Water Damage from Supply Line in Slidell Bathroom

Two main types of water damage come from a toilet. One is a clean water spill from a supply line, and the other is a sewage-filled mess from the bowl or sewer line. 

A homeowner in Slidell with water damage needed cleanup from water gushing from around the toilet. The water ran from the bathroom out into the carpeted hallway, and he assumed the carpet would be a loss. The homeowner turned off the water at the main shutoff for the house and put down towels to absorb as much water as possible until SERVPRO arrived.


The certified technicians handle every job they do with both professionalism and compassion. They know they are seeing homeowners on one of their worst days due to the damage to their houses, and the techs work hard using their state-of-the-art equipment and advanced cleaning methods to save as much as possible on every job. 

Extraction and Drying

After scoping the water loss area, the techs found the water did not seep under the tile in the bathroom or under the sink. Since it was a supply line break to the toilet, they could extract the water using weighted head attachments and dry it in place. The techs used a technique known as "floating" the carpet to ensure the padding dried completely. 

Monitoring the Drying Process

Measurements get taken in other areas of the home to determine what the baseline indoor humidity levels are at to set a drying goal for the bathroom. To avoid additional damages from incomplete drying of the structure, the technicians carefully monitor air moisture levels while the drying equipment does its job. The use of both air movers and dehumidifiers assists with rapidly bringing down the ambient humidity and dries the loss area quickly. 

Cleaning and Deodorization

Water has its own unique musty odor, and the techs use their exclusive cleaning formulas to wipe down all water loss affected surfaces. This action ensures there are no residual odors remaining within the bathroom or hallway once the restoration services complete.

SERVPRO of Slidell at (985) 649-1516 restores homes with water damage of any size and makes the water loss, "Like it never even happened."
