Floodwater Cleanup and Seal Beach Home Repair with SERVPRO®

Floods are among the most prevalent natural disasters in the world. The negative impacts of floodwaters are many and can take months to restore. Floods can damage your home’s foundation, causing stuck windows and doors. The water can also cause framing to swell and warp. As it wicks through drywall, mold growth can develop on walls. Luckily, with proper interventions, a flooded Seal Beach home isn’t necessarily a total loss. Rapid floodwater removal is crucial for minimizing damage. We can build back properties to preloss condition.

Safety is a priority before attempting floodwater removal in your Seal Beach home. Floods saturate entire areas, but it doesn’t take long before the local infrastructure drains the accumulating water. It is recommended to wait until the water recedes before entering your home. Even after this happens, a professional assessment of hazards by a professional is essential. SERVPRO has experienced crews with the expertise to quickly and efficiently restore your house to its preloss condition. We have the equipment to help with quick moisture extraction. We also clean and disinfect your property, preventing mold growth.

Flood extraction equipment

  • Extraction units
  • Pumps
  • Deep extraction tools
  • Wet/dry vacs

Our crews may employ various extraction equipment if the water level is significant. For example, a submersible pump can efficiently eliminate large quantities of water. To ensure efficacy, we place the pump at the lowest flooded area and ensure it is completely submerged. In case the water contains solid materials, a self-priming trash pump is appropriate. A wet/dry vacuum can be effective for areas inaccessible using a pump. We use the vacuum to remove water from upholstered furniture, carpets, and other surfaces.

Drying and Dehumidification

After extracting the bulk of the water, you still have to deal with the humidity and moisture in the air. These conditions may initiate microbial growth. Dehumidification is vital in addressing humidity and wet materials. We place air movers in affected areas to evaporate the embedded water from materials and dehumidifiers to extract the water molecules in the air.

Drying equipment for effective moisture removal

  • Structural cavity drying equipment
  • Air moving equipment includes axial air movers and centrifugal air movers
  • Dehumidification equipment includes refrigerant dehumidifiers
  • Air filtration device
