Water Damage in Tarzana or Reseda?

There are different water categories 

  • Category 1 CLEAN :Water from a clean water source, like a fresh water line for a dishwasher. This water will not cause illness or any ill effects.
  • Category 2 GRAY:Water that may cause illness through contact. It may have bacteria in it.
  • Category 3 BLACK:Water that is highly contaminated. Contact can cause severe illness or death. Think sewage backup, an overflowing toilet, or storm waters.

 You have a 24 to 48 hour window from the time something gets wet until mold begins to grow. After that, mold will multiply rapidly. When mold growth starts, you will need the services of a professional mold and water remediation service to safely remove the mold. SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda is here 24/7/365.

Water Damage Types

SERVPRO - Water Damage Tips

There are two types of water damage. Water can enter from the top and from the bottom. If it enters the property from the roof it is usually from loose shingles or gutters that are not clean.  Clean your gutters!  It is definitely an inconvenience but, fortunately, it is usually covered by your insurance policy.

It enters from the base of the property it is called groundwater infiltration and this type of damage is probably not going to be covered.  Either way the damage needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible. 

The water remediation professionals at SERVPRO  have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to make it, “Like it never even happened."
