Water damage to the ceiling from roof leak Our highly trained crews are ready to respond 24/7 to storm or flood damage in Sacramento, CA.

Floods rank as one of the most common and widespread natural disasters in the United States.  Hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes might seem like the most dangerous natural hazards you could ever face, but floods and droughts cause more fatalities to Americans over time.  SERVPRO of North Sacramento warns that whether you live near a coastline, along city streets, in the mountains, near a river, or even in the desert, there is always great potential for flood damage from a storm.  A natural disaster is characterized by a great deal of damage and/or loss of life. The most destructive natural disaster in economic terms in the United States was a storm on August 29, 2005.  Hurricane Katrina made landfall along the Gulf Coast early Monday morning August 29th, 2005 as a large category four hurricane.  Sustained winds were around 145 MPH in Southeast Louisiana.  Katrina continued northward, affecting areas from near New Orleans, Louisiana to near Mobile, Alabama. 

Flood damage can affect your business in a variety of ways and can range in size from being isolated to a single room to entire floors being fully submerged.  Knowing how to prepare and deal with potential flooding in advance can affect how much of your property can be restored and how much has to be replaced.  Remember, Faster to Any Size Disaster is not merely a slogan. It is a reality.  It is an honest description of SERVPRO of North Sacramento's ability to receive a call and respond to a client in need, regardless of property size or type.  Learn how to be prepared BEFORE a storm affects your business and your life.

  • Take the greatest caution while entering your home, and wear sturdy shoes and protective clothing when dealing with flooded areas.
  • Do not attempt to operate any electrical equipment while standing in wet or damp locations.
  • Throw away all foods—even canned goods—that have come into contact with flood waters.

Sacramento Flooded Homes Need the TLC of SERVPRO to Mitigate the Damages

Issues You May Deal With after Flood Damage in Your Sacramento Home

Flooding can happen following a hurricane, a tornado, or a flash flood, and even a well-prepared Sacramento homeowner can be caught up in flood damage. Having floodwater in your home can be dangerous and inconvenient.

In the aftermath of flooding in your Sacramento residence, you need to handle several issues. It is beneficial to hire a certified company to help you manage the destruction. SERVPRO can help you deal with issues such as:

Damaged floors

During groundwater intrusion, mud and debris can cover wood flooring. Our staff can dry your floors by using pumps or wet/dry vacuums to remove the water and using air movers and dehumidifiers to dry them. Shovels and squeegees may be the first tools used to clear away the murky deposits. If the flood damage is severe, we can tear out the non-salvageable boards and dry the underpinnings or concrete pad.

Ruined appliances

Electric appliances that get submerged in water can stop functioning. We can assess your electronic equipment to determine the severity of the damage. If they can be salvaged, we can wipe water and debris from their surfaces and contact an electronics restorer to repair them.

Health risks

Regrettably, flood damage can impact your health and that of your family members negatively. Floodwater carries debris and silt of every kind. It can contain chemical contaminants, disease-causing organisms, and possible fecal matter. If your carpeting and other porous material are contaminated, we recommend replacing them. Restoring porous materials like drywall and soft materials like carpets after Black Water absorption is not a wise decision. Though we strive to restore, and not replace, flood-damaged materials, safety comes first.

Mold

Mold grows in moist areas, and a flooded house is perfect for mold to breed. Mold can lurk under wooden floors, on the ceilings, or walls. Mold spreads fast, and it needs a trained eye and advanced tools to locate hidden mold in your home. Our team can identify the areas where mold is present and physically remove contaminated porous materials. We can also dry the affected surfaces thoroughly. Our team can also use quaternary compounds and chlorine bleach solutions to inhibit mold.

Bad odors

Bad odors are linked with flood damage because of the dirty water and possible mold infestation, which leaves a stench. Your upholstered furniture and draperies can have unpleasant smells. Our SERVPRO team can remove the bad odors using thermal fogging equipment and air scrubbers to leave your indoor air fresher and healthier.

After experiencing flood damage in North Natomas, South Natomas, and Sacramento Airport, you need fast, professional help. SERVPRO of North Sacramento can help you remove the water and clean up your home. Call us at (916) 587-3438 for efficient restoration.

When Flood Damage Hits Your Sacramento Home!

