San Leandro Fire Loss and Smiles

When our smiling crew went to the San Leandro property, they found a minor fire that was extinguished but left behind a slightly charred and sooty residue. Since it was wood that could be restored our SERVPRO team members happily attacked the task at hand. Decked out in their Tyvek suits and gloves they used "soda blasting" to remove the slightly embedded carbonized debris within the wood. The semi-abrasive pressurized discharge leaves the surface clean, smooth, and no wetness from water. Sodium bicarbonate (large particle baking soda) shatters on impact and thus removes the film or grime without damaging the surface. It this case, it also acts as a deodorizer. Do you have a box of baking soda in your fridge? SERVPRO has the talented employees and cutting-edge equipment to provide cost-effective and successful treatment. Just call us to make you feel "Like it never even happened."

Storm Damage – San Leandro

Technical College Water Cleanup

SERVPRO of San Leandro responded to a weekend call from the Maintenance Director of a local college. A drinking water supply line in a cafeteria broke and flooded the bookstore, hallways and several large classrooms. All the rooms were ready for class on Monday morning. (A portion of the bookstore remained closed off until Tuesday morning.) We understand the need to get a building back into use as soon as possible.

Mold Damage – San Leandro Home

Mold damage on the ceiling of this San Leandro home was due to the water heater in the attic which leaked and overflowed its containment tray. The moisture and darkness together in the attic led to mold growth on the ceiling and the insulation.

School Flooded by Rain Storms

In the San Francisco Bay Area many schools, especially ones built after 1950 are located in our "flat-lands" at the base of our Bay Area hills. These schools are usually one story on grade slab construction. Just a few inches of runoff rainwater can enter these buildings... SERVPRO to the rescue.

Biohazard in Attic

Raccoons can make a big mess when they make their way into an attic. One thing that we have learned about raccoons, they set up a designated toilet area. If you need help with attic cleanup we are ready to help SERVPRO of San Leandro 510-352-2480.

Spider Web or Soot Tag?

When a fire burns inside a structure, the soot that is produced will contain chemicals and tiny particles  of structural material that were not completely consumed by the fire. When plastic material burn there can be tiny static charged particles that form "soot chains" or "soot webs" that look like spider webs.

Equipped to be of Service...

Visit our shop and you will see shelves of green drying equipment. We must own and maintain an inventory of restorative drying equipment to successfully service our clients property damage emergencies.

Any job, from small to gigantic. We are SERVPRO of San Leandro 510-352-2480.

Cleaning with sound waves.

Ultrasonic cleaning (featuring sound waves) has been used to clean electronics parts and fine jewelry for many years. It is also used on a larger scale to clean household contents that been soiled by soot and grease.   The restoration ultrasonic machine is 30 feet long and features a pre-soak chamber, ultra sonic chamber, rinse sink and drying booth

Uniformed Employees

When you hire a professional service provider you want the technicians not only know what they are doing, you want them to look professional. Image is important and especially for any company that is delivering cleaning services. It gives the client an added measure of confidence. That's why we "brand" our vehicles, equipment and crew members

Commercial Desiccant

Some jobs are large and complex... the kind of structural material that needs to be dried impacts the complexity of drying. Hardwood and masonry construction often requires specialized drying techniques and equipment. This is an example of desiccant drying at work. 

Document Recovery

Fire and then the water used to extinguish the flames damaged the contents of these file cabinets.

SERVPRO of San Leandro provides a service to dry and "save" documents. It is not always possible to restore the document to a before it happened appearance, but usually the content and signatures can be recovered.  

Flooded Office

Failing water delivery pipes, toilet overflows and fire sprinklers going off are a few of the most common ways that water can damage an office. Rainwater and ground flooding may also cause water damages. Once we responded to an aquarium toppling over during an earthquake. However a water damage happens we can clean and dry it up. 

Mold Spread by Dirty HVAC System

A video camera was sent into this ductwork to examine the soil condition. Lots of dust. Lots of mold spores too. That explains why mold was growing on the walls of the home near the registers. 

Board Up Services

24/7 emergency window and door board-up services for both commercial and residential locations.

SERVPRO of San Leandro has been providing these services for water and fire damaged structures as well as for fallen trees and when vehicles crash into structures.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imagery was created by the military to detect "warm bodies" in the dark. Like so much military technology there are many peace time uses for thermal imagery.

At SERVPRO, we use it to detect temperature changes within the walls and ceilings of a structure. If a portion of structural materials is damp it will present a different color signature and a temperature readout on the camera's screen. The benefit of using the thermal camera is the time it saves over having to use a hand held meter to press against various surfaces, and being able to aim it at ceiling and upper wall sections that would otherwise require someone to climb onto a ladder to make a reading with a hand held moisture meter device.

Ground Water Extraction

Rain water caused ground water flooding of a cafeteria tile floor. The picture shows the excess water is being extracted before EPA approved disinfectants are applied to the hard surface floor.

Classroom Mold Remediation

A mold infested beam on a classroom ceiling was cleaned, sanded and stained to be as good or better than when it was first installed. All work was performed on a weekend to avoid closing the classroom.

Soot Removal from Kitchen Fire

Smoke and soot from kitchen fires can contain grease and may be very hard to clean. This kitchen ceiling was darkened by burning wood and not grease. Never the less it is not easy to remove this much soot. Our technician is doing a great job.

Cleanup for Automobiles

Our skilled technicians provide services all around Northern California at car dealerships and service centers to perform cleanup services for a major automobile brand. These services include: drying, deodorizing and even mold removal. 

Sheetrock (drywall board) Removal.

Most water that flows through a structure damages the gypsum board and it must be removed. Our technicians do their best to remove the wall board by doing straight / precision cuts. This makes it easier to perform the sheetrock replacement.

Mold might look pretty...

When you see closeup photos of mold it is an interesting and complex structure, even pretty. However, some molds can put out toxic spores and gases that can cause health threats to some people. At SERVPRO we know how to remove mold from your indoor environment.

Containment Barrier

Erecting a plastic barrier to isolate a damp/wet room from a non-effected space will speed up drying. We have learned that it also keeps persons away from the work location, and that's great for safety.

This glossy floor represents  the final cleanup of a dining room that experienced a nasty sewage spill. After the cleaning and sanitation was completed, the floor was waxed and polished. It's better than before.

Making the "USS Hornet" Ship-Shape

SERVPRO of San Leandro performed volunteer cleaning services to help restore and maintain the USS Hornet Museum, a World War II aircraft carrier docked in Alameda at the former “Naval Station, Alameda.” The Owners, Partner Roy Drake pictured, worked together with their managers and technicians to provide power washing of the hangar-bay deck to prepare it for a fresh protective coating. The hangar-deck contains displays that describe the story of this great ship; it’s service during the Second World War and in Viet Nam. The USS Hornet serviced NASA as the primary retrieval vessel used to pick up the Moon landing Astronauts when they returned to Earth by “splashing down” in the Pacific.

Additional work performed aboard the USS Hornet included dusting many of the interior rooms and facilities and operational equipment that are on display.
