Water Removal From a Bathroom in Your Eagle Lake Home

2/4/2018 (Permalink)

Water damage in your bathroom has many potential sources. Don't despair if your bathroom suffered water damage, contact SERVPRO.

Certified Technicians Categorize the Water Damage in Your Home and Remediate Accordingly

It is possible for water to leak from anywhere that it runs inside the home. Your Eagle Lake bathroom is susceptible to water escaping from the pipes because there is usually water running to the sink, shower or bath, and toilet. Since most bathrooms have three separate sources of water running into them, they are at high risk of a pipe breaking.

If a pressurized water pipe gets damaged, then an excessive amount of water can pour into the bathroom. When a sizable amount of water ends up on your bathroom floor, having a company that specializes in water removal in Eagle Lake, such as SERVPRO, assist you is a wise idea. Since most bathrooms are relatively small, much water can accumulate inside the room in a small amount of time.

Once water starts flooding your bathroom, it can seep into some places inside the room. Water starts filling the floor; then it spreads into areas that cannot be seen such as underneath the bathtub. It is also possible that water seeps into and underneath the vanity possibly ruining it. Water can also saturate flooring and begin causing damage to the floorboards.

Bathrooms are a common place for water damage not just due to their three freshwater sources, but the three water drains can cause problems too. If water comes from a fresh source, then it is considered a category one water damage. However, if water comes from the bath, shower, toilet or sinks drain, it is "grey water" or a category two water damage. If there is a sewage backup, there is a good chance that it is "black water."

The techniques a company like SERVPRO uses to mitigate the water damage problem vary depending on the type of water present. Our IICRC certified technicians have the experience and equipment to test the water contamination level. After the water type is determined, the proper mitigation method begins.

If you are dealing with fresh or "white" or "grey" water, repairing the damage with extraction and drying is possible. If the water is "black" water, demolition and deodorization occur.

SERVPRO of Bartow / Lakeland Highlands understands the best industry water removal techniques for your bathroom. If you ever have a water-related problem in your bathroom call us immediately at (863) 510-5962 for 24/7 assistance.
