If there is one thing about California, the weather can be unpredictable. One moment, we are trying to survive a heatwave and then we are dealing with a flash flood the next. When a random storm strikes, disaster can wreak havoc on your property.

Flash flood emergency in Glendale

There are precautions you can take to prepare for a storm, but what if the damage is already done? This is what happened to a local Glendale resident when a random storm came rolling in. The couple was at work when the storm damage happened to their home. The rains were so heavy, it completed flooded their backyard and seeped into the kitchen. There was so much water that flooded their home, it even made it to the living room and the guest bedroom.

As soon as the couple got home, they were over their heads. With rainwater all over the first story of their home, they had no idea what to do. They acted fast and called SERVPRO of Central Glendale right away. Since it was so close, our water damage technicians were there within twenty minutes of them calling. After the homeowners signed paperwork and contacted their insurance company, our team got to work.                     

Water damage technicians to the rescue

First, our team inspected the damage and took information down regarding the water damaged area. They took photos and drew out a sketch of the floorplans that helps the team locate all the affected areas. After that, the water damage technicians began extracting all the access water in the home. After the water was completely extracted out, the floors and carpet were still very damp, and it began to smell like mildew.

From there, they began to place air movers and air scrubbers to help clean the air and dry the floors. Each day for a week, our technicians visited the property to check the dryness and humidity percentage. It took about 6 days for everything to be completely dry.
