In July 2023, AllAces Cleaning and Restoration received a call for flood damage restoration in Nundah, Queensland. This call was a result of a significant toilet leak incident. The leak was so severe that it caused water to spread to the ceiling of the middle level of the property, resulting in noticeable and potentially damaging stains on the ceiling.
AllAces Cleaning and Restoration’s IICRC certified technicians quickly responded to the site. After inspecting the damage, our technician, armed with specialised knowledge and tools, commenced the flood damage restoration process. A key part of this process was the installation of a 2×1 metre drying mat, along with a boost box and a blue dehumidifier, strategically placed in the hallway near the affected toilet. This setup was essential for efficiently reducing the moisture levels around the door frame, critical to preventing further damage. Additionally, the equipment aimed to minimise the warping (cupping) of the floorboards, a common and problematic effect of water damage.
The prompt and expert response from AllAces Cleaning and Restoration led to a successful flood damage restoration. The water leak from the toilet was completely resolved, eliminating the immediate source of damage.
When a water leak invades a home, it can be a catalyst for various significant issues, notably the high risk of mould growth and potential damage to the structural integrity of the property. Mould can quickly become a serious concern, not just for the property itself, but also for the health of those residing within. Additionally, the structural damage that can result from prolonged exposure to water can compromise the safety and stability of the home.
It’s vital to recognise that the severity of these problems escalates the longer the water is allowed to remain in the home. As time passes, the water seeps deeper into materials, causing more extensive damage and making the restoration process more complicated and costly. This escalation in damage underscores the critical need for immediate action following a flood or water leaks.
