New Orleans Sewage Water Damage
One of the worst types of water damage that can hit a New Orleans home is not only water but includes sewage. This bathroom had a large amount of sewage in the floor around the toilet. Fortunately, the grout seal remained intact and no seepage went under the floor as verified through the use of moisture detection equipment and probes. The sheetrock around the toilet got measured above the water line and removed due to wicking of the water. The techs commonly treat these types of cleanup jobs with a biocide to make the water safer to handle. This action also opens up the wall cavity to allow for complete drying. Afterward, the technicians wipe down all surfaces with disinfectants and antimicrobials to ensure all affected areas get sanitized.
