Removing Flood Damage from Canoga Park Residences

If your house is flooded, don’t panic. SERVPRO has certified technicians and professional equipment to handle any situation. Contact us 24/7.

Flood Damage Requires Widespread Cleanup

Cleaning up after flooding involves the removal of debris and building materials impacted by the disaster. Restoring your home after this water intrusion requires several phases of cleaning and recovery beginning as soon as our technicians first arrive at the address.

Clearing Standing Water

Removing standing water is one of the largest mitigation obstacles for flood damage in Canoga Park. Powerful units are needed to manage several inches, or even feet, of pooling in house rooms. The faster water can be pulled from the building, the more likely non-porous building materials can be saved and cleaned, though porous elements like drywall will likely need to be replaced. Debris in the water presents additional challenges, making it impossible to use the full measure of our extractor inventory to help.

Discarding Bulk Materials

Despite additional factors like contamination, saturated materials pose a concern for restoration professionals. Flood damage removal and cleanup in some cases means controlled demolition. Sagging materials and deterioration building elements threaten those in the immediate area for collapse or weakening, so SERVPRO professionals must remove them and discard them. Some affected materials might include:

  • Drywall
  • Carpeting
  • Insulation
  • Acoustic Ceiling

Resolving Residues and Soil Deposits

Flood cleanup and removal also means eliminating surface residues, staining, and potential contaminants. Surface restoration is one of the most important elements of post-flood cleaning. We have multiple disinfectants, sanitizing products, chlorine-based cleaners, and quaternary compounds to help eliminate flood soils without harming the surface underneath them. 

Flood damage cleanup can refer to many of the services and actions our SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills professionals take when reaching a home. Regardless of how the flooding occurred, we are a preferred choice to help with our fast response and experience in water recovery. Give our team a call now at (818) 998-1500.