Sacramento is in a unique geographic position for flooding, with three major rivers; the Sacramento, San Joaquin, and American and a labyrinth of waterways surrounding the California capital. This city is consistently rated first or second in the nation for the most likely to flood. When a major flood hits and your home incurs damage, you may wonder what steps you need to take to preserve as much of your home as possible. 

When flood damage impacts your Sacramento home, you need to spring into action to lessen the amount of damage quickly. After the floodwater recedes, contacting a professional for immediate help is often necessary. The professionals at SERVPRO understand that floods do not happen during regular business hours, so we are available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. 

SERVPRO technicians arrive promptly to assess the damage and begin the task of drying, cleaning and restoring your home. While you wait, there are a few things you can do to assist in the process.

  1. Using gloves and old towels or rags blot to remove as much as the sludge left behind as possible. It may be contaminated, so exercise caution. Since flood water recedes, you should not have to worry too much about extracting too much water from your home. 
  2.  Remove items from the floor, wiping them down and moving them to an area of your residence that was not impacted by the flood. Ensure all valuables are relocated to safe, dry locations.
  3. Turn on the air conditioner in summer months to aid in lowering humidity levels in your home, exercising caution around electrical cords.

When the trained SERVPRO professionals arrive, they take over, assess the situation, come up with a customized plan for your unique situation, and spring into action to ensure the least possible damage to your home. Technicians extract any remaining excess water, perform a flood-cut if necessary, dry, and clean the impacted areas. We make it, "Like it never even happened." Depending upon the amount of flooding, the location within the structure, and weather conditions, the timeline for restoration can vary.

When flood damage hits, contact SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438. We are available to assist at all times for any disaster.

Secrets of Rebuilding After flood Damage Hits Your Sacramento Home

9/15/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO van in front of a home. We can help you through every worry you have in your Sacramento water damaged home.

SERVPRO has the down low on saving you after water damage hits your Sacramento home. 

Flooding necessitates rebuilding operations in affected homes for several reasons. If flood damage occurs because of severe weather such as a hurricane, various forces such as wind and fast-moving water can teardown different sections of the property necessitating rebuilding as part of the restoration. Exposure to water also leads to deterioration of materials this necessitating removal.

Proper rebuilding after flood damage in your Sacramento home is only possible if you identify all affected areas before starting the process primarily when water is the leading cause of deterioration. Leaving water in concealed areas can force you to redo the process or lead to extreme problems such as mold. Our SERVPRO technicians use a wide range of moisture detection tools to establish all wet areas. The common ones include:

  • Thermal imaging cameras
  • Moisture sensors
  • Manometers
  • Moisture meters

The rebuilding process can pose risks such as injury to the people involved or further damage to the structure, especially when tearing down deteriorated materials. For example, it is possible to cut power cables or plumbing lines when opening up concealed areas such as walls and floors. Our SERVPRO technicians consult building plans to establish the position of utility lines. We also use different tools for different tasks, including rubber hammers, to minimize the chances of unintended damages and injuries.

When flooding only affects a section of the property, there is a need for containment to limit the spread of debris and even fumes from finishing products such as paint. If such materials are left to spread uncontrollably, the restoration process can take longer than expected. Our SERVPRO technicians use different containment approaches. We can place plastic sheets over air vents, doors, and windows when doing controlled demolition. We also have heavy-duty plastic bags to hold materials such as carpets removed from the structure.

Flooding incidents can leave a wide range of physical damages in your North Natomas, South Natomas or Sacramento Airport home. Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 to help with the rebuild. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

That's Right, Sacramento! No DIY Storm Water Removal--Call SERVPRO

Flooding in Your Sacramento Home Requires Professional Cleanup

There are circumstances which impact your Sacramento home that the average homeowner cannot handle on their own. With the right equipment and expertise, professional restorers like ours can overcome situations like flooding in your residence, where inadequate cleaning and attempts can only serve to make the damage worse and allow for secondary effects that are hazardous to the house and its occupants.

Overcoming flood damages in your Sacramento residence often requires an immediate response from dedicated and experienced professionals like our SERVPRO team. With the right equipment and training, flood effects can get handled systematically to lower the impact and irreparable damage to the contents and structural elements of the property. Even still, many homeowners work to try and cut corners or save out-of-pocket expenses by attempting to clean up flood damages on their own.

A concern about improper restoration techniques from DIY approaches is the potential to miss lingering moisture and dampness trapped in spaces challenging to see. In flooding situations, water damage can affect wall cavities, the space above the ceilings, and penetrate below flooring materials. Traditional equipment for cleanup cannot reach these affected areas, so the dampness persists.

