SERVPRO Techs are Trained and Certified to Deliver the Best Outcome After Water Damage in Oakland Properties

A property owner can merely do so much to guard against water damage in an Oakland property. Inevitably, a pipe burst, flash flood, or roof leak can happen and need prompt attention.

SERVPRO stands out among Oakland water restoration companies as their technicians have extensive training and can handle the repairs and rebuilding on the back end of the home cleanup job. 

Professional equipment makes a huge difference in the outcome after even a small water damage incident. The contrast between consumer-grade fans and the devices SERVPRO has access to has no comparison. The drying equipment the techs bring include:

  • Drying mats
  • Tubing for creating direct air delivery as needed
  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Industrial dehumidifiers

Another problem homeowners run into when attempting to do their own water cleanup is that they cannot tell for certain if there is water behind walls or under flooring. SERVPRO technicians have probes and infrared cameras that can pinpoint areas where moisture has collected so it can get extracted and dried. The pumps, both portable and truck-mounted, have enormous suction and can lift out even embedded water. That is why the techs spend extra time pulling the extraction wand several times over the same area to remove the maximum amount of moisture. This attention to detail during the cleanup can help lessen the drying time needed. 

The drying time estimations are something that SERVPRO technicians estimate from years of experience plus the input from various pieces of equipment that detail both interior and exterior humidity levels. 

SERVPRO of West Oakland at (510) 599-9300 remains the choice among professional water restoration companies in Oakland. Call anytime 24/7 for fast, efficient service from trained and certified technicians.
