A toilet overflow on the main level of a home caused extensive damage to main level kitchen and hallway flooring, as well as basement ceiling, wall and floor damage.
On February 14, 2012, the main level bathroom toilet overflowed in a home in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania causing sewer damage to both the main and basement levels of the home.
Main level sewer damage included hardwood floors in the kitchen, hallway, bathroom and foyer. Additionally, sewage and water seeped into the fully-finished basement through the ceiling, causing damage to the ceiling, drywall and the carpet.
The call was received at ACCORD Restoration at 9:30 p.m. By 10:30 p.m. ACCORD’s clean-up crew was there beginning the clean-up process. Kitchen damage included hardwood floors under custom cabinets, therefore cabinets and countertops had to be removed in order to be saved.
