Flood Damage Professionals in West Hollywood Discuss What Can Happen When Windows Break

When storms make their way into West Hollywood, many times they bring with them windy conditions. High-speed winds can cause objects to become airborne and collide into your building's structure, which can cause your extensive flood damage. If wind gusts gain enough speed, they can pick up just about any item in your or your neighbor's yard, pick it up and blow it into your house. Once any part of your building's exterior gets struck by an object such as a rock or branch, it could create a hole in the exterior shell of your house. If the interior of your home gets exposed to moisture by a hole in a wall or window during a storm, it is wise to call in a professional flood damage restoration company such as SERVPRO.  

Since the glass making up your windows is the most fragile material on the exterior of your home, it can be broken the most easily if a foreign object collides into it. Once your window breaks when it is raining, water can quickly build up inside your home forcing you to call in the experts at SERVPRO to conduct professional flood damage restoration in West Hollywood. When the winds pick up during a west coast thunderstorm, branches can break, and landscaping materials can become dislodged and break your windows. Many times rain can come down very quickly in the region, making the problem of you having a broken window much worse.  

When the rain comes into your structure, it is considered a category two or grey water situation, which is because any water getting into your home from the outside that is not from a freshwater source could be contaminated by harmful parasites or bacteria. When building materials inside your house get wet by grey water, it is still possible to dry out your carpet without removing it, but it becomes necessary to take precautions. In these situations, our SERVPRO materials use specific chemicals to kill bacteria and antimicrobial solution to prevent fungal growth.  

If you ever suffer from water-related problems after a storm, call SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132 24 hours a day.
