Flood Removal Oakland – Act Quickly to Reduce Long Term Damage

Flooding of your home is always stressful. Homeowners are worried about how to recover from so much damage. Especially if many personal items are damaged and covered in mud and contaminated material. Quick action can reduce the overall damage and ensure the recovery of many of these personal items.

SERVPRO has a great deal of experience dealing with flood removal in Oakland. We understand how important it is to be on-site assessing the situation as quickly as possible. We also know that by deploying our flood removal teams, we can save many the client's possessions.

Safety Comes First

Before anyone enters the area, ensure that there are no electrical hazards. Avoid areas that could be slippery. Falls can be quite severe if you are not careful. Wet items can be more than twice as heavy. Be careful to avoid strains and torn muscles if you are trying to move wet furniture on your own.

SERVPRO can assess the situation for you before you enter the flooded area. We complete this step before our people enter the area. We remove any flood debris from the area and sort personal items for recovery and restoral. Many homeowners assist in these situations to help identify those items that are precious to the client and high priority for cleaning and repair.

Staging and Removal

Once we remove personal items to a staging area, these items can be prioritized for cleaning, restoral, and drying. The staging area may be located in another location in the home that is dry and unaffected or to a remote location at a SERVPRO facility.

Depending on the extent of the flood damage, SERVPRO can recommend the steps needed to restore your home. These steps may include removal of flooring materials, baseboards, and drywall before drying and dehumidification. Once this stage is complete restoration can begin.

We are licensed (General Contractor License #: 937457) to provide restoration services for full structural damage repair and rebuild.
