Microbe-Filled Silt, A Part Of Flood Damage In Century City Properties
When flooding events happen, many times it affects entire neighborhoods or cities. However, flooding can occur on a single street in Century City and affect only the homes in that specific area. Flooding makes any home unlivable. SERVPRO can help you make it safe again by restoring things back to how you want and need.
Property owners in Century City with homes sustaining flood damage need a professional company to mitigate the problem correctly. The longer dirty water sits in your home, the more productive microbial activity becomes. Silt carried into your home by the floodwater contains not only pathogens and other microbes, but also the nutrients they feed on to survive. When we arrive at your home to mitigate flood damage, we have with the tools with us to remove the silt revealed when we extract the water.
Silt can end up in the tiniest nooks and crannies inside your home's furnishings and structure. Carpeting and padding become destroyed, requiring its removal. Once we pull up both carpets and the pads underneath, we can clean and dry everything. Even though the floorboards never came in direct contact with the water, they can still contain silt in between and under them. Removing this keeps your home from harboring microbes that could cause illness.
Air scrubbers use HEPA filters, and so do the vacuums we use to extract the silt. This ensures that the finer particles of sediment do not end up in the air, but instead end up trapped where we want. Keeping the air cleaner protects your family and our IICRC-certified employees from inhaling prospectively harmful contamination.
Flood damage also creates strong and unpleasant odors, many times caused by these same unwanted microbes. Organic debris can also contribute to this odor. Higher temperatures outdoors also make such scents more noticeable than on colder days. We use highly effective techniques that sufficiently eradicates odor-causing contaminants. SERVPRO works closely with you to ensure that we resolve this situation to your satisfaction.
