Floodwaters can make it tough to sanitize a home effectively because they carry contamination in the water supply. Pollution in flood water negatively affects the walls, floors, surfaces that it encounters, often requiring replacement of these materials. If porous surfaces have exposure to floodwaters, they can absorb contamination. Common building materials like drywall are porous materials that can be significantly affected by floodwaters. If drywall becomes soggy, SERVPRO technicians must cut the drywall two feet above the water level and remove the lower levels. We can also install safe, clean drywall to restore your home to a preloss condition.
What should I do if flooding affects my mains water supply?
In situations where there is widespread flood damage in the Covina area, you may find that your mains water supply is affected. Typically, these issues require temporary relocation from home. SERVPRO can perform a pack-out service for you and your family in these challenging times. We use professional removers to transport your contents to a secure, climate-controlled warehouse. Packing-out possessions can speed-up the flood damage restoration service by allowing technicians direct access to the structure of the property. We ensure your content and record them in a digital inventory during the pack-out and storage process before returning them to their home's original positions.
What should I include for a personal flood plan?
- Medicines and devices like hearing aids
- Essential phone numbers as well as documents like insurance policies, bank cards, and cash
- A week’s supply of clothes, a toothbrush, baby food and other day-to-day necessities in case of temporary relocation
