Training and Collaboration Are Why SERVPRO Flood Restoration Succeeds in Valencia

The key to mitigation and remediation of Valencia stormwater damage is a combination of mastery of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) coursework and on-the-job implementation of IICRC international standards. Our consistency in following IICRC protocols concerning effective water removal, cleaning, disinfection, deodorization, and especially drying interventions delivers outstanding results, why SERVPRO ranks highly among storm and water damage providers in our community.

Why Does SERVPRO Stress Psychrometry -- the Science of Drying?

Thorough drying of all structural components and contents must occur to prevent progressive deterioration of building materials and mold damage. Winding up a water damage repair project without determining and achieving appropriate drying goals defies industry best practices, practically guaranteeing long-term issues even after the apparent restoration of a leaking roof from storm activity or intensive basement flooding cleanup.

What Does Applied Structural Drying Include?

Detection of water migration and measuring absorption levels in structural components must be ongoing during storm flood restoration. Returning building materials to their normal moisture percentages requires:

  • Setting an individualized baseline by measuring moisture levels in unaffected spaces in the residence
  • Extracting as much liquid water as possible using truck-mounted and portable equipment before drying commences
  • Designing scientifically-based drying perimeters of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to facilitate the evaporation of absorbed stormwater

Critical Note -- a collaboration with property owners to minimize the disruption of drying while supporting followthrough is why SERVPRO technicians always leave written instructions with homeowners. We also monitor the drying and equipment regularly until moisture levels meet prescribed marks, open at all times to residents’ questions.

Fidelity to industry standards and best practices is why SERVPRO of Santa Clarita Valley delivers desired results after severe storms. Call (661) 296-4600 for a prompt assessment and provision of emergency services, water damage remediation, and comprehensive drying.
