Oradell Toilet Backup Leaves Sewage-Tainted Water Damage
The image shown in the Before Photo of this Oradell bathroom gives the viewer a peek at how bad a sewage cleanup job can look upon arrival. This bathroom has multiple areas of water and solid waste on the floor. This contaminated water can hold a host of bacteria and pathogens, and neither the residents of the home nor pets should come into contact with it. SERVPRO techs wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when handling this type of water to ensure it is cleaned up safely and disposed of properly. The After Photo shows the true extent of the damage done. Water wicked into the sheetrock, and several inches required removal to halt the absorption and open up the interior for drying. Techs also removed the cabinet and floor due to seepage.
