Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in West Oakland, CA

With so many living around the port in West Oakland, our professionals understand how heightened the losses and disasters' probabilities become. Water disasters are among the most common of these situations and can rapidly spread to the point of being out of control in area homes and commercial properties. With many warehouses along the coastline, content relocation and cleaning can prevent considerable losses in water emergencies.

Water Removal and Extraction Solutions in West Oakland 

Mitigation is one of the initial phases of restoration our professionals begin upon arrival to a damaged home. Removing any pooling water is critical to reducing the spread and severity of water disasters. With high porosity flooring materials, water can spread quickly to less accessible areas of the property, such as structural cavities and subflooring. For this reason, we utilize a combination of leading extraction and water removal equipment from our inventory, including: 

  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Weighted extractors
  • Wet vacuums 

Structural Drying and Moisture Removal 

When it comes to drying your home after a water disaster, there are also multiple strategies to complete this task. Drying is the foundational element of successful water restoration, which means it is an action that often requires the greatest combination of tools in our inventory. Depending on the severity and placement of water damage, we can utilize various air movers and dehumidifiers to manage the most significant moisture concerns.
