Water Damage in Coolidge Bathroom So Bad It Needs Controlled Demo
SERVPRO Teams Handle Every Aspect of The Job After Water Damage Occurs In Your Coolidge Home
One of the worst forms of water damage to a house involves sewage. When this type of water loss event occurs, the ability to restore both contents and structure may have limits due to the contaminated nature of the water.
Water damage in a Coolidge bathroom caused by a blockage in a toilet that lead to a toilet overflow that affected most of the bathroom floor and the adjoining hallway. The category three blackwater quickly seeped under the tile floor and the bathroom cabinet.
Water Migration Location
SERVPRO technicians use their moisture detection equipment to determine areas where the water went. Particularly in the case of water containing sewage, it is vital to extract and clean all areas affected by this type of water loss for health reasons.
Safety During Water Extraction
It is standard for the technicians to wear personal protective gear, so they do not come into contact nor aspirate the water during mitigation. They also often treat the water with antimicrobial cleaners to lessen the contamination.
Few building materials have the potential for restorability after exposure to sewage-tainted water. SERVPRO technicians removed the tile flooring to open up the subfloor for drying. The toe kick under the bathroom cabinet and the baseboards all required removal for extraction and drying. Much of the sheetrock moisture and the techs measured several inches above the waterline and cut the damaged sheetrock away.
Drying and Deodorizing
When sewage is present in a home, it is unmistakable. Drying equipment to push moisture out of the subfloor and wall cavities is crucial as a part of the restoration process. Then a wipedown with potent antimicrobial and deodorizing cleaning agents helps kill any resident bacteria as well as eradicate odors. Air scrubbers assist in capturing airborne particulate that may contribute to odors in the loss area.
Rebuilding Services Too
Once the techs address the loss, SERVPRO can also offer homeowners reconstruction services with general contractor license #310261 to restore the home to its preloss condition. That way, the process can go straight from cleanup to rebuilding without delay.
