Why SERVPRO Uses Both Mitigation And Preventative Methods To Protect Against Water Damage In Oakland

Because water has the capability to create significant damage to residential properties, it becomes crucial that SERVPRO performs both mitigation and prevention steps. These actions protect our Oakland customers' homes from the harm that arises from damp conditions, including high humidity.

Restoring homes in Oakland so water damage no longer poses a threat is why SERVPRO depends on both mitigation and prevention. Without both, our customers' properties might experience related problems later. Damage that develops later can include some of the same kinds that occur without professional restoration. Stains on surfaces, including upper walls and ceilings, warping that ruins wood, drywall, and other materials, and odors can all happen from the presence of even small amounts of excess moisture.

During mitigation, we remove the water from your home's structure, furnishings, and the air. We check all of these aspects so we can verify that nothing in your home contain excess moisture. The methods we use to prevent problems can include the following:

    •    Priming walls and ceilings before we repaint them in the homeowner's choice of colors keeps stains from bleeding through areas where we successfully dried out previously saturated drywall,
    •    Applying special protective oils to the wooden trim, furniture, and other objects in your home minimize the changes that swelling and shrinking can create,
    •    Spraying elements like concrete and stone with highly effective sealants that reduce the amount of moisture that can enter microscopic pores to minimize the possibility of microbial growth, and
    •    Using foggers and other methods to control the sources of odors before they start bothering your family.

SERVPRO's technicians use standard protocols established by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to mitigate and restore floors, walls, and furnishings. Each of our employees fulfills at least one crucial role in restoring your property. Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) use specialized equipment and highly effective methods to mitigate damage to the interior of your home.

Our building services, under General Contractor License # 937457, play a substantial role in quickly restoring homes after disasters, including those involving water damage. The additional support of these experts reduces the amount of time your family faces the inconvenience that water damage can cause. Helping our customers reduce their expenses through the combination of our efforts is another way we serve our local communities.

Residents in Hayward, Alameda, and Danville can call SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 for professional assistance when water causes damage to your house. Prevention of such damage costs less, and the earlier we can start, the better the final outcome we can provide our customers.
