How Do I Protect My San Leandro Business After A Water Spill?

Call SERVPRO to Rid Your San Leandro Business of Water Damage

Pipe breaks never seem to happen in the open, at a convenient time on a Tuesday. They always seem to be overnight on a weekend or about an hour after the store closes and no one is around. 

What Exactly Is Water Mitigation?

Commercial water mitigation in San Leandro businesses means reducing the severity of a water spill as quickly as possible. SERVPRO response teams can begin removing water and restoring your tux and formal dress shop within minutes after arriving in the parking lot.

What is the First Thing Team Members Do?

Our first task is to get the water out of your shop. Our teams usually begin with large pumps, but for a smaller operation, we begin with extraction wands. These devices work exceptionally well on concrete and wood floors, as well as commercial carpets. Water removal takes several days to a week for most stores.

There is still moisture in the air and trapped in carpets though. To finish the task and bring the inside humidity to a normal level again, our technicians use a combination of exhaust fans, dehumidifiers, and air movers.

Is There Anything I Can Do When It Comes to Mitigation?

Yes, absolutely! Even with our rapid response team, SERVPRO technicians still arrive an hour or more after someone notices the problem. Owners and employees can perform these tasks:

  • Shut-off the water. Every building has a cut-off valve or switch. If you can’t find it, call the Water Department immediately to do it for you.
  • Open the doors and windows. This allows water to drain out of the store and increases airflow to improve the rate of evaporation. 

Both actions help prepare your business for our response team but remember safety first. If there is any risk of being inside, wait for our team leader to help assess the situation.

How Severely Can Water Damage Affect My Oakland Car Rental Firm?

6/14/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Can Provide a Team to Help Stop or Reverse Some Effects of Water Damage Saving Your Business

Although water spills may not damage the cars, which are the main assets supporting your car rental businesses, other damages can occur, affecting your business negatively. SERVPRO responds promptly when called to help Oakland businesses hit by water spills.

What problems can impede business after water damage at my Oakland car rental service?

  • Malfunctioning electronics
  • Ruined documents 
  • Damaged façade 

After water spills and pools around the property, evaporation follows, increasing the humidity levels in the air. Such humid air spreads all over the property, finding a way inside many electronics, including computers and printers, although you might not notice. Later, problems arise when temperature changes lead to condensation causing water damage to the interior components of the electronics. Our SERVPRO technicians can help by dehumidifying the property to keep moisture levels in the air constant or regulating heating to prevent temperatures from reaching the dew point.

Can we salvage wet papers?

Water damage to papers is usually irreversible since it causes smudging of ink or matting. Such damage affecting contract documents or other records can be challenging to reconcile. The use of specialized techniques and quick action can help stop further deterioration. Our SERVPRO technicians take a couple of steps to help salvage your documents.

  • Freezing wet documents
  • Separating wet paper materials from dry ones
  • Drying items with specialized techniques

Freezing stops the mechanical disintegration of papers and dissolution of ink, ensuring that what was written on the paper remains legible. Applying sophisticated drying procedures such as sublimation, whereby the solid ice changes directly to vapor, eliminates chances of further damage to the documents.  

Apart from using sophisticated approaches to save your documents, our technicians also rely on simple solutions such as separating wet materials from dry ones to prevent the transfer of wetness.

A simple water spill can lead to complicated problems. Call SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 to manage any loss situation, "Like it never even happened."

My San Leandro Hair Salon Took on a Lot of Floodwater, What Can I Do?

6/8/2020 (Permalink)

Clear, blue splashing water For all of your flood damage cleanup and restoration needs, the team at SERVPRO of San Leandro is here to help.

Calling SERVPRO Ensures your San Leandro Business Gets the Prompt Flood Damage Cleanup It Deserves

Whether there is a little or a lot of flooding in your San Leandro hair salon, this is a mess better left to trained professionals to clean up. SERVPRO has the right methods and training necessary to get your doors opened up faster so you can get back to business. If there is any chance of harmful contaminants and bacteria, you can feel confident we do everything possible to have it cleaned and deodorized once the space is dry.

Will the Flooding Ruin the Floors?

