When Stormy Weather Invades Your West Hollywood Home
Flood Damage Experts In West Hollywood Discuss the Possibilities Of Contamination
When stormy weather blows into the West Hollywood area, elements created by the storm can negatively affect your property. When thunderstorms are severe, flood damage can quickly occur at your residence. Storms can bring about torrential downpours and hurricane-speed winds. If something blows into one of your windows or your roof, a hole can get created that can allow moisture to enter your dwelling. As soon as water gets in from the outside, prompt flood damage mitigation by a professional company like SERVPRO becomes a necessity.
The longer moisture sits inside your home and saturates organic materials, the worse the problems can get. Our SERVPRO technicians always work as fast as they can when mitigating any flood damage situation in West Hollywood so that they can minimize the severity of the issues caused by the poor weather. If items that make up the structure of your house stay wet, they can lose their structural integrity and fall apart. If organic substances inside a building stay wet for more than two days, fungal contamination becomes a possibility.
Whenever dealing with water coming from the outdoors, our SERVPRO team knows that it is different than dealing with problems created by clean water sources. Rainwater gets either a category two or category three classification depending on if it is just water falling from the sky or if it is muddy, murky water that has built up on the dirt outside. In both types of scenarios, we treat the water as if it contains harmful bacteria and parasites.
When dealing with these gray or black water situations, many of the materials the water touches must get removed and replaced. In some cases, non-porous materials can be dried out and saved if they get affected by contaminated water. However, the affected materials still always get sanitized and treated with antimicrobial chemicals or, in more severe cases they get sprayed with specialized sealant paint. If you ever suffer damage to your place of residence after a storm, call SERVPRO of Belair / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132 24/7.
