Our Skilled Flood Damage Professionals Can Save Your Stockton Home
Professional Flood Damage Control In The Stockton Area
With the San Joaquin River running through it, Stockton is a town used to floods and the damage they bring almost every year. Residents understand that mitigating and eliminating the effects of the floodwater once it starts to recede takes a restoration service with years of experience, and training on the newest restoration equipment available.
To handle Stockton flood damage properly, SERVPRO Cleanup & Restoration trains every team member as a certified Water Damage Restoration Technician or WRT before they go out on a service call. Then, they can perform every task needed to draw water out of the home.
Pumping out floodwater can take many labor hours. Each WRT has access to the newest commercial-grade pumps and extraction devices to ensure they accomplish the operation quickly, and without causing secondary damage to the floors or walls. For very large homes in deep water, WRTs use truck mounted devices to continuously remove water overnight or throughout a couple of days if needed.
If the floodwater has mostly receded or is limited to one area in the home, SERVPRO technicians also have access to extractors that look much like a standard water-vac but are more powerful and adjustable in terms of vacuum and a heating element that can also be engaged to begin the drying process simultaneously. In tight areas like closets, they use a device which is worn like a backpack and can draw out 5-12 gallons depending on the size of the waste tank.
Regardless of the amount extracted, all floodwater contains some level of dirt, animal waste, and other contaminants. WRTs pump or empty all floodwater directly into the nearest sewer access point. If one is not available, technicians direct it all into a tank truck for delivery to a wastewater treatment plant for filtering and recycling.
In addition to our city, SERVPRO of Stockton also services Lincoln Village, Ortega, and other surrounding communities along the San Joaquin River. If your home has been affected by floodwater, regardless of how much or how little, call us today at (209) 477-3090 to restore it to its pre-flood state. We are here for you.
