SERVPRO Techs Use Their Training and Equipment in Canoga Park For the Best Outcome After Storm Damage

When Canoga Park residents think about flood water in a home, often it conjures up a house with a couple of feet of water within the structure. In reality, thousands of dollars in damages can occur from a mere inch of water, and it often recedes as fast as it entered.

Flood damage cleanup in a Canoga Park home entails several levels of service from SERVPRO. The technicians work to quickly ascertain the migration path and get the water extracted from the structure. Controlled demolition actions are common as walls that wick flood water require removal above the waterline to halt the absorption. Wood flooring of all types reacts to exposure to water. 

  • Hardwood flooring may buckle or crown
  • Engineered wood usually has a very tough top coat but can still warp if it remains in contact with moisture
  • Laminate wood-look flooring fares badly against floodwater and usually requires removal

After drying, SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians can inspect hardwood floorboards and use their moisture meters to determine any residual dampness. On a case-by-case basis, hardwood floorboards may have the potential for restoration through sanding, refinishing, and resealing.

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500 serves the local Canoga Park community for any size and type of storm and flood damage restoration. The technicians are on-call 24/7 to make the damage, "Like it never even happened."
