Is the Average Homeowner Equipped to Handle Water Damage?

A couple in a kitchen with rain falling down on them. SERVPRO of West Oakland is prepared to help Oakland homeowners take on water damage.

Most Homeowners are Not Prepared for Water Damage, However SERVPRO is Equipped to Help Oakland Homeowners. 

Many of us hesitate to purchase a home for different reasons.  Although financial reasons weigh heavily, homeowners also need to consider the commitment to the upkeep of the home once it becomes yours.  As a renter, the landlord or property manager typically takes care of repairs leaving the tenant generally free and unencumbered by mishaps typical to owning a home.  For example, when a carpet or floor is soaking wet because of a broken pipe, a tenant can reach out to the landlord, whereas a homeowner needs to research a reputable company to help restore the home.

In Oakland, SERVPRO is an expert in water cleanup services, which makes us a crucial resource once you cross the threshold into homeownership. Because we realize that emergencies happen around the clock, we make our crew available 24/7.  Whenever you find water damage to your property, we can help mitigate your losses by reducing the time lapse between the incident and the extraction of water.  All you need to do is call us and invite our Green Fleet into your home.

First-time homeowners tend to make the mistake of attempting the restoration process on their own. The difference between renting equipment from a home improvement store and allowing us to use our industry-specific tools can represent the difference between the proliferation of bacteria and a safe environment for you and your family.  Our SERVPRO technicians train specifically to understand the chemical composition of available cleaning agents, and we know how to use them to prevent further complications while protecting your furniture and personal belongings.  A poor restoration job can both set you up for issues like mold while damaging your furniture with abrasive solutions.  When you let us lead the way, you do not have to worry about microbial growth or the proper application of cleaning agents.  Our crew knows how to work with EPA-approved products and wearing personal protective equipment to shield our staff and your home from harm.

SERVPRO of West Oakland is here to help you keep your home safe.  Just call our professional team at (510) 599-9300 when you run into trouble and let our team apply its expertise to your benefit.  Like you, we want to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”
