Three Vital Mitigation Actions for West Hills Homes After Water Damage

10/29/2021 (Permalink)

Regardless of which direction the water came in from, team SERVPRO can help. Contact our technicians 24/7 for effective water removal services.

Mitigating Loss Often Falls to Three Specific Approaches Happening in Damaged West Hills Properties

It is always wise to act fast when water damage occurs. Mitigation can take many forms, and each of these emergency services helps shorten the ultimate restoration and recovery time to a more manageable situation. Emergency services also help to improve the efficiency of specific restoration tasks like:

  • Drying
  • Deodorization
  • Reconstruction
  • Mold removal

Removing At-Risk Contents 

Among the first stages of water damage mitigation in West Hills is assessing the threat to exposed contents and personal belongings. Relocation can be a quick and simple step to protect these items when considerable harm is possible. In addition to moving these contents to a new area of the residence, we can also provide focused cleaning and restoration of personal belongings at our nearby SERVPRO facility.

Extracting Standing Surface Water

Another focal point of mitigation after water damages is the need to remove standing water from the house. We have clear extraction plans that use several tools and machines from our industry-leading recovery inventory, such as submersible pumps and vacuums. Surface water elimination protects the exposed flooring and wall system materials.

Controlled Demolition and Repairs 

As leading restoration IICRC-certified professionals in the area, much of our action is intended to prevent the need for tear-out and reconstruction. When these outcomes are inevitable, we have a general contractor license to provide a wealth of build-back services that can help. From controlled demolition to full-scale reconstruction, we can make water damage "Like it never even happened."

Flood and water damage can both be traumatic for the property. Without swift and deliberate action by experienced restoration professionals like our SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills team, your home and its belongings can become irreparably damaged by the loss. We are ready to help 24/7 at (818) 998-1500.
