Be Prepared for Storm Induced Flooding in San Leandro--Call SERVPRO for Water Removal

Storm Damage to San Leandro Properties Can Often Present Hazardous Conditions

Floods cause major damage throughout your home, making it necessary to secure professional help to recover. Entering your home after a flood can be emotional, it is best for you to leave your family safe and secure in temporary housing while letting trained personnel evaluate your situation.

When you experience flood damage in your San Leandro area home, the first thing you should do is get your family to safety. After that, contact your insurance agent and any family members to let them know you are okay. Once secure, communicate with the professionals necessary to get you the help you need.

It is important to understand that your home can contain contaminated mud and debris. By contacting a company like SERVPRO, you get the help you need to remove this debris, while also cleaning and disinfecting various surfaces found in your home. You must secure any furniture, and other household items before recovery can begin.

SERVPRO technicians make quick work of removing saturated, unrestorable materials from your home. All wallboard, plaster, or paneling up to 2-feet above any flood level requires removal before an efficient drying procedure begins. The structural materials, exposed wiring, and plumbing require special handling. Saturated insulation needs replacing, along with carpeting and pads in most situations.

SERVPRO technicians understand how to avoid hazards that often accompany floods, turning off electrical systems, checking appliances and your HVAC system as a part of our initial inspection. Vinyl and tile flooring may require removal to allow proper drying of the subfloor while wood floors can dry gradually over time.

There may be roof damage from defective flashing, clogged downspouts or eaves, cracks, and deterioration caused by missing shingles. A full inspection reveals problems like this and provides you with the recommendations required to save your home. We can help you avoid future damage by installing additional draining, backflow valves, or sump pumps.  

Contact SERVPRO of San Leandro for access to IICRC certified technicians 24-7. Leave your troubles to us, remain safe, and sound. (510) 352-2480
