Mold Damage is Best Identified and Remediated by Trained Professionals. 

While they may initially seem insignificant, mold growths have the potential of causing substantial damage to your home and greatly impacting its livability. 

In order to preserve your home’s fitness as a residence, aesthetics, and value, San Leandro mold removal companies like SERVPRO believe it is crucial to catch potential water damage and related mold issues early. Although professionals, equipped with moisture sensors/meters and infrared cameras, are most capable of doing this, homeowners can identify problems by looking for the following telltale signs:

  • Discolorations, often black, brown, green, or pink, on ceilings, walls, baseboards, and floors
  • Cracking and peeling of wall paper or paint
  • Deterioration of plaster and drywall
  • Warping of structural elements
  • Unpleasant musty odors

Once located, our trained technicians can often relatively quickly mitigate and restore mold-related damage by:

  • Expertly fixing water leaks
  • Removing standing water with wet vacs and water extractors
  • Using air movers, dehumidifiers, and Injectidry systems to dry impacted structural elements and household contents
  • Eliminating mold growths with EPA-approved antifungals
  • Neutralizing foul mold odors with advanced foggers

So, if you ever need help eradicating mold, call SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 for assistance.

Trained Remediators Can Do Various Things to Restore Your Fire-Damaged Residence. 

Although a fire’s impact might initially seem insurmountable, there are things an experienced remediation service can do to effectively clean up and rehabilitate your property.

When your house burns, the combustion process affects both your home’s interior air and surfaces throughout it. Therefore, San Leandro fire damage restoration experts must take measures to address both of these issues. When cleaning interior air, technicians generally:

  • Employ cutting edge air movers to remove smoke and related odors
  • Filter interior air with scrubbers
  • Use Ozone machines and Vaportek systems to eliminate unpleasant smells
  • Work to prevent odorous particles from spreading around your residence by cleaning HVAC ducts with specialized equipment

Other innovative methods and gear are used to restore fire-damaged surfaces in your home, which include:

  • Using dry cleaning sponges to wipe away non-grease residues
  • Scraping away charred residues with abrasive blasting or wire brushes
  • Removing thick combustion remnants from delicate surfaces with the peroxide active cleaning method
  • Employing advanced foggers and injection devices to deodorize impacted surfaces/materials 

With all that said, if you ever need assistance restoring fire-related damage, call your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480.

San Leandro, Home to Numerous Thriving Businesses, is Susceptible to Flooding.

Business Owners Benefit from San Leandro’s Opportunities But Also Suffer Its Hazards.

San Leandro has developed into a thriving commercial town. Over the years, this East Bay community’s proximity to San Francisco has fueled its growth and attracted various types of businesses to its environs. Initially, San Leandro became a center for the meatpacking industry, drawing in operations like the Santos Linguisa Sausage Factory and Saag’s Artisanal Meat Company. The town’s population ballooned following the Second World War, increasing from about 20,000 in 1945 to an estimated 90,000 today. This rapid growth attracted other types of businesses, like the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, Maxwell House, The North Face, and JanSport, to the area. Today, like other parts of the southern Bay Area, this community is quickly becoming another home to the tech industry. 

The Environmental Perils of Operating a Business in San Leandro 

While San Leandro is an excellent place to locate your business, it is also susceptible to numerous potential environmental perils. The most serious of these regional dangers are substantially increased risks of earthquakes and flooding. These catastrophic events could be caused by any of a number of occurrences like:

  • Movement along the Hayward Fault, which runs under San Leandro, or one of the other six significant faults that pass through the Bay Area
  • Tsunamis, resulting from seismic activity along the Pacific Rim, which could deluge the local area
  • Strong spring and summer winds that could possibly cause significant tidal flooding
  • The failure of the Lake Chabot Dam, which recent studies have shown could send a seventy-one-foot tall wall of water toward our town
  • Rising sea levels resulting from climate change, which could make flooding much more likely in the not-so-distant future

Ultimately, potential earthquakes pose one of the greatest threats to business owners and residents of the San Leandro area. In fact, just along the seven major faults in the region, the United States Geological Survey estimates that there is a 62% probability that a 6.7 or greater magnitude quake could occur between now and 2032. The chances of this occurring are greatest along the Hayward Fault that runs under our community. 

Local flooding can result from earthquake-related events, wind action on tides, catastrophic dam failures, climate change, or other causes. Regardless of how flood damage occurs, SERVPRO of San Leandro is always ready to help your business recover and can be reached at (510) 352-2480.

