In Chicago, IL, there are a lot of things to do. The city is filled with restaurants, office buildings, sporting events, libraries, and cultural centers, and this is all in addition to activities on the lakefront. That being said, there is nothing worse than enjoying time on the town, or wrapping up a hard day’s work, only to return to property damage.
But at ServiceMaster by Metzler, we see many cases of sewage backups and leaks that involve contaminated water in the Chicagoland area. There are many reasons for this, and we address them all through our sewage cleaning services in Chicago, IL. We are available 24 hours a day and respond rapidly to prevent the damage from spreading.
The Dangers of Sewage Water
There are a variety of ways in which sewage and other forms of contaminated water can enter your property. Sewage backups are among the most common that we see, while other cases involve outside water that is already contaminated penetrating properties. This is more common in urban environments because of the population density (for example, higher concentrations of car fluids, garbage, and similar elements can get washed up in rain water).
Excess water and moisture can lead to severe property damage by itself, but sewage and other contaminants further compound the problem. Because of the bacteria and pathogens they carry, porous materials and items can be destroyed more easily, and anybody on the property will be at risk of suffering from illnesses or infections. If you notice any level of water damage on your property, it is important to contact restoration experts. When the situation potentially involves contaminated water, this is even more critical.