When dealing with commercial flood damage in San Leandro, it is essential to pay attention to all building materials impacted by water saturation. Not only do we begin extraction measures right away, but we also take special care to use methods made for the type of flooring that you have.

What Makes SERVPRO Qualified for the Job?

We use specialized planning and techniques to execute each job with precision and efficiency. We have skilled water restoration technicians (WRT) on the roster who know the best steps for mitigation and water cleanup. While it may be tempting to try a DIY cleanup before we arrive, you can leave it to our trained crew so that no stone is left unturned.

There are many reasons you can count on us for dependable, cost-effective flood damage restoration, including:

    •    Advanced water extraction tools and technology
    •    Training that is fully compliant via the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)
    •    Professional-grade moisture detection technology
    •    Strategic material removal and replacement with controlled demolition
    •    EPA-registered, commercial-grade products for cleaning and sanitizing

Trying to navigate all of the potential contaminants throughout your hair salon is one of the initial tasks once we arrive. We must assign the right personnel and tools for water extraction, drying, and cleaning to facilitate professional results.

How Do You Address Different Types of Flooring?

If you have tile or concrete floors in your hair salon, which means they require immediate attention after extraction is complete. We work to clean the floors to limit the onset of bacterial and microbial threats that can worsen over time.

We Have a Cleaning Crew that Comes In – Can We Have Them Do the Work?

For something as substantial as floodwater in your business, hiring trained technicians is the best way to ensure you get the results you need. We want clients to understand that following a flood loss:

    •    Floodwater is known for having a range of contaminants within, including fuel residue, chemicals, debris, silt, and even fecal matter. Our team trained and certified to handle all potential contaminants and make sure that we limit or eliminate water migration.
    •    It is vital that standing water should not be left to linger for an extended period. Water removal must commence promptly to lessen secondary damage and restoration costs.

What Happens if I Wait Too Long to Have Restoration Begin?

Many issues become more substantial, the longer that you wait after a flood loss event. Depending on the time and the exposure, some of these effects could include:

    •    Breakdown of structural materials – Water left to linger can cause wood to crack, swell, and warp. Soaked drywall can warp and crumble, and the paint or wallpaper on the walls of your salon may peel and blister. Stains and musty odors may also develop, and any carpeting in the waiting area must be replaced entirely.
    •    Hazardous mildew and mold growth – Organic and porous materials like subflooring and sheetrock take on water. What this does is create a moist environment that becomes the perfect platform for microbial growth. The mold spores thrive on organic materials when temperatures and relative humidity are just right.

Our skilled crew gets to work fast to limit secondary damage when your hair salon suffers flood loss. We use a variety of commercial-grade drying tools as well as OSHA-approved biocides that help limit the onset of mold.

    •    Water extraction begins with the help of submersible pumps and truck-mounted extractors.
    •    Thorough drying is next, which includes the strategic placement of centrifugal air movers, fans, and dehumidifiers to speed up the process.
    •    If necessary, controlled demolition helps us remove all damaged materials for a full replacement.

Will My Salon Be Free of Foul, Musty Odors?

We have advanced moisture detection technology at our disposal, but we also come back to your place of business for follow-up moisture readings. With the help of moisture sensors and thermal imaging technology, we can pinpoint hidden pockets of moisture before they start to fester.

For all of your flood damage cleanup and restoration needs, the team at SERVPRO of San Leandro is here to help. Call (510) 352-2480, and we deploy a crew to your hair salon in at little as four hours to get to work.

SERVPRO Techs Eliminate Water Damage in San Leandro Homes with Sophisticated Tools

Did you know that freezing isn’t the only cause of burst pipes? When this type of disaster occurs in your San Leandro residence, it can be both sudden and overwhelming. However, there is a team that is ready to assist you.

If a plumbing malfunction requires water removal for your San Leandro home, SERVPRO can begin the cleanup process within hours of your initial contact. Your local SERVPRO is also licensed to render general contracting services (license #937457) to restore your residence after disaster cleanup has finished.

Preventing Burst Pipes in the Sunshine State

Californians might not have to worry as much about frozen climes causing burst pipes, but plumbing clogs and obstructions can cause similarly costly issues.

