The Best Way to Dry Your Flooded Century City Home
Flood Damage Restoration in Your Century City Home
Groundwater flooding can cause a host of issues for homeowners in Century City. Spring rains and spring flooding can cause your sewer system to back up, damage to your structure, plus damage appliances. There are fortunately some remedies that can help you to minimize the damage.
When the groundwaters have entered your home and caused flood damage to your Century City structure, you need the help of the professionals. At SERVPRO, we train and equip our technicians to handle these situations so we can get the water out of your home and get everything dry again as soon as possible.
When groundwater flooding is not as severe, you can block or raise your appliances, furniture, or other items which could be affected by coming into direct contact with the water for an extended time. Also, you could install a false floor over the slab of your basement, as it lets water drain under the false floor so it can drain to a sump pump.
When SERVPRO technicians arrive, we remove any standing water in your home can be taken out with powerful, truck-mounted pumps. Upon completion, we can proceed with getting your home dry again. We may need to remove furniture and other items to an offsite location while we restore your home, then return them when finished with the restoration. Dehumidifiers and industrial strength fans help us dry the affected areas quickly. These devices are monitored by us each day to ensure we get the fastest drying time possible.
It may be a good idea to install a drainage system around the edge of your basement floor. It allows water to channel from the walls to a sump or drain for removal. If your foundation or basement doesn’t already have a drain tile installed, think about an excavation of your home’s exterior to allow you to install washed stone gravel and a drain tile, plus waterproofing of the walls. The drain tile makes it, so water diverts away from your residence if there is a slope.
