Identifying Hazards After Canoga Park Water Damage

As important as it is for our SERVPRO professionals to quickly gain control of a water loss incident in Canoga Park homes, safety is a priority. Not only does a cautious step or two prevent injury and damaging conditions for our technicians, but it can also reduce the risks to our customers as well. Many hazards can exist in a home during flooding or substantial water loss scenarios, and we have trained our team members to identify these risks and address them directly.
 
Knowing what could be a threat to the health and wellbeing of our technicians and customers is a vital element to successful contending with water damage in Canoga Park homes. That mindset of doing things the safest possible way is a point of pride that sets us apart from competitors in the area. We have earned accolades as a top San Fernando Valley franchise because of our focus on more than just the immediate effects of a water loss incident. Identifying the hazards present in a home begins with a thorough inspection of the property.
 
Depending on the severity of the water loss incident, many structural concerns could exist that could unexpectedly threaten the safety of our restoration technicians. Overhead threats like ceiling tiles and materials weighted down by water saturation could collapse. Similarly, wood flooring and subflooring material can deteriorate and weaken to even the weight of foot traffic, leading to falling hazards.
 
Lighting is always a concern for our employees, as it is difficult to gauge our restoration of a home if we cannot see the work getting done. We can supply work lights and power to a damaged property when necessary, notably when flooding conditions from broken pipes exist in the house. These instances can also provide a secondary threat for our team in shock hazards, so we may have no choice but to temporarily disconnect power to the house to extract, dry, and clean up the damages.

 We approach disasters with a safety-conscious attitude, and that can help to keep our technicians and customers protected as we efficiently address the effects of the loss. However, we can help by giving our SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills team a call at (818) 998-1500.
