How Standing Water Removal in Stockton Can Get Complicated

Finding water damage in your home can be overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO to dry out your property and remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Looks Out for Many Possible Complications of Drying Out a Water Damaged Home

Standing water can be one of the most destructive forces possible to have in a home if it is not taken care of quickly. Without timely care and attention, standing water can create mold damage problems, destroy structural elements, and create persistent safety hazards in any affected areas. Standing water removal in Stockton must also be done quickly, lest the damage grow worse with time. SERVPRO can remove most standing water from your home in a matter of hours, but some variables can complicate matters for us.

Hard-to-Reach Places
While we do have the equipment required for standing water removal from Stockton homes' harder places to reach, the presence of water in these places can still make our work more challenging. In some cases, we may need to use portable water extractors when a vehicle-mounted pump would be desirable for the amount of water present. We take care not to cause additional damage to your home when finding solutions to water trapped in odd spots and carefully monitor the environment for additional problems (such as mold damage) that can result from a modified water extraction process.

Electrical Hazards
Some water disasters can create shock hazards as water overtakes power outlets, electronics, and common appliances in the area. SERVPRO technicians wear protective clothing to prevent most accidents from happening, but still, take care to exercise caution whenever these risks exist. We advise you to never enter an area with standing water to avoid risks of electrocution.

Structural Destabilization
In some situations, standing water may cause enough damage to the building to cause moderate or severe structural failures. Our inspectors are trained to look out for these indicators and advise both you and our technicians on risks present in the building. While we can still work in most areas with signs of structural damage, we must take extra safety precautions. Risks can multiply with time, so be sure to contact us early on to avoid as many issues as possible.
