What You Should Do When A Storm From The Pacific Floods Your Azusa Kitchen
What You Should Do When A Storm Floods Your Kitchen
Living in California makes your home susceptible to flood damage from storms that wash in from the Pacific Ocean. While not all storms are severe, even small ones still have the capacity to flood your home with several inches of water. A window in your kitchen that you left cracked open while working is the perfect entry point for water to rush through. Fortunately, when accidents happen, there is professional help nearby that you can call to begin the remediation process.
When your Azusa home is struck with flood damage, you may be unsure of how to react. You may want to examine all of your options as many aspects of life teach us that it is unwise to rush critical decisions. However, it is truly one of the worst things you can do for your home when it comes to water damage.
The longer the flood water sits in your kitchen, the more damage it can do. Your hardwood floors can become bloated and warped from absorbing the water. Your kitchen cabinets can begin to mold if microbial growth ensues. Any metal can begin to rust when exposed to stagnant water for such a long period. In reality, the quicker you get this excess water out of your home, the better.
Here at SERVPRO, we use advanced tools to tackle flooded waters in your home. Extractors work well for removing excess water fast, and their heating element can help dry out the different surfaces of your home as they remove the moisture. Our SERVPRO IICRC-certified techs can also use wet/dry vacuums and portable pumps to help the process go even faster. Getting the water out of your property as quickly as possible allows SERVPRO to dry the area out afterward and help prevent further damages, such as mold.
When a storm that sweeps in from the ocean floods your home, do not hesitate. Contact SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina by dialing the phone number (626) 387-4111. Our doors are open to you 24/7, and we are ready to send our technicians to your home.
