Electronics Flood Damage Restoration In Glendale
Storm Water Can Easily Damage Electronics and Appliances
We all use several electronic devices, gadgets, and accessories to help make our lives easier these days. A growing number of us rely on these instruments to get us going in the morning and keep us productive throughout the day, week and months ahead.
With these types of electrical devices found throughout your home in Glendale, flood damage can be especially devastating. Turn to our expertly trained staff for all of your flood damage restoration services.
Some of the more common electrical items recovered during SERVPRO restorations include Computers, Smartphones, and Laptops. However, there are a ton of other devices that require professional attention, including Televisions, DVD Players, Stereos, Microwave Ovens, Coffee Makers, Digital Clocks, and a variety of electronic appliances. Any electronic equipment has specific steps that should be followed during a flood to ensure proper care is taken to prevent damage.
The first step that our SERVPRO technicians take is to ensure that an electrical hazard doesn't exist by unplugging any of these items before handling them. Even the smallest objects can hold a significant amount of power that will be amplified by water, so don't take any chances.
Next, we extract any standing water from the surrounding area and remove excess water from outside of each electrical device using a clean, dry towel. Our SERVPRO staff then relocates each item to a safe location with the proper temperature and humidity levels to allow the devices time to dry properly. This is dependent upon the severity of the damage received by the circuit boards and peripherals. If the internal parts of the electronics are wet, we DO NOT open up the cases for drying. We will suggest to you that we pass these items on through to a trusted partner that specializes in electronics and appliance repair.
It is important to avoid running an electrical charge through a wet appliance, doing so would cause additional damage. So, turning equipment on to check to see if one was affected is not a good idea.
Your electronic media such as CD, CD-ROM, and DVD's require special handling to recover from water exposure. Dehumidifiers can assist our SERVPRO technicians with removing moisture and avoiding damage to such media sources. We are very cautious with these items and will not take undue risks; we do suggest that you do not attempt DIY restorations.
