Water Damage Can Severely Affect Your Oakland School

Education is something that Oakland residents take seriously, and that is why when a disaster threatens one of the local schools, it is critical to get this situation resolved immediately. The less time that incidents take to get restored and cleaned up, the less time that students have to spend without a place to go and learn.

Water damage in your Oakland school is often among the situations that get overlooked by overseers as minuscule or non-threatening. Unfortunately, this is not the case. An inadequately or improperly cleaned and restored water damage incident can lead to many severe effects for the building and also those that use it.

Our SERVPRO professionals are available 24/7 to help you through any emergency that one of the schools in the area districts faces. This commitment ensures that your institution is getting highly trained restoration specialists with industry-leading equipment to overcome any level of water damage incident that you face. However, how can water damage cause significant problems for the building?

One of the first concerns is the penetration into flooring and wall materials like drywall, wood, and linoleum. In just a brief period these materials can become oversaturated and deform, break loose and fail. This hazard can affect both faculty and students and persist gradually after the water had presumably gotten cleaned up with conventional approaches.

Another pressing concern for school officials should be persistent dampness and moisture. These conditions could lead to hazardous secondary effects like mold growth which could affect those occupying the building. Our SERVPRO team has moisture detection equipment we utilize to ensure that our efforts have successfully removed all of the water from the affected areas, not just the areas that can be readily seen.

When you are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of an entire school, there are often hundreds or even thousands of people to consider with every decision. Trust in the experience and rapid response of our SERVPRO of San Leandro water restoration team to help you through every step of restoring the building. Give us a call today at (510) 352-2480.
