Cleaning Up Water Damage

Time is of the essence with any water leak, including a leaking dishwasher. The faster you respond to take action to stop water from spilling onto your kitchen floor in San Leandro, the less damage that is done and this also means less costly repairs. Your dishwasher can fail for several reasons including it being installed unevenly, using the wrong dishwashing soap, a broken door, loose connections, and a worn gasket.

Whatever the reason your dishwasher has begun leaking water all over your kitchen floor, the issue needs to be handled fast. Water damage can quickly escalate in your San Leandro home, and professional help to clean it up is best. SERVPRO has the staff and tools to expertly clean up the mess and restore your home back to normal.

During the restoration of your home, we need to create a drying goal. We monitor the drying process daily to see whether this goal is being accomplished. A drying goal is a condition we want to bring to the affected area of your structure and how dry we want the environment to be when we are finished.

SERVPRO technicians use drier air to increase the rate of evaporation. We use specific humidity readings to ensure the humidity in the affected area is lowering. When dry, the specific humidity in this area should be the same or lower than the specific humidity of areas which were not affected.

We also need to establish a dry standard for the contents of your home. We do so by taking moisture content readings from materials that are dry in unaffected areas. These readings are part of our drying goal for the wet areas. A moisture meter is used to see if we are reaching our drying goals and to document how much moisture is in the material every time we monitor. We compare the readings to see if the item is drying, and once we reach the drying goal, the process is complete.

SERVPRO of San Leandro understands that once standing water is out of your home in San Leandro, Mulford Gardens, and the surrounding areas, it does not mean your home is thoroughly dry yet. We take steps to ensure your home is dried back to normal levels when you call us for help at (510) 352-2480.
