The toilet decided to overflow
Flooding can happen almost anywhere! One of the more common places that water damage happens is a residential property. That being the case because they have SO many different outlets for water to become a problem. Kitchens, bathrooms and sprinkler systems are some of the major areas of issues.
For example, a call came in today from an older woman who was in distress over the fact that her basement bathroom had flooded into the other rooms causing a large amount of water damage in her walls, flooring, and carpet. A toilets valve broke and the water started to overflow. SERVPRO knew that with this kind of loss we had to get started ASAP. We sent our guys out to her home within 30 minutes to start to evaluate the disaster.
We realized very quickly that the amount of rooms affected were way more than the customer had thought. We started extracting the water and setting up air movers right away. Thank fully with that being done we were able to get the loss under control quickly and efficiently. This disaster could have been a lot worse if we would not have been able to get the water out as quickly as we did.
If you do have a fire, water, mold or asbestos disaster give SERVPRO a call today at (208) 523-5365. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
