Water Removal after a Tub Overflows

Taking a bath often comes across as playtime for many youngsters. When rubber duckies meet a pretend tidal wave, your Bedford home's bathroom floor can end up soaked. Adding a "waterfall" to their bathtub oasis can flood a large area in your residence. SERVPRO is always available to help when your house needs emergency restoration work.

Emergencies like this require someone able to respond immediately to your emergency in Bedford with water removal equipment and a skilled crew. SERVPRO technicians understand that soaking up the water that ran over the sides of your tub is not enough. Water drains through tiny cracks with ease and rather quickly. This lets it follow the path of least resistance through your floor and down the inside of nearby walls. 

No matter how absorbent your towels are or how well you mop, water that winds up inside your floors, lower-level ceilings, and the walls can hide until our specialists set up our equipment. Our Injectidry equipment helps immensely with pulling water out of your home, wherever we find it. The reason we can use it in so many different situations is because of the flexible tubing sections that come in different diameters.

When we use the Injectidry to dry out the floor below your tub and above-head on a lower level of your residence, we often go in through an already existing hole. Lighting fixtures in the ceiling are perfect for this, in most cases. When we need an alternative, our building services crew helps with other options. Before we do this, we check to see if the area retains water that requires draining, or if we merely need to dry out the cavity. 

The debris that gets stirred up when airflow currents sweep across the surfaces inside dead-space areas we treat can end up pushed out of that space. Because we want to keep the air clean, we use air scrubbers to help with pulling dust out of the air.

For flooring, we use the Injectidry's tubing and panels to extract water through the Water Separator and minimize the work our dehumidification machines must do to get your home dry again. Even a small incident involving a tub's overflow can increase the water vapor inside your house. We address this to prevent any future water damage or microbial infestation. Both of these problems can start with only a slight increase in moisture. SERVPRO works hard to mitigate damage and prevent future problems for our customers.
