Park Ridge Toilet Backup Drenches Carpet and Needs Water Damage Cleanup
This Park Ridge basement had a large amount of water on the carpet from a toilet backup. The homeowner brought in SERVPRO for the water cleanup. As shown in the Before Photo, the red glue-down carpet had already started to lose adhesion from the water exposure. The technicians needed to remove a large amount of the floor covering to extract the water and dry the concrete slab substrate. Fortunately, the flooring in the bathroom did not require removal. The After Photo shows the extent of the controlled demolition needed for the baseboards and floor removal in the basement. Because the homeowner started the cleanup of the mess so rapidly, the moisture did not have time to wick into the walls and saved the homeowner the expense of that repair.
