Flood damage is nothing to play with especially in your Oakland home.

High tide flooding poses a big problem for coastal cities. Some issues include beach erosion, closed roadways, and overwhelmed drinking water and sewer systems. The problem that many people worry about most is flood damage to their homes.

If your Oakland home has flood damage, it is vital to begin the cleanup and repair process as soon as possible to prevent additional destruction. Remember that the damage may be more severe than it appears. SERVPRO franchise professionals can work fast to restore your property to the condition it was in before the flooding incident.

We know that the first 24 hours after a flooding incident are vital in shaping how a home recovers. Our crew can guide you throughout the restoration process. Our training allows us to deliver the highest possible standards in each job consistently.

Floodwater usually has microorganisms, dirt, and debris. We have appropriate water extraction tools such as self-priming trash pumps, which are suitable for removing water that contains solids from a home. Our crew also sets up industrial air movers and dehumidifiers in a home to dry it thoroughly. We monitor the drying process carefully using moisture detection tools like moisture sensors and moisture meters to determine if affected materials are making progress towards the predetermined drying goals.

In many cases, it is possible to save some items with the right restoration approach and quick action. For instance, we clean and sanitize hard, non-porous surfaces. Generally, it is not possible to clean affected porous materials. Our team can remove porous materials like ceiling tiles, drywall, particleboard, insulation, and paneling, among others, during the flood remediation process and dispose of them properly.

We provide a complete end to end service. This means that we can assist you in mitigating the flood damage, restoring your contents, and reinstating your home entirely. Our SERVPRO team can rebuild the affected areas. We can also support you throughout the reconstruction project, including help you make the right decisions when it comes to replacing ruined finishes and fittings.

Our technicians also know what insurance firms need to determine damage value and coverage after a customer files a claim. We can document the damage, offer detailed repair estimates, and work with your insurance company and adjuster to speed up the claims process. We can keep you and your insurance company fully updated on the progress of the job.
