A leak from a toilet may seem like a little issue; more of a headache then an actual issue, but even a small amount of water can call a big mess.

Flooding And Appliance Breaks in Portland

When people think of damage in their home or office from flooding they often think of crazy heavy rains and flash floods. But flooding and water damage can occur with just an appliance break or a toilet overflow. As water runs and spreads around the property water is seeping in and soaking up into materials like sheetrock and insulation causing them to break down. Materials like sheetrock and insulation do not hold up well to water, especially for sustained periods of time. Our SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne team of skilled professionals will work to preform flood cuts of affected insulation and sheetrock from the floor up to four feet as needed, helping to make the repairs that much more smooth to patch in new installation and sheetrock.
