When a Butte County Property Sustains Flooding Damage, Call SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor!
It is tragic when a flood brings devastation and water damage to a Butte County home -rapid water removal, clean up and repairs must certainly get underway as quickly as possible for your home to get back to normal.
Safety is a top priority. If you have experienced a flood in your home, proper safety evaluation should be completed before entering. Call SERVPRO to have a water mitigation specialist come inspect the home for damages and any safety issues you may have.
Call your insurance agent to find out if you will be covered under your homeowner policy. An insurance adjuster will be dispatched to your property to inspect the damage and offer a settlement. Ask for help in retaining a competent water damage restoration company. SERVPRO does work with many agencies and municipalities in California. We can assess and document all water damaged items, help you with your claims and paperwork, and expedite the water removal and restoration. We can check your home for structural damage and any possible electrical issues since water and electricity are a dangerous duo. This inspection will indicate to you the severity of the water damage that your home has suffered and any potential health issues you may have to address during the process of getting the flood damage repairs done on your home.
When these concerns have been addressed, and if you have been given permission to enter your home, take pictures of the flooded areas of any damaged belongings, including damaged furniture. This, along with the input from SERVPRO, will help you to be fairly compensated by the insurance company.
Once you have done the documentation and the adjuster had done his inspection, then the clean-up starts to get under way. The home needs to be made dry and needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent any other damage from occurring. This will also lessen the likelihood of mold and mildew growth. Contamination is a given if the flooding is the result of groundwater intrusion, whether from rain, bodies of water, or a sewage back-up. Do not attempt to clean and sanitize on your own! The potential for future illness is too great.
It is wise to call the professionals from SERVPRO; because they can immediately begin to pump out the water and mitigate on-going water damage. And they have the skill and knowledge, along with the professional equipment required to start and complete the entire restoration process for you.
After the water removal and clean up are in operation, then repairs need to be done. They could be extensive, depending on how much structural damage has occurred and the condition of the contents of your Butte County property. SERVPRO can start with water removal and finish your project with complete restoration services, "Like it never even happened."