Common sources of pipe clogs include:

  • Fats, oil, and grease buildup in pipes
  • Non-flushable paper products such as paper towels
  • Sewer line obstructions caused by tree roots and debris

If carpeting outside of the bathroom has been affected by contaminated water, disposal may be necessary to prevent the spread of mold or microbes in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians Sanitize Your Bathroom

When a water damage situation involves the sewer system, sanitation is key to keeping your home safe. SERVPRO uses a variety of cleanup modalities paired with EPA-registered biocides to combat microbes and bacteria. These can include:

  • Pumps and sprays
  • Manual application with cleaning cloths and sponges
  • Injection systems

Sanitation is critical not only to successful drying but also to mitigating odors in tandem with deodorization equipment like ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers. After sanitation in a gray or black water situation, structural drying and repairs can begin.

SERVPRO of San Leandro offers a 24/7 cleanup that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (510) 352-2480 to have an emergency response crew at your home within hours.

 fire insurance policy form SERVPRO at its finest when it comes to your San Leandro fire damaged home.

With Our Central Location, Our SERVPRO Team Can Reach San Leandro Area Homes Fast in An Emergency. 

Because of how destructive fires can be even after they get extinguished, it is vital to secure professional restoration as soon as possible. Our professionals have multiple strategies to reach your damaged San Leandro home quickly after a loss like this, and this fast response can make a difference in the contents and structural areas that can get restored.

With our central location to those in the city and its surrounding areas, there are no delays in addressing fire damage in San Leandro homes and apartments. From the emergency services and fire debris removal to the various stages of mitigation and reconstruction, we have a team of qualified professionals to help make fire losses “Like it never even happened.”

What Are the First Steps After a Fire Loss? 

Knowing what to do after a fire takes place is not always clear. While the emergency aspects of extinguishment can begin immediately, there are many different avenues that you can take to secure a damage claim from your insurance provider or to have the house professionally restored by qualified technicians like ours. Here are some of the things you should prioritize after a loss:

  • Contacting Professional Restoration

One of the first steps that you can take is to reach out to our professionals to get personnel mobilizing to help. With our prompt response 24/7, we can arrive and begin the assessment and estimation that your insurance provider requires to approve damage claims.

  • Contacting Your Insurance Provider

Informing your insurance company about a disaster as it happens can help them to begin working towards helping you and your property in every way that they can. As a preferred vendor with local insurance outfits, our SERVPRO team can help to meet their demands and expectations for your home beginning as soon as we arrive.

  • Keeping Your Family Safe

One of the most effective ways for you to help in the restoration process is to ensure that you and your family are safe. We can recover and repair many areas of your home, but only after the all-clear from first responders and firefighters.

How Fast Can Professionals Arrive After I Call? 

Saying that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster is one thing, but showing it is another. We strive to provide the most efficient response during a disaster so that your home and its contents can be better protected from spreading fire and loss effects. In many situations, our SERVPRO team can arrive within hours of your first notice of loss (FNOL) with the equipment and skilled personnel to make a difference. We can ensure a faster response to your damaged home because we have:

  • Stocked READY Trailers
  • 24/7 Staffed Emergency Lines
  • Skilled Roster of Restoration Specialists

These three areas can help to decrease the time between our team getting notified of a disaster and rolling out to help. Our Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) have dozens of tools and products that can help in several ways to manage destructive lingering loss effects like soot, smoke, and odors.

What Mitigation Tasks Should Happen Right After a Fire? 

Because we can reach your property quickly after a loss incident, we can often begin several of the mitigation steps vital to protecting your home and its contents right away. While there are multiple approaches to restore and repair your fire-damaged home, specific mitigation tasks can be the most effective when applied as soon as possible. These include:

  • Controlled Demolition 

Removing damaged portions of structural materials like drywall and flooring can make the restoration area safer for technicians and reduce areas where odors and soot particles might be more concentrated.

  • Debris Removal 

By shoveling up debris, ash, and remnants of burned contents and materials, our professionals can better prepare your home for vacuuming and wipe cleaning necessary.

  • Content Management

This part of the restoration process involves protecting your possessions and belongings. In many cases, on-site relocation and cleaning can be all that is necessary. With soot and odor damages, however, pack-out to our nearby warehouse for concentrated cleaning might be the only suitable solution.

