Our Professional Guide To Flood Damage Restoration In San Jose
Professional Help For Flood Damage In San Jose
San Jose covers much geographical area and features many micro-climates. Although the rainfall totals are not above average community-wide, and the city can have an arid feel, the fact is that flooding is possible from rain showers and storms here and in the surrounding mountains. If your home falls victim to unexpected flash flooding, we are ready to lend a hand.
When overflows from the creeks and other waterways in San Jose cause flood damage to your home, a list of many tasks needs to be completed to return your abode to preloss condition. It is also imperative that response is fast and professional, with trained technicians and commercial grade equipment available to aid the recovery. One of the cornerstones of our service covers all aspects of flood assessment, water removal, and structural drying.
Waters from overland flooding by definition are contaminated. Many different hazards find their ways into the water washing across roadways and yards and industrial sites. If roads are flooding the sewer system often backs up, sometimes depositing human waste into the lower areas of your home. When SERVPRO arrives at your home, a quick assessment of the quality of water trapped inside your home guides our crew as to their next steps.
Category 3 or black water contains sewage and debris like dead insects and animals. Landscaping and roadway residues like fertilizers, pesticides, and oil or gas are toxic. Water filled with these substances is hazardous and must be contained and disposed of according to local regulations. SERVPRO crews understand the rules concerning flood waters and are familiar with the proper procedures required to remediate them. We also carry and use EPA registered disinfectants that treat flooded areas to kill a wide range of pathogens.
Our service vehicles have all the equipment needed to pump and extract the flood waters out of your home. SERVPRO employees also master moisture metering and thermal scanning detectors to find hidden pockets of water for release and removal. Any moisture left behind continues to break down building materials and threatens your home with the potential for mold damage. Any lingering contaminated flood water also poses a risk of exposing your family to dangerous viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