Lingering moisture in these areas can lead to secondary effects like mold and microbial growth throughout the house. Within as little as a couple of days, mold spores can seat into organic materials like drywall and wood framing to feed on this matter and grow as a colony. If mold spores throughout the affected environment have a chance to colonize and begin to spread throughout the home, you are also going to need our SERVPRO IICRC-certified remediation technicians to overcome this situation as well.

While no homeowner gets prepared for the possibility of unexpected flooding in their home and the damage that it can do, having the right team of professional restorers ready to help you, can make all of the difference in recovery. You can always depend on our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team of qualified specialists to help you assess the situation and begin work quickly on returning your home to preloss condition, "Like it never even happened." Give our emergency response team a call anytime disaster strikes at (916) 587-3438.

Preparing Now can Help Reduce Your Need for Water Removal Services in North Natomas

When areas in and around North Natomas are affected by severe weather, residents need to know how to protect their homes and other structures. After events cause damage to homes, SERVPRO goes to work making everything “Like it never even happened.” We also have crew members that specialize in restoring personal belongings, household furnishings, and other items.
 
When a home in North Natomas sustains flood damage, the contents of that home also suffer. We have various techniques that get these items clean and sanitary after filthy floodwaters contaminate them. Using cleansers specially chosen for their ability to strip soiling away without damaging the finishes on your objects, we clean up items with hard, durable surfaces. Special basins allow us to clean softer items, including stuffed toys and decorative pillows. Thoroughly rinsing everything we wash helps ensure that filthy soiling no longer contaminates these items.
 
We use a special compartment to help these items dry faster. We take readings to show us when these items reach optimal dryness, so we know when to start the deodorization process. During this step, we implement either ozone gas or hydroxyl gas. Hydroxyl is often preferred, especially in situations involving water. Ozone can cause discoloration when materials retain small amounts of moisture. Hydroxyl gas does not create this problem, and other benefits include its safety around occupants, both plant and animal. We can continue to work in the area when our hydroxyl generator deodorizes your belongings. After we complete the process of restoring the smaller-sized contents of your home, we can also deodorize the rest of your home. Even as our other team removes damaged wall materials and flooring, odors can remain. Eliminating the sources of these smells with hydroxyl gas or thermal fogging can make working inside your home during restoration much more efficient. It can also keep new materials from picking up these odors.
 
SERVPRO of North Sacramento wants to help homeowners in Gardenland and Willow Creek, as well as those around the Sacramento Airport successfully mitigate flood damage. Contact our 24-hour service line by calling (916) 587-3438 whenever your home sustains damage.

Your Insurance and SERVPRO Can Cover Your Roof After a Storm Loss in Sacramento

Severe Weather Can Allow Flooding in Your Sacramento Home

As a Sacramento resident, you are all too familiar with the severe weather systems that can impact the area with little warning. Preparing for some of these occurrences is next to impossible. Many homes throughout the area become damaged even with precautionary measures. If this damage is severe enough, effects like flooding the interior of your home could result.

While you might not consider your Sacramento home to be at high risk for flood damages, but there are many situations in which these outcomes can occur. Roof damages are among the most common avenue for floodwaters to enter a home, especially when these effects are not widespread throughout the community. The troublesome thing about roof damages is that many homeowners are not aware that there is a problem with this area of their house until it has failed to protect the interior.

By the time that you recognize flood damages starting in your house, it is beyond your capabilities as a homeowner to stop this intrusion. The best advice that you can follow is to reach out to our SERVPRO water damage restoration specialists to rapidly respond and work to mitigate your loss while we set up our plan for restoring the damages the flooding has caused to your residence. Swift water and moisture removal are crucial.

One of the first tasks that our team does, once we arrive at your home, is to seal off the source of the flooding as best as we can. This process can involve boarding up or tarping over penetration points in the supports, plywood or shingles of your roof. This temporary repair can thwart the water penetration and allow our SERVPRO technicians the opportunity to begin crucial steps like extraction and drying.

There are many different ways that storms and their severe conditions can damage your home. While you cannot always prepare for these scenarios, you can make a plan to know whom you call when disaster strikes. Our SERVPRO of North Sacramento emergency response team is available 24/7, let us help you overcome the damage in your home. Give us a call today at (916) 587-3438.
