Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

It is More Than Just a Roof Leak

5/29/2018 (Permalink)

Black water is nothing to mess with.

It is easy to just clean up the water and never consider the source. Contaminants hide everywhere. You may think that the water from the toilet bowl is fine to just clean up if no solids are present, however that is not always the case. Even daily cleanings of your toilet bowl can leave behind germs and bacteria. It is a known fact that the water in your bowl after you flush holds millions of bacteria. If you have an overflow these bacteria are now in your carpet and padding, or under your baseboards and soaking into your walls. 

The same is true from a water intrusion from a leak in ceiling or roof. The water passes through materials, such as insulation and drywall, that contaminate the water and leave behind bacteria. If insulation is left wet in your attic it can also promote growth. 

It is very important to have issues like these cleaned and dried by professionals. Let SERVPRO of Sumter help.
