There are a number of reasons why your Surrey basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Water Damage in Langley

Water Damage Water Damage in Langley Langley Water Damage

The unfortunate reality is that a water damage crisis can take place at any moment. Whether it’s leaking pipes or a broken dishwasher, unexpected flood damage is a frightening and traumatic experience. In addition to excess water creating structural damage to your residence, it can make the air circulating in the property unhealthy and encourage the rapid growth of bugs and mold.  

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mold may be more likely to make some people with asthma, allergies, or other breathing problems sick. At SERVPRO of Langley we know you want things to return back to normal as soon as possible when flood damage in Langley happens so our experienced technicians will come into your home, industrial, or commercial property and assess the damage so they can create your own personalized restoration plan for flood damage repair.

Our technicians are professionally trained to extract water, encourage structural drying, and perform comprehensive site inspections with documentation. While you are waiting for the technician here are a couple of tips to make your water damage cleanup process as smooth as possible.

1.      Wear goggles and gloves if you decide to do any cleaning. If you touch mold spores with your bare hands you can trigger an allergic reaction or respiratory problems.

2.      Make sure to wear boots, long pants, and a short-sleeved shirt. You don’t want to get any “grey” water, water with biological or physical contaminants on your skin.

3.      Go to the local hardware store and pick up a N-95 respirator mask (around $15.00) so you do not breathe in any mold spores.  

At SERVPRO of Langley our teams are dedicated to drying and restoring your structure as soon as possible so you can forget that this whole mess ever happened in the first place. We are the experts for flood damage repair in Langley.
