Two toddlers playing in bathtub; lots of suds, water Bathrooms are a common source of water damage. SERVPRO techs are always ready-to-go to restore your home.

SERVPRO Bathroom Water Restoration Tactics

Aside from the kitchen, a Lafayette home's bathroom is one of the more likely areas to see water damage from plumbing or fixture issues. Shower leaks and sink or toilet overflows can do hundreds to thousands of dollars of damage to walls and flooring, or even to lower floors if the bathroom is higher up. Fortunately, property owners do not have to face these concerns without help or guidance from highly trained professionals.

Water restoration by Lafayette SERVPRO technicians can restore affected residential bathrooms to a clean and operational condition per restoration industry guidelines set by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. Restoration includes:

  • Thorough inspections.
  • Sanitation with OSHA-approved SERVPRO cleaning solutions.
  • Structural drying with powerful dehumidifiers.

Addressing Shower and Bathroom Water Damage Efficiently

When SERVPRO professionals visit the property, they can get started on inspection and formulating an effective and efficient plan based on data collected from moisture measurement tools. Water damage inspection equipment can determine:

  • How much moisture is in the nearby wood, carpet, drywall, and other structural materials
  • Whether moisture has impacted subfloors, wall framing, ceiling joists, or insulation
  • Potential areas of water damage behind walls, floors, and ceilings are identifiable by changes in temperature consistent with moisture

SERVPRO's inspection process can be performed with minimal demolition aside from what is necessary to save the property and inspect specific materials with penetrating moisture meters, often used on carpets. Non-penetrating sensors, which assess surfaces with electromagnetic pads, are ideal for shallow-depth readings of materials like drywall or floor tiles. Infrared imaging, meanwhile, provides visual data for inspecting potentially water-damaged areas. 

Inspection tools are used throughout mitigation to ensure that water damage drying succeeds.