SERVPRO Responds Fast to Perform Water Cleanup in Affected San Leandro Homes 

San Leandro is a town in Alameda County, California, located on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay between Oakland and Hayward. 

The History of San Leandro

The ancestors of the Ohlone people were the first to inhabit this region between 3500 and 2500 BC. The English settlers referred to them as Costanoans, while the Spanish settlers called the natives the "coast people." Captain Pedro Fages, a Spanish soldier, and Father Crespi, a Catholic priest, led Europeans in the area on March 20th, 1772.

The city is situated on the Rancho San Antonio and Rancho San Leandro Mexican land grants. The city's name refers to a sixth-century Spanish bishop, Leander of Seville. Rancho San Leandro was the smaller land grant with around 3,600 hectares (9,000 acres). In 1842, Jose Joaquin Estudillo was given the land. In 1820, the larger Rancho San Antonio, which was around 18,000 hectares (44,000 acres), was given to Don Luis Maria Peralta, a Spanish soldier. 

At the beginning of 1855, William Heath Davis and John B. Ward Estudillo's sons-in-law came up with the town's site, which later became San Leandro.

From the 1880s, the city records a historic Portuguese American population. This is after Portuguese laborers from Azores and Hawaii began to settle in the city and start business and farming. According to the 1910 census, the Portuguese Americans accounted for around two-thirds of the city's population.    

The city first became Alameda county seat in 1856. However, in 1868 a devastating earthquake in Hayward Fault destroyed the county courthouse. The county seat was reinstated in 1872 in Brooklyn, California.

Brooklyn and its neighbors San Leandro fielded the Brooklyn Guard, a California militia during the civil war.

Among the cities built during the era of post-World War II in California was San Leandro. The town had restrictive covenants that restricted property owners from selling properties to minorities such as African Americans. By 1960, the city had become entirely white because of the covenant, while Oakland city had a significant African American population among other minorities.

Later on, the United States Supreme Court declared that such covenants are unenforceable. According to the census held in 1970, San Leandro was an 86.4 percent white-non Hispanic community. In the 1980s, San Leandro's demographics began to diversify. The population of Asian Americans began to rise in 2010.

San Leandro's economy

The city has been home to several food-processing plants and a wide range of corporate businesses like:

Coca-cola: It is a multinational beverage corporation invented by John Stith Pemberton in 1886. The company manufactures, retails, and markets nonalcoholic drinks.

Ghirardelli: Incorporated in 1852, an Italian chocolatier Domenico Ghirardelli founded the chocolate company. The chocolate company is the third oldest in the United States.  

North Face: Founded in 1968, the outdoor recreational company produces outdoor equipment, footwear, and clothing. The company became a fashion style symbol in the late 2000s.

OSIsoft, LLC: It is an application software manufacturer for real-time data management. It was announced in August 2020 that Aveva, a UK-based production company, had agreed to purchase the company for $5 billion.

Between 1949 and 2015, a coffee roasting processing plant in Maxwell House produced the Yuban brand. Besides, the city also hosts five major shopping centers, including:

Westgate Center

Marina Square center

Bayfair Center

Greenhouse Shopping Center

Pelton Plaza

Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy and Cassidy, the founder and president of OSIsoft and the city's residents, started developing the public-private partnership in January 2011. The city approved fiber optic installation under the city's streets in the existing conduits. The U.S Economic Development Administration awarded the city a $2.1 million grant to facilitate 7.5 miles of the fiber-optic network. After the company completed the network expansion in 2014, the fiber optic network had a total length of over 18 miles. Only available to business users, the network can transmit up to 10Gbit/s.

The City's Parks

The San Leandro Shoreline Recreational Area consists of San Leandro Marina, a docking facility, a group of picnic areas, and trails. Also, the city services 16 other parks. All the parks are open to the city's residents and visitors. San Leandro's Department of Recreation and Human Services also manages and staffs other recreational facilities, including:

San Leandro Family Aquatic Center

Marina Community Center

San Leandro Senior Community

The most popular recreational area across the city is Lake Chabot Regional Park. The park's scenic camping site, fishing, and hiking trails make it the most popular recreational area. The Children's Memorial Grove in Fairmont Ridge Staging Area has a stone circle and an Oak grove. The stone circle has an annual listing of children's names who passed on due to violence across the county.

