Flood Damage Experts

Sometimes when enough rain hits an area, flooding occurs. Even if there isn't enough rain to cause a flood, it is possible that water still damages your Beverly Hills home. Storms bring about high-speed winds that sometimes also cause damage.

Often, winds blow a rock or other object into a window causing rainwater to pour inside your house. Anytime rain finds its way into your home; it is wise to call SERVPRO's flood damage specialists in Beverly Hills. It is always a possibility that rainwater damages contents and building materials once it enters through a broken window.

Any time rainwater damages an area inside your home the water gets tested for contamination levels. If the water has a high level of contamination many of the contents and building materials inside the home get discarded. If the contamination level is low, many times the contents and materials get saved by drying them out.

SERVPRO's skilled restoration team not only mitigates problems with your building materials and structure, but we also handle damage to contents such as furniture. Water can cause several issues to different types of upholstery. Wooden framing inside upholstered furniture sometimes swells causing joints to loosen. Moisture also causes glues to break down which damages the furniture.

Often, water causes spots to form on fabrics requiring that our crew wets the entire piece of fabric evenly so that lines and spots do not stay permanently. Dust covers sometimes bleed colors into other materials. Metal objects on furniture at times rust causing rust stains on the cloth. Wooden legs on furniture possibly stain your carpet if left sitting on top of it while the furniture is still wet.

Our restoration crew knows the particular procedures that minimize damage to your furniture. We lift the furniture off of your carpet and put foam blocks underneath the furniture's wooden legs. Cushions get taken off the couch and get placed in a tent formation. Wax paper gets placed between any metal and fabric while the drying process takes place. Then, we put in air movers and dehumidifiers that lower moisture levels within the furniture and help prevent mildew growth.

Any time a storm breezes into your neighborhood and damages your home, it is wise to call in the experts to handle the situation. We at SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood are a call away at (310) 390-7540, and we are here to help you with problems at your house 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
