Tonawanda Basement Toilet Brings Severe Water Damage
A Tonawanda homeowner contacted SERVPRO to clean up a severe toilet backup. The techs arrived to a huge amount of solid waste and water on the bathroom floor. In the short amount of time it took the techs to arrive, the contaminated water seeped into the sheetrock and required removal by cutting over the waterline several feet above the floor to stop any further damage to the building materials. The techs wore protective clothing and treated the water with a professional biocide to lessen the hazards for handling this type of cleanup. After removing the water, the techs used their inspection equipment to determine the migration path of the water and ensure any areas in the home it could have gone get addressed and sanitized.
