Water Removal After a Toilet Overflow in Your Phoenix Home
Many Factors Lead to Water Problems in Homes
When a toilet in your Phoenix home overflows, the damage can be immense, whether the tank malfunctioned or there was a clog in the bowl. It is even troublesome when the bathroom is located on an upper floor of your house since the water can seep down to the lower levels. Water can affect flooring systems, ceilings, wall cavities, and possible insulation in a case like this.

You must act fast in a water emergency to prevent further damage, and we understand that. We are always standing by to help you with the knowledge and the tools that are needed.
Restoring your home to pre-damage conditions involves the removal of water, decontamination, and drying. When it comes to water extraction, we use vacuums and pumps to get rid of all the standing water. We start this step as soon as possible to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold and degradation of building materials and furnishings.
Drying and dehumidification can begin next. This step is essential to get rid of any remaining moisture. It can take several days to complete, and we monitor our equipment daily to ensure an optimal drying time. Thermal sensors and moisture sensors and infrared cameras can help detect hidden pockets of moisture.
Any personal belongings that were affected have to be cleaned and sanitized to stop any bacterial and mold growth. Antimicrobial treatments are given to draperies, carpeting, and clothing.
Restoration is a significant step in the process. It may involve replacing materials such as insulation and drywall that got wet and were torn out. Sometimes, it is a merely replacing a few panels of drywall. More severe cases need entire walls replaced. We call certified contractors in for help with this process.
