Foster City Property Can Suffer Flood Damaging Events from Many Causes
Types of Floods and Flood Damage Restoration for Your Foster City Home
No matter where you reside, you can be a victim of flooding. Your home in Foster City is no different. There are various ways in which a flood can occur. The most common occurs when the ground cannot absorb all the melting snow or rain, a waterway is blocked by debris or ice, strong winds push seawater inland during a storm, or when a structure which is human-made fails, such as a sewer or dam.
If your home in Foster City has suffered flood damage for any reason, you need help from a professional remediation company. SERVPRO is standing by at all times to help you with a water damage emergency like this, no matter how big or small. The quicker we can get the water out of your home, the better, so we can try and avoid additional damage being done. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
The first type of flood that can occur is inland floods, which usually happen during periods of extended rainfall, or when levees or dams fail. The ground is not able to absorb the water quick enough, which results in water levels that are higher than usual. When the waters have invaded your home, our SERVPRO techs use industrial pumps to get all the standing water out as fast as possible, and then we use industrial fans and dehumidifiers to finish drying your home back out.
The most dangerous kind of floods, flash flooding, can happen without any warning at all. They are the most significant cause of deaths related to weather. They happen when water fills streams or rover beds that are usually dry or when storm drains are overwhelmed.
River flooding generally follows extended periods of rainfall which is heavy, creating water levels to rise over the edge of the river bank. Severe tropical storms can create the waters of the river to rise in a rather short amount of time. Melting ice and snow can also increase the chances of a river flood. Coastal flooding is caused by a mixture of a storm surge and heavy rainfall. If they are combined with a high tide, the water levels can get very high.
