Call SERVPRO for Flood Damage Response After Heavy San Jose Storms

All types of floods cost a homeowner time and money, but nothing is as impactful as a storm flood. If you do not address the contaminated floodwater quickly enough, it could lead to irreparable damage. In some instances, flood damage could make it challenging to sell your San Jose property later. Professional intervention is best, and SERVPRO is available 24/7 for emergency response. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Avoiding house flood damage in San Jose is ideal, but SERVPRO knows that emergencies happen. Thus, we are here to make it “Like it never even happened.” Our experienced water restoration technicians (WRT) have seen and handled flood situations of all kinds.

  • We wear PPE with all storm flooding projects, including boots, gloves, coveralls, eye protection, and respirators.
  • Our team keeps your interior safe during restoration by performing board-up and tarping to address roof damage, broken windows, and more.
  • All unsalvageable materials get disposed of according to local guidelines, and controlled demolition involves installing new materials to bring everything back to pre-flood condition. 

Steps to take to help avoid flooding in the future

You can do several things to limit stress and heartache moving forward. Just a little preparation could mean protecting your home, family, and belongings from flooding:

  • Research flood zones to see if your property is in a high-risk area.
  • Move electrical components so sockets and switches are at least a foot above the base flood elevation. 
  • Slope the land away from your property to keep water from coming in during significant rainfall.
  • Install a water leak alarm and automatic shut-off system to help prevent leaks and damage.
  • Think about installing a sewer backflow valve to keep waste from entering your drains and home.

After flooding on your property call us at SERVPRO of NE San Jose – (408) 834-7663.
