Professional Services for Water Damage in Your Home

One of the most common causes of water damage in homes in Wilmington is overflowing toilets. Imagining your life without toilets is probably difficult, but there are many things that can go wrong with one that is not properly maintained. Children attempting to flush toys, general clogs, and septic tanks not draining correctly are all situations that can cause problems. Most homeowners thankfully are quick to discover an overflowing toilet, meaning they can act quickly to alleviate the issue.

Depending on the location of the bathroom in your Wilmington home and the type of overflow you are dealing with, you must approach the situation from different angles. A second-story bathroom or an overflow that contains sewage presents obstacles that are unique in handling this kind of water damage.

When it comes to sewage, you want the expert help of the professionals at SERVPRO. Not only can we clean up all the water and dry your home back out, but we also need to combat the smells of the mess left behind.

The first step in getting rid of odors is to of course get rid of what is causing it – in this case, the sewage. Odor problems from water damage occur because wet materials are not dry. Once the moisture level returns to normal, a lot of the odor problems go away as well.

In most situations with deodorization, odors are coming from multiple sources. To find all of them and figure out the specific methods to fight each of them requires technical equipment and much knowledge. Instead, SERVPRO techs use various methods to combat the smells.

One kind of deodorization agent does not work on every odor, so we use more than one type to treat the various odors we encounter in these situations. Plus, we ensure that you as our customer like the smell of the professional product we choose to apply.

When it comes down to it, SERVPRO of New Hanover is the one to trust with a toilet overflow disaster. Not only can we clean everything up, but we ensure that your home in Castle Hayne, Wilmington, or Wrightsville Beach is back to itself again when you call us at (910) 762-8180.
