SERVPRO Techs Can Handle Contaminated or Clean Water Cleanup in Suffern

Toilets in Suffern homes are a frequent cause of water damage. However, the outcomes can be vastly different depending on the type of water in the house. 

When SERVPRO handles water damage restoration in Suffern properties, the technicians identify the cause of the home disaster. A toilet backup can deliver gallons of sewage-tainted water within a home and ruin anything that absorbs the water. In the case of a tank leak or supply line coupling failure, the water can damage. Still, as long as the water cleanup efforts begin within 24 hours before it starts to degrade, it is considered clean with limited if any bacteria.  

When carpet gets affected by either of these water types, the outcome can vary. When carpeting absorbs contaminated water, there is very little chance to sanitize it for reuse. SERVPRO technicians need to safely extract the wastewater and dispose of the carpet using biohazard protocols. For a clean water carpet disaster, SERVPRO technicians can:

  • Perform water removal
  • Dry the carpet
  • Make no water spots remain through steam cleaning

SERVPRO of Southern Rockland County at (845) 400-4888 brings their professional water damage restoration services to the local Suffern community and is available 24/7.
