Causes For Bathroom Flooding In Your Arlington Home
No one ever wants to open their bathroom door to find that there is a flood all over the carpet or floor. However, bathroom floods can happen when you least expect it, and it is often a problem that is panic-inducing for anyone who does not know how to fix it. No matter how it happened, you want to take care of it right away to avoid serious water damage from happening, which is why you need the experts from SERVPRO helping you to clean the mess.
Common causes of flood damage in your Arlington home bathroom include
- Clogging in your pipes or drains. Toilet tissue can lead to blocked pipes easily. When you flush with a clog present, more water fills the bowl and spills onto the floor.
- Another common reason for bathroom flooding is malfunctions.
- A toilet float that is malfunctioning can cause water to fill and overflow continuously. Burst pipes can also cause major damage from flooding.
Flooding can happen because of carelessness as well. If you don't keep an eye on water running in a clogged tub or sink, you'll have a huge mess on your hands. When you find a flooded bathroom for any reason, turn off the water supply to your sink, toilet, or bathtub at the valve right away. Then contact our technicians at SERVPRO as soon as you can. We have the expertise and tools to deal with just about any flooding problem.
We take care of all the standing water first with truck-mounted pumps. Then, we can get into the bathroom with industrial fans and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the area out. Repairs that are needed are made, and if the flooring is ruined, including subflooring, we take care of this as well. Special moisture meters are also used to detect any hidden moisture or mold to ensure that the affected areas are completely clear of any more damage.
Call us! We are available 24 hours a day for emergencies in the Arlington area.
