How To Handle Water Damage In Your Glendale Home Caused By An Overflowing Bathtub

Water can spill over the edge of a bathtub after someone leaves the bathtub faucet running accidentally. This can happen if the person leaves the tub plugged and the water runs for several hours. It could be your fault or that of a child playing without adult supervision.

Do not worry if this happens because most homeowner’s insurance policies include coverage for an accidental or sudden loss like water damage from a running faucet. If your home in Glendale has serious water damage caused by an overflowing bathtub, it is advisable to hire professionals who can help you dry the affected areas to prevent further destruction. The professionals at SERVPRO can assist you to restore your residence to its normal condition.

If the bathroom is upstairs, water from the tub could create small bubbles in the ceiling of the rooms below. If this occurs, the ceiling could begin leaking water and get discolored, and you could incur some expensive repair bills. The ceiling could also sag if a large amount of water leaks. Bathtub overflow can also ruin drywall easily, causing it to weaken beyond recovery. The water could also ruin your flooring, particularly if it is made of wood or linoleum.

SERVPRO franchise professionals have the tools required to remove water and moisture from your bathroom and other affected areas. When we arrive at your property, we can assess the damage and negotiate with your insurance firm to help minimize your out-of-pocket expenses. We can then take steps to restore your home. We can remove as much standing water as possible using wet/dry vacuums so that the affected areas can dry quickly.

We can then use air movers to direct airflow on the affected areas, causing evaporation to occur. Our technicians place these high-powered fans on various areas of a property to dry floors, walls, and other affected areas. Our Technicians can also replace or repair any damaged building materials like drywall and ceiling tiles. After we complete the work, the damage can appear “Like it never even happened.”

If your property has water damage, contact SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale through our emergency hot-line at (323) 255-1000. Our certified experts can determine the extent of the damage and work quickly to restore your home to its preloss condition.
