Overflowing Sink in Your Chicago Home

6/28/2017 (Permalink)

Prevent the overflowing sink from turning into a full blown mold infestation by contacting SERVPRO right away after the accident is recognized.

Be Aware that Water Damage can Grow From Small to Large to Mold in Days While You are Deciding on a Water Damage Restoration Company

A sink which overflows can create just a small amount of water damage if it is caught quickly. However, if it is unchecked for several hours, the results can be devastating. It is one of those human errors that are seemingly small, but that can lead to huge consequences. Plus, if the overflow occurs on an upper level of your residence, you can easily wind up with a total home water loss.
 
It is important that water removal is done as soon as possible to prevent further damages in your Chicago home. You need the professional help of SERVPRO, a water damage restoration company. We have the training and experience required to get your home back to its preloss condition.
 
You may have the overflow from a child playing in the bathroom, or from something foreign being placed in the sink and clogging the drain. At SERVPRO we understand the stress of such a disaster, so we are available 24/7 to help you out when you contact us.
 
Water from your sink is safe for consumption. Therefore, there are not many bacteria which can cause harm right away. The threat, however, develops if a fair amount of time passes before you have the water cleaned up. Temperature and time let bacteria and mold grow and thrive, which heightens the contamination and water damage. Our technicians check your home for hidden moisture or mold growth once we have all the standing water cleaned up, as mold can begin growing in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
 
We also communicate with your insurance company, so it is a worry that you do not have to handle on your own. Instead, you can focus on your family and their needs while we take care of getting the coverage that you deserve.
 
An overflowing sink is not something to take lightly, as it can cause lots of damage to your home, so contact us at SERVPRO of Marquette Park/West Lawn/Ford City as soon as you are aware that you have a problem. We can be reached anytime at (773) 337-3993.
