Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Oakland, CA

Oakland is one of the largest cities in California, being home to more than 430,000 people. With such a rapidly growing population and a high volume of attractions, water disasters and other emergencies must get met with a prompt and knowledgeable response. Our experienced Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) are ready 24/7 to help begin mitigation efforts that can eliminate the most pressing concerns. 

Removing Surface Water Fast in Oakland Homes 

Multiple threats and concerns exist after water disasters occur, but few can be as devastating as pooling water along the flooring. Many of the chosen materials used in constructing your home floors are porous in nature, allowing water to penetrate after only brief exposure. Our professionals arrive with multiple leading tools and instruments to remove standing water before a substantial threat exists for the property. Depending on the severity, the choice in extractor changes. We use: 

· Submersible pumps

· Trash pumps

· High-pressure pumps

· Truck-mount extractors

· Weighted extractors

Thorough Drying Steps for Area Homes 

Drying is one of the elements of successful water restoration, meaning that much of our responding technicians' time and resources get placed in this effort. Thorough drying does not happen with singular pieces of equipment but rather a combination of available tools and instruments in our recovery inventory. Centrifugal and axial air movers combined with dehumidifiers can have the greatest impact on reducing moisture concerns.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