A water loss incident can ruin any property. When it happens, reassurance comes from knowing that professionals can bring things back to normal.

Staying Healthy is Crucial for Everyone in San Leandro 

Spending time at the park with family in San Leandro means fresh air, sunshine, and physical activity. Watching what you eat is only part of taking good care of yourself. Walking is excellent exercise. It requires no equipment, costs nothing, and is an outstanding choice for any age group. Families with young children can bring strollers – eliminating the need for a babysitter. 

Kids often get a more strenuous workout just because their play activities are more active than walking. Climbing the ladder to use the slide, pumping the swing to go higher than anyone else, and crossing from one side to the other on the monkey bars all require a fair amount of exertion. Running from one area to another also gives kids a decent workout. 

San Leandro has a Park Near Your Home 

There are over twenty parks in San Leandro, including an option for those who want to exercise their pooches. You might already know some of these, and others might be complete surprises to you. Here are a few that might interest you and your family. 

  • Bonaire Park, situated at the corner of Juniper and Sagewood, is an interesting park. The round hills provide children with the thrill of rolling down the hill and climbing back up again. Adults and teens might want to bring a horseshoe set and play a few games at the facilities southwest of the playground area. Several picnic areas, complete with a barbeque pit, near the playground area, lets parents keep an eye on their children.
  • Chabot Park, found just past the bridge on the south of Estudillo Avenue at Sylvan Circle, has horseshoe pits and a volleyball court. Very picturesque, many families choose this park for natural shots of their children playing on the swings and jungle gym.
  • Grover Cleveland Park is a small neighborhood park sitting on O'Donnell Street. Its benches and playground are in shaded areas with winding walkways.
  • Heath Park Tennis Courts, near 143rd Avenue and Rose Drive, can give you and your opponent some practice time while you improve your technique.
  • Marina Park includes the Dog Park. The Parks Administration cautions dog owners to be mindful of the separate areas based on large or small dog breeds. Up to three dogs per person and each dog must remain supervised, making separating dogs impossible to do correctly. Leaving a dog in the vehicle during a visit so they can take turns is also extremely discouraged. Different visits ensure the safety of park visitors and their pets.
  • Memorial Park sits across from Bancroft Middle School has areas for sports activities and quiet time where you can sit and think or read a book. One of San Leandro's first parks, it has two larger play areas for children to enjoy.
  • Root Park provides a much-needed green space in downtown San Leandro. Located at the intersection of Hays and E. 14th streets, visitors can see the San Leandro Creek, as well as the bountiful plant specimens found throughout the park.
  • Thrasher Park is located at Davis Street and Orchard Avenue. Although it is the oldest park in San Leandro, it has modern amenities not found at many other parks, including a skateboard park. 
  • Warden Park is near the intersection of Warden Avenue and Tudor Road. Perfect for parents of toddlers, this smaller-sized park has a tot lot. Smaller-sized playground equipment is much safer for younger children, easing parents' minds. Older kids might find the nearby basketball court entertaining, as well.
  • Washington Manor Park is on Zelma, near Manor Boulevard. Friends and family can team up and play a game of tennis, basketball, or softball. 

You can call the San Leandro Recreation and Human Services Department at (510) 577-3462 for more information regarding parks closest to you, upcoming events, to reserve a pavilion or picnic table, park rules (including those specifically for the Dog Park), or other questions. 

Heavier Rain and Storms are Often the Cause of Flooding in San Leandro 

City engineers take many factors into the ongoing design and development of San Leandro. Before construction begins on a new project, project managers must explain its expected and potential effects on the city. 

Approval of each plan only happens after consideration of the project, and sometimes adjustments are necessary. 

Despite such planning and the precautions involved, new projects can change the way rainwater flows across the surface of our streets, lawns, and parks. Fast-flowing rainwater can push tremendous soil amounts in unexpected ways, leaving drainage paths blocks for subsequent storms. Flooding can happen to businesses and houses, leaving residents with damaged property, inventory, and belongings. 

SERVPRO's trained technicians use special equipment to remove floodwater swiftly. We arrive, ready to start and bring: 

  • Truck-mounted pumps,
  • Hand-held extractors,
  • Ride-on units, and
  • Hand tools, like mops, buckets, squeegees, and sponges. 

When we remove water after a flood or violent storm that forced rain into your open doors or windows, we do everything we can to get it dry as fast as possible.  

