We've all faced it at some point in our lives, the dreaded situation of water flowing over the bowl in the bathroom!  It's one thing if it happens in your own home.  You're typically able to pull the water shut off, take care of business and clean up relatively quickly.

Things get trickier when it happens in your business.   Is a customer going to notify you if they clog a toilet, or will they quietly exit the restaurant knowing the destruction that waits for the next person?  How about if a sewer problem results in a back up overnight, and you walk in the next day to find a disaster?

These scenarios are much more complicated to clean up, and can potentially be hazardous.  Beyond that, it may prevent you from being able to open your establishment at all until it's cleaned up. 

I remember this situation recently at a Starbucks in Hurst.  I had planned a meeting there at 10a, and found the doors to be locked, and two cheery baristas waiting outside offering up iced coffee.  Iced coffee?  I'm not sure why this is a thing, but needless to say I was very disappointed I didn't have access to HOT coffee and watched about 30 people try to gain access to the restaurant in the hour I talked to my client.  Imagine how much revenue was lost during the time they had to keep their doors locked.

Our experts at SERVPRO are IICRC certified, and know how to deal with such situations quickly and thoroughly.  It may involve biohazard suits, but depending on the situation, it may be prudent for us to use these.  We'll clean up the mess, discard of the waste in an approved manner, and then disinfect the area.  We'll even remove any flooring or walls that may need to be replaced, but hopefully cleaning and drying will do the trick. 

Our teams will assess the situation, suggest a plan, and keep you in the loop about our progress, and any complications discovered during the clean up.  We recommend storing our number in your phone now: 817.232.3333.  This is the second best number to know after an emergency other than 911!  We'll do our very best to make it "Like it never even happened." and enable you to return to business.
