Bathrooms Are a Common Source of Water Damage in Phoenix Homes

It comes as no surprise that many of the flooding and other water damage experienced in Phoenix homes start in the bathroom. Bathrooms are a common source of water damage which can be created by overflowing toilets, burst under sink pipes, overflowing bathtubs or water pipe leaks underneath the flooring. Luckily, SERVPRO of East Phoenix has the water restoration specialists to help recover from the water damage.

Not all water damage can be spotted in bathrooms

While an overflowing toilet or bathtub is frustrating, at least a homeowner is usually immediately aware when the damage happens, assuming they are home at the time! Unfortunately, there are leaks that can happen behind the walls, going on for days, weeks or even months that don’t get found until the damage is quite profound, including the presence of mold. That’s why water damage in bathrooms can cause little to significant damage. Even the more “obvious” issues can go undetected if the homeowner is out of town for any significant amount of time, such as “snowbirds” who only frequent the state part-time. Regardless, water damage needs immediate attention to help restore the bathroom quickly.

What happens when water damage occurs

When the SERVPRO water damage team arrives, they immediately get to work to assess the damage. First, they’ll inspect the damage and make an assessment in order to be address the issue. Next, they’ll use their expertise with advanced equipment to extract the water using powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove water from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth. After that is the drying and dehumidification to help prevent odors and mold from growing. Next, they’ll clean all the restorable items and structures damaged by the water using several proven techniques as well as sanitizing treatments to remove odors and deodorize your property. The last step is restoration, restoring your home to its pre-water damage condition. This might include minor repairs such as replacing drywall, tile floor repair, painting, or installing new carpet. Depending on the extent of the damage, the repairs may be more significant which can include tarping, boarding up, packing and moving, etc. SERVPRO of East Phoenix can simplify the restoration process by handling both the initial water damage mitigation and rebuilding the affected areas that will bring a building back to full functionality…like it never happened!
