Storm Damage Sump Pump Failure Can Result In Flood Damage To Your Stockton Home Sump Pumps Help Stockton Properties Mitigate Storm Damage--SERVPRO Tip

Stockton Structures Under Water from Storms--Call SERVPRO

Stockton has a rich history, but with this age comes the understanding that many homes have gotten constructed well before modern implements to divert water. While there is certain equipment that can get installed into your home to help contend with water that works its way in (sump pumps being a good example), these are not cure-alls to the problem that exists by any stretch of the imagination.  

Many people who have equipment like sump pumps installed in their homes understand that if this equipment were to fail one day, the result could be a significant water emergency. Without other means of water diversion like functioning French drains or adequately applied waterproofing to the exterior of your foundation, you can be dealing with flood damage to your Stockton home if equipment like your sump pump fails and severe weather strikes.  
 
The unfortunate truth about machinery and equipment like this is that it is not designed to work forever. In fact, even the best pumps are only rated to get used for a specific number of years before they require replacement. When they officially malfunction or quit altogether, the resulting water damage to your lower levels can become catastrophic. Our SERVPRO team can respond quickly in an emergency situation like this and work to keep the damage from getting worse.  
 
With any flooding event to your home, regardless of the cause, our restoration process remains the same. We begin with extracting the present water from the affected area. With substantial volumes, a truck-mounted pump from our fleet often gets dispatched to the site. Once the standing water gets removed, drying efforts with air movers and dehumidification equipment can begin. Other crew members may simultaneously be relocating personal belongings and furnishings to dry regions of the home if there are any.
 
An overall assessment can get done by our SERVPRO restoration specialists to determine the cause of the flooding and offer solutions to prevent it from reoccurring. While the construction of your home decades ago might have left you without modern water diversion devices, there are still ways to seal up weakened areas to prevent unabated water penetration.  
 
When you encounter flood damage to your home, it is often something best left to professional restoration specialists like ours. We can ensure that all of the water gets successfully extracted so that there are no lingering effects for you or your family. You can reach our SERVPRO of Stockton emergency response team anytime at (209) 477-3090.
