Seal Beach Room Needs Flood Restoration From SERVPRO
When it comes to groundwater intrusions into Seal Beach homes that cause the need for flood restoration after storms, they are one of the most critical types of water to enter a Seal Beach property. As seen in the Before Photo, SERVPRO technicians arrived to find contaminated water around the utility room, exposing the home's infrastructure and mechanicals to the groundwater. It is vital that emergency services water damage clean-up efforts begin as rapidly as possible to limit the furnace, water heater, and other equipment in the Seal Beach home.
Water Removal Services for Groundwater in Seal Beach Homes
SERVPRO techs scope the area to determine where the groundwater migrated to within the Seal Beach property. This action gets accomplished not only through visual inspections by SERVPRO technicians but also through a host of moisture detection equipment and infrared cameras often used as a part of the flood restoration process. The water clean-up that includes silt and sludge is easy to spot on the tile floors. Still, the water that gets absorbed into sheetrock behind baseboards or seeps under tile requires professional equipment for the best water damage restoration in Seal Beach houses.
Professional Cleaning Agents Used in Seal Beach Water Damage Remediation by SERVPRO
This type of water removal service in a Seal Beach home requires professional solutions to make the water safer to handle. SERVPRO technicians can test the water and determine if any harmful elements are present in the groundwater, including E. coli, pathogens, bacteria, and toxins. This testing allows SERVPRO techs to make the best choices when deciding if biocides or an antimicrobial solution is needed to treat the water before extraction.
SERVPRO Practices Safety During Flood Restoration in Seal Beach
When extracting the water from the Seal Beach utility room, SERVPRO techs routinely put up containment to halt airborne vapor's potential to travel outside the worksite during water damage remediation. SERVPRO techs remain safe during the water clean-up because the techs wear head-to-toe personal protective equipment. Including their eyes, nose, and mouth to avoid aspirating any contaminated water during the water damage restoration.
Seal Beach Floors Undergoing Flood Restoration Sometimes Need Controlled Demo by SERVPRO
After performing water removal services in the Seal Beach utility room, SERVPRO techs used their moisture detection equipment to measure if the water seeped under the tiles in the room. While most of this Seal Beach utility room did not need water damage repairs under the tile, the flooring directly under the water heater and furnace required removal to dry the subfloor underneath. A small amount of wicking into the sheetrock around the mechanicals and SERVPRO techs measured a few inches above the water line from the floor upward in the room. Then, they cut the ruined sheetrock off so it could not wick any further. Drying takes place as seen in the After Photo. SERVPRO techs use multiple air movers and industrial dehumidifiers to eliminate any remaining moisture. After drying, the techs cleaned the Seal Beach work site and prepped it for the final water damage repairs needed to make it, "Like it never even happened."
