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

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

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

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to 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.
