Water Stains Indicate Large Problems for Property Owners in Oakland, Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration

Large Volumes of Water Can Cause Significant Damage--Call SERVPRO Fast

Pipes inside your home can break at any time, day or night, and on average a ¾-inch pipe spews out about 1350 gallons per hour. While not much bigger, if your Oakland home has 1-inch pipes, the amount surges to almost double that amount and releases 2100 gallons per hour.

In Oakland, SERVPRO is always ready to perform water removal and extraction services to get your home dry again. We use submersible pumps that remove the water almost as quickly and prepare the area for our team to use smaller units. Responding Faster to Any Size Disaster, we know that every minute counts. Damaging effects of water begin almost immediately.
The longer the water remains, the worse and more extensive damage becomes, reaching into other areas of your home as water, moisture, and water vapor spread. Even the air can become saturated until we restore your home's interior back to its normal dry condition. Dehumidification is hugely crucial to ridding the interior of a home from excess moisture. Less water vapor means more rapid removal of the unwanted water.
SERVPRO technicians hold certifications from the IICRC and know how to use various techniques and methods to dry the different materials inside your home. We take readings of your walls, floors, and the air, as well, and then compare these readings to established moisture-content listings. Until the materials inside your home reach these same levels, we continue drying things out.
For problematic areas that retain water more strongly, we build simple drying chambers that allow us to concentrate efforts in specific areas while other areas in your residence continue drying at a different rate. Similar to this, we use heated floor mats that extract the moisture that evaporates out from under floorboards. Also, using flexible tubing permits us to air out the cavities and dead spaces in your house's architecture. We force warm, dry air into these spaces to reduce the wetness.
When you find your home flooded with water from a broken water line, call us, SERVPRO of San Leandro, at (510) 352-2480. We can try to make everything “Like it never even happened.” with fast and efficient water removal services.
