Water Damage Cleanup in Your Colonial Heights Home from Sink Overflow

1/26/2018 (Permalink)

An overflowing sink in your home can cause extensive damage and requires immediate professional restoration services.

SERVPRO Thoroughly Restores Your Home after Water Damage

An overflowing sink can create more than just a big wet mess in your Colonial Heights home. If it gets out of control or goes unnoticed for a while, it can result in severe water damage to your property and flooding inside your home. If it is in an upstairs bathroom, you are possibly looking at damage to the room underneath it as well.

Water damage like this to your Colonial Heights home is a big job and should be left to the professionals to clean up. With our experience and training, SERVPRO knows where to find any hidden moisture inside walls and ceilings. We have all the tools to get your home dry again, plus get rid of any additional damage, such as mold growth.

After arriving at your home, our first step is extracting any standing water. If needed, we have truck-mounted pumps to help us do this job. The water is removed, and we can then see if any materials in your structure need replacing.

SERVPRO techs also look for any hidden moisture. Using special infrared cameras and moisture detectors we can find any water that has made its way into walls and ceilings. This water is also cleaned up, and if we detect any mold growth, we clean that with solvents and disinfect the affected area.

Thoroughly drying your structure is also necessary, as pumps do not get rid of everything. We need to return the air inside your home to its normal humidity as well. Industrial dehumidifiers, fans, and air-movers help us to get your home dried out again. These machines are checked on a daily basis and moved when needed to ensure the fastest drying time.

Once the drying process is complete, our IICRC certified technicians use special cleaning agents and deodorizing materials to treat any areas of the home which were affected. Water may have damaged materials in your home such as subflooring or drywall. If needed, we work with a contractor to reconstruct the areas that need replacing to get your home to its preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol understands how overwhelming any water damage can be in your home in Bristol, Marilyn Hills, or Blountville. That is why we are available at any time to help you out when you give us a call at (423) 245-5552.