We do more than removing the water. We also dry out things saturated with water from flooding or rain. We assess contaminated items after consulting with the customer, disposal and replacement, restoration, and further assessment as our options. This extra step saves our customers money and reduces waste while still providing them with the service they need in a crisis. 

Flooding destroys flooring, the base of any living space or work area. We remove carpets after our ride-on extractors make them lighter by pressing out and extracting dirty water. Reducing carpets' weight makes it more efficient to remove them and start working on drying out the subfloors below. Methods like this help facilitate an efficient restoration project from start to finish.  

SERVPRO of San Leandro works with property owners in our area after disasters as flooding happens. Removal of floodwater is crucial to a successful recovery and making everything "Like it never even happened." Call us for all your water removal needs at our 24-hour emergency line, (510) 352-2480.

San Leandro residents enjoy the benefits of living in the Bay Area, with its industry and intellectual capital. Most importantly, the whole region offers the best nature has to offer. 

Hiking trails, the ocean, a vibrant arts scene, and sports events are all within city boundaries and adjacent to other communities. Ideal for families, San Leandro boasts of top schools and plentiful parks, libraries, the Oakland Zoo, and other options for children.

If you are new to the area, you may find San Leandro very convenient to your lifestyle. Its transportation infrastructure includes numerous freeways and highways connecting most of the Bay Area and the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), which provides a quick alternative to travel to nearby locations. In terms of connectivity, you can rely on LIT San Leandro, a private-public partnership built to offer the fastest internet to the city’s residents. Both the Oakland Airport and the San Francisco Airport are close-by and an open invitation to see the world and for visitors to arrive and experience what the area offers.

High Population Diversity

The diversity in San Leandro’s population dates back to the city’s origins. The area was first explored in the 1770s by Spanish settlers and took an important role following the Gold Rush in 1849. Even though its core business has shifted from agriculture to manufacturing, the city holds true to its roots. Fertile lands and easy access to the water made the place ideal for settlers and commerce. Eventually, neighboring Oakland became the seat for Alameda county, but San Leandro continued its growth. Its neighborhoods still reflect Spanish architecture, and homeowners take special care to preserve their character and stay true to their heritage.

Annually (except for 2020), San Leandro holds its Cherry Festival, which celebrates the city’s heritage and looks into the future. This remarkable confluence of vendors, live entertainment, a showcase of local artists and crafters is a veritable reflection of what makes this community so rich. Nearly 30,000 people attend the Cherry Festival each year. If you are not prone to crowds, you can visit one of the many beautiful parks or walk alongside the Marina, including dining, golfing, and boating activities. 

The city’s proximity to other Bay Area locations, including Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Oakland, broaden your scope even further. A quick BART ride can transport you into the unparalleled offerings of San Francisco, where there is even more to explore. The city’s diverse landscape becomes evident as soon as you step on the train and continues as you visit its landmarks. The Golden Gate Bridge, Haight Ashbury, the cable cars, and its financial district are juxtaposed to become the fabric that wraps a thriving business and artistic community. Whether you visit attractions like Alcatraz or decide to have afternoon tea at the Fairmont Hotel, people-watching alone can fill up your day. The traditions still evident in Chinatown are in stark contrast to the more progressive areas of San Francisco, and they all enrich the visitor’s view of the world.

Protecting Your San Leandro Home

Homeowners in the Bay Area, and San Leandro and particular, need to pay close attention to events within and outside their homes to identify risks and be prepared to deal with them. Although average temperatures are generally pleasant and make for the enjoyment of outdoor activities, storms can cause significant damage. The same can be said for accidents within the home, such as kitchen fires and ruptured pipes. Those, too, may leave homeowners needing professional restoration services.

The crew at SERVPRO of San Leandro is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC), the certifying body in our industry that attests to our expertise level. Our experience in dealing with the aftermath of a storm or a fire makes itself evident from the minute we walk through your door. When you call our 24/7 hotline, you should expect-

  • Utmost attention to safety, including the use of personal protective equipment and establishment of physical barriers throughout your home as needed
  • Use of industrial-grade equipment tailored to the needs of your situation
  • Complete documentation of our process
  • Coordination with other relevant parties, including insurance and subcontractors

In the winter months, in particular, San Leandro residents may run the risk of stormwater entering their homes. Continuous copious rain can cause a rise in water levels and open houses to the possibility of flooding regardless of our efforts to prevent it. As some roads become unpassable and parts of the city come to a halt, homeowners find themselves needing professional help.
