How Our Restoration Process Will Help You Recover from Flood Damage in Your Los Alamitos Home
Cleaning And Restoration Procedures to Fix Flood Damage Basement in Los Alamitos
The items in your basement are likely to deteriorate when your property experiences flood damage. We can divert the water from the basement to a safe location where possible. Before entering the area, we ensure power is switched off from the mains to avoid electrocution since water is a good conductor of electricity. We also advise Los Alamitos residents not to walk in standing water.
Our SERVPRO technicians can extract standing water from your Los Alamitos home using submersible pumps and other appropriate water extraction tools. We understand that flooding carries many contaminants, so our SERVPRO technicians wear suitable personal protective equipment such as overalls, waterproof gloves, and boots. If we suspect mold in the basement, we wear protective face masks to stay protected from the mold spores.
At this point, our SERVPRO technicians can take your items to a safe location and prepare the area for cleaning and restoration. We can also determine what is salvageable and what is not. If a carpet is in the area, we can pull it back and remove the underneath padding. Usually, we discard the carpet and padding after exposure to floodwater. It is essential to reduce the moisture in the basement by using fans and dehumidifiers. Opening the windows can also help in ventilating the site.
Now that the basement is empty, we remove all the paneling, sheetrock, and insulation that came into contact with the contaminated water. By shoveling, we can remove the mud and other debris from the room. We then choose appropriate cleaning agents to clean the site. Through deodorization, we can address the odor problem, introduce space heaters, and use other suitable drying techniques to dry your property. It is necessary to disinfect the area to limit the chances of mold growth.
