SERVPRO Can Provide a Team to Help Stop or Reverse Some Effects of Water Damage Saving Your Business

Although water spills may not damage the cars, which are the main assets supporting your car rental businesses, other damages can occur, affecting your business negatively. SERVPRO responds promptly when called to help Oakland businesses hit by water spills.

What problems can impede business after water damage at my Oakland car rental service?

  • Malfunctioning electronics
  • Ruined documents 
  • Damaged façade 

After water spills and pools around the property, evaporation follows, increasing the humidity levels in the air. Such humid air spreads all over the property, finding a way inside many electronics, including computers and printers, although you might not notice. Later, problems arise when temperature changes lead to condensation causing water damage to the interior components of the electronics. Our SERVPRO technicians can help by dehumidifying the property to keep moisture levels in the air constant or regulating heating to prevent temperatures from reaching the dew point.

Can we salvage wet papers?

Water damage to papers is usually irreversible since it causes smudging of ink or matting. Such damage affecting contract documents or other records can be challenging to reconcile. The use of specialized techniques and quick action can help stop further deterioration. Our SERVPRO technicians take a couple of steps to help salvage your documents.

  • Freezing wet documents
  • Separating wet paper materials from dry ones
  • Drying items with specialized techniques

Freezing stops the mechanical disintegration of papers and dissolution of ink, ensuring that what was written on the paper remains legible. Applying sophisticated drying procedures such as sublimation, whereby the solid ice changes directly to vapor, eliminates chances of further damage to the documents.  

Apart from using sophisticated approaches to save your documents, our technicians also rely on simple solutions such as separating wet materials from dry ones to prevent the transfer of wetness.

A simple water spill can lead to complicated problems. Call SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 to manage any loss situation, "Like it never even happened."
