DIY or Professionals? Why SERVPRO is Your Choice to Restore Flood Damage in Seal Beach
Seek Expert Help to Clean Up Your Flood Damaged Seal Beach Residence
Flooding is a relatively common natural disaster. A study from the Center for Neighborhood Technology states that flooding affects millions of properties across the United States because of increased rainfall that results in overflowing of rivers and streams. Seal Beach is susceptible to flooding because of rising sea levels. Each winter, a sand beam is constructed on the beach as a protection against big surf and high tides.
When floodwater finds its way into homes, it leads to both primary and secondary damage. If there is flood damage in your Seal Beach home, it is essential to contact experts from SERVPRO to clean up and dry the affected areas. We can handle category three contamination and adhere to EPA standards while cleaning and sanitizing your home.
Flood damage repair and restoration costs are the reason why many property owners do not contact professionals. They believe that they may save money if they restored the affected areas themselves. However, the truth is that hiring a restoration professional immediately after a flooding incident can significantly reduce your losses and costs. The sooner the water extraction, cleanup, and drying processes begin the less damage to which your property is prone.
Your health and that of your family is a priority. Floodwater may contain toxigenic, pathogenic, or other hazardous agents. It may carry organic matter, silt, heavy metals, pesticides, or regulated materials. Coming in contact with this water can put you and your family at risk. Without experience and suitable equipment, restoring the flood-damaged areas can be a nightmare. You can land yourself into more problems. Every porous surface in your house can become a breeding ground for pathogens.
Our team has the expertise and products required to disinfect your property to eliminate hazardous organisms. Some water damage restoration products we can use to control or slow down the growth of microbes include:
