3 Cleanup Steps to Expect After a Toilet Floods

If your company property in South Laguna Beach, CA, has experienced sewer damage then you may have decided to contact a water damage restoration service. There are a few steps you can expect to see these professionals perform when restoring your property.

1. Cleanup, Drying, and Sanitation of the Area

The first steps you can expect to see your restoration company take is to clean up, drying and sanitation of the effected area. If the water damage comes from toilet overflow or sewer backup then they may also contact your sewage company for any appropriate steps. When it comes to water damage it's important to get the water removed in the area dry as quickly as possible to help prevent possible mold. Sanitation of the affected area is important because it helps prevent potential contaminants from settling in to the property.

2. Inspection for Related Damages

In most cases, especially with sewer damage, you may see the professionals checking for any related damages. This may mean damp carpeting or flooring where water could have soaked in, damaged drywall, and other damage. Dampness left by the water could lead to potential mold growth. If problems are found, you can expect the restoration company to consult with you about making these repairs as well.

3. Replacement and Repairs

After the area is cleaned up and inspected for further damage, the repair and replacement process can begin. In some cases you may want to completely replace damaged property as opposed to repairing it. One example of this may be a flooded toilet in need of a new sealing gasket.

A water damage restoration service is trained on how to properly deal with sewer damage and other water damage types. This means they know how to properly clean up and dry the flooded area as well as how to sanitize it against potential contamination. You may also see these professionals inspect for related damages before they began any replacement and repairs.
