Sewage Backup Cleaning
If the water in your home contains sewage, then the situation is much more dangerous and can potentially lead to extensive damage. The most common ways sewage can end up in your property is through a sewage backup or if your property is flooded by water already contaminated by sewage. Sewage water has the potential to cause permanent damage because the materials that absorb the water also absorb the waste materials with it. The waste materials in sewage also contain bacteria and toxins that can put your health at risk.
Our technicians at ServiceMaster Professional Services can provide safe and effective sewage cleanup. We will extract all sewage water and restore or replace the affected materials depending on the damage. We will also make sure all affected areas are cleaned and restored so they are safe for use.
