Redwood Valley Sewage Damage

EW doesn't even describe this mess!

Redwood Valley Sewage Damage

Imagine coming home after a long day at work to see your tub or toilets overrun by sewage. Or imagine a pipe bursting in your bathroom, leaking dirty water into the hallway and eventually the living room or your child's room. You didn't worry about picking up anything; no one was expecting sewage to come over and stay for a while.

But, it happens, and always when the timing is so inconvenient.

Boonville Water Damage Cleaning

Water damage and laundry rooom flooding make for a quick call to SERVPRO, 462-3848

Talk about a great start to your morning! A family from Boonville contacted us early one morning. Their laundry room was flooded because the washer machine overflowed, and was unattended for only an hour. The laundry room, part of the basement, and the kitchen were flooded with several inches of water. SERVPRO came in and extracted all the water, and made sure to dry out the affected rooms. When the owners called for our services, they asked for some advice on what to do until SERVPRO arrives to start the cleanup.

Here are some tips you can use if you face a water cleanup situation:

  1. Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  2. Turn off circuit breakers for wet parts of the building, when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
  3. Shut off the source of water if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source.
  4. Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  5. Be sure to not use any electrical appliances.
  6. Pick up books, newspapers, magazines or other colored items on wet carpets or floors. This can cause staining.
  7. Do not enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards.

If you ever experience a flood in your home, don't worry. SERVPRO can come clean up the damage, like the damage never even happened. 707-462-3848 will reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
