California Dreamin' or Nightmare? Flooding in Stockton Means a Call to SERVPRO
Making Safety a Priority during Situations Involving Flood Damage Exist in Stockton
Our state holds so many various and drastic changes within its borders and Stockton residents need to prepare for the possibility of any of the disasters that might happen. Crises can happen without warning, and many can create severe property damage as well as risky conditions that can cause injury or loss of life.
SERVPRO technicians live in the same communities our customers do, including Stockton, so we understand how disasters like flood damage can create a multitude of unpleasant life-changing problems. Mudslides may also occur in areas where wildfires have stripped the landscape of trees and vegetation. We can undo the damage and make it plausible for your family to return home. We work as quickly and as steadily as possible to make this happen as soon as possible for you.
Flood damage can cause structural damage that can make your home to twist. If your front door is suddenly out of square and does not close, there is a structural problem. These slight movements might not seem like much because your home remains in the same place, but glass windows can break and shatter under the slightest tension. Flooding brings in filthy water that hides these shards and other dangers from view. We wear personal protective equipment to protect us from cuts and punctures from glass and other sharp objects.
Our cleanup crews use submersible pumps to remove the water left behind and then switch to hand-held extraction units to remove water retained in smaller areas. Once we get this excess removed, and it can take days, we can concentrate on getting the carpet out so we can dry the flooring underneath. Removing materials left soggy by dirty, contaminated water means we can dry less. It also means we have less to clean and sanitize, making our work progress even faster.
Because flooding can happen at any time, we enthusiastically encourage area residents to prepare for flood damage and other disasters during National Preparedness Month. During such incidents, having enough food and clean water for your family in the event you become trapped in your home becomes a crucial step in protecting your loved ones. The Red Cross can help you learn how to prepare in other ways that can make life more comfortable for youngsters who may not understand the disruption flooding can place on communities.
SERVPRO of Stockton wants to ensure all our residents live in clean, sturdy homes, and mitigating flood damage can make your home temporarily unfit to house your family. Call us at (209) 477-3090, so we can help make everything normal again for you.
