Specialty Drying in Orinda home

This is a photo of what we call specialty drying in an Orinda, Ca home. The water supply line to the dishwasher broke and caused water damage to the hardwood floors which required special equipment called a desiccant dehumidifier tented to the floor using lay flat ducting connected to a plastic floor containment in order to completely dry the affected area. Soon this beautiful hardwood floor will look "Like it never even happened."

This water damage was the result of a roof leak in a Walnut Creek home. The dining room hardwood floors and plywood subfloors were affected. The homeowner gave us a call, we removed baseboards, the tile in front of the fireplace and the hardwood floor in the affected area. We then cleaned the area, set up our dehumidifiers and drying equipment for the next few days until the plywood was completely dry.

Hardwood Floor Rescue Mat

Hardwood Floor Rescue Mat

At SERVPRO of Walnut Creek/Clayton we try are absolute hardest to "restore" instead of "replace". When there is water damage to hardwood floors one method of drying we will use is our Rescue Mats.

The Rescue Mat System enables our technicians to dry hardwood floors fast. Utilizing the power of a high-pressure blower, the Rescue Mat vacuums water vapor right through the surface of the floor.

 

Visible Mold

Visible Mold

Not all mold is visible until you start searching.

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Here at SERVPRO of Walnut Creek/Clayton we use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.

Mold containment

Mold containment

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same.

We use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.

Electrical fires

Electrical fires

Most electrical fires are caused by faulty electrical outlets and old, outdated appliances. Other fires are started by faults in appliance cords, receptacles and switches. Never use an appliance with a worn or frayed cord which can send heat onto combustible surfaces like floors, curtains, and rugs that can start a fire.

Running cords under rugs is another cause of electrical fires. Removing the grounding plug from a cord so it can be used in a two-prong electrical outlet can also cause a fire. The reason appliances have the extra prong is so they can be only used in outlets that can handle the extra amount of electricity that these appliances draw.

Moisture Meter

Moisture Meter

This is a photo of one of our moisture meters. This is an essential instrument we use to detect moisture content in materials.

Moisture meters are used to measure the percentage of water in a given substance. This information can be used to determine if the material is ready for use, unexpectedly wet or dry, or otherwise in need of further inspection. Wood and paper products are very sensitive to their moisture content.

The reading on this meter of 99.9 is stating that this specific material is completely saturated.

Toilet overflow in Walnut Creek Church

Toilet overflow in Walnut Creek Church

Water intrusions invade floors, ceilings and walls to find the lowest point in your business structure. Water from an overflowing bathroom stall (which is what happened in this Walnut Creek Church) will search for pinhole crevices and cracks in your floors and walls looking for a way to travel down in the building. Surfaces such as wood, drywall, and carpet pull water away from plain sight and into interiors of the structure.

Water damage before and after

Water damage before and after

When your property has been water damaged, you don’t have the luxury of waiting around for a convenient time to start the cleanup. Secondary, damage from mold growth can present serious health risks associated with mold in the living environment.

Mold spores are everywhere, but they need moisture and a nutrient source to grow. And that is exactly what your wet carpet or drywall offers.

If you have water damage, call SERVPRO of Walnut Creek for an inspection today at (925)930-6690

Hoarding in San Leandro home

Hoarding in San Leandro home

We received a call from an insurance agent regarding fire damage in this San Leandro home. We had no idea what we were walking into. Not only was there fire and soot damage but also an extreme case of hoarding. The fire department required the house to be boarded up claiming it was dangerous and unlivable. By listening to the family's needs and concerns, we created a plan that everyone agreed upon, which involved cleaning, sorting and disposing of any unwanted items. Once that was completed we were, then, able to clean up the fire and soot damage.

Wall Cavity Drying

Wall Cavity Drying

This is a picture of our Inject Dry in an office building drying out the walls throughout the commercial area. The Inject dry Hardwood Floor Drying System is the latest and greatest hardwood dryer in the industry. It's used to dry high-risk areas of moisture under hardwood, marble, and tile that regular dehumidifiers just can't quite reach. By exchanging the air in a targeted area with negative pressure, the air movement becomes a vehicle for moisture. When caught in time, this can keep your expensive hardwood and engineered hardwood from warping.

Happy National Dog Day

Happy National Dog Day

Here is a couple photos of our SERVPRO of Walnut Creek/Clayton family pet pooches we want to recognize on this very special day! 

"My dog taught me everything I need to know. It's Okay sometimes to just eat and sleep. When you fall down get back up, shake it off, forget about it, and go on. Be very brave no matter your size. Make your own fun. Unleash your talents. Learn new tricks no matter your age. Make new friends. Sniff out opportunities. Chase after your dreams. When loved ones come home always run to greet them. At the end of the day it is best to snuggle no matter what has happened. Everyday is a brand new day just be happy."
