Professional Water Damage Remediation Services In The Beverly Hills Area

Water damage can strike any home at any given time. Perhaps a pipe burst, or a water supply line was cut. A washing machine could leak, or your bathtub could overfill. There are countless ways that water damage can come to affect you and your home. What matters is that you take steps to ensure that the damage does not worsen through neglect.

In the case of your home, it was your dishwasher leaking during its rinse and drain cycle that caused water damage inside of your Beverly Hills kitchen. Having faulty appliances can be annoying, but it is essential for you to call for help to get them fixed when they cause problems like this. If your dishwasher begins to leak continually, that means that your wooden flooring is being constantly exposed to moisture and this can lead to further problems, such as mold damage.

Thinking ahead and laying out a towel under your dishwasher may seem like a good temporary solution, but the problem is that it does nothing to take the moisture away from your flooring. The wood still has plenty of time to absorb the moisture, and it can begin to bubble, crack, and swell as the water causes it to expand. It is in times like this that it is essential to call for a water damage remediation company, such as SERVPRO.

SERVPRO has a well-earned reputation of being Faster to Any Size Disaster. We always make an effort to arrive at your home swiftly, within a couple of hours of your initial call. However, beyond just fast service, our doors are always open, and SERVPRO can come to your home at any time. Our technicians are IICRC-certified and expertly trained to handle any damage that we come across.

When it comes to your water damage, our SERVPRO technicians can arrive with advanced equipment to begin the restoration process. We can lay drying mats on your floor and then also search for a way to get air movers, or air-blasting tubes, under your flooring so that we may expose both sides of the wood with dry air. Once we're finished drying the water damage in your home, the last thing SERVPRO can do for you is to give you the number of a reputable appliance service company that can fix your leaky dishwasher.

If a leaky appliance causes water damage in your home, never wait to get help. Get in contact with SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood by phoning (310) 390-7540. 24/7, we are always ready to help you.

Why You Should Choose SERVPRO For Water Damage In Your Westwood Home

In Westwood, damage to even a modestly sized home can run into thousands of dollars after even just a day or two. Expensive furniture, carpets, and other high-end items in the home need immediate care and restoration to begin as quickly after a disaster as possible.
 
Most Westwood water damage results from a failed plumbing issue, and not from a storm or other natural event. SERVPRO technicians and specialist train to quickly respond, removing this water from the home as fast as possible and immediately begin restoring both personal and structural property. Our office maintains a deep inventory of the latest equipment needed to stop damage and return as much of the home to its original condition.
 
After removing the water, our immediate task is to begin drying as much of the home as possible. One of the methods we can quickly set up in minutes involves dehumidifiers. These machines draw water from the air and nearby property such as curtains and upholstered furniture. Removing moisture and lowering the humidity level in the home augments our other methods as well. Drier air allows evaporation to happen more quickly which helps to save building materials like drywall panels.
 
As the dehumidifiers work, technicians begin using extraction devices to dry carpets. For most, that means using extraction wands which efficiently remove water from carpets and carpet pads. For thicker carpets, SERVPRO specialists can also use a riding extractor. The driver propels this larger device which has a platform that uses his weight to press down on the carpet and pad, allowing it to remove more water. Regardless of the cost of the carpet, most pads are cheap, and we nearly always advise replacing them than go to the expense of attempting restoration.
 
As specialist dry the carpets, team members remove furniture to either an unaffected part of the home or to a covered area outside. They place the items on blocks or pallets, and immediately set up fans to increase air circulation around them. The fans naturally speed up the drying process without the risk of cracking or splitting the damp wood.
 
If needed, team members can also use air movers to generate warm air across the surfaces to force out moisture. They monitor and adjust the level of heat and the airspeed to prevent accidentally causing secondary damage.
 
SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood uses these first actions to reduce and eliminate the effects of water damage in area homes. If you need us to help return your home to a safe, dry condition, call us at (310) 390-7540 today.
