Sloan Valve Failure Causing Water Leak

Rescue Restoration received a call from a commercial property, indicating that their bathroom had a Sloan Valve failure, needing water damage restoration. A Sloan Valve is a flush valve used to manage water flow in a toilet plumbing system. When pulling the lever, the valve will open, allowing the water to flush the fixture and ensuring a reliable flush.

Our team saw water all over the bathroom because of the valve failure. The water was clear, indicating a Category 1 situation. Nonetheless, you wouldn’t want standing water in your bathroom as it can lead to many consequences.

Water Damage Restoration Services

Our team brought in an extractor that removes water, and we set up a dehumidifier to stabilize the situation until the next day. This was the first step of the water damage cleanup and the water damage restoration process.

Next, we removed baseboards, lifted carpets to dry them out, and disinfected all areas. This removes moisture from the given areas and is a very crucial part of mold remediation and water damage restoration. It ensures the affected area will be clean of bacteria, preventing future health risks and further damage.

Structural drying was the next step Rescue Restoration took. This is a critical component of the process. It involves the use of dehumidifiers and air movers. It’s important to restore the affected areas to their pre-damage condition efficiently and effectively.
