A Riverside City Like Stockton Can Flood During a Storm and Cause Damage
SERVPRO Technicians Effectively Dry Out Your Property After Flooding
When a city is founded beside a river, it provides an excellent source of running water, but the city also has the potential of sustaining flood damage during storms. The unique geographic position that some homes hold near the river means that they also run the risk of flooding during an unusually severe storm. Excessive rainwater, intense winds, and debris that are carried by the rushing water make this situation dangerous for the longevity of your home. Fortunately, once the storm settles, and the water returns to the river, professional help nearby is only a phone call away.
A wayward rock breaking a window is an easy way that water can rush into your living room and cause flood damage in Stockton. Your hardwood floors, expensive furniture, and electronics are all in danger from the moment the water touches them. Unfortunately, the longer the water sits without removal, the more damage it can cause to your precious belongings.
Wood can warp and blister when exposed to water while it absorbs it, and electronics can short out. Allowing this water to sit stagnant for even a couple of days runs the risk of letting microbial growth to occur. Mold growing in your home can cause further damages and thus eat more expenses to remediate. It is best to call for help as soon as you find flood water in your home.
