Removing Flood Damage from a Wayne Bathroom

In black water damage situations, like ground floods, homeowners in Wayne can expect to pay an average of $7 per square foot for cleanup services alone. Many porous materials require replacement after exposure due to the risks posed by chemicals, bacteria, and sewage carried in by floodwaters. This estimated cost does not even factor in the expenses needed to replace furniture, drywall, flooring, and electrical components.

If your Wayne home needs flood damage mitigation that can save you time, money, and stress, SERVPRO is ready to send a crew to your residence to get started right away. This team not only offers disaster cleanup but can also remediate mold and repair structures so that your home is restored as thoroughly as possible after a disaster. SERVPRO also uses specialized inventory systems to keep track of your belongings and can disinfect them off-site to minimize property losses while bolstering your insurance claim with comprehensive documentation.

Electricity Safety After Bathroom Flooding

  • If standing water in your bathroom has made contact with outlets, electrical devices, or power cords, stay away from the bathroom.
  • If you need to access the breakers, never do so if they are in a room filled with standing water. Call your utility company for assistance with shutting off the power.
  • Electrical appliances and tools should be at least ten feet away from wet surfaces to minimize electrical shock risks.
  • Have a licensed professional service wet electronics before trying to operate them. Do not attempt to turn on or use waterlogged devices yourself.

SERVPRO Sanitizes Your Bathroom

SERVPRO technicians can safely remove solid debris and waste, spray down surfaces with EPA-registered antimicrobials, and eliminate discoloration and microbial growth from tile grout with specialized cleaners. Technicians can use flood cuts approximately 12 inches above saturated drywall for wall cavity drying, insulation removal, and eventual replacement during structural restoration.

SERVPRO of Wayne restores homes with cleanup service that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (973) 546-4977 to have an emergency response team at your home within hours of your initial contact.
