Water Removal

Even a small amount of water can have a damaging effect on your home. If caused by a sump pump failure, wicked weather, or a young child trying out his new boat in the toilet, when a water emergency occurs, immediate action should follow.

It will limit the damage, save your property, and dry the area before mold and mildew become a very big problem. We’re here to help with your various water damage restoration in Chattanooga, TN needs.

How We Can Fix Issues

Only a few inches of water can threaten your home or office. Yet, the harmful effects can be greatly reduced by the prompt and reliable water removal of a Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional. We are fully trained and certified to remove moisture from areas damaged by sewage or excessive water. And we use an approved process to protect you from mold, mildew, germs, and hidden odors. You can count on the professionals at Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain to remove water. But also, to clean and deodorize your home for your safety.

There are different types of wastewater you should know about.

If water damage has occurred in your home or business, you may be able to begin the water extraction yourself. Using a wet dry vacuum, and/or a pump, remove as much water as possible. The affected area should then be dried using fans and dehumidifiers. If possible, open windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate and further dry out the area.

Any personal belongings or furniture that are wet should be moved to a different drying area such as a patio or garage. If they remain in the flooded area, they add to the humidity levels and lengthen the drying process. This encourages mold and mildew growth. Personal belongings and upholstered furniture should remain for at least 48 hours to fully dry.

If the amount of water present is more than your equipment can remove, it is extremely important to call the professionals at Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain. In as few as 24 hours, floodwaters that once were ‘clean’ can change. They become more dangerous greywater or blackwater. This puts you and your family at a much greater health risk than from simple water damage.

Basement Flood Cleanup

If your basement does flood, what should you do? Call Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain and speak to the experts to learn the first steps to fix the problems in your basement.

Floods can occur at any time, and a basement flood can be the result of several causes.   You may have poor drainage in the basement, heavy storms, or flash floods. Perhaps a sump pump that is not working correctly or has failed to work at all. Maybe an appliance failure. Each of these can lead to basement flooding. Basements often have floor drains intended to prevent damage by removing excess water. But problems can occur that prevent them from working correctly. Water cannot be removed from a drain clogged with dirt and debris. While homes often have sump pumps, if they fail to work you will experience basement flooding. No matter the cause, if there’s flooding in your basement, it is important to remove the water as quickly as possible and begin the drying process.

Other Actions To Take With a Flooded

Call Your Electrician

In the event a basement flood occurs and should be cleaned up, it may be possible to begin the process yourself. But please remember that safety should come first. Basements often contain hazardous situations regarding electricity. Often a circuit breaker is in the basement, so an electrician should definitely be your first call. If the circuit breaker is not in your basement, quickly shut off the power and gas to your home. Any type of electronics or appliances that touch flood water are unsafe. Avoid them! An electrician can figure out if it is safe to enter the basement and begin the water removal process.

Call Your Insurance Company

There are two tasks homeowners are responsible for maintaining that may prevent flooding. These include some pump maintenance and removal of debris from gutters and downspouts. If you have a landlord, please check with him or her to ensure that this maintenance is regularly completed. Ultimately, you are responsible for it. Homeowner’s and renter’s insurance often need an addition to your regular policy if you want flood insurance coverage. Don’t wait until it’s too late before trying to make this addition to your insurance policy. While working through the cleanup process, your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professionals will work with your insurance company. We want to make your claim goes smoothly.

If It Happens Again

What if your basement floods repeatedly, even when you perform maintenance and regular repairs to your property? Chances are you have overlooked something. Large floods in the basement are often the result of faulty plumbing. If the plumbing has been checked and approved, the blame may go to the location of your home. If you notice floodwaters in your basement that come and go, your property may be on topsoil that becomes saturated by water. The flooding in your basement occurs as water levels change underground. Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professionals will install a new sump pump to resolve this issue and prevent further problems from occurring. Because this is a big job, it should only be completed by a licensed, professional plumber or specialist in basement waterproofing. This is not a task recommended to DIYers.

Commercial Roof Drains

There are many different types of commercial roofs. While some have a pitch like a residential roof, many others are flat. Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain is equipped to unclog and clean all types of commercial roof drains and get them working like new again.

The flat roofs of commercial buildings often have drains around the perimeter. These drains lead to vertical pipes that connect to horizontal pipes underground.  They then lead to municipal storm sewers. Your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional can clean these drains mechanically. We restore the flow of water, preventing water collection on the roof of the building.

Your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional will thoroughly clean the using electro-mechanical cable machines. To break through tough roof drain clogs, high-pressure water jetting may also be used. Your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional will provide a visual inspection of your roof drainage system. Then they quote a fair and competitive price for cleaning. This is determined in part by the diameter and length of the clogged pipe.

Roof drain cleaning is also required on commercial buildings with pitched roofs. These gutters connect 4-inch diameter vertical roof drainpipes to horizontal pipes underground. They then flow into municipal storm drains below the street level. Your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional has both the equipment and experience needed to completely clean commercial roof drains. We restore them to full working capability.
