How to Succeed With Water Removal in Oakland

Consumers wonder why fans and dehumidifiers need to run all of the time, especially after the surface water has been removed from their home in Oakland. Once the leak or broken pipe has been repaired, and all of the surface water vacuumed from floors and cavities, can’t everything be left to dry on its own?

SERVPRO has been providing water removal services in Oakland and surrounding areas for over fifteen years. Our professionally trained team has the experience and equipment to deal with all types of emergencies, both large and small. Many of our clients are unaware that moisture from water leaks and overflows can cause drywall and particle board structures to swell if not dried immediately. Also, mold colonies can become established in as little as 24 to 48 hours. We need to remove all of the moisture as quickly as possible. Turning off equipment risks further damage and mold growth.

At SERVPRO, we take the following steps to dry your home completely:

  • Remove excess water using pumps as needed
  • We use water extractors on floors and vacuums in small cavities
  • SERVPRO installs dehumidifiers and air movers to remove all moisture

The last step removes all remaining moisture until the humidity levels in your home have returned to normal.

Can the Equipment Be Turned off at Night to Save Money?

Many people want to turn off the equipment at night to save electrical charges. If the client is staying in the home while moisture is being removed, many would like to turn off the equipment to sleep at night. SERVPRO experts emphasize:

  • We use energy-efficient air movers and dehumidifiers
  • Avoiding the growth of mold is extremely important since mold can cause health effects.

Depending on the water damage location and insurance coverage, clients may want to consider moving out of their home for several days while we dry your home returning humidity levels to normal.
