Tub, Sink & Toilet Water Overflows
An overflowed tub can cause extreme damage to a subfloor, carpet, drywall, ceiling below the tub, walls below the tub, etc. Depending on how quickly remediation occurs, many of these can be saved.
If you let the issue sit for several days the excess water will cause a strong odor and microbial growth will occur behind the drywall. Additionally, since the water has so much time to soak into the subfloor, the floor moisture content becomes very high. In these scenarios, the need to remove the subfloor to ensure proper drying is essential. In many cases, these can be saved by doing so which can save you time, money, and aggravation.

Water Mitigation FAQs
How long will it take my property to dry after flooding or other water damage?
Drying time after water damage in your home is determined by a combination of factors. Among these are the location, duration, and source of water; building materials in your home; weather conditions; and the speed at which emergency restoration services are provided. In order to determine when the drying process is complete, our trained technicians constantly monitor and evaluate the drying process. Depending on where your carpet is located, it may seem dry to the touch, but beneath the surface, it may still be wet.
My wood floors are wet and buckling. Will they have to be replaced?
During the drying process, any wood flooring that has been damaged by water in your home must be continually evaluated by qualified technicians. We use professional-grade drying systems and dehumidifiers to ensure wood floors dry effectively, and in order to restore their original shape. Complete drying may take up to three weeks, depending on the density of hardwood flooring and the type of finish used. As part of the claims process, the insurance adjuster will help you decide whether to refinish or replace the floors in your home.
