Reach Out to SERVPRO Technicians for Effective Storm Flood Damage Restoration in Long Beach
A storm can cause costly damage to a home, including wind damage, flood damage, and structural problems. If left unattended for an extended period, floodwater can cause mold growth, wood rot, and health hazards, among other issues to the residents. Seeking professional help from SERVPRO within 24 hours can prevent secondary damage in your Long Beach property.
What should I be cautious?
When there is storm flood damage in your Long Beach property, it is vital to be cautious to avoid injury or infection. Water conducts electricity and can cause electrocution hazards in your property. Therefore, switch off the main power supply to your property. Also, minimize movements in the flooded area since the water may have hidden hazards like broken window glass, nails, sticks, and broken electronics. If you must move from one point to another, wear waterproof boots.
How can you handle contamination caused by sewage?
Floodwater can contain sewage because it increases pressure on sewage systems, which could cause sewage back-ups. If sewage is visible in your home, our decontamination service can involve:
- Extracting as much water as possible
- Thoroughly cleaning debris or other solid contaminants
- Taking measures to dry the contaminated areas
- Applying disinfectants to kill microbes
Our technicians have access to advanced equipment and tools that help us conduct the drying process effectively—floodwater tags along with debris and dirt of various sizes. Therefore, we use equipment that can pass water together with the waste.
When dealing with contaminated water, it is usually impossible to restore carpets. Our technicians can remove your carpet and padding. SERVPRO technicians can use a knee kicker, power stretcher, razor knife or duckbill knife, and stair tool to remove the carpet and padding.
Why does my property feel cold and damp?
Even after the extraction of excess water, moisture is still high in the air. We can use multiple axial air movers to drive in dry, hot air from outside and replace the affected area's moist air. The machine extracts moisture even in the hard to reach areas. The air movers deliver lower pressure at higher volume giving them the ability to cover a wide area of affected materials.
It is vital to take immediate action after a flooding incident to save as much property as possible. Contact SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside at (516) 536-1801 to get your property to its preloss condition. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
