La Jolla Flood Damage: What to do and Who to Call

Floods happen, especially in La Jolla you are near enough to the coast to receive some heavy specific weather and run off from the mountains. The very terrain that makes La Jolla "the jewel of San Diego" also creates potential flood conditions.

The specialty La Jolla flood services listed in our Blue Book are the places to go for help when flooding happened. In order to know which company you need, you need to take a breath and look at the damage you have. In order to prevent a possible flood from happening, you should also have one of the La Jolla plumbers featured in our listings come out to your home to test your pipes and equipment.

Did the floor affect any appliances or electrical sources? If the flood water level in your house exceeded the height of the California code for placement of electrical outlets, then you had best called a company like Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air Restoration or Bestway Flood and Fire. If the water was high enough, you can be assured that your electrical system and all your appliances have been affected.

Water below the outlets. If the water did not reach the outlets, you still need to call a professional service. Mold can ruin a home, not just from a health standpoint, but it can destroy the structural integrity of the house. To avoid this, you need a service that specializes in fast cleanup. These companies, like the La Jolla based Pronto Flood, Brink's or La Jolla Flood Restoration can have a crew there fast with commercial dehumidifiers and other tools to get the moisture out before it can cause more havoc.

What's Important. The most important thing to do, after a flood has happened is to document the damage for insurance. Take photos and videos, get a write up from the flood recovery specialist company you hire and make sure to call the insurance company the second after you call the flood damage one.
