Water Damage When Clogged Pipes Drain the Holiday Joy in Your Fort Collins Home Extra usage of water during the holiday season can lead to clogs.

Using Water Cleanup Services for Backed Up Drains in a Fort Collins Property

It happens more often than you might want to admit but some things that should never end up going down the drains in your Fort Collins home do precisely that. While these items might seem to disappear without problem initially, other debris that washes down through your drains can get stuck, accumulate, and cause problems.  

During the holiday season, entertaining family and friends does not seem like it would lead to water damage in your Fort Collins home. However, once you begin running water for the washing machine, the dishwasher, showers, and anything else, clogged drains can become overloaded quickly, backing up into your home can bring smelly water into your living space.  

A call to a local plumber quickly fixes, in most cases, the cause of the water's appearance, but plumbers do nothing about the water on your floors. SERVPRO technicians have experience in turning a messy disaster into a clean and sanitary area again. We have the equipment and tools to make such catastrophes go away, “Like it never even happened.”  

Our technicians remove the water with hand-held extraction devices. The debris the water brought with it as it pushed its way out of your drains requires our technicians to use personal protective equipment (PPE) so we stay protected from anything that might cause illness or injury. We have to be mindful that the clogged area could have occurred outside of your home and involved matter from other homes besides your residence.  

Any residue that spilled over onto your floors also contaminates vanity and cabinet surfaces. We clean and sanitize these with effective cleansers that do not strip painted or varnished surfaces. We also make sure that we wipe all surfaces afterward. Floors need to receive treatment that makes them safe, as well which can include a thorough cleaning with similar cleaning agents or cleaning carpets. Our IICRC-certified Carpet Cleaning Technician (CCT) helps protect carpets from succumbing to damage by applying specific shampoos to the affected area.  

SERVPRO of Fort Collins can make the remnants of a backed up drain disappear from your home and life. We leave no trace of the disaster behind by cleaning every trace of it away, including in the basin where it occurred. Call us at (970) 493-6335, so you don't have to deal with this kind of mess while still protecting your home and your family.
