SERVPRO Techs Bring Professional Equipment for Complete Water Restoration Services

Alum Rock homes with water damage after heavy storms need immediate attention. A leaking roof or water coming in around a door or window can do significant damage in a short period.

SERVPRO technicians routinely handle flood damage cleanup in Alum Rock houses. This service normally consists of several layers, including:

  • Water extraction and drying
  • Cleaning and sanitizing
  • Repairs to the home

Floodwater Extraction and Drying

More often than not, floodwater appears to recede almost as fast as it enters a property. It soaks into porous objects and wicks into sheetrock, so often, there is little standing water when the technicians arrive on-site for the job. The tools used frequently for water removal include portable pumps and submersible units.

When water wicks into walls or ceilings, the drywall deteriorates rapidly and requires removal along with the wet insulation.  The opened wall cavity allows for air circulation during drying, and the discarding of saturated building materials helps bring down the interior air moisture levels at a more rapid rate.

Surface Cleaning, Mold Treatment, and Sanitizing

Any area of the home that the floodwater touches needs to get cleaned. SERVPRO techs have a large selection of cleaning agents that include EPA-registered solutions. The techs can identify early warning signs of mold growth and use their professional antimicrobial products to inhibit the growth and create an uninhabitable environment.


SERVPRO techs can handle a full range of repairs that are often needed post-water damage. Including big repairs such as drywall or carpet insulation and small details such as painting walls or installing trim.