Is Restoration Fast? 

While we strive to provide an efficient and cost-effective series of restoration tasks when we first arrive, the final time that recovery takes varies from one residence to the next. Fast restoration solutions depend on the severity of fire loss effects throughout the house and all of the necessary steps in returning the house to its original condition.

Fires can be a traumatic situation for homes and businesses in the area, but our SERVPRO of San Leandro team can help. With experienced professionals and cutting-edge equipment, we can gain control of a fire loss emergency in your house. Give us a call today at (510) 352-2480.

Water loss in a retail store can happen because of several reasons, such as overflowing sinks, burst pipes, and a leaking roof. Your retail store can suffer immediate losses in terms of destruction to electronic equipment, merchandise, and fixtures. The water can also seep up walls into insulation and other structural materials.

How Can I Prevent Further Losses?

Water damage can cause you to incur longer-term losses such as lost business because of the time your store remains shut for cleanup and restoration. To prevent additional losses, you need to start the process of commercial water removal in your San Leandro retail store as soon as possible. At SERVPRO, we understand business operations, and we have served different commercial clients for many years. We know our way around retail stores and other business premises. Some benefits of working with us include:

  •     Round the clock availability.

How Do You Conduct the Water Removal Process?

Our technicians conduct an assessment to know which steps to take to remove the water and dry a property quickly. During the process, our technicians do the following:

  •     Look out for safety hazards like falling stock, uneven flooring, and ruined electrical wiring.
  •     Determine what caused the water loss and take steps to prevent further leaking. 
  •     Determine the most appropriate and effective strategy for cleaning up your property. 

After a water loss incident in a retail store, it is imperative to clean it up properly, so it does not turn into a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and other harmful microorganisms. Our SERVPRO team can extract the water efficiently using electric submersible pumps, which offer continuous and quiet operation. 

We can also inventory the salvageable items, equipment, and fixtures and move them to our facilities for proper drying and restoration. Our team can also get rid of debris and unsalvageable items, including furnishings and structural items.

We can then place structural drying equipment like air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers throughout your store to dry the affected areas thoroughly. Air movers expedite the drying of surfaces like flooring and enhance air circulation of the whole indoor space. Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals called desiccants, which absorb moisture from the air dehumidifiers process readily. 

When a water loss problem occurs in your retail store, you can trust SERVPRO of San Leandro to remove the water and dry the business premises. Contact us any time at (510) 352-2480.

Solving a Water Damage Problem in San Leandro

If you’ve got water damage in your home, one of the trickiest parts of solving the problem is finding a company that has the right equipment to do the job.

For those who have water damage in San Leandro, CA, SERVPRO has the specialized tools to handle any issues

To give you an idea of how the equipment is used in the problem-solving process, here’s a quick rundown on some of the equipment SERVPRO uses and the role it plays in the problem-solving process.

Dehumidification Equipment

SERVPRO uses industrial-grade dehumidifiers, and they play a vital role in preventing mold and bacteria. In addition to performing the functions of a normal dehumidifier, they help remove deeply-embedded moisture from all hard surfaces, including wooden flooring and wall frames. This can be critical in preventing the swelling and warping of floors, and these dehumidifiers can also remove water from basements, garages, crawlspaces, etc.

High-Speed Air Movers

One of the most important steps in solving a water damage problem is getting rid of as much water as possible in the first 24-48 hours, and specialized air movers play a vital role in doing this. They create airflow throughout every room where the problem exists, pushing a high-pressure stream of air across walls and floors, carpets, furniture and pads. They incorporate high-speed motors that are specifically designed to accelerate the evaporation of moisture throughout the house.

Moisture Monitors

These monitors measure the moisture level in both the home and the environment as a whole, and in specific materials such as flooring, drywall, etc. These monitors also help evaluate the specific moisture level of furniture, carpets, pads, etc., and they are pivotal in measuring the progress of the work. This helps SERVPRO professionals develop a quick understanding of the scope of the problem so they can outline the process for you.  

So if you’re looking for a company with the right equipment for the job, contact SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 to get fast, reliable service and solutions.
