Have You Experienced Water Damage in Your San Leandro Home?

SERVPRO technicians are available 24/7 to restore your water damaged home.

Fast Water Removal Always Necessary in San Leandro 

Accidents and malfunctions in plumbing or appliances are the most common causes of water damage in San Leandro, which means a water crisis can strike inside your home at any time, without any connection to external forces such as severe weather or other natural or human-made disasters. Regardless of the source of the water damaging your home, our team of licensed and certified water mitigation technicians is ready to take action immediately. 

Water removal is the first task we undertake in your San Leandro home after a pipe breaks or the dishwasher overflows. Focusing on ridding the property of visible standing water is just part of the job. Our IICRC-trained employees also use sensitive moisture metering equipment and thermal scanners to detect hidden caches of water collected in cavities in the building structure. 

Once the extent and location of the extractable water are mapped out by SERVPRO, we use pumps and wanded water extractors to remove it. If water migrated into recesses, we use a range of strategies to release it for collection and disposal. Options include flood cuts that remove a portion of a wall near the floor or holds drilled above a baseboard or in joints in masonry. The goal is to gain access to the water for extraction and then permit adequate structural drying. 

The speed with which we respond is crucial to halt the progressive harm water does, especially to porous building materials such as drywall, flooring, and ceiling tiles, and to prevent secondary damage such as mold growth. Professional water removal crews from SERVPRO can begin pumping and extracting water immediately after an assessment by our crew lead. Our service vehicles contain the equipment needed for both water removal and drying, preventing any delays in getting the project underway. 

Water removal is not complete until moisture moves from saturated structural components and fixtures into airborne vapor we capture and discard. SERVPRO crews determine drying goals based on the moisture measurement made earlier. We set up a perimeter of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of wet materials.   

SERVPRO of San Leandro works on all phases of water removal and structural drying until moisture levels are normal within the affected areas of your home. Call us at (510) 352-2480 to set up an assessment. Our line answers 24/7 every day of the year.
