SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County Conducts Restoration

An overflowing toilet caused significant water damage to this home in New Berlin, WI.  Because this was contaminated water, all the porous materials that came in contact with the water had to be thrown away or replaced.

Phase 1 of this job was called the mitigation portion.  This requires SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County technicians to move contents, tear out whatever needs to be tore out, clean and disinfect salvageable contents and the remaining structure. 

Phase 2 is the rebuild portion of the job, sometimes called the repairs.  In this photo, you will see how SERVPRO has coordinated for the new drywall to be installed.

Drying Behind The Scenes

Coring Holes

SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha was contacted about a water loss due to a hose bib left on outside while landscaping was being done.

They used coring holes to get behind the wall and cabinets so that flood cuts would not have to be done.

Drying Time

Moisture Out

The crew used a instrument called Injectidry.

Injectidry is used to dry hidden areas of moisture and under various types of flooring and subflooring. The panels can even be placed on plaster walls or other dense materials to help with a drying process.
