Professional Water Cleanup In Your Oakland Kitchen

Life happens. While waiting on a washing machine repair, you can pull out your old electric washer and spinner from your college days and use that for small laundry loads in the meantime. However, after you hook it up to your kitchen faucet and start filling it up, it can be easy to forget about it while playing with your kids or taking the dogs out. When you come back inside to find your kitchen counters, cabinets, and ceramic tile floor covered in water, it can be overwhelming to consider the amount of water cleanup that has to take place to prevent mold from increasing.

When you need professional water cleanup in your Oakland home, the certified technicians at SERVPRO are Faster to Any Size Disaster, with access to industrial-grade equipment and extensive disaster mitigation training, so you can rest assured that our professionals have the tools and knowledge to restore your kitchen.

After your call, our team of SERVPRO professionals can get right to work extracting any remaining loose water, if any, with tools like wet/dry vacs and evaluating moisture of surfaces in your kitchen. Ceramic tile is semi-porous but highly resilient when it comes to water, so during drying, you can count on your tile being intact without moisture affecting the subflooring.

When drying surfaces, two pieces of industrial-grade equipment are used: air movers and dehumidifiers. When positioning air movers for cabinet doors and other vertical surfaces, they can generally be positioned at 45-degree angles every 10 to 16 linear feet to address moisture. If no water has penetrated the subflooring, air movers can be placed across the floor for dehumidifiers to absorb. During drying, our team continually monitors moisture levels with a variety of devices to ensure that humidity reaches safe levels. After drying, we can clean surfaces with an EPA-registered antimicrobial solution as an extra buffer to mold and bacteria growth.

SERVPRO of San Leandro stands ready to mitigate any disaster that may come your way. If you need our services when disaster strikes in your home, give us a call today at (510) 352-2480.
