Sewer backup into bathtub

Sewer backup into bathtub

Almost any plumbing fixture is capable of having the main sewer line backup grossly contaminated water into it.  In these types of floods, safety is the utmost priority.  The water which comes from the sewer usually contains bacteria and viruses that can be life long problems for humans if they become infected.

Roof leak from tree falling on house

Mold on inside of drywall

Mold on inside of drywall

Mold growth thrives in contained areas with very little air flow.  When excess water in drywall and wood studs is left for days or weeks, often times mold growth occurs.  At this point, the affected drywall should be removed and the wood studs require mold remediation procedures.  These steps are significantly more costly than drying them out when the flooding occurred.

When water damages or floods happen upstairs, the damage can be extensive downstairs.  This entire downstairs room needed to have all of the drywall removed because it was pulling away from the wood studs.  The removal of the drywall also allowed faster and more thorough drying of the wood studs so repairs could get started.
