Our Qualified Technicians Are Ready To Restore Your Oakland Home After A Flood
Emergency Assistance Removing Black Water after Flood Damage in Oakland
A flood is an unfortunate event that can cause property damages and the necessity to call in emergency services. Often these events are the result of heavy rainfall causing road overflow which can migrate into your property. You need a rapid response unit to help assess the potential harm large quantities of water can do to both your property and your possessions. We operate an emergency line 24 hours a day and use local technicians to reduce call-out times.
The scope and breadth of flood damage in Oakland properties depend primarily on the type of water that enters the home. Flash flooding can happen in an instant, and the water which enters your property has traveled a long distance. During this journey, that water can pick up raw sewage, animal carcasses, herbicides, pesticides, and other potentially harmful pathogens. We call water like this Black Water and, if you suspect this type of flooding, you should avoid all contact with it until a professional arrives.
SERVPRO has qualified technicians who can deal with potential BioHazard substances and dispose of them properly according to guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency. By using a local service like ours, you can rely on technicians who are well-versed in local laws as well.
Our priority on arrival is to remove any furnishings or possessions that are in the affected flood damage area. We can do this either by moving them to a designated clean zone on-site or performing a pack out service. Pack-out services involve creating an inventory of all your possessions and sending them to an external facility where they can be cleaned using ultrasonic or mechanical cleaning methods.
SERVPRO work to a restore over replace mentality. For your possessions, we can use advanced equipment to restore them to their preloss condition. In the case of Black Water damage, we must demolish affected areas of drywall, remove and dispose of carpets and subfloor mats as well as assess damages behind wall cavities. The harmful pathogens present mean failure to do so could pose a real risk to your safety.
Getting your home back to preloss conditions is our forte, contact SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480.
