Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Where is Rain to go?

10/3/2018 (Permalink)

This isn't Venice, Italy! When the Bay overflows, water floods the area.

Our SERVPRO Certified Technicians Act Quickly to Prevent Secondary Damages

When the San Francisco Bay's level rises, it can cause substantial problems for the residents of San Leandro. Flooding does not need to come from rainfall with nowhere to go but sideways – and the salty water from the Bay holds its own type of special hazards for homeowners. 

Residents who find themselves facing flood damage from overflows from the Bay often have to deal with the silt and sand when flooding abates, plus the multitude of microorganisms and the smell they create. While sea spray can give hair and clothing a fresh scent, it fails at this when a home is involved. Photos found on the internet can show you how badly flooding impacts homes and other buildings, but it is impossible to fully portray the indescribable odors left behind. 

Always ready for flooding and other disaster types, SERVPRO professionals can provide the complete restoration services needed to start the cleanup procedures and prepare your home for the return of your family. Flooding increases the risk of not only  water damagebut also the chance that a fire starts. Electrical circuits, wiring, fuse boxes, and all other components submerged during a flood must have an inspection by a licensed electrician to prevent fires from starting. 

After removing debris and standing water, we then begin drying out the home. As we work, we take care to discuss any modifications to walls and cabinets that often increase our machines' efficiency. Because flooding often renders a home's electrical framework unusable, we bring our own with us. Preparing the areas the electrician must access in advance can save time later, so we keep this in mind as we work in your home. After the electrical work is again functioning safely and correctly, we can continue restoring your home. 

Re-establishing the indoor environment helps protect your home from future damage, some of which can take months or longer to surface and become evident. Making your home beautiful while we protect it is one of our main goals at SERVPRO. When you, the homeowner, are satisfied with our work, then we know our job is complete.

SERVPRO of San Leandro understands the role your home plays for you and your family, and we want to help you in the task of ensuring its integrity. Contact us at (510) 352-2480 to speak with our technicians about how we can help.
