Remediating Flood Damage is More than Using Drying Equipment

When it comes to flood damage that has impacted a cramped room inside of your home, a team of cleanup and remediation cannot merely set up drying equipment and call it a day. In reality, there are many steps a team of technicians must take before the drying part of remediation can take place, usually starting with investigating the damage.
When it comes to the flood damage in your Bel Air kitchen, cleanup must happen first for a few reasons. Your kitchen is crowded, and water has undoubtedly slipped through the nooks and crannies that could not be addressed without some thorough cleaning. In fact, not only has the water impacted your tile floors, but it has also slipped under the cupboards and soaked into the base of your walls. The only way a team of technicians can ensure that the entirety of your kitchen is at an appropriate moisture level is to gain access to the entire space.
When SERVPRO arrives at your house, we can dive right into clearing out the clutter. We'll throw away any garbage, store all of your cooking utensils and cutlery, and then begin the process of removing the cupboards from the kitchen. To clean your kitchen in the quickest way, several of our SERVPRO technicians can focus on removing a different object at one time, allowing us to deconstruct the objects and to do it fast.
While it may sound best to attempt to dry the kitchen as it is, the reality is that it would take infinitely longer to do so. Taking the cupboards, kitchen sink, stove, refrigerator, and countertops out of the kitchen allows SERVPRO access to all of the floors, as well as the base of the walls. Additionally, it allows our techs to dry the cupboards individually.
Once we finish cleaning out the space, SERVPRO can focus on getting drying equipment set up. We use advanced technology such as dehumidifiers, drying mats, axial fans, and air movers to reduce the moisture in your kitchen swiftly. Using the devices in conjunction allows us to get the job done as soon as possible and then to return your kitchen its pre-flood state.
Never allow flood damage to sit unaddressed in your home. Reach out and speak to SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood by phoning (310) 572-6132. No matter the time, our techs are available to help you.
