SERVPRO logo Our technicians are prepared with the training and state of the art equipment your property needs after a water incident.

With Historic Structures and Areas of Cultural Significance, Water Damage Can be Devastating to the Region. 

San Leandro can experience a broad spectrum of weather events and potential emergencies leading to water damages. As a trusted restoration team for Alameda County and the Bay Area, thousands depend on the fast and reliable response of our SERVPRO team. Protecting the city's cultural diversity and heritage as it continues to grow is a strong focus in the work that we do and the pace of our restoration practices. We have professionals available 24/7 to respond to developing water disasters. 

The Spanish Era

Much of the Portuguese American population at this time began in the 1800s when Spanish soldiers first settled the area, and a labor force was shipped in from Hawaii to meet work demands. By the early 1900s, this Portuguese presence would be a two-thirds majority. The earliest settlements still exist in part to this day, with some structures preserved from both the Rancho San Leandro and Rancho San Antonio, owned by founder José Joaquín Estudillo and his family.  

The American Growth in San Leandro

Through major national and global conflicts, the scope of San Leandro would change. Much like everywhere else in the country, through situations like the Civil War and World War II, San Leandro residents would rise to the occasion and get involved. Shelley v. Kraemer would be instrumental in diversifying San Leandro's population again after the 1940s when covenants preventing racial diversity in the neighborhoods were deemed unconstitutional. 

Current Cultural Climate for the City 

Today, much like the rest of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Alameda County, San Leandro is a versatile landscape of cultures, art, and heritage. From retail experiences like the Marina Square Mall or the Bayfair Center to historic properties like Casa Peralta and the Daniel Best House, the city is growing without losing its cultural roots. 

Protecting Area Homes from Water Damages 

Water damages remain the most common emergency that our professionals get tasked with restoring, making it a situation we must be prepared to face at all times. The majority of our roster has accreditations with Water Restoration (WRT) through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), ensuring that no customer waits for the response their home needs after a disaster. 

From the structures of the San Leandro Marina and famous properties like Casa de Estudillo or Casa Peralta, we put the same care into treasured buildings of the Bay Area as well as the thousands of homes that depend on us. We arrive with premier equipment and products designed to overcome water disaster effects promptly, including: 

  • Air movers
  • Extractors
  • Vacuums
  • Heaters
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Cleaning agents 

No matter when water damages occur in your home or business, our SERVPRO of San Leandro team can be there quickly to help. Call us 24/7 at (510) 352-2480.
