Water Removal Services for Your Atlanta Home After a Toilet Overflow
Team SERVPRO Arrives on the Scene With Equipment to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Home
An overflowing toilet is one of the leading causes of water damage in homes in Atlanta. The damage can be immense, whether the tank malfunctioned or there is a clog in the bowl. The damage can be even worse when the bathroom is on an upper floor of your home and water flows down to lower levels of your home. You could be looking at damaged insulation, ceilings, flooring systems, and water inside wall cavities as well.
A water damage emergency in Atlanta such as this requires immediate attention. Not only do you need water removal services to get rid of the water, but you need help restoring your damaged home as well. Our SERVPRO staff has all the needed training, experience, and professional tools to do the restoration work for you in a timely fashion.
We identify the scope of the damage after arriving at your home, both seen and unseen, by using hygrometers and moisture detectors. We also help you as the homeowner overcome your feelings of helplessness by explaining the whole remediation process to you before we begin and as we go along.
SERVPRO staff then extracts all the excess water with heavy-duty, truck-mounted pumps. We remove as much of the water as possible so that the drying process is easier. Once this is done, professional strength dehumidifiers and air-movers are used to finish the drying process. Depending on how much damage the water has created, some materials like subfloors, flooring, drywall, and ceiling materials might need demolishing and removing so that we can salvage the substructure and framing. Doing this also helps prevent mildew and mold from growing, and we can dry the structure out more thoroughly as well. We also separate and store your personal property and salvage what is possible.
Once everything is dry, we also clean and sanitize the affected areas to keep bacteria and mold from growing. We can then do any rebuilding that is necessary. We work alongside professional contractors when this step requires a good amount of construction. When this is complete, we can then put all your personal belongings back in place.
SERVPRO of West Atlanta/Downtown wants to ensure that your home in Mechanicsville, Downtown Atlanta or Reynoldstown is thoroughly dry again after a water disaster. Give us a call at (404) 835-0200 as soon as you experience any water damage emergency so we can get your home back in order.
