Get Water Cleanup Services for Your Oakland Home After a Water Heater Leak
A leaking water heater can cause significant damage, especially if you didn’t detect the leak for several days. If the appliance is on an upper floor, the water could damage the walls and flooring as it flows downward. Fixing the leak and cleaning up the water is vital.
Assessing the affected areas for damage and performing the necessary repairs is also essential. Before you repair the damaged areas, you should hire professionals who can assist you to perform water cleanup in your Oakland home. You can contact the water damage remediation professionals at SERVPRO to assist you with the cleanup and drying process. We respond Faster to Any Size Disaster and have the training and equipment to handle your cleaning and restoration needs.
Our SERVPRO technicians can use tools like wet/dry vacuums to remove standing water from the affected areas. We check the floors and walls below the affected area and crawl spaces for standing water and extract it. We then assess the destruction and remove the materials, which cannot be restored like drywall, carpeting, carpet padding, and personal items.
When drying a structure, we create a drying goal, which is the condition we want to bring about in the affected areas. We consider how dry the area should be when we are done. This goal includes moisture content readings from dry, unaffected contents and structures, readings in percentage for wood materials and readings in points for non-wood materials. We use industrial grade dehumidifiers and air movers to dry out the area and materials that can be restored. To dry a structure, it is necessary to eliminate moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air to ensure that the area is thoroughly dry. Our SERVPRO technicians monitor the drying equipment to ensure fast drying time.
Most water damage also necessitates odor removal for wet materials have a distinct odor. Our technicians can deodorize the floors, walls, ceilings and other structures to eliminate odors. We can also restore the area to its original condition by refinishing hardwood flooring, laying new carpeting and hanging new drywall.
